gallbladder flush without surgerydisclaimer: I’m not a licensed health care provider. Although I personally believe the following information to be extremely useful, it is strictly for informational use only! I am not responsible for anything that may occur as a result of taking the advice in the following article!

About a year ago I started having a dull pain behind my lower, right rib. I wrote it off as gas for several months, but it eventually became extremely annoying, so I decided to look into it.

I asked my sister, Kelly, who is a Registered Nurse and after explaining all of the symptoms etc. she told me it must be my gallbladder.

So, I went to the VA clinic (I have a health insurance plan for Claudia and Aaon, but I just go through the VA ugh) and went through several tests including:
- blood analysis
- 2 x-rays
- ultra sound
- 2 gastroindoscopies

What did the good ol Veterans Affairs doctors tell me? I have a few “micro” gall stones, but nothing serious. They were kind enough to offer surgery to have the gallbladder removed though lol

The VA is known for having substandard doctors and clinics, so the thought of going under the knife at the local VA hospital honestly scared me, even though it is a very basic procedure. So, instead I decided to do some research on Gallbladder flushes, well Claudia did :)

After looking through several sites, both German and American, the same basic flush kept coming up (below.) All of these sites claimed it was extremely safe and effective in cleansing both the liver and the gallbladder, so I gave it a shot.

After doing the flush I passed HUNDREDS of pea sized gallstones and feel GREAT…it worked!!

Not only is the pain gone, I don’t feel as bloated as I did before after eating… I’m running much better when working out and I just feel better in general!

NONE of the VA doctors even hinted toward a flush like this, yet after doing it, all of the symptoms are gone… pathetic!

Here are a few important notes:

- The flush is supposed to be 100% safe and I tend to believe it! One doctor said it’s “safer than safe.”
- Many people recommend doing this once a year, whether you have gallbladder disease symptoms or not… it’s just good for your digestive track, liver and gallbladder in general! Some even recommend it if you’ve previously had your gallbladder removed, as gallbladder removal normally doesn’t remove all of the stones.
- It typically takes at least 2 flushes, with 2-3 weeks in between, to remove all gallstones, although the first flush will make you feel MUCH better… I know it did for me!
- It’s very important to follow this procedure EXACTLY “to a T.” Every where I found the procedure, it was stressed that the times and procedures were very important… don’t “cut corners” or do your own thing.

The World Famous Gallbladder Flush

What you’ll need:

* 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
* 1 Large GrapeFruit or 3 Lemons
* 4 tablespoon EPSOM salt
* 3 cups water
* 4-8 Ornithin Tablets (optional)

note: You should start with a Friday, Saturday or the day before a day in which you don’t have much going on… you will be having MANY bowel movements the next day and you may be tired, so it’s good to be free of commitment the day after you start the flush!

Don’t take any medications, vitamins, supplements or anything else during the process.

Procedure: Eat a non-fat breakfast and lunch on the day you begin. I ate oatmeal for breakfast and some steamed vegetables and a baked potato, seasoned with salt, for lunch… it was actually pretty good. This causes “bile” to build up and develop pressure in the liver, which will cause more stones to be pushed out later on (very important.) I read stories of people throwing up and feeling like crap when not obeying this first step.

2:00 PM – Don’t eat or drink after 2 P.M. Mix 4 tablespoons Epsom Salt with 3 cups of water and pour it all into a pitcher. This will equal 4 servings (3/4 cup each,) which you’ll be using over the course of the procedure. Put the pitcher in the refrigerator to get it nice and cold (it’s even worse when it’s not cold!) Don’t drink anything yet. I squeezed some lemon juice in with the salt mixture to help with the taste.

6:00 PM – Drink the first serving of the salt water mixture (3/4 cup.) You can drink a couple mouthfuls of water afterwards to get help with the aftertaste. If you REALLY can’t stand the taste, you can skip the next dose of saltwater, but you may not get as many stones… I did both and recommend you do as well.

8:00 PM – Drink your second serving of the salt water mixture (3/4 cup.)

9:45 PM - Mix 1/2 to 3/4 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit (pulp removed) with EXACTLY 1/2 cup olive oil in a shakable container. Shake vigorously until it’s “watery.” If you have anything you need to do before bed, or feel like going to the toilet AT ALL, go now, because once you drink the olove oil mix, you MUST go to bed immediately for the flush to work properly!

10:00 PM – If you typically have trouble sleeping, take 4-8 ornithin tablets to help you sleep. (I’m in the U.S. and the 2 pharmacists I went to had no idea what it was. I eventually had to order it online.) Now drink the olive oil mixture you mixed while still standing up! Try to get it all down within a minute or two. The quicker the better… and IMMEDIATELY after you’ve drank the last sip lay down and try not to move for at least 20 minutes. If you don’t lie down immediately you may not get nearly as many stones out. After 20 minutes remain in bed, but relax and go to sleep. Don’t get up for at least several hours unless you absolutely MUST. (I got up at 4 a.m. and had a bowel movement, passed some stones and went back to bed… woke up later and passed more… everything was fine)

Morning – As soon as you wake up drink the third dose of your salt mixture (not before 6 a.m. – this was the worst one for me… nearly made me puke.) You can go back to bed after this if you want. Two hours later take the last dose of the salt mixture. By this time I had about 5 bowel movements and ended up having about 15 (yeah, it was bad… but so good,) so I didn’t even take the last dose of salt mix. Whether or not you take the last dose should be determined by the amount of bowel movements you have… your call. If you’re not sure then go ahead and drink the last one.

Every bowel movement you have for the rest of the day (for me anyway) will probably contain gall stones. They are typically bright green in color and the size can vary. I had hundreds and hundreds of tiny stones with 40-50 pea sized stones and a few about twice the size of a pea. Their consistency (for me anyway) was really waxy. Not hard, but not soft.

Congratulations, you’ve just flushed your liver, gallbladder and digestive track without surgery.

You should feel MUCH better now :)

2 Weeks Later – Repeat to get the rest of the stones out!

    Josh, wanted to say thank you for this post. I only wish I’d seen it 12 years ago when they discovered the symptoms I’d been having for about 10 years where actually gall stones.

    I tried oriental herbs for about 6 months, but didn’t really have any relief, so I had them take out the gall bladder and that helped incredibly.

    I have friends who had their gall bladders removed, but who say that the gall stones themselves came back. That’s a scary thought!!

    Please update us when you do your second flush after 2 weeks! Are you thinking of doing this on a regular basis?

    Can you give us links to a couple of sites where you found this flush? I’d like to read more.

    By the way, I have a great old “natural remedies” book that advocates straight lemon juice first thing in the morning to stimulate the liver.


    do you

  2. Joshon 01 Jul 2008 at 8:46 pm 2

    Yeah, I’ve read similar stories of gallstones appearing after the gallbladder was removed. I believe the reason for that is because they are actually created in the liver.

    Many people say you can and even should do this flush (it’s a liver flush as well) even if you’ve already had your gallbladder removed.

    I still feel great and although it hasn’t quite been 2 weeks I plan on doing the second flush sometime in the next few days.

    I jut looked for main source I originally got the info from and of course I couldn’t find it.

    It’s a PDF document that’s floating around in the “gallbladder flush” and related search engine results pages.

  3. Katie Dardenon 02 Jul 2008 at 3:17 pm 3

    Thanks Josh, I’ll go see what I can find.

    My understanding was that the gall bladder secretes the fluids that help the liver digest/filter fats. Which implied to me that it was a pre-liver thing. I can see from the diagram above that the gall bladder appears to be below the liver and later in the processing…But we all know the body is intricately connected, so I guess I’m still not sure how it all works together.

    Unfortunately for me the internet had just come into the small rural community where I live during the time when I had the problems, so it was difficult to even get access online to the information then. At least my doctor was the one who suggested that oriental medicine might be helpful.

    I may want to try your flush anyway (even without the gallbladder) since I had a liver disease when I was younger. There does not seem to be any residual problem or weakness, but I can see that a “tune-up” might be useful.

    thanks again…

  4. Joshon 03 Jul 2008 at 3:47 pm 4

    @ Katie – I’m not extremely clear on the subject either, but I know you’re right. The gallbladder secretes bile, which helps break down fats. But, I do believe that happens after it passes through the liver.

    I’d try it! It can’t hurt and I bet you’ll feel better. It’s actually considered a liver flush as well. I’ve heard only positive things and haven’t heard even one negative to this flush.

    I’m doing Flush #2 as we speak!

  5. Tom Sheriffon 15 Jul 2008 at 5:38 pm 5

    Hey Josh, nice job on the web site. I spent yesterday at the ER. They decided I had Gall Bladder problems without a fever. I’d done a 12 hour dogwatch and still couldn’t sleep. Last night at work (yeah, looong day) while doing research found your article.

    Are these pretty much similar circumstances to what you went through before the flush? I’m a bit concerned that the bile duct is already plugged and further flushing may just cause a bigger back up/pain problem. The final result would probably be the otherwise assumed endgame…surgery.

    I get that you’re not a doctor, but just curious if you had similar painful symptoms that were relieved or had the symptoms passed and weeks later you did the flush. It’s just a question of timing.

    Thanks for your service. The families of our servicemen are carrying too much of this load. It seems a wonderful marriage may prove to be the most important result in your life and that’s really cool.


  6. Josh Spauldingon 15 Jul 2008 at 9:03 pm 6

    Hey Tom,

    Thanks and glad to hear you’re back home!

    What were your symptoms? I had an almost constant dull pain in the lower-left site of my right rib. When I ate fatty foots it got worse.

    I was also REALLY bloated all the time. I would eat a single bowl of cereal in the morning, nothing else, and by noon I would still feel like I just ate a steak dinner.

    The pain wasn’t horrible, but the dull aching and bloating just made me miserable.

    My sister had a gallbladder attack a while back. She said it felt like she was dying. She had hers removed.

    I honestly have no idea whether or not the flush could make it worse if your ducts were completely blocked. Sorry, wish I could be more helpful.

  7. Tom Sheriffon 15 Jul 2008 at 10:10 pm 7

    Thanks for the quick response, Josh.

    Your sister’s attack sounds more like what I went through. The thought of getting scoped, the inconvenience, and the cost have sort of convinced me to go ahead and flush.

    Worse comes to worse and I’ll go in and get it yanked. That is sort of the path they had me going down anyway. It is amazing that after a day of eating nothing but fruits and veggies the pain is pretty much gone.

    It’s almost time for the first salt water…arrgh. I’ll let ya know how it all comes out…pun intended.


  8. Tom Sheriffon 16 Jul 2008 at 12:06 pm 8

    Hi Josh,

    Well, I just got up and did my third salt water. Nothing too exciting to report. There was a bowel movement during the night, but not particularly productive. I’m not “catching” the bm like they would in a hospital so it’s hard to say anything about stones.

    Uhh, I’m hungry. Yesterday was half a cantaloupe and a salad before starting to fast at 1400. I’m looking forward to lunch.

    The grapefruit vinaigrette wasn’t too disgusting, but choking down the fourth salt water will not be pleasant.
    No bad side effects other than I could eat a horse.

    One thing’s for sure. This bland fruit and veggie diet will strip some pounds off me.


  9. Josh Spauldingon 16 Jul 2008 at 1:30 pm 9

    Yeah, sounds like you definitely need this then!

    That salt water is NASTY isn’t it? and in the morning it’s even worse, man, that’s the worst part of the whole thing, that and the hunger!

    So, you didn’t see any stones this morning went you had a bowel movement? If not you will next time :)

  10. Tom Sheriffon 16 Jul 2008 at 1:51 pm 10

    Oh yeah, LMAO it appeared I was blocked in more places than the bile duct. Worked like a champ! There were definitely stones and the pain is gone. I’m skipping the next salt water and rollin out to eat breakfast. A healthy one, low fat.

    Joanne (the better half) is having her kitchen cabinets/counters redone and the tear out is in progress. There’s too much activity there so woohooo. I’m outa here.

    Thanks a bunch for having the stones to blog this stuff. Not going far cause have a feeling more trips to the head are inevitable.

    Thanks a lot, Josh. Peace/Love

  11. Josh Spauldingon 16 Jul 2008 at 1:57 pm 11

    HAHA that’s great!! Yeah, I skipped the last salt water both times because I’d already been to the bathroom several times before I was supposed to.

    Great to hear the post helped someone else :) Hopefully more people do the same!

  12. Amy Gon 18 Jul 2008 at 7:13 pm 12


    Thanks for posting the recipe as well as your results. My last gallbladder attack was a year and two weeks ago. I was in the ER getting 4 rounds of morphine, but declined the surgery because I was already consulting my chinese herbalist about it. (BTW, the ER doc told me that the gallbladder is useless and mine only had 1 stone in it. It also was not inflamed or diseased; however, all the treatment info he gave me before I left specifically was for “Your Diseased Gallbladder”. Hmmmmm…)

    My herbalist had me doing the olive oil flushes and at the time of that attack, I had already dropped about 200 stones doing those. I’ve done the flushes every 4 months or so and have dropped over 600 stones. I’ve been feeling the urge (a.k.a. the slight pressure under the right rib) to do one lately and I’m trying your recipe this weekend. I had been doing the one with olive oil, lemon juice and CocaCola, but yours sounds much more tolerable.

    Thanks again.

    Hey Josh -
    A good place to find information on this and other cleanses (kidney and colon) is http://curezone.com/
    About the middle of the page is a “directory” bar….along about 3/4ths of the way across is the name “Clark”.
    These are the pages dedicated to Dr. Hulda Clark. Most folks use her liver flush, although I get good results with a 2 day apple juice fast instead of the salts(GAK!). The juice softens the stones, whereas the salts make the common bile duct relax – either way the stones won’t hurt while exiting.
    I must say that the parasite protocol is important. I have found that skipping that part can really made me sick.
    Also it is great you had such a good result the first time! Many times the subject has to do the flush several times before getting a good result. I sure did. The last two times I got about 15 stones the size of my thumbnail, plus chaff. WHOOOHOOO! Paydirt for a tough job.
    OH! http://drclarkstore.com/ is a great place to get your supplies. Very reasonable prices, top quality. For some reason I think her son owns it…?
    Wow. We are sure getting relaxed about our privates these days. I say it’s great to keep each other out from under the knife and feeling clear and light!
    Happy flushing!

  14. Kelli1969on 28 Jul 2008 at 4:55 pm 14

    HeY Josh, This flush is real similar to the Chinese Doc I saw a couple months ago. Western Medicine is the best to start with as it is natural, In my humble opinion. This doctor could tell me all my pain and problems just by reading the tongue. Wild to hear, but it is true. I am going to do the flush this weekend… Wish Me Luck!!!!

    aka, Chatter Box ;)

  15. Flipperon 05 Aug 2008 at 6:34 am 15

    Hi Josh – Thanks very much for sharing your experience. 15 years ago my mom had her gall bladder removed after months of horrible attacks, only to be subject to one of those ‘minor associated risks’ of this type of surgery: pancreatitis. It might be a rare complication, but 15 years later she can be dropped for days without warning with comparable pain now from the pancreas that requires regular morphine shots at home to manage. For you and your other readers, much as you may be desperate for relief, we’ve now been told the risk of pancreatitis is higher if the gall bladder is ‘hot’ (active or very recent attack) at the time of surgery.

    Also, I’m not disputing your experience or finding but like so many things moderation is key. The following Mayo Clinic links cite risks associated with over-use:



    The Mayo is clearly western-medicine based, but it has a much more respected reputation than the one you associate with the VA.

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blogs. Thanks!

  16. Joshon 05 Aug 2008 at 12:36 pm 16

    @ Flipper – Sorry to hear about your Mother’s horrible experience! Just another reason to do flushes!

    Thanks for the link. It’s exactly what I would expect a doctor to say. I think most doctors are against anything that doesn’t require their assistance…

    He mentions that the stones may not really be stones. lol I KNOW mine were! These weren’t clots of oil!

    He also doesn’t seem to understand the process. He talks about the oil being a laxative. The oil is what flushes the stones out, but the Epsom salt is the laxative.

    It’s also horrible advice to say having gallstones without symptoms is OK. Yeah, you’ll live, but your insides will be clogged up. I don’t know about that doctor, but I believe a person with open tubes is healthier than one with tubes full of rocks. How effective would a garden hose be if it were full of stones? It’s the same with the human body.

    You’re right about the Mayo Clinic and it’s good reputation, but I don’t take this doctor’s “advice” in the least bit :)

    I’m doing my 3rd flush this week and can’t wait. The first 2 have made me feel loads better.

  17. james ginnon 09 Aug 2008 at 1:02 pm 17

    Just wondering if anyone can answer this question. Some of the images I see on the net of stones that have been flushed show them to be up to 20mm in diameter. But the bile duct is only 8mm in diameter.
    How could such stones be forced through the duct?

  18. Joshon 09 Aug 2008 at 1:22 pm 18

    I’d say those stones are very rare. Although I do believe it. It’s just like kidney stones. The tube they pass through is normally much smaller :)

    On average, of the hundreds of gallbladder stones I’ve passed, the size was about that of a pea.

  19. Pamon 23 Aug 2008 at 3:29 pm 19

    Hi Josh,

    Ok I am going to do this flush next week, once I get my kids off to school for the entire day.
    I must say I am nervous about doing it. My attacks are not too bad yet, only a few over the years and none that did not go away on their own in a few to several hours later. I did see a dcotor last summer who of course wanted to remove my gallbladder immediately. Said I could have a bad time in about ten years…so let’s take it out now! LOL! Yeah …I do not think so!
    Anyhow, my question to you is this. How is it that this happens to some people and not to others? Is it the diet? Or just bad luck? And how often do I need to do the cleanses? AND….should we really hydrate ourselves before, during or after this procedure??? I am VERY sensitve to meds and treatments and so I am very nervous that this will have ill effects on me. Just want to make sure before I begin, that I know what to look for and if I am in a danger zone at any time???
    Thanks for the advice!

  20. Jwnon 28 Sep 2008 at 6:12 pm 20

    I would like to share my husband’s gallbladder cleanse experience. He started Friday at 6pm with his epsom salt and water,then at 8pm,,and at 10pm he drinked the olive oil and lemon juice…then morning came and he passed some sludge, and total of 16 stones was passed about 1pm saturday.Around 5 pm he had horrible pains that he said he felt like he will pass out and today is sunday he is still in pain.What do u think is causing all these pains?I am just concerned.Thanks.

  21. Sebrinaon 29 Oct 2008 at 3:36 pm 21

    I am no doctor, but I just started taking Ox Bile to help digest fats, it’s suppose to be good for that. After I took it my right rib cage area started to hurt, at first I thought Ox Bile must be bad for me, but than I did some research and saw no bad side effects other than heavy bowl movements online. I than figured that Ox Bile puts more than usual amounts of bile into my gallbladder and liver, and maybe it hurts because I am flushing something out. I have cut down on eating as much meat and eggs, and make small concotions of olive oil and lemons at night, I have noticed much less pain when taking the Ox Bile. So I guess what I’m saying is pain is your bodies way of telling you something is wrong, or something is passing. Again I’m not doctor, and if your husbands in pain take him to see a doctor first and foremost. But it may just be he is passing something.

  22. Susanon 30 Oct 2008 at 6:58 pm 22

    Hay Josh,
    I just had an upper GI with small intestine done along with an ultra sound to my gallbladder. I have no word back yet from the doctors. I know your not a doctor but I was wondering if anyone out there has had the same symptoms as me, vomiting, upset stomach, can’t sleep, headaches, pain in upper stomach area, hot/cold, loose movements sometimes 2-4 times a day.
    Thanks for your info.
    PS A friend of mine just told me of a name of a book to read. Its entitled “Are you Stoned”. She said it has the formula for the gallbladder flush in it. It’s a good book.

  23. Jesseon 06 Nov 2008 at 11:44 pm 23

    I was very cautious of doing a liver gallbladder flush, because I had always heard that it was a complete waste of time. But at the beginning of 2008, a couple of coworkers and myself all decided to give it a try. We ended up following this liver gallbladder cleanse:


    I was blown away at how many gallstones came out of my body! I’m not kidding, there must’ve been at least 100. I don’t think a liver gallbladder cleanse would be for everyone, but it definitely helped me… i can attest to that!

  24. Daveon 14 Nov 2008 at 10:11 pm 24


    It is hard to say if I had the “can’t sleep” as I have chronic insomnia but I had everything else except the headache – took doctors over a month to figure out it was my gb (functioning at only 3%) partially because I had pneumonia when my symptoms began. I had a somewhat unique symptom where my gag reflexes were on super-hyper-overdrive (for lack of a better description). Smells, tastes, and simply breathing would set off the vomiting – once I changed my diet (high carb, high fiber, low fat) I felt normal within 48 hours (after having constant severe symptoms for over a month) and – 48 hours before my gb removal, I still feel great. I haven’t tried the flush, not sure I will but wanted to pass along the diet change. I’m not going to say “do or don’t do” the flush but definately, if you aren’t already, consider changing your diet to ‘heart healthy’ – this may do the trick for others out there.

  25. Sarahon 16 Nov 2008 at 5:17 am 25

    Hi Josh,

    I am so glad I found your blog describing similar issues to mine. I haven’t really had any “attacks” or symptoms other than awful bloating. That is my most gigantic misery and it has been going on and off for the past year. The doctor did an ultrasound and found I have gallstones. He said basically if I don’t have symptoms don’t worry about it but eventually it will probably be a problem and I will probably need to get it out. Every one tells me I should get it out or one of the stones will move, get lodged and I will land myself a painful visit to the E.R. I, like you, have been doing a ton of online research to see if there are other options and had come across these flushes. It was cool to see your post as a regular person who had done it and successfully so. I enjoy jogging and was training for half marathons. I was appalled that I was running for an hour and a half at a time and would still have this incredible bloated feeling, just exactly like you described – didn’t really eat that much but felt as full and bloated as though I had a full 4 course meal or something! I am really excited to do this flush now, but since I am working during the week I may wait til this friday to start but it will kill me to wait that long because I want the relief now! Can you tell me this, what kind of diet changes did you make? (If any). I love healthy food but I also love everything else too. Are there any good websites or books for that that you have found and liked? I am currently reading eating right 4 your type by dr. d’adamo and perfect health by deepak chopra. They are a wealth of information but I am always looking for creative ways to eat healthy food. thanks again!


  26. Kathyon 11 Feb 2009 at 5:52 pm 26

    hey Josh .I realize that you are not a dr. but perhaps your fans can help – I have had pain down my right side around to the lower back kidney area , lots of pressure, and sharpe stabbing pains going through my right side – today I have alot of pressure up under my ribs . I went to the dr on Sat. he said possibly gallbladder but he was confused because I had some bit of rectal bledding , very little and burning at the opening – I am So game to trying this cleanse – because they put me on an antibiotic and darvaset both of which I hate plus a perscription to get an Ultra sound , but no insurnace – no ultra sound , I dont do well at all with meds , and this makes me nervous- do my symptoms sound familiar to any of your fans – also I have been bringing up alot of bile and it burns – if I get on all 4s I can bring up alot of bile which helps . what do you think

  27. Joshon 11 Feb 2009 at 6:06 pm 27

    Sounds just like my symptoms! Only problem, and one I failed to mention in this post, is that if your gallbladder is bad, it’s bad. The flush will still help temporarily, but if the gallbladder is bad, it still needs removed. I ended having mine removed.

    The flush still relieved the pain for quite some time and it was good for my liver at the same time.

    I think some people have stones, but still have a good gallbladder though, so there’s no harm in doing the flush anyway.

  28. Kathyon 11 Feb 2009 at 6:14 pm 28

    Thanks Josh – do you happen to have a following for a diet or a wed site I could go to -to perhaps change some habits
    Thanks again Good health to you

  29. Joshon 11 Feb 2009 at 6:27 pm 29

    No problem, Kathy. Unfortunately I don’t, but I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. It’s all about discipline. You can learn everything there is to know about living healthy, but if you’re not disciplined it won’t matter. You just have to MAKE yourself resist urges and never quit. Most people start off good, then don’t see quick results, so they quit… discipline, that’s what it’s all about. Most failures are psychological in nature.

    I have been having terrible gallbladder pains for about 3 months. The Doc wanted it out but I said no. I am a firm believer in natural remedies. I have done 2 of these cleanses and the pain has diminished but not disappeared. I will do the 3rd in a few weeks and see what happends. I did find in my natural remedies encyclopedia that a 2 to 3 day fast on water alone followed by a 2 to 3 day juice fast will heal your gallbladder 100%. No matter what you have, even if its already infected and swollen. Im on my 2nd and a half day of the water fasting and my pain is about 95 % gone, so I guess these Adventist folks know what they are talking about when it comes to natural remedies. I’ll let you know how it goes. Is there anyone out there that has healed from gallbladder severe pains without surgery? Please respond anyone. Thanks

  31. Joshon 18 Feb 2009 at 3:22 am 31

    Hi Javier,

    Unfortunately I finally just had mine removed. I still believe in the flush for those with good gallbladders but full of stones and it’s good for the liver anyway. But Those people like myself who just simply have a bad gallbladder just have to have it removed in the long run.

  32. Javieron 18 Feb 2009 at 8:52 pm 32

    Wow! Seriously? Oh my goodness, I was hoping I could save mine. That kinda scares me big time. How do you know the difference between a good gal and a bad one? My pain is gone but I still feel my gal there. That should not be because I should not feel my gal at all right? I mean I never did before. What should I do? My doc said to take it out. But I want to try antibiotics first. Today is my first day on the juice fast. Should I try to remove the stones again for the 3rd time? How many times did you try?

  33. Josh Spauldingon 18 Feb 2009 at 8:57 pm 33

    Well don’t let it scare you. Not all people with stones have bad gallbladders and even if you do it’s a minor, same day surgery. I honestly don’t know how you could tell if it’s bad or not. I knew because although the flushes helped the pain was still there after flushing it several times. I’m not a doctor though.

  34. Javieron 19 Feb 2009 at 5:18 am 34

    Well I am a vegan now since I heard dairy and meat hurt your gall very much. This has been a way for me to be a vegan anyway. Amazingly being vegan is something I’ve wanted to do for many years but its been hard for me. Now since I have been eating healthier with no animal products I have been feeling much better. I began juces and food today (vegan ofourse) and I feel great. Just a little discomfort in my gal area. I will try my 3rd flush in about 3 weeks and let you know the outcome. Thanks.

  35. Personal Traineron 19 Feb 2009 at 6:02 pm 35

    Interesting article but I’m extremely weary of things that tell people about things that avoid the trip to the doctor….

  36. Javieron 21 Feb 2009 at 11:39 pm 36

    I’m sorry I don’t believe in conventional medicine. I have not performed the 3rd cleanse yet but I’ve only finished my water fast and a partial juice fast and amazingly my gallbldder seems to be healed. I wont count my chickens before they hatch though. But so far so good. After my 3rd flush I will know for sure how good things are going. Keep in mind that faith in God is number 1 and the vegan diet I’m doing is number 2. The diet is extreamly important for this issue friends. Well I will keep you posted, and remember that no matter how bad your gallbladder is my natural encyclopedia says that if you follow this fast and diet you will heal. Thanks

  37. Javieron 25 Feb 2009 at 4:49 am 37

    I have not begun my 3rd flush yet but the pain is there still. Not as intense as when it 1st began about 4 months ago. My Doc wants to pull it but I want to continue trying the natural approach. Boy I am so afraid of surgery. I am 33 young and healthy except after about 1 year ago my dad died and that attacked my nerves and gave me anxiety. This anxiety triggered the whole sluggish situation I am now facing with my liver and my gallbladder. Does anyone know anything regarding anxiety and panic disorders?

  38. Tammyon 31 Mar 2009 at 9:08 pm 38

    Hello Josh
    I have been going through hell for months now . I thought it was my heart. I Have had all the tests done for that to find out my heart is great. I am going to the Dr Friday. The hospital feels it is my gallbladder. I will let you know what they say. I did not pick up on the symptoms of this tell I took the time to look it up on line. Was looking for natural ways to heal this. I don’t want to have surgery. I just hate going to the Dr any more it seems every time you go they find something wrong with you and give you all this junk to take and half the stuff will kill ya. I have not come across anything on all the chest pain and shortness of breath I am having. Hard to walk at times. But as I look back at it the sharp pain in lower back right rib. That was something I was scared to get checked out. Greasy food OMG will keep me in the bath room. Out of all the burger places I could only get Burger King. God is leading me to eat more healthy more fresh fruits and veg. More grilled foods Learning to eat less red meat. Doing this it has been a little better . I am finding out that if you have this problem to say away from dairy. Is this true? I guess Soy Milk. Does any one know if you can use it in cooking? I now use coconut oil instead of butter or the fake stuff and it is very good. You can use in in all your cooking. Thank you for the flush. If they tell me I have them. I going to try this. It almost sounds to easy. Will let you know God Bless

  39. Lunaon 05 May 2009 at 1:20 pm 39

    Hello Josh

    Thank you for this, I’m trying it today and have just got to the salt mixing [I'm in Brighton, UK - so it's 2pm]. The salt inevitably sinks – how much should you mix it in on pouring later on? Does it matter that some 3/4 glasses will have more salt than others or has the mix been there for 6 hours just to infuse?

    As you can tell by the barrage of questions, I’m pretty nerve-racked about the next 24 hours :)

  40. R.N./colon hydrotherapiston 02 Jul 2009 at 3:07 am 40

    This is a must read book “The Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush” by Andreas Moritz. It is available on http://www.amazon.com

    I’m an R.N. and colon hydrotherapist. I started suffering from gas, bloating, constipation and chest/back pain in my teens. I had a very stressful childhood. To make a long story short, in my mid thirties I started getting colonics (aka colon hydrotherapy) and my colon hydrotherapist started me on a series of liver/gallbladder flushes. The colonics and liver/gallbladder flushes changed my life. I am now 47, still an R.N., and own and operate a colon hydrotherapy practice. I continue to do periodic liver/gallbladder flushes. Sometimes it take 8-20 flushes initially to clear out all of the stones in the liver ducts. Sometimes medical intervention is required if the gallbladder is infected. Follow your instincts. Love and blessings to all <3

  41. Erinon 02 Sep 2009 at 1:36 am 41

    Hi Josh,

    Thanks for your blog it was very insightful. I was curious since you have had your gall bladder removed have you tried the cleanse? Maybe you or someone you know has tried without the gallbladder? I had mine removed over ten years ago and I am one of those people who still suffer…..I am wondering if this will help because now I think my liver may have them as bile is produced there.


  42. Teresaon 03 Feb 2010 at 1:28 am 42

    So can you can’t drink water at all during this? I am sooooo thirsty!!


  43. Midge Morganon 07 May 2010 at 8:36 pm 43

    I did this and was amazed!!! This was actually my second cleanse this month and the first time had large stones, this time there were around 40 smaller stones of different sizes. Amazing! Still have pain today in the gallbladder, but I know it will be gone by tomorrow. Just did the cleanse yesterday. I would recommend this to everyone.

  44. Ericon 26 May 2010 at 4:19 pm 44

    I am so glad you posted this! I have had pain and pressure in my gallbladder off and on for several months. I’m 22 years old and in extremely good health otherwise. I tried the cleanse last night and as of this morning I’ve already eliminated at least 50 stones, some as large as a garbanzo bean. My rear end is still feeling the effects of the epsom salt, but I have no pressure in my gallbladder anymore and I’m feeling so much better. Thank you and have a great day!

  45. Rachelon 21 Jul 2010 at 11:56 pm 45

    Hi Everyone,

    I am actually an ultrasound tech. and this is my first flush. I found my stones my intially scanning myself, it seems I have at least 15-20 stones visably. Also I have had alot of the similar symptoms as the others on this web-site, pain in between shoulders, nausea, bloating, headaches, etc. Anyway there aren’t any stomes in my ducts but that is just what I can see ultrasound wise. The stones appear as big as peas but interestingly enough about 6 months ago they were the size of grains of sand or alittle bigger. Wow they really grow fast! Anyway I am going to finish this flush tonight and I go back to work Friday so i will scan myself to see if they are gone from my gallbladder. I will post an update after that! Wish me luck! Oh and today is Wednesday.


  46. Joshon 22 Jul 2010 at 12:07 am 46

    Good luck, Rachel. I look forward to your update! I hope you get rid of them!

  47. Rachelon 23 Jul 2010 at 11:08 pm 47

    Well Josh,

    I was kind of amazed, Ididn’t completely get rid of the gallstones but like i said I orginally had 15-20 stones and when I scanned myslef today I only had 4 stones. They aren’t all gone but at least around 16 of them are! I even had someone else scan me to make sure I wasn,t halluncinating and she found the same, only 4 stones left. So i figure in a couple of weeks I will do a second flush to see if i can finish the job. That means 80% are gone! I was alittle skeptical at first but I read about the people on your website with the positive results and i thought what have I got to lose. And I have to tell you I feel a whole lot better! I hope this lasts and I don’t end up like you did and have to have my gallbladder removed in the long run, but I guess “what do I have to lose”! Thanks for your blog, I will update you later!


  48. Steveon 18 Sep 2010 at 7:49 pm 48

    what can u eat during the process i’m really hungry

  49. Joshon 18 Sep 2010 at 8:58 pm 49

    Awesome, Rachel! Congrats :)

    Steve, you can’t eat or drink anything outside of what is stated in the instructions (not even water.)

  50. Samon 19 Sep 2010 at 10:05 pm 50

    Josh, thank you so much for starting this website, I have always had a gastrointestinal problem, I’m always bloated and burping with acid indegestion to top it off. I don’t have insurance to go to a doctor so I am going to try this flush starting tomorrow and I am confident it will help…I’ll let you know.

  51. Loison 02 Oct 2010 at 4:45 pm 51

    Hey Josh,
    I just want to thank you!!!
    It worked like a charm for me.

  52. Johnon 07 Oct 2010 at 12:43 am 52

    Anyone experience pinching pains on their right side behind the ribs, few inches below the right armpit? Wondering if that is the gallbladder.

  53. Joshon 07 Oct 2010 at 3:07 am 53

    Awesome, glad to hear it, Lois :)

    John, I wouldn’t think that would be the gallbladder. I don’t know what that would be… the lung is there, but other than that I have no idea. Wish I could be more helpful, sorry.

  54. Deniseon 20 Oct 2010 at 4:57 pm 54

    John if not gallbladder it could be the duodenam which is very close to the gallbladder. One desease is duodenitis which is swelling and infection and it makes the liver and gallbladder swell as well. I should know because I had my gallbladder taken out by mistake. It was discovered when they opened me up took out the gallbladder, checked it to see if I had the Big C and there was nothing but swelling. They then found it was the duodenham that was infected. So get that area scanned with gallbladder as well because it can be treatable without an operation. See Dr Sandra Cabots website for diet as weight becomes a problem with no gallbladder after six months after the op.

  55. Mike - AnnArboron 01 Nov 2010 at 3:52 am 55

    I just had a ultrasound, and am waiting for the report from my doctor. My symptoms are burping, gas, stomach pain, acid reflux, and spasms under my right ribcage. Not a lot of pain at this time. These symptoms all occurred a month before my first marathon, making it hard to breath during some of my training runs. I noticed I was able to feel better when the week before the marathon I stopped intake of alcohol, sweets, and coffee. It was just a pasta, vegetables, water and juice diet, and I felt a lot better. Now that the marathon is over I am back to my old diet and the symptoms are back. I want to try this flush, but I have been reading that I could possibly cause some blockage may wind up in emergency surgery to remove the gallbladder. Regardless, beginning Nov 1, I will be doing the Apple Juice, Pears, Carrots and Water diet for a week to see what happens.

  56. Victoron 03 Nov 2010 at 7:33 pm 56

    I went through gall bladder attacks for about 2 years before I finally had the surgery. I had started doing some detox to prepare for the flush procedure, but my stones were too big anyway. I thank God for the VA, because that is the only health care I had, and they did a great job.
    I think the flush is good if you can do it early on, but you have to be careful because the flushed stones can lodge elsewhere and cause infections.
    Certain foods trigger gall bladder spasms, and some foods stop them. When I did not
    have any health insurance, I ate apples and drank apple juice to stop a gall bladder attack. It worked most of the time, with a couple of exceptions.
    Now that my gallbladder is out, I am doing fine. I just try to stay away from fatty foods. Regular exercise and eating right is good regardless of where you are in this process.

  57. cindon 27 Nov 2010 at 11:14 pm 57

    Trying the flush 11/28/2010 after reading all of the above.
    I have a calcified gall bladder so the Doctor & test results.
    I will keep in touch after I complete the test for relieve.

  58. Heatheron 17 Jan 2011 at 3:47 am 58


    So after reading all of positive results on flush, it has finally convinced me to try it. I’m not sure if I’m having problems with my gallbladder, but after talking with my aunt (who is a nurse) about the problems that I was having, she told me that I could have gallbladder problems. I have sharp pains in my stomach area around the right side and through my back. It makes me not want to breathe and hurts worse when standing or seating. Lying down on my back and left side seems to make the pain go away. Pain last from anywhere to 15min-2hrs. Did you/or anyone you know have any of these symptoms?
    Thanks so much,

  59. Innaon 19 Jan 2011 at 12:33 am 59

    I have had same symptoms described above.. past 2010 year summer time i had ultra sound UNREMARKABLE results but 3 months later pain coming back…. its very annoying… gosh i so dont want to go under a knife since i already had one surgery and it was for nothing… i want to try this but a lil afraid so that any of the stones wont lodge elsewere.. I will pray!!!! nd hope no surgery will be needed …Tx for posting this Josh

  60. Andyon 07 Mar 2011 at 3:12 pm 60

    help me man. I don’t understand, I don’t think it’s working for me. I did exactly what the process said. Last night, after I took the first dosage of salt water I did have about 3 or bowl movements, but didn’t see any gall stones. Last night I did take the olive oil and grapefruit mix and stayed in bed, never woke up for any bowl movements. Now today, I have taken the third dosage of salt water but no bowl movements. Don’t even feel it comin on. It’s still early in the day, but I figured I would of went by now and saw some results. Am I doing something wrong?


  61. Nickon 20 Mar 2011 at 2:42 pm 61

    Hi Josh,
    I have done your your flush and i did have green balls in my BM, looked to be about 20 of them. But I am wondering if it is stones or a reaction to mixing oil and juice? I dont feel any better after doing this.

  62. Flipperon 20 Mar 2011 at 3:58 pm 62

    Hi Nick,
    I posted my mom’s story above, & have since researched many forums over the years keeping my eye out for possible solutions for her. I’m a natural remedy advocate because I believe there are often effects from taking natural remedies. The challenge is to know with confidence whether the effect could equally be negative as it could be positive. You might appreciate seeing this link: http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/flushes.html The good news is that this page also concludes that there’s not a lot of risk to flushes, with one caveat. Good luck!

  63. SMHon 04 Apr 2011 at 4:43 pm 63

    Josh and everyone else here, I just finished this cleanse today! All I can say is WOW!!! It REALLY worked for me! I workout all the time and eat pretty good. But now and then I would get a major pain at the top of my rib cage that would send me to the floor for a couple hours at a time. Acid reflux also and most of the other troubles people here have noted. I had a friend mention Gallbladder removal to me and the same troubles I had, so I researched the web and found you Josh. I figured what the heck, I will give it a try! The first night a few trips to the bathroom but nothing more than feeling like I had the flu.. BUT THE NEXT MORNING.. OMG!!! Stones, STONES and MORE stones! I think I dropped more and bigger stones than any on the sites I have seen! I can’t even believe I had this much build up of stones in me. I have had a lot of stress over the past few years and this may have been the reason, but anyway I am VERY happy I found your site and tried this method before going in to the Docs office!! I will spread the word!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

  64. LC Kon 26 Apr 2011 at 3:22 pm 64

    Those aren’t gallstones. They are the result of a chemical reaction of the ingredients ingested.

  65. Kristieon 02 May 2011 at 6:56 pm 65

    I am thrilled to have come across this. I have had a tight ? full feeling in beteewn my ribs, upper chest. I also feel like I have a lump in my throat, and most of the time feel like I am going to vomit. I have been to Doctors a few years ago for the same thing, and after close to $3000.00 in med bills, they came up with a sluggish gladder. But did nothing. It cleared up after I went through a 3 week cleanse and colonics, YUK !!!! I guess before I try this cleanse I would just like to know if anyone else has had the feeling of something in their throat, and the wanting to vomit problem. Any further information is welcomed.. Thank you

  66. SMHon 06 May 2011 at 3:57 am 66

    LC K… what do you mean? Those were NOT stones? But they passed all the tests to be stones and I have no more pain even now…. weeks later.. all good! are you sure?
    Kristie… I had that same feeling often too… the part about feeling like you are going to vomit. It has been MUCH better after I tried this cleanse. I still feel the lump in my throat every now and then, but most of the pain and trouble is gone!

  67. SMHon 06 May 2011 at 3:58 am 67

    JOSH, care to comment on LC K’s comment? Am I wrong thinking those were stones?

  68. Joshon 06 May 2011 at 12:32 pm 68

    SMH – As I stated in the post “I’m not a licensed health care provider.” I have no clue. I just found the flish, did it and felt better.

  69. DSLon 09 May 2011 at 5:15 pm 69

    What do we have to lose? I am in the morning of the cleanse. and am pleasantly surprised. I had an attack 1 1/2 yr ago which sent me to emergency. Until recently no other attacks. Then I started having attacks about every other day. I am scheduled for another ultra sound in 2 days and hope to hear amazing things. I am seeing stones and am expecting great things.
    JOSH, when did you start eating after cleanse?

  70. Joshon 09 May 2011 at 5:40 pm 70

    DSL – I think I ate that morning…

  71. Christinaon 09 Jun 2011 at 1:24 pm 71

    hey Josh where can i get Epsom Salt At??

  72. Tinaon 10 Jun 2011 at 9:55 pm 72

    I was supposed to have gallbladder surgery 6 months ago and cancelled…Just don’t want to do it until I HAVE to. I do not have stones, just a malfunctioning gallbladder. Would this work on me since I do not have stones?

  73. Estheron 15 Jul 2011 at 3:55 am 73

    Thanx for the post. I actually did the cleanse getting to two weeks now and I feel like i need to do it again to get all the stones out. I felt really good after the first cleanse but feel like i need to do it again because i have been having mild pains and thanx for the blog because i feel that the second cleanse is needed to get everything out. I was soo amazed and thankful to God for coming across this because I really did not want to have to go do surgery or endure the pain that I was through. The ultrasound that showed the gallstones with my family doctor on June 29th and he referred me to a surgeon after seeing the stones from the results and can you believe the appointment with the surgeon is all the way in October which would mean that if i didn’t come across this cleanse that i would be going through all that pain. Ill keep you posted on the second cleanse and also let me know how ur second cleanse goes.

  74. Robbyon 19 Aug 2011 at 3:18 pm 74

    I would like to try the cleanse, got all the symptoms mentioned, but I am highly allergic to citrus fruit. What is the purpose of using grapefruit juice and can I substitute something else?

  75. marcellaon 29 Aug 2011 at 5:35 pm 75

    I have used a similar flush and have done this 3x and it has worked all three times. The third time though it effected my digestive track the pH balance so my bowel movements didn’t restore looked a funny color? So I took high doses of acidophilus capsules recommended by a doctor which helped right away. Also he denied that the stones I removed are not from the gallbladder that they do not know where they come from? Not surprised as Dr’s on blogs I have read denying the claims of people who use a gallbladder flush method.

  76. Karlon 06 Nov 2011 at 12:13 am 76

    Pure Cranberry Juice without sugar or concentrates does the trick as well and it’s less dangerous than taking Epsom Salts.

  77. Cynthiaon 25 Nov 2011 at 4:10 pm 77

    Wanted to add a suggestion that worked for me. I started drinking organic apple juice. A small glass full in the mornings and evenings and have been pain free every since.

  78. jwayneon 01 Dec 2011 at 11:23 pm 78

    well i just wanted to drop the line here, i know your not a doctor josh.. i did the cleanse and i did have some pepples come out that had waxy texture so i took them into my doctor and he said that they came back clean as oil based not from the body, he said the stones dont look like that and that it was how the body broke down and got rid of the olive oil.. that was a heck of a time getting all that down to find that out lol but thanks for posting this it was something to try

  79. Sandra Phillipson 09 Dec 2011 at 5:07 am 79

    Hi Josh,
    My friend of 19 years had his gall bladder tested. They scheduled him quickly for surgery to remove it. All they could really say was the fluids couldn’t run through it. (hmm…I wonder why…it’s blocked dummies!) I was really worried about what could happen afterwards.

    A naturopath explained what you and others here stated, so I was REALLY relieved to find you. Thank God for the internet! His surgery is scheduled for next Thursday, but when I called him this evening I think that I put enough doubt in his mind to postpone it until he tries the cleanse. Being another guy (guys have a way of keeping explanations short, sweet and sincere!) I believe he will listen when he reads this tomorrow.

    I’ve never replied to a stranger’s blog like this before…but I felt compelled to do so after reading it. Thanks a million! I’ll let you know how it goes. Bless you…and I hope all is still going well!

  80. Sandra Phillipson 28 Dec 2011 at 4:12 pm 80

    On Dec. 9 I sent you a thanks. On Dec. 13 & 14 we did the cleanse. I did it myself so that I would understand what my friend with gallstones was going thru. (I figured that I could probably use it too…even though I had no symptoms.) Well, it went well…we BOTH passed a lot of stones! Instead of going to surgery on Dec. 15 to remove his gallbladder, he went back to work! He has color in his face again and doesn’t have that awful pain. We’ve been taking aloe juice and digestive enzymes with probiotics to get our systems back in order.

    We will be repeating the flush as suggested…sometime next month. This is something that we will do annually to keep in good health. Thanks again for your research…and sharing your knowledge. Hope you and your family had a good holiday!
    Best wishes,

  81. rebeccaon 01 Mar 2012 at 9:24 am 81

    hi josh i have been suffering with bloating and pain in my abdomen for about 10 months now my u/s showed no stones but a mild fatty liver, my doc thinks i have sludge so iam going to do the flush tonight wish me luck

  82. Hemanton 03 Mar 2012 at 4:34 pm 82

    Gall Bladder Sludge/ Tiny Calculi
    Hello, I am 36 years, 75 KGS from India( Male). Recently my sonography report shows Sludge &Tiny particles in Gall Bladder. One month ago my Dr. had done Endoscopy to remove one stone from my CBD. At present I am not having any pain due to it. Is there any treatment to get this out/remove rather than GB Surgery. Please reply soon as its URGENT.

  83. Lunaon 13 Mar 2012 at 8:47 pm 83

    Hi, I last posted here in May 2009 just before I tried Josh’s GBflush.
    To the person who says it isn’t stones you pass, if you have stones and you do the flush it most probably is stones you pass. And why would you say it isn’t with no evidence or backup? I did the flush in 2009 I had another scan a few weeks later and there were no stones left. I saw the screen. Thank you Josh.

    It’s Wednesday and I am going to do the flush again on Friday/Saturday.

  84. Terry larsonon 05 Apr 2012 at 2:32 am 84

    Dr did ultra sound says gall bladder has to come out have constant pain on left side almos 4inches above waist on my back. This blog every one is on the right? Dr says Gall bladder is full of sludge.

  85. Pamelaon 11 Apr 2012 at 5:43 pm 85

    I was wondering if you eat as usual on the next day after ?

  86. Yvonneon 22 May 2012 at 2:22 am 86

    This flush is fine but the easiest
    thing to do,
    Is drink 1/2 cup of warm water with 1
    Entire lemon squeezed into it. Do this
    For a week or as long as you need.
    Benefits are….
    1- you flush your liver & gall bladder
    2- you speed up your metabolism
    3- you flush your colon
    4- it helps to break up fat
    5- it’s all natural and you can do it
    As often as you like.
    I had my gallbladder removed at 16
    But started having problems at 9 years
    Old. This problem is heredity from
    parents but can be eliminated by
    this process regularly !! It cheap and
    It works. The only side effect is you will
    Get ride of lots of toxins, fat,stones
    And waste in your system,di start on
    The weekend.

  87. Yvonneon 22 May 2012 at 2:26 am 87

    I am not a grandmother of
    12 and have done this for my kids
    And grand and no one else has had to
    Have surgery . Even the doctors can’t
    Explain it. I have a 9 years old granddaughter
    Who went to the hospital and dr.
    With all kinds of test and couldn’t
    Find her problem. 1 week of the warm
    Juice( the warm water help to speed up
    The process , our body isn’t supposed
    Ti have everything cold) no pain or problems

  88. gauravon 21 Jun 2012 at 1:33 am 88

    Dear Josh, I am diagnosed with two 5 mm gallbladder polyps and a 8 mm kidney stone and my doctor wants to remove it. Would this method be useful for me??? looking forward to hear from you soon. Thank you

  89. Kellyon 22 Jun 2012 at 2:41 pm 89

    All I can say is WOW! For a while now I’ve suspected that I had gall bladder stones; I spent 7 hours in the local hospital emergency only to have a 3rd year doctor student tell me I had an ulcer. I finally saw my family doctor and even he agreed that based on my symptoms, I was a text book Gall Bladder victim. He sent me for an ultrasound which I still havn’t done. I found this article a few days ago and decided to give it a try. This morning, at 6 a.m., I took my third glass of salt water. After my first “movement”, nothing came out and I was extremely disappointed; I thought it was all a waste of time. Immediately after my second “movement”….I knew a few stones had passed. I was shocked when I looked down !!!! 2 of them HUGE; I just couldn’t believe it. Then….it was just one massive passing after another; by time I was done, I easily must have passed a few hundred stones. I’m so thrilled with the outcome that I’m determined to do this in a few weeks all over again. I’m sure I have more to get rid of. THANK YOU FOR THIS ARTICLE !!!! IT REALLY WORKS !!!!

    Suddenly she has typical GB stone simptoms.She is going tomorrow for check up.

    Hi Josh,
    I mix my Epsom salts in apple juice, the apple juce softens the stones and it helps to get the drink down ! I did this flush a year ago and felt so much better but I did not do it again two weeks later but this time I will .
    My doctor said she never heard of this flush and sent me for another test and the second test came back and said there were less stones then the first test ! So I really should have done the flush again in the two weeks but I will this time . There liver stones ,then go to the gallbladder and then are called gallstones,so we need to keep cleaning them out so everything runs well. Happy Cleansing ! Judy

    Hi Josh,

    I am from India my mum underwent several tests and scans she had jaundice and to minimize that, a stent was inserted to expand the pipe. Later after PET CT Scan we found out that mum has 1.67mm sludge and her gall bladder is thickened.
    Doctors here are suggesting for radiology where the sludge can be dissolved but there is no guarentee that it would not come back again.

    Please advice if your above remedy could help my mom come out of this trauma.

    when you said “drink 1/2 cup of warm water with 1
    Entire lemon squeezed into it. Do this
    For a week or as long as you need.” is that ALL you eat/drink for a week?

    Hi Josh,
    Hope you are doing well. I first determined that something was amiss, when I began having digestive symptoms about 8 months ago. It started with gas, bloating, burping, a very full feeling after eating just a few bites of food, and weight gain.
    My Gastroenterologist did a liver and gallbladder scan a year ago, after a routine colonoscopy found some renal(kidney)and hepatic(liver) cysts. The scan showed no gallstones, but did show some sludge. A follow up scan this year showed no gallstones or sludge, but my symptoms have gotten worse, and the liver test showed an increase in the size of my liver cyst.
    My symptoms have recently escalated to nausea, increase in bloating, loss of appetite and repeated pain and burning sensation in the upper right area, just under my ribcage. I have had a cat scan, MRI, pancreatic cancer screening, and blood tests. Those were all normal. I just jad a HITA scan, but haven’t gotten the results yet.
    I have a followed a great, low fat diet for years, but I did eat a lot of candy. I have since cut that out. I take 2 tbsps. Bragg’s apple cider vinegar with organic apple juice 3times daily before meals. I heard that this is great for alkalinizing the body, helping digestion and has many benefits. I feel better when I take this.
    I take a digestive enzyme capsule before each meal. Per my Gastro Dr., I am taking a liver supplement. It is Liver Rescue 4+. He said the milk thistle in it can help clear the toxins
    in the liver. I do not think he would approve of the liver flush.
    I have not had one of those awful attacks, but I am concerned this may happen. I am not willing to have surgery to remove my gallbladder, if this is suggested by my Dr. I have heard too many people say they still have pain and continue to have stones after surgery. They pile up in the liver.
    There are so many contradicting opinions out there. Some swear by the olive oil cleanse; some say it does not work, and the green stones are simply the result of oil mixed with the salts. There are so many remedies- how do you choose the right one? There are herbal, Chinese herb, lemon cleanse, apple cleanses, the olive oil and Epsom salt flush, and sooo many more.
    I am so confused at this point. Can some of you please shed some light on this, with your
    results doing the olive oil cleanse. I am afraid of getting really ill, getting a stone stuck in a bile duct, etc….
    Please help!

    experiences doing the cleanse?

    I am afraid to do a cleanse with oil and Epsom salts.

    Is there a way to eat the oatmeal at night and start the flush in the morning? People do work night shift…anc should the flush be done when you have fever?
