Re: Question about gallstones

Hi cftmju,

Someone else who identifies as "em" and myself have posted similar questions about this. What we really need are lab reports on this. Some good hard data that shows:

1. Blood cholesterol levels before and after flushing
2. Lab reports on stones flushed
3. Any other evidence

This is the only way that this question can be settled. Although there is a lab report posted somewhere on this site, more are needed.

I personally feel that the whole "stones" argument may be a red herring. I did the flush and felt exhausted the following day and then absolutely marvellous the following day. I feel that there is possibly some sort of benefit in the flush that hasn't been identified yet and that clinical trials may shed some light on it.

I don't think that doctors are going to be willing to recommend this flush to their patients, as anything that may move Gallstones into the common bile duct can result in illness to the patient (and yes, possibly death, if pancreatitis happens). Since doctors are about saving lives and illness prevention, it's hardly surprising that they're not in favor of something that can bring on a gallstone attack. Also, the current medical method of dealing with Gallstones (cholecystectomy) apparently has a high success rate. Looks like it's going to remain the choice of doctors until more data comes to light.

What really annoyed me about my recent doctor visit was the lack of information I recieved on (a) diet or other measures to prevent Gallstones (b) alternatives to surgery (although he did mention in passing an oral chemical that can be used to dissolve them). The whole "we'll take the gallbladder out, you don't need it" line really bothers me. If I don't need it then why did nature put it there?

I also tried recently to get my doctor to agree to blood cholesterol tests (and possibly testing the "stones") recently but didn't have much success. If anyone has suggestions on how to test the flush procedure, I'll be a willing guinea pig.

Kind Regards,
