The Gall Bladder
by Jon David Miller, holistic wellness educator and author
The gallbladder is a bulge or sac in the bile duct that holds and concentrates the bile produced in the liver. Bile is an alkaline mixture of enzymes, minerals and fats, including cholesterol.
The gallbladder is stimulated by the presence of dietary fats proceeding through the digestive tract, to squirt its contents into the small intestine for the purposes of alkalizing the food materials and emulsifying and digesting the fats.
Over time, the gall bladder may accumulate "gallstones", which are made up of congealed cholesterol and minerals. These stones can clog the gall bladder and the bile duct, impairing the secretion of bile. This can cause digestive problems, including leaving fats undigested. High cholesterol or triglycerides and excess weight may result. Also the back up of bile stresses the liver.
A large gallstone can be very painful. A blocked bile duct may cause the gallbladder to swell and become inflamed. The pain can radiate throughout the abdomen and even to the back. Fever and chills may accompany a gallbladder attack.
A gall-bladder purge for clearing gallstones using apple cider, magnesium, extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice has been recommended as a periodic procedure by natural health practitioners for over thirty years. It can help lower blood cholesterol, make weight loss easier, improve the function of the liver and gallbladder, and may even eliminate the need for gallbladder removal surgery.
Gall Bladder Flush
It is best to do this flush when you have no work or major activities the following day.
For three or fourdays, eat lightly and consume several glasses of apple cider or apple juice per day to soften and reduce the stones with the malic acid in the juice.
On the day of the flush, begin fasting after breakfast.
In the mid afternoon take several hundred milligrams of good quality magnesium, best in a liquid form. Repeat the intake of magnesium at 5 or 6 pm. Magnesium relaxes the muscles around the bile duct and the intestines.
Then about 7 or 8 pm begin sipping down a pint of organic extra virgin olive oil (first pressing) with the juice of several fresh lemons. The olive oil and lemon juice may be mixed or consumed separately. You may take your time and consume this over the period of an hour or so.
The olive oil will prompt strong squirts by the gall bladder. The lemon works on reducing the size of the stones. (Helpful for kidney stones too.)
After consumption, lay on your right side with your right leg drawn up toward your lower right abdomen (the location of the gall bladder). Hold this position as best you can for a couple of hours then go to sleep.
The next morning when you go to the toilet you will likely find in your stool a number of green pea and marble-sized "gall stones" made of cholesterol and minerals.
It is a good idea to repeat this process in about a month to make sure the gallbladder is well evacuated of these stones. Keep in mind to do this again every few years.
NOTE: Those with a known gall bladder problem should consult their professional health practitioner before engaging in this procedure.
