I tend to agree with you somewhat on the nature of the soluble stones.
When I did the cleanse both for myself and with clients, what I found was both kinds were there.
In several cases where the people were scheduled for gallbladder surgery and we did the cleanse beforehand, there was no sign of the stones upon ultrasound scan.
One woman, who was 86 at the time (11 years ago), collected the stones (that were rock hard) and put them in a jar, and took them to her physician. She announced that "this doctor from America (I was visiting another country when this happened...) took my stones out". The doctor first thought that she was nuts, but when she showed him the jar, he went white in the face. Then he ordered another ultrasound and found the Gallstones that were there the week before were gone. This woman is still alive and kicking happily and in good health!
I have noticed, for example, that many, many people who undergo gallbaldder removal surgically, become depressed shortly thereafter.
I also have thoughts and "speculations" regarding the energy/spiritual factors behind gallbladder problems, but that's another story..
I have used another flush, which is very simple, very safe, yet very
dramatic, and even old people with various ailments can do it safely.
However, I always like to observe, assist and take care that nothing
strange goes on (My control issues? maybe, or just caution...).
This one involves 5 days of preparation with eliminating all fat from the diet, and it includes Epsom Salts , olive oil and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. I usually do a kidney cleanse prior to the liver/gallbladder flush, which dramatically improves the body's ability to handle the flush.--
