Over 500,000 gall stone operations are performed in the US each year – the great majority apparently unnecessarily.
That is a startling figure. I’ll come back to it later.
It seems that many people suffer from gall stones and having lost 10 kilos in 3 months, I read that the residue from the fat-burning could be cholesterol that is released and ends up in the liver, waiting to be recycled. I have a family history of gall stones; my Father had his removed when he was 54, and as it was before keyhole operations, his wound became septic which kept him off work for ages. My sister had her gall bladder removed in her late forties; “Forty, Fat and Fair” she was told.
I decided, therefore, to do something about it in the form of a liver flush. Now, this might not suit everyone and it is not for the squeamish. I found various instructions on the Internet and decided to follow those of Dr. Hulda Clark.
A bit of research showed that a lifetime of eating C.R.A.P (C.R.A.P.: C – Carbonated drinks. R – Refined sugars. A – Artificial sweeteners & colours. P – Processed.) causes a so-called fatty-liver. The liver is the processing works for the body and performs many functions. Amazingly, it is the only organ that can regenerate, so it is never too late to do something for your liver.
After I did the flush, I mentioned it to a friend “Oh, so you have read Andreas Moritz’s book The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse ?” I had not until after I did the flush, but in it, he claims that gall stones are the root of most that is evil in our bodies and are the result of stones that form in the bile ducts of the liver. The stones, usually made of cholesterol or hardened bile, block these ducts or get passed to the gall bladder, where they also eventually block the bile duct. This means that there is accumulated bile sludge and furthermore, only a small amount of bile enters the small intestine. Bile is vital for good health as it aids the absorption of nutrients and the expulsion of waste.
The flush – what I did
In retrospect, I would have fasted longer. I started the process at lunchtime and after 2 PM, I did not eat anything. At 6 PM, I dranks a solution of Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate), which was to relax and dilate the bile duct. It tastes terrible, so you have to cool it in the fridge. At 8 PM, I repeated the process.
At 10 PM, I drank a mixture of 125 ml of olive oil, 125 ml of fresh lemon juice, 2 crushed cloves of garlic and half a teaspoon of powdered ginger. It tastes absolutely DREADFUL!
The instructions said go to bed immediately and lay on your right side for a while. I did go to sleep, but at about 3 AM, I awoke and felt that I had an internal pinball machine fitted. I also felt like I had a hangover, with some nausea. Eventaully I fell asleep again. At 6 AM, I got up, not feeling too bad.
I had another Epsom salt drink, but -argh! I forgot to put it in the fridge! It is the worst taste ever. I could not eat, but the drink fills you somewhat. At 8 AM, I had the last of the epsom salts, and actually walked the dog. This might have been ill-advised, because when I came back, I exploded in the loo!
If you have seen the bit in “Dumb and Dumber” where Lloyd gives Harry laxatives and Harry is at the Swanson’s residence and is on the loo, you will know what I mean by explode!
Without going into the gory details, the results were obvious. It looked as though I had eaten green peas and black lentils- hundreds of them! The temporary diarrhoea continued for an hour. (Don’t make any plans to go out that morning). At the end of it, I was exhausted.
At 10 AM, I ventured an apple and a cup of tea. No problems.
I found it prudent to eat some Acido yoghurt, to replace the flora in my gut that I had probably lost. I could have taken probiotics, but at $50 equivalent for 30 capsules, I thought the yoghurt, at $3 was a cheaper solution.
I had twinges in my right side for a couple of days, but that is passed. Would I do it again? Yes, after reading The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse at regular intervals.
I was asked if it was possible to do this after you have had the gall bladder removed and the answer is “yes”, because you don’t stop producing gall stones after gall bladder removal.
I wish that my Father and sister had known about this body maintenance before they had their gall bladders removed. It seems that the gall bladder plays a far more important role than is recognised by doctors, but as long as it is a “nice little earner”, I suppose people will be offered the operation before the flush.
Over 800,000 hospitalisations and $2 bn are spent on gall bladder disease a year. I hope that my blog here will better inform people on the options availbale.
Incidentally, it makes me wonder why drug companies have not developed a liver flush? Perhaps they have a pact with the medical profession; don’t you dare create something that threatens our livelihood! I find it significant that the Healthline website does not mention liver flush as a treatment for bile duct blockage (but specifies gall bladder removal).
PS: If your doctor says that you should not drink olive oil and lemon juice, ask him or her why it is OK to drink carbonated sugary drinks!
