tomato juice garlic cayenne pepper and lemon juice cured my sinuses

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.

Just so women know, parsley tea will often bring on menses in a non-preganant woman if she is late on her cycle for stress or hormonal reasons. So be aware the while the tea may help your gall bladder, it may also bring an early or unexpected menstrual period.

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

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.

B: If you have a chronic gallstone case, then it is most likely you also have liver disease. An herbal combination of Milk thistle/Dandelion/Artichoke will provide the antioxidant protection plus increased bile flow.

It would be wise to have some diagnostics done by a pysician as Hepeaitus is also likely.

Lots of great info & help at Liversupport.com

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Posted by Pam (Colorado, US) on 02/17/2015

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.

Soluble Fiber

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 :-)

Rei, thanks for your info. I will read the links you posted tonight, but don't be discouraged. I have read so many pages about all the things we should not eat as they will give us more problems with gallstones etc etc and I just decided that I don't want to restrict myself that way. I should be able to eat healthy food and not just cut away everything that seems ok to eat. By stumbling on the legumes regime, it made the most sense to me and has worked wonders that I could have never imagined for my body. The results speak for themselves.

As far as having a hard time eating more than the beans, well, I just mixed my veges, fruit etc in the bean portions so when I had the six times a day beans, it also included everything else I needed, so I was just fine. It takes a little bit of discipline, but not much. Every other day, I had a little oats with blueberries as well, as I was already full from my bean dishes.

You have certainly posted a lot of relevant information which I have only had time to quickly scan. I will read more thoroughly at the weekend. Some of the information is completely at odds with other comments I have read.

As to tamarind.... it was posted here and when I looked it was good for 'gallbladder disorders' and also for lowering cholesterol.

I settled get confuddled by all the information.

As to eating the beans.... I find it hard to eat the six portions spread throughout the day.... Which is complete contradiction to the protocol I had just started.... Trying to reduce the number of smaller meals to 'encourage the gallbladder to fill completely between meals.

As to coffee.... consumption of moderate amounts of coffee (weith or without caffeine) and/or other herbs that promote bile flow.

I will comment further when I have read all your postings... thank you.

Gallby has done exceptionally well! Wish he had the scan though.

p.s. Having problems typing this up - not sure what will appear?

Rei, thanks again for the links you posted. My scan is April 8, so lets see what it shows and then go from there I guess. Dr. Oz this week talked about soluble fiber and just how important it is for us and my case confirms this too. He mentioned I think it was one week a month to go a week with as much soluble fiber as you can, so he must know something those links you posted perhaps missed?

The internet can drive me nuts sometimes as there will always be someone somewhere bashing everything that is healthy for us, so I do my best to try and keep an open mind and use good reason and go from there.

Stevenson & Carole,

It's been a quite some time since I've been here. I was doing well on the bean protocol, but fell off the bandwagon about 2 weeks ago. Here in the US it's "tax time", so my schedule has been ridiculous to say the least (I am a bookkeeper w/several clients). Today is the deadline, and I just remembered to file for myself!

Although I fell off schedule, I have managed to have beans every day. I've cleaned up my diet pretty well, adding tons of fresh raw veggies, Quinoa, and I have had very little animal products. In the last month, I've had a 2 meals with actual animal meat, per se. I had a few shrimp one night and some chicken another. Up until this weekend, I have felt complete relief of any nagging pain and discomfort. Then came the pizza, with all the cheese and fat. I paid dearly for that move. Obviously I need to get back on the bean protocol full force. It's a shame really, had I stuck with it completely I would be in the last segment of it.

Carole, how are you doing with things? Any noteable changes for you?

Stevenson, did you get your results back from the scan?

I've added raw beets to my food intake yesterday, after that horrid attack. Perhaps that will help me as well. Who knows...

Hi Rei! My gb area seems fine.... If you see my post re heartburn you will see I have now started a different set of problems! ?!

I did 5 weeks of the high legume protocol and don't know if that has contributed to the heartburn problem as legumes are acidic ? So having a week off from lots of beans and then will have another go. Was waiting to hear from Stevenson- see how things went with the scan.

I didn't really get any useful feedback from Karen Hurd.... whether there is any evidence of the legume therapy actually working.

The only thing I can say from your post.... At least you know that you can do better! And what foods still create problems!

I'll let you know what my gb surgeon says after Friday. I really want to keep the gb. Sadly I was turned down for the Chinese surgery because of my wonky thyroid issues. My U. K. Surgeon says he can perform surgery to remove the stone.... But doesn't recommend it because of the increased risk of bile leakage!

I don't know some days..... what else is there to try?

Take care.

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!

Good luck

Carole, thanks for sharing that info! I posted yesterday here, but it never showed up. It seems the moderators pick and choose what is displayed, which is not such a good thing really. If this post gets through and anyone can recommend another site to post my ultrasound scan let me know please.

Hi! I am in the process of looking at all the links re the gallstone protocol. I asked Karen Hurd for any data that would support her high fibre diet and she responded immediately with the following link.... which I share here.


Perhaps we can share any thoughts.

Swedish Bitters

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.

Sweedish bitter give me diahrrhea. I looked up ingredients and it has senna in it, no wonder. I am not sure, why they put it there. So it is not usable for me, just externally. You didn't notice any problems?

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!

Replied by Donna

Can you give me the exact amount of vinegar and honey you used and how often and whether or not you fasted or if there is anything specific.

Dr wants to remove my gallbladder but I would prefer looking for natural cures. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

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.

i have been diagnosed with gallstones this past may of '07. i couldnt believe this is what was causing my nasuea and pain. i landed on this site looking for a remedy for another health issue i was having and decided to share my gallstone cure with everyone. i started off trying to obtain gallcleanse which i heard was the miracle drug out there. all natural, safe, doctor approved (can find it online but sold out every where) but my order has been on back order so long i tried Yi Dan instead (also found online). its 3 tablets 2x a day so i take them in the am and pm when i wake and sleep. no more pain. im going back for an ultrasound but i can almost guarantee there will NOT be any stones in my gallbladder! i can just feel it!!! Gallcleanse or Yi Dan are your best bet!!! good luck!
