Here is one of the most important things I’ve ever done for my health. I’m not gonna lie – it’s rather unpleasant while you’re going through it, but the benefits far outweigh the temporary discomfort! I have noticed my garlic allergy subsiding after the cleanse, and I feel like I “flushed the engine”. One reason may be a little known fact: most toxins these days are fat soluble. The bile that our liver secretes and our gallbladder stores is designed to digest fats – meaning the toxins you ingest are also absorbed by the bile. About 95% of the bile in our body is recycled (see “enterohepatic circulation”). That’s right, the toxins (drugs, pesticides, etc.) may not be eliminated from your body, and instead re-circulated around your body over and over again. This cleanse flushes out the bile and forces your body to produce a new batch, thereby eliminating a huge toxic load. Of course, the secondary benefit (which most people think of as the primary benefit) is the passing of gallstones. You’ll see a bunch of green pea like balls floating around in the toilet. These clog the gallbladder and passing them will greatly improve digestion.
I try and perform this cleanse once a year. So stock up on tp, buy a new can of Febreeze and do your body a favor! Happy Pooping!
PS: Note that if you suspect you have gallstones you should check with your doctor before performing this cleanse. Although I’ve never personally heard of this happening, there is the risk of a large gallstone blocking a duct and causing a medical emergency.
Tim’s Gallbladder Cleanse Routine*
1 cup of olive oil
6-8 pink grapefruits
4 tablespoons of Epsom salts
Fat free food for breakfast, snack and lunch
Eat a NO FAT diet the whole day! If you question whether a food is completely fat free check the back label or go on to
http://www.calorieking.com and check the nutrition facts. Also, drink plenty of water until 2:00pm. Take no medicines, vitamins, pills,
etc. during the cleanse unless absolutely necessary. You can find Epsom salts at any grocery store.
2 cups of cooked oatmeal with brown sugar, honey or maple syrup on top (no butter)
4 egg whites with salt and pepper (no oil during cooking)
2 cups of homemade fruit salad (apple, orange, grapes, melon, berries, etc.)
Lunch at 2:00pm
3 cups of steamed veggies (cabbage, onion, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, asparagus)
1 can of kidney beans
1 baked sweet potato with salt (no butter!)
Don’t eat or drink after this time or you could get sick. Prepare for later after lunch. Squeeze 4 of the grapefruits and mix 4
heaping tablespoons of Epsom salts together. Shake until dissolved and put into the fridge. Squeeze the other 2 grapefruits and
store the juice in a separate container in the fridge.
Drink 1/3 of the grapefruit juice and Epsom salt mixture. If you need, rinse your mouth out with water or juice from the two additional grapefruits afterwards. (I’ve found that immediately after drinking the initial Epsom I can avoid the aftertaste by swishing around some “clean” grapefruit juice in my mouth.)
Drink another 1/3 cup of the grapefruit juice and Epsom salt mixture.
Get ready for bed.
Add ½ cup of olive oil to ½ of the plain grapefruit juice, shake vigorously and drink it.
Lie down immediately and go to bed. Very important- lie on your back for the whole night if possible, but especially for the first
half hour. Try not to move much or get up, and prop yourself up on the pillows a little.
Wake up and drink the final amount of the grapefruit and Epsom salts mixture.
Go back to bed if possible, or lie in bed on your back and read.
Mix another 1/2 cup olive oil with the last of the plain grapefruit juice, shake and drink.
Lie down for a 30-60 minutes, getting up to use the rest room only.
8:30am – 12:00pm
Poop. A lot.
Look in the toilet for floating things that look like green peas, those are the stones.
Feel free to move around if you’d like.
After the 8:00am dose wait about 2 hours before eating, but start drinking lots of water starting at 8:30am. You’ll want to prevent
dehydration from the diarrhea.
