Gall Bladder Flush

by Ed

Continuing with my Spring Cleaning series:

Keeping your gall bladder working well is important to good digestion, particularly digestion of fats. If you feel sluggish or bloated after eating oily or greasy food you are probably overdue for a gall bladder flush. It’s a good idea to have one once a year in any case. If gall stones run in your family, or you know you are prone to them, twice a year might be better.

There are a few variations on the gall bladder flush, some of them take only one day. I prefer this five day version. It is very easy to do.

Eat normally during the five days, except add four to five organic apples or four to five glasses of organic apple juice every day.

On the fifth day, do not eat dinner. At 6pm take a tablespoon of epsom salts in a half a glass of warm water. Do the same at 8pm. Be sure to get epsom salts for internal use. The large containers for bathing have impurities in them.

At 10 pm get ready for bed. Last thing before getting into bed drink half a cup of olive oil mixed with half a cup of lemon or grapefruit juice, preferably fresh squeezed. Get straight into bed and lie on your right side with your right knee pulled up. That will help the oil move into the gall bladder.

All of these procedures help to soften the stones, open the bile duct or increase movement in the gall bladder.

The next day you should find a number of small green stones in your stool. Some “experts” say the stones are just the olive oil mixed with the epsom salts, but the first time I did this I had at least a dozen little stones, and the second time I did it I had none. Usually I find a few, depending on how long it has been since I last did it. The first time I did it, it made a huge difference in my ability to digest oily foods.

Generally Gall Bladder flush is best before a Liver flush.

Hi Edward I looked for the liver flush but did not see it. Where is it on the web site?

Hi Edward

I too was wondering where the liver flush is on the sight. Also it is my understanding that beets are a food that supports liver function, any other suggested foods to support liver function? Thank you.
