Why do a Liver Gallbladder Flush?

One of the most important things you can do for your health, according to many leading nutritional practitioners, is to do a series of Master Liver Gallbladder Flushes. Many of us have heard of this concept, and some may have even tried this before, but most have lacked the support, guidance, and adequate information to truly get the most out of this beneficial practice.

Here are just a few things that might be resolved by doing a series of Liver and Gallbladder cleanses:

1. Digestive problems (such as burping often, bloating, intestinal gas, stomach pain)
2. Food allergies and sensitivities
3. Chemical sensitivities (such as reactions to gasoline, cleaning agents, soaps, cosmetics, etc.)
4. Rashes, various kinds of skin problems
5. Eye problems (such as blurred vision, eye pain, decreasing eyesight, eye flutters or twitches, etc.)
6. Difficulty sleeping
7. Irritability, frequent anger, depression
8. Tendon or muscle problems (such as frequent sprains/strains, muscle injuries, delayed healing)
9. Swelling of the breasts
10. Menstrual problems (such as too little or too much blood flow, blood clotting, cramps)
11. Headaches (especially pain at the vertex of the head, and throbbing headaches). A headache of the gallbladder is most commonly over the right eye, at the temples or on one side of the head.)

The Liver in Chinese medicine is one of the most important organs in the body, and one of the organs that is most prone to stagnation due to our stressful and unhealthy lifestyles. The Liver is considered to be the General of the body, and when it is healthy, it keeps all our other organs running like a well oiled machine. Its functions include:

  • Ensuring smooth flow of blood and energy to all the other organs,
  • Storing and filtering/detoxifying blood
  • Making bile for the digestion of dietary fats
  • Eliminating excess hormones such as estrogen from the blood
  • Maintaining healthy water and electrolyte balance in out body fluids.
  • Aiding in the repair of diseased or damaged tissue.
  • Eliminating waste from environmental and food toxins

Stress and the Liver

The Liver is particularly susceptible to stress, to emotional distress, and to long term exposure to toxicity. A few of the key stress factors are listed below.

  • Fast paced lives
  • Fast foods
  • Hydrogenated oils
  • Food additives
  • Food processing Chemicals
  • Radiation
  • Environmental toxins
  • Pesticides, Herbicides, and Insecticides
  • Toxic Cleaning Compounds
  • Smog
  • Drugs and/or Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Chronic disease

Though this miraculous organ can function normally even when it has lost up to 2/3 of its efficiency, and can rebuild itself even when 80% has been destroyed, there are many consequences to an unhealthy or stagnant Liver that most of us experience regularly. When “the General” is not at its best, the rest of the organs become sluggish, lazy, or rebellious, according to Chinese medicine, and the symptoms that we experience may include the following:

Digestive problems
Frequent belching, bloating, or intestinal gas
Stomach pain
Rashes or skin problems
Headaches and throbbing headaches
Eye problems including: blurred vision, decreasing vision, eye pain, eye flutters or twitches, floaters
Irritability, depression or frequent anger
Difficulty sleeping, especially between 1am-3am
Menstrual problems, including too much or too little blood flow, cramping, clotting, and other PMS symptoms
Testicular problems
Yeast symptoms
Chemical sensitivities
Problems with tendons and connective tissues
Sexual organ dysfunctions and Low Libido

Springtime and Liver Cleansing

Traditionally, Spring time is the best season to care for and replenish the Liver, as its element, Wood, corresponds to the Spring season. We can take advantage of all the fresh, local, green healing foods to support the Liver in detoxifying, cleansing, and restoring its optimal function. Foods to look for in the farmers market that support the Liver in its seasonal healing process are dark, leafy, green, bitter or sour, and of course, organic or verifiable pesticide free. Below you’ll find a couple of recipes for one of our favorite spring time ingredients to boost and detoxify the Liver, Dandelion greens!

While food is always at the foundation of our healing programs here at Alchemy, we are also always looking for the best way to support lasting health, to balance all the energetic systems in the body, and to empower our community to take back the reigns on their own healing journey. That’s why we’ve decided to offer this Liver Gallbladder flush as our May Cleanse program, with the help and collaboration of Premier Research Labs. They have developed a protocol and accompanying herbal products that utilizes the wisdom of the ancient healing traditions combined with the advances in modern medicine and nutrition.

Liver Gallbladder Cleanse at Alchemy Arts Center

You are cordially invited to join us starting the week of May 21st as we begin a 4-6 week preparation for a Master Liver Gallbladder Flush following the principles of the Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush by Andreas Moritz, the leading expert in the field, and with the support of Senior Trainers from Premier Research Labs. The program will include all your herbal supplements to prepare the body for this flush, and the accompanying education and healing treatments to understand the process and get the maximum benefit from this healing practice. By softening the Gallstones, for example, (which are a major factor in chronic health issues, and present in nearly everyone who has been eating in America for more than a few years) we facilitate this cleanse in such a way as to make it more efficient, effective and easy on the body.

If you are interested in joining us, or have questions or concerns and would like to see if this program is right for you, please call to schedule a Complimentary Wellness Consultation with Eric Baumgartner L.Ac.
