It is interesting that you note the importance of good bile flow. I have been "sick" for the last 2-3 years. I went out to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale AZ about 18 months ago for about a week and saw a ton of doctors out there. It cost 5-6 grand. It is one of the things that turned me off to "regular" doctors. I was suffering from bad allergies at the time (especially mold) and even brought out my previous allergy test results that showed I had bad allergies but because I didn't have one of the 2 classic allergy symptoms (nasal problems/discharge and chest congestion) the allergy doctor told me I was imagining everything. My allergy symptoms are atypical but very real. It was incredible. I almost told him off and I just about stormed out of his office. Anyway, the only intersting thing they found was when they did a endoscopy. They snaked a tube/camera down my throat into my stomach and found that I had an "abnormal" amount of bile pooled in my stomach. Because you have to fast for at least 12 hours for these tests it shouldn't have been there. This was one of the reasons that I initially was drawn to the liver flush. Anyway, I am convinced that all of my problems stem from several aspirin regiments I was on. After the last one I had black stools for three days. This means that I was bleeding high enough up in the intestinal tract that the blood had been digested. I very well could have torn holes somewhere in my intestinal tract. I have been diagnosed with leaky gut syndrome but I am undergoing more tests to see if that is right. I know I probably fried a lot of the good bacteria/flora in my intestinal tract. I certainly upset the balance. The fact that I have no movement in my colon or intestines could mean a partial blockage or twisting of the colon or intestine. Anyway, I have a lot of the classic symptoms of liver distress that the flush is supposed to cure - allergies, fatigue, terrible anxiety etc. From what I have read 75-80% of your immune system is in your intestines. My immune system is certainly suppressed right now, and I think it is an intestinal issue, not a liver one. I think that my liver is having to deal with a lot of excess stress because of my other problems, but I have sort turned away from the notion that flushing is going to get rid of all of my problems. If you have any thoughts on why you think I could have a lot of bile pooling in my stomach I would love to hear it.
