I have done a 7-day Liver, gallbladder and colon cleanse. Let me say, it was an interesting experience and I recommend that everyone do a cleanse at least once a year.
For those with gallstones it requires 2-3 cleanses, done once a month for 2-3 months.
So why do a cleanse?
Everyone will benefit from periodic cleansing of the liver, gallbladder and colon. However, it is especially beneficial to those suffering from the following symptoms:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Abdominal cramps
- People who drink too much alcohol
- Poor diet that is rich in fatty foods
- Frequent colds, virus, flu
The above symptoms may be affecting the proper functioning of the liver and digestive systems.
In this modern western society, it’s hard to find someone without symptoms of digestive disorders.
The liver gallbladder cleanse is beneficial as it could remove all or some of the the toxins stored in the liver, since it has small capacity to store toxins and is a solid organ. It’s like a metabolic factory that has hundreds of different functions, such as breaking and metabolising toxins in the body. The liver is the “factory” so the “warehouse” of the toxins are the bowels (Kraats 2010). The bowels are hollow organs, and with its convoluted surface the actual internal surface area is around the size of half a tennis court! That is a huge area to store toxins and bacteria. If the bowels are ignored and build up with toxins, it could manifest into many disorders.
Increasing fibre in the diet may not necessarily be well tolerated, as it could result in increased bloating, wind, loose bowels, abdominal cramps and pain.
The cleanse will produce around 5-20 bowel motions depending on the blockage and condition of the liver, gallbladder and colon.
It is a simple cleanse and has no adverse side-effects, although some may find drinking the Epsom salts rather unpleasant. However, after the cleanse you should feel more energised, cleaner, less bloated, and if you suffer from gallstones, the cleanse may assist in removing them. Do not be surprised to see stones in the stools.
