My ideas and opinions on how to make this work for me!
Keep in mind I may be wrong, I am no expert.
Problems and possible solutions to them, feel free to add your solutions. Your
ideas could be better than mine and probably are. I think we all have the same
concerns, so we should share our solutions and/or ideas.
I also think people should also be more descriptive when naming their thread.
Gallbladder cleanse as a topic does not tell much.
The Epsom Salt thing is yucky mom!:
I don't plan to do this if at all possible. If something tastes that yucky, I don't
think God intends for use to put it into our mouth. Also, I was told by an herbalist, Epsom Salt is hard on the Kidneys Personally, I have never tried drinking the stuff,
but I will take everyone's word for it on how horrible that it tastes.
Recipes that include apple juice don't seem to include the Epsom salt.
In my view, the reason for the Epsom Salt is to open up the bile ducts so that large
stones can get out.
My solution to this: use Liver Cleansing herbs to shrink stones so that the will be
easier to pass. I mentioned these on another thread - dated 13:46 Apr 16. Title
of thread: Herbs to help the cleanse to be more successful...
Olive oil tastes yucky and makes me gag:
1. Put olive oil in blender with the lemon juice, blend then drink real quick
before they separate again. This improves the taste
2. Try a different kind of oil next time. But always use cold pressed organic oil.
No sense in toxifing yourself again after going to all the trouble to do a cleanse.
I plan to try either sesame oil (That seems to be a light tasting oil), or maybe
beef fat. (the stuff that floats on the top on beef broth). Try anything
that does not make you gag and let us know if it worked.
3. If anyone knows of a light organic cold pressed olive oil and where to purchase this,
let us all know. I think extra virgin oil is so very thick and strong tasting.
Lemon juice burns is hard on my stomach and is so sour:
1. Try Grapefruit juice
2. Lemon juice is supposed to work better so try a combination of the citrus's
together. (lemon and grapefruit, orange, lime and/or possibly pineapple)
Why wouldn't pineapple work, it is acidic? Just ideas here folks. I have never
I can't use apple juice because I have candida:
1. skip it then
2. use malic acid pills
3. read gallbladder cleanse and candida
Colonics/ enema/ colon flush - I don't wanna! :
The purpose for these are to clean out the intestines so the Gallstones can get out.
I don't think this is necessary or natural. Personal opinion here.
I plan to clean out my colon by eating stuff that I know will clean me out.
God put lots of stuff on this earth that are great for that.
applesauce/ apple juice
I plan to use Broccoli, since I am allergic to anything else that I can think of.
Bile stung my butt on my first flush and gave my hemorrhoids.
Possible solution: Unpetroleum jelly on the area to protect it.
What to eat before flush and why:
Avoid Fat- because when you don't eat fat the bile does not move thus creating
pressure. When you drink the oil the bile should rush out due to extra pressure.
You don't want the intestines to be full of food when Gallstones are
trying to get out.
I would also avoid grains. They are very filling and them might contain oils??
I would stick to fruit and veggies and veggie soup/broth.
Sleep on this side or that:
I really don't think it matters. You are not trying to get the oil into your gallbladder
but to get the bile out of you gallbladder. You can swallow standing on your head so I
don't think the gallbladder needs the help of gravity. And besides, who wakes up in the
same position they fell asleep in.
Afraid of messing up! "
Just a thought:
I read someplace, can't remember where, that the first gallbladder flushes
where probably just purely accidental.
The book said that probably after a long winter when food was scarce, people ate whatever
they could find (probably fruit or veggies), then after a week or more of minimal eating and
no animal food, someone caught a wild boar and since they were very hungry, they ate quite
a bit of this fatty pork and wa la! Bile rushed out pushing out stones along with it, which is why
cleanses work better in the spring. This is nature's time table. Probably their stones did not get to
the sizes ours do, due to a better diet and yearly forced spring fasts/flushes.
