Herbal Healing Methods for Liver Health

Liver Tonic

If you are looking for herbal healing for liver health, this may be just what your looking for. It is a powerful liver tonic that helps rebuild the liver and is useful in recovering from hepatitis, liver sclerosis, and toxicity from a bad diet. The ingredients are as follows:

Oregon Grape Root-1 part
Wild Yam Root-1 part
Dandelion Root, raw-1 part
Licorice-one quarter part

Simmer three ounces of the herbs in one quart of distilled water for 45 minutes. Strain, bottle in a tightly sealed jar, and refrigerate. Take two tablespoons three to four times a day between meals. Do not add sweetening. If a sweeter taste is desired, more licorice content may be added.


Herbal Healing Method for Liver Ailments and Indigestion
