If you are considering a DIY health remedy, be sure to check out this cautionary tale of a man attempting a liver flush.
The Doctors discuss the case of a man trying to dissolve his gallstones by drinking 3 tablespoons of Epsom salt with water for 15 days. In this case, the man got jaundice and permanent liver damage.
The Doctors urge us to not believe posts on social media about liver cleanses and flushes, and say they found numerous misleading flush and cleanse claims online.
They remind everyone that the best things to do for your liver to keep it working properly involve eating right and avoid excessively liver-toxic things like alcohol and certain types of medication.
They also note that if you have a true liver infection that a flush will not cure the problem and say medications are key.
