What's your goal?: I'M ALL FOR IT IF by "cleanse" you mean adopting a healthy lifestyle with routine exercise, cutting out tobacco, reducing alcohol & sugary drinks, minimizing highly processed foods & fats, & adding in lean proteins, whole fruits, vegetables, & nuts. DON'T DO IT IF instead you mean taking some fad diet, enema, colonic, or purgative to lose weight or supposedly rid your body of unspecified "toxins." ...Read more

I need epsom salt for a liver cleanse but it is not available in my country. What can I replace it with?

Liver cleanse: Hello ~ what's a liver cleanse? Replace it with nothing. The liver is not cleansed with Epsom salts (urban legend). The liver is cleansed with good living and Godliness. Reduce alcohol, FATTY diet (bad) and drugs that are not prescribed and ask why even for those. The only thing Epsom salts will do is give you diarrea.

Is it problematic to swallow 3/4 of olive oil a few hours after taking epsom salts for a liver cleanse?

Is it problematic to swallow 3/4 of olive oil a few hours after taking epsom salts for a liver cleanse?

Be careful: The olive oil is meant to get your gallbladder contracting to push things out. If you have a few stones in there, you may end up in a world of hurt. Consider suporting the liver through supplementation, in which case "detox" will occur naturally. Make sure you take fiber to insure that toxins are bound up and excreted in your stool. Probiotics can help - certain bacteria recirculate toxins. ...Read more
