You can expect your allergies to disappear more and
more with each subsequent liver cleanse. Each liver cleanse "cures"
a different set of allergies, suggesting that the liver is
compartmentalized - different parts having different duties.
As a bonus a liver cleanse also eliminates most
shoulder, upper arm and upper back pain.
To cleanse the liver completely you may need to do five or six
cleanses, about three weeks apart. During each cleanse you will pass
gallstones from the liver and gall bladder.

Instructions for a Liver Detox
Introduction to the standard Liver
This is a natural way to effectively and painlessly
remove from the gallbladder and liver, most stones, gravel,
crystals, debris and residues that hinder your body's detoxification
and healing. It cleanses the liver bile ducts and eventually
purifies the blood stream by making the liver cleaner and more
efficient. It is not unusual to also void copious quantities of
parasites from the liver during this cleanse; however, a parasite
cleanse is indicated before and after the completed liver
This is a procedure you can do at home, over one
weekend, using ingredients from a local food store - for a little
more than $10.00. In addition, it is non-toxic, fast acting, has
NO side-effects, promotes increased well-being, raises the
level of available energy, provides freedom from most allergies, and
it helps cope with addictions.
Although this procedure
has been practiced with great success for untold generations, its
common use has largely been forgotten, and in this day and age its
propagation is not only unknown but even suppressed by the
traditional medical system.
Purpose of the cleanse:
This cleanse is used to clean the liver and gall
bladder of gall stones, gravel and sand to dramatically improve your
body's health. The liver cleanse also has the ability to expel
pollutants and toxins from the gallbladder and liver. You can expect
your allergies to disappear more and more with each subsequent
cleanse. Each liver cleanse "cures" a different set of allergies,
suggesting that the liver is compartmentalized - different parts
having different duties. Incidentally, a liver detox also eliminates
most shoulder, upper arm and upper back pain.
advocate that this cleanse be used INSTEAD of a gallbladder
operation (only you or your physician can make that decision after
learning all about the benefits of this cleanse), however, since
this procedure cannot deteriorate such a condition, there is an
excellent chance that such an operation will indeed not be necessary
after one or more of these liver cleanses. The main advantage is of
course that a liver cleanse not only purges the gallbladder of it
contents, but also does major house cleaning in the liver which an
operation can never achieve.
One of the main function of the liver is to make
bile, 1 to 2 quarts in a day! The liver is full of tubes (biliary
tubules) that deliver the bile to one large tube - the common
bile duct. The gall bladder is attached to the common bile duct
and acts as a storage reservoir. Eating fat or protein triggers the
gall bladder to squeeze itself empty after about twenty minutes (or
after ingesting the liver cleanse solution). The stored bile
finishes its trip down the common bile duct to the small intestine
and eventually to the colon (large intestine). Of course the gall
bladder does not hold enough bile to neutralize all of the liver
cleanse solution you have ingested. The empty gallbladder then
signals its master, the liver, to dump all available bile forcefully
into the common bile duct as well. In this fashion, the liver turns
itself practically inside out and empties all of its available bile
together with stones, gravel and crystals to condition (treat) the
bile using the potent liver cleanse solution. Epsom salt serves to
relax the tubules so that the passage of larger stones is painless
and smooth. The Epsom salt also serves to evacuate the small
and large intestines of feces.
For many persons, including
children, the biliary ducts (tubing) are choked with gallstones.
Some develop allergies or hives, but some have no symptoms at all.
When the gall bladder is scanned or X-rayed, nothing is seen.
Typically, the worst stones are not in the gallbladder but in the
liver. Not only that, most are too small and not calcified, a
pre-requisite for visibility on X-ray. There are over half a dozen
variety of gallstones, most of which have cholesterol crystals in
them. They can be black, red, white, green or tan colored. The green
ones get their color from being coated with bile. When dissected and
observed under a microscope, many have imbedded unidentified
objects. Are they fluke remains? Many are shaped like corks with
longitudinal grooves below the tops. We can visualize the blocked
bile ducts from such shapes. Other stones are composites - made from
smaller ones - showing that they regrouped in the bile duct some
time after the last cleanse.
At the very center of each stone
scientists found a clump of bacteria, suggesting a dead bit of
parasite might have started the formation of the stone. Perhaps it
is the liver's function to encapsulate parasite adults parasites to
avoid getting destroyed by such an invader. That's fine for one or
two, but how about thousands of such encapsulations?
Eventually the above-described defense
mechanism turns into an immense blockage that keeps the liver from
detoxifying and eliminating harmful substances such as solvents and
parasites. You see, as the stones grow and become more numerous, the
back-pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile, which is, of
course the transportation medium for the undesirable substances.
Imagine the situation of your garden hose having marbles in it. Much
less water would flow, which in turn would decrease the ability of
the hose to squirt out the marbles. With gallstones and liver
stones, much less excess cholesterol leaves the body and cholesterol
levels may rise. A liver cleanse will invariably result in a
lowering of cholesterol levels.
Also, gall/liver stones, being porous,
can pick up bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasite stages that are
passing through the liver. In this way, "nests" of infection are
formed, constantly supplying the body with fresh irritating
bacteria. No stomach infection such as ulcers (check also into
Manuka Honey as an antidote for ulcers) or intestinal bloating can
be cured permanently without removing these stones from the
gallbladder and liver.
Cleansing the liver bile ducts is the most
powerful procedure you can undertake in order to improve your body's
health. A liver cleanse should be done twice a year if
possible. Ideally, it should be part of a semi-annual
kidney/liver/parasite cleanse the sequence of which is very
important and enhances the overall results.
Drink apple juice for
three days preceding the liver cleanse. For these three days, eat
frugally, if you must, and then only small amounts of raw
unprocessed fruit and/or vegetable salads. Every day take at least
one full quart of high quality, unfiltered, preferably home-made
apple juice. You should be able to see the sediments on
the bottom of the container. The pectin in the apple
juice helps to soften and flatten the stones in the gall bladder
and liver. This will also help their passage through the bile
ducts. This semi-fast also empties the intestines of their food
content and makes the collection of stones less

They could hinder success of the cleanse.
Stop any parasite or

Eat a no-fat fruit breakfast and
light fat-free lunch such as cooked cereals with fruit but no
butter or milk. This allows the bile to build up and develop
pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more
2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink
after 2:00 o'clock. If
you break this rule you could feel quite uncomfortable later. Get
your Epsom salts ready. At 2:00pm, mix 4 heaping
tablespoons of Epsom salts in 3 cups of water, add 1/2 teaspoon of
Vit C powder and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings,
3/4 cup each. Please keep in mind that the first serving
begins at 6:00pm and the 2nd serving for the
evening is taken at 8:00pm. The other two
required servings are reserved for the following
Place the jar in the
refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste
only). Take an optional rectal enema
before 4:00 PM with distilled (not chlorinated)
warm water to clean out your large intestines of any unwanted
fecal matter. The cleaner your intestines are, the easier it will
be for the stones to be eliminated. Besides, if you want to see
just what you will be eliminating, it is more appetizing to look
only for stones and not be turned off by pungent
6:00 PM. Drink one serving (3/4 cup) of the ice cold
prepared Epsom salts water. If you did not prepare this
potion ahead of time at 2:00 PM, mix 1 heaping tablespoon in
3/4 cup of water now. You may add 1/8 teaspoon of vitamin C powder
to improve the taste and to avoid 'the runs'. If you have no
vitamin C powder then add a little citrus juice to improve the
taste; but this is entirely optional. You can certainly drink a
few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the
olive oil, lemons and grapefruit out to warm up a bit.
8:00 PM. Repeat the above by drinking another 3/4 cup
of Epsom salts water. You have not eaten since two o'clock, but
you won't feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done now. Don't
answer your telephone and be prepared to stay by yourself for the
balance of the evening. The timing of the actual cleanse is
relatively critical to achieve success. Do not be more than 10
minutes early or late for anything that follows next.
9:45 PM. Pour 3/4 cup (measured cup) of your high
quality olive oil into the pint jar. Pour the prepared 3/4 cup of
squeezed grapefruit and lemon juice into the measuring cup, adding
this to the oil. Close the jar tightly with its lid and shake
briskly until well mixed, almost watery. Only fresh squeezed juice
will do this.
Now visit the bathroom one or more
times, even if this makes you slightly late for your ten o'clock
drink. Be ready to go to bed and STAY in bed. Don't clean
up the kitchen. Do it the next day.
10:00 PM. Take the solution to your bedside if you want,
but drink it standing up. Drink the potion you have mixed. If you
have them, take four optional Ornithine capsules with the first
sips to make sure you will sleep through the night. Take eight if
you already suffer from insomnia. Get all of it down immediately,
if possible. Very elderly, or weak persons, should space this over
a period of five minutes.
Lie down immediately. The sooner you
lie down, the more stones you will get out. Put your knees up to
your chest in a fetal position. Lie on your right side for at
least half an hour. The oil/citrus juice mixture will go to your
gallbladder and liver. These organs will not know what to do with
THAT much oil emulsion, so they will spasm and throw off all the
available bile - plus stones, gravel and crystals.
One half hour later
- you may turn on your
back with a good thick feather pillow. Try to think about what is
happening in the liver. Think loving thoughts -
your liver is sensitive and responsive to feelings of resentment,
vindictiveness and hate. Try to keep perfectly still for about
half an hour or at least 20 minutes. Visualize the cleansing
action taking place. You may feel a train of stones traveling
along the bile ducts like marbles. There is little likelihood of
pain because the bile duct valves are open - thanks to the Epsom
Relax and go to sleep. Let nature do
her thing. Tomorrow you will be cleaner, much cleaner, and also
healthier than before.
Next morning (early):
Upon wakening, take your
third dose of prepared Epsom salt solution. If you have
indigestion or nausea (highly unlikely), wait until this is gone
before drinking the Epsom salts. Don't take this potion before
6:00 AM. It would be best if you don't get up and have someone
else give you this potion. This drink will act as a mild laxative
and provoke several later loose bowel movements. Drink more water
than usual to replenish lost liquids.
2 hours later. Take your fourth (the last one - Thank God!)
dose of Epsom salts.
Drink 3/4 cup of the mixture. You may go
back to bed if you like.
After 2 more hours you may get up and take something into your
empty stomach. Start with some fresh-made fruit juice. Half an
hour later, eat some fruit. One hour later you may eat regular
food but keep it light, uncooked and natural. By supper of the
next day (Sunday) you should feel fully recovered and ready to
slay a dragon.
How well did you do?
Expect diarrhea in the
morning of the second day (Sunday). The ideal way to see what you
are actually eliminating is to defecate into a white porcelain bowl
or large white plastic bucket. The bowl or bucket is used instead of
the toilet to also see the reddish crystals which collect at the
bottom of the bowl (the stones float on top) and those crystals
would ordinarily be lost somewhere at the bottomless hole in the
toilet and you would have missed them. If you don't care to see the
crystals - by all means, use the toilet.
Another way would be to use the toilet and look into it for the
stones with a flashlight. Look for the greenish kind, since this is
proof that they are genuine gallstones and not food residue. Only
bile from the liver is green. The bowel movement (if there is any)
sinks, but gall and liver stones float because of the cholesterol
content. Eventually, you may have to eliminate up to 2,000 stones,
in several sessions, over a period of a year or so, before the liver
is clean enough to rid you of all allergies or upper back, or other
symptoms, permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them
for a while, but as the stones from the rear of the liver travel
forward, they might give you the same symptoms again. For best
results, if this is the first time you do this, repeat the Liver
Cleanse two weeks later because the liver cleanses in stages -
moving deeper toxins and debris and parasites into lower and more
shallow areas of the liver tissues. You may repeat this
gallbladder/liver cleanse at two-month intervals until no more
stones come out. Then, do the cleanse as a maintenance every six
months. Two tablespoons of fresh olive oil per day will provide
optimum liver performance.
Never purge when you are ill.
Pregnant mothers should consult their pediatrician. The elderly
should do this purge under the supervision of a health specialist.
Drink lots of water during the second and third
Sometimes, the bile
ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round
stones. They appear as a "chaff" floating on top of the toilet bowl
water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of tiny white
crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging
How safe is the liver
It is very safe. Professionals and
individuals have conducted thousands of liver purges, including many
persons in their seventies and eighties. We have heard nobody ending
up in a hospital, and none reported pain. The author, in over a
dozen years of private practice, has never seen any complications.
This liver purge could make you feel a little uncomfortable for a
day or two thereafter. Stirred-up toxins are in solution, begging to
The above procedure
contradicts many modern medical viewpoints. Gallstones are thought
to be few, not thousands. They don't get linked to pains other than
gall bladder attacks. It is easy to understand why this is thought:
By the time you have acute pain attacks, some stones
are in the gallbladder, are big enough
and sufficiently calcified to be seen on X-ray, and they
have caused inflammation there.
When the gall bladder is
removed surgically, the acute pain attack is gone, but bursitis,
allergies, digestive problems and other symptoms recur and get
worse. Stones are not thought to reside in the liver. If the liver
is operated upon, only the largest and worst offenders can be
removed - yet uncountable stones, gravel and crystals remain in the
already clogged liver, which has not improved at all. The truth is
self-evident: People who have their gallbladder surgically removed,
still eliminate green, bile-coated stones with our liver purge.
Anyone who cares to dissect these eliminated stones can see that the
concentric circles and crystals of cholesterol match textbook
pictures of "gallstones", exactly.
In the highly unlikely event that
you feel waves of pain reaching up to your throat, you might have a
gallstone stuck in a bile duct. Clay-colored stool is evidence of
bile duct blockage. Epsom salts can relax that bile duct in 20
minutes. Take a heaping tablespoon in 3/4 cup of water but
only on an empty stomach or you may feel quite ill.
Taking a large dose of Valerian herb, 6 to 8 capsules four times a
day, including bedtime, may also help to relax the duct. If you do
get relief, you can be sure it was a spasm of the bile duct system.
The magnesium in the Epsom salts relaxes spasms. It would be best to
clean the liver a number of times (at two week intervals unless too
ill) to try to dislodge the sticking gallstone. If this does not
relieve the pain then you need to consult a medical
It is advisable to drink copious amount of water during the
second and third day, when you eliminate the waste matter and body
fluids as well. This will prevent
My Opinion on the Liver Detox Diet
I read Andreas Moritz's The
Amazing Liver Cleanse about a year ago.
I went out and bought everything I would need, and it
is still in my bathroom unopened.
However making this page has renewed my interest, I
will keep you posted if I ever get round to it!
The health benefits must be enormous if you can put up
with chronic diarrhea for a few days.
If you would like to try the The
