As I shared in my previous stories, my health recovery plateaued after 2 years of fighting severe fibromyalgia pain with Traditional Chinese Medicine; although my conditions were no longer critical, I was struggling to no end with a long list of mysterious and chronic symptoms, from mild pain to PMS. After I took my anxiety and insomnia under control, I decided it was the right time to start a series of liver and gallbladder flushes in 2015, following the protocols in Andreas Moritz’s book, “The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush”.
Day 1, before 2pm: You are not allowed to eat anything containing fat or protein, because fat and protein will trigger the release of bile. The goal is to save up the bile to be released all at once to flush out the gallstones. You shouldn’t starve yourself, so be sure to eat a filling breakfast and lunch, such as oatmeal, banana, steamed potato and yam, steamed broccoli, apple, berries, etc. Day 1, after 2pm: You are not allowed to eat foods, but you can and should still drink water as needed. Day 1, 6pm: Dissolve 4 tbsp Epsom salt into 3 cups of filtered water, then divide up into 4 equal portions. Each portion is 3/4 cup. Drink the first Epsom salt drink. Day 1, 8pm: Drink the second Epsom salt drink. Day 1, 9:45pm: Ideally you should have had a bowel movement by now. Squeeze the grape fruits to make 3/4 cup of fresh grapefruit juice. Mix the grapefruit juice with 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil. Day 1, 10pm: Drink the grapefruit and olive oil mixture and lie down immediately. Try to go to sleep. Day 2, 6:30am (or whenever you wake up): Drink the third Epsom salt drink. Day 2, 8:30am (or 2 hours after the previous step): Drink the fourth Epsom salt drink. Day 2, 10:30am (or 2 hours after the previous step): You may start to eat again.
My list of discomforts before I began the liver and gallbladder flush ran long. I had all the usual symptoms of fibromyalgia, including sore muscles, achy joints, digestive issues, chronic fatigue, frequent flus, poor quality of sleep; I also had a chronic yeast infection and suffered from serious PMS, and all of my fibromyalgia symptoms would worsen during the 2 weeks before menstruation.
How to Do the Liver and Gallbladder Flush.
I also avoided the liver and gallbladder flush during menstruation, as I wanted my body to handle only 1 major event at a time. My early flushes are between 1 and 2 months apart; as my symptoms reduced, I would wait for 3 months in between flushes. It took me about 2 years of doing the liver and gallbladder flush to feel my normal self again.

The key measure isn’t whether we still get stones with each flush, but how healthy we feel. After I eliminated most of my symptoms, I went on a schedule of doing a flush every 3 to 6 months for maintenance. I learned to be in tune with the sensations inside my body too – when my liver and gallbladder are congested, I could feel the pressure in my upper right side of the abdomen, which is a sign for me to plan the next flush.
