Some of you may have stumbled upon such articles by chance or received it via forwarded mail. Dr. Lai Chiu Nan, a Taiwanese-American researcher and alternative health guru has recommended a way for removing gallstones naturally. According to her, everyone has gallstones, some more or less than others. The gallbladder is located on the right side of the abdomen below the liver. The gallbladder functions to store bile, concentrate it and release it during digestion. Gallstones form when the liquid bile hardens. Their sizes vary from a grain of salt to the size of golfballs.
1 - Liver
2 - Common bile duct
3 - Gallstones
4 - Gallbladder
People who suffer from gallstone attack may experience such excruciating pain that they have the entire gallbladder removed via surgery. Therefore, the natural removal of gallstones may come as a relief to some who may want to try alternative ways before opting for surgery as a last resort. This method actually works! I have personally tried it and will share my experiences in another post. Do note that there are a few practitioners who have raised several possible risks associated with this method whereby some say that the gallstones may get stuck in the gallbladder ducts if the gallstones are too big. Some others have warned against using Epsom salts in the procedure. So please make informed decisions and do not hold anyone liable if you have decided to embark on this method. On a more optimistic note, you can find many "success" stories shared over the Internet and health forums where some people can flush up to hundreds of stones in one procedure.
Below is an e-mail received with regards to Dr. Lai Chiu Nan's DIY Gallstone Removal method.
REMOVING GALLSTONES NATURALLY
by Dr Lai Chiu-Nan
It has worked for many. If it works for you please pass on the good news. Chiu Nan is not charging for it, so we should make it free for everyone. Your reward is when someone, through your word of mouth, benefits from the regime. Gallstones may not be everyone's concern. But they should be because we all have them. Moreover, gallstones may lead to cancer. "Cancer is never the first illness," Chiu Nan points out. "Usually, there are a lot of other problems leading to cancer.
In my research in China , I came across some materials which say that people with cancer usually have stones. We all have gallstones. It's a matter of big or small, many or few.
One of the symptoms of gallstones is a feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal. You feel like you can't digest the food. If it gets more serious, you feel pain in the liver area." So if you think you have gallstones, Chiu Nan offers the following method to remove them naturally.
The treatment is also good for those with a weak liver, because the liver and gallbladder are closely linked.
1. For the first five days, take four glasses of apple juice every day. Or eat four or five apples, whichever you prefer. Apple juice softens the gallstones. During the five days, eat normally.
2. On the sixth day, take no dinner.
3. At 6 PM, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) with a glass of warm water.
4. At 8 PM, repeat the same. Magnesium sulphate opens the gallbladder ducts.
5. At 10 PM, take half cup olive oil (or sesame oil) with half cup fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and drink it. The oil lubricates the stones to ease their passage.
PS. 1cup=250ml, � cup lemon juice=3 lemons (aprox.)
The next morning, you will find green stones in your stools. "Usually they float," Chiu Nan notes. "You might want to count them. I have had people who passes 40, 50 or up to 100 stones. Very many."
"Even if you don't have any symptoms of gallstones, you still might have some. It's always good to give your gall bladder a clean-up now and then.
