In July of 2003 I had a severe pain in my upper right side, couldn’t sleep and felt nauseous. I drove myself to the hospital. I thought I was going to die. It was about 6AM by the time I got to the hospital and the pain had been going on for about 4 hours. They gave me some kind of drugs via IV. The diagnosis was Gallstones and fatty liver. Once I got good enough to drive home, they wanted to schedule me for surgery. They told me I could wait, but that the symptoms would probably return in short order. I was 52 years old at the time.
By the way, I am about 60 pounds overweight. Most of the weight was gained in one year starting with taking hormone replacement therapy almost exactly one year prior to the attack.
When I got home I started doing searches on the web to try and understand my condition and to find out if there was a natural cure. That’s when I found the Cure Zone and have been a voyeur ever since. If it wasn’t for some of the good advise that I got on cure zone, I probably would be dead by now. Most medical doctors don’t seem to know anything at all about the liver and gallbladder.
I ordered just about every liver tonic and stonebreaker available. Julia Chang’s Gold Coin Grass and Chinese Bitters are excellent. I also took a product called “Stone Free” and a few other herbal formulas. I am doing parasite cleans every 6 months and did a Kidney cleans. I take MH’s (Barefoot herbalist) lower bowel balance and several other products that he makes – they are all excellent and liver cleansing.
After 8 flushes I went to a doctor and asked for an ultrasound to see if I had made any progress. He, of course, told me that there was no way that you could get rid of Gallstones with olive oil. The ultra sound showed that I still had “a ball” of Gallstones at the very back of my gallbladder. You could actually see bumps on the outside of the gallbladder where the ball of stones was located. The rest of the gallbladder looked empty, so I was encouraged. The Doctor wanted to have my gallbladder removed as soon as possible. My cholesterol levels were also high, 249, and they wanted to put me on Crestor. (No way!)
After 23 Liver Flushes I became stone free; this was in August of 2004. (So it took me a little over a year of flushing almost every other week.) I did five flushes after that with no stones. It has been a few months now since I did a flush. I intend to do another flush and plan on getting another ultrasound and blood tests in December 05.
Some of the favorable results that I have had by flushing and diet changes:
No gallbladder attacks
No indigestion from fatty food intake
Major reduction in knee and joint pain
No more hives (I would frequently get hives and skin itching)
No more seasonal allergies
More restful sleep
I still need to get an ultrasound and blood tests to verify the positive results. When I get these I will post my results.
Julia Chang, MH (Barefoot Herbalist), Andreas, and Sandra Cabot all helped me greatly, along with the Cure zone mentors, especially Hanna. Thank you all.
One of the things that I added to my Houlda Clark flushing routine was taking a Valium 10 mg along with the olive oil. Once I started doing that, I got “the Mother Lode” that I had been anticipating. I did not take Valium until my 17th flush. I had a serious back strain at the time; I had trouble putting my shoes on. After two therapeutic messages, I was still in pain. I had a Valium in the medicine cabinet, so I took it. Since I was bed-ridden anyway, I decided that I would do my scheduled flush. Wow!! I must have got a pound of stones and cholesterol goo. Now I take a Valium every time I flush. I know that this is bad and definitely a naturopathic no-no, but it works.
There is no doubt in my mind that flushing is one of the best things a person can do for their health. Every flush result is a little different and the stones vary so much. It seems obvious to me that the gallbladder, liver and ducts are all cleaning themselves out. If the stones were just olive oil congealed, the stones would look the same every time.
My last three fruitful flushes included a hardened “log” of cholesterol that was about ¾ inch wide by 1 1/2 inch long with may “chips” of cholesterol the size of green pepper seeds. It was like I had whole segments of my liver totally frozen by backlogged cholesterol.
Now I am working on losing weight and eating liver healthy foods. I don’t even want to eat another French fry again. I don’t stop at the fast food places any more.
Happy flushing to you all!! Don’t give up—stone free is an achievable goal.
