Home Liver Cleanse
Some of the material you are about to read is quoted from Dr. Hulda’s book, “The Cure for All Diseases”.
Excerpt from the book:
Cleansing the liver of gallstones dramatically improves digestion, which is the basis of your whole health. You can expect your allergies to disappear too, more with each cleanse you do. Incredibly, it also eliminates shoulder, upper arm, and upper back pain. You have more energy and increased sense of wellbeing.
It is the job of the liver to make bile, 1 to 1.5 quarts in a day! The liver is full of tubes (biliary tubing) that deliver the bile to one large tube (the common bile duct). The gallbladder is attached to the 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.
For many persons, including children, the biliary tubing is choked with gallstones. Some develop allergies or hives but some have no symptoms. When the gallbladder is scanned or X-rayed nothing is seen. Typically, they are not in the gallbladder. Not only that, most stones are too small and not calcified; a prerequisite for visibility on an X-ray. There are over half a dozen varieties of gallstones, most of which have cholesterol crystals in them. They can be black, red, white, green or tan colored. The green ones get their color from being coated with bile. Notice in the picture (pg. 545) how many have imbedded unidentified objects. Are they fluke remains? Notice how many are shaped like corks with longitudinal grooves below the tops. We can visualize the blocked bile ducts from such shapes. Other stones are composites – made of many smaller ones – showing that they have regrouped in the bile ducts sometime after the last cleanse.
At the very center of each stone is found a clump of bacteria, suggesting to scientists a dead bit of parasite might have started the stone forming.
As the stones grow and become more numerous the back pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. Imagine the situation if your garden hose had marbles in it. Much less water would flow, which in turn would decrease the ability of the hose to squirt out the marbles. With gallstones, much less cholesterol leaves the body, and cholesterol levels rise.
Gallstones, being porous, can pick up all the bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasites that are passing through the liver. In this way “nests” of infection are formed, forever supplying the body with fresh bacteria. No stomach infection such as ulcers or intestinal bloating can be cured permanently without removing these gallstones from the liver.
Doing a Kidney Cleanse and Parasite Cleanse prior to doing the home liver cleanse will improve the effectiveness.
Do any dental work first, if possible. Your mouth should be metal free and bacteria free (cavitations are cleaned). A toxic mouth can put a heavy load on the liver, burdening it immediately after cleansing. Eliminate that problem first for best results.
Home Liver Cleanse And Gallbladder Cleanse Flush, NO Surgery:
4 oz. (1/2 Cup) Olive Oil Extra Virgin
1 Big grapefruit (2 small) (Or 3 lemons).
4 Tablespoons EPSOM salts = ( MgSO4 + 7H2O) = Magnesium Sulphate = EPSOMITE = Magnesium Sulfate Heptahydrate).
24 ounces. (3 cups) water.
(1 cup = 250 ml = 2.5 dl = 0.25 l ).
Juice your grapefruit, to be mixed later this evening.
Home Liver Cleanse Instructions:
Drink a minimum of 24 ounces of apple juice per day for 6 days in a row. The apple juice has special concentrations of acids that soften the liver and gallstones. Make sure to avoid the following types of foods: protein rich (peanut butter, most meats), sugar (as much as possible), and alcohol. You also need to avoid drinking cold, icy drinks, which tend to chill the liver and negate any progress the apple juice has made so far.
While adhering to the above instruction, it will be helpful to have a colonic or enema. In order to pass the stones which are being loosened and flushed out of your body, the colon must be as uninhibited as possible. This may sound a little bizarre for most people, but I assure you that it is well worth the effort. Your doctor will likely be able to recommend a facility where this can be done.
Choose a day like Saturday for the actual cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day. Get ready for day six. There are several things that occur on this day, and instructions must be followed precisely.
Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they may reduce the success of the cleanse. If you are doing a parasite or kidney cleanse, stop both the day before.
Eat a no-fat breakfast, preferably fresh fruit or vegetables, no oils, butter or milk. At around 1pm, have a light lunch; baked potato or other vegetables with salt only. Also, finish your apple juice early this day. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.
Do not eat or drink after 2 o’clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later.
Mix 4 table spoons of Epsom salt with 24 ounces of water. This is then divided into 4 servings. (½ cup each)
Drink one serving of the Epsom solution.
Drink one serving of the Epsom solution. (always only 2 hours apart)
Pour half a cup (measured) olive oil into a pint jar. Squeeze grapefruit juice by hand into a measuring cup. You should have at least half a cup (up to 3/4, 3 quarters of a cup) is best. You may top it up with lemon and water if you like. Add this to the olive oil. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh grapefruit does this).
Now visit the bathroom one or more time, even it makes you late for your eleven o’clock drink. Don’t be more than 15 minutes late.
Be ready for bed ahead of time. Drink this mixture and lie down in bed immediately, keeping your head elevated. Stay completely still for about 20 minutes, in order to allow your liver and gallbladder to loosen the stones. You may feel sick at this point. This is simply the toxins being released, and it should be seen as a sign of progress in this procedure. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!). Go to sleep. The better you sleep, the more stones you will get rid of.
Get up. (It should be 8 hours after your drank the olive oil / grapefruit juice). Drink another ½ ( half) cup of the Epsom salt solution. 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 7:00 AM. (8 hrs.)
Note: Some people prefer doing “one” Salt Flush at 7:00 AM in place of the “two” Epsom salt solutions at 7:00 AM and at 9:00 AM. You may want to try it both ways to see which works best for you. One person had this to say, “By the way, I have found it much better to finish the home liver cleanse with salt water flush instead of the 3rd and 4th Epsom Salts – much better flushing / elimination of stones, and none of that painful intestinal cramping.”
Drink your last ½ (half) cup of the Epsom salt solution. Prepare to spend a good amount of the day on the toilet as you will be releasing many stones from the liver and the gallbladder. You may also need to perform another Enema at some point in order to make sure that your colon is stone free. (A Salt Flush is basically an enema from the top down and will wash out a lot of stones.)
After 2 more hours you may eat. Start with fresh fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fresh fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.
Note: You can adjust the schedule if you prefer to start an hour earlier. Just be sure to get up 8 hours after your last dose to drink more of the Epsom salt solution.
In order to reap the full benefits of the liver flush, you need to follow up by performing the same procedure once a month for several months. Over time, you will notice that the stones become fewer and fewer, until you are totally clean. Also, a teaspoon of olive oil a day will keep the bile ducts clean and prevent new stones from forming.
This process is perfectly natural and there are no known cases with side effects other than a little bit of discomfort of numerous trips to the toilet.
Another Note On The Home Liver Cleanse:
Some people substitute the 3 cups of water used in this recipe to dissolve the Epsom salt with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit juice, or freshly pressed apple juice to hide the taste of the Epsom salt.
You may also add 1/8 (one eighth) of a tea spoon of powdered vitamin C to the Epsom salt and water to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth if you are annoyed by the taste.
Also lemon juice can be substituted for mixing with the olive oil instead of grapefruit if it is more convenient, although grapefruit juice seems to mix better with the oil.
How well did you do with the home liver cleanse?
Expect diarrhea in the morning. Use a flashlight to look for gallstones in the toilet with the bowel movement. Look for the green kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones, not food residue. Only bile from the liver is pea green. The bowel movement sinks but gallstones float because of the cholesterol inside. Count them all roughly, whether tan or green. You will need to dump a total of about 2,000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies or bursitis or upper back pains permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days, but as the stones from the rear travel forward, they give you the same symptoms again. You may repeat cleanses at two week intervals. Never cleanse when you are ill.
Sometimes, the bile ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones. They appear as “chaff” floating on top of the toilet bowl water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of tiny white crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging the stones.
How safe is the home liver cleanse?
It is very safe. My opinion is based on over 500 cases, including many persons in their seventies and eighties. None went to the hospital; none even reported pain. However it can make you feel quite ill for one or two days afterwards, although in every one of these cases the maintenance parasite program had been neglected. This is why the instructions direct you to complete the parasite and kidney rinse program first.
This procedure contradicts many modern medical viewpoints. Gallstones are thought to be formed in the gall bladder, not the liver. They are thought to be few, not thousands. They are not linked to pains other than gallbladder attacks. It is easy to understand why this thought: by the time you have acute pain attacks, some stones are in the gallbladder, are big enough and sufficiently calcified to see on X-ray, and have caused inflammation there. When the gallbladder is removed the acute attacks are gone, but the bursitis and other pains and digestive problems remain.
The truth is self-evident. People who have had their gallbladder removed surgically still get plenty of green, bile coated stones, and anyone who cares to dissect their stones can see that the concentric circles and crystals of cholesterol match textbook pictures of “gallstones” exactly.”
Benefits Of Doing The Home Liver Cleanse.
Every chronic or degenerative disease defined or undefined by conventional medicine, is directly connected to a weakened liver.
It is entirely possible to heal every disease, regrow hair, correct scoliosis, heal MS, regrow teeth, regenerate every organ, heal every infection, regenerate bone, heal shattered bones completely like new, dissolve cysts and tumors, regenerate eyes and vision. The block to these processes could very well be the liver.
Much has been said and done about self-sabotaging patterns, but at the physiological level, the inability to convert what one wants into actual reality is a blockage in the liver that stops the completion of energy down certain pathways.
The Chinese understood this chemical physiology very well and practiced medicine around it for thousands of years. Anger, inability to understand, hear, see, connect, complete, etc. are all functions of the liver. A person who is constantly unfulfilled is actually blocked somehow. This discussion could go into psychosomatic problems and blocked emotions, but at a physiological level, this is a liver problem.
Skin problems and chronic infections are liver problems. The liver manages all such things and when it is blocked in any way, various parts of the body suffer.
Cancer is a natural process that happens several hundred times per day. Cells that are damaged but still young are “switched” into a self-destructive mode where growth occurs abnormally until there is enough blood supply to the area for the white blood cells to come in, clean it up, remove it and take it, via the blood and lymph, to the liver for processing and elimination. This is a natural process that does not threaten a healthy person.
Some modern fear-based medicine philosophers have postulated that the body just fails somehow, is out of control or is confused. Let me go on record: “The body is never confused and absolutely never fails to do the very best thing to preserve itself right up until the moment of death!”
Cancer And The Home Liver Cleanse.
Dr. Christopher once made this statement: “No one was ever a cancer patient who was not first a liver patient.”
When cancer appears, it is because the liver is so stopped (due to toxins, stress, fear or loss) that it cannot process safely the cancer cells. The liver becomes so involved in “self-preservation” that has no reserves left to destroy and carry off cancer cells. When this happens, the cancer actually takes over part of the liver’s function of cleaning toxins out of the blood as toxins are “food” to cancer cells.
When the liver is healthy and is capable of removing all of the toxins from the body, cancer cells are literally starved to death for lack of food. It is a blocked, weakened, plugged liver that allows cancer to get out of control.
It has also been said, “There was never a cancer without a sense of loss.” Emotions are stored in the liver and there is always an underlying emotion associated with cancer. Sometimes it is a “death” wish, anger, or unforgiveness. I have talked with many cancer patients and some admit not being able to forgive, or have some other emotional hang up. Others refuse to admit underlying emotions, perhaps due to fear of what others might think or because of pride. However, if they are completely honest with themselves, they will find some thoughts and emotions that need to be changed and forgiven; otherwise the liver may never be able to function fully and that person will probably die.
The liver is responsible for literally thousands of functions, which are done trillions of times every day! The management of every cell, every process, every chemical, every communication, every aspect of elimination, healing and repair, every aspect of digestion and assimilation, every aspect of immune performance, fat deposition, metabolism, etc, is either directly or indirectly managed by the liver. The liver is to the chemical systems and physical tissues of the body as the brain is to the nervous system. The heart is important, but it is really mostly a pump. The liver actually manages everything.
There is no varicose vein, no cyst, no scar tissue, no emotional pattern, no chemical or hormonal imbalance, and no metabolism or elimination issue, which cannot be directly traced to the involvement of the liver. Even in places where operations seem to work independent of the liver (renal function, for example) the liver is very much involved.
We can trace hormone regulation to the liver, including those that affect the kidneys. We can also see that many items to be eliminated by the kidneys are first converted in the liver to manageable wastes. Further, if we look into Chinese medicine, we discover that the heat for every operation in the human body has its source in the liver. It represents the element called wood (representing growing plant life) and is involved with growth and fuel for heat. It picks up excess water in the system and converts it to healthy growth. It is the culmination of the five elements into the source of life for all animals on earth; plants.
So we see that no behavior and no cellular activity can be separated from the liver. We could say this of other systems too, but the liver is really the hub of all the other systems. It is the manager of everything and the source of life energy for everything.
One other system that relates to all other systems intensely is the bowel. The bowel works differently, though, as it works like a relay or breaker system for all the other systems and organs. During early fetal / foetal development, every organ and system is connected to and develops from the bowel. So the bowel is as intensively integrated as the liver, but in a very different way. The liver in turn manages the cells of the bowel.
Still, the liver dumps into the bowel and the importance of this relationship cannot be overstated when doing liver cleansing. The bowel must be kept open the whole time. By this, it usually means that the individual takes colon hydrotherapy, cathartic herbs or both; sufficient to produce copious bowel movements; hopefully 3 to 5 easy ones every day.
In other words, you get the bowel moving with bowel herbs and / or colonics and then you start your liver herbs or liver program. In this chapter, I will give you a formula that will effectively keep the liver and the bowel moving.
In order to keep the liver healthy, both diet and cleansing must be considered. In addition to this, some people will need liver strength, liver heat, liver cooling agents, liver stimulation and perhaps other liver aids to be used with cleansing. We have seen a number of times that liver cleansing will sometimes be ineffective if the liver is too weak or too out of balance to cleanse properly. In these cases, we use herbal formulas that will help in the specified way. These will be taken for several weeks before intensive liver cleansing is undertaken again. Cleansing must be done, but sometimes help is needed for stability first.
So, in the following lines I will provide several formula options and the activities they are designed to support.
Home Liver Cleanse Support.
Liver Strength: There are a number of different formulas. This variation is simplified.
Use 3 parts of Dr. Christopher’s Original Formula Vitalerbs (It is best to purchase these items in one pound packages of the powdered herbs. www.drchristophersherbshop.com).
Milk thistle seed powder – 2 parts.
Ginger root powder – 2 parts.
Turmeric root powder – 2 parts.
Ashwaganda powder – 1 part.
Licorice root – 1/2 (half) to 1 part (use one if there is known adrenal fatigue, stress or chronic fatigue).
This formula works a little better for raw strength for the liver than some of the other formulas. The ginger helps the turmeric work and the ashwaganda is great for those whose condition is very weak.
This formula should be taken two times daily in water. I recommend 1 to 3 tablespoons based on your size and metabolism (if you eat more, take more). Just stir it into water and drink it down.
Alternative Home Liver Cleanse Support Recipe.
This formula is a replacement for Dr. Christopher’s Liver Gall Bladder Formula, which also works well, but is not designed for bowel and stones also. It is made up as tea. Unless otherwise specified, all teas are made with one teaspoon of herb to one cup of water, either distilled or Alkalized Water.
3 parts Senna leaf / pods.
2 parts buckthorn root.
1 part comfrey root.
1 part ginger root.
3 parts peppermint.
2 parts catnip.
2 parts sarsaparilla or yucca stalk or root.
2 parts Oregon grape root.
1 part cloves.
1 part cardamom pods.
1 part licorice root.
Use whole stevia leaf powder to taste.
This formula is very carminative, increases digestive secretions and you should drink one cupful (warm) before each meal. Increase dosage until a very strong bowel action results. If this does not result, then look for a much stronger formula, such as Dr. Richard Schulze’s Intestinal Formula #1 (1-800-herb-doc to order his formula).
For people with “hot” conditions of sweating or anger or any other overly hot condition, this formula will give some relief. However, a hot liver is a constipated liver and the stone cleanse is even more important than this formula.
Dandelion root – 1 part.
Oregon Grape root – 1 part.
Ginger root – 2 parts (yeah, I know it is warming, but it is also diffusive, so that it actually helps to diffuse excess heat from the core).
Burdock root – 1 part.
Comfrey root – 1 part.
Peppermint – 2 parts.
Purchase powdered and stir into warm water or make tea, or you can encapsulate the herb as is your preference. Drink 2 cups of tea per day (night and morning) or take 4 capsules 2 times daily.
To wrap it up, let me just say that every complaint has an improved chance of being helped by a liver flush. Many symptoms will not go away until the overwhelming majority of stones are purged out. It may take 8 to 10 flushes to get all of the stones out, but no one should stop until after they do the flush correctly two consecutive times with no stones whatsoever.
Many experts agree that if you want to overcome allergies or multiple chemical sensitivity disorder or cancer or arthritis or any serious disease, you have to get upwards of 2500 stones. This really will happen and people really do have this many or more stones blocking the liver up. It is a shock to see how bad it really is in most Americans, even children! You may not count every stone, but try to get a pretty good idea about every toilet bowl full so that you have an idea of how you are doing.
You may also want to consider a coffee enema for liver detoxification. (See Enema)
Any discussion of any healing system would be very deficient without a discussion of diet as it relates to prevention of disease and healing. (See Diet)
