The Gall Bladder Cleansing Diet

No swim today. I'm having the runs (loose stools) today and so didn't go swimming.
Yesterday was the 6th (last) day of the diet I call the Gall Bladder Cleansing Diet for lack of an official name. This has nothing to do with the Atkins Diet or the Cabbage Diet or the now more popular Southbeach Diet. No, it's not a lifestyle kind of a diet. It is basically a short term cleansing diet that supposedly rids the body of gallstones. It's only 6 days and is very to do - which all the more piqued my curiosity.

An officemate of mine, Tony, tried this immediately upon learning it coz his family had this medical history of liver cancers. His dad and grandma died of cancer of the liver. Since the liver is very much functionally related to the gall bladder, he reckons it's not gonna hurt. As he said, cancers related to the liver and gall bladder all start with stones somewhere. The results of his diet were amazing. His gallstones passed out on the morning after his 6th day. To see his testimonial, complete with pictures, you may click on here. I've removed the non-pertinent info from the email. It's a bit gross though so let that be a fair warning.

Here's the short article:

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.

Here are the easy to follow instructions for the regimen:
  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.
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.
