Sandra Cabot Health The Liver Cleansing Diet
Dr Cabot’s Liver Cleansing Diet Book has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into seven other languages.
It could be said that this book has crossed cultural and language boundaries. It won the Australian people’s Choice Award in 1997 and just keeps on keeping on. It still manages to sell as steadily as modern day lifestyles make new fatty livers, and it always will.
Think about it – everyone has a liver and the incidence of liver diseases and liver dysfunction keeps on increasing.
Dr Sandra Cabot has made us aware of the importance of the liver in our general health and our longevity – indeed she often says “love your liver and live longer!”
So if the original Liver Cleansing Diet was such a breakthrough in nutritional medicine, what make this updated and revised edition so much better?
It contains effective and achievable nutritional strategies for overweight children.
The Liver Cleansing Diet is not a quick fix DETOX DIET. Indeed severe calorie restricted detox programs have been recently shown to be potentially dangerous for many people. Even in young healthy people these extreme detox diets can lead to fluid loss, muscle loss and electrolyte disturbances. Protein restriction leads to muscle loss with muscle turning into fat – this is not what most detox hopefuls expect or desire. Furthermore, extreme detox diets have been shown to increase liver enzymes and deteriorate liver function.
In contrast, Dr Cabot’s Liver Cleansing Diet and her Livercare program comprise a 2 to 8 week plan based on balanced natural foods and super detox foods. These support healthy liver function where no nutrient deficiencies, liver inflammation or muscle loss will occur.
