Liver or Colon Cleanse?

I recently got a massage and was told that I am holding a lot of anger in my liver and should do both a Liver and a Colon Cleanse to release the emotions. I’ve never done a cleanse. Could someone with some experience/knowledge of the cleanses please offer some insight i.e. which cleanse I should do first? recommended brand names of cleanses?

    Unfortunately when you want a good massage you sometimes have to endure new agey woo woo nonsense.

    Anger is an emotion and that’s not a function of your liver. Furthermore, you CAN’T cleanse your liver and colon cleansing only flushes out faeces – it offers NO health benefits.

    Enjoy the massage but ignore the childish health advice!

  • I would recommend never going back to that quack. The liver filters chemicals, not emotions. It is the brain which filters your emotions. All a cleanse will do is give you horrible diarrhea for 2 days. It will put you at high risk for dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and malnutrition. The euphoria most people feel after a cleanse is actually the brain’s dopamine receptors working overtime to compensate for the horrible stress the diarrhea is putting your body under. If you want to feel more healthy and "pure", just take time each day to do something that makes you happy and make sure you eat as balanced as you can (without getting down on yourself if you eat some junk). See source for some science on how the liver works…

    "anger in my liver" that certainly sounds like a medical diagnosis to me. It could have been worse though, "anger in the spleen" is much harder to control.

    I would suggest dumping this quack who obviously knows nothing and is trying to peddle you scam treatment.

    I would suggest a course of Quantum Elbowology to realign your chakras and allow the negative energy to flow out through the energy paths to earth.
