Cleansing the liver

It is very important the we take good care of our liver and one way is to cleanse it regularly. There is a traditional way of cleansing which is so simple, and the TCM doctor who shared this to us would like us to share this procedure to others:

1. Get a ginger about 3 to 4 inches long.
2. Slice the ginger to about half inch per slice WITHOUT PEELING.
3. Boil the slices of ginger to 2 liters of water for 5 minutes.
4. While boiling the ginger, drink one liter of tea or water.
5. Take out the ginger, slice to smaller pieces and minch.
6. Pour the boiled water and minched ginger to a basin.
7. Test if your feet can withstand the heat when soaked.
8. If your feet can withstand the heat, soak until the water's heat is gone.

The pungent essence of the ginger will cleanse the liver from its acupoints on the foot. You should feel the heat going up your body.
