You can't "detox" your liver, that's what your liver already does. You might consider seeing a doctor for your ongoing headaches.

You may be eating more fat than your body can deal with right now. Cut back on the added oils a bit and reintroduce them more gently. Too much fat too fast can cause nausea and diarrhea. Headaches are often due to electrolyte depletion from... (more)

I agree with the Whole 30. Also, it might be a good idea to keep a food diary for a week or two, to see if you can figure out what causes your symptoms.

Do you do dairy? If so perhaps you can get some cream from your local farm. I find Bone marrow really tasty and it's basically pure fat just about. Hope that helps, best of luck!

I've found that the best way to alleviate dehydration headaches is by drinking pure water (no salt or electrolytes added) and eating some potassium-rich foods. Potassium balances out sodium in the body.
