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!
