Most people know they have a gallbladder but don't really understand what it does day in and day out. Here you will learn the function of the gallbladder, why so many people have them removed, and what you can do to flush this vital organ to maintain a high level of health and wellness.
The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ that lives directly under the liver. Its primary function is to collect and concentrate the bile that the body uses to digest fats. Problems associated with a low functioning gallbladder include:
- inflammation of the gallbladder and bile ducts
- muscular spasms and/or poor contraction of the gallbladder wall
- stones forming in the gallbladder and/or bile ducts
- obstruction to the free flow of bile
The good news is that gallbladder problems can be helped and often completely resolved. There is no need to panic and rush into surgery for gallbladder disease unless you are in severe acute pain or your doctor suspects that you have gallbladder cancer. According to a study published in The British Journal of General Practice, it was found that “having the gallbladder surgically removed (cholecystectomy) does not always relieve upper abdominal pain even in those with proven gallstones. After cholecystectomy, one-third of the patients saw their doctor again with the same pain they had suffered prior to the surgery. What a disappointing result for these patients. After 12 months most of the patients who had a cholecystectomy were pain-free, but so were 63% of the patients who had kept their gallstones.”
We like this Gallbladder Flush from Dr. Hulda Clark's website:
On the morning of the flush, eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal, fruit, fruit juice, bread, and preserves or honey (no butter or milk). This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones. Limit the amount you eat to the minimum you can get by on. You will get more stones. The earlier you stop eating, the better your results should be. In fact, stopping fat and protein the night before gets even better results.
2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink after 2 o'clock. If you break this rule, you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tablespoons in 3 cups of water and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings, ¾ cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only).
6:00 PM. Drink one serving (¾ cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterward or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil and grapefruit out to warm up.
8:00 PM. Repeat by drinking another ¾ cup of Epsom salts. You haven't eaten since two o'clock, but you won't feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.
9:45 PM. Pour ½ cup (measured) olive oil into a pint jar. Squeeze the grapefruit by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with a fork. You should have at least ½ cup. You may use lemons instead of grapefruit. Add this to the olive oil. Also, add Black Walnut Tincture. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh citrus juice does this).
Now visit the bathroom one or more times, even if it makes you late for your ten o'clock drink. Don't be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.
10:00 PM. Drink the potion you have mixed. Take 4 ornithine capsules with the first sips to make sure you will sleep through the night. Take 8 if you already suffer from insomnia. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. Take it all to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).
Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don't. The sooner you lie down, the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time. Don't clean up the kitchen. As soon as the drink is down, walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!). Go to sleep as you may fail to get stones out if you don't.
Next morning upon awakening, take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea, wait until it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don't take this potion before 6:00 am.
Two hours later, take your fourth (the last) dose of Epsom salts. You may go back to bed again.
After 2 more hours, you may eat. Start with fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper, you should feel recovered.
Alternative Schedule l: Omit the first Epsom salts dose at 6 p.m. Take only one dose, waiting until 8 p.m. Change nothing else. Many people still get stones with one less dose. If you do not, do the full course next time.
Alternative Schedule 2: After taking the first dose of Epsom salts in the morning, wait two hours and take a second dose of the oil mixture and go back to bed. After 4 more hours take another dose of Epsom salts. This schedule can increase the number of stones you remove.
How well did you do?
Expect diarrhea in the morning. Use a flashlight to look for gallstones in the toilet with the bowel movement. Look for the green kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones, not food residue. Only bile from the liver is pea green. The bowel movement sinks but gallstones float because of the cholesterol inside. Count them all roughly, whether tan or green. You will need to total 2000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies, bursitis, or upper back pain permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days, but as the stones from the rear travel forward, they give you the same symptoms again. You may repeat at two-week intervals. Never cleanse when you are [acutely] ill.
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 stones.
How safe is the liver cleanse? It is very safe. My opinion is based on over 500 cases, including many persons in their seventies and eighties. None went to the hospital; none even reported pain. However, it can make you feel sick for one or two days afterward, although, in every one of these cases, the maintenance parasite program had been neglected. This is why the instructions direct you to complete the parasite and kidney cleanse programs first.
If you do change these recipes, you might expect problems. The liver is quite sensitive to details. If you plan to make changes, be sure to seek the help of a therapist.
This procedure contradicts many modern medical viewpoints. Gallstones are thought to be formed in the gallbladder, not the liver. They are believed to be few, not thousands. They are not linked to pains other than gallbladder attacks. It is easy to understand why this is thought: by the time you have acute pain attacks, some stones in the gallbladder are big enough and sufficiently calcified to see on X-ray, and have caused inflammation there. When the gallbladder is removed, the acute attacks are gone, but bursitis and other pains and digestive problems remain.
The truth is self-evident. People who have had their gallbladder surgically removed still get plenty of green, bile-coated stones, and anyone who cares to dissect their stones can see that the concentric circles and crystals of cholesterol match textbook pictures of “gallstones” exactly.
