Hi all, I had a small gallstone from couple of years and a month ago it was painful. One of friend share a tip to remove it naturally. Because it was simple I tried it and after a week my pain was severe for two days and than I passed it in urine. I am going for scan next week. Tip is:

One table spoon olive oil and one table spoon fresh lemon juice. Mix and drink every night before sleep.

The gall bladder is not connected to the urinary system, so it is impossible to pass a gall stone in urine.

WEll heres a lil UPDATE.. ive adjusted my nutrient intake to foods that wont constipate me( i think the blood was from possible hemmoroids) and the pain was being caused by foods that were just not agreeing with me in my aging body. So ive listened to my body and given it what it wants lol. Ive also done a few of those cleansing sessions with olive oil/beet juice and lemon juice ..all i well for now . thx for the online support through this lil scare i was having !! ;)

I am mid 40's and usually eat very healthy but occassionally i endulge ..just quit smoking since dec 19, i found this site from google of course as i have some concern. hmmm read some of these stories wow!! I just may be sicker than i think!! Firstly i looked up gall bladder attack symptoms..of course ive had em all . so then i looked up natural remedy to pass gall stones if thats what i have . The olive oil /lemon juice and beet juice ...ever since drinking one dose of that ive been bleeding with every stool!! but no more extreme pains at least .. has anyone else experienced this ?? Any idea what could be causing the bleeding?? wondering if and how many more doses of that stuff i should have or if its time to cave in and go to a doc . (lol ...i am very stubborn and i guess a lil afraid to go yet so i'd rather just try something at home if i can ....)

There are natural ways to dissolve gallstones. Fresh apple juice is one way. I am taking Hydrangea with Food enzymes from Nature's Sunshine or you can take Hydrangea with Nature's Sunshine Gallbladder formula. Gold coin grass is also supposed to help dissolve the stones and after a few months of these you can try a gallbladder flush or a coffee enema. Start researching natural remedies. You need your gallbladder regardless of what medical professionals say...If you didn't need it, you wouldn't have it. So try to eat healthy and take natural remedies to save your gallbladder.

I'm 46 year old mom of three, I'm overweight and have struggled with the issue, gaining and losing the same 50 lbs. Ive always enjoyed a varied diet with lots of fresh veggies and fruit, fiber and lean meat, yet, recently, after cutting back on calories, I began to have (self diagnosed) gall bladder attacks. I've lost 17 pounds, but the attacks have increased in frequency and strength. After some research, I'm trying a gallbladder flush to try and pass them and get some relief. I have catastrophic insurance and going to a doctor and consequently having expensive testing and surgery would certainly mean losing my 10k life's savings. I'm praying this flush works, and I will NEVER eat another piece of bacon, hamburger, or a bite of ice cream as long as I live! I'm currently taking beet juice, apple juice, and a liver detox supplement with my multivitamin. The pain is horrific and I've woken every night writhing in agony, and I'm eating nothing but vegetables, fruit, oatmeal, and water! I want to keep my gallbladder if I can!

While ou have the stones, you may have attack eevry night .Try to eat food that will not trigger the liver or gall bladder . I give the following food to my daughter: Breakfast: 1 cup of green tea, natural honey, small piece of brown bread, 1 ripe banana. Sometimes, I give her 1 piece of grilled chicken breast fillet or 2 eggwhites stirfired in olive oil.Lunch/ Supper : grilled chicken breast fillet / or fish fillet , zucchini, fresh parsley, tomato without the skin and seeds,2 tbsp cooked brown rice, carrots thinly sliced.
Sometimes, I simply boil chicken fillet with potato and carrot cubes, some broccoli, green beans,diced parsley and u may add 1 spoon of brown rice , add very little salt and 3 pcs of pepper corns.Do not eat onions as they trigger pain. I alternate fish and chicken for each meal. You may grill also lean beef. Fruits like bananas, peaches, pear are good.Do not eat sour fruits which may upset stomach.She also drinks a lot of water. Not a very tasty meal but she lost 7 kgs already in 1 month period.My daughter is free of pain at least for 1 week and when pain starts, I take her to clinic where they give her hysocine and/ or tramadol injec. For vomiting, she is also given Ranitidine and Metachlobromide injec.

Hello. Am so sorry to hear about your gallstones pain. My daughter was diagnosed of gallstones also but before she was diagnosed,never had attack like the one you suffer every night.She occassionally had gastric pain and sometimes vomit after fatty meal, so we thought that she was hyperacidic.Only after her blood test doc suspected of liver disease as her bilirubin was high and her AST and ALT were 10 times higher than normal. Sonography showed that she has small but plenty gallstones. An MRCP showed a more detailed image, unfortunately 2 smal stones obstructed her common bile duct. Actually, a day after MRCP , she had an attack which was so heart breaking to witness. Her gastroenterologist did EUS on her, fortunately, he saw nothing in the CBD. A miracle indeed ! Seems that the severe pain was due to the stones passing the CBD towards her intestines.After this, she was relieved of pain and the invasive MRCP procedure to be done was cancelled. Now, she is waiting for 1 week more to be admitted to hosp. and have her gall bladder removed.

My point is, do not try to ignore the pain you are having. Make sure you have MRCP to see the status of the gall bladder, pancreas and liver.Obstruction of stones in the CBD is very painful and could be a critical condition.Flushing are not effective if the stones are already big or many.There is also this danger that the more you wait, chances are the stones may fall into the CBD which could be very ,very painful.If your stones are safe in the gallbladder, schedule for surgery ASAP.Eating healthy diet prevents more stones to form, but you have to remove the stones already present and that is only thru removal of the gallbladder. Medicines that reduce the size of the stones may take 2-3 years to finally dissolve them but you gall bladder may produce stones again after 3-4 years .
