Amazing Liver + Gallbladder Flush

Liver detox and gallbladder flushes have become very popular in recent years, and for good reason!

Using olive oil to successfully flush the gallbladder first appeared in the British Medical Journal in 1882 and 1885, and was likely used much earlier as a folk remedy.9,10 For millennia, Ayurveda has said that ghee with lemon juice is a successful protocol to detoxify the body and reset liver and gallbladder function.11

Today, one-quarter of women over 60 worldwide will develop gallstones,1 and cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) is the number one most common elective abdominal surgery in America today, with over 750,000 per year.Gallbladder disease has increased by 20% in the last three decades, costing America $6.2 billion a year in medical bills.2

I have been administering this liver and gallbladder flush in my practice for more than 30 years with great success. Until now, I have never publicly published this cleanse. I have always felt that, while it is a very effective protocol, it is not meant for anyone anytime.

To ensure best results and avoid potential side effects, there are a series of preparatory steps that I feel everyone should take before proceeding with the flush.

In this free eBook, I will guide you through the steps to prepare for a safe and effective liver and gallbladder bile flush.

  1. Most commonly in our society, excessive stress literally turns off the digestive-provoking parasympathetic nervous system and exhausts the emergency and degenerative sympathetic nervous system.5
  2. history of sluggish bowel function will allow toxins to be re-absorbed through the enteric cycle back to the liver, affecting bile production and flow.6
  1. Pesticides on our foods and environmental toxins kill intestinal microbes that manufacture the digestive enzymes we need.7,8
  2. However, the major and insidious cause of liver and gallbladder congestion is the diet of processed and refined foods that many have been consuming for the past 6 decades.
