Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush
Today I share the process of healing my liver gallbladder using the method by Andreas Moritz. We have completed ten liver flushes in 12 months.
After a long bout of pain in my abdomen, I was diagnosed with gallstones. It was a shock but also a relief to finally discover what the pain was about…or at least part of it. I was having many other issues that was unfamiliar with and unable to identify. I began to seek natural cures rather than scheduling the usual further tests or gallbladder removal surgery. I believe our bodies were meant to have the organs for a purpose and I also believe we can heal these organs when they are in distress. It is hard for me to believe how the average person will know that when they get a cut on their arm, the skin will regenerate and heal, but when something goes on internally they cannot see, they lose all faith in healing and run to alopathic medicine to treat, medicate and remove rather than support natural healing.
I am naturally aligned with my guides, I listen to my gut and follow my instincts. After a long talk with god and deciding what I wanted to create my life to be, I was led to the person who showed me the work of Andreas Moritz. After reading Andreas’ book, “The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush,” I knew I was about to embark on a new phase of health and healing for my life.

Even though I had been vegetarian for 20 years and used herbs, teas, juicing and other healing elements, I had one issue that I had not dealt with. For decades, I used food for emotional comfort, I didn’t chew my food properly and I ate too much, too fast.
It doesn’t matter how good the food is we eat. If we eat too fast and do not properly begin digestion in the mouth, the system will eventually begin to malfunction, create stones, feed parasites and breakdown good gut flora. I created all of it. But even with proper chewing, just a lifetime of eating cooked food, alcohol and environmental poisons will naturally cause the same stones and other health issues.
The Most Common Causes of Gallstones
Bile is naturally composed of bile salts, cholesterol, bilirubin (bile pigment), water and a few other substances. When the chemical composition of bile is constantly disrupted, gallstone formation is an inevitable outcome. Here are the main culprits stemming from our day-to-day lives that change the chemical composition of bile and causes gallstones to form in the liver:
• Excessive alcohol consumption
• Excessive animal protein consumption
• Toxic, hydrogenated oils, plastic fats such as margarine, fake butter, etc. found in our food
• Highly heated processed foods
• Medication and over-the-counter drugs
• Birth control
• Recreational drugs
• Smoking • Exposure to environmental toxins and heavy metals, namely fluoride and copper
• Yo-yo dieting
• Rapid weight loss
• Eating before the prior meal is digested
• Eating at night, when digestion is weakest
• Lack of sleep
In his book, “Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation,” Andreas Moritz claims that gallstones in the liver may be the main impediment to acquiring and maintaining good health, youthfulness, and vitality. He states, “Gallstones in the liver may, indeed, be one of the major reasons people become ill and have difficulty recuperating from illness.” This may come as a surprise to many of you since mainstream medicine has us believing that gallstones only form in the gallbladder, with no reference what so ever to gallstone formation in the liver. It may be more surprising in fact, when you learn that the majority of gallstones form in the liver and relatively few occur in the gallbladder.
It happened to me. My digestion stopped, my elimination stopped and I was suffering from a strange variety of nerve pain and stiffness. After studying the attributes of creating a healthy liver and gut in depth and completing eight flushes, I have successfully turned the entire process around. I believe in natural healing and I know I only had to give my body some support and the liver flush was the kick start to the entire process. If our liver begins to plug up, the entire system begins to break down. The good news is the liver regenerates very quickly! In an article found in the archives of the New York Times, a Harvard study stated “The liver has a greater capacity to regenerate after severe loss than any other organ in humans or mammals. In animal experiments, almost three-quarters of the liver can be removed and the organ will quickly grow back to normal size.”
That being said, once the liver begins to heal, everything else gets a radical kick-start to healing. But if you never flush out them stones, your liver may end up on Google Images as an example of how badly a liver/gallbladder can be congested with them.
In our eight month journey to healing and recovery, we added a lengthy study program to our health education. Besides studying proper liver cleansing and herbs, we read several books, listened to podcasts, lectures and practiced methods related to: herbs and foods that heal the gut – maintaining proper Ph levels in the body – formulas for proper stool formation – how to perform a variety of healing enemas – the effect of gluten on the gut and gluten related auto-immune disease – the need for healthy fats – dangers of low fat diets and more. I will share personal experiences related to these subjects in future blogs. Yes, we have become masters at enemas!
On the very first flush, we eliminated several hundred small stones. By the second and third flush, the stones were getting larger, and on the forth flush, I eliminated several hundred stones, many as large as one inch. The fifth flush, my stones were getting fewer, but Dung was still flushing hundreds of small and medium ones. By the sixth flush, I had only a small handful of stones. I did, however, flush out a large dead parasite and a dead critter that was unexplainable. It was an odd translucent body with a darker interior with arms all over the outside of it. Almost like some type of octopus. Immediately after flushing these two critters, my intestines felt better. Since then, I flushed only a few stones. My elimination is steadily getting back to normal and the pain has shifted from deep gallbladder and gut pain to what now feels like a faint, dull intestinal ache. During the eighth flush, my lovely Dung had the largest harvest ever, several stones equaling almost one inch! These are her stones below.
8th flush inspired by the Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush/Andreas Moritz
We performed the flush both using the straight apple juice method and the malic acid method with supplements. In both cases, we had successful flushes. We chose to continue the malic acid method because we got tired of drinking so much apple juice.
Inspired by the book, “The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush” by Andreas Moritz
We suggest you read the book before starting your first flush!
Here is a basic outline for the flush
Anyone pursuing this flush will have good intuition with their body. Cleansing organs of the body has been done for centuries. However, in the western culture, there is overuse of prescription drugs by many people, which tends to destabilize the body. Caution should be used by anyone uneducated in natural human function. If so, it is recommended that you be supervised for this flush by a qualified natural health care provider.
The information provided is information you can find by searching liver flush. It is not a substitute for professional care. If you have or suspect you may have a health problem, you should consult your gut instinct, research your symptoms and natural remedies on-line, and find support from a qualified natural health care provider.
WHAT YOU NEED TO COMPLETE THIS FLUSH
7 days of access to healthy food and your liver/flush fluids you will be drinking throughout the day.
The 6th day of the flush you will need to be at home near a bathroom from 6pm on.
The 7th day you will need to be home the majority of the day, access to a toilet and rest.
32 oz. organic, raw, unrefined apple juice per/day, or, for those who do not want to drink the apple juice, use 6 teaspoons of Malic Acid: 1 tsp per day in 32 oz. of water, or, 4 oz. organic cranberry juice mixed with 4 oz. water, four times per day, or, another alternative is apple cider vinegar: mix 1 to 2 tablespoons in 8 oz. water, four times per day. (Malic acid is the ingredient in apples and cranberries that actually softens the gall stones and liver stones and makes it possible to pass them, they will exit through the rectum and this process is painless. Malic acid can be found on the internet via Amazon.com: LD Carlson food grade malic acid 1 lb. = $4 – $7)
1 large jar with a lid (12 to 24 ounce will do)
4 tablespoons of Epsom salts, food grade
4 oz. of organic, cold pressed Olive Oil
6 oz. freshly squeezed organic pink grapefruit juice or lemon/orange juice
Since the flush is depleting, the following supplements are recommended and designed to support liver flush:
1 bottle of Premier Research Labs Gallbladder Nano
1 bottle of Premier Research Labs Gallbladder BilliVen
(These two products can be found on the internet or at Miller Medical & Wellness Center in Agoura, California: 818.706-9690)
The flush can be done without these supplements, however, be sure to get adequate nutrients with a variety of ORGANIC fresh vegetable juicing, especially green veggies, parsley and dandelion.
1 enema kit + knowledge of proper coffee enema administration
Here is a good video to help
So let’s get started!
You will begin this flush by avoiding high fat content foods for 6 days (animal foods, dairy, eggs, nuts, oils, coffee, alcohol, high sugar foods are all to be avoided). Avoiding these foods helps rest the liver. Steamed vegetables and rice, quinoa, salads and juices are a good option. Everyday you will wake up and make: 1 teaspoon of Malic Acid (or chosen alternative, see above) 2 teaspoons of Gallbladder Nano in 32 ounces of water. Gallbladder Nano is a nanonized form of b vitamins and herbs, they support liver function and biliary cleansing. This Nano is an extremely high quality supplement that will also replenish those nutrients that are depleted through the flush. YES, THIS FLUSH IS DEPLETING. Which is why we encourage added nutritional supplementation. You can add lemon juice, Stevia or Apple Juice for flavor. You will sip this concoction throughout your day in addition to whatever water you normally drink. The Malic Acid is sour and it’s also a type of acid that can make your teeth feel funny and also make your throat scratchy, it’s normal. You can rinse your mouth out with water if it helps. If using the supplements: You will also take 4 Gallbladder BilliVen Capsules 3 x a day. The Complex helps dilate the bile ducts of the gallbladder and liver as well as encourages healthy bile flow. These supplements will support your body as well as ensure a smooth successful flush.
For best results, administer 3 coffee enemas sometime during the first 5 days. The palmitic acid in the coffee encourages the dumping of toxins from the liver into the colon and prepares the body for the flush.
On the 6th day
Drink all 32 oz. of your Malic Acid cocktail before 1:30pm. Do not eat ANYTHING after 1:30pm drink only water. I personally fast the 6th day, which is not recommended if you tend to have low blood sugar, otherwise eat a light breakfast. Your malic acid concoction and water is a good start to the day. At 6pm drink 6 oz. of pure water with 1 tablespoon of dissolved Epsom salts quickly. I personally use a fresh slice of lime as a chaser. At 8pm drink your second serving of Epsom salt water. At 9:45pm squeeze your grapefruit or Lemon/ Orange into a jar (6 ounces of juice), pour your olive oil (4 ounces) into the juice, place the lid on it. You may have started to have bowel movements by now, if you have not, you can administer a pink salt or water enema to induce bowel movements although this is not mandatory. At 10pm stand by your bed and shake the juice/oil mixture and drink it quickly. Lie down immediately!! Perhaps with a warm castor oil pack on your liver area. Try and sleep, it’s fine to visit the bathroom throughout the night. Set your clock for 6am.
On the 7th day
At 6am wake up and have your 3rd delicious 6 oz. glass of Epsom salt water. A coffee enema is highly recommended at this point, lie down until 8am and have your fourth and final glass of Epsom salt water. One more coffee enema is recommended before you eat a light meal at 10:30am. I personally recommend vegetable juicing and/or pureed vegetable soups and probiotics through the day.
A successful flush happens when sticking to the instructions and having 3 coffee enemas the 7th day. It is highly recommended to have a colon hydrotherapy the 8th and or 9th day. Because this flush is depleting it is also recommended to finish the Gallbladder supplements and to re-mineralize the day of the flush with extra vegetable juicing, and lots of water. The flush is discouraged if you are feeling sick, if you are in a high stress time of your life and if you are having any pain or problems defecating. This flush is not only a physical release, we tend to store fear, anger and guilt in our liver/gallbladder, when you are extremely stressed and upset and you attempt a flush, your results can be hindered because of this. You CAN flush if you are menstruating.
What you might expect during your flush experience
Some people feel the stones actually leaving the gallbladder, which is under the right side of the rib cage. Some people feel a dull ache under their rib cage during and after a cleanse. Some people feel exhausted the next day, and some people feel more energy than they ever have in their lives.
Anyone choosing to do a liver/gallbladder flush does so at their own risk. Please understand that although the chance is one in many thousand, it has occurred where an abnormally large and calcified stone became trapped in a bile duct. This will cause extreme pain and possible surgery to remove the stone. If this happens to occur during a flush, many people take a couple extra tablespoons of Epsom salts to further dilate the bile ducts to move the stone through, and can also take more olive oil.
Herbs That Promote Liver Cleansing
1. Organic Chicory Root
Organic chicory root has a long history of assisting with liver problems, extending back to the ancient Romans and Egyptians who used this herb to help cleanse the blood. In more recent times, roasted Chicory root has served as a natural, caffeine-free coffee alternative.
2. Organic Dandelion Leaf
Dandelion Leaf helps promote bile excretion from the liver. As such, the body can more efficiently process foods and liquids while purging harmful toxins. In addition, improved bile flow makes it possible for the body to better metabolize fat, which helps optimize the body’s cholesterol levels.
Dandelion Leaf is also effective at stimulating a sluggish gallbladder, which is responsible for storing and excreting bile as the body needs it. As such, this natural substance is effective at promoting blood purity which helps reduce the burden placed on the liver to filter out toxins.
3. Organic Dandelion Root
You may consider dandelions as a weed, but the root has been used for many years to aid the body in purifying the blood and remedying liver problems. For people suffering from excess water in the liver due to health problems, dandelion root might help remove the water and improve overall liver function.
4. Organic Greater Celandine
Celandine is often used to assist with liver and gallbladder cleansing programs. Why? This valuable herb helps prevent the accumulation of foreign particles in the liver.
5. Organic Milk Thistle Seed
A number of studies suggest Milk Thistle Seed supports optimal liver function. For example, Milk Thistle Seed’s can promote the liver’s ability to regenerate new tissue after damage occurs. Milk Thistle Seed even shows promise in stimulating the liver to produce additional bile for improved digestive function.
6. Organic Peppermint Leaf
Organic Peppermint Leaf helps to improve the flow of bile from your liver to the gallbladder. The volatile oil found in Peppermint (a hybrid of watermint and spearmint) also aids with the overall digestive process. Peppermint helps keep your liver in proper working order.
7. Organic Turmeric
Offering strong antioxidant effects, Organic Turmeric helps remove toxins from the body. As a result of this antioxidant effect, your liver does not have to work as hard to filter blood and keep your body healthy. This creates a healthier liver by allowing it to focus on removing toxins from the body.
8. Organic Yellow Dock Root
Yellow Dock Root helps eliminate the foreign substances that can overburden the liver. Yellow Dock Root is also used to address headaches, mental “fuzziness”, general irritability, skin blemishes, and blood and skin disorders—all of these problems are related to the liver not being able to operate efficiently.
9. Wildcrafted Chanca Piedra
With the recent “discovery” of a very well known Amazon rainforest plant, Chanca Piedra, healthcare practitioners have acquired a powerful plant ally in helping their patients maintain optimal bladder, kidney, gallbladder, and liver health. Chanca Piedra is traditionally regarded as a health supplement that can promote the liver’s normal detoxification efforts for purging harmful substances.
In the west and in other parts of the industrialized world, the masses have taken to cities where the lure of fancy goods and prestige become the priority in an ever shortening life span. The idea is to lessen the amount of time it takes to eat, sleep and exercise in order to work more. It is a glaring lacuna in the plan of happiness because when you look at the number one regret amongst the elderly, it’s wishing they didn’t work so much, wishing they spent more time enjoying the simplicity of life and taking care of their health.
But the hypnotic lure of glitter and flashing lights is too much for the average person to resist. Then when the glitter and night life begins to lose its luster, the masses turn to producing offspring as a way to search for happiness and continue the illusion. It’s an age old symptom that has been addressed by masters for ages… the outward search for happiness.
In the midst of the illusion is our body. Our magnificent human form, waiting to give us the ultimate experience of joy. But instead many humans ignore the magic within and continue to look outward as if we have to somehow attach ourselves to something in order for the magic to ignite. Our bodies go along with the foolishness, working and fighting to keep us alive until the battle is too much for the slowly dwindling strength of our immune system. The onslaught of nutrient deficient foods, chemicals and sugar in the the outward search for pleasure and happiness shifts the focus of life to disease, and the realization that we can no longer search outward. However, there is still the opportunity to lay blame on outside circumstances and label ourselves as being a victim of disease. People can find authorities in medicine, to partner with them to continue ignoring the idea of personal responsibility for health. They can go on with treatments and drugs until the label has been attached and the outcome is assured.
The health of our life is a deep and harmonious responsibility. Many people believe that by exercising regularly, going to the gym and taking their vitamins, they are doing all they can for their health and any event of disease is therefore an uncontrollable misfortune.
Internal happiness is the key to health. I know everyone has heard this age old phrase of wisdom, happiness begins within. The true source of our health comes from our energy field. Our energy field is created through the conscious and unconscious mind. The path of happiness and abundant health therefore lies in our ability to find happiness within. If one cannot be alone with themselves, sit in quiet without distraction and find comfort, they have not created the proper internal, healing strength. If being alone is uncomfortable and the need for constant distraction is necessary, then the path of fulfillment towards a life of joy is slipping. If one cannot meditate and silence the mind, the outside forces have taken control.
Meditation. A simple solution to everything and the most painful and feared process for many. How can something as non-doing be productive to health? This is the biggest obstacle of thought to overcome. The game of the mind. Do, Do, Do, Think, Think, Think, is the illusion, the trap, the snare that puts one on the fast-track to ill health and disease. We cannot create our outer self, our physical self, from the outer world. The outer self is created from the inner self.
Meditation allows one to be more in control over the processes of the body. It allows one to perceive the subtleties that our body speaks when it is time to make choices. It allows us to be in touch with the knowing that we truly create ourselves from thought.
Take the leap. You don’t need anything outside yourself. There is no need for a device or a class, a wrist band or a head piece. Just learn to be still. It’s that simple. Then the strength of self begins to blossom, the power of creation and true wisdom of health. If one does not develop this inner wisdom of health, it will only be a matter of time until…..
The turbulent world around us seems to be experiencing a division of ideas on what it is to be human. We definitely have two sides expressing their presence. It’s a peculiar spectacle to watch at the least. The dark and the light, or is it knowledge and ignorance, synthetic or organic?
Some entities feel humans should not have freedom or knowledge and instead be led into a pre-determined lifestyle free from unique expression, because unique expression would lead to chaos. Then there are those who believe the unlimited free will of humans will express be expressed in harmony and joy and discover a new world of abundance for everyone with no “one” in control.
This expression of creative differences may be referred to as “opponents”, but not really.
There are humans who have been blindly led to a life of disease and confusion. They are lost and will fight to keep their position at all cost rather than face the idea of responsibility for their life and their own direction. These are the slaves of a system. They will not face humiliation or judgment from their peers to become free. They will fight for their system as long as it keeps them fed, numb and entertained. These slaves are controlled by the few. A few people wanting to control food, water, energy, employment to the system, media and entertainment.
Then there are the awakening ones. These humans have literally, like waking from a bad dream, shaken off any and all beliefs from the rubbish fed into society by the few who have wanted to control all.
The awakened ones are simply saying no to the system of limitation and offering their precious human energy in another direction. The awakened ones do not want to change the system and continue to ask for permission from the big boss. They are creating a new world out of their exponential growing intelligence and ideas of freedom and living on earth as natural human beings.They understand that Mother Earth can more than provide for everyone, water, energy, food, housing and their is no reason for fear or control.
When you look at it like this, you see the one side using fear and tyranny to manipulate and control more and more people into playing their game, and another group simply walking away to play a new game. But those still clinging to their control game of human limitation want to numb as many as possible to become slaves and help to cage those walking away. It’s not possible. When one has awakened to their ability to create and make choices based on their desires for joy, their is no one with a greater power over them. It’s at this great understanding when the law of attraction is realized and life becomes new again.
The awakening ones know that its our simple joy to live as an example and allow everyone to experience their current beliefs as they are, that lights the way much clearer. They believe humans have unbounded energy and potential and when harnessed with conscious clarity and passion can create anything. So they are creating a world free from control and experiencing a dawn of human joy and creativity like never before.
Awaken, for it is better and easier than you may think.
Begin to ignite into ideas of a life with no jobs, no money, abundant food, water, creative freedom, and harmony.
Start with gratitude for you next breath, and move with joy. Keep your heart forward and just say no.
Sometime, within the time span of our lives, we encounter beings who present themselves at the perfect time, offering the perfect solution, inspiration, support wisdom, etc, just when we need it. Many times it is as unexpected as a falling star, a gem in the mire.
Some people find these encounters unbelievable coincidences, while others realize this as a signature of the spirits who lead them along the path of their highest joy.
These beings are angels, wandering angels I call them. Though some may not actually wander, and find home in a secure residence. They have qualities that are usually unexpected, qualities that show up at times of serendipity. These may be the mail person with unequaled knowledge of astronomy, or the construction worker who can quote every line in a Shakespeare classic.
Angels have certain qualities that are run deep and show up at perfect, opportunistic times.
Then there are the true wanderers, those who show up, perform miracles, then like the changing of seasons, find their way to move like the wind. Wandering angels, have a spirit which is hard to tame. Their beauty and skills are not meant to be held in one place for too long. We can see these beings as creative geniuses, even tortured souls. It’s as if they don’t belong here. Many times they have a hard time relating to the earthly mentality. Some of these beings have a good foundation for handling themselves on earth while others have a difficult time getting along and live a short life filled with addiction or strife.
These beautiful souls find their way into our hearts. We feel the depth of who they are, and desire to know them. They may even be our siblings, our parents, or friends, but there is just something, that seperates them from us.
Wandering angels have a place to be, although, even they themselves do not know where that is. Even those with a firmer grasp on earthly expectations can find themselves wondering why they have come forth, and fantasize about how they will leave. They see the absurdity of the mundane lives humans create and the captivity of society. They don’t usually fit in, or at best find a place within the healing arts just to keep themselves well. Wandering angels can be millionaires or homeless, sometimes both.
There are even those who know they have gifts to share, but are afraid to let go to find their true selves. So instead they succumb to the insanity of attachments and peer pressure. Many of us on this earth now are angels, which is why it is getting harder and harder to fit-in to the binding forces put on us by religion and government.
When a soul decides to be free, when we decide to give faith the power in our life, that is when the angels appear as needed. It becomes a natural process and a guiding light for our creations. At this point of freedom, our creations then become much more unique to our expression of individuality within the space of oneness of humankind. We realize that harmony with earth and angels is possible and all the magic we need to live our dreams is at hand.
Angels are multiplying and gathering forces in mighty strength, but not to overcome an evil force, but to instead create a new vision, leaving old paradigms to fade away. Are you ready to join in?
In the mean time, when a wandering angel appears in your life, give them hope. Share your own light, support them however you can, and allow them to be free. They are the leaders.
Namaste all. I have put together some of my favorite quotes from the beautiful Douglas and also my great inspiration, Andrey Lappa. I hope you enjoy! ;o) (I am overflowing here, so ready to go!) ~Shalyn Bauschlicher, Associate Yoga Teacher
*The vital understanding of man on this earth and our relation to the heavens is discovered in the practice of yoga, through right living, and steady pose.
To this I would like to respond with the definition I found when searching “Satori” (what I know to be temporary Samadhi in Savasana, corpse pose): a flash of sudden awareness, individual enlightenment…”It is often said that when you truly need a teacher-or that which will function in lieu of a teacher-a teacher or satori, for example, will fall upon you.”
*Our physical body can heal and regenerate itself through awareness and interrelated support of the earth, sun and sky.
PRANA, Life Force
*We are inherently supposed to be strong, healthy and vibrant through our days, happy and wise as we age.
*Natural living is awareness of nature and living in harmony by nuturing the native environment and utilizing the fruits naturally present for our health and well being.
*While working to perfect the postures, our mind is challenged to be calm and peaceful in order to work through physical and emotional aspects of the practice.
*Synergize the movement into a powerful charge of energy…
This can be especially helpful when breaking through physical and emotion barriers in the individual practice…I am sure you will hear me repeat the words of my teacher in our practice together, “The pose is not easy, it is not difficult…it is what it is.”
*Regret for things we’ve done can be tempered by time. Regret for things we did not do is inconsolable.
(Book of Vinyasas: Creative Flow for Yoga by Douglas King)
Still one of my favorite books of sequences. I love Doug’s classes.
*Your attention is your “wireless” connection to your object of focus.
*Ego is the separation from things and those around you.
*Yoga is non-duality (unification), control (sign of presence of consciousness) and balance (control of energies).
*Using only physical practice with no balance of breath, meditation and purpose can actually inflate the ego.
For beginners the practice can be very good and humbling for the ego, but when only the only focus is asana development without the practice of the main goals of yoga (unity, control and balance) it can lead to imbalance and strong dualities.
*Yoga is technology teaching how to be conscious.
*God is One with many faces…Oneness has unlimited channels.
*When we eat unorganic foods, we are ingesting poison [residues]…eat unorganic thoughts and you have the same problem.
*For many people around the world, wealth and happiness can be found in a handful of rice: it means for one more week they have life. (And think of the expressions on the faces of people in Wall Street).
*…you don’t need much external information, you already have true knowledge within. You need to learn to apply the knowledge that you have.
Happy pondering! ;o) Namaste
