Gallbladder Flush And Liver Cleanse

The liver is a vitally important organ and a gallbladder flush and liver cleanse can help keep it operating at an optimum level.

A liver cleanse usually involves and benefits from a  quick gallbladder flush. The liver has incredible regenerative capabilities, since toxins constantly damage liver cells as the liver filters toxins in the blood.

Though the liver is capable of regeneration, the constant and chronic bombardment of toxins ends up overwhelming the liver’s ability to protect itself.

A gallbladder flush removes some of the pressure put on the liver by removing gallstones or gallbladder stones. Gallbladder stones  obstruct the delivery of bile from the liver to the gallbladder, and this  puts additional pressure on the liver.

Gallbladder And Liver Diagram

The liver makes 1 to 1.5 quarts of bile a day, a digestive juice that digests fats.

Biliary ducts in the liver carry bile to one large duct called the “common bile duct.”

The bile moves through the common duct to the gallbladder for storage.

The consumption of meat and fat causes the gallbladder to squeeze itself empty to aid with its digestion, and the bile travels to the small intestine.

The picture demonstrates how  gallbladder and ducts can become blocked by gallbladder stones, and impede the flow of bile and interfere with normal digestion.

Gallbladder stones blocking the Gallbladder

The build up of gallbladder stones cause back pressure on the liver and cause the liver to slow its production of bile.

The accumulation of gallbladder stones leads to less cholesterol leaving the body, and rising cholesterol levels.

Gallbladder stones are porous and pick bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasites. These stones become a constant supply of harmful substances for the body.

Liver Function

The liver screens the blood for toxins, viruses, and bacteria, detoxifies alcohol and certain drugs, and plays a major part in the supporting the body’s immune system.

The liver uses Kupffer cells, a type of white blood cell, to destroy viruses, bacteria, old blood cells, and other substances it filters.

A damaged liver will less effectively fight infection, manufacture essential enzymes and proteins, and produce bile to aid digestion.

Damage will compromise the liver’s ability to absorb and store vitamins A, D, E, and K, manufacture and regulate hormones, and to remove waste from the blood.

You can damage liver function through the use of recreational and prescription drugs, consuming toxic food, and by touching and breathing in toxins.

Autoimmune like as non-infectious hepatitis, viral hepatitis, and cancer also damage liver function.

Cancer does not usually start in the liver, but moves there from others areas of  the body like the colon, breast, lymph glands, lung, pancreas, and stomach.

The very unnatural and toxic societies we live in constantly keep the liver  under pressure to filter the large amount of toxins that enter it.

Liver Damage Symptoms

  • Fatigue, lack of appetite, loss of energy, weakness, weight loss and nausea.
  • Jaundice: The liver can’t remove bilirubin from the blood, which causes a yellowing of the skin and white part of the eyes
  • Nails become curved and white rather than pink
  • Digestion problems resulting in a loss of appetite, weight loss, and anemia
  • Lighter stool due to the lack of bile production
  • Longer blood clotting time die the liver’s compromised ability to make the clotting protein, fibrinogen
  • Water retention due to the liver’s compromised ability to help the kidneys remove water

Gallbladder Function

The liver produces bile to digest and store fats, and it is store in the gallbladder. The body also uses bile to remove waste products like bilirubin.

Gallstones or gallbladder stones clog the gallbladder and obstruct the flow of bile into and through it. This interferes with the delivery of bile from the liver and puts pressure on the liver.

Gallstone Symptoms

  • Develop of gallstones
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Chest pain (angina)
  • Tenderness in the abdomen
  • Heartburn
  • Unusual colored stool
  • Vomiting

Cleaning The Gallbladder & Liver

The following gallbladder flush and  gallbladder cleanse is derived from Dr. Hulda Clark’s gallbladder cleanse in  the book “The Cure for All Cancers.”

Generally, you should clean the kidneys and the colon before you cleanse the gallbladder, liver, or any other area of the body.

An onslaught of toxins easily overwhelm faulty functioning kidneys or colon. Toxins can reenter the bloodstream, instead of the body excreting them.

The Hulda gallbladder  cleanse recommends cleaning the body of parasites first, because it is more difficult to remove gallstones without killing parasites.

I jumped right in the first time I cleaned my gallbladder without doing a parasite killing regime.

I removed about 30 gallbladder stones performing the gallbladder flush and feel like I could have definitely removed more. People can have hundreds of gallstones in their gallbladders.

You can use black-walnut and wormwood to clear the body of parasites to assist the gallbladder flush.

Another suggestion is to drink plenty of fresh apple juice made from organic apples for 2-3 days before the gallbladder flush.

Apple juice contains malic acid which dissolves and softens gallbladder stones to make for a more successful cleanse.

Some people suggested the gallstones passed during  the gallbladder cleanse are not really gallstones.


Dr. Hulda produced medical document/s of  its customer/s who had the gallstones analyzed, confirming they were gallstones.

The gallbladder flush causes the gallbladder to squeeze itself.  It is possible that gallbladder stones can become lodged in the ducts.

  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil Extra Virgin (The original recipe calls for olive oil, but many people have difficulty swallowing the olive oil without getting nauseous. The important thing is to use an oil to stimulate the gallbladder to contract, so you can use another oil. It was easy for me to swallow unrefined coconut oil, because I  sometimes I drink one to two tablespoons for quick energy. Try using unrefined coconut oil if you have difficulty swallowing the olive oil.)
  • 3 lemons or 2 small pink grapefruits (I used 3 lemons. Some people recommend grapefruit juice over lemon because they feel it mixes better with the olive oil.The lemon juice mixed fine to me.)
  • 4 tablespoons Epsom salts (People who can’t tolerate Epsom salt should not do this particular cleanse.)
  • 3 cups water (I used 3 cups of organic apple juice instead)

Purpose of Ingredients

  • Apple juice contains malic acid that dissolve the cohesion between gallbladder stones.
  • Epsom salt relaxes bile ducts to let stones pass easily.
  • Olive oil (coconut oil) makes the gallbladder squeeze itself to push out gallstones.
  • Lemon juice or grapefruit juice cuts the taste of the oil and makes it easier to swallow.

The folllowing is taken from “The Cure for All Advanced Cancers”, p. 562ff:

Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day. Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they could prevent success. Stop the parasite program and kidney herbs, too, the day before.

Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal, fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves or honey (no butter or milk). This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.

2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink after 2 o’clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tbs. in 3 cups water (I used 3 cups of fresh squeezed apple juice instead)and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings,3/4 cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only).

6:00 PM. Drink one serving 3/4 cup of the ice cold Epsom salts. If you did not prepare this ahead of time, mix 1 tbs. in 3/4 cup water now(I used apple juice). You may add 1/8 tsp. vitamin C powder to improve the taste (I didn’t do this).

You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil (ozonated, if possible) and grapefruit out to warm up (I used 3 lemons).

8:00 PM. Repeat by drinking another 3/4 cup of Epsom salts.You haven’t eaten since two o’clock, but you won’t feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.

9:45 PM. Pour 1/2 cup (measured) olive oil into the pint jar. Add 2 drops HCl to sterilize (I didn’t do this). Wash grapefruit twice in hot water and dry; squeeze by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with fork. You should have at least 1/2 cup, more (up to 3/4 cup) is best. You may use part lemonade (I squeezed 3 lemons).

Add this to the olive oil. Also add Black Walnut Tincture (I didn’t add this to the list because I think it is less effective at this stage. The Black Walnut is used to kill parasites. I think it is more effective to do a parasite killing regime before the cleanse.) Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh grapefruit juice does this).

Now visit the bathroom one or more time, even if it makes you late for your ten o’clock drink. Don’t be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.

10:00 PM. Drink the potion you have mixed. Take 4 ornithine capsules with the first sips to make sure you will sleep through the night (I didn’t take them. I also drank the oil lemon juice mixture straight down.)

Take 8 if you already suffer from insomnia. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. You may use oil and vinegar salad dressing, or straight honey to chase it down between sips.

Have these ready in a tablespoon on the kitchen counter. Take it all to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).

‘Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don’t. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time.

Don’t clean up the kitchen. As soon as the drink is down walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver.

Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of gallbladder stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!). Go to sleep, you may fail to get stones out if you don’t.

Next morning. Upon awakening take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea wait until it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don’t take this potion before 6:00 am.

2 Hours Later. Take your fourth (the last) dose of Epsom salts. You may go back to bed again.

After 2 More Hours you may eat. Start with fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.

My Experience Doing the Gallbladder Flush

I used coconut oil instead of olive oil. The lemon juice coconut oil  mixture wasn’t horrible and wasn’t too difficult to swallow. I didn’t even have to hold my nose. 

I mixed apple juice with the Epson salts for two reasons. One it made it taste better, and the malic acid in the apple juice helped to weaken the bonds between gallstones. I drank the apple juice Epsom salt mixture easily. I didn’t use the ornithine capsules to help me sleep because I didn’t want to introduce this new substance to my body.

I just rested on my back, breathed and thought of peace, and I was able to sleep without too much disturbance. Yes I did pass gallbladder stones, and plenty of them. It didn’t hurt and they passed easily because the Epsom salt relaxed my ducts and intestines. I am ready to do my next gallbladder flush and liver cleanse.

Herbs For The Liver Cleanse

I performed the gallbladder cleanse to quickly flush out  built up cholesterol, toxins, and gallbladder stones from gallbladder.

I used gallbladder flush as a jump starter for the three month herbal liver cleanse I performed. The gallbladder flush was the big broom I used to quickly sweep away major obstructions.

I used  burdock root, dandelion, yellowdock, sarsaparilla, and elderberry  to deep clean and repair my liver from toxic damage. 

A very important thing to remember is these herbs are diuretics, and as a result will strip water from the water. This is not an issue as long as you drink the recommended daily value of water.

The DV for water is around one gallon a day, and it is better to drink spring water to support the pH of the blood and homeostasis in the body.
