You probably haven’t done any lasting damage to your liver, but i wouldn’t make a habit of it. I don’t think there’s any evidence behind juice cleanses, but switching to a healthier diet will likely help you feel better.

I really wouldn’t worry about it. You have not built up a tolerance to liquor considering you specified you had not been a heavy previous drinker. Damage to your liver is a long process marked by years and years of drinking. It often comes with a yellowish pigment of the skin (jaundice) and some other skin problems. Your body is a tough shelter and your organs can take a beating every now and then but liver damage comes from years upon years of wear and tear. Any patient I have that has liver damage is well into their late 40s-50s with a lot of drinking history.

cleanses are not good for you. Your body does not need to be cleansed, nor is there any evidence that they improve health. There is evidence to suggest that they are harmful. But people are looking for a quick fix and easy weight loss, so they continue to grow in popularity.

Eat a healthy, well balanced diet, and drink lots of water.

Your liver should be fine. Lots of water or G2 (regular gatorade has too much sugar) and healthy foods. Juice cleanses are silly. Eat the whole fruit/veggie so you get the good fiber!
