>>>>I said: stones are formed from bile (cholesterol from bile is most likely a main ingredient, and possibly, what makes liquid cholesterol acids to precipitate into a solid cholesterol ... could be hydrochloric acid from stomach ... or possibly something else ... I never did any major analysis of stones).<<<<
HCl is in the stomach and is extremely acidic. Bile is alkaline. I dont think HCl comes in contact with bile to precipitate the stones.
When we injest huge quantities of oil ( as done in LF), the Bile is released from GB, and this bile combines with the oil part to form stones in the intestines.
So basically, you are also admitting that the stones were formed in the intestines and did not pre-exist in the Liver/GB. You just dont want to call them "soap stones". I prefer to call them soap stones, because they are actually congealed oil+ bile+other digestive enzymes.
I dont care where exactly these stones came from, but how effective are these flushes. Some ppl are just too brain-washed to beleive otherwise, but LFes are ineffective in long run. Hanna a veteran liver flusher has not been able to expel her gallstone. LFes are not a cure-all, or I better say, they are hardly a cure.
