Life in the jungle

Life in the jungle is a little different from life in the city. In fact, they are polar opposites. In the city nature has been conquered. Concrete has been laid all over the face of our mother. We have cut down a lot of the trees, and all of the animals and plants have been made extinct or shunned. In the city humans no longer life in harmony with the heartbeat of mother nature. Instead we live in synch with the machine. The clocks, the traffic lights, the road signs, the CCTV cameras, the surveillance, the control of every minute aspect of human life. Every purchase is recorded, every move is spied upon. In the city life one cannot breathe. The cars, the buses, the trucks, the construction, the drone of the machine, the sirens, the factories, the overwhelming toxicity. It suffocates life. It stunts growth. In the city we live in this electromagnetic 'soup'. We are bombarded with all kinds of EMF's (electromagnetic frequencies), mobile phones and WIFI signals. Just look at your iphone and see how many WIFI signals your are picking up. How can one get mental clarity and peace of mind when your brain is being constantly exposed to all these frequencies? The truth is; we can't. Any many people are suffering being caught up in the rat race. Stuck in the hamster wheel, going round and round. Paying bills, paying tax, paying rent, paying insurance, paying to exist! Then they have the cheek to ask you if you would like health insurance? How can one figure out the meaning of life, who they are, what they are doing here on earth and what their passion is when 95% of their vital force energy is taking up by working a boring mundane job just to pay rent and bills and council tax? Some people don't even have enough money to buy decent quality food at the end of the day.

Anyway....I could rant on and on about the sad society human beings are creating from themselves. Although, that is only one side of the story.

Life in the jungle though, life in nature, is very different. Yes it has it's challenges too, like finding a huge tarantula in the kitchen sink or getting woken up at 4.30am by a bunch of really loud howler monkeys. Costa Rica, where life can actually live. Nature here is ALIVE. And I really mean ALIVE. Everywhere you look plants are blooming and the birds are singing. It feels right. It feels like how life is supposed to live. It is easy to forget about the machine world here. The trees and plants talk to you, and the birds sing to you. Nature is abundant and forever giving, providing us with constant unconditional love and nourishment.

Every day I go and pick fresh herbs from the garden to eat in the salad. I have never before felt so nourished. Even when I was living in the city and I would go to the organic store and buy organic produce it still lacked the chi and life force my body was craving. Most of the fruits and vegetables there had been picked weeks ago and had been sitting in the refrigerator for days being exposed to the dissonant drone hum sound of the fridge. In Costa Rica, things are a little different. Pretty much all of my food is sourced locally and has been picked ripe. When you think about it. For fruit to travel half way around the world, it has to be picked way under ripe so it can ripen along the way and not rot before it reaches its destination. The is not the TAO. This is not natures intention. One could argue the potential benefits of globaliztion and the mass exportation and importation of exotic fruits and vegetables to other parts of the world. I am grateful that I was able to buy fruits like bananas, mangoes and pineapples in Scotland however, nothing can compare to tree ripened fruit. Even better when you can pick this fruit yourself from the tree. That is life. This is spirituality. A human being in communication with mother nature......

Talking about tree ripened fruit.....there is a huge jackfruit tree that is going to provide so much fruit really soon. One of nearly ready, and we are all excited about eating it. Have you ever tried jackfruit? It tastes like bubblegum! It is where the 'juicy fruit' flavor was derived from. Oh pachamama. I am eternally grateful for all your precious gifts. You nourish me, you take care of me and you love me. The feeling is mutual by the way.

The Health Benefits of Melons

Melons are optimum food for the human body. Watermelon is around 97% water. Not just any old water. Purified and distilled structured water from the earth...with added vitamins. The real original vitamin water. When you eat a melon it actually passes right through the stomach and into the duodenum which connects the stomach to the small intestine. Melons are very easy to digest and infact require very little energy to digest. They also help to alkalize the body. As I have said before watermelons have a special affinity for the kidneys. Your kidneys love watermelon too. It helps to keep them flushed. A simple kidney cleanse will be eating nothing but watermelon for 2-3 days. You can also eat the watermelon seeds and brew
them into a tea. It is always best to eat melons on an empty stomach. "Eat them alone or leave them alone". As melons like to pass quickly through the stomach any food that hasn't digested yet in the stomach will create an obstruction which will cause the melon to ferment. The by products of undigested food can create a source of toxicity in the body. Melons are fun to eat and taste great.

Liver/gallbladder flush protocol

The liver/gallbladder flush is one of the most powerful ways to your cleanse you body, improve energy levels and regain your health and vitality. Gallstones severely disrupt the performance of the liver, which has over 500 functions. Getting rid of these stones is one of the most important steps you can take to rejuvenate your body, reverse or slow down the aging process and heal your body on a profound level, not only physically but emotionally and mentally too.  By doing a liver flush we can safely remove hundreds of stones at a time. It may take upto 8 - 12 flushes, or even more in special cases until your liver is completely free from gallstones. Once you have done two consecutive flushes with no stones coming out you can be sure your liver is clear of gallstones and will be working at optimum capacity! After that, it is recommended that you do a liver flush every 6 months or so for general maintenance. Once you start liver flushing it is advised that you keep you flushing at regular intervals. Every 3 - 4 weeks is ideal.

The liver/gallbladder flush requires 6 days of preparation, and one day of rest.

Here's what you will need....

  • Apple juice - Six 1 liter (32oz) containers 
  • Epsom salts - 4 tablespoons
  • Olive oil (cold pressed, organic) - 200ml
  • Fresh grapefuits,lemons or oranges - 200ml
  • An enema bag (optional but highly recommended 
For 6 days drink 1 liter of apple juice. You may drink more than that if you want to. The malic acid in the apple juice softens the gallstones and makes their passage through the bile ducts easy. The apple juice has a strong cleansing effect. Drink the apple juice throughout the day and not all at once. You may eat as many apples as you like during the cleanse too. Note: If you can't tolerate apple juice because of the high sugar content apple cider vinegar works well too. Braggs is good. 4oz of apple cider vinegar per day has the equivelant malic acid content to1 liter of apple juice per day. So, altogether you would drink 24oz (680ml) of apple cider vinegar throughout the 6 days preperation.

Dietary recommendations....
Eat a vegan diet void of any animal products (meat, eggs, milk, fish, cheese etc) and avoid any fried foods. You may eat normal meals but keep it as light as possible and try not to overeat. The better you prepare the more effective the flush will be and you will produce better results. It is best to avoid fat during the preparation for this cleanse as this will build up more pressure in the liver. Avoid any medications or supplements during this cleanse unless they are absolutely necessary. 

Colon Cleansing....
Make sure that you cleanse your colon before and after you do a liver cleanse. Having regular bowel movements is not necessarily an indication that your bowel is unobstructed. Colon cleansing, either done a few days before or, ideally, on the sixth day of preparation, helps to avoid or minimize any discomfort or nausea that may arise during the actual liver flush. It prevents back-flushing of the oil mixture or waste products from the intestinal tract. It also assists the body in swiftly eliminating the gallstones. Colonic irrigation (colon hydrotherapy) is the fastest and easiest method to prepare the colon for the liver cleanse. I advise to do an enema every morning for 6 days prior to the actual flush. This will ensure that you colon is in tip top shape before partaking in the flush. If your colon isn't clean and you have too much impacted fecal matter in there, gallstones may get trapped on their way out and lead to more discomfort. 

On the day of the flush (day 6) what you eat is VERY IMPORTANT. Eat a light breakfast. A juice or smoothie is ideal then for lunch you may have more fruit, a salad or some basmati rice with steamed vegetables. It is super important to to eat ANY FAT. No butter, no eggs, no avocados, no nuts, no seeds, no oils. 


The Actual Cleanse Evening 
6:00PM: Add four tablespoons of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) to three 8oz. glasses of filtered water in a jar. This makes four servings, ¾ glass each. Drink your first portion now. You may take a few sips of water afterwards to get rid of the bitter taste in the mouth or add a little lemon juice to improve the taste. Some people drink it with a large plastic straw to bypass the taste buds on the tongue. It is also helpful to brush your teeth afterwards or rinse out the mouth with baking soda. One of the main actions of Epsom salt is to dilate (widen) the bile ducts, making it easy for the stones to pass. Moreover, it clears out waste that may obstruct the release of the stones. 

8:00PM: Drink your second serving (¾ glass) of Epsom salts. 9:30PM: If you have not had a bowel movement until now and not done a colon cleanse within 24 hours, take a water enema; this will trigger a series of bowel movements.12 

9:45PM: Thoroughly wash the grapefruits (or lemons and oranges). Squeeze them by hand and remove pulp. You will need ¾ glass of juice. Pour the juice and ½ glass of olive oil into the pint jar. Close the jar tightly and shake hard, about 20 times or until the solution is watery. Ideally, you should drink this mixture at 10:00PM, but if you feel you still need to visit the bathroom a few more times, you may delay this step for up to 10 minutes. 

10:00PM: Stand next to your bed (do not sit down) and drink the concoction, if possible, straight. Some people prefer to drink it through a large plastic straw. If necessary, take a little honey between sips, which helps chase down the mixture. Most people, though, have no problem drinking it straight. Do not take more than 5 minutes for this (only elderly or weak people may take longer). LIE DOWN STRAIGHT AWAY! This is essential for helping to release the gallstones! Turn off the lights and lie flat on your back with 1-2 pillows propping you up. Your head should be higher than the abdomen. If this is uncomfortable lie on your right side with your knees pulled towards your head. Lie perfectly still for at least 20 minutes and try not to speak! Put your attention on your liver. You may even feel the stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There won’t be any pain because the magnesium in the Epsom salts keeps the bile duct valves wide open and relaxed, and the bile that is excreted along with the stones keeps the bile ducts well lubricated (this is very different in the case of a gallbladder attack where magnesium and bile are not present). Go to sleep if you can. If at any time during the night you feel the urge to have a bowel movement, do so. Check if there are already small gallstones (pea green or tan colored ones) floating in the toilet. You may feel nauseous during the night and/or in the early morning hours. This is mostly due to a strong, sudden outpouring of gallstones and toxins from the liver and gallbladder, pushing the oil mixture back into the stomach. The nausea will pass as the morning progresses. 

The Following Morning 
6:00-6:30AM: Upon awakening, but not before 6am, drink your third ¾ glass of Epsom salts (if you feel very thirsty drink a glass of warm water before taking the salts). Rest, read or meditate. If you are very sleepy, you may go back to bed, although it is best if the body stays in the upright position. Most people feel absolutely fine and prefer to do some light exercises, such as Yoga.

 8:00-8:30AM: Drink your fourth and last ¾ glass of Epsom salts.

10:30AM: You may drink freshly pressed fruit juice at this time. One half-hour later you may eat one or two pieces of fresh fruit. One hour later you may eat regular (but light) food. By the evening or the next morning you should be back to normal, and feel the first signs of improvement. Continue to eat light meals during the following days. Remember, your liver and gallbladder underwent major surgery, albeit without harmful side effects. The Results You Can Expect During the morning and, perhaps, afternoon hours after the cleanse you will have a number of watery bowel movements. These initially consist of gallstones mixed with food residue, and then just stones mixed with water. Most of the gallstones are pea-green and float in the toilet because they contain bile compounds . The stones come in different shades of green and may be brightcolored and shiny like gemstones. Only bile from the liver can cause the green color. Gallstones can come in all sizes, colors and shapes. The light colored stones are the newest. Blackish stones are the oldest. Some are pea-sized or smaller, and others are as big as two or three centimeters in diameter (about 1 inch). There may be dozens and, sometimes, even hundreds of stones (of different sizes and colors) coming out at once Also watch out for tan-colored and white stones. Some of the larger tan-colored or white stones may sink to the bottom with the stool. They are calcified gallstones that were released from the gallbladder and contain heavier toxic substances with only small amounts of cholesterol  All the green and yellowish stones are as soft as putty, thanks to the action of the apple juice. You may also find a layer of white or tan-colored chaff or ‘foam’ floating in the toilet. The foam consists of millions of tiny white, sharp-edged cholesterol crystals, which can easily rupture small bile ducts. They are equally important to release. Try to make a rough estimate of how many stones you have eliminated. To permanently cure bursitis, back pain, allergies or other health problems, and to prevent diseases from arising, you need to remove all the stones. This may require at least six cleanses which can be performed at two to three-week or monthly intervals (do not cleanse more frequently than that). If you cannot cleanse this often, you may take more time between cleanses. The important thing to remember is that once you have started cleansing the liver, keep cleansing it until no more stones come out. Leaving it half clean for a long period of time (three or more months) can cause greater discomfort than not cleansing it at all.

The liver, as a whole, will begin to function more efficiently soon after the first cleanse and you may notice sudden improvements, sometimes within a few hours. Pains will lessen, energy will increase and clarity of mind will improve considerably. However, within a few days, stones from the rear of the liver will have traveled ‘forward’ towards the two main bile ducts exiting the liver, which may cause some of the previous symptoms of discomfort to return. In fact, you might feel disappointed because the recovery seems so short-lived. But all of this shows that there are still stones left behind, ready to be removed with the next round of cleansing. Nevertheless, the liver’s self-repair and cleansing responses will have increased significantly, adding a great deal of effectiveness to this very important organ of the body. As long as there are still a few small stones moving from some of the thousands of small bile ducts towards the hundreds of larger bile ducts, they may combine to form larger stones and produce previously experienced symptoms, such as backache, headache, ear ache,  digestive trouble, bloating, irritability, anger, etc., although these may be less severe than they were before. If a new cleanse no longer produces any stones, which usually happens after 6-8 cleanses (in severe cases it may take more than 10-12), your liver can considered to be in excellent condition. Still, it is recommended to repeat the liver cleanse every six months. Each cleanse will give a further boost to the liver and take care of any toxins that may have accumulated in the meanwhile. Note: Never cleanse when you are a suffering an acute illness, even if it is just a simple cold. If you suffer from a chronic illness, however, cleansing your liver may be the best thing you can do for yourself. 

Here are some extra videos to get you started. HAPPY FLUSHING FOLKS!

Ohhhhh Nooooni. The smelliest superfood on the planet.

NONI NONI NONI! Ahhhh. I have a strange relationship
with this little fruit. Noni came into my life earlier this year when I was living in Costa Rica. I had heard a lot about it and read a couple of things online about it but I never really knew what all the hype was about. I was bemused by its shape.The fruit itself looks like a dinosaur egg or some kinda of extraterrestrial embryo. As soon as I picked it up its strong pungent odor hit my nose. It smells like rotten blue cheese. It is a powerful smell, almost like parmesan, but stronger. I have always disliked the smell of cheese, in particular moldy blue cheese so the thought of eating it was a challenge!

So....I decided to blend some up in the blender with a little coconut water. Some people like to ferment it in jars for upto a few months and I actually started to ferment some of my own however my first taste of noni was a really soft and ripe fresh one. WOOOOOOOOOO! The taste was so powerful! I immediately felt a buzz and a huge surge of energy went through my body. I felt lighter...and really bouncy. It turns out that noni fruit is one of the world's most powerful superfoods and is jam packed full of good things. Research has been done to show that it is full of vitamins C, E, B1, B2, B6, B12 and very rich in organic minerals like zinc, mangnesium and iron. Native to Polynesia and having a history of over 2,000 years noni provides a whole array of amazing health benefits ranging from anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It is known to have great skin care benefits. It's high selenium content helps to preserve skin's elasticity slowing the aging process. Noni is also said to be a powerful adaptogen helping to balance our immune system whether it be deficient or excessive.

I felt fortunate to be living and working right next to numerous noni trees. My fermentation project went really well and I can tell you that fermented noni juice is a lot more palatable than fresh noni! You can also utilize the leaves of the noni tree to make noni leaf tea. You pick the leaves, leave them out in the sun to dry then crunch them up.

Here's a little youtube video with more noni knowledge.....

I love superfoods. We are so blessed on this planet with the incredible amount of foods we have to enjoy and experience. For every ailment there is a plant to cure it. I sure could feel the power of noni after drinking it. You are literally buzzin all day and it gives you so much energy, even if you just have a little shot. It's not that palatable at first, but once you get used to the pungent cheesy smell it's fine! If someone who hates cheese can drink it then i'm sure you could! Actually, I know people who make a raw blue cheese with the noni. It never tried it but i'm sure its delicious and nutritious. There are many noni products out there on the market. I was fortunate enough to consume fresh local noni. If you are interested in trying this fruit then i'd suggest looking for a good brand and make sure there is any nasty additives or sugar added in there.

See you soon. 
Much love, Ry x

Mangoes are falling from the trees!!!!

P1120138 1024x768 Coconut water, health and a new business industry Coconut water

I have now been in Costa Rica for about 5 weeks and I am feeling fresher than ever. Probably because I've been drinking a lots and lots of coconut water...fresh coconut water. There is something special about this fruit. The water from the coconut truly is a gift from nature. Nothing will hydrate you more than a fresh coconut water, or agua pipa (as the locals call it). They taste so sweet, but sometimes a little fizzy and fermented which is nice too. It takes almost one year for the coconut tree to soak up the liquid from the ground and it gets super filtered and distilled as it goes up the trunk, through the branches and into the coconut. Coconut water is one the best sources of water you can find! The locals here sell huge 6 litre bottles of it for $8....which is pretty cheap considering you'd pay around $5 for a small 500ml bottle in North America or Europe that has been packaged and transported a long way and lost most of its life force. I am very grateful to be in a place where there is an abundance is this amazing fruit. Coconut water is alkaline and has a huge array of minerals and electrolytes which to help hydrate and nourish your cells. 

Now, talking about abundance....right now in costa rica its mango season. There's mangoes on the ground everywhere and they are falling from the trees.....i've almost been hit on the head a couple of times with one! The mango trees are really big, and they produce a lot of fruit!  It is a work of art. They can live for upto 300 years and reach upto 120ft! I've you had no money and wanted to live off mangoes for a few months then come to costa rica!! The mangoes here are probably the best mangoes I have ever tasted, actually......those Indian/Pakistani honey mangoes are hard to beat :) Super sweet, aromatic....mmmmm so good.  I have been eating a lot of mono meals...mono mango meals. I can demolish 3 - 4 mangoes at a time! Mangoes are super nutritious too. Really high in antioxidants like vitamin C, high in vitamin A beta carotene and they also contain a considerable amount of malic acid (which is great for me as I'm in preperation to do another liver flush and the malic acid is required to help soften the gallstones up before release).
"Lupeol, a triterpene present in mango and other fruits and vegetables, has shown to possess anticancer properties. A study has demonstrated the effectiveness of lupeol and mango pulp extraction in stopping prostrate cancer cell growth. Another study has shown lupeol to be effective in killing pancreatic cancer cells, a particularly aggressive form of cancer. Lupeol was not only found to suppress tumor growth, but also to impair head and neck (includes the nose, oral cavity, salivary gland, etc.) cancer cell invasion. Preliminary studies have found lupeol from mangoes and other fruit to be effective in reducing the risk of kidney stone formation." Good to know, huh? 
The vibrant yellow/orange color is good color therapy too. When you begin to consume more raw fruits and vegetables you begin to glow with color and radiance...just like the fruits. You are what you eat! That means i'm a mango right now!! Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables also helps nourish and feed your skin so it can handle the intense heat. Just to let you know....i never use sun screen. I don't need it. I make sure I provide my body with the right nutrtition. My genetics are Scottish/Irish. I am as about as white as they come, yet...after some weeks in the sun I have developed a lovely tan. I am not burnt like a lobster like many tourists who come here. I beleive its due to diet. Your skin is the last place in the body to receive nutrition but the first place to reveal deficiency. If you are drinking coca cola, eating cheeseburgers, sugar, junk foods and dead denatured foods and you go out into the sun you are much more likely to get sunburn and skin problems. However with the right diet and nutrition solar bathing can be really healing for the body. Just be wise and don't stay out more than your body can handle at one time. 

I've you are a vegan, a raw vegan, a frutarian or even if you just like to enjoy amazing local tree ripened fruits then Costa Rica is a hotspot. You see many street vendors selling their products. Be sure to barter with them and you might save yourself a penny or too. It feels good to be in a place where I can eat fresh fruit that hasn't travelled too far to get to where I am, instead of being transported thousands of miles to its destination. Peace folks!!!

The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush

Today I am going write about why I believe liver flushing is one of the most powerful and effective ways to heal and rejuvenate your body.

Unfortunately most of us grew up eating a very unbalanced diet. Most of our lives we've eaten a diet lacking in fresh organic fruits and vegetables, herbs, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes. Instead, we've consumed a diet full of excessive animal products, refined grains, processed sugars, chemical additives and GMOs. This unbalanced lifestyle has led to the formation of gallstones in our livers. Many people believe gallstones are only found in the gallbladder, which is not true. They are formed mostly in the liver and often get trapped in the bile ducts as well. 20% of people will develop gallstones in their gallbladder and sadly, have this critical organ surgically removed. I find this completely unnecessary. If your toilet is clogged, do you solve the problem be tearing out the toilet? No, you unclog your toilet. That is what the liver flush does, unclogs your liver and gallbladder. Having your liver completely free of stones is the key to radiant health and longevity. Many people have hundreds, if not thousands of gallstones clogging up this vital organ of detoxification. Gallstones in the liver have been found to be the root cause of many ailments and diseases including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, acne and other skin disorders, muscle and bone weakness and hair loss. Consequently, cleansing your liver from stones will reverse your symptoms one by one and bring your health back into a state of equilibrium and balance. 
Here is a picture of the results of my first ever liver flush:
I recently just completed my 5th liver flush with great results. It is an amazing feeling seeing what comes out of you. You really do feel lighter and fresher every time.

 Gallstones I released from flush #4

  How do you know if you have stones in your liver? Have you ever over indulged in unhealthy food? Have you eaten a lot of deep fried foods, animal products, junk foods and processed refined sugars? Have you ever drank a lot of alcohol or taken a lot of drugs? Even smoking can lead to gallstone formation. You are guaranteed to have stones in there. Do a flush and find out, get your health back on track again!!! How many people have to suffer needlessly and get their gallbladders taken out!!?? Its insanity! Its pretty easy to clean out your liver. All it takes is a little effort and dedication. A liver flush costs very little to do, it is simple and easy and is no way detrimental to your body.


This is one of the most amazing things you can do for your health. The flush requires six day of preparation, followed by 16-20 hours of cleansing.


Apple Juice – six 32oz containers, which is 1.5 gallons

Or Malic Acid Powder (One teaspoon per quart of water)

Epsom Salts – 4 Tablespoons

Extra Virgin Olive Oil  – 4oz.

Fresh Grapefruit (pink best) or lemon/orange combination – 6oz.

2 pint jars, one with lid

For six days, do the following:

- Avoid processed foods, all meat products, dairy products, packaged foods and sugar. Basically eat a vegetarian diet for these six days, avoiding sugar and processed foods. Drink only lemon water, herbal teas and the apple juice as recommended below.

-Every day drink one quart (32oz) of fresh organic apple juice, local or fresh juiced is best, non-pasteurized is best, but not always possible. The malic acid softens the stones.

to the bathroom too much right away, just from the apple juice, you can dilute with water. Drink it slowly throughout the entire day. Also drink regular water intake.

-Avoid cold or chilled foods and liquids. Eat and drink warm, or room temperature foods. Do not overeat, eat small meals. Avoid foods from animal sources, dairy products, fried foods and processed foods during this 6 days. Otherwise, eat normal meals.

-Cleanse on a weekend or when you will have the most time, specifically for the day of the actual flush, day 6. The new moon is best for the flush, or anytime between the new and full moons. Do not flush on the day of a full moon as the body holds more fluids in the brain and tissues on this day.

-Cleanse your colon before or ideally, the day of your flush, day 6.This will minimize discomfort or nausea and prevent back flushing of the oil mixture or wastes being cleansed out. It also helps to more quickly eliminate the gallstones.

-On day 6, drink all 32oz of apple juice in the morning or malic acid powder water. If hungry, eat a very light breakfast, oatmeal or fruits. Avoid all other foods. For lunch you can have steamed vegetables with rice, but make it a small meal. Do not eat any protein foods, butter or oil, add nothing to your steamed vegetables or rice. Do not eat or drink anything besides water after 1:30pm! Otherwise this may affect your passing of the stones.

The Actual Flush, Day 6

6pm – Add 4 tablespoons of Epsom salts to 24 ounces of water. This makes four 6oz servings. Drink the first glass, 6oz. now. It is bitter, tastes like a rubber hose to me. You can pinch your nostrils or use a straw if desired. This dilates the bile ducts, helping the stones to pass. Set out citrus fruit so that it is room temperature for use.

8pm – Drink second 6oz. glass of Epsom salts

9:30pm – if you have not yet had any bowel movements, take a water enema which will trigger bowel movements

9:45pm – Wash grapefruits (or lemons/oranges) and squeeze them by hand to remove pulp. You will need 6oz of juice. Pour the juice, along with the 4oz of extra virgin olive oil in a pint jar, close lid and shake vigorously, 20 times or so until watery. If you still feel you need to go the restroom, go ahead.

10pm – Stand next to bed, drink your concoction. You may use a straw or close nostrils. Drink it in one gulp if possible. Try to drink within 5 minutes at most.


This is critical to release stones. Turn off lights, lie flat on back, with head elevated higher than abdomen using pillows. If not comfortable, lie on your right side in the fetal position with knees pulled up. Lie still, do not speak, and put your attention on the liver and the moving of the stones. Some people put a castor oil pack over liver area.

You may feel stones traveling along the bile ducts. There should be no pain or spasms at all. If you feel the urge to have a bowel movement during the night, go ahead. Otherwise, sleep. You can see the stones released during your bowel movement.

The Next Morning

6am – Drink another 6oz glass of Epsom salts. Rest, read, pray, meditate, go back to sleep. You can even do light exercise, stretching, or yoga.

8am – Drink last 6oz glass of Epsom salts

10am – You may drink fresh squeezed juice, then 30 minutes later a piece of fruit, and an hour later a light meal. By the same evening or the next morning you should be back to normal, and probably feeling really good.

Expect a number of bowel movements, with gallstones and food residues. Only bile from the liver forms the green colored stones you will see. There may be tan or white stones, which are calcified and will sink to the bottom of the stool. You may see white or tan colored foam which may be cholesterol crystals and/or mucus your body has release, all good things!

**Understand that it might take 5,6,10, even 12 flushes to eliminate all stones. Once you start this process, you want to continue with flushes until you have no stones at all for two flushes. Leaving the liver half clean may cause a return of symptoms as more stone are moved forward. If your recovery seems short-lived, don’t be discouraged. It takes multiple flushes to undo years and years of buildup and damage. Each cleanse will become more and more effective as the function of the liver and gallbladder increases. You can do a flush every 3 weeks or once per month. After you are stone free for two consecutive flushes, do one every 6-8 months for maintenance. If gallstones are trapped in the colon, a colonic will clear them out. They can cause irritation, headache, discomfort, etc. if not addressed. A coffee enema or colonic will be of great benefit in this case.

Are your kidneys in need of cleansing?

If you have any discoloration under your eyes (dark circles) your kidneys are under stress and in need of cleansing. Avoid eating heavy meals late at night, drink plenty of pure water, take kidney cleansing herbs such as nettles, dandelions, and chanca piedra. Andreas Moritz has put together a great concoction of powerful kidney cleansing herbs (cats claw, marjoram, uva ursi, fennel feed, comfrey root, goldenrod, gravel root, hygrangea)which you drink in a tea over a period of 20 days. The kidneys are very delicate, blood-filtering organs that easy get congested as a result of poor digestion, stress and an irregular lifestyle. The main cause of congestion in the kidneys is kidney stones. Most kidney stones/ crystals/ sand, however, are too small to be recognized through modern diagnostic instruments such as X-rays.

These herbs, when taken daily for a period of 20-30 days, can help dissolve and eliminate all the various types of kidney stones, including uric acid stones, oxalic acid stones, phosphate stones, and amino acid stones. If you have a history of kidney stones and want to completely clean out your kidneys you may need to repeat this cleanse several times, at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks.

I also highly recommend various Chinese tonic jing herbs to strengthen the kidneys such as hu shou wu, cordyceps mushroom, rehmannia, reishi, chaga and goji berries. Walnuts also have a great affinity for the kidneys too.

A diet high in protein puts huge stress on our kidneys. Many bodybuilders are doing great harm to their bodies by consuming huge amounts of animal protein just to get another half inch on their biceps. Your face is a mirror to your health, not your muscle mass.
