Did you try a liver flush but it did not release the gallstones? Chances are that you then used google and found this page. I encourage you to read all my blogs on this topic (linked below). Start with part 1 of this Rejuv Liver Flush protocol. Once done, choose option A or B below based on if you had time to do the recommended 6-Day Liver Cleanse in part 1.
2020 UPDATE: LOVE YOUR LIVER, BOOST YOUR METABOLISM & LOSE FAT
The original liver flush that I have used over many years comes from the research by Andrea Moritz, and I have tweaked this over the years based on client feedback. I can’t stress enough how important it is to do part 1 first to soften the gallstones to allow for a pain-free experience.
To do a liver flush, the ingredients you need include:
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 4 tbsp. of Epsom salts
- 1/2 cup of lemon or grapefruit juice
If you didn’t have time to do the 5-7 days of part 1, then please don’t use the Epsom salts as it could get a little painful if you haven’t softened the stones. I’m a strong believer in being kind to oneself so use the above ingredients with the lemon, olive oil & grapefruit but leave out the Epsom salts.

Prepare to release gallstones
The day of the cleanse, eat a light, low-fat breakfast and lunch. Eating high-fat foods triggers the release of bile from the liver into the gallbladder, which helps in the digestion of fat. So staying on your juice, WelleCo vegan protein shake and soup of the last week is a great day to prepare for the flush. Eating light allows bile to build up in the liver and gallbladder throughout the day, forcing the release of gallstones upon ingesting the olive oil in the evening.
Do not eat or drink anything after 2 pm, small sips of water are fine till 6 pm. If you chose option B, you can keep drinking water and 1 cup of fresh apple juice can be sipped if feeling a little light-headed if you’re not used to intermittent fasting.
The procedure to release gallstones
with or without Epsom salts
Option A: Liver Flush With Epsom Salts
Recipe: At 6 pm mix 1 tbsp. of Epsom salts in 1 glass of cup water & drink half. Wait two hours and take the second dose (pinch your nose and have a little honey in lemon water to discard the taste). Prepare for bed around 9:30 p.m. At 10 pm mix 1/2 cup of olive oil with 1/4 cup of lemon juice & 1/4 cup of grapefruit juice and drink quite quickly. After finishing the drink, go to bed and lay on your own right side, in a fetal position, to support the body’s release of gallstones.
Option B: Liver Flush Without Epsom Salts
Recipe: Prepare for bed around 9:30 p.m. At 10 pm mix 1/2 cup of olive oil with 1/4 cup of lemon juice & 1/4 cup of grapefruit juice and drink quite quickly. After finishing the drink, go to bed and lay on your own right side, in a fetal position, to support the body’s release of gallstones.
Release the Gallstones – What to Expect
Some people can go through the night and wake up with some tummy cramps, go to the loo and expel pea-sized greenish-brown stones the next morning. Others wake in the night with diarrhoea and go a few times throughout the night too.
Note, a clinical observation from over 20 years of treating patients, not a scientific fact, but I have noticed patients with blood type O & B tend to handle the flush much easier than blood types A & AB.
As I said a clinical observation, not scientific fact so use that information as you wish. The number of stones can range from just a few too many. If you really want to go hardcore many of my patients poop into a bucket so they can see their stones for once you expel into the loo it is hard to see what you actually expelled. The gallstones will also release cholesterol like crystals too, so a fun thing to look out for, if you are into science.
Moritz, Chang, Clark and other scientists assert that the olive oil and Epsom salt liver cleanse will help to increase energy, clear skin, boost metabolism and reduce food allergies.
