Almost 5 years ago to this day I was experiencing extreme pain in my upper right shoulder in between my shoulder blades. I remember watching Mad Men with my husband and he would spend the evening massaging just that section because it felt super tight. I was pregnant with my first daughter Riley and assumed it was just the weight of the baby and gaining an unfortunate amount of weight.
Well, shortly after having the baby early due to an issue with my gallbladder (cholestasis of pregnancy) I noticed the pain was always there maybe not as much and not as intense. I got adjustments, massages and pain still there but better. I noticed as well whenever I would bend over to do a deep push up or yoga the gallbladder would have a “charlie horse” or seize. It was painful.
Then I thought it was weight/diet related so decided to lose a bunch of weight. I did HCG and the pain was intense during that weird crazy diet. I started googling organs in the upper right back area and gallbladder showed up. So between the issues with the pregnancy and the pain I knew something was up. I started researching and found out about gallbladder disease, how to avoid gallbladder issues, how to clean it out.
I was shortly thereafter pregnant with my second baby. So couldn’t do the cleanses but knew that if I took daily doses of Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root I can avoid an early induction with my second baby. My OB was fascinated by all this and was so impressed that I avoided early induction with the second baby. I still had the cholestasis but it didn’t turn on until 39 weeks versus 34 weeks with my first.
About a year after I finished nursing my baby I did the Dr. Schulze Colon cleanse and did this for about 2 weeks but added Apple Cider Vinegar to the juices 5 times a day. This is longer than recommended (only 5 days after 1 week of doing Formula 1 ) but my body really needed it. So much crap came out. Won’t go into details. But it was scary effective in cleaning out a lifetime of crap in my colon. Husband then followed suit and same thing happened with him. I felt amazing and the cleanse gave me a new lease on life. I have since done the Dr Schulze cleanse 4 times and the gall bladder cleanse 3 times. Each time I’ve removed huge stones and cleaned out my body of weird things.
I then did the Dr. Hulda Clarke Gallstone/Liver flush. Which is more extreme than the Andreas Moritz cleanse, but I felt it was more effective for me personally. Also it concerns me that Andrea’s cleanse doesn’t have you doing a full colon cleanse prior. It’s super important to have a cleaned out colon before doing a gallstone/liver flush as otherwise you will feel super toxic after the cleanse
I did it to the T (I didn’t buy the other supplements they recommend just lemons, extra virgin olive oil and epson salt) and I had over 100 stones come out over the course of 24 hours. Some the size of a prune and one the size of a little golf ball. Biggest ones came out first, then the smaller and smaller ones and then the powdered dissolved particles. I know probably TMI. It did not hurt at all. The epson salt relaxes the gallbladder so it can easily release and the combo of the lemon juice and olive oil it releases the stones. I did feel a little nausea about 2 or 3am but that passed by 6am.
So to give you sequence:
Day 1-7 I did Dr. Schulze Colon Cleanse Formula 1 and Formula 2. Drank the Formula 2 five times a day in 32 ounces of water each time with some apple cider vinegar added for taste and to help break down the stones. I only ate vegetables soups, fruits and vegetables and no fats. It was tough for me to do this but I wanted to alleviate the pain in my gallbladder. I’ve done it where I ate regular meals while doing the cleanse and I didn’t get the same results. So I just made it easy on my body and ate only those things that are easily digestible.
Day 6 – last day on Formula 1 and Formula 2
Day 7 – Start the Dr. Hulda Clarke cleanse. I felt sick if I ate anything after 1pm so I didn’t eat anything other than some sips of water. Then did the cleanse as noted in the the link I’ve provided. That morning magic started happening. When allowed I started out eating a piece of fruit and then some broth and soup. Just kept it light all day and then drank another 32 ounces of water before going to sleep. You will see stones continue to be released each bowel movement for 24 hours.
I hear of people with gallbladder attacks and removal of their gallbladder. It all comes down to how you care for your body and cleansing the gallstones that will help you in the end. I strongly believe that the removal of the gallbladder will lead to other attendant problems. So I’ve learned how to take care of it and will continue to do routine gallbladder flushes until I no longer have any more pain in my gallbladder.
I hope this helps you ☺️
