Every season I do a cleanse or flush. This season is no different. For Spring, I decided it's time for a liver and gallbladder cleanse. Imagine your internal organs are like a shower. As you know, if you don't clean your shower, guck will build up and well, that's pretty gross. Our bodies are the same. Year after year after year, the amazing machine is known as "our body" can take a lot. But in today's day and age, unless you're growing your own organic food, living outside of a city with clean air not exposed to traffic or environmental toxins you're invariably going to build up some residues in your fatty tissues and digestive tract. Cleanses are a great way to flush our bodies and push out the "guck" that may be accumulating.

I did a nutrition course with Dr. Axe and love his recipes. Here's a cleanse I am going to start today. I'll let you know how it goes. Please, don't do this cleanse without your own doctor's blessings. 

Benefits of Liver and Gallbladder Flush

This gallbladder flush is very important for detoxification. It’s good to do this gallbladder flush at least one point in your lifetime to ensure that your liver and gallbladder are flushed and cleansed.
This flush will help allow the gallbladder to function properly without having to be removed.
The gallbladder is very important for fat digestion and bile production.
A warning sign for gallbladder issues is pain near the upper right stomach and diaphragm, specifically after eating fat.
A gallbladder flush removes stones from the liver and gallbladder.

The Gall Bladder Flush-
1. Drink apple juice and eat only apples and raw vegetables for 1-3 days.
2. Before bed, drink ½ cup of first, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.
3. Also before bed, drink 1 c of lemon or grapefruit juice
4. Sleep in fetal position on right side.
5. In the morning, your body will flush gallstones and toxins.
