CLEANSING THE LIVER BILE DUCTS is the most powerful procedure that you can do to improve your body’s health. Cleansing the liver of gallstones dramatically improves digestion, which is the basis for your whole health.
The liver is one of the most important organs in the body. It is responsible for over 500 functions. When your liver is sluggish, it will affect many other processes causing you to feel sub-optimal. Some of the processes that the liver plays a key role in are: metabolizing fat, manufacturing enzymes and hormones, releasing bile for digestion, and detoxifying harmful substances. When spring comes around, the liver is more than ready for a break from all this added stress!
You can also expect your allergies to disappear more with each cleanse you do! Incredibly, it also eliminates shoulder, upper arm and upper back pain. You will have more energy!
YOUR WONDERFUL POWERFUL LIVER! – It is the job of the liver to make over 1 quart of bile a day! The liver is full of tubes (bilary tubing) that deliver the bile to one large tube (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 people, including children, the bilary tubing is choked with gallstones.
