Cleansing the Liver and the Gallbladder
(Please contact Alexis for information about how the liver/gallbladder cleanse works)
. After age 30 almost all the people accumulate stones in the liver and gallbladder. Some adults with a very good and healthy liver manage to clean out the entire liver in only 3-5 cleanses. You can see the difference from the cleanse in the quality of the skin.
. You cannot blame your liver for making gallstones constantly. Be happy that your liver is still able to pack all the bad toxins inside these small marbles, so that they are not reabsorbed into your intestines.
. Other people release stones every time they do a cleanse, regardless of cleanse frequency. The liver in these cases is able to generate hundreds of new stones. Similar to the process of crystallization inside intrahepatic bile ducts, bile starts crystallizing and stones starts growing in just a few days or few weeks.
. New stones are usually of tan-green color, almost transparent. Stones are formed from pure cholesterol, bile salts and toxins, heavy metals, mercury from food and amalgam, cadmium, lead, and others. Old stones can have more different colors, more pigment, more different salts and if cut across one will see layers, which can not be easily seen in stones created in very short time.
. If your liver keeps producing stones constantly, you can do 1 cleanse every two months.
. People who do cleanse regularly, will dramatically reduce their chances for getting cancer, arthritis, diabetes, AIDS and many other diseases. This cleanse will help to keep toxins and parasites away. It also helps improve emotional health.
. For people who already suffer from musculoskelatal disorders, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and AIDS, the liver cleanse is a vital step in regaining health.
. It is the job of the liver to make bile, 1 to 1.5 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 fats triggers the gallbladder to squeeze itself empty after about twenty minutes, and the stored bile finishes its trip down the common bile duct to the intestine. The liver usually manages to take most of the toxins (that it can recognize) out of our body.
. Bile is used to remove heavy metals out from our body (cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, radioactive elements, ...) But, the way our liver is doing it may cause those toxins to come back inside of our body. Our liver is producing bile from cholesterol by converting it into bile acids. Bile also contains a lot of toxins that have to be removed from our body. But, the problem is that bile is going directly into our intestines, and by doing this we have chance of absorbing those toxins again in our blood stream.
. It is natural fibers and lignans in our food that are suppose to bind with bile, and help taking bile out of our intestines. What happens if we don't eat enough fibers? We may reabsorb some of the bile back into the blood and lymph stream.
. In order to prevent reabsorbing those toxins, our intestines produce even more mucus on its walls, preventing in this way absorption of too many harmful substances. Now, as it may not be enough, our liver starts coagulating some bile that contains a lot toxins, in order to let them pass through our intestines without being absorbed. Now, those coagulated acids are called gallstones. And they are occasionally passed down the intestines, when we eat fatty foods.
. For many persons, including children, the biliary tubing is choked with gallstones. Some develop allergies or hives but some have no symptoms. As the stones grow and become more numerous the back pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile.
. 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 rise.
. Gallstones, being porous, can pick up all the bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasites that are passing through the liver. In this way "nests" of infection are formed, forever supplying the body with fresh bacteria. No stomach infection such as ulcers or intestinal bloating can be cured permanently without removing these gallstones from the liver.
. Not only that gallstones will decrease production of bile, but some of them may also move down to the gallbladder. Amount of bile that you actually get in your intestines is equal to the amount of water that you have squeezed the second time. Because you did not get enough bile, fats you ate will not be properly digested, and you will not be able to absorb them. Also having not enough bile inside intestines will affect intestinal flora. It may also make you more susceptible to intestinal parasites. Did you know that 80% of people have intestinal parasitic animals? Once parasites get into your bowel system, they eat your nutrients, they secrete toxins.
. You absorb those toxins. Toxins from parasites also kill intestinal flora; beneficial bacteria like lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidumbacter bifidus, ... Without intestinal flora, candida albicans and other yeast grow inside your bowel without control. Toxins produced by the candida yeast family can cause many diseases. Candida can escape from the bowel, and cause a lot of troubles on your skin, inside your muscles (fibromyalgia, CFS), inside your brain (brain fog), and generally decrease your immunity, making you more susceptible to any other infection. Without intestinal flora, your digestion is not going to prepare nutrients from the food, for absorption. Your bowel digestion is going to prepare toxins for absorption.
. After 5 - 50 years of this kind of digestion, you may develop constipation, colitis, crohn's disease, Irritable bowel syndrome, tumors, arthritis, and cancer. When you eat some fatty foods, your body gives you a warning. The gallstones attack in a way, by causing allergies, or digestive problems, or arthritis, or shoulder pain, or arm pain,... You name it. "Tunnels" in your liver are obstructed with stones, and very little of bile comes into your duodenum. Because you don't have enough bile, fats will not be properly digested, and you will not absorb them.
. At the same time, there is no gallbladder to collect bile in-between meals, so bile will be dropping out from your liver, directly into the intestines. That will irritate intestines, making it more possible for you to develop ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, frequent diarrhea, bloating and poor digestion. There will not be enough bile when it is needed, and in the same time, there will be too much bile when you don't need it! Fats you ate will not be properly digested, and you will not be able to absorb them.
. Also having not enough bile inside intestines will affect intestinal flora. It may also make you more susceptible to intestinal parasites. Once parasites get into your bowel system, they eat your nutrients, they secret toxins. You absorb those toxins. Toxins from parasites also kill intestinal flora; beneficial bacteria like lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidumbacter bifidus. Without intestinal flora, candida albicans and other yeast grow inside your bowel without control. Toxins produced by candida yeast family can cause numerous diseases. Candida can escape from the bowel, and cause a lot of troubles on your skin, inside your muscles (Fibromyalgia, CFS), inside your brain (brain fog), and generally decrease your immunity. making you more susceptible to any other infection.
. Without intestinal flora, your digestive process is not going to prepare nutrients from the food, for absorption. Your bowel digestion is going to prepare toxins for absorption. After 1 - 50 years of this kind of digestion, you may develop constipation, colitis, Crohn's disease, Irritable bowel syndrome, tumors, allergies, arthritis, cancer, and many other health problems.
. Gallbladder operations are the most common operation in North America. Every year, more than half a million people in the United States and more than 50,000 people in Canada undergo surgery to remove their gallbladders because of gallstones.
o 90% of people have gallstones
o 80% of people do not know that they have gallstones
o 50% of children have gallstones
o Approximately 80% of all gallstones show no symptoms and may remain "silent" for years.
o More than 90 % of Americans and people in developing countries will, in their life, develop some of these problems: Acne, Colitis, Heart diseases, Leukemia, Crohn's disease, Irritable bowel syndrome, Tumors, Allergies, Arthritis, Eczema, Psoriasis, Cancer, AIDS.
