A word of warning re gallstone flush
MOMMY TALK - MOMMY TALK By Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan () - July 22, 2003 - 12:00am
I am truly overwhelmed by the hundreds of e-mails I received regarding the gallstone flush recipe. As much as I would like to answer each of your queries, I thought maybe printing this article would help answer your questions. Just a reminder for those who are eager to try this recipe: Please consult your doctor first. I am very much interested in helping people who have a similar affliction as mine but any attempt to treat a medical condition should always come under the direction of a competent doctor. I cannot accept responsibility for any consequence that may arise out of a failure by the reader to take medical advice. I am only a reporter who presents facts based on my actual experiences and that of others who have followed the recipe I printed on July 1, 2003. The recipes contributed by readers are printed so that you may decide which one you’re most comfortable with. I can only vouch for what worked for me. Those who want to try the recipe of Boy Apuya may purchase their Epsom salt at The Wellness Institute or call 722-2354.
The Recipe That Worked For Me
Here’s the three-day gallstone flush recipe I printed last July 1, 2003. I tried this also with my 85-year-old grandmother and she passed stones as big as a one-peso coin.

4 gallons of apple juice (you can also purchase organic apple juice from Healthy Options)

4 gallons of water ( preferably distilled steam water but purified will do)

1/2 c extra virgin olive oil (available at Rustan’s, Unimart and Shoppersville)

3 lemons (or enough to make 1/4 cup lemon juice)

1 tablespoon tomato juice

1 straw (optional)

If you do this cleanse, look for freshly-pressed, raw apple juice in the supermarket. Or, if you have a juicer, you could use freshly made apple juice. Otherwise, bottled, unsweetened apple juice is fine.
Doing The Cleanse
Consult your doctor before doing this cleanse. Each day for four days, drink up to one gallon of apple juice and up to one gallon of distilled water (and crackers once in a while if you get really hungry).On the evening of the third day, when you are tired and ready for bed, drink 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil. Chill the oil – it tastes better cold and use a straw to sip it. It is better to not let it touch the lips to minimize the unpleasantness of the oil. Right after taking the 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil, drink 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Then go directly to bed and lie down on your right side with two pillows under the right hip.. You may change your position after four or five hours.

At some point after drinking the oil and lemon, you might feel like vomiting or burping. Sip a little of tomato juice but not more than a tablespoon of it. Hold it in your mouth and then spit it out. You may also experience nausea. Don’t worry, just imagine your stones being pushed out of your gallbladder. On the morning of the fourth day, expect to pass stones. They will normally float on water.
The One-Day Flush
Last week, Deborah of Baguio relayed how she benefited from the apple gallstone flush. She shared a similar recipe that required her to fast only for one day. Basically, it entails doing the same procedure as the three-day fast except that you do it for only one day . Take the olive oil and lemon mixture that same night. This one-day gallstone flush, sent by Deborah Ruth Madrid of Baguio City, may be found at http://www.godsplan.com.
