HI----After having gallbladder problems for over 3 YEARS, I finally found something that has worked for me! I have been doing this for one month now and am down from ALL-DAY ATTACKS that continued for a week, to 1-2 episodes of five-minute back pain! The "distended feeling under my right rib" is gone! It is worth a try, easier than these flushes------with no risk of stones getting stuck in ducts, vomiting excessively, possible visits to ER, drinking foul-tasting stuff, etc. Here is what I did to get rid of my pain!
EVERY NIGHT, castor oil packs using castor oil with a heating pad, usually 2-3 hours at a time...(perfectly safe to use, old remedy, I have been doing this now for a month)
Daily, drink APPLE JUICE AND GRAPE JUICE as well as loads of water. NO fried or fatty foods. No chocolate!
Taurine (an amino acid) 2000 mg daily----mice were made to get Gallstones by chemical induction and then given taurine daily and all the mice's gallstones disappeared! (Taurine is known as the "savior of the gallbladder!")
Milk thistle--(cleanses and repairs LIVER) ---3 capsules per day
N-acetyl cysteine (amino acid---1200 mg daily
Beet root (500 mg-----6 capsules per day)
Spirulina---six 500 mg capsules per day--(green SUPERFOOD--this will REALLY clean you out!)
Calcium/Magnesium Citrate w/Vit D----3 caps daily (relaxes muscle spasms in the back)
Chamomile capsules----4 per day---an antispasmodic---relaxes back spasms
Hydrangea Root Tincture (liquid)---2 dropperfuls per day (yucky taste!)
Vitamin C----2000 mg daily and Vitamin E-----400 IU daily
At these doses, all 10 of these supplements are safe----the most expensive one is the N-acetly cysteine, (about $15)
All these cost me about $40 month----way less than the $10-15,000 for GB surgery....give it a try if you don't want to try flushes! I am certainly glad I did! Good luck to all!
Evidence and experience indicates that Gallstones are often (but not always) an indication of a problem elsewhere, mostly in the liver.
Flushing may clean the whole biliary system and restore its natural function and the balance of chemical production in the body. Another goal of flushing is to establish the cycle of cholesterol from blood to discharge as this appears to help the metabolism and benefits health.
Fat in some form in the diet exercises the gallbladder maintaining a strong reflex and full evacuation of the stored bile in the gall bladder.
Were you ever sick and did you ever get a stone stuck?
You might be feeling fine but can you let us know after some time what the ultrasound says.
From all I have read, and my own experience, it seems to be impossible to get rid of calcified stones any other way.
In my case even the big stone (1") is still there but because of flushing the inflammation is gone, the thickened wall went back to normal, from 42mm to 3mm.
The stone had blocked the gallbladder neck, what created all the problems, because of flushing it became free floating and the bile flow started up again and the gallbladder healed itself.
I am now stone (soft stones) and symptoms free, can eat anything, but the stone still shows on the ultrasound.
After 3 years I have used every supplement mentioned for breaking up the stones, no change.
The good thing about flushing besides getting rid off stones, my allergies are gone and I was able to get off my anti-depressant medicine.
Hi, thanks for the reply. In my research, even calcified Gallstones CAN be gotten rid of with CONTINUED LONG-TERM intake of taurine and Vitamin C, of course assuming you have the time to do that and are not in repeated acute episodes that could be life-threatening. Do not be foolish with risks to your health, of course! Apparently gallstones cannot co-existent with constant intake of taurine. Malic acid also can dissolve them. Interesting, did you know that taurine is required to produce bile? Taking taurine improves bile flow and keeps it thin enough to PREVENT stones. Taurine also INCREASES THE PRODUCTION OF CHENODEOXYCHOLIC ACID by 70% percent----chenodeoxycholic acid is a DRUG PRESCRIBED BY DOCTORS FOR GALLSTONES! Why would I take a dangerous drug when taurine can boost the production NATURALLY of the same thing in my body? Taurine has also been with urodeoxycholic acid, the drug that is prescribed for DISSOLVING CHOLESTEROL GALLBLADDER STONES! Vit C BREAKS DOWN cholesterol to bile and also RAISES the NATURAL PRODUCTION of urodeoxycholic acid. Vit C every 1-2 hrs during an acute attack, 1000-2000mg at a time until you reach your tolerance (which is diarrhea), with NAC, can help. NAC can speed BREAKUP of gallstones, proven in lab studies.
As far as my personal ultrasound, I have had 3, as well as one mormal HIDA scan. The gallbladder wall was normal size, no sludge, no stones seen, no dilated ducts, pancreas, liver, spleen and kidneys imaged as normal....three times. Since I have all the symptoms of gallbladder disease, I assusme I either have "sand" or stones too small to be seen or truly have acalculous situation. My last high-definition ulrasound done at a major medical center was two weeks ago.
I will try my supplement protocol and maybe at some point might try a mini daily Liver Flush to see what happens. May the LORD heal all who ask. Know this is a liver forum, so will not post here again!
Oh no, do post here again. Where else are you suppose to post this info. We are to be open to all the help and experience that people have to give. I don't think Tellman meant to discourage you from posting your info. just that most people come here to know how to succussfully flush. Your info. is valid and informative. Thank you for sharing it.
Please keep the group informed about how you get on. You have remind us all that they are different ways to tackle a health problem and that we mustn't be too precious about our own beliefs. Keep in mind that this is liver flushing support forum that also happens to one of the more lively groups on curezone and although we like to be informed and educated it is not at the expense of flushing.
The information below in to help clarrify a few issue raised within these threads.
There are several different types of "gallstone conditions" some of which are cause by a single event such as bacteria in the biliary tree and other by chemical imbalances, liver conditions and other factors.
Black and brown pigment stones which are usually radio-opaque (show up on an x-ray) are in the minority and may even be attached to the viscous inner layer of the gall bladder. These can be extremely difficult to remove by flushing and may be helped by the use of supplements to dissolve them and dilute the thick mucus in which they are suspended. Biliary sludge being dense but not as dense as pigment stones will show up clearly on a ultrasound. Common "green Cholesterol stones" which have a very similar density to bile often do show up in an ultrasound examination.
Even so some stones will not even dissolve but you won't know until you try which can take quite a long time even years. Half the people that have pigment Gallstones also have an underlying liver condition and/or a reduced gallbladder function.
If you eat a "normal meal", for example, having a mix of protein (15%), carbohydrate (60%) and fat (25%) a fully functioning gallbladder will usually empty by about 75%. Occasionally it may be beneficial to eat more "good" fat to encourage a greater emptying.
you mentioned taking many different stone breakers, and since I don't want to waste my money, I would really appreciate it if you would list them. There's no doubt there are many remedies out there that are expensive and just don't work!
Thanks in advance,
