My parents and I are on the Chinese Bitters, and will soon be beginning the GCG and then our first cleanses! I'm asking about the malic acid (or apple juice) fast not only for myself but for my parents, because although they're "going along with me" on this stuff, I'm not sure if I'm going to convice them to fast!
It looks like on Julia's site that if you do the cleanse with just oo/gj/es you are only doing a gallbladder cleanse, and if you add the malic acid, you are also doing a liver cleanse. Am I reading that correctly?
Also, is the fasting while taking the malic acid necessary, or are some people not fasting and still being successful?
My mom doesn't have a gallbladder, so it is important I advise her on a protocol that will include her liver in the flush.
Thanks so much for your help, Shelley! You are a god-send.
