I certainly agree that Liver Cleansing
and detox is essential. But I've come to question whether Hulda-Clark-style Liver Flushes
are the best way to go about it. I like the slow-but-steady approach where you can work at the cleanse day in and day out as part of your lifestyle, rather than heroic measures that make you feel better if they don't kill you first.
In the Gerson protocol, you drink many fresh-squeezed vegetable juices daily and do coffee enemas
at a ratio of one coffee enema
to every 3 cups vegetable juice taken. Also, once or twice a week you do a castor oil treatment, consisting of two tablespoons castor oil by mouth followed by a coffee enema
mixed with castor oil 5 hours later. I find this protocol slowly but steadily builds health, rather than subjecting the body to cleansing shocks that may leave you better off and may leave you worse off. I'm struck by the number of people in the Liver-Flush
forum who suffer severe distress following their Liver Flush
and post panicky HELP messages.
I'm not absolutely certain that the Gerson protocol accomplishes everything the Liver Flushes
accomplish, but I suspect they do. Unlike Clark, Gerson had extremely well-proven, well-investigated, thoroughly verified success against advanced cancer. And he believed that cleansing, detoxing and rebuilding the liver was the key. So he must have been doing something right!
