The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush

Liver Cleanse

The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Cleanse.

I did this on the weekend and yes I passed this stone – completely painlessly amongst 100’s of other stones, smaller ones though. :)

According to Andreas Moritz, most gallstones form in the liver compared to the few that occur in the gallbladder. Twenty percent of people develop gallstones in their gallbladder, but many more people have gallstones in their liver.

It takes many years of chronic liver congestion before liver damage becomes apparent, and liver enzymes become elevated.

Liver stones are referred to as intrahepatic gallstones. These gallstones that build up in the liver can hinder the ability of the liver to produce bile.

A healthy digestive system that is robust requires the liver to produce 1-1.5 liters of bile per day. Any less will cause problems with digestion of food, elimination of waste, and detoxification of the blood.

Many people only produce 1 cup of bile or less per day. Many health problems are a consequence of reduced bile availability, including small intestinal bacteria overgrowth. The gallbladder and liver cleanse by Andreas Moritz is by far the most intense, yet effective cleanse you can do in the space of just two days.

How to do the Cleanse:

It requires six days of preparation followed by 16-20 hours of actual cleansing.


6 x 1L apple juice (fresh). Drink 1 litre each day.

4T food grade Epsom salts dissolved in 3 cups of filtered water

½C cold-pressed olive oil

3/4C grapefruit juice (fresh)

2 x 1L mason jars. 1 to mix the olive oil and grapefruit juice. 2nd for the Epsom salts with water. (The Epsom salts dilate the bile ducts to make it easy for the stones to pass and clear out waste).

Drink your apple juice daily for 6 days. The malic acid in the apple juice softens the gallstones to make passing through the bile ducts & gallbladder easy.

The day of the actual cleanse is the most intense part of the liver and gallbladder cleanse. Be sure to follow the instructions to a tee.


On the sixth day of the cleanse, drink the entire litre of apple juice in the morning.

No fats or proteins at all today! Otherwise you will feel ill during the cleanse.

Eat a light breakfast such as oatmeal & fruit.

Avoid all processed sugar, sweeteners, spiced, milk, butter, oils, yogurt, cheese, meat, eggs, nuts, pastries, cold cereals, etc. 

Get a Colonic around noon – MOST IMPORTANT! Do not do this and you will have an unsuccessful or uncomfortable cleanse.

For lunch, eat plain steamed vegetables & rice.

Finish lunch by 1:30 pm and do not drink anything past 1:30 except for water otherwise you may have difficulty passing stones.

The evening is when you will start the amazing liver and gallbladder flush protocol. The timing in which the Epsom salts and olive oil mixture is consumed is crucial. It is very important to follow the amazing liver and gallbladder flush instructions to the letter.

6:00 pm

Mix 4T of Epsom salts with 3C of filtered water in a large mason jar for a total of 4 servings. Drink your first portion of Epsom salts (3/4C) at 6 pm. You can add in a squeeze of lemon to improve the taste.

8:00 pm

Drink your second serving of Epsom salts (3/4C).

9:45 pm

Make olive oil and room temperature grapefruit mixture by combining ¾C of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice with ½C of cold-pressed olive oil in a large mason jar. Secure the lid and give a shake until mixed.

10:00 pm

Drink the olive oil and grapefruit juice standing up next to your bed. Drink the entire mixture within 5 minutes, then lie down immediately after drinking, flat on your back with pillows propping up your head.

Lie perfectly still for at least 20 minutes before falling asleep. You may feel stones traveling along, but you should feel no pain. The magnesium from the Epsom salts keeps the bile duct valves relaxed and open.

Set your alarm for 6:00 am before going to sleep.

6:00 am

Drink the next ¾C Epsom salts. You may need to use the bathroom soon after, as it helps to trigger bowel movements. Be sure to look for any gallbladder stones that float. They can range in colour from tan, bright green and dark green.

8:00 am

Drink the last ¾ cup portion of Epsom salts.

10:00 am

Eat a couple of pieces of fresh fruit if hungry

11:00 am

Eat a light breakfast – no fats or proteins – if you are hungry.

During the morning and afternoon, you can expect to have watery bowel movements with gallbladder stones.

Eat a light lunch an hour later, no fats or proteins. Same for dinner. The next day you can resume your normal diet.

On Monday or Tuesday get a follow up Colonic to remove any residue stones left in the colon. (Leaving them there can cause toxicity & gut issues).

To cleanse the liver and gallbladder of all the stones it is best to do the cleanse monthly until no more stones are released. This cleanse can be done yearly to keep the liver and gallbladder free of stones.
