During the morning and, perhaps, afternoon hours following the liver flush, you will have a number of watery bowel movements. These initially consist of gallstones mixed with food residue, and then just stones mixed with water. Most of the gallstones are pea-green and float in the toilet because they contain bile compounds. The stones will be in different shades of green and may be bright-colored and shiny like gemstones. Only bile from the liver can cause this green color.

During my research with thousands of patients suffering from almost every kind of illness, including terminal diseases, I found that each person had large numbers of gallstones in the liver and, in many cases, also in the gallbladder. When these people eliminated these stones through the liver flush and introduced simple health-forming habits and supportive measures, they recovered from diseases that defied both conventional and alternative methods of treatment.
What follows is a description of some of the more common signs indicating the presence of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder. If you have any of them, you will most likely derive great benefits from cleansing your liver and gallbladder. In my practice, I have found these indications to be highly accurate. In case you are not sure whether you have stones, it may be useful to cleanse the liver anyway; it can improve your health significantly, regardless. There is an old saying: “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.” The only way to discover for yourself whether you have gallstones is to do the liver flush. You will find that when you remove all the stones that may be present, the symptoms of disease will gradually disappear, and health will return to normal.
Signs and Marks
The major function of the skin is to continuously adjust our internal body to the ever-changing external environment, which includes temperature, humidity, dryness, and light. In addition, skin covers the body to protect us against injury, microbes, and other harmful agents. Apart from having to deal with these external influences, the skin also monitors and adapts according to internal changes taking place within the body. Accordingly, the skin reflects the condition of the organs and body fluids, including the blood and lymph. Any long-term abnormal functioning of the body will inevitably show up in the skin as skin blemishes, discoloration, or changed condition, such as dryness, oiliness, wrinkles, lines, and so forth. Almost all skin disorders have their root in an imbalanced liver condition. Gallstones lead to circulatory disorders, which reduce the nutrient supply to, and waste removal from, the skin and prevent healthy development and normal turnover cycles of skin cells. The following marks are particularly indicative of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder:
Black spots and small or large brown patches that are the color of freckles or moles: They usually appear on the right or left side of the forehead, between the eyebrows or under the eyes. They may also show up just above the right shoulder or between the shoulder blades. Most prominent are the so-called liver spots on the back of the hands and forearms, often seen among middle-aged and elderly people. If gallstones, which are spontaneously excreted by the gallbladder, get caught in the colon, such spots may also appear in the area where the thumb and index finger meet. These liver spots usually start fading after the majority of stones are removed from the liver and gallbladder. Most people assume that the liver spots are due to sun damage and “normal” aging. This is a myth. Liver spots, as the name suggests, come from the liver. Sun exposure merely brings to the surface of the skin any existing acidic waste deposits.
Vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows: There may be one deep line or two, sometimes three, lines in this region. These lines or wrinkles, which are not a part of natural aging, indicate an accumulation of many gallstones in the liver. They show that the liver is enlarged and has hardened. The deeper and longer the wrinkles are, the more the deterioration of liver function has progressed. A line near the right eyebrow also indicates congestion in the spleen. Furthermore, the vertical lines represent a great deal of repressed frustration and anger. Anger arises when gallstones prevent proper bile flow. A bilious nature is one that keeps toxins trapped-toxins that the liver tries to eliminate via bile. Vice versa, anger can trigger gallstone formation. If white or yellow patches accompany the wrinkles, a cyst or tumor may be developing in the liver. Pimples or growth of hair between eyebrows, with or without wrinkles, indicate that the liver, gallbladder, and spleen are affected.
Horizontal wrinkles across the bridge of the nose: These are a sign of pancreatic disorders due to gallstones in the liver. If a line is deep and pronounced, there may be pancreatitisor diabetes.
Green or dark color of the temple area at the sides of the head: This shows that the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen are underactive because of deposits of gallstones in both the liver and gallbladder. This may be accompanied by a green or blue color on either side of the bridge of the nose, which indicates impaired spleen functions. A horizontal line across the bridge of the nose implies weakness of the pancreas.
Oily skin in the area of the forehead: This reflects poor liver performance due to gallstones. The same applies to excessive perspiration in this part of the head. A yellow color of the facial skin indicates disorders of the bile functions of the liver and gallbladder, and a weakness of the pancreas, kidneys, and excretory organs.
Hair loss in the central region of the head: This mark indicates that the liver, heart, small intestines, pancreas, and reproductive organs are becoming increasingly congested and aggravated. There is a tendency to develop cardiovascular disease, chronic digestive problems, and the formation of cysts and tumors. Early graying of hair shows that liver and gallbladder functions are underactive.
Hardening and thickening at the tip of the nose: This indicates chronic liver weakness, resulting in hardening of the arteries and the accumulation of fat around the heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, and prostate glands. If the enlargement is excessive and blood vessels are visible, a heart attack or stroke may be imminent.
The nose is constantly red: This condition shows an abnormal condition of the heart, with a tendency toward high blood pressure(hypertension). A purple nose indicates low blood pressure. Both conditions are due to imbalanced liver, digestive, and kidney functions.
Cleft nose or indentation of the tip of the nose: This mark indicates irregular heartbeat and heart murmur. If one half of the cleft nose is larger than the other, this shows that one side of the heart is abnormally enlarged. Arrhythmia and panic attacks may accompany this condition. There may be severe lymphatic congestion caused by digestive disorders such as constipation, colitis, stomach ulcer, and so on. Liverfunctions are subdued because of large amounts of gallstones cutting off the blood supply to the liver cells. Bile secretions are insufficient. (Note: I have personally seen clefts in the nose disappear after liver flushing.)
The nose is bending toward the left: Unless caused by an accident, this asymmetric shape of the nose implies that the organs on the right side of the body are underactive. These include the liver, gallbladder, right kidney, ascending colon, right ovary or testicle, and right side of the brain. The main cause of this condition is an accumulation of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder (the nose is likely to return to center once the stones are removed).
Skincolor under the eyes is yellowish: This indicates that the liver and gallbladder are overactive. A dark, even black color in the same area results when the kidneys, bladder, and reproductive organs are overtaxed because of a prolonged disorder of the digestive system. A grayish, pale color occurs if the kidneys and, occasionally, the lungs are malfunctioning owing to improper lymphdrainage from these organs. Also, the endocrine system may be affected.
Water-containing bags under the lower eyelids: These are formed as a result of congestion in the digestive and excretory organs, which results in inadequate lymph drainage from the head area. If these eye bags are chronic and contain fat, this points toward the presence of inflammation, cysts and, possibly, tumors in the bladder, ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, and prostate.
A white cloud covers the pupil of the eye: The cloud consists mostly of mucus and degenerate protein particles. It indicates the development of cataracts brought about by longstanding poor liver and digestive performance.
Constant redness in the white of the eye: This condition is caused by the protrusion of capillaries, indicating disorders in the circulatory and respiratory functions. White or yellow mucus patches in the white of the eye show that the body is accumulating abnormal amounts of fatty substances because the liver and gallbladder have amassed large quantities of gallstones. When this occurs, the body has a tendency to develop cysts and both benign and malignant tumors.
A thick white line covers parts of the periphery of the iris, particularly the lower parts: This indicates the accumulation of large amounts of cholesterol in the blood circulatory system. The lymphatic system also has major congestion and fat retention. (Note: If you wish to understand the connection of the eyes and iris with the various parts of the body, I recommend that you study the science of iridology, or eye interpretation.)
The eyes have lost their natural luster and shine: This signals that both the liver and kidneys are congested and unable to filter the blood properly. “Dirty” blood, loaded with toxins or waste products, is heavier and more sluggish than clean blood. The thickened blood slows circulation and reduces oxygen and nutrient supply to the cells and organs, including the eyes. If this condition persists, the cells will deteriorate and inevitably age or die off. The eye and braincells are especially affected because the blood has to flow against gravity to reach them. Most vision problems are the direct or indirect result of reduced blood-cleansing capacity by the liver and kidneys. Clean and nutrient-rich blood from a healthy, efficient liver can flow easily and nourish the eye tissues better, thereby improving most eye problems.
The Tongue, Mouth, Lips,and Teeth
The tongue is coated yellow or white, especially in the back part: This indicates an imbalance in the secretion of bile, which is the major cause of digestive trouble. Toxic residues of undigested and fermented or putrefied food linger in the intestinal tract. This blocks lymph flow in the thoracic duct and prevents toxins and microbes in the throat and mouth area from being removed.
Teeth impressions on the sides of the tongue, often accompanied by white mucus discharge: This indicates weak digestion and inadequate absorption of nutrients from the small intestine.
Pimples on the tongue: They are indicative of poor digestion and the presence of fermenting and putrefying food in both the small and large intestines.
Cracks on the tongue: These are signs of long-term intestinal trouble. When food is not being mixed with a sufficient amount of bile, it remains partially undigested. Undigested foods are subjected to bacterial putrefaction and, thereby, become a source of toxicity. Constant exposure of the intestinal wall to the toxins that these bacteria produce irritates and injures it. The resulting lesions, scars, and hardening of the intestinal walls is then reflected by the cracks on the tongue. There may be little or no mucus discharge on the tongue.
Repeated mucus discharge into the throat and mouth: Bile may regurgitate into the stomach, thereby irritating its protective lining and causing excessive mucus production. Some of the bile and mucus may reach the mouth area. This can create a bad (bitter) taste in the mouth and give rise to frequent attempts at clearing the throat, which sometimes involve coughing. Mucus discharge without this bitter taste results when food is not digested properly, and toxins are generated. The mucus helps to trap and neutralize some of these toxins, but as a side effect, it causes congestion.
Bad breath and frequent burping: Both signs point toward the presence of undigested, fermenting, or putrefying food in the GI tract. Bacteria acting on the waste material produce gases, which can be very toxic at times, hence the bad odor emanating from the breath.
Crust formations at the corners of the mouth: This indicates the presence of duodenal ulcers, caused by regurgitation of bile into the stomach, or by other reasons discussed earlier. Ulcers in various parts of the mouth or on the tongue show that inflammation or ulceration is occurring in the corresponding parts of the GI tract. For example, a mouth ulcer on the outside parts of your lower lip points to the presence of ulcer lesions in the large intestine. Herpes (‘cold sores’) on the lip corresponds to more severe inflammation and ulceration of the intestinal wall.
Dark spots or patches on the lips: These marks occur when obstructions in the liver, gallbladder, and kidneys have resulted in slowness and stagnation of blood circulation and lymph drainage throughout the body. There may be advanced, abnormal constriction of blood capillaries. If the color of the lips is reddish (dark) or purple, this indicates that heart, lung, and respiratory functions are subdued.
Swollen or expanded lips: This condition indicates intestinal disorders. If the lower lip is swollen, the colon suffers constipation, diarrhea, or both, alternating between them. Toxic gases are formed from improperly digested foods, which give rise to bloating and abdominal discomfort. A swollen or enlarged upper lip indicates stomach problems, including indigestion, frequently accompanied by ‘heartburn’. An abnormal, tightly closed mouth shows that a person suffers from disorders of the liver, gallbladder, and, possibly, the kidneys. If the lower lip is dry, peels, and splits easily, there may either be chronic constipation or diarrhea, with large amounts of toxic acids prevalent in the colon. This condition is accompanied by advanced dehydration of the colon cells.
Swollen, sensitive, or bleeding gums: Any these symptoms occurs when lymph drainage from the mouth area is inefficient as a result of intestinal lymph congestion. The blood has an overload of acid compounds. Inflammation deep in the throat, with or without swelling of the tonsils, is also caused by lymphatic blockage. Tonsillitis, which often occurs among children, is a sign of constant retention of toxins contained in the lymph fluids and back-flushing of waste from the GI tract into the tonsils.
Toothproblemsare generally caused by nutritional imbalance: Poor digestion and overconsumption of refined, processed, and highly acid-forming foods, such as sugar, chocolate, meat, cheese, coffee, soda, and so forth, deplete the body of minerals and vitamins. Adults usually have thirty-two teeth. Each tooth corresponds to a vertebra of the spine, and each vertebra is connected to a major organ or gland. If any of the four canines are decaying, for example, it indicates the presence of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder. A yellow color of the teeth, and of the canines in particular, indicates the presence of toxins in the organs located in the mid abdominal region, that is, the liver, gallbladder, stomach, pancreas, and spleen. Bacteria are not the cause of tooth decay. They only attack tooth tissue that already has an unbalanced acid-alkaline ratio. Proper saliva secretions also play a major role in the protection of the teeth. Truly healthy teeth last a lifetime and are maintained by a healthy digestive system.
Hands, Nails, and Feet
White, fatty skin on the fingertips is a sign of dysfunctional digestive and lymphatic systems. In addition, the liver and kidneys may be forming cysts and tumors. An excessive discharge of fats may occur, seen as oiliness on the skin.
Dark red fingernails point toward a high content of cholesterol, fatty acids, and minerals in the blood. The liver, gallbladder, and spleen are congested and underactive, and all excretory functions are overburdened with waste products. Whitish nails indicate the accumulation of fat and mucus in and around the heart, liver, pancreas, prostate, or ovaries. This condition is accompanied by poor blood circulation and low hemoglobin levels (anemia).
Vertical ridges in the fingernails generally indicate poor absorption of food and the disruption of important digestive, liver, and kidney functions. There may be general fatigue. Strong vertical ridges on the thumbnails, possibly with split ends, show that a person’s testicles and prostate or ovaries are not functioning properly. This is caused by the ineffectiveness of the digestive and circulatory systems.
Horizontal indentations in the nails show unusual or drastic changes in dietary habits. The changes can be either beneficial or harmful.
White dots on the nails appear when the body eliminates large amounts of calcium and/or zinc in response to excessive consumption of sugar or sugar-containing foods and beverages. Sugar has highly acid-forming properties and leaches out these minerals from the bones and teeth.
A hard protrusion at the ball of the foot: This condition shows progressive hardening of the organs located in the middle of the body, including the liver, stomach, pancreas, and spleen. It points to the accumulation of numerous gallstones in the liver and gallbladder.
A yellow color of the feet indicates the accumulation of many gallstones in the liver and gallbladder. If the color of any part of the feet is green, then spleen and lymph functions are severely disrupted. This may lead to cysts and to benign and malignant tumors.
Hardness at the tip of the fourth toe or a callus in the area under the fourth toe: This symptom shows that gallbladder functions are stagnant. General rigidity, a bent condition, and pain in the fourth toe imply a long history of gallstones in the gallbladder and liver.
Curving of the first toe: If the large toe curves inward toward the second toe, it shows that liver functions are subdued owing to the presence of gallstones in the liver bile ducts. At the same time, spleen and lymphatic functions are overactive because of the accumulation of toxic residues from inadequately digested foods, metabolic waste, and cellular debris.
White color and rugged surfaces on the fourth and fifth toenails: This indicates poor performance of the liver and gallbladder, as well as of the kidneys and urinary bladder.
The Constitution of Fecal Matter
The stool or fecal matter emits a sharp, sour, or penetrative odor: This indicates that food is not being digested properly. Fermented and putrefied food and the presence of large quantities of ‘unfriendly’ bacteria in the feces give rise to an abnormal odor and sticky texture. Normal stool is coated with a thin mucus lining, which prevents the anus from being soiled.
Dry and hard stools are an indication of constipation, and so are sticky stools. Diarrhea is yet another sign of weak performance of the digestive system and the liver, in particular.
Pale or clay-colored feces: This is still another indication of poor liver performance (bile gives the stool its natural brown color). If the stool floats, large amounts of undigested fats are contained in it, making it lighter than water.
There may be many more signs and symptoms indicating the presence of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder than those listed above. Pain in the right shoulder, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, numbness in the legs and sciatica, for example, may have no obvious relation to gallstones in the liver. Yet when the gallstones are removed, these conditions usually disappear.
The body is a network of information, and every part influences and communicates with every other part. Seemingly insignificant marks or signs on the skin, in the eyes, or on a toe may be the harbingers of serious health issues. When you recognize them and flush your liver and gallbladder, in concert with adopting a healthy regimen of diet and lifestyle, you will find that the signs of wellness and vitality begin to reappear. To prevent illness and make permanent health a practical reality in your life, it is important to understand what actually causes gallstones in the first place.

The small intestine is continuous with the stomach at the pyloric sphincter and has a length of 16-19 feet (5-6 meters). It leads into the large intestine, which is about 3.5-5 feet (1-1.5 meters) long. The small intestine secretes intestinal juice to complete digestion of carbohydrates, protein and fats. It also absorbs nutrient materials necessary for nourishing and maintaining the body, and protects it against infection by microbes that have survived the anti-microbial action of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
When acid food (chyme) from the stomach enters the duodenum, it is first mixed with bile and pancreatic juice, and then with intestinal juice. Gallstones in the liver and gallbladder drastically reduce secretion of bile, which weakens the ability of pancreatic enzymes to digest carbohydrates, protein and fat. This, in turn, restrains the small intestine from properly absorbing the nutrient components of these foods (e.g. monosaccharides from carbohydrates, amino acids from protein, and fatty acids and glycerol from fats).
Since the presence of bile in the intestines is essential for the absorption of fats, calcium and Vitamin K, gallstones can lead to life-threatening diseases, such as heart disease, osteoporosis and cancer. The liver uses the fat-soluble Vitamin K to produce the compounds responsible for the clotting of blood. In case of poor Vitamin K absorption, hemorrhagic disease may result. This vitamin cannot be adequately absorbed if there is any problem with fat digestion, due to lack of bile, pancreatic lipase and a certain amount of pancreatic fat. For the latter reason, following a low-fat diet can endanger one’s life.
Calcium is essential for the hardening of bone and teeth, the coagulation of blood and the mechanism of muscle contraction. What applies to Vitamin K also applies to all other fat-soluble vitamins, including Vitamin A, E and D. Vitamin A and carotene are also only absorbed sufficiently from the small intestine if fat absorption is normal. If Vitamin A absorption is inefficient, the epithelial cells become damaged. These cells form an essential part of all the organs, blood vessels, lymph vessels, etc. in the body. Vitamin A is also necessary to maintain healthy eyes and protect against or reduce microbial infection. Vitamin D is essential for calcification of bones and teeth. It may be noted at this point that supplementing these vitamins does not resolve the problem of deficiency.
To sum up, without normal bile secretions, these vitamins are not digested and absorbed properly and, therefore, can cause considerable damage to the lymphatic and urinary systems.
Inadequately digested foods tend to ferment and putrefy in the small and large intestines. They attract a vast number of bacteria to help speed up the process of decomposition. The breakdown products are often very toxic and so are the chemicals produced by the bacteria. All of this strongly irritates the mucous lining, which is one of the body’s foremost defense lines against disease-causing agents. Regular exposure to these toxins impairs the body’s immune system, 60% of which is located in the intestines. Overburdened by a constant influx of toxins, the small and large intestines may be afflicted with a number of disorders, including diarrhea, constipation, abdominal gas, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticular disease, hernias, polyps, dysentery, appendicitis, volvulus, intussusceptions, as well as benign and malignant tumors.
Ample bile flow maintains good digestion and absorption of food, and has a strong cleansing action throughout the intestinal tract. Every part of the body depends on the basic nutrients made available through the digestive system, as well as the efficient removal of waste products from the digestive system. Gallstones in the liver and gallbladder considerably disrupt both of these vital processes. Therefore, they can be held accountable for most, if not all, of the different kinds of ailments that can afflict the body. Removal of gallstones helps to normalize the digestive and eliminative functions, improve cell metabolism and maintain balance throughout the body.

Gallstones in the liver and gallbladder can be held responsible for most diseases of the mouth. The stones interfere with the digestion and absorption of food, which in turn forces waste products meant for elimination to remain in the intestinal tract. Bacterial infection (thrush) and viral infection (herpes) in the mouth arise only when waste decomposes and becomes a source of toxicity in the body. The trapped toxins constantly irritate parts of the gastro-intestinal lining (which begins in the mouth and ends in the anus) until inflammation or ulceration occurs. The damaged cell tissue ‘invites’ more microbes to the scene of the injury to help clean up of cellular debris. This is a normal phenomenon seen everywhere in nature whenever there is something that needs to be decomposed.
Bacteria never attack, that is, infect something that is as clean, vital and healthy as a fruit hanging on a tree. Only when the fruit becomes overripe or falls to the ground do bacteria begin their clean-up job. The moment bacteria begin to decompose food or flesh, toxins are generated. These toxins can be recognized by their unpleasant odor and acidic nature. If they are generated in the body, it is only natural that symptoms of illness begin to show up.
Thrush indicates the presence of large quantities of bacteria that have spread throughout the gastro-intestinal tract, including the mouth area. It shows up in the mouth because the mucous lining there is no longer resistant enough to keep its cells in good physical shape. Since the main part of the immune system is located in the mucous lining of the gastro-intestinal tract, thrush indicates a major weakness in the body’s general immunity to disease.
Herpes, which is considered a viral disease, is similar to thrush, with the exception that, instead of bacteria attacking the cell exterior, viral materials attack the cell interior or nucleus. In both cases, the attackers target only weak and unhealthy cells, those that are already damaged or dysfunctional. Added to this dilemma, gallstones harbor plenty of bacteria and viruses, which escape the liver via the secreted bile and infect those parts of the body that have the least resistance to them.
Gallstones can lead to other problems in the mouth. They inhibit proper bile secretion, which in turn reduces appetite and secretion of saliva from the salivary glands in the mouth. Saliva is required to cleanse the mouth and keep its tissues soft and pliable. If there is not enough saliva present, destructive bacteria begin to invade the mouth cavity. This can lead to tooth decay and other tooth-related problems. But, once again, bacteria do not cause tooth decay; germs are attracted only to those areas in the mouth that are undernourished and toxic already.
A bitter taste in the mouth is caused by bile that has regurgitated into the stomach and, from there, into the mouth. This condition occurs because of major intestinal congestion. Instead of properly moving downward, parts of the intestinal content are backed up and bring gas and other irritating substances into the upper regions of the gastro-intestinal tract. Bile in the mouth drastically alters the pH-value (acid-alkalinity balance) of saliva, which impairs its cleansing properties and makes the mouth susceptible to infection.
A mouth ulcerin the lower lip indicates a simultaneous inflammatory process in the large intestine. Repeated occurrence of ulcers in either one of the corners of the mouth points to the presence of duodenal ulcers. Tongue ulcers, depending on their location, indicate inflammatory processes in corresponding areas of the alimentary canal, such as the stomach, small intestine, appendix or large intestine.

If you experience major, persisting health problems, either physical or emotional, your liver may be congested with toxic compounds that are trapped within deposits of hardened bile (intrahepatic stones). Almost all health conditions, beauty problems and premature aging are closely linked with declined liver performance which is elusive to blood tests.
Congestion in the bile ducts of the liver undermines the body’s effort to make proper use of ingested food and vital energy. This, in turn, may lead to accentuated expressions of discomfort, including fear, anger, impatience, greed, depression, dis-ease and cynicism. Cleansing the liver of existing obstructions and impurities can help restore balance, vitality and happiness in every facet of your life.
When The Body Complains…
Unlike the stomach, for example, the liver never tells you directly when it is upset or needs special attention. It does tell you indirectly, though, when it starts to perform poorly. The following conditions would not occur if the liver were in optimum shape: skin irritation, weak eyesight, unhealthy bowel movements, irregular menstrual cycles, recurring headaches, unexplainable weight gain, loss of energy, sudden aging, elevated cholesterol levels, most allergies, constricted blood vessels, bloated abdomen, water retention, gastrointestinal trouble, breathing difficulties, poor memory and concentration, pain in the joints or elsewhere in the body, brittle bones, and any major illness such as heart disease, cancer, MS, diabetes or Alzheimer’s.
The liver is responsible for processing, converting, distributing and maintaining the body’s fuel supply which consists of nutrients and energy. Impeding these vital functions not only affects the body’s performance as a whole, but also the health of every single cell. The liver cannot perform any of these functions properly if its bile ducts are clogged with deposits of hardened bile or ‘gallstones’ (made of gall or bile). Gallstones are caused by a number of factors, including the modern fast pace of living, stress, imbalanced diets, disruptive lifestyle, use of medical drugs, stimulants and alcohol, and ingestion of chemical poisons, such as food additives and artificial sweeteners. Bile duct congestion results in major impairment of digestive functions, thereby reducing the nutrient supply to the trillions of cells in the body. This makes gallstones in the liver to be a major cause of physical and emotional illness.
The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush
The liver flush mentioned in this context is a straightforward, safe and painless do-it-yourself procedure using apple juice (or malic acid), olive oil, citrus juice and Epsom salts to dispel gallstones from the liver and, of course, also from the gallbladder. The flush is best done on a weekend at home. Although the liver flush is very easy to do, it is important to understand the process and follow all of the directions precisely. Since introducing the liver cleanse to hundreds and thousands of patients in the 1990s, I have received countless testimonies expressing total amazement about the fast and profound healing effects it produces. They encouraged me to write a book on the subject. The book includes the exact procedure and necessary background information for conducting this simple, yet most profound cleanse. Today, the liver cleanse has helped restore the health of thousands of people in all parts of the world.
Gallstones in the Liver – The Most Common Cause of Illness
An estimated one billion of the world’s population will develop gallstones in their gallbladder at some stage in their lives. In the United States, 20 million adults suffer from gallstone attacks every year. In many cases, treatment merely consists of removing the gallbladder, at a cost of $5,000 per operation, with little or no regard to what causes gallstones. These statistics, however, do not account for the millions more who will develop gallstones in their liver or, or who already have them.
During my 30 years of practicing natural medicine around the world I have dealt with thousands of people suffering from all types of diseases. I can document that each one of them, without exception, has had considerable quantities of gallstones in their liver. Surprisingly, only relatively few chronically ill patients report having a history of gallstones in their gallbladder. However, as can be easily verified, every person suffering from heart disease, arthritis, MS, cancer or diabetes has hundreds if not thousands of gallstones blocking the bile ducts of their liver. The presence of gallstones in the liver is the main impediment to acquiring and maintaining good health, youthfulness and vitality. Gallstones are, in fact, one of the major reasons people become ill and have difficulty recuperating from illness.
Medicine’s Most Unfortunate Oversight
Most people believe that gallstones can be found only in the gallbladder. This is a common false assumption. Most gallstones are actually formed in the liver and comparatively few occur in the gallbladder. You can easily verify this assessment by giving yourself a liver cleanse. It matters little whether you are a layperson, a medical doctor, scientist, or someone who no longer has a gallbladder and, therefore, is believed to be free of gallstones altogether. The results of the liver cleanse speak for themselves. Once you see hundreds of green or beige-colored gallstones floating in the toilet bowl during your first liver flush, you will intuitively know that you are on to something very important in your life.
I am repeatedly asked the intriguing question – why is there only little or no reference in mainstream medicine to the occurrence of gallstones in the liver? The failure to recognize the incidence of gallstone formation in the liver may very well be the most unfortunate oversight that has ever been made in the field of medicine, both orthodox and complementary forms. Heavy reliance on blood tests for diagnostic purposes, as seen in most medical practices, may actually be a big disadvantage with regard to assessing liver health. Most people who have some sort of physical complaint usually have perfectly normal liver enzyme levels in the blood, despite suffering liver congestion. Liver bile duct congestion is one of the commonest health problems, yet conventional medicine makes little or no reference to them, nor does it have reliable methods to diagnose these conditions. Liver enzyme levels in the blood become elevated only when there is advanced liver cell destruction, as is the case in hepatitis or liver inflammation. Liver cells contain large amounts of enzymes. When ruptured, the enzymes enter the blood and signal liver abnormalities. By then, however, the damage has already occurred. It takes many years of liver bile duct congestion before such an event becomes possible.
Unless there is a specific liver disease, such as liver cirrhosis, this vital organ is rarely considered a ‘culprit’ for other diseases. The majority of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder consist of the same ‘harmless’ constituents as are contained in liquid bile, with cholesterol being the main ingredient. This makes most of them ‘invisible’ to X-ray and ultra-sound technologies. Therefore, standard clinical tests are not a reliable way to detect gallstones (hardened bile) in the liver.
On the other hand, a qualified iridologist, an Ayurvedic physician or a natural health practitioner who knows the signs and indications of gallstones in the liver and gallbladder, can quite easily determine the extent of gallstone formation in these organs. Most people in the civilized world have gallstones. But even in alternative or complementary medicine, there is rarely mention of an effective therapy that can actually remove gallstones safely and without pain. Even when all other disease-causing factors are eliminated, if gallstones are still present in the liver, they remain the hidden harbingers of future illness.
Reaping the Benefits
Those suffering from chronic illnesses usually have several thousand gallstones congesting the bile ducts of the liver. Some stones may have impacted the gallbladder as well. By removing these stones through a series of liver cleanses, and maintaining a reasonably balanced diet and lifestyle, the liver and gallbladder will be able to restore their natural efficiency, and most symptoms of discomfort or disease in the body will quickly begin to subside. Allergies will lessen or disappear, back, neck and shoulder pain will dissipate, and energy and wellness will improve dramatically. There is no part of the body that doesn’t benefit from liver cleansing.
Sweeping the liver clean eliminates thousands of bits of poisonous substances that have helped form the stones that block thousands of liver bile ducts. Cleansing the liver bile ducts from gallstones is one of the most important and powerful procedures to regain or improve your health and raise the body’s vibration. By reopening the bile ducts, the body’s energy circuit becomes restored and healing can take place on all levels of body, mind and spirit.

Teleclass The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush With Andreas Moritz
Nancy Desjardins: Hello and welcome to our weekly tele-seminar. I am Nancy Desjardins form healthlady.com. And if this is your first time, welcome, today I’ll be hosting a fifty minute tele-class and we are going to talk about how to take charge of your health with the liver and gallbladder cleanse with our very special guest Andreas Mortis. So now about Andreas Moritz, so, Andreas is a medical intuitive, a practitioner of Ayurveda, iridology, shiatsu and vibration medicine, a writer, and also an artist. He was born in south west Germany in 1954. Andreas had to deal with several severe illnesses from an early age which compelled him to study diet, nutrition and various methods of natural healing while still a child. So by the age of twenty, he had completed his training in both iridology the diagnostic science of eye interpretation and diagnosis. In 1981 Andreas began studding Ayurvedic medicine in India and finished his training as a qualified practitioner in New Zealand in 1991. So rather than being satisfied with merely treating there symptoms of illness, Andreas has dedicated his life work to understanding and treating at the root cause of illness. So because of this holistic approach he has had great success with cases of terminal disease where conventional method of healing proved futile. So since 1988 he has practiced the Japanese healing art of shiatsu which has given him insight into the energy system of the body. Now therein he devoted eight years of research into consciousness and its important role in the filed of mind-body medicine. He is also the author of many, many books, I am going to mention three of them “THE AMAZING LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FLUSH “and “THE LIVER GALLBLADDER MIRACLE CLEANSE” and “TIMELESS SECRETS OF HEALING AND REJUVENATION“. Do visit his website which is “www.ENER-CHI.com” so it is ENER-CHI.com or just Google, just type in Andreas Moritz that will guide you right on his website. So welcome Andreas and thanks for joining me today.
Andreas Moritz: Thank you Nancy, thanks for having me,
Nancy Desjardins: This is our second interview and I was so looking forward for this interview and so Andreas, can you tell us a little bit about your background and why you wrote the book “THE LIVER And GALLBLADDER MIRACLE CLEANSE“
Andreas Moritz: Now, I will answer the second question first because I had to deal with my own illnesses and I suffered forty gallstone attacks. Once every seven eight weeks and anyone who knows what a gallstones attack is and has experienced it, will know that it is extremely painful. So it served me as a great motivator to find out why I had these gallstone attacks, not that in just that I had them but why I had them and so I discovered, it took me back to way back to my early childhood where I had an injury on my head, it causes scoliosis, it caused me gastro-intestinal problems. By the time I was six years old, I already had gallstones in my liver, actually I am saying, I am saying that consciously, gallstones in my liver, because nobody really could figure that one out. My uncle was a leading medical doctor in Germany at that time, he was an iridologist as well and he looked in my eyes and said you have stones in your liver and I always remembered that and so when I developed these very, very powerful painful gallstone attacks, I remembered his words, “there are stones in your liver” and so I did not want to sacrifice my gallbladder just for nothing really. I knew the implications of what happens when your gallbladder has been removed such as continuous gastro intestinal problems and the risk of cancer is going up, obesity can result form that so there were many, many things I did not want to happen and I looked for natural alternatives, how to get rid of these stones in the liver, I knew I had gallstones in the gallbladder because whenever I had a gallstone attack one or several of these stone started coming through, but they unfortunately got stuck in my common bile duct which caused me the excruciating pain which often times lasted as long as three weeks, day and night, and you cannot really take a breath without going into a spasm. So the answer to my search was given to me, because I lived in an area of the road where olive oil was one of the commonest foods that exist there and the Greek islands, in this particular place is Cyprus, which has, it is partly Greek and partly Turkish and what I was looking for was an answer, what do the grandmothers and mothers, the Greek mothers and grandmothers do, when their children get sick, and so this took me into the remote villages and when I asked them what do you do when your grandchildren are sick and they said “well we give them olive oil and lemon juice to drink”, I said “what?” And so, and they said, “well what happens then is well these green things are coming out of them and they feel good again and they are healthy and they are very healthy” and so these people are actually very healthy, they live off the land, they have, but sometimes things can happen and children get sick and so they put them on these liver cleanses… they had no idea what actually would happen but when I researched the matter I found that this was not new, I found books form the 1920s in English literature, in great Britain, and also some German literature where in the early 20th century, people, doctors were actually talking about these cleanses that purge the liver of toxins and stones, and so, when I tested it out on myself, then I immediately found when I looked in the toilet bowl, three hundred stones sitting there, they were floating in the toilet and I felt somehow rejuvenated, something happened and there was greater clarity, my eyes looked better, I had more energy and then I did not have a gallstone attack again, never, after my first liver flush. So that is where the story begins. I noted down my experiences and eventually I wrote the first version of the liver flush and it was called “THE LIVER CLEANSE” and it became “THE AMAZING LIVER CLEANSE” because it became more amazing as I continued passing these stones and my health improved dramatically during that time and so that is where basically the history the brief history of the liver and gall bladder flush comes from.
Nancy Desjardins: Wow! That is very powerful, I mean you.. just your own experience and what they did is after our first interview, we are going back to a few years ago, I had read your book and did several liver gallbladder cleanses and whenever, you know, I mean, it is, we live in, it is almost impossible to remove stress from our lives. How is your stress level Andreas?
Andreas Moritz: Well, there is always a reason that could make you feel stressed, however that has more to do with you than these situations that occur so if you know, if you are… if you haven’t slept well during the night and then something happens that could be a grievance in your life, then you will react more strongly to that than you would if you had been well rested and energized. So…
Nancy Desjardins: But let me add…
Andreas Moritz: Yeah..
Nancy Desjardins: Let me add something to this, so what happened after those several liver and gallbladder cleanses, I was definitely one of those people that were… I was having a hard time coping with perhaps the demand or stress. The first thing I noticed with the liver gallbladder cleanse is I was more adaptable, I was able to cope with the situation much, much better. So that is what I wanted to share.
Andreas Moritz: Right
Nancy Desjardins: Too full or what!
Andreas Moritz: Absolutely, because that is basically what it does. It raises your energy levels, it allows you to differentiate, rather a greater clarity in your mental capacities, you have a better way to modify your responses to any given situation because you have a greater sense of clarity about them and so a lot of things happen, it is not just that your eyesight, your outer vision can improve and become more clear but, your inner vision as well, and so you start seeing things more clearly and you realize that stressful conditions that may have bothered you before, they may not be as stressful now, so something happens inside when your body is feeling healthier, then you are also responding to stressful conditions in a much different way. You have a much more relaxed sort of approach to stress.
Nancy Desjardins: Yes absolutely, I am glad that you elaborated on this subject, now before we dive in into the interview, could you explain the functions of the liver ?
Andreas Moritz: Well I could talk for days about that because the liver is probably the most complex organ that we have. It is almost it is on the same foot as the brain in terms of complexity. There is hardly anything that happens in the body that is not indirectly or directly controlled by the liver. One of the most important things is to produce a substance that helps us to digest food and that is called bile, and bile is a greenish yellowish liquid that has a bitter sour taste to it that when you eat food and it goes into your stomach, the gallbladder is collecting bile form the liver and it is secreting it into the common bile duct, from there it enters the small intestine and so by the time your food is travelling into your intestines, it is being met by bile and that is very, very significant and important because the bile is alkaline, the hydrochloric acid in the stomach is obviously acidic, and so, there is a neutralization of acid that takes place to protect the lower intestine from erosion. So it is very important that we make enough bile. Now the bile is needed to digest fats, and without the bile you cannot digest fats, you can also not absorb minerals like calcium and magnesium, you need the presence of bile to do that, so you can already see how important this particular substance is. Imagine if no calcium gets absorbed, your bones are going to become brittle and you literally die for you cannot stand, you cannot walk, you cannot do anything, so it is a simple thing that has incredible repercussions throughout the entire body, in this case the skeletal system. Now if you want to digest food because food is absolutely essential to sustain the life of the sixty trillion cells that maintain your body, imagine if the fat is not digested, then you also have problems with another type of food. Carbohydrates need fat to digest them, without fat you cannot digest carbohydrates without fats you can also not digest proteins, so if you cannot digest proteins and fats and carbohydrates you have nothing, and so that is why people who do not make enough bile anymore, and the body is going into a state of either initiation or obesity which is basically the same thing. It means that the cells no longer receive their nutrients and the body might desperately hold on to fluids and fat and anything that might come into it and store it for to wait for the rainy day, so to say, when the juices can flow again and so a lot of problems arise when we do not secrete or produce enough bile in the liver and in the gallbladder. The bile is also necessary to take toxins out of the liver. This is the liver’s way to remove the toxins that it, the liver cells, have removed form the blood stream. So the liver is in charge of detoxifying the blood and through the blood the rest of the body. So if there is any part of the body that accumulates toxins, it shows that the liver is not capable of doing its job properly and therefore the ability to dump toxins into the bile and carry them out of the liver into the intestines for excretion, that function has been impaired. So the liver is extremely important also with regard to storing certain fats, soluble vitamins like vitamin D and K and A, and so when the liver is congested and it cannot absorb these fat soluble vitamins because there is not enough bile to digest fats to derive these vitamins from and store them in the liver then lot of, many, many health problems can result just from that. So you can see how the liver which monitors how many vitamins are needed that have to be stored in the liver, how many can be released and discarded, the liver constantly keeps track of all those functions. Then there is the ability to keep the blood values at the proper levels and that is extremely important otherwise the body would constantly bleed or it would get blood clots that would be formed because the blood would be too thick. So the liver, through very complex processes, that would take volumes of description if you ever want to write about it to describe it, it is extremely complex how the blood is maintained at the perfect level and the liver is in control of that. So anything that can affect the liver functions can therefore have huge repercussions for there rest of the body.
Nancy Desjardins: And today we are exposed to environment toxicity, I mean, can you talk about that, what an impact this has to do, this has, on the liver?
Andreas Moritz: Absolutely it is not just certain foods or beverages like alcohol, the liver is know to break down alcohol but it can do that only to a certain degree and the excess amount will then create issues that if you drink too much alcohol, it can lead to liver cirrhosis and that is very well known and pancreas destruction. So there are things that the liver is trying to do or whenever there are pesticides coming into the system, these are chemicals produced in laboratories, the liver has a certain capability of breaking down some of them but not all of them. So the liver also is in charge of removing air toxins that you breathe in that end up in your bloodstream. The liver also deals with toxins that we create when we do not digest our food properly so when we overeat, for example when we eat too much in the evening, when we eat foods that are very hard to digest – like animal protein where the human body has the capacity to digest between ten – fifteen and in some, the young people perhaps can digest twenty percent of a steak the rest of it will have to be decomposed and that produces nitrosamines which are very powerful toxins and when they enter the liver, the liver tries to detoxify as much of them as possible but oftentimes that does not work, there is simply too much coming in. We are exposed to fluoride in drinking water and toothpaste and mouth washes, there are toxins that come, particularly women they use makeup and other body creams and things that we put on our hair… hair dye, so there is so many, many different sources of pollutants, just drink from the bottle, plastic bottle, any water or other beverages, there will be plastic components which are carcinogenic, that means cancer producing, that leaked into the water or into the beverage, like coca-cola has already a lot of acids, it leaches out chemicals from the plastic bottle that end up in the system, there are hormones, there are drug elements in the drinking water now that people, when they use these drugs, they pass them into the… even antibiotics are now found in drinking water, so you dose yourself with drugs for things you do not need to take them, for simply by drinking water, public water, and so there are many, many contaminants. There are other things when you look in the sky you have chemtrails that are dumped in they spraying chemicals on to people these white long things that are consisting of aluminum oxides which are extremely poisonous, so when you breathe that in, or it gets into the food, when it settles into the drinking water then we become contaminated. We live in a place in the big city, just today there was new research that it causes brain damage and mental problems and memory issues in people that live in urban areas because simply because of the pollutants. So there is many things that the liver has to deal with and in this world and in this, in today’s environment, it is virtually impossible for the liver to get rid of all those multiple and differentiated kinds of chemicals and poisons and toxins that… then people get vaccines, they get a whole cocktail of sixty three carcinogenic poisons that enter the system. So the liver is not coping with that, it is impossible for the liver to deal with all the toxins and therefore the liver has to dump some of them into the bile ducts, to surround them with bile, to encapsulate these toxins, to keep them form entering the small intestine where they could be absorbed and into the blood and cause blood poisoning. So for the liver to create stones, that is really a necessity, not a disease, this is not something, this is a survival mechanism. So the body does that only to protect ourselves at least for the time being from being overloaded with toxins where the toxins might enter the brain and cause severe brain damage
Nancy Desjardins: And would you say that the color of your stool could indicate the quality of your bowels?
Andreas Moritz: Oh absolutely, and this is well known. You can read that up, in physiology books, that when the stools start floating it shows that the fats that you have eaten it is not digested properly, it stays in the fecal matter and causes the fecal matter to be lighter than water so it would float, it is like a boat, that really has air in it, like these little air boats. So the same thing applies to stool that is colored grayish sort of pale color, not the typical brown color, the brown color comes from the hemoglobin in the bile and that colors in that form and bile also colors it in this way once it is used in the digestive process as designed, then it will give you nice brown, bell shaped, non smeary stools. Whereas if they are light colored or grey colored or sort of pale looking, then it shows there is not enough bile that comes through into the digestive track to help digest the food with.
Nancy Desjardins: And now, so how many liver cleanse would a person need to go on and how would someone know when the liver is clean?
Andreas Moritz: Yes that depends really on each individual and when I first wrote the book I thought what happened to me that I needed to, tend to trust liver flushes, to be completely clean, I passed about three and a half thousand stones and that is when all the pain that I used to have completely disappeared form my body, my digestion rebalanced and many, many different improvements that are… again I have talked about that in the book, that can help and it is different for each person, there were some people that only needed six cleanses to be completely clean and then I found other people that needed twenty five or more cleanses, so it depends on how profoundly the liver has been impacted right from childhood, what contaminants that it could not detoxify, break down, eliminate, that the body needed to produce stones in order to keep the body safe. And so the person should attempt to, once you have done a certain number and there are no more stones coming out, to do another two liver flushes to make sure that in fact the liver is completely clean.
Nancy Desjardins: And what about if someone had their gall bladder removed can they still do the liver gall bladder cleanse ?
Andreas Moritz: They are the most likely candidates so that should do liver flushes because first of all their gallbladder was removed and because the gallbladder had stones in them, however, you cannot have stones in the gall bladder without having many times the number of stones in the bile ducts of the liver, and many… I have had many people who have got their gallbladders removed and they still complain about having gallstone attacks and the doctors think they are mentally not quite right in the head, there is no way that you can have gallstones when you do not have a gall bladder, but when they finally come to read my book or they communicated with me I said well the issue is that you do have stones, but they are not in your gall bladder because it is not there, it is in your liver, and so then they do liver flushes and they are totally surprised that all the stones come out and then they discontinue having any difficulties with gallstone attacks. The problem with removing the gallbladder and then 99 percent of cases it is done unnecessarily, just as it would have been unnecessary in my case even though my gall bladder was completely packed full with gall stones, it was almost like bursting full and still I was able to release them, that when you remove the gall bladder, then, the side effect is that you still cannot digest fats properly because the gall bladder is missing and the gall bladder is the only organ that is capable of secreting or pushing enough quality, highly concentrated bile that is about ten times, one tenth of the liquidity of the regular bile in the liver, that means, it is ten times more concentrated than the bile in the liver and in that concentrated form, that is when the digestion is really, really going well. So when the gallbladder is removed, that entire function is missing and there is only some little drips or drops of bile coming out directly from the liver entering the small intestine which is not controlled, it is not time-spaced with the digestion and therefore it is just trickles in throughout the day, little drops, just as the liver produces bile, it starts entering the small intestine, which is not a good idea… the bile should only be coming into the intestine when it is needed when there is food going through it, not when there is nothing going through it. So the problem with removing the gallbladder is immense. In this case the person may use a ox bile supplement in order to facilitated the digestion or fat which then helps the digestion of carbohydrates and protein as well, and so that is what every doctor should recommend but hardly any of them do, they just rip out the gall bladder and send the patient home saying that you are fine now, you can start eating whatever you want, but, then I get the feedback from these individuals that they then say they cannot digest food, they still have the aches and pains in the liver area and they still get gallstone attacks. So the theory, the medical theory, is completely obsolete, misleading, and it is not correct.
Nancy Desjardins: So gallbladder removing is not the solution to a problem you mentioned, ox bile, if you had your gall bladder removed
Andreas Moritz: Right
Nancy Desjardins: Should we take it on a daily basis
Andreas Moritz: Yes, it causes diarrhea like regular bile does… if you make too much bile you would get diarrhea, and that is another disorder that is associated with a particular body type called the pitta body type where they often produce too much bile but that is a completely different story, however, yes, removing the gallbladder requires that the person has some sort of bile supplement that allows that person taking it with each meal to help digest the fats. If you take too much of it, the ox bile, then you will get diarrhea so you will have to reduce it to a point where it allows you to have properly formed stools and not diarrhea,
Nancy Desjardins: You mentioned earlier that you had forty gal stone attacks and after your first liver gallbladder cleanse, you did not have any gallstone attacks, sothat would be the solution for anyone who does have gallstone attacks to do a cleanse or several cleanses
Andreas Moritz: Absolutely, and many people are afraid… they are terrified… “oh my god you know I have these stones and the doctor said you have a one centimeter stone in your gallbladder”, you have maybe ten of them or your gallbladder is filled up with stones. There is a great misconception, when for example, when you eat a, let’s say, that person eats a very fatty meal like fried food, lot of fatty deserts and then two hours later or one hour later she has an extremely excruciating pain emanating from the middle part of the back where the liver is, on the right, a little more on the right hand side, and then the pain is shooting all the way up to the head into basically every part of the body, and you cannot breathe properly, every time you take a breath it is like bringing on another spasm, very powerful painful spasm and because what happens is that the gall bladder is stimulated by the fatty meal and then a stone that is sitting sort of in the exiting part, enters the cystic duct which is that part that connects the gallbladder to the common bile duct and it is starting to move into the common bile duct or into the cystic duct and it gets stuck, and since these are calcified stones or even the regular soft cholesterol stones form the liver, they could get stuck in the common bile duct simply because that obstruction irritates the bile duct and it contracts into, it goes into a very strong spasmodic contraction, which then holds the stone exactly there and it cannot move and then there is an inflammation and then all the nerves that are located there they start signaling there is something wrong, we need to work on this, so the body needs to work on this, so the problem is that when you have a gallstone attack it can last a long, long time and it can cause jaundice, that means, you can turn yellow because there is no more bile, the bile can no longer flow anywhere and it is backing up, it gets into the blood stream and then it shows up in the whites of the eye or in the skin and so many people then panic and then they go to the emergency room and the doctor says “we have to immediately remove your gallbladder” and then they, while doing that, then they remove, then they pull out that stone as well and then they sew this thing together and then they say, “well you are fine, everything is ok now.” Whereas when you do a liver flush, the liver and gallbladder flush, it is a very different story. You are opening the bile ducts in the liver to release stones, particularly those in the exiting bile duct, there are two major huge bile ducts that have like a tree behind them, they are like trunks of a tree and then all the branches and the smaller branches and the tiny branches and then that is the entire network, it is called the bilary tree, and we have two such trees in the liver. So when you do the liver flush you start relaxing through the use of magnesium oxide which is called Epsom salts, you are relaxing the bile duct, so they can open up, they are completely relaxed, you stimulate the gallbladder and the liver to secrete a lot of bile, a lot of bile, because you are taking half a cup of olive oil and lemon juice or other citric juice which opens the gall bladder, and it releases a lot of oily bile, and the bile is very oily, but when you eat a fatty meal you are not producing enough bile to actually continue to push stones all the way through into the small intestine, while, when you do a liver flush, you are taking a lot of, drinking that olive oil mixture, and you have prepared all the bile ducts, including the common bile duct to be completely relaxed. So now you have this oily bile taking the stones that are… they cannot get stuck into the common bile duct, the bile duct is far too relaxed, it does not do anything, it just allows all the stones to tumble through and get into the small intestine and then they travel into the large intestine, you would not even notice, some people sort of have a gurgling sensation, like one stone after another, like pebbles moving through but there is no pain there is no discomfort in any sense, so it is very, very important to know the difference between the two, that is why you do not get gallstone attacks when you do liver flushes, but you get gallstone attacks when you eat fatty meals, you may just eat some omelet for example, eggs are a leading cause of gallstone attacks, so when a person eats a meal like breakfast of eggs and he has or she has gallstones that are ready to, sort of, move out of the gallbladder, then they may just have an attack shortly thereafter and with the liver flushes you take a sort of, a biggest bulk out of the liver so that they are sitting on the edge of the gallbladder and the liver and so you move these stones and that is why it is unlikely for a person to have another gallstone attack and if it is, it can be easily remedied, let’s say, if the person eats a fatty meal and does have a mild attack then, drinking a glass of Epsom salts will allow the stone to simply go thorough, you do not have to go the emergency room for that, just drink a glass of Epsom salts, or with each meal for next two or three meals drink a cup of red beet juice, and that helps as well, helps to clear out the stones without surgery, it is actually quite easy.
Nancy Desjardins: Yeah it is. Perhaps it is so simple but it that might be the reason why people are not.. by which the people I mean… there is a lot of people now that are really following this protocol.
Andreas Moritz: Oh there are millions of them now, millions around the world.
Nancy Desjardins: Yeah twenty five years I can understand, but now today is I absolutely, I refuse to think that a lot people are not… do not believe… in liver and gallbladder cleanse. But now why liver flush combined with colon cleanse like a colonic or enema are absolutely necessary for healing ?
Andreas Moritz: That is a very good question and that is important to understand because the colon and the liver, gallbladder are part of the same system, it is called the digestive system, right, so they work hand in hand, it is a closed system, they know what the other one is doing. So if there is congestion in the large intestine for example, if a person is constipated and goes to the toilet maybe only once every two or three days and that person would attempt a liver flush, now we know that bile is the body’s natural laxative and it initiates bowel movement and so there is not enough bile coming out of the liver, then there is just not enough parasitosis power to propel the waste out of the large intestine and the person has constipation, so, when that constipated person attempts the liver flush without cleaning out the colon before then, there is, it is almost like a hose that you close at the end where you hold it and you turn on the faucet and no water can come out and it is stuck and nothing moves and so no new water can come into the hose either. It is like that, if the large intestine is clogged up and is constipated then, there is back pressure, air pressure and also toxins and waste that is not moving out, and new food that is eaten cannot move down and be digested, it is when there is constipation, so, it is all piling up, it is like a big traffic jam and what happens is that when the body is not capable of removing the waste from the colon, the gallbladder receive a signal, please do not waste any more bile on anything. So then, it is a vicious cycle basically, so the gallbladder is receiving the signal to stay shut. And not to release bile; without bile new food cannot be digested and that food that is not mixed with bile, cannot be eliminated because bile is the natural laxative and so the parasitosis does not take place. So when you do a liver flush, you prepare for the liver flush, it is very important to make sure that the colon is completely clean and open and that is why it is good to do a colon cleanse before each liver flush so that you have the best possible liver flush, that means that the gallbladder is opening up without any reservation, without any holding back, without any attempt to close itself and to shut its door so that it can completely open up and release all the bile that it has in it along with any stones that are in it and it allows the liver to do the same thing – to releases as much bile as possible along and carrying the stones through the system so that there is no problem with having an effective easy going liver flush
Nancy Desjardins: And what do you think about coffee enema? What of that?
Andreas Moritz: Well it can be done, a coffee enema has never been shown to release stones. So the biggest impediments in the liver, they are not coming out. Coffee enema is a stimulant to release toxins form the liver and it does that, there is no doubt about it, so coffee enemas are not colon cleanses by the way, they only, the coffee is a small amount of liquid that goes not further than the rectum so it stays basically in the lower parts of the intestines so it cannot clean out the intestines but it can stimulate the liver to open up and release fluid or liquefied toxins so it does have a bile stimulating effect certainly.
Nancy Desjardins: So would you recommend colonics, would that be your first choice?
Andreas Moritz: It would be the first choice. Definitely the first choice because the water that goes into the colon, the entire colon, it is just the entire colon up with the water and water is still one of the best solvents, it dissolves waste matter, it allows the intestines to expand so any pockets, any tightness in the colon, any strictures that maybe there that can prevent the body from eliminating all the waste properly, all of that can open up and once these pockets are open and the thicker matter is released, then that definitely is the best preparation for the liver flush. I also recommend colemas, colema board, which are very common or popular now at least in north America and is now getting more common also in Europe, where you can do this colonic basically at home simply by lying on a board have a high enema where a lot of water flows into the entire colon, the entire length of the colon, and basically do something similar as colonic irrigation. If that is not available, then two to three back to back water enemas would be adequate as well, even though it is much less effective. So it would be like doing two or three enemas, filling up the colon, cleaning out whatever come out and doing another enema and getting a little further into the colon with that new water, and then cleaning that out and doing another one, so the you make sure that the water goes all the way up to the ascending colon.
Nancy Desjardins: And the colema board is available on your website, any one listening again it is ENER-CHI.com and you go under wellness products and the board is right there and so what would you say to anyone who does emotional release or work on themselves and do not do any body cleanse including the liver gallbladder cleanse to get rid of anger or negativity toxins ?
Andreas Moritz: It is tough to work on something like that when the body is unhappy because it is congested, it is will send you signals of discomfort and when the body is uncomfortable, then you become anxious, nervous, irritable, and you become even depressed. So when this liver is, particularly the liver is an emotional center in the body, so it is not just processing toxins but also emotions like anger and frustration and being upset, because and that is very understandable, we now know that, when a person is called angry and is constantly having angry eruptions, we also call him like he has a bilious nature, right? people say he has a bilious nature, bile, the bile is basically not coming out, it is trapped and it is backwashing into the blood and once bile is moving into the blood then it causes irritability, it makes you even more nervous and anxious and upset, so yes, a lot of people who have done liver flushes clean out their liver, they find that they cannot be angry anymore. It is almost like that part is starting to dissipate and miss, be missing, it is, that is what I noticed first too when my liver was clean, I just could not think of things that could really make me angry and that is a wonderful thing, because many people who have been depressed, and depression is basically prolonged anger after a while when the frustration and anger last too long, them we move into a state of depression. So when people do liver flushes they sometimes feel like for moment or two they become extremely angry and then they then do not become angry anymore after that, it is almost like a release that happens when you pass the stones and with the toxins you also release emotional toxins.
Nancy Desjardins: And would lack of sleep also have an effect on the liver too?
Andreas Moritz: Oh totally
Nancy Desjardins: Yeah
Andreas Moritz: Yes absolutely because sleep is.. there is really nothing you can do in terms of digesting foods, eliminating waste successfully, having a proper brain function all of those and the liver, particularly, depends on your rest so that it can do its work. The most important time for the liver to do its work is between ten and two in the night and when you do not sleep at that time, then the liver is not getting enough energy, it is not getting enough blood in order to do its work. The liver is like a sponge in the night time particularly, it fills up completely with blood and where is the blood coming from? Well it comes from the brain and the muscles and the different pars of the body that you are not using when you sleep. So when you are lying there, the liver is pulling in all that blood form the back of the brain which is, in itself, it is already a quart of a blood and from the muscles and all those other areas that you are, when you are resting, you do not need as much blood. So now the liver is pulling all that blood, the liver cells are directly surrounded by blood and it is not like other organs where there are blood vessels that somehow supply nutrients to the cell though osmosis. In the liver cells, with the liver it is completely different, the liver is swimming, the liver cells are floating in the blood therefore they are capable of working with the blood, they can filter things out, it is like a huge filter and they can put new things in, the liver produces thousands of different enzymes that are needed on a cellular level for cell metabolism, for digestion and for detoxification, for removing oxygen free radicals there is so much that depends on the sleep. So when you are not sleeping at this time, let’s say, you go to bed at midnight, past midnight then the liver does not get all that blood in order to filter, to remove toxins, put new things in, replenish everything, so then, the next day you have a deficiency and certain nutrients and certain enzymes, certain minerals, vitamins, the iron maybe, the iron level in the blood may not be correct therefore the oxygenation of the blood will be inadequate, you are not transferring enough oxygen to the cells, you start feeling tired, you start looking for something to stimulate you like more cups of coffee, more stimulating foods and beverages so all of that comes when there is lack of sleep; and the other effect is that there is a very important hormone that is produced at around nine thirty, ten o’clock, provided you are shutting your eyes and there is darkness around you and you are sleeping and that is called melatonin and melatonin regulates all the endocrine hormones in the body. So it is though the thyroid, and the thyroid is responsible for all the endocrine gland, so, it is an important factor to make sure we get the proper sleep. We found, there is a lot of research now with regard to sleep, cancer, and many ailments… diabetes, obesity… that when the liver particularly is not allowed to do its work sufficiently during the night time, then the entire body can go into a mode of chaos, and you as an emotional being can have emotions such as irritability, cannot concentrate as well, we now know learning ability is less, the ability to remember things is less and the immune system is suppressed. So there are many things that can are depend on proper sleep, oh absolutely. I would say that probably one of the most important things to do if you want to improve health, sleep early and have at least eight hours of sleep. The people, before electricity was invented, used to sleep nine to ten hours, and typically an American, on an average, sleep less than six hours.
Nancy Desjardins: That is really not enough. In your book you recommend two more questions Andreas I know this is, it is, I so want to enjoy this sense of you, in your book you recommend taking MMS which is miracle mineral supplement can you explain what MMS does?
Andreas Moritz: Yes, it is basically a chemical that the body does produce but if it is not produced sufficiently, then we may take that in and use it to detoxify certain chemicals and substances including heavy metals. So if mercury has accumulated, then MMS has the capability of breaking it down into a completely harmless substances so it is basically for detoxification, removing chemicals in the tissues and it is a good support system particularly if there is a severe contamination that has happened. It can also kill parasites and it can also clear up Candida overgrowth. I am not sort of going out and shouting that everyone should take MMS. I would leave it for particularly severe cases of contamination, and most in cases cleaning out the liver the kidneys and the colon and having a regular lifestyle, good eating habits, drinking enough water, being well hydrated, that takes care of most of the issues but in severe cases… if I had malaria again… I had it once when I was in India and I died, I was literally dead for eight minutes and when I came back my malaria disappeared within an hour, but I would not if a person has malaria I would say do not attempt that because you might not come back, but I would take MMS and kill the parasite from the system quite quickly.
Nancy Desjardins: Before we end this call, can you talk about your ener-chi paintings which are utilized for healing?
Andreas Moritz: Yes, it is not that they are designed to deal with any physical disorders, however it deals with the energy system and energy in the sense of chi, your life force, trikone, yoga all those systems they deal with, and shiatsu, acupuncture, acupressure they all work with the meridian system in the body and the meridians are basically connected to every organ and system, so likewise, many illnesses come from when there is a blockage of energy, the chi, the real life force, and that by the way the liver is the central distribution organ for chi. So that is why it is so important also to keep that organ neat and clean so that it can distribute chi or life force to the cells in the body and the chi can be subdued because chi flow can stop and let/s say there is congestion in an organ like in the gall bladder or liver or the spleen or the brain and nervous system or the small intestine, large intestine, or the skeletal system or the muscular system or the lymphatic system, so there can be lack of flow of chi through the ducts and channels of elimination and circulation in the body and any physical congestion will lead to a congestion in the chi flow and vice versa any congestion in the meridians in these energy ducts that can now be measured actually by medical diagnostic tools. When there is a blockage of chi, then that corresponding organ can then start to malfunction, so for example think of people who have like a leg removed, an amputation, they still complain, ninety-six percent of them will still complain of having pain in the same place where the leg once was before, and the reason for this is because the energy ducts are still there. So what I found over the years is that pain is actually not caused by anything physical, but by these non-physical channels, when they are blocked you get pain, the pain… the nerve pain comes afterwards. So when I designed, created pictures, one picture for every organ and system in the body, simply by looking at one of these energy pictures, you restore the chi flow through like the stomach meridian, the large intestine, the spleen meridian, the liver gallbladder meridian, the thyroid meridian, the endocrine system, so when you have, when you open the chi, then it allows basically the energy to flow freely again and it works, some of the pictures, just looking at it for 45 seconds it does that, and it lasts for at least several weeks just looking at it for 45 seconds, so it is very innocent, easy going, but it really works. I have tested it on every single person, it works one hundred percent, it always does. So it is sort of a gift that came to me.. I was never painting in my life before and then I created these paintings there are 33 paintings now, and you can find them on my website ENER-CHI.com that why it is called ener-chi.com
Nancy Desjardins: Everything is available on your website?
Andreas Moritz: Yes
Nancy Desjardins: It is very informative so you also have the list of all the books you wrote and so “THE AMAZING LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FLUSH” and so you have both books
Andreas Moritz: No that is basically my favorite edition “THE AMAZING LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FLUSH“, “THE MIRACLE CLEANSE” is published by another publisher that I gave the book to, so it has a different title. I am working on, right now, on a new edition but it will take before the end of the year, probably December it will come out.
Nancy Desjardins: But all your books are available on ener-chi.com?
Andreas Moritz: Yes and also on Amazon so if you put my name in, Andreas Moritz, you will find thirteen books there and in different languages.
Nancy Desjardins: Yes and I also have the “TIMELESS SECRET OF HEALTH AND REJUVENATION“
Andreas Moritz: Yes
Nancy Desjardins: That is another one, that can be another interview with just this book alone. So Andreas, thank you so much, I mean what a real honor to have an opportunity to interview you today and have you share your insight with our listeners and I really sure hope that everyone took some hope because it was a lot of information. Andreas thank you so much
Andreas Moritz: You are most welcome. It was my pleasure
Nancy Desjardins: And again to visit ENER-CHI.com, Andreas Moritz, and Andreas all the best to you and I cannot wait to read the new edition, you said at the end of this year?
Andreas Moritz: Yeah
Nancy Desjardins: Ok sounds good so thank you everyone for listening to this interview and again thank you Andreas
Andreas Moritz: Thank you bye-bye
Nancy Desjardins: Bye-bye.
Andreas speaks about the Liver flush with host Paul Nison
Paul Nison: Hello everybody its Paul Nison Raw life Health show, It is Monday time for our featured guest and this week’s feature guest is, you know, people keep saying my guests get better and better and no difference this week is one of my personal favourites and you will see why In a moment, but folks, by the way if you are watching this and you are not a paid member to the Raw life Health Show you going to get to see part one to this interview but if you want to see the full interview which you are going to want to see. You have to sign up as a member at the top of the screen or if you want to get us on you tube you, got to go to the RAWLIFEHEATHSHOW.COM to see it. But everybody take a guess what this is? and no, it is not a bottle, it is something in the bottle, you see that? there we go, that is something that came from out of my body. It is stones from my liver, my gallbladder, my liver I mean, amazing, I don’t how many of you out there have ever done gallbladder flush but boy o boy it is so needed in today’s world and todays guest is probably one of the most knowledgably teachers, teaching about the gallbladder and the liver and cleansing the body in general but his name is Andreas Moritz and he wrote this book here, this book is called “THE AMAZING LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FLUSH” and it is one of the top ten books I have ever read in my life, top ten important books I have ever read in my life. I mean after doing the, I always knew the importance of doing the liver flush, and these stones, by the way, are not olive oil, these are stones! and after you see the interview with him you are going to believe that and see that and know that. But, I mean, after reading this book I want to make this cleansing a big part of my cleansing routine of cleansing the liver, why? because it is so important and so many people that clean their colon up but they will not clean the rest of their body out and this creates an issue because it is not just cleaning the colon or so many organs of the body and the colon is just the sign of that. So we have to clean all the organs of our body and the liver and the gallbladder is no different. So Andreas, he wrote another wonderful book on cancer. Boy you got to get that. I mean, I just got a new supply of both these books in stock, RAWLIFE.COM we have these books but, I mean, it is going to sell out, we are going to sell out of them, but I mean, you can get more but you want to contact him, he is going to give out his contact information as well and I will put it up below the screen as well when he comes on. But folks sit back and enjoy today’s video featured video be on Raw life health. Every Monday we have a featured video and if you have missed any of them from the past, you could just go back to the archives on RAWLIFEHEALTHSHOW.COM to see them. So enjoy today’s video everybody and have a great week. If you have any comments or any question which I know you will, just post them below the videos and until then have a great day and I will see you again soon.
Hi everybody it’s a Paul Nison from the Raw life health show here we are today with another great guest and as a special guest that I have been wanting to get in a while here so, why don’t you introduce yourself and tell everyone who you are.
Andreas Moritz: My name is Andreas Moritz and I was born and raised in Germany and there I left when I was 18 years old, now 57 and I have travelled and lived in many many parts of the world and in the last 14 years in the united states and what I have done in all those 38 years of practicing natural forms of medicines is to identify the root causes of illness rather than being satisfy with merely suppressing the symptom of the illness which did not work out for myself because I suffered from terminal illness when I was a child and rheumatoid arthritis, heart arrhythmia, a very dangerous form, and I collapsed every couple of weeks, I literally fainted and recovered after a couple of minutes but the problems that I personally endured and went through, they were so severe that I was incapable of sustaining myself, food would not digest and it created huge amount of toxins in my system that eventually my liver started failing and my kidneys did not work. I swelled up terribly, that my body was so congested that there was hardly anything that worked. So I began to look at different forms and different variations of diet and discovered that by making shifts in my diet, different things changed in my body and happened in my body and eventually I became vegan vegetarian and within six weeks my arrhythmia disappeared and I had no more rheumatoid arthritis which was the juvenile form, my anaemia disappeared surprisingly because my doctor said I suffered from low B12 and iron deficiency. And so, all of that disappeared and so I realised that there is something they said about how diet influences the human physiology and in those days that was pretty unheard of, I am talking about forty years ago.
Paul Nison: Sure and currently now, how is your diet now? Are you still vegan vegetarian right now?
Andreas Moritz: Yes I am still and my body does not seem to change very much. I have more energy than I had when I was a kid and yes, I do not appear. if you look at my body you would not think that much has change in the last twenty five years except some change of hair colour.
Paul Nison: Now, in your diet, how much of is your diet consists of raw foods?
Andreas Moritz: I would say I do not overly eat raw foods by the way. I use I eat a very-very substantial salad that has greens in it and some cucumber and avocado and some seeds like pumpkin seeds and then I do eat some fruits lets say mid-morning or mid-afternoon that is about the raw part and I do eat cooked vegetables but I use a waterless cookware which keeps the enzymes and the vitamins intact so it does not destroy the food that just like normal cooking would.
Paul Nison: Well, now do you do take supplements since you are on a vegan diet or do you find that not necessary.
Andreas Moritz: No I do not take any supplements. I have never done that. I always tried to maximise the absorption of the food that I was eating and I discovered by optimising my digestive system. I did that through my own liver flushes that I developed a system that would get rid of a lot of intra hepatic gall stones from the liver bile ducts and by increasing my bile secretion I discovered that whatever I ate I optimised the nutrient absorption from that food and that was certainly enough to supply my cells with the desired and needed nutrients. So I never took recourse to supplementation.
Paul Nison: So there is many different aspects of being successful at this. There is, you got to get the food that has the nutrients but then, your body has to be prepared to actually absorb those nutrients.
Andreas Moritz: Correct and with supplementation, over the years I found that many – many people they are not their digestive system is not capable of handling these supplements because supplements are always harder and more difficult to digest than food that contains more life force and more fluids and liquid than the sort of extracts taken from these foods.
Paul Nison: And one of the things you focus on is the cleansing and healing of the bodies organs specifically the liver and the gall bladder. You wrote a wonderful book about this. Now there are many different types of liver and gall bladder flushes on the internet these days. Is your just more efficient or can some actually be dangerous?
Andreas Moritz: Oh they can be dangerous if you do not get the complete information about the liver flushes for example, there is some on the internet that simply take an oil and then use some cokes or strawberry with cream and things like that and they can create a massive release of bile form the gall bladder but without proper preparation what can happen is that the stones will not relaxing the bile ducts because there is something that is needed that you need to do the bile ducts so that the bile ducts do not get crampy that means that they are not contracting when a stone is passing through them so the bile ducts must be very relaxed like completely relaxed, letting any stones that come through them that they do not get struck there otherwise you can develop a gall stone attack. And I know how gall stone attack can feel like because I had forty of them before I did my first liver and gall bladder flush. So I had a lot of stones, my entire gall bladder was packed full with stones and most of them were calcified. So often times I had a stone simply by lifting something heavy or eating a more fatty meal if I had some little too much butter or olive oil or something then I used to have a gall stone attack and so stones would get stuck in the common bile duct and sometimes the stone was stuck there for up to three to four weeks so, I could not sleep at night, I could not find the right position to sleep and it was excruciatingly painful particularly during night time and so it is very exhausting and so, literally I discovered a way how to prevent that from happening and there are also ways that people have lets say eat a fatty meal and they have a gall stone attack, instead of going to the emergency room there are ways to stop that right away by drinking a glass of Epsom salts and doing some other things like drinking red beet juice and massaging the toes of the feet very vigorously, perhaps putting an application of warm apple cider vinegar on over the liver area and that relaxes the entire liver area so stones can pass. I have helped literally thousands and thousands of people with that simple information that they had a gall stone attack and they stopped it right away with these simple things I described.
Paul Nison: Now somebody follows these important instructions in your book , should they do the, is it different for everyone or should somebody do as maintenance just on a regular basis and if so for how often?
Andreas Moritz: Basically you want to get rid of all the stones that you have because if are just thinking, wow, now I got like five hundred stones out of my liver I do not have to do it again, then maybe another three or four thousands are in there and what happens is that when you do a liver flush, stones from the rear parts of the liver, they travel forward to the exiting bile ducts and there are two major bile ducts that are right in the exit before they combine into the common bile duct and it is going to the hepatic bile duct and when, before this happens, always see that a lot of stones sit there and if you are not taking them out once again and again and again so through a series of liver flushes, then these bile ducts get clogged up again and you have the same problem as before. So typically a person who does a liver flush finds that many of there symptoms become relieved. I have people that having incredible gastro intestinal issues and bloating and so they, they felt like a totally like a new person after the first liver flush but it did not last longer than three four days and then they had to, they realized that they had to repeat it and repeat it and repeat it until no more stones were coming out and that is how you can get rid of things permanently rather than just temporarily.
Paul Nison: So how often would you recommend somebody do it? Every week, every month or?
Andreas Moritz: I personally recommend to do it not more often than every three weeks , three to four weeks is ideal. It can be done every two weeks, I personally did mine every two weeks but it can be pretty rough because the liver needs some time to repair itself because when we have stones in the bile ducts of the liver, there is a lot of pressure exerted to the surrounding liver cells and the so called liver globules, these are units that have very-very delicate structures to them and if there is a presence of a large number of stones it causes these globules to become damaged and the liver cells become damaged to a point that you can find elevated ALS and AST levels , these are liver enzyme levels, where liver cells break up and liver enzymes that are inside these cells get into the blood stream and they show up on the liver blood test. So it I important to not overdo it, not do think well, let me just do one every week or so, because that can be very stressful to the liver.
Paul Nison: So you are suggesting, correct me if I am wrong, once a month would be a reasonable,
Andreas Moritz: Yes, every four weeks is very safe and very-very good to keep the momentum so that the new stones from the rear of the livers travelling forward into the exiting bile ducts do not get solidified and so impact these exiting bile ducts again.
Paul Nison: Now would that be for the rest of somebody’s life or just for a certain time?
Andreas Moritz: Typically it depends on the person, what kind of issues a person has? A person with rheumatoid arthritis, for example, needs a lot more cleanses than six or eight to be clean. I personally for me it was ten cleanses that got rid of three and a half thousand stones and I was clean and I have been clean ever since and I did my liver flushes fifteen years ago. I do a maintenance liver flush once a year now. Because my diet and lifestyle is such that I do not produce any new stones, but it is still good to clear out any toxins that might be there in the liver which is taken care of by yearly or bi-yearly liver flush.
Paul Nison: How will somebody actually know when they have done enough for them? Is it when they have done several and then they have expelled a lot of stones and then the more they do it, the less they have until they have none?
Andreas Moritz: Exactly and it is good to , if you know more stones are coming out do another one or two liver flushes to make absolutely sure that there are no more stones left and so that is how a person will know.
Paul Nison: And then you said about once a year for maintenance just to check?
Andreas Moritz: Yes. Unless of course you are in a very stressful period in your life because stress, by the way, changes the bacteria composition of bile and that means the flora of the bile and so when that changes the person produce gall stones in the bile ducts. And so stress and the diet of a person, continues eating junk foods and gets exposed to other kinds of environment toxins or medication such as Statins which are a leading cause of gall stones then, you basically would have to do a liver flush twice a year to make sure that anything that has been created in the meanwhile is being taken out.
Paul Nison: How helpful or do you not recommend or do you recommend colonics or enemas during the liver cleanse ?
Andreas Moritz: Yes, absolutely because when you omit that important part, first of all you may not get many stones out of the system. The reason for example a person is constipated and does the liver flush, now constipation is directly related to poor bile secretion, bile is a natural laxative, so it helps the bowel to empty at the regular, normal intervals. Now when a person is constipated, it shows there is not enough bile, he has a quite a considerable amount of stones in the bile ducts of the liver and perhaps in the gall bladder. when a person does not clean out the colon before the liver flush, and I recommend to do it on the day of the liver flush, when he does not do that then the gall bladder may not open at all. During the liver flush and that can prevent the release of stones. So a person may not have a very successful liver flush, and, the reason why the gall bladder does not open because when it is almost like a tube a regular tube if you close it at one end then nothing can come in form the other end. So you have to open it on the one side, the end, the rectum if there is a stricture and constipation it does not move, it does not flow so there is no vacuum released in a way that allows the gall stones to be sucked on through, so the gall bladder may remain shut. So it is important to remember that when we do a liver flush to clean out the entire colon before hand or at least have an enema to get some movement going and then do another colonic or colema or at lest two or three back to back water enemas within three days after each liver flush to make sure that the stones that still remained in the colon which always happens or almost always happens with every person. Some stones will remain in the colon and then they need to be taken out because they are loaded with toxins and as they disintegrate and melt away because these are soft stones they are not like rock hard crystallized stones, they are soft they are putty like and they have a typically green or beige or yellowish color to them and they in the warmth if you put them out in the heat, they will melt because ninety percent of them are fatty acids, it is fats that coagulated in the liver bile and so are cholesterol to a large extent that is why these stones when they get passed they float in the toilet. We can see them floating, because they are lighter than water but they are just as obstructive as regular gall stones in the gall bladder they are just softer but again they block the bile flow and that is one of the key reasons for digestive problems and numerous health problems there is just an endless number of health problems that can result simply form the congestion of bile ducts in the liver. it is unbelievable, because the liver is an organ that is responsible for keeping the body clean, it is the bodies filter, it is the blood filter, it is the primary blood filter that we have and it takes contaminants and metabolic waste products out of the blood and passes them into the bile and then the bile takes it down directly through the hepatic duct, the main duct that comes out of the liver which by passes the gall bladder and goes straight into small intestine where it passes the toxins that are in the bile out into the large intestine for excretion. Now Imagine if that function is diminished the blood can no longer be detoxified properly and instead the blood has to dump toxins into the delicate tissues of the body and when the tissues accumulate the toxins they eventually will not be able to breathe enough oxygen they wont get the nutrients, they start to deteriorate and this co-creates and enhance the aging of the body and aging in that respect will also mean increased incidents of illnesses. Whenever the toxins have accumulated most, that is where the damage will become more obvious, more apparent, that is where we get to a diagnosis for.
Paul Nison: You said they would melt in the heat, why wont they melt in the body?
Andreas Moritz: Well there is a, they need a lot of bacteria and the airborne bacteria are capable of breaking them down, in the liver, there is a certain, it is like there is no access to like oxygenation there things like that can be oxidized away. The, in the body in the colon they will deteriorate, they will eventually break down and that is why I so seriously want people not to omit cleaning out the colon afterwards because that sludge, that basically melting sludge releases a lot of the toxins that are in these stones that the reason why the liver makes these extra stones or the stones is to trap the toxins inside them. To keep the rest of the bile as it sort of gets produces and passes through some of the not clogged bile ducts, that the bile does not get contaminated overly contaminated and become useless for the digestive process. So the body is very self protective, these stones are not there by accident, they are there by purpose, there is a meaning, there is a good meaning behind them but in the long term they of course become obstructive and that can hinder the five hundred or six hundred different jobs that the liver needs to do every single day to take care of the health of the rest of the body.
Paul Nison: Besides the enemas and the colonics what is your opinion about the herbal colon cleanses out there?
Andreas Moritz: In relation to liver flushes or in general just to keep the colon clean?
Paul Nison: Both. In relation to the liver flush, they help or hurt it? And just in general to keep the colon clean.
Andreas Moritz: They wont hurt the liver flushes but they are not extremely useful because they are mostly oil cleanses and for the liver flushes it is better to, lets say, the person does have a stricture in the ascending colon, and an oil herbal cleanse will not open up the stricture but a colonic will. And so in that sense washing out the colon is far more effective for this purpose but for like there is some other cleanses, I personally not very keen on the herbal cleanses that contain silium husk and the reason for that is because when I tested this process about twenty years ago when it first sort of was first discussed in natural health and I tested it on a lot of people these cleanses are supposed to produce a lot of fecal matter and lots of thicker matter or fecal matter and so I tested it on a lot of people, on my self as well, it is true they produce these ropes, rubbery ropes of thicker matter and when I examined them, most of them were expanded silium and bentonite clay, so because when you put the silium husk and bentonite together and you put it in a glass of water, it swells up tremendously, by hundreds and hundreds of times and so it becomes a rubber like structure and when it passes through the system it absorbs fecal water and of course some toxins but it also acts like a broom and the silium husk have very-very sharp edges to them. Because it is husk, it is un- digestible, it cannot be digested by the human body. And so it will act like a broom and delicate structures of the intestinal wall can easily get damaged by that. So I have seen a lot of people who take these things, eventually their peristalsis becomes very weakened, they discontinue that when that stimulation is no longer there, so the microscopic injuries all along the gastrointestinal track are quite significant. So I am very careful giving that advice using silium in powder form because it is still in microscopic form you can still see a huge number of tiny-tiny little sharp edges like crystalline structures to them. And so I prefer some milder forms that I for many years recommended people can use magnesium oxides like colosan or oxy-powder or oxy flush because it releases a large amount of oxygen into the intestinal environment, it oxides waste matter and it liquefies the waste matter, combines with hydrogen ions in the toxin and waste matter and then liquefies the waste and sort of comes out in the liquid form but it is not like diarrhea which can be weaken to the body and laxatives can have that weakening effect, even herbal laxatives can have that weakening effect. So I prefer to use something that is actually more a cleanser rather than a laxative.
Paul Nison: What about the taking clay just by itself without any of the silium, what do you think of that?
Andreas Moritz: It depends on the person who is taking them. I have seen with bentonite being beneficial in the so called pitha body type, I have described that in my book “THE TIMELESS SECRETS OF HEALTH AND REJUVENATION“, where that type does not tend to have constipation ever but a person like the vata type who has some more dryness in his intestines and he has a very lower water content. He is a dry person anyway, dry skin, skinny, thin person and more prone to constipation and that person can actually absorb the water and become like a plaster in the intestinal wall, so not very person benefits from that. The people that have a lot of liquid going through them, they can take that yes. It can be a great emergency relief it you have been exposed to toxins or sort of poisons that are accidently ingested or overdose of drugs, I have see incredible results with bentonite clay, I prefer the liquid bentonite clay, that you can buy, which is better as the body does not have to look for water in order to liquefy the bentonite powder and so that would be a better choice, there is also charcoal in that place, you can use charcoal to absorb toxins or poisons very-very quickly and it can prevent these toxins and poison to enter the blood stream and cause blood poisoning.
Paul Nison: You have mentioned that the liver cleanse can help people with digestive disorders, and I deal with a lot of people that have inflammatory bowel disease. How helpful is the liver cleanse, the liver flush for people with inflammatory bowel disease? And is it okay for them to take it during a inflammatory attack or should they do it when they are not in that stage?
Andreas Moritz: Typically you do not want to liver flush of you are weak, so for example, people who have an infection, an acute infection, where then that is better to wait until the infection has healed up. But if there is chronic inflammation, there are a lot of people who have crones disease and did liver flushes and they found it extremely beneficial because in the presence of bile inflammation subsides or diminishes so it is a great healer. It does a lot of things there is a new study that I just came across that, people who have a asthma and sort of constant inflammation of their respiratory system, they found that when they had a hepatitis infection and they suffered from jaundiced, the jaundice healed up their asthma and their respiratory inflammation. So bile constituents when they go through the system and these are particularly they are two bile pigments that helped through that and so bile pigments are extremely beneficial for calming down and reducing inflammation in the GI track, the problem with the lack of bile when there is insufficient bile coming out, hydrochloric acid form the stomach is not neutralized by the alkaline bile sufficiently and it can burn holes in the intestines. So you can get a lot of colitis like experience when you do not make enough bile because the stomach still produces HCL, hydrochloric acid and it is very burning, you do not what to drink hydrochloric acid but that is basically what we do when we do not produce enough bile.
Paul Nison: So you are recommending people with inflammatory bowel disease for the most part, if they are in an inflammatory stage, it is better not to do it during that stage.
Andreas Moritz: Yes, it is better to, sort of, focus a little more on the diet, but, when there is no acute pain and these terrible cramps and things like that, then, certainly liver flush would be appropriate because it would go right to the root cause of the problem. The inability of the body to balance out the acidity of from the stomach through the mingling with, mixing with the bile.
Paul Nison: And there is many different reasons from hemorrhoids to inflammatory bowel disease to other reasons that blood in the stool, if somebody has blood in the stool, would the liver cleanse be suggested to be avoided or would it might maybe help?
Andreas Moritz: Actually blood in the stool is not a disease , it is actually the body bleeding, trying to bleed in order to get rid of pockets of toxins that have accumulated there and so most people get frightened oh my god I have blood in the stool! This is terrible! And then medical intervention stops that which is one of the worst things you can do. It is better to let the body bleed it out and then the body can heal itself pretty quickly so, however during the, when there is blood in the stool I would not do a liver flush because a lot of toxins do go through the track along with the stones and you do not want to irritate that part of the body so it is better to take care of other causes that have contributed to the bleeding, that for example, certain foods that can be very harsh on the body like if you eat animal proteins like a piece of meat, the chances for the human body to digest more than twenty percent of that is very-very slim because we do not have high enough concentration of hydrochloric acid in our stomach to digest the entire piece of meat so we are not like cats that have like huge high concentration of hydrochloric acid so when we eat the same thing we digest only a fraction of that and the rest of it the eighty percent is not digested will have to be decomposed and that produces what are called nitrosamines, they are very-very powerful carcinogenic poisons and they get absorbed through the wall of the intestines and if they are not absorbed it can accumulate there and it can cause severe damage to the intestinal wall, so when we, that is why we find with colorectal cancer that people eat meat have a higher risk of colorectal cancer than people who do not. So it is very sort of a risk being on a vegetarian diet, of developing colon cancer is pretty low compared to people who are eating meat. So there are certain things you can do to reduce the sort of highly acid forming foods so that the healing can occur and then do the liver flushes once that is sort of been initiated and completed.
Paul Nison: Oh you have mentioned cancer in terms of helping people with cancer how much so does the liver flushes help people that are dealing with different types of cancer ?
Andreas Moritz: Basically you want to have clean blood with any kind of cancer so you want to make sure that the blood filter number one in the body, which the liver is, is clean too. Because if you have a dirty filter you know what that means, you are filtering something and more of the same toxins become released from the filter and then they enter the fluid and contaminate it even more. So having a bad unclean dirty filthy filter is not a good idea because it the filter breeds bacteria and parasites, all kinds of nasty things that may enter the circulation and in the blood, so it is not a good grounds to heal anything including cancer. So, and it really works, I had recently an oncologist come to me and he said you know my wife she had breast cancer for six years, and she was lucky to be alive and now the cancer has metastasized to the liver and to her bones and he said I have tried everything, I have been in this field for twenty years and I tried every new chemo therapy drug that was coming on the market that was promising but it never worked. it is getting worse. And so I took one look at her and there you could see from her pale complexion, very greyish facial skin color that her liver was totally absolutely blocked with all those drugs the chemo therapy drugs completely blocked her bile ducts and so there was just no digestion she does not digest anything, she just does not, she feel energy and she gets bloated every time she eats and pain and cramping and so did the first liver flush and I have never seen anything like that, and it does not typically happen I can tell you that because million of people have done liver flushes and I get a lot of hundreds of emails per day for feed back, what people experience and I have never seen anything like that. This woman passed three thousand stones in her first liver flush and it took three days of constantly clearing, the liver bile ducts never closed down again and the gall bladder never closed, it constantly and it emptied the whole thing, it was an unbelievable thing and three weeks later the doctors came back to me and said we did the, we tested for all the cancers and there was not a trace in the liver, there was nothing left in the bones and in the lungs there was a tiny speck of cancer left tiny-tiny speck of which she was very confident that would go away during the next liver flushes. This was an extreme case but it really shows the mechanism, that the body can heal itself when it become decongested when it can once again circulate enough oxygen to the system, a thick blood that is congeal and then corrugated with all kinds of things that should not have there corrugating the protein but having a lot of toxins in there and acids that can remain in the blood stream, there is very little oxygenation of the cells and so some groups of cells with the least amount of oxygenation will succumb and will have to mutate into a different form of cell that allows them to live these are know as the cancer cells, but, these they are not bad cells they continue doing some of the jobs, they just have a different metabolism, they do not use oxygen to gain energy, they use glucose that is why they have such a strong appetite for sugar and when a person eats a lot of sweet and sugar much of that will be just feeding the cancer cells.
Paul Nison: You mentioned that somebody if they do not get stones when they do a liver cleanse , they are not doing it successfully in a successful way. Can everyone expect if they follow your guidelines and instructions to pass stones?
Andreas Moritz: This day and age, people living in big cities which are just open them up, people living indoors and there is a new study that shows that indoor pollution is five hundred times higher than outdoor pollution and they tested that in LA, Los Angeles, so you can imagine the contaminants, recently again that there was study on children and new born and they found that in an average a new born child already has five hundred toxic chemicals in the blood stream. So as long as you do have these things because the blood is filtered out by the liver cells, the liver cells they do not, they bathe in blood, it is not like in all the other organs in the body, there are blood vessels they are called sinusoids and they have little holes in them so the entire blood moves through them and bathes the liver cells and the liver cells then take toxins out of there that the surrounding blood and then put new things in they manufacture them, the liver manufactures tons of enzymes and they make sure that the blood is not too thick and not too thin, that there is enough iron in the blood and if it is not it will supply that and so it keeps track of all the hormones in the body making sure that we do not have too many of one or too little of another so there are so many things the liver has to keep track so by dealing with the liver you deal basically with the rest of the body.
Paul Nison: Sure, and can somebody if their dealing, if they have a gall bladder stone but their doctor wants to do surgery, something else, if they follow the instruction in the book and they safely do it at home or there are circumstances where they should to do additional testing before they decide to do this flush?
Andreas Moritz: Well, I can only speak form the experience, of my own experience having gone though forty gall stone attacks, which did not killed me by the way, they were, maybe it felt like they killed me but, they did not. So it is a little overrated to say well if a person has a gall stone attack, his life is in danger, it is just that the pain is so excruciating, that you panic and then it sends you to the emergency room and they say look this is stuck, there is no other way and it is better to take out the whole gall bladder and then take the stone which were retrieved form the cystic duct or the common bile duct. So the answer is that I would suggest first drink a glass of Epsom salts, ninety eight percent of the cases, the stones, the bile ducts will become so relaxed that because of that that will pass on its own. I have just heard it hundreds and thousand of times making that recommendation as simple as it sounds, it just is far more effective than anything than a lot of medicines so far has to offer and in addition putting a warm poultice like a warm towel with soaked in warm apple cider vinegar over the liver area and it relaxes it, massaging the toes, the little toes, the small toes particularly the second to the last, the fourth toe, vigorously, that is the one that is where the gall bladder meridian ends and just by squeezing it very hard the stone may actually pass by itself. It also relaxes the bile duct, the common bile duct. So very-very effective things, strategies nothing would work in very rare case, than I would suggest yes, check in to the hospital, because we do not know if a gall bladder is completed packed or has perforated, but theses are extreme cases that means a person must have gone through many episodes of gall stone attacks and bloating, terrible bloating, indigestion, chronic indigestion for many-many years to reach such a dire situation.
Paul Nison: What do you say to people that criticize the flush by saying it is just oil that is coming out and not much else. What do you say to those people ?
Andreas Moritz: Oh they could do a simple test, I would suggest charcoal and charcoal is a black coal, charcoal as charcoal is, and it is safe to take, there is no side effects taking charcoal so when you add that to the oil mixture basically what you have is that, it will color the oil mixture black. So the olive oil is looking like oily or golden color will look black and so because of that when you do a liver flush and you are passing green stones, then you know that these green stones are not made from olive oil. That is a very simple test anyone can do that test and I have conducted that test many times, always works, so the stones are completely without black color. Where as if you do, lets say, charcoal today, you drink that you take a tablet or two you will find that your stool is becoming black. So it does color the a stool so it is not that you digest the charcoal it is not digestible. There are many other tests you can you. We have sent and other have sent the stones to laboratories and they confirmed these were cholesterol stones and they said green cholesterol stones you can also have, there are pictures of dissected livers where you see the exact same color green stones and sludge that come out through the liver and they come out during the liver flush and you can basically see that they are identical. There is other, lot of people actually pass stones naturally and I used to as well, I saw these green stones before I ever did liver flushes when I had gall stone attacks, so some of them did go through and they were the same green colored stones and I never did take any olive oil and things like that. So then to claim you can possible turn olive oil even if used the golden color olive oil into red green stones it is quite, something that I never saw in the scientific literature that could happen. Yeah it is completely illogical, we are not a self stone factory, that we somehow can manufacture stones that stink, any one who has done the liver flush has, finds when you smell some of these stones, they have a horrendous smell, putrid, poisons, it is like chemicals from, particularly when people do chemo therapy and then they do liver flushes, they smell like chemicals of the drugs in the stomach. Then there are people who have done a number of liver flushes like three four liver flushes many of them report already during the preparation period when they, which is used to soften the stones for six days, they are already passing the same stones and there is no olive oil taken during that time so it is definitely not from the olive oil. When a person eats a very fattening greasy meal, there is a lot of bile secretion and the person who does not have any stones he would not make any olive oil stones from having a lot of olive oil. I have lived in the Mediterranean for fifteen years, in Greece, cypress and on the island of cypress, and people there use olive oil like you would think there is a soup and most of it is like olive oil, it is literally full of olive oil so they eat a lot of that and they are not producing green gall stones, in fact it has been shown that person who have a lot of olive oil in their diet, they make less of these kinds of stones.
Paul Nison: So in terms of you mentioned olive oil, well can people use a different type of oil such as hemp oil or avocado oil or is avocado the only thing recommended and if so is there what particular type of olive oil versus another do you recommend.
Andreas Moritz: Yes, I tend to propose that people use olive oil and that is the first pressing olive oil, virgin olive oil. But yes avocado oil would be another alternative because it is a food oil and food oils are better than the concentrated seed oils, so sunflower oil can be used and has been used by people who cannot tolerate olive oil there are other oils that are colorless and so they produce the same result, by the way, so I test that as well, colour stones, so it is irrelevant. But the olive oil has shown to be more effective and that is why I prefer that.
Paul Nison: Is there one type of olive oil that you recommend over another like it should it be refrigerated olive oil or dated olive oil or it does not make a difference?
Andreas Moritz: No, like with every oil it should not be rancid and the older oil I the more likely it becomes rancid, particularly seed oils they become more rancid more quickly, however, and nut oils obviously, but olive oil is more, is less susceptible to oxidation that means to acidity and therefore one does not really need to be concerned about that most olive oils are suitable if you have had it in your kitchen for two years then yes use a fresh one buy it from the grocery store. Most of them are clear there are some that have other oils mixed into them but people who know olive oil, they detect the difference they know that this is a punched oil that has other oils in them that, there are some companies that want to make a lot of money form olive oil because it is more expensive and they put soy oil in it still smells of olive oil when you open it but it does not taste the same. I do not recommend those.
Paul Nison: Does it say on the bottle that there is different oil that is
Andreas Moritz: No. because they can say one hundred percent olive oil and then they do not have to say that is does not, that it is not one hundred [percent olive oil
Paul Nison: So how do people know?
Andreas Moritz: Usually people who know about olive oil they can taste it, there is a different, but the color it is looks like these commercial sunflower oils which are like this bright beautiful golden color. These are refined oils, processed oils. So stay away from olive oil that has a golden color tone to it, it should have this greenish sort of tone to it. Greenish golden. That is a more genuine type. There are some brands that are coming out of California and they are not so good, I would not want to give you the names of them.
Paul Nison: Ok sure I understand. So what about coffee enemas they good for helping cleaning the liver or not recommended?
Andreas Moritz: Yes for people who cannot clean their liver, coffee enemas is a good alternative, but, unfortunately, it does not get rid of any stones. It opens the bile ducts and allows the liver to release some toxins and it can be felt quite immediately, you would feel after a coffee enema you will have more energy for a couple of days until the presence of gall stones will then again re-contaminate the liver, because it is like you are closing the exit doors and or shutting them at least some extent and it cannot, the bile cannot sufficiently be secreted and eliminated it when there are a lot stones in the bile ducts of the liver. So it does not replace the whole flushes definitely. It does not even get close to it. I should not replace the colon cleanses because they coffee enema goes up to the rectum and it is not a colon cleanser it literally just opens bile ducts in the liver and helps the facilitate or prompt the release of more bile from the liver to get rid of some toxins that can come out of the liver.
Paul Nison: Since it opens up bile ducts would it be beneficial to do coffee enema while you are doing the liver flush?
Andreas Moritz: No because then that is a double whammy the liver flushes is already so effective it gets rid of stones and toxins that are in the bile ducts as well so it does not do anything more than you already doing with the liver flush.
Paul Nison: Now Epsom salts prepares a person for the liver flush and helps in cleanse them some what you recommend doing a colonics or an enema prior to doing the flush if someone does the Epsom salts and they do not have a bowel movement is there any need for concern or not necessarily?
Andreas Moritz: Yes, if a person does not respond to Epsom salts then there may be a blockage in the colon. Such as a stricture and or there maybe a the person may have a tendency to constipation, so then definitely cleaning out the whole colon would be very important prior to the actual liver flush itself. The Epsom salts which is basically magnesium sulphate or the use of magnesium citrate which works almost as well as Epsom salts will keep the bile ducts open during the entire process. So you start off two doses of Epsom salts before you do the liver flush in the evening and then during the next morning you take another dose of Epsom slats. So there is a double function to the Epsom salts, keeping the bile ducts open so that the stones can travel easily without getting caught anywhere and the second function is to work as a laxative to transport the stones and waste down into the exiting, to the colon and rectum for elimination
Paul Nison: If some body is doing a good amount of fasting and colonics before the liver flush nothing would be really there to come out during Epsom salts so that could just be one of the reasons why they were not reacting. Correct?
Andreas Moritz: Well if they are completely clean, then the Epsom salts will not produce much. No.
Paul Nison: Okay another question is, you mentioned that yourself you have done many of these, I do not know how your diet was before you started doing these cleanses but after you have you said the absorption of the food was much better did. You notice a difference in the amount of food you needed to eat? Did you need to eat much less?
Andreas Moritz: Right, I used to eat a lot because I did not get much from food so I tended to overeat. I have been a vegan vegetarian for forty years now. But I was only eating the things that I was eating and that created a lot of more problems, but I just craved that, I felt I needed it because I did not get much energy from foods so I started eating more and I craved the foods so I was overeating chronically. When I did my liver flushes the overeating stopped spontaneously and then so I was eating never to the, keep filling up my stomach,. My stomach actually began to shrink because it used to be extended because I just hacked in so much food. And so my stomach became smaller and so the need to eat the same amount of food as I needed before was no longer there, and so, I found that my digestion became so much more efficient so I made better use of the food I was eating therefore I did not need to eat as much and I eat very little in the evening it is basically just some vegetable soup with a piece of bread with butter on it and that is totally satisfying. My breakfast is also pretty small. Lunch is my biggest meal of the day where I eat fresh food that means raw like salad to begin with and some cooked vegetables, very deliciously prepared and some basmati rice or some other grain foods that I always eat enough fat with these foods and some spices and herbs they make it very delicious, maybe some coconut milk and things like that and I digest extremely well sometimes I have some nuts or seeds or maybe some pulses, legumes but not very often. I do not have any deficiencies of any kind, no protein deficiencies, muscles are strong, no energy deficits, I work form six o’clock in the Moring sometimes into unfortunately to ten o’clock at night, I sleep around never wake up at night, I used to have to go to the toilet three times, my kidneys recovered from and my prostate completely recovered from the problems I had when my liver did not work very well.
Paul Nison: You mentioned two questions there, you mentioned you have been a vegan for forty years but then you just said you had bread you eat bread with butter.
Andreas Moritz: That is the only exception. So I still consider myself vegan but the only exception is butter and I found it did not cause me any problems so, I made the exception. It was not that I had philosophical reasons to become a vegan or a vegetarian it just it saved my life. I could not live anymore I literally destroyed myself because of the protein that damaged my blood vessel walls, it cause a lot of heart problems and the rheumatoid arthritis, my blood circulation was so minimal that my toes were frozen even in the middle of the summer. My fingers were always cold, I could not get up from a chair or from the bed without feeling faint and having some blackness in my head and so feeling very weak inside to go and sit down again and get up very-very gradually. So my life was very much sort of walking on crutches all the time and it was not fun and so by changing the diet that was the first time when I noticed a massive improvement and so I stuck with it and survived. If you can do that and it saved my life and they gave me one year to live so it saved my life and extended my life by forty / forty-five years or fifty years then I am not unhappy.
Paul Nison: Actually I know my viewers are going to ask . how old are you?
Andreas Moritz: I am fifty seven.
Paul Nison: Great wow.
Andreas Moritz: Oh! Fifty eight
Paul Nison: Okay and you mentioned sleeping patterns did you notice a big change in how many hours you needed to sleep after the flushes?
Andreas Moritz: Yes, I used to not sleep very well. So it was sort of hard to go by the length of the night because in the night time I used to have a lot of pain so even if I did not have gall stone attacks I had shoulder and neck pain and headaches and pounding headaches that I did not sleep well and then my urinary bladder was just so contracted because of so many crystals from all the proteins I used to eat. Uric acid crystals that they started constricting my bladder and so my bladder was filling up so easily and so quickly so I had to run to the toilet two three times every night and so when I that disturbed my sleep tremendously. So I was never really rested. So when after my liver flushes I just took me two to three seconds to fall asleep and I would wake up in the morning completely rested after about seven eight hours.
Paul Nison: Wonderful now tell us about the connection, you said you have been a vegan for a long time. Do you take B-12 supplements or there a connection with the liver and being toxin and B-12.
Andreas Moritz: Yes B-12 is then there again there is a lot of controversy on the subject. Cause there is the idea that vegetarians or vegan people they have a deficit of B-12. B-12 is stored in the liver. The amount of B-12 we need during a lifetime is about the amount of the top of the pinky nail. And these are basically bacteria, dead bacteria that is where the B-12 is. And we, in our gut, we do have B-12 and we do absorb it. So when a person had digestive problems that is when they develop B-12 deficiencies. When the digestion improves the B-12 deficiencies disappear so once gain it takes us back to the liver and the liver regulates the digestive process if you do not make enough bile, then you do not digest any food properly. Most people believe, oh that is just there for fat, to digest fat, to make emulsified fats, but, it is not true. Bile is needed for every food, why? because we need fat to digest carbohydrates. Carbohydrates cannot be digested properly without fats. Proteins which always come with their own fat unless you remove the fat like the skimmed milk which is the real nuisance. If you remove the fat from the milk you wont be able to digest the protein you need to have fat in protein and fat in carbohydrates to digest them, if you eat rice without fat adding like butter or oil to it, it will go through the small intestine in record time, it literally will just go though it and will end up in your large intestine and ferment there, that means you will produce a lot of toxins because fermenting bacteria produce a lot of toxin. So it is important to realize that that bile is so important with regards to digesting any kind of food because you digest fat and the fart is needed to digest other food as well. B-12 could be absorbed there is a need for bile salts that also need to be absorbed and passed in the liver and with lack of bile secretion there are lack of bile salts. You develop a deficiency of all kinds of nutrient elements that otherwise would be there so I have never had a B-12 deficiency ever again ever since I became vegan vegetarian. It is interesting when people eat a lot of concentrated protein foods they are actually having a higher instance of B-12 deficiency simply because they produce a lot of putrefied foods and that clogs up the membrane and the end part of the small intestine where the absorption of B-12 takes place. So a lot of congestion there from undigested food is the major reason for B-12 deficiencies. It is not that a person is vegan vegetarian or meat eater. It is when the food is not digested properly that is the main reason for that. And that can happen to any one there are a lot of vegan vegetarians that are very ill, they do not look good, they are frail looking, weak, they are bloated all the time, have a lot of gas, there are just not on the good balanced vegetarian diet.
Paul Nison: What about probiotics and the liver flush is there any connection between probiotics supplements? Does it help the liver flush at all?
Andreas Moritz: Not that I found. It is a cleansing process when you cleanse the body you do not want at the same time to feed it. These are two different things. I always find that cleansing the body, the liver and colon and kidneys, there is a kidney cleanse in my book “THE AMAZING LIVER AND GALL BLADDER FLUSH” that is also vey important because the kidneys, when the liver is not working well, the kidneys get contaminated very easily. When you are cleansed the body, you utilization of the nutrients in the food are optimized so you have a much better chance to generate a balanced probiotics environment where you have the beneficial bacteria thrive and the destructive bacteria also be there but not dominate and so that the beneficial bacteria keep the destructive bacteria at the right number for them to do their precious work. There are no bad bacterias, it is just that there is an imbalance because either we are not digesting food well because there is not enough bile coming through or we are eating foods that are contaminating our bodies outright. And that requires more fermentation of putrefaction that you need on a regular basis it is well know that disturbs the bacteria population in the gut.
Paul Nison: So the body give off the liver really produces enzymes, so the enzymes supplementation help or hurt? Or is it good in general?
Andreas Moritz: I am always careful recommending enzymes supplements because it is like giving a person a crutch. It is better to train the body, re train the body to produce its own enzymes and it has nothing to do with age, most people think well the older we grow the less enzymes we make. That is really a very non scientific statement because you turn over cells all the time you turn over thirty billion cells, that means we produce thirty billion new cells and we get rid of thirty billion old cells hopefully. However if there is a blockage in the bile ducts of the liver and the metabolic waste products are not removed properly the cells not have the same capability of renewing themselves, replacing them selves in the correct intervals them you will have a lot of dead cells accumulating or damaged cells premature cells that are not fully developing so all kinds of issues arise when this happens. So I am not in favor, there are some circumstances where people were benefited, they do need the crutches like in real like sometimes you need crutches at least for some time but in the long term and as a general statement, I do not recommend taking enzymes to make the bodies own enzymes production sort of put it in on the back burner almost like suppressing the bodies own enzyme production. The thing is that when we put in a substances or nutrients into the system, the body will look at what it produces itself and say well if that comes in, say for melatonin, tremendous thing for jet lag and for some mental issues and for getting calmer, and so, there are a lot of people take melatonin supplements but when you do that the body stops producing or reduces its own production of melatonin, so you become dependent on the supplement melatonin. So it is not the same when introduce something from the outside than we produce it. The body produces the enzymes in the right amount the right amount of enzymes in response to the right mount of bile. If you have less bile the body also produces less enzymes to digest the food because it is not wasteful it does not want to produce like twice as much enzymes when it has only very little bile to play with. There is an interaction between pancreatic enzymes and the bile from the liver and what is that? That interaction takes place right where the bile is entering there small intestine because before the bile enters the small intestine it mixes with pancreatic juices and it has to do that because the bile activates the digestive enzymes that come from the pancreas so without enough bile if there is not enough bile around these digestive enzymes form there pancreas they may be there but they cannot do anything because they are not activated by the bile so we should always look at the sort of the larger picture and not think well I am not digesting my food well so I better take enzymes and yes they work, they absolutely work, people have less gases but the long term consequences of that are not known to the person.
Paul Nison: Well you have given me a lot of information about your actual flush and I want the viewers to know we are not going to tell people what the flush is, we are going to tell them to get to your website and get to your books to find out the exact instructions of the flush because it is more than enough information we have time for here today. So I wanted you in a second to give out your information how people can contact you, but, I do have one question about the flush. Some people do drink straight olive oil and some people mix it. Do you recommend one over the other or do you not recommend one of those?
Andreas Moritz: It is hard to drink it straight, some people really get very nauseated when they do that. The second thing is there is something in citrus juice like lemon juice or orange juice or grapefruit juice, when they combine with the olive oil you have an enhanced effect. These citrus juices, they also open the bile ducts they are known to do that. That’s is why lemon juice is pretty good for the liver and the gall bladder, it is also good for the kidneys, so it also minimizes reduces calcifications, so lemon juice is very good. It is very supportive of getting a successful liver flush going.
Paul Nison: All right. Give everybody how they can contact you because you not only deal with the liver you deal with all types of cleansing. Give everybody your information how they can contact your website, phone and also of your books, maybe the book they should get before all or just all your books. Tell them your information.
Andreas Moritz: Yes, my website address is “ENER-CHI.COM” that spells e-n-e-r dash or hyphen c-h-I. com and I have written thirteen books. I have done a lot of healing with diabetes you can find that on my website. Lot of free information lot of videos and there is a link to my Facebook page a lot of free information, constantly being presented on that and on my blog site. Basically from there you can access all the information that is needed if you want to delve into the subject more.
Paul Nison: Great. And in terms of weight issues, if people are having trouble putting on and take off weight once they cleanse their liver that will definitely help them achieve their goals right?
Andreas Moritz: Yes and because it changes the metabolism and when we digest food more we metabolize it better. You do not convert as much into fat when people get fat they have weight gain problem. It is not a problem it is a solution to an underline problem because the weight gain helps to neutralize toxins when people think oh these bad fat cells that I am accumulating, the bad fat cells are actually very good and helpful cells because they accumulate a lot of toxins and so they keep these toxins away from the blood stream, so they are doing you a favor. So when you want to lose weight it is important to first open the channels of elimination the liver, the kidneys and the colon otherwise you do not bring, you breaking down forcefully a lot of these toxic elements they flood the system and they clog up the exit organs, the eliminative organs and this can cause serious problems particularly to the heart. So a lot of people get heart attacks when they suddenly lose weight, I have a written a book called “FEEL GREAT – LOSE WEIGHT” which is the, a person makes itself feel great by cleansing all these organs you start feeling great you lose weight automatically, you do not have to regulate your weight the body does that for you. It is designed to do that. The weight gain is a survival response. It is not a disease, it is not physically it is not a disease it is a survival mechanism and should not be destroyed or targeted or manipulated. It should be naturally, it should happen naturally by taking care of ones diet and lifestyle, cleaning out the body, taking care of the basics so that the body can regulate its own weight and without any-any side effects.
Paul Nison: And that would be the same thing for people that struggle with high cholesterol exactly what you just said flushing the liver ?
Andreas Moritz: Yes definitely. The problem with having high cholesterol is not a problem at all. It is in fact never been shown to cause heart attacks. In fact it is now shown that the Statins, and it is a brand new study to show that Statins that lower the cholesterol there is an increased risk of heart attack form doing that also brain damage and now Alzheimer’s disease, the latest study that came out a couple of days ago it is actually causing diabetes. Statins cause diabetes. So when you take the cholesterol down through artificial means you create massive inflammation throughout the body and that is signified by these inflammatory illnesses like Alzheimer’s and diabetes. So you do not really want to go down that road. You want to go the organ that is manufacturing the most cholesterol, when there is inflammation you need cholesterol to patch up the wounds and to heal those wounds by taking care of your health in this manner you are reducing the chances of inflammation, eating less animal proteins, reduces inflammation throughout the body and through out the blood vessel system then you have a much better chance for lowering the cholesterol the body will take care of this. This is not something we have to forcefully do and otherwise get a lot of side effects form doing that.
Paul Nison: Great and here is the last question Andreas . Exercise is it helpful and can the body get rid of these stones and is it advisable to stop exercising during the flush?
Andreas Moritz: No, you can do exercise on the day of the liver flush, nobody wants to exercise, you do not have the energy to do that, so nobody will do that because it takes a lot of, it is ,like having surgery, you are clearing out the stones all the energy goes into draining out the stones but before the liver flush, no problem, I am not a great friend of over exercising to push the body. Fifty percent of the capacity that is how far one should go. Not more, if you can run ten miles before you collapse, run only five miles. So just half of what you could do and exercise should be enjoyment. It should really make you feel, good not make you feel tired or exhausted. If it makes you feel tired you are getting congested from doing that and if it defeats the purpose. There is some studies to show that walking three times a week reduces the risk of cancer by fifty percent from John Hopkins University.
Paul Nison: I just want to say you have been a wonderful guest thank you for joining us on this show. I recommend everyone get to your website. Before you go is there anything you would like to add?
Andreas Moritz: No you were a wonderful host and I loved your questions and you made it vey interesting, so thank you so much.
Paul Nison: Great thank you. I knew you would really enjoy Andreas and if were not ready to get his book before, I know you are ready to get now. So ‘rawlife.com’ get Andreas book and also get his cancer book as well. We are going to have him on the show again I just confirmed in November, he is going to be on the show again and we are going to interview him more specifically about cancer. But it was just a blessing to speak with him and meet him, both had a go, but, we could go on this program for a very long time and it was the first time I used this new software I got for skype so I believe quality came out really well and I am really excited about that and I am excited that you are a member and you are joining the raw life and you joined the raw life health show so thank you again for that put your comments below have a great week we have some great videos coming up this week. And if there is something you would like to see or somebody you would like me to interview, post it below the video and we will get to it. Alright, so everybody have a great day, a great weekend, a great raw life.
Lemons can heal the effects of consuming trans fats
Hi, this is a question from Jacqueline, and it is about trans fatty acids or trans fats. The question is, “In the past I have eaten so many of those trans fatty foods like as found in Mac and cheese, box pasta, commercial potato salad and so on, and I was wondering if beyond what you have written in “THE TIMELESS SECRETS OF HEALTH AND REJUVENATION” and in “THE AMAZING LIVER AND GALL BLADDER FLUSH” if there is anything else that can be done to remove the buildup of harmful trans fatty acids in the body.”
I can tell you a very simple recipe for that, use the juice of one or two fresh lemons a day and you can do that as long as you feel you want to do this, but it definitely helps to break own deposits of these fatty acids, particularly in the cell membranes and also in connective tissues around the body. So lemon has been known to for a long-long time for its very, very highly cleansing effects and breaking down fatty substances like these trans fats. That is why they are used in cleaning materials, many common cleaning materials have fresh lemon in them, and not synthetically produced lemon, actually fresh lemon, because it is more far more efficient in breaking down these chains of fatty acids… and allowing them to be broken down so that they can dissolve or be removed, and so cleaning materials are like that, they can be applied to the body as well as internally, so ingesting the juice, as concentrated as you can, will not just clean up fatty acids, but also break down calcifications as they can occur in the gallbladder in the kidneys, bladder and also in the chest, in the breast tissue.
So I wish you a beautiful day, have your lemons, they are your best friends with that regard, and enjoy.
Flushing out calcified gallstones
Hi, this is a question from Aradhna, she bought my liver flush book and had done one successful liver flush where numerous gallstones came out of her liver. These were green stones, these are typical cholesterol stones, but, there are two three, there are several two-three millimeter calcified, these are calcified, gallstones in the gallbladder that wont budge, and, she is taking some of the recommended products like Chanca Piedra that are mentioned in the book and she is still getting a lot of pain in the gallbladder though.
I mention in the book that calcified gallstones are typically the last stones to come out and that is because they are heavier they tend to sit in the pit, in the lower part, of the gallbladder and typically they are more reluctant to come out because gravity keeps them at the lowest point and the lighter stones, the cholesterol stones, that are lighter than water, in fact that is why they float in the water, in the toilet water, these are more ready to come out, so, this is a matter of patience. I passed my own calcified stones not before cleanse number six.
Some people pass them at the eight or ninth liver flush, my wife passed hers on the ninth flush and it was a very large stone, it was over two inches and it was fully calcified and after that she passed all her other calcified stones that she had in her gallbladder for many years which caused her a lot of pain, so, it is hard to tell when they are coming out. One older gentleman, he was 90 years old and he was diagnosed with large calcified gallstones that were more than one and a half centimeters large and he passed them… he had three of them, he passed them during the first liver flush, he went back to his doctor, his doctor said I cannot believe that they are gone, that was a 90 year old, so, it is not quite predictable but from my experience, it takes a while before calcified stones come out.
So I cannot tell you anything more about that, keep on using Chanca Piedra, have the juice of one or two lemons a day which also reduces the size of stones and so then they are more likely to come out during one of the future liver flushes. So I wish you well and keep going, because that is about the only thing I know of that can clear out calcified stones.

How to stop a gallstone attack
Hi this is a question from someone who has repeated gallstone attacks, and is wondering if there is anything that can be done to stop a gallstone attack.
I can speak from my own experience, I had forty gallstone attacks when I was young and when I did my first liver flush, these attacks stopped. But it is, in some cases, even if you do liver flushes, and there are still stones in the bile ducts of the liver and/or gallbladder you are still prone, susceptible, to have a future attack, so it is not necessarily a guarantee that you won’t have future attacks. But, once your liver is clean and your gallbladder is cleaned out, there is no way you can have another gallstone attack. I still recommend to do a liver flush every six to eight months just to make sure that no new stones that might have formed will impact the bile ducts again. So this is just a sort of a maintenance program .
Going back to if you do have a gallstone attack after eating a fatty meal which is typically the main reason for suffering a gallstone attack, even though lifting heavy objects can lead to contraction of the gall bladder and push the stone into the cystic duct or common bile duct, which happened to me frequently after lifting something heavy, I used to get a gallstone attack, but in the majority of cases it is after eating a fatty meal, high protein, heavy evening meal, overeating which can do it, certain foods like eggs, which is a leading trigger for gallstone attacks… fish is another one, meat of course, foods that are fried, deep friend foods, trans fatty acids in baked goods, milk can be a trigger, cow’s milk, so there are a number of factors one should be careful about to prevent them, but if you have had or if you have a gallstone attack there are a number of things you can do.
First thing on an empty stomach put a tablespoon of Epsom salts into a glass of water, eight ounces, and drink that down. Again on an empty stomach, not on a full stomach. This will relax the bile ducts so if a stone is stuck in the common bile duct it will start relaxing and this allows the stone to travel through and enter the small and large intestine for elimination. So this is the first thing you will need to do.
Then you can also at the same time, around the same time, massage the toes, the middle toes of both of your feet, and there is the gallbladder meridian that runs into the second smallest toe, this is particularly the one that you want to massage more vigorously, really dig into it even if it is painful, get into the place between the little joints, the toe joints, and massage that.
And another way to stimulate the gall bladder and the bile duct to pass any stuck stones is to put a poultice, let’s say a, a towel that you put into warm apple cider vinegar or castor oil and lay that over the liver area and keep it there for at least half an hour and it will relax this whole area to allow passage of the stone to occur.
Another trick is to drink during the following two or three meals one cupful to one glassful of red beet juice and that also tends to relax the bile ducts and increase the bile secretion so that oily bile that is secreted can help remove the stuck stone in the common bile duct or cystic duct.
So there are some of the best things you can do instead of running away straight to the hospital and having an emergency operation to remove the gallbladder, that is not something I recommend, do these other things before you do that, if you feel confident. So, it does not take long to drink a glass of Epsom salts, so the effect would be almost immediate. So you can do that in any case, and you still can go to the hospital if you like to, but, this is what I would strongly recommend you do and typically the person will find relief very quickly.

By Andreas Moritz
The liver secretes bile, which passes via the two hepatic ducts into the common hepatic duct. The common hepatic duct runs for 1.5 inches before being joined by the cystic duct coming from the gallbladder. Before bile continues its journey through the common bile duct into the intestinal tract, it must flow into the gallbladder.
The gallbladder is a pear-shaped pouch that protrudes from the bile duct. It is attached to the posterior side of the liver (see Figure 1).
A normal gallbladder generally holds about two fluid ounces of bile. The bile in the gallbladder, however, is not in the same form as it was when it left the liver. In the gallbladder there is such a great active reabsorption of salt and water that the volume of bile is reduced to only one tenth of its original quantity. Bile salts are not absorbed, which means, their concentration is increased by about ten times. However, mucus is added to the bile, which turns it into a thick mucus-like material. Its high concentration makes bile the powerful digestive fluid it is.
The muscular walls of the gallbladder contract and eject bile when acid food and protein products enter the duodenum from the stomach. A more marked activity is noted if food entering the duodenum contains a high proportion of fat. The bile salts in the bile are used to emulsify the fat and facilitate its digestion. Once the bile salts have done their job and left the emulsified fat for intestinal absorption, they travel on down the intestine. Most of the bile salts are reabsorbed in the final section of the small intestine and carried back to the liver. There it is collected again in the bile and secreted into the duodenum. (Note: Intestinal congestion sharply reduces the amount of bile salts needed for proper bile production and fat digestion.)
Gallstones may be primarily made of cholesterol or calcium or pigments such as bilirubin. Cholesterol is the most common constitution, but many of the stones are of mixed composition. Besides cholesterol, calcium and bile pigments, they may contain bile salts, water and mucus, as well as toxins, bacteria and, sometimes, dead parasites. Typically, stones within the gallbladder grow in size for about eight years before noticeable symptoms begin to occur. Larger stones are generally calcified and can be detected easily through radiological means, or by using ultrasonography. Eighty five percent of gallstones found in the gallbladder measure about 3/4 inch (2 centimeters) across (see Figure 2a), although some can become as large as 2-3 inches (6 centimeters) across (see Figures 2b and 2c of a calcified gallstone I personally examined and photographed moments after it was painlessly released by a client during her 9th liver cleanse; the stone emitted an extremely noxious odor). They are formed when, due to reasons explained in The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush, bile in the gallbladder becomes too saturated, and its unabsorbed constituents begin to harden.
If a gallstone does slip out of the gallbladder and becomes impacted in the cystic bile duct or common bile duct, there is very strong spasmodic contraction of the wall of the duct. The contraction helps to move the stone onwards. This causes severe pain known as biliary colic and is accompanied by considerable distension of the gallbladder. If the gallbladder is packed with gallstones, it also goes into extremely painful spasmodic muscle contractions.
Gallstones can cause irritation and inflammation of the lining of the gallbladder, as well as the cystic and common bile ducts. This condition is known as cholecystitis. There may also be superimposed microbial infection. Ulceration of the tissues between the gallbladder and the duodenum or colon, with fistula formation and fibrous adhesions, is not uncommon. Gallbladder disease generally originates in the liver. When liver lobules become structurally distorted due to presence of gallstones and, eventually, fibrous tissue, venous blood pressure starts to rise in the portal vein. This, in turn, increases the blood pressure in the cystic vein that drains venous blood from the gallbladder into the portal vein. The incomplete elimination of waste products through the cystic duct causes a backup of acidic waste in the gallbladder tissue. This gradually reduces the performance of the gallbladder. The formation of gallstones is just a matter of time.
