Hi Sweet pea! Yes believe it or not alcohol relieves the sypmtoms of gallstone it allows bile to flow! I myself did not reailize I had gallstone until I quit drinking!
As far as the ulcer goes or heartburn mine went away after I gave up drinking! But i will help you look into a natural protocal for ulcers which may be something other the ulcers but an over acid stomach ! let me know what your diet is like now and maybe I can help you that way! I would imagine plenty of good clean water would help to relive the dehydation you suffer from after years fo drinking! great to hear of your success but staying dry is always a challenge the first year or so!
