One of, if not THE most common lab questions I get asked about is how to lower cholesterol naturally. I spoke about this in an earlier post about a year ago. If you’re interested in reading it click here. This past week I had several inquiries and want to share another very effective process to achieve the desired result.
First, let me explain how the liver, gall bladder and cholesterol are related. The liver makes 80% of your body’s cholesterol. Excess cholesterol is flushed out of the body through the intestines when bile is released during a meal. If the gall bladder has any stones in it, the release of bile (and excess cholesterol) may be hindered. A liver/gall bladder cleanse can clear these stones and support lowering cholesterol.
A liver cleanse takes about a day and a half to complete. The process involves avoiding fat for a day and consuming only fruits and vegetables. Bile is used in the body to break down fat, so we want to build-up our stores of bile. The next morning you will see hundreds or thousands of gall stones floating in the toilet. These green and sometimes yellow stones, are released with ease to allow bile and excess cholesterol to be freely released from the liver and gall bladder.
