There are over 500 known functions of the liver, many of which are essential for life, all of which are essential for good health and vitality.
The liver is intimately involved in many of the important functions of our body. The liver secretes vital digestive juices that help us properly digest our food and cleanses our blood of the pesticides, steroids, pharmaceuticals, additives, etc. that we absorb. With the help of our liver we naturally expel the metabolic by-products and toxins produced from the regular functioning of our bodies. The liver also has a profound effect on the hormonal system, helping to regulate and balance hormonal activity to ensure the proper functioning of our neurological system.
It is almost impossible for any disease condition to develop until the liver becomes sluggish and weak. (But long before the liver begins to weaken, the bowel can become excessively toxic and sluggish.)
One of the biggest "missing links" in the world of western medicine is for doctors to acknowledge just how significant the liver is to all health and disease conditions... and that the 2 primary causes of liver problems are the overload of toxins from the bowel and suppressed negative emotions. Until the bowel is cleansed it is almost impossible to cleanse, purify, and strengthen the liver, and until the liver has been cleansed and strengthened, overcoming disease can be difficult. The good news however, is that it is relatively easy for the average person to cleanse the bowels which automatically releases toxic overloads from the liver.
Some Important Facts About the Liver
The Liver and your Digestive System
The digestive system is the hub of the entire body. It feeds all our glands, organs and in fact, every single cell. When the digestive system become sluggish, over-acid, and toxic, it becomes less and less efficient. After the bowel becomes unnaturally acidic, it attempts to protect itself by secreting a glycoprotein substance that lines the entire intestinal wall, called a "mucoid plaque." Indeed, this condition can occur anywhere in the digestive tract where over acidity arises, including the esophagus, the stomach, the entire small intestine and colon.
Once this develops, proper digestion becomes more and more dysfunctional. Then one problem occurs after another, and the bowel becomes a toxic sewer system. Once the bowel becomes toxic, the blood becomes toxic, for all the blood coming from the bowel, carrying the necessary nutrients to feed the heart, lungs, brain, muscles, etc. goes to the liver - nowhere else. Then the liver must deal with the toxic blood. After years of relentless toxicity from the bowel, the liver becomes more and more sluggish. After a while it no longer functions efficiently and toxic overloads begin to go to other parts of the body, such as the kidneys, heart, brain, joints, skin, lymph, etc. Disease manifests where the toxins settle. For when there is toxic settlement, there is lack of circulation, lack of oxygen and nutrients.
There are only 4 primary causes of disease
Suppressed negative emotions (adversely affecting the liver), lack of nutrients, toxins, and congestion (responsibility of liver, bowels and kidneys). Generally, all 4 of these conditions are present in almost every disease, and are reflected in the acid/alkaline balance of the digestive system. This is easily measured with a simple "pH" test,
A vast majority of people today test over-acid, and have developed significant layers of "mucoid plaque." Some test over-alkaline, which may reflect Candida and even more serious health deterioration, a further progression from long-standing over-acidity.
Gallstones in the Liver
Cleaning the liver bile ducts is one of the most powerful procedures that you can do to improve your body's health. Cleansing the liver of gallstones dramatically improves digestion, which is the basis of your whole health.
It is the job of the liver to make bile, 1 to 1½ quarts in a day! The liver is full of tubes (biliary tubing) that deliver the bile to one large tube (the common bile duct). The gallbladder is attached to the common bile duct and acts as a storage reservoir. Eating fat or protein triggers the gallbladder to squeeze itself empty after about twenty minutes, and the stored bile finishes its trip down the common bile duct to the intestine.
For many persons, including children, the biliary tubing in the liver is choked with gallstones. Some develop allergies or hives but some have no symptoms. When the gallbladder is scanned or X-rayed nothing is seen. Typically, they are not in the gallbladder. Not only that, most are too small and not calcified, a prerequisite for visibility on X-ray. There are over half a dozen varieties of gallstones, most of which have cholesterol crystals in them. They can be black, red, white, green or tan colored. The green ones get their color from being coated with bile.
Notice in the picture how many have imbedded unidentified objects. Are they fluke remains? Notice how many are shaped like corks with longitudinal grooves below the tops. We can visualize the blocked bile ducts from such shapes. Other stones are composites - made of many smaller ones - showing that they regrouped in the bile ducts some time after the last cleanse. At the very center of each stone is found a clump of
bacteria, according to scientists, suggesting that a dead bit of parasite might have started the stone forming.

As the stones grow and become more numerous the back pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. It is also thought to slow the flow of lymphatic fluid. Imagine the situation if your garden hose had marbles in it. Much less water would flow, which in turn would decrease the ability of the hose to squirt out the marbles. With gallstones, much less cholesterol leaves the body, and cholesterol levels may rise Gallstones, being porous, can pick up all the bacteria, cysts viruses and parasites that are passing through the liver. In this way "nests" of infection are formed, forever supplying the body with fresh bacteria and parasite stages. No stomach infection such as ulcers or intestinal bloating can be cured permanently without removing these gallstones from the liver. For best results, ozonate the olive oil in this recipe to kill any parasite stages or viruses that may be released during the cleanse.

Multiple yellow-tan faceted gallstones are seen in the opened gallbladder pictured here. It is possible for a stone to exit the gallbladder via the cystic duct. It may then produce obstruction of cystic duct, or it may get into the common bile duct and obstruct that. It may obstruct at the ampulla of Vater and produce a pancreatitis. Biliary tract obstruction leads to jaundice with increased total and direct bilirubin in serum. Judging from the size of the stones, and from the number, those stones have been created inside liver, inside hepatic bile ducts, and then have rolled down to the gallbladder. People who have such a small stones inside gallbladder, can easily cleanse them with gallstones cleanse. When your gallbladder is so full of stones, you can count that you already have at least 1000 stones inside your liver ! Note: Gallstones are not only tan/green in color. They can be of any color !
Signs of Liver Disease
1. ABNORMALLY YELLOW DISCOLORATION OF THE SKIN AND EYES. This is called jaundice which is often the first and sometimes the only sign of liver disease.
2. DARK URINE.
3. GRAY, YELLOW, OR LIGHT-COLORED STOOLS.
4. NAUSEA, VOMITING AND/OR LOSS OF APPETITE.
5. VOMITING OF BLOOD, BLOODY OR BLACK STOOLS. Intestinal bleeding can occur when liver diseases obstruct blood flow through the liver. The bleeding may result in vomiting of blood or bloody stools.
6. ABDOMINAL SWELLING. Liver disease may cause ascites, an accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity.
7. PROLONGED GENERALIZED ITCHING.
8. UNUSUAL CHANGE OF WEIGHT. An increase or decrease of more than 5% within two months.
9. ABDOMINAL PAIN.
10. SLEEP DISTURBANCES, MENTAL CONFUSION AND COMA are present in severe liver disease. These result from an accumulation of toxic substances in the body which impair brain function.
11. FATIGUE OR LOSS OF STAMINA.
12. LOSS OF SEXUAL DRIVE OR PERFORMANCE.
