Lovely Lemon Liver Cleanse


Below are 3 different lemon liver cleanse recipes that are designed to help the liver, gallbladder and bowel movements. Begin with recipe number 1 and proceed to the more advanced recipes, making adjustments for your own body as you go.

#1 Beginning Lemon Oil Cleanse

1 whole organic lemon, juiced

1 cup warm water

1 tablespoon honey (optional)

1 tablespoon olive oil

Blend together the lemon juice, warm water, olive oil and honey if you prefer it sweet.


If you have trouble digesting fats, or suspect gallbladder problems then sip 1/4 cup of the beverage on an empty stomach. Slowly increase the amount of the drink each day until you're consuming the whole drink at one time.


If you have no trouble with your gallbladder and don't have trouble digesting fats then you can drink the whole beverage on an empty stomach right away.


An empty stomach means 2 hours after dinner or first thing in the morning when you haven't eaten all night. The acid in the lemon triggers peristalsis which is the massaging action to create a strong bowel movement. The oil triggers a flow of bile through the gallbladder to clean out the gallbladder, encourage bile flow and create a strong bowel movement.


When you get a large clean bowel movement then you know the drink is working. If you drink the whole beverage and you're still not getting a good strong bowel movement then proceed to recipe #2 -


#2 - Increasing Bile Flow Lemon Oil Cleanse

1 whole organic lemon, juiced

1 cup warm water

1 tablespoon honey (optional)

2-4 tablespoons olive oil


Some people simply need more oil in the drink to trigger a good flow of bile. This good flow of bile cleans out the gallbladder and the intestines while helping to remove cholesterol and toxins from the liver.


Slowly increase the amount of oil - if 1 tablespoon didn't help your bowels move then increase to 2 tablespoons tomorrow, 3 the next day and up to 4 tablespoons of oil in the drink.


#3 - Advanced Lemon Oil Cleanse

1 whole lemon - do not juice - slice and keep the lemon skin intact, removing seeds

1 cup warm water

1 tablespoon honey (optional)

2-4 tablespoons olive oil


Combine all ingredients and blend well - the lemon skin will make it thick. Drink the whole beverage at one time for more liver gallbladder and intestinal cleansing. For a lemon with very thick skin you can remove part of the skin and keep part of the skin.


*Warning – if you have gallbladder problems then seek nutritional support before adding extra oil.
