Raw potato juice is the best choice for recover and restore the liver after cleanse. It's very effective, and makes you feel very much energized and rejuvenated. I usually start taking fresh raw organic potato juice 1 week after a liver flush, and during that 7 days, do as much of enema as possible(salt oral enema, coffee enema, herbal enema etc), sometimes up to 3 times per day (I usually fast that week). The taste is not bad at all, if you dislike it, you can dilute it with distilled water.
Other than raw potato juice, the second best is carrot juice! :o)
Hope you guys will try it and enjoy it much as I do :o)
and it is very prone to creating an environment
suitable for fungus.
it is a sugary root vegetable.
chinese medicine as well as indian
does not see the potato in good light
neither does macrobiotic or raw foodists.

Thank you for your comment, true and you have identified the nature of potato right, however, that is not all the properties of potatoes. Yes, one must take it according to his/her body types. And personally I found it very helpful to revitalize my body after long fast and cleansing, my uncle is a registered dietitian and been practicing chinese herbalism for many years, he recommanded me to intake modest amount of raw potato juice after fasting, and I am very happy with the result.
From the book "Healing with Whole Foods - Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition", by Paul Pitchford,,, here is what it says about Potato. So let you guys be the judge.
"Potato - neutral thermal nature, sweet flavor; mildly diuretic, tonifies the spleen-pancreas and the qi energy; harmonizes the stomach; lubricates the intestines; fortifies the yin aspect of the kidneys; contains an abundance of carbohydrates that are already in the form of sugars. This sweet flavor can favorably influence the spleen-pancreas, particularly in those individuals who do not chew other carbohydrates well enough to obtain a satisfying amount of sugars. Potato neutralizes body acids, which helps relieve arthritis and rheumatism; and its rich potassium content is good for those who have used too much salt and high sodium food, including meat.
The potato reduces all inflammations. Its jice is applied externally to heal burns, and is drunk to lower blood pressure and to treat stomach and duodenal ulcers. For ulcers, follow the same dosage as given above for cabbage juice. Potato can be juiced most easily in a juicer; juice can also be squeezed from granted potato by twisting it in cloth. The fresh juice is considered to have antibiotic properties. It also helps establish beneficial intestinal flora and is a rich source of vitamin C, enzymes and minerals.
In nineteenth and early twentieth-century America, a poultice of grated raw potato was a common remedy for drawing out external abscesses, carbuncles and eczema and for relieving swelling and soreness of the eyes. Today this kind of poultice still finds use as a Bolivian folk remedy for headaches.
Potato is considered one of the most completely nourishing foods if eaten with its skin. As an experiment to test the nutritional value of potatoes, two Danish food scientists lived healthfully for three years during World War II on whole potatoes only.
Because potato increases the yin aspect of the body, it improves one's receptive, nuturing, and compassionate nature. Yin also includes the body's structure, and so potatoes can be used to help build and maintain body tissues. In addition to the expansive effect of the nightshades noted above, the potato's yin, earthy nature is frequently craved by those with "jet lag" and other stresses of the high-tech world.
cautions: green potatoes abd sprouts that grow on potatoes are toxic - be sure to remove the eyes of the sprout imbedded in the potato. The renowned Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner observed that eating too many potatoes can cause laziness. This is reasonable clamin since an excess of potatoes can excess of the yin, receptive principle in the body (receptivity taken to the extreme can cause laziness)"
Since I had also mentioned about carrot juice, so the following is the properties of carrot,,, it's from the same book (my food dictionary, 753 pages!!! super informative, I highly recommand it to everyone) "Healing with Whole Foods - Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition" by Paul Pitchford (Third Edition)
Neutral thermal nature; sweet flavor, benefits the lungs; strengthens the spleen-pancreas; improve liver functions; stimulates the elimination of wastes; diuretic; dissolves accumulations such as stones and tumors; treats indigestion including excess stomach acid and heartburn; eliminates putrefactive bacteria in the intestines that cause poor assimilation; use for diarrhea and chronic dysentery; contains an essential oil that destorys pinworms and roundworms. (sounds fairly promising so far LOL)
Carrots are alkaline-forming and clear acidic blood conditions including acne, tonsillitis, and rheumatism; they are also one of the richest sources of the anti-oxidant beta carotene (provitamin A), which protects against cancer (carrots are a traditional Western folk remedy for cancer) as well as treats night blindness, ear infections, earaches, and deafness. Beta-carotene/ vitamin A benefits the skin and is anti-inflammatory for the mucous membranes. Therefore carrots are useful for lesions and lung, digestive tract, and urinary tract infections. They ease whooping cough and coughs in general. The juice heals burns when applied directly. Carrots increase the milk supply of nursing mothers and help regulate all hormones. They help ripen measles and chichen pox. They also contain large amounts of silicon and thereby strengthen the connective tissues and aid calcium metabolism. Their silicaceous fiber and ability to liquefy the bile make them useful in treating constipation.
For the above conditions, eat at least 6 ounces of carrots a day or drink a cup or two of the juice. Eating carrot sticks daily helps strengthen children's teeth, and in some cases, reduces overcrowding of the teeth by encouraging the development of the lower jaw. Grated carrots are best for parasites and dysentery and have been used as a poultice over cancerous growths to reduce inflammation and odor. Carrots are cooked in cases of diarrhea; when cooked and pureed or as a soup, they benefit infants with weak digestion. For a concentration of vitamin A and other nutrients, juice is ideal - it should be taken only on an empty stomach and should be diluted with water for infants. Carrots make a good foundation juice for adding other juices.
Caution: Carrot juice is very sweet, and regular overcomsumption may lead to weakened kidneys with symptoms such as head hair loss. More than 4 cups daily is not recommanded.
Carrot tops are bitter. They serve as a mineral-rich addition to soups and broths. The stems can be removed before serving. Adding a little of the tops when juicing carrots makes the juice less sweet and a better remedy for cancer prevention, liver stagnation, and "damp" conditions."
