Certainly, people with chronic fatigue respond very well to liver flushing, not surprising given the role the liver plays in cell metabolism and detoxification.
This is the section in the new edition of The Amazing Liver Cleanse that deals with Gold Coin Grass:
Intolerance to Apple Juice
If you cannot tolerate apple juice (or apples) for some reason, you may substitute the following herbs: Gold Coin Grass and Bupleurum. The herbs are made into a tincture and sold as Gold Coin Grass (GCG), 250 ml or 8.5 oz, for US$16.00. It is made available by Prime Health Products (see Suppliers List at the end of the book).
Malic acid in apple juice does exceptionally well in dissolving some of the stagnant bile and making the stones softer (see details on malic acid below). The aforementioned herbs are also effective in softening gallstones and, therefore, can be used as a preparatory step for the liver flush, although it may take a little longer than with using apple juice. The proper dosage for the tincture is 1 tablespoonful (about 15 ml) once daily on an empty stomach, about 30 minutes before breakfast. This regimen should be kept for 8-9 days prior to the actual day of the liver flush.
You Suffer from Gallbladder Disease or Don’t Have A Gallbladder
If you suffer from gallbladder disease or your gallbladder has already been removed, you may need to take Gold Coin Grass for 2-3 weeks (approximately 1 bottle supply) prior to liver cleansing. For details, see the previous section.
People Who Should Not Use Apple Juice
There are people who may have difficulty drinking apple juice in the large amounts required for the liver cleanse, but are not aware of it. These include people suffering from diabetes, hypoglycemia, yeast infection (Candida), cancer and stomach ulcers.
In such cases, apple juice can be replaced with malic acid in capsule or powder form. The preparation period is the same as for taking apple juice, except that the 1 liter of apple juice per day are replaced by 1500 –2000mg of malic acid taken with 2 glasses of warm water. Drink this solution in small amounts throughout the day. Another alternative is to use the same instructions as for those who are intolerant to apple juice. You may try the malic acid during one cleanse and the Gold Coin Grass during another cleanse, and see which one works best for you. Food grade malic acid powder (not mixed with magnesium or other ingredients) is very inexpensive and can be purchased through the Internet or from some natural health food stores (see Suppliers List).
