Doing gallbladder flushes are an excellent way to flush gallstones and cleanse the liver, as laid out by Hulda Clark and Andreas Moritz. In fact, some say there is no better support for the liver and gallbladder than a gallbladder flush. There are a couple preparations necessary prior to doing a gallbladder flush, a kidney support and flush as well as addressing parasites. These, for the most part, are taken care of naturally by just following the GAPS Protocol. A gallbladder flush is recommended, on GAPS, after at least one year of protocol.

There are many ways to support the kidneys on GAPS. Fresh lemon is one. A focused flush is done with using the fresh juice from three to four lemons in a glass of water, repeated four times on day one. On day two, half this amount of lemon. From there forward, fresh lemon in the water.
Acupuncture is also a fantastic way to support and flush the kidneys. Many acupuncture practices are doing community acupuncture, where people sit in one larger room together, in lounge chairs and receive acupuncture next to other people. As a substitute to have each person in a single private room, the acupuncturist can see more people and offer a reduced fee. Usually, acupuncture in a private room ranges from $125 to $190, while acupuncture in a community acupuncture room runs from $25 to $40 a session.
Kidney support tea can include a mix of herbs including: Marjoram, Cat’s Claw, Comfrey Root, Fennel Seed, Goldenrod, Gravel Root, Hydrangea Root and Uva Ursi.
Parasites are addressed naturally during protocol. Extra support can be done in a manner of different methods from using Humaworm, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, Bentonite Clay, garlic, Oil of Oregano, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Black Walnut Hull, as well as many others.

On GAPS, the gallbladder flush should be used for adults, not children. 

Sometimes, on rare occasions, during or after the gallbladder flush, unexpected things can happen, primarily imbalance of electrolytes, too much diarrhea or pain during or after the flush. These methods of support can be used individually or collectively.

If too much diarrhea, excessive diarrhea occurs, the amount of epsom salts can be adjusted. Some cases have seen, during the normal flush, diarrhea to the point of explosive diarrhea over 10 times an hour. Some have seen so much that they never leave the commode. If this is the case, those in this scenario see relief by lessening the amount of epsom salts in water. (Epsom Salts must be deemed USP, for human consumption).
Using less epsom salts presents the concern that a gallstone will get stuck. The goal is to have the bowels moving.
If a stone does get stuck, it could present as intense pain that exists with feeling unwell, profuse sweating and nausea or vomiting. If this occurs, returning to the normally recommended dose of one tablespoon of epsom salts in 6 ounces of water is helpful to open up the exit pathway. In most cases, this resolves the situation. 
Doing a coffee enema is often beneficial to flushing gallstones. If you are doing the normal pattern of a cleaning enema and coffee enema prior to the flush, and an additional coffee enema at 9 am the following morning, the odds of this happening is extremely low. However, additional coffee enemas can be used to assist in moving stones. 
Other methods that assist in moving stuck stones are colonics, castor oil rubs followed by castor oil packs, meat stock, more kidney support tea, vitamin C support, liver stretches such as this one, liver and gallbladder stretches such as this one,  reflexology such as this, two teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar, with the mother, in one cup of water, B3 or beet kvass. Multiple choices or even all of the above choices are used by some. 
Eating peas, lima beans, navy beans or lentils properly prepared often assist well due to their high soluble fiber. To assist the gallbladder, it is best to eat smaller portions more frequently, hourly, than one big portion.

 It is recommended to continue doing gallbladder flushes until no gallstones are seen for two months. *Nourishing Plot is written by Becky Plotner, ND, tdnl nat, CGP, D.PSc. who sees clients in Rossville, Georgia.

  1. Mel says:

    Is humaworm then safe on GAPS? It contains Psyllium… Doesn’t that ingredient supposedly feed pathogens?

    • Becky Plotner says:

      Yes, it is gaps approved and yes psyllium is not gaps approved. DNCM says the benefits far outweigh the negatives and approves it.

What do you think?
