The Gallbladder Flush

Cleanse the body, improve energy, regain vitality

Join one of the World's leading Naturopath's, Helen Padarin, as she mentors you to completely transform your health - and your life - in this online health program for 'Padarin Health'.

This course is closed for enrollment.

"Hi I'm Gabby and I'm your Gallbladder.

I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want.

To feel clean, energetic and vibrant again.

I'm going to work with my friends Helen and the Well Embodied team to make sure I can achieve these goals. But I must have your support!

Let's do The Gallbladder Flush together!"

This isn’t your standard cleanse.

And it's as much about what comes 'out' of us as what goes 'into' us. (If you can pick up what we're putting down here?!)

Liver and bile duct congestion sets the stage for production of gall stones and potentially more serious, seemingly unrelated, conditions, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

Most adults living in the industrialised world, and especially those suffering a chronic illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, or diabetes, have an accumulation of gall sludge - kind of like sand really, that, if left to settle can turn into gallstones (mainly tiny crystals that escape detection for they are invisible to x-rays, ultrasound, and CT scans) blocking the bile ducts of their liver.

This online program - The Gallbladder Flush - led by one of the world's most passionate Gut and Auto-Immune health guru's, Helen Padarin, will give us a thorough understanding of the gallbladder and its complex functions, what causes gallstones in gallbladder, and why these stones are related to so many of the most common chronic diseases prevalent in the world today.

Also and most importantly, what we can do about it!

The gallbladder flush has led to incredible improvements in health and wellness for so many.

Flushing your gallbladder can add years to your life, reverse or slow down the ageing process and support the healing of your body on a deeper level than you ever thought possible.

Many people who have done a series of these flushes see remarkable changes in all areas of their health, some even being healed of stubborn illnesses that they lived with for years.

See, the health of the Western World ain't what it's meant to be. And unfortunately feeling flat and being medicated has become the default of so many.

It’s no wonder that we are experiencing an epidemic of compromised immunity, illness and obesity. Our toxin exposure and overload has never been higher and we’ve come to think of a weak constitution and immune system as normal (SPOILER ALERT: it’s not!).

Our bodies are carrying excess weight, our skin is suffering, the rate of auto-immune disease has never been higher in history, we are more medicated than ever before, and we lack the confidence to show our best selves to the world. (This is before we even touch on what this lack of health is actually doing to our mental health and cognitive state)

Over the years, Helen has worked tirelessly and helped thousands of people to change the way they approach health, and seen the huge impact that simple changes can have in their bodies - and beyond!

Often her patients have the right motivation and just need a little more information on how to actually take those first few steps.

She wanted to create a program that could reach more people and empower them to get started in the right direction.

So she did.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the meals in 9V9 support a ketogenic diet?
All of our recipes are focused on low carbohydrate, higher fat and super-anti-oxidants through vegetables. Fat we use include coconut oil, sesame oil, avo, nuts, seeds and ethically sourced, biodynamic animals fats (or can be easily vegan modified. In fact, if you currently do keto with high meat and dairy, these recipes will actually create a more optimum nutrition for you.
Can I do the gallbladder flush while pregnant?
Pregnancy or breastfeeding is a time of nourishing and not the best for cleansing. So we recommend you join us for the prep and the 9V9 Veggie Challenge and then do the Flush at a later stage.
What does the prep month include? Is it hard?
Super easy peasy and amazing. We are going to be adding a super simple drink to our lives each day, steering clear of inflammatory substances and really setting the gallbladder up to rid itself of sludge. (think: softening gallstones). Of course the prep month also includes the AMAZING 9V9 program where we will be working with you to pack 9 cups of veg a day for 9 days into your life. (Easier than you think!)
Can I do The Gallbladder Flush if I have no gallbladder.
YES! Go figure huh? The reason is that the flush actually works on our liver also, and the liver is where gall-stone formation actually starts. Come join us!
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like. When we run The Gallbladder Flush or 9V9 challenge again, we are going to give you a big shout-out so that you can prepare and get ready to rock it with us again or even challenge your flatmate, friends, family or colleagues to complete 9V9 themselves!
Are all ingredients accessible anywhere?
You will be able to buy vegetables from either the local farmers market, your vegetable supplier, the supermarket or from a delivery company, depending on what suits you. Organic vegetables are ideal so please buy these if you are able to.

CHECK LIST TO FLUSH - Ask yourself these questions and make sure you fit the requirements.

  • I am 18 years of age or older
  • I agree not to partake in the weekend flush if I have an acute illness at the time such as a cold, flu, or other infection that is associated with fever (ok in chronic infections such as thrush / candidiasis or skin infections that are not accompanied with fever).
  • I have not had any chemotherapy in the last 8 months
  • I do not have small bowel obstruction
  • I am not feeling weak or emaciated or underweight (If you are any of these, focus first on rebuilding your strength and stamina before attempting a flush)
  • I do not have active inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, diverticulosis, numerous polyps or large haemorrhoids. If you have any of these conditions, address them with your health practitioner first, wait until you are in remission, off medication and in a stable state before attempting a flush
  • I agree not to partake in the flush if I am experiencing strong abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting, have frequent diarrhoea or blood in my stools.
  • I agree to keep myself well hydrated in the lead up to the flush and during the flush by consuming 2L of good quality water daily (herbal teas are counted in water intake).
  • If I am currently constipated, I agree to get support during the preparation month with a health care practitioner (a nutritionist or naturopath would be ideal) to address this so that I have complete daily bowel motions by the time it comes to do the flush.
  • I do not have a stent in my bile duct
  • I am not pregnant or breast feeding.
  • I am not recovering from recent surgery
  • I am not relying on regular use of pain killers (these can interfere with liver function – so first work with your health care practitioner to address the pain, then once off painkillers, do the cleanse)
  • Am not taking prescription medication (apart from Thyroid Hormone or other hormone replacement therapy, including the oral contraceptive pill). If you are on prescription medication, it is important to review with your health care practitioner and PadarinHealth naturopath Pip Smith before completing the flush. The preparation period however will be very beneficial.
