I just came across this webpage, which discusses using coffee amongst other things to help promote bile flow.
I love the moderate use of coffee but abstain from it as most complementary health practitioners, including Traditional Chinese Medicine say to avoid it. I'd love to hear your feelings on drinking coffee when the liver / gallbladder are impaired and when there is also already a danger that the body is too acidic. Thanks and bless you.

Hi, I'm new to this forum but wanted to share a liver cleanse recipe with you guys. 1 cup of shredded carrots, 1 tsp of virgin olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Eat throughout the whole week along with your regular food intake. It really does work!

I used some of the information in two of Dr Sandra Cabot's books to help clean my liver. 6 years ago, my liver enzymes were 3 times higher than normal and an ultrasound showed a fatty liver and 2 large gallstones. I added carrot, celery, and parsley juice to my breakfast along with a large glass of fresh lime juice/water for a month. I cut out red meat and dairy for about 4 months and took vitamin E, milk thistle, and taurine daily for about 6 months. 9 months after starting it, my liver enzymes were in the middle of the normal range and I haven't done anything to cleanse my liver since then. 6 years later, my liver enzymes are 10% of what they were when I started the supplements and juicing and I haven't had a gallbladder attack either. I hope this helps someone.

Dear truth be told, I'm wondering of you have tried a dietary approach to your condition. I'm not a Dr but it is my understanding that carbohydrates such as grains, sugar, alcohol are hard on the liver and that it is possible to heal your liver with good fat: Eggs, calves liver, coconut oil, avocado, butter, olive oil, cod liver oil, etc. I know others have done apple/beet/carrot juice fasting with good results for liver support. Lecithin is another liver cure you can read about on here which is somewhat related to the fat cleanse.
There is also a section on this website devoted to treating a variety of viruses and I think you may find those options helpfull too. Some off the top of my head are colloidal or ionic silver, iodine, food grade h2o2, olive leaf, apple cider vinegar, aspirin, essiac tea, raw garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli peppers etc. - lots of virus busting liver supporting options if you troll around this website a bit.
My dads old drinking buddy swears he cured himself of hep c by quitting alcohol and drinking kambucha tea instead. Probiotics are also good if you have ever taken antibiotics, since so much of our immunity comes from the friendly gut bacteria (they make vitamins for us, fight off infection, digest our food etc). Good bacteria like healthy fats like those mentioned above while bad bacteria and yeasts like sugars. Apple cider vinegar and kambucha tea are both good to support a healthy digestive tract but there are many options for getting good bacteria from probiotic yogurt, kefir, kimchee, and saurkrout.
Are you taking a muli mineral and multivitamin? Do you get enough sunlight to make vitamin d. I know jaundice in babies responds very well to light treatment which means the liver needs vitamin d to regenerate. Other viral diseases tend to respond to sun treatment as well. Dr Mercola highly recommends getting enough sun to keep your immunity up.
Two other websites I find infinitely helpful are westonaprice.org and mercola.com. I also like Dr Myhill's website for specific nutritional recommendations.
I'm wishing you well again soon and I hope some of this information proves useful.

Essential Oils cleaned out blocked liver:
I am grateful for this site and am hoping this will help someone. Applying an essential oil blend externally 3 times cleared my liver. (I DO NOT SELL THEM). After that I could actually take supplements without them making my face numb. Now I take huge doses of Niacin for my anxiety and life is becoming wonderful again.
A while back I was in really bad shape - for a year I couldn't take more than a quarter of the adult dose of a quality multivitamin (took a while to find one I could tolerate at all) or my face would go numb. Auto-immune diagnosis and major issues.
One day I tried an essential oil blend designed to help digestion - ingredients were Ginger, Peppermint, Tarragon, Fennel, Caraway, Coriander, and Anise essential oils. (called Digestzen). I rubbed 2 or 3 drops over my liver area 3 times in one day. The next day I had pain in ALL joints in my body - this took a week to clear. I also saw something that looked like chopped straw in my poop.
After a few months I got brave enough to try again - this time I applied only once 2 drops over my liver. I got a little pain in my liver this time.
A week later I tried again 2 drops applied over my liver and it was all good.
I read later that the straw stuff is called chaff and is crystallised stuff that literally blocks the tiny ducts up and was leaving the liver. My liver was literally blocked up. (So nothing was working very well)
Since then I have also started using Chinese bitters. I am now able to take supplements in orthomolecular doses without fear of tremors all night or numb face, etc.
Life if fabulous. Keep asking the universe/god for help and it will come - love to all and I hope this helps someone.

Does anybody know if using a heating pad over your liver when sleeping will raise liver enzyme levels? Thank you.
I discovered our whole body is circulatory, over 80,000 miles of blood vessels and the LIVER is loaded with them also and with it being a cleansing mechanism of the body, if it gets sick, toxic and unhealthy this causes a back-up into the body. 2010, when I almost lost my twin sister, I got blessed to hear about a 37 yr old with 80 yr old blood vessels and now he is 74 with blood vessels of a 12 yr old. You can bet his liver is clean. This is a Doctor and it is validated by Nobel prize and both the doctor and a heart institute use it on every single patient. My sister lives today with no more congestive heart failure and is without meds. Be blessed

I found at a very young age that my liver has always been at risk; I found recently after many years of pain in lower back and being way under weight but severe swelling through out my whole body, was caused from mold, I was also surprised to find that 90% of the USA has chances of mold build up because of the continuous dampness year round causes this mold, the worse case scenario is that doctors nation wide are treating it as an infection which adds insult to injury because most antibiotics are made from mold.
Recently I almost had a heart attack because the antibiotic ciproflaxine made my chest feel like it had been crushed. I think from now on God willing I plan on not seeing a doctor unless absolutely needed. I later found that I had neck surgery that was not needed. How sad a world we live in.
I seriously feel that it's herbs that are holding me together and trusting totally in my own instincts and this website. Thank you Ted and other's that have shared their much needed input, it's the glue that holds us all together.
God bless us all, Peace

Hello, I was just wondering if it's good or bad to swallow stones when eating fruits, ie, grapes, watermelon...I thought it is good as normally stones contain minerals and vitamins, but is it ok for the liver. I am not talking about juicing or blending whole fruits, but swallowing watermelon seeds while eating pieces of fruit.
HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN,,,,,,,,,,, as all know I's kinda wild and strange. Anyways, me and my Tractor Driver are starting our annual liver and gall bladder flush this week and want to invite you to come along with us. The procedure is from Dr. Hulda Clark's book as the following URL explains.
She also recommends that you drink apple juice daily for a week prior to the actual flush procedure. We will be drinking a glass of apple juice before every meal preceding our start on Friday night. The procedure is done Friday night and all is completed Saturday mid-morning. There is very little cost, a few lemons, a little epsom salt and a little olive oil. You can follow Dr. Clark's protocol but I will be posting all week and walk you through what takes place on Friday night and Saturday morning.
You will be amazed as to what your flashlight shows you in the toilet on Saturday morning. We have done this flush for about the last 10 years so we no longer get stones, we just get what is called chaff. If this is your first Rodeo then you will likely get stones of every color in the rainbow. You liver will thank you for getting rid of lots of toxins as you should feel much better.
I'm serious about this. This is your chance to clean out your liver with the whole world available to help you. I will post daily on things that may ease any reservations. In Dr Clark's book, she says she gets credit for this flush, but it has been done for thousands of years.

For clearing liver stones, is it enough to do coconut oil with lemons everyday? If not, and I do the olive oil with citrus cleanse, are there any substitutes for the apple and cranberry juice, as I have acid problems. Finally, a general diet question. Is it okay to take flax oil, whey drink and mushrooms, or will these adversely affect my PH?
I was recently having upper abdominal pain and had a lot of testing done. The only thing found was a 1.5 inch liver cyst in the exact spot where I was having pain and bloating. The doctor told me "these don't cause symptoms" however with what I have been reading I know it is not true. Surgery on the liver is not very safe and I am desperate for a remedy.
Liver Cyst Remedies
I have over thirty of these on and in my liver... they called them simple liver cysts at first. I had the big ones, over a liter of liquid drained and they refilled that week. I had them surgically removed from the surface and new ones formed. They seem to be autoimmune.
Would love to hear some good testimonies and remedies ANYONE...?
