Gallbladder/Liver Cleanse

Liver/Gallbladder Cleanse

*Do not use this cleanse if the body has cirrhosis or hepatitis

Please be cautious with this cleanse.

Day 1.

Take herbal laxatives in the evening before bed. (Smooth Move Tea)

Day 2-4

100 drops of Ortho-Phos in a quart of high-quality (organic if possible) apple juice in the morning.

During these three days, you do not need to alter your diet. I would, however, eat healthily, why detoxify if you are putting toxins back in!

So in these three days, you are drinking 3 quarts of apple juice and 300 drops of Ortho-Phos (Link on the sidebar of this post)

On the evening of day 4, eat dinner early. Then about an hour before bed take

1 cup high-quality cold-pressed olive oil

1 cup coke

1 whole lemon(squeezed)

Blend these together and drink up. The coke helps to swallow the olive oil.

Immediately after you drink the olive oil mixture go to bed. Bring your knees to your chest and hold for a few minutes. Then lie on your right side for 30 min. This will cause liquid to go directly to your gallbladder and liver. The organs will spasm and throw off stones and toxins emptying the system of old bile and it will make new.

Take an herbal laxative after 30-45 minutes so that you will eliminate in the morning.

Consider doing a colon cleanse before and after this cleanse.

** A variation of this is Epson Salt.

After the days of apple juice. On the third day of the flush two hours after lunch dissolve two tablespoons of Epsom Salt in 3 oz. water, and drink. You may put it in orange juice.

The evening dose: 5 hours after lunch dissolve one TBSP Epsom Salt in 3 oz. of water and drink.

The next morning take 1 TBSP in 3 oz. water and drink.

Note: This cleanse is intended as an informational guide. This is a remedy meant to supplement and is in no way a substitute for professional medical care or treatment by a licensed doctor or professional. Please consult a qualified healthcare professional and do not treat if there are serious health issues.

Another Flush/Detox program is listed below.

Liver and Gallbladder Flush/Detox

To aid normal function of the liver and gallbladder it is advisable to use this detox/flush to restore health and vitality.

Follow these guidelines:

Step one.

Days 1 through day 7 at noon. Drink as much apple juice or cider as your appetite will permit. You may eat regular meals and any supplements and medications. Pure apple juice from a health food store is preferred, as there are no additives.

Step two.

At noon on the seventh day, eat a normal lunch.

Step three:

Three hours after lunch, take 2 TBSP. of Epson Salt dissolved in about one ounce of hot water. The taste may be hard to take, you may follow up with some citrus juice, preferably freshly squeezed.

Step four:

Two hours later repeat step three.

Step five:

You may have grapefruit juice, if you absolutely do not like grapefruit juice, you may have other citrus juice freshly squeezed for your evening meal.

Step six:

At bedtime, you may have one of the following:

  1. ½ cup refined olive oil followed by a small glass of grapefruit juice. Or
  2. ½ cup warm, unrefined olive oil blended with ½ cup fresh lemon juice.

***Note: Unrefined olive oil can be purchased from most health food stores. It is best with fresh juice, but if you must you can use bottled 100% juices.

Step seven:

After completing step six go immediately to bed and lie on your right side, with your right knee pulled up close to your chest for thirty minutes.

Step eight:

Day 8, in the morning, an hour before breakfast, take 2 TBSP Epson Salt dissolved in two ounces of hot water.

Step nine:

Normal diet throughout the day and all supplements and medications.

Step ten:

You’ll be spending a lot of time in the bathroom. You may find tiny gallstones in your stools that are light to dark green in color and shaped irregularly. This may vary in size. If there is a large number, repeat this detox in two weeks.

**Many have reported nausea when taking the olive oil/citrus juice, this should subside as it is time for bed. If you vomit, you may not want to repeat this procedure at this time. This is a rare occurrence. This detox flush for the gallbladder and liver stimulates these organs very well. It has helped many who have suffered from gallstones, backaches, nausea, fatty liver, etc.




Raise of hands, who’s Stressed?

Stressed? Raise your hand!

Alright, I had an ah ha moment this morning; I’m stressed, so I’ll raise my hand, because I am a person that seems to thrive and live daily on stress. Yes, not a wonderful thing to admit let along to or thrive on and  live my life in constant stress. But what if fear was the basis of this stress?

Questions of your Stress vs. your Fears

If stress is part of your life, it is time to ask yourself the questions of what causes me the most stress? And why? What am I really afraid of? What fears am I building this stress upon? It is really simple but we feel so complicated and often overwhelmed when we live this way. We can have our come from fear based, or we can have our life come from love and support. Which would you prefer? Knowing who we are, and where we come from can make your life flow a little easier, and knowing ourselves and our path here on the planet makes it a bit more wonderful living the day to day, and even give us a better and brighter future outcome. It is time to change our story, bring down our hands of stress, and empower ourselves from the core outward.

Some of the basics of stress can be to name a few are: financial, bills, my job, my boss, fellow employees, traffic, spouse, children, car problems, to much to do, not enough time…..What is your list? Write it down! Then  the next thing to do is list them in order of what is the most stressful in your life to the least.

  1. Finances
  2. Spouse/marriage
  3. Children
  4. Job
  5. Boss
  6. Parents
  7. Etc.

Then take each of those and sub categorize it.

For example: Financial

a. not earning enough,

b. difficulty paying bills, to many obligations, in debt.

c. etc.

Next step: What fears, beliefs and emotions come about with each on your list.

For example, Do you have a fear of never having enough? This is a basic fear. Or the fear that you are not good enough, this goes even a level deeper and the fear of not having enough is built on the good enough.

So, imagine all the stress that is built up in your life is built on fears and belief systems. Find out what yours are, and de-stress your life!

How would you live differently if you had less stress?

For me, I would probably worry about all my problems a lot less and focus on the inspiration that comes to me; think about that, act upon that inspiration!

Once you have identified some of the sources of your stress, the next step is to support your mind, body and soul to live in a more calm and happy state. When you change a few things you will notice that the things that used to stress you, won’t so much, and you will have a new frequency and vibrational level, and that means you won’t attract that anymore. Ah, doesn’t that sound good?

Support for Change:

  1. Do you need assistance in finding the core issues of fear and stress, then changing what no longer serves you? Please schedule an appointment with me, this is one of my favorite parts of the my job, to dig to find the answers. Sometimes we need the big toys to dig deep!
  2. Learn your trigger points. Be aware of your stress levels, and start paying attention!
  3. Start noticing when your are stressed. Ask yourself why, what is it. And what is under neath it.
  4. Nutrition: Eat well, and drink plenty of water. Also there are great supplements to help the body to de- stress.
  5. Movement: yes exercise if you have to call it that! Personally I like to walk, do Tai chi, and Q gong
  6. Get a massage! This is a great way to relieve stress and relax the body into a different vibration level.
  7. Essential Oils and Stones and Crystals:
  8. Daily gratitude and affirmations
  9. Read – Read for fun, read for insight and wisdom.
  10. Music – Calming and uplifting
  11. Beautiful spaces – go to the beach or the mountains; take time to ground with nature.
  12. Practice Mindfulness

Multiple symptoms? One simple answer!

Plagued with any of these symptoms? A combo of? You could have a mineral deficiency!

Stress*Anxiety*Insomnia*Irritability*Low energy*Chronic Fatigue*Weakness*Hormonal Imbalances*Headaches*Migraines*Nervousness*Abnormal heart rhythms*High blood pressure*Bone weakness*Pain*Facial Twitching*Acid Re-flux*Digestive Issues*Depression*Cystitis*Restless Leg*Muscle cramps*Muscle spasms

One answer – Magnesium!

Most people are magnesium deficient!  This mineral is of vital importance for numerous functions of the body because it regulates more than 300 enzymes, and is required in every cell. The lifestyles nowadays deal with a great deal of stress, and the body uses more minerals than most are able to consume through foods. This is a list of the most common symptoms which indicate that you should increase the levels of magnesium in the body:

Magnesium aids with:

Regulates levels of calcium and potassium

Magnesium’s role is to transport calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes. This helps normal heartbeats, blood pressure, muscle contractions, nerve impulses. Calcium is virtually useless without magnesium.

High Blood Pressure

Magnesium relaxes the blood vessels

 Acid Re-flux

The acid re flux or heartburn can often times be relieved by consuming magnesium.

Muscle cramps and pain

Magnesium deficiency can cause muscle cramps and body aches, this is a great mineral to relax the muscles.

Without magnesium the muscles would be in a constant state of contraction. Calcium works to contract the muscle, but magnesium is the relaxer!


Taking magnesium can help relax the mind and the body to calm anxieties. The hormones regulated by magnesium help to calm the brain and promote relaxation and is very good for the serotonin levels.

Headaches and Migraines

Magnesium helps to control headaches by releasing pain reducing hormones to reduce the vasoconstriction and constrictions of blood vessels. The consumption of dark chocolate rich in magnesium will help to relieve pain and tension from headaches. (Good reason for dark chocolate!)

Chocolate cravings

Since it lacks it, the body sends signals to crave for that food which contains the needed nutrients. Thus, the body craves for chocolate when it does not have magnesium at sufficient levels. The consumption of some dark chocolate provides 25% of the daily requirement of magnesium.


The relaxing properties of this beneficial mineral help digestion as well, so in the case of its deficiency, the person suffers from constipation due to the blocked waste removal. Magnesium relaxes the muscles within the digestive tract and neutralizes the acid in the stomach to help move stools through the intestines.


Use magnesium Glycinate for insomnia, helping the body to relax. It helps to quiet the racing mind, and calms the heart rate too.

Irregular Heartbeat

The heart uses the highest amount of magnesium, relaxing the heart muscles, and its deficiency leads to arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. Working with calcium it supports good blood pressure and helps to prevent hypertension too!

Energy Enhancer!

To regulate your energy levels and get moving! Magnesium activates the ATP in your body! That is pure energy!

Great ways to get your magnesium!


Cocoa is a rich source of antioxidants. And It is abundant in magnesium, potassium, calcium, copper, phosphorus, and zinc. (Yeah, chocolate!)

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc and magnesium. But they also have potent anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties.

Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts contain amazing amounts of magnesium, vitamin B, E, and monounsaturated fatty acids. Eating these often can bring up magnesium levels nicely.


Cashews are high in antioxidants, which prevent stress and oxidative damage, magnesium, as well as copper, which helps the production of melanin.

Not all magnesium is the same!

Aspartate: Cellular health

Glycinate: This is great for relaxing, for nerve pain, leaky gut and has a good absorption

Chloride: Detoxing, Kidneys and Metabolism, Nourishes and soothes skin

Citrate: This kind is generally not recommended for it can cause iron dysregulation and health issues

Malate: Good for ATP and cellular energy

Oxide: Only take this in small doses. Good for a laxative

Sulfate:  Best in the bath (Epson Salts) Good for detoxing and muscle relaxing

*Look at supporting the adrenal glands when magnesium deficient, poor adrenal function encourages the body to expel the magnesium as waste and the body is unable to use and absorb it.

**Recommended dose of magnesium is 500-1000 mg. along with Vitamin C, Calcium and Vitamin D. Best time to take it – before you go to bed at night!

***Be well – Be Happy!!!

Dry Skin Brushing

skinThe body has five major paths of elimination; the colon, kidneys, liver, lungs, and skin. Of these, our skin is the largest elimination organ, which is sometimes referred to as the “third kidney” (the second being our lungs). In fact, up to one third of all body impurities are excreted through the skin. It releases a pound of waste each day and will be the first organ to show symptoms of imbalance or toxicity. If your skin cannot efficiently release toxins you may experience rashes, acne, hives, itchiness, body odor, or even eczema and psoriasis.
Dry skin brushing is an important therapy you can add to your detox program. Daily dry friction brushing is far more cleansing and eliminates more waste material than any soap could, another added benefit is that the skin is not robbed of its natural oils needed to keep it from becoming too dry. Dry skin brushing tones the skin, improves surface circulation to keep pores open, encouraging the bodies discharge of metabolic wastes. It aids in relieving skin conditions such as acne, hives body odor, eczema and more. More importantly it helps your lymphatic system to rid itself of toxins that collect in the lymph glands. Altogether helping your skin to look and feel healthier and more resilient.
How dry skin brushing will benefit you:

bath brush
• Tightens skin
• Regulates and increases blood circulation and lymph flow
• Revitalizes and increases your skins ability to eliminate toxins out of the system
• Rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin
• Contributes to healthier muscle tone and better distribution of fat deposits (yes, with continued use it can break down cellulite)
• Gently removes dead layers of skin and other impurities (keeps pores open)
• Stimulates the hormone and oil producing glands responsible for keeping your skin looking and feeling young, smooth and strong
• Helps in digestion
• Strengthens immune system

How to choose your brush
Choose a dry skin brush that has natural fiber bristles and a long handle for reaching all of your back. The bristles may feel to firm at first, but your skin will adjust to this over time. If you have very sensitive skin, you may want to start with a softer brush or a dry towel.
How to “dry skin brush”
Dry skin brushing means brushing the skin without the use of water or soaps. Use a separate brush for face and body. Brush before showering or bathing at least once per day twice if possible.
When dry brushing the body, brush the limbs with an upward movement. Every brush motion should be directed towards the heart. Start by brushing skin gently until it becomes conditioned. Avoid brushing the parts of your body that are irritated, damaged or infected. The scalp should also be brushed. It can stimulate hair growth by increasing blood circulation and will keep the scalp clean from dandruff, stale oils, etc.
• Lighter strokes over and around breasts, and do NOT brush the nipples.
• Brush over each part of your body several times vigorously.
• Always brush towards your heart
Start with the soles of your feet first, because the nerve endings there affect your whole body. Next brush your ankles, calves and thighs. Then brush across your stomach with circular counter clockwise strokes. Then onto your buttocks and lastly brush your hands and arms.

For the face, start by washing with a gentle cleanser, then dry with a towel. Start brushing using gentle upward movements from the center to the temples on the forehead then work down over the eyes, along the nose. Next make gentle counter clockwise movements on the right cheek, and clockwise on the left, always moving along the cheek muscles Be careful never to stretch the skin. Move down to the chin, the ears and finally the neck, using a firm, brisk rotary motion. If your face is too sensitive to use a dry brush, use a loofah or a special facial brush instead. Smooth upward strokes lift the muscles of the face instead of dragging them down. We don’t need to give gravity any extra help! Your facial brushing strokes should move up the neck and along the contour of the face.

After you have brushed the entire body then take a warm bath or shower which should be followed by a cool rinse at the end to invigorate blood circulation and stimulate surface warmth.

During the first couple of months be extra gentle while brushing! The sensation should be pleasantly stimulating. Stop immediately if it doesn’t feel good and increase the brushing intensity more gradually.

At first, the whole procedure should not last more than 30 seconds. Gradually increase the time to one, two and finally, three minutes.
Cleaning your brush
Keeping your brush clean is important; you need to wash out all of the dead skin cells and debris. Wash your dry skin brush with non-toxic soap every two weeks or so. Dry it in the sun or a warm place.
Being Consistent is the key
Dry skin brushing stimulates and invigorates the entire body. When done consistently (3-5 minutes morning and night), it will drastically improve the look of your skin and give an overall feeling of well being.
