GALLBLADDER FLUSH by Peyton Elroy - Chasin' Unicorns




At the start of the year, I told myself that I (at some point) wanted to complete a Gallbladder Flush. I had conducted research on the Gallbladder last year and found it interesting that it is not commonly mentioned in the health community. There is plenty of talk and knowledge around liver flushing, colon cleansing, gut detox, etc… yet our little Gallbladder friend is neglected.

The Gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ located under the liver. You’ll find it beneath your right rib cage. It is the structure responsible for bile storage and the breaking down of fats.

What’s Bile?

 It is a yellow/green fluid that resides in the gallbladder, made from the liver. It contains water, bile salts, bilirubin, copper, cholesterol.

 Its job requires helping digestion by breaking down fat from food, absorbing fat-soluble vitamins, and eliminating excess waste products (including dead blood cells and cholesterol).

What happens when our Gallbladder is not functioning at its best? Due to a variety of factors, one may develop Gallstones.

Gallstones are formations within the Gallbladder that resemble small colored stones that vary in size. They can be as small as peppercorn, and as large as a golf ball (or bigger). They are made of bile contents. The color(s) of the stones represent their contents and how long they have been in the body.

 Types of Gallstones:

Cholesterol - most common and are green/yellow in color. They form from excess cholesterol

Pigment - less common and are darker in color (brown or black). They contain bilirubin and are sometimes connected to liver or blood disorders

Who Typically Gets Gallstones?

  • Women more often than men
  • Those who are overweight / obese
  • People 40+ in age
  • High-fat dieters

Although these are the common contractors of Gallstones, anyone can still get them.

Peyton’s Reasoning For Doing The Flush: 

I did not have any symptoms of gallstones or any other bodily issues that would’ve pointed to needing to do the flush. I simply went along with it out of curiosity and also experimentation, as I feel it is my duty as an educator to gain as much experience as possible for sharing.

I spent a couple of months on and off reading through online forums about these flushes, as well as watching videos on TikTok and Youtube, to gain knowledge on the matter. I also talked to a few people who I knew had done it. 

Through all of the insights I decided to follow some baseline protocol procedures, but added my own flavor to it.

The bulk of the success for the flush actually comes from what you do prior to it. The main objectives are:

  • Soften any potential stones that exist so they can come out with ease
  • Clear the colon as much as possible so any existing stones can come out with ease

I did not follow a week-long cleanse prior to my flush because I wanted to see how effective my own method would be.

The only things you really need for the flush itself are:

  • Tart Cherry Juice and/or Apple Juice
  • (Ingestible) Epsom Salt
  • Olive Oil
  • Grapefruit Juice
  • Optional: Chanca Piedra


Prior to the flush, you’ll want to spend a day eating no fat and ideally no protein either. Just focus on carbs. The body will utilize the Olive Oil from the flush best if there are no other fats to work through.

 You can fast for a day or several days prior - this is up to you. I just recommend doing whatever you find necessary for clearing the body. Remember, a main focus is to empty the colon as much as possible. This is why my “diet” on the day prior consisted of:

salt water, coffee, oatmeal, papaya, apple juice



(Step by step with timetable and notes)


My goal for the day was to honestly, poop as much as possible. I implemented procedures that usually help me to do so. This includes drinking coffee and eating oatmeal. For some people, other things work better. This is just my specific success. Enemas are a great way to help move it along too.

I start the day with salt water as I know the coffee is going to deplete my salt

8:50am 4oz water + 1/4 tsp sea salt

9:05am 1/2 cup oatmeal 1/2 tsp date syrup + salt. 1 betaine HCl,  1/2 cup hot black coffee

9:10amWent to the bathroom and was able to poop

After this I gave myself about 30 minutes for my body to relax before eating again

ROUND 2: (same as before)

9:50am:  4oz water + 1/4 tsp salt

10:05am: 1/2 cup oatmeal + 1/2 tsp date syrup + salt. 1/2 cup hot black coffee

10:15 am: It worked again. Another poop

10:20am: stepper + 1 hour walk

11:30am: 1/2 cup black coffee

12:40pm: papaya (ate the entire papaya, not just this half). I had a few seeds too! I ate this as a means to help me digest anything left in my stomach. I was also just hungry and wanted to eat something that was only carbs

2:30pm: 16oz apple juice - this is meant to help soften stones, as natural malic acid is a stone softener. Apple Juice and Tart Cherry Juice are best for doing this

3:15pm: 30 minute sauna session - meant to help push water out of my system so the flush will have more “room” to work

Belly button area stomach pain - usually means my stomach didn't like it and diarrhea is coming. Also feel a little nauseous. Burped after a few minutes and felt better. Didn’t end up needing to use the bathroom

4pm: 16oz apple juice + sea salt - I wanted to have more malic acid to soften any stones. Salt was meant to replenish me after sweating so much in the sauna

8:50pm: Feeling low blood pressure, spacey, freezing cold feet. Retaining tons of water - feel fat and face is really puffy

9pm2 dates, 4oz water + 1/2 tsp salt 

Didn't want to do this as you are supposed to go into the flush somewhat fasted. I couldn’t do the flush feeling bad like this though, so I gave in to eating something. Felt better after about 10 minutes


9:50pm: Prepare 1 tsp salt, 2 tbsp epsom salt in 8oz water (didn’t take a picture)

I drank 1/2 of this mixture. I couldn’t down the whole thing. It tastes disgusting, I could see some people wanting to throw it up from it. I was not sure how my body would react to Epsom Salt anyway so I was operating cautiously. I’m glad I didn’t drink the whole thing

11:30pm: 1/2 cup olive oil 1/2 cup grapefruit juice

Drink all of this, then brush your teeth and lay down for bed on your back. You don’t have to go to sleep right away, but ideally you are in bed and not getting up for the rest of the night. Within 3 minutes I was feeling gurgles in my stomach

  • Slept on back all night because felt nauseous to sleep on side
  • Had a fever at some point, intuition says 2am, body was hot but had wild chills everywhere. Slept through it. Body naturally woke up 6am


6am: Retaining water, feel puffy

6:20am Was able to pee, tried to poop but couldn't

6:30am ½ tsp sea salt + 1 tablespoon Epsom Salt in 4oz water

AKA drank rest of salt + magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salt) solution from last night

Went back to sleep until 10am

10:05am: Urge to poop. Diarrhea but mostly just liquid water came out. Guess what else?

STONES!!!! They floated to the top of the toilet water. They are green and a few golden brown ones

10:30am: 1/2 cup black coffee, 1/2 cup oatmeal + date syrup + salt (same as yesterday)

Pooped about 4 times after this over the course of a few hours. It was liquid only with stones


The moment you have been waiting for… 

Due to the stones’ buoyancy, they were very easy to gather. Plus, the fact that my colon was clear, these came out with no issues and were just by themselves (so not mixed with poop). I felt it was very important to gather pictures (and the stones themselves) for educational purposes!

I did not expect to have any stones, yet in this one flush I eliminated atleast 150. I am completely shocked at this. I assume I have more, so will be conducting another flush sometime this month. 

As you can see, the majority of them are green. This signifies their newness. Now, due to this being my first flush, I have no idea how long these stones have been in my body. Generally they develop over the span of years, so it’s hard to measure their age.

 I was vegan for 6 years and did not intake any cholesterol through doing so. Because these appear to be cholesterol stones, I wonder if over the last year of me eating eggs again (and many of them) has contributed to the formation of these stones.

I was able to collect most of the stones, so there are not too many extra missing from the picture. Notice how there are no black stones. To me that’s a good sign, or else I would suspect the stones were very very old.


After my first trip to the toilet and elimination of stones, I felt an immediate surge of energy. It was like a small high, even though I’ve never gotten high. I can equate it to that first jolt of clarity after drinking espresso. 

The stones come out with 0 pain or discomfort. Someone who has larger stones may experience this, yet again I think larger stones would not make it that far.

I performed this cleanse with absolute ease. I did not know truly what to expect, because I had no inclination of having stones. I wanted to find out anyway. I felt confident in my research, but you can never truly know how you’ll feel until you dive into a cleanse.

I did feel concern over drinking Epsom Salts, and wondered how my body would handle it. It nearly rejected it from how strong the taste is. But I am more at peace with it now because well, it worked! Additionally, I had no other pain or discomfort associated with drinking it.

I haven’t noticed any changes since then in my digestion or any other aspect of the way my body runs. I will continue to take note of any changes that may come about, and especially after the next flush 

After realizing how easy this was to do, I encourage others to not stress so much about doing a lengthy fast prior. I think most people can get away with doing just a day of that and then hopping into the protocol (colon cleanse half day, then flush before bed). Remember, enemas are usually very helpful. If you are finding you are constipated for too long before the flush though, I would hold off. You don’t want the stones to come out of the Gallbladder but then get stuck in your colon.

 Because of how healthy and active I am, not thinking I would have stones, then finding I had a bunch… I recommend you, reader, to definitely consider doing this.
