Liver Gallbladder Flushes

EDIT: Please read my Nearly 3 Years Later: 3 Broken Bones & 200+ Pounds - The Long-Term Effects of Juice Fasting update before considering juice fasting.  I hope that my experience will provide you with real-world information about long-term juicing.

Liver/gallbladder flushes are one of the hottest trends for those who do detoxes, and I must admit that I tried it.  Yes, I did expel what looked like "stones".  However, since I never leave a stone unturned (tacky, I know), I used a tool to place one onto something to examine it.  I used the tool to press it, and what do you know?  It completely disintegrated and was very oily.

Here's what I know: The Epsom salt flush was a horrendous experience for me.  My kidneys took a beating and they were sore for a day or two.  Do not do this "flush"!

  1. Ohhh so the stones are soft and oily inside, shucks. Thanks for the warning Red. By the way, I'm looking for gallstone remedies. Do you have information regarding it?

  2. I am sorry, I do not have any other information than the link provided in the blog and my personal experience. I wish I could help more.
