Holistically and Naturally Treating Gallstones, Gallbladder Attacks, and What You Can Do About Them Without Getting Butchered by a Surgeon

Written by Print 

Gallstones are believed by the medical establishment to be formed inside the gallbladder: not the liver. They are thought to be few in number, instead of hundreds. Supposedly, gallstones are not linked to pains other than gallbladder attacks. Orthodox doctors believe these things, because whenever patients have acute gallbladder pain, some of the stones have already moved inside the gallbladder, and they are big enough, and sufficiently calcified enough to view with X-rays. The stones inside the liver are rarely noticed. It is where gallstones actually originate.

Whenever the gallbladder is surgically removed, the acute gallbladder attacks disappear, but the bursitis, other miscellaneous pains, and digestive problems remain. Those who have had surgical removal of their gallbladders frequently continue to get bile-coated stones elsewhere that are identical to the supposed gallstones described by medical literature. Doctors virtually never mention this to patients, and promote the surgeries as a permanent cure.

For the sake of long-term health, gallbladder surgery should be avoided, if at all possible. Therefore, it is unwise to go to a hospital for gallbladder issues, unless the problem becomes truly unbearable. We offer a pain relief solution that helps substantially. However, we do realize that there are occasional cases, which require emergency intervention. In the worst cases, a person could use the remedy cited below before leaving for the hospital, or consume it during transit; and hopefully the problem will be resolved by the time that the person arrives.

Fast Pain Relief from a Gallbladder Attack

Drink 1/4 a cup of apple cider vinegar (preferably stored in glass). If possible, also chase it with 8 ounces of apple juice (preferably organic), or mix both together. Most of the pain should disappear within 15 minutes.

Prevention and Treatment of Gallstones

The following natural protocol helps to correct liver dysfunction, in addition to helping combat gallstones (liver stones). It will holistically improve a person's overall health too.  Several of the recommendations target cholesterol, because stones are often made of cholesterol.

  • Reduce fat intake overall, especially unnatural and toxic fats like hydrogenated oils, soy, and canola. Natural fats (like butter) are better, but they should be used in moderation nonetheless.
  • Omega-3 supplementation is recommended by way of flax seed oil capsules.
  • Niacin (Vitamin B3) is helpful for people with cholesterol or skin problems.
  • Red yeast rice reduces cholesterol, and its active compound is used to make pharmaceutical drugs for cholesterol. This has the benefits of the drugs, without the dangers, addictions, or expense. For years, the F.D.A. tried to block sales of unprocessed red yeast rice and supplemental extracts, because they competed with the patented drugs that are based on the same rice; so the all-natural rice was conveniently reclassified as a 'drug'. This has become a common trick ever since the U.S. Congress forbade the F.D.A. from regulating nutritional supplements, in lieu of similar abusive behaviors.
  • Sunlight exposure converts the excess cholesterol reserves stored inside skin into vitamin D-2, which is later used by the liver to make vitamin D-3. Therefore, sunlight helps in multiple ways. It dramatically boosts the immune system.
  • Exercise. No explanation should be required.
  • Milk thistle (available as a supplement) is a liver tonic.
  • Dandelion root (available as a supplement) is another liver tonic.
  • Avoid soy lecithin and all soy products. Soy products can have disastrous effects upon hormone balance, and this is especially true for women. The phytoestrogens inside soy products attack the thyroid. The presence of gallstones has been shown to have a relationship with hormone imbalances. Also, be advised that all soy is now genetically engineered.
  • Vitamin C makes cholesterol more water soluble, allowing a body to better eliminate excesses.
  • Turmeric increases the solubility of bile.
  • Consume apple cider vinegar, lemonade, or apple juice regularly. Supplementing with several tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day is best.
  • Castor oil transdermal packs neutralize inflammation. A rag must be soaked in pure, cold pressed castor oil that is obtained from a health food store beforehand. The excess should be squeezed-out just prior to use. Next the rag should be placed on bare skin over the organ. Put a piece of plastic on top of the rag. Then place a hot water bottle on top of that. The hot water bottle should be made as hot as possible, so long as the patient can tolerate it. If the person is numbed by drugs or otherwise, then use some common sense in helping the person to get an appropriate level of heat. This transdermal system should remain in place for a minimum of 30 minutes, and doing this daily will benefit most patients. It is also recommended that the immediate area underneath the patient be covered in plastic too, because some of the castor oil will run down onto furniture or floors.
  • Licorice is another liver tonic.

The 2-Day Naturopathic Gallbladder Cleanse Procedure

There are other, more thorough cleanses available, but these take a minimum of a week to implement. Anyone trying to rid himself of gallstones wants fast relief.


  • 1/2 cup of cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large grapefruit (or 2 small)
  • 3 lemons (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt
  • 3 cups of fresh grapefruit juice or fresh apple juice
  • Chamomile supplements


  • Test to see if you have a bad reaction to Epsom salt by holding about a 1/4 tsp. of it in your mouth for about half a minute, and then swallow it. If there are any problems, then this entire procedure is a no-go. This test is essential for safety, because an allergic reaction to the massive amounts used later could be fatal.
  • This is a 2-day procedure, so ensure that you have two days that are completely free of obligations before beginning. Most people should begin on a Saturday.
  • Try a chamomile tea to test for ragweed and chamomile allergies.
  • Discontinue all medicines, vitamins, pills, and herbs if possible.


  1. Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch, such as oatmeal (or porridge) with fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves, bread with honey, baked potato, or vegetables that are salted only. Consume no butter, milk, or cheese. These fat-free meals allow bile to build up and develop increased pressure within the liver.
  2. 2:00 P.M. -- Discontinue all food. No cheating! Breaking this rule can later cause illness and a failure of the flush. Prepare the Epsom salt solution by mixing 4 tablespoons with 3 cups (24 fluid ounces) of grapefruit juice or apple juice inside a large jar. This makes four servings of 3/4 a cup. Place the jar inside a refrigerator to get it cold (this is for convenience and improved taste). Grapefruit and apple have properties that aid the cleanse, in addition to making the procedure more bearable.
  3. 6:00 P.M. -- Drink one serving (3/4 of a cup) of the Epsom salt solution. You may add 1/8 tsp. of Vitamin C powder to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterward, or rinse your mouth. Place the cold-pressed olive oil and grapefruit on the kitchen counter to warm up.
  4. 8:00 P.M. -- Repeat by drinking another 3/4 cup of Epsom salt solution. Ready yourself for resting, because timing is important for success.
  5. At 9:45 P.M. -- Pour 1/2 a cup of olive oil into the pint jar. Wash grapefruit in hot water and dry. Then squeeze out the juice, by hand, into the measuring cup. Remove the excessive pulp. You may add lemon juice to improve the flavor. Add the juice(s) to the olive oil. Seal the jar tightly and shake it vigorously. This should make at least 1/2 a cup (3/4 a cup is better) of this mixture, but do not drink it yet. Visit the bathroom, even if it makes you late for your ten o'clock drink. Do not be more than 15 minutes late, or you will expel fewer stones.
  6. 10:00 P.M. -- Drink the olive oil solution. Take four 300 mg. chamomile capsules with the first sips to help you sleep through the night. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. You may use oil and vinegar salad dressing, or straight honey to chase it down between sips. Have these ready in a tablespoon on the kitchen counter. Make certain you drink it standing up. Get it swallowed within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons). Lie down immediately afterward on your right side. The sooner that you lie down, the more stones you will get out. Be prepared for bed ahead of time. Do not bother with clean up, because timing is very important. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes after laying. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There should be no pain because the bile ducts are dilated to full size, due to the Epsom salt solution. Go to sleep.
  7. Next Morning -- Upon awakening, take your third dose of the Epsom salt solution. If you have indigestion or nausea at any point, treat it with ginger supplements, and wait until it has passed before drinking the Epsom salt solution. If you absolutely can not hold the ginger in the stomach, then hold the ginger powder in the mouth for direct blood absorption through your cheek tissues. You should return to bed after you have finally consumed the Epsom salt solution. Do not begin this step before 6:00 A.M.
  8. Two hours later -- Take your final dose of the Epsom salt solution and return to bed again.
  9. Two more hours -- You may finally eat again. Begin with only fruit juices. Half an hour later, eat fruit. After another thirty minutes, you may eat regular foods, but keep the meal light. By evening, you should feel recovered.

Conclusionary Remarks

Expect diarrhea during this procedure. It is normal, so do not be alarmed. This regimen does not butcher an already weakened body, and leaves the person stronger in the long term. It is cheap, fast, effective, all natural, and generally very safe. Unlike modern medical treatments, these methods will usually cure the problem, instead of merely suppressing the symptoms until the problem becomes much worse.

Precautionary Statements

Disregard our entire cleansing procedure if you have allergies or other negative reactions to any of the ingredients used for it. If you are experiencing serious health issues unrelated to the gallbladder, then we recommend delaying this cleanse until the other issues have been resolved. Readers must use their own common sense to determine if they are having a health emergency, and to take appropriate action if so. Do not perform this cleanse during a gallbladder attack.

  • Seven  - Gallstones

    Wish my sister had known about this 10 years ago. She was suffering from (what turned out to be) gallstone pain. She had no idea what is was and became a bit frightend. Went to her regular doctor, who told her she was having 'panic attacks' and gave her an anti-anxiety prescription. For the next 2 years, she kept having pain off and on. Various doctors told her it was stress and anxiety, acid reflux, indigestion, etc. Finaly got so bad we took her to the emergency room. She was given a 'test' and was told it came back negative for gallstones, then was told to go home and rest. 30 mins later we took her back, they did an x-ray and 'what do you know!' tons of gall stones and an infected, inflammed pancreas. Both of which they then proceded to surgicaly remove from her.

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    Those are just unimportant 'parts' that can be removed without serious long term consequences, right? Let me guess... she has severe diabetes now, along with major hormone imbalances causing various other health problems that require a drug dependence for the rest of her life? Funny how that always seems to happen.

    They could have tested her with a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar, and this would have been a more accurate test. No radiation required! Of course, they can't 'patent' or 'regulate' Apple Cider Vinegar. It's not "real" medicine in other words, unlike their "safe and effective" medicine.

  • Seven  - Gallstones

    She is doing alright now. Did have hormone imbalance for a while after that. And of course they gave her anti-depressants for it. After that happened is when I started researching holistic and natural medicine. I helped her learn about staying away from 'precription' meds, processed foods, bad sugars, etc, etc. She mostly eats a vegetarian diet now with alot of fruit and some chicken thrown in once in a while, but no other meats.
    Not sure if it is related at all, but about 5 years after the surgury, she got pregnant and had a baby girl who turned out to be deathly allergic to tree nuts, especialy peanuts. Would be interesting to see if it is realated somehow. Otherwise (thanks to holisting living) my niece is now a very healthy fruit and veggie loveing kid!

  • Willmilline

    Please e-mail me exercises for someone coming off gallbladder surgery?

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    If you have gone under the knife, then your highest priority is that you do not injure yourself (further). A rupture or opened incision could lead to dire consequences, so please proceed with great caution. It is not often that you'll see "ask your doctor" coming from us, but this is certainly an exception. Your doctor and surgeon should be experts on minimizing damage after surgery. At least we hope they are. Mild exercise like walking could be beneficial if taken in great moderation, but frankly I think what you need most is rest and recovery time. Be sure to eat plenty of healthy fats. Pile on the Omega-3, butter, yogurt, red meats (preferably organic) and etc., and eat anything that your body craves, even if it is normally considered unhealthy. During times of extreme stress, it pays to trust your body to tell you what it really needs, and sometimes it is something surprising. Listen to your body concerning the diet, not "the experts".

    I have a question about soy. If it's so problematic, why have Asian women used it for years w/o consequence? Is genetic engineering the only reason? thanks

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    I'm sure the genetic engineering plays a large role, but don't be so sure that Asia women have not had problems. Spend a little time doing research into hormonal diseases for Asians, and you're likely find to yourself surprised. At the same time, take note that Asians overall are also less likely to even get diagnosed properly (if at all) due to inferior allopathic medicine. Finding problems is one of the things that allopathic medicine does best (that and emergency medicine).

    Another problem with soy is that it produces natural hormonal pesticides that prevent insects from reproducing (causes sterility), and these same anti-hormones effect humans too. The processing (or fermentation) that is used to make the soy "safe" plays a large role in how safe it actually is. Supposedly, the ancient methods were much safer than the modern chemical industry ones.

    "The amount of phytoestrogens that are in a day’s worth of soy infant formula equals 5 birth control pills"

  • Mike Lambert  - Gallbladder

    For years I suffered from frightening bouts of gallbladder pain, not knowing what they were. I was a young man and gallbladder problems were, I thought, largely confined to the 'fat, fair and forty' set and mainly women's concerns. It was finally diagnosed as gallbladder trouble and I had it removed, thinking that that would be end to it. Well, yes, and no. I now have, some 15 years after the surgery, a big scar down my stomach, which I have learned to live with. But I suspect that things have never been particularly easy for me since the surgery. I seem to have a fairly low tolerance for much in the way of fat, and have had problems with swollen lymph glands. I also suspect that my testosterone levels might not be as high as they might be. I'm now 52. What's your take on this?

  • Brisbanner

    I also underwent a gallbladder removal as a young man of 21 years of age. The medical report said my condition was "highly unusual" for my age and sex. I have not had a repeat of the attack symptoms since it was removed, (thank goodness, ouch!) and 12 years later, I regret not knowing what I know now, but life goes on! Thank you for posting this remedy. No doubt will be a wonderful help for many, many people, no surgery required!

  • Missy

    I had my gallbladder removed 15 years ago and now i have awful pain that doctors diagnosed as stones in my bile duct. I got all the stones removed but 2 months later I have pain agin on the right side. I wonder if I should follow the cleansing treatment anyways.

  • transuster

    I skipped the epsom salts and passed 20 stones after two days of frightening pain (something stuck in the colon). Never saw gallstones before - real scary.

  • Donna MillsBergen

    My girlfriend is scheduled for surgery to remove her gallbladder next friday before she's had a chance to cleanse because her doctor told her that the ultrasound shows that her gallbladder is black and might be leaking. Is there any hope for a homeopathic, cleansing after this diagnosis?

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)

    In that position, we would most certainly try. The body is never the same after an organ has been removed. It is designed to heal itself, and with your help, this can almost always be achieved.

  • Krissy

    I had my gallbladder out when I was only 18 .I am now 33.The past three years I have had pain in the area where my gallbladder was.I can't tell you how many times I have been doubled over in pain and have gone to the ER and they have done blood work and xrays and say "Oh you are fine maybe it is just scar tissue".Funny they were real quick to take it out but never really explained to me how I would be after it was taken out and now if I have pain they act like it is all in my head.

  • Justine

    I had what my doctor thinks was a gallbladder attack last week. I have been slowly recovering. But symptoms keep popping up. The latest one confuses me. I have a sore throat. Just started yesterday. Exactly one week from the attack. I am trying to figure out if the two things are related or if I might be coming down with something on top of this? Thank you for the great advice in this article.

  • Samantha  - sam

    No message. I do want to ask a question. I am a female, age 67, very good health. Last week, I was told I have "layers and layers of stones in my gallbladder." Naturally, I was told that surgery is the "only cure", do you agree?

  • Dyanne Martin

    I have been having what my doctor describes as gallbladder pain for about 7 months now. At first I thought I was having a heart attack because the pain was mainly in my chest radiating through my shoulder, back and arm (all right side). Dr. did an EKG and saw no evidence of heart problems/disease. My ultrasound showed no evidence of gallstones or gallbladder inflammation but my liver enzymes were slightly elevated and I had a slightly fatty liver. I changed my diet drastically (only good fats, fresh fruits and veggies with occasional organic meats) and started exercising. As long as I ate healthy foods the pain was much less frequent, almost non-existent, for several weeks. Now the pain is back and I am having heart palpitations as well. I am also experiencing, like Justine above, what feels like a sore/achy throat, also on the right side. Is this common for gallbladder problems? I didn't want the surgery at first but I just want this nightmare to end. I tried an Epsom salt cleanse once before but now it is all back. Do I need to do this cleanse more than once? The one that I tried was not exactly the same as yours but close. So glad I found this site. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

  • leanne  - gallstones

    I was told a few yrs ago that I should hav my GB removed, after being horribly treated by the surgern when I was in the gown and ready for the opp I got dressed and walked out not having it done.
    Recently I'm getting allot of pain and prescribed allot of pain killers for this of which I do not take all the time just when really needed. But I also have panic attacks. In this last week I've had loads and seems to always be there, very anixious and had to have an ambulance sunday night as I thought I had another blood clot in my lung! I was told it was a bad attack but I've never been this bad with then daily and I can not sleep either. Can the GB make me have these panic feelings like this? As I don't understand my stptoms and my gp is not nice at all and not helpful.

  • Lisa  - Gallbladder Attack

    Well like many of the stories I've read here, I too have been having periodic pain in my mid-chest that's can be mild to severe. I've had the tests and they say everything is normal.

    However pain like this is not normal. It's 130 in the morning and I decided to try one of the remedies written above.

    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and apple juice. It was ironic that I had both in the house because I rarely use either.

    Getting back the apple cider was a tough job, it burns the throat and makes you think it's going to come back up, the apple juice was a welcome chaser.

    It said wait 15 minutes and the pain will be gone. I thought it was too good to be true, but by golly, it worked completely.

    Now I'm tempted to try the Epsom Salt treatment.


  • Bill  - cleanse while breastfeeding

    Hello , i am wondering for my wife if this is ok for her to do while breastfeeding? It seems ok? Thanks!

  • Sarah C. Corriher (H.W. Researcher)

    The apple juice and apple cider vinegar mixture would be fine, but we recommend holding off on the full cleanse. For now, just following the dietary changes listed in the article would be the wisest approach. It's best to always err on the side of caution when there is a child involved.

  • Della schooler

    My husband is a class one diabetic of 53 years he has been diagnosed with gall stones and been having attacks after eating anything. His dotor is now saying that his blood works shows there is something going on with his liver. Could this be related? Also is this vinegar ander cider stuff ok for him and/ or the cleanse. He is wanting to avoid surgery since he is a diabetic.

  • C. Thomas Corriher (Managing Editor)

    Let me get this straight:

    1. His obedience to his doctor has destroyed his body to the degree that he is now on the verge of liver failure.

    2. The supposed solution is to butcher another part of his body where inconvenient symptoms are occurring.

    3. You're not yet sure of the relationship between such "help" and the fact that he's dying in front of you.

    4. Next, you come here after having been forewarned about the dangers of questioning the system and ask us if apple cider vinegar is safe.

    You just can't be too careful with apple cider vinegar, can you?

    Sadly, this is one of the most common types of message we get. We usually ignore questions about whether our methodologies are as safe as butchery, radiation, and poisonous sorcery. Such question are very insulting considering how much work we expend in trying to save people from the evil meat grinder that known as modern medicine.

  • Amy C  - You need a "Like" button

    This response was so hilariously sarcastic and bold I laughed out loud!

  • David Halkola  - C Thomas Corriher

    The tone you exhibit motivated me to not only join your community but buy your book. We all need your clarity of thought and correct response to the evil meat grinders :)......When I told my surgeon NO to Gallbladder removal his come back was "well if you don't get it removed you could DIE". I said that's a hell of a sales pitch and ask him if God made a mistake placing this useless piece of meat in my body known as the Gallbladder?
    He said well if you don't get it removed its not a matter of whether you will get another attack its when. He was right I got about 3 more attacks, the last one lasted for 48 hours;
    but I discovered Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar 8 months ago and I drink it mixed with water and Cinnamon and guess what?????? No GB attacks :)

  • Lisa

    I have suffered with something and even ended up in I.C.U with left side chest pain, left arm and shoulder pain and severe lung pain. but the test showed my hart is fine. I now suffer with such bad acidity attacks that I can hardly eat anything and from time to time I have pain on my right side upper abdomen - can this be the cause of gallstones? I also have some pain in my right side kidney.
