Liver / Gallbladder

Hepatopathy: any disease of the liver.

Hepatotoxin: a toxin that destroys liver cells.

Cholestasis: stoppage or suppression of bile flow, due to factors within (intrahepatic cholestasis) or outside the liver (extrahepatic cholestasis).

Cirrhosis: a liver disease characterized pathologically by the loss of the normal microscopic lobular architecture and regenerative replacement of necrotic parenchymal tissue with fibrous bands of connective tissue which eventually constrict and partition the organ into irregular nodules. The term is sometimes used to refer to chronic interstitial inflammation of any organ.

Cirrhosis of the liver is actually a group of chronic diseases of the liver. The disease has a lengthy latent period,

usually followed by the sudden appearance of abdominal pain and swelling, hematomyelis, dependent edema,

or jaundice. In advanced states, ascites, pronounced jaundice, portal hypertension, and central nervous system

disorders, which may end in hepatic coma, become prominent.



The signs and symptoms of hepatic cirrhosis are manifestations of interference with the major functions of the liver; that is: (1)the storage and release of blood to maintain adequate circulating volume; (2) the metabolism of nutrients and the detoxification of poisons absorbed from the intestines; (3) the regulation of fluid and electrolyte balance; and (4) production of clotting factors.

Symptoms include: intolerance to greasy foods; headaches after eating; light colored stool; foul smelling stool;

less than one bowel movement daily; constipation; hard stool; sour taste in mouth; grey colored skin; yellow

in whites of eyes; bad breath; body odor; fatigue and sleepiness after eating; pain in right side under rib cage; painful to pass stool; retain water; big toe painful; pain radiates along outside of leg; dry skin/hair; blood in stool; have had jaundice or hepatitis; high blood cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol; cholesterol level above 200; triglyceride level above 115.

Plan a relaxing, restful day as your body is purging itself and continue to eat low-fat meals.  Your gallbladder has just "run a marathon", and it needs rest now or you could precipitate a gallbladder attack.

You may see a change in your stool color, and/or light to dark green gelatinous objects in your stool this day and maybe the next. These contain purged bile from the gallbladder and are helping to detoxify the liver and relieve congestion in the gallbladder.  If there are a large number of these objects in the stool you may repeat the liver/ gallbladder flush in two to three weeks. Otherwise, the flush may be repeated as needed up to four times a year. Consult your doctor for how many flushes needed.


Consult with your health care professional within 1-3 days after the flush!
