You can't: Anybody telling you otherwise is either badly misinformed or trying to scam you. There are "liver purges" you can drink that can end you in the icu. We do live in a sea of unpleasant chemicals -- natural and human-made -- and the best you can do by your liver is to eat a healthy diet and stay physically (especially aerobically) fit.
