I’m an advocate for anything that helps detox and cleanse my body. My years of research revealed that a toxic environment and a unhealthy diet will lead to numerous diseases. So, this is my review of the book ‘Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse’ by Andreas Moritz. After seeing some of the pictures of the size and color of these gallstones I was a little intimidated to do the cleanse but, reading further into the book he explains how the liver and gallbladder can easily become full of gallstones blocking the production of bile and the function of your liver. The health risk involved in not cleansing out those gallstones can be more frightening than the cleanse itself.
I was a little skeptical whether this was going to work but after looking in the toilet and seeing hundreds of little green brown and black Stones floating on top that was evidence enough. Andreas said they can be stones as large as two inches! I’m glad I didn’t see any of those! Little did I know that gallstones are made in the liver and the liver can be congested with gallstones that slow and inhibit the liver functions.
Hardest working Organ
The liver is one of the hardest working organ and has over 500 different jobs to perform; manufacturing, processing and supplying vast amounts of nutrients to hundreds of trillions of cell inhabitants in the body. This fuel supply can be hindered when the liver is backed up and taxed with these gallstones contributing to an imbalance of certain hormones in the body. This can obviously cause problems and could be the reason for weight gain.
How can I tell if I have gallstones?
Andreas research with thousands of patients revealed that practically every illness including terminal diseases can be linked to a large number of gallstones in the liver. His claims when people eliminate the stones and introduce a healthy lifestyle habit they often recover from these diseases and illnesses. He claims that the symptoms of the diseases will gradually disappear and your health will return to normal.
How often should you do maintenance?
Andreas recommends that you cleanse your liver twice a year using this method. He also recommends a colonic irrigation prior to the liver cleanse to help remove the poisonous buildup of waste fermenting in your lower intestines. This build-up ferments and putrefies overtime making the body a breeding ground for parasites this toxicity that can pollute the blood and lymph thereby gradually poisoning the body.This is why a colon cleanse is recommended.
What you will need for this cleanse?
The cleanse requires 6 days of preparation followed by 16 to 20 hours on the day of the of actual cleanse. Some of the ingredients that are recommended will be.
- 32 oz container apple juice
- 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt dissolved in an 8-ounce glass of water
- 4 ounces of cold-pressed Virgin Olive Oil
- 2/3 glass of fresh grapefruit juice( pink is best) or fresh lemon and orange combined
- 2 x Pint jars with Lid
The apple juice is used because it has malic acid. Malic Acid softens the gallstones making their passage through the bile ducts smooth and easy. My drink of choice was apple cider vinegar, lemons, and grapefruit with water. The reason I chose apple cider vinegar over apple juice was the amount of sugar in apple juice. Four ounces of apple cider vinegar is the same as one liter apple juice BUT without the sugar.
You must consume 32 oz of apple juice per day or the drink I consumed every day for six days. This can be broken up throughout the day. This should be in addition to your normal water intake which would be six to eight glasses of water every day along with the 32 oz of apple juice. During the week of the cleanse your diet should be clean and with the avoidance of certain food and beverages like fried food, dairy products and animal sources. He also recommends a colon cleanse before and after you do the liver cleanse.
Time to clean
Make sure your Epsom salt has no additives (only ingredient should be magnesium sulfate). Add 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt to 24 oz of filtered water then divide the 24 oz into four 6 oz servings.
- 6 p.m. drink one of the 6-ounce servings of Epsom salt water. Warning! You may want to chase this with some water or some juice. It is disgusting!
- 8 p.m. drink your second serving of Epsom salt water.
- 10 p.m. take your ½ cup of grapefruit juice and a ½ cup of olive oil into a jar shake and drink. Laying down immediately flat on your back propping your head up for 20 minutes. This will help release the gallstones. Then go to sleep.When you feel the urge to have a bowel movement check and see if there are any small gallstones floating in your toilet.
- 6 a.m. Upon Awakening drink your third glass of Epsom salt water.
- 8 a.m. drink your 4th glass of Epsom salt water.
a.m. you can drink some fruit juice and eat some fresh fruit. One hour later you can eat regular food.
Throughout the day you will use the restroom quite frequently upon doing so check often for gallstones. To my amazement as the book suggest they are was small green gallstones. Word of caution: During the cleanse you may feel sick and also might have flu type symptoms.
