Organ Flushing: Why You Should Try It

Organ flushing may sound intriguing but it’s more than that. It’s a secret tool you can use to cleanse your body and get healthy. Learn the secrets from Dr. Cathryn Cooper and why she uses this technique on her patients.

Ever feel puffy? Like if you expand anymore, you may explode?

Is weight loss a struggle? No matter how hard you exercise or how well you eat, the scale only moves up? How about constant bloating?

Nothing sits right in your stomach, and you feel full of toxic fluid?

Your lymphatic system may need some love. Organ flushing is a method I use personally and on my patients to help get things moving, open up energy and increase detoxification in the system.


The lymphatic system runs throughout your whole body. It plays a major role in your immune system and your body’s ability to detox. But the lymphatic system can become “blocked” or “sludgy” for a variety of reasons, and when this happens, fluids tend to accumulate, and your immune system tanks.


Let’s connect this to energy. A healthy lymphatic system has free-moving, balanced energy. I say balanced because too much or too little energy can both cause problems in the lymph.

For example, imagine a free-flowing stream. If this stream floods, there is “too much,” and the resulting excess of water can cause damage all around. Conversely, if there’s a drought or “too little,” things get clogged up, and the surroundings no longer receive vital nutrients from that same water.

Your lymphatic system works the same way. With sick lymphatic fluids, some areas become flooded and overwhelmed while others are in a drought, blocking the free flow of the lymph system.


There are many tools and techniques like dry brushing to stimulate your lymphatic system, but one that I prefer is called Organ Flushing? It sounds wild, but honestly, it’s one of the easiest techniques you can implement at home to
promote free-moving, balanced energy throughout all of the organs, and ultimately, the lymphatic


Organ flushing is mechanical stimulation (a form of energy) of specific organ reflexes on the abdomen. With the stimulation, you’re helping to balance out the floods and droughts of the organs.

If an organ is in drought or sludgy, you’re removing the blockage and promoting healthy movement. If there’s a flood, you’re moving the excess of energy or fluid into the lymphatic system, where it can be dispersed and detoxified.

How-To Get Started With Organ Flushing.

The sequence of organ flushing includes the reflexes of the kidneys, gallbladder, liver, stomach, pancreas, sigmoid colon, ileocecal valve, celiac plexus, supraumbilicus, infraumbilicus/adrenals, and lymphatic system.

Ultimately, you always end the sequence of organ flushing with the lymphatic reflex. The lymphatic reflex is located in the belly button. Once you’ve energetically stimulated all of the other organ reflexes, you’ve got things moving properly and need to “flush the toilet,” aka the lymphatic system.

I highly recommend daily organ flushing to all of my patients who have symptoms of an unbalanced lymphatic system. It’s simple, quick, and effective!

One: Find an object that will allow you to apply pressure to your abdomen – a TV remote or rolling pin work well, but you can first try using your fingertips.

Two: Get comfortable laying on a flat surface – I typically recommend to organ flush once you lay down in bed for the night.

Three: Follow the organ flushing sequence and apply pressure to each reflex. Pressure is typically applied for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until you feel the organ release.

The sequence is as follows:

  • Right Kidney
  • Gallbladder
  • Liver
  • Stomach
  • Left Kidney
  • Pancreas
  • Sigmoid Colon
  • Ileocecal Valve
  • Celiac Plexus
  • Supraumbilicus
  • Infraumbilicus/Adrenals
  • Lymphatic = Belly Button

These reflexes may be painful or feel hard to the touch as you first begin organ flushing. Start by applying slight pressure where you feel a slight bit of resistance. Then slowly increase your pressure with the idea of trying to figuratively touch your spine. Remember, this is not a “no pain, no gain” situation. Even light stimulation of the organs can make a big difference.

Try it out for a week and see how you feel. Consistency is key. It may take some time to get used to, but it’s one way to enhance your immune system without costing you a thing.
