patients that are free of intestinal overgrowth or imbalances of yeast,
parasites, bacteria, and viruses, the liver flush can be of great benefit in
improving digestion, metal and chemical detoxification, thoracic pain, and food
intolerances. The flush can be repeated if needed at two week intervals up to
4-6 times. During both days stop all non-essential supplements and medications
and make sure that the second day is free enough that you can spend it resting
This procedure is not
recommended without professional oversight. If you have a large gallstone and
it is "flushed" into the common bile duct, you may have created a
medical emergency. Ask if you are not sure or have an ultrasound confirm the
size of your gallstones!
a few days before the flush, drink 8-16 ounces of organic apple juice with
20-30 drops of Phosfood (orthophosphoric acid), which
is available from our Nutritional Pharmacy.
Eat a no-fat breakfast and a no-fat lunch. Do not eat or drink after .
Mix 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts in 1 1/2 cups of water and refrigerate. This
will make up two doses.
At drink half of the
mixture from step 2. It tastes pretty bad so do it as
quickly as possible.
At drink the remaining
half of the mixture.
Take a bottle of virgin pressed olive oil out of the refrigerator and two
grapefruits. Prepare your evening so that you'll be ready for bed at .
A little before ,
fresh squeeze 3/4 cup of grapefruit juice (remove the pulp) and add 1/2 cup of
olive oil, and shake it very well.
At drink the mix
fairly quickly. A straw helps. Drink it while standing up. Make sure you are
totally ready to go to bed at this point.
Lie down immediately after drinking it and stay on your back very still for
approximately 20 minutes and then go to sleep.
Eat only fruit for breakfast and a no-fat lunch.
Don't be surprised if you experience nausea and
gastrointestinal discomfort during the night. There should be no pain.
Expect loose watery bowels in the
morning. Some flushes do more Epsom salt in the morning and we leave that
up to your discretion, though in more sensitive patients it is not a good
idea. The bowel movements are often filled with pea colored "stones"
sometimes 100 or more.
