View Full Version : Liver cleanse
10-19-2006, 11:34 PM
Ok, so I did the olive oil part last night and haven't felt so *nauseous* in years... I had to keep a bucket by the bed all night coz I felt like I'd be sick, and even though I woke up constantly through the night thinking the time had finally come, somehow everything managed to stay down.
But... so far (it's now half past 12pm) NO stones have come out at all! All that awful sick feeling for 19 hours and no results to show for it. I'm so disappointed - I followed the instructions to the very letter! Has anyone else done a liver flush and had no stones? This one was only 4 days, 3 pre-days of eating very little, no fat and loads of apple juice and then the last day of 2 epsom salt solutions followed by 1.5 cups of 50/50 grapefruit juice and olive oil...
Maybe they're still on their way, who knows? But one thing I do know is that my liver has stones (I know this coz I've had gallstones and had my GB out) and that it struggles if I have too much fat in my diet. And by too much I mean about 50g a day... which is not much at all!
I only did the flush coz I had a really strong feeling that it's what my body needed. Ah well, there must be more going on inside me that I can't comprehend. Don't think I'll be repeating this though - I've had to take the day off I still feel so sick :(

Hmmmm, I'm sorry to hear that you are ill.
Which flush are you doing?

There's more to the liver flush than olive oil.
What exactly did you do?

whatre your bowel movements like? are you constipated? how long have you been raw?

I missed this. Did you have any elimination with the salt flush?
I know that some people do not react well to the liver/gallbladder flush b/c their liver cannot handle the high amount of fats. I read of one person a year ago who attempted the flush and NOTHING came out so she was put on special herbs to strengthen her liver and then proceeded wtih the flush.
I think it depends on each person. It may be more beneficial for you to do fasting on apple juice. The malic acid in apples is said to help breakdown the stones also, is liver/colon friendly.
Depending on the nature of your stones and where they are, the flush can be harmful, meaning possibilty of stones getting stuck in the ducts.
If you want to go the eating route, the raw food lifestyle has helped members here with stones.
:) Best to you

Well, the problem I see here is that the olive oil/epsom salt flush is called a liver flush, but actually, it flushes the GALL BLADDER of stones. If you have no gall bladder, then yes, all that oil will make you sick because you have NO GALL being produced to make the olive oil digestable.
I'm so sorry this happened to you - I don't think you'll see any stones.
I'd eat lots of raw.. .flush with lots of water.. and just wait...

It seems I was just a bit impatient!!! Now I am going to the loo every half hour or so and LOADS of stones are coming out (sorry if that's TMI, lol) - and they're as big as the ones that they took out with my gallbladder, about the size of a pea. Oh, this is so good - I just *knew* my liver needed some help :D
The cleanse I did was from this website: http://curezone.com/cleanse/liver/huldas_recipe.asp - it's Hulda Clarke's method. You have 3 days of loads of apple juice for the malic acid (I had some juice but also ate loads of apples) with no fat intake then on the 4th day you have Epsom Salts at 6pm and 8pm then the olive oil at 10pm, lay down on your right side with your knees pulled up and go to sleep. If you can that is - I slept only a little coz I felt so ill. Then in the morning you're meant to have 2 more lots of ES but I could only stomach the one - it made my nausea much worse. I did have diarrhoea all day on and off but no stones til now. Interestingly enough, until I ate something. It's taken me til about 3pm to stomach food and as soon as I ate something (greens and tomatoes with a tiny bit of avocado coz I was craving something dense) it all started happening.
I am SO happy!!! That's less work that my poor liver has to do to keep my system running... I'll do this again now I know it works - maybe it'll help with the massive imbalance in my endocrine system.... Yay!!
Thanks for your responding to my post!
