I realize this question may be out of the Paleo realm.
I've been seeing an acupuncturist for a few weeks who determined I've got "Liver Qi Stagnation". This is not the only acupuncturist to diagnose me with this and "Plum Pit Chi". My trainer, who is Poliquin trained, feels my liver is blocked to hell as well.
Question..What are the best detox methods for the liver that won't have harsh effects? How long does it typically take to detox?
At this point I honestly feel that my liver is blocking my weight loss efforts. With a clean diet(yes little to no nut butter, oils, fruit), Heavy weight lifting, CF, sprints and lots of walking....things should be happening by now. It's been 3 months.

It is going to be hard for us to confirm/deny the diagnosis of a traditional Chinese medical practitioner. If it was me, I'd go to a western doctor and have my liver enzymes and function checked out (to confirm the qi/chi diagnosis).
Additionally, why not ask the practitioners who gave your the diagnosis what actions they recommend you take?
