MY FIRST LIVER FLUSH, THE DETOX OF THE LIVER WITH EPSOM SALT, OLIVE OIL AND LEMON JUICE
I don´t drink alcohol, yet there were times in my life that I did drink it. I consider myself as eating healthy and clean - yet my liver is cleaning 1,4L blood per minute and has never been cleaned within 34 years of my life. If I imagine a sieve!!!!! being used for 34 years in this extend I didn´t know how it would look like.
The last couple of months the check in the mirror was always reflected by a pale, grey tone of my face, eye circles and puffy eyes.
During a conversation with friends I got to know about the rejuvenating and healing power of liver flushes and after researching about it, I tuned in with the thought of giving my liver a treatment of relief.
THE PERFECT FLUSH-TIMING
I timed my Liver flush with the new moon because the energies of this moon phase are said to be very supportive in detoxification, weight loss and fasting.
WHY A LIVER FLUSH IS HELPFUL
The liver is a hard working organ, cleansing the blood of the body a life time long. Not only through food and alcohol but also through external toxins, heavy metals, pollution and stress the liver accumulates toxins. A liver flush removes the excess fat from the liver and gets the bile flowing again. Toxic waste gets flushed and the liver can regenerate damaged and destroyed cells.
WHY YOU ALSO SHOULD BE CAREFUL
- Epsom salt is very harsh on the organs
- Very de-hydrating method
- Weakens the digestive fire (agni)
- toxins may be redistributed
WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE
3-4 DAYS BEFORE
start to drink at least 0,5-1,5L cloudy organic apple juice per day until the day of the flush
This will help to activate the bile secretion, supporting the liver to release toxins
2 DAYS BEFORE
no coffein, no alcohol, no dairy products, no meat. Try to eat as little and as light as possible
1 DAY BEFORE
try to stick to fruits only and don´t eat after 5pm
have a light breakfast and don´t eat after 2pm. drinking water and apple juice is also allowed after 2pm
Around 5pm start to prepare 3 glasses with water and add 2 table spoons of Epsom Salt to each glass. Squeeze the lemons or grapefruits and store the juice for later. Prepare your couch or bed. Make yourself cozy. Turn off the phone, TV and laptop. Tune in with your body, read, meditate, do what relaxes you and feels good.
6pm drink the first glass
8pm drink the second glass and lay down.
9.45pm prepare the oil and grapefruit (or lemon juice) mix, shake or blend well so it gets an even liquid.
10pm drink the oil lemon mix and lay down for sleep. Try to keep on your right side to bring the liquid right into your liver. You might experience sour burping, nausea or vomiting. Stay calm, breath through it.
6am drink the last glass of epsom salt
Try to stay home and close to the bathroom during the whole day. Have tea during the morning whenever you feel like it. Around lunch you may have a glass of fresh orange juice and a light meal, like a vegan porridge or soup. Drink milk-thistle tincture in your water and turmeric shots for the next 5 days to support your liver and gall bladder functions.
WHAT CAME OUT OF ME? AFTER THE LIVER FLUSH
I did not have a lot of stones in my poop, but many yellow slug which is fat that come out of the liver. The first flush can always be a little less strong because it needs quite some effort to get the stones washed out of the liver. If first the fat is washed out you should get the stones washed out with your next few flushes. I lost quite some liquid, went to the bathroom almost the whole day and had very watery, yellow poop full of super stinky bits and pieces of white, brown and black color.
HOW OFTEN TO REPEAT A LIVER FLUSH?
In my research I found out that a liver flush can be done every other months but should minimum be done twice a year to keep the liver working in the best way.
