I suffered unusual pain in my upper right abdomen and just thought about it for 36 hours wondering what it could be. Remembering my mom's problems with her gallbladder, I thought I'd try her sworn remedy. I purchased some ground mustard and opened it in the car to take some - about 1/4 teaspoon using the foil top as a spoon.. Got home, drank a ton of water! Craving my homemade white bean, tomato, corn soup and wanting more of the mustard in a palatable form, I dumped 1 tsp in each of 2 good bowls of the soup. I also bought a bunch of organic cherry tomatoes I was craving. I ate it wondering if I ate too much.. Then took a hot bath, dressed up really warm, sweating everywhere, put a magnet on my side, went to bed and woke up pain-free. Completely. I am surprised I had this issue because I try hard to listen to my body but I read that my diet may have contributed to it - and severe stress. "Thank you mom!" (June 1923- October 2008)
I came across this site in a search for natural gallstone remedies. Last week I had intense bloating and a trapped gas feeling that would last a few hours then subside. I went to see my doc and he sent me to the ER as a precaution. They did blood tests and said I had mild pancreatitis :( They did an ultrasound and they said I had a small stone or a couple of small stones in my gall bladder. Right away they were talking about taking it out and I said NO WAY. They also wanted to to an MRCP to see if there was a stone or stones in the bile duct. My amylase and lipase were high upon arrival, but overnight, with nothing by mouth, not even water, my numbers dropped a thousand or more points. I graduated to liquids ( I was admitted ) and put on IV fluid with potassium and magnesium. Next day there, numbers within normal range ( higher end ) and I was put on solid but low fat food. I went to ER late friday afternoon and came home Tuesday around same time, by that day my numbers were normal range. While in the hospital, a Facebook friend told me about lemon juice and olive oil and I started researching. While there I requested apple juice and lemon wedeges and I age them. I think it helped. Since I am home, I am doing lemon juice and olive oil every day, so far so good. But I am wondering if the mild pancreatitis was not due to long term, but intermittent Immodium use because of irritable bowl, as certain foods seem to go right through me. Lately they seem to be finding a connection between Immodium and pancreatitis, so I don't know. Any thoughts on me trying the full cleanse ? I have yet to try ACV, but am going to go get some. I am drinking organic apple juice now. They say pears are good and if you look at pears, they are shaped like a gall bladder and are green. Many foods look like the organ they are good for. I was so shocked by the attack, but it seems more and more younger people are getting gallstones these days. All the hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup and crap in our water. I felt much better and never felt acidic when I was on a lower carb diet, I have to go back to that too.
Have to post this! I am doing liver flush by H. Clark. I could not follow exactly how she recommended it like lye doing right after taking olive oil/lemon juice. I was up for about 4 hrs afterward because had a lot to do. This liver pain I had for months is something that worries me a lot, it is mild but annoying (have to say my USS liver was negative for stones or anything abnormal). I learned about liver flush and decided to proceed after antiparasitic treatment. This am I had bright green irregular shape forms come out, hard to touch, but smashable with gloved fingers. They were wax like texture. Green hard wax! They would not desolve in water, if to press them against sink surface they would stick to it and not get flushed with water. Such odd and ugly stuff! Looks like they were about to form into stones.
I have to follow instructions next time and get more of this out. Highly recommended!
thanks to this website, I would never get to this on my own
I was diagnosed with "Focal Caliectasia" in my right kidney via ultra sound 4 years ago. Per doctor's recommendation, I need to undergo further IV xray which I did not follow because of fear. I just leave it as is.
After reading EarthClinic several times, I decided to take 2oz of olive oil and 2oz of lemon juice and followed by 500 ml of water for the kidney cleanse regimen two weeks ago. I'm not aware if anything came out when I urinate but one thing for sure when I have my bowel movement I saw something floated. I took the same regimen last night and again something floated. This time, I used chopstick to pick them one by one and I was surprised to see green gallstones.
I did not take any apple juice nor epson salt. I took my normal breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Breakfast - Old Fashion Oats with walnuts and almonds, Soy Coffee and Strawberry Jam Sandwich
Lunch - 1/4 Roast Chicken (Remove the skin) with one cup of White Rice and kelp with tofu soup
Snacks - Cinnamon Sweet Potato Crisps and Tien Chi Flower Tea
Dinner - Steamed sliced Lapu-lapu (grouper fish in the Philippines) with 1/2 cup Brown Rice and stir fry mustard with ground ginger & few drops of sesame oil.
I guess it all depends on the condition of your body that's why these gallstone came out with 2oz of olive oil and 2oz of freshly squeeze lemon juice.
EC: Read all about the olive oil and lemon juice remedy here.
I have been flushing my gallbladder on occasion for the last approximately 18 years simply using 10-12 ounces of olive oil taken a few ounces every 15 minutes followed by a sip of lemon juice.
I am a 52 year-old male, 6 ft. Tall, 150 pounds. I have been a Vegan for 27 years, eating a mostly raw food diet. Yet, I still get a gallbladder full of
Gallstones periodically (twice in the last 4 years.) I had always attributed this to occasionally eating foods cooked in oil or roasted nuts, as these indulgences would result in either a gallbladder attack or extreme discomfort. However, everything I have been reading says that these green wax-like stones are comprised mainly of cholesterol which my girlfriend informed me only comes from animal products. Therefore my experience tells me that the cholesterol theory may be incomplete. In my search to eliminate gallstone producing fats from my diet I stopped eating "raw" cashews because they are heated in the shelling process and so are actually not raw. Does anyone have any ideas on why non-cholesterol eating people get gallstones?

CURE FOR GALLSTONES
2 Bunches of fresh Parsley
Boil 2 bunches of Fresh Parsley into 1 litre of Water and drink during the day. Add whatever you like to make it go down in a more pleasant way. I like lemon for example. The most important with Gallstone is to dring a MINIMUM of 2 litres of water a day.
The parsley tea can be boiled and drunken cold or hot.
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. Com) and some of their other tinctures help clear the congested bile. Another good site is GallbladderAttack.com
BEETS, BEET GREENS, RAW OR COOKED (DAILY FOR ME) THINS THE BILE. I HAVE IT EVERY MORNING, FIRST THING. SUCH A RELIEF!
I've had recurring Gallstones for about 5 years and have tried all the home remedies repeatedly. The only thing that seemed to work was the standard flush everybody recommends, but it's time consuming and uncomfortable. I read somewhere that Radish Juice had an affect on disolving bile so I bought a couple of bags of Radishes and ate them. The pain has lessened considerably and I can sit more comfortably and breathe deeply again for the first time in quite awhile. I don't know if eating Radishes will completely clear out the stones but I'm delighted with the improvement so far. Hope this helps others. Good Luck.
I just tried Organic, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar for my Gall Stone attack. I remember I had one years ago and did a cleanse with cucumbers and such. I juice fast regularly and eat healthy - until the last few months. I started eating out and now paying the price. I've drank the ACV with organic apple juice and a little water. About 3 TBS of ACV. Feeling relief right away! I've used ACV to help with so many things! Please MAKE SURE you use the raw, organic ACV or you will get sick. I promise - you'll get sick.
Stevenson & Carole: I found a very interesting website and hope you'll have some time to take a look. It's a journey that one man took to save his gallbladder as well. While he has not had a follow up scan, he states that he is completely symptom free. I may incorporate some of his suggestions while keeping up with my bean consumption.
I don't know about how you both handled this, but I'm finding it extremely hard to eat anything more than these beans! Other than my morning coffee and cream which I absolutely can not give up. That is my drug of choice! I grind my beans every morning and when I want true decedance, I enjoy my cream and espresso's with my Nespresso machine. Granted, I cut my consuption down to 2 cups a day, but I refuse to give it up. :-)
Carole, I'm a bit concerned about the tamarind. Although I actually have tamarind paste in my pantry as I type, I did a very brief search and found that while it helps the liver, it is not so good for one that has gallstone issues. Here are 2 links that I stumbled across. Perhaps I'm reading it incorrectly? http://www.botanical-online.com/english/tamarind_properties.htm & http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16041099
I did however come across some unnerving info in regards to legumes and gallbladder, which I would like some input/opinioins. I will continue this regimen knowing what Stevenson has experienced, but still somewhat concerned.
Let me know what you think...
Thanks, Rei :-)

I am enjoying tamarind - so worth looking at that for gb support.
- And I like dandelion root coffee (good for bile support).
- Also, coconut is a good source of protein.
- Chia seed is also a good source of protein/fibre. a tiny seed packed full of goodness.
- I am loving my bean soup; avocado, beetroot and bean salads and salmon, rice and beans. ?It is so rewarding to be able to eat and not be fearful of what might happen.... as we know the pain can be very scary!

Hi, I notice you don't YET have a segment for SWEDISH BITTERS. I would like to see it as to me it is a medicine chest in a bottle as it helps so many ailments.
I've seen a person healed of pain in just 5 or 6minutes from Gallbladder stones pain attack. Amazing results after a tbspn of the Swedish Bitters brown liquid in a little water, swallowed and then the application of SB Compress over the pain area.
I've seen my husband's knee healed after an accident and application of compress on his knee for an hour or so, for a few days in a row. I've had a badly sprained ankle heal overnight with the application of a Swedish Bitters compress. I am never without it in my medicine cabinet, bathroom and kitchen.
Hope this can help someone.
I have recently been dealing with gallstone pain after indulging in certain foods. Last night I was in a panic with terrible pain and on the verge of visiting the ER. I have visited this site before for the kidney stone remedy, with great success and decided to try the vinegar remedy. However, I only had white vinegar at 11pm at night. I decided to try it mixed with water and honey. IT WORKED!!!!! Thank you!
Have had gallbladder stones detected with scan after several painful episodes. I was unaware of the therapeudic use of Apple Cider Vinegar, but thanks to all the great advice will defo be trying it next time. For me drinking copious glasses of water every day helps keep pain away.
