This cleanse is used to eliminate cholesterol crystals, gallstones and other impurities from the liver and gallbladder.


Epsom salts   4 tablespoons

Olive oil         1/2 cup - (125mls) light olive oil

Fresh grapefruit (pink preferably)     1 large or 2 small for 200mls or 1 cup


Please take note of the following;

Start the cleanse at a time where you have the day after free so that you can deal with the effects of this powerful cleanse. Discontinue all supplements such as vitamins etc. If the cleanse is working you will get more than 6 strong bowel movements so expect diarrhoea, it's normal. Some people get 8 to 10 strong loose bowel movements after the first or second drink,  If this happens discontinue as your system is working positively and strongly. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids to keep your system hydrated.

Look for soft stones after each bowel movement, they may be floating on the surface of the toilet water. They are usually green in colour but can be any colour. Other floating material is probably cholesterol crystals.



Eat a no fat breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal with fruit, fruit juice, bread or preserves or honey, no butter or milk. This allows  the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.


Mix  4 tablespoons of epsom salts in 3 cups of water and refrigerate. This makes 4 servings, 3/4 cup each.

Do not eat or drink after 2pm.


Drink one serving (3/4) cup of the ice cold epsom salts.


Repeat by drinking another 3/4 cup of epsom salts. You haven't eaten since 2.00pm but you wont feel hungry.


Pour 1/2 cup (measured) olive oil into a jar. Squeeze the grapefruit by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with a fork. Shake the juice and oil until watery.


Drink the mixture you have made (important to drink standing up) Get it down within 5 minutes. Lie down immediately, this is imperative otherwise you may fail to remove any stones. Keep still for the next 20 minutes. You may feel stones travelling down the bile duct. Go to sleep.

Next morning

Upon waking take the third dose of epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Do not take this next dose before 6.00am.

2 hours later

Take the fourth and last dose of epsom salts. Drink 3/4 cup. You may go back to bed.

After 2 more hours

You may eat but start with fruit juice. Half hour later eat fruit,  then one hour later eat regularly although keep it light.
