Getting ready to do a Liver/ Gallbladder flush?
Really? Are you sure? Let’s take a look.
Hi everyone, my name is Mary Taylor and I am a Colonic Hydrotherapist and Live Cell Analyst. I am committed to your health and I believe that it is crucial that before one embarks on any cleansing program, one must have a therapist who is extremely knowledgeable in this area and is prepared to support and guide their client through the entire program – from beginning to end. Many times, I will reach out and lean on my colleagues, friends and other experts in an effort to learn more and get the support I need to help my clients.
In my quest for good health, I wanted to do a Liver/Gallbladder flush. Every time I started one, I found every excuse in the book to start and not finish it. I attempted it three times! Looking back, I think I was nervous and unsure because I didn’t know what to expect or how I would feel. I heard so many stories of people passing huge hard rocks and slimy green things that to be perfectly honest with you, seeing that did not appeal to me very much.
It wasn’t until my good friend David Barrett of “Harmonious Development,” (a medical missionary), got me on a 30-day all-juice cleanse last year and later educated me on the benefits of doing a Liver/Gallbladder flush that I really started to pay attention and learn why it’s so important to do this. When I was finally ready, I sucked it up, followed David’s protocol and I was off to the races – and spent my entire first night on the toilet! REALLY! LOL! Being a colonic hydrotherapist, I thought I was immune and didn’t need to do a colonic because for the most part I told myself, I eat well, I drink lots of water and thought I was “clean.” Hahahahaha! Yup, I was clean alright. Boy was I full-of-it! Who was I kidding? Oh, so that’s why I spent the entire first night on the toilet! David told me to do a colonic BEFORE I started the protocol. Oh boy! Well, I sure heeded his words after that and followed instructions with two more colonics after the protocol and there it was; more “stuff” and lots more green stones. That only proves that we all need someone that we can count on for guidance and support when we go through any cleanse and in particular this one. So I’m here to support you in any way as you go through your own journey to better health. Here we go…
What is a Liver/Gallbladder flush?
A liver and gallbladder flush is designed to flush out toxins and gallstones from your liver and gallbladder respectively. There should be a release of greenish colored stones in this process.
The use of apple juice or cranberry juice is recommended because they contain malic acid. The malic acid softens the stones.
Epsom salts (Magnesium Sulphate) is used to dilate or widen the bile ducts. This makes it easy for any stones to pass. The salts also clear out waste that may obstruct the release of stones.
Colon Hydrotherapy is used to a) clean out the colon before the flush and b) clean out the stones that land in the colon. Stones are not easily removed without the help of colonics.
Why do a Liver/Gallbladder Flush?
Your liver does so much work that it can get bogged down. When it does symptoms start to manifest. By helping your body release the build-up of unnecessary and unhealthy materials, you can help your Liver/Gallbladder function at its best! These built up toxins can include gallstones, toxic waste, and cholesterol deposits to name a few. If you are wondering if it is right for you, you can ask yourself if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms.
– Low energy/ Chronic exhaustion
– Allergies and Hay fever
– Periodic pain below the right side of the rib cage
– Tension in the back of the shoulder near the neck
– Bitter taste in the mouth
– Chest pain
Is it complicated to do?
It will cost you only a few dollars for apple juice, olive oil and Epsom salts. Along with a series of three Colon Hydrotherapy sessions, you are good-to-go! It very reasonable financially and only takes one week from start to finish without interfering in a 9-5 Monday to Friday job. Just set aside one weekend to do NOTHING! Not only can you clean out one of your most important organs – the Liver, and its little buddy, the gallbladder, it’s simple to do. If you work Monday to Friday, you can start drinking the apple juice on Sunday and by Friday afternoon, you’re ready to get started with your first colonic and then do the Epsom salts at 6 p.m. and again on Sunday morning. Just don’t make any plans for that weekend as you should just rest. You’ll be ready for your second colonic on Sunday afternoon/evening and your last one on the following Wednesday. It’s a good thing I sometimes work on evenings and weekends! LOL!
Unless you have a perfectly healthy liver/gallbladder, you will see the green stones released. You should continue this protocol once a month until you don’t see any more stones. Then you are good go! I recommend you do this protocol once a year as part of your regular stay-healthy-routine.
Why should you do Colonics during this flush?
Stones are eliminated through the Colon. As long as the elimination pathway is clear, then it will be safe to release them. You don’t want them to get lodged in the colon.
It is highly recommended you do a series of three colonics on Day 6, 8 and again on Day 10 of the flush.
An Important Point on Safety, Colon Hydrotherapy and the Cleanse:
Some interesting information on Liver Flushes can be found from so many sources, we chose one of the most reputable and well-known professionals on the topic.
We are going to take the opportunity to introduce you to Andreas Moritz. A liver/gallbladder cleanse could not be complete without this man. He is the author of the book “Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush”. He describes why colonics provide the base for a safe liver/gallbladder flush…
“It is extremely important to remove any stones that remain in the colon which typically happens to most people to avoid toxemia. So it is absolutely essential to make sure that you can do colonics before and after each liver flush. Otherwise, I highly recommend, don’t do it, don’t attempt liver flushes because it can be very risky for your health. I have seen many side effects arising from not cleaning out the colon afterwards.” – Andreas Mortiz
One should also look into doing a 30-day colon cleanse kit prior to starting the Liver Flush to ensure your colon is squeaky clean, but this doesn’t mean you can forfeit the two colonics at the end of the Flush.
Can you do a Liver/Gallbladder Flush even if you had your gallbladder removed?
It is suggested by Andreas Moritz that even if your gallbladder has already been removed, you can still do liver flushes. In fact, he states, “people without a gallbladder tend to have many more stones in their liver than those who still have a gallbladder. Intrahepatic stones hinder the liver in removing toxins and waste products from the blood, which can lead to an overload of toxins in the body’s connective and fat tissues. This can lead to lymphatic congestion and weight gain – a protective measure taken by the body to temporarily keep toxins from doing harm – and many other conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
When you do your first liver flush, you may not pass many stones right away because your liver’s bile ducts tend to be more blocked than average. It may take 1-2 liver flushes to start softening and releasing these more compacted obstructions. Still, many people without a gallbladder start releasing quite a few stones right from the beginning.
If stones don’t come out as readily or you don’t pass more than about 50 stones, before you flush again, you may extend the preparation period by at least 6 days, making it 12-14 days long. This will make it a lot easier for the liver to release the stones. In this case, you may alternate between the different options, such as apple juice, sour cherry juice, malic acid, Gold Coin Grass, etc.
Note: Although I rarely suggest taking supplements, as a general recommendation, you may wish to consider taking a bile supplement. Most bile supplements contain ox bile. This is the reason for it: without a gallbladder you can never again have the right amount and viscosity of bile required for the proper digestion of food. If you develop symptoms of diarrhea, lower the dosage or discontinue it and resume at a lower dosage once the diarrhea has subsided. Consult with your health practitioner about which product may be the most suitable for you. Doctors are supposed to recommend a bile supplement to their patients after surgical removal of their gallbladder, but they rarely do.”

A Simple Liver/Gallbladder Flush Procedure
(This 9-day protocol borrowed from Dr. Hulda Clark and Harmonious Development)
If you see stones during this cleanse and during the colonics, you should repeat this once a month until you don’t see any more stones.
Please consider doing a colon cleanse in preparation for this flush to help ensure the safe passage of stones and prevent auto intoxication.

Vitality Source Mission Statement
“Proper Colon Therapy should consist of two parts – cleansing and building. It is crucial that before one embarks on such an intense program one must have a Therapist who is extremely knowledgeable in this area and is prepared to support and guide their client through the entire program – from beginning to end. Just because one owns a hammer does not mean that they are a carpenter! To cleanse without having the proper knowledge of rejuvenating the systems can, and will, leave the body in a weakened state. Thus, the role of the Therapist is a crucial one! They are a teacher – to teach a new language called HEALTH!”
Disclaimer: Most importantly we want to make sure you are safe!
Consult with your healthcare practitioner before doing any type of cleanse. Again, it is recommended that you do a series of three colon hydrotherapy sessions before and after the flush.
