Gallbladder Flush – Clean your Gallbladder without Surgery

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 šŸ™‚

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 šŸ™‚

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

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

  2. Johnon 07 Oct 2010 at 12:43 am 2

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

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

    Awesome, glad to hear it, Lois šŸ™‚

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

  6. Victoron 03 Nov 2010 at 7:33 pm 6

    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.

  7. cindon 27 Nov 2010 at 11:14 pm 7

    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.

  8. Heatheron 17 Jan 2011 at 3:47 am 8


    So after reading all of positive results on flush, it has finally convinced me to try it. I’m not sure if Iā€™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,

  9. Innaon 19 Jan 2011 at 12:33 am 9

    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

  10. Andyon 07 Mar 2011 at 3:12 pm 10

    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?


  11. Nickon 20 Mar 2011 at 2:42 pm 11

    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.

  12. Flipperon 20 Mar 2011 at 3:58 pm 12

    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!

    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!!!!

  14. LC Kon 26 Apr 2011 at 3:22 pm 14

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

  15. Kristieon 02 May 2011 at 6:56 pm 15

    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

  16. SMHon 06 May 2011 at 3:57 am 16

    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!

  17. SMHon 06 May 2011 at 3:58 am 17

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

  18. Joshon 06 May 2011 at 12:32 pm 18

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

  19. DSLon 09 May 2011 at 5:15 pm 19

    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?

  20. Joshon 09 May 2011 at 5:40 pm 20

    DSL – I think I ate that morning…

  21. Christinaon 09 Jun 2011 at 1:24 pm 21

    hey Josh where can i get Epsom Salt At??

  22. Tinaon 10 Jun 2011 at 9:55 pm 22

    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?

  23. Estheron 15 Jul 2011 at 3:55 am 23

    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.

  24. Robbyon 19 Aug 2011 at 3:18 pm 24

    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?

  25. marcellaon 29 Aug 2011 at 5:35 pm 25

    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.

  26. Karlon 06 Nov 2011 at 12:13 am 26

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

  27. Cynthiaon 25 Nov 2011 at 4:10 pm 27

    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.

  28. jwayneon 01 Dec 2011 at 11:23 pm 28

    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

  29. Sandra Phillipson 09 Dec 2011 at 5:07 am 29

    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!

  30. Sandra Phillipson 28 Dec 2011 at 4:12 pm 30

    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,

    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

  32. Hemanton 03 Mar 2012 at 4:34 pm 32

    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.

  33. Lunaon 13 Mar 2012 at 8:47 pm 33

    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.

  34. Terry larsonon 05 Apr 2012 at 2:32 am 34

    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.

  35. Pamelaon 11 Apr 2012 at 5:43 pm 35

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

  36. Yvonneon 22 May 2012 at 2:22 am 36

    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.

  37. Yvonneon 22 May 2012 at 2:26 am 37

    I am not a grandmother of
    12 and have done this for my kids
    And grand and no one else has had to

    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

  38. gauravon 21 Jun 2012 at 1:33 am 38

    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

  39. Kellyon 22 Jun 2012 at 2:41 pm 39

    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 !!!!

    Hi everybody,
    My(our) problem is the following.
    My wife has an ovarian cancer returned with one growth in the liver.
    Suddenly she has typical GB stone simptoms.She is going tomorrow for check up.
    Do anyone has an idea,can we still consider flush after the check up if it is really GB problem?

  41. Judith Blasioon 08 Aug 2012 at 10:21 pm 41

    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

  42. Anaon 17 Aug 2012 at 11:52 pm 42

    Hi Josh, I did all the procedures that you have write, is 9:37am(Australia) I went to the loo only once y it was not waterly, during night I felt all this funny noises in my belly and also heartburn but as I said nothing happen anyway what I would like to know if I can do it next week or do I have to wait a bit longer.

Thank you

    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.

  44. Katon 04 Nov 2012 at 6:44 pm 44

    Hello josh. Is the tablet a 500 mg tablet? I found a L-Ornithine with 500 mg.

  45. poonam saxenaon 12 Nov 2012 at 4:10 pm 45

    Hi Josh, Thanks for article, its really informative.I feel that i have gallbladder sludge coupled with kidney stone apprx 2.8 mm. Nearly a year ago i had operation to remove uterus as treatment of fibroid. wanted to know if your suggestions would work with my case without any complications.

  46. neverdoneaflushon 21 Nov 2012 at 1:15 pm 46

    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?
