All diseases or symptoms of ill health are caused by an obstruction of some sort. For example, a blood capillary that is blocked can no longer deliver vital oxygen and nutrients to a group of cells it is in charge of supplying. To survive, these cells will need to enforce specific survival measures. Of course, many of the afflicted cells will not live through the ‘famine’ and will simply die off. Yet other, more resilient cells will adjust to this adverse situation through the process of cell mutation and learn to utilize trapped metabolic waste products, such as lactic acid, to cover their energy needs. These cells may be compared to a man in the desert who, for lack of water, relies on drinking his own urine in order to live a little longer than he would otherwise. Cell mutation leading to cancer is only the body’s final attempt to help prevent its immediate demise through septic poisoning and a collapsing organ structure.
Although common practice, it is far-fetched to call the body’s normal response to the accumulation of toxic waste matter and decomposing cell material a disease. Unfortunately, ignorance of the body’s true nature has caused many to believe that this survival mechanism is an autoimmune disease. The word autoimmune suggests that the body attempts to attack itself and practically tries to commit suicide. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cancerous tumours result from major congestion in the connective tissues, blood vessel walls, and lymphatic ducts, all of which prevent healthy cells from receiving enough oxygen and other vital nutrients.
Other, more apparent obstructions can disrupt your well-being just as much. A constipated large intestine prevents the body from eliminating the waste products contained in faeces. The holding back of faecal matter in the lower parts of the intestinal tract leads to a toxic environment in the colon and, if the situation is not resolved, in the entire body.
Kidney infection and kidney failure may occur in response to the accumulation of calcified stones or deposits of kidney grease, thereby obstructing the flow of urine in the kidneys or urinary bladder. The buildup of such mineral deposits in the urinary system can lead to fluid retention, weight gain, and dozens of disease symptoms.
If acidic, toxic waste matter builds up in the chest and lungs, the body responds with mucus secretions to trap these noxious substances. As a result, the air passages of your lungs become congested, and you literally run out of breath. If your body is already highly toxic and congested, you may even develop a lung infection. Lung infections occur to help destroy and remove any damaged, weakling cells that otherwise would start rotting or have already been decomposed (pus formation). Lung congestion prevents the natural removal of damaged or weak cells. If the congestion is not cleared up through natural means, or if it increases further through poor dietary habits, the pus will be trapped in the lung tissue. Naturally, destructive bacteria will increasingly populate the scene to assist the body in its desperate effort to clear up this congested area, which comprises decomposing cells and other waste products. Doctors call this survival mechanism staph infection, or pneumonia.
Poor hearing and ear infections may result if sticky mucus filled with toxins and/or dead or live bacteria enter the ducts that run from your throat to your ears (Eustachian tubes). Likewise, thickening of the blood caused by highly acid-forming foods or beverages may restrict its flow through the capillaries and arteries, and thereby lead to numerous conditions, ranging from simple skin irritation to arthritis or high blood pressure, even heart attack and stroke.
These or similar obstructions in the body are directly or indirectly linked to restricted liver performance ? in particular, to an impasse caused by gallstones in the liver and gallbladder. The presence of chunks of hardened bile and other trapped organic or inorganic substances in these organs greatly interferes with such vital processes as the digestion of food, elimination of waste, and detoxification of harmful substances in the blood. By decongesting the liver bile ducts and the gallbladder, the body’s 60 to 100 trillion cells will be able to breathe more oxygen, receive sufficient amounts of nutrients, efficiently eliminate their metabolic waste products, and maintain perfect communication links with the nervous system, endocrine system, and all other parts of the body.
Almost every patient suffering a chronic illness has excessive amounts of gallstones in the liver. A doctor can easily confirm this by having her chronically ill patient do a liver flush. It is apparent that unless a specific liver disease is found, this vital organ is rarely considered a culprit for other diseases. The majority of gallstones in the liver consist of the same harmless constituents as are found in liquid bile, with cholesterol being the main ingredient. A number of stones consist of fatty acids and other organic material that has ended up in the bile ducts. The fact that the majority of these stones are just congealed clumps of bile or organic matter makes them practically invisible to x-rays, ultrasonic technologies, and computerized tomography (CT).
Yet experience has taught me that people with chronic illnesses often have several thousand gallstones congesting the bile ducts of the liver. Some stones may have also grown in the gallbladder. By removing these stones from these organs through a series of liver flushes and maintaining a balanced diet and lifestyle, the liver and gallbladder can restore their original efficiency, and most symptoms of discomfort or disease in the body can start subsiding. You may find that any persistent allergies will lessen or disappear. Back pain will dissipate, while energy and well-being will improve. Ridding the liver bile ducts of gallstones is one of the most important and powerful procedures you can apply to improve and regain your health.
