The Amazing Liver Cleanse - a Powerful Tool to Improve Your Health - by Andreas Moritz

Most people believe that gallstones can be found only in the gall bladder. This is a false assumption. Most gallstones are actually formed in the liver and only a few in the gall bladder. This statement can easily be verified by anyone who gives himself a liver cleanse, regardless of whether he is a layperson, a medical doctor, a scientist, and someone who no longer has a gall bladder and is believed to be free gallstones altogether.

An estimated 20% of the world’s population will develop gallstones in their gall bladder at some stage in their lives. This figure, however, does not account for the many more people who will develop gallstones in the liver. From my personal experience as a health practitioner with thousands of patients suffering all types of diseases, I can document that each one of them has had large amounts of gallstones in the liver. Surprisingly, only relatively few of them have had a history of gallstones in the gall bladder. Gallstones in the liver are, as will be seen in this book, the main obstacle to maintaining health, youthfulness, and vitality. They are indeed one of the major reasons why people fall ill and have difficulty in recuperation from an illness.

The failure to recognize gallstones in the liver maybe an important missing link in the field of medicine, both orthodox and complementary. By understanding how gallstones in the liver contribute to the development of almost every type of disease and by taking the steps of removing these obstructions, every person can discover for himself an easy method to restore health on a permanent basis. The implications of applying the liver cleanse for yourself or, if you are a health practitioner, for your patients, are both vast and rewarding. To have a clean liver is like having a clean start in life.

The liver is the major controlling agent of normal growth and health functioning of all body cells. Any malfunction, deficiency, or abnormal growth pattern of the cell is to a large extent due to an impaired liver performance. There is rarely a disease in the body that does not start in the liver.

All diseases or symptoms of ill health are causes by obstruction. If a blocked blood vessel no longer allows delivery of vital oxygen or nutrients to a group of cells, the cells will be forced to introduce emergency measures or specific survival tactics. Many of the cells will not survive the famine, others will learn to mutate and live off the other cells and toxic materials, which may turn them malignant or cancerous.

An obstruction of fluids in the body is directly and indirectly linked to an impaired liver performance and in particular to a blockage caused by gallstones both in the liver and in the gall bladder. The presence of stones in these organs greatly impairs the digestion of food, elimination of waste, and detoxification or harmful substances in the blood. By unblocking the liver and gall bladder, the body’s 60-100 trillion cells will be able to “breathe” more oxygen, receive more nutrients, eliminate their metabolic waste products more efficiently, and maintain perfect communication links with the nervous system, endocrine system and all other parts of the body.

Although almost every patient with a chronic illness has an excessively large number of gallstones in the liver (this can easily be verified by having a liver cleanse), unless there is a specific liver disease, this important organ is rarely considered a “culprit”. Since the majority of gallstones in the liver and gall bladder consist of the same “harmless” constituents as are contained in the liquid bile with cholesterol being their main ingredient, they are “invisible” to x-ray technologies. Stones in the liver do not show up as solid whereas some of the gallstones (20%) occurring in the gall bladder can be made up entirely of minerals, mainly calcium salts and bile pigments. Modern diagnostic tools can easily detect these hardened and relatively large stones but fail to recognize the softer and smaller ones in the liver. Only when there are excessive amounts of large stones in the liver can an ultrasound reveal a “fatty liver”. In such case, the ultrasound pictures show a liver that looks almost completely white (instead of dark). A fatty liver can have up to 6,000-8,000 stones before it succumbs to suffocation and ceases to function.

But even if the early stages of a fatty liver are recognized and diagnosed through ultrasound, this vital organ is hardly ever relieved of the heavy burden it has to “carry” by having accumulated hundreds and, in many cases, thousands of these hardened bile deposits which continuously block the liver’s bile ducts. In view of the effects the stones have on liver performance as a whole, it is irrelevant whether the stone consist of mainly thickened cholesterol or are mineralized and hard. Whether we call them gallstones, fat deposits or clots consisting of hardened bile, the net result is that they prevent bile from flowing through the bile ducts.

Bile is a green colored, alkaline fluid with many functions. Apart from helping the digestion of fat, calcium and protein, it is needed to maintain normal fat levels in the blood, to remove toxins from the liver, to help maintain proper acid/alkaline balance in the intestinal tracts, and to keep the colon from breeding harmful microbes. To maintain a strong and healthy digestive system and to feed the body the right amount of nutrients, the liver has to produce between 1 and 1.5 quarts (1.1…1.6 liters) of bile a day. Anything less than that (many people produce just about a cup full) is bound to cause problems with the digestion of food, elimination of waste and constant need for detoxifying the blood. Almost all health problems are a direct consequence of reduced or blocked bile production and inefficient bile transport.

The Liver Cleanse Recipe
Cleaning the liver and gall bladder from gallstones is one of the most important and powerful tools to improve your health. To remove gallstones you need the following things:

Malic Acid…………………..2- 500mg 4 x daily
Apple Juice…………………5 glasses (Organic no sugar added if possible) - Drink throughout the day
Epson salts…………………4 Tablespoons
Extra Virgin Olive Oil……… ½ Cup
(Cold press & pure)
Fresh Lemons………………Enough squeeze ¾ cup juice
Ginger Tea
Clear Organic Soup Broth
Can have protein shake for lunch and dinner.

Preparation
All day drink the apple juice (remember: the apple juice helps to soften the stones and makes the passage easier!)

1st Day: Stop all supplements, eat a huge breakfast. Take Malic Acid- (2) with breakfast, (2) with protein shake with lunch, (2) with protein shake for dinner, and (2) at bedtime.
6:00 PM – Epson salts – 1 cup water to 1 T. salt – OK to add Stevia and lemon juice if needed.
8:00 PM – Epson salts mixture – 1 cup water to 1 T. salt
9:00 PM – 2 cups of Ginger tea
10:00 PM – Olive oil and lemon juice **may be consumed in smaller batches if needed – blend really well.

2nd Day:
6:00 AM – Epson salts mixture – 1 cup water to 1 T. salt
-OK to add Stevia and/or lemon juice
8:00 AM – Epson Salts mixture – 1 cup water to 1 T. salt
-OK to add Stevia and/or lemon juice

**After drinking the olive oil mixture, lie down, this is necessary to help release stones. Turn off the light and lie flat on your back with your head on a pillow. Put your attention on your liver and visualize the mixture moving the stones out if the numerous bile ducts in your liver. Keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. This gives the stones a chance to move along the bile ducts. There will not be any pain because the Epson salts will keep the bile duct valves wide open. Go to sleep if you can. If at anytime during the night you feel the urge to have a bowel movement, do so. Check to see if there are already small gallstones (pea size or tan colored ones) floating in the toilet.

The Results You Can Expect
You will have a number a bowel movements in the form of diarrhea, consisting of gallstones, mixed first with food residue and then with water only. Most of the gallstones float in the toilet because they contain large amounts of cholesterol. You will see mostly green ones of all sizes and shapes, some are pea sized or smaller and others will be as big as 2-3 centimeters. There may be hundreds of stones coming out at once. Also watch out for tan colored and white ones. Some of the larger tan colored stones may sink with the stool because they are calcified and contain heaver toxic substances and only small amounts of cholesterol. All the green stones are as soft as putty, thanks to the apple juice.

You may also find a layer of white or tan colored scum or “foam” floating in the toilet. The foam consists of millions of tiny white sharp-edged cholesterol crystals, which can easily rupture small bile ducts; and they are equally important to get rid of.

Try to make a rough estimate of how many stones you have eliminated. To permanently cure bursitis, back pain, allergies or other health problems, and to prevent disease from arising you need to remove all the stones. This may require up to six or more cleanses which can be preformed at 2-3 weeks intervals (do not cleanse more frequently than that). If you cannot cleanse this often, you may take more time between the cleanses. The important thing to remember is that once you have started cleansing the liver; keep cleansing it until no more stones come out. Leaving if half clean for a long period of time (three or more months) can cause greater discomfort than not cleansing at all.

The liver as a whole will begin to function more efficiently soon after the first cleanse and you may notice sudden improvements, sometimes within a few hours. Pains will be less, energy will increase and clarity of mind will improve considerably.
However, within a few days, stones from the rear of the liver will have traveled “forward” towards the two main bile ducts exiting the liver, which may cause some of the previous symptoms of discomfort to return. In fact, you might feel discomfort because the recovery seems so short-lived, but all this shows, is that there are still stones left behind, ready to be removed with the next round of elimination. Nevertheless, the liver’s self repair and cleansing response will have increased significantly, adding a great deal of effectiveness to this all important organ of the body.
As long as there are still a few small stones moving from some of the thousands of small bile ducts towards the hundreds of large bile ducts, they may combine to form larger stones and produce such previously experienced symptoms as backache, headache, earache, digestive trouble, bloating, irritably, anger, ect., although these may be less sever than they were before. If a new cleanse no longer produces any stones, which usually happens after the sixth cleanse, your liver can be considered to be in excellent condition. Still it is recommended to repeat the liver cleanse every six months. Each cleanse will give a further boost to the liver and take care of any toxins that may have accumulated in the meanwhile. NEVER CLEANSE WHEN YOU ARE SUFFERING AN ACUTE ILLNESS. After the cleanse, be sure to watch out for dehydration. CONTINUE TO DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS!
