Freedom in Christ requires discipline, but it’s a discipline rooted in delight.
Freedom in Christ comes from the delight of knowing you are the Beloved Child of God. Living as one loved by God enables you to say YES! to the things that please God’s heart and NO! to the things that have the potential to destroy your freedom and reduce you back to slavery.

DID YOU KNOW that cleansing the liver/gall bladder of gallstones can be a key player in digestion, hormone balance, energy, weight loss, healthy skin, brain function, proper sleep, and mental clarity?? Clearing gall stones (if you have them) is critical to maintaining gall bladder health, your body's ability to detoxify, and your body's ability to break down the good fats you're eating. SO, this means there are 2 parts to the popular "GOOD FATS" conversation:
#1 You have to be ingesting a fair amount of good fats (avocados, extra virgin olive oil, raw nuts/seeds, coconut oil, etc)
#2: Your body HAS to be able to DIGEST these fats.
It is the job of the liver to make 1-1.5 quarts of bile every 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 (like a little green punching bag that hangs off the liver under the front, right rib cage. Eating fat triggers the gallbladder to secrete bile into the upper digestive tract. For many people, including children, the biliary tubing is choked with gallstones (like a dam). When the gallbladder is scanned via ultrasound or X-rayed, often nothing is seen for 2 reasons: the stones are in the duct-work and not in the gallbladder OR they are too small and not calcified, which means they can't be picked up on X-ray. The stones get their green color from being coated with bile, and this is what you will see in the toilet when you do the cleanse. I used to keep my gall stones in the freezer in my office when I practiced in TN to show my patients the reality of what they look like, and to wake people up to what is hiding in their liver and gall bladder! Haha ;)
Gallstones are slightly porous and can pick up all the bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasites that are passing through the liver (your body’s major filter). In this way "nests" of infection are formed, forever supplying the body with fresh bacteria and a host of immune challenges (especially allergies)!! As the stones grow in size and number, the back pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. Imagine a kinked garden hose. So each time you eat fat, yes even the good ones, you have less bile secretion, and your body struggles to break down the fats you eat. The digestive, endocrine and immune systems cannot be permanently healed without removing these gallstones from the liver. You might be surprised to learn that the gall bladder is also a key player in knee, shoulder, upper arm, and upper back pain (especially that SHARP pain between the shoulder blades!). The end result is an over-reactive immune system (allergies, auto-immune disease, etc), the inability to manufacture healthy sex hormones (which are 50% fat), the inability to produce healthy cells with a strong cell wall to protect you from viruses/disease/etc, dry skin, skin that burns easily in the sun, dry cracked heels (like you need a pedicure ALL the time!), brain fog, the inability to lose weight, thyroid problems, perhaps eventually a gall bladder attack, and the list goes on.
Do YOU have any of these symptoms??
PLEASE LET PEOPLE KNOW that MOST gall bladder surgeries are totally unnecessary and 100% preventable!
Beware: medical professionals will often try to scare you into believing this is bogus or super dangerous. Take it to the Lord and ask Him what you should do.
NOTE: If you have Candida overgrowth, THAT is likely the root of your problem and is contributing to gall stones. Thus, a gall bladder cleanse MAY help, but WILL NOT be all you need to do. It is never wise to self-diagnose and do this without a Holistic Doctor’s instruction. Please do not email my office or message me on Facebook for specific advice pertaining to this cleanse. I can only advise those I have specifically recommended do this cleanse who are actively under my care. I cannot advise you if I do not know you. This is for educational purposes only.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED:
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1⁄2 cup Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
4 Tbsp Epsom salts
3 cups RO, Distilled, Spring, or purified water OR 3 cups fresh squeezed grapefruit or apple juice (I prefer grapefruit)
NOTE: You can substitute the 3 cups water (used to dissolve Epsom salt) with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit or apple juice. This tastes a bit better than just water.
*Choose a day like Friday or Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest (and have diarrhea) the next day. Do not take any medications (unless absolutely necessary; consult your physician) or supplements the day you start the cleanse. Eat a non-fat breakfast and lunch such as oatmeal with fruit, a smoothie with a water base, steamed vegetables with sea salt & lemon (no butter or oil), salads with lemon juice/raw apple cider vinegar, salt/pepper, quinoa porridge sweetened with cinnamon and stevia, etc. A fat-free diet on cleanse day allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones. This is important!
START: Do not eat or drink anything other than water after 2 pm. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later.
2:00 PM: Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 Tbsp. in 3 cups water (or fresh squeezed juice) and pour this into a jar/pitcher. This makes four servings, 3/4 cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only).
6:00 PM: Drink one serving (3/4 cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts mixture. If you did not prepare this ahead of time, mix 1 Tbsp. epsom salts in 3/4 cup water (or fresh squeezed juice) now. You may add 1/8 tsp. vitamin C powder to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth.
Get the olive oil and grapefruit (for the 10pm drink) out to warm up. You do not want to use a COLD grapefruit for this part.
8:00 PM: Repeat by drinking another 3/4 cup of mixture. You haven't eaten since 2pm, but you usually don't feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.
9:45 PM: Pour 1/2 cup (measured) olive oil into a pint jar or container with a well-sealed lid. Squeeze the grapefruit juice by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with fork or strainer. You should have at least 1/2 cup, more (up to 3/4 cup) is best. Add this to the 1⁄2 cup of olive oil. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake vigorously until your mixture is "watery" (this emulsifies the oil). Now visit the bathroom even if it makes you late for your 10pm drink. Don't be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.
10:00 PM: Be ready for bed ahead of time. Drink the oil and juice mixture. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down MUCH easier! You may use olive oil and vinegar salad dressing, or straight honey to chase it down between sips. Have these ready in a Tablespoon on the kitchen counter if necessary. You may take it all to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (15 minutes for very elderly or weak persons). Lie down immediately after your mixture is gone. You might fail to get stones out if you don't. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Don't clean up the kitchen or anything else. As soon as the drink is down, walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back OR on your RIGHT side with your head elevated on the pillow. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. This is a great time to rest with the Lord and pray about what's happening in your liver/gall bladder. Ask Him what He wants to show you through this process. Ask him if there is any bitterness or resentments He wants to deliver you from.
*SUGGESTIONS: READ Acts 8:9-25 ESV (Focus: vs 23 - gall of bitterness).
You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!). Sleep well :) A small percentage of people will wake up in the night with diarrhea. Sorry.
6:00 AM NEXT MORNING: Drink your 3rd dose of the Epsom salts mixture. If you have indigestion or nausea, wait until it is gone before drinking it. You may go back to bed. DON'T drink the mixture BEFORE 6:00 am.
8:00 AM: Take your 4th (and last...woohoo!!!) dose of the mixture. You may go back to bed again if you like.
After 2 more hours you may eat. Start with Organic 100% fruit juice. Wait 30+ minutes, and then introduce fruit or veggies. 1 hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By approximately dinner-time you should feel recovered enough to resume whatever eating plan you were on prior to the cleanse. Some people feel a bit crummy for the next day or 2. That is just evidence that there is something more serious going on and/or you really need more of these cleanses.
HOW DID YOU DO??
Expect diarrhea in the morning (it starts the 1st night or middle of the night for some people). You may want to have wet wipes on hand to prevent irritation. (You can use a colander to make sure you collect all stones, but it is certainly not required. Calcified stones and stones containing protein may sink, but a colander will catch all stones.) Take photos of your stones if you're gross like me!
Look for the green kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones and not food residue. Only bile from the liver is pea green. The bowel movement sinks, but gallstones float because of the cholesterol (fat floats). Count them all roughly, whether tan or green. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days, but as the stones from the rear travel forward and give you the same symptoms again. You need to repeat cleanses at 2-4 week intervals until you have little to no more stones. Never cleanse when you are ill or if you have known parasites.
Sometimes, the bile ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones. They appear as a "chaff" floating on top of the toilet bowl water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of tiny white crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging the stones. Congratulations on the completion of your first deep cleansing! Do not forget to repeat the cleanse in 2-4 weeks if you had any stones come out on your first cleanse. Happy cleansing friends!!
NOTE: It is always wise to be advised by a professional as this may be contraindicated for some individuals. If you suspect you have parasites, it is best to do a parasite cleanse under the care of your Holistic Doctor first. And again, if you have Candida overgrowth, this will purge stones from the gall bladder, but it will not resolve the root of the problem since yeast overgrowth will just lead to more stones over time.

SO, I have been really busy and feeling super sluggish the last few weeks – Bowels. energy. Waking up. Thyroid needing extra support lately. Skin a bit dull. Cranky. Irritable. Anxious. OVERWHELMED. Brain fog. Joint pain. Just NOT myself. The EASY, fear-based, take-this-into-my-own-hands solution would have been to call MY Holistic Doctor. BUT… I GOT THAT “CHECK” IN MY SPIRIT… INSTEAD, I felt like I was supposed to start a cleanse (praise God I keep those in stock) and go to bed early to spend time with Jesus.
I laid in bed last night confessing & repenting for my lack of discipline in some areas, laying at the feet of Jesus, asking Him to show me things in my life that distract me from His presence, peace and healing. “Jesus, show me, teach me, help me. FORGIVE ME for my rebellious ways.”
I LONG to wake up early daily and have more of a routine, but it seems as soon as I have a good stretch of waking by or before 6am, I blow it. Before long, I’m sleeping until 7-7:30am-ish, my day is full-speed ahead, it’s time to work…and my devotional time gets skipped….AGAIN! Another day overwhelmed and surviving on GRACE. * AND REPEAT * UGH. I know better. I KNOW what a day without “my daily bread” is… hungry, thirsty, empty.
“WHY GOD? WHAT AM I MISSING? Is this just “who I am” and I just need to work with it? Or is there something you want to change in me?” I know not to go down the shame and guilt road that leads to NOWHERE GOOD really fast. The enemy fires quick when we’re run down…”you’re lazy, pathetic, joke of a leader, never get it right, always late, never gonna change, phony, hypocrite”…. LIES. LIES. LIES…. Cast those down immediately!!
PRAISE: This morning I was awake by 5:45am!!! I sat down with my journal and Bible 1st thing and I heard God say: Make health A priority so that I can be THE PRIORITY EVERY DAY!
And then He showed me what MY NEXT STEPS were and what was “out of balance”. He told me I needed to cleanse my liver (confirmation!), set some healthy boundaries with clients and social media, and STOP checking my phone 1st thing in the morning. We also had a chat about “FEAR”. God helped me look at my list of symptoms objectively as I would any client I was working with. It was so obvious. I was not confused. My liver was bogged down. I let things get out of balance and got caught in the vicious cycle of infirmity/busy-ness/emotional chaos. Fear increased as my physical health took it’s toll on my priorities and daily routine. PERFECT LOVE casts out fear (1 John 4:18). My time in the Word, sitting amongst PERFECT LOVE had been lacking. FEAR has been holding me back from setting some new boundaries. God is blessing this ministry and my responsibilities are shifting.
GOD GAVE ME GRACE and got me out of bed. HE HELPED ME KEEP MY PRIORITIES STRAIGHT, and in the stillness, I could hear His voice. He was faithful to give me my “daily bread” as He promises!! HE TRULY IS A GOOD GOOD FATHER!!
As I write this at the end of the day, I feel better already!! God, OUR GREAT PHYSICIAN, The Doctor of all Doctors, took me to the ROOT! My thyroid is back to life already! Energy’s up. Poops are great (sorry! TMI! ha). Mind is calm. Anxiety down. Fog is lifting. Skin’s breaking out…that’s a good sign the garbage is coming out! Back to THRIVING in GRACE, not just surviving.
* * * KEEP IT SIMPLE * * *
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. – Mat 6:33 ESV
What has YOUR lack of health or discipline cost you?? Our merciful Father has SO MUCH MORE for us, if only we seek Him, ask Him, spend time with Him. We will save ourselves so much unnecessary suffering, so much wasted time and money, so much anxiety, so much frustration. He will show you the NEXT STEPS. He will protect you from becoming obsessive about health and chasing your tail. God’s Word can cut where no surgeon’s scalpel or whole food supplement can!
GOD is our Primary Care Physician. He may give you a referral or it may not be what you WANT to hear, but at least it came from the TRUSTED SOURCE of TRUE WHOLENESS! And in that, you can “Trust the process”.
