Have A Doubt About Liver Cleansing? Read THIS!
The human liver is a vital organ and an amazing one. It is a large meaty looking organ on the right side of the stomach. It weighs about three pounds. The liver has many functions, but primarily it filters the blood making its way through the digestive system. Along the way, it also metabolizes and detoxifies.
Without a functioning liver, we cannot live, yet we continuously take part in practices that harm or even destroy the liver:
• Excessive drinking of alcohol
• Medications- both prescribed and OTC
• Eating too many fatty and sugary foods
• High-stress lifestyles
Severe liver conditions:
• Liver cancer
• Cirrhosis of the liver
• Liver failure
All of these conditions are life threatening if not treated, even gallstones which can lead to hepatitis and other conditions.
Just because you have not been diagnosed with cancer or hepatitis doesn’t mean your liver couldn’t use some TLC. Your liver impacts other systems and organs of your body.
Signs your liver is malfunctioning:
• Skin problems- jaundice, rashes, and irritations, acne
• Swollen stomach
• Weight gain- difficulty losing unwanted pounds
• Weakened immune system-tendency toward allergies and illness
• Discolored stools
If you are doing anything that may damage your liver, chances are you have gallstones. Again, gallstones can lead to more dangerous conditions. It is recommended to do a liver flush to rid the body of gallstones. It sometimes takes 8-12 months to remove all the gallstones, but you should wait at least a month between each flush.

Recipe for liver flush:
Six days before actual liver flush:
• Eat lightly – nothing fried, packaged or processed- also, avoid fatty foods
• Eat at regular times and nothing late at night
• Drink plenty of water
• Avoid unnecessary supplements or medication
• Get plenty of sleep and rest
• Plan the actual flush on a day where you can stay home and rest the following day
• Plan to do a colon cleanse before and after the liver cleanse
What you will need:
• Apple juice-6 32 ounce containers or 6 tsp of food grade malic acid dissolved in 6 liters of pure water- you will drink one bottle of juice or one liter of pure water with the malic acid each of the six days before the flush
• Food grade Epsom salts- 4 tablespoons dissolved in 710 ml of pure water, divided into four portions
• Extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil- 4 ounces
• Fresh grapefruits or lemons- 6 ounces
• Enema Kit with stainless steel bucket
1. On the sixth day make sure you are eating very lightly. Do not eat nuts, dairy, meat or avocado.
2. Eat a light lunch no later than 1:30
3. 6: -Add four tablespoons of Epsom salts to three 8 oz. glasses of filtered water. These ingredients will make four portions ¾ of glass each. Drink your first portion and flavor with lemon.
4. 8:00 PM – Drink your second portion
5. 9:30- If you have not yet had a bowel movement use a water enema unless it has been less than 24 hours since you did a colon cleanse.
6. Wash, squeeze and remove the pulp from the lemon or grapefruit. Add ½ glass of olive oil and shake the mixture thoroughly until it is watery.
7. Drink the mixture as close to 10 PM as possible, if you are still having bowel movements you may need to delay this for a few minutes.- Stand up by your bed while you drink this.
8. Lie down immediately after drinking. Lying down will enable you to release the gallstones.
9. 6:00 AM the next day- drink your third portion of the Epsom salt concoction- try to stay up and perhaps do some yoga if you’re up to it.
10. 8:30 AM- drink the last portion of the Epsom salts
11. 10:30- Have some juice or fruit
You can expect to have watery bowel movements throughout the day initially mixed with food and finally just water and gallstones. You should be back to normal within two days with an improved liver. The liver can regenerate up to 75% in as little as 3-4 weeks. Caring for your liver can have a profound impact on your health.
