Forty, Fat and Female

Hello Everyone,

I just thought I would share a simple fast and treatment for cleansing a tired gallbladder. When I worked as a critical care nurse many years ago, the doctors would say that the profile for a hot gallbladder was Forty, Fat and Female! Most of you do not fit that profile and I have known of 20 year old young men who needed to have their gallbladder surgically removed. The gall bladder is located on the right side of your abdomen attached to your liver. It produces bile, a thick, green fluid that aids in fat digestion. The gall bladder can produce green stones that interfere with normal function and cause blockages making it very sick.

There is a simple fast and treatment that you can do routinely to clean out the gallbladder. You need to plan 3 days. On the first 2 days you can only eat apples or pears or their juice. You can drink a lot of water and some herbal teas also. On the third day you need to do a juice fast-drinking only apple or pear juice plus water. Just before going to bed, prepare a mixture of 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1/2 cup olive oil. Drink this all at once. The taste is not pleasant and can be followed by 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice. Go to bed soon after drinking the lemon juice-olive oil mixture and sleep on your right side all night. You want the mixture to go into the gall bladder and dissolve some stones. In the morning you should get some nice fluorescent green kidney stones released. The 3 days is necessary to make sure your intestines are clean and the juice-oil mixture can get to the gallbladder.

My husband and I have done this every 10 years or so and have had great results.

I definitely fit the bill, hahaha! Have you heard of the Epsom salt cleanse for the gall bladder?

That one sounds better than the epsom salt one that Ketty did. She posted it on here too.

This very well may be a great thing to do. But I am always skeptical of any kind of cleanse. I know that we don't always treat our bodies the best, but I know that God made our bodies to work well, and I am not always sure that cleanses are a good idea. I looked some things up on the internet, and here are just a couple of articles to check out. One is from the Mayo Clinic so I would think it is pretty reliable:


and another one...


Just some food for thought...

I think that those reports from the Mayo clinic are in support of the medical way of getting things done. Unfortunately, they very rarely support alternative medicine.

I tried to research the harm in doing the cleanse and can't find any real substantial reasons not to try it. There have been no reports of anyone having an adverse effect from it. If there's a natural way of taking care of my body, I'm all for it. At best, it will work and I won't have to see a doctor about it. At worst, I'll have to see a doctor about it. hahaha! So I'm going to give it a try.

Most reports by the way, say it has helped. There are actually a few who have had an ultrasound before and after the cleanse and found that it did work. For the ones that say there are still gall stones it's because they didn't flush them all out and need to do it again.

I'm sure it's not for everyone. The thought of drinking olive oil is the least appealing thing about it for me.
