We here at Sage & Wisdom are big fans of the work of Dr. Hulda Clark. Though there are many recipes and various protocols in her books, she is probably best known for her liver/gall bladder flush. We would like to share with you an excerpt from her book: The Prevention of all Cancers:
“The following is particularly important in any disease-prevention program: Cleansing the liver of gallstones [or intrahepatic stones, meaning gallstones that are located in the liver or bile ducts, not the gallbladder] dramatically improves digestion, which is the basis of your whole health. You can expect your allergies to disappear, too, more with each cleanse you do! Incredibly, it also eliminates shoulder, upper arm, and upper back pain. You have more energy and increased sense of well being.
It is the job of the liver to make bile, 1 to 1½ quarts in a day! The liver is full of tubes (biliary tubing) that deliver the bile to one large tube (the common bile duct). The gallbladder is attached to the common bile duct and acts as a storage reservoir. Eating fat, protein, or citric acid triggers the gallbladder to squeeze itself empty after about 20 minutes, so the stored bile finishes its trip down the common bile duct to the intestine.
For many persons, including children, the biliary tubing is choked with gallstones. Some develop allergies or hives but some have no symptoms. When the gallbladder is scanned or x-rayed nothing is seen. Typically, they are not in the gallbladder. Not only that, most are too small and not calcified, a prerequisite for visibility on x-ray. There are over half a dozen varieties of gallstones, most of which have cholesterol crystals in them. They can be black, red, white, green or tan colored. The black ones are full of wheel bearing grease and motor oil, which turns to liquid in a warm place. The green ones get their color from being coated with bile. Other stones are composites—made of many smaller ones—showing that they regrouped in the bile ducts some time after the last cleanse.
At the very center of each stone is found a clump of bacteria, according to scientists, suggesting a dead bit of parasite might have started the stone forming.
As the stones grow and become more numerous the backpressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. It is also thought to slow the flow of lymphatic fluid. Imagine the situation if your garden hose had marbles in it. Much less water would flow, which in turn would decrease the ability of the hose to squirt out the marbles. With gallstones, much less cholesterol leaves the body, and cholesterol levels may rise.
Emptying the liver bile ducts is the most powerful procedure that you can do to improve your body’s health. But it should not be done before the parasite program, and for best results should follow the kidney cleanse.
Gallstones, being sticky, can pick up all the bacteria, viruses and parasite eggs that are passing through the liver. In this way “nests” of infection are formed, forever supplying the body with fresh parasite eggs and bacteria. No stomach infection such as ulcers or intestinal bloating can be cured permanently without removing these gallstones from the liver.”
The following is the recipe for Dr. Hulda Clark’s Gall Bladder Flush and Liver Cleanse. Please follow the instructions as they are set before you here – this is a tested program, there is no guess work, it really works!
- Epsom salts: 2-4 Tbsp
- Vitamin C powder: up to 1 Tbsp
- Organic olive oil: half cup (light olive oil is easier to get down)
- Fresh grapefruit juice: 2 medium grapefruit, enough to squeeze 2/3 – 1 cup juice. Hot wash twice first and dry each time. Do not use concentrate!
- Ornithine: 4 to 8 (if you regularly have trouble sleeping) capsules
- Large plastic straw: to help drink potion, if you like
- Pint jar with lid
- Black Walnut Tincture, any strength: 10 to 20 drops, to kill parasites coming from the liver
Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day. Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they could prevent success. Stop the parasite program and kidney herbs, too, the day before. Eat a no-fat, low/no-protein breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal, fruit, fruit juice, no-fat bread and preserves or honey (no butter or milk), broth with rice noodles. (Stopping all fat and protein the night before yields even better results.) This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.
2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink after 2 o’clock. If you break this rule, you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix up to 4 Tbsp. Epsom salt and up to 1 Tbsp. vitamin C powder in 3 cups water in a jar. This makes four servings, ¾ cup each – adjust according to your needs (you can also take the Epsom salt in capsule form, which may be easier for many who do not like the taste of the salts). Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only). (The V-C powder helps with the taste, but it also helps to kill bacteria and molds in your system.)
6:00 PM. Drink one serving (½-¾ cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts, or take 1 Tbsp worth of salts in capsule form. If you did not prepare this ahead of time, mix 1 Tbsp. in ¾ cup water now. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil and grapefruit out to warm up, assuming your grapefruit have been in the refrigerator.
8:00 PM. Repeat by drinking another ½-¾ cup of Epsom salts blend, or capsules. You haven’t eaten since two o’clock, but you won’t feel hungry thanks to the salts. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.
9:45 PM. Pour ½ cup olive oil into the pint jar. Wash grapefruit twice in hot water and dry; squeeze by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with fork. You should have at least 2/3 cup, more (up to 3/4 cup) is best. You may use part fresh lemon juice. Add this to the olive oil. Also add 20 drops of Black Walnut Tincture.
Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh grapefruit juice does this).
Now visit the bathroom one more time, even if it makes you late for your ten o’clock drink. Don’t be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.
10:00 PM. Take 4-8 ornithine capsules to make sure you will sleep through the night. Drink the potion you have mixed. Drinking through a large plastic straw may help it go down easier. You may use oil and vinegar salad dressing, or straight honey to chase it down between sips. Have these ready in a tablespoon on the kitchen counter. Take it all to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).
Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don’t. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time. Don’t clean up the kitchen. As soon as the drink is down walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow or on your right side with your knees tucked up near your chest. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you, Epsom salts!). Go to sleep, you may fail to get stones out if you don’t.
Next Morning. Upon waking, take your third dose of Epsom salts. You may only need one morning dose or to lessen the amount of salts you have per serving. If you have indigestion or nausea wait until it is gone before taking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don’t take this potion before 6:00 am.
2 Hours Later. Take your fourth (last) dose of Epsom salts. You may go back to bed again, but you may begin to feel the urge to eliminate soon after this dose. If you do, keep an eye out for gallstones!
After 2 More Hours, you may eat. Start with fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.
Alternative Schedule l: Omit the first Epsom salts dose at 6 p.m. – take only one dose, waiting till 8 p.m. OR Omit the second morning dose. Change nothing else. Many people still get stones with one less dose. If you do not, do the full course next time.
Alternative Schedule 2: After taking the first dose of Epsom salts in the morning, wait two hours and take a second dose of the oil mixture and go back to bed. After 4 more hours take another dose of Epsom salts. This schedule can increase the number of stones you remove.
NOTE: We do this cleanse every six months. The first time produced little noticeable results. The second time however, was a dramatic cleanse. The reason being that matter, stones and debris are pulled from the back of the liver and not all of it may be drawn completely out the first time. But the debris will be drawn closer to being released each time the cleanse is performed. For a two day cleanse this has some truly amazing results when done every six months.
