Liver & Gall Bladder Flush
This is a quick and easy way to flush out toxins from an overburdened liver and
gall bladder. This cleanse has been done in many different ways with many
different products but we’ve chosen a simple one that will suit everyone at
every toxicity level.
Gallstones are formed when there is a deficiency of organic sodium in the body.
Sodium deficiency is usually caused because of a high protein diet, eating too
many acid-forming foods, great emotional stress, or a combination of these
conditions. Eating high acidic foods, such as proteins in meat, dairy, and grains,
causes large amounts of acids to enter our bodies, medically speaking, sodium
is used up by the body through the sodium bicarbonate buffer system in the
process of neutralizing these acids. Organic sodium comes from the plant
kingdom and is free sodium, unattached to a chloride.
This program takes 7 days. You can start whenever it is convenient for you.
Many people start on a Monday and end on Sunday, since the hardest part of
the cleanse is the last part. Starting on a Monday allows you to keep a
moderate work schedule through the week, and focus more on the flush over
It is important to coordinate your cleanse with your colon hydrotherapist as it is
imperative to have a colonic the day after the flush and highly suggested to
have a colonic the day before or day of the flush.
Monday through Saturday lunch: Drink apple cider or apple juice. Drink as
much as you comfortably can, realizing that the more you drink, the soft er the
stones will become. Either get the juice freshly made or best of all, buy a box of
organically grown apples from your friendly health food store and juice them up
yourself. If you can’t do that then purchase organically grown apple juice and
use that. Just make certain there are no additives.
During this week: eat no meat and stay away from dairy and wheat products.
Have no sugar and if possible, stay away from coffee.
Saturday lunch: Eat a good average vegetarian meal, although it is better and
more effective to just drink fresh fruit or vegetable juice.
** It is important to make sure your bowels are moving by the afternoon time
either using an enema or even better, receiving a colonic.

Saturday dinner: Drink freshly squeezed orange juice, lemon juice, or some other
citrus juice. That’s dinner.
Just before bed: mix 4 ounces (or more, up to 8 ounces, if you want a stronger
flush) of warm, unrefined extra-virgin olive oil with a corresponding 4-8 ounces of
fresh organic lemon juice at room temperature. Squeeze the juice yourself and
mix the two well in a blender. If you don’t have a blender, shake the mixture
well in a quart jar. Then drink it! Just hold your nose and gulp it down as fast as
you can. When you’re done, take a deep breath, and think how good you are
going to feel when you’re done.
Sometimes people will feel slight to moderate nausea from this unusual
combination. If you couldn’t keep your mind off the taste and now feel a little
weird in the stomach, don’t let it bother you. It will soon pass. Bring your
attention back to how good you’ll feel when you’re all done.
After drinking the mixture, go directly to bed. Lie on your right side with your
knees pulled up close to your chest. Try to go to sleep this way. If you can’t
sleep in this position, then at least remain in this position for 30 minutes to an
hour- the longer the better.
The next morning start your day with fresh fruit, fruit juice, or vegetable juice.
Have a colonic scheduled for that day to relieve yourself of any bile sludge or
stones that may not have made it out of your intestinal tract. It is best not to eat
anything (other than fruit or fresh juice) until after you have a colon
hydrotherapy treatment. Refrain from eating anything heav y for the rest of the
day so as to give your digestive system a rest.
We suggest these flushes be utilized during times of acute liver congestion or
detoxification, chronic liver congestion, and as a preventative cleanse during
the spring and/or fall of the year.
