A Homeopathic and Nutritional Approach

by Dr. Alva Irish
 an actual case history

Margaret, aged 36, had suffered from uncontrollable Diabetes since age 5. When Homeopath/Naturopath, Alva Irish examined Margaret, who also had Vitiligo, and blindness caused from hemorrhage in her eyes, she was shocked to see the severity of her illness.

Margaret was extremely ill, with little or no activity in her pancreas, she had developed ascites from a poisoned liver, and blood clots inside her eyes, which left her almost completely blind.

Her allopathic physician told her he would have to operate to remove the blood clots. She was weak, and uncoordinated, and had let her mail pile up in boxes for months because she couldn't read it. She also, of course, had to quit driving her car.

According to Dr. Irish, who has successfully researched hundreds of cases involving sugar imbalance, the problem itself is not simply a case of a genetic disease, it is, in fact, a disease caused by stress, and poisoning of the body's eliminative organs.

The pre-destined WEAKNESS of the pancreas, may indeed, have been genetic, but the Diabetes is almost always curable.

Dr.Irish pointed out to Margaret that because the liver stored poisons, including those from her own body, its filtering abilities were probably drastically impaired by them, and so undoubtedly caused an even more severe poisoning to occur. A complete workup was done, first thing, to determines the cause of Margaret's imbalances,and to see which organs were involved.

The first thing on the agenda, was to look after the functioning of the liver and the pancreas. Dr. Irish suggested that if she were Margaret, she would immediately start taking Sylimarin (Milk Thistle extract)

300mg three times a day for 4 months, take a rest from the Sylimarin for 4 months, and repeat the Sylimarin regimen for another 4 months. Sylimarin is medically proven to RE-GENERATE the liver, and eliminate all of the poisons.

It also has the Medically proven ability to completely heal Cirrhosis of the liver, which is also caused by poisons. (Diabetics, with their sugar metabolism impaired, often have a yeast overgrowth, which generates alcohol INSIDE the body, without them ever taking a drink!) which effectively destroys the Liver and CAUSES Cirrhosis! Dr. Irish also told Margaret to take SAMe daily for 60 days.

Dr. Irish also told Margaret to go through the Liver Cleanse regimen once a month.

**See Liver cleanse below

For the bleeding and Diabetic symptoms, Dr. Irish pointed out that Phosphorous, a Homeopathic remedy Historically used to eliminate Fatty Degeneration of both the Heart and Liver,and Bleeding internally of the eye, in a 6C potency, 3 times a day for 3 days, then Phosphorous 200C, one dose a week for 4 weeks.

Also, Phosphoric acid 1m, one dose every 3 months for 1 year. Monilla Albicans 30C one dose daily for one week, then the same remedy in a 12C potency, one dose daily for one week, then the same remedy in a 6C potency, one dose daily for one week., for the resultant yeast. Syzygium Jambolanum 3X, alcohol tincture, 10 drops daily (60ml bottle) until gone for Diabetic condition.

Arsenicum Bromatum 12X, alcohol tincture, (60 ml bottle) 10 drops 3 times a day until gone, for kidney weakness, Bright's disease, and kidney involvement in the Diabetic process.( Also will lower high blood pressure caused by kidney involvement from Diabetic poisoning.)

Gymnema Sylvestre in an Herbal capsular form, one capsule three times daily.

Gymnema Sylvestre has been medically proven to REGENERATE a damaged pancreas. Yes, this herb CURES Diabetes!

Vanadyl sulfate, one 10 mg capsule 4 times daily.

and Chromium Piccolinate

Dr. Irish also told Margaret about Vitamin E with Selenium, D-Alpha Tocopherol, to strengthen the Diabetic heart, along with CoQ10, and Ester C.

When Margaret did a follow up visit with her Allopathic Physician, he told her that the spots on her head were from yeast, and looked like they were going away with the Homeopathic treatments. Her right eye completely cleared up of all blood clots, and just a small amount remained in her left eye. She can now drive, and is busy reading all of her piled up mail. Her exhaustion has disappeared, and her ascities is gone. Her blood sugar is dropping daily, and is almost normal.

Margaret has been warned to watch her blood sugar carefully, as the Gymnema/Sylimarin combination will surely regenerate her pancreas and liver, and she was also told to watch her blood pressure medication, and her diabetic medication carefully, as she would need less and less of her medications.

Margaret has not needed to take her Diabetic medication for several weeks, now, and her blood pressure medication has been lowered. Margaret was also shown a list of cleansing baths to take, in her detoxifying regimen.

Dr. Irish is confident that Margaret will continue to improve, and her eyes will completely heal.

**Liver Cleanse Regimen:

Cleansing the liver bile ducts is the most powerful procedure you can undertake in order to improve your body's health. A liver cleanse should be done twice a year if possible. Ideally, it should be part of a semi-annual kidney/liver/parasite cleanse the sequence of which enhances the overall results.

Amalgam fillings surely destroy your Liver. You wouldn't suck on a Thermometer would you? Well, if you have silver amalgam fillings in your mouth, that is exactly what you are doing. Silver amalgam is silver mixed with Quicksilver, or mercury!!!

So do any dental work first, if possible.

Your mouth should be metal free and bacteria free and all cavitations should have been cleaned. A toxic mouth can put a heavy load on the liver, burdening it immediately after cleansing. Eliminate any tooth problem first for best results.

Dr. Hulda Clark maintains that you can't clean a liver with living parasites in it and that you won't get as many stones out, and you may feel quite sick. While this is Dr. Clark’s recommendation, it is to me an " ideal" situation. We have seen many copious stone discharges without the kidney cleanse or parasite cleanse prior to the liver cleanse. There are few good parasite programs.

Some are:

The procedure:

Drink fresh, organic un-pasteurized apple juice for three days preceding the liver cleanse.
For these three days, eat frugally (little) if you must and then only small amounts of raw unprocessed fruit and/or vegetable salads, but every day take at least one full quart of high quality unfiltered (you should be able to see the sediments on the bottom of the container) preferable home-made apple juice.
The pectin in the apple juice helps to soften and flatten the stones in the gall bladder and liver.
This will also help their passage through the bile ducts.
This semi-fast also empties the intestines of their food content and makes the collection of stones less problematic. Use a good juicer and make up 20-30 pounds of apples into juice and refrigerate.
If sugar from the juice in relationship to Candida is a problem I believe that doing this cleanse is senior to candida worries - for three to four days - as it helps rid the body of parasites.
Candida is a parasite as well. Diabetics or severe reactions from this cleanse need special guidance from a professional nutritionist.

Liver cleanse ingredients:
Epsom salts 4 tablespoons (not less !!!)
Olive oil 3/4 of a cup (light olive oil is easier to get down, use only the best cold pressed virgin oil)
Fresh grapefruit and lemons.
Do not use concentrate or store-bought juice. M
ake your own.
Enough to squeeze 1/4 cup of lemon and 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice.
Ornithine 4 to 8 tablets, and Melatonin tablets 4 , to be sure you can sleep.

Suitable jar with non-metallic lid.

Shake your mixture well and gulp it down 1/2 cup of lemon/grapefruit juice. Use a couple of ounces of this juice each time to help get down the Epsom salt solution (four feedings).

*Instructions below to make solutions.

Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse so that you can rest the next day.

Take no medicines, vitamins or other pills that you can do without. They could hinder success of the cleanse. Stop any parasite cleanse the day before. Eat a no-fat fruit breakfast and light fat-free lunch such as cooked cereals with fruit but no butter or milk. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.

2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink after 2:00 o'clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tablespoons in 3 cups of water and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings, 3/4 cup each. Place the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only). If you are familiar with the procedure, take an enema before 4:00 PM with distilled (not chlorinated) warm water mixed with 1 tablespoon of instant caffinated (regular) coffee to clean out your large intestines of any unwanted fecal matter, and to raise your glutathione levels by 700%. The cleaner your intestines are the easier it will be for the stones to be eliminated. Besides, if you want to see just what you will be eliminating it is more appetizing to look only for stones and not be turned off by other smelly stuff.

6:00 PM. Drink one serving (3/4 cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts water. If you did not prepare this potion ahead of time (at 2:00 PM), mix 1 tablespoon in 3/4 cup of water now. You may add 1/8 teaspoon of Ester C powder to improve the taste.

You can certainly drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil and grapefruit out to warm up.

8:00 PM. Repeat the above by drinking another 3/4 cup of Epsom salts water. You have not eaten since two o'clock, but you won't feel hungry.

Get your bedtime chores done now. Switch your telephone to your answering machine and be prepared to stay by yourself for the balance of the evening. The timing of the actual cleanse is critical to achieve success. Do not be more than 10 minutes early or late for anything that follows next.

9:45 PM. Pour 3/4 cup (measured cup) of your high quality olive oil into the pint jar. Pour the prepared 3/4 cup of squeezed grapefruit and lemon juice into the measuring cup adding this to the oil. Close the jar tightly with its lid and shake briskly until well mixed, almost watery. Only fresh squeezed juice will do this.

Now visit the bathroom one or more times, even if this makes you slightly late for your ten o'clock drink. Be ready to go to bed and STAY in bed.

Don't clean up the kitchen. Do it the next day.

10:00 PM. Take the solution to your bedside if you want but drink it standing up. Drink the potion you have mixed. If you have them, take 4 Ornithine and 4 Melatonin capsules with the first sips to make sure you will sleep through the night.

Drinking through a large plastic straw might help it go down easier. Get all of it down within five minutes or less (less than fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).

Lie down immediately. The sooner you lie down, otherwise gravity can invite too fast a transition of the Epsom salts liquids, the more stones you will get out. Put your knees up to your chest in a fetal position. Lie on your right side for at least half an hour. The oil will go to your gallbladder and liver. These organs will not know what to do with all that oil, so they will spasm and throw off all the available bile plus stones, gravel and crystals.

After half an hour you may turn on your back with a good thick feather pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Think loving thoughts - your liver is sensitive and responsive to feelings of resentment, vindictiveness and hate. Try to keep perfectly still for about half an hour or at least 20 minutes. Visualize the cleansing action taking place. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is little likelihood of pain because the bile duct valves are open (thanks to the Epsom salts). Relax and go to sleep. Let nature do her thing. Tomorrow you will be cleaner, much cleaner and also healthier than before.

Next morning (early): Upon wakening, take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea (highly unlikely), wait until this is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. Don't take this potion before 6:00AM. It would be best if you don't get up and have someone else give you this potion. This drink will act as a mild laxative and provoke a later bowel movement.

2 hours later. Take you fourth (the last one - Yipee!) dose of Epsom salts. Drink 3/4 cup of the mixture. You may go back to bed if you like.

After 2 more hours you may get up and take something into your empty stomach. Start with some fresh-made fruit juice. Half an hour later, eat Some fruit.

One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light and natural. By supper of the next day (Monday) you should feel fully recovered and ready to slay a dragon.

How well did you do?

Expect diarrhea in the morning of the second day (Sunday). The ideal way to see what you are actually eliminating is to defecate into a white porcelain bowl or large white plastic bucket.

The bowl or bucket is used to also see the reddish crystals which collect at the bottom of the bowl (the stones float on top) and those crystals would ordinarily be lost somewhere at the bottomless hole in the toilet and you would have missed them.

The alternative is to use the toilet and look into it for the stones with a flashlight. Look for the greenish kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones and not food residue. Only bile from the liver is green. The bowel movement (if there is any) sinks but gall and liver stones float because of the cholesterol inside. Count them roughly, whether tan or green. You may have to eliminate up to 2000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies or bursitis or upper back pain permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days but as the stones from the rear of the liver travel forward they might give you the same symptoms again. You may repeat this gallbladder/liver cleanse at two-week intervals until no more stones come out. Never cleanse when you are ill.

Sometimes, the bile ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones. They appear as a "chaff" floating on top of the toilet bowl water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of tiny white crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging stones.

We don't know what is the identity of the reddish heavy small crystals that collect at the bottom of the bowl.

How safe is the liver cleanse? It is very safe. Dr. Clark's opinion is based on over 500 cases, including many persons in their seventies and eighties. None went to the hospital; none even reported pain. However, it can make you feel quite ill for a one or two days afterwards, although in every one of these cases the maintenance parasite program had been neglected.

This is why the instructions direct you to ideally complete the parasite programs first.


The above procedure contradicts many modern medical viewpoints. Gallstones are thought to be few, not thousands. They don't get linked to pains other than gall bladder attacks.

It is easy to understand why this is thought:

By the time you have acute pain attacks, some stones are in the gallbladder, are big enough and sufficiently calcified to be seen on X-ray, and they have caused inflammation there. When the gall bladder is removed, the acute pain attack is gone but bursitis and other pains and digestive problems remain and get worse. Stones are not thought to reside in the liver. If the liver is operated upon only the biggest and worst offenders can be removed - yet uncountable stones and gravel and crystals remain in the already clogged liver which has not improved at all.

People who have their gallbladder surgically removed still eliminate plenty of green, bile-coated stones with our liver cleanse and anyone who cares to dissect their stones can see that the concentric circles and crystals of cholesterol match textbook pictures of "gallstones" exactly.


If you feel waves of pain reaching up to your throat, you probably have a gallstone stuck in a bile duct (clay-colored stool is evidence of bile duct blockage). Epsom salts can relax that bile duct in 20 minutes.

Take a tablespoon in 3/4 cup of water but only on an empty stomach or you may feel quite ill. Taking a large dose of valerian herb (6 to 8 capsules four times a day including bedtime) may also buy you a little time by relaxing the duct.

If you do get relief, you can be sure it was a spasm of the bile duct system. The magnesium in the Epsom salts relaxes spasms. It would be best to clean the liver a number of times (at two week intervals unless too ill) to try to dislodge the sticking gallstone. Usually it is recommended to kill parasites and cleanse the kidneys first.

A quick word about parasites. Infested humans, pets coupled with international travel, help spread parasites. They are much more predominant then in early non airplane days.

To obtain permanent liver health, one should control the intake of high fat foods such as ice cream, potato chips, salad dressings, cheese, butter (excess), cream and exorbitant amounts of milk (more than 1 glass a day, if any). Feelings of resentment, vindictiveness, belligerence and hate are destructive to liver health.

Avoid these at all cost!!! Forget the "bad things" others have done to you.
