One of the great things about summer is that it inspires you to get around to some of the health challenges that you need to deal with, but for whatever reason, choose not to. One of the things on my summer list was to try a gallbladder cleanse, the one where you drink apple juice for a week, to soften potential gall stones, eat a healthy whole food, mainly veggie based diet all week, then on THE DAY have breakfast/lunch, a dinner of berries with whipped cream, which is then chased down with an Epsom Salt concoction, and later olive oil mixed with lemon juice. This is supposed to be a simple, easy way to cleanse the gallbladder and the next day should be spent excreting stones. Sounds pretty weird! So why do I feel compelled to do it? I am not completely sure, it goes under that category of “that still small voice!” I have felt I needed to do this cleanse for over two years, and with a cross country move, a one state over move and starting a new life in TN, just never took the time. Plus, I will admit it, I was a little scared! But all the berries and whipped cream I can eat one night seems worth it at any price!View/Add Comments
I did the gallbladder bomb! Unfortunately - I did not write down immediately what happened, so this is a little fuzzy and from memory. I began the day with the juice breakfast and not eating any fat. I completed the following protocol.
Gallbladder Bomb & Liver Flush Cleanse Protocol
Remember - you need to check with your health provider FIRST before trying any flush or cleanse!
Will wonders never cease? I found both bottles of one of the boxed cleanses I tried last year, and have exactly enough to get me to the "gallbladder flush" day! Wow!
So I began taking the Original CleanseSMART Advanced Cleanse (Total Internal Cleanse) formula from Renew Life with AM supplements (I take 30 minutes before juice) and the PM supplements, I take right before bed.
This is a traditional, herbal formula sold complete, in a box, to help "internal cleansing and detoxification." Great ingredients in this formula include beet leaf, milk thistle, hawthorn berry, marshmallaw root, and more. In conjunction with the AM Juice Fast - it seems to be working WELL! I think I will ultimately have wonderful results.View/Add Comments
Quick update on the whole juice fast. We made it for 24 hours! It was exceedingly rough those last few hours. We had bought a variety of produce from memory of my Juice Lady book….and DD left spinach in the car overnight! I did not have the book with me, so had neglected to buy several other important ingredients, without running around town again. I was left with mainly fruit/carrots/beets that I can juice and was not doing well on just that.View/Add Comments
As January bursts upon us in full force, cold weather, snow and ice, in what feels like everlasting winter, I know I need to do another juice fast and I have, quite frankly, been dreading it. I love the fresh produce that bursts forth in spring and summer and enjoy all of the combinations!View/Add Comments
Mark Twain says "A little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors. I do not mean a restricted diet; I mean total abstinence from food for one or two days. I speak from experience; starvation has been my cold and fever doctor for 15 years, and has accomplished a cure in all instances."
Summer is the time of cleansing at The Prudent Wife and this summer is no different! I have been considering one particular cleanse for about 5 months, as strange as it may seem. It is the "Master Cleanse" or the Lemonade Diet, also known by several other names. This article will expand daily, sharing the Adventures with the Master Cleanse, recipes, thoughts, realities, and the who, what, where, when and why of it, along with charts and more! I thought I would do the MC alone, but my whole family determined to do it with me, so you will have the man's point of view, mine and our 13 year old daughter (yes, we checked with her doctor on juice fasting last summer and they are okay with it - but you check with yours)!!View/Add Comments
