Gallbladder cleanse for gallstones


Most people are likely to have hundreds of gall stones. They are soft and don't show up on an x-ray unless they calcify. However, they cause problems such as gall bladder attack by blocking the bile ducts even when they are not calcified. The pain of a gall bladder attack can be excruciating. The pain comes and goes in bouts. Start to think of pain as your friend. Pain is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. Once you figure out what is wrong and what to do about it, the pain will go away.

What does the gall bladder do?

The gall bladder stores bile, and releases it in optimum quantities when it is needed. Without your gall bladder, the liver will STILL produce bile, but the bile will leak inside you because it will not have a proper place to go.

What is bile?

The spleen breaks down worn-out red blood cells into bile salts and other substances. Bile salts are normal in the body when in normal amounts. The liver removes excess bile salts and wastes and sends them to the gall bladder for storage. The liver is the body's principal chemical plant. If a man built a plant to perform all the chemical functions one mans' liver could perform, the plant would cover 500 acres. While the products are in the gall bladder, water is reabsorbed and so the waste products get more and more concentrated and form bile.

Bile is needed for 3 things:

  1. It neutralizes the acid from the stomach (because bile is very alkaline) 
  2. It breaks down fats so that they can be digested 
  3. It is a natural laxative for the colon

Bile is essential in the digestion of fats. When you eat a meal with fats, the gall bladder releases a LARGE amount of bile to digest the fats. One big problem when a person has gall bladder surgery is that the body has nowhere to store bile until it is needed. Therefore, it just drips continually. And when a large amount is needed to digest a meal with a lot of fat, there is not anywhere enough bile added to digest it properly.

What are gall stones?

Stones can form anywhere in the body where there is a liquid containing mineral salts that can be crystallized and where the fluid is held for a while in a hollow organ, such as the gall bladder. The stones may be large or small, and sometimes grow together causing extra large stones. Small stones are often excreted along with the bile and eliminated with no problem. Larger ones, however, can become lodged in the ducts, causing gall stone colic, one of the most painful illnesses known. At other times, gall stones may be silent. In autopsies, examiners often find gall bladders full of gall stones although the deceased had no complaints about them.

A gall stone is not a true stone. They are rather rubbery and soft. Most gall stones float. They are mostly green. The size varies from rice grains to golf balls. Even large gall stones will slip out easily with this gall stone cleanse.

What symptoms might be produced if there are gall stones?

Gall stones can cause cholecystitis which is inflammation of the gall bladder and causes symptoms such as gall bladder pain, fever and inflammation, as well as gall bladder blockages. Gall stones can also cause symptoms which seem unrelated to gall stones, such as gas, bloating and flatulence or cramping in the stomach and abdomen. If a gall stone remains lodged in the bile for a long time, there will be a buildup of bile behind it. This can result in jaundice, where the skin turns yellow. Gall stones are also more likely to grow where there are high levels of cholesterol.

Organs never "malfunction". They never do something other than what they are supposed to do. But they do STOP working. The answer is not to remove the organ, but to work out what is needed to get the organ to start working again.

When ducts get blocked with gall stones, the bile must still get out into the small intestine. It may take another route and end up in the pancreas and by that route go to the small intestine. The body is making the best of a bad situation. The trouble with this new pathway is that the bile irritates the pancreas. When an organ is irritated, it starts to overfunction. In this case, the pancreas produces insulin. The problem with this is that the insulin is being produced at the wrong time, and this can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) with too much insulin release. Later on, when insulin is needed, there will not be enough, and that causes hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) - in other words, diabetes – therefore a warning to those taking insulin: after you do a gall stone cleanse, check your insulin levels before taking any additional insulin.

Benefits of this cleanse include:

  1. Removing gall stones may help constipation, because it improves the flow of bile which is a natural laxative. 
  2. Removing gall stones may also help to improve a body that is generally "run down". 
  3. Hepatitis is an inflammatory process in the liver. It can be caused by gall stones, because of the back-log of impure products. 
  4. This gall stone cleanse is good also for those who have had their gall bladder removed. 


This method is:

  • Easy (2 days at home compared to 10-14 days in hospital) 
  • Painless (just a little uncomfortable and nauseating) 
  • Virtually for free (comparing to the cost of surgery) 
  • Usually overnight (or within 24 hours) PLUS you get to keep your gall bladder, which is essential to keep your body at peak health.

The only ingredients you need are virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. There are some optional ingredients: Prior to the cleanse, apple, carrot, orange or grapefruit juice for a brief fast. During the cleanse, some V8 juice or pineapple juice. Following the cleanse, some vitamin c, methionine, choline, inositol and lecithin should be added to your daily supplements.


A colonic irrigation to clean out the system for easier elimination of the stones is recommended prior to the cleanse. If you can't have colonic irrigation, consider enemas and laxatives.

Do one or two days of modified fasting using fresh juices. Apple, carrot and beetroot juice are the best. Unsweetened orange and grapefruit are next. Fresh is the first choice, fresh frozen second. Drink as much as you like.

Pick a day to do the cleanse when you have nothing much to do the next day, and even the day after. Friday is best for most people who have the weekend off. Don't make any plans to go out. DO NOT EAT ANY SOLID FOOD after noon on the cleanse day. You may drink water or fresh juices, as much as you like. DO NOT HAVE ANY FLUIDS after 6.30 pm (or 30 minutes before the start of your treatment) on the day of cleanse. Give your stomach time to evacuate all the fluids -then the olive oil won't float up on top of the fluid and your chances of nausea will be greatly reduced.


  • 475ml of virgin olive oil 
  • 240ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • Peppermint oil or capsules 
  • Pineapple or V8 juice 
  • Measuring cup or tablespoon size measuring spoon 


  • Pitcher of water 
  • Paint stirring stick 
  • Small specimen jar with screw-on lid 
  • Index cards 
  • Net to drape under the toilet seat, to catch your stones

Optional (some people don’t want or need to see the stones):

  • Place the net under you toilet seat so it will be ready when you need it. 
  • Lift the seat and place the net across the porcelain stool, then replace the seat so it will hold the net in place. 
  • Place the pitcher of water and the paint stirring stick next to the toilet ready for when you need them. 
  • Also have handy the screw-on lid for storing your gall stones and the index card. 
  • If you should experience extreme nausea or vomiting, try chasing it with a small amount of V8 juice or pineapple juice or the peppermint oil. Use one of these mixtures for a couple of doses and then go back to the olive oil and lemon juice without adding anything.


12 Noon Stop eating all solid food

6.30 pm Stop drinking all fluids

7.00 pm Using a measuring device, pour out 60ml (4 tbsp) of olive oil and drink it. Follow immediately with 1-2 tbsp of lemon juice. Lie down and relax. Repeat this every 15-30 mins (depending on how nauseous you feel). Sit up, swallow it and lie down again. If possible, have someone else bring them to you. Relax, read or watch television. Keep as still as possible. It is best to lie on your right side. Repeat the exact dosage every 15-30 mins until you have swallowed all the olive oil. If there’s any lemon juice left, drink it. If you’re too nauseous to get it all down, drink as much as you possibly can. It is now probably about 9 or 10pm.

Remember, if you have terrible nausea or vomiting sensations, use the peppermint oil in the olive oil, or chase the olive oil with a small amount of V8 or pineapple juice, until you can resume taking the plain olive oil and lemon juice. You have finished the olive oil and lemon juice. Now go to bed and do your best to go to sleep. Lie on your right side. This position speeds up the process of the olive oil entering the gall bladder to act as a lubricant. This, along with the softening action of the lemon juice, will help to free the stones more easily and readily from the gall bladder. Stay in bed and forget everything until the urge to go the toilet comes.

About 2 or 3 am you'll probably wake up with the unmistakable urge to go to the toilet. It may not happen. For some, it doesn't happen until 11am the next day. If your first bowel movement is at 2 or 3 am, you will probably have no stones in it, but you can check to be sure.

Optional: when you have the first bowel movement after the cleanse, you'll use the pitcher of water and the paint stirring stick to wash the fecal material through the net. Pour water gently and use the stick to separate the stones from the fecal material. The fecal material will be runny and wash through the net.

You can use the index card, folded in half, as a makeshift shovel. Place the stones in the jar and screw the lid on. After a few days they will dissolve (because of the lemon juice and oil). If you want to keep them for an indefinite period, store them in your freezer with a label.

You will probably notice green objects (gall stones) and maybe greenish liquid excrement (bile) in the toilet bowel, and between flushes. Those are small gall stones. They will float. Some gall stones will be dissolved by the treatment. In 1% of people, there is failure to PASS gall stones. If you are one of these 1%, don't be disappointed. In some individuals, the powerful action of the lemon juice causes the stones to DISSOLVE before they are passed out of the body. Even if you have only greenish liquid bowel movements, the cleanse has still been effective. Notice any increase in vitality that usually follows the cleanse.


Take supplements to help your body to heal, including vitamins A, B, C, E and minerals especially magnesium and potassium. Also methionine, choline, inositol and lecithin.

Stop eating deep-fried foods and any oils other than those that are cold pressed. Stop eating microwaved food. Drink 2L of good water a day (not distilled - the energy has been changed).


Many people cannot drink two cups of olive oil without throwing up. Therefore, here is an alternative: Eat all the granny smith apples and/or FRESHLY SQUEEZED apple juice (NOT store bought) you can for three days. Also drink water. Eat nothing else. On the final evening get ready for bed. Have 1 cup of olive oil and 1 cup of lemon juice beside your bed. Take as long as you need to drink it. The slower you drink it, the easier it will be to get down and keep it down. Sit up while drinking, but lie down as soon as you have drunk any. Keep as still as possible. Go to bed as soon as you have drunk it all. It is best to lie on your right side. It may help if you mix the lemon juice in the olive oil.

Then proceed as above once all olive oil and lemon juice has been drunk.
