During a liver cleanse, the liver is gently encouraged to improve its excretory function in order to eliminate old bile trapped inside the bile ducts and to achieve a complete and regular evacuation of the gallbladder. It is a delicate process involving the use of medicinal plants, supplements, mineral salts, oils, and certain foods.

Liver cleansing achieves the following objectives:

  • First, the complete drainage and elimination of accumulated toxins, cholesterol, and other fractions of fat.
  • Second, proper bile flow and improved motility of the gallbladder through dietary measures.

What happens during the process of detoxifying
and cleansing the liver?

The first phase of treatment involves several days spent preparing the body, using dietary measures and natural remedies, in order to soften the toxic and fatty materials in the liver. This helps them acquire a more liquid consistency, so that they can be expelled afterward and so that the bile ducts can dilate and relax.

At the end of this preparation phase, the gallbladder and liver ducts are encouraged to make strong and rapid muscular contractions to expel their contents by observing a day of fasting accompanied by the taking of certain oils and mineral salts. This daylong purging is profound and important, and it is not easy. It involves spending literally several hours in the toilet evacuating frequent jets of greenish, warm, foul-smelling liquid.

This amount of digestive activation can be tiring. It can irritate the anus and lead to a sensation of weakness. This is to be expected, and for this reason it is recommended to carry out liver cleansing on a day free of appointments and to dedicate time almost exclusively to this.

The bile expelled during cleansing days is very dense and greasy, and has the consistency of clay or dark green “butter.” After entering the intestines, it becomes knitted together (gets harder) and acquires various round forms similar to stones, which have to be evacuated and expelled within hours.

There is always a risk of recycling and reabsorbing these mobilized liver toxins; also, the “stones” are very heavy and sticky and often stay in the colon for a while; for this reason it is very important to carry out a good cleansing of the intestine (colonic hydrotherapy being the optimal measure) after the liver cleansing.

Sometimes patients observe multiple deposits of green bile in their toilets, and they even take photos of them! I have a gallery of such images on my computer in prepared for an artistic exhibition that will be very original. Frequently, worms of all sizes are dragged out by the purge, along with fatty froth with the consistency of whipped cream and much sand. Some surprised patients, who are curious about their inner contents, fish out the little balls of bile and display them on a porcelain plate or in a sieve, comparing them to a euro coin or other object (all this I have documented, but anonymously, of course).
