I was dignosed to having gallstones. The doctor prescribe that I must have it removed since I am a diabetic, I should have it removed before my glucose levels are manageable. i have read from the internet about gallstone flush wherein I have to go a regimen of drinking apple juice for 6 days and on the 6th day drink olive oil and ipsum salt to flush the gallstones. Is there any truth to this one?

Putting gallstone flush, gallbadder clense, or liver clense, in an internet search engine will turn up information as to how to do this. The procedure you are describing is similar to one my wife used. The exact procedure my wife used is too long and involved to explain here. My wife did this and it did work. It is not without risk. My wife prefered this risk to the risk of surgery. The procedure essentially partially dissolves your gallstones and your body passes them out with the stool. You can actually see the gallstones afterwards in the toliet Almost all doctors advise against this procedure. Especially surgeons. To give you some idea of what is entailed. Ingestion of lemon juice, apples, beets, and olive oil is involved. Do not merely try to eat these ingrediates all at once without following the instructions. It won't work. Find the appropiate web site and follow the instructions. BTW, for anyone who does not want gallbladder trouble, it seems that eating apples, beets, lemons, and using olive oil as a regular part of your diet helps to prevent gallstones. I can't prove it, but my wife's problems have not returned. She eats these things on a regular basis. Good luck.

I think surgery is really needed inorder for gallstones to be removed as it will cost a lot of problems if such stones remains in your system. You will be the one to undergo sufferings like constant stomach ache and also unbearable pain from epigastric, so the best way and the best method is only Surgery, then avoid food that are salty and also with hot chili on it, it will just worsen your disease, common cause of it was eating such foods as well.

I think when it comes to these issues you should really rely on your doctors. If you still are not satisfied, you can ask for a second opinion from another doctor whom you think is more knowledgeable about your health issues. You mentioned you have gallstones and you are a diabteic and your doctor suggests you have an operation, it's not something you should be messing around with. Take care and be safe.
