Twenty-four hour detox? Four ingredients? I could do that! Well, it’s not as easy as it sounds, but the results were surprising – weight loss, restored energy, improved digestion, a clear-mind….oh, and a cleaner gallbladder and liver to boot!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Epsom Salts – 4 Tablespoons
- Olive Oil light – 1/2 Cup
- Fresh Pink Grapefruit
- Container with lid
- 4 packets of Emergen-C Super Orange powder
- Close proximity to a bathroom
Day before cleanse: Stop any parasite program or kidney herbs the day before the cleanse.
Day of cleanse: Continue to take prescription medication but discontinue any supplements for this day. Do not eat any foods containing fat. Cooked cereal, fruit, juice, breads, potatoes, vegetables are all ok. No butters or meats or eggs, anything with fat in it.
2 pm: Do not eat or drink after 2 pm. If you do, you may get ill during cleanse. Mix 4 tablespoons Epsom salt in 3 cups of water in your container with lid and refrigerate. You will add the Emergen-C packet to each dose later.
6 pm: Drink one serving (3/4 C each) of Epsom salt mixture. Add the Emergen-C packet at this time. Some mouthfuls of water is okay after this.
8pm: Drink another dose of the salt mixture. Remember not to eat or drink.
9:45pm: Pour 1/2 cup olive oil into a container with a lid. Squeeze the grapefruit by hand into the measuring cup. You should have at least 1/2 cup or more of juice. Add these two ingredients together and shake until watery. Get ready for bed and finish everything you need to so you can go to bed at 10pm.
10 pm: Drink the olive oil mixture. Drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes if you can. If you need to lick a small amount of cinnamon or brown sugar for the taste afterward that is ok.
As soon as you finish, immediately walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. You might fail to get the stones out if you don’t. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Try to keep perfectly still for 20 minutes and then go to sleep!
The following day
After 6 am: Upon waking, take your 3rd dose of salts. Don’t take this portion before 6 am. If you have indigestion or nausea, wait until it is gone before drinking the next dose of the Epsom salt mixture. You may go back to bed, but set your alarm for 2 hours later.
2 hours later: Take your 4th dose of the salts. This may be difficult, so drink a little water with it if you need to. If you feel it might make you sick, disregard this last one.
2 hours later: You may have started going to the bathroom by now. Stay hydrated; at this point you can drink fruit juice and/or water. When you start to feel like eating you can. Keep it light.
Disclaimer: There are many other sites that recommend this detox. The research I found was overwhelmingly positive. Do your research. If you have any health concerns, especially related to your kidneys, gallbladder and/or liver, ask your doctor first before doing this.
