Propecia (Finasteride)

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Other names: Proscar
Because the liver, as our ‘waste disposal unit’, will eliminate toxins and waste products properly when it is working efficiently, we need to keep it functioning in peak condition, especially at the menopause when it is clearing out our ‘old’ hormones. This is a very gentle detox regime. Days 1 to 2: cut out tea, coffee and alcohol to prepare your body for the cleanse. Days 3 to 7: first thing in the morning, before you have eaten anything, drink this liver ‘flush’ to help your body get rid of toxins and give you a ‘spring clean’. In a liquidizer mix:
200ml (8fl oz) freshly squeezed lemon juice
200ml (8fl oz) spring or mineral water
1 clove of fresh garlic
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cm (1/2 inch) fresh ginger root.
If you can’t drink all that lemon juice, use organic apple juice instead with a squeeze of lemon. Blend to a smooth liquid and drink slowly.
Drink some apple juice afterwards if you have an aftertaste, and fifteen minutes later drink a cup of hot peppermint tea. Then eat normally but keep your meals very simple so that your body has the chance to eliminate toxins. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables salads, stir-fried vegetables, vegetable soups, brown rice, porridge oats, etc. You may have headaches or flu-like symptoms for the first couple of days, which are indications that you are detoxifying. You must eat well to keep your blood sugar up. You can repeat this programme every couple of months if you feel you benefit from it.
It should be clear from what has gone before that herbal remedies can be very effective in treating the liver, with dandelion and milk thistle at the top of the list. Both these herbs have the ability to help the cleansing process, while milk thistle is also capable of stimulating production of new liver cells.
Feverfew has received a lot of media attention as an ‘anti-migraine’ herb. It really should be used daily as a preventative rather than taken at the time of an attack. A study at the London Migraine Clinic and reported in the British Medical Journal showed remarkable results using this herb.
