A serious web portal from Brazil that I trust, Natural Vibe, developed a liver cleansing with the assistance of serious professionals, and I decided to translate and share with you.
This process is recommended to people with a liver or vesicle condition, and to help in allergy process, to lose weight, improve digestion, and increase energy.
Note that this is a DETOX, and as all processes that will require discipline and change in your eating habits, it's strongly recommended that you check with your physician, especially if you have any health condition.
During the DETOX, there's a two days deep cleansing, and for that, it's mandatory that you are able to be relaxed and have rest during it. So, chose two days that you are able to stop working or stressing with anything.
Feel free to post comments and share your experience if you do it!
During six days drink one liter of apple juice (it's recommended to be home made, natural and organic) during the morning until 4pm, with a two hours break from the last meal. Ex: 500ml before breakfast and 500ml after lunch.
It's recommended that during those days, you cut animal meat (especially pork, cow and poultry because of toxins), processed food, refined sugar and caffeine.
For the two day cleansing you will need
1) Magnesium sulfate - 4 soup spoons (60g)
2) Mineral water – 3 glasses (750 ml);
3) Olive oil (extravirgem, first cold pressed) – 1⁄2 glass (125 ml);
4) Organic fresh lime – 2 to 4 big enough to fill 2/3 of a glass (180 ml);
5) Straw to help drink the olive oil
Note: It's advisable to wash the limes with hot water and dry it.
Choose a day to do, that you can rest during the next. Don’t take any medication during the day and it’s advised to avoid during when you are feeling weak or sick.
PART 1 – BREAKFAST
- teas (all but mate, black, chocolate and coffee);
- avoid bread, cake or cracker because of the oil;
- vegetable or green juices and honey.
para fora. Também mais bile descerá à vesícula e nela se acumulará.
PARTE 2 – LUNCH
Cook a light meal, free of any fat- no milk, curd, eggs, meat (because of the cholesterol), oil, butter, cheese, avocado, pastas, cheese spread, nuts - and avoid proteins and caffeine.
PARTE 3 – PAUSE OF INGESTION
At 2pm stop eating and drinking. If you break this rule you might feel bad after. Prepare the Magnesium Sulfate:
B – THE CLEANSING
1 – PREPARING THE MAGNESIUM SULFATE
Mix well 4 spoons of the magnesium sulfate and the 3 glasses of water in a jar. distribute the content in 4 glasses and leave in the fridge.
Note: You can add vitamin C in powder to the water or sub the water with pure lime, apple or grapefruit juice to improve the taste.
2 – FIRST GLASS
At 6pm drink the first glass. You can gargle with a bit of water after drinking to wash the mouth.
3 – SECOND GLASS
At 8pm drink the second glass, and feel free to gargle with water again. Even without eating since 2pm, you won’t feel hungry. Time to prepare to sleep. Leave everything you need around, because the timing during the next steps is very important to the success of the cleansing.
4 – PREPARE THE GLASS WITH THE OLIVE OIL AND LIME
At 9:45pm leave half glass (125ml) of olive oil and squeeze the limes (or grapefruit) until fill 3/4 of a glass. Mix both and shake well to mix very well. Maybe you will have to shake again before drinking. Go to the bathroom if you need.
5 – DRINKING THE OLIVE OIL
At 10pm drink all the mix of olive oil and lime. YOU MUST DRINK IT STANDING, NOT LAYING DOWN.
Some tips to drink it: use a straw or alternate some sips with a bit of honey. Don’t take more than 5 minutes to drink all.
IMPORTANT: You can go to the bathroom anytime, but during the rest period (until 1:30hs after drinking the olive oil with lime) you can’t.
Lay down immediately after drinking the olive oil. The sooner you lay down, the more stones will come out. Lay down on your back with the head in your pillow. You might feel the stones walking on your bile ducts, but you won’t feel pain because the magnesium sulfate opened the bile ducts and the vesicle valves.
Try to be completely still in the same position for 1h (even better if during 2hs). Calm your brain and sleep are the best thing to do now.
6 – THE DAY AFTER AND THE 3RD GLASS
When you wake up, drink the 3rd glass with the magnesium sulfate, but not before 6am. If you feel sick or dizzy when you wake up, wait until you feel better to drink. After drinking you can come back to bed.
7 – 4TH AND LAST GLASS
2hs after you drank the 3rd, drink the 4th. If you want, come back to bed.
8 – EAT
2 hours after the last dose of the magnesium sulfate you can eat again. Start with a fruit juice or a glass of chlorophyll. After 2hours you can eat regular food, but choose light ones that are easy on your digestion, and with very little (or no) seasoning. You might feel better in the end of the day.
Note: Light meals are the best option during this day. After all, almost all your intestines (around 5 meters) will be empty with the cleansing.
C – AFTER THE CLEANSING
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THE CLEANSING WENT WELL?
Expect a light diarrhea during the morning. This is important in order to expel the stones that came dow from your vesicle.
You can repeat the cleansing with 2 weeks breaks at least. It’s recommended 20 days to 1 month break. NEVER DO IT WHEN YOU ARE SICK.
Again, everyone is different, so always consult your doctor before doing any procedure to make sure you don’t have any condition that could be harmful instead of helpful.
