[NAY]  I have been having more gall bladder attacks lately and found this site and thought why not. Well, I took a couple ounces of ACV mixed with apple juice and nothing. Did it again about a half hour later and still nothing. I did read elsewhere that these attacks can be caused by at least two different things, gall stones getting stuck and the total release of the bile stored there such that the harden bladder irritates itself. I don't see how the ACV can help so quickly in either case really, but maybe it only handles one of them and I had the other. It was worth a shot.

A little update for you. I wound up having my gall bladder removed the other day and the surgeon said it was about dead. That may explain why ACV didn't help in the slightest.

[NAY]  After reading all of these reviews it gave me hope that it would work. Right away I went to by the stuff for it to only make the pain worse. I'm glad it worked for everyone else but it didn't for me. :(

[YEA]  Apple cider vinegar in apple juice: This absolutely works. I was enduring my second gallbladder attack. I went to the ER for the first one and they kept me over night thinking it was a heart attack. I refused to do that this time around so I felt strong enough to endure it. I wasn't. About 3 hours in I came groveling to the night god Google and he pointed here. I did exactly like everyone said and in 10 minutes too I felt good enough to write this and go to bed. Thanks so much.

[YEA]  I can't believe how well apple cider vinegar in apple juice worked... I was just doubled over for 30 mins and found your site on my phone. Had my husband run to the gas station near by to get apple juice which I mixed with the ACV and it is been 10mins after I drank it, the pain is totally gone and my stomach is warm and happy. Thank you!

I wanted to write in to thank you for posting this pain relief remedy of ACV in apple juice. I took 2 tablespoon of ACV, mixed with a freash apple juice and within 15 mins, I am feel the attack going away.

Thank you for sharing with us this remedy and I am feel responsible and thankful to pass this on to those who are suffering this attack.

[YEA]  Apple Cider Vinegar in Apple Juice for Gallbladder Pain:

Just want to say THANK YOU for this rememdy. I've had gallstones for years but they've never been a terrible problem until 2 nights ago, when I actually thought I was having a heart attack - never felt pain like it, it was dreadful. Paramedics came and took me to hospital and dosed me with morphine. But my heart was fine and the docs could find nothing wrong. When my heart was all fine, I suspected gallbladder problems. After about 4 hours, the pain went and I was discharged.

But then last night, the pain came back and I googled for a remedy for instant relief. This brought me to your site. Luckily I had both apple juice and cider vinegar in the house and my husband made me up a glass of the mix. I was crying with pain; it was really dreadful. But within about 10 minutes of the applejuice cider vinegar drink, the pain just melted away.

I still can't believe how simple and effective this remedy was. It was like a miracle. So thank you again, from the bottom of my heart for sharing this information.

[YEA]  Two nights ago I had my first attack. It was probably one of the most painful experiences of my 42 year old life!

found symptoms online and knew it was a gallbladder attack.

I didn't have any apple juice, but I had the ACV, I shot down about 1/2 a cup, desperate for relief.

after 3 hours of the worst pain, a warm/hot feeling came over the area under the right side of my ribcage (where most of the pain was coming from). Within 40 minutes the pain had subsided.

I'm a believer. It also want anyone reading this that its the first time I've ever replied to something like this. I feel that this information is too valuable to someone in that predicament not to have.

[YEA]  Gallstone Pain:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just drank 3 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar in 1 glass apple juice, and the pain got tremendously worse for about 10 min. Then, like the end of a storm, the pain began to subside and now, 20 minutes later I am all but pain free. In the past two years, these attacks last me from 2 to 12 hours. This remedy is truly a miracle. This attack began about 2 hrs ago and while still in horrible pain, I came to the computer and your website. An angel of a woman had overheard me at the vitamin dept of Sprouts Mkt just a few days ago. She came over and gave me your web site while I was asking for help for my frequent gall bladder attacks (last one just 2 wks ago). She told me to go to and I only did so now, and there was the remedy. I am so greatful to you people for your help!!!!!

[YEA]  Yes, agreed. Apple cider vinegar in apple juice is an incredibly fast acting remedy for gallstones! I usually need it right after eating a meal that in a restaurant that has been slathered in butter. If I don't take the apple cider vinegar, I get so nauseous I throw up within 2 hours. My gallbladder can't handle rich food any more.

[YEA]  Gallbladder Attack: I am completely blown away at how effective this impromptu home remedy works. 45 minutes after two tbl spoons of apple cider vinegar and a store bought single serve apple juice, pain is completely gone! Thank you so much for this! Sleep time!

So again thank you.. Wish I knew this remedy the last time, I spent the whole day in the hospital... Cheers

[YEA]  Apple Cider Vinegar in Apple Juice: This works!! After suffering for over 6 hours and unable to get any sleep, I googled for home remedies to stop an attack and found this website. So glad I did! Within 10 minutes of drinking it the burning sensation was gone in my chest and back and within 20 minutes the pain had subsided in my right side enough that I was able to sleep. Thank you!!!

[YEA]  I have been suffering with gall stone pain attacks for several years which had been misdiagnosed as gastritis. For the past week I have had several really bad attacks always at night and normal painkillers like paracetemol have had no effect. I read this eve about your Apple Cider Vinegar with apple juice recommendation. Fantastic. It's worked within 30 minutes and hopefully I will be able to get to sleep. What a great site!

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Been suffering from intermittent Gallbladder Attacks for over 20 years (maybe once or twice per month), but didn't know that's what they were until recently - I'd always been told the pain was related to my Kidney Stones (referred pain) or ulcers (stress) or GERD, so I never have received proper treatment for the pain and have just learned to live with it until the past 2 months.

For the past 2 months my Gallbladder Attacks have steadily increased to daily episodes which have lasted longer and longer until, for the past 3 weeks, the pain continued unabated 24hours per day every day.

I've come to this site because the Attacks are making daily activities, including eating and working, nearly impossible anymore and I need to find some relief from the pain and perhaps a cure as I do not wish to have my Gallbladder removed to fix this.

I've begun with the Apple Cider Vinegar treatment - it has helped reduce the pain by about 50% for a short while after taking a mixture of 4 Tablespoons of ACV with 8oz of water (chasing it with Cranberry Juice to kill the taste and help reduce my Kidney Stones), but it can't stop the pain. I plan to move on to the Epsom Salt Cleanse to see if that helps and, of course, alter my diet to remove those foods which aggravate the condition.

Thank you all, and this site, for the helpful information provided regarding Gallbladder experiences, symptoms and treatments.

Good luck to us all in dealing with this ailment.

Regards, -Darin

I don't know about ACV for the gallbladder but thought I would mention what happened to me. When I got pregnant my husband was concerned about me gaining too much weight and I was concerned about getting stretch marks so I cut out butter on my toast and eliminated as much fat out of my diet as I could. I experienced gallbladder attacks so bad I would vomit. This would only happen in the evening. I later read that the gallbladder needs fat to contract and function properly which supports why my fat-free breakfast caused me so much discomfort at night.
