Weight Loss Question

Are liver cleanses safe? My partner and I are at a detox spa In Thailand. A part of a week long fasting programme, they have a day where you drink Epsom salts to cleanse the liver. They have a very strict schedule to ensure you don’t get dyhrated. What are the pros and cons of doing this?
Thank you!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It has got not much scientific evidence. You can take garlic tea to clean and enhance detoxification process of liver.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
