Please, if you are in pain now do not
do a flush at this time. See your doctor, take the beet recipe and one of the
product kits that help to thin the bile and take the pressure off the gallbladder. Otherwise it's like beating
a sick horse. Treat it gently. When you are "out of the woods" and the gallbladder is functioning better,
proceed if you choose to. It
is best to have a medical diagnosis before attempting to do a flush.
If you read the pathology on the gallbladder disease page first you will be alerted to some of the dangers to beware
of. You may have a simple case, but you may have a complicated, life-threatening one.
What Does The Liver/Gallbladder Flush
- Helps cleanse stagnant waste from the liver/gallbladder
- Helps improve liver functioning and bile flow
- Helps purify the blood and lymph
- Helps rejuvenate the body
Kicking Out Old Problems with Liver/Gallbladder
Some people have reservations about doing a liver flush.
Some of the reason for that is that they do it with a full bowel. If you dump a half of a cup of oil into the stomach
and it is followed by the secretion of bile, it's natural course would be to drop out through the bowel and rather
quickly. If it is stopped up, you are going to experience nausea and/or vomiting. If the bowel has been cleared
with a colonic or Epsom salts in advance, tht is highly unlikely to happen. However, if it still makes you nervous
you can work on dissolving stones with the starter kit and gallstone kit without it. Coffee enemas are also helpful
and easier on most than the flush.
What might improve from a Liver/Gallbladder
Apart from helping with the pain and discomfort of a poorly
functioning digestive system, all of the symptoms mentioned above may also be helped by a series of flushes. They
1. Digestive problems (such as burping often, bloating, intestinal gas, stomach pain)
2. Food allergies and sensitivities
3. Chemical sensitivities (such as reactions to gasoline, cleaning agents, soaps, cosmetics, etc.)
4. Rashes, various kinds of skin problems
5. Eye problems (such as blurred vision, eye pain, decreasing eyesight, eye flutters or twitches, etc.)
6. Difficulty sleeping
7. Irritability, frequent anger, depression
8. Tendon or muscle problems (such as frequent sprains/strains, muscle injuries, delayed healing)
9. Swelling of the breasts
10. Menstrual problems (such as too little or too much blood flow, blood clotting, cramps)
11. Headaches (especially pain at the vertex of the head, and throbbing headaches). A headache of the gallbladder
is most commonly over the right eye, at the temples or on one side of the head.)
GALLBLADDER AND LIVER FLUSH
FOR GALLSTONES AND SLUDGE IN THE GALLBLADDER,
LIVER AND BILIARY TRACT
The Liver and Gallbladder Flush can be used by those who have had gallbladder removal as well as by those who have
not. This is because there are often gallstones in the liver and in fact, most likely are if you've had them in
the gallbladder. The problem with bile has its root in the formation in the liver. A flush helps to alleviate congestion
due to gallstones and/or thickened bile A person can have gallstones after gallbladder removal because this underlying
problem of bile stagnation has not been addressed. Congestion can be a problem in the gallbladder and in the liver
itself as well as in the bile ducts.
Many people have done this flush successfully. Some do it
2 or 3 times a year just to keep the bile moving. I had a note from a lady who said she had gallbladder problems
25 years ago and did the flush at that time and is only experiencing trouble again now. If you have tried this
flush and would like to send your comments I am sure other people would appreciate hearing them. I am providing
the information because I have been asked for it. The products I am selling on this site combined with the recommended
diet of "real food" can be very effective and less dramatic. Personally I have done both coffee enemas
and flushes and have had no trouble with either. I did lots of preparation with the products in the gallbladder
starter and stone kits first.
I will insert a disclaimer here. I need to warn you that there is always the possibility of
complications from the flush. If the stones are too large and unable to pass through the bile ducts, not only could
that cause excruciating pain, you could end up having your gallbladder removed in the emergency room. Gallstones
are made of cholesterol primarily but also calcium. If the stones are large and calcified, there is more chance
for complications. So if you know you have stones, I suggest you find out the size and type from your doctor. If
you know your stones are of the calcium variety or are very large, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS GALLBLADDER AND LIVER FLUSH!
Note: I recommend you consult your physician before doing this flush.
DIRECTIONS FOR GALLBLADDER
AND LIVER FLUSH
For this version of the flush you will need one Gallbladder
and Liver Flush Kit containing:
2 OPA 2 oz
1 BiliVen (formerly Gallbladder Complex)
Plan to do your flush when you have a day off with no commitments. We'll assume you've chosen a Saturday.
1. For two weeks before the flush, put 10 ml or 1 ½ -2 tsp OPA in 1 quart of unfiltered organic apple juice
and drink throughout the day. This is the most important part of a gall stone diet as it should help to dissolve
2. The week of the flush, from Monday to Saturday add ¼ cup of the beet recipe to your salad at lunch and
dinner. This is optional but very helpful. Take 1 capsule BiliVen 3x day. Take 1 tsp. of Epsom Salts (available
at a local pharmacy) in ¾ cup water before bed. If it feels like too much, reduce to ½ tsp.
3. Right after lunch on Saturday, is the time to do a coffee enema. Instructions are on the site.
4. At least one hour before dinner take another 1 tsp Epsom Salts in 3/4 cup water.
5. Eat a light dinner of only salad or fruit. Take 3-4 capsules BiliVen capsules.
6. Just before bed, drink 4-6 oz. of extra-virgin olive oil. (I have found the Omega Nutrition Organic Olive Oil
available from omega nutrition to be the most palatable for this procedure. Also Delightfully Turkish Olive oil
and a freshly pressed olive oil from a store like Olive and Baker. ) Follow this with 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1/2
glass of the apple juice mixture.
7. Lie on your right side with your knees pulled up for at least ½ an hour before you fall off to sleep.
If you are too nauseous to sleep put 10 drops of the liquid phosphoric acid, OPA, in an 8 to 12 oz glass of water.
Sip on this throughout the night as needed. It should keep you from vomiting, but if you do so, do not repeat the
olive oil at this time.
8. When you get up, (but not before dawn) take another 1 tsp of Epsom Salts with ½ cup of warm to hot water.
Take 2-4 capsules BiliVen.
9. You will likely pass small green balls in your stool. Be sure to note their size and number. Some stones may
be different colors. As you repeat this flush a few weeks or a few months later, the number and size of stones
should decrease considerably. Some people will pass the stones at night instead of or as well as in the morning.
10. Two hours after the 3rd dose of salts, take 1 tsp of Epsom Salts with ½ cup of warm to hot water. Take
2-4 capsules BiliVen.
11. This procedure can be quite exhausting so plan on spending a quiet day at home.
12. Eat normally, if you are able.
I recommend a coffee enema on the day of the flush day (as stated above) and also, if there is any nausea lingering
on the next morning, another coffee enema or even OPA may resolve that.
This is an old folk remedy that has been used very successfully
for both gallbladder problems and liver problems. I recommend it for people who do not see the flush as an option.
It can be used for all sorts of stomach complaints as well as constipation. It is also an alternative menstrual
cramp treatment and a uterine fibroid treatment. Regular treatments give better results. For gall stone treatment,
consistency is imperative.
You will need:
Cold Pressed Castor Oil
Plastic Wrap or a large plastic bag
Two Old Towels
Old Clothing such as pyjamas or sweat suit
Much of the above is for protection from the castor which is sticky, messy and stains. I keep an old set of clothing
that I use just for castor oil packs. The first two ingredients you will find at a health food store. The brand
of castor oil I use is from "Home Health." They also make wool flannel. Cotton flannel will do if that's
what you have.
Directions for Castor Oil Packs
1. Prepare your bed or couch by placing an old towel where
you are going to lie. If you are going to use an electric heating pad vs a hot water bottle, you will need to situate
yourself near an electrical outlet.
2. Saturate the wool flannel in castor oil. It may be heated first if you like.
3. Place the flannel over your liver and gallbladder area. Do not be skimpy on the area covered. It is better to
cover more than less. I tend to go as large as my heating pad is.
4. Place a piece of plastic over this sticky flannel.
5. Put an old cloth or towel over the flannel.
6. Place the heating pad over top of this and keep it as warm as is comfortable for you.
7. Keep it all on for an hour and try to do it at the same time each day (don't skip it if you can't, though).
Do this for 7 days in a row.
8. Wash the area thoroughly with baking soda and water.
The traditional version of this has you taking "small doses" of olive oil two or three times a day. I
would suggest ½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon at the most. After the 3rd or 4th day you should observe some stones
in your stools.
My own addition to this protocol is to drink organic, unfiltered
apple juice ½ hour at least before breakfast and just before retiring at night. Add the beet recipe to your
diet at ½ beet daily. Avoid fried foods especially, but other fatty foods as well.
