I had a number of horrific attacks before I started a programme of cleaning my gallbladder and liver. I had two more attacks and some discomfort during the cleansing programme for the first 4 month but not actually during a flush. Also these attacks were far less in intensity and duration than the "before" attacks. I also learnt from this website how to reduce the intensity of an attack when it happens. I am now free of any pain and discomfort and the worry, nee fear, of getting further attacks. I have also gained the additional benefits of feeling healthy, stronger and more confident. My stomach has lost its bloatedness, my digestion is good and regular, and my cholesterol blood levels have dropped.
I didn't have a naturalpath advising me and my doctor wasn't very keen to subject me to an operation that might not actually cure the problem.
You are going to be stuck with three opinions and 4 options:
1. Do nothing and continue to live in fear of biliary pain. The risks associated with this option are unknown and before the days of surgeons and medical insurance people had to put up with it or take a concoction recommended by someone.
2. Follow you doctor's advice based upon his formal qualification that dictates; the solution to gallbladder pain is to have it removed. Doctors do not have any other medically approved solution today. There are a few other procedures like stone dissolving using solvents but there have fallen out of use. There is a small chance that the operation results in your demise through unforeseen complications or infection. The main worry is that 2 out of 5 people don't get sufficient benefit from the operation to make it worth while. The biliary attacks and discomfort continue because the origins lie in the liver. Flushers who flush and haven't got a gallbladder still expel stones.
3. Follow the advice of your naturalpath by adopting a regime to dissolve the stones. This is usually associated with some dietary changes, like reducing fat and stop eating eggs, cabbage, etc. I don't have any information available about the success rates of naturalpath but I do know it is extremely difficult to reverse the growth of stones and it takes month probably years. There is only a remote chance to dissolve hard pigment stones or stones that are polymerised. Naturalpath remedies are also unable to deal with a number of biliary problems associated with stones.
4. Gallbladder flushing falls outside conventional medicines although it is promoted by a few doctors today. If it was widely accepted it would rob many surgeon of a reliable income. Consequently the arguments about flushing are more to do with finances than health. In the year that I have been contributing to this forum there have been many great success stories. There are a handful of people that get nauseous or have discomfort, but this passes. There has been one person that had a painful attack after flushing and went to hospital were the gallbladder was removed. Unfortunately they received alarming advice and lost they nerve rather than flushing again immediately.
It is your decision.
