I did read recently about a link between typhoid fever and the formation of stones... and doesn't HC speak of liver flukes?
It kind of makes intuitive sense to me that with any proliferation in viruses or bacteria, whether as a result of infectious disease processes or internal environment, ... those critters are going to want to make the environment as hospitable for THEMSELVES as possible. Therefore.. maybe stagnating the flow of bile.. which would provide a nice warm place for them to reside and/or a food source (and also mates with which to increase their numbers)... is to their advantage... so they have found a way to block the flow, viz stones.. a bit like beavers building dams!
Dietary considerations maybe enhance the ease of the build or provide the starting point environmentally. I'm sure it's a vicious circle type thing and a chicken and egg too!
However my intuit maybe a sandwich short of a picnic... it happens!!!
BTW I recently started flushing with smaller quantities of oil and juice than I've read about.. just out of curiosity.. and was really surprised to get stones out including a large green 3.2cm one amongst others. It was even more of an ahah moment when I came across the typhoid-stones link.. as I had typhoid (together with cerebral malaria) some years back. And for a long time now have been looking to the Malaria as a source of my health probs. I hope this is the answer cos I sure am getting tired of it.
