i am curious as to if i need to do a liver cleanse to remove stones. i don't have any symptoms of them, so i don't feel i need to. but i would like to get some advice from someone more experienced. i've been 100% raw for a few months now, but before hand always ate pretty healthy. i've always loved my veggies and fruit! do just looking for some advice on this. thanks!

Like you, I've also ate really healthy. I love salads and was always drawn to fruits and veggies. I was vegetarian for a number of years. I had an ultrasound and the doc said my gallbladder was clean. Even though it didn't show on the ultrasound, I later found out that there were hundreds of little, uncalcified stones in my system. Apparently, the ultrasound would show stones if they were calcified and mine were not.
I've done the Liver/Gallstone cleanse 3 times total. I got hundreds of pea-sized stones every time. The week after the cleanse I feel fantastic. It's like the high I get from intense cardio excercise, but it lasts the whole week!! That's just my experience. In comparison to when I go to my cardio kickboxing class, the high only lasts for a day.
I used the epsom salt and olive oil method. I was a little nauseous the first time only. Subsequent times have been better.

epsom salt and olive oil method? That totally made me cringe, lol, but I'm curious about it. I have this skin condition on my face for YEARS, and nothing has worked to clear it. I've read that a good liver cleanse could possible do the trick. Sooo, can you tell me exactly what you did with the *shutter* epsom salt and olive oil? How did you mix it? How much? How many times a day? For how long?

I did the olive oil and salt water flush liver cleanse twice. I can't eat olive oil to this day.

I followed the most popular recipe by Dr. Hulda Clark. It's one of 9 different recipes listed here: http://curezone.com/cleanse/liver/default.asp
I hear ya, Mialsse. Thinking about olive oil still makes me nauseous. Mixing it with grapefruit juice or have lemon juice chaser helps.
I've been on raw for 2 weeks now and don't feel a "need" to do a liver cleanse anymore.

Hey guyzzzzzzzz ;)
I've done the L/G flush twice and like you, lynne, i got lots of pea sized stones in both flushes. I would caution anyone doing this to make sure your bowels are working well and to get a colon cleanse after each flush to make sure all the stones are gone.
Here's a link to the book I used:
Very informative and answers all your questions. The toughest part is getting that epsom salt drink down... yukky :eek: .... I'll probably be doing another one soon since it says you should repeat the cleanse until you don't see any more stones.

Did you find that the liver flush helped with weightloss? A few years ago I tried adding coconut oil to my not raw diet. I had read how it helped boost metabolism and helped in weightloss.
When it didn't work for me, I had a Chiropractor tell me it was because my liver wasn't clean. He put me on a 3 week program (Standard Process brand) that consisted of supplements and a powder I put into a shake 3 times a day.
I lost 8 pounds in the 3 weeks (but I was hungry all of the time!) and after that I averaged an 8 lb. a month loss. I was still taking the supplements and that may have helped the most.
I'm thinking of trying the LF with olive oil and epsom salt, but only if it will make a huge difference in weightloss, as losing weight for me has become VERY hard. Even raw food hasn't helped. And if I have to drink that concoction, it had better be worth it!
Thanks for any advise!
