Two cases of disappearance of Gallstones confirmed by operation are described.
It is suggested that a contributory factor in the disappearance Was the Patient's adherence to a jut-free diet. Recommendations are made concerning the management of patients with multiple small gallstones.
It seems likely that gallstones might occasionally be expelled. Small stones are regularly expelled from the gallbladder. There is some risk that stones over about 5mm in diameter will lodge in the bile duct, but most pass on into the bowel and out of the body unnoticed. Gallbladders may spontaneously empty themselves of small stones, but this is rare .
Also, the large oily meal would stimulate strong gallbladder contraction. This could help expel small gallstones or even, very rarely, a whole crop of small gallstones or sludge."
"The magnesium sulphate ( Epsom Salts ) could have an added effect, as it also stimulates gallbladder contraction and relaxes the muscles controlling the release of bile into the intestines."
That must have been painful for Stephen Barrett to admit that Hulda Clark was right :-)
