The liver is the largest organ in the body after the skin and we only have one. It is located under the diaphragm and crosses the abdominal cavity longitudinally, its function is: detoxification, synthesis and storage. It functions as a large treatment plant, recycling plant and compound reuse. Its proper functioning is essential for life, so the less you work the better.

Way of making the infusion:
We mix the six plants in a large, clean and dry container. With dry hands we remove them well. As it will be left over, we make two halves with the mixture. Part of the mixture is stored in a large jar to use daily, and another is kept tightly closed in a cool, dry place for later.
In a saucepan we put a liter of water to boil, and at the boiling point we remove it from the heat and add two well heaped tablespoons. We cover until it cools down because it has volatile properties and they would be lost.
When it is cold we filter it with a strainer and put it in a glass bottle. The dose we have to take is four cups a day from Monday to Friday per person, sweetened with honey or brown sugar.
We break from the healthy habit on the weekend but control the diet. In this way its properties will be absorbed, assimilated and eliminated. To start over the following Monday.
Accompany with all the exercise that we can do, at least one hour walking dynamically, if it can be accompanied better to give support.
