Despite its beautiful name, none of us want to keep those bulky, irritating, and sometimes disgusting fats around our torso called Love Handles. No matter how fancy names they give it to make it sound good, we still don't want to keep it for two things: It's deviating from what's beautiful and what's unhealthy. Men, women, and even children hate them, so there should be no reason why you should ...
Spring is the time to cleanse the liver / gallbladder! Here’s how you can easily do a nice cleaning at home without pills or expensive programs.
Note: Before you do some Organ cleansing, you need to clean the colon or large intestine. There is no point in cleaning any other organ, if the colon is stuck or has blockages. Waste from the other organs will not be eliminated, but will simply be forced to recirculate and can be deposited elsewhere in the body.
So, before trying this gallbladder / liver flushing program, get some colonics (or enemas at least), drink at least 2 liters of pure water a day, and include mostly vegetables and fruits in your diet or some other good source of fiber. daily for a few weeks.
Bail: If you suspect you may have gallstones, do not attempt this cleanse. An ultrasound can tell you if you have them, also if you feel a sharp pain when pressing the ribs on the gallbladder.
With that said, here are the steps to follow for a simple and natural gallbladder and liver cleanse:
Step 1. From Sunday breakfast to Friday lunch, drink at least a liter of apple juice or cider (one and a half liters, if you weigh more than 160 pounds) every day. It should not contain sugar or additives or be concentrated. Organic is definitely preferred.
The effect of so much apple is to soften the sludge that tends to accumulate in the gallbladder, which generates an inadequate processing of fats, leading to gas, bloating, heartburn, etc.
Make sure your water intake is kept high and your overall diet is light – no fried, not a lot of beef, never pork (as it is too dense and requires too much energy from your body to process).
An optional step n. # 1 is eating nothing but apples and drinking plenty of water from Wednesday until lunch on Friday, for those who want to shorten the program. But you may experience headaches on the first day or two of an apple fast as your body begins to detox.
Step 2. Three hours after lunch on Friday, dissolve 2 teaspoons of Epsom salts (or disodium phosphate, if you can get it) in about an ounce of hot water and drink it. It’s extremely salty and can be followed by a few ounces of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice to chase it down. Do not eat other foods after lunch or during the rest of the day. However, keep hydrating.
Step 3. Two hours later, repeat step 2. Keep your water intake high. The effect of the salts is to clear a path for the bile and mud to pass through later and not get stuck anywhere.
Grapefruit or lemon juice is good to drink during this time, as it helps to alkalize the bloodstream to compensate for the acidic condition that detoxification produces. If you have a sensitivity to citrus fruits, you can find alkalizing products at a health food store or put half a teaspoon of baking soda in each glass of water on Fridays and Saturdays.
Step 4. Just before going to bed on Friday night, mix half a cup of unrefined olive oil with a few ounces of grapefruit or lemon juice and shake well. Drink it. If you feel dizzy after this, a few sips of Coke or Pepsi will calm your stomach.
Step 5. Go to bed immediately and lie on your right side with your right knee close to your chest for 30 minutes. This position keeps the oil in the stomach long enough to send a message to the gallbladder that fats are on the way.
Fats signal the production of bile. Many fats cause the gallbladder to become ballistic. When you lower your leg after 30 minutes, the gallbladder literally convulses to expel enough bile and, violaMud comes out too!
In fact, I felt like this was happening. After sliding my leg down straight, I felt a kind of tug for several seconds in that area, as I spit out the mud.
Now go to sleep. You have earned it.
Step 6. The next morning, first thing in the morning, dissolve two teaspoons of Epsom salts again in about two ounces of hot water and drink it. Follow with a few ounces of grapefruit or lemon juice, if you liked it this way.
Do not eat food for an hour after drinking this. This second purge pushes the sludge and toxins that were released last night out of the system.
It would be better if you could stay near a bathroom for the rest of the day, maybe the whole weekend. Do not make too many plans to leave the house, dedicate this weekend to your health.
What you will soon see removed are greenish, jelly-like chunks floating in the bowl, the size of grape seeds to cherry pits. This is the bile sludge surrounded by olive oil.
Be glad that they are no longer in your body. You’re witnessing years of good health added to your life, and the little sacrifices you’ve made in the last few days are worth it.
Other benefits you may notice are gradual relief of pain in your upper back, especially in the right quadrant, such as the shoulder and neck area. Cleaning the gallbladder also frees up the liver, the most vital organ we have for the more than 500 things it does every day.
This is a great program to do every few years, as the poor quality of our food (unless you buy organic or grow your own) and high levels of toxicity in our environment can really stress our digestive system. Herbal programs can be used every spring, but none of them give the excellent washing results that this program does.
