DIETING AND THE FORMATION OF GALLSTONES
There are many benefits from dieting besides losing excess pounds. Many people reduce their blood pressure and cholesterol level by lessening their food intake. If you are considering a diet program that is low in calories and rapid or substantial weight loss, your risk of developing gallstones increases.
Gallstones are clumps of solid material, mostly cholesterol that form in the gallbladder, a small pear shaped organ located under the liver in the abdomen. The gallbladder contracts and releases bile, a fluid made in the liver that aids in digestion. Bile contains substances called bile salts that help break down fats in the food we eat. Bile helps eliminate cholesterol from the body via the digestive system.
Researchers believe that dieting causes an imbalance of bile salts and cholesterol in the gallbladder. The level of bile salts decreases, while cholesterol levels increase. Going for long periods without eating, as dieters often do, decreases gallbladder contraction, resulting in the formation of gallstones as the bile is not able to be released.
Sick Gall Bladder Profile:
Gall Bladder Cleanse
Plan your week’s cleanse so that you an be at home on the seventh day.
For 6 days take the following with water mixed with freshly squeezed lemon juice:
On the seventh day fast, drinking all the apple juice you want.
At bedtime on the seventh day, blend:
Drink Quickly. Go to bed at once. Sleep on the right side. Most case studies report that the stones pass during the next 12 to 24 hours. You may hear them clinking against a porcelain toilet bowl. If you pass stones, you may want to repeat the cleanse at 2 month intervals until you no longer pass stones.
Take Gallbladder Formula (2 capsules 3 times per day) for 2-4 weeks to prepare for the cleanse and lessen the pain.
FIRST DAY: Upon arising, take 16 ounces of unsweetened, unfiltered apple juice.
Every four hours, take 1 Cascara Sagrada to stimulate bile flow and keep the colon moving. If you do not have at least two bowel movements, take a colonic or enema. It is MOST important that the bowel be kept open! If you get diarrhea, take less Cascara Sagrada. All day you should drink a minimum of ½ gallon of apple juice (plus any other liquids you desire.)
SECOND DAY: Repeat the first day.
One-half hour before bedtime take 2-4 ounces of Virgin Olive Oil mixed with 2 or more ounces of fresh lemon or grapefruit juice. Pour from one glass to another at least twenty times to mix well before drinking. Drink with a straw to cut the taste, if necessary. Repeat ½ hour later. Go to bed and sleep on the right side. Take an enema if nauseated. With in 24 hours you should expel stones, mucous or sludge through the bowel. This treatment should be repeated in 14 days for best results.
AFTER THE FLUSH: For continued support take Liver Cleanse Formula or Gallbladder Formula, two per meal. This will enhance your digestion and continue the cleansing and building process.
