Thanks for posting this Wombat, I also agree with Mr Hobbs, in that releasing stagnant bile is a good thing for the body, emotionally and physically.
Even better is to eat a diet with a good amount of good fats and oils, then there wont be any problem with stagnant bile, to begin with.
There are lots of ways to dissolve gallstones, in situ, without risking lodging one in the bile ducts, and IMO it is better to focus on preventing gallstones in the first place, then trying to force the body to expel existing stones, with potentially, very serious consequences.

when you get kefir grains you dont need to add ANYTHING to the kefir grains. Live kefir grains have so much probiotic and good bacteria that it works its magic on its own. No need for yogurt maker, no need for stevia and etc. thats just for the taste.
just look into live kefir grains shouldnt be no more than $5, raw milk ($15-20 a gallon depends in your area, large glass jar (any store) and let it sit for 3days. Thats it!!
even if you cant get raw milk which im sure you can, organic milk will do . you see live kefir grains will kill all what the organic milk has so your good to go:)
