Liver Cleanse

I've been debating doing a liver cleanse for a couple of years now. So I finally did my homework, prepared all the ingredients necessary (with the help of a friend), and decided to do my cleanse today. I started my day out with a bowl of grits and a banana (no butter in my grits :-( eliminating fat in my diet today will allow the bile to build up and develop pressure in my liver).

For lunch I had steamed vegetables and rice with a soy and garlic gravy (again no fat). I'm not allowed to eat or drink anything after 2pm. Since I've never done this before, I have some trepedations, such as "Did I get enough to eat? Did I get enough to drink to stay comfortable until my next step? Will I get a headache from low blood sugar?"

At 6pm I start to drink my chilled epsom salt solution. Epsom salts are supposed to relax the bile duct so that if there are any large stones to pass, it won't be uncomfortable. I hear drinking the epsom salts can be unpleasant, but I tasted the solution and didn't find it too offensive (not like goldenseal). By then I expect I'll be thirsty and won't mind it too much. My 8 o'clock dose may be another story.

Finally at 10pm I will drink an olive oil/grapefruit juice mixture. This should do the trick for any sugar or caloric debt I may be feeling. Since I like both ingredients, I am optimistic that I won't mind this step of the process. Then it's to bed right away.
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. 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.

Benefits of this cleanse according to Dr. Hulda Clark, PhD, ND:
Cleansing the liver of gallstones 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 an increased sense of well being. It is also supposed to help lower cholesterol.
