I want to do the liver detox from the GTD book and my mother in law is curious about it as well. She is wondering if she can do it since she doesn't have a gallbladder. I assume the answer is yes but wanted to check. Also other than this are there any other types of detoxes we could try?

I would not stir up to many issues just now, find out what is going on then go back to the other post and  let us know..

My thinking is that if anything (including your mind) is bothering you from the radiation cloud, then just up your iodine for now.. use the patch test to show you how much is needed.

How would I do the colon and kidney cleanse? Other than eating well? The reason I want to do this so badly is more for my in laws. They used to be on a store bought cleanse (something you drink I'm guessing) and said they felt so much better. They won't do the diet but I'm trying to convince. She has fibromyalgia and he has arthritis and emphazema and I worry about them so anything I can get them to agree to would be great.

There are a bunch of different kinds of liver flush "recipes" floating around the internet.

The harsher ones reccomend doing other cleanses first. Dr D's "Explorer Liver Flush" is much gentler, and doesn't require doing any colon or kidney cleanses  first.

However, that flush is specifically designed for Explorers, and is based on using the malic acid from apple juice to soften gallstones. Apple juice is a diamond for Explorers in the GTD book, and is likely to be at least neutral for all Explorers who get a SWAMI. However, apples are an avoid for O non-secretors, and its value for O nonnie Hunters and Gatherers can vary. It's an avoid for me, so I really can't do this particular flush.

Since bile is made in the liver and stored in the gallbladder (when you have one) the liver flush still works for people without gallbladders.

What kind of cleanse could I get for them then? If I had to guess she is a gatherer nonnie and he a hunter so I probably shouldn't use the exolorer cleanse
