Oh no…I have a large 22mm stone found in my gall bladder! I’m trying out a natural remedy to remove the gallstones…

Important ! – Please note that this natural flush may or may not work for you and that you will do this at your own risks. I will not be held responsible for any problems you may have after the flush. I am sharing my experience here for the benefit of those who want to try this flush first before they opt for a gallbladder removal surgery. If you feel MORE pain during the flush, please go to the hospital immediately for treatment! 

Added on 08 November, 2012 – Please read comment # 321 below for interesting lab or scan results after doing this flush

Added on 16 November, 2012 – You can read up the FAQs on this natural method of removing gallstones at Master atan’s Forum and post your questions THERE  as well. He has done this natural flushes for 20 years already. :idea: 


Two images of my gallbladder (the round dark shape) from my ultrasound scan taken on 20 April, 2009. The white crescent on the left image with two X’s is the gallstone measuring 2.23 cm inside the gall bladder. The one on the right is my gallstone  from another view.

Added on 11 May, 2012 – Please note that I did not go back for another ultrasound scan after having completed about 5 to 6 gallbladder flushes by now because of 2 reasons :-

1. I don’t want to pay for the second ultrasound scan

2. My gallbladder feels perfectly alright now, without gastric attacks and no pain. I can eat sour, spicy and rich/creamy foods without any problems for 3 years now.

3. This physical proof is enough to convince me that I am alright ===> after my first gallbladder flush, I no longer feel any sharp pain in my gallbladder region when I press down hard and deeply into that area. Before my flush, there would be a sharp pain even when I brush lightly into that general area.

Added on 11 May, 2012 – some blog visitors here had also tried out this flush, with most reporting success. However, there was one case whereby the person had to go for surgery in the end.

11 May 2012 – I have uploaded below  2 gallbladder ultrasound scans of blog visitor, Corina from Romania, and she was very nice to allow me to post her pictures showing 2 gallstones measuring 15.5mm.  and 16.3mm (see comment # 173 below). She has successfully done a natural gallbladder flush a few days ago. In a few months, she will go back to her doctor for a follow-up ultrasound scan of her gallbladder  to see if her gallstones are still there and she will upload her pictures here for us to see.

** My original post written on 20 April, 2009 ===>

Good afternoon, dear friends :D

Last night, I suddenly had severe gastric pains and my husband had to take me to the hospital. After some examinations and an ultrasound scan, it was confirmed that I have a large gall stone in my gall bladder – it is 2.2 cm or 2/3 inch long. :shock:

After further consultations with the gastro surgeon, I was told to go for surgery to remove my gall bladder. He said this was the only solution as the gall stone is too big. I have never liked the idea of surgery and my only times spent overnight at the hospital were when I delivered my four children. :roll:

Nevertheless, this sudden development in my health has got me really all shaken up and I am really terrified of this surgery. My husband and I have yet to set a date for this proposed surgery as we want to find out more information on gall stones and the repercussions of have my gall bladder removed.

We did asked the surgeon what will happen to me when I don’t have a gall bladder…he didn’t give a satisfying reply and we are now under the impression that he just wants to make some money out of this surgery. :roll:

In a short while, I am going back to the hospital (it is a private hospital) to have a gastro scope done of my stomach…the surgeon wanted to be sure that my stomach is ulcer free and check for some bacteria there.

In the meantime, I have spoken to a few people – Master atan, my healer friends Yoong Cheh and Chimmal – and thus far, they have all suggested that I delay the surgery to remove my gall stone first and in the meantime, I can follow some proven natural remedies to get rid of my gallstones. They have some friends who had carried the natural remedies successfully….

So, I am going to try this Natural Remedy of Removing Gallstones (READ THAT POST for more feedback from people who have tried this natural gallbladder flush)  for about 3 rounds (I was told the second round is even better in getting rid of gall stones)……hope you can wish me luck and success in doing this and I don’t have to go for surgery.

I will keep you posted of my gallstone elimination development following the Natural Method here and if it works (no, I should stay positive and tell myself “IT WILL WORK”), you would know this is indeed a good and effective way of removing gall stones.

I have copied my earlier post of this natural remedy of removing gall stones here for your easy reference…it uses Apple Juice (can add fresh apples also), Epsom Salt and Olive Oil..


Good afternoon, dear friends :D

Yesterday, Master atan, a retired healer and fengshui Master, posted at his Dhealing forum HERE  a way of removing gallstones that is safe, natural and tested – without going for any surgery. I was very impressed by this method and thought I would share it here with you as I’m sure many people will benefit from this technique.

Master atan said that gall bladder stones today can be easily removed by operation and the so called laparoscopy, a process using laser to remove the gall bladder stones. But there are still ways we can take other than to undergo these expensive treatments, surgeries and medicines to help you cured of gall stones.

Master atan had tried this method himself and has recommended it to many people to follow, advising that this is good and safe.


Gallstones may not be everyone’s concern but may lead to cancer. We all have them (big or small, many or few). “Cancer is never the 1st illness. There are a lot of other problems leading to cancer. I came across some materials stating that people with cancer usually had stones,” said Dr Lai Chiu Nan of  Taiwan.

One symptom of gallstones is a feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal as if you can’t digest the food. If it gets more serious, you feel pain in the liver area.”

Dr Lai offers the apple juice treatment which is good for those with a weak liver. Liver and gallbladder are closely linked.

1) Drink 1 glass (250ml) 100% apple juice 4 times a day for 5 days. 1 glass at breakfast, 1 glass at lunch, 1 glass at dinner & 1 glass before going to bed. It softens the gallstones. Eat normally.

2) On the 6th day, skip dinner. At 6pm, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) with a glass of warm water. At 8 PM, repeat the same for purging purpose. It helps to flush out all solid stuff. It also opens and dilates the gallbladder ducts. At 10 PM, drink half a glass of olive oil mixed with half a glass of lemon juice. The oil lubricates the stones to ease their passage. Lemon juice helps to extract the stones out from gallbladder .

Soon you will purge again. This time you can find greenish stuff floating in your toilet bowl, if you have gallstones. “You may want to count them. I have had people who passed out 40, 50 or up to 100 stones.” as told by Dr Lai. “Even if you don’t have any symptoms of gallstones, you still might have some. It’s always good to give your gall bladder a clean-up every now and then.”

Something more to share by Master atan -

“Dr Lai Chiu Nan’s “6 Days Apple Juice Treatment” works wonderfully to remove gallstones in a natural way. I came to know this more than 10 years ago and many of my friends had benefited from this treatment without going for operation.

Mr AT almost had his gallbladder operated in the hospital in 1996. When we met up just a few days before his operation appointment, he gave it a try when I told him about this apple juice treatment. The doctor was surprised of the disappearance of gallstones when Mr AT went to the hospital for a re-examination. He passed on this good news to his friends and relatives so much so that whenever a person wanted to buy Epsom salt from the pharmacy in that town, straight away the sales personnel at the pharmacy knew that it’s for the removal of gallstones treatment.

Mr LMK also drank the apple juice and passed out the gallstones. Mr AY called me and asked for the apple juice treatment for his Indonesian worker who refused to go for operation. According to Mr AY, his worker suffered great pain and could hardly walk. One week later, Alan called again saying that his worker still suffered the pain. I told him to bring his worker to see Mr LMK who could give a testimonial to him so that he would repeat the 6 Days treatment one more time. Later I received good news from Mr AY that his worker was able to walk without pain after passing out the gallstones. No operation was required. Mr LMK also told me that the worker thanked him many times whenever they met each other in town for the encouragement and confidence given to him.”

Master atan said that in order for it to be more effective, drink green apple juice. You can buy 100% pure apple juice from supermarket in 2 liters packing. The treatment needs 6 liters only (4 x 250ml = 1 liter per day). Nevertheless, do include apple juice as one of your daily drinks. It’s good for you, he said.

There you have it – a really safe and natural way of removing any gallstones. I’m going to try this out to see for myself and then get my husband to do it also. A word of caution though, I believe we should be aware of the high sugar content of consuming so much apple juice over the 6 days and it is best to cut off all other sources of sugar intake during this treatment period. Also, since it is spanned over 6 days and we are expected to purge a few times on the 6th day, it is best to start this treatment on a Monday or Tuesday…leaving the weekend free to be spending more time in the toilet.

I wish you all good health always,

choesf :D

        Hi there, dear cal1

        I’m sorry to hear that you have a large gallstone :sad: ….if you prefer not to go for surgery, you can try out this natural gallbladder flush. I just completed my 6th flush yesterday and I felt great. If you have any queries on this natural method of removing gallstones, you can post them here and I would be glad to answer them. :wink:

        Please note that anyone doing this natural cleanse will do it at their own risk. :wink:

        Please suggest

      • 6

        Hi there, dear muskaan :D

        I’m really sorry to hear of your gallstone :sad: – wow, it is very large. So far, I have not had anyone reporting gallstones more than 30mm. So, there is no information on whether it is safe to try this natural flush or not given a gallstone that large.

        Perhaps, you can try other methods to reduce your gallstones – I have read (but have not tried them myself yet) on the Internet that radish juice, Gold Coin Grass Tinctures, Chinese Bitters, can help to reduce gallstone size.

        I’m not sure if you can have this option where you live, but I heard laser can be used to break up the gallstones into smaller pieces in the gallbladder for passing out, without having to remove the gallbladder.

        Good Luck!

        Thank you for your feedback on trying the various remedies to reduce or flush gallstones – I’m sorry they didn’t work for you. :sad:

        Other than going for a gallbladder removal surgery, the other option of sticking to a low fat diet is a good practice to follow, like you said. :idea:

      Dee said,

      My gallstone is 9cm. Will this flush work for a 9cm gallstone?

      • 12

        Hi there, dear Dee :D

        There is no guarantee of success of this flush as the experience/results will vary for everyone. It may take a few flushes (not just one or 2) before that stone is flushed out. Drinking the apple juice over 5 days softens the stones for passing out.

        You will have to weigh the risks involved in the flush and see if you dare to try the flush. :wink:

        Just drink apple juice for 5 days! no water just pure apple juice! Better if you can drink 2 liters of it per day for 5 days. Sure that thsi big gallstones of yours will totally soften for easy passage.

      hi, have a question bout the natural way treatment? my mom has a gallstone and her doctor wanted to remove it bec according to him thats the only option! we want to try this method, just wanna clarify if how many session that we need, is it just the one week session or we need to re-do it again? if so, how long the interval after the first week session?

      hope that you will response asap! thanks and God Bless.

      • 16

        Hi there, dear ConcernedSon :D

        I often recommend those who found out they have gallstones to do this flush 3 times in 2 months, and thereafter, to do a flush every 6 months or so – i.e. if they feel better after the first few flushes. She can rest for 2 weeks before doing the next flush. :idea:

        Good Luck on her flush!

        Hi there, dear Pam :D

        So far, only 1 person here went back for an ultrasound scan and found that her stone was still there, but reduced slightly in size. I am not sure how many flushes she did before going back for the scan.

        The rest of the people who had tried this flush never came back to tell me they had gone for another ultrasound scan…nor did they tell me that this flush didn’t work. Well…there was one person who still experienced pains after the flush and in the end, he/she went for a gallbladder removal surgery.

    Day 1 update (after I found out I have a large 2.2cm gallstone)

    I am a total optimist today because after consultation with Master, Chimmal and some friends, my husband and I have decided that I will not go for the surgery to remove my whole gall bladder…instead with Master’s good natural and safe remedy of removing gall stones and with Master’s and Chimmal’s healing prayers for me, I will recover quickly from this.

    It is now midnight here – thus far today, I have consumed slightly more than 1 litre or 4 cups of unsweetened apple juice. In between, I also ate whole red and green apples. Dr Lai said green apples are better for this treatment.

    Even my Economy Rice Stall lady boss, who is a nice lady in her 60′s and into health remedies, told me she has done this Natural Gall Stones Removal treatment and she even told me that even for healthy people, it is recommended that we do this treatment every 2 years to maintain a healthy gall bladder and kidneys.

    On the scope done of my stomach, the doctor found a small polyp there and a sample tissue was taken for examination to see if it is benign or malignant (cancerous) but the nurses told me it is likely to be benign. I will only know the results when I see my gastro-surgeon this Saturday..and I will definitely keep you posted of the results.

    Just now a friend read this post here and phoned me up – she said she also had an ultrasound scan and stomach scope some time ago and found out she had a 0.8 cm gall stone. Her doctor advised her not to go for surgery since she didn’t have any pains (I never had any pains before and now, only some gastric pains on Sunday night). Instead her doctor also asked her to try the Apple Juice/Olive remedy. She said she did one round of the treatment but she didn’t pass out any gall stones….but, a scan done on her gallstone later showed that it had reduced in size. She has 2 friends who were in much pain and were about to go for surgery when they tried this Natural Cure for gall stones and it worked for them effectively, too.

    I had very light, small meals throughout the day – a small bowl of plain porridge with some vegetables, 2 cups of Milo with oatmeal, and some multigrain biscuits. There is still a lot of bloating in my stomach and I am burping often. However, good news, I think I am slimmer today due to lesser food intake but I could be wrong! :lol:

    I will keep a daily update here on my progress. Good Night! I’m going to bed now.

    With best wishes for good health,

      Day 2 Update

      I have found the apple juice too sweet for my liking and have started to have the cup of apple juice diluted with water. Today, I didn’t eat whole apples because I am starting to get tired of apple juice and apples. :lol:

      Breakfast was a cup of apple juice, 2 half boiled eggs, and a slice of unbuttered soft, white bread (the kopitiam type).

      Lunch was a simple Rice Vermicelli with Chicken and Mustard Greens Soup, but it seems that I can’t finish it all at one go. I divided the portions into two and I had the other one during dinner.

      Yesterday, my energy levels were low because my total daily caloric intake has reduced because I am eating fruits most of the time, and very light, non-oily meals. But today, I think my body is adjusting to this routine and I don’t feel as tired.

      By bedtime, I had to have a cup of plain Milo (no milk nor sugar added) with a few tablespoons of oatmeal added … I was feeling hungry and couldn’t fall asleep with a growling stomach. Anyway, with my history of gastric pains, it is better that I eat something.

    Oh my God!
    Dear Choesf,
    this is a terrible news you have given. I wish you a speedy non surgical recovery. I am so sure that this apple remedy will work. Stay way from the surgery as long as it is safe to do so. You are right that doctors these days do go after money, more than the patients well being. Don’t worry, our prayers are with you.
    You are my inspirational icon and I know that you will come out of this trouble with flying colors.

    Did you not go for a second opinion?? Like with another hospital, another specialist??

    Please take care.

I am now on Day 2 (just finished, it is just past midnight here). A few friends have told me their friends had also had success with this natural remedy to remove gallstones and I am really optimistic about it. Thank you again. :D

But I will be sure to keep everyone posted here of my progress. I intend to go for another ultra-sound scan to check on the situation of my gall stone(s) once I finish the apply juice treatment. :D

    Day 3 Update -

    Today, I progressed to plain white rice porridge with some light accompaniments like tofu, vegetables and pork steamed in egg (a savoury custard). I have not been cooking all this while and I got takeouts for my family. So, during lunch time, I will buy 2 portions of the white porridge and side dishes – one of them I kept refrigerated until dinner time.

    Dinner for my family was Domino’s Pizza yesterday and today, it will be McDonald’s…while my husband is not too happy about having fast food for dinner, the kids are all grinning and happily tucking into their meals.

    For me, these days, my appetite is completely gone and I am eating just for the sake of eating. :lol:

    Day 4 Update -

    For some weird reason, I started to develope double vision and a very bitter taste on my tongue this afternoon. Thought it must be due to the heavy medication that my gastrosurgeon prescribed me for my gastric pains. So, I couldn’t send my children to school in the afternoon and my husband had to take half the day off to do that for me.

    I continued to drink my apple juice with each meal and by today, I would have finished more than 4 litres of apple juice.

    Dinner for my family was a takeout of Hainanese Chicken Rice…..for me, it was white porridge with some stirfry bittergourd slices, tofu and 2 small pieces of chicken.

    By today, my house is getting more untidy…luckily, my second daughter has been taking over some of the house chores for me…otherwise, my house would be like a pig’s sty! :roll: :lol:

    I spent most of the time napping because of my double viision and some “whoozy” feeling….

    Day 5 Update -

    Tomorrow is the BIG DAY – the end of my Gallbladder Cleanse, and so, I went to the pharmacy to buy 1 box of Epsom Salts..it costs only RM5.80, and stocked up on more Granny Smith apples and lemons.

    Today, I started to switch to drinking fresh Granny Smith (green) apples because Dr Lai Chiu Nan (the Taiwanese doctor who came out with this natural remedy of removing gallstones) said green apple juice is better.

    This morning was my scheduled appointment with my gastro-surgeon to find out about the results of the polyp found in my stomach during a scope done last Monday. Phew! The tissue of my stomach polyp was found to be benign (non-cancerous)…what a relief. I have overcame this stage safely and now, I will have to see if tomorrow, I can get rid of the gallstones naturally.

    I also found out that the double-vision, bitter taste found on my tongue and the grogginess were caused by the strong medication and antibiotics prescribed by my doctor for my gastric pains..and stomach. I’m glad I only have 2 days more of the antibiotics to go and know that those uncomfortable side effects will go away soon.

      Hi, dearest Rose! :D

      Seems you are online now with me here? Cos you are replying as soon as I have finished my updates… :lol:

      You think the bitter taste is a sign of the gall bladder cleansing is working with the apple juice? Now, that’s good news, too for me. I haven’t checked with Master atan yet on this bitter taste on my tongue.

      You know, this bitter taste is so bad that it is every where in the mouth – tongue, throat, salive….and everytime I swallow my saliva, I taste this awful bitterness….it is like taking a bitter pill that has been grounded into powder and slowly tasting it in my mouth…without any help of water at all! :shock:

      I tried drinking more apple juice to remove the awful taste…but that didn’t help…and I am really getting tired of the taste of apples.

      Then, I chanced about my box of dried California Raisins and now, I eat one raisin at a time, slowly, so that the bitterness is overcome..and so far, this is working for me. Phew!

      I will keep you all updated of my progress…

      After this, I will try to see if I can post a picture of my ultrasound scan showing the shape, size and position of my gall stone.

      Many hugs back,

    Day 6 Update – The Gallbladder Cleanse :D

    Today is the big day. I am feeling relieved and yet worried because it is the end of my natural treatment to remove my gallstones. Relieved because it has been a long 6-day period of drinking a lot of apple juice. Worried because I am hoping that this natural remedy will work for me and I don’t have to for for surgery to remove my whole gall bladder. Worried also because I don’t know how much purging there will be.

    It is now almost 5 pm, just an hour to go before I drink the glass of water with 1 tsp of Epsom Salt (magnesium sulphate). There will be no dinner for me today.

    I was told that the Epsom salt tastes awful, but I am used to taking bitter Chinese herbal medicine, so this is not a problem. My worry is – how to drink the olive oil with lemon juice? The idea of drinking oil (125 ml or 1/2 cup) sounds really yucky to me.

    Breakfast was a cup of unsweetened Milo and 2 slices of wholemeal bread without any butter nor jam.

    My last meal was lunch at 1..30pm, consisting of a bowl of plain white rice porridge, with a cup of tofu, 2 small pieces of chicken and some stirfried cabbage.

    Today, up until now, I have been sipping apple juice and drinking ample water…about 1 litre or 4 cups of apple juice, and 1 litre of water.

    Last night, my mouth tasted bitter all the time, until this morning.

    I will stop here for now, and will try to update more afterwards.

    Dear Choesf,

    Let’s keep our fingers crossed. Everything will be O.k. You have spent these past 6 days, following a very strict regime of treatment. I am proud of you. 125ml olive oil mixed with lime juice sounds a little bad, but what the hell, if it cures you then it is worth it.

    Good luck to you and please keep us posted.

    Ah, my dearest ladies! :D

    Am I glad I came in here for a moment – your very encouraging words and motivation sure gave me a big smile on my face as I am typing this. Thank you so much! :wink:

    It is now 8.39 pm Malaysian time…I took my first glass of water with 1 tsp of Epsom Salt at 6pm sharp. Around 7pm, I started feeling and hearing a lot of “gurgling” or “bubbling” sounds in my stomach. The Chinese would describe these sounds as “glee glee gloh gloh”. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Heheh, I have got aromatherapy going on in the bathroom to soothe my nerves….thus far, other than the stomach activity, there is nothing happening yet.

    At 8pm sharp, I took the second cup of water with Epsom Salt….and there is more noise and “activity” in my stomach. By now, I am getting a bit worried as there is no purging yet….I have slightly more than an hour before I take the olive oil and lemon juice….so, I am keeping my fingers crossed and lots of reading materials ready! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Oh, about the taste of Epsom Salt, there is just a faint taste, something like baking soda and so, it wasn’t bad at all.

    Okay, I shall stop here for now and will come back with more updates shortly..

    With love and hugs,

    choesf :D

    P.S. I am now going to take out the lemons from the refrigerator and my orange juicer to get ready for the 10pm “drink”… :roll:

    happyhomemaker88 said,

    Dearest Rose! :D

    I forgot to ask you earlier – did you have any gall stone symptoms and how did your doctor treat your gall stones with? I’m just curious because I am looking at all options other than surgery for treating this problem. One of my friends just told me this afternoon that her mother had nausea continously for many years after her gallbladder was removed. :shock:

    Phoenix188 and Felicia told that their countries (France & Singapore respectively) have the facility whereby laser is used to break the gallstones into smaller sizes so that they can pass safely through the bile duct and excreted. But I have asked around, so far I could not find this procedure available in Malaysia. :roll:

    Okay, I’m going to my room to rest now…

    With love and hugs,

    rozalia said,

    Oh, Im so sorry to feel you so worried! :(

    No, I didn’t have stones but a” lazy” gallbladder which caused me troubles in my early 40s for several years: I had painful crisis often, couldn’t eat cabbage,cucumbers,spices and fried meat.Every crisis was followed by several days of migraines and nausea.

    First I got treatment, but I really get well after changing my diet.I started to eat only fruits ( abd yes, mostly apples) until 2pm, then salads with grilled or steamed meat, low fat cheese and lots of teas.I keep this way of eating for more then 15 years now and I feel good,no gallbladder problems.

    At this moment I can eat cabbage and cucumbers and spicy Chinese Food, but I never deep fry the meat; I put it in the oven and I also reduce a little bit the quantity of spices you recommend in your recipes….and it tastes great, believe me. :wink:

    I hope you get rid of your stone by now and I’ll find you tomorrow well and happy.

    happyhomemaker88 said,

    Many te pups cu drag, dearest Rose! :D

    Thank you for sharing your experience…now I know there is such a thing as a “lazy” gallbladder. :wink:

    It is now 1.15 am….I don’t think I will be able to sleep tonight. A note to anyone doing this Gall Bladder Cleanse ===> please schedule the purge on a Saturday! :roll: :lol: I have to drive my kids to school early this morning.

    At 10pm sharp, I took one cup of equal portions of olive oil and lemon juice. I gave it a good stir until they don’t separate …..took a deep breath…held my breath and gulped the whole thing down in seconds.

    Well, it didn’t taste as awful as I had thought it would be – the lemon juice masked the oily taste and smell.

    After that, there were “many storms” brewing in my stomach and the sounds made were going slowly down the intestines. There was a bloating of stomach experienced (I am still feeling it) and a lot of burping. I’m not sure if this is a natural effect of this Cleanse or it is my stomach working up.

    Still no purge yet…..I waited and waited….. :roll:

    By midnight, I was getting hungry and I was worried that my gastric pains would work up. Dr. Lai’s instructions said to skip dinner but never mentioned anything about having food at midnight.

    I decided to eat and only managed to have half a cup of unsweetened Milo and half a slice of wholemeal bread because of the bloated feeling in the stomach. Because of the sourness of the lemon juice, I am also having a heartburn starting. In a short while I will take some antacid tablets for it.

    A warning for those with a history of gastric pains like me – do have all your medication ready when you do this cleanse in case you get heartburn or gastric pains.

    At 1 am, the first purge expected from this Cleanse that I have been waiting for happened. I don’t know when will the next one be coming… :roll:

    I’m just going to get some antacid now and try to catch some sleep. I have also applied some good Chinese medicated oil on my whole abdomen to help with the wind problem/bloatedness…..

    Bye for now….

        how big was your gallstone.

      • 55

        Hi there, dear cal1 :D

        My gallstone was 2.2 cm long, but it was elongated in shape…so, it was not 2.2cm in diameter. However, I was told that the singular gallstone shown in the ultrasound scan may actually be a clump of smaller gallstones.

        Yes, it is understandable to fear that the gallstone may get stuck in the bile duct. With this method (Dr Lai’s Apple Juice Method) of drinking apple juice consistently over 5 to 6 days, the apple juice helps to soften the gallstones. Most of the gallstones passed out are fuzzy and soft…not hard at all – someone here even tried mashing some gallstones with a stick and they were soft.

        Also, the bile duct can expand to accommodate the larger gallstones. It is just like a birth canal, whereby a woman can deliver her baby vaginally.

        There are some methods in the Internet that don’t use the apple juice at all and they go straight to the flush immediately – you can check out those methods. The gallstones shown are really hard, like stones. They may get stuck and cause pain.

        The lemon juice forces the softened stones out of the gallbladder.

        If you don’t want to go for surgery, you can try this natural method of removing gallstones. Read up as much information you can over the Internet and then decide which option to go for.

        For me, I would rather try what I can first to save my gallbladder and avoid the surgery. If the gallstone gets stuck during the flush and you feel pain, just go straight to the hospital and remove your gallbladder anyway. :wink:

        With best wishes,

    Update at 8.10 am (Day 7)

    To all of you that have been following my Gallbladder Cleanse for the last few hours ===> whoooo…hoooo, Dr. Lai Chiu Nan’s natural remedy to remove gall stones REALLY WORKS!!

    I had another purge at 3am….but still no gall stones sighted. Went to bed at 3 am.

    Had another bigger purge at 6am and this time, there were 9 dark greenish pellets of gall stones passed out. The 4 largest ones were about 0.6 cm big, whereas the rest were like 0.3 cm. :shock:

    Please note that there is no pain at all in the purging process.
    You can see some pictures of the gall stones excreted (not mine) from this website.

    Wow, I was really amazed by the last results, and I’m so thankful to Dr. Lai for introducing this to us. A friend told me that Dr. Lai was here in Malaysia to give some health talks. She is Taiwanese born and moved to America for a few years. Later, when I have more time, I must look up her website on the Internet to learn more of her unique but safe treatment…I heard she has some natural remedies for cancer, too.

    Right now, I am heading back to bed for a nap. I am all tired out.

    With best wishes for good health to all of you,

    choesf :D

    P.S. After what I have been through I would personally recommend Dr Lai’s natural and safe method of removing gallstones to anyone. :wink:

      Oh…also it is normal to have the gallbladder feel a little tender today. :wink:

    Hi Choesf,

    Wow! Now that is some good news you have given. Let us thank GOD.
    So is it all over now? Will you be going for a second ultra sound?

    How are you feeling now? Mentally you must be so relieved and your family as well. I am so happy to see that you are alright now. All thanks to Dr Lai’s magic therapy.

    Once you settle down in the normal routine with full zest and gusto, I have a request to make. Do you know of any therapy, which is natural and good for an enlarged liver? My mom has been detected in her ultra sound that her liver is a bit enlarged, although the doctor has said not to worry about it. I have not done any research yet on the net about the causes or repercussions of having a large liver. One thing is for sure that whenever she eats anything from outside or anything a bit oily, she gets a sure shot stomach problem like gastro pain and diarrhea, sometimes even vomiting.

    Anyway this is if you have time. Right now you and your family must celebrate that the crisis has passed. I think doing this treatment once in 2 years is a good idea. I will have to find where I can get epsom salt in Chennai. Although I must admit that until it is required no one will to it by choice. Still it is good to know a remedy that works 100%.

    Thanks to you, I know about this remedy now.

    Have a speedy recovery.

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there, dear Manila :D

      Yes, my family is so relieved that I got some of the gallstones out…even my husband said he wants to do this method of gallbladder cleanse, too, as soon as possible. I plan to rest my gallbladder for about a month and then do a second cleanse …to see what are the results, if there are more gallstones. I think there should be more. A friend was saying that the first time he did this cleanse, the gallstones were small and few, the next times, there were more and larger ones. I think it depends on how each of us have our gallstones formed inside our gallbladder and which ones get out through the bile duct first.

      I’m very sorry to hear about your mom’s enlarged liver…and I will ask around for any proven natural remedy for that…and let you know. :wink:

      Take care and have a wonderful week!

        Hi there, dear Geordie :D

        Thank you for letting us know that there is such a good and easy method of removing gallstones from your duct. I’m glad your gallbladder was not removed. Is it a microsurgery or laparoscopy of some kind?

        I did ask my doctor about just removing the gallstones without removing the gallbladder – he said doesn’t do that. I guess he just wants to make more money and make it an easier surgery for himself. :roll:

        By the way, he said it was a day care surgery with the removal of the whole gallbladder with a laparascope and just a few small cuts, and I could go home after the surgery.

        That’s why I decided to take a risk and try out this natural remedy of removing gallstones instead – no way is the doctor going to remove my gallbladder if I can help it. :lol:

    Hi choesf!

    How are you feeling? I really appreciate your willingness to share your gall bladder cleanse experience with everyone. And you have a wonderfully supportive family and doctor’s which make it a bit easier (though I’m sure this experience wasn’t easy) to do the cleanse.

    I always wondered what this was like and it’s so good to hear about it from someone I can trust. I was told by my doctor last summer that I have a small gallstone, but that it’s nothing to worry about. But, a friend told me about this natural procedure and, to tell you the truth, I was and am a little scared to try it. But, after reading your account, I’m going to try it when school ends for me in a week.

    I think the part that most worries me is the heartburn. Augh. That’s the worst.

    Thank you so much for writing about this! I hope you are feeling well today.

    • 68

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there, dear rizo :D

      I am feeling much better, slowly getting back to my daily routine after 10 days’ rest at home…thank you. I’m glad the sharing of my experience here has helped to you to get over some of the fear of doing this cleanse. After checking from a few persons who had done this cleanse, I understand that those of us that have some form of stomach problems to begin with..such as gastric pains, acid reflux, bloatedness…we will have more “discomfort” at the stomach after drinking the olive oil and lemon juice.

      After seeking Master atan’s advice (he is also a healer other than a Feng Shui Master), I am starting my second cleanse on this Sunday. This time round, I will be better prepared and perhaps, I can fine tune the cleanse technique for better effect.

      Some of the different things that I would do for my second cleanse are these -

      1) time my cleanse treatment to end on a Friday, so that I have the weekend to rest ..hence, that’s why I am starting this Sunday

      2) instead of gulping down the whole cup (250 ml) of olive oil and lemon juice in one go….I will take sips of it every 5 to 10 minutes. This is to prevent the oil from coming up as the oil will float above the lemon juice in the stomach, thus giving me an “oily” yucky feeling.

      3) to counter the nausea that I may feel from the olive oil, I will have some pineapple juice ready to sip.

      4) to counter the heartburn from the lemon juice, I have got some stronger antacid tablets ready

      5) I was restless and walking up and down during first cleanse after drinking the olive oil/lemon juice…..but I read from another site, that it is recommended that we lay down on our right side of our body in bed…so that more of the olive oil/lemon juice will flow into our gall bladder….and so, I will be resting in bed on my right side.

      6) rather than eating solid food at night when I get hungry, I will have some soy bean milk drink ready for sipping. I can’t go hungry or my gastric pains or wind will act up again.

      7) since it was mentioned by Dr Lai that green apples are better, I have ordered a box of Granny Smith apples from my grocer and I will be taking mainly green apple juice or eating them.

      8) my second daughter, Tasha, is also doing the cleanse together with me….we are just curious how is the condition of an 18 year-old teenager’s gall bladder.

      Someone told me his second cleanse resulted in more and larger gallstones removed. Hopefully, this is the case but every person I spoke to so far have different results…so, it’s pretty subjective. One person said he purged one time only throughout the whole night. Someone said she didn’t purge out any gallstones after the cleanse but her ultrasound scan done after the cleanse showed that her gallstone was smaller in size.

      One of the good effects of the gallbladder cleanse reported by many people was an increase of energy and certainly, I felt more energetic despite being on a low-calorie, low fat, soft diet. I was told my stomach problems like wind, bloatedness and indigestion will go away once my gall bladder is cleaned up.

      Hope you will have a smoothsailing and successful gallbladder cleanse! :wink:

      Do have a good weekend!

      With best wishes,

        happyhomemaker88 said,

        Hi there and welcome, dear Janine :D

        I did a second cleanse last week with Day 6 (Purge Day) ending on Friday. Surprisingly, this time around…I didn’t have any of the purging expected….no discomfort nor wind nor bloatedness in the stomach..nothing. I was feeling very normal except for some hunger pangs! I didn’t get the urge to go to the toilet at all until 24 hours after I started taking the Epsom Salt to purge. This was really strange indeed. This time round, I had drank mainly fresh green apple juice and ate whole green apples. :roll:

        I spoke with Master atan and he said this is likely to be a good sign that my gall bladder condition is better. But he told me to wait for at least 1 or 2 months before I do my third cleanse to give my body a rest for now.

        So, I would be doing a third cleanse sometime end of next month because I am also eager to get the 3 cleanses over with so that I can have another ultrasound scan done to check on the condition of my gallbladder, whether the large gallstone has reduced in size, or even better, has gone. I will report the results of my 3rd cleanse here also.

        Do have a lovely day!

        I forgot to add earlier that my 18-year old daughter did the gallbladder cleanse with me last week…I was curious as to how a teenager’s gallbladder would fare. While I didn’t purge at all, my daughter purged a lot – about 8 times in total from 11 pm after she took the Epsom Salts/Olive Oil/Lemon Juice….until noon the next day. But alas, she was too busy purging and didn’t observe if she passed out any gallstones at all. :roll: :lol:

        But I gathered that she must have purged out some toxins, perhaps some fat and she gave her gallbladder and liver a good cleanse indeed.

        Perhaps, on my third cleanse next month, I will get my 23-year old daughter to do it together with me and then see how she fare. :wink:

    Dear choesf,
    I’ve completed the 6 days process TWICE with a gap of 2 days in between. after my second time, i did the ultrasound test and my doctor told me that i still have MULTIPLE TINY STONES in my gall bladder.
    From time to time, I’ve been reading your posts. Infact, your information and guidelines helped me a lot. But you didn’t mention about your ultrasound reports after 1st and second time process. if you didn’t know the gall stones condition, then what was the reason of repeating the process. are you doing this processs without consulting your doctor? As for myself, the doctor told me not to do it for the third time before 3 or 4 months. did you discuss this matter with any of your friends or with the doctor.

    By the way, is it possible to have direct contact vai email with doctor Lee?


    • 78

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there and welcome, dear Waheba :D

      Thank you for sharing your gallbladder treatment experiences. Did you count how many gallstones were passed out for those 2 treatments? I was told usually the small stones passed out are about 0.2 cm.

      No, I have not gone for my second ultrasound scan because I thought I would need to do at least 3 treatments/cleanses before we will see a marked improvement in results. I was told that the second time and after, there would be more gallstones passed out. But I guess a lot depends on each individual on the success of each treatment.

      I did my cleanses with a lot of advice and guidance from many friends and healers who had gone through the experiences themselves..all with 100 % positive results. I was advised to do my first and second treatments with a two-week gap, and the third one to be 1 to 2 months away. Thus far, the only doctor I have consulted regarding my gallstone had scared me a lot and he discouraged me on the apple juice cleanse. However, for one of my friends who did the cleanse, her doctor had actually encouraged her to do the cleanse to remove her gallstones naturally instead of going for surgery. So, in my opinion, different doctors will give different advice but it all boils down to whether they want to earn a lot of money out of our situation by asking us to go for surgery. :roll:

      I will be seeing another doctor for my second ultrasound scan.

      I’m afraid I don’t have any contact with Dr. Lai but you can Google about her – do a search for “Dr. Lai Chiu Nan”. :wink:

    Hi Choesf,

    How have you been? Sorry I could not write to you the last month as I was out of town. I came back on 31May and guess what?? Since then I have been down with chicken pox. The poxes are drying now but it will take another 10-15 days before I get all clear. I hope I don’t get horrible scars.

    Hope you are much better now.

      It’s good to see you here again. I am well and happy, thank you. Hope you had a wonderful trip out of town. :wink:

      I’m so sorry to hear you are down with chicken pox…hope it is not too uncomfortable for you? I have heard that the chickenpox experience is more difficult on adults than children. May you have a good and clear “complexion-ed” recovery from chickenpox. :D

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there, dear babe :D

      I just finished my 3rd gallbladder cleanse yesterday with positive results. I will be posting my review of this cleanse shortly.

      For this last cleanse, I also did not get any urge to purge on the night of Day 6 (Purge Day), unlike the 1st cleanse. I didn’t want this cleanse to turn out like the 2nd cleanse (when there was no purge at all). So, I had a contingency plan, i.e. to follow another method (not Dr. Lai’s) which is to continue drinking 2 times the Epsom salt solution and 1 time the olive oil/lemon juice on the morning of Day 7.

      This further step helped me to go to the bathroom 2 times in the afternoon of Day 7 and I could see more gallstones passed out – about 3 big ones and a few smaller ones. As a result, this time, I had to go without food (fast) for 28 hours but I didn’t feel hungry at all. Today, I am feeling great and energetic, much lighter and not tired at all.

      Now, I am gathering the courage to go to the hospital soon to do a 2nd ultrasound scan of my gallbladder to check on the condition of that 2.3 cm gallstone. I’m excited and scared at the same time to know the results of the scan. I will be sure to let you all know the results. :roll: :lol:

      Do have a lovely weekend!

        Is there any danger of stones getting caught in the gallbladder?

      • 84

        Hi there, dear Serafina :D

        There is no guarantee that large stones may not get stuck in the bile duct – readers here are advised to try out this natural remedy of flushing gallstones at their own risks.

        Information yielded from an Internet search explained that the gallstones are made soft with the drinking of apple juice daily for 6 days, thus making them very soft and manageable to be passed or squeezed out through the bile ducts. :idea:

    I am not a typical visitor here but came acroos the home remedy for gallstones while searching the web like everyone else. Would like to point out that I am just a nobody that needed help and was to poor to go to the doctor. I am not affiliated with any organization that forced me to write this. I am like you and just needed help. So I tried this apple juice,apple,epsom salt, virgin olive oil + fresh sqeeze lemon juice cure figuring I had nothing to lose. I must say that I was skeptical and had many doubts as to if this would work but I commited myself to trying and stuck with it for the full six days. Everything went well up until the last step with the oil + lemon juice. I started to have very severe pain after drinking it but just relaxed and tried to muscle through. Nothing was happening that night after the drink but pain. After I woke up the next morning the pain was mostly gone and I finally purged. Not sure why it took all night but it did. When I did purge I found many stones and was delighted to see my efforts paid off. I was so happy. Not sure if all my stones purged but in about a month I think I will do it again. After 3 times of this I will check with a doctor to see if I was successful in my efforts. So if you are reading this and wondering if it really does work I can tell you without a doubt that it worked for me. I am NOT a doctor so try at your own risk but for me it was well worth it. Have cured myself for less than $20 and for someone that lives paycheck to paycheck it was an organ saver. I am writing this to give thanks to the doctor that came up with this remedy and to the people that made this website. For if it wasn’t for all of you I would be having a surgery on Monday.

    Thank you all once again and have a nice day.

      Thank you very much for sharing your experience on using Dr.Lai’s method of removing gallstones naturally. I’m really glad that it has worked for you, too and you managed to pass out some gallstones.

      I’m embarassed to say that I have yet to go for my second ultra-sound scan to check on the condition of my large gallstone….I am scared to know the results. :oops: But I can say that after 3 times of gallbladder cleanses, I don’t have gastric pains, bloating nor indigestion anymore. I know I have to go for that scan again to say for sure that this cleansing method works…but let me gather my courage to that scan first and I will be sure to inform everyone here of my results then.

        Sheila Vives said,

        I am not so sure either. I would like to “go natural”, but my large stone is in the neck of the gallbladder. It moved and got worse as a result of my ultrasound. It has moved again and I am concerned of it popping out of the neck and causing a severe attack. If I lubricate it using this method, it could squeeze out the wrong way I fear. Wish I had a medical expert to discuss this with in more detail.

      • 89

        Hi there, dear Sheila :D

        I am really sorry to hear of your large stone stuck in the neck of your gallbladder :sad: – that sounds like a really difficult and painful situation. I hesitate to recommend this natural method of removing gallstone due to the risks involved in your case. :oops:

        However, perhaps you can post this question to Master atan at his Dhealing Forum – he is a healer and may be able to give you more suggestions on what to do with your gallstone. :idea:

        Thus far, most doctors will not recommend this natural gallbladder flush.

        Good Luck!

      I’m sorry to hear that your father has gallstones, too. Try this method and see if it works for him as well. In Malaysia, the Epsom Salts can be purchased from pharmacies. Hope you can find them in your pharmacies. It’s different from iodised salt – not salty at all and it tastes weird (awful is the word in my experience). You can add a bit of apple juice to mask the weird taste. :wink:

    Hi there.

    I came online today after having some gallbladder symptoms. Google is a mighty tool online, and here I am reading your old blog entries. First and foremost, I must say I love all your tips on this blog, so I am definitely bookmarking it.

    Second, I will be trying this cleanse to see if I can feel an improvement in my own digestion. My mother suffered through gallstones and her gallbladder removed before she became 40 years of age.

    I am currently 22, overweight, and experiencing a continuing bout of digestive problems that started when I was 17. I live in a high-anxiety environment with my stern father, but that’s another story. I’ve already had treatment for ulcers consisting of green tea, ginger, and honey. Honey is a good antiseptic, so it helped heal the ulcers as the honey soothed my belly.

    One concern I have is the thought of eating green apples. They tend to be too sour for my sensitive stomach, but I eat red apples all the time. So, starting tonight, I’m going to eat them more often and try to get some organic apple juice at the store tomorrow morning.

    Thanks for posting this. I’m very optimistic, so I hope that helps too with the remedy.

    • 95

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there and welcome, dear Ty :D

      Thank you for your kind comments. I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing some digestive problems and a stressful environment at your young age. :sad:

      Yes, being optimistic is the driving force in anything in life and I’m glad you are that. You are right, if you have a sensitive stomach, it is best to take either raw red apples or apple juice.

      Up until now, I no longer suffer from stomach bloatedness, indigestion nor gastric pains and it has been about 5 to 6 months since I last did the gallbladder cleanse. I even did a little test one day when we had a celebration of sorts at home and I had a lot of oily, calorie-laden foods, cakes with cream…..certainly a meal that is too rich for me – but I wanted to “push” my digestive system to see how it acted up. Wow, was I relieved that I didn’t get any of the bloatedness feelings nor indigestion that night.

      I am quite sure that the gallbladder cleanse will clear up your digestive problems. I was told that the gallbladder cleanse can get rid of acid reflux problems, too.

      For removing stress, anxiety and irritablility, as well as refreshing your energies, here is a simple remedy :-

      Salt Baths

      My family members do Salt Baths/Showers regularly whenever we feel stressful or cranky or lethargic and they work wonders to refresh us. Try it and see for yourself. Beginners are recommended to do salt baths twice a week for one month, thereafter, just once a week or when necessary. :wink:

      Good Luck with your cleanse! :D

      Hi there and welcome, dear vipan gupta :D

      The gallstones are passed out when we follow the instructions in this post on how to drink the apple juice for 6 days, and in the evening of Day 6, the lemon juice, epsom salts, olive oil all play a role in getting rid of the gallstones (if they are not too big to be passed out through the bile duct). The side effects would depend on the individuals.

      Good Luck with your gallbladder cleansing!

      Hi there and welcome, dear blusky :D

      On Thursday last week, I had another severe case of gastric pains and a throbbing/aching gallbladder and I had to go to the hospital in the middle of the night again. Luckily, the pains went off after 12 hours and by now, my gallbladder is fine. I am now on Day 3 of Dr. Lai’s method of the gallbladder cleanse..with the purge day scheduled for Friday. This will be my fourth cleanse in the last one year, with the last one done more than half a year ago.

      I’m afraid I am not an expert in this gallbladder cleanse :oops: … I am just sharing my experience here so that people know there is this natural method of removing gallstones before opting for the gallbladder removal surgery. I would suggest that you choose a weekend for your purge day (Day 6 of the Cleanse) so that you have adequate time to rest (and purge). Throughout the 6 days, try to go for light meals. Different people have different results from their purge but most reported feeling better after.

      Some people, including myself, has an ache around the gallbladder after the purge…perhaps from the effects of the stones going through the bile ducts? For people with serious and multiple gallstones, they will need to do a few cleanses before going for a scan to check on the gallstones.

      If at anytime you feel pain in your gallbladder region, it is best to check with a doctor.

      Presently, I am testing out a vegetable soup which is supposed to cure almost anything, including cancer…it can help remove gallstones, too…but I’m not sure if this is the soup that is causing my gallbladder to ache this time. You can read more about the Miracle Vegetable Soup HERE.

      Good Luck!

        What is the best diet for gallstones? is there a way to prevent getting the pain with what you eat etc and what are good pain relievers? And thank you for sharing :)

      • 102

        Hi there, dear Susan :D

        Yes, the fears of the gallstones getting stuck in the bile ducts and of any pains experienced during the flush are very real. So, for me, the fear of going for a gallbladder removal surgery was worse than those and therefore, that helped me to be strong to try out my first gallbladder flush. :wink:

        So, you can say that the natural method of flushing gallstones or of reducing gallbladder pains is for those who have nothing to lose, and will try anything just to prevent from having their gallbladder removed.

        The best diet for maintaining a healthy gallbladder is to stick to a high fibre, low fat food intake. For me, I still love to eat rich foods (especially roast pork belly, fried chicken, rich cakes, Chinese fried stuff, Curries, etc) and so, I have to do this natural flush regularly to flush out the new gallstones. :idea:

        Drinking radish juices or soups regularly helps to reduce gallstone sizes. However, I have no natural pain relievers – just strong medicine from the doctors.

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

    happyhomemaker88 said,

    Good morning, dear friends :D

    Wow, I have good news to report – there is another natural method to break down or treat gallstones – it is called “Dr Tateshi Kazu’s Life Extension Miracle Vegetable Soup.”

    Last week, I had severe gastric pains and I thought it was my gallbladder acting up again after one year of no digestive problems at all. Last year, I found out I had a 2.2cm long but thin gallstone in my gall bladder scanned and the doctors wanted me to go for surgery to remove my gallstone. :cry:

    I didn’t want the surgery and I opted for Dr. Lai’s Natural Method of removing gallstones (the 6 day treatment). I did 3 times her gallstone purge over a period of 3 months and in total, I had passed out 7 large stones (half a cm size) and about 10 smaller ones. After that I didn’t have any stomach problems and I could eat anything sour or fattening.

    As I suddenly developed gastric pains last week, I decided to do another gallbladder cleansing. I started my apple juice drinks on Sunday and purging was scheduled for yesterday.

    Also, I noticed that since I started on the miracle vegetable soup, there was some slight aches in my gallbladder and there was a feeling of fullness there, sometimes uncomfortable. So, I thought the gallbladder flush would be good.

    Yesterday, I looked over the Internet and I was very happy to find out that white radishes and the juices can help to break up gallstones. So, I was praying hard that the vege soup should have help break up my gallstones since I started drinking it this year.

    After I had drank the Epsom Salt solution and Lemon Juice/Olive Oil last night, there were stronger twinges of cramps felt in my gallbladder region, not painful, just cramps.

    The lemon juice is to contract the gallbladder to squeeze out any gallstones, while the olive oil is to lubricate the bile ducts. The apple juice I took over 6 days is to soften the gallstones so that they are easier to pass out through the ducts.

    At night, there was just 1 purge or diarrhoea and it was only by the 4th purge this morning that I noticed a lot of little dark green specks that had been passed out. No whole stones, big or small, like the last cleanses that I had done last year.

    The greenish stuff (almost powderfy-like) floated together on the water and stuck together with an area measuring a total of 3 cm by 8 cm, on the water surface.

    I was really surprised and immediately I thought it must be the vegetable soup that helped to break up my gallstones in to smaller sizes or make them softer.

    Perhaps that was why I kept feeling a “fullness” in my gallbladder…anyway, I am also glad to report that my gallbladder feels great this morning, with no fullness nor cramps experienced. It is like when we experienced a period of constipation, and when we finally have a good bowel movement, we feel good and relieved. :lol:

    That’s all for now. Hope you have good experiences with the soup, too.

    With best wishes,

    choesf :D

    Hi there,
    I did the 6day cleans but on day 7 Still no purge yet! is this normal what I should do?

    • 105

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there, dear blusky :D

      I’m not sure why we don’t purge in all the cleanses. :oops:

      So far, I had done 4 cleanses, with the last one over the weekend. I noticed that for my 2nd cleanse, I didn’t have any purging/diarrhoea and so I couldn’t see if I had any gallstones passed out at all. I was quite disappointed then. :roll:

      So, for my 3rd cleanse, I modified the technique to as follows :-

      1) instead of the 1 teaspoon of Epsom salt, I increased the amount to 1 tablespoon (or 2 tablespoons as recommended in some websites)

      2) by dawn, I still didn’t have any purge, just a normal morning bowel movement. Right after that, I took another dose of Epsom Salt (1 tablespoon) and a glass of water. Exactly 2 hours later, I took 1 cup (250 ml) of lemon juice and olive oil. No solid food was taken still. A few hours later, I managed to purge out a few larger gallstones (I think it was 2 or 3) and some smaller ones. But it was a tiring cleanse as I didn’t have any solid food for almost 24 hours.

      I was much relieved when my last cleanse over the weekend resulted in a purge at 11 pm on Day 6, and 3 purges on the morning of Day 7…with only the last purge showing a lot of dark greenish powdery stuff, not whole stones. It was like liquidfied/powdery gallstones. I only took the Epsom salts, lemon juice and olive oil the night before and I didn’t have to repeat it in the morning.

      If you are on Day 7 today and you didn’t have much solid, oily food…I think you can go for another round of Epsom Salts/Water followed by the Lemon/Grapefruit Juice/Olive Oil drink in 2 hours. Hope it will make you purge.

      Good Luck!

        happyhomemaker88 said,

        Hello there, dear blusky :D

        I’m very happy for you that you got to purge and found a gallstone that floats. I can’t remember which type of gallstones (you can read about them over the Internet), but they say the stones with cholesterol will float in the water, while the heavy type of stones will sink. Some said to use a colander or wire mesh to catch the gallstones as we pass them out, but I still can’t do so as I find it yucky. :oops:

        From what I have read, on Purge Day, we are to stop taking solid foods after 1 pm….and even for the lunch meal, take light foods, preferably non-oily and not meat based. I had a bowl of rice porridge with some vegetables. After 1 pm on Day 6, I just had apple juice and a light vegetable broth. This is to make sure that our gallbladder will contain a lot of bile still inside until we take consume the purge drinks. The full gallbladder will help to push the gallstones out when it contracts to counter the lemon juice/olive oil. If we have a heavy meal or had oily foods, the bile would have been used to digest them or something like that.

        I remember now that during my 2nd cleanse, I had a big plate of Indian curry rice with lots of meat and vegetables for lunch. I purposely had a large meal as I thought I would be fasting for the next 18 hours or so. :oops: That was the time that I didn’t purge at all. :lol:

        So, for the last week, I ate very little meat and I had more frequent but small, light meals. I had good purge results on Saturday. Phew! Be sure to drink the apple juice as that helps to soften the gallstones so that they won’t hurt our bile ducts when they go through to be purged out. I continued to drink the apple juice throughout Day 6 to stop my hunger pangs.

        Good Luck with your next purge! :D

    Dear Choesf,

    I read your post and comments with interest. My question is — have you had any subsequent ultrasound scans to see if these cleanings have actually helped with the gallstone you were diagnosed with on April 20, 2009 ? I read that you feel several “gallstones” came out during your treatments but without having a subsequent ultrasound scan, how will you know for sure if these treatments are actually helping ?

    thank you


    • 111

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there and welcome, dear Justin :D

      No, I didn’t have a subsequent ultrasound scan to check on my gallstones. At the time when I wanted to go, there was an outbreak of the H1N1 flu and the hospitals were crowded with potential cases.

      After I did the natural gallbladder cleanse 3 times last year (all within 3 months of each other) and once just last month, I didn’t get anymore symptoms of bloatedness, indigestion, and most importantly, pain in the gallbladder region (except when I was drinking the Miracle Vegetable Soup which can clear gallstones, too) and so, I feel those treatments are helping.

      Right now, when I press very hard into my gallbladder region, I don’t feel any more pain there. Before I was diagnosed with gallstones, I used to have pain there whenever I have a massage and she massages over that region. Back then, I didn’t know it was gallstone pain and I thought it was some muscle that I must have pulled and it didn’t heal.

      My insurance doesn’t pay for an ultrasound scan if my urologist doesn’t ask for one, and I am not seeing my urologist because he is going to ask me to cut off my gallbladder. But if I am not having anymore gallbladder problems, I am not seeing him. I do not want to pay for the ultrasound scan myself. :oops:

      Do have a wonderful weekend!

      With best wishes for good health,

      choesf :D

      P.S. I didn’t “feel” the gallstones being passed out – I saw them floating in the water after the purge and they are dark green in colour and in various sizes. Google has some images of gallstones.

      Hi there and welcome,d ear Estrella :D

      I am sorry to hear of your gallstones and gallbladder attacks – they are quite painful. I empathise with you completely as I am also a very paranoid about surgery to remove my gallbladder – I will absolutely not go for surgery unless my gallbladder is really inflammed and I am in a near death situation. :lol:

      At this point when you are doing the cleanse, you just have to take the apple juice. One way to motivate yourself to do so is this – think that the apple juice and the cleanse is an alternative remedy for you to try to avoid surgery! Think – apple juice cleanse or surgery and I know you will choose drink the apple juice willingly. :wink:

      Good Luck with your gallbladder cleanse!

    Hi, Happy,

    I am a 33 year old male and have read through everysingle post and can say god bless you for putting all this information and your experiance of the gall stone problems.

    I have been diagnosed with a 19MM ie 1.9cm gallstone.
    The Dr’s as usual have advised me to have surgery ie keyhole and I too just like yourself am very skeptical of having this surgery.

    I have seen this 7 day process and have some quesitons like:

    1.Will this treatment break the stone i have ?
    2. I work full time can this be done while working
    3.How many cleanses do I need..

    One last thing which really gets me is why dont DR’s Suggest this in the first place?

    I would really appreciate it if you could find some time to answer the questions
    Eagerly waiting for your response.

    Thanks a lot

      Hi there and welcome, dear Nirav :D

      I’m sorry as I can’t say for sure this technique will break your gallstone for sure and how many cleanses you would to clear your gallstones :oops: because each individual is different and they get different results. I have some friends who never purged anything the first time. Even for myself, my 4 times of purges got different results each time. The only way is to try for yourself and see but only if you are not having any gallbladder infection or are in great pain.

      I, too, was asked to go for the laporoscopy/keyhole method to remove my gallstone. But I don’t like surgery. Doctors don’t recommend this natural method usually because they want to make some money from our surgery?

      Hope you are able to get rid of your gallstone naturally. Good Luck!

    hi Happy,

    Am I correct in saying I need to do what is said below

    1. For the first five days, take four glasses of apple juice every day. Or eat four or five apples, whichever you prefer. Apple juice softens the gallstones. During the five days, eat normally.
    2. On the sixth day, take no dinner.
    3. At 6 PM, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) with a glass of warm water.
    4. At 8 PM, repeat the same. Magnesium sulphate opens the gallbladder ducts.
    5. At 10 PM, take half cup olive oil (or sesame oil) with half cup fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and drink it. The oil lubricates the stones to ease their passage.
    PS. 1cup=250ml, ½ cup lemon juice=3 lemons (aprox.)

      Hello again, dear Rav :D

      Here are the replies to your questions :-

      1. Correct.

      2. Correct…but you can drink sips of apple juice if you suffer from hunger pangs like me.

      3. Yes.

      4. Yes. I started taking 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salt for my 3rd purge because I didn’t purge any stones during my 2nd cleanse.

      5. Correct. Immediately after this, go and lie down in bed, lying on your right side (your left side is on top). This action helps to push the bile and bile stones out from the gallbladder. I did this the 4th time/cleanse last month and I had great results. I didn’t even need to drink another round of Epsom Salts or Olive Oil/Lemon Juice the next day at 6am.

      If you still didn’t have diarrhoea or watery stools or purge any stones by 8am the next day, you can drink the Epsom salt solution at 8am, then drink the Olive Oil mixture at 10am. This should guarantee you some purging.

      Good Luck! :D

    Katie said,

    I’m curious about the ability of the bile duct (which is normally only 4 to 7 mm I’ve read) to stretch enough to pass gallstones, especially larger ones. My concern is that the cleanse would work and the gall bladder would purge stones, but I’d wind up with a blocked bile duct. Do you have any information about that?

    • 125

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there and welcome, dear Katie :D

      You are right – there is a degree of concern for blocked bile ducts. Anyone trying out this remedy to remove gallstones will do it at his or her own risk. :wink:

      When this method is followed closely, the apple juice softens the gallstones, making them easier to pass through the bile duct during purge day. Also, the lemon juice/olive oil combo drink is to make the bile duct expand somewhat to allow the passing of the stones.

      Some people have tried this method out with success, some don’t, unfortunately, and surgery becomes necessary.

    hi.. are you done with your ultrasound? may i know if the gallstones are really flushed? i am do having the same problem with the rest here, i do have 1.4cm gallstone and the doctors want me to schedule the operation asap. but im so afraid of it..

    • 129

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there and welcome, dear edielwebb doliquez :D

      I’m very sorry to hear you have a gallstone problem, too. I have not gone for a repeat ultrasound scan to confirm if my gallstone is gone or not, because I have to pay for the scan if I ask for one when I don’t have any gallstone pain problems.

      I remember last time before I found out I have the 20-cm gallstone, everytime I rub my abdomen over the gallbladder area, just below the right breast area, I would feel a sharp pain, At that time, I thought it was a pulled muscle that I had and after the ultrasound scan, I realised it was the gallstone “poking” against the gallbladder when I press that area deeply.

      Since I had done my gallstone flushings using Dr Lai’s method, I no longer feel any pains when I press my gallbladder. I hope it is a sign that my gallstone is gone already.

      A word of precaution I must emphasize here … it is risky to do Dr Lai’s method to flush out gallstones naturally and everyone here must do it at their own risk. For me, it was a better alternative than having to go for surgery and remove my gallbladder.

      I’m sorry to hear about your dad’s condition – may he have a safe and smoothsailing surgery next week!

      Most of the time, I buy the bottled apple juices (instead of juicing whole green apples) – usually the 2.4 litre Berri brand, which I think is imported from Australia. Other brands are okay, too, but be sure to buy those that says “no sugar added” as then it is pure apple juice, which is already very sweet naturally already.

    morningstar said,

    Dear choesf,

    take another Ultrasound just to make sure that the apple therapy works. The result must be: YOUR GALLSTONE IS STILL THERE. It’s not gone anywhere. Cystic duct has a diameter of only 4 mm and your gallstone has a diameter of 2 cm. By logic, it is IMPOSSIBLE for your gallstone to go through the cystic duct to go out to the small intestine.

    What is the definition of “apple therapy works” for you? Does it mean:
    1. It doesn’t give any more pain so far


    2. It really can remove your gallstone out of your gallbladder, out of your body system. Completely. So, you are FREE of any gallstones.

    Please, don’t make a fool of your readers here. Your gallstone is still there and from what I read, there is a big possibility that there will be other formation of gallstones again in your gallbladder in the future.

    • 136

      happyhomemaker88 said,

      Hi there, dear morningstar :D

      Thank you for your comments.

      My post on the natural gall bladder cleansing is meant as an alternative method to remove gallstones and many people have gone through it successfully, with their gallstone pains gone. You may be right, I may still have my gallstone as only an ultrasound scan can confirm that it is gone. However, since I posted on my experience about 2 years ago, I no longer have any pains in my gallbladder area. Previously, whenever I massage the area below my right breast bone, I will feel a sharp pain and before my ultrasound scan taken, I had no idea that I had a gallstone.

      Since i first did the apple juice cleansing, I no longer feel any pains when I press deeply into my gallbladder area. I have done about 6 apple juice cleansing in the past 2 years to keep my gallbladder healthy.

      I hope the readers here will consult their doctors about their gallstone problems and only do the apple juice cleanse at their own risk. I also strongly recommend for those who have many gallstones detected or have severe pains that cannot be reduced with medication to be careful with doing this apple juice cleanse. When one is faced with the ultimatum of having the gallbladder removed, one will worry and try to see if anything else can be done to remove the gallstones in another way.

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

    Hi, in year 2009 doc found that I hv 2 gall stones 6.3mm & 5.5mm. Doctor said to leave it as I hv no symptom (no pain). Last Sat I did my routine medical check-up, the stones is increasing 8mm & 9mm and also one more new stone (total 3). Again doctor ask me to leave it if no symptom.
    Actually this apple treatment I got it in 2009 but I dare not to try it. I did consult my doctor, he said the stones may stuck, ask me not to try.

    But another doc that I see (general doc) said I should try this apple treatment as she got good comment from her patient.

    A nurse who pass me the medical report also said that she got 2 patient who actual ally try this treatment, they hv reduce their stones sizes, she is the one who gave them this treatment (she actually photo state & giv me too).

    After the general doc & the nurse said I may give it a try, and also have read all ur comment, it seems like this treatment is works for most of the ppl. I think I should try it because I don’t want wait until I hv symptoms or any worse case happen to my gallbladder.

    • 142

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      Thank you so much for sharing your experience/information here. I’m sorry to hear you have gallstones, too, and hope that you will benefit from the apple juice therapy. :wink:

      Most doctors will not advise us to try the apple juice treatment and will scare us into avoiding it so that we will opt for surgery. I am not denying that there may be risks of the treatment not working successfully or the stones may be stuck in the bile duct. But if one has gone through the excruciating pains from the gallstones and has to face the only medical solution of surgery to remove the gallbladder, one will dare to take the chance of trying this apple juice treatment to remove the gallstones. No one else will understand why people who have gallstones like me are willing to try this method. :roll:

      I’m very happy for you that your nurse recommended you the apple juice method. I have a friend whose doctor also recommended her to search the Internet for such information.

      Here’s what I gathered so far on how the apple juice treatment works effective in removing our gallstones naturally by passing them out of the body :-

      1) drinking apple juice regularly over the 6 days period will soften the hard gallstones, thus making them softer on the outside at least to pass smoothly and easier through the bile duct. I noticed that most of the gallstones I purged out are dark green and soft looking like mini cotton balls…thus confirming that the apple juice did soften the stones.

      2) the Epsom salts start the purging and cramping process to purge out everything in our stomach. Because we are purging so much like having diarrhoea, bile has to be produced by the gallbladder and this encourages the stones to be passed out as well. Ever noticed how some people vomited out so much and many times until they vomit out bile? Same principle with purging also.

      3) the lemon juice also helps to enlarge the bile duct to allow the stones to pass through easier

      4) the large amount of olive oil that we consume encourages the gallbladder to produce bile to deal with the oil. Because we drink so much oil, the gallbladder has to work harder to push out more bile and so, gallstones are pushed out

      Some tips which I have gathered from my own experience (however, different people may experience differently) :-

      1) on purge day, eat a very light meal with as little meat as possible for lunch and try to finish eating by 1 pm. This will leave very little food in the stomach to be passed out during the purge and so, it’s easier to see the gallstones either floating or at the bottom of the toilet bowl. There is only olive oil and water being passed out in addition to the gallstones.

      2) if you are hungry, try sipping a little apple juice at a time just to stop the hunger pangs :idea:

      3) after drinking the lemon juice and olive oil, immediately go to bed and lie down on your right side, with your legs curled up to your chest. This sleeping position puts more pressure on the gallbladder, thus making it work harder in producing bile/stones. I noticed when I did this, I passed out more gallstones.

      4) some people, me inclusive, purge out more gallstones in subsequent apple juice treatments.

      5) if you didn’t purge nor pass out any gallstones by dawn, do not be disappointed by the results – take another dose of the Epsom Salt at 6am (morning) followed by the olive oil-lemon juice combo at 8am.…you should start purging shortly after that. On one occasion, I think it was my 3rd or 4th apple juice cleansing, I didn’t have any stomach bloatedness nor even have the urge to go to the toilet at night, I drank another round of the Epsom Salts, olive oil and lemon juice and I had a very “satisfactory” purge with gallstones passed out after that.

      Some foods that can reduce or remove gallstones naturally :-

      *** daikon or white radish. I noticed when I was drinking the Tateshi Kazu Miracle Vegetable Soup, the gallstones that I had passed out much more mushy looking. An Indian friend told me that consuming about 2 tablespoons of freshly grated daikon 3 times a week can remove kidney stones. I am thinking that should work for gallstones, too. :idea:

      Good Luck with your Apple Juice Cleansing! :D

      choesf :D

      • 143

        P.S. I wish to reiterate here that I didn’t have a 2.2 cm wide or round gallstone – it was 2.2 cm long but narrow (like a curved stick). So, I am guessing that it was easier to break up into little pieces and got purged out naturally! :wink:

    gooday said,

    Hi choefs,

    I am curious why do ppl will purge out more stones as our scan only detect a few. As per your case, doctor only scanned 2 stones in your gall bladder but you purge out more than 2 !!! Did you find out why?

    • 145

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      Someone told me that my gallstone could have been made up of a few smaller stones joined together or either the gallstone broke into smaller pieces during the purge and after I had drank the apple juice over 6 days. I was told to do this apply juice cleansing regularly as gallstones will continue to form in the gall bladder. Talking about this, I am way overdue for an apple juice cleanse…my husband reminded me a month ago already. :oops:

      Okay….it’s going to sound gross :oops: here but I will describe the purging process so that people doing this cleanse for the first time will get some idea :idea:

      When the sensation is there for us to go to the toilet for a bowel movement :-

      1) the first purge is like a normal bowel movement in diarrhoea condition, i.e. that is when we pass out the food we have consumed during lunch time and before. No gallstones will be passed out yet.

      2) as we get subsequent purges, there will be lesser and lesser food solids/wastes … and the gallstones would have started to move down the intestines to be passed out.

      3) usually by the 3rd purge, we are actually just passing out water, olive oil ….and very little food wastes…this is when the water in the toilet bowl is tinged with olive oil floating on the water, which is not very dirty at all, and we can easily see really dark green, round stuff floating, too – gallstones. Those are not actual gallstone sizes as the gallstones had expanded after been softened by the apple juice that we drink and the absorption of lemon juice/olive oil. So sizes will range from 1 mm as the smallest … to larger ones. So, the minute gallstones may not have been detected by the scan we took.

      5) one of my friends who is very obese did the apple juice cleanse with me a few years back. She used a potty to do her 2nd and 3rd purges (after the food solids have been passed out already) and she actually heard clanking sounds of the gallstones hitting the bottom of the potty. :shock:

      Hope this helps :idea:

        P.S. The link below has some very good information on what else to do to remove gallstones naturally (other than the apple juice cleansing method). There is a Chinese herb called “Kum Cheen Choe” in the Cantonese dialect or “Gold Goin Grass” in English translation. It can be purchased very cheaply at Chinese Medical Shops here in Malaysia. I usually but RM1 worth once in while to boil as a tea for my family to drink to cleanse the urininary system. Read the information below on how to use this herb. :idea:


        Some quotes found there :-

        Alternative to gallbladder surgery

        An alternative to surgery and gallstone removal by chemical dissolution is gallbladder flush. Traditional European folk remedy
        recommends the use of olive oil and lemon juice to flush the gallstones. A major concern is that if the stones are too big, they
        may not easily come out or may even get stuck on the way out. Traditional Chinese medicine recommends the use of “Gold Coin Grass (GCG)” (botanical name: Herba Lysimachiae, Chinese sound translation: Chin-chien Tsao) to crush and soften the stones so that they will come out slowly. This tends to take a relatively long time. However, centuries of experience has shown that Gold Coin Grass (GCG) can be taken safely without side effects. In most cases, alleviation of gallbladder pain is experienced within a few days of using Gold Coin Grass (GCG) in tincture form. This is a significant benefit. I have found from my own experience and that of many of my clients that a combination of the following steps to be the most effective and efficient – Julia Chang, MSc.

        This lady started doing the natural gallbladder flushes in 1900 and she has written a lot of information on natural gallbladder cleansing. :idea:

    Hi choefs, did any of your friends actually confirmed that the stones that they purged out is the gallstones or is something else? 😳

    • 148

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      If you meant whether anyone brought the specimens they passed out to the lab to confirm if they are gallstones …. then nobody did, including myself. The obese friend I mentioned just now who passed the heavy, clanking stones into a potty, she had a good and close look at the them and she said they looked just like stones, dark green ones. I don’t think people would fork out money just to test if they are really gallstones, as long as they feel better and no pains are experienced anymore, they would assumed that the gallstones that had been hurting them had been passed out already.

      Check out the “Images of Gallstones in Stools” and see samples that were passed out, not removed from surgery.

      The Curezone Gallstones Digest website has many reports of people doing the natural cleansing or flushing of gallstones from year 1999. I read somewhere some time ago but I can’t find that site anymore that someone brought his stones to the lab and it was confirmed to be gallstones.

      Maybe someone here who knows someone working in a lab can help to confirm if those stones passed out are indeed gallstones :?:

        Some information of gallstones :-

        Gallstones are crystalline bodies that are formed inside of the body by accretion (“growth or increase in size by gradual external addition”) or concretion (“a spherical or ellipsoidal nodule formed by accumulation of mineral matter after deposition of sediment”) of normal and abnormal bile components.

        The largest single makeup of gallstones are cholesterol stones, which are generally green, but have been found to be white/yellow in color. Cholesterol stones account for approximately 80 percet of all gallstones, and are composed primarily of cholesterol.

        The remaining twenty percent is composed of pigment stones. Pigment stones are small, dark stones that are composed of calcium salts that can be found in bile. Both cholesterol stones and pigment stones make up gall stones. There is alot of risks that are apparent with pigment stones such as cirrhosis, biliary tract infections, and hereditary blood cell disorders, such as sickle cell anemia.

        Although there is the two distinct stones above, it isn’t unusual for stones to exist that are mixed in origin. Gallstones aren’t limited to one particular section – they can occur anywhere within the bilary tree. The bilary tree includes the gallbladder and the common bile duct. Gallstones vary greatly in size and numbers. It is possible for the gallbladder to develop one single stone that is as big as golfball, or for it to create several thousand which can be as small as a grain of sand.

        Quoted from this link :-

        There is passage there which mentioned that a Dr.Lewis sent some passed out gallstones to a laboratory for testing :-

        The fecal material will berunny and wash through the net.You can use the index card, folded in half, as a makeshift shovel. Place the stones in the jar and screw the lid on. You may want to show your stones to some people. Many will beamazed, but some will still be unbelievers. You certainly want to keep your stones for awhile to remind yourself that it was all worth while. After a few days they will dissolve(because of the lemon juice and oil). If you want to keep them for an indefinite period,store them in your freezer with a label – GALL STONES. DON’T’ EAT!!!!You may notice green objects and maybe greenish liquid excrement in the toilet bowel.Those are small gall stones.

        Some gall stones may be dissolved by the treatment.Dr Lewis found that 1% of people failed to pass gall stones. If you are one of these 1%,don’t be disappointed. In some individuals, the powerful action of the lemon juice causesthe stones to dissolve before they are passed out of the body. IF you have only greenishliquid bowel movements, the cleanse has been effective. Notice any increase in vitality that usually follows the cleanse.Remember, optimum efficiency in the human body can only occur if all our God-given parts are working properly.

        Some people (including doctors) will say that your gall stones are not gall stones butfecal matter.

        To quote from Dr Lewis:”To clarify the situation and eliminate such questions, I sent a sample of gall stones to amedical analysis lab run by a Ph.D. who heads up the Science Department at TexasWoman’s University in Denton. He ran the necessary tests…His analysis of the stone sample I sent was 91% cholesterol and the rest was bile salts,water and inert ingredients. In other words, the sample had the chemical contents of gallstones. And the report clearly states it was gall stones”

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      No problem there at all…please feel free to ask away whenever you have any queries. :wink:

      Yes, eat like normal on Days 1 to 5. On Day 6 (purge day), normal breakfast and lunch before 1 pm…try not to eat too much meat, and not heavy meals. :idea:

      Heheh, I have decided to go on this cleanse and today is Day 1. I read somewhere that it’s best to drink room temperature apple juice (not cold ones from the fridge) and this time around, I am doing just that. My purge day is on Christmas Day, this Sunday. :lol:

      Just in time to feel great with good energy to start decluttering and cleaning for the Chinese New Year. Although we feel is a little tired after completion of the flush due to the lack of sleep (some have to go to the toilet very often, like my second daughter) and lack of food….on Day 7, I usually feel very light and healthy and happy and invigorated with good energy!

      When you are doing the gallbladder flush – try to observe closely how you feel before and after the purge. :wink:

      With best wishes,

    Oh ya…. Forgot to ask you, the olive oil not necessary have to be extra virgin right. The one I bought is not extra virgin wordings on the bottle

    • 155

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      You are most welcome! I guess I can only talk about my gallstone problem and cleansing here mostly as the people reading this post would understand and empathise with me. None of my family nor friends have gallstones problems. :lol:

      I am not sure if the olive oil needs to be the extra virgin type :oops: – I think the extra virgin one is a better quality type and can be consumed/drank directly, whereas the other types are for cooking.

      I got a definition of it from HERE though :-

      Virgin oil is the result of a single, simple pressing; in contrast, cold-pressed is a marketing label rather than a processing technique.

      Extra virgin is the highest quality olive oil — characterized by “perfect flavor and odor, max acidity (oleic acid) of 1g/100g – 1% with maximum peroxide value mequiv 02/kg of 20.” In some regions, extra virgin oil is judged by a panel of experts for taste, mouth feel, and aroma. This oil tends to be most delicate in flavor, and is preferred for salads or served at the table with bread for dipping, or added to soups and stews.

      Good luck with your gallbladder cleanse!

        Thanks again for your information…….. I know you felt better ever since you did your 1st gallbladder cleansing (no more painful) that is why you continue doing it and now is the 5th time if I’m not mistaken. A lot of comment here did actually ask you to do 2nd scan to see your result and I also understand your situation why are you not doing your scan. But don’t you really want to know your result being for putting your effort of doing this cleansing all this while? I’m also looking forward for your 2nd scan result…….

      • 157

        Hi there, dear gooday :D

        Heheh, I know, many people has asked me to do a second scan to check :oops: :lol: – as I am feeling better and don’t have the pain at my gallbladder anymore since I first did the apple juice cleanse, I decided not to fork out any money for the scan. It will cost quite a bit and as I don’t have anymore symptoms of gallstone or gallbladder problems, I need to see my doctor to get a referral. Quite a hassle really for me. :wink:

    3cm galltone testing this tonight! said,

    Hi I have also decided to try this method as my scan has found a 3cm gallstone that has had me in emergency care a few times. I am definitely not having my gallbladder removed and at the worst I will have the stone shattered so I can pass it.

    I have been having a tbsp. of apple cider vinegar and almost a litre a day of juice with an apple or two for 4 day so far. I have prepared 3 tbsp. Epsom salts in 3 cups of water for (3/4 cup at 6pm, 8pm, after 6am and 2 hours later). I will be using extra virgin olive oil and red grapefruit juice. I am not eating after 2pm at all as I read eating or taking any medication can reduce the effects. I am praying this will lead to great results for me.

    My doctor wants the sample if I pass the large stone. I did read that it can be dangerous (fatal) if a large stone gets lodged but my doctor said that what happens is the build-up over time causes an infection that can kill you. If this happens (a stone gets stuck) and you go to the hospital straight away it is safe. Usually people get a stone lodged (not from cleansing) and they leave it for a day or two to their own detriment.

    As far as I read the “extra virgin” olive oil is preferred for the taste. Normal olive oil is fine but taste stronger.

    The grapefruit is supposed to mix better with the oil and why I chose instead of lemon juice. I tried to get some ornithine (amino acid) to help sleep but couldn’t get it anywhere in time.

    The woman in the health food shop asked if I had done the parasite treatment first but I haven’t so I hope this too does not dilute the effect of the liver cleanse. By this time tomorrow I should know hey?

      3cm galltone testing this tonight! said,

      Update: So far this morning I have passed over 100 stones. The largest ones have been 2cm long (yes I measured them :lol: ). I wasn’t ill at all and slept fine. I used fresh lemon juice not grapefruit (I hated the taste of grapefruit) I also added a little juice to each Epsom salts dose for better taste. I also used 4tbsp. not 3 in the 3 cups of water. This mornig I felt fine so I ate a nectarine after the 7.30am mixture and layed down. It was only then things started moving. Nothing happened the night before (no bowl movement) but today staying close to the bathroom with stone passing each time. I am so gald I tried this. I ate toast and coffee after the 9.30am salt solution. I hope this helps someone too. My doctor was impressed this morning as we had a laugh over it :-)

        Hi there, dear “3cm gallstone testing this tonight” :D

        Wow, that’s a really comprehensive report of your gallbladder flush experience – thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience, I really appreciate that. It helps me to improve my method of doing the flush, which is due this coming Sunday night, 25 December, 2011. Thank you! :idea:

        Good job and congratulations on a very successful gallbladder cleanse to you! Wow, 100 stones! That’s incredible! Most importantly, your experience was very smoothsailing and you didn’t feel ill at all. How wonderful! I’m so happy for you. Are your from Australia :?:

        I’m glad your doctor was informed of your natural gallbladder cleanse, too, and it looks like you had good support from him/her as well. Did you show him the gallstones that you passed out? Thank you for explaining to us from your doctor’s viewpoint on how a gallstone may get stuck and causes inflammation over a few days. In that case, if anyone feels pain still after completing the cleanse is advised strongly to see a doctor, just in case of any stones stuck in the bile duct.

        I was told earlier that it is normal for our gallbladder area (perhaps the bile duct as well) to feel a little sore after finishing the cleanse as it was working very hard in flushing out the stones. :idea:

        Your tips are very helpful and I will use the following procedure when I start my flush this Sunday :-

        1) use 4 tbsp Epsom Salt in 3 cups of water – for 3/4 cup each at 6pm, 8pm, after 6am and 2 hours later on the following day (I will add some juice as the taste is really awful)- this method will encourage more purging of gallstones

        2) use grapefruit in place of lemon juice, for better mixture with the olive oil … graprefruit is not as sour as lemon juice and I will add in a little honey so that the mixture is easier on my stomach. I am afraid of getting heartburn or acid reflux from drinking this mixture

        How much of the grapefruit juice/olive oil mixture did you take and at what time? I’m wondering if I should drink that in the morning as well :?:

        I will post here on the results of my flush on Monday, next week. :wink:

        Merry Christmas!

        With best wishes,

        3cm galltone testing this tonight! said,

        Dear happyhomemaker,
        To be honest I think the Epsom salts in the morning 2 times made the difference so when I do it again I won’t skip that. It wasn’t until after the morning dose and eating a nectarine that things started to move. I would have thought the oil and lemon juice would have upset me as well but with gallstones I think the reflux is more blockage that appears to have those symptoms. My tummy was fine with everything I took to my surprise.

        I took the 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil & 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 hours after the last night salt mixture. I actually timed it 6pm, 8.20pm for the Epsom salts & water (refrigerated for better taste plus 1 tbps, red grapefruit juice) & 10.20pm for the oil mix. I was able to eat normally keeping it light for the first half ogf the day. I was hungry last night but not enough to worry me too much. I had no symptoms that would not have been from not eating for hours. I am definitely going to try again after Christmas and will be getting a follow up scan to see the difference. I am surprised they didn’t see the 2cm stones unless they were broken pieces of the larger stone?

        Yes happyhomemaker I am an Aussie girl :-)

      • 162

        Hi there, dear Aussie girl :D:

        Thank you for your explanation **2 thumbs up** – I’m so glad I only have to take the olive oil/lemon juice mixture one time only. I really hate drinking that oily stuff. :roll: :lol:

        I’m also happy that you will be going for a scan after your second flush, that will certainly confirm if your 3cm gallstone found earlier has been flushed out. I read somewhere that the gallstones in the bladder may not be all visible under the ultrasound scan as they may not be dense enough or they are too small (almost like sand grains.)

        The links below has some good information and scans of gallstones and the gallbladder ===>


        Quoted from the link below ===>


        Q5. Can I have gallstones even if the X-ray or ultrasound is negative?
        Yes. The major component of most gallstones is cholesterol which is not radio-opaque. This explains why many gallstones do not show up on a plain X-ray; only stones with high calcium content are radio-opaque and visible.

        Ultrasound scans have a better chance of detecting gallstones, but may still miss:

        – stones in the bile ducts.
        – stones in the liver.
        – stones fully packed in the gallbladder. Unlike the hollow gallbladder, the packed gallbladder and the liver are both denser organs which reflect sound waves off their outer surface instead of the stones.
        – stones in a gallbladder surrounded by excess fatty tissue which blocks the sound waves. In a study by Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, the diagnostic test most frequently compromised by excess fat was abdominal ultrasound. In other words, too much fat can produce a false negative result.

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

        P.S. I will report back here the results of my cleanse (Day 6 is tomorrow).

      • 163

        P.S. I found more information from the link below ===>


        Q1. How does the flush work?
        The treatment triggers a dramatic jump in liver and gallbladder activity, causing the liver to produce an extreme amount of bile, and the gallbladder to contract vigorously. The sudden surge of fresh unsaturated bile softens the cholesterol stones, lubricates the ducts, and forces out the stones with help from the gallbladder acting as a pump. The gallstones are literally “squirted” out into the intestines as the body reacts to the treatment.

        Q2. How do I know the “stones” in my stool are real?
        To put this argument to rest, just take the stones to a reliable laboratory for analysis. You will find the results consistent with gallstone content – cholesterol, bile pigment, bile salts and other trace elements. Alternatively, scan your gallbladder after a few flushes and compare the images before and after. More importantly, watch for improvements in your symptoms, overall health and general well-being.

        Q3. Can the gallbladder hold so many stones?
        Depending on the size of the stones, the gallbladder can contain up to thousands of small stones. The huge number of stones you see after the flush may also come from the liver, which is a much larger organ.

        Q6. How can large stones pass through the narrow bile ducts?
        An ultrasound scan cannot distinguish between a single large stone in the gallbladder, and multiple stones positioned close to each other. In the case of large cholesterol stones, repeated flushes can soften and gradually dissolve them until they are small enough to pass through the elastic bile ducts. Nature has similar examples where a large object goes through a narrow passage – a snake swallowing a meal larger than its head, or a mother giving birth to her child.

        Q8. What are the side effects of this remedy?
        The term “side effects” is associated with prescription drugs which produce new problems in the process of suppressing the original symptoms. On the other hand, the discomfort caused by this remedy is only temporary, until you pass the stones out. Some of our customers do not feel any discomfort other than the urge to stool.

        About 4 hours after taking the remedy, you may feel slightly uncomfortable around the abdomen. Among other experiences are: dizziness, nausea, headache, fever, or cold sweat. A few of our customers describe a feeling of “things” moving in the abdomen. Do not be afraid, the treatment is doing its work.

        3cm galltone testing this tonight! said,

        Hi Happyhomemaker,

        I am going to do the flush a couple more times before I get the scans now I have seen how much I had before the first cleanse. I have been able to eat normally over the Christmas “feasts” and not suffer like I did before and I am so grateful I tried a cleanse. It must have been the smaller stones causing all the pain (as the doctor said). I would have normally been in incredible pain. I even had a chilli meal last night and managed OK.

        I didn’t find the process all that bad and have heard that if you are unwell during the flush it can be that you have parasites and need to do a parasite cleanse first. Also eating dairy or protein foods that day and eating anything after 2pm can make you fell ill. The oil solution is a bit tough on the last few mouthfulls. I think it is really important not to eat or drink anything after 2pm and before 6am the next morning except the salts mixture and oil mixture.

      • 165

        Hi there, dear 3cm gallstone testing this :D

        Ah, yes – the ultimate proof that the gallstone flush works for us is when we get to indulge in rich foods without any problems, compared to before. :lol:

        I remember the first time I had to go to the hospital emergency treatment in the middle of the night and found out I have gallstones – I had some rich cakes and that was enough to put me in trouble. Nowadays, if I do have a whole slice of cream cake, I have no problems at all. Even rich, fried foods…but of course, these days, I have also learned to eat healthier and lesser of those rich foods, only during festivals or celabrations. :wink:

        Yes, I read also that when we feel ill during the flush, there are parasites. I found the parasite cleanse recipe here with Huda Clark’s famous gallbladder cleanse recipe but I afraid I can’t find the ingredients here in Malaysia.


        You mentioned that the pharmacist asked you if you had done a kidney cleanse, is the method same as Huda Clark’s or different?

        I also read at some website that the more ill someone gets, the better the results of the gallstone flush. I must go find that article again and post it here.

        Oh, the olive oil and the Epsom Salt drinks are absolutely awful – thinking about them now is enough to make me feel sick in the stomach! :oops: :lol: When I had to drink them, I try to focus my eyes on something and hum a song in my head while drinking them – so that the taste doesn’t register that much in my drink! Oh, I also held my breath at the same time! :lol:

        I have another positive report ===> yesterday, I had my air-conditioner technician over at my house to clean my air-conds. At the same time, I was busy cleaning and decluttering my house for the coming Chinese New Year. I was extremely busy going up and down my 3-storey house and surprising, I had lots of energy – I didn’t have time to eat and I decided to just drink 1 bowl of the Tateshi Kazu Miracle Vegetable Soup and I drank lots of water during the day. I only had a light dinner. It’s truly amazing how good one can feel after doing the flush. I had so much energy yesterday despite not eating any food until dinner time, and I wasn’t even tired at all.

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

        P.S. Yes, I read also it is good to do a few flushes before going for another scan to confirm the results. It seems one may need around 6 to 10 flushes or until one doesn’t flush out anything at all to know for sure that there are no more gallstones. This is because some stones could have move from the back at the liver into the gallbladder as we do our flushes. :idea:

    Hi choefs,

    Thanks for your information. Looks like there is a center who actually provide natural flushing for gallstones & kidney stones. Where you get this info? How is your flushing yesterday?

    • 167

      Good morning, dear gooday :D

      I was reading up on gallbladder (also known as kidney cleanse) over the Internet and whenever I find something interesting, I would quote it here for everyone’s information. :idea:

      As I am typing this, I have one more drink of Epsom Salts-Water Mixture due at 10am which should encourage me to go for another (possible the last one) purge.

      I think this is my 6th Gallbladder Cleanse that I had done over 2 years or so. Later I will summarise my cleanse results into the post above, for my easy reference.

      This time round, my experience was very different from the previous ones ===>

      After drinking the Epsom Salts at 6pm last night, I immediately felt rumblings in my stomach and intestines and I went to the toilet twice. After drinking the 8pm Epsom Salts, I went to the bathroom another time, and after drinking the Olive Oil mixture, yet another time was spent in the bathroom. By midnight, I had gone 5 times but there were no visible gallstones yet.

      I had difficulty sleeping as I was starting to get hungry and had a bit of nausea (I get nauseous if I don’t eat). Around 11m, I took 1/2 cup of Horlicks (without milk nor sweetener). Went to bed after that and slept well until almost 8am this morning. Went immediately to the toilet and this time, there were lots and lots of tiny stuff floating, not green but pale brown (what they call “tan” colour), which I had read somewhere is called “chaff” – the information on chaff is quoted right below. There were more than 100, I think, as it was difficult to count.

      Quoted from here :- http://breathing.com/articles/liver-cleanse.htm

      How well did you do? Possible diarrhea in the morning of the second day (Sunday). The ideal way to see what you are actually eliminating is to defecate into a white clear glass bowl or large white plastic bucket. The bowl or bucket is used to also see the reddish crystals which collect at the bottom of the bowl (the stones float on top) and those crystals would ordinarily be lost somewhere at the bottomless hole in the toilet and you would have missed them. The alternative is to use the toilet and look into it for the stones with a flashlight. Look for the greenish kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones and not food residue. Only bile (coating the stones) from the liver is green. The bowel movement (if there is any) sinks but gall and liver stones float because of the cholesterol inside. Count them roughly, whether tan or green. You may have to eliminate up to 2000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies or bursitis, joint or back pain. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days but as the stones from the rear of the liver travel forward they might give you the same symptoms again. You may repeat this gallbladder/liver cleanse at two-week intervals until no more stones come out. Never cleanse when you are ill.

      Sometimes, the bile ducts are full of cholesterol crystals that did not form into round stones. They appear as a “chaff” floating on top of the toilet bowl water. It may be tan colored, harboring millions of tiny white crystals. Cleansing this chaff is just as important as purging stones. We don’t know what is the identity of the reddish heavy small crystals that collect at the bottom of the bowl.

      Took my 3rd dose of Epsom Salts around 8am and around 9.30am, had to visit the bathroom again. This time round, I was happy to see a few dark green stuff – gallstones with bile – about 6 to 8, around 1 cm to 2 cm, in longish shape. Also there were more tan yellow small ones.

      I was recalling – I think it was my Flush No. 4 – when the whole surface of the bowl water was covered with really soft dark green floating mass…maybe I had a great flush then. The only thing I did differently then was to drink a bowl of “Tateshi Kazu Miracle Vegetable Soup” in the afternoon. I read white radish or daikon can help get rid of gallstones.

      About an hour ago, I drank a bowl of that vegetable soup – not sure if I will get better results taking it so late at this time.

      So far, I have not had any breakfast yet, just that soup. Despite so much purging and no food since yesterday lunch, I feel very energised, invigorated, light and not tired at all. I made some sweet potato and brown plus fragrant rice porridge…I will eat some of that together with some bottled picked lettuce as my light brunch afterwards around 11am.

      Okay, I will stop here and go take my last dose of Epsom Salts – yippee!! Will post here again with the latest results. :wink:

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      • 168

        P.S. According to my healer lady friend, sweet potatoes (called yams in USA) are very good for cleansing the stomach and intestines, and so, I thought eating that will go well with my gallbladder/liver cleanse. The purple variety of sweet potatoes are the best…I was watching a Korean health documentary programme on TV last week and the doctors there mentioned that the No.1 superfood for health is “sweet potatoes”. :idea:

      • 169

        Hello again, dear gooday :D

        I took my last Epsom Salt drink around 10.30am – went to the bathroom twice with many small light green stuff – around 1 mm sizes, a few around 3 mm. Had a few more purges in the afternoon, without much results (just water). The next time I do the cleanse, I will take one dose of Epsom Salt in the morning only, as it tastes really awful and I find that the purges after the last dose didn’t yield much. :idea:

        I put 4 tablespoons of Epsom Salts into 3 cups of water and drank that mixture 4 times, each 3/4 cup.

        With best wishes,

    Hi choefs,

    Thanks for sharing your 6th flushing experience. Why you want to take 2 extra intake of Epsom salt, it is because you want to flush more? It is safe to take extra Epsom salt because after the epsom salt you tend to go toilet, will it cause dehydration? You get ready all 4 intake of Epsom salt on the 6th day, then you drink it at 6pm, 8pm, 8am & 10am the next day, you keep the Epsom mixture in the fridge?

    The gallstone treatment center in kajang (front the earlier link) don’t know reliable or not! I read through their website, they started this center in 1997 in kluang, Johor, it shows that they are experienced into gallstone flushing treatment and their treatment is slightly different. No apple juice part. Their treatment only take 1 day!!! For those ppl who dare not to do it at home personally can go there at least when something happen during the flushing process there is some one to consult.

    • 171

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      I was trying to see if I will flush out more stones by taking more Epsom Salts :oops: – I read in most gallbladder cleanse techniques (other than Dr.Lai’s) said to do 4 flushes. Theirs also said no food nor drinks after 2 pm on Day 6. Dr.Lai’s method said to skip dinner only, so I had sips of water occasionally. Anyway, surprisingly, I wasn’t very dehydrated despite so many occasions going to the toilet and I didn’t feel ill at all. :idea: I didn’t keep the Epsom salts in the fridge as cold drinks don’t agree with my stomach.

      I’m not sure if the gallstone treatment centre in Kajang is reliable or not. Seems you have found more information on them than I did. :lol: They probably charge for the treatments there.

    Good morning choefs,

    Today is my 7th day of the cleansing. Yesterday after the 6pm & 8pm Epsom salt (the taste felt bitter), my stomach also got sound like “glee glee gok gok”. Just befor the 10pm olive oil+lemon juice, I did go toilet (actually in the afternoon I already want to go toilet to do busine, so since i hv the 2 time of Epsom salt, I try to go toilet). At 1st is normal bowel movement, then after that follow with a purge, i saw a few tiny round yellowish thing (can imagine as the seed in the red chili). After I came out from toilet I drink the olive oil & lemon mixtures (taste very sour). Then I sleep on the right side curling my leg towards my chest. So I wait & wait as no purging feeling at all until 6am, I took another glass of Epsom salt. After I think half an hour, still no feeling of purging, so I try to go toilet to purge myself. Then I saw 1 Dark green, 3 darker green (almost like black color) & 2 or 3 yellowish thingy floated. (I didn’t measure the size of it). I scope it out put on newspaper & press on it, it really soft that it can be spread on the newspaper. So am I consider that I am sucessful in this cleansing. Is yours stone also as soft as mine?

      Went to toilet again just now. This time got 1 really big one, 2 small & some tiny tiny one……….. So today i might need to go toilet few times until my bowel movement back to normal is it? since yesterday until now, i went toilet 3 times, Each time I purge I don’t hv a feeling for purging, I go toilet to try myself………

      • 176

        Hi there, dear gooday :D

        Congratulations on a successful gallbladder flush! Yes, the dark green ones are the older gallstones that have bile in them, hence the dark green colour. The lighter coloured ones have more cholesterol in them or something like that. The tiny brown yellowish ones are called chaff.

        It’s strange how you didn’t get the urge to purge, but then everyone has different experiences. The most important is you purged out successfully the gallstones. What we passed out are very soft due to the regular apple juice that we were instructed to take over the 6 days….hence, it is very safe for the gallstones to pass through our bile duct if we have taken the apple juice or ate whole apples. :wink:

        Try doing a few more flushes before you go for your ultrasound scan the next time. :idea:

    Hi choefs,

    Went for lunch this afternoon. Eat quite a lot…… Because hungry. Then went shopping at Tesco. Feel llike going toilet, so quickly go home.

    Just came out from toilet 😁. difficult to purge this time, not as easier as this morning like diarrhea. After trying hard, I am sooooo surprised to see what I had passed out. I passed out a few stones. One of it is very very very big…….. Almost As big as one 50 cents size, round and fat !!!!!!!!!!!!! I used a stick to break it, inside is green in colour……. same as the others. I am now very confused, do we have such a big stones in our body? Is it formed by a few stones to one big one? Or it is actually not gallstones, is the chemical reaction of our apple juice+olive oil+lemon juice !!!!!! 😥

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      Wow, your experience is indeed fascinating. You still passed out more stones in the afternoon! If you have not eaten anything until lunch time, then the 50 cents sized stone is indeed a gallstone. But if you have had breakfast, then it could be some food solids wrapping around a gallstone. My personal opinion is that the apple juice softens the gallstones and they would increase in size when they are passed out.

      If you do a Google Image search for gallstones, you will be amazed at how big the stones can be in rock solid form. :shock:

      With best wishes,

      Hi Choefs,

      From mu understanding they can be different colours from bright green to black. If the large stome was bright green (kind of like the background on this website) then it was definately a stone. I have heard that someone passed a stone the size of 2 hens eggs!

      • 180

        Hi there, dear Aussie girl :D:

        Yes, you are right – the stones can be different colours. Wow, the size of 2 hens’ eggs sounds so scary to be passed out, but it could be done! :shock:

      Hi choefs,

      Today is 8th day. Still got some stones when I go toilet just now!!!!!! I wonder how many left in my stomach? Because this morning and just now also got floating stones but is wrapping with solid food lah. How abt yours? No more on the 8th day? 😳

      • 183

        Hi there, dear gooday :D:

        Wow, you are still passing out the gallstones on Day 8 :?: What colour are the stones? For me, once I began to eat again after the fast and purge, I never noticed any more green stuff floating. The yellowish stuff, I would think they are food wastes. So, I only took my results until the morning of Day 7 only.

        I read that once we have cleared the stones in our gallbladder, then more will move forward from the liver, ducts, etc and fill up the gallbladder again. That’s why we need to do the flush for many times in order to clear the whole system of gallstones. Some people reported they did the flush for 5 times, some up to 10, before they end up with nothing flushed out. One flush occasion is taken as one period of Day 1 to Day 6 (Purge Day), not how many times we go to the toilet. :idea:

    Hi choefs,

    Today I’m Back to normal already. Yesterday as I see still got floating stuff, I’m also not sure will it stones or not because it is yellowish colour (it should be food that i eat). to confirm, so I use a stick to break it and inside is green in color! Is there any fixed time to proceed with 2nd cleanse after the 1st one? Or it is up to us. Me most probably will not repeat it so fast as the taste of the Epsom salt & olive oil mixture is unpleasant to drink 😁

    • 185

      Hi there, dear gooday :D

      Wow, you are still passing out green gallstones in food wastes. That’s fascinating. I never thought that could happen – you were very “brave” to check further. Heheh, I think you are probably the first one to do your “research” until so far. We also learned something new with you, too! :lol:

      I can’t remember the first 3 times I did my gallbladder flush…they were quite close together because I wanted fast results! I think I did 3 flushes in 2 months. Some people said we can do again after 2 weeks. For me, the first time, I got so tired of drinking the apple juice that I never wanted to drink anymore of that for a long time. These days, I am really scared of the taste of Epsom salts and the olive oil-lemon juice mixture. Thinking about it now is already making me nauseous. :roll:

    Posted by George Iverson (Submitted on 2012/01/17 at 2:26 am) :-


    Hi HHM88,
    Thought I’d share my experience on your blog. Im a 33 year old male and I was diagnosed with a 17mm gall-rock about June last year.

    In 2011, about January…I had severe bouts of pain and didn’t have a clue what the hell had sprout inside me. I was checked up and diagnosed with pneumonia after x-rays were taken… hospitalized and treated for it with intravenous anti biotics and what not… so that healed my chest pains… for a long time.

    I even committed myself to a rehab for 30 days in February… (didnt have drinking problems but being diagnosed with pneumonia got me shook bad, I was tryina reform my life after that.) I came out of rehab, and hung out sober at barbeques… Im not fat at all… Im just not a work-out junkie cause Im lazy…

    I realise now that I actually ate a lot’a fatty beef almost everyday … and he would have a beer afterwards while I’d have a coke or somethin. Then in June I got those pains back again… got checked up and they saw a “single mobile gallstone of about 17mm” and “the gall bladder appeared contracted with no obvious intra or extra hepatic bile duct dilation, the liver appeared echogenic most likely due to fatty infiltration with areas of focal fatty sparing seen”.

    The sonar report had all’a them nice fancy words but it boiled down to the biggest ever gallstone ever spotted with a hubble scope being inside of me… and the doctor revered me to surgeon to have it removed. He said it was an old lady desease and wondered what I do to get ish like that at my age… so I googled the condition and came across horror stories of people who had gallbladders removed and turned diabetic and what not… so I thought… what the heck… people get these things right? Besides, I dont think ancient folks died everytime a gall bladder appeared … the body must have a way of dealing with it… so, I’ll just live it through, chillin with my gallstone n all..ballin… and mysteriously the pain disappeared too… until a week ago… and I was rushed to the hospital with severe pain, and given pain killers and shots.

    So the pain’s gone again… but now I thought of dealing with it while my gallstone’s asleep. I came across Dr. Lai Chiu Nan’s (or allegedly hers) self remedy.. I followed it a flushed those green pellets today, the biggest one havin been about 10mm… and they were like 20 or so.

    The first time I dropped in the morning nothing came out… and I felt like a fool believing stuff on the net. Around mid day I felt like I needed to drop another album, so I just went on and did my thang. I saw a lil bit of blood staining on my wipe, so I looked down and saw some of those …. they were not on their own so I had to whip the pot with the toilette brush a bit… and they came out floating.

    I read on some website that this was a hoax and that those green pellets were a compound of magnesium sulphate hardening the olive-lime mix… sounds convincing… because I tried picking out one of those “stones” with a peck and it just squashed it… I thought gallstones were stones? These were more like gall-jellies…. but perhaps “the malic acid in the apple juice softened them”….but there was one of 10mm that seemed a bit darker and a lil solid…

    I lost most of them down the drain in what seemed to be a saga tryina scoop them out and putting them in the brush holder and rinsing them in hot water (so if it was a indigestible fat-roll, it shoulda desolved away in warm water … right? I dunno science much… I’m now drying them wrapped in toilette paper, perhaps if it hardens I can have a wristlet made out of it (:-) and Im thinkin of doing the same routine again starting now, is that gonna strain my bladder? cause… just now the 17mm bugger is actually still stuck in my bile duct then what? Will post follow ups…. laters ;)

      3cm galltone (second flush) said,

      Hi HHM88,

      The green stones are not hard like a rock but they feel like it when they get stuck!. They are green because of the bile. I flushed 2 20mm stones in my first flush (amonst over 100 stones) so your stone can be flushed (no pain). I just did a second flush today and several small ones but looks like the first flush worked well or I shoud have done the apple juice again (skipped this time). It is recommended that you leave it a few weeks before doing another flush to give your body a rest. Best of luck. I personally think I will still have to change my diet or be up for more issues in the future as the first flush made a massive difference but after a few weeks fatty foods played up again. It is my understanding that the smaller stones can be the ones that cause the pain. Hopefully I have rid myself of the culprets.

      The cause is too much colestrol in the diet so healthy eating is a must for anyone with this issue regardless of the flushing. Best of luck!

    elizabeth said,

    I am wondering if you ever did your second ultrasound to confirm you flushed your 2.3cm large stone?

    I also got my ultrasound report and it stated I have a single large 2.3cm stone, otherwise healthy gallbladder, with a healthy 3mm bile duct.

    I am considering the flush with monitoring by my holistic nutritionist. He will guide me along the way and is very optimistic.

    Only problem is I have spoken to my general doctor. She this said exactly:

    #1 The stone is to big to pass. 2.3cm rock-hard stone will not fit down the 3mm bile duct.

    #2 If it does manage to get in the bile duct, it may get stuck. So the bile duct is to small and the stone is to big. I could die within 24 hours. Or at least get emergency life saving surgery and it would be way more complicated then just removing a gallbladder by that point.

    #3 She told me the flush would be OK if I had little tiny stones or just wanted to clear my gallbladder of “sludge”. Sludge can look like stones when it comes out because the intestines shape it and it hardens a little. The stones she said are completely hard unlike the clumped-up sludge. She said that’s what most people see after a flush and they think it’s a stone.

    I am meeting with another GI doctor in 4 days. I will mention the flush to him too and see what he says.

    I was told to not get pregnant (32/F/Married) until I get my gallbladder removed. I guess the large baby bump could push on the gallbladder getting the stone stuck in the bile duct. Or I could have a normal gallbladder attack and the pain could induce early labor. I have not had children yet and its all on hold for this.

    So I would like to make a decision very soon. Flush or Surgery? Do the risks out way the possible results (keeping in mind I do not have forever to do 20 flushes to try, the baby clock is ticking)?

    Any advice?

    • 191

      Hi there, dear Elizabeth :D

      I am really sorry to hear you have a large gallstone, too. :cry:

      No, I didn’t go back to do my second ultra sound scan as I didn’t want to pay for it and I was feeling great after doing the gallbladder flushes. I can only guess that my large stone is not there anymore because before I did the flushes, I would feel a sharp pain at my gallbladder area (just below the right breast) every time I press down gently. Now, I don’t feel any pain there at all no matter how deeply I press into that area. When I first went to the ER at the hospital with severe gastric pains and found out initial news that I had a gallstone, the doctor there also did the “pressing method” onto my gallbladder area and subsequently, he ordered an ultrasound text done the next morning and that was how I confirmed I had a 22cm gallstone.

      Maybe for you as your stone is quite large and your baby clock is ticking, you may just have to opt for surgery to remove your gallbladder. :idea:

      I didn’t want the surgery for myself because I have friends who had their gallbladder removed still suffering nausea and pains many years after. Plus, they have to really watch what they eat and I will miss eating my Crispy Roast Pork Belly. :lol:

      Anyway, below is a summary of what I had learnt so far about this flush :-

      1) drinking the apple juice 4 times a day (1 litre) for 6 continuous days will soften the hard gallstones, thus making them easily passable through the bile duct

      2) although the bile duct is only 3mm in diameter, I read that it can actually stretch to accommodate the soft stones

      3) although the ultrasound scan showed up a single large gallstone, it could be made up of numerous smaller gallstones stuck or clumped together

      4) most GI doctors will advise surgery and will not encourage a flush

      Here is more information on the flush in case you had missed reading it in the earlier comments above :-

      Quoted from – http://gallstoneflush.com/faq.html#flush_Q1

      Q1. How does the flush work?
      The treatment triggers a dramatic jump in liver and gallbladder activity, causing the liver to produce an extreme amount of bile, and the gallbladder to contract vigorously. The sudden surge of fresh unsaturated bile softens the cholesterol stones, lubricates the ducts, and forces out the stones with help from the gallbladder acting as a pump. The gallstones are literally “squirted” out into the intestines as the body reacts to the treatment.

      Q2. How do I know the “stones” in my stool are real?
      To put this argument to rest, just take the stones to a reliable laboratory for analysis. You will find the results consistent with gallstone content – cholesterol, bile pigment, bile salts and other trace elements. Alternatively, scan your gallbladder after a few flushes and compare the images before and after. More importantly, watch for improvements in your symptoms, overall health and general well-being.

      Q3. Can the gallbladder hold so many stones?
      Depending on the size of the stones, the gallbladder can contain up to thousands of small stones. The huge number of stones you see after the flush may also come from the liver, which is a much larger organ.

      Q6. How can large stones pass through the narrow bile ducts?
      An ultrasound scan cannot distinguish between a single large stone in the gallbladder, and multiple stones positioned close to each other. In the case of large cholesterol stones, repeated flushes can soften and gradually dissolve them until they are small enough to pass through the elastic bile ducts. Nature has similar examples where a large object goes through a narrow passage – a snake swallowing a meal larger than its head, or a mother giving birth to her child.

      Q8. What are the side effects of this remedy?
      The term “side effects” is associated with prescription drugs which produce new problems in the process of suppressing the original symptoms. On the other hand, the discomfort caused by this remedy is only temporary, until you pass the stones out. Some of our customers do not feel any discomfort other than the urge to stool.

      About 4 hours after taking the remedy, you may feel slightly uncomfortable around the abdomen. Among other experiences are: dizziness, nausea, headache, fever, or cold sweat. A few of our customers describe a feeling of “things” moving in the abdomen. Do not be afraid, the treatment is doing its work.

      So, there is no right or wrong decision for you to make. You have to consider everything – the risks and the time factor – and you will make a wise decision. Good Luck!

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D:

      3cm galltone (second flush) said,

      Hi Elizabeth, I did a flush and was sceptic but passed over 100 stones and 2 of them were 2.5cm in size. Hardly felt a thing. The duct can pass stones that size I assure you. Disclaimers always warn of risk but I have done it twice with no regret. Hope that helps :-)

    John said,

    Hi dear Choesf,
    This is John from Singapore here. Would like to check with you after your flushes, how is your gastric problem now? And how you feel for your total health condition up to this date? I am planning to do this flush too since having some digestion issues. And my overall health condition is not on a tip-top condition like having nauseas, musle pains, and fatigue. Would appreciate with your response. Thanks.


    • 194

      Hi there, dear John :D

      Before I started doing the gallbladder flushes, I would get nausea, headaches and gastric pains very often and usually after consuming fried foods or rich, creamy desserts (cakes :oops: ). Nowadays, I can eat those foods without any problems at all. However, I still do have some wind in my stomach at times but I don’t get gastric anymore. Can eat Tom Yam and really spicy, sour foods at Thai restaurants as well. :wink:

      The feeling immediately after (the day after) the flush is the best feeling felt in terms of health – I would feel very light, healthy, mentally alert and surprisingly, despite a day of no food on Day 6, I have a lot of energy on Day 7 after the flush.

      Perhaps, you can try this flush once and see if your overall health condition improves or not. Sometimes, when our digestive system is not up to par, we can get fatigue due to nutrients not properly absorbed and wind or gas buildup in the stomach can also cause body pains in joints, muscles and even headaches.

      Try taking some apple cider vinegar and honey (1 tablespoon each) to 1 cup of warm water to help with your nausea and digestion. :idea:

        Hi Dear ChoeSF,
        thanks for the reply. Really appreciate that. The ACV seems like working less on me now compared to 2 months ago when I started using it. Think now the most irritated part for me is the muscle aches, fatigue, nauseas and at night cannot sleep well. The stomach flared-up is lesser now, since I eat quite bland nowadays. I plan to start it by this weekend. Hope this will be the solution to get back my health.

      • 200

        Hi there, dear John :D

        I felt better after the first flush already but because I had a gallstone detected, I decided to do 2 or 3 flushes within a few months. Thereafter, I will do a flush every now and then. From the information gathered, the results of gallstones purged are better by the third flush or further. Ideally, I would like to do a gallbladder flush every 4 months or so, but the Day 6 experience is quite difficult for me (i.e. the fasting and purging), as I tend to go hypoglaecemic if I don’t eat. But once the Day 6 is over, Day 7 is really great for me – I feel lighter, more energetic and healthier. :idea:

    John said,

    Thanks, ChoeSF. Just started 1st day of apple juice. Well, I am pretty sure my body is out of balanced, else it wouldn’t caused me all this problems. But hopefully the flush can help me to get the relief. About the sinseh, I am kinda dissapointing bcoz previously I visited a sinseh for around 1 year for some of my health problems(which I think totally related to what I am experiencing now), but sadly the result is not good. It is very hard to get a good sinseh here at SG I guess.

    Hi there! I did read all your posts here, and im very happy that i found you. I started to have pain in the right side and digestive problems about 4 years ago, consist in bloating and diarrhoea. Because of too much diarrhoea i made hemorrhoids. My doctor give me advice to go to have operation. I was scared about and i didnt think i will resolve something by surgery, because i did know that my problem is because of bad digestia,so i gone to a homeopat that gives me a cream and a receipt with healty foods.I used the creams and to eat healty about 2 months and i passed my hemorrhoidal problems. Never had any pain after that. I continued to eat preaty healthy but i still have dull pain on the right part(on gallblader area) and have digestive problems… Well, about 2 years ago i made a scan and my doctor discovered that i have 2 gallstones, one of 11 and one of 15mm. She recomended me operation again! (i think she like to send people to do that) I did not had any surgery because im scared. In octomber 2011 i made other scan, and my stones increased in size: they are now 15.5 and16.3mm :)
    Im happy that i find you!Because i was scared to try it as now i know i have big stones inside my gallbladder I know from long time about this treatment, i made it myself about 5-6 years ago only once because a friend told me that the treatment is good to clean your liver and body. But at that time i didnt know i have gallstones. After that flush i did find many small greens gall “stones”. And i felt good after that.
    So, now i will try again! Ill be back to tell you news about me…

    • 207

      Hi there, dear ioio7899 :D

      I’m sorry to hear that you have gallstones, too…but luckily, you have tried this gallbladder flush before and it will not come as a surprise to you. You can do this flush a few times to get rid of your gallstones. Remember to take a light lunch on Day 6 and after you drink the lemon juice/olive oil mixture, remember to immediately go lie town in bed, on your right side with your legs curled up to your chest in a foetal position. I find that this helps to ensure a better result of the flush. :idea:

      Good Luck on flushing out your gallstones and I await eagerly your feedback here after that. :wink:

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

        P.S. From the information I have of people having gallstones detected in their ultrasound scans, 90% of the time, the doctors will recommend surgery. :roll:

    ioio7899 said,

    Well, i did it! And still alive! Haha! Doctors scared me that is very dangerous and i will end on emergency hospital for surgery! Becouse of this i was afraid to take this treatment again! Only you, people on this forum helped me to have courrage to do it again! Also, i thought that for sure i had gallstones 5-6 years ago when i tried first time this recipe, even if gallstones were smallest at that time, and if nothing bad happened then, why should happening now?
    Im not only alive but im feel MUCH MUCH BETTER!
    In the night after epsom salt and olive oil+lemon juice mixture i dont have any big pain, only a bit disconfort in abdomen and some noises. But when i wake-up in the morning i realised that my right side abdomen pain on the gallbladder area DISSAPEART!Even if i press hard with my fingers i dont feel any pain! I feel now like that my gallblader are empty and able to work. I mention that in the last week before treatment especially, i felt that dull pain and presure all the time like my gladder is full and not able to do his job!.
    I dont had any flush! I was to toilette only in the evening, nothing happened, i didnt find any green stuff. But i feel something good happened in my body! Maybe next time i will drink epsom salt and mixture again in the morning.
    So, i will continue with this treatment every month!
    I did talk with other doctor that not recomended surgery for me and he said that Gallstones can be a reversible process! The human body have the abillity to health himself if we help him with healthy food, physical exercices everyday and weight loss slowly(not faster weight-lose! he said if you lose weight fast this will make your gallblader to produce new gallstones). Im not so much overweight, im not obese, but if i will loose 8-10 kilos i will be in ideal weight.
    This treatment formula help to lose weight too. I already feel my self more slim and light! :)

    Now, is the second day after treatment and i still feel good, not any pain comes back.

      Hi there, dear ioio7899 :D

      Congratulations on feeling much better after completing your gallbladder flush! I’m so happy for you. Although you didn’t purge a lot nor see any gallstones, they are most probably in your stools when you went to have a bowel movement. It’s a wonderful feeling the day after your flush, right? Day 7 is my favourite day during the gallbladder flush…I usually get very happy, light hearted and healthy. Most importantly, the stomach and gallbladder would feel wonderfully great! :lol:

      Yes, do the flush again in the next month…if you don’t have purges or diarrhoea in the evening of Day 6, take again the Epsom Salts and Lemon Juice/Olive Oil at 6am or 8am of Day 7.

      Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience here – it would help to give courage to those who would like to avoid surgery to try the natural apple juice gallbladder flush. :idea:

    i still feel good! This is great for me! Today afternoon i just received some natural remedy and i did start to take it. Is an infusion made with 14 plants and gentiane tincture. I will take them 2-3 months. both are good for digestive problems.
    I will scan and send you by email my ultrasound scan image :)

      Hi there, dear Corina :D

      I’m glad you can get some natural herbal remedy and tincture for digestive and gallbladder problems. That’s a good step to take in addition to flushing our gallbladders with the apple juice method. I am also taking some Chinese herbal medicine to address my gallbladder and digestive problems. I was told that due to the stones I had earlier, my gallbladder became weak and now the herbs will help to heal my gallbladder as well as strengthen it. :idea:

      Thank you for emailing your ultrasound scans…I will upload here in a short while when I come home from running some errands today.

      I have a good friend from Romania who blogs here, too…you may know her :wink: -

        Hi there, dear Corina :D

        I have uploaded your gallbladder scan pictures here already. Hope your follow-up scans in a few months will show success and your large gallstones are gone! :D

        Good Luck!

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      I’m sorry to hear about your mom’s condition :sad: and hope that her pains will go away without surgery. How old is your mom and how long will the prescribed medication from the doctors last?

      When I posted this topic, I had gastric pains but not gallbladder pains, and a stomach scope done on me revealed that I had the H.Pylori bacteria also. I was prescribed a lot of medication that lasted me 1 week. But my pains were gone when I was on the medication.

      I am only worried that your mom may be having an inflamed gallbladder or her gallbladder is too full from stones and the gallbladder may burst, thus possibly resulting in a more complex surgery. My doctor told me that when he advised me to go for surgery. Well, my pains went away and so, it was safe for me to try the apple juice gallbladder flush.

      How is your mom feeling now? Is she still having pain? How long has she been on the medication already?

      Perhaps, someone here may be able to offer you some advice, too, while we wait for your replies. :wink:

      Take care of your mom and let her know that those of us here at this post certainly do understand the pains and concerns she is going through now.

      With best wishes,

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      If your mom is still experiencing pains at the gallbladder region (even though the pains are lesser somewhat), I am too worried to suggest that your mom try out this natural method of flushing the gallbladder. Your mom’s gallbladder may be inflamed and be at risk of bursting, and therefore, this natural gallbladder flush may be risky.

      So, you and your mom must think over carefully before deciding to go ahead to do this natural apple juice flush. I must insist that should your mom’s pains become worse and unbearable at any time during the 6 days of drinking apple juice or on Day 6 evening during the purging/diarrhoea process, she must go to the hospital immediately….for fear of her gallbladder bursting. If she makes it through Day 7, even Day 8, without additional pains, then the natural flush would have worked for her. After that, she is advised to do the flush once a month for the next 3 to 4 months.

      Which country are you from? Here in Malaysia, we can buy the Epsom Salts from the pharmacy.

      Let me know when you have bought the Epsom Salts and I will write down here again the instructions and tips on how to do the flush.

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      P.S. The 5 1/2 days of drinking the apple juice (1 litre a day, 250 ml each 4 time during the day) will not interfere with the medication your mom is taking.

    • 228

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      Since your mom is still experiencing some pain, you have to observe her very closely if she decides to try this natural method of flushing her gallstones. Just in case the pains she is still having is due to inflammation of her gallbladder or her gallbladder is very full. The Day 6 evening (Purge Day) will force her gallbladder to contract strongly to push out the gallstones and this process will be risky if her gallbladder is inflamed. So, you have to observe her closely.

      As you are from the Philippines, here is another website where you can learn more information, too, on the type of apple juice to get there :-


      The link below is a blog by Dr Emil Aligui from Philippines talking about the natural gallbladder flush, perhaps you may like to ask him for his opinion on your mother’s situation :idea: -


      Natural fresh green apple that are blended or juiced are the best to take for the flush, better than the bottled type.

      Do you mean that your mom is having constipation for 2 days already? Taking the apple juice will move the bowels for sure.

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

        P.S. Here is the link to Dr. Emil Aligui’s blog post in year 2006 on how to remove gallstones naturally using apple juice – it has more than 411 comments there until this year…so lots more information for us to read :idea: -


      • 230

        Hello again, dear aira :D

        hi doc. i was suffering in pain for the last 10days… i was diagnosed through x-ray and ultra sound with gall bladder inflamed and thickened wall of 9mm,and it has a 7mm gall stone at its neck,,,is it possible for me to apply your natural way of removing the gall stone even though my gall bladder still in flamed?what caused the gall bladder to be inflamed? and what can i do to make the gall bladder not be be in flamed? or what can i do to stop the pain in a natural way?About the EPSOM SALT…. i bought one in a 20gm sachet.should i dissolve all this 20gm of epsom salt in one glass of water and drink? thank you very much…i really appreciate your big help,,,God bless….pls reply soon,,,,


        From Doc Emil: In cholelithiasis (gall stone) there is usually cholecystitis (gall bladder inflammation/infection), the infection can be anything like gram-negative bacteria up to the usual typhoid bacilli. The presence of stones makes the gall bladder prone to infection. So because of this situation, expelling or removing (surgery) the gall stones will relieve the infection or inflammation of the gall bladder. In surgery, both gallstone and gall bladder can be removed so that infection is controlled much faster. So the answer is that you can proceed with the gall bladder flush. There has been several variations in the use of epsom salts. I would recommend that you take only 1 tsp in 1 cup of water in last day (5th day) which is followed by a mix of 1 cup olive or coconut virgin oil + lemon juice. Some add cola drink (1 cup oil + 1 tbsp lemon juice + 1/2 or 1 cup cola) to make it better tasting to swallow. Lie on the right side for 30mins to 1 hour – this allows the stones to pass out, aided by the epsom salt which relaxes the gall bladder; the oil with stimulates the gall bladder to contract and expel the stones. Then hopefully by the next day when you move your bowels, the stones will come out of your colon.

        doc emil,

        i tried drinking radish juice for 15 days, i had 2.5cm gallstone. after my 2nd U/S my gallstone now is 2.3cm. i guess this is because of radish juice i take. im still worried to do the flushing.

        by the way epsom salt is available at Mercury Drugstore Glorietta Branch beside the HardRock Cafe.


        -Radish juice can help reduce your cholesterol which is the usual composition of gallstones. Regular intake of radish juice can potentially reduce bad cholesterol and can slowly minimize the size of gallstones over time.

    • 233

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      With this natural gallbladder cleansing method, there will always be risks involved and some people will not have success. I, too, am worried for your mom and hope things will be alright with her when she does this flush. But you have to promise me, if there is any sign of your mom having more pain during the apple juice drinking or during the purge, you have to take her immediately to the hospital, okay?

      To your questions – yes, while drinking the apple juice from Day 1 to Day 6, eat like normal during those 5 days but remember to take 1 cup of 250ml of apple juice at breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bedtime (altogether 4 times a day).

      On Day 6, breakfast is taken as normal plus 1 cup of apple juice…lunch, have a very light meal (try to avoid meats – some fish is okay, better is total vegetarian) and take 1 cup of apple juice. By evening time, starting at 6pm…drink the Epsom salt (1 teaspoon to 1 cup water), repeat Epsom salts mixture at 8pm, then take the lemon juice/olive oil at 10pm. You should monitor your mom closely stating from 6pm and ask her frequently how she feels.

      I’m glad your mom is not feeling the pain like before.

      I also read about the cases of some people who encountered problems when they did the purge. There was one lady who couldn’t take fatty stuff and when she took the Epsom salts and olive oil…she purged or had diarrhoea continously until she had dehydration and her blood pressure dropped very low and she had to go to the emergency room for gallbladder removal surgery.

      Remember to say a prayer for your mom or light a candle for her when she start the apple juice treatment, okay? Let me know when she is starting and I will do a healing prayer for her also.

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      • 234

        P.S. 11mm is not too big for a gallstone to be flushed out naturally. Dr Emil said The Epsom Salt will soften the bile duct and he said also at his blog to some people that stones around 11mm to 15mm can be passed out, especially if the stones are elongated. My gallstone was 22mm long but it is long and thin, not round.

    • 237

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      Everyone that had gone through this natural gallbladder flush experienced things differently during the purge. During the time when apple juice is taken, there should be no pain.

      During the purge on Day 6 evening, there may be some slight discomfort to some aches or pains – in the stomach due to the Epsom salts setting up our system to purge or have diarrhoea, maybe at the gallbladder area due to the contractions of the gallbladder when it pushes out the stones or bile after the lemon juice/olive oil is taken.

      On Day 7, some people (including myself) felt a soreness in the gallbladder area (below our right breastbone) but my healer, Master atan, said it is normal to feel that after the gallbladder had worked very had in purging out the stones.

      But most people reported right after the purge, there is no more serious pains at the gallbladder area.

      It is important to note that if pain persists or there is an increase of pain during and after the purge, it is best to go to the hospital just in case any stone could be stuck somewhere, just to be on the safe side.

      The natural gallbladder cleanse, if successful, will give one a lighter, healthier feeling with more energy and alertness, with good digestive health. If unsuccessful, the cleanse may cause more pain. So, it is a gamble for those who are willing to try anything to save their gallbladder before they go for surgery as the last option,

      Hope this helps….

      Good Luck to your mom!

    Hi dear ChoeSF,
    I purged this morning 1:30am – 8am… Diarrhoea for nearly 8-10 times… most of my ‘stones’ are small size like sesame, but few are like peanut size. Most are dark(black?) in color. I skip the 8am morning epsom salt bcoz the last 3 b/m only came out liquid without any solid things(is it same as what you facing when u did ur purge, ChoeSF?). And actually during the preparation days which drinking the apple juice, I actually facing diarrhoea for everyday…


    • 239

      Hi there, dear John :D

      I’m so glad to hear from you. Congratulations on your successful gallbladder cleanse! The dark green stuff is what we like to see as they are the gallstones. Yes, you did right by not taking any Epsom Salt at 8am since you had purged so many times already. We only take the salts when we didn’t purge anything the night before…so the extra dose of Epsom salt is to give it the extra “push” to encourage bowel movements. :wink:

      Every cleanse will have different results and is a different experience, even for myself. Be sure to drink more fluids today as you had so much diarrhoea during your apple juice drinking and during the purge. You can drink isotonic drinks (like 100-plus) if you don’t have packets of mineral salts at home. Take some multivites, too, and have a nutritious light meal. I like to have chicken, carrots and tomatoes rice porridge in the morning of Day 7.

      Hope you will feel better from now on with your health!

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      P.S. On my cleanses – there was one where I could see dark green stuff for 2 BMs, another time it will be for 3 to 4 times, and then just 1 time only for 1 flush. As long as we see dark green stuff when we purge, that’s good. A visitor here who had tried the purge earlier check on her stools and even by Day 8 or 9, her stools still had dark green stuff inside.

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      When I was detected with a 22mm or 2.2cm long gallstone, there was a sharp pain at my gallbladder area every time I press gently there. Now, I have no pain already after doing my first gallbladder flush.

      There is no guarantee but 11mm gallstone should be okay for flushing out.

    John said,

    dear CHOESF,
    I roughly counted I think only purged out around 20 something ‘stones’. Well, but all of my ‘stones’ seems soft, even the black color one. Doesn’t seems like calcified one.
    And the question I am asking actually is “did u also experience with few b/m without the ‘stones’, then u notice tat’s all for the purge?”

    With best wishes,

    • 245

      Good evening, dear John :D

      Yes, the gallstones are soft looking because drinking the apple juice have softened them for passing easily through the bile duct. However, some people (one of them was my friend) have calcified solid ones that was passed out and sank to the bottom of the toilet bowl.

      Yes, during one cleanse…after the first few bowel movements have got rid of the solids in the body and I started to purge just water and oiive, that’s when I could see the gallstones floating in the water. After one or two times of seeing the gallstones, then nothing is passed out anymore…just more water and olive oil. That would be all for that 6 days of gallbladder purge.

      Then wait for the next round of cleanse (like 3 weeks for urgent cases like mine, to every 4 or 6 months later after more than 3 initial cleanses) where we will see more dark green or yellow/brown gallbladder stuff been purged out again.

      I read that once we have cleansed our gallbladder for the first time with this natural method, then the gallstones from the liver and other areas will move forward and enter the gallbladder. That’s why even after my 5th or 6th (I have lost count of how many times I did my flushes :oops: ), I still see dark green gallstones.

      So, just keep on doing the flush to maintain our health every 4 to 6 months and until that time, when we notice that we no longer flush out any gallstones, we have completely cleanses out gallbladder and liver system and thereafter, we can do the flush like once a year or something like that. Some people reported doing 10 flushes and some up to 20 flushes before they don’t have gallstones.

      Hope that helps….

    in this case what food only mom can eat?

    • 248

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      On Day 6, lunch is the last meal your mom will take.

      On Day 7, she can eat already and it is good to start eating light foods, e.g. rice porridge, noodle soups, soups, etc. Then when she feels her stomach can handle her usual foods, then she can eat normally already. It is good to avoid eating too much oily, fried foods.

      Among all my gallbladder flushes, only for the first flush did I feel a dull ache at my gallbladder region on morning of Day 7. It could be due to my large 22mm gallstone being passed out because for the rest of my 4 or 5 flushes later, I didn’t feel any more pain on Day 7.

    so inne dit is better take juic eflush after go bakc again there?
    what do u think?

    • 250

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      I’m sorry, I don’t quite understand what you meant there :oops: …if your mom has no pains after finishing her medicine, then your mom can go ahead and start drinking the apple juice and then do the purge in 6 days’ time.

      It may take a few flushes before an ultrasound scan will show no more gallstones. Sometimes, what was shown as a single gallstone in the ultrasound scan could actually be a clump of stones stuck together and these stones may be purged out slowly.

      If after the 1st flush your mom did, there is no pain, then your mom can continue to do a few more flushes before seeing a doctor again.

      Again, please note that everyone here going ahead to do this natural gallbladder flush will be doing it at their own risk, and that this flush is not 100% successful in avoiding surgery. :idea:

      Hi there, dear aira :D

      There is no fixed number of flushes to do in order to be free from stones. I have done about 6 flushes and I still have gallstones in the last purge. Just so we don’t get sick of drinking so much apple juice, it is best to leave at least 3 weeks before each flush for urgent cases. For maintenance of health and wellbeing, we can do the flush once every 4 months or 2 times in a year. :idea:

    Feedback from Mandy ===>

    Hi, My name is Mandy, i’m from South Africa.

    2 weeks ago i went to the doctor for pain in my stomach and found out I was suffering from severe gallstones and was told it was critical and that i should have it removed immediately. i had these pains for over a year and with time it just got worse, until i started vomiting, feeling light headed and the pain was becoming unbearable. Any way, i didn’t want to go for the operation. so the day after i came from the doctor i i did some research, my mom emailed this remedy and said i should try it. i didn’t think it would work and made the appointment with doctor and he would’ve charged me over R30,000.00. wow that was a lot of money. my mom said ti me that i should just try out this remedy and see what happens, after all, what did i have to loose.

    Monday i started with the apple juice, i drank 1.5ltrs of apple juice a day. before every meal and after every meal. i did this for the 5 days. when i experienced pain i would take some strong pain killers to help. And on the 6 day i did as it say, don’t eat after 2pm etc. And on the 7th day out came about 40 stones, 3 huge ones, and plenty small ones. i will be doing the same procedure again in 2 months time. because they did say i have a lot of stones.

    but i have to say it does work. just try it “,)

    • 256

      Hi there, dear Jaz :D

      I’m very sorry to hear that you have gallstones :sad: .. many of us who have done this natural gallbladder flush can certainly empathise with you and understand any reservations you may have of trying this flush.

      I felt like you did at the time my doctor advised me to remove my gallbladder about 3 years ago….and my fear of surgery and the gallbladder removal gave me strength to try out this natural flush. My Feng Shui Master and Healer, Master atan, had recommended this natural procedure to remove gallstones to many people in the past few years and all of them had done this flush successfully, without the need for gallbladder removal surgery.

      I have done about 6 gallbladder flushes since then and today, I STILL HAVE MY GALLBLADDER, which is functioning normally and I can eat rich, creamy, fried, oily foods without any pain, gastric pains, bloatedness, terrible nausea or headaches – all symptoms of a gallbladder with gallstones, which I felt when I wrote this post.

      If you follow closely the instructions on drinking the apple juice, and when to take the Epsom Salts, Lemon Juice and Olive Oil…and read the comments of other readers here, you should have a good gallbladder flush.

      However, if you feel any unbearable pains on Day 6 during the purging process, you must go immediately to the hospital…but so far, I have not had any feedback from people having to go to the hospital on Day 6. This is just a precaution for you.

      As an added measure for success, you are most welcome to request for prayers for a successful and safe gallbladder flush, and a good healing of gallbladder here :-

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    I think my last gallbladder cleanse was almost a year ago and I am beginning to feel a “fullness” in my gallbladder. Well, I am certainly way overdue for cleanse. :oops:

    I am starting another natural gallbladder flush tomorrow (Day 1 on 15 July, 2012), with Purge Day/Day 6 on Friday, 20 July, 2012. I have bought 6 litres of unsweetened apple juice already.

    Anyone who would like to clean their gallbladder and liver are most welcome to join me, so that we can motivate each other and have a mini support group here. :idea:

    Remember to get your Apple Juice, Epsom Salts, Olive Oil and Lemons ready! :wink:

    With best wishes,

    choesf :D

    P.S. This is also a gentle reminder to those that have done a gallbladder cleanse successfully before to now do a follow-up flush. :idea:

        Hi there, dear friends :D

        Today is Day 6 of my Gallbladder Flush. I have decided to take an easier approach this time – I will follow take just 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salt with 1 cup of juice/water at 6pm and 8 pm, as per Dr Lai’s instructions above. :wink:

        On the previous 2 flushes, I had taken 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts instead to encourage more purging.

        Lunch was light just now of 1 cup rice with 3 types of vegetables and some egg.

        Some tips while waiting for the gallbadder flush to happen on Day 6 evening – get ready the following items :idea: ===>

        1) some good comedy movies to watch – to distract the mind from the effects of the stomach after the lemon juice and olive oil are consumed.

        2) ample toilet rolls and good reading material in the washroom

        3) get the things for tomorrow’s breakfast ready tonight – tomorrow (Day 7) you may be too tired

        4) it’s good to have some aromatherapy in the room for relaxation

        5) delegate all house chores for today and tomorrow to family members so that you will have peace in mind while doing the flush

        Good Luck in your flush!

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    I just had my first dose of Epsom Salts – aarrrghhh..it tasted horrible as usual. :roll:

    Here’s how to make the Epsom Salts more palatable and easier to take :idea:===>

    1) take a sip of juice, swirl it around the whole mouth to coat the mouth. Make sure the tongue is completely coated. Swallow juice.

    2) take a deep breath, tilt the cup of Epsom Salt solution into the mouth in such a way that when you drink, the solution will go straight down the throat quickly

    3) don’t register the yucky taste of the Epsom Salt in your mouth…instead, try to play a song in your head. This way, the brain doesn’t register the terrible taste.

    4) after drinking all the Epsom Salt solution, quickly have a sip or 2 of juice to mask the awful taste (that’s difficult because somehow the taste seems to stick in the whole mouth!)

    5) thereafter, quickly gargle your mouth with water…if you prefer, you can gargle with mouthwash, too! :lol:

    With best wishes,

    choesf :D

    P.S. I have another dose of Epsom Salts at 8 pm…and the worst part for me that I am not looking forward to at all is the Lemon Juice and Olive Oil drink! For those of you that suffers from gastric pains or your stomachs can’t take too acidic a drink, add about 1 tablespoons or 2 of honey. :idea:

      3cm galltone (second flush) said,

    3cm gallstone said,

    Just an update. You remember I posted late last year and did a second flush after passing over 100 stone the first time (2 were 2.5cm in size) and the next flush I flushed about 50 small ones. I have returned to the doctor with more pains (it had been better but still an issue). I have been referred to get my gallbladder out so I asked for a final scan to see if the large stone was still there. I came home tonight from the scan and the stone is there however it looks to be smaller. (2.3cm)The doctor says it can’t shrink but the surgeon told me you can’t flush stones either. So it looks like surgery for me. It was worth a try though and I didn’t suffer as much pain after the flushes. However I did watch what I was eating a bit more and avoided spicy food.

    • 272

      Hi there, dear 3cm gallstone :D

      Thank you for sharing your experience here. If you are still suffering from pain after the flushes, it is advisable to go for surgery to remove your gallbladder just like what the doctor recommended. The pain could be a sign of inflammation of the gallbladder. :sad:

      Nonetheless, I’m glad to hear that the natural flushes do reduce the stones somewhat..from 3cm to 2.3cm after 2 flushes.

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    I went through my comments here and concluded that I had done in total 6 gallbladder flushes since I post this article – the first 3 was done within 3 months.

    1st Flush – 27 April 2009
    2nd Flush – 14 May 2009
    3rd Flush – 4 July 2009
    4th Flush – 12 May 2010
    5th Flush – 26 December 2011
    6th Flush – 20 July 2012

    Ideally, once you are diagnosed with gallstones and you decide to try out this natural gallbladder flush, it is recommended that you do the first few flushes within a short period.

    Thereafter, try to carry out a gallbladder flush every 6 months. I should do that twice a year, instead of just once. :oops:

    Hi, my husband was told by his Doctor ,that he has a gallstone size 20.4mm, he does not want to go for surgery,do you think that this home remedies will work for him ,since his stone is pretty big?

    • 275

      Hi there, dear naty :D

      I’m sorry to hear that your husband has a large gallstone, too. :sad:

      I can’t say for sure this method will definitely work for your husband – different individuals have different results. However, he can try this method of flushing gallstones naturally and see if it will work.

      If there is pain experienced before, during and after doing this natural gallbladder flush, then it is best your husband opt for surgery to be on the safe side. I am worried his gallbladder may be inflamed.

      However, if the pain goes away after the flush, then it is strongly recommended the he does another flush 3 weeks after the first one, followed by one more flush in the next 3 weeks. Hence, he would be doing 4 flushed in 8 weeks (we don’t count the 6 days period of the flush).

      Thereafter, if his digestive system is better and he doesn’t have pains anymore, he can do a flush every 6 months.

      Good Luck!

    Hi, Just went to the doctor on Friday with horrible pain. Diagnosis: inflamed/irritated gallbladder. Still tender today. I was given pain meds and told to drink clear fluids. I ate an apple and a peach as well as some homemade broth with noodles.The broth had onion, garlic, and ginger and soy sauce. Since yesterday, other than what I ate today, I’ve been drinking tea (ginger, peppermint, chamomile, garlic, catnip, honey) and apple juice with acv. Oh, and water.

    I also put a charcoal poultice over my gallbladder and overnight, an onion poultice. The pain is less today, I took a pain pill this morning but didn’t need one the rest of the day. I only took one tonight to make it easier to sleep.

    I am supposed to have an ultrasound on Monday to see if there are any gallstones. Am going to continue with the juice, etc. and if there are gallstones, wait til the inflammation goes down and then do the flush. If anyone has any advice, I’m open.

    I’ll try to update as I go along.


    • 278

      Hi there, dear Juliette :D

      I’m very sorry to hear of your gallbladder pains :sad: – the pains can be very agonisingly sharp to bear.

      It is good that you are on a light, healthy diet with lots of liquids like teas and juices. If your ultrasound scan shows up a or some gallstone(s), you can try doing this natural flush once your inflammation has subsided. When you go on the flush – be sure to read up on the information here so that you are sure of what to expect and what to do. Different people have different results and the most important thing is to do repeated flushes. :idea:

      Good Luck!

      Sorry I didn’t update sooner. I had my ultrasound last Monday. The doctor’s office called on Wednesday. There is some sludge and several small stones. They recommended (of course) consulting with my doctor or a surgeon about what to do, which probably would have ended up with removing the gallbladder.

      I continued the charcoal and onion poultices and eating lighter than usual. The pain was basically gone by the weekend. However, on Sunday, I went to a vegan bar-b-que at a friends house and ate a little too much. I think the main culprit was the tofu and the homemade coconut ‘ice cream’. Ended up with an attack Monday.

      I’m back on mainly juices today and did a poultice last night. Inflammation seems to have gone down some already tonight. I’m going to continue the light eating tomorrow and do the flush tomorrow night. At least that’s the plan. Otherwise, I’ll do it this weekend.


      • 281

        Hi there, dear Juliette :D

        I’m sorry to hear that the ultrasound confirmed your gallstones :sad: – but at least your gallstones are small and they can be passed out easily with the flush. However, for the flush to work effectively, you have to be sure that you are drinking 1 cup of apple juice (fresh or bottled type) 4 times a day, until flush day. The apple juice will soften the stones, making them safe and not painful to be passed out. :wink:

        Good Luck with your flush, and thank you for sharing your experience here. :idea:

        With best wishes for good health,

        P.S. I read quite some years ago that taking a chinese tincture called “Gold Coin Grass Tincture” will help to break up the gallstones naturally and slowly. I will post here once I have successfully find Dried Gold Coin Grass here and made some tinctures. Right now, I think this tincture is available for sale in USA but not here in Malaysia.

      Hi, I did the flush last night. I took my epsom salts and then the olive oil/lemon juice. The first round of epsom salts was surprisingly not that bad. But by the time I took the last one this morning, it was absolutely disgusting. I took a sip of apple juice after each one to clear my mouth of the taste. I’ve done salt flushes with regular salt before and that’s 16 oz at a time, so this was easier except for the taste.

      After I took the olive oil/lemon juice mix, which was a little hard for me to get down (I don’t like the lemon juice that strong), I lay down on my right side on the floor. We were watching a movie so that helped distract my thoughts. Surprisingly to my delight, I felt no nausea, no pain, a tiny bit of heartburn, but nothing else out of the ordinary. We went to bed around 1 and I woke up around 8. I took my last doses of epsom salts and had some juice and an apple.

      It’s 11:30 now, and about 5 mins ago had my first purge. Wonderful! Wow! I didn’t expect it to work. I had 5 stones, about 1/2 cm each, then half a dozen or so, maybe more, very tiny ones. I’m definitely going to do this again in a few weeks just to be sure.

      Thanks so much for your blog that has helped me do what I needed to do.


      • 283

        Hi there, dear Juliette :D

        Thank you for sharing your experience here.Congratulations on your first successful gallbladder flush! I’m very happy for you! :wink:

        You flush went very smoothly indeed. Luckily, you had taken another dose of Epsom Salts in the morning as you only purged out the stones at almost noon time on Day 7. Just to be sure, the soft stones that you had flushed out were the dark green ones, yes? They definitely look very different than any of the sludge material floating in the toilet.

        Go for another 2 flushes (that is, if you can bear drinking the Epsom Salts, Lemon Juice and Olive Oil so soon) within the next 2 months before you go for your next ultra sound scan. Sometimes there are stones in the liver and ducts and they move down into the gallbladder when the gallbladder has emptied from the flush.

        Another thing to observe – do you feel very light and energetic right now? It’s as if your body has gone through a major detoxification and you feel very good now.

        The next test to see if your gallbladder flush was successful is to eat your favourite rich, creamy foods )that used to make you sick before) and see if you don’t get sick anymore. :idea:

    • 291

      Hi there, dear Marilyn

      I’m sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with gallstones, too. :sad:

      If you are still experiencing pain after the flush, it is best to see a doctor. For some people, this flush may not work and they will have to go for a gallbladder removal surgery, or stay on a low-fat diet. As in anything, there will be some failures with the successess.

      The only way to confirm if your gallstones are still there is to go back for an ultrasound scan. But from what I have read, when the gallbladder is emptied, gallstones will move down from the liver and ducts into the gallbladder. It may take many flushes, even up to 10, before one is completely cleared of gallstones.

      In your case, because there is pain, you should go see a doctor immediately. :idea:

      Take care and Good Luck!

    I purged only once @ 1 pm @ day 7 that was the biggest purge but I didnt saw anything that was a greenish one…Y?

    • 296

      Hi there, dear Iva :D

      I’m glad you tried out the flush already – if you had purged once or had a bowel movement once only, you will not see anything green among the stools or faeces. The reason why it is good to purge more often is so that our bowel system is cleaned of all the faeces and when we still purge after that, it will force the gallbladder even more to push out the bile or softened stones. It is like those cases of extreme vomiting or diarrhoea that result in bile to come out, too?

      How many times of Epsom Salts and Lemon Juice/Olive Oil did you drink? Was that on Day 6 only?

      For those people that only purged once, then it is good to take another round of Epsom Salts on Day 7 when you wake up, e.g. 8 am, and then another round two hours later at 10am….by then you should be having diarrhoea.

      About the amount of apple juice of 900ml that you drank, I’m not sure if that affected your purge. Some people purged only once but because they didn’t have diarrhoea often, they will not see any green stuff.

      About the diet I had during the Day 1 to Day 5, I just ate normally as usual. On Day 6, which is Purge Day, I eat lightly and try to avoid meat…I noticed that gives better results for purge.

      You can do this flush again in one month’s time, if you like. If you still experience pain when you eat oily foods after the purge, that means it wasn’t successful for you. :sad:

      On my first gallbladder flush, I felt a soreness or tenderness around my gallbladder area on Day 7. I checked with my healer, Master atan, and he said that is normal as the softened stones had moved along the bile duct, stretching the duct. On Day 8, the soreness was gone. On my subsequent flushes, I no longer feel any soreness in my gallbladder area…so, it was only that first time. :idea:

      Good Luck!

      With best wishes,

      Hope you have better results the next time.

      Hi there, dear wendrela :D

      Good Luck with your purge! In case you didn’t have any diarrhoea and you only had a bowel movement (your usual one on Day 7 morning), go ahead and have another cup of the Epsom Salt drink (same as the evening before) right away, and another one if necessary in 2 hours time to promote the diarrhoea.

      Be sure to drink lots of water during diarrhoea to prevent dehydration.

      As a precaution, be sure to see a doctor immediately if you experience bad pains at the gallbladder region. But most people usually didn’t have such pains.

      Hi there, dear Pam :D

      I’m sorry to hear that you have gallstones, too. Someone went for a scan after carrying out this remedy and found her stone was still there, but slightly reduced in size.

      For myself, I have not gone back for another scan to see if my gallstone is still there as I do not want to pay the money for the scan…I am feeling great and I no longer have any gallbladder pains since I first did this flush, plus I can eat rich, oily foods without any pains, too.

      I read that it could take up to 10 gallbladder flushes before we are completely free of gallstones because even if we empty the gallbladder with the flush, there will be other gallstones from the liver and the ducts to fill the gallbladder. Hence, the regular and continuous flushes that I still do. :wink:

    hi dear..

    thanx for all ur suggestions…
    my experience was totally different from others…
    on day 6 when i took the first dose of epsom salt around 6 o clock everything was fine
    by 7 i had my first purge…then within 1 hr i had 14 purges and i was totally exhausted..
    then again at 8 i took the second dose of epsom salt and i purged about 3 times till 10 o clock…
    at dot 10 i took my olive oil and lemon mixture and i slept…i did not purged that night …when i wake up next morning that whole day i did not purged …
    i was so disappointed and thought that this method is not gonna work for me and i have to go for the operation..but my husband was very much positive about this thing he told me wait for another one day..
    i took the epsom salt and olive oil and lemon mixture again on that day
    after taking the olive oil and lemon mixture i vomited the whole mixture within half an hour …i almost cried and lost all my hopes …i slept around 11 pm on that day..

    when i wake up on day 8 and had my first purge i passed around 10 mini stones i was so happy when i saw those stones…
    after that i purged about 3 more times that day…and i passed about 50 more stones …the largest was about 8 to 10 mm ..

    i will have my second flush after 2 weeks then i will go for the ultrasound …

    will post my comment after that..

      Hi there, dear wendrela :D

      Thank you so much for sharing your experience here. Wow, you were very strong and brave in persisting (you also have a very loving, encouraging husband to help you) until Day 8 for your purges. Good for you, you are one brave woman indeed! :D

      How did you feel after the purges on Day 8, i.e. how did you feel on Day 9? Do you still have any pains? If you had any pains from eating certain rich, oily foods before the purge, can you eat those same foods without any problems now?

      Good Luck with your next flush and ultrasound scan!

    i was perfectly fine on day 8 and 9 ..i never had pain before but i was having heart burns so i went to doc and he told me go for an ultrasound then only i found out that i have gall stones the largest one was 10 mm and many other small stones…
    surgery was the only thing they suggested me…
    so i searched for the pros and cons …
    i can pay for the surgery but i will never get my gall bladder back..thats why i opted out…

    i was searching net that whole night and found this site..

    this method was so simple so i thought i should give it a try …

    well on day 8 i had a mild pain in my gall bladder area but now its gone

    for now i am on low fat diet
    coz i heard that the stone formation is all becoz of cholesterol deposits..
    i ate chicken yesterday that was bit oily but i didn’t had any heartburns

    anything else u want to know about my experience pls let me know i will love to answer that…

    i want to know when should i start my second flush?
    and how many flush should i try….

    • 307

      Hi there, dear wendrela :D

      Thank you for your feedback. You can start your second flush when you feel “ready” to go through the whole process of drinking apple juice and the purge (and vomiting in your case)…around 2 to 3 weeks. Nowadays, I am terrified of the Epsom salts and lemon juice/olive oil taste and I would delay my flush until I feel “ready” for it. :oops: :lol:

      I try to do 2 flushes a year but I usually ended up doing once every 9 months or so. But for my first 3 flushes right after I found out I had the 22mm gallstone, I did all 3 flushes within 2 1/2 months, I think.

      It is okay to have a slight ache from the gallbladder area after your first flush because that is the effect of the gallstones been passed through the bile duct, and not to worry about the ache, it is normal and will go away after a day. For my subsequent flushes, I didn’t feel that same ache anymore.

      I don’t know if you can find this Jiaogulan Tea but it has very good effect (among many others) for healing our digestive system. After one month of drinking that tea, my digestion is much, much better and the tea can cut the oil from our food intake, and we pass out the oil in our bowel movement the next day. Try to see if your local Chinatown shops sell this tea or you can try to order online :idea: ===>


      Good Luck with your next flush!

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    I just found out about this natural remedy of dissolving or reducing size of gallstones so that they are easier to pass out. Not sure if it works but it involves the drinking of adzuki tea – adzuki is red beans and the Chinese often make a sweet soup dessert or tong sui out of them. :idea:


    It may be worth a try….

      Good! I’m glad that you are about to start your second gallbladder cleanse. Hope you will have a successful flush. For my previous flushes, each flush was a totally different experience from the other. On some flushes, I had diarrhoea like crazy…while on other flushes, I only had an occasion or two on Day 7 to go to the toilet. On some flushes, I could see lots of dark green softened gallstones, on some, lesser ones..Today is my Day 3 of the apple juice drinking. :wink:

    Tania said,

    I am very interested to see if your large gall stone has been flushed. Mine is around the same size (1.9cm). I know many people have asked you about a second ultrasound and I think it’s totally necessary, regardless of cost, as you are advising people (even though you take no responsibility). I have read that scientist have proven that the mixing (combination) of olive and lemon juice will form their own “stones” in the gall bladder even taking on the same colour as bile(green), which will eventually pass out during a purge and float in the toilet. Real gall stones don’t float.

    My gall stone doesn’t cause me any problems. As a matter of fact it was only recently discovered as an after though of a scan of my liver because blood test results indicated something with the liver. I have never had any pain or discomfort. I eat a pretty healthy diet. So while you state you are feeling better therefore you don’t need an ultrasound to know its gone, could it perhaps be to a change in diet rather than the stone is gone. Like me, I wouldn’t know it was there, except for an ultrasound test two weeks ago.

    I would encourage you to get another ultrasound. Therefore, you would be able to speak with much more authority. Also for myself being the same situation as you. I just want to know if it REALLY works rather than flushing out “stones” that were most likely made from the cleanse itself.

    • 314

      Hi there, dear Tania :D

      Thank you for your advice and thoughts on the gallstone flush and my getting a second ultrasound scan. I understand why I am encouraged to get an ultrasound scan but like I have mentioned before, I do not want to spend the unnecessary money when I feel alright already. This physical proof is enough to convince me that I am alright ===> after my first gallbladder flush, I no longer feel any sharp pain in my gallbladder region when I press down hard and deeply into that area. Before my flush, there would be a sharp pain even when I brush lightly into that general area.

      My diet is the same now as before I found out I had an ultrasound scan confirming I have a gallstone. I still consume the usual fatty and rich foods as before.

      My post here is meant to share my experience of trying out this natural gallbladder flush as an option to try before we go for the ultimate surgery. When one is faced with the prospect of a gallbladder surgery, there is so much fear that one is driven to try alternative methods for gallstone relief. As with all alternative healing methods, most doctors in their responsibility to their patients will not recommend their patients to go for that as they will be sure to carry medical risks, which can be real.

      Yes, real gallstones that are in the gallbladder and as seen in the pictures of those gallstones removed from the gallbladder surgery are hard like stones and will not float.

      But during this apple juice gallbladder flush method, somehow the apple juice softens up the gallstones, making them float, while the heavier ones will sink to tbe bottom of the toilet bowl.

      Though some people say that the floating green stones are from the olive oil, I do not believe that is so as there is too much green colour and that shade of the green is really a dark green. Anyway, once we have purged out the solids in our stools, we can see the olive oil being passed out again in the toilet bowl (the olive oil will float in the water in the toilet bowl), and it is the same colour as the olive oil we had drink with the lemon juice.

      I know, there will be some people and websites debunking this natural method of flushing gallstones, but I believe there is a higher percentage of people who had successes with this gallbladder flush, than those who failed and had to go for surgery or remain on a low fat diet for the rest of their lives.

      For me, as a person who had to face the option and fear of a gallbladder removal, doing this natural gallbladder flush has kept me from having to go for surgery, I have no more pain in my gallbladder region when I press deeply into that area, and I can eat any kind of rich foods without any gallbladder pains for 3 years now.

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

    thanks for ur feed back …will post mine after the flush..tomorrow is my first day..wish me luck…

  127. 317

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    Today is Day 7 of my 7th Gallbladder Flush. I just remembered that I didn’t post any feedback of my 6th flush before :oops: .

    On my 6th Gallbladder Flush – I decided to take my flush easy for Day 6 and I just drank 1 teaspoon (instead of an increased dose of 1 tablespoon to increase the diarrhoea effect) of Epsom Salt at 6pm and 8pm. I didn’t have any diarrhoea at all and I only had 1 bowel movement at 7pm on Day 7. Because I didn’t continue taking the Epsom Salts on Day 7 morning, I didn’t have any more bowel movements that day. However, I feel the lemon juice and olive oil would still have done some part in cleansing my gallbladder and liver. :idea:

    Back to my 7th Gallbladder Flush – again, I took just 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salts with water at 6pm and 8 pm, and the 250ml mixed Olive Oil/Lemon Juice on Day 6.

    Right after my second dose of Epsom Salts, I had to go to the toilet. However, after that, there was no further bowel movement until this morning, Day 7, at 8am and at 11am. So, altogether I had gone to the toilet 3 times only…at the last visit, I noticed there were less than 5 softened gallstones floating – 2 about bean sizes and the rest were small ones.

    Below is my personal opinion and thoughts as well as some tips on the natural gallbladder experience after having done 7 flushes :idea: -

    1) if by the 8pm dose of Epsom Salts on Day 6 you still have not gone to the toilet yet…….increase your 8pm dose to 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts to increase the purge effect….the purging effect or watery stools is to help dilate the bile ducts and cleanse out bowels of solid wastes so that we can see the results of the following visits to the toilet.

    2) because there is purging or watery stools to be expected, please drink lots of water on Day 6 up til before drinking the Lemon Juice/Olive Oil….we need to keep our body from dehydration during the purges…because by the 3rd to 4th visit to the toilet……you will be passing mainly water and olive oil only. I forgot which flush I had before – I had around 15 visits to the toilet until Day 7 afternoon.

    3) the first and second bowel movements are to clear our bowels of the food intake from earlier the day … they will be almost totally watery stools

    4) at the earliest by the 3rd bowel movement or visit to the bathroom, you should see some solid shapes floating in the toilet bowl water. These are clearly not your solid wastes as they look different – they are either elongated or round and the colour is usually green to very dark green

    5) the shade of green of the gallstones seen floating (the heavier ones will sink to the bottom of the toilet bowl) depends on the time they are passed out – the earlier the darker they will be. The gallstones can be a very dark (almost black) green to light green.

    6) the sizes of the softened gallstones passed out are not the actuall gallstone sizes seen in your ultra sound scan, the gallstones have been softened and have increased in size, and therefore, their original sizes should have been smaller

    7) radish/daikon juice or soup can indeed help break down gallstones – during one of my earlier flushes, I had consumed the Miracle Vegetable Soup below – it has daikon/radish – during that flush, I had the best results of gallstones purges – almost the entire surface of the water in the toilet was covered with very soft , very dark green material -


    I had drank one bowl of that soup in the morning and one bowl in the mid afternoon of Day 6, before the purge. I never saw the same type of dark green mass on the other gallbladder flushes where I didn’t drank the radish soup.

    8) drinking the Epsom Salts is really yucky – my stomach is churning as I am typing this, thinking about that awful taste :roll: — to make it easier to drink the Epsom Salts, this was what I did – have 2 sips of cold apple juice and then drink the Epsom Salts quickly …followed by another 2 sips of cold apple juice. Then I sucked on a mint candy/sweet.

    7) drinking the Lemon Juice/Olive Oil is also yucky – I would add a tablespoon of honey to make it more palatable…stir the mixture hard and fast with a small fork and then drink it down in one go, quickly. The honey helps to prevent any gastric pains and good for people with a sensitive stomach.

    8) yesterday, I did things a little differently from before ===> I had a small bowl of rice noodle in simple soup at 11.30pm because I was hungry and I wanted to prevent a heartburn that was threatening to happen. Plus, I kept burping the lemon juice and olive oil smell. I had a small bite of brownie, too. :oops:

    So, it is okay to have a little snack around midnight of Day 6 if you are hungry from no dinner.

    Okay, that’s it for now. The feedback above serves only to give you an idea of what to expect roughtly. Please note that each of your gallbladder flush will be very different and therefore, your experience may be different from mine. :wink:

    Good Luck in your gallbladder flush experience!

    With best wishes,

    choesf :D

    • 318

      P.S. Expect to burp a lot and/or have the lemon juice/olive oil reflux back to your throat/mouth after drinking that mixture. If it gets too bad, you can take a tablespoon of Gaviscon or liquic antacid to prevent the acid reflux. I did that last night. :idea:

      Hi there, dear mamta :D

      I’m sorry to hear that you havea gallstone stuck in your bile duct. It must be very painful for you. :sad:

      Frankly, I am not sure if this method will help with your stuck gallstone as I have had no feedback from anyone with the same situation as you. However, if you should decide to try this natural flush, you must be prepared for any risks involved, e.g. if you feel more pain during the purge on Day 6, you should go to the hospital emergency room immediately. Be sure to drink 1 litre of apple juice a day for 5 days – the apple juice helps to soften the gallstones.

      Good Luck!

    Good Afternoon, I’ve just had an ultra sound reporting a 3.5cm strone, taking up nearly 50% off my gallbladder. Nothing but surgery has been disscussed at this stage. And the surgery would by my entire gallbladder. Will this breakdown that large of a stone?

    Thank you,

    • 324

      Good morning from Malaysia, dear Kelli :D

      I am so sorry to hear of your gallstone – that’s really large at 3.5 cm! :sad:

      Honestly, I am not sure if this natural method will work for a stone this size – I think it will not be flushed out. If you are not experiencing any pains at the moment – perhaps you can try drinking radish juice daily. I have found that can help to reduce gallstone size but it will take time. For gallstones that are too large to come out from the gallbladder into the bile duct to be flushed out, this natural apple juice method can also help to reduce the gallstone size slowly over time. Hence, it is good to do this flush regularly even if have some stones that still cannot be passed out….but if more pain is experience, do go to the hospital for treatment immeidately.

      Good Luck!

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    There have been so much feedback and questions posted to me on this natural gallbladder flush – here are some from the earlier ones which I have pulled from my other post “Natural and Safe Method of Removing Gallstones” -

    1) Paul said at Comment # 4 (click on his name to see a picture of his gallstones passed out during the flush) :-

    I recently used Dr Lai Chiu Nan’s instructions and passed around 40 stones. See the image I proudly took of the recovered stones. A follow up ultrasound unfortunately still showed several stones, with the largest, according to the radiologist around 10mm. But I certailny could tell from the image that there were at least 40 less stones, as the Gallbaldder was much less crowded.This radiologist along with most in the medical fraternity are very sceptical of this proceedure, and all say the only option is to remove the Gallbladder. That is a last resort!

    As you can see from the image, the largest is approximately 3cm x 1cm, so I should be able to successfully pass some more this coming Saturday. My first attempt took till 24 hours after the 10PM ingestion of Olive oil and lemon juice to show results. I was becoming despondent before the fruitful results finally showed.

    I still have had a couple occasions of several hours overnight of pain and discomfort after eating food containing fat, but the attacks are less since this first purge.

    Hopefully any inflamation will subside and surgery won’t be necessary.

    2) Paul said at Comment # 11 ===>

    Hi Dropby,
    I’ll comment for you, but others more qualified will probably comment as well.
    I have done the flush 4 times now. The last was Saturday just over 1 week ago. Of the 4 flushes the 2nd (see my post above) and the most recent (4th) flush were the most successful. This last flush passed a similar number and size stones as for the 2nd flush. These latest stones were obviously older and showed signs of calcification covering the stones. I hope I have now purged most of them, as I haven’t had any discomfort since this last purge. I will do probably a 5th purge in another 3 weeks time. Hopefully not many will pass. Otherwise there will be a 6th purge. When I am satisfied that they are all gone, I will likely do the flush once every 6-12 months as a way of “preventative maintenance”.

    If you have a 7cm stone, then you may not be able to pass it successfully and safely. But many people have one or more large stones that don’t cause discomfort. Generally it is multiple stones and many small stones that cause inflammation in the gallbladder and/or duct sludge causing irritation and blockages.

    Any inflammation may reduce or completely disappear once most of the stones and sediment have been flushed. So wait a while longer and continue with the flushing, but be guided (within reason) by your doctor to make sure the pain (and inflammation) don’t increase. If the inflammation doesn’t heal, then for health and safety an operation may be necessary. But at least we can say we tried other methods before surgery. This should be the medical fraternities approach as well.

    ramen said,

    I just saw you blog through facebook. A friend of mine “liked” the post about this natural remedy and decided to check it out since my mom had a gallbladder surgery last year and didn’t know about this then. Anyways she has her gallbladder removed and was advised to carefully monitor what she eats now – from sweet to salty to oily. I would just like to ask if even though i have no gallstone problems (i think) is it possible to try this process for myself? you know, just to be sure. prevention is still better than cure (and by cure i mean hospital/surgery cure)

    • 327

      Hi there, dear ramen :D

      Thank you for dropping by here and sharing your mom’s experience for her gallbladder surgery. :wink:

      Actually, this natural remedy to cleanse our gallbladder and liver is best carried out when we have no gallbladder problems, because by the time we find out we have gallstones through ultrasound scans, the gallstones may be too large to be removed naturally. My 2 daughters have done this flush as a health maintenance/regiment so that they don’t end up like me, having to face gallbladder surgery.

      So, it is alright and will be good for you to do this flush to keep a healthy gallbladder and liver. Right after the flush on Day 7, you will feel like a totally, newly rejuvenated and energised person! :wink:

    My reply copied from my other post :-

    Hi there, dear Yvan :D

    I’m sorry to hear of your gallbladder pains – I know the pain is terrible!

    On how the gallstones can pass out through our bile ducts – the apple juice drinking over 5 days will soften the gallstones so that they can go through effortlessly through the bile duct into the intestines for passing out of the body. Some people have fished out the softened gallstones and can be squeezed or pressed easily. We don’t feel the stones passing through the bile duct but after the cleanse, we can fee a soreness in the general area of the gallbladder.

    About any people that had brought the flushed out gallstones to the lab for verifications, I have copied some links and information below :-

    1) http://www.relfe.com/gall_stone_cleanse.html ===>

    Some people (including doctors) will say that your gall stones are not gall stones but fecal matter. To quote from Dr Lewis:

    “To clarify the situation and eliminate such questions, I sent a sample of gall stones to a medical analysis lab run by a Ph.D. who heads up the Science Department at Texas Woman’s University in Denton. He ran the necessary tests…

    His analysis of the stone sample I sent was 91% cholesterol and the rest was bile salts, water and inert ingredients. In other words, the sample had the chemical contents of gall stones. And the report clearly states it was gall stones”.

    2) http://www.relfe.com/gall_stone_reports.html describing how the gallbladder is cleared of stones after the flush

    3) comments # 24 at – http://journals.worldnomads.com/thedukeoearl/story/5962/Thailand/1%C2%BD-Day-Gallbladder-Flush-Recipe describing ===> “A second ultrasound after the last flush showed less stones than the original scan for diagnosis, after 2 months of medication for a suspected stomach ulcer, but the radiologist wasn’t interested in my story. Another non-believer!”

    4) http://www.henriettesherbal.com/faqs/medi-3-11-gallbladder-flush.html

    From: Sara Klein Ridgley, PhD SaraKlein.aol.com

    I tend to agree with you somewhat on the nature of the soluble stones. However, when I did the cleanse both for myself and with clients, what I found was both kinds were there. In several cases where the people were scheduled for gallbladder surgery and we did the cleanse beforehand, there was no sign of the stones upon ultrasound scan. One woman, who was 86 at the time (11 years ago), collected the stones (that were rock hard) and put them in a jar, and took them to her physician. She announced that “this doctor from America (I was visiting another country when this happened…) took my stones out”. The doctor first thought that she was nuts, but when she showed him the jar, he went white in the face. Then he ordered another ultrasound and found the gallstones that were there the week before were gone. This woman is still alive and kicking happily and in good health!


    Some useful information on how to maintain a daily, gentle gallbladder/liver flush from “What The Doctors Don’t Tell You – The Gallstone Flush” -

    If you drink this drink all in one go, first thing in the morning (an hour before eating breakfast) it will flush
    and detox the gallbladder and liver. In addition, the drink restores the pH of your saliva, which in turn helps
    you to absorb the nutrients from the food you eat.
    1 organic, unwaxed lemon
    1 tablespoon (15ml) cold-pressed, unrefined extra virgin olive oil
    ½ pint (10 fl.oz/300ml) of room temperature (NOT chilled) spring or filtered tap water
    Wash the lemon and cut into small pieces, rind included, removing any dark bits. Place in a blender
    with the water and olive oil and blitz for 60 seconds. Strain and drink, using a straw if necessary.

    I have around 15 stones of size 10mm in gallbladder.Doctors adviced removal of bladderwhich i dont want.

    Does this really work if we follow the above .

    • 330

      Hi there, dear Bhanu :D

      I am sorry to hear that you have gallstones, too. :sad:

      You can try this method of flushing a few times and see how they go for you. Once you have tried once, you will know how to refine your future flushes for better results.

      Most of the time, people are worried about the stones being too big in the gallbladder to move into the bile ducts, and whether the stones can get stuck in the bile duct.

      Those fears are quite valid but there are some information which may help to allay those fears :-

      1) drinking the apple juice helps to soften the gallstones until they can easily be passed through the bile duct. The degree of softness is similar to soft dough that we can easily smash up.

      2) although the ultrasound scan may show up a singular stone, it could be smaller stones stuck together to form a large stone. The ultrasound scan will not show up the tiny details. With drinking the apple juice, the clump of stones may be loosened and passed out of the gallbladder.

      Next, weigh your fears and see if your fear of the gallbladder removal surgery will give you courage to try this flush and see if it works for you.

      I cannot say 100% that this will work for you because everyone’s experience is different. You will have to try it and experience for yourself.

      Good Luck!

And he is a hep B carrier so is there anything that we need to take note of? Doctor suggested that he go for the operation when it grows bigger as they are not sure if it’s stones or tumors ? Can i try this method? And after the 6th day flushing, how long is the rest period before he can try for the 2nd time?

      Hi there, dear Ivonne :D

      I’m sorry to hear that your husband has got gallstones detected, too :sad: – however, they are very small in size comparatively, and I can say he will have more success with trying out this natural remedy to flush out the gallstones. :wink:

      The person who taught me this method was Master atan, who is my Feng Shui master and he is also a very good healer. So “ngam” that he had yesterday launched a FAQ on this natural method of removing gallstones at his forum here :-


      If you like, you can also post your question there for him to advise you. He has done the gallbladder flush for 20 years already.


      For me, because I was in urgent need to flush out my gallstone 3 years ago, I did 3 flushes within 2 months plus…so, your husband can do another flush 2 weeks after his Day 6 completion of the flush.

      I am not sure if there is anything to watch out for Hep B carriers :oops: … but you can ask Master atan that question also. He will know what to do. It is a free service there at the forum. :wink:

      Good Luck with your husband’s flush!

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      • 333

        P.S. Sorry I missed out your other question :oops: – yes, you can try this method as well, although you have not had any ultra sound scans confirming you have gallstones in your gallbladder. In fact, it is good for anyone to do this flush regularly because everyone will surely have gallstones in their gallbladder due to our modern day, fatty diet. This flush not only cleanse the gallbladder of stones, it will also cleanse our liver. As a result, we will feel so energised and alert and healthy after the flush and our digestion will improve after that. So, by all means, do go ahead and do a gallbladder flush yourself, too…at the same time, you will be providing “moral support” to your hubby by going through this experience together with him at the same time. :wink:

        Hi, i’m trying this on my husband right now, as he never took his dinner tonight. Will this cause him to have gastric pain as sometimes he will have gastric attack. Thanks.


      • 337

        Hi there, dear Ivonne :D

        If you husband is prone to gastric pains, you can add about 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey to his lemon juice/olive oil drink. If his stomach is too acidic or he is suffering from heartburn, he can take a tablespoon of liquid antacid like Gaviscon….or suck 2 tablets of Antacid. I find the liquid one gives the fastest relief. :wink:

        Good Luck with your husband’s flush!

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

        P.S. If he feels hungry, he can take little sips of apple juice now and then. On 2 occasions, I was too hungry by 11pm and I had to eat bread or simple noodle soups….but then, the purges were not as good. :oops:

      • 338

        Ivonne Ng said,

        Hi, is it ok to take hot drinks like Milo or Horlicks? For precaution measure, can he take gastric pills now? When will the purging takes place, midnite or tomorrow morning? Sorry to trouble you. Thanks alot.


      • 339

        Hi there, dear Ivonne :D

        Hope your husband would have purged by now. :wink:

        Yes, because he has gastric pains history, it is best to take a small hot drink like those you have mentioned. Purging should have started after 8pm to 10pm, but if he never had a bowel movement until this morning, then he can drink the Epsom Salts again when he wakes up, and one more time 2 hours later.

    • 341

      Hi there, dear Angelique :D

      It is better for you to wait until you have your baby before trying out this natural gallbladder flush. For some people, the purging they get can be really severe and I am worried that it may be risky for your pregnancy if you do get severe diarrhoea. :wink:

        hmmm yeah maybe i should wait for my give birth. But i am afraid that maybe my gallstone will get bigger sooner? but i don’t eat fatty foods tho i always drink coconut juice and lots of water. my size of gallstone is 6.2 x 1.9 cm the wall is not thickened. what does thg mean? is it small and not that bigger like others that really need to have surgery? and when i try the apple juice thing what will happen will i see the stones when i poo or pee? does it hurt when stones are going out? I’m curious thank you! youre a big help…

      • 343

        Hi there, dear Angelique :D

        Gallstones don’t increase in size quickly if you are watching what you eat and avoid the oily foods. Is your gallstone 6.2 X 1.9 cm, or mm? If mm in size, it is still not too big. You can try a few flushes after your delivery and see how they go. There is no pain at all passing out the gallstones, big or small and are passed out as poo. That’s why we drink the Epsom Salts to encourage frequent purging to cleanse our bowel system of foods first, and then when we pass out clear liquids and the olive oil, we can easily see any dark green to light green roundish or elongated stuff floating in the toilet bowl water….and we can count how many there are. :wink:

        When I did my first gallbladder flush, there was a different kind of pain, a milder pain and not like a gallbladder pain, at my gallbladder area…possibly it could be the large softened (by the apple juice) gallstone passing through the bile duct….just for a few hours. I never get that same pain in my subsequent flushes.

        Take care and do have a safe, smoothsailing delivery of a healthy baby! :D

        angelique romero said,

        hello there really appreciate your reply :) you are too nice! ahm, nope its cm not mm. was that mean its too big already? :/ and if it does i can still do the apple juice thing to dissolve it?

      • 345

        Hi there, dear Angelique :D

        If it’s a 6.2 cm gallstone, then that is too big to be flushed out. :sad: Some people had problems even with 2.2 cm gallstones. Do you have a facility in your country where they can use some technology to break up the large stones?

        The apple juice doesn’t dissolve the gallstones, especially large ones. The edges of larger stones get softened only a little each time we do a flush and may not be flushed out through the bile duct.

    hey l tried this method it really worked. Surprisingly l had a diarreah for three weeks and some severe pains on my upper abdomen. Two CT Scans where carried they said everything was ok. Pains continued that at times l thought l was going to die. My dietician helped me to do the apple juice, epson salt, lemon gall bladder cleansing. Instead of lemons l used grape fruit. The largest stone was 2cm. This natural remedy is a healing from God. God is good all the times.

      Hi there, dear Mandla :D

    • 349

      Hi there, dear angelique :D

      A 6.2 cm by 1.9 cm stone is really huge, almost filling up the whole gallbladder. :shock: Perhaps, the measurements refer to your gallbladder? Since it is mentioned that the “wall is not thickened?” It is best that you refer back to your doctor for clarification so that you have all the information and know what you need to do with the flush later. :wink:

    • 351

      I’m so sorry to hear you have pains now :sad: – I can think of 2 types of pains that are more painful than childbirth (and I have had 4 children already) ===> gallbladder pains and gout pain! :roll:

      Because you are pregnant, it is best that you consult your doctor to see what is the best for you. I am not sure how many months pregnant are you but I am sure doctors would not dare to prescribe you really strong painkillers at this stage. Therefore, you may need to go for surgery before the foetus/baby grows too large and presses against your gallbladder.

      The severe pains at the gallbladder area are mainly caused by 2 reasons :-

      1) inflammation of the gallbladder

      2) gallstones with sharp edges/points poking against the wall of the gallbladder, hence the sharp pains that can make you jump

      Hope you have relief from you pains soon!

      With many comforting hugs,

      choesf :sad:

    angelique romero said,

    omg i just used a pain killer. what will happen? hate the doctors because what they told me is i shouldnt eat fatty foods thats all because they cant give me any medicine because i am pregnant I’m now 5 months pregnant btw, and they said we should wait for my give birth but it sucks whenever i feel this pain its hard cant even move :( i dont want to feel this again :(

    • 353

      When we are pregnant, it is best to take as little medication as possible, because whatever we take, the foetus takes, too. But the gallbladder pains are so bad that over-the-counter or pharmacy-bought painkillers just don’t work at all. When I had gallbladder pains before I started this flush, I had to go to the hospital emergency room and they gave me very strong medication before the pains went away. Of course, the doctor told me then that i must have my gallbladder removed (that was around 3 years ago).

      I really empathise with you, you are in a really difficult and painful situation – pregnant + gallbladder pains :sad: , but the doctors are right – cutting out the fatty and oily foods will reduce the gallbladder attacks. But you need the calories for your baby to grow well. Have more fish or chicken, and have them steamed or grilled instead of fried.

      Why don’t you ask my Feng Shui Master and Healer, Master atan, for advice at the link below. He was the one that taught me this method and he may have some solution for you. Register at the forum there and post your questions for help. Yours is a really tough situation :-

    Thank you for all your input. I have just spen the past 90 minutes going through all of your posts. I have recently been told that I have to have my gallbladder removed which made me very nervous. I had a surgery (possiably not needed as I did not get better from it ) 3 years ago and the result was a bad infection of the entire incision area which runs from just below my bellybutton to just below my sternum which required another surgery to fix, so naturaly I am very scared of another surgery. Due to all the scar tissue from the 2nd surgery the new surgeons I now have told me that they could not do a laporoscopy type of surgery, they actually have to make an incision just below my ribcage on the rightside. Although the new team of Drs I have seem to be much better (some of the best in the nation from the research I have done on them)then my old Drs, I am still afraid of the outcome.Having also researched the possiable sideffects of having the surgery I decided to do my own research on possiable non-invasive cures for gallstones. Yours is the 4th site I have come to that talks about the “cleanse” approach, so I think I will try it as the sideffects of having the surgery listed on other sites seem rather seveare! I am a 49yr old male living in Denver Colorado, USA. So the eastern medical practices are not given much regard by the majority of the physicians here,but I feel that it has been around for thousands of years so they must be doing something right! I am going to put your site onto my desktop and keep you informed of my progress since you have gone through all the trouble of keeping your site up to date with regards to your own expierence. It’s 3am so time to sign off, just another Thank You for being someone that cares as I don’t have many people to talk to about this. :)

    • 357

      Hi there, dear Robert :D

      Thank you for sharing your experience here – I am very sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with gallstones, too :sad: . Your past surgeries’ sounded so scary and if I were you, I would have an extreme fear of any surgery now, too.

      Most of the people who are willing to take the risks to try out this natural method of removing gallstones are those that have to face surgery for gallbladder removal. It’s been more than 3 years since I first did this flush and I have done 7 flushes by now to avoid having to go for surgery to remove my gallbladder.

      Although I have not gone back for an ultrasound scan to see if my gallstone is still there, my gallbladder health has improved by leaps and bounds since I do the natural flushes regularly (twice a year) – I no longer feel any pain in my gallbladder region when I press down hard into that area, I can eat rich, oily, creamy, fried, spicy, sour foods and not get gastric pains, severe indigestion, etc. However, as I am 50 years old, I still do get the occasional slight indigestion now and then, which can be easily fixed by having a cup of Chinese tea. I have not changed my diet to adjust to my gallbladder condition. :wink:

      I must caution that the gallstones may not necessary be flushed out in the first flush, you may need a few but most people reported relief from their gallbladder attack symptoms after their first flush. But do not give up hope, do more flushes (I did my first 3 flushes within 3 months) and see if you feel better.

      If you need any clarifications on the gallbladder flush, do let me know and I will be more than happy to address them here. :wink:

      Good Luck in your flush!

    hi I was diagnosed w a 1.7 cm gallstones near the neck of my gallbladder in 2007. in 2009 I had a severe attack n diagnosed w infected gallbladder because the stone had lodged itself at the neck. after some acupuncture n Chinese herbs, the pain was gone as the stone fell back into the gbladder. now the pain is back for 3 full days and esp at night. I think the stone is lodged at the neck of the bladder again. I really want to try the natural remedy n know the risks but after reading so many reports of success n don’t want to opt for surgery. what do u think?

    • 359

      Hi there, dear zionkch :D

      I am so sorry to hear that your gallbladder is giving you pains now :sad: – gallbladder pains are really sharp, worse than childbirth (I have 4 children) and so, I can empathise with you the suffering you must be going through now. :sad:

      Have you seen a Western doctor and been prescribed medication for your pains, or had an ultrasound scan to see if the stone is indeed lodged at the neck of your gallbladder now?

      For situations where the gallstones are stuck in the neck of the gallbladder, doing this flush may be difficult and not successful. For the usual cases of gallstones found in the gallbladder, those than can come out through the bile duct and excreted during the natural flush will come out. Those that are too large to be flushed out will stay in the gallbladder. With subsequent flushes, those stones may eventually be purged out.

      However, if your stone in stuck in the gallbladder’e neck, there is no guarantee that your stone may proceed into the bile duct and be excreted. I worry that you may suffer more pain because during the purging process, the lemon juice/Epsom Salts and extreme diarrhoea make the gallbladder contract to push out bile and softened gallstones.

      Perhaps, you should have an ultrasound scan done first to confirm if you have a gallstone lodged in the neck of your gallbladder. The doctor would definitely advise you that you will require surgery to remove your gallbladder. But if is found that you don’t have a lodged gallstone, then you can do this flush. It is better for you to be sure and then do this flush with as little worries as possible.

      Hi there, dear mitch002 :D

      Yes, you do this natural flushing of gallbladder even if you don’t have any gallstones diagnosed and you are in good health. This is a very good way of cleansing our gallbladder and liver at the same time, as the cleanse helps to improve our digestive system and increase energy levels. I often observed a very healthy feeling with much improved digestion after my cleanses. Despite not eating much, not having enough sleep (due to frequent visits to the bathroom) and with so much purging on Day 6, I had a lot of energy and vitality on Day 7 (and a good appetite, too). :wink:

      Hi there, dear janawoonlam :D

      Depending on the size of the lemons and their yield in juice, it is best to use a measuring cup to get 125ml of lemon juice. If we count by number of lemons, we may end up with too much or too little juice. In Malaysia, the lemons are small…while those in the US are really huge in size. :lol:

        Are you in a lot of pain now? I am not familiar with thickened gallbladder condition. Are you due for surgery very soon or you are on medication to manage your pain?

        Do you have time to try out some alternatives that can perhaps heal your gallbladder – but I don’t know how long they will take to do that, if at all they are found to be effective. For example, burdock root can heal the liver and kidneys and is good for the gallbladder…it’s just that nobody has tried it with your type of gallbladder condition. Have a look at the information at my post and read up in the Internet about burdock root :idea: ===>

        My condtion seems to come off and on. I can go 3 months without any pain and then it will return. I’ve had this for 4 years. I just barely had the money to go to the doctor in last dec and they found that my gallbladder was inflamed and they put in paper work that I had chronic cholecystis. I haven’t done anything about it yet just thinking. I noticed that I only have an attack at night. But lately now I been okay again I been just jucing and eating fruits and having soups. I’m a bit scared to eat anything else. I think my gallbladder needs a rest. Since I didn’t have pain for 3 months I was eating out and enjoying myself and now it just seems that the pain returned. I will try burdock though. Perhaps I can add that to my juicing. I also drink alot of apple juice all day and water. Maybe that’s why it has stopped acting up on me. Thank you again. =)

      • 387

        As you are not in chronic pain and surgery is impending, then perhaps you may be able to do the natural gallbladder flush after a month of “calming” your inflamed gallbladder first by taking burdock root for a while. Burdock root also has anti-inflammatory properties and balance the energies in the liver and kidney areas, on top of its healing properties.

        Then when you have no gallbladder attacks for a month or two already, you can proceed with this natural gallbladder flush. :idea:

        Good Luck!

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

        P.S. I am not sure how much juice will be yielded, the burdock root is quite dry. You can either blend a 1-inch long fresh burdock root with your apple and some water, and then drink that….or you can cut up half a stick of burdock root (it’s about 30 inches long), boil in 7 cups of water (simmer when water boils) for 1 hour…when cooled, store the decoction in the fridge..and drink 2 cups daily. :idea:

    1) Is it advisable to prepare the lemon juice in the afternoon? Will mix with the olive oil only at 10pm on day 6. I’ll be manually juicing out the lemon juice.

    2) Just to check, I can only drink apple juice & water after lunch on day 6 upto 6pm before I have my 1st drink of the Epsom salt with a cup of warm water at 6pm, right?

    Hope to hear from u soon. Thanks!

    • 391

      Hi there, dear janawoonlam :D

      Yes, you can prepare the lemon juice in the afternoon, but be sure to cover and refrigerate it until use at 10pm. Just in case you will be too “busy” tonight to do so.

      About the Day 6 after lunch diet – it is not clear, some websites said to refrain from drinking even water after lunch. For me, I will drink water or some juice, but as minimally as possible…because I can’t stand the hunger pangs.

      For one of my gallbladder flushes, I was drinking the Tateshi Kazu Miracle Vegetable Soup throughout the first 5 days, and on Day 6 at 4pm, I even drank a bowl of that soup (just the liquid, not the vegetables). For that flush, it was my most successful flush ever !

      Congratulations on a successful gallbladder flush! Wow, you are one brave person to continue with a second round of Epsom Salts and Lemon Juice/Olive Oil on Day 7 – that would be the best thing to do to really push for maximum flush, since we were already on 6 days of apple juice drinking. :D

      I’m happy that your flush went well and now you can rest your body after the cleanse. Yes, 3 weeks later for next purge date on 2 April, 2013 is good. :wink:

      I am now thinking of doing my 8th flush (or is it 9th, I have lost count) but I haven’t scheduled a date yet…hmmm, maybe I should time mine flush date with yours so that we have support here. :lol:

      By the way, do you feel different now after the flush, than from before – like I had mentioned before, a sure sign that the flush is successful is when we have no more pains, our digestive system is better and we can eat oily/rich foods without any problems already. :wink:

        Hi Choe, I’ve typed the wrong date, purging date schedule on 13/4/13 sat (if no changes).
        I noticed i don’t feel bloated after meals. My stomach feels more “empty” after the flush. My meals normally are light & not oily and I haven’t tried taking oily food so far after the flush. So unable to comment at this moment. Overall, I feel good. Thanks so much :)

      • 397

        Hi there, dear Jjwoonlam :D

        I’m glad you don’t have the usual after meals bloatedness already..that is also a good sign **thumbs up**

        After doing 7 gallbladder flushes, I still don’t look forward to the Epsom Salts and especially the Lemon Juice/Olive Oil drinks – they are really yucky and I tend to procrastinate my flushes because of them. I will post here when I start my flush..should be asap for my gallbladder health maintenance. :roll: :lol:

    I did the Flush last sunday, it was successful, thank you everyone.
    and now..Should I follow diet or can eat all the food items.please advice if I need avoid anything.

    • 399

      Hi there, dear Selvi :D

      Congratulations to you, too, on a successful gallbladder flush! It seems you did the flush at the same weekend as Janawoonlam here. Good for you! :D

      After the flush, you can eat normally already – no need to avoid any food items. Actually, now it is the time for you to “test” if your flush was really successful, i.e. your gallbladder pains are gone, you can eat rich foods without any problems, etc. But do start eating lightly first like porridge or soups to ease your body after the flush back to normal. :wink:

    I tried this remedy n it worked well. though there isno pain but there is still a bit of stiffness and a bit of swelling in that part. do I need to repeat this process again or what should I do next.. I have flushed about 10 stones…

    • 401

      Hi there, dear Ankit :D

      I am sorry I don’t know anything about the stiffness and swelling around your gallbladder area :oops: …but if you are interested in doing another flush, you can start again the apple drinking in 3 weeks’ time from now. Good Luck! :wink:

    hi,. I have 4 stones around 4-6mm in size in my gallbladder. Last 2 week I do my flush and its work. maybe this sunday I want do my second flush.

    • 404

      Hi there, dear rehan :D

      4 to 6mm sized stones are not too large, about the size of the bile ducts and shouldn’t post much problems being flushed out. Even for the second flush, you have to follow drinking the apple juice for 5 1/2 days, so…if you start drinking apple juice this Sunday, your Purge Day/Day 6 will be on Friday evening. :wink:

      Good Luck on a second successful flush!

    Gurpreet Kaur said,

    I’ve a gallbladder stone n I want to try your Natural remedy but I’m scared of the consequences like you’ve strictly mentioned TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK..Sir I stay in a hostel n I really want to know what bad consequences one can have if not worked out properly??

    • 406

      Hi there, dear Gurpreet :D

      I am very sorry to hear that you have a gallstone, too :sad: – I have mentioned a disclaimer for anyone here to try this Gallbladder Flush at his or her own risk because I do not want to be held responsible if anything untoward happens to him or her. This is an alternative method to remove gallstones, while the only other options are to go for gallbladder removal surgery or to live in pain most of the time. :sad:

      So far, most people I know or those that have provided feedback here have good results of the flush. There were 1 or 2 people who still had pains after the flush and had to go for surgery.

      If the flush didn’t work, then surgery is the only option. However, if the flush is successful, surgery can be avoided as long as we do this flush regularly, like every 6 months in my case. :idea:

      If you read up on the comments here and be well prepared with the information on the gallbladder flush, you should be alright because many people had gone through this flush successfully already. The worst case scenario is being dehydrated from too much purging. I don’t think a gallstone can get stuck in the bile duct as the stones are already very softened from the apple juice drinking…it’s either the large stone stays in the gallbladder or if the bile duct can accommodate the stone, then it will be purged out.

      Good Luck!

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      P.S. You can say that the fear of the gallbladder removal surgery is a very strong drive and motivation for us to go through this gallbladder flush for the very first time! :wink:

    rehan said,

    hi, I want to ask you… u have done so many time flush already. every time you flush did the stone pass out or your gallbladder is clean from stone already. tq.

    • 408

      Hi there, dear rehan :D

      The only way to know whether my gallbladder is cleared of stones would be to do another ultrasound scan…which I didn’t do. However, I never had anymore gallbladder pain attacks, no more gastric pains, and I can eat any rich, oily or creamy foods without any problems already. Sometimes, we can still have gallstones in our gallbladder but we don’t have any problems. Just be sure to continue doing this flush every half yearly to maintain good gallbladder health.

      But this flush may not work for some people whose gallstones may be too large to be passed out, but Master atan at his forum said that his latest Dhealing Basic Blood Remedy can break up gallstones. You may want to check out that information and ask him your questions there, too :idea: ===>


      Master atan is a Professional Healer and he was the one that introduced Dr Lai Chiu Nan’s method to me.

      I think you wanted to do a second flush, right?

    I am waitng for your reply


    • 411

      Hi there, dear Shilpi :D

      I am very sorry to hear that you have gallstones, too, and I certainly do understand your fear of surgery to remove the gallbladder. :sad:

      However, your gallstones are relatively small in size and you will have a higher success rate with this natural gallbladder flush. Just read the instructions carefully on what to do from Day 1 to Day 6, and what to do on Day 6 evening, which is the gallbladder flush time.

      I know there are many comments here already – but if you scroll up from the bottom here…you will find a lot of information and tips, too.

      Good Luck!

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      P.S. Don’t just stop at doing one or two gallbladder flushes only…continue doing that for at least once a year, if not half yearly and your gallbladder health should be good. Sometimes, the gallstones (especially the larger ones) may take up to a few flushes to come out. Each individual’s experience of the flush is different from the others.

  167. 412

    weburway said,

    thanks for your reply…

    Is is necessary to have green apples only and are there any side effects of this remedy

    Please confirm me so i can start this as soon as possible

    • 413

      Hi there, dear Shilpi :D

      It is not necessary to have green apples only, red ones will do as well. It is believed that green apples are more effective in softening the gallstones. You can eat the apples or drink the juice.

      There are no side effects of the gallbladder flush – if you follow the procedure closely and be careful of becoming too dehydrated (drink more water on Day 6 morning, less later) during the purging, you should be okay. Many people are worried about the stones getting stuck in the bile ducts but the stones are really softened and the forceful purging/diarrhoea from the Epsom Salts will flush out the stones with bile.

      Please note that if by midnight of Day 6, you still have not gone to the toilet….you must drink the Epsom Salts again immediately when you wake up on Day 7, and again at 2 hours later….

      Or if you want to guarantee purging immediately on night of Day 6, increase immediately your dose of Epsom Salts from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon. 1 teaspoon may not be enough to trigger purging for some people. We need to purge a lot so that the first 2 times will clear our intestines and colon of solid food wastes…thereafter, the subsequent purges will be mainly water, some olive oil and that is when you can see dark green stuff floating in the water.

      Good Luck with your flush!

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

      P.S. Tip – Try to avoid eating meat on Day 6, if possible, and eat non-oily light meals – this will keep the gallbladder as full as possible with bile so that by the evening, when we drink the lemon juice and olive oil, the gallbladder will have more force in flushing out the bile, together with the stones that can come out into the bile duct. :idea:

    Please read the information below to know if what you are flushing out are indeed gallstones or just soap stones :idea: ===>

    1) click on ===> Ending the Olive Oil Soap Stone Myth

    This report has a lengthy, detailed explanation..be sure to read the whole thing…..

    “4. Millions of people all over the world have reported success with the liver flush. If it were useless, it would not
    have spread through word of mouth like it has. An ongoing liver flush survey on CureZone.com has shown that about
    75 percent of the people who have done a liver flush have benefited from it (please note that for lasting improvements, one must ensure that all the stones are removed from the liver and gallbladder; doing just one liver flush alone is not sufficient).

    World renowned Dr. Thomas Rau, of the Biological Medicine Network and Medical Director of the 50-year-old
    Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland, who has used my liver flush protocol for over a decade now, confirms that it has
    greatly benefited thousands of his patients. He says it is very easy to prove the effects of the liver and gallbladder flushes through ultrasound.

    In every case where ultrasounds showed dilated bile ducts before doing liver flushes (because of their congestion with gallstones), they showed complete normalization after liver flushing. Author and naturopathic physician Alan Baklayan has also been using the liver and gallbladder protocol to help his patients effectively normalize their cholesterol levels. And I have received letters/emails from hundreds of physicians stating that they, too, found the liver and gallbladder flush to be their most effective method of helping their patients heal from a multiple range of disorders.”

    Comments # 146, # 159

    To quote from Dr Lewis:”To clarify the situation and eliminate such questions, I sent a sample of gall stones to a medical analysis lab run by a Ph.D. who heads up the Science Department at TexasWoman’s University in Denton. He ran the necessary tests…His analysis of the stone sample I sent was 91% cholesterol and the rest was bile salts,water and inert ingredients. In other words, the sample had the chemical contents of gallstones. And the report clearly states it was gall stones”


    3) http://www.henriettesherbal.com/faqs/medi-3-11-gallbladder-flush.html

    I tend to agree with you somewhat on the nature of the soluble stones. However, when I did the cleanse both for myself and with clients, what I found was both kinds were there. In several cases where the people were scheduled for gallbladder surgery and we did the cleanse beforehand, there was no sign of the stones upon ultrasound scan. One woman, who was 86 at the time (11 years ago), collected the stones (that were rock hard) and put them in a jar, and took them to her physician. She announced that “this doctor from America (I was visiting another country when this happened…) took my stones out”. The doctor first thought that she was nuts, but when she showed him the jar, he went white in the face. Then he ordered another ultrasound and found the gallstones that were there the week before were gone. This woman is still alive and kicking happily and in good health!

    i started this 2 days back and today is 3rd day of drinking apple juice, i have few questions so please reply
    1: here at my place i tried alot for green apple but its not available so trying with normal apples, does it make any difference???
    2: i have to drink apple juice for 5 days not the 6th??

    • 424

      Hi there, dear Sanjeev :D

      It is okay, red apples will work, too. They say that green apples work better in softening the gallstones…but almost all the time, I drank red apple juice or ate red apples.

      You can drink the apple juice until 6pm on Day 6 – so, it is more like 5 1/2 days of apple juice.

      Good Luck and Success on your first gallbladder flush!

        as i told you me and my wife both are having this gallstone problem, she was having regular pain so she started first and today its her first flush, she took epsom salt at 6pm and 8 pm thn olive oil and lemon juice mixture at 10, she did her first flush, it was greenish liquid but no stone as according to doc she is having one big gallstone 20.3mm in size..can u pls tell how to check that her gallbladder flush is just ok, what diet she can have today?
        thanks :)

      • 426

        Hi there, dear Sanjeev :D

        As her gallstone is quite large, it may take a few flushes to remove it…but each subsequent flush should be able to reduce the size of the stone a little bit, until it is small enough to pass into the bile duct for flushing out.

        You mentioned that she was having regular pains…did she get any relief from pain after her flush?

        She can start with a light diet today and if she feels up to it, she can eat normally already.

        For better advice and guidance, you can post your questions at Master atan’s forum here :idea: ===>

    • 439

      Hi there, dear Reema :D

      My husband is a diabetic, too, and I have not got him to do any gallbladder flush (yet) as I still don’t know how diabetics can do this. :oops:

      It’s just not the sugar from the apple juice drinking only that may be a problem but it involves fasting also and diabetics can get hypoglycaemic.

      Check out the information from Curezone . It suggests some oil-free, gluten-free soups to be taken to prevent the hunger. It seemed a few diabetics had done the flush (liver flush is the same as gallbladder flush) successfully, but I would feel that every individual is different in terms of reactions.

      For the apple juice, I think eating a green apple each time instead of drinking apple juice would be better – less sugar.

      Hope this helps…

    i would double check if the total 1/2 glass of olive oil and 1/2 glass of lemon is 250ml? (as it is quite a lot to me)
    i had been using the “Miracle Vegetable Soup ” for 2 months and wonder if it also help in this case so i could reduce the intake of apple juice.
    Thanks Choesf

    • 441

      Hi there, dear Bic :D

      I am glad that you are trying this natural gallbladder flush/liver cleanse while you are healthy. It will help prevent gallstones from becoming bigger. I read that healthy people can have many little stones in the gallbladder without being aware of it.

      For all of us diagnosed with gallstones, we only knew we had some/one after an ultrasound scan.

      Yes, you are correct – the total lemon juice and olive oil is 250 ml and yes, it is A LOT! :lol:

      As I am typing this, I could almost taste the lemon juice and olive oil in my mouth right now…after doing 7 flushes, the awful oily taste is stuck in my mind! :oops:

      I am glad you have been drinking the Miracle Vegetable Soup for 2 months now – it should help with this gallbladder cleanse. I noticed for that one flush when I drank the vege soup every day until half of Day 6, I had the best results for the flush. :wink:

      Good Luck and do have a smoothsailing flush!

        I am glad you are trying this natural gallbladder flush out. If your stones are small like sand, then it is much easier to flush out than those of us with large stones. Nonetheless, you should try at least 2 to 3 flushes to be sure of best results. :wink:

        You are most welcome, dear Phyllis :D

        The next 2 or 3 flushes can be done with a break/rest of 2 weeks to 1 month in between each flush. After that, you can take other forms of health teas/drinks/oatmeals to take care of your cholesterol levels to reduce the chances of forming new gallstones. It is good to do a gallbladder flush once a year to maintain a healthy gallbladder and liver. :wink:

      Hi there, dear Liza :D

      Yes, Epsom Salts are actually not meant to be taken orally and in large doses. Hence, the recommendation of 1 teaspoon only of Epsom Salts to be taken here for the flush.

      I am not sure if Epsom Salts is not safe for those with kidney disease .. I can’t advise him as I am not a doctor :oops: … therefore, for safety precautions, your friend should stop doing this natural flush immediately, and should he decide to continue with the flush, he will have to do it at his own risk.

    Hi Choesf,

    New to the gallstone brigade =) I have an 8mm gallstone that was just reported today. Doctors have advised to go in for surgery and I am certainly not interested in removing my gall bladder.

    I am going for Dr. Lai Chiu-Nan’s method as it seems to be quite useful and a much simpler way of losing the stones. Will keep this thread updated on progress.

    A question before I begin though, do I need to make any dietary changes during the flush period? Apart from avoiding the obvious fatty food i.e.


    • 454

      Hi there, dear Ajay :D

      I am glad that you are giving Dr Lai Chiu Nan’s natural gallbladder flush a try so that you can save your gallbladder. A gallstone 8mm in size is not too large and should be reduced in size for easier purging out through the bowels after doing a few gallbladder flushes. If lucky, it may even be gone in the first 2 flushes. :wink:

      You are on the right track in reducing oily/fatty foods for now. Other than that, there is no dietary changes required during the flush period.

      Don’t be disappointed if you didn’t notice any green stones being flushed out in your first attempt. Persevere, be strong and do a second flush after 2 weeks…we should try our best to keep our gallbladder.

      Master atan’s Black Fungus Blood Cleansing (Cholesterol) remedy is very good for reducing the chances of new gallstones from forming as most of the time, it is due to high cholesterol in our body that contribute to gallstones being formed. :wink:

      Good Luck in purging your 8mm stone soon!

    • 459

      Hi there, dear Mr Khan :D

      I’m sorry to hear you have a gallstone, too – you can try this method to flush out your gallstone. Even if it doesn’t seem to work for the first time, be sure to do this flush a few more times as your stone is only 9mm small. :wink:

      Good Luck!

    Yes,its worked good ,but I have one doubt how is epsam salt behaving in human body,is it create any problems,,,please answer

    • 461

      Hi there, dear sathyakumar :D

      I am not sure exactly how Epsom Salts behave in a human body – we take just a bit of Epsom Salts to create a purge process to do the flush. You can do a search in Google and find more information there.

    hi, i am 30 yr old from india. recently i come to know that i have multiple stone in GB, the biggest is 13mm.
    my surgeon told me that there are no medicine for this in science and also told me that better you go for surgery.

    i am very happy to see this natural remedy. i also wanna try this as i dont want to go for surgery.
    but still i am afraid for doing this natural remedy because you said that stone may get stuck in this whole process.

    please suggest

    • 463

      Hi there, dear Sanjay :D

      Most doctors will not approve of this natural gallbladder flush because it is an alternative home remedy to remove gallstones. Although most people fear that the stone may be stuck in the bile duct but after drinking the apple juice, all the gallstones than can enter the bile duct are soft putty and will be flushed out easily during purging time.

      Try to look from a viewpoint of the risks and fear of going for surgery to remove your gallbladder or to try this natural remedy. You will gather courage from there and decide if you want to do this flush or not.

      Good Luck!

    Hi I am 30 yrs old. Recently found multiple gallstone at GB. The bigger one is 13mm. Surgeon advised to go for surgery. But I am afraid of this.
    I started some desi/local medicine recently to crush these stone but they said it will take 2 months time. Then come to know about this remedy. I am confuse between these two .
    What to do suggest

    • 465

      Hi there, dear Sanjay :D

      I am sorry to hear that you have multiple gallstones…but they are not very large and you can do multiple natural flushes to get them out. If you have started on some medicine to crush the stones, then I would suggest that you wait 2 months before you proceed with this natural gallbladder cleanse. Meanwhile, do eat non-oily and light foods (less meat, if possible) to avoid having another gallbladder attack within these 2 months.

      Good Luck!

      Hi there, dear sony :D

      I am sorry to hear that you have multiple gallstones. If you are in constant pain, there may be some gallbladder inflammation due to the stones aggravating the wall of the gallbladder. I have no remedy to remove your pain and I can’t say for sure if this natural remedy will be 100% successful in removing your pain and gallstones. You would have to try it out at your own risk to save your gallbladder. :oops:

    This is 32 yrs Sanjay from India. 2days ago I had unbearable pain at my stomach. I went to the hospital immediately. They said this a gastric attack and after ultrasound I came to know that I have multiple gallstone . Biggest 14mm.theydischarge me after 18 hours after giving medicine for gastric trouble.
    One day after, I felt the unbearable pain again at my stomach again. At this time I went for another hospital. This time they said that the pain is because of gallstone. And immediately go for surgery. After some medication they discharge me and told me to admit for surgery after 1 or 2 day otherwise the unbearable pain will occur at any time.

    Now I am back at home. I m very afraid of this surgery . I don’t want loose gallbladder . I saw your remedy and want to try this out. But afraid of the next attack I can’t bear the pain.

    What o I do
    Please suggest

    • 473

      Hi there, dear Sanjay :D

      I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing gallbladder pains due to gallstones. Because you are having continuous pain, it may be risky to do this gallbladder flush. Your gallbladder may be inflammed or full of gallstones. Also, you may need to do a few flushes before your stones are reduced in size and are flushed out. :oops:

        You said it is risky to do yet. But what do I do.

        How I reduce these stone size before surgery

        Either go for a surgery or wait for remedy

        I don’t want to loose GB.

        Please suggest in brief.

      • 475

        Hi there, dear Sanjay

        Because you are in constant pain, it is risky to do this flush. What if this flush doesn’t work for you? Pain may be due to an inflammed gallbladder or the gallbladder is full of stones and the stones are pressing against the gallbladder wall. What if you experience more pain or your gallbladder ruptures during the flush?

        Given your serious situation, you may have to go for the surgery after all. You will have to decide that for yourself for your own good.

    I have multiple gallbladder stones of 9 to 10 mm in size and have pain above my stomach everytime I eat, even if i eat a soft diet. I am little worried will this natural apply therapy will get the stone stuck in the bile duct and then I will have to go for surgery. What are the risk of the stone getting stuck after the gallbladder flush?? since I have multiple stones..

    • 479

      Hi there, dear Chander :D

      I am sorry to hear that you have multiple gallstones…however, they are not too big and you can try doing a few flushes to get rid of them naturally. When we drink the apple juice, the gallstones become soft like putty, not like hard stones at all, and that makes any gallstones that can get into the bile duct easily purged out. They are not likely to get stuck. There are some other methods of flushing out gallstones which does not incorporate drinking apple juice for 6 days…and for those flushes, hard stones are flushed out.

    hi choesf
    this is sanjay from india.
    i am eating 4 apple in a day. today is my 3rd day and
    i have 14mm stone(biggest) multiple stone at GB.
    i am worried that 6 days (with 4 apple each day) are enough to soften the Gallstone or should i take 4 apple for 10 days ?

    i am little bit confused with these thing…….
    another thing is that

    any particular type of “olive oil” is required for this remedy. or i can take any one?

    kindly answer both question
    thank you choesf.

    • 481

      Hi there, dear Sanjay :D

      I think if you feel that 6 days of apple eating may not be enough, then it should be alright and even better to add on another 4 days. For the olive oil, it is best to drink “Extra Virgin Olive Oil” as that is a better grade than just plain “Olive Oil.”

      I have read on so sites and someone has mentioned here before that if you can’t find Olive Oil, you can drink sesame seed oil as a last alternative. I cook a lot with sesame seed oil and I think that may be more oily than olive oil. The oil drinking is to encourage the bile come out from the gallbladder to counter the oil in the stomach…and the bile will push out any softened stones that are small enough to enter the bile duct.

      Good Luck with your flush!

    I am Sanjay again. Thank you for your reply. I am seeing your all post today and at your post of your 6th day flushing at 45 no. Comment.
    You said warning for those who have a histroy of gastric trouble ,ready your medicine.

    I was also in trouble or gastric attack previously and the doctor gave me some medicine for urgency. These medicine are enough while having trouble in flushing?

    My another question is what are the antacids?


    • 483

      Hi there, dear Sanjay :D

      Sorry for the late reply – my laptop went kaput :oops:

      If you have been prescribed medication by your doctor, it is best to continue with it while doing the flush. Not sure how those medicine would impact on the flush results, but still, it is best to continue taking the medicine.

      Drinking the really sour lemon juice may trigger a gastric or heartburn attack and if that happens, it is best to take antacids, which are to counter the acids in the stomach. The one I take is a liquid type called – Gasvicon.

    I was diagnosed with a 2.1 cm gallstone last Tuesday.The doctor booked me an appointment with a surgeon on August 1st to have my bladder removed.Upon researching I came upon your site and I am going to start the flush process today and will complete it on Friday.I have not had any attacks and for the most part I feel good.I was not aware of any problems prior to an ultrasound I had as precaution for cancer.My mother is currently on her third round of chemo.I would like to know if there a chance of the stone getting stuck in the bile duct when I do the final step on Friday or can the bile duct dilate enough to pass this stone.Thank you in advance for your reply. Ben

    • 485

      Hi there, dear Ben :D

      I am sorry to hear that you have a large gallstone detected, too, and you are lucky it has not been giving you much problem.

      The apple juice drinking will soften the gallstones to become like putty and any stones that can be purged out into the bile duct are soft enough to go through the bile duct. The purging effect (diarrhoea, and from the olive oil) will contract the gallbladder to allow a flow of bile into the bile duct. Any stones in the bile duct will be pushed along by the bile. Softened stones are highly unlikely to get stuck.

      However, your stone is quite large and it will take a few flushes before it becomes small enough or gets fragmented to become small enough to enter the bile duct to be flushed out. The Epsom Salts and Lemon Juice helps to enlarge the bile duct for easier flushing.

      Please note that each person’s experience may be different during the flush – the most important is to be positive about the flush and think of it as an alternative that we can try to save our gallbladder. It is worth a try definitely to do the flush. :wink:

      Good Luck!

        You can drink the apple juice until Day 6 (breakfast and lunch). I take sips of apple juice in the late afternoon if I feel hungry, before the 6pm Epsom Salts drink.

        In case 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salt may not trigger the purging/diarrhoea in you, you can increase the dose to 1 TABLESPOON to be more sure of the purging process.

        Good Luck!

    • 489

      Hi there, dear Sanjay :D

      The amount of lemon juice yielded depends on the size and amount of juice of the lemons. Use a measuring cup for accurate amounts of lemon juice and olive oil to consume. Here in Malaysia, I needed about 3 lemons to get 125ml of juice – the lemons are imported from South Africa. :idea:

        P.S. Sanjay, thank you for sharing your experience here…it’s helps people to get some idea on what to expect when they want to try out this flush for the first time. :wink:

        Congratulations on a successful flush. I read that the darker green, almost black stuff floating in the water during the purge are the older, calcified gallstones. The newer ones are lighter dark green and some are even brownish in colour. Sorry for the gross description. :oops:

        Yes, one of the wonderful effects after doing this flush, i.e. on Day 7, you will feel very relaxed, light and happy…as if your body is thanking you for cleansing your gallbladder and liver. You will find that despite not eating dinner last night and having a late breakfast today, you have lots of energy and optimisim! :lol:

        Do note that although you have passed out some gallstones today, it is best to do at least a few more flushes before you go for another ultrasound scan to check if your stones are still in the gallbladder. With each flush, the gallstones that are still inside the gallbladder (which didn’t make it into the bile duct) will slowly get smaller.

        It is best to watch the foods intake in future to avoid too much cholesterol buildup in the body as that will lead to more formation of gallstones. :wink:

        It seemed that the 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salts also didn’t trigger diarrhoea in you – so, for future flushes, go straight to taking 1 TABLESPOON of Epsom Salts. :idea:

        Do have a wonderful weekend, relaxing after the flush!

      You are most welcome, dear Sanjay :D

      If you don’t feel any more urges to run to the bathroom and purge often, then it should be okay for you to go to work. :wink:

      The energised feeling should last around 2 days, at least for me.

      Try to compare the effects your body felt before the flush, and how you feel one week later after the flush…e.g. :-

      1) you don’t have any gallbladder pains anymore

      2) eating oily or creamy, rich foods don’t give you indigestion or gastric pains anymore

      3) your digestive system is much improved without bloatedness after a meal

      Those 3 signs above are additional effects (other than seeing gallstones that you had flushed out) and signs of a successful gallbladder flush!

    Good morning
    I completed my first flush and it went well.I must say that the olive oil lemon juice mixture was a real treat.I am being sarcastic of course.
    The purging started about an hour or so after my first glass of water with salt and continued until I drank the oil mixture.My insides went into overdrive after that with all the gurgling going on.I woke this morning feeling pretty good and after I ate a whole grain bagel and a glass of apple juice, I had a bowel movement and I could not believe what was there.Two large greenish stones and some other smaller ones.So I am going to ask if that was a successful flush or was that just the remainder of the olive oil mixture I consumed.I do feel a slight discomfort in my bladder region but overall I feel good.I am going to do another in a couple weeks and see I there are any left.
    Thank you Choesf.I hope to hear from you soon. Ben

      Hi there, dear Ben :D

      Heheh, the Olive Oil/Lemon Juice drink was really nasty, eh? :lol:

      Thank you for sharing your experience and feedback here….I am very happy for you that you had passed out some gallstones during your first flush! Congratulations! :D

      Yes, those dark greenish stuff floating are gallstones. There is no way that the olive oil can turn into such dark colour…even leafy green vegetables turn yellow after going through our digestive system when passed out.

      For myself, I also noticed a dull ache at my gallbladder region after my first flush many years ago. However, I never felt that pain anymore. Maybe it was due to the large softened stones being flushed through the bile duct?

      Yes, do a few more flushes to see if there are anymore gallstones being flushed out. If you feel healthy and don’t suffer from gallstones effects (pain, indigestion, etc) after this, you can do a gallbladder flush every 6 months or annually to keep your gallbladder healthy! :idea:

      Good Luck in your next flush!

But we went for sonography and now the stone r broken in to five pieces as earlier they were 1.7 mm and 20mm ans now theri sizes ve become 10mm and 18 mm and they r 5 in pieces after the first flush…so does this means they ve broken down after the first flush. Secondly the first flush was over on 1st july and i m planning to start another from 8th july doing flush do close period will it b harmful as i ll b givving him 8 apple juice per day… some how i was unable to send the msg earlier hence thru this… thanks so much u r indeed blessing in disguise helping everyonr like this …. pls help me out with reply.

      You are most welcome to the gallbladder flush tip, dear Manisha

      Thank you for sharing your feedback on your husband’s gallbladder sonogram result after doing his first flush. I am very happy for both of you that the large gallstone had broken up into smaller ones…thereby making them easier to be passed out in subsequent flushes.

      You husband can start drinking apple juice again 2 weeks from his last purge day (Day 6).

      Thanks to you, now we all here know for sure that large gallstones can break up into smaller pieces, and this will give hope to those with large gallstones diagnosed and who are trying to save their gallbladder from being removed in surgery.

      Good Luck to your husband on his second flush!

    I have a gallstone also i do a the remedy and today is the six days around 12am i go to toilet i see floating but i dont think its a stone bcos its soft and its not circle and also its not color green.please reply.thanks

    • 510

      Hi there, dear Joy :D

      The gallstones that we pass out are usually dark green in colour. They are not necessarily circle in shaped, they could be longish or oval shaped. Also, the stones are softened, due to the apple juice drinking.

      Usually, after a few more visits to the bathroom, there should be more stones being passed out. That’s why it is important to take enough Epsom Salts (if 1 teaspoon of it does not trigger a diarrhoea effect on the evening of Day 6, upon waking up on Day 7, take 1 TABLESPOON of Epsom Salts (mixed with water).

      Good Luck!

      Yes, during the Day 6 purging, we will go to the toilet very often. Do note that the sizes of the softened gallstones passed out are not the actual sizes of the hard stones. We have gallstones in the liver area, too, and we may be flushing out those stones. :idea:

      Hi there, dear Joy :D

      If you are still in pain after doing this natural remedy, I would recommend that you see a doctor immediately. You may be suffering from a gallbladder inflammation and need medication (or surgery).

      If you still experience pain, it may mean that this flush did not work for you.

      Sometimes, we may need to do a few flushes to get rid of the gallstones. To confirm that our gallstones have been flushed out, we need to do another ultrasound scan or sonogram.

      For the lemon juice/olive oil drink – I used a measuring cup, i.e. exactly 250 ml of both. I noticed that the rice measuring cup differ in size and may not hold 250 ml of liquid.

      It is best to wait another 2 weeks after your last flush before you commence the apple juice drinking for your 2nd flush.

      But you should see a doctor right away as you are still in pain. After a successful gallbladder flush, we should not feel any pain already.

      Good Luck!

      With best wishes,

        P.S. You can eat normal food after completing the flush, but since you are still in pain, you should avoid oily foods. :idea:

    joy said,

    Its alright that i will drink apple juice continue

    • 521

      Hi there, dear Joy :D

      Yes, you can continue to drink the apple juice until your next flush – but cut down to just 2 cups a day because apple juice has a lot of sugar in it.

      After the flush, you should be able to eat normally without any pains. Well, at least that is what I experienced.

      During the 5 days of apple juice drinking, there is no change to the diet, we continue to eat our normal meals. On the 6th day, eat lightly. :idea:

      Good Luck!

    joy said,

    I mean when i do the next cleanse in the six days no dinner right?its allow me to eat biscuit.while i drink epson and olive with lemon?

    • 525

      Hi there, dear Joy :D

      During the 6 days of this flush – only on Day 6 is dinner not allowed. For the first 5 days, we eat like normal and we can have dinner.

      I am not sure how eating the biscuit will affect the epsom salts and olive olive/lemon juice effect, but if you are worried about being hungry, you can go ahead and eat the biscuit and see what happens. :idea:

      Good Luck!

    Good news for those who can’t find Epsom Salts to buy :idea: ===>

    I have found that the online store in USA that I buy my health supplement from sells Epsom Salts in pure 100 % natural form.

    You can use my Gift Code MLL655 for a US$10 discount off your purchases for first time buyers . :wink:

    Here is the link to where you can buy Epsom Salts :idea: ===>

    I just wonder if I cant get apple juice in packs. How many apples should I eat per day?

    • 528

      Hi there, dear John :D

      In case you can’t get bottled or packaged apple juice, you can eat a large apple 4 times a day, i.e. 4 apples daily. :idea:

    but for a glass of apple juice( 250ml) we need atleast 3-4 apples..one big apple will give the same result???

    • 530

      Hi there, dear Sanjeev :D

      Yes, I was told to eat one apple in place of 1 cup of apple juice. :idea:

      I had done a combination of both before, but I prefer drinking just the bottled, no sugar added juice. :wink:

      With best wishes,

        sanjeev said,


        what about people having diabetes?? they cant drink that much amount of apple juice…..or they can?? any experience and comment ???

      • 532

        Hi there, dear sanjeev :D

        Personally, I have had no feedback from diabetics who tried this out – but I think some other websites may have some information on that. :idea:

        The amount of sugar in even “No Sugar Added” apple juice is really high and we will be drinking about 5 1/2 litres of that for 6 days.

        Today is Day 6 of my 8th Gallbladder Flush.

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

      • 533

        P.S. Sanjeev, I found some information at the website below on how diabetics can even do this flush nowadays :idea: -


        It seems that the apple juice can be replaced by taking Malic Acid dissolved in water :idea: .

  217. 537

    Hi there, dear friends :D

    It is just past 7am now. Yesterday was Day 6 of my 8th gallbladder flush in 4 years.

    For breakfast and lunch yesterday, I had only fruits, bread and a little lentil vegetable curry (less than 1/2 cup) – considerably lesser amount of food (protein and oil) intake compared to my previous flushes,

    I took 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts at 6pm and 8pm (mixed with half cup water and 1/2 cup cranberry juice to cover the horrible taste), and chased down 1 cup of Olive Oil/Lemon Juice with some pineapple juice at 10pm. Yuck! Writing about that olive oil drink is making me sick in the stomach now! :roll:

    I stopped drinking and eating anything right after 2pm on Day 6. I didn’t even have any water. In previous flushes, I continued to drink water until 6pm. Yesterday, my olive oil drink stayed down and I didn’t have any acid reflux compared to previous flushes.

    Had 2 visits to the bathroom before midnight but no green stones were seen as the bowels were being cleansed.

    Upon waking up at 6am, I immediately drank another cup of 1 tablespoon Epsom Salt with water and cranberry juice…oh, that awful taste…I shall skip the 8am dosage afterwards because I am SOOOOO sick of that taste.

    Had another visit to the bathroom around 6.30am and this time I saw around 20 tiny green stones – just 1 to 2 mm in sizes.

    After reading Andreas Moritz’ information on the liver flush, he encouraged us to take more Epsom Salts on Day 7 (6am and 8am) so that we will have more diarrhoea and pass out as much gallstones as possible that have been purged already from the gallbladder and are in our intestines. He said the gallstones have toxins, parasites and bacteria in them and it is best to pass them out asap before the toxins are absorbed back into the body through the intestines.

    Another thing he encouraged us to do is colonics or colon water therapy to flush out the rest of the stones that are in the intestines. Me….I think I will just eat more bananas and drink a lot of water today..

    That’s all to report for now….

    With best wishes,

    choesf :D

      P.S. Flushed out a second time about 15 green stones – half of them are larger, about 0.5 cm.

      If you can’t see any stones, just gently pour into the toilet (from the sides of the toilet, not directly into the water) some water with a pail or from a pipe. The stones will float up. :idea:

      For energy and recuperating, I just drank a cup of Jiaogulan Tea and I took a capsule of probiotics (friendly bacteria).

      It is now 8.15 am, and I am definitely not going for the Day 7 8am dose of Epsom Salts. For those of you doing this flush for the first time, it is best that you take all the 4 doses of Epsom Salts for maximum flushing of gallstones :wink:

      • 539

        P.S. Whoo…hooo, am I glad my 8th gallbladder flush is over now! I had two more purging since I last posted – the earliest one with another 10 stones – mainly tiny like 1 to 2 mm, and one about 4 mm. The last purge did not yield any stones.

        I will continue to do my maintenance gallbladder flush around 6 months from now….until there are no more gallstones being flushed out, and thereafter, I will just need to do a flush once a year.

        Note :idea: – To prevent gallstones from forming in future, we need keep our cholesterol low and I will be doing the Master atan Dhealing Basic Blood For Cholesterol regularly as well as drink Jiaogulan Tea daily.

        Good Luck to all those who are doing this flush!

        With best wishes,

    my nephew is 7 year old and he is suffering from 7 mm g b stone can he practise this remedy

    • 541

      Hi there, dear shashi :D

      I am sorry to hear that your nephew already has a gallstone at such a young age :sad: – this natural flush may not be advisable for such young children as it involves skipping dinner, purging and Epsom Salts. His parents will have to decide on their own to see if they want him to take the risks of trying this flush out. :idea:

    I have a 1.5 cm and .8 cm gallstones that i learned from the ultrasound they did yesterday. I am very nervous to have a surgery. I will try this purging process tonight and i hope it will help me pass out the stone so that I don’t need to have surgery. I have been crying and I found this website. Thank you, it gives me hope. I hope and pray that it will help me with my problem.

      Hi there, dear Genevieve :D

      I’m sorry to hear that you have gallstones, too and hope that this natural gallbladder flush will work for you. Good Luck!

    Hello I m 38 years old I have a galblader stone 9 mm moreover I have some gastric problems.can I flush my galblader by apple therapy.some people told me when u wil take Epsom salt and olive oil n lemon juice in a day it cause to burst the galblader

    • 545

      Hi there, dear Ashwani :D

      I’m sorry to hear that you have a gallstone, too :sad: . Yes, you can try this flush a few times to remove your stone. :idea:

      I have not heard before about this therapy causing a the gallbladder to burst…I can only guess that if one’s gallbladder is full and tightly packed with stones, then that may happen. But you only have a small stone, it should be alright. You should ask those people that told you about the gallbladder bursting to explain why that would happen to understand more about the whole process. :wink:

      Good Luck!
