3 Day Love your Liver Cleanse

Aloha, the following is information on  how to do a 3 day cleanse and liver flush.  I put together this protocol for internal body cleansing based on my my personal cleaning experiences and what I learned from my teachers: Dr. Christopher and my Hawaiian Herbal teacher on Kauai, Kumu Ohai.

Love-Your-Liver-300x300

Why Cleanse?

This cleanse that is proposed, is a traditional cleanse that has been used by many people in many forms, but the simple foundation is there to:

  • Clean the mucus/ inflammation out of the body, which is the source that develops: tumors, cysts, etc., bringing about “old age” prematurely. 

  • Provide you with  herbal corrective aid and a natural process to facilitate the healing, alkalizing and regeneration of the body system.

When to Cleanse?

Beings at all ages and stages, can benefit from internal body cleansing. Especially when one is feeling sick, lethargic, is experiencing pain in the body or dis-ease.

Fasting is historically commonplace as it has been a part of spiritual practice for millennia. But modern science has confirmed there are many good reasons for fasting, including the following: 

  • Flushing the lymphatic system, and replacing with organic juice, & water

  • Signals your body to start burning fat rather then carbohydrates / sugar, therefore reducing insulin levels

  • Gives your body a rest, allows for the body’s enzyme system to focus on detoxifying and breaking down toxins in the body quickly and efficiently without the job of heavy food digestion. The digestive system can drain energy needed for healing, repair and general maintenance of the body. Therefore, it makes sense to give it a vacation once in awhile.

An ancient tradition

The art of fasting is an ancient tradition practiced for thousands of years for curing illness of all kinds, rejuvenation, clarity and decision making, cleansing and strengthening.

Kumu Ohai spoke about how in ancient Hawaii it was the warriors that practiced cleansing  protocols to not only make their bodies strong but the purify their minds and allow for a closer connection to Spirit/ God.

The Hawaiian people, follow a Lunar calendar, to plan events. In in case of cleansing / fasting, it has historically been practiced around the Muku / New Moon.    It has been found to be  beneficial to begin your cleanse 1 day before the new moon on the moon of Mauli with the final steps falling the morning after the dark moon. This way you can benefit from the quiet, darkness and stillness that the new moon brings.

Self-care and sovereignty 

As much as possible during your cleanse be by yourself.  Be gentle on yourself. Keep your head and your feet/hands warm. Do not to over-book yourself.  Rest, pule/pray and listen for the whispering in your ear and notice how fantastic you feel after just a few days!  

I invite you to allow this cleanse to be a catalyst for sustainable change in your diet and lifestyle.

How does this work?

The 5 natural channels of elimination are the kidneys, liver, lungs, bowels, and skin.  We will focus on all of these to increase our cleanse with special attention to the master cleansing organ: The Liver.

The skin will move the toxins through perspiration, so be sure to use a loofah or do dry skin brushing daily, or twice per day. Also, make sure you are all warm and toasty during these 3 days. Sweating is good – so hot baths, steam, are very good!

The kidneys excrete the end products of food and body metabolism from the liver.  

The bowels eliminate not only the food waste, but also waste matter, known as body waste, in the form of used-up cells and tissues. 

The liver is the cleanser and filter of the bloodstream, we will be giving it a break from having to process anything other then organic juice, water and nourishing & detoxifying herbs. We will also be giving it a flush and oil change. 

The Plan:

Supplies that you Need ( all Organic )

  • 54 ounces of Prune Juice

  • 8 ounces of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 8 ounces of citrus juice

  • 3 gallons of Unfiltered Apple Juice

  • 3 gallons of Distilled/ Purified Water

  • Natural Hair Bristle Brush or Loofah sponge (for dry brushing)

  • Epsom Salt for bath & Chickweed (for detox baths) (no Epsom Salt bath with high blood pressure) chickweed is an alternative

  • Castor Oil

  • Wool / flannel or clean undyed cotton for castor oil pack

  • Hot water bottle / heating pad ( I suggest getting the combination: enema, water bottle, douche )

  • Ice pack

  • Liver Gallbladder ND  (ND the , stands for nano-derived which means the herbs are mixed and cured in a probiotic fermented culture).

  • Bill-Ven

  • Green Coffee / Organic Roasted Coffee

  • Enema Bag/ Hot water bottle

The Schedule

  • 8 oz of  organic prune juice – 1st thing every morning

  • 8 oz of purified water 30 minutes after that

  • 8oz of organic unfiltered Apple Juice 

Ever hour you will alternate between water and apple juice up to a gallon of water and a gallon of juice per day.

Example:

  • 6AM: 16oz Prune Juice

  • 6:30AM – 7AM: 8oz of water

  • 7AM- 7:30AM: 8oz of apple juice

  • 7:30AM – 8AM: 8oz of water

  • 8AM- 8:30AM: 8oz of apple juice …   repeat this schedule until at least 7PM

Herbal Protocol

  • Put 1 teaspoon of the Liver-ND in your apple juice 3 times a day and increase by a teaspoon each day. ExampleDay one: 1 teaspoon 3x’s a day. Day 2: 2 teaspoons 3x’s a day, Day 3: 3 teaspoons 3x’s a day

  • Put 1 teaspoon of the Gallbladder- ND in your water 3 x’s a day

  • Take 2 Billi-Ven 2x’s a day

  • Epsom Salts, Liver flush and Castor oil pack on eve of the 3rd night.

  • Am of the 4th day – Coffee Enema  

Side Effects

Breaking up mucus during the juice cleanse generally causes constipation, headaches, body aches, mood swings – typically on the 1st and 3rd day. Moving your bowels greatly helps with moving the toxins and those symptoms out. Remember your body can live for months without “food” and you are “feeding” it organic juice and pure water. If you can’t get distilled water in a GLASS jug then as purified as you can get in a glass. No plastic bottled water during the cleanse. The idea is to give the liver a break from having to process anything but fresh juice and water 🙂

Use this program for 3/4 days, consecutively.  You will move 3 gallons of toxic lymph from the body and replace it with 3 gallons of juices and herbal tonics.  This will speed up the alkalizing of the system. The apple juice is beneficial as it contains both pectin which helps soften and void your bowels and malic acid which helps to open the bile ducts that run through your liver and begins to soften and release gall/liver stones.

A juice fast gives your organs of digestion a complete rest, while supplying your body with all the nutrition it needs to heal and undo all the wrong that has been done.   A juice fast thins your blood naturally giving your heart a rest while nourishing it and all the organs in your body.  

A juice fast is easier on body and mind then just water.  Plus it provides your body with enzymes, minerals, and vitamins throughout the fast.   A Juice fast is also easier because when you feel hungry you can drink more juice; in fact, the more juice you drink the better.   Dr. Christopher used to say: 

When it flows out of your ears you have had enough

If you get extremely hungry, you can have more apple juice, FRESH coconut water,  peppermint or ginger tea, detox tea or liver tonic tea.  It is best to pick one or two of the above and have up to three cups a day as one of your waters.  Warning: You are going to urinate a lot from all this fluid intake – flushing the kidneys & bladder.

The Liver Flush / Oil Change

At 6:00 P.M. take 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts dissolved into a 6 ounce glass of purified water and drink straight down.

At 8:00 P.M. repeat the Epsom Salt drink.  This is very important.

At 10:00 P.M. first, prepare a Castor Oil Pack with Organic Castor Oil and Organic Cotton / Flannel.

Then Juice citrus juice:  grapefruit is suggested.  Juice enough so that you have 6 ounces of liquid.  Mix this in a blender with 6 ounces Organic Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil.   Drink this mixture straight down. ( you might want to hold your nose ).

Unheated, cold pressed virgin olive oil replicates the oil that a healthy liver is mostly made up of. So this process is literately an oil change for your body!

After drinking the oil/ citrus mixture: Immediately go lay down on your right side and put the castor oil pack over your liver area (right side of the body at and just below the bottom rib.) Go to sleep if you can.  If you cannot sleep, Be sure to lay there for a minimum of 40 minutes – longer is better.

If you feel the urge to void your bowels, do so.

First thing the next morning, do a coffee enema.

Castor Oil Pack

Take a piece of white wool, pure cotton or flannel and soak it in castor oil ( castor oil is very think and gloppy so handle carefully. The piece of cloth should be large enough to cover your liver, which is right under your right side rib cage and then cover in plastic then place a think sheet or towel over the plastic and then a hot water bottle or heating pad for 45 minutes. Then 15 minutes cold with ice pack. Repeat the hot and then ice, as much as you feel called to, always ending with ice.  It’s important to end with the cold, to send all the blood back into the liver.

Green Coffee Enema

BENEFITS

  • TOXIN ELIMINATION – The major benefit of the coffee enema is to enhance elimination of toxins through the liver and promote the release of Gall / Liver stones.

  • CLEANSING – Coffee also acts as an astringent in the large intestine, helping clean the colon walls.

  • STIMULATES BILE FLOW – The coffee enema enhances digestion by increasing bile flow and removes toxins in the large intestine.

  • STIMULATES LIVER – Coffee enemas are particularly helpful for slow oxidizers.  Their liver activity is more sluggish and digestion is usually impaired.  Fast oxidizers may have more difficulty retaining the enema.

Breaking your fast / cleanse

To break your fast it is nice to have some apple sauce and a warm soup with well cooked  or pureed vegetables, and you can grate in some raw garlic, ginger turmeric… yum yum!

You should continue taking the Liver and Gallbladder ND’s ( just one teaspoon once a day ) tonic for 3 more days then on the 7th day take a rest. Depending on how your feeling will depend on the continuation of those herbs 🙂 Also refrain from taking any supplements other then the liver / Gallbladder ND and Billi-Ven during the first 3 days.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions and you can get most if not all the supplies at your local herb shop or online. I think it is awesome that you are doing this cleanse and taking back your health! Calling all warriors!

Aloha,

Ali G
