Perhaps this is the first time you’ve heard about a liver cleanse and gallbladder flush? It is basically using certain natural ingredients to keep our liver and gallbladder always free of harmful toxins to make it function at optimum levels.

A Liver Cleanse and Gallbladder Flush is not really a complicated process, but some people wonder why we need to do one sometimes.

The reasons are varied – and sometimes, it may not be an immediate concern for all of us. But let me tell you why it helps our body to go through one occasionally.

Liver and Gallbladder – Our Body’s Blood Cleansers

Our liver has the important function of screening our blood for toxins, bacteria, viruses and other harmful chemicals, drugs, and alcohol which need to be excreted by our body regularly. A non-functioning liver or one which is not operating at optimum levels has the problems of not being able to produce enough bile to aid in digestion, help the body fight infection, generate important proteins and enzymes, manufacture and regulate our hormones, and get rid of wastes from the blood.

On the other hand, our gallbladder is where the liver deposits about 1-1.5 quarts of bile every day for storage. This bile is used for digesting all fats we take in our body. The gallbladder also sends those fats (from meats and other fatty food) to the small intestines every day for excretion.

However, it is possible that the gallbladder can become blocked by stones and other toxins. Therefore, it is important to cleanse both the liver and gallbladder occasionally of toxins so it can perform its most important functions for the body.

However, we would recommend first that you consult your doctor before you embark on a Gallbladder Flush and Liver Cleanse, just to be sure that there will be no adverse effects happening to you, especially when you are under medication or preparing for a major lifestyle change.

  • Chest pain (angina)
  • Unusual colored stool

The Gallbladder Flush and Liver Cleanse

Here is the recipe for the Gallbladder Flush and Liver Cleanse. I suggest also that you drink organic apple juice at least 2-3 days before you conduct your liver cleanse. Apple juice is known to contain malic acid which facilitates in softening and dissolving gallstones for an easier liver cleanse.


  • 3 cups of Organic Apple juice
  • 4 Tablespoons (tbsp.) of Epsom Salts
  • 1/2 Cup Unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 3 lemons or 1 big grapefruit (if available)

Some Preliminary Instructions

  • About 4-5 days before your liver flush, eat as much apples or apple juice as you can have for an effective cleanse.
  • Ideally, schedule your cleanse on a Saturday so you can rest the whole day the next day. Don’t take any medicines, pills or vitamins as they can interfere with your liver cleanse. That includes also the herbal remedies and treatments you have as well.
  • Eat fruit, fruit juice, cooked cereal, preserves, honey and bread for your breakfast (no butter or milk please!). This kind of breakfast enables the bile to build up inside of you and put pressure on the liver, thus pushing out the offending stones.

The Liver Cleanse Itself

0200 hrs.  No eating after 2 pm. Any eating might make you really ill later.  Mix 4 tbsp. of Epsom salts in 3 cups of fresh apple juice. Pour into a jar, then refrigerate to taste better. This makes up 4 servings (3/4ths cup) of the concoction.

 1800 hrs.  Drink one serving of the 3/4ths cup ice cold apple juice with the Epsom salts. You can add 1/8th tsp. of Vitamin C in powdered form to make it taste better.You may slosh around some water in your mouth to take out the taste of the concoction. At this time, get the coconut oil (hopefully unrefined) and the lemons or grapefruit to warm them up.

2000 hrs. Drink the 2nd serving of 3/4 cup of Epsom salts. You won’t feel hungry even though your last meal could have been at 2 pm or earlier. Do all the things you need to do.

2145 hrs.  Pour 1/2 cup of unrefined coconut oil into the jar. Squeeze all 3 lemons or grapefruit into the mix, taking care no pulp is included. There should be at least ½ to 3/4th cup of mixture inside the jar – the extra virgin coconut oil and the juices. Close the lid, then shake hard until fully liquid. Have a bathroom break, making sure that you’re not late for the 10 pm drink.

2200 hrs. Drink the mixture, using a straw if it makes it easier for you. Try to drink everything in 5  minutes (15 minutes if it’s an elderly person). Lie down on your bed as soon as you finish drinking. This is very important to follow. Don’t bother to brush your teeth or do anything else like what you do before bed. Just lie down ASAP! Try not to move at all and try to sleep.

Morning After Instructions

Drink your 3rd serving of Epsom salts with the drink. Do not drink this before 6 in the morning. Go to sleep again.

Two hours later, drink the last dose of Epsom salts. You can eat food after two hours but not solid food, just liquids. Then you can follow that up with more solid food.

Important Note:  All throughout this process, you will be making several trips to the toilet to naturally pass whatever stones or excrement that will be induced by the drink that you have taken in. Once everything is out, you will feel like a new man – or woman.
