A completely natural do-it-yourself herbal program designed to cleanse the liver of toxic residues and gallstones in order to allow the liver and gallbladder to heal. It can be used by healthy individuals to maintain health, or it can be used to help regain health even in the seriously or terminally ill. This cleanse can easily be done at home. No enemas or colonics are needed during this program because the same deep cleansing effect is accomplished with the herbal intestinal formulas taken by mouth. This cleanse allows people to take control over their own health.
This program does not simply flush out gallstones, but also many different types of toxins that have been stored in the liver and gallbladder. The most common results are that of eliminating gallstones, pre-gallstones or round fat-like globules. Some things float on the surface of the toilet water, while others must be caught in a strainer or colander to be identified later. Other people have eliminated parasites, and rarely, mold-like material. (These people were severely ill, and thus, had quite a toxic accumulation in the liver.)
It can be extended for longer periods of time in those with serious health issues, or rotated with the Kidney/ Bladder Revitalization Program. Sometimes the Liver Regeneration Program must be repeated a few times in order to allow all of the toxic material to be eliminated. In severe illness, a client might do this routine every other week for months until he or she is well.

The program that I use to heal the liver is purely herbal. People can do it in the privacy of their own homes. It begins the process of removing the toxic substances in the liver and gallbladder that are causing problems. The L/GB Formula and the Detox Herbal Tea are designed to be used together with a morning juice drink to help the liver release any gallstones, parasites, or accumulated thickened bile material. The intestinal formulas (Vibrant Colon and Colon Detox Caps) included in the program help to absorb the toxins that are released from the liver and gallbladder into the intestines.
The program activates healthy bile flow from the liver, releases pharmaceutical and other toxic residues out of the liver, releases excess cholesterol from the liver, and helps the liver to regenerate itself. I have seen this this program help regardless of whether or not there is scar tissue in the liver, even in cases of cirrhosis (a lower dose is usually used). Liver cleansing herbs are bitter. The bitter taste sets the liver in motion, allowing it to produce bile and healthy enzymes in order to cleanse itself. The results of clearing out the liver can be felt all over the entire body.
Only foods and herbs (and positive thoughts) can help repair a damaged liver and/or gallbladder. This is because they are recognized as foods. They are not toxic, and therefore they do not cause the liver to work in order to detoxify them. All synthetic chemicals are recognized as foreign and toxic to the body. Therefore, when the liver sees a chemical, it automatically goes into action producing enzymes to neutralize it and get rid of it. This is a complicated process involving Phase I and Phase II enzymes and trying to produce more bile to dilute the foreign substance. After a certain point, after all of this work trying to save the body from dangerous chemicals, the liver can begin to wear out. Then the liver function slows down. This is where many chronic health problems arise.
The L/GB Formula and the Detox Chai Spice do not contain anything artificial or cancer-causing. The herbs gently support the liver in helping it to catch up on its detoxifying work so that it can return to producing adequate enzymes to properly digest foods and detoxify the body. Some of the herbs specifically protect the liver from damage, and help to repair a liver that has already been damaged.
If you have signs or symptoms of liver and/or gallbladder toxicity or a chronic disease that does not respond to treatment, then it is time to take herbs to heal the liver before the toxicity worsens and produces even worse disease.
Each day, we are exposed to thousands of foreign chemicals in the air in the water, in and on our foods, in our houses. Daily we are exposed to paints, solvents, preservatives, pharmaceutical medications, household cleaning chemicals, mercury residues in our fish, artificial colors and flavorings, asbestos fibers on brake pads, sodium lauryl sulfate in our soaps and detergents, industrial waste chemicals in tap water, gasoline fumes, benzene residues contained in natural gas, and pesticide residues on our morning coffee and in our foods.
Although the FDA has set acceptable limits for each chemical, there are no guidelines as to what is safe when a person is exposed to multiple chemicals all day long. Most people living in industrialized countries such as the United States are exposed to multiple chemicals ALL DAY LONG EVERY DAY. There are simply no acceptable limits for being exposed to this many chemicals on a regular basis. Our civilized lifestyle IS a toxic lifestyle.
Toxic chemical overload is one of the biggest reasons why so many people suffer from chronic diseases. Due to the enormous amount of synthetic chemicals that have been introduced into the environment since the 1940's, it is wise to do a liver healing program one to four times a year to make sure that the liver is protected from this chemical onslaught and continues to stay healthy even if there are no symptoms.
By the time a person turns forty, it is common to have gallstones. Medical diagnostic manuals tell us that everyone will have gallstones if they live long enough. Sometimes, liver toxicity can be present for years without people realizing that their minor symptoms are signs that their liver is having trouble doing its job of detoxifying the body and digesting foods. Additionally, many of the problems of aging are actually due to a toxic liver. Liver diseases left unchecked can lead to liver cancer or liver failure. Medical doctors have no cure for these conditions. This is when liver transplants are performed. Yet these problems can be avoided by learning how to cleanse and heal the liver naturally.
Pretty much everyone should do this cleanse.
People who do not have a gallbladder do not digest fats as well, and for this reason, they should reduce the amount of oil in the morning drink recipe to 1/2 the recommended amount.
I've put hundreds of people on this liver cleanse who did not have a gallbladder. (If the truth be known, over half the population over the age of 40 has had their gallbladder surgically removed, making this a very common situation that I see just about every day.) People who have had their galblladders removed do fine on the Liver Regeneration Program.
People that have had their gallbladder removed should not, however, do other versions of liver cleanses that require the drinking of 8 ounces of olive oil. This is far too much oil for person without a gallbladder to consume. It will definitely make them vomit and they will feel very sick.
So, people who have had their gallbladder removed should do a gentle liver cleanse such as the Liver Regeneration Program and stay away from harsher liver cleanse recipes that float around the internet, in many natural health books and among friends.
Toxicity in the Biliary System (liver and gallbladder) can cause one or any combination of the following symptoms:
Type I and II
|Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)||Low energy|
|Chronic indigestion||Trouble digesting fatty foods||Chronic insomnia|
|"Brain fog"||Chronic depression||Chronic Fatigue Syndrome|
|Overweight||High cholesterol||High triglycerides|
|Low Sex Drive||Jaundice||Hepatitis A, B or C|
|Chronic headaches||Migraines||Past gallbladder removal|
|Gulf War Syndrome||Gallstones||Fibromyalgia|
|Difficulty concentrating||Heavy metal toxicity||Senility or dementia|
|Cancer - all types||Past surgery on intestines||Alzheimer's Disease|
|Skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis, itching||Chemical sensitivities||Candida Yeast Overgrowth|
|Liver disease||Liver damage due to medications (past or current)||Liver parasites|
|Cirrhosis of the liver||Liver failure||Benign liver tumor(s)|
|Panic attacks||Constipation||Recreational drug use (past or current)|
|Heart problems||Osteoarthritis||Serious, incurable diseases|
|Thyroid problems||having Crohn's disease or colitis for many years||having any intestinal disease for years|
|on hormone replacement therapy (past or current)||Having had the usual vaccinations||taking anabolic steroids (past or current)|
Biliary toxicity may be addressed by healing the liver and gallbladder with the Liver and Gallbladder Regeneration Formulas and in combination with proper food choices. In severe cases, other herbal healing programs may need to be added.
Healing the Liver & Gallbladder Can Heal Many Seemingly Unrelated Health Conditions:
Thousands of new toxic chemicals are now found everywhere in the environment (in hospitals, the air, tap water, household cleansers, beauty products, synthetic fragrances, animal products, artificial flavorings and colorings). The liver is the major detoxifying organ in the body, and we have overloaded it through the years with all sorts of harmful synthetic substances. When filled with toxic substances, the liver weakens and cannot function well. This weakening eventually leads to all kinds of liver conditions, including hepatitis, which is now so common that it is becoming an epidemic. Viruses merely function to clean up filth and decay in the body.
The hepatitis virus should not be considered to be the enemy, but the toxins in the liver that the virus feeds on should be. Without malnutrition, buildup of toxic fats and cholesterol, heavy metal residues and other toxic chemical substances that have accumulated in the liver, the hepatitis virus simply cannot survive. When the liver is toxic, the immune sytem becomes weak, and diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gulf War Syndrome, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, obesity, mental illness, hormonal imbalance and all types of cancers can develop. Many of my clients have found that after thoroughly cleansing the liver and gallbladder, these conditions simply disappeared.
The toxins have been left in the liver for so long that the odor cannot help but announce itself in the breath. "Depression breath" can be so foul that many people have difficulty speaking with the depressed person. The odor on the breath can be used as a reliable indicator of toxins in the body. The more foul the breath, the closer a person gets to an incurable disease. Many doctors have now recognized that many types of cancer (for example, pancreatic cancer) are preceded by years of clinical depression. Yet, they do not understand the link between liver toxicity and depression.
The most common offenders are antidepressants, antipsychotic
medications, medication for high cholesterol, diabetes medications,
birth control pills, and anticonvulsant medications (for seizures
or epilepsy). The accumulated toxins continue to build up in the
liver, which can lead to progressively worse health problems
until a fatal disease develops that eventually causes death. Before
that time, more and more medications are added on to relieve symptoms
caused by the toxicity that is never cleared out. Synthetic medications
add to the toxicity already there, so that there is little chance of
ever healing from the chronic disease.
Yet, in the minority of cases, even though the virus may be defeated by interferon therapy, the toxicity and liver weakness that cause the virus to thrive are still there. Therefore, the liver is still open and vulnerable to other bacteria, viruses, parasites, and many other types of infections and diseases. This is probably the biggest reason why, even though the viral levels dramatically decrease in response to interferon therapy, over time, liver cancer eventually develops.
Medical doctors have nothing in
their arsenal that can prevent liver cancer from developing once
a person has been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis. Twenty years of chronic inflammation in the liver usually always turns into cancer. Since pharmaceutical
medications must all be detoxified by the liver, they are a further
stress on an already inflamed liver. This is why there will never
be a "chemical" cure for hepatitis.
Many years ago when the polio virus was developed,
it was believed that it contained only the polio virus. It was developed
from the kidney pus of pigs infected with the polio virus. Pus
contains many types of bacteria and viruses, so the researchers
tried to "clean" the pus. They believed they were successful. However,
after many new discoveries in science, researchers reexamined the
polio vaccine and found that it contained more than a hundred different
types of live bacteria and viruses that were unknown to them when
they first developed the vaccine. One of these viruses was the SV40
virus. This virus was later found repeatedly in various cancerous
tumors, and especially in malignant breast tumors. Based on this,
researchers now believe that this virus causes cancer. Many scientists
believe that polio was not eradicated at all, but that it merely
mutated into the viruses that now cause multiple sclerosis.
Many also believe that the main reason for the polio epidemic was due to the high number of tonsillectomies performed. At the time, doctors did not know that the tonsils are the only organ that can produce antibodies that fight polio, so this left vast numbers of people helpless against polio infection. The tonsils are a vital part of the body's immune system that help protect it against many types of infections.
After learning this lesson the hard way, isn't it time we learn the alternatives to removing vital organs and instead, learn how to cleanse and regenerate them naturally instead?
There are many versions of liver/gallbladder flushes floating around. Many of them are too harsh for people who are ill. These involve consuming an entire cup of olive oil and using salt as an intestinal flush. Consuming eight ounces of olive oil often results in nausea and vomiting. At least half of all the patients I know who attempted the 8 ounce flush vomited. Of course, no one told them to add any digestive herbs or digestive teas just after drinking the oil mixture in order to avoid the nausea and vomiting. (Do you see how helpful herbs can be?).
If you can't keep the flush down, how are you going to flush out gallstones? I have found that most people can handle about half this amount of oil or even up to 6 ounces of olive oil as long as they take digestive herbs and/or digestive herbal tea afterwards. This way, no one vomits.
Now, onto the salt issue: Consumption of the salt mixture usually results in watery diarrhea within a half hour. Sure, it will get the intestines moving - within half an hour and in an uncontrollable way involving rushing to the bathroom and possibly having an accident. Despite the seemingly dramatic results, this is actually a poor intestinal cleanse and does not result in the elimination of the mucoid plaque layer of the intestines. Diarrhea can deplete vital electrolytes, cause extreme fatigue and can be dangerous for those on heart medications and other medications that depend on proper electrolye balance. It is never necessary to induce diarrhea in order to cleanse the colon.
Many a patient of mine have had colonoscopies and drank the gallon of fluid designed to "clean out the colon" for the colonoscopy. It induces the same type of diarrhea - called "osmotic" diarrhea. When taking this solution, patients have to make multiple urgent trips to the bathroom, and this procedure ends up being exhausting and depleting for many people. My grandmother had to drink this fluid in the hospital while in the hospital for a bleeding ulcer (caused by her medications), and she at one point became so weak, she was crying and shaking and telling us she didn't know if she was going to make it through the night.
Despite being told that the solution "cleans you out," after leaving the hospital, she still had just as many health problems as before and just as severe of a constipation problem as she ever had. And she never passed the mucoid plaque layer, either.
Many types of popular liver flushes rely on large quantities of oil to cleanse the liver without using herbs that protect the liver from the very toxic materials that can come out. The Liver Regeneration Program allows people to increase the oil content of the flush gradually and can be safely used by those without gallbladders. It contains herbs that specifically protect the liver as well as cleanse it and naturally strengthen its functions.
So, you've been having pains due to a gallbladder clogged with gallstones. Your doctor says he/she wants to remove your gallbladder. Why might you think twice about this surgery?
The reason the gallbladder becomes toxic with stones is because the liver is toxic. Surgeons also cannot remove bile sludge and other toxic accumulations in the liver, either. Because doctors can do nothing to improve the functioning of the liver - toxins continue to accumulate there. This means that every health problem one has that is the result of a toxic liver (see above) continues and worsens. Over the years, migraines worsen, constipation problems worsen, energy levels continue to decrease, memory loss worsens, and one continues to put on unwanted pounds.
The most important function of the gallbladder is to concentrate and store a specified amount of bile that is produced by the liver. Bile is needed in order to digest the fats in foods. When a person eats a meal, the gallbladder contracts and releases a large dose of concentrated bile into the intestines to help digestion of fats. This large dose is needed to order to properly digest a full meal.
Without a gallbladder, the bile produced in the liver slowly drips out into the intestines a drop at a time.The bile is no longer concentrated, so its functions are weakened. Now, the amount of bile is no longer enough to properly digest a full-sized meal. After gallbladder removal, many people typically find that they can no longer eat a full meal without indigestion. They end up having to eat small snacks frequently thoughout the day, and must avoid fatty foods.
The pancreas will try to compensate for the lack of digestive enzymes after the gallbladder has been removed. However, after years of trying to compensate, the pancreas becomes overworked and has a tendency to wear out. When it wears out, diabetes appears. Unless liver cleansing programs are used to clean out the liver toxicity that started this problem in the first place, there may be no chance for healing the diabetes. Although herbs may be taken to strengthen the pancreas (e.g. cedar berries, etc.), unless the liver is also healed, the diabetes may not improve.
As many natural healers insist: proper digestion is the number one most important factor in maintaining good health.
Quick and Easy Liver Flush Drink
(No Blender Needed!)
8 oz. fresh fruit juice * (see below)
First thing in the morning, place the above ingredients in a large 16 ounce mug or other drinking container. If the container has a lid, then shake the ingredients. If not, then a Vita Minder® portable drink mixer can be used. The VitaMinder is fairly silent and allows for thorough mixing of the juice and oil. Cleanup takes only a few seconds.
Drink it down all at once. Sit quietly for a few minutes to allow the juice mixture to go to work. Fifteen minutes after consuming this drink, drink 2 cups of the Detox Herbal Tea. If Detox Herbal Tea is not available, use 2 droppers full of the liquid Digestive Formula. The L/GB Formula is taken in a little water or juice or it may be mixed in with the morning drink or to the Detox Herbal Tea.
Which Juices to Use:
a. If diabetic, use only limes, lemons, grapefruit or green apples - they are least likely to raise blood sugar, and, in this recipe, the juice is diluted with an equal amount of water which means there will be even less of an effect on the blood sugar. When garlic is used, there can be a significant blood-sugar lowering effect - insulin may need to be adjusted downwards.
b. If not diabetic, and you have a lot of heavy metals accumulated in your body, or have many "silver amalgam" fillings, use grape juice, as it is very high in pectin, which absorbs and draws out heavy metals from the body. If one has more than a few "silver amalgam" fillings in the mouth and drinks soft drinks out of aluminum cans, then it can safely be assumed that there are plenty of heavy metal deposits in the body.
c. Otherwise, use apple or citrus or a citrus juice combination including lemons, limes, tangerines, mandarin oranges, and/or grapefruit. Nutritional research has shown that citrus fruits help to slowly dissolve kidney stones and gall stones. It's best to use whatever is in season at the time, but this is not mandatory.
d. One can use a manual citrus juicer to juice citrus fruits quietly so as not to disturb family members or roommates in the morning.
