sluggish and you have problem digesting fats this is a big warning sign that you've got gallbladder or liver issues going on so we'll talk about how to cleanse those on our episode today also I know I've got a lot of you watching right now who are joining me live from all over the country so want to say hey thanks so much for watching and joining me here today as well and hey do me a favor there are millions of people right now who need to know this information that food is medicine so take a second right now punch that share button let's help share this information and help transform lives all over the world all right guys I'm going to dive right in let's talk about how to heal and cleanse your gallbladder and here's the this actually really surprised me when I first got into practice there were a large number of people patients I had coming in especially women who were who are telling me that they were going to go and get gallbladder surgery or having their gallbladder removed and after following the steps that I had them follow is I'm going to share with you in this video many of them were able to work with their physician and not go and actually get a gallbladder surgery done so the good news is there's all natural ways that you can follow in helping heal and support the health of your gallbladder in cleansing stones from your gallbladder and helping it function its absolute best here's some things you need to remove from your diet number one is processed sugar sugar is highly inflammatory to your body now I know typically when we think of gallbladder we think of fat which I'll talk about in just a minute but specifically with the gallbladder consuming too much excess sugar and white flour products things along those lines that's going to cause inflammation of the liver and gallbladder so you were to remove processed sugar number two you want to remove excess fat from your diet now again just you a few examples of this the worst of the worst are hydrogenated oils so again if you're consuming hydrogenated oils canola oil cottonseed oil soybean oil corn oil any of those oils on a regular basis you want to get rid of those and especially being careful of eating out fast foods french fries or fried and oil you even need to be careful look at certain types of chips and crackers things with sunflower and safflower oil in fact will probably cause a lot of inflammation of the gallbladder if you're getting too much of it you need to be careful of over consuming fats if you have gallbladder issues for a time okay so typically you want to go a little bit lower fat for a time then you can add in healthier fats over time but you've got to be careful there especially if you're having a gallbladder attack or gallbladder inflammation on a regular basis so really be careful of the fat you're eating if you are going to consume fats the best fats are going to be coconut oil followed by a small amount of something like a flaxseed oil on a regular basis but those oils are going to be easier for your body to deal with typically than other oils the next thing here are processed foods I want to mention this fats this even includes things like processed peanut butter you know a lot of peanut butter has tried Rajee and oils at it as well so again you've got to flip over read the ingredients and make sure you're not consuming too much excess fats there especially the hydrogenated processed fats and processed foods of course french fries burgers anytime you're eating out it's typically a processed food and a lot of packaged food when you're eating eat real food lots of fruits lots of veggies a lot of organic lean meats that's ideal if you're going to cleanse your gallbladder so make sure you get all of these things out of your diet now I want to talk about doing a gallbladder cleanse if you really want to start doing a three-day gallbladder cleanse I have a one-night protocol I'm going to talk about in a minute but here here are the biggest things you want to be getting your diet you want to get bone broth vegetables get some green apples and then also I would mention here herbal teas which I'm going to talk about some herbs in just a minute but bone broth we know contains the amino acid glycine it supports liver detoxification now the other great thing about this is this can actually help you burn fat and lose weight when you're doing this liver gallbladder cleanse as well but again bone broth that ultimate superfood you can make your own you could also buy bone broth powder do that as a protein in smoothies as well as very beneficial so get bone broth everyday lots and lots of vegetables now what I'm saying vegetables that doesn't mean potatoes okay vegetables are green leafies and cruciferous vegetables carrots and beets those things but cooked or juiced vegetables throughout the day and raw veggies are great as well and then green apples green apples are sour in nature they're high in pectin they're very cleansing to the liver and the gallbladder as well great part of a gallbladder cleanser so for three days drink bone broth throughout the day do a lot of veggies like salads do some green apples as well that's those are the best foods you can be eating now I want to talk about some of the best herbs for cleansing the liver and gallbladder and here we have milk thistle now milk thistle is in the realm of bitter herbs it's very high in a compound called Simran and this compound has been shown to be one of the most powerful herbs on the planet at detoxifying the liver and the gallbladder so when you're doing the gallbladder cleanse consuming milk thistle typically 150 milligrams once – twice daily is going to be greatly beneficial and then boob florrum boo Purim is an herb in Chinese medicine that is greatly beneficial at cleansing the liver and gallbladder in fact it's found in almost every Chinese medicine formula when we're talking about liver health and gallbladder health you're going to find Buchla in there as well and another one of my favorites are citrus essential oils when we read in ancient medicine them talking about bitter orange or bitter orange peel or lemon oil lemon oil comes from the peel of the lemon not the flesh and lemon peel is very high in a compound called dilemma mean which is bitter in nature which also helps in cleansing the gallbladder as well as the kidneys as well as the liver lots of benefits there so with lemon oil you're going to do just two to three drops in your water three times a day very very cleansing for the liver and gallbladder as well and I would also say just a few other things to consider let me back up a few other herbs that can be beneficial as well if you're drinking you could do many of these as teas you can do a milk thistle tea a dandelion and tea is very beneficial there's another herb called gentian root which is which is really beneficial but these bitter herbs cause your liver to release bile and really support your your gallbladder to release bile helping you better digest fats and I really believe that that is a missing key you might go and search the internet you might go and read other articles or had someone else give you some advice on how to cleanse your gallbladder but one of the biggest missing things is bitter foods in our diet today it's all about sweet and salty we're missing sour we're missing bitter bitter is key when your body when you taste something bitter such as arugula spinach you know orange peel some of these in these herbs that we're talking about it causes your gallbladder to cleanse and release these toxins it is so therapeutic so again get more bitter foods bitter herbs in your diet drink these bitter teas as I'm talking about like milk thistle and dandelion and boot plum it's going to make a big difference in you healing your gall bladder for good now here is a liver cleanse step by step now what you're going to do and I want to say that this part is optional but if you want to do a very advanced form of this cleanse like a one night overhaul of your gall bladder this is something you can do but remember this number one is get rid of those foods from your diet number two start doing that three-day cleanse I talked about but if you want to do a one-night gallbladder cleanse your body will release some stones overnight and here's what you're going to do again this is optional but you're going to drink right before bed 1/2 1/4 a cup of olive oil 1/4 a cup of flax oil 1 cup of grapefruit juice and 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt now a lot of times people will divide these in two doses they'll do some right after dinner which is a light dinner typically bone broth and veggies around 6 o'clock and then if you go to bed about 10:30 you're going to do this twice you're going to sleep on your right side at night and when you wake up in the more you'll actually feel some gurgle Ling going on around that around your upper or your sore lower ribcage there on the right side and then in the morning your body will release stones so this is something for the next day throughout the day you're going to want to stay at home your body release some gall stones this is an advanced treatment actually I've seen it formulated by dr. holder Clark is one of the person people who have recommended this in the past so again this is optional doing a liver gallbladder cleanse but this is something that will cause your body to release a lot of toxins and stones all at one time the olive the flax the grapefruit four tablespoons of epsom salts doing these things in combination here can help and then mentality one of the things that can cause your body to store that bile and store those stones is if you are constantly frustrated let me ask you this are you're a person that struggles with being impatient maybe you're constantly in traffic jams or you're trying to rush your kids around or you've got work issues if you have frustration any type of anger impatience those emotions build up in the gallbladder so does unforgiveness so really working on those things doing things that allow your body to release tension walk getting outside in nature is a big tension or lever doing a yoga class going out for a jog outside really activity and motion actually planning ahead is a big thing that helps relieve frustration if you're sort of planning out your future and goal-setting all of those things can help in releasing frustration a certain sports such as tennis hitting a baseball racquetball actually anytime you're hitting you're releasing anything boxing you know even if you're doing it with the air doing a kickboxing class at your local gym that type of class those things help you release those emotions of frustration and anger and help you build peace in your life as well so let's remove let's review these big steps in cleansing your gallbladder number one remove processed sugars fat and get rid of all processed and refined foods I'm talking about processed breads white flour wheat flour conventional milk products fast foods processed sugar get all its soda let's get all that out of your diet replace it with raw local honey more fruits and veggies he's healthy fast from coconut oil and small amounts get rid of the processed foods number two here drink bone broth for three-day cleanse do just do bone broth vegetables green apples and some herbal teas number three take three times a day milk thistle boom lemon oil and other herbs like dandelion and tumeric can also be greatly beneficial and then last here number four you can actually do this cleanse of olive oil flax oil grapefruit juice and four tablespoons of epson salt drink all of these together before you go to bed sleep on your right side and last but not least release frustration and build peace through activity and meditation and prayer these things are all going to help you cleanse your gall bladder and heal your liver so guys I hope you've enjoyed this live training on how to naturally cleanse your gall bladder and five simple steps guys it has been me dr.
