How to Remove Gallstones Naturally

How to Remove Gallstones Naturally via

A few years ago when I was struggling with severe symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease I also began having pain in my right flank area. After a few tests, my doctor concluded I had gallstones and advised me to have my gall bladder removed. At that time I was in so much physical pain from the chronic hives (a symptom of Hashimoto’s) that surgery sounded overwhelming, so I decided against it.

I had recently started working with my nutritionist to combat the thyroid disease, and I asked her if she had another solution. She did – a gallbladder and liver flush series. She said it would take 48 hours, but my gallbladder should flush itself after following her protocol.

Before I tell you about the protocol and the results, let’s look at what gallstones are: “The gallbladder is a reservoir or holding tank of bile salts, which the body uses to emulsify and assist in the digestion fats. When we eat fat, bile is released into the digestive tract to break fat down into absorbable fatty acids. Bile salts are made of cholesterol. Gallstones are a sign that your body has ‘decided’ to increase its reservoir of cholesterol. Why would it do this? The obvious answer is that it has become ‘afraid’ that the supply of cholesterol is low, therefore it uses the strategy of storing extra for a ‘rainy day’.” Dr. Cowen

It’s important to remember that cholesterol is a very powerful antioxidant for the body. When I was diagnosed with gallstones, I was struggling with severe symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease, so it makes sense that my body needed all the cholesterol it could get to help fight the disease. Additionally, I probably wasn’t getting enough cholesterol in my diet, so my gallbladder “decided” to pack some away for later.

Back to the protocol – Kim sent me a 48-hour cleanse involving eating different foods at different times during the day, drinking Epsom salts dissolved in water, drinking olive oil combined with fresh grapefruit juice and then finishing with colonics or coffee enemas. The worst part was the Epsom salts – they are salty … yuck! The result? I passed over 40 gallstones in one day! I was shocked. The pain in my right flank disappeared for good. Kim instructed me to repeat the cleanse every 4 weeks until I stopped passing gallstones. I did the protocol 4 more times until everything was clear.

Isn’t it amazing what the body can do with the right resources? For legal reasons, I can’t give you the exact protocol, but if you call or email Biodynamic Wellness and tell them I sent you, they can do a short consult with you and help walk you through the process. If you know someone who is struggling with gallstones, please pass this on to them. A 48-hour cleanse was a much better solution than surgery for me!

    Wow, great advice! I have recently talked with a few people who are struggling with gallstones, I will definitely be forwarding your post. :o)

  2. I’ll keep this in mind! Glad you’re doing well now and that you didn’t need to go through surgery – ahhh, the wonderful healing power of food!! I just lost 59 pounds in about 8 months and have been worried about gallbladder issues from that, but I do eat a fair amount of cholesterol and fats. :)

  3. Hi Carrie,
    YES!!! It is truly amazing at what the body can do, it is SERIOUSLY thee most Amazing machine ever Created! My husbands co-worker just had his gallbladder taken out. Unfortunately it is to late to help him in this cause, but I did just email it to my husband to share with him. Maybe he will see the benefit in looking into other things. His co-worker is undergoing procedures for sleep apnea so this might help him to reconsider the choices he’s making.
    Thank you again for ALL that you do!

      You’re welcome! I hope this post can help others avoid surgery and turn to more natural options. :)

  4. Ally

    Both of my sisters and I have Hashimoto’s and have had our gall bladders removed. I wish I had found this back then because removing one’s gall bladder comes with consequences.

  5. Laura

    I have gallstones and have refused to remove my gallbladder so this sounds very interesting to me. Could you tell me if it was very painful to pass the gallstones? I have heard they can get stuck in your bile ducts and that it is very painful. Thanks!

    • Deliciously Organic

      This protocol “lubes” everything up inside so they can pass easily. (I hope that makes sense. I don’t know how else to explain it!). :) I had some pretty bad cramps for about 30 minutes and was very nauseous the 2nd day of the cleanse because my liver was detoxing, but hey, I’ll take that over surgery! :)

    • Lynn Melonic

      Read “The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse” by Andreas Moritz. Great book on this subject. Found out that the liver can and ususally has gallstones just like your gallbladder. This book will answer all your questions.

  6. Be VERY careful with your gallbladder. I tried to do it naturally. I drank the drinks and ate the food. It turns out that my gallbladder was so damaged that there was nothing I could do but have it removed. I found this out when a stone got caught and blocked the bile duct to my pancreas. I ended up in the hospital with pancreatitis and almost died from it. I was in the hospital for 7 days and it took almost 3 months to recover. For some people this may work but in general be very careful and make sure you are monitored by a capable physician if you are going to attempt to manage your gallstones naturally.

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m sorry to hear of your health issues. I’m glad that you had good practitioners who were able to help you. I specifically didn’t give out the protocol for this because I find it imperative to be under the care of a licensed practitioner when doing a cleanse such as this. I was under the care of my nutritionist through the entire process and she took very good care of me. :)

  7. Natasha

    My daughter has done this as well, worked excellent! No more gallbladder or liver pain ever again. No gallbladder removal and she released 100’s the first time! It’s yucky but surgery is so much worse along with a lifetime of aftermath with a missing organ. Two friends of ours didn’t know before either, and had them removed- to those who have had your gallbladder removed look into ‘ox bile’ as a supplement to help you digest. They both swear by it :) glad we found out too, thanks for sharing your experience.

    • Deliciously Organic

      Wow! It’s so great to hear that your daughter had the same positive results. Fantastic!

  8. Barbara

    Wow! I wish I had known about that ten years ago. It used to be (and maybe still is) a problem medical professionals associated with obesity. Several people expressed surprise when I developed gallstones, because I was of normal weight. However, I was on the slim side because I had pretty much eliminated all good fats from my diet. That was back when I thought all fats were bad – and especially cholesterol! I found out later there was a connection between gall stones and a nearly fat-free diet, but I didn’t really know why until you explained it. Thank you. :)

  9. Betty Nettles

    Hi, I can’t seem to access the gallbladder cleanse recipe. Would you please email it to me. Thank you. Love the site. I had hip replacement surgery coincide with menopause. Extreme stress/pain physically and emotionally for a couple of years. I have hypothyroid, I have gained so much weight in the belly. My doctor said my adrenals were so depleted they couldn’t even measure them. Prior to the surgery, I couldn’t keep weight on due to stress. Now I’m stressed because of the weight. I’m going to start with the cleanse, which I have done before, and realized I should have continued them because on the second cleanse they were much larger and lots of them. So I’ll start again. I keep hearing about coffee enemas but don’t have much info about them. Can you post something more about that? I signed up for your newsletter.

  10. Great summary, Carrie! I have used this protocol many times personally and with clients at Life Fitness Academy. Thanks for posting and hopefully it helps many others!

    • Deliciously Organic

      Great to know! It’s so great that we can solve health issues with a simple protocol such as this! :)

    My niece who is a junior in college just passed Kidney stones and her doctor of course prescribed meds to take after to help them from coming back.
    Do you know if there are cleanses for kidney stones as well?

  12. Amanda

    I have hoshimoto’s and just got out of the ER for an umbilical hernia and the cat scan shows I also have gall stones. I have a surgery consult on Monday and they are supposed to do both at once. Now I am thinking I shouldn’t have my gall bladder removed. I have to have the hernia repaired because it is causing me so much pain but I only have 2 gall stones. I was just talking to my fiance about going all organic which is how I came across your site. I’m so glad I did! Thank you for sharing this.

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m sorry to hear of your health issues. I would definitely call my nutritionist’s office and ask them for a consult ( Saving your gallbladder could save you from other health issues in the future. And, if it helps to know, most allopathic doctors will look at you strange if you talk about alternative methods. The last medical doctor I saw told me to enjoy “drinking the Voodoo water”. They clearly think I’m crazy, but they can’t really argue when they see my lab work. :) So, don’t get discouraged if they aren’t supportive of you looking into other options.

  13. Susie P

    My husband recently did a similar 48 hour cleanse that involved magnesium supplements, olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon juice and grapefruit prescribed by our chiropractor. It worked! Our local surgeon would never, ever believe that there’s a way to get rid of gallstones without surgery…there is so much the medical world does not know!! I’m an RN who works in a hospital, yet I use only natural medicine for my family…I’ve seen enough to know which works better in the long run! (And I believe surgery & removing organs should only be a last resort…those organs have a purpose!)

    • Deliciously Organic

      Thank you for sharing. I’m so glad your husband was able to remove the gallstones without surgery! And I agree, surgery should always be a last resort!

    • Mike

      I’m curious if your husband got an ultrasound afterwards to confirm that the stones were in fact, gone. I’ve been reading a lot from MDs that the things that come out are not actually stones, but curds that get created when the oil and lemon mix.


  14. Barbara

    I will try this. My Dr. says my GB is, “…full of stones, and needs to be removed.”

  15. Barbara

    Thank you for providing this information about your experience, Karen. However, you should ADD THAT THE INFORMATION……THAT THERE IS A $30 FOR 15 MINUTES CHARGE!!!!

    So mentioning your name is, as I was just told only a DISCOUNT!!! off of their regular over the phone charge.

    People should be aware of that.

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m sure most practitioners would like to give consults for free, but then they wouldn’t be able to make a living. Yes, there is a charge if one decides to call in for a professional consult. I can say their information is invaluable and if a $30 charge helps one avoid surgery and lifelong meds, then that’s worth it in my opinion.

      • Donna

        I had to laugh when I read Barbara’s comment, in all CAPS no less. If a $30 fee from a professional chokes you up, just wait until you see the *surgeon’s* bill! lol There is a great website called Healthcare Bluebook that lists a “fair price” for various health procedures. Just type in what you are getting done and hit search. Now, I’m not saying that the fees listed will be the exact same as what you might pay at your local hospital but it should come pretty darn close. (Different hospitals actually charge different prices for the same exact procedure.)

        A gallbladder surgery runs about $5,301 according to this site. Perhaps people who have had this done can let us know if that is in the ballpark of what they (and/or their health insurance) paid? Considering that info, $30 is an absolute steal! :-)

        In any case, I found this post to be very informative and eye opening. There are always a lot of claims by fishy looking websites about this or that alternative treatment but an actual personal experience and outcome is a true gem. Thanks for posting this!

  16. Jeri

    you mentioned that when you started the cleansing you were dealing with hoshimotos disease, are you aware of any beneficial ways that i cant treat this rather than taking synthroid everyday, there must be some natural remedies

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m sorry to hear of your health issues, and yes, there are so many things you can do to heal from the disease (synthroid will only help with symptoms and TSH levels and Hashimoto’s is so much more complex than TSH). I can’t give specific advice since I’m not a licensed practitioner, but I can say I ate a diet void of all processed foods, low in sugar, rich in animal fats, void of all grains, pastured meats, pastured eggs, raw/organic dairy, lots of organic vegetables, some nuts and seeds, and fermented foods. I also did several detox therapies and took whole food supplements as prescribed from my nutritionist. I have a cookbook coming out this fall where I will tell the entire story, and share over 125 of my favorite grain-free, nutrient-dense recipes.

      Also, for info on how to reverse thyroid disease – you’re in luck! The Thyroid Sessions is available this week and will give you all sorts of info on how to reverse the disease. I highly recommend it!

    My wife is suffering from Gall Stone, and it’s 30mm. Doctor suggested to remove gallbladder by surgery. But my wife is not prepare for surgery, as she had recently(before 3 months) cesarean delivery for baby. So please suggest me what I need to do. Or Is this therapy useful in this condition?
    Waiting for your replay.

    I don’t get why you don’t give us the recipe? If you’re going to write a blog you should write it intricately, this was not helpful it is a tease. Smh

  21. dian

    Its simply not that easy. Sorry to disappoint anybody but there is no straight forward cure all remedy for gallstones. Im currently in the middle of a remedy that i pray works this time. These stones are the only thing in my 55 years of life that have sent me the bed unable to walk or function anymore. I only manage to get back up with the help of chanca piedra herb. Apparently it dissolves and softens the stones enough to allow them to pass. But i take a considerable amt of those all the time or I will not make it a week.

    Ive tried so many cleanses and read so many opinions and testimonies and there just is not one simple answer for everyone. All of them have merit and work for ssomeone. But dont get your hopes up because it may not work for you.

    I figure that Ill find the right combination eventually .. but I can certainly sympathize with anyone who has gone through this.

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m sorry to hear of your struggles with gallstones. I will say that this solution worked for me and my doctor officially declared me clear of gallstones after following this protocol. I know it’s not for everyone, but I believe this can help some.

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m sorry to hear of your struggles with gallstones. While I don’t think this protocol works for everyone, this did help me immensely and I was declared free of gallstones by my doctor after following this protocol. I hope that sharing my story can help others.

  22. matt

    thank u for sharing this , i have recently turned to healthy choices after years of abusing my body with bad foods ,excessive alcohol and drugs. Now that I no longer put poison in my body iam thankful for people like you for sharing knowledge and experience on how to try and heal the damage and remove toxins from previous bad choices.

    thank you and ill be reading and following from now on -matt

  23. Leslie

    Do you know if this works to get sludge out of the gallbladder? I’ve been told there are no stones present so they assume my pain is related to sludge. I’d love to avoid surgery as well.

  24. Haley

    Hi Carrie,
    Do you know if you can do this cleanse while nursing? I have 9 week old twins and gall stones. My liver enzymes are slightly high and they suspect it is from the stones. I’ve also had three attacks. However it’s been very quiet for a month. I don’t want to have surgery for many reasons but mostly because of the babies. I’m also worried about the cleans because I’m pretty busy with the twins and nursing every 3 hours. Do you think the cleanse is a good option for my situation?


  25. Michael

    I had heard that it is possible to clear the gall bladder of gall stones but here in the UK the Doctors treat us
    as if they are secret service agents because I’ve asked three doctors how big and what my gallstones are but none tell me the details. I had 5 bouts of nausia and bloating in 6 months and after an ultra sound the doctor said you’ve got gallstones ! All I would like to say is that because I’ve had a ‘Eureka’ Lemon tree over 25 years in my conservatory and just picked the last 6 lemons I decided being an engineer who is prone to experiment ,to cut one in half and put all the juice with the pulp into a glass and drink it. I am very surprised that only 2 hours after I drank it a pain that was incessant just below my ribs to the right which was very tender indeed has gone completely ! No wonder my next door neighbor bought me a book last year for Christmas entitled —- The Power of the Lemon… I must drink more of that stuff !

  26. G.Teresa

    my daughter has a gallbladdestone of 20mm . is it possible to remove it naturally as prescribed Give me valuable advice

    • Deliciously Organic

      I’m not a licensed practitioner, so I can’t say for sure. I recommend talking with a holistic practitioner to give you some guidance.

  27. Heather

    can they do a consult over the phone or email or do I need to be local? I’ve recently discovered I have gallstones but no blocks or urgency to remove (yet). How did you know you passed so many stones? Do you just see them when they come out?? Sounds weird. Thanks for sharing!!! I really don’t want to GMO down the surgical path. Also, were there any useful tips for avoiding/preventing future gallstones after you finished your cleanse?

    • Deliciously Organic

      They consult via phone or Skype if you don’t live in the area. And, without getting too personal – yep, you see them come out. :) I don’t remember any tips for avoiding gallstones in the future. I was doing a lot of detox at the time and also working to reverse a lot of inflammation. The combination of those two things plus a healthy diet has kept me gallstone-free for over 4 years!

  28. Gladys

    Hello! My name’s Gladys and for the past year my gallbladder has been killing me. I didn’t find out until last month that my gallbladder was the problem. I called the doctor the Hospital recommended and they said it would $200 just for the conciliation. I’m already swamped with hospital bills and I’m only 18. If I go through with this surgery I’ll be in debt until my 40’s. Please, send me the exact protocol your doctor recommend. I don’t know what else to do. Thank you so much!

  29. Arijana

    Hey !!! So I was just told that I have to remove my gallbladder cuz of stones. I really hate surgery and on top of this I just got married and we were planning to start having babys. can anyone help me with this flush system. like how much of this should I drink.

  30. ede

    Epsom salts is only magnesium. Why not just use magnesium tablets? Or magnesium “oil” which is not really oil at all, but magnesium that has already been dissolved into a heavy solution of water?

  31. Jessica

    Did you experience pain? Hex effect? I tend to get violently ill when cleansing. Any thoughts? Thank you.
