Calms Immune System & Spring Allergies
When your liver is too overwhelmed to process toxins, the immune system kicks in as a backup. If you have an auto-immune disorder, or are prone to allergies, toxins only make things worse for your body.
Heat aggravates the immune system because it also stresses out the liver. The immune system is inherently hot, being warlike in nature. An example of the immune system's relationship to heat is a fever.
Cabbage, cilantro, and aloe vera are strongly cooling. Aloe and cilantro cleanse the liver. Cilantro is an anti-histamine, meaning it directly calms the immune system. Bitter taste cleanses and refreshes the liver, improving its performance. Bitter taste also helps decongest the blood for improved lymphatic drainage.
preparation1. Juice cabbage and cilantro in a vegetable juicer. If you don't have a juicer, chop cabbage and cilantro, then puree in a blender with 1c water. Strain the water into a glass.
2. Add aloe vera to vegetable juice. Add 1/2 water if necessary. Stir.
