Week 3 of 4 of Full Detox Programme

Liver and Gallbladder cleansing: Week Three of Four 
Our livers have over five hundred different functions: storing certain vitamins, minerals, and sugars; controlling both the production and excretion of cholesterol; creating the thousands of enzymes; metabolizes proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and processes hemoglobin in the blood, etc.
The gallbladder secretes a green-coloured substance called bile to help break down fat and stimulate
contractions of the intestines to push waste matter out of bowels.
Gallstones are solid pieces of crystalline material that form when the gallbladder does not secrete adequate bile over time. They range in size from a grain of sand to a golf ball and are made up of fats, cholesterol, bile pigments, and minerals in bile. About 80 percent of all gallstones are made of cholesterol and are typically white or yellowish-coloured. Other stones are darker and are made up of calcium salts and an orange-yellow waste product in the body called bilirubin.
I'm planning to do a separate programme to cleanse the gallstones and will write about it when I start it.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about the liver is its ability to regenerate itself. When it is given the critical nutrients, a healthy non-stressful diet, and herbs to help it function, it can be restored to health in most circumstances, is said in the book.
