Hi there ,
I just wanted to post this message as an encouragement for other (beginning) flushers with large stones in their gallbladders:
In November 2006 I was diagnosed with Gallstones
and was advised to have my gallbladder removed.
I started with the Liver Flush
instead of the operation.
I got into big trouble. . . After the fourth flush I got pancreatitis ( I probably had it already for some time) and ended up in hospital having an ERCP.
It appeared that the opening in my duct was to small to let all the debris pass.
So.... it had nothing to do with the flush itself ,but with an inherited condition, ssome very wrong preparations before the flush and some very wrong procedures after the flush.
I failed to soften my stones before doing the flush and that made things worse.
My point is to tell every beginning flusher to take the instructions for a good preparation of a flush very seriously:
2. Soften and dissolve stones before the first flush
3. After a flush make sure to give your ducts time to close fully before taking fatty foods.
( I had taken Valerian to keep my ducts open, but had not enough bile left to push the debris out, that is most likely why my already small openings got clogged up)
During the first few flushes I got rid of some very large tan colored stones.
The doctor classified these as "stool" stones.
However: after the ERCP procedure which removed debris and stones from my ducts I passed exactly the same kind of stones.
So.... I guess this doctor was wrong...
These tan colored stones were gall stones.
I was again advised to have my gall bladder removed because the ultrasound still showed an 1 inch
stone. The doctor really pushed me to do the op, but I refused.
I started to take some Chinese Herb tinctures. The idea came from
Actually Julia Chang from Sensible Health very kindly shared the recipe somewhere on this forum.
I could not buy it from sensible health because I live far from Canada and the postage costs me a fortune.
Therefore I made the tinctures myself:
Use about 150gr of herbs to about 1 liter of alcohol (35-50%), put it in a glass jar with a lid
( make sure the herbs are covered with the alcohol), put it in a dark, cool place and shake every couple of days.
Start at new moon and let it soak for a month. After 3 weeks you can already start to take it.
I followed Julia's instructions to the letter and: My last ultrasound showed that this particular stone is gone. My gallbladder appears to be completely clean.
THESE TINCTURES REALLY WORK.
There might be some stones the ultrasound can't detect. I will have to continue to be careful.
But I have gone from a super stuffed gallbladder to a (hopefully) rather clean one.
I am still a little scared to do the full flush because my pancreas is not totally recovered yet.
But I am almost there.
Now I do the "gentle flush".
At the moment this does the trick for me. I got rid of a lot of little ( big pea size) green stones.
Again: the people who say that these green stones are congealed olive oil don't know what they are talking about. The quantity of olive oil in this flush can't produce the amount of green "stones" I passed.
The gentle flush uses: 2 egg yolks, 1 tablespoon ( I use 2 table spoons) of olive oil and the juice of tree limes instead of the olive oil and lemon- grapefruit juice.
For the rest I follow the exact protocol that is used during the full liver flush.
I am very happy about my progress and I hope I have given anyone out there some useful tips and also warnings. Also I hope that I have eleviated doubts around the origine of liver/gall stones.
Good luck to all of you and good health! Fellowflusher
