Hv - I totally respect you and your advise. I know how you feel about liver flushes, and I believe using bitters cleans the liver.
But I have wondered how to explain my sister's experience and the many different kinds of stones I myself have passed. If it was a reaction to the oil wouldn't they have all looked the same?, how come they looked different in the same flush? And looked very different in different flushes? And I saw stones of many types in the same flush? I collected them in a colander used for that alone so I really saw what came out. And the results were favorable... meaning my sister got rid of her gallstones and my BMs turned from light tan to medium brown. What caused this?
The first set of questions could be applied to if they were real gallstones as well. If they were real gallstones then why would they have been different colors when nearly all true gallstones are formed from precipitated cholesterol? The fact they are different colors lends more evidence that they are not really gallstones. Part of the answer is that these "flushes" produce these pseudo stones through two different mechanisms. One is through the reaction between the olive oil and the lemon juice or other citric acid sources. The second method is through the reaction of the sterols in the olive oil with the cholesterol in the intestines from food sources and bile. This partially explains the different looking pseudo stones produced by the "flushes". Also keep in mind that there are a number of impurities in the intestines from our diets that can get trapped in these pseudo stones also creating different colors. You are not going to have this in the gallbladder, again showing they are not coming from the gallbladder.
One of the strongest pieces of evidence though that these pseudo stones are formed in the intestines is the size of some of these pseudo stones. If you look at the photos that some people post some of these pseudo stones are the size of a quarter or larger. The problem with this is that it is IMPOSSIBLE for something that large to pass through the bile ducts. Even with the magnesium to dilate the bile ducts the bile ducts can only dilate 2 to 3 millimeters. A quarter is about 25 millimeters across. As we can see it would be IMPOSSIBLE for a stone this big to pass regardless of what you use.
Why the stool was changing from light tan to dark brown? Simple, the oil gets the bile moving instead of remaining stagnant. This does not mean that real stones are present or being passed. for the same reason the ingestion of small amount of oil with meals can help prevent gallstone formation. Ingesting large amounts of oil increase the risk of lodging a stone in the bile ducts if real stones are present, which requires emergency surgery.
