A properly functioning liver is vital for optimal health, good digestion and emotional balance.
The liver processes and detoxifies your blood, removing toxins to be safely expelled through the digestive tract.
When your liver is congested, full of toxins and liver stones, your liver will no longer be able to properly carry out its important functions. Your blood will not be filtered properly, leading to numerous symptoms and health complications.
Bile is produced in the liver, it’s necessary for the digestion of fats. When the liver is clogged up, bile flow is significantly reduced, resulting in bad digestion as well as increased liver stagnation. So there is a compounding effect in an unhealthy liver, and in order to restore liver health we need to flush the liver of its stones, parasites and congestion.
A liver flush is a powerful procedure, which purges more bile out in a short period of time, than you would be able to flush out using any other method. As a result you will be able to flush out stones, parasites and toxic build up… putting you on the journey to vibrant health.
How Does The Liver Flush Work?
When we consume oil, the liver releases bile in order to digest the oil.
During a liver flush you consume greater quantities of oil. In doing so, your liver produces and releases a high volume of bile, enough to push out even inch sized liver stones from your liver bile ducts and gallbladder.
Epsom salts dilate the bile ducts of the liver, making it much easier for liver stones to slide out.
First and foremost, I am not a doctor and this information is not intended to be medical advice. This information is not intended to replace the advice of your doctor or any treatment recommended by your doctor.
Liver flushing is generally safe for people with no complicating medical factors. Before embarking on a liver flush, your kidneys and bladder should be functioning well.
You should never flush when constipated. I recommend a bowel cleanse before and after a liver flush.
If your liver is full of parasites, a liver flush will not be very effective and you may release few, if any, liver stones. Prior to liver flushing, it is wise to do a parasite cleanse.
A few important things to note:
- Don’t flush when Ill.
- During the liver flush, abstain from taking any vitamins or minerals that you don’t absolutely require.
- This flush is not intended for anyone under the age of 18.
- Do not flush during pregnancy.
- If you are taking prescribed medicine, please consult with your doctor before flushing.
- Before attempting the liver flush, make sure you are able to tolerate the Epsom salts OK.
To maximise the success of the flush, there are some preparation steps you should follow.
Preparing for the Liver Flush
For at least 5-7 days before your liver flush, consume apple juice and take 2-3 tablespoons per day of Apple Cider Vinegar. Apple juice and ACV contain Malic Acid, which softens liver stones, resulting in greater stone yields when flushing.
Another great stone crushing herb I would recommend taking prior to a liver flush is called Chanca Piedra, it’s a powerful stone softener and works well in combination with Malic Acid.
It’s good to prepare everything well before the flush, here is a list of everything you’ll need:
- Olive oil – half a cup.
- Lemons or grapefruit – enough for half a cup of juice.
- Pint Jar for mixing the liquid.
- Epsom salts – 4 tablespoons.
Liver Flush Schedule
Please note that you can tweak this schedule. If your on a later sleeping schedule, than you would want to modify the schedule so that you are drinking the oil right before you sleep.
8am-2pm: Eat a fat free light breakfast and lunch.
The reason for eating fat free meals prior to the liver flush, is that you want to let bile build up, so that there will be more to expel stones and congestion when you carry out the flush.
I find it better to miss out on lunch entirely, only eating a light breakfast. The results seem to be better, but this is totally up to you.
2pm: Don’t eat or drink after 2pm
6pm: Epsom salts – dose 1
Mix 1 tablespoon of Epsom salts with a small amount of hot water, wait in the it is dissolved than top it up with cool water until it’s at about ½ cup of liquid. Epsom salts have a nasty taste (in my opinion) and adding a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar will take the edge off. Drink the mixture and then suck on a lemon to kill any after taste of the Epsom salts.
8pm: Epsom salts – dose 2
Repeat the dose of Epsom salts again (1 tablespoon of Epsom salt in water or apple juice)
9:45pm: Prepare the oil and lemon mixture
Pour ½ cup of olive oil into your pint jar.
Wash grapefruit or lemons in hot water. Squeeze them into a cup until you have ½ cup of juice.
Combine the citrus juice in with the oil.
10pm: Drink the citrus and oil mixture
Shake the citrus and oil mixture in your pint jar and drink it down. Try to get it down within 10 minutes or so. As soon as you drink it, lay down flat on your back and try to get to sleep as fast as you can. If you need to sleep on your side, sleep on your right side.
The more relaxed your liver is, the easier the stones will slide through the passages of your bile ducts. If you are asleep, your bile ducts will be as relaxed as they can be and the procedure will be the most efficient.
If you are unable to sleep right away, just quiet the mind by watching your breath, then focus your attention on the area of the liver.
6am (or when ever you wake up): Epsom salts – 3rd dose
Take the 3rd dose of Epsom salts in water.
2 hours later: Epsom salts – 4th dose
Take the 4th and final dose of Epsom salts. If you really can’t bear a 4th dose, you can skip this step.
Another 2 hours later: Eat again
You can now begin eating again. But keep it light, avoid meat, especially red meat. Eat vegetables, fruits and some grains such as rice or oatmeal.
