Mechanism of the liver flush.
is a Hyperosmotic saline type laxative which acts within 1-2 hours. It contracts the gallbladder, relaxes the sphincter of Oddi, increases gastric, intestinal and pancreatic secretion and production of cholecystokinin.
Choleccystokin is a substance that signals to the liver and gallbladder that bile is required by the duodenum.
The Spinccter of Oddi is a muscular valve that opens th bile duct to the duodenum. Epsom Salts
should be given in dilute solution to a fasting individual.
Hyperosmotic saline type laxative means that the magnesia acts to pull a salt or saline solution into the intestines from the blood. This excessive fluid then provides a flushing or laxative action within the intestines. There is an inherent loss of salt from this process.
The Epsom salts also purges the stomach of its contents ensuring that it is fully emptied to receive the flush potion.
Olive oil/ citric acid
The can be consumed separately but if mixed together to form an emulsion will improve the flushing function.
The mixture of oil and lemon/grapefruit juice is extremely acid. The stomach will not need to process the mixture by adding stomach acid or churn the concoction as is would with complex foods. A small amount of the stomach contents is secreted into the duodenum where it is sampled. Immediately the production of cholecystokinin is simulated by the olive oil which signals the galbladder and liver that bile is required. The olive oil potion then rapidly transit into the duodenum within about 20 minutes. Very large amounts of bile are required to mix with fat and also large quantities of bicarbonate, found in bile and secretions from the pancreas to neutralise the acid. There is a resultant tidal wave of biliary activity to process the large quantity of high acid high fat in the potion.
Acid food can not pass into the intestines because it would damage the delicate intestinal lining. The duodenum although only 9 inches
long is the organ where the acid levels are regulated.
The combination of the Epsom salts followed by the oil and acid meal ensures a very effective flushing of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas.
The second doses of Epsom salts taken after the flush potion at a time dependant upon the protocol adopted ensure the rapid transit of gallstones, stale bile and other potentially toxin debris through the intestines where it is evacuated without being re-absorbed. The ileum which is a part of the intestines just before the colon start is responsibly to reabsorbing 80 to 90 percent of the bile secreted by the liver and gallbladder.
