For those who want to skip all this: drink an ounce of lemon juice mixed with an ounce of extra virgin olive oil daily for two weeks…
Ok…More serious stuff:
For three days leading up to the cleanse, drink a glass of apple juice every two hours.
1/2 Cup Olive Oil Extra Virgin
1 Big grapefruit – squeezed or 100% grapefruit juice (canned is fine)
4 tablespoon EPSOM salts
3 cups water You can substitute 3 cups water (that is used in this recipe to dissolve Epsom salt) with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit juice, or apple juice – that way you will not feel unpleasant taste of Magnesium Sulphate (epsom salts)
Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day.
Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they could prevent success.
Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal with fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves or honey (no butter or milk), baked potato or other vegetables with salt only. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.
2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink anything heavy (water or tea is fine to drink) after 2 o’clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tbs. in 3 cups water (or juice) and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings, 3/4 (three fourths) cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only). [ You can substitute 3 cups water with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit juice, or apple juice, it tastes better .]
6:00 PM. Drink one serving 3/4 (three fourths cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts. (goes down faster and easier through a drinking straw) If you did not prepare this ahead of time, mix 1 tbs. in 3/4 (three fourth) cup water now. You may add 1/8 (one eight) tsp. vitamin C powder to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil and grapefruit out to warm up.
8:00 PM. Repeat by drinking another 3/4 (three fourths) cup of Epsom salts.You haven’t eaten since two o’clock, but you won’t feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.
9:45 PM. Pour 1/2 (half) cup (measured) olive oil into the pint jar add 3/4 cup grapefruit juice. Add this to the olive oil. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only grapefruit juice does this). Now visit the bathroom one or more time, even if it makes you late for your ten o’clock drink. Don’t be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.
10:00 PM. Drink the olive oli/grapefruit potion you have mixed. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. Drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes. Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don’t. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time. Don’t clean up the kitchen.
As soon as the drink is down walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!).
Go to sleep, you may fail to get stones out if you don’t.
Upon awakening take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea wait until it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don’t take this potion before 6:00 am.
Expect diarrhea in the morning.
2 Hours Later. Take your fourth (the last) dose of Epsom salts. You may go back to bed again. After 2 More Hours you may eat. Start with fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.
( Note: get Oral Epsom Salts from your pharmacist)…
