For example, when I reviewed the various body parts associated with the gallbladder meridian, I recognized several of my physical symptoms that had lingered over the years and come back after previous detoxes that I had not associated with my gallbladder, including sinusitis, on and off hip pain, acne/moles above my shoulder blade, and menstrual cramps (which improved with acupuncture on my gallbladder meridian).
I do not think that a liver and gallbladder flush is the best alternative healing therapy for everyone. There might be another therapy more effective at bringing balance to the body, there might be some emotional work that needs to be done first in order to facilitate the physical release of the stones and toxins, or there might be a certain amount of cleansing/strengthening of other organs that need to happen first, to minimize detox symptom associated with a flush.

Tips on A Successful Liver & Gallbladder Flush
There are many different variations on how to do a liver gallbladder flush, but the main objectives remain the same.
Objective 1: Increase bile flow production
This is usually accomplished by ingesting herbs for liver & gallbladder (e.g. milk thistle, dandelion root, etc.) up to 2 weeks before the actual flush. The raw food diet (especially apples, beets, ginger, greens) used before and during the flush also contribute towards this objective.
Objective 2: Detoxify the bowels
Since many accumulated toxins will be stirred up and trying to make their way out your body, it's important that your bowels are moving properly before and during the flush so that "exit door" is completely open. This can be done several ways by working with enemas, colonics, etc., but I prefer to use the raw food diet to reactive proper bowel function and herbal botanical formulas to cleanse the bowels before and after a flush. However, if there's significant detox symptoms after a flush (e.g. fatigue, weakness, vomiting, etc.) then an enema or colonic can be helpful in assisting the body in purging toxins.
Objective 3: Soften existing stones
This is usually accomplished by drinking apple juice before the flush as the malic acid in the apple juice has a softening effect. There are other supplements (e.g. malic alic supplements, chanca piedra, etc.) that help soften stones and make them easier to expel but I prefer to work with Phosfood Liquid for this objective, which has been shown to be very effective for softening all sorts of calcifications in the body include gallstones, kidney stones, and bone spurs.
Objective 4: Trigger the liver and gallbladder to expel stones
This is usually accomplished by drinking a combination of olive oil and fruit juice. I prefer grapefruit to lemon juice as it tastes better but I've also read that grapefruit juice is ideal for gallbladder cleansing because it contains limonoid, a substance that dissolves gallstones.
Objective 5: Facilitate an easy release of the stones
Lying on your right side and resting after ingesting the olive oil/grapefruit mixture allows the stones to be released more easily from the body. Other methods that some people use to relax the bile ducts are consuming epsom salts and using castor oil packs over the liver after you lie down for the evening.
Whatever flush protocol you decide on, make sure it's accomplishing the above objective. Instructions for the liver & gallbladder flush that I followed and that I believe is good for someone new to flushing is at the bottom of the post.
A Daily Journal of My Recent Liver & Gallbladder Flush
Day 1: I added Phosfood Liquid to my cold pressed apple juice from Whole Foods and made raw tacos for lunch with taco nut "meat" made from walnuts and tortilla chips and had berries for dinner. Yes, the tortilla chips meant I wasn't 100% raw, but I was 100% happy during my cleanse. :) I took the rest of my herbs for my colon and liver throughout the day. After the berries, my body was literally buzzing with energy, which happens often when I switch from an omnivore diet to a raw foods diet.
