Liver and Gall Bladder Cleanse
(How to get rid of gallstones)

See some pics and more information on these stones at

I didn't think much about this until the wife and I did such a cleanse and a whole handful of 
these stones came out, some like large aquarium gravel, some as big as raisins. I guess she 
made a believer out of me.  See the pics below. 2nd pic is her stones on a 2nd cleanse.
3rd pic is my stones first cleanse, quite a different consistency.
Stones keep showing up all day long, not just on the first poop. 


This isn't food particles. These are softened stones removed from the gallbladder and liver.
Many are very small, but some are pretty good sized. I recommend to leave at least two weeks 
between cleanses to allow a maximum number of stones from the rear of the liver to move 
forward and also give the liver enough time and energy for repairing the damaged sites before 
having another 'surgery.' It would be a waste to cleanse any earlier than that. Once a month would 
be ideal.
This is a Russian recipe for getting rid of stones from the gallbladder and liver. This 
is pretty painless. A second recipe and more detail of the process can be found further down. 

You've all heard of gallstones, right? Little rocks, cholesterol deposits, that develop in your 
gallbladder that require surgery to remove and oftentimes you lose your gallbladder in the 
process. Your gallbladder is not an extra body part you don't need.  It makes bile which is a 
necessary component of the digestion process to handle the fat we eat. Think of bile as the 
dishwashing soap that emulsifies the grease.

My wife has been after me for some time to go on a liver-gallbladder cleanse with her to get 
rid of these. I told her show me and I will then do it as a three day fast and an enema every 
morning to flush out the waste in the intestines as part of it is not my idea of a picnic. Well, 
she did, and some of what came out of her were as big as large raisins.
Most were the size of aquarium gravel or BB's. That scared me. But she got a recipe from 
Russia that may even be easier to use than the second one I have posted below. 
Quite simply you drink nothing but apple juice for three days. No water, no orange juice, no milk, 
no food; nothing but apple juice. The sugar in the apple juice keeps you from getting hungry as 
you drink it once or more times per hour 4-8 ounces at a whack. You can drink as much as you 
want, even a gallon a day. This softens the crystalized deposits so they can be easily ejected 
without blocking any passages. 

You go to Walmart and buy a rubber hot water bottle with 
enema tube for a about five bucks. Each morning you give yourself a warm water enema to try 
and clean the colon out as much as possible. Starting with day one. This means each morning 
you shove this tube up your butt, let the water flow inl. Do this at least four times in a row every 
morning. A little oil on the anus opening helps. As you are able to hold more water, you may 
want to elevate the torso then turn a little onto the right side to get the water across the 
transverse colon and down into the ascending colon. Then you can put your fingers 
under the right side of your belly and jostle the water like a washing machine. A second or third 
quart of water may be needed for deeper cleansing. Have extra warm water available  ahead 
of time so you don't have to waste time while refilling the bag.

Mark Rothencranz has put out a quickie video that should clear this part up. You can watch it at

Prepare two cups; one of olive or avocado oil, and one full cup of fresh squeezed lemon or grapefruit juice.
Now this doesn't really taste as bad as it sounds. If I can get it down; you can get it down.

At 7pm on the 3rd day you start taking 3 tablespoons of olive oil with 3 tablespoons of fresh 
squeezed lemon juice every fifteen minutes for the next two and a half to three hours; so like 
10 to twelve times you drink this mixture over a three hour period.  You do put the 3 tablespoons 
of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice in the same glass, stir it up and chug it.

Use a timer so it is every 15 minutes.   I thought it would taste awful but the lemon juice mixed 
with the olive oil goes down pretty easy in a couple swallows. No aftertaste of the olive oil if you 
chug it.  I was going to use a chaser but found it unnecessary.  You have to lay down on your side 
with a hot water bottle filled with hot water to warm your liver up during this three hours.  Your liver 
is just below your rib cage on your right side. You have to stay down for that three hour period. No 
water. No other fluids. You can go pee quickly but that's the only up time you get.

You may have a bowel movement that night or you may not until the next morning.
I didn't have to go until the next morning, because after three days of fasting and enemas 
there's nothing left in there to go.  When you do, you should have a  7" diameter x 5" plastic 
container available you can put in the toilet to catch what comes out if you want to see the 
stones yourself. Who wouldn't want to see the fruits of their labor? Stones will come 
out with every bowel movement the whole next day, little ones first, then they get bigger. Let 
them dry out and they become hard just like rocks.  You should follow this up with the same 
procedure two weeks later to make sure you get them all. Then you should do this several times 
a year, like quarterly. Even monthly is good.

You will notice some weight reduction occurs after you clean your liver. When bile becomes 
more available to handle the fat in your diet, it doesn't end up on your love handles but gets 
processed and shipped out as it was intended by God's design. Fats make you sluggish for 
as long there is not sufficient bile available to handle the fat. Once the bile ducts are clear bile 
flow and bile production return to normal and fat digestion also becomes easy again, provided 
that all the other factors that influence bile production, such getting to sleep before 10 or 10:30 pm, 
drinking enough water, avoiding stimulants, etc., clearing emotional stress, etc. are taken care 
of. The liver loses its sluggishness when it is free from congestion. It fully repairs itself and 
does not require any external help to do that. Be sure and read all of the next section as it 
covers more necessary information.

(Helpful when doing the liver/gall bladder cleanse, but not necessary)  Drink at least 8 oz. apple juice daily for 7 days prior to doing the cleanse to help soften stones and open ducts.  Especially if you are facing gall bladder surgery, don't take time for the apple juice. Also make sure your colon is moving at least once daily and preferable once for each meal. If not try using Multi-Clean found at or call John Austin 801-776-3255 to order this product. 
- Don't take any vitamins or medicines
- Eat a no fat breakfast and lunch.  Rather than eating, I normally drink lemonade made from fresh a squeezed lime or lemon and “pure” B-grade maple syrup from the Health Food Store. This gives you plenty of energy and is nourishing. Or you can eat a baked potato or other vegetables with salt only, or fresh squeezed vegetable juice. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.
- Drink plenty of water and fluids
2 PM
- Do not eat or drink anything after 2 PM
- Prepare your Epsom Salts Drink - 4 Tbs. in 3 cups of water, mix in a glass jar.
6 PM
- Drink 3/4 c of Epson Salts drink, add freshly squeezed lemon juice to cut the taste of the epson salts  - best to drink this mixture at room temperature. It is okay to rinse your mouth with plain water afterward.
- Take out the olive oil and grapefruit to make sure they are room temperature.
8 PM
- Drink 3/4 cup of Epsom Salts drink.
- Get dressed and ready for bed.
9:45 PM
- Pour ½ cup (measured) olive oil into a pint jar. Squeeze the grapefruit by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with a fork. You should have at least ¾ cup (more is even better). Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery. (only fresh juice will work).
- Visit bathroom and clear your bowel.
(½ cup of oil has been used successfully, without the addition of grapefruit. You can substitute the grapefruit juice with that of a freshly squeezed lemon or after drinking the oil, you can suck on a lemon to help keep it down.)
10 PM
- Drink the olive oil mixture while standing up.  Down mixture in 5 minutes or less. 
- Immediately afterwards either lie flat on your back with your head toward the top of your pillow or lie on your right side in a fetal position. Keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes, then go to sleep.
Upon Awakening but not before 6:00 AM
- Drink 3/4 c. of Epson Salts drink (with the lemon juice for taste)
2 Hours Later
- Drink 3/4 c. of Epson Salts drink (with the lemon juice for taste)
2 Hours Later
-Start by drinking fruit juice
- Eat some fresh fruit 1/2 hour later
- After an hour you may eat normally, but avoid rich or heavy foods.
You will likely pass stones of many sizes and colors (often green) that will float in the toilet.  There should be no pain in passing the stones through the bowels.  I have done this many times and always pass some amount of stones, which means my liver and gall bladder are cleaner, but still congested.  Thus, I will keep doing cleanses a few times each year.
How did you do?
Expect diarrhea in the morning. (This is not the uncontrollable type). Use a flashlight if needed to look for gallstones in the toilet. Look for the green kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones and not food residue. (I didn’t need a light and mine were large enough to see without a problem). Only bile from the liver is pea green. The bowel movement sinks but gallstones float because of the cholesterol inside. Count them all, whether tan or green. You will need to total 2000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies or bursitis or upper back pains permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days, but as the stones from the rear travel forward, they will give you symptoms again. You may repeat cleanses at two-week intervals. Never cleanse when you are ill,
Sometimes the bile ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones. This may appear as “chaff” floating on the top of the toilet bowl water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of white crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging stones.
How safe is the liver cleanse? It is very safe. My opinion is based on over 500 cases, including many persons in their seventies and eighties. None went to the hospital. None reported pain. However it can make you feel quite ill for one or two days afterwards, although in every one of these cases the maintenance parasite program had been neglected. This is why the instructions direct you to complete the parasite and kidney rinse programs first.
You have taken out your gallstones without surgery! I like to think I have perfected this recipe, but I certainly cannot take credit for its origin. It was invented hundreds, if not thousands of years ago. Thank you herbalists!
This procedure contradicts many modern medical viewpoints. Gallstones are thought to be formed in the gallbladder, not the liver. They are thought to be few, not thousands in number. They are not linked to pains other than gallbladder attacks. It is easy to understand why this is thought to be true. By the time you have acute pain attacks, some stones are in the gallbladder, they are big enough and sufficiently calcified to see on X-ray, and have caused inflammation there. When the gallbladder is removed the acute attacks are gone, but the bursitis and other pains and digestive problems remain.
The truth is self-evident. People, who have had their gallbladder surgically removed, still get plenty of green bile-coated stones, and anyone who cares to dissect their stones can see that the concentric circle and crystals of cholesterol match the textbook pictures of “gallstones” exactly.
Andreas Moritz, author of the "Amazing Liver Cleanse" answered an email of mine regarding questions I had on liver/gallbladder cleansing. I thought folks might find it helpful.
In my new edition of the liver cleanse book (it is about three times as large) I also recommend Gold Coin Grass for difficult cases. It is also important to do the colonics, particularly the one after the liver cleanse. I have had quite a few people pass more stones with the colonic than during the actual liver flush. This was due to spastic areas in thecolon that blocked the release of the stones. So make sure to always finish off with a colonic within 3 days after the liver cleanse. Almost every person passes more stones this way. There are always a few stones that get trapped in the colon, even in healthy colons.
I will answer your questions in the sequence you have asked them.
1. Unless your liver and gallbladder are completely clean, old symptoms can return, not all of them and not as intense, but they can return. During a liver cleanse the liver can get rid of only those stones that are closest to the two main bile ducts that exit the liver. This allows more bile flow for a couple of days, relieves symptoms and improves energy, but as the bile flows better also more stones from the rear parts of the liver begin moving toward these two main ducts. This once again blocks the bile flow and causes the same or similar symptoms.
However, the liver as such begins to improve and begin to repair those damaged areas where bile ducts had been blocked before. To permanently get rid of chronic problems, such as backaches, both organs must be cleared of all stones. My partner, for example, passed a 2 1/2 inch calcified gallstone from her gallbladder during her 9th cleanse, followed by 100 smaller but equally calcified ones. Several hours later, all the pain in her body, which she suffered from for 30 years, vanished completely and never returned.
2. I recommend to leave at least two weeks between cleanses to allow a maximum number of stones from the rear of the liver to move forward and also give the liver enough time and energy for repairing the damaged sites before having another 'surgery.' It would be a waste to cleanse any earlier than that. Once a month would be ideal.
3. The oil and juice cannot turn into stones; the body cannot do that, not even a laboratory. Analysis of the stones shows that they consist of 90 percent cholesterol crystals. The cholesterol in olive is minimal and not sufficient to form any clumps.
Besides it is soluble cholesterol that is unable to coagulate. The reason why the liver can easily accommodate 4000-5000 stones is because of the huge biliary network. Instead of having bile occupying the space, bile stones begin to occupy that space. Of course, the bile ducts dilate because the stones are relatively large in comparison with the normal diameter of a smaller bile duct. This causes the typical enlargement of the liver among people with chronic health problems. In fact most people, even children, in the Industrialized world have enlarged livers (which is now considered normal). If a person has 20,000 stones, he actually has a fatty, enlarged liver, completely white on the ultrasound picture.
Also, when the liver and gallbladder are cleared of all stones, no more stones are released. If stones were formed from olive oil, this would continue to be the case even after the liver is clean. But this isn't so. After my 12th cleanse I had no more stones.
When I did a 13th cleanse 4 years later, I still had no stones, not surprising given my diet and lifestyle. And I had released over 3,500. All stones were packed with bacteria that produced a horrendous smell. Olive oil is bacteria-static and therefore does not support living bacteria. Bacteria only go where there is decaying organic matter. Anyone who says that olive oil turns into stones has no knowledge of basic biochemistry and digestive functions.
4. The liver loses its sluggishness when it is free from congestion. It fully repairs itself and does not require any external help to do that. How to avoid gallstones from being formed again can be taken from this book. How to live a healthy lifestyle and eat balanced diet according to one's body type is dealt with in my book "The Key to Health and Rejuvenation." It is a very large and comprehensive book.

5. Fats make you sluggish for as long there is not sufficient bile available to handle the fat. Once the bile ducts are clear bile flow and bile production return to normal fat digestion also becomes easy again, provided that all the other factors that influence bile production, such as sleeping before 10 or 10:30 pm, drinking enough water, avoiding stimulants, etc., clearing emotional stress, etc. are taken care of."

Note from John Austin: I prefer using Baking Soda and water enemas to taking colonics.

Fill your bathtub with comfortably hot water. Put a towel on the floor next to your toilet so you won't slip on the floor when getting out to evacuate the enema. Rinse out your enema bag before using.

Then put one quart of mildly warm water mixed with 4-6 tsp. of baking soda into the bag. Hang the enema bag from a string attached to your shower head. Hold the tube up to the height of the bag and open the valve. Gradually lower the tube until water runs out. This will get the air out of the tube, then close the valve.

Then lay on your back in the bathtub and insert the tube and open the valve to allow water to run into your colon. When it starts to get uncomfortable stop. If your colon is extremely acid, the first time or two, the evacuation may be somewhat foamy as the acid creates foam when being neutralized by the baking soda.

As your food passes through the digestive tract, the stool is formed and pushed up through the right side (ascending colon) then goes across the top of your stomach (transverse colon) to the left side and exits down the left side (descending colon) to the anus.

Since the colon exits on the left side, as you are able to hold more water, you may want to elevate the torso then roll onto the right side to get the water across the transverse colon and down into the ascending colon. Then you can put your fingers under the right side of your belly and jostle the water like a washing machine.

A second or third quart of water may be needed for deeper cleansing. Have them mixed up in a pitcher ahead of time so you don't have to get out of the warm water while refilling the bag.

Additional info
1. Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, and Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

This is one of my favorites and easily one of the most effective remedies for kidney stones and the pain they cause. At the first symptom of stone pain, mix 2 oz of organic olive oil with 2 oz of organic lemon juice.

Drink it straight and follow with a 12 ounce glass of purified water. Wait 30 minutes. Then, squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon into 12 ounces of purified water, add 1 tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar and drink. Repeat the lemon juice, water and apple cider vinegar recipe every hour until symptoms improve.

2. Uva Ursi

Uva Ursi is a common folk remedy for kidney stones. Not only will it help fight off infection in the kidneys, but it may also help reduce pain and cleanse the urinary tract. 500mg three times a day is recommended for kidney stones.

3. Dandelion Root

Organic dandelion root is a great kidney tonic and cleanser. Taking up to 500 mg twice a day may be beneficial.

4. Kidney Beans

Kidney Beans for Kidney Stones

The shape of this bean may be indicative of its healing potential. An effective urinary home remedy for kidney stones, traditionally the pods were used as a medicinal tonic.

Try removing the beans from inside the pods, and then boil the pods in purified hot water for six hours. This liquid can be strained through cheese cloth, cooled and taken throughout the day for one day to ease kidney stone pain.

5. Horsetail

Horsetail tea is an effective natural remedy for kidney stones. Drink up to 3-4 cups of horsetail tea daily or 2 grams of the herb in capsule form daily.

6. Pomegranate Juice

We’ve all heard that pomegranates have many health benefits. But, more specifically, the seeds and juice of pomegranates can be considered another natural remedy for kidney stones. This may be related to their sourness and astringent properties. I prefer eating organic pomegranates and drinking freshly-squeezed pomegranate juice.

7. Magnesium

Studies show that people with recurrent kidney stones who took magnesium supplements had a 92.3 percent improvement rate in reduction of kidney stones. 300 mg of magnesium orotate is recommended daily for prevention and reduction of stones.

8. Organic Celery

Celery for Kidney Stones

Celery in vegetable form and celery seed are great urine-promoters and kidney tonics. Regular use of celery seed, as a spice or as a tea, may prevent kidney stone formation.

9. Basil

A kidney tonifier, basil tea can be taken throughout the day for overall kidney health. If you have kidney stones, try taking one teaspoon each of basil juice with raw honey daily for up to six months. It’s believed that folk remedies with pure basil juice can help induce stone expulsion from the urinary tract.

10. Change in Diet

Unhealthy food intake is a primary cause of kidney stones. Cut down on the amount of soda and energy drinks you consume. Avoid processed foods and alcoholic beverages. Add more fruits and veggies to your diet, especially those listed above.

11. Bonus! Inversion Table

It sounds odd, but some research suggests using an inversion table can help pass stone fragments after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, in short, is when a targeted shock wave is sent through the body to break up stones. It seems that inversion therapy helps the body push out the stones.

I also recommend reading the book "The Green Body Cleanse" to learn how to avoid kidney stone forming foods and beverages.

Remember that the remedies listed above are not intended to replace medical care. If you’re experiencing a lot of pain from kidney stones, see your doctor immediately. For optimal health, I recommend performing a colon cleanse, liver and gallbladder cleanse, chemical and heavy metal cleanse and even a harmful organism cleanse at least 1-2 times a year.
