Love Your Liver

If your liver is unloved then you’ll likely have trouble keeping your acne away permanently. Sure you may be able to “cure” your skin for some weeks or even months at a time, but your acne is likely to eventually come back. You’ll also very likely need to rely on taking supplements indefinitely to correct imbalances that your unloved liver is contributing to.

The idea of this treatment plan is to not ever have to rely on using a treatment or to take supplements indefinitely or “for the rest of your life” so it is so, so, very important to work on rebalancing any internal system or organ that it not functioning as well as it should.

What is an unloved liver?

An unloved liver is a liver that’s not functioning at its best. This can happen when a liver is a little too overloaded with either physical or emotional toxins (or both), or if there is blood deficiency or blood stagnation in the body.

I always recommend my clients who have a liver that is not functioning at is full capacity to visit an acupuncturist to get a full internal diagnosis. Look for a good acupuncturist in your local area.

How does an unloved liver cause acne?

Our liver is an extremely important organ with a lot of extremely important jobs to do (which is why we need to learn to love it more than we do). Here is how our unloved liver can cause acne:

1. The purification of potential toxic substances

One of the jobs of the liver is to purify toxic substances that enter the body. The body is then able to either use or excrete them. These toxins can come from many different things, such as the foods we eat, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, medications, cosmetics, or simply from the toxins in our homes and our surrounding environment.

An unloved liver may not be able to adequately purify all toxic substances that enter the body, so these excess toxins either end up stored in our fatty tissue or eliminated through one of the bodies seven elimination channels – one of these being the skin. When toxins come out via the skin they come out through our sweat and sebaceous glands as sebum. And while sebum production is a healthy way of the skin to moisturise and protect itself, when sebum is produced in excess then it can get clogged in the skin and cause whiteheads and blackheads – which is the beginning of acne inflammations.

Excess sebum production is also linked to a hormonal imbalance which we’ll look at in Balance Your Hormones and Stress Less, but without a loved up liver we’re unlikely to adequately balance our hormones long term. It is therefore important to do the liver work too.

If you have a lot of whiteheads and blackheads (comedonal acne) then you likely have an unloved liver that needs some love and attention.

2. The holding on of emotional toxins

Just like physical toxins, our liver can purify emotional toxins too. But if we suppress these emotions then our liver can become overloaded and stop being able to do such a good job at purifying them. This of course leads to an increase in stress levels (read Stress Less to learn the connection between acne and stress), and not enough room for our liver to be able to properly purify physical toxins. Which as we’ve already discussed can very easily leads to acne.

Our liver can store any emotion but typically it stores anger, irritability, frustration, resentment, jealousy and envy. So if you are feeling these emotions more than usual or are having trouble processing them, then giving your liver more love and attention is a good thing to do for your skin (and for your wellbeing too!).

When you clean your liver both physically and emotionally then you’ll find that you’ll be able to much easier and faster be able to process your anger. And this means you’ll be more stress free, enjoy life a lot more and of course have clearer skin.

How To Love Your Liver

Since we can store both physical and emotional toxins in our liver, then it’s essential to detox on both a physical and emotional level.

How you detox your liver will depend largely on your constitution and how much you resonate with energetic work. While liver flushes are highly effective they’re not a good “fit” for everyone, or even needed. Some will be able to handle a robust approach while others will need to be much more gentle. And the same goes for emotional cleansing of the liver – some approaches are certainly more intensive than others.

The first step I recommend to you if you are concerned about your liver, is to get a diagnosis from a good acupuncturist or Chinese Herbalist to see if you do in fact have a liver that is not functioning to its full capacity (and therefore if you have a blood issue that is causing it).

Love Your Liver, Cure Your Acne by Fran KerrHowever, if you want to just go for it and start cleansing your liver (hey, we can all benefit from a bit of liver cleansing), then the following love your liver guide will help you learn what method of liver detoxification is best for you plus how to actually do it.

Why you don’t want to jump into a liver flush without getting educated

Liver flushing is intense and without proper guidance you are potentially opening yourself up to complications. A great example is Tracy from the LoveVitamin.com who has a horrible experience with her first liver flush. It is very important to do the correct preparation and preliminary work before launching into a flush.

What does this mean? It means that you will need to cleanse your colon before and after a liver flush, and preferably your kidneys too. Without doing this preparatory work then you potentially could experience a much more difficult cleanse as your kidneys struggled to keep up, or stones could have trouble coming out and get stuck in your colon (which can cause their own problems too).

It is also important to keep flushing until no more stones come out. You will feel immediately more awesome after doing a flush but after a few days stones that are further back in the liver will move to the front to where the bile ducts are. You will likely then begin to experience symptoms again – which is why some people experience a clearing of their acne then after a week or so their acne returns. Once you have no more stones, then often no more acne too.

Please don’t let this prevent you from doing a liver flush – done properly flushing is safe, highly effective and comes with very little side effects. It is also likely a huge player in your chronic acne and can give you a complete cure so that you don’t have to worry about your acne coming back, or make you reliant on diets and supplements for the rest of your life.

The liver guide lists both gentle and basic liver work, up to how to do a complete flush. It also includes how you can cleanse your liver from energetic and emotional toxins.

Want to go full power?

The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder FlushI highly recommend that you get a hold of the Love Your Liver, Cure Your Acne guide here because it includes both gentle liver cleansing and energetic and emotional cleansing too. If however you feel that you want to skip all of that and launch yourself straight into a liver flush, then the best book I can recommend to you is The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush by Andreas Moritz. In fact this is an awesome book for everyone to have a copy of so I recommend it anyway. And if you get the kindle version then it’s much more affordable.

    Hi Fran,

    I recently started taking a liver and kidney detox tincture consisting of elm, juniper and rosemary, and my face has broken out the worst its ever been into severe acne! Its painful red bumps everywhere, even spots I normally don’t get acne and my hemp oil cleanse no longer even makes a dent. Is this a normal detox reaction? I’ve been taking it for 3 weeks now at the lowest dose. Or would I be better off trying the liver detox methods you’ve suggested in your guide?

    Hi Fran,

    I have a question about DIM. I tried DIM for two days to see if it would help my acne on my chin. The second day I took it, I had some crying spells and minor hot flashes while taking it. Is this a typical side effect? I’m 35, and have regular cycles, and have been off my period for 6 days. I stopped taking it, and immediately felt better the next day (no more crying for no reason!!!). In general is DIM supposed to be side-effect free?

    Reply
    • Fran June 28, 2015, 2:41 am

      Hi Kat, yes it can cause PMS type symptoms. DIM is usually great for hormonal acne but not recommended for women with low estrogen and high testosterone. If your hormones are in a state where you do need it, then you could next time try a much smaller dosage and support your liver through it at the same time.

      • Kat June 28, 2015, 5:54 pm

        Hi Fran, thank you for your response. I’m very interested in booking an appointment with you. I had my hormones tested in March and my estrogen was a little low, and so was the progesterone and my testosterone was very low, DHEA was normal. I had already been taking Vitex for about 3 months for my low progesterone. I started taking a small dose of DHEA for 2-3 weeks, which has caused an acne issue since, cystic and otherwise. Its very annoying, and I feel like my naturpathic doctor was unsympathetic to the acne issue. I love your website. It’s been very helpful.

        If I booked an appointment with you, would you suggest getting another hormone panel done (through saliva testing) since the last one I had was over three months ago? I’m finally ready to get to the root of this acne issue whether its my liver, hormones, emotions or all three!!!!!!!!!!!! It is time to deal with it, and move on!!! 🙂
        God bless you.

          No I wouldn’t suggest getting another hormonal panel, we can work with what was already tested. I look forward to working with you 🙂

    Hi Fran!
    Thank you so much for all these wonderful resources. They really make a lot of sense to me and since I’ve been cleansing with hemp oil my cystic pimples have drastically reduced. I am very close to booking a consultation with you but at the moment I’m having a hormone saliva test and mineral hair analysis done so that I can provide you with more information during the consultation.

    I have a question about liver cleansing: could I substitute apple cider vinegar for lemon in both the gentle cleanses and the flushes? And if so, in what quantity?

    I discovered a year ago that citrus fruits as well as tomatoes strongly trigger my dust allergies (they are high histamine containing/releasing foods) and ever since I’ve minimized my intake my allergies have been really great (I’ve noticed no effect on my acne though).

    Thanks for your advice

    I have been washing and exfoliating with hemp seed oil and an organic washcloth, as it says it “How To Heal From Acne Naturally For Adult Women”. I am also using fresh Aloe Vera leaf gel at night for an exfoliating mask, and both have helped so much!! I am wondering how to clean my face in the morning, before going to the gym to workout where I will sweat a lot, or a yoga class where I don’t want getting hemp oil on my yoga mat.

    Hi Fran, Thank you so much for your website. It has been very helpful. I’m making many decisions to try to clear my skin (37 years old/acne since puberty…boo) but at the same time I’m working on my digestive health. Because of this, I’m not sure that a liver cleanse at the same time will be wise. I’m confident that my acne has to do with hormonal imbalance, so I’m very interested in Estroblock. I’m wondering, though, if it will be wise to start on this without the liver cleanse first. I’m very interested in making an appointment to talk further but with many new health costs, it might need to wait a bit longer. I appreciate any thoughts you might have. Thanks again so much for sharing your journey. ~ Cheryl

    • Fran May 17, 2015, 11:19 pm

      Hi Cheryl, the first place to begin is always the digestive system, so once that is up to a good balance, then you can look into working on your liver (if needed). I can’t recommend EstroBlock to you completely until our consultation. But if you get a bottle and do the sway test, and it does indicate that it’s good for you, then it’s okay to begin before a liver cleanse.

      Unfortunately, yes, the MTHFR gene mutation can be the cause of chronic acne that is difficult to “cure”. I don’t know so much about the gene so I recommend working with a holistic doctor. I’m certain there is a way to manage the systems of the body to overcome all symptoms of the gene mutation, including acne.

      Hi Kate,

      It’s not usual to experience a breakout after a water enema – it may have been a coincidence. If it was related then it’s a good thing because it means toxins are being released from your body and coming out… yet as I said it’s unlikely from the enema.

      Hi Stacey, most naturopathic liver supplements will contain milk thistle. You can take the herbs individually, visit a Chinese herbalist to go down that path, or do daily liver support diet changes, like ginger tea, beet juice, morning tonics, etc.

    Hi Fran, Whats your thoughts of food sensitivities and acne? Obviously the majority of people cannot afford to get the testing done, and its hard to tell what foods could be affecting your skin, especially when they are deemed ‘healthy’. I am very thin anyway and dont want to get such a complex about food. If you balance the hormones and strengthen the liver and digestion can you completely eliminate acne regardless of it you are eating something that is healthy but your body may be sensitive to? there are so many variables!

    Thanks

    • Fran August 31, 2014, 2:00 pm

      Hi Lynsey,

      Honestly, I don’t feel that there is a direct connection between food sensitivities and the skin, unless it’s an obvious insensitivity – but you’d know about it because that food will cause a strong reaction like bloating, gas, headaches, skin rashes, etc.

      You can clear your skin eating whatever you want, BUT it depends on your unique case. If you have poor mineral absorption or a mineral deficiency for example, then you will struggle with getting your skin completely clear without addressing diet. Also high testosterone and insulin resistance are BEST addressed with diet. There are many examples like this. So the answer unfortunately is not so black and white. I recommend that you get some consultations done, get a full check up, and find out what is causing your acne then go from there.

    Hi Raymona,

    I can’t say if you have a hormonal imbalance without having a consultation with you. Acne in adult women is often related to a hormonal issue but usually that’s also combined with another internal imbalance. It can get a bit complicated which is why I need to advise fully after having a proper chat in a consultation 🙂

    Hi there! I stumbled across your site in my research on DIM which I just learned about. I’m sure I suffer from hormonal acne, but I’m not sure if DIM is right for me, can you help? I’ve suffered with moderate acne from a teenager to now at 32. If on birth control my skin is clear, but at 32 I don’t want to be on it. When pregnant my skin has less acne and even less so when breast feeding. As soon as I’ve stopped breast feeding my acne increases to moderate and my back in particular flares up significantly. Can you suggest what hormones might be wreaking havoc (and should have tested) and if you think DIM is a good solution? Thanks so much Fran!

      Hi Morgan, DIM is always a good base to start with – all of us need to detox out bad estrogens from time to time and it just may work with your skin.

      I recommend that you get tested for progesterone, testosterone, estrogen and cortisol.

    Hi Fran – how long do you suggest taking liver support supplements for at a time? Is it something that you recommend doing daily and indefinitely? Or just a few months until you feel all the bad oestrogen, toxins, etc. have been cleared? The supplement I’m looking at is Fusion Liver Tonic which is a combination of milk thistle & dandelion.. Thanks!

      Hi Lou, I don’t believe that taking any supplement, or even super or medicinal food, is good to take indefinitely. If you are taking these things long term then it is better to go for a break every few months or so.

      For liver herbs, take them while you are healing your skin. Once your skin has been clear for at least a month, then gradually wean off them. Liver support herbs are also great to take while doing a cleanse.

    Hi Fran,
    I brought your liver eBook and I am quite determined to do the liver flush but I am also very wary as I’ve read if its done wrong you can cause more harm than good to your kidneys and liver.
    I am a bit confused with the timeline of the whole kidney cleanse-detox morning drinks-flush.
    I have been drinking roasted dandelion tea for a few weeks now and have noticed that its used in most herbal combinations for a kidney cleanse.
    Would roasted dandelion be enough to cleanse my kidneys or should I look into a combination tea? And are there any I can buy online that you would suggest? Or even some specific herbs I should look for in these teas?
    And how often should I drink the tea? Once a day enough, or aim for more?

    With the liver detox morning drinks…can I begin taking these at the same time I am doing the kidney cleanse? Or should I do the 30 days of tea and then start the detox drinks?
    And for how long to I continue drinking them?

    With the enemas I plan on just doing the 3 water ones. Is the idea of the series of 3 water enemas to do them all in a row? Or space them out over a day?
    Does it matter at what point I do this, or just any time before the flush?

    I’ve decided to do the #1 cleanse as it is simple. Do I do the series of enemas in the morning after the cleanse?

    I then plan to do the flush every month until no more stones are passed.
    Just regarding this, will I have to begin the whole process over again (30 days on kidney cleanse tea, the morning cleansing drinks, the series of enemas etc). How would I go about doing a 2nd flush a month later, and then another the months after that if I need?

    Again, I am sorry that I have asked so many questions, and I am thankful and glad that you’re here to answer them. I find the amount of info on the internet to be very overwhelming, and as I have only just begun my journey of healing my mind and body, it’s so easy to feel lost in it all and some days I want to just give it all up because I just feel so in over my head. But your site really has been such a massive help.
    I sincerely thank you Fran. 🙂

      Hi Ash,

      If you haven’t had a bladder or kidney infection in the past then don’t worry about getting another tea. If you have then it would be good to get your hands on a tea that’s specifically for kidney cleansing. I don’t have any particular brands to recommend so follow your intuition and reviews on that, and ask. There should be instructions with the tea on how ofte to use it, or check in with the company that you bought it from. You can have the morning liver tonic drinks and the kidney cleanse tea at the same time, that’s fine.

      3 water enemas or 2 water and 1 coffee in a row is ideal. Done on the day of and then the day after the cleanse are best.

      Yes, space the flushing about by about a month between them.

      I hope this helps. If you want guidance book in a call and we can go through the details together. x

      Hi Tuuli, our bodies all react in very different ways, you may have a very strong constitution which is great, lucky you! Did you try the cleanse with epsom salts? If not I recommend that you use the epsom salts next time. If you did use the epsom salts, then give it some time. Sometimes nothing comes out in the first cleanse or two.

    Hi Fran, do you have any experience or recommendations about castor oil packs for liver cleansing? It’s a gentler method and I’m wondering if you can share anything about it’s effectiveness compared to a liver flush. Many thanks, Kelly

      Hi Kelly, I personally have not had any experience with castor oil pack for the liver but I do know a bit about them and they seem great. And yes, a much more gentle option than a flush! You could always combine the castor oil packs with some gentle liver strengthening herbs and a cup of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning. That would be a great gentle liver cleansing program.

    I have been on estroblock for 2 months. Started with 1 regul in the morning and 1 pro at nighy. Currently im taking 2 pro/per day. Should i take only 1 pro per day? I have some regular leftovers, if i take again one regular in the morning and pro at night and later only 1 pro per day. Can i break out because of it ? Thank you for answering!

        Hi Fran,
        Yesterday I did the liver cleanse the first one, (the olive oil and lemon) followed all the instructions… so i took at night, layed on my right side and kept on waking up all night nauseous and not on my right side anymore… In the morning could not have a bowel movement even though i was really nauseous, i took some diluted apple cider vinegar to help with the nausea than was finally able to eat something like at 12:30 pm and only at 1:00 pm was i able to have a bowel movement.
        So i don’t understand what went wrong and if doing the first cleanse even helped? Do you think it’s ok if I go ahead with the second cleanse right after this one since it don’t seem like it worked?
        Thank you so much for everything, really appreciate it 🙂

          Hi Yuliya, I’m sorry that you didn’t have an awesome experience.

          If you have not had a bowel movement then it’s better to do a water enema which you can easily do yourself at home. I would also advise you to use epsom salts in your second flush because they are a laxative as well.

          To help with the nausea, make sure that you do a kidney cleanse leading up to the flush, and make sure to only eat liver friendly foods for a week until the day of flushing. The nausea should lesson each time you do the flushing work too. And please do not worry about waking up in a different position, that is perfectly okay 🙂

    I read your book and the article of Tracy’s experience with the liver flushing. Firstly i was so excited to start today already with drinking the apple juice etc, because i have been taking liver suppliements for few months and drinking detox tea for couple of months also(but not in the last 2 weeks), so i thought im ready for flushing very soon. After reading Tracy’s article im not so…excited anymore. But i have some questions:
    # Is the Liver Flush 1 totally different “thing” from the Liver Flush 2, or is it as effective also? Is it recommended to do it before the Liver Flush 2? Can i do it in the middle of the work week or better in the weekends(when i have day-offs)?
    # I decided to not jump into the Liver Flush 2 immediately and do a good kidney and colon cleanse before the flush. Is it so important to follow the moon cycle? If u went through it, did u felt also bad side effects? Do u think, it was one of the keys to have an acne-free skin and remain clear? Thank You so much for your time and answers, I want to be sure of everything and have no bad side-effects, if it is possible.

      Hi Sandy, yes it is unfortunate that Tracy has instilled a lot of fear into intensive liver work! It doesn’t have to be a horrible experience.

      Liver Flush 1 is as effective. The epsom salts in the second flush help to open the bile ducts but not everyone actually needs that. The first flush is a little more gentle. It is better to do on a day off the next day just in case you have a rough nights sleep. Every body is different.

      It is better to follow the moon cycle, yes. I have done a different type of liver work through a jungle medicine that is only available here in Peru. It’s a lot shorter but A LOT more intense. Nausea is 100% guaranteed with the liver work I did.

      Having a clean liver is for sure one of the keys to healthy skin. However it is not everyone’s core issue.

    So i’ve had really bad acne all over and I did the estro balance from enzymatic and it cleared up my acne completely only during my period i’d get one or two, i took them for about 6 months and now im breaking out a lot again but still not as much. Is it possible that my body became resistant to them? And another question can i do estro block at the same time as the colon and liver cleanse? Thx so much.

      Hi Yuliya, Yes you can do the colon and liver cleanse and good idea. I actually see this usually when the liver still needs work, so stick with the estroblock (second time around it may take longer to “kick in”) and do the liver work… and then you’ll be able to have a longer cure x

        Thx so much for the reply 🙂 But I had a few more questions so I was reading the e-book, “love your liver cure your acne”, and I was wondering instead of doing the coffee enema or water enema, why if I just take pills to cleanse out my colon would that work too? and if yes than in your opinion what’s the best colon cleanse pills? When I do the liver cleanse I just follow the steps with no liver cleanse pills right? And do u think the estro block and the estro balance work the same just different name? Last question sorry, During the colon, kidney and liver cleanse it’s still okay to keep on taking the estro block or no? Sorry for so much questions. Thank u.

          Hi Yuliya, the idea is the clear the pathways of elimination so any way to do that is fine. I haven’t used colon cleanse pills before so I am not able to recommend any brands.

          And yes, just follow the steps for the liver cleanse.

          I do not know about the brand EstroBalance – there are many different brands of DIM. I choose to promote EstroBlock because I found it to the be the most effective and with the least side effects from the brands I tested.

          And yes, you can cleanse the liver and do the estrogen detox at the same time.

    Hi Fran,
    I’m just wondering if Liv-Tox is a good product to try?
    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Sarah, I haven’t personally used it so I can’t say. Look up reviews online if you’re curious. My favourite liver support herbs are Liver Rescue 4+ from Health Force – Health Force are one of my favourite supplement brands.

    Hi Fran

    So glad you wrote about liver flushing. Liver flushing drastically changed the state of my skin and i am so grateful for the confidence clear skin has given me. It’s not something to be frightened about, but I strongly agree that newbies to this thoroughly read up about flushing before proceeding. Andeas Moritz is an absolute genius. Good luck beautiful people !! Xoxo

      Hi Fran,
      I finally bought the Estro Block but its the triple strength in the back it says it has 618mg of property Dim complex per serving 2 capsules, so if it’s triple strength do u think i should just take that amount one serving amount or more for it to help? During the liver cleanse can i keep on doing the coffee enema’s? Thank you 🙂

      • Fran January 5, 2014, 10:35 pm

        Hi Yuliya, I only sell and recommend regular strength estroblock because triple strength can be too much, especially for first time users.
