Let’s face it. Just about everyone has Gallstones. Gallstones are found in the liver, gallbladder and connecting ducts. There can be thousands of stones that accumulate in the liver that never show up on a basic blood test. I learned about the Liver/Gallbladder Flush about 10 years ago. I met many people at the time that would show up at a local health group exhibiting their gallstones for all to see. Big stones, little stones, some are yellow green or emerald green, some are metallic looking, tan or brown in color. EEKK!
What are they made out of? Answer: Gallstones are mostly made out of cholesterol as the main ingredient (95%), bile and calcium salts. Their size resemble pebbles, peas, lentils, pinheads, or as big as a walnut! Sometimes, they are stuck together. Could have 20 come out all at once. Freaky! I realized that I had to try this! I eat raw food so I’m in over my head anyway. No turning back now. Indeed, I’m on a cleansing mission to cleanse myself!
How do they come out? Answer: Anus.
Does it hurt? Answer: No, but you may feel a little queasy when doing the actual gallbladder flush. Got a barf bag?
How do I do this? Answer: Well, I teach a detailed workshop in NYC http://www.DonnaPerrone.com on how to do a gallbladder flush and there is no way that I can explain this in the detail needed in a blog. Sign up to my email list and you’d find out when I next class is. I recommend purchasing this book, ‘The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush’ by Andreas Moritz. This book outlines how to do the flush. However, there are two methods on how to conduct a gallbladder flush. The one outlined in Moritz’s book is a 6-Day Preparation and a Gallbladder Flush that consists of drinking 4 ounces of olive oil. That’s right, you heard me. I said 4 ounces of olive oil! I have Italian blood in my veins, but this is taking it a little too far! The other approach, which Dr. Hulda Clark made popular, is a 4-Day Preparation and drinking 8 ounces of olive oil. Please, hold on and don’t faint! I’ll go get the smelling salts immediately!
Okay, why would anyone do this? Have we all gone mad? No! Many common and serious health problems occur due to a fatty liver. Liver congestion and stagnation can contribute to diseases such as heart disease, prostate disease, hormonal imbalances, skin disorders, constipation and digestive issues, excessive weight or wasting, dark color under the eyes, digestive problems, asthma, cancer, kidney diseases, MS, insomnia, joint issues, puffy eyes, hepatitis, and many more.
The body is a whole entity. When one part is not functioning optimally then this affects other bodily functions. The liver is extraordinarily resilient and can return to normal function when given the right circumstance. Gallstones can inhibit liver performance and can affect the growth and functioning of every cell in the body. Any malfunction, deficiency or abnormal growth pattern of a cell is largely due to a poor liver performance. The speedy delivery of oxygen or nutrients to the cells is diminished. Cancerous tumors are in part, a result of obstruction of blood vessels, connective tissues, and lymphatic ducts that prevent cells from receiving proper oxygen and nutrients.
By doing a gallbladder flush you take steps to restore your liver and improve your health. By decongesting the liver and gallbladder the body’s 60-100 trillion cells will breathe more oxygen, receive sufficient amounts of nutrients, eliminate metabolic waste products, and maintain perfect communication links with nervous system, endocrine system, and every part of the body.
How do I know if I have gallstones? Answer: Liver congestion and stagnation can reflect in the skin. Having skin blemishes, discoloration, dryness, oiliness, wrinkles, or lines. Marks on the skin such as black spots, small or large brown patches usually found on the face, hands, forearms and on the back of the shoulder. Also, any vertical lines found between eyebrows and if skin color under the eyes is yellowish or a dark color. Ever see an angry person with intense vertical lines between the eyes? Oh, Scary!
What causes gallstones? Answer: Overeating, (been there, done that), eating between meals, (got me again), eating heavy meals in the evening, eating excessive amounts of protein, dehydration, rapid weight loss, low fat diets, pharmaceutical drugs, and emotional stress.
Is there any adverse risk to doing this? Answer: There is a risk taken when crossing the street in NYC. Yes, it is possible, but an extremely rare occurrence that gallstones may get lodged on their way through the ducts that create a blockage that may cause an attack. I would assume that if this were to happen that your gallbladder’s days were numbered anyway. Why not cleanse the liver and get those guppies out as soon as possible!
What if someone doesn’t have a gallbladder? Answer: Yes, you can still do this flush according to Andreas Moritz.
There is some controversy on whether what is passed are really and truly gallstones. A client of mine did have his stones tested and received an inconclusive result. In my opinion, I feel that there are gallstones that are passed and that there is also oil that is released. The consumption of this quantity of oil demands a huge amount of bile to be released and this response creates a great cleansing for the liver and gallbladder.
Do I have to fast to do the flush? Answer: No, please eat extra healthy and clean your colon!
How many flushes must I do? Answer: Usually 10-12 and then 1 every other year for maintenance. I’ve done this 6 times and feel I have gotten most of them out.
Donna’s Personal Suggestion List: Please drink 32 ounces of apple juice or take Malic Acid, Hold your nose and breath when you sip the oil and exhale only when you sip some lemon juice, use a straw to drink the olive oil, lay on your right side afterwards, clean your colon using a colonic the day before or the morning on the actual day of the flush, best to do a second colonic the day after you pass the gallstones, do not drink liquids after you drink the oil until the next day, (the belching is hell), stay home the day you pass stones, (passing gallstones in a public bathroom is a Big No No!), lay on your side if nothing is coming out, and do the gallbladder flush in the evening rather then the afternoon.
If doing this flush is not for you, or you have been unsuccessful doing the flush consider taking Systemic Enzymes. These enzymes are taken away from food and support all the body’s metabolic processes. You will need a tremendous amount of enzymes to autolysis gallstones. I get mine from my raw food mentor, Dr. Fred Bisci. http://www.fredbisci4health.com
You can expect a disease free life, improved digestion, more energy and vitality, improved emotional health, a younger body, a clearer mind, and a better life from doing this flush.
I make no prescriptions or diagnosis. It is advised that you consult with a licensed health care professional when considering doing this cleanse. You take full legal responsibility when making any decisions regarding your health care.
