Cleanses to for medication/xenobiotic causes of weight gain.
In this blog you will get the detailed instructions on two important cleanses described previously.
Bile tract cleanse protocol
Your liver drains out chemical wastes into the biliary tract. Bile is the fluid that carries it out and dumps into the small intestine to be carried out in your stool. The simplest half-day protocol for bile system cleansing is below. Ingredients include 2 cups of cold virgin olive oil; 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice; pineapple or V8 juice; a measuring cup or tablespoon-size measuring spoon; and a pitcher of water.
12 Noon: Stop eating all solid food. 6:30 pm: Stop drinking all fluids.
7:00 pm: Drink ¼ cup of olive oil followed immediately with 1-2 TBSP lemon juice. Relax supine for 15 minutes
7:15 pm: Repeat this exact dosage above (¼ cup olive oil and fresh lemon juice)
7:30 pm: and continue repeating dose every 15 minutes until you have swallowed the entire pint (2 Cups) of olive oil. If there is any lemon juice left, then drink it all.
Hours later: after completing olive oil + lemon juice, lie on your right side and go to sleep for the night. You can expect to have an urge for a bowel movement around 2am...or maybe not even until the morning comes.
Notes: to reduce terrible nausea or vomiting sensations, use peppermint oil in the olive oil, or chase the olive oil with a small amount of V8 or pineapple juice until you can resume taking the plain olive oil and lemon juice. Try stretching it to 30 minutes between doses if it gets hard to swallow the olive oil and lemon juice. All the green you see in your stool is bile that you have effectively evacuated, and some stones may or may not be there too depending on what was evacuated from your gall bladder.
Liquid cleansing – The Lemonade Cleanse
The lemonade cleanse consists of fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice, grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper mixed with water. No solid food is eaten during the entire 3 to 10-day liquid cleanse. It may also be safely extended to up to 30 days, depending upon your physical condition. Expect to experience the symptoms of sweating, increased urination, diarrhea or decreased bowel movement, mild weakness and even a change in breath odor. However, you can also expect various health problems fade or possibly disappear.
What You Need Before Starting:
Grade B maple syrup (do not use grade A or “pancake” maple syrup!)
Large bag of fresh lemons or limes (do not use from concentrate)
Cayenne spice you may already have in the kitchen
Six Water bottles so you can prepare several at once and store in refrigerator for up to 6 hours
Mix the following ingredients into each 16-ounce water bottle to your desired taste:
water: nearly fill up bottle
Juice from 1 fresh squeezed lemon or lime
Grade B maple syrup: just a quick pour at first and increase to desired taste
Cayenne pepper: begin with only a pinch and increase/decrease according to flavor. Higher cayenne amounts will stimulate more cleansing.
On the second and succeeding bottles, experiment with more or less citrus juice, more or less maple syrup and more or less cayenne. For lunch or dinner consider using hot water (like a soup broth) with increased cayenne to get a powerful spice taste. Drink 6 to 12 of these full bottles per day. Remember, this is your food and your drink for each day you are on the liquid cleanse. You will find that your hunger will decrease substantially after the third day.
In my next blog I want to address another hidden cause of abnormal weight gain: hormone imbalance.
Best of health,
