This is a long overdue post. I had completed my first attempt to remove my gallstone naturally many weeks ago but have yet to post on it. The reason why I didn't do so was because I didn't feel like it. Why? Well, I don't know... maybe because it didn't go as good as I had expected it... Anyways, I had better write the steps down before I forget.
It was a 7-day program that anyone can do at home. The steps taken were:
(1) For the first 6 days, eat 5 medium size organic GREEN apples everyday. If it's the small size, then you will need about 7-8. And yes, it has to be green apples. You could juice them. what I did was juice 2 apples with lettuces for breakfast and then eat 1 apple before lunch, tea and dinner. Preferably organic because since you are going to do detox, why not go all the way. But must warn you that it can be quite costly. It costs around RM5 per apple for me!
It's not a must that have to take the exact amount so don't panic if you ate one less apple on one of the days. :-D The idea is for the apple juice to soften the gallstones. You can eat normally during these 6 days, though try to avoid fried and oily food.
Alternatively, you could buy the detox set that organic shops carries. I believe there's apple juice and olive oil and Epsom salt in it. I have seen it at Justlife in IPC and it costs lesser than buying the apples. But if you ask me, I prefer the apples because I eat them fresh.
(2) On the 7th day, you will need to skip dinner. Breakfast and lunch are ok but for the rest of the day, only drink liquid. I took milk.
At 6pm, dissolve 1 teaspoon of Epsom salt in a glass of warm water and drink it. It doesn't matter how much water you use. I was told by the organic shop owner that I can increase the amount of Epsom salt a little (ie a heaped teaspoonful) if I am usually constipated... This mixture has a slight bitter aftertaste.
At 8pm, repeat the Epsom salt mixture. This is to open up the ducts
At 10pm, mix half cup of olive oil ( I used organic olive + sunflower oil meant for cooking) with half cup of fresh lemon juice (am not sure if you can substitute with lime juice). Drink it and go straight to bed. No physical exercise please. So websites advised that you should lie on your right side. Not sure why though.
You will then feel the urge to purge some green stools. Different people different timing. My SIL felt the need to go to the toilet only half hour after drinking the olive oil + lemon juice. As for me, it was the next morning.
Many websites mentioned that you will feel much better after the purging but I didn't. In fact, I'm still losing weight now (it's a symptom of gallstones). Hmm.... will re-do the detox in another 2-3 months.
Forgot to mention this earlier. Do try to get someone to stay with you on the last night (the night where you need to drink Epsom salt, olive oil and lemon juice) and the following morning. Some people experienced vertigo / dizziness (like yours truly) and hunger. Others were ok (like my SIL) Apparently, you would feel as such if you have a lot of toxic... So would be good to have someone to help you in case you erm... need help while in the toilet! But this would go away very quickly especially after breakfast.
One last thing, I am not a medical personnel. The above is written based from my experience and what I know from researching from the internet and speaking to organic shop owners and others who have tried it before. So far, I have not yet heard / read of any serious side effect from this method. But if you have any doubt please consult your doctor first.
