For the last five days or so I've been producing soft yellow stools
I'v been on the net and some people say it's liver problems or
problems, even hep C. I'm only 42 years old, people say I look about

been confirmed by a doctor. I started becoming short of breath and
feeling of breathlessness when I laid down plus I was constantly
This is one of the major symptoms of congestive heart failure (my
died of CHF and my grandfather on my mother's side as well). I've
taking vit C and Lysine.
Anyway, as I was saying, for the last five days my stools have
been a sort
of mustard colour. I feel OK, or at least as well as I've always
you know what this may be?
I'm thinking of a liver cleanse. However, I don't think I could
get one cup
of olive oil down my throat with out it reversing back out again.

in case I have some organisms that need dealing with.
Mike, on the one hand. you say you are feeling ok and on the other
are short of breath. Do you have CHF? If so you should be taking CQ1O
60mg 2 to 3 times a day and B complex- 50 2 times with a 100mg B6
once a day along with the Vitamin C etc.
About Hep C is treatable with massive doses of Vitamin C see:
The liver cleanse is not as bad a you think I have done it 4 times
unlike my wife I found the grapefruit and olive tasty. The Kidney
should be done first though.
The yellow stool usually indicates bile release other than you
what you say.
I have redirected your email to Turf maybe he can help with his
knowledge on herbs and other alternatives.
Mike not sure if saw this response from turf?
There could be an illness producing these effects but yellow stools
typically mean too little bile output. I would take the B vitamins
as Chris says (and CoQ10's a good supplement for a variety of purposes)
and also ensure other nutrients for the heart, especially selenium
(get 70-200mcg from a multivitamin) and magnesium (get at least 100%
RDA from a multimineral like Solaray Cal-Mag Citrate). Plus, drink
plenty of water.
For the liver, magnesium and B vitamins are important but I would
add a liver cleanser like FutureBiotics Silymarin Plus. Taking this
supplement for a few weeks, and using a
tablespoon of olive oil before bed each night, while also getting
adequate B vitamins and magnesium, is about as effective as a liver
" I'm thinking of a liver cleanse. However, I don't think

Mixed with the lemon and/or grapefruit juice it is not really that
bad but even if this was being considered, I would first do a regimen
as above for the liver for a couple of weeks before doing a flush.
BTW, I suspect that using high dose vitamin C can deplete minerals
in the body. Being short on calcium and especially magnesium can
cause shortness of breath.
Take it on an empty stomach or make sure you don't mix starches beforehand.
Peppermint tea is a must when taking the "purge" of eliminating
mucus from the lungs through vomiting using lobelia. You can also
take it as peppermint oil in capsule form for IBS. It relaxes the
intestinal smooth muscle thus eliminating any pain.
according to Willix.
This may be true but not for all people certain metabolic types will
not react to calcium well but be fine with magnesium and vise versa.
Moral of the story: Know your metabolic type before following advice!
Peppermint tea beforehand will help keep it down. Also WaterOz water
soluble minerals go directly to the cells in 20 minutes or less. Works
same as juices.
Thanks Tracy, but be warned some people like myself get heart burn
peppermint tea etc.
"I have developed an on again off again
dull ache on the left side of my abdomen. By no means excruciating
but still, not good. What side is your gallbladder on? Is it the right
side? If so I may have a partly blocked gallbladder. Can a liver cleans
The liver and gallbladder are on the right.
The typical reasons people get an ache on the left side is from
the stomach pressing against the intestines blocking their flow,
but can also be caused in the large intestine at the bend where
it heads down to the lower colon.
Another possibility is a swollen spleen, but I think this is rare.
I would drink plenty of water, eat plenty of non-starchy vegetables,
get adequate oil in the diet (a tablespoon
of olive oil before bed) use high dose vitamin C (at least a teaspoon
before bed) and magnesium (400-1000mg before bed) for a week and
see if it helps. If not, I would use
enzymes (RenewLife Digestmore) with each meal and perhaps an intestinal
cleanser before bed short term - don't use laxatives long term.
A liver flush would also be appropriate since it cleans out the
intestines so well. If the flush yields no pain for a few days and
the ache returns when the colon starts getting backed up again,
this is the problem.
