Thanks for an excellent read about gallstones. I couldn't find mention of the always very efficient and safe elimination method with apple juice and oil flush with epsom salt on the fifth day. I have seen it work time and time again!
There is a gallstone surgeon at the big Oxford hospital who knows this and has told me he intends to go on operating, although he knows this method is safe and painless, as the apple juice softens the stones. As you have reported in WDDTY, gallstone ops are rising in number. It is a great scandal, among many! Here's the recipe from Dulwich Health Society:
Drink 2 litres (1 quart) fresh, pure apple juice daily. This will soften the stones to such an extent that you could squash them in your fingers.
On the sixth day, skip dinner. At 9 pm take 1 or 2 tablespoons Epsom salt dissolved in 1-2 tablespoons of warm water.
At 10 pm shake together half cup (4 oz) unrefined, coldpressed olive oil and 2 oz lemon juice and drink.
Immediately, go to bed and lie on your right side with your right knee drawn up toward your chin. Remain in this position for 30 minutes before going to sleep, to help the olive oil to drain. Another Epsom salt solution may be needed during the night, so prepare one before going to bed. The next morning you will pass green stones that are soft as putty, some as large as your thumb, without feeling a thing. Christina McFarlane, Newcastle upon Tyne.......
