Banana Stem (available in Indian stores) is a great remedy for gallstones. Can be eaten raw or cooked. If eating raw, slice it thin and eat it. Remove the fibery stuff that comes when you slice.

Chanca Piedra   1  1   

Posted by Carole (Bury Village, West Sussex, England) on 02/17/2013

[NAY]  An update on my situation. I have just had another scan which shows that the only change in my gallstone is that it has got bigger! It is now measuring 3.1cms. For the past three months I have been on an intensive protocol to help dissolve? break up the stone? However.... There has been no indication that the herbs have done anything! I have been using Gold Coin Grass as a tea and also a tincture. I have also been using Chanca Piedra as a tincture and also a tea and have just started a herbal supplement. Other things to help the situation.... Drinking lots of chamomile tea/lemon juice (helps to dissolve gallstones); dandelion coffee/beetroot (helps improve bile flow). Tamarind for gallbladder support.

Has anybody actually had any success with dissolving large gallstones using herbs? And how much of anything does one need to take for it to be effective. The Chanca Piedra (for instance) suggests just one 500mg capsule per day.

I did do one gb/liver flush a few weeks' ago and it was fine and the discomfort was better for a little while. However, I keep being advised not to attempt any flushes with such a large stone. Surgery would seem to be my only option.... which is sad when I have put so much effort into trying to keep the gb.

I'd appreciate any help.

Hi Carole, I know that the liver flush removes g/stones, because I have done it numeruos times & it is quick & no fuss, just 2 days, Hulda Clarks method is simple & it works.

Hello Carole from Bury Village, West Sussex, England:

Please google 'juvaflex'. It is a essential oil blend that has SAVED my gallbladder. The same company makes another blend called 'GLF' which is brilliant too. Both these blends can be applied to liver gall bladder area topically 3-4 times per day, AND can be taken internally in an empty gelcap, or mixed in a tablespoon of honey. These oils are therapeutic grade meaning that can be injected intraveneously into your veins (and more than 50 hospitals in the US use them). No other oils can make this type of claim.... You will notice tremendous difference in a few weeks. I experienced that, and was amazed that I was able to save my GB, and share this with any GB or liver issues folks may have.

Feel free to ask any questions!

Good luck, T

Hi Tina, You posted this information for me before and I have had difficulty finding the products here in England. I have but am now having some problems trying to actually buy the products! I will try again as you have given it such high praise. I guess I'll continue to try anything.... However perhaps there is just something about calcified large gallstones that don't go away!

Thank you for replying. I'll see how I get on trying to get the products.

Also, I am seeing a new herbalist/acupuncturist tomorrow who uses both western/eastern herbs.

Thank you. Carole

Carole: Is your GS a Calcium, Cholesterol, or mixed??? I have done several gb flushes over the yrs with many small and medium sized, but it was only about a yr ago I did a flush and passed a few small stones and one as large or larger than your 3cm. I was somewhat shocked at the size and that I had successfully passed it. It appeared to be mostly cholesterol but could have had some calcium, although I didn't closely examine. I don't do the passive method of simply laying down on the left side. I take a roll of toilet tissue (a few minutes fallowing the oil/lemon drink) place it directly over the gb, pull my thigh over the tissue, and squeeze quite hard (with help from hands n arms); wait a few minutes and repeat a few times. This active method literally "forces" the stone to pass.

Try this method in the early morning, and if in a rare occasion the stone gets stuck in the bile duct, you can make a quick dash to the emergency medical clinic for removal.

Blimey Timh - you're brave! However, this is just the sort of support I need! People who have actually passed large stones. I am told mine is calcified. I am sure if it was cholesterol - then with the protocol I have been on - it would have changed.

I have been using beetroot; dandelion coffee; lecithin granules; tamarind; milk thistle; lemon juice; peppermint oil; chanca piedra; gold coin grass; chamomile..... All can dissolve calcified gallstones!

I just wonder if I need to be on higher doses? My CP capsules says one 50mg a day. However, an earlier post from Bill suggests 100mg x 3 times a day! A big difference. I'll have a talk through options with the herbalist/acupuncturist tomorrow. However, it is this lady who is cautioning me against flushing with such a large stone!

I won't give up yet. Thanks for your input.

Hi.. Me again... Re the gallstone! I have been trying the CP - in tincture form and then tried the capsules and after reading posts here increased to 1,000mg x 3 times a day. After just one week I have begun to experience headaches and also a burning-type soreness in my tummy. So I am taking a few days off to see if it is the CP. Any thoughts anybody? How long are we talking.... Years? If dissolving really does work..... And what would be the optimum dosage for the herb to work?

And, once again, I ask..... Has anybody really ever been able to dissolve/flush away a large 3cm gallstone. And how can a stone really pass along a duct that is only 3-4mms even after taking Epsom Salts during a flush?

Many thanks.... I appreciate your thoughts and support.

Carole, yes. But not by flushing, but by disolving it with fresh bile. I'm not convinced with flushing for the same reason you are. Please read this one page method that I used. It will be all clear after that how fresh bile is the actual method to disolve and stop stones from ever forming again.

Replied by Anon
Hi Carole, this is what I recommend for you:

1. Follow Stevenson's bean protocol
2. Still take the chanca piedra tincture or whichever one you are comfortable taking
3. Do the budwig protocol at the same time, the flaxseed oil/ cottage cheese musli if nothing else. You will find this on this site or others- there are reports of it curing gallbladder cancer so it should help your condition quicker.

Report back to help others, thanks

Reply to Steve or Stephen, thank you for posting the site Karen Hurd, this could be so helpful to me, I was looking so hard to find a food or herb that really does dissolve the gallstones, probably the cholesterol ones, as calcified, may be different, but this is news to me, so I will be getting those beans into my diet:) so useful thanks for posting.

Several years ago I had an ultrsound done and they found that I have four large gallstones about 2cm in size. Of course my doctor wanted me to have my gallbladder taken out but I would not consent. Over the years I have done numerous liver/gallbladder flushes but these gallstones are to big to flush. I would like to dissolve them and I want to find out what the best formula for doing this is. I am not only interested in the formula/substance but also want to know the science behind how it works.

A friend of mine who is into natural remidies recomended a South American herb called Chanca Piedra which he said translates as "break stone. " I can't find any dosage information or instructions on the most effective way to use it. I have made tea with it but am considering putting it into capsules. If you have information regarding this herb and the most effective way to take it I would be interested. I am also interested if you know of any other substance that would dissolve these monster stones I have.

Sincerely, L.M.

[YEA]   Just wanted to say that I have been using Chanca Piedra for 2 years and it should be the first option in my opinion. I have used high doses of vit C as well as Chanca Piedra, lethicin, and magnesium for gallstones. I tried many things but Chanca and vit C would be my first move as well as lethicin and magnesium. Also I started to lessen the chanca after some time and added biotin and fenugreek which is good for diabetes as well. Of course a healthy diet and lower fat intake is a must. Having gone through the attacks and what I call the heats, I wouldn't be without the Chanca and C. It took me 6 months to find out about these supplements and I hate to see someone else suffer needlessly. I used the 400 mg of Chanca 3x's a day till relief then cut back to once a day, maybe 2 if I had any fatty meal or snacks, I love walnuts. And I started out at 1000 mg of C 3x's a day, probably could take more. Somebody advised me on the C and I believe that to be a huge help too. Taurine is something to look into as well. Hope this helps someone as well, the cleansing did not help me so this was a blessing when I got this info.

Chanca Piedra, is Phylanthus Niruri. It is the stonebreaker.

The annual herb Phyllanthus niruri is best known by the common names Stonebreaker(Eng. ), Chanca Piedra(Sp. ) and Quebra Pedra(Port. ), Seed-Under-Leaf(Eng. ) but has many other common names in assorted languages, including dukong anak, dukong-dukong anak, amin buah, rami buah, turi hutan, bhuiaonla, Meniran (Indonesia), (Malayalam) and / Keela Nelli (Tamil). The herb is known as Nela Nelli in Kannada and "Nela Usiri" in Telugu. It is a widespread tropical plant commonly found in coastal areas. It is a relative of the spurges, belonging to the leafflower genus of Family Phyllanthaceae.

I should say about this herb. Phylanthus Niruri, used to grow in abundance around my house in India. I used to pluck and eat it just like that during my childhood.

This is the top most potent herb for liver than Milk Thistle or any other herb. It is used in Unani, Ayurvedha, Siddha herbal medical system for more than 5000 years. If possible, you can contact any Indian herbal practitioner for accurate dosage.

Himalaya company also sells P. Niruri capsules. You can follow their dosage.

You can start with 2 capsules per day. If you want to be very safe then eat 2 tsp of chywanprash which contains Phylanthus Niruri (chanca piedra) and many other herb for your whole body.

One more info, Phylanthus Niruri is extremely potent and Heat(in ayurvedic and Siddha theory)Producing herb, so don't over use it. EC, pls don't mention this as a side effect because there will be no side effect by using this herb other than it is heat producing.

*Heat is the body's fire - Pitta (fire/water)

Even I am going to start eating this herb occassionaly for general health.

Hope this helps someone.

[YEA]   The prep was easy, the mixes were pretty nasty tasting, but afterward I only felt minor "gurgling" on right flank.... Nothing painful or extraordinary. The next day I had a pretty serious case of diarrhea and released about 100 m&m sized green pellets. I couldn't believe it!! It's hard to believe that a natural, non-invasive and $12 solution to this problem exists! I'm going to try it again in a month, to rehydrate myself and to prevent a low in potassium!

I read Andreas Moritz book on the "Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush". It is an excellent tool to help get rid of stones. Lately I found the enteric coated peppermint capsules have almost been a miracle. They are supposed to help dissolve the stones, plus the pain is gone within about 15 minutes. You have to take them in between meals on an empty stomach. Sometimes I just take them in the middle of the night if I wake up. Gold Coin Grass tincture helps (available from SensibleHealth.

Kombucha consumption for gallstones is a tremendous way to dissolve them. Start 4 oz daily and build upto 32 oz daily within few weeks.

Check to see how to brew kombucha at home for pennies. Ferment/brew for atleast 9 days which is when all properties to dissolve stones are generated in the tea.

If consuming store bought kombucha, allow to sit on counter for 3-4 days to ferment more. Store bought ones are sweeter for the general public taste, but longer fermented kombucha that tastes slightly like vinegar has the properties to dissolve stones.

Additionally golden flax seeds in hot water can be sipped to get relief from stones. Google to find exact recipe.

I use coconut oil upto 3 tablespoon daily (1 tablespoon at a time) to help heal. If you experience pain with this quantity reduce the amount since fat consumption causes GB pain. is tremendous wisdom on dealing with this issue.

Goodluck, T

I read on the net that coconut oil could dissolve them and started taking, 10 ml thrice a day and waiting for the sonography again. No observed side effects yet. I am 73 yrs. Male and a diabetic for long. Can anybody tell me how long I have to wait before sonography again to know the benefit if any?

[NAY]  Hi, I was diagnosed with a gallstone 2 yrs ago. Just 1 1.5cm approx and opted not to have the gall bladder out. It doesn't makes sense to me. However, I don't really know what I'm doing and I may be causing more problems. I have never eaten fried food or any sweets since. Meat is mainly salmon, chicken, turkey or occasionally lamb No animal stocks, only vege. I get some olive oil or avocado daily for fat. I make all of my own meals. I recently I had my first major attack in 2years, but I did not have any fat at all. I made a pizza with fat free cheese for dinner and about 2hrs later it started, lasted the typical 4hrs and subsided. That was really confusing. And since then, I have constant irritation. Maybe it's alot of gases, however, Otherwise I eat mainly organic diet, with a good amount of fresh veges and fruit, and sip water throughout the day. I am commited to keeping the gallbladder, but, I don't know how to keep from having problems.

I recently started Lecithin gel capsules with olive leaf before I go to bed. I take vit D3 and calcium in the am. Also, my weakness is occasional creme in my coffee and on the weekends a couple glasses of wine. Can some one explain why the wine is bad? When it was originally diagnosed, by a gastro he wanted to take it out becaue as he said that's what they do. The U/S showed the 1 stone and multiple calculi that were so small they could not be measured. Beyond surgery he would not assist me, so I'm in the dark. I took acupuncture for about 6 months and chinese herbs which caused me to PAINLESSLY pass the calculi. It had no effect on the larger stone. I lost my job and could not afford to continue. I will start the Chanca Piedra this week, but can someone advise me on navigating this alone? I don't want to hold onto the gallbladder and and damage other areas.

Hi, I have read that when bile is stagnant in the gall bladder when you eat a low fat diet then the stagnant bile causes sludge and stones to form then if you eat a fat meal then the gallbladder is stimulated atlas to release bile and it tries to release the sludge too hence pain. So really you should work at dissolving/ or flushing the stones and then eat normal diet including fat so gallbladder can function properly.

Chaca Piedra is the real medicine to break the stones. Or even take chanca piedra tea.

Try juice therapy variety of juices throughout the day: apple juice, tamarind juice, lemon juice, carrot juice, lemon juice

And Ted's Alkalizing formula.

Check the following link:

the juice therapy will soften the stone and wash it away. Have your regular diet, don't take Calcium tablet. Carrot juice is enough for nutrition.

Hi Brenda, I would like to know how the Chanca Piedra has worked for you. I have suffered with gull stone issues for a long time. I have done flushes over the years but alstrosound still shows a large stone near gulbladders. I am taking erb supplements called stone free, you get them at most health food stores and they do work. But I do need something stronger to finally rid the worst of the stones.

Hi, I read here about the Epsom salt together with lemon, olive oil and apple juice for Gallstone flush. Can you pls let me know where I can buy the Epsom salt coz the Epsom salt that I have been looking on the internet are for bathing, not edible. Thanks! Rachel

Replied by Bess

Hi Rachel from Valley Park - If you need the epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) right away, instead of ordering online, you can find them in just about any pharmacy (including those in large stores like Walmart or some grocery stores). Most people use the salts for bathing or soaking their tired feet, but it can be used for flushes as well. Do make sure it's pure magnesium sulfate without any additives (it should state that on the label). Some brands add fragrance (like lavender) or other ingredients (like menthol crystals).

Before you begin, you may want to see if your library has The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse by Andreas Moritz. He goes into great detail about what to expect and there is a Frequently Asked Questions section in the back.

Here is what he says about the composition of epsom salts:

Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) can be found in mountain regions and is contained in sea salts. It is also manufactured synthetically by combining natural minerals.

Good luck! Bess

Gallbladder Cleanses   35  3   

Posted by Saturday5 (Bushey Heath, Hertfordshire UK) on 02/19/2015

I have confirmed gallstones but was also diagnosed with diverticular disease many years ago. Due to many years of over prescribed antibiotics I have permanent chronic abdomen pain ( like eating brillo pads for most meals ) and is very difficult to differentiate between this and the real thing. What I would like to know is, would it be dangerous for me to do a gallbladder flush because the stones might get lodged in one of the pockets. I have no idea what size these are and also, I was advised many years ago not to have colonic irrigation. Can they be safely dissolved and pass out naturally which would be better for me?

Replied by Timh
S: I always advise doing a colon cleanse directly after the gallbladder cleanse as each of these remedies help the other.

I would first try a passive ridding of the gallstones by taking the fallowing nutritionals: Artichoke Leaf Extract, Dandelion and/or Yellowdock, ACV, Lemon Water, Triple Strength Lecithin, Choline/Inositol, Niacin & Niacinamide.

Have you tried any of the remedies for the Diverticulosis here on E.C. ??

Posted by Renee (Chicago, IL) on 08/13/2014

[YEA]  After having a few, random but severe pains in my stomach, I thought that maybe I just had an issue with milk. I stopped drinking it entirely (which was very hard to do) in hopes that these pains would stop. They didn't. I knew something was going on & didn't even think anything of my gall bladder. A few months went by & it was becoming worse. I was getting attacks 2-3 times a week, when it used to be maybe 1 a week. After the last one, the most severe of it all, I decided to Google.

Every single symptom I was suffering from was in conjunction with gall bladder issues & stones. It made sense, the pains where right where it suggested. I initially went through my health insurance's website to find someone to go get a check up. But when I used the cost estimation tool, it was going to cost me at the very, very least $7,000. That was just for the procedure to remove my gall bladder, let alone recovery & anything else. My brother had his removed a few months ago & ended up paying $28k. No way, not for me.

So I found a lot of sites listing the natural approach. I was a bit skeptical, but after reading so many positive reviews, I decided for less than $20, I'd give it a try. What's one more week if it doesn't work..then I will contact a doctor. I am so happy to say that it won't be necessary.

I followed the cleansing instructions very closely. I knew I had two days off in a row coming up so I decided to start the process the night of my last attack. It was really late at night & I first ended up running to the store to get some Apple Cider Vinegar...what a lifesaver. It cut the pain out within 20 minutes for me. While I still felt some pressure, I was actually able to sleep thanks to this stuff.

Then, for the next 4 days, I ate 2-3 apples a day and drank as much 100% apple juice as I could. I ate pretty clean during that time, too. I also normally drink a gallon of water a day, so I stuck with that so I kept myself well hydrated. On the day of the flush, I was a bit excited to see if it was going to work for me. I drank apple juice with the epsom salt, because the water route was just not working for me. It was horrible, I won't lie. I cringed knowing I'd have to repeat the drink but in the end, it is so worth it.

For the final step, I drank a 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, with a 1/4 cup sugarfree grapefruit juice. I would have preferred to freshly squeeze the juice but I just simply did not have that option. I laid on my right hand side for 2 hours straight. Then I got some water (big mistake) and ended up throwing up a bit of the evoo. Not fun, it was the weirdest feeling to throw up oil. I had read after the fact to not do anything else after the last drink, but I was a bit thirsty & kind of a night owl.

The next morning, I drank another serving of the salt. No movement. Then it was time for the final serving & thank god for that. I ended up chasing it down with some honey because I was afraid I was going to throw up again. Luckily, it stayed down & just about an hour later...well, out came the stones. I was basically on & off the toilet for a few hours & was amazed at what was coming out. It makes you feel kinda weird to get up & look at what has come out, but it was also kind of fascinating.

This has saved me thousands of dollars & those little devils are just right there. I ended up eating some low-sodium soup two hours after the last salt drink...I was starving. But I eased myself back into it & didn't have the mentality of "Oh, well they're out now so I can go back to eating like crap." I feel like after this cleanse, I need to stick to a cleaner diet to prevent this from happening again. While the flush was very successful for me, no side effects at all, it's not something I would want to do again. You definitely need two consecutive days, because you will basically live in your bathroom for a while. But I would recommend this to anyone & everyone. It is much better than paying way too much money to get your organs removed.

@Renee: Good to hear of your successful gb cleanse!

Excuse me if someone proves me wrong, but I have always believed that one should lie on their left side so the gall can drain directly into the duodenum. That's what's always worked for me anyways. This explains your vomiting as you weren't properly draining (bile and olive oil backed up).

I shared the recipe for the Apple Cider for few days followed by the Lemon juice & Olive Oil Epsom salt cleanse with a friend. He was pleased with the results, although he says he has soreness now under the right rib cage. Is this common? He said previously he felt a gravelly sensation and pain... so the soreness is tolerable. He was asking me how long he should wait before repeating this protocol. Any experience or thought on this?

[YEA]  Story: my mom's (74) Dr told her there was a strange sound in her abdomen. She had an ultrasound. Nothing wrong, but they saw "shadowing consistent with gall stones, but no thickening of the gall bladder walls". Dr told her to change her diet and if she was ever in pain from the stones they would remove her gall bladder. So, since I love Earth Clinic we started to do research. We found lots of testimonies from people who had success removing their gall stones.

Remedy: We found Hulda Clark's paper on how to cleanse. Wanting to do it correctly my mom started with the parasite cleanse for 16 days. Cost was about $20-$30. (I'm doing it too and my stores here in Texas are cheaper than my moms in Oregon). Neither of us saw any evidence of parasites, but feel like this is a good thing to do first, after all the reading on the Internet. Hulda Clark recommends doing a kidney cleanse next but my mom skipped that one. ( I'm a few weeks behind her and have not done the next one. But will do my own story as an update. Reason I'm doing it is I read Gall stones can be hereditary. I'm 43 and have no symptoms)

Results: the liver cleanse is easy and cheap. About $10. My mom couldn't find Ornithine so didn't use it. It takes 24 hrs and you need to rest for that time. Obviously my moms case is very mild, no thickening of the gall bladder walls and no pain. She said the whole cleanse was easy and painless. She started at 2 pm and followed the directions exactly. The next morning she passed about 50 bright green stones. This may be too much info, but you should know this: most of them float in the toilet. Your system is empty from the fast you do, so there isn't much else that comes out. She did see lots of bright yellow flakes she believes are unformed ones. She collected a few and fouls the stones to be soft like clay. That's probably how they are able to exit the gall bladder, because they are soft. Once they dry they become hard again. She is going to take them to her Dr for verification. But if you google gall stones and look at the images they are very unique looking and we can't believe how what she passed could be anything but gall stones. She kept passing them from 6 am- 2pm. She estimates there were over 100. They were about the size of a grain of rice up to the size of the eraser on a pencil. She is so greatful to Earth Clinic! This was so easy and much better than the thought of surgery. She plans to do the whole cleanse again in 6 months. I will do an update as we go along. I hope this story helps others wanting info.

Here's my personal update. As mentioned above I have no symptoms. My mom did a cleanse and I thought I should do one as well. I followed Huldia Clark's recipe. The salts tastes yucky but not hard to drink. I couldn't find Orthanine and slept just fine. My stomach talked a lot and did cramp. Not too bad but I knew something was happening!!

Plan 24 hrs of relaxing and not doing much. I felt a bit yucky.

But, at 10am the next morning I started passing stones. Probably about 50-100. The largest was 3/4" long and egg shaped. No pain. But a bit unsettling!!! Mine are larger than my moms. Getting my husband to do it. Will post his update as well. My mom and I plan to do it again in 6 months and will post updates.

Sanaila: When the body makes hard stuff nanobacteria move in causing inflammation. The hard stuff prevents nutrients and oxygen from getting to the tissues. This is a main cause of degenerative illnesses according to the famous naturopath doctor David Wolfe who has given over 2700 lectures world wide. Fortunately God's Goodies can cure everybody of anything. You can become completely well. Salt, sulfer, acids in ferments and fruits like lemons, and the enzymes papain in papaya and bromelain in pineapple soften and dissolve hard stuff. Magnesium removes calcified minerals from the soft tissues and deposits them in the bones. Dead sea salt has 100 mg of magnesium per gram. For sulfer crush 1 clove of garlic, wait 15 minutes, heat at around 160 degrees for 5 minutes. Take several times a day. The sulfer not only dissoves the hard stuff but also forms hydrogen sulfide gas. This compound expands the capillaries and kills the nanobacteria. For salt take sun dried sea salt or himalaya salt. Make 1 quart of water kefir and take 4 cups a day. The acid dissolves the hard stuff and the microbes improve the digestive and immune system. Green papayas have more papain than regular papayas. Study edible wild plants, soaking nuts and seeds, sprouting, lactofermentation, and water kefir. Your family, friends, and loved ones can assist you.

7 Day GALLSTONE Flush.

I forgot where I got this from, my family has used it for years with success. My daughter was told she needed gallstone surgery some years back but used this flush instead. She passed the stones, and didn't need the gallstone surgery.

I don't know about you, but I believe my gallbladder has a purpose for being there and I'd like to keep it. -------------------------------------


. Apple juice
. Grapefruit juice (canned is OK).
. lemon juice, fresh squeezed is better
. Epsom salts
. Extra virgin olive oil (The green colored oil)
Monday through Saturday drink all the apple juice you can with your regular diet.

On Saturday, 3 hours after lunch, dissolve 2 teaspoons Epsom salts in a small glass of hot water and drink it, followed by a glass of grapefruit juice.

Repeat the Epsom salt, hot water procedure in 2 hours.

Eat nothing for dinner except a half a grapefruit and a glass of grapefruit juice.

Just before going to bed, mix 1/2 cup of warm olive oil with 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice and drink it.

Follow that with 1/2 cup olive oil mixed with 1/2 cup of lemon juice.

Then go straight to bed lying on your right side with your right knee pulled up as close to your chest as possible for a half hour.

On Sunday morning take 2 more teaspoons of Epsom salts in a small amount of hot water, at least an hour before eating breakfast.

That mornings bowel movement will contains small green irregular shaped cholesterol stones, some just smaller than the size of cherries.

I know this is tough but it has worked really well for my family. hope it works well for you.

I followed the flush directions using 1/2 cup lemon juice + 1/2 cup olive oil with the epsome salts, apple juice and water before and after and didn't pass any stones. As I'd been fasting I continued with apple juice and water all that day and did another dose that evening using grapefruit juice + olive oil....still no stones, no negative effects but wondering if stones are too large to pass or there are too many or none at all....opinions please. Should I try again with larger quantity of olive oil mixture?

Dear Sidney,

It is possible to have gall bladder pain with no gall stones. (I had a sonogram years ago because I was having trouble with my gall bladder, but had no stones, at least, none detectable on the sonogram.)

I would be inclined at this point to discontinue the fasting/cleansing, resume a light diet and see how you feel. I would be concerned that increasing the olive oil and trying again would be stressful on the body after you have already done it once.

If you are still having trouble after you resume a normal diet, you could try again or try a different remedy.

Just my 2 cents. Perhaps others will have other thoughts or theories!

Mama: Do be careful to not accept everything or anything from medical establishment as a final truth. After suffering liver and gallbladder problems and getting relief by doing the flush as advised by my chiro, I was good for a few weeks and developed stones again. I requested an ultrasound at the local health dept and was treated w/ much indignation. The results were negative, so a few days latter I repeated the flush w/ big results. I believe the skewed science is that these diagnostics only show calcium stones. As we know there are 3 kinds of stones ---calcium, cholesterol, and mixed calcium/cholesterol. My chiro diagnosed me by reflexology 100% correct.

Sidney: There are many versions of this cleanse, and two types ---passive and aggressive. The passive type is drink the stuff recommended and go to bed lying on your left side. The aggressive type is to fallowing the drink, lay flat on back in bed, place a full roll of toilet tissue directly over the gall and bend your right thigh over the paper which forces an expel of stones in the gall. This latter method would certainly be recommended as most effective compared to the passive.

Dear Tim,

Thanks! Your story reminds me of stories I read about how OB's used to do an x-ray to see if the woman's failure to progress in labor was because the pelvis was too small. Apparently, more than once, a doctor would come to tell the woman her pelvis was too small for her to have a natural birth and she would need a c-section, only to find the baby had already been born!

Mama to Many, I can definitely confirm what TimH was saying -- stones that are fatty alone and have no mineral content will NOT show up on a sonogram. If fat showed up on diagnostic imaging there'd be no images worth seeing, as the natural fat underlying the skin would block everything, even on X-rays. Hope this helps -- and by the way, I appreciate your frequent contributions to this site!
