How To Get Rid Of Gallstones Naturally

Try This Alternative To Surgery

Before considering any type of surgery, it is always worth looking for a natural healing approach. Certain gallstones can definitely be passed using a simple cleanse. 

As with everything, do what feels right for you, and of course, consult with a doctor. Surgery is a taxing experience on the body, mind and soul, however in certain circumstances, it might be the better option.

When I discovered I had a golf ball size tumor in my throat, the thought of being cut open and stitched back together literally made me cringe. On the other hand, some people feel very confident about having surgery to remove something that shouldn't be there. It is all about what choice feels best for you. Other people can give you ideas and recommendations but ultimately the choice is up to you and the answer is within you. 

Keep in mind however, that when we cut something out of the body, we still have the root cause of the issue. For example, although I had a stage 1 tumor in my lymphatic system, I knew that removing it surgically would not remove my addiction to junk foods, the vicious cycle of self-abuse and suffering and the lack of self-care.

To dissolve my tumor, I had to heal myself by restoring proper nourishment and nutrition, proper self-love and more self-care. My body had been deprived of these things for a long time so it was no surprise that I ended up with a tumor. I share my story in The Earth Diet book

The incredible power of plant-based and natural food has been ignored for far too long in modern medicine. My book, The Earth Diet, shows us a way back to how our forefathers cured themselves of cancer, diabetes, acne, addictions, obesity, and more. To learn more, tune in to my weekly radio show, The Earth Diet on Wednesdays from 2-3 PM PST.

I believe healing must address Body, Mind (including emotion) and Spirit in order to be successful.

A good friend of mine Lynette Pate (author of Fuel For The Body) had gallstones and she wanted to heal it naturally. She went to her holistic doctor, Jenna Henderson, who assisted her with this gallbladder cleanse. Lynette does not have gallstones anymore.

3-DAY GALLBLADDER GALLSTONE CLEANSE

**Read entirely and follow exactly.

If you gallstone pain is severe, on the night before starting this cleanse, drink ¼ cup apple cider vinegar (for example, the Braggs brand) with ½ cup water and the juice of half a lemon. This drink can feel intense, just like you are having a shot of alcohol. 

Concoction 1:

Olive Oil Solution  (You drink this ONLY Once during the 2 days)

•    1/2 cup of cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil
•    1 large grapefruit 
•    3 lemons 

Concoction 2:

Epsom Salt Solution: (You drink this solution 4 times, twice the first day and twice the second day)
•    4 tablespoons of Epsom salts (plain, not herbal)
•    3 cups of fresh grapefruit juice or fresh apple juice
•    Chamomile supplements OR half cup of chamomile tea.  However, the supplements are preferable.

Preparation:
1    Test to see if you have a bad reaction to Epsom salt by holding about a 1/4 tsp. of it in your mouth for about half a minute, and then swallow it. If there are any problems, then this entire cleanse is a no-go. This test is essential for safety, because an allergic reaction to the massive amounts used later could be fatal.
2    This is a 2-day procedure, so ensure that you have two days that are completely free of obligations before beginning, such as a weekend.
3    Try a chamomile tea to test for ragweed and chamomile allergies.
4    Discontinue all medicines, vitamins, pills, and herbs if possible.

DAY 1

1    Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch, such as oatmeal with fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves, bread with honey, baked potato, or vegetables that are salted only. AVOID butter, milk and cheese. These fat-free meals allow bile to build up and develop increased pressure within the liver.

2    2:00 P.M. -- Discontinue all food. No cheating! Breaking this rule can cause illness and a failure of the flush. Prepare the Epsom salt solution by mixing all the ingredients together. This makes four 3/4 cup servings. Place the jar in the fridge to chill (this is convenient and improves the taste).

3    6:00 P.M. -- Drink the FIRST serving (one 3/4 cup) of the Epsom salt solution. You may add 1/8 tsp. of Vitamin C powder to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterward, or rinse your mouth.                                                                                      

At this point you can take the cold-pressed olive oil and grapefruit out of the fridge and place it on the kitchen counter to warm up.

4    8:00 P.M. -- Repeat by drinking another (2nd serving) 3/4 cup of Epsom salt solution ONLY.   Ready yourself for resting, because timing is important for success.

5    At 9:45 P.M. – Make the olive oil solution by adding all ingredients to a jar. Seal the jar tightly and shake it vigorously. This should make at least 1/2 a cup (3/4 a cup is better) of this mixture, but do not drink it yet. Visit the bathroom, even if it makes you late for your ten o'clock drink. Do not be more than 15 minutes late, or you will expel fewer stones. Get ready for bed.

6    10:00 P.M. -- Drink the OLIVE OIL solution only!  Take four 300 mg. chamomile capsules with the first sips to help you sleep through the night. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. You may use oil and vinegar salad dressing, or straight honey to chase it down between sips. Have these ready in a tablespoon on the kitchen counter. Make certain you drink it standing up. Get it swallowed within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak people). Lie down immediately afterward on your right side. The sooner that you lie down, the more stones you will get out. Do not bother with clean up, because timing is very important. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes after laying. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There should be no pain because the bile ducts are dilated to full size, due to the Epsom salt solution. Go to sleep.

DAY 2

1    Next Morning -- Do NOT begin this step before 6:00 A.M, take your third 3/4 cup dose of the Epsom salt solution. If you have indigestion or nausea at any point, treat it with ginger supplements, and wait until it has passed before drinking the Epsom salt solution. If you absolutely can not hold the ginger in the stomach, then hold the ginger powder in the mouth for direct blood absorption through your cheek tissues. You should return to bed once you have finished your 3/4 cup of Epsom salt solution. .

2    Two hours later -- Take your final dose of the Epsom salt solution and return to bed again.

3    Two hours later -- You may finally eat again. Begin with only fruit juices. Half an hour later, eat fruit. After another thirty minutes, you may eat regular foods, but keep the meal light. By evening, you should feel recovered.

DAY 3

Eat only Raw foods and drinks all day from the list below. Eat so you are full at each meal. 

*Advisory
Expect diarrhea during this procedure. It is normal, so do not be alarmed. 

After you do this cleanse the first time, a 3 day vegan food detox is recommended.  Subscribe on my website to have this cleanse emailed to you. Or you can email info@theearthdiet.org and my amazing customer service team will send it to you!

You can pass the stones within the first 3 days, so the following 3 days on plant-based foods is not totally necessary, HOWEVER, it greatly enhances your health and PREVENTS them from coming back.

REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE EVERY 4 WEEKS until stones are gone.  

Tip: If you want to be sure the stones have passed, you can get a mesh strainer screen and set it in the toilet, so you can see when the stones come out. The stones are green in color, so you may need to get a flash light to see them. You may also be able to feel them pass.  

If you focus on eating and drinking ONLY from the following list you will continue to dissolve the stones:

•    Apple Cider Vinegar 
•    Lemon Water 
•    Green tea
•    Green juice
•    Green Smoothie
•    Grapefruit
•    Coconut
•    Coconut milk
•    Blueberries
•    Spinach
•    Tomatoes
•    Carrots
•    Banana
•    Avocado 
•    Watermelon
•    Broccoli 
•    Cherries
•    Grapes
•    Onion
•    Garlic
•    Coconut oil
•    Cabbage
•    Salad with extra virgin olive oil and lemon as a dressing

*Keep Everything as ORGANIC as you can. Ingesting LESS toxins will aid the detoxification process. 

NO refined white sugar, no caffeine, no bread, no alcohol, no dairy. 

YOU ARE AWESOME.
YOU ARE AMAZING.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
YOU ARE LOVED!!!

Healing the MIND & EMOTIONS

There is an obvious mind-body connection. That’s why we are able to wiggle our toes, the mind sends a message to the body and the body acts. When we have any health issue in our body, the mind is connected and thinking something about it. Often we are not able to see the direct connection between the mind and the body. 

Louise Hay believes that the mental and emotion connection with Gallstones is connected to:
•    Bitterness
•    Hard thoughts
•    Condemning
•    Pride

To help open up and release any thought patterns and emotional blockages, complete the following, whatever first comes to mind:

1. What am I bitter about? (For example, I am bitter about my weight, I don’t like my toes, I don’t like the food I eat, I don’t like this person, I don’t like what that person said or did to me.)
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2. What are some hard thoughts I have? (For example thoughts that are critical, judgmental, negative, and thoughts that feel bad, just let them flow and come out, think of this as a mental detox.)
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Keep in mind that in writing these things out, there is no intention to immediately ‘fix’ them, just to release them and be aware of them. You could imagine as you write them, they are going straight to source energy/God and are being dissolved in bright light energy.

1.    Who are you condemning? (Write their names down and why you are condemning them, for example: Joe because he drinks too much, Mary because her political statements are too aggressive, Andy because he didn’t treat me right.) 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2.    In what ways do you condemn yourself? For example “mistakes” you have made that you find it hard to forgive or reasons you are angry with yourself for something that you did. 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3.    What things in life do you condemn? For example eating animals, certain politicians, cheating, drugs, abuse, people who throw rubbish on the earth without being aware of the damage. Anything that you feel and think is “wrong”. 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

4.    What things are you proud about that you do or have done in your life?
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Do you feel like your level of pride is a healthy balance? For example you may have too much pride to ask for help when you need it. If you know someone with the negative kind of pride, it makes it hard for people to like him. 

Use this affirmation whenever you feel unbalanced or overwhelmed, it will immediately create a healthy balance and a wholeness to your energy and keep you on the track of balanced health:

“I am a balanced woman (or man).”

The affirmation Louise Hay recommends is:

“There is a joyous release of the past. 
Life is sweet and so am I.”

Say this affirmation every morning and night while looking at your eyes in the mirror. Mirror work is extremely beneficial to healing. Then think this thought whenever you remember it throughout the day. 

Spirit

With the spirit approach to healing you will be connecting with your soul, and the Universe that supports your health and well-being. This is an opportunity for you to surrender and let go, you don’t have to do everything on your own. This is a time to pray and talk to the Universe, ask God for help to heal your body and start the conversation. You may realize the parts of yourself that you have cut off from abundance and pure joy. Once these blockages are removed you can restore health and wellness into your body. Remember to ask the Universe for whatever it is you need, and it will be provid, or an answer will come to you that directs you to what you truly need in order to live a joyful, peaceful and abundant life.

Personally, if I discovered gallstones I would take this natural approach before considering surgery. I am confident if you do this cleanse you will pass gallstones during this time. They will break down and dissolve and pass through. 

You always have to do what feels best for you – always. And whatever choice you make, whether to do surgery or not, go forth with confidence, do not doubt yourself after you make a choice. Faith and hope will create more positive healing energy in the body than doubt, fear and negativity will do. 

YOU GOT THIS!
