My understanding is that liver congestion is a breeding ground for parasites. It takes liver flushing and continuing parasite cleansing to get the situation under control.
I did 6, maybe 8, flushes before I started the parasite cleanse. My next flush I passed easily 2 quarts of liver flukes ... no wonder my liver felt like a basketball inside my rib cage!!!!
After passing the flukes, I was in pain again ...... BAD PAIN!!!! The only thing that made sense to me was that the holes where the flukes had been were raw flesh exposed to pure alkaline bile. It took some liver specific juice fasting and milk thistle to get past this!
