When we detoxify and purify the blood we remove toxins, fungus, bacteria, and viruses from the bloodstream and this supports healthy living. We accomplish this by cleaning and strengthening the liver to help it efficiently screen the blood and remove fungus, bacteria, viruses, and toxins.

Cleaning the kidneys also helps it to efficiently remove waste from the body. Herbs and super-foods are used to clean and strengthen the liver and kidneys so they can purify the body the body more efficiently.

Herbs And Foods That Purify Blood

The herbs listed below have been used in herbal remedies for centuries to purify blood naturally. Though they are natural they should be respected and taken in the prescribed amounts. You should consult with a health care provider if you are concerned how the herbs will interact with your body. Many herbs should not be taken during pregnancy and if you are pregnant or nursing you should consult with your health care provider before taking herbs to purify blood.

Burdock Root

Burdock root’s compounds strengthen the liver, and is a diuretic that forces urination to help the kidneys remove toxins from the body.

    How many days do I use these to thoroughly cleanse my blood etc? How many bottles of each product should I buy?

    Are there any supps I should avoid while doing this cleanse?

    • Aqiyl says:

      I used the uncommon herbs like dandelion, burdock, sarsaparilla daily as part of my 3 month deep herbal cleanse. After that time I stopped taking them daily. Foods like ginger, cilantro, and goji berry can be used as a daily part of the diet.

    Hi. I am wanting to do this liver cleanse as well as the kidney cleanse. Is it safe to do while breastfeeding? Thank you so much

    • Aqiyl says:

      Wait until you are done breastfeeding. Eat a lot of whole-food plant based based foods and drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.

    Do you use a certain vitamin or capsule herbs? I have been reading that some of the herbs and vitamins that are in a capsuled is not the purest in form. What you think about that? Meaning- before the herbs was dried they were already been laced with pesticides. Have you ever think about growing your own herbs?

    Thank you

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Nikeya,

      It is always best to grow your own herbs, but it is better to take herbs in capsules than not take them at all. You will not get the full potency of growing the herbs yourselves, but if you don’t take any herbs at all you will not get any of the benefits. Presently I don’t have access to land to grow my own herbs and my 1st attempt to grow herbs inside did not go as well as I wanted so I use herbs in capsules until I find a better way.

  • Tosh says:

    In reference to the blood detox, what is the best way to use the suggested herbs? In a pill form or by blending herbs together in a smoothie? Also how often should you use them? Daily for a week or certain time frames? Thanks
