About this Book
In this revised edition of his best-selling book, The Amazing Liver Cleanse, Andreas Moritz addresses the most common but rarely recognized cause of illness -- gallstones congesting the liver. Twenty million Americans suffer from attacks of gallstones every year. In many cases, treatment merely consists of removing the gallbladder, at the cost of $5 billion a year. But this purely symptom-oriented approach does not eliminate the cause of the illness, and in many cases, sets the stage for even more serious conditions. Most adults living in the industrialized world, and especially those suffering a chronic illness such as heart disease, arthritis, MS, cancer, or diabetes, have hundreds if not thousands of gallstones (mainly clumps of hardened bile) blocking the bile ducts of their liver.
This book provides a thorough understanding of what causes gallstones in the liver and gallbladder and why these stones can be held responsible for the most common diseases so prevalent in the world today. It provides the reader with the knowledge needed to recognize the stones and gives the necessary, do-it-yourself instructions to painlessly remove them in the comfort of one's home. It also gives practical guidelines on how to prevent new gallstones from being formed. The widespread success of The Amazing Liver Cleanse is a testimony to the power and effectiveness of the cleanse itself. The liver cleanse has led to extraordinary improvements in health and wellness among thousands of people who have already given themselves the precious gift of a strong, clean, revitalized liver.
Preview of this Book
Most people believe that gallstones can be found only in the gallbladder. This is a common false assumption. Most gallstones are actually formed in the liver and comparatively few occur in the gallbladder. You can easily verify this assessment by giving yourself a liver cleanse. It matters little whether you are a layperson, a medical doctor, a scientist, or someone who no longer has a gallbladder and, therefore, is believed to be free of gallstones altogether. The results of the liver cleanse speak for themselves. No amount of scientific proof or medical explanation can make these any more valuable than they already are. Once you see hundreds of green or beige-colored gallstones floating in the toilet bowl during your first liver flush, you will intuitively know that you are on to something very important in your life. To satisfy your curious mind you may decide to take the stones to a laboratory for chemical analysis or ask your physician what he thinks about all that. But what is most significant in this experience is the fact that you have taken active responsibility for your own health, perhaps for the first time in your life.
Not everyone is as fortunate as you are. An estimated 20% of the world's population will develop gallstones in their gallbladder at some stage in their lives. This figure, however, does not account for the many more people who will develop gallstones in their liver or already have them. During my thirty years of practicing natural medicine I have dealt with thousands of people suffering from all types of diseases. I can document that each person, without exception, has had considerable quantities of gallstones in their liver. Surprisingly, only relatively few of them reported to have had a history of gallstones in their gallbladder. Gallstones in the liver are, as will be seen in this book, the main impediment to acquiring and maintaining good health, youthfulness and vitality. They are, indeed, one of the major reasons people become ill and have difficulty recuperating from illness.
The failure to recognize the incidence of gallstone formation in the liver may very well be the most unfortunate oversight that has ever been made in the field of medicine, both orthodox and complementary. Relying so heavily on blood tests for diagnostic purposes, as conventional medicine does, may be a big disadvantage with regard to assessing liver health. Most people who have a physical complaint of sorts have perfectly normal liver enzyme levels in the blood, despite suffering liver congestion. Liver congestion and stagnation are among the most common health problems, yet conventional medicine makes no reference to them, nor does it have a way to diagnose these conditions. Liver enzyme levels in the blood become elevated only when there is advanced liver cell destruction, as is the case, for example, in hepatitis or liver inflammation. Liver cells contain large amounts of enzymes. When ruptured, the enzymes enter the blood and signal liver abnormalities. But by then, the damage has already occurred. It takes many years of congestion before such an event becomes possible. Therefore, typical clinical tests are not a reliable way to detect gallstones in the liver.
By understanding how gallstones in the liver contribute to the occurrence of almost every type of disease, and by taking some simple steps to remove them, you are able to put yourself in charge of restoring your own health and vitality on a permanent basis. The implications of applying the liver cleanse for yourself or, if you are a health practitioner, for your patients, are immensely rewarding. To have a clean liver is to have a new lease of life.
The liver has direct control over growth and functioning of every cell in the body. Any kind of malfunction, deficiency or abnormal growth pattern of the cell is largely due to poor liver performance. Due to its extraordinary design, the liver often 'seems' to perform normally (balanced blood values), even after it has lost up to 60% of its original efficiency. As deceiving this may be to the patient and his doctor, the origin of most diseases can easily be traced to the liver.
All diseases or symptoms of ill health are caused by an obstruction of some sort. If a blood vessel is blocked and therefore can no longer provide speedy delivery of vital oxygen or nutrients to a group of cells, the cells will have to enforce specific emergency measures in order to survive. Of course, many of the afflicted cells will not survive the 'famine' and will simply die off. But other, more resilient cells will learn to adjust to the adverse situation (cell mutation) and live of trapped, toxic metabolic waste products. Although, in reality, such a survival response helps to prevent the body's immediate demise through septic poisoning, we tend to label it as 'disease'. In this case, the label is known as cancer.
There are other, more apparent obstructions that can disrupt our well-being. A continually constipated colon prevents the body from eliminating the waste products contained in feces. The withholding of waste in the lower parts of the intestines leads to a toxic colon and, if the situation is not resolved, to a toxic body. Kidney infection and kidney failure occur when a calcified stone obstructs the flow of urine in the kidneys or bladder. The build up of mineral deposits in the urinary system can lead to fluid retention and weight gain. If hardened mucous blocks the air passages of your lungs, you literally run out of breath. Poor hearing may result if sticky mucous enters the ducts that connect your throat with your ears. Likewise, a thickening of the blood caused by highly acid-forming foods or drinks may restrict its flow through the capillaries and arteries, and lead to numerous problems in the body, ranging from simple skin irritation to arthritis, heart attack, or stroke.
These or similar obstructions in the body are directly and indirectly linked with restricted liver performance -- in particular, to an impasse caused by gallstones in the liver and gallbladder. The presence of chunks of clotted bile (gallstones) in these organs greatly interferes with such vital processes as the digestion of food, elimination of waste and detoxification of harmful substances in the blood. By decongesting the liver bile ducts and the gallbladder, the body's 60-100 trillion cells will be able to 'breathe' more oxygen, receive sufficient amounts of nutrients, efficiently eliminate their metabolic waste products, and maintain perfect communication links with the nervous system, endocrine system and every other part of the body.
