I am not a big fan of liver flushes, but I have done them and have supported many through them. Personally I prefer coffee enemas. However, thousands of people swear by them so this is what I have found is the best way to do them.
First, please note: 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 be aware of.

Kicking Out Old Problems with Liver/Gallbladder Flushes
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, that is highly unlikely to happen. Using a coffee enema is even more helpful. However, if it still makes you nervous you are best to avoid it and it can be substituted with a coffee enema.
What might improve from a Liver/Gallbladder Flush?
Apart from helping with the pain and discomfort of a poorly functioning digestive system, all of the symptoms mentioned above may be helped by a series of flushes. They are:
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
Used 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 frequently gallstones left in the bile ducts. In fact, I recommend daily coffee enemas for 21 days following removal to clear out anything remaining in the bile ducts. Flushes can also be used, but not daily. Wait two to three weeks before repeating.
A flush helps to alleviate congestion due to gallstones and/or thickened bile (also called gallbladder sludge). 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. So, clearly it can be extremely effective for many. Personally, I prefer a gentler approach. The products on GallbladderSupplements.com combined with the recommended diet of “real food” can be very effective and less dramatic. However, I have done both coffee enemas and flushes and have had no trouble with either but I did lots of preparation with the products in the Gallbladder Starter Kit 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! I recommend you consult your physician before doing this flush.
DIRECTIONS FOR LIVER FLUSH
For this version of the flush, YOU WILL NEED:
- The Gallbladder and Liver Flush Kit containing:
2 bottles of Fos Formula 2 oz – Each 2 oz bottle contains 12 teaspoons.
1 Gallbladder-ND Detox tincture
- Epsom salts powder or capsules. Pure Organics has 100 capsules of 675 mg per capsules, which means you would take 8 or 9 capsules per time and one bottle will get you through the flush. The capsules are less nauseating than the liquid.

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 9-12 droppers (note that the droppers do not fill more than 1/2 way) or 1 ½ -2 tsp Fos Formula 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 soften the stones.
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 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. Click here for instructions.
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.
6. Just before bed, drink 4-6 oz. of extra-virgin olive oil. (Buy a light one. I have found the Omega Nutrition Organic Olive Oil available from omega nutrition to be the most palatable for this procedure, or 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 2-3 full droppers of the Fos Formula 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.
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. Note that some of this may be congealed olive oil as well as stones.
10. Two hours after the 3rd dose of salts, take 1 tsp of Epsom Salts with ½ cup of warm to hot water.
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 again if there is any nausea lingering on the next morning. You could try 1 dropperful of Fos Formula in 1/4 c. of water every 15 minutes first. This usually helps.
