Horrible breakout with liver detox!

18 posts in this topic

For the last few days I've been breaking out horribly everwhere on my face, even in areas where I hadn't had a spot in years, such as my forehead. The only thing I can connect this breakout to is the liver detox supplements I started taking a few days ago which include milk thistle, turmeric, dandelion etc... I also got bad headaches and generally felt sick all week (but this could be due to having my period, too, this week...). The supplement I'm taking is called Livercare.

I read somewhere these reactions are actually a good thing since more toxins are released into the bloodstream, hence the breakout. Is this reallly true? Can you get bad breakouts with a detox plan? I trully hope this is the case and that I'm getting rid of all the waste in my system!

What has your diet been like while on this cleanse?


"Factors that are known to cause variation in the levels of growth hormone (GH) and IGF-1 in the circulation include an individual's genetic make-up, the time of day, his or her age, gender, exercise status, stress levels, nutrition level and body mass index (BMI), disease state, race, estrogen status and xenobiotic intake."

IGF-1 --> androgens --> sebum --> acne.

if you are full of toxins and the elimination does not go fast enough because the channels are blocked this is what happens

Breakouts are quite common during a detox. Yes, I am afraid this means that it is working. :cool:


I have but one goal, to witness the demise of this entity which plagues us all.

Join me in my quest, if you will. Light will shine once again on this

barren wasteland. For where there is hope... there is victory.

Actually, the same thing happened to me. I did a liver flush last Sunday, and I had the worst breakout I've ever had, EVER. My poor face is still recovering.

Can anyone tell me if this happens every time while flushing? I want to do another one, but not if it's going to make me look like an ogre... Does the severity of liver flush breakouts seem to decrease with each succeeding flush?

It's possible to breakout after a liver flush as your body adjusts, but from other people experiences, they have had mild breakouts nothing like "the worst breakout...ever". I feel for you and want to try to help. What exactly did you do before, during and after your liver flush?

that means that your body cannot get rid of the toxins, because the pathways are packed with them already. If you do not find other ways to support the detox and help your body to get rid of the toxins by clearing the pathways your body is simply going to absorb the toxins again. based on your body's reaction you need a more wholistic approach. just poppin the pill won't work for you

"Pathways" huh? Sounds very scientific.

Yeah, you better keep taking it so you can clear your "pathways" of those nasty toxins, which will some how result in clear skin, even though I don't know how, and neither does anyone else.

I dont know if youre still checking this, but youve gotta let us know what else youre doing. Its more than just taking a pill, you should be eating well to favor good digestion while on the diet, avoiding bad foods almost completely, and your hydration/water intake is also likely important. (Im not sure if this is your skin expelling toxins or not, but its preferrable to keep those inside you whether on a detox or not).

quite the opposite. you will not have any benefits if the toxins are released through the stuff you are taking and then subsequently absorbed again by the body because the pathways are not clear and your body does not have what is needed to bind these vast amounts of toxins and remove them (minerals).


My skin is clear. Antibiotics, BP, Differin, and Yaz. Now down to just Differin and Yaz. Soon going to wean off Yaz. Took over 3 months to see much improvement. Less than 6 months since I started and my skin is 100% clear now.

What are these "toxins" that are blamed for everything ?

Has someone proved there are these toxins that your body can't get rid of ?

Cancer, diabetes, auto immune diseases and allergies are an example.

Too much exposure to asbestos could lead to mesothelioma

Heavy drinking could lead to liver cancer

Heavy smoking (direct or indirect) could lead to lung cancer

-By "pathways", he means all the routes that toxins take to be removed from the body. The liver/bile and colon/poo, the kidneys/urine, lungs/breath, sinuses/mucous and *drumroll please* the skin/sweat/oils. Constipation, poor digestion, kidney/bladder problems, asthma or polluted air, allergies and stuffy nose, sluggish skin sloughing/not sweating could all be described as blocking these detox pathways.

Also by "pathways" one could be talking about Phase I or Phase II. Phase I includes enzymes acting on the toxic compound to metabolize it into a different substance, usually less harmful. In Phase II extra groups are bonded to the basic molecule, making it less harmful and more soluble

so it can be excreted from the body. Both of these phases require many vitamins, minerals and enzymes to be carried out efficiently. For example magnesium plays a large part in Phase I by acting on it's own and by activating many other enzymes. If it or any other nutrient etc was missing from the process you could say the pathway is being blocked.

-"Toxins" are anything damaging and/or unnatural to the body (see xenobiotics). These include byproducts of our own natural metabolism (lactic acid, urea, ammonia etc). Also, around 4,000,000 man-made chemicals have been described in scientific literature since 1965. Something like 6,000 new chemicals are added to the list every week and at least 70,000 are currently in production. Only a fraction of this toxic load has been adequately tested for the long term effects on human health.

-It is a fact that we get these into our body, and that most that actually get studied are shown to be harmful in large amounts. If they create obvious illness in large doses, it seems reasonable to say that even small amounts are not good for us- and when we get a little bit each of thousands through the air we breathe, food we eat, water we drink and wash in etc essentially creating having a toxic cocktail. It stands to reason that they need to be taken out of the body before they build up and kill us.....they are toxic so we call them toxins.

-Yes, detoxing your body can and should create symptoms on the skin. The skin is the best place to detoxify from and preferred by the body when other organs are overloaded or sick because it spares them the extra work. Helping any other eliminative pathways can help clear the skin to some degree.
