My Friend has 500 Jobs…

apples_228x291Well, dear friends, I’ve blogged about a lot of topics on this site over the last months, ranging from spiritual awakening, to the state of the economy, to how to deal with depression, etc.  But today there is really only one thing on my mind that I want to talk about with you more than any other, and that is: my liver.

For the last couple of years I’ve had some mild but reoccurring health problems: digestion, low energy etc.  So, as we are prone to do with low-lying conditions that don’t clear up, I’ve consulted with a number of practitioners.  Again and again, people have told me the same thing: do liver flushes.  It’s one of those things that I knew was a good idea, even though whenever it came down to it, I’d built up a wall of resistance.  I downloaded and read Andreas Moritz excellent book, The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush.  But still, actually getting around to doing the dreadful deed always seemed like something better off done next weekend than this one.

Well, this Saturday night the rubber finally met the road, and the results have been so dramatic in many ways that I just have to share them with you.  I prepared for the liver flush last week by drinking 32 ounces of apple juice a day.  For those of you who are as unfamiliar with what that looks like, as I was, it is about a liter.  Or, in layman’s terms, “really a lot.”  The purpose, I’d been told, was to soften the stones already built up.  Finally on Saturday it came to the big day.  I ate very lightly for breakfast and lunch, and then around 6 o’clock I began drinking a solution of Epsom salts.  Ever tried drinking Epsom salts?  Take it from me, forget all about castor oil or herbalax, or anything else you may have considered to move things out of the colon.  Epsom salts takes the first prize.  Within an hour of the first glass you’ll want to keep the corridor between the sofa and the toilet completely uncluttered.


I took the epsom salt solution again at 8 pm.  Truthfully, by this time it seemed a little unnecessary.  The first glass was working overtime.  Moritz’s book also told me that the point of the Epsom salts isn’t just to empty the colon, which it did in the first hour, but to relax and open all of the ducts which lead from the liver and gallbladder into the intestines.  And then, at 10 pm on Saturday night, with a roll on the drums, I did “it.”  Standing by the side of my bed, I drunk down the potion I had dutifully concocted: half a cup of pure virgin olive oil, three quarters of a cup of pure squeezed grapefruit juice, and I threw in an anti-parasite formula for good measure.  Having drunk all that, I did what Moritz’s book told me to do several times in big, bold letters: I switched off the light and laid down on my back, absolutely still.  Within a few minutes I could feel the most extraordinary sensation in my upper right abdomen, as though marbles were being squeezed down a narrow but flexible tube.  I could feel them moving one after another, occasionally a little uncomfortable but also exhilarating. It was while that bizarre sensation was repeating, time after time, that I dropped off to sleep.
I was woken up early the next morning by an urgent call from my body, screaming something about epsom saltsbathroomurgent.  Then came my moment of exhilaration…  triumphrelief.  It’s probably the closest that a male human-being comes to having a baby.  I had passed forty or fifty stones, each one about the size of a kidney bean.  I can’t describe to you the emotions that flooded through me as I looked at my litter.  I was sorely tempted to post photos of my newborn stones in this very blog, but my wife told me she would never speak to me again if I did.  Though a part of me wanted to name them, welcome them, there was also the dawning awareness  that these stones had been sitting in my body, maybe for decades, preventing my liver from doing what it is supposed to do.  I passed dozens more during the day.andreasbook2OK,  don’t tell me, I know this is a lot more information than you want or need, innocently checking out  my blog.  You were expecting to hear about oneness and awakening and everything, and you got more than you expected.  But the reason I am sharing all these details with you is because I feel completely different.  I took Sunday off to rest and meditate, and the depth of those meditations has been quite different.  My mind feels clear and sharp again, and that blanket of fatigue I have been carrying for several years has lifted. I can breath more deeply, my sense of taste, smell, and even vision has sharpened.

Moritz’s book informed me that the liver is responsible for over 500 functions in the healthy functioning body.  It cleans the blood, releases the enzymes that digest fat, it will even answer your e-mail and maintain your social calendar, but you have to keep it healthy.  I feel about ten years younger, and I recommend that you check it out toHere is a link to Moritz’s website where you can download his book.  If you have concerns about this process, as I did, you can also consult him over the web.

    Thanks Arjuna for a wonderful story! I mean it! I think it was both interesting and a nice contrast to all “awakening”! 🙂

    One question; I have problems with the gallbladder. According to the doctors who examined me with ultrasound, there are several stones in the bile, which is the reason for my pain.

    The process you describe, it also clears the stones from the gallbladder?

    Thanks for a wonderful blog!

    Dear Arjuna,
    thank you so much for posting this article. I totally agree with you – and I really want to recommend Andreas Moritz book and the Liver-Treatment to all interested persons.
    A friend told me about this book and I bought it 4 years ago. Since that time I did every year 3 times the Liver-Cleanse. The result is amazing and the cleansing is getting better each time. Andreas recommends to do the Cleanse regularly for a period – every month – if possible.
    The main emotion associated with the liver is anger – and I identify every little released stone with compressed anger 🙂
    Thanks for the reminder Arjuna – it is once again time for another Liver-Cleanse.
    Best wishes

    Does it hurt?


    • Kathryn November 14, 2009 at 7:48 am // Reply

      No it does not hurt. If you get a colonic that is not gravity fed, it could be uncomfortable, not painful. Your rectum could hurt from the toxins being released with the epsom salts. I have done five – the best advice I could give – get the book, follow the directions to a tea. Eat very lightly. Get a pre and post colonic. Go organic. You will be amazed at all of the benefits.

    Dear Arjuna,
    thank you for sharing your experience with the Liver-Cleanse.
    I would like to read in 4 weeks how you are then.
    Best wishes till the 3. December in Chieming

    You could have made a necklace of your stones, Arjuna, and happy are we that you are doing better. I’ll get the book and try it myself, as I love new jewelry.

    Thank you for your beautiful honest sharing.

    My LIver thanks you! I’m aware…that this would be of benefit to me…and I’m scared…but considering.

    YOU are brave..honest..and I am glad to have read your “personal” remarks…sharing..

    I’ll get the book by Andreas Moritz…but just listening to your story is MOTIVATING me to look and feel my liver…

    Arjuna, not only did I enjoy reading your posting (“my litter” haha!), but I just ordered the book. I’d usually, er, pass, on something like this, but your credible account inspired me. Many thanks!

    Well-timed! I’ll be getting the book, too. I went on Andreas’s site and enjoyed many more testimonials. Thanks for your candid sharing. Letting go is such a beautiful thing!

    Hi from the other Marion.

    I love your recap, Arjuna. Only you can make a liver flush sound like a fantastic adventure that we won’t want to miss.

    I’m taking you up on it. I’ve considered doing one for years; your tremendous success story is the clincher. I’ll get the book and get moving:-) Oh, and thanks for not posting a photo of your results!

    You can look forward to an even better trip, now that you’re so squeaky clean and full of energy! Happy, safe travel.

    Love, M

    dear Arjuna
    thank you for the post…i have been thinking about doing this cleanse for a long time and this may have been the inspiration that i was needing to actually ‘do it’. perhaps this will be my upcoming weekend.
    i understand chameli’s threat but am glad that you were willing and able to write about it. and to me this is part of awakening-no separation in our actions, and it sounds as if a new clarity has come with this as well.
    much love to both of you

    Thank you, Arjuna for your great inspiration ;-). Your enthusiasm for “life in its wholeness” is what I know from you and what I especially love at you. I have heard about this liver- and gallbladder flush before but never “did” it. I think I’ll try it soon.
    Love from Switzerland to you and your family.

    Dear Arjuna, Many blessings for your writing on the amazing liver/gallbladder flush. That was for sure the funniest account of a cleanse story that I have ever heard; and a most convincing 500 reasons to “get around to it”. I’m inspired. Woke up rather blue today , but now I’m in the pink again with those giggles. I like the idea of jewelry someone suggested. This is Oneness too, thank you ,thank you. Maggie

    Very interesting. I see a doctor of alternative medicine on a regular basis and discovered this a few years ago. Amazing, isn’t it?

    Thanks for taking your time to write this post. Hopefully, people will benefit from it. It isn’t a pleasant process, but it works.

    A friend just e-mailed me this story knowing I was going in for gallbladder removal next Friday. Nobody I’ve consulted has given me any hope of a better solution than removing a body part. I’m ready to check out this book & see if this cleanse really works. Thanks for the advice.

    A liver flush! Whatever will be next?
    Yet you did not enlighten us on the fundamental enigma: what the hell are these stones or where the hell do they come from?
    These are now the questions uppermost on my layman’s mind, next to “does everyone have them? i.o.w. is this awe-inspiring treatment advisory for any sort of human being?”

      You can read a lot of free information on this subject on Andreas’s web site, and this page:

      Of course, his book explains everything in great detail.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how a person might go about actually speaking to persons with gallstones who have done the liver and gallbladder flush(the full treatment of doing flush once per month over a 12 month period)?

    There are a lot of written testimonies online, in articles and books on the liver and gallbladder flush, but because MDs have come out against doing this procedure, it would be smart to actually speak to people verbally who have done the liver and gallbladder flush and hear their story directly from them. So that is what I would prefer to do before trying it. – actually speak to other people who have done this procedure.

    Does anyone have any serious suggestions, as to how talking to such people might actually be accomplished?

    I have done five of the cleanses in about 8 months. A very important point is to have a colonic before and after. If you do not follow that guideline, you may not have the success of doing the cleanse that is possible. I had a pre cleanse colonic the first time, but did not realize about the after cleanse colonic. I felt very sick for about a week until I had an emergency colonic. Please read the book and follow the directions. It really works much better. Also, follow the time guidelines. I had done four of the cleanses and when I went for the post colonic on the fifth one, the colon therapist was very impressed and asked what I had done differently. I said “I followed the directions!” Make sure to diligently drink the apple juice or mix apple juice with apple cider vinegar. Drink liquids either warm or room temp the week of the cleanse – no cold liquids. You won’t expel the stones as well. I cannot emphasize enough to follow the directions. The cost is about $130.00 for the pre and post colonics as well as the six quarts of apple juice, grapefruits, and olive oil. I use only organic. I am 48 and after the first cleanse, my girlfriend asked if I had a face lift! There are so many benefits, I need to write my own book.

      Kathryn i liked your sober response to Arjuna’s blog.

      Am very interested in doing the liver flush myself, but at present cant afford to pay for the pre and post colonic.

      Andreas Moritz recommends a DIY colema board irrigation as the next best thing – i was wondering if you have any views on this?

    Hi Arjuna~
    Thanks for sharing this event with us, it’s just what I’ve been needing to know. I’ve been aware of the liver/gallbladder flush for years but have never done it, & hadn’t known anyone personally who had. Our daughter has had some issues with gallstones for quite a while… I think this process might be just what she needs. I’m sure I would benefit from a cleanse as well. Thank you for sharing so honestly! I’ve already bought the book :).


  26. PU November 22, 2009 at 10:23 am // Reply

    Thanks for the very good description! So much so, that I tried the flush over the last days with the result today! Yippee.

    The epsom salts are just *awesome* is all I can say! When they start doing their job, take heed and stay close to the bathroom. I was however a little disappointed that I didn’t feel anything obviously happen after taking the olive oil and lemon potion before going to bed. But I think something did happen overnight because in the morning I had about 100 or so dark green “stones” appearing after going to the bathroom a few times. But being the curious person I am, that wasn’t enough for me. I decided to fish them out! Yes, honestly I did. And I took some photos, so if anybody is interested, have a look at:

    However, on closer inspection of the “stones” I realised they were actually quite soft. So it has left me wondering whether the stones really were ejected from my liver / gall bladder, or whether this is just what my body had done to the olive oil and lemon juice mixture. Hum. For me, the jury is still out. I’d be happy to hear other people’s experiences as well.

    Still, not a bad experience at all, I am feeling grrreeeaaattt this evening, like I have been reborn all over again!

    Hello Arjuna,

    thanks for sharing. I would like to share, too. First time I heard about the liver cleansing (from friends with no spriritual or alternative medicine background, but Russian friends) I thought, yes, this is exactly what I want to do. I did it four times by now. Yes, there are stones coming out. But the main effect with me, I lost weight due to the diet and feel totally drained (and I believe that is due to the diet, too). After the second flush I felt for about an hour, hey this must be the great energy you are supposed to feel. To be honest, yes I did expect it would solve some health issues. I will continue as you are supposed to finish and as I am curious if at some point there is really not coming out any longer anything.

    Overall, no particular great or bad experience.
    What has changed? I cannot stand olive oil any longer and improved at clysters. 🙂
    From now on I will be more cautious about the next “cure of everything”. About the same thing I said about the second but last “cure of everything” I have encountered. 😉

    Looking forward to see you at Chiemsee, several times more cleansed.
