Cleaning the liver bile ducts is the most powerful procedure that you can embark on to improve your body’s health.

The use of lemon juice and olive oil to remove gallstones is the oldest trick in the book. This version adds Epsom salts to the procedure which helps to open the bile ducts and valves. It is recommended that you first have a good kidney cleanse and get rid of all the parasites such as worms, flukes and micro-organisms that are present in our bodies regardless of how hygienic we may be! This can be included in the first two days of the procedure. People who suffer from kidney stones are generally deficient in magnesium, vitamin B6 and calcium. Most of these people are advised not to take calcium supplementation however the calcium found in kidney stones are leached from your own bones and not from a supplement that contains both calcium and magnesium.
When your system is too acidic and you are not taking the correct supplementation, calcium is removed from the bones in order to restore balance. This is one way that osteoporosis can develop! One of the reasons why it is a good idea to flush the liver and gallbladder is to avoid becoming too acidic.

The liver is a natural detox organ, why should it be cleaned out?
The liver is responsible for getting rid of waste and the manufacturing of hormones, enzymes and metabolites that keep us healthy. It also expels excess oestrogen from the blood stream as well as potential cancer-forming cells on a daily basis. People with high cholesterol and homocysteine definitely have problems with the liver! The liver also helps break down and eliminate synthetic medicines, some of which are extremely toxic to the liver (such as statin preparations used to lower cholesterol).One only has to read the package-inserts of most synthetically produced drugs to see how many side-effects there are involving the liver. Women who suffer from menopausal symptoms such as hot flushing and who are oestrogen-dominant have impaired liver function. Many people are overloaded with xenoestrogens which are man-made compounds derived from hormone replacement therapy, plastic bottles, water and red meat amongst others. Women may wish to consider switching to more natural hormones (such as herbal or bio-identical hormones) after the liver and gallbladder flush.

One of the many jobs of the liver is to make bile. The liver is full of tubes (biliary tubes) that delivers bile to one large tube (common bile duct). The gallbladder is attached to this common bile duct and acts as a storage reservoir. Eating fat or protein triggers the gallbladder to squeeze itself empty after about 20 minutes, and the stored bile finishes its trip down the common bile duct to the intestine. If the bile ducts of the gall bladder are blocked and gallstones are present, the liver can no longer function optimally. You start to feel tired, constipated, bloated, and sluggish and are unable to digest fats.

What the liver flush involves
Adapted from Hulda Clarke’s “The Cure for all Diseases”
You will need ½ cup of good quality olive oil, 4 tablespoons of Epsom salts, ½ cup of grapefruit juice (pink grapefruit is best) and 1 litre of non-acidic fruit juice such as pear or clear apple. Allow at least 2 days for the cleansing diet and then 1-2 days for the flush out and recovery. Make sure that you are near a bathroom over that time. This process is recommended after the parasite cleanse and when your kidneys are functioning well. Otherwise take a dose of Parasite Remedy in the morning and the evening during the first two days and drink a lot of freshly blended fruit or vegetable juices in between glasses of water. It is best to make your juice fresh every day; add chunks of apple, lemon, carrot, beetroot etc. Also add a handful of parsley and celery sprigs if you need to clean out the kidneys.

On the first day eat only salad, fruit, soup or steamed vegetables. If you are very hungry, you can have hard-boiled eggs, a can of tuna in brine, baked beans and dry biscuits. Avoid all fats such as salad dressing, mayonnaise, butter, oil or margarine. This is so that pressure can build up inside the gallbladder. You can also drink herbal teas and fruit juices.

Eat the same way on the second day; do not eat or drink anything after 14h00.  Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tablespoons in 3 cups water and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings, ¾ cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to chill (for convenience and taste only).

18h00. Drink one serving (¾ cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts. You may add some non-acidic fruit juice or else you can drink it neat as a chaser after the Epsom salts to get rid of the taste.

20h00. Repeat by drinking another ¾ cup of Epsom salts. You haven’t eaten since two o’clock, but you won’t feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success; don’t be more than 10 minutes late or early.

21h45. Pour ½ cup olive oil into another jar. Squeeze the grapefruit by hand into a measuring cup (remove the pulp with a fork). You should have at least ½ cup, more (up to ¾ cup) is best. Add this to the olive oil. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh grapefruit juice does this).
Now visit the bathroom one or more times, even if it makes you late for your 10 o’clock drink. Don’t be more than 15 minutes late.

22h00. Drink the olive oil potion that you have mixed. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. Make sure that you drink this standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for the elderly or very weak people).
Lie down immediately otherwise you may fail to get the stones out if you don’t. The sooner you lie down, the more stones you will get out. Lie down flat on your back with your head high up on the pillow. Try to keep perfectly still for about 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones travelling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the Epsom salts relaxes and opens the bile ducts and the olive oil activates the pumping action. Go to sleep, you may fail to get stones out if you don’t; most people just sleep through this process.

Next morning upon wakening, take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea wait until it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don’t take this potion before 06h00.

2 Hours later. Take your fourth (and final) dose of Epsom salts. By now you will be feeling the urge to visit the toilet. Some people take a lot longer to start purging their bowels, while others may go during the night. After 2 more hours you may eat. Start with fruit juice, followed by fresh fruit half an hour later. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.

What can you expect?
Your bowels will become very active and it will feel as though the sluice gates have opened. Gallstones are mainly composed of cholesterol and this will float on the top whilst all the solid waste will sink. Look for the bright green stones as this is proof that they are genuine gallstones and not just food residue. Other than gallstones, the bile duct may be full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones, some of these appear as tan-coloured crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging stones. Do not be alarmed by a pungent odour of sulphur – this is from the magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts).

This is a very safe way of cleansing the liver and gallbladder; all without invasive surgery to boot! Unfortunately the surgical alternative involves removing the gallbladder, so although this cleanse may sound a bit unsavoury it is still the simplest way of getting rid of these unpleasant ‘squatters’. Don’t wait for the excruciating symptoms that accompany gallstones – each person on a Western diet can benefit from this spring clean at least twice a year!
