The SAD food program being consumed is seriously beginning to affect our children. Health issues that used to be reserved for the middle aged are creeping into the preteen child.
The question has now been posed. How young is too young to liver flush?
My answer is given along with a caution to remember that a child is to be handled with loving care. Liver Flushing is a powerful healing tool but at the same time not the most pleasant of experiences. When dealing with an immature mind that is unable to grasp the concepts involved it is best to make cleansing a party event. The child will drink most anything if presented in the right way. Make cleansing fun, do it with the child taking pains to keep the mood light and happy.
A child off the breast eating solid food can be flushed. Unless there are physical issues requiring attention such as hives, for example, flushing a child this young is not something I would suggest.
Regular cleansing and liver flushing can begin when the child is between 2 and 4 years old. Again I caution don’t overdo the cleansing on a small child. Maybe, once a year have a liver cleansing party for the whole family, (and friends, these are truly special people).
The instructions for doing an ELF are in our Liver-flushing E-Book and available on Video in our Members area. Here are a few suggestions for E.L.F.ing a child.
The only precondition for doing any type of Liver Flushing is THE BOWELS MUST BE OPEN and working well. If necessary do an enema on the child.
Start out light. A small child of 2 years would use around 2 oz of Olive oil and 2 oz Grapefruit juice. This would equate to the adult dose of 8 oz Olive oil and 8 oz Grapefruit juice.
The first flush on such a little system might be better done with 1 oz or 1.5 oz of oil with the juice. If the issue is serious enough to need to flush such a little person the flushing will likely need to be repeated. Start out with the smaller amount and see how the child responds to the work being done.
For the older child around 50 pounds give 1/3 the adult dose. Normally round the weight to the nearest 25 pound mark for easier dosing. The adult weight is set at 150 pounds. A child of 75 lbs. would receive half the adult dose, or 4 ounces of olive oil in 4 oz grapefruit juice.
This rule can be applied, when dosing children, to all the herbal supports.
The child will look to the adult’s reaction when deciding how acceptable something, if the adults will keep a happy expression making a game out of it the child will go along easily.
