Why You Should Cleanse Your Gallbladder

Updated on March 15, 2011

Recently I've been experiencing some really strange pain. It began with pain in the middle of my spine. I didn't think much of this, as I have a history with back problems (scoliosis). I just figured I was experiencing back pain again. Last week I woke up drenched in sweat. It obviously isn't very common for me to wake up sweating, but still, I didn't think too much of it. Later on during the day I started experiencing this strange pain right underneath my ribcage. It was a sharp pain, very hard to explain exactly. All I knew is that something wasn't quite right here. This pain was then followed by pain radiating up to my shoulders. I also had this crazy noise coming from my stomach. It seriously sounded like my stomach was growling, but not just the hungry growling. A growling like a monster was trapped inside of me. So me being the big geek that I am, I decided to google it. Every single website took me to an explanation about "gall bladder stones". I laughed this off at first, I mean come on, I am 22 years old. I weigh around 130 lbs, and I don't eat that unhealthy. How could I get gallbladder stones? The main cause of them is eating a diet high in fat and sodium. But, I did in need have gallstones, and I also learned just how common these little guys are. I read a statistic that around 90% of people get gallstones within their life time. Woman are more likely to get them then men are, especially after the age of 20. So from here, I began my quest.

Why You Should Cleanse Your Gallbladder

There are a few different treatment methods to dealing with gallstones. I enjoy homeopathic medicine, I highly dislike taking medications and getting my body probed. If you go to the doctor complaining of gall stones what will most likely happen is that you will get scheduled for surgery. During this surgery, they will remove of the stones, and if there are too many they may remove your gall bladder all together. Um, Excuse me? Cut out one of my organs? No thank you! So, I started reading about how to get rid of gall stones naturally. Which is how I came across the "Liver/Gallbladder Cleanse". Basically, although there are many different variations of this cleanse, it involves you taking in a large amount of olive oil and a large amount of citrus juice. Personally, I decided If I was going to do it, I better do it big. I downed an entire pint of olive oil, and an entire pint of lemon juice. Not at once though! Let me make sure to clarify that! You take the mixture periodically throughout the night. Now, I don't want to get into too much detail about the technicalities of the cleanse itself. Instead, I will link below the actual cleanse. Also, don't worry! I am not trying to sell you anything and either is the person giving you the details on the cleanse. I am just so shocked by what actually happened.

I have done a number of cleanses. They all promised a number of things: increase in energy, help with digestion, increase in mental function, bettering the immune system, ect ect. So, when I started this cleanse I truly thought to myself that it probably wouldn't work. Hey, I'm a realist after all. Oh boy, was I wrong. Let me first say that this was one of the most uncomfortable 24 hour periods of my entire life. The majority of it was spent on the toilet, and that wasn't fun at all. But I can seriously say that I got rid of over 60 decent sized gallstones! Some people when they do the cleanse go through extensive procedures to extract these stones from the toilet. Yeah, sorry, I didn't do that. Anything that is coming out of my body is coming out of their for a reason. Im not going to hold onto the stuff as a prize to prove that it really worked. All I can really say is give it a try, maybe you'll get lucky. I certainly did, and my energy level has increased so much!
