Flushes DO work—I did 5 so far and they kept me from a gallbladder surgery and returned my vitality!
About 3 months ago I started getting reflux off and on. 2 weeks ago I came down with a heavy cold, and about 6 days ago the reflux got really bad and I also had gallbladder pain. I have had gall bladder pain before, several years ago and cured it then with a liver diet, and grapefruit juice and olive oil.
With a bad cold, reflux and gall bladder pain I decided that my first line of attack needed to be my cold.
About 4 days ago I got serious with the cold cure- cod liver oil- 1 desert spoon full, Rose Hip Vital- 3 capsules, colloidal silver- 1 dessertspoon full and olive leaf extract- 1 dessertspoon full. I did this about 4 times per day, away from food.
In between, I also took about a desert spoon full of casa casa seeds in water about 3 times per day. They are a special type of poppy seed that I get from the Indian grocery store. You put them in water and they go gluggy and expand. After 2 days of this treatment my cold was quite a bit better as I had expected....but the funny thing is that my reflux and gall bladder pain has COMPLETELY disappeared!
I don't know what did it, but knowing how difficult to treat and common reflux and gall bladder problems are, I would say this cure is worth pursuing for anyone in pain and discomfort.
In a emergency short of ER, if there are stones stuck in the duct, I have used 1200mgs., (milligrams), of Magnesium Citrate which relaxes the opening to pass the stones. A Harvard study & Amer.Journal of Epidemiology showed "5 or more units of nuts per week (frequent consumption) had a significantly lower risk of gallstones". Juicing beets with tops is good maintenance as is 2-3 Tbsps. of lecithin granules daily with meals. Digestive enzymes are good before meals & less expensive is a spoon of sauerkraut with meals, homemade is easy.
An 'old' simple remedy I've used is to cut up a whole lemon including the rind/skin, add 1-2Tbsps. olive oil, 2-3 cloves of garlic, in a blender, & blend till milky & smooth. May add water to thin. Strain through a wire mesh & drink. Stay away from foods that aggravate stone production. Add to the diet burdock root, parsley, milk thistle dried as tea or pick the entire plant if grows locally, clean & lightly steam for vegie use. Eat more fiber & apples are good for the pectin & malic acid. Don't forget daily 'clean' water. Make magnesium chloride solution, NOT epsom salts, from Dead Sea salts or equivalent.Take 1/2 cup boiled RO or distilled water & dissolve 1/2 cup mag. chloride salts in the water.Stir until clear, store in a mason jar. Apply, when cooled, to gallbladder area when feeling stone probs. This solution may be diluted with water if it stings the tender skin areas & can be used on other painful body parts to relieve pain. It may also be placed in a spray bottle for easy application. Sometimes there are problems absorbing calcium which boron helps with, low dose, in a 'general' mineral supplement. Keeping the body alkaline avoids using the body's own bone minerals to buffer acids, which contribute to stone formation.
