You can have a very intense reactions in liver and gallbladder flush protocols. Consult your physician before performing any of them. Dr. Best has done 6 liver gallbladder flushes personally, and his first one was such an intense experience he thought he would have to go to the hospital, but it was just a severe detox reaction.
It is possible to release stones when doing a liver and gallbladder flush. You must use the orthophosphate drops to soften stones before doing a liver and gallbladder flush. Dr. Best did not personally see any stones released during the liver and gallbladder flush he performed. There are many reports of people releasing hundreds of stones, but Dr. Best can not verify this.
THERE IS ALSO THE RISK OF RELEASE A LARGE STONE THAT MAY BLOCK THE BILIARY DUCT ... IF THIS HAPPENS THIS IS A MEDICAL EMERGENCY AND YOU NEED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL.
This is not to scare you but make you aware of possible complications. That having been said many report wonderful benefits to doing a liver and gallbladder flush regime.
Liver Gallbladder Flush
There are 3 variations of the Liver/Gallbladder Flush
from Vianna Stibal
· Day 1 of cleanse. Take an herbal laxative in the evening.
· Day 2 to 4. Each morning place one hundred (100) drops of Ortho-Phos in a quart of high-quality apple juice and drink during the morning. During these three days you do not need to alter your diet. If for some reason you cannot drink apple juice, place 135 drops of Ortho-Phos in a quart of water and drink that during the morning. These drops are the basis of the cleanse. If you do not want to take the drops do not participate in this program.
· Evening of the fourth day. Eat supper at a fairly early time. Then about an hour before your normal bedtime take a cup of olive oil, a cup of coke, and 1 whole lemon squeezed. Use a high-quality olive oil, one that is cold pressed. Stir these three together and drink. The coke is used to help swallow the olive oil. Without the coke the olive oil is very hard to swallow. You will find the coke and lemon make the olive oil almost tasteless. (The original method included a small amount of Epsom salt, but most people found this too harsh. See this option at the end.)
· Immediately after you drink the olive oil mixture, go to bed. Put your knees up to your chest. Lie on your right side for half an hour. This will cause the oil to go directly to the gallbladder and liver. These organs will not know what to do with all that oil, so they will spasm and through off stones. Then you are free to get up and do as you wish.
· Day 5. Take an herbal laxative in the morning. This will help flush the stones out of the colon. [The cleaner your colon is the easier it is to flush stones.]
· Consider taking a colonic two days after the flush.
· Frequency. If you are really sick, (such as cancer), consider doing this once a month for a few months. Everyone's system is different. There are no absolute rules. For prevention, go on this at least once a year.
*** Just a warning - if you are very toxic you might have a harsh detox effect. When I did the liver gall bladder flush at the end of the 10 day Master Cleanse - I woke at 5 a.m. in severe cramps, flu like symptoms, shaking, diarrhea and I felt like vomiting.. After 2 hours I was fine, but wanted to let you know that if you're very toxic, detoxifying too rapidly can cause Herxheimer's reaction (which is flu like symptoms). On the converse my father and many patients only reported being flushed out the next day. So don't do this with work the next day. I had one person who called and said nothing at all happened - then 6 days later the oil flushed out her system. That's how plugged up she was. If your digestive system is sluggish I personally would do a colon cleanse first so the toxins being eliminated can get out of your system. I have done this liver/gall bladder flush several times since and have not had any harsh reactions like the first.
Also I recommend adding 1 to 1 1/2 lemons juiced to the oil to help emulsify it and make it easier to swallow. I find it easy to drink this way. I also use Omega 3, 6, 9 which is a better oil mixture - just make sure the date has not expired. Omega 3, 6, 9 are oils which are need to decrease inflammation in the body and balance the production of hormones which are made from these Omega Fatty Acids.
THE BUPLEURUM LIVER CLEANSE
from Vianna Stibal
For a more gentle cleanse, which takes a little longer but is still very efficient, we are referring our clients to a product called Bupleurum manufactured by "Planetary Formulas". This is a gentle liver cleanse, which strengthens the liver as it cleans the system. If you cannot find this product in your health food store, you can order this from us for $20.00, which includes shipping and handling. You can also order it in Australia, from our friends listed above.
Epsom Salt Variation
The purpose of the Epsom salt is supposedly to relax the bile duct and let the stones pass through. If the bile duct is not relaxed enough a stone could get stuck. We have heard of this happening to about ten people out of thousands that have completed this flush. Epsom salt can be rather harsh with the system, and it is of general opinion that this step is not needed, but we offer it anyway.
· Take two tablespoons of Epsom salt. On the third day of the liver flush, two hours after lunch dissolve two tablespoons of Epsom salt in three ounces of water. Drink this. If you find the taste intolerable, add a little citrus juice.
· Evening dose. Five hours after lunch dissolve one tablespoon of Epsom salt in three ounces of water and drink it.
· The next morning. Take one tablespoon of Epsom salt dissolved in three ounces of water and drink it.

According to the Merriam-Webster definition, a Herxheimer reaction is caused as a direct result of using spirocheticidal drugs ( mainly antibiotics ) to treat individuals with a spirochetal disease which results in an increase in the symptoms of the treated condition. Dorlands Medical Dictionary adds that the condition is a short term immunological reaction which causes fever, chills, muscle pain, headaches, and skin lesions. Both Adolph Jerisch, an Australian dermatologist, and Karl Herxheimer, a German dermatologist, are credited with the discovery of the condition, although Jerisch published his findings in1895, seven years earlier than his brother.
It is widely recognized that the herxheimer reaction is caused by the release of toxic chemicals ( endotoxin ) released from the cell walls of dying bacteria due to effective treatment. This, in turn, results in a response from the immune system which manifests the symptoms experienced by the individual being treated.
The generalized symptoms of a herxheimer reaction, as listed above, are not all inclusive. The severity of the reaction is proportional to the dosage of the drug causing the reaction, and a wide variety of symptoms can result if the waste products reach any specific areas of the body. In such cases, the added symptoms are localized to the area or affected system. Nausea, diarrhea and soreness of the throat may also result.

Physical healing can also take place on many levels and many different modalities.
Dr. Best began his journey using Reiki and then moved into deep tissue neuromuscular reeducation. After becoming proficient in those areas, Dr. Best became a chiropractor. During his education he also studied Applied Kinesiology (AK) through the ICAK, as he had been helped directly from AK with his own back injuries, having broken his back at the age of 16.
Dr. Best found chiropractic and AK to be the fastest way to help heal physical disturbances in the body. Dr. Best is not your standard chiropractor only manipulating the spine for 5 minutes. Dr. Best utilizes his tools with soft tissue, muscle integration and balancing the muscular and nervous systems. The idea is that muscles move bones and integrating AK with physical adjustments allows the body to maintain its corrections.
Chiropractic adjustments don't have to hurt; in fact they shouldn't. There is no need to create more physical stress when releasing the chronic stress from the body. In some cases people are highly sensitive to touch, in these cases Dr. Best uses low force adjusting techniques like Activator, DNFT and respiratory corrections.
Ignoring the nutritional component in healing can prolong the time frame in which the body heals.
Dr. Best is highly skilled at finding what nutritional deficiencies may be creating or holding on to dysfunction in the body. The cells of the body need the proper balance of nutrients and alkalinity to heal properly.
Certain foods can be inflammatory to your system and may be the underlying culprit to a chronic injury. Dr. Best utilizes and non-inflammatory diet in weight loss protocols, but also where chronic inflammation is a problem in a patient's recovery.
Dr. Best also offer Allcat testing for an in depth look at inflammatory foods.
I found the best illustration of what explains the process in many forms of energy healing was the movie "What The Bleep Do We Know" , as it shows how the mere observation and intent of observer influences the behavior of the atomic structures and molecules. Light was observed to change its nature from a wave to a particle form just by being observed.
In Emoto's work "Messages from Water" we see how the physical structure is water at the molecular level is changed to form different crystal patterns based on intention and the vibration that is carried in words. This has huge relevance in our lives since we are more than 70% water and up to 90% water in the brain; in other words, if we are speaking degrading statements to ourselves we are affecting our own structure. Meditation and prayer also had a PROFOUND effect on the structure of the water.
When it comes to energy healing modalities some common sense still needs to be applied, because we are more than just 'light' energy bodies. We are also composed of denser frequencies of earth minerals which means that we may need healing with more than just 'light' energy, we may need minerals, herbs, medicine, surgery, exercise and chiropractic.
