I can attest to the 'stones' not being green because of the olive oil. I tested that by substituting flaxseed oil for olive oil. The green color is bilirubin from bile.
I believe that the persisting reformation of 'stones' has to do with 'sluggish' bile. There's medical literature to support that these 'soft' stones are formed in the bile ducts in the liver (I don't have a gallbladder), and may be the result of GI tract microbial imbalance. Bile is a natural probiotic and the not so friendly bacteria manage to slow down bile production.
The number of medical journal articles related to intestinal microbiota studies has increased significntly over the last three years. Some are very technical, but in general the medical community is beginning to recognize the complex ecosystem residing in the gut as an organ that performs many functions and if it's thrown out of balance, it can wreak havoc on the human host and other organs.
I'm only recently learning this, because I'm trying to understand the same things as you are; which is "why do the flushes create such dramatic improvements, but yet, the 'stones' never seem to end?" My own regarding Liver Flush success and GI Tract infection will follow below, but first, here's an excerpt from a 2010 physiology journal article:
"D. Disorders of the (Gastro Intestinal Tract) GIT Accessory Organs
An involvement of the gut microbiota in the formation of Gallstones has recently been demonstrated. Abnormal metabolism and secretion of cholesterol and bile acids are a primary pathophysiological defect in the formation of gallstones, with intestinal hypomotility and chronic inflammatory changes being contributing factors (326). As discussed previously, gut microbiota plays a central role in the regulation of all of these processes and, as such, is indirectly implicated in cholelithiasis. To demonstrate this, contamination of lithogenic bile with members of the gut microbiota has recently been shown (1, 37). The majority of the cultured bacteria belonged to Enterobacteriaceae, and some isolates to Enteroccocus and Streptococcus genera (1, 37). The presence of gut microbiota members in lithogenic bile could be an indication of increased intestinal permeability during biliary obstruction (332), likely contributing to increased inflammatory response and stone formation. Alternatively, bacterial contamination could instigate lithogenesis by inducing cholestasis."
A lot of reading, but here's my story;
Following my own Candida die-off after a course of Nystatin powder several years ago, I went from an incredible level of energy, to a crash whereby I was indescribably sick. I had brain fog, developed Psoriasis and had joint soreness. Doctors said I had psoriatic arthritis. I also had discomfort in my upper right quadrant. I went to a number of doctors and had chest x-rays, ultrasounds and a number of tests, but mainstream doctors back then wouldn't look for something like candida. They were starting to believe that it was psychosomatic, but I wouldn't give up. The summer heat would make me incredibly weak and I had no tolerance for any foods with fat. Since ultrasound had shown no sign of gallstones, and because I persisted, one of my Doctors decided to perform a gastroscopy and collect a bile sample. I was awake through the whole procedure. I was administered a drug through IV that was intended to stimulate my gall bladder to excrete bile while a sample container in my small intestine collected the sample. It didn't strike me until years later what the Doctor said after he finally pulled out the sample and showed it to me. He said that he had a difficult time collecting a decent sample. When the test results on my bile came back, he said that I tested positive for crystals in my bile and that it was possible that the crystals were causing my discomfort. He said that I could have my gall bladder removed, and that doing so may relieve my discomfort. The surgeon told me that under these circumstances, only about 5% of patients get relief from surgery, but I was desperate, and followed through with the surgery. The surgeon was right; bad idea and no relief. Big mistake! Now I had no gallbladder and was still sick. I went back to my dermatologist. I should have stuck with his program before going to other doctors. He did have me try the liver/gallbladder flush after I had crashed, and before I had my gallbladder out, but I did it halfheartedly, because I didn't believe that it was going to help. I now know that he was on the right track.
He started me on Tanalbit along with some other products, but I noticed that the Tanalbit resulted in significant improvement in my energy. I started to run in '97, because I was starting to feel much more energetic after taking Tanalbit in larger than recommended dosage. I had my ups and downs but restarting a course of Tanalbit along with cholacol (bovine bile salts) and Livaplex, both liver support supplements always re-energized me. It wasn't until 2003 or so that I really started to read about The Clark Flush . Back then curezone was in its infancy. As I read about it though, it started to make sense and I recalled what the doctor had said about my bile 1) he had difficulty collecting a sample and 2) the sample contained crystals. I decided to try The Clark Flush , but I followed it to a "T".
or overloading of the liver with toxins, as the possible reason why I became sick from the die off. Hepatotoxicity leads to cholestasis, or impaired bile flow. Without bile, fats are not digested. Bile is also a natural Antibiotic for the small intestine. So, die-off can lead to toxic liver overload, toxic overload leads to cholestasis. Cholestasis allows opportunistic organisms to populate the digestive tract which leads to more toxins, continued cholestasis, the inability to digest fats, etc. Excess bile in the liver leads to fatty liver disease. I think of the candida toxins as a poison, just like alcohol and other drugs which can damage the liver. It was a vicious cycle for me. A Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis showed that I had overgrowths of Candida Parapsilosis, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and Staphylococcus Aureus along with undigested fats.
My success was the result of breaking the cycle by restoring bile flow through liver flushes, while fighting the candida and other gram positive organisms with products like Tanalbit. The Clark Paracleanse may have the same effect as Tanalbit. I restored bile flow by using The Clark Flush . Restoring bile flow in and of itself, made a significant difference for me and restored my health, energy and sensitivities to many foods. I have no more joint pain and my Psoriasis has cleared.
I also have measurable, step change improvements in my running performance with each consecutive flush that add credibility to its effectiveness. It's repeatable with each sequence of flushes, and based on that data I've collected, one Clark Flush is just the beginning of the improvement. Each subsequent flush, which are conducted at 2 week intervals, resulted in a measurable increase in my running pace. I have not gone beyond 7 flushes, but that was enough for me to complete my first marathon at the age of 42, and to do it so fast that I qualified for the Boston Marathon. Not an easy feat. 26.2 miles at 7:30 per mile average pace. I like to think of the flushes as being a "defibrillator" for the liver.
I'm still determined to read more of the studies on intestinal microbiota to understand more about how to fully restore the balance so that bile flow is no longer impaired.
