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?
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 https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/diverticulosis-diverticulitis-treatment.html on E.C. ??
Timh, can you provide more information and details on your passive plan for passing gallstones? How much of each item and on what sort of schedule?
I'm very interested to know how big your stones were. I have had a scan and they found quite a few small ones and one large 2.5cm stone. I've been warned it is too big to pass the bile duct so I'm scared to do a cleanse. I have read about a lot about flushes and it sounds amazing. I just want to shrink the big one so I can do the flush and get all the benefits.
Learned about the gall bladder cleanse of apples, Epsom salt, and oil/juice procedure. Tried it and had good success passing about 20 plus little soft pebbles about the size of papaya seeds. Feel great!
Want to thank you for your site particularly the organization of it so that on can see yea, nay experiences in terms of numbers and real life experiences.
Yea, yea, yea for this method for me and am telling others. Family members now trying. And, looking forward to checking out other mass successful remedies.
Proof is in the pudding :)
After reading the many posts here (some very entertaining! ), I decided to try the olive oil/lemon juice liver cleanse because it was the easiest to do and least time consuming. This was my first stab at any type of cleanse! I don't have stones... just wanted to get the gunk out of my liver.
Had no water or food after 1pm.
Mixed 4 Tbs Epsom salt & 3 cups water in a plastic cup - 5pm - drank 3/4 cup of the Epsom salt water
7pm - drank 3/4 cup of epsom salt water - 9pm - squeezed 3 lemons and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil into a plastic container w/lid and shook it up. Took it to the bedroom to consume. The mixture smelled AWFUL and tasted just as bad! But I managed to choke it down (with a straw to the back of my throat) in about 10 minutes The tartness of the lemons is what made it very difficult for me! I laid down immediately after, my head propped up on two pillows and managed to sleep for 2-1/2 hrs before having to make a "#1 pit-stop".
I went back to bed and slept until 5:30. Took another dose of 3/4 c Epsom salt mixture and slept until 7:30. Then consumed my final dose of Epsom mixture (yea! ). About 1/2 hour later, had a bowel movement. Peering in the bowl my stool was very dark, stringy and oily. I decided not to poke and prod at it (yuk! ), but satisfied that if the cleanse removed some of the gunk in my liver, that's enough for me! The only physical symptom I had throughout was a mild headache, but not sure if it was from not eating or from the cleanse itself.
I have done 11 Dr. Clark's liver/gallbladder cleanses over a period of 5 years. After the 7th one, not many stone evident. The rest were for maintance purposes. Only a few stones and cholestral shaff. I was not originally suffering attacks. I highly recommend this protocol.
How big were your large stones? My biggest ones are 2.4 cm. so I doubt if the gallbladder flush will be able to flush them because I've heard talk about it only working for stones 2.1 cm and smaller.
Just did the Liver/Gallbladder flush today and watched about 120 stones come out of my body. It works. Do it!
Just completed my first gall bladder and liver flush. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with a diseased gall bladder and was told I needed to have my gall bladder removed. At the time, I didn't have insurance and could not afford the surgery.
After much prayer, I decided to try changing my diet. I went completely organic and removed all processed foods from my diet. Began taking ACV, but not regularly. Symptoms went away for almost 2 years and I have felt great. However, recently I began to experience the dull ache just under my right rib cage again. I've been reading about Hulda Clark's gall bladder and liver flush for about 2 years and was afraid to do it. I was afraid something would get lodged and I might end up in the hospital.
But, after reading the comments on earth clinic, I decided to go ahead and try. It was as many have said easy and painless. I did experience nausea during the night, and still have a little nausea going on. I think as soon as I eat the nausea should pass. But, I have collected maybe 60 stones varying in size. The largest was about 7 cm. I will probably try this cleanse again in about 3 weeks. Thanks to everyone who posts their experiences!
I have also used Hulda's flush many times with great success but have always taken the ornithine as recommended. It helps you go to sleep and stay asleep so as not to be disturbed by the discomfort you may experience through the night. I prefer using fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice with the olive oil (personal taste) and read a little trick that I tried the last time.... That is to add a tablespoon of grapefruit juice to the Epsom salts to help mask the taste and it definitely helps. I also found drinking both the oil mixture and the Epsom salt mixture through a straw helps cut down on the taste. Thanks for the apple cider vinegar tip and the magnesium advice too..... I am still making gallstones and can't figure out why. I am definitely trying all of the suggestions.
Does anyone know if there is a compound unique to lemon that makes this work, or will lime or orange do just as well? I am allergic to lemons (and hate grapefruit). Any alternatives you know of would be appreciated. Thanks!
I read somewhere that you can use sour apples or sour grapes.
I had my gallbladder removed in 1997 - full of stones including some that looked like "tater tots" (no kidding)
My question(s): does the body still produce these in the absence of the gallbladder? if so how and where? How are these things best eliminated? What benefits might I see if I were to follow such a cleanse? (if neede due to not having the gallbladder in the 1st place)What would be the best of the kazillion cleanses out there for such a situation (IF needed). I'm doing the ACV with baking soda, blackstrap molasses, and coconut oil already - only recently however (about a week or so now).
This is very old, sorry, but curious if anyone responded or you tried it and what you found out. Thank you!
For whom it concerns -
I just finished the liver/gallbladder cleanse/flush.
It worked!!! Pass almost 100 stones... the largest 1/2 in diameter.
Thanks for the post...
6 ounces of oil seems like a lot. 4 oz. should work. I'm just saying this because so many people can't get 6 oz. down the hatch. If you can, well, that's good.
Removing gallstones recipe-
3/4 cup virgin olive oil
1/4 cup pure lemon juice
Here is what you do.
Pick a day that you want to do this cleanse. On this day eat and drink anything up until noon only. Do not eat anything after 12 oclock noon, can drink water only. At bedtime, mix together your olive oil and lemon juice, drink it all down. Go right to bed. Lay on your right side with your right knee bent towards
your chest as high as comfortable.T his procedure will cause your gallbladder to contract and expel your gallstones. Your gallstones will start coming out with your next bowel movement.This has helped my aunt and my step father remove gallstones.This mixture doesn't taste real good but it can and probably will work for you.
My disclaimer is that I am not a doctor and I am not prescribing medicine but only sharing the benefits of healthy foods. I am 60 years old and I have done this cleanse myself. Its easy, inexpensive, quick and simple.
My step father experienced a side effect of diarrhea with this but myself and my aunt did not.The diarrhea could happen but not neccessarily, so just be prepared just in case.
Medical doctors are trained to understand disease. They are not trained in health.
It is a rare doctor indeed who understands health ...
My wife and I do 3 liver and lymph detox's a year at the direction of our anti-aging doctor. It is a 10 day limited fast will lots of minerals and vitimins. I think it is the 3 days of only crucifers that does the detoxing. However, we always end this fast with Hulda Clark's liver flush using epsom salt, olive oil and lemon juice. After several years, we do not get stones, just a little gravel. I presume if we had kidney stones, they too would pass. Lots of apple juice is a player in cleaning up your liver and kidneys.
At church this morning, it was announced that an older lady friend had been taken to a Knoxville hospital last night and sent home with the prognosis of kidney stones. I gave her son in law Earth Clinic's web site, but am not optomestic that she will use the lemon juice and olive oil cure. It's too cheap and simple. I could expound for hours on how this site had helped us . Especially in addressing Demodex mites and sinus congestion. That story also repulses most folks. The solution must come from Big Pharma.
... To the person who might be breaking up gall stones in the liver and being in a lot of pain passing those stones, it is a good thing to pass those stones. I passed a lot of them at once, and immediately my energy level increased. Now I understand what is meant by a sluggish liver. But I passed all those stones, hundreds of them in one evening, by using a liver cleanse. There are many of them described on the internet. I found one that used lemon juice, olive oil, grapefruit juice and Epsom salt. I took this at night, woke up in the morning and passed all those stones painlessly, and lost about 3" on my waist overnight. I know that because I had to tighten my belt. The Epsom salt (food-grade) apparently relaxes the muscles enough to open the ducts to allow the stones to pass out easily. I was amazed at their size...
My son was involved in a road accident about 7 years ago, was in coma for months and like a vegetable thereafter. After prologned physio, family efforts and God's will, he is today about 85 to 90% recovered. However, probably due to a PEG in his stomach (through which we use to feed him mashed food as he could not respond at that time), he seems to have developed gallstones. Four months ago he had severe gallstone pain (attack?) and later was diagnosed for pancreatitis also, hospitalised, and after stabilising, an ERCP performed on him. Now the doctors want to remove his gall bladder.
I read about the Liver cleanse and would like him to try it. What stops me is the Epsom salts - they are magnesium sulphate. Four tablespoon Epsom would be 40gm or nearabouts (at-least 10gm of magnesium) while our daily recommended magnesium is about 250-400 milligram. Can anybody tell me if it is safe to take internally such a large dose of magnesium sulphate over a couple of hours, and if anyone has had any side effects (hypermagnesium or some such thing)?
Thanks for the help.
4tablespoon Epsom is safe. I'm 62 and one of 8 kids in my family. Any time one of us felt sick or moody my parents would give us at least 4 tablespoon of epsom salt in warm water and then a glass of clean water ( to clean our system out ) we never stayed home from school pretending we were sick. My oldies sister is 68 and my youngest brother is 50 years old and we're still alive, all 8 of us. I hope this help you. Mrs Perry
P.S. Just make sure the stones aren't too big.
The Dr. said my gallbladder was packed full of gallstones and I would need surgery to remove it. I have really gotten into herbal remedies and so I started look for an alternative. I found Dr. Clark's book, THE CURE FOR ALL DISEASES and it was a Godsend. Dr. Clark says the stones come from the liver and settle in the gallbladder. Her book gives 4 major cleanses that she says are the best things you can do for your body. The 3d one is the liver cleanse which starts with the gallbladder. She says to do the parasite and kidney cleanse first to keep it from affecting the liver cleanse. Dr Clark says the liver manufactures bile which we need to properly digest our food and acts as a filter to remove toxins from our body. She says when the gallbladder is full, so is the liver. Dr. Clark recommends doing the liver cleanse every two weeks for up to a year to get all the stones out. On the third cleanse I realized every two weeks was too much for me so (I'm 58) I am now cleansing once a month. But, I am getting excellent results! With every cleanse (I've done 7 so far) I'm passing over 100 stones about the size of a BB on average and hundreds more tiny stones about the size of grains of sand AND the bile is starting to flow again, digesting my food much better! I have pics I've taken of the gallstones if anyone wants me to email them. I am also keeping a diary of my cleanses too. I go to an herb store for the ingredients for the cleanses.
