Liver and Gallbladder Detox

Updated: Apr 15

The liver is the largest organ in the body, our liver has hundreds of functions. A congested liver will affect other organs, and internal systems, and can even affect emotions and mental health.

The purpose of the liver and gallbladder flush is to eliminate the congestion to improve our overall health physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically.

Most people have congestion in the liver. It can be caused by medication, eating processed foods, or having undergone stress and illnesses.

While body pain is one of the most common signs of damage to tissues or certain organs, fatigue often points to problems in the liver. When your liver function is compromised, symptoms that relate to poor detoxification, metabolism, and blood sugar regulation begin to appear. Signs your liver or body may be damaged or functioning less than normal are:

Acne and skin rashes


Blood sugar imbalances

Brain fog


Elevated cholesterol levels


Feelings of overwhelming stress


Mood swings

Pain in muscles and joints

Poor functioning digestion levels

Sluggish daily functioning and ability for normal life functions

Similarly, poor liver function can affect your hormone metabolism, causing you to experience health symptoms related to oestrogen dominance - like PMS - and putting your body at risk for breast cancer and prostate cancer.


You will need to commit 2 days to perform this liver and gallbladder flush. The first day consists of fasting and consuming 3 drinks at a specific time. You can still be out and about, as long as you can stick to the dietary requirements and the schedule. The second day consists of consuming the remaining 2 drinks and eliminating the gallstones. You should plan the second day at home so you can be close to your toilet.

What you need for the liver and gallbladder flush:

4 tbsp food grade (If you have a small build alter the Epsom salt to 3 tbsp. 4 tbsp is recommended for the average adult.)

3 cups of filtered water

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 large grapefruit (or 2 small grapefruits. The goal is to make 3/4 cup of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.)

Follow the schedule below. Please make sure to drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration. Drinking as much water as needed is allowed through the process.

Day 1, before 2pm: Do not 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 vegan lunch, such as a banana, steamed sweet potato, steamed broccoli, apple, berries, etc.

Day 1, after 2pm: fasting begins which involves no food intake, and drinking lots of water.

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 grapefruits 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. To allow your body some time out try to maintain a vegan raw and lightly steamed meal selection for a minimum of the next two days.
