  18. wait you didnt really talk about the treatments

  19. To anyone suffering from gallstones (basically 100% of humanity): There is a method to get rid of your gallstones that has helped thousands of people worldwide suffering from sever gallstone issues. BE ADVISED that the Epsom Salt procedure lasts for 2 days, make sure to do it when you don't plan on going anywhere. The procedure is as follows:

    I. Dissolving Gallstones. The very first step is to relatively dissolve the hundreds (if not thousands) of gallstones that are located in your system. To achieve this, you need to drink 1 quart of ORGANIC apple juice for the period of 5 days minimum. The pectin in the apple juice will dissolve the larger gallstones, rendering them easier to empty.

    II. Epsom Salt, Grapefruit juice and Extra virgin olive oil: After having consumed 1 quart of ORGANIC apple juce every day, we may now commence the actual procedure of gallstone removal.

    On the morning of the day in question, avoid consuming the following foods:

    -fats, oils

    -margarine, butter

    -milk, other dairy products


    4:00 PM: Dissolve 4 leveled tablespoon of Epsom salt in 26 Oz of water. Portion the solution out into 4 equal doses (6,5 Oz)

    18:00 PM: Drink the first portion of the Epsom Salt solution.

    20:00 PM: Drink the second portion of the Epsom Salt solution.

    21:00 PM Pour 4,5 Oz of EXTRA VIRGIN Olive Oil into a 1 quart bottle. Put 1 big or 2 small RED grapefruits in hot water and leave them in it for a few minutes. Then squeeze the juice (You will need around 7 Oz). Pour it all into the bottle holding the Olive Oil. Shake it frantically until it becomes water like.

    22:00 PM Shake the Grapefruit solution again and drink it while STANDING (Those too sensitive for tastes can use a straw to avoid gagging/throwing up). Try your best to drink the solution within 5 minutes. Once done, IMMEDIATELY lay down (preferably try to fall asleep). For at least 20 minutes, try to stay completely still.

    Next Morning (not earlier than 06:00 AM). Drink the third portion of Epsom Salt Solution. Around this time, you should have a very intense bowel movement resulting in diarrhea. 2 hours later, drink the last portion of Epsom Salt. Expect intense bowel movements for the next 2 hours. This is the time when most of your gallstones will empty from your system. After around two hours (or once the diarrhea stopped), you may start consuming juices (vegetable, fruit), 30 minutes later you may consume fruits. 1 hour later you may eat as usual, but first, preferrably light foods.
