Estrogen is effectively removed by a well-functioning liver. In the first stage, the liver turns harmful estrogen intro milder, weaker forms of estrogen, and in the second stage, it converts it into a water-soluble form, so you can eliminate it through the stool or urine.

Yet, the liver won’t be able to fulfill its function if the body lacks important nutrients, or it is overburdened with other chemicals, accumulated due to the use of processed foods, drugs, and alcohol.

To support the function of the liver, you should:

Drink lots of filtrated water

Do not drink alcohol

Each a real, whole-foods based diet

Avoid overeating

Eat foods that support liver health, such as kale, dandelion greens, beets, garlic, eggs, dark leafy greens, artichoke, onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc.)

Supplement with botanicals that improve the function of the liver, like rosemary, burdock, red clover, barberry, milk thistle, dandelion root, Oregon grape root, gentian, licorice, ginger, wild yam.
