"To clarify the situation and eliminate such questions, I sent a sample of gall stones to a medical analysis lab run by a Ph.D. who heads up the Science Department at Texas Woman's University in Denton. He ran the necessary tests…
His analysis of the stone sample I sent was 91% cholesterol and the rest was bile salts, water and inert ingredients. In other words, the sample had the chemical contents of gall stones. And the report clearly states it was gall stones".

This cleanse may not be for all people. Please see your health practitioner. Although we have received many positive emails (some of which are below), we also received the following email from a person who works in a pharmaceutical company. We were unable to communicate with them as they forgot to make their email address returnable.
"I was one of the trusting people who tried this olive oil method for cleansing out the stones in my gall bladder. 24 hours after doing the cleanse I was in horrendous pain and ended up in surgery removing my gallbladder! The stones that were found would NEVER have been dissolved with this method. I was hoping to prolong the surgery, but this brought enhanced the disease. (? Editor- this is not my typo - I have copied this email as I received it). I suppose ingesting the excessive amount of fat sent my gallbladder into overtime. Please post a warning that this could happen. An ultrasound can tell how bad off the gallbladder is. I was lucky ... I didn't get jaundice, just a slight infection before surgery.
In my opinion, you should not recommend this procedure to anyone without posting a warning as well! I am sure it may appear to work for some people who do not have a severe case of gall bladder disease, but for those of us who unknowingly do, it is not to be used" K.K.
MODIFICATION TO THIS CLEANSE WHICH USES LESS OIL
(This bit is not in the book): Many people (myself, Stephanie Relfe, included) cannot drink a pint (two cups) of olive oil without throwing up. Therefore, I searched for yet another cleanse, which used less olive oil (and again, no epsom salts)
Here is an alternative:
Eat all the granny smith apples and/or FRESHLY SQUEEZED apple juice (NOT store bought) you can for three days. Also drink water. Eat nothing else. On the final evening get ready for bed. Have one cup of olive oil and 1 cup of lemon juice beside your bed. Take as long as you need to drink it. The slower you drink it, the easier it will be to get down and keep it down. Sit up while drinking, but lie down as soon as you have drunk any. Keep as still as possible. Go to bed as soon as you have drunk it all. It is best to lie on your right side.
It may help to mix the lemon juice in the olive oil.
EXCITING UPDATE! A RECIPE THAT TASTES GREAT!
Hello Stephanie, I had a Gall Stone cramp on my upper right side. I had it X-rayed and Ultra-sounded and the doctor said that I had Gall Stones and a fatty Liver. I read your solution for Gall Stones and improvised on it. I took the Lemon Juice and the Olive Oil and some Welch's Grape Juice and a Tablespoon of Honey and put them in a blender and mixed it all up for a minute. What I got was a Lemonade that looked like a Strawberry Milkshake. It tasted great . And there was hardly a taste of Oil.It still did a thorough job on my Gall Bladder.
Sincerely, Harold Samuel Hartley, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

It has been a full 3 days since I have completed the gall stone treatment described on your website. One week ago (on my 35th birthday) I was desperate to find something that would help the severe pain that I had been having intermittently for months from what I believed to be my gall bladder. (The doctor told me it must be 'just some stomach acid' since nothing showed up on the xrays! -- I found out later that if your gall bladder is full of stones, the liquid cannot get in for them to see it on xrays!!!) I was ready to try anything - other than the little that the medical profession had to offer me!
During the treatment, I got hundreds of stones from my gall bladder, 3 or 4 were the size of a large grape and the rest were about the size of a Tylenol. They ranged from opaque yellowish to dark green in colour. I had absolutely no pain during this process and little nausea. The only time that I vomitted was 12 hours after my last swig of olive oil/lemon juice. I guess my stomach decided it was easier to come up than to work on getting that last little bit (about 4 tblsps) down!
I would like to commend you for the information that you are providing and your approach to helping people. I have told others who will be trying it too!! I look forward to the results as I am on the mend. I am very conscious now of what I eat. I don't want to put my body through having to cope with all of that cholesterol again!!
Sincere thanks to you!

about this simple treatment. My doctor told me that surgery to remove my gall
stones was inevitable. In fact, I was preparing to have my surgery the last
week of December 2000. I had no pain or other problems with my gall bladder.

Subject: Re: Gall Bladder
I just wanted to tell someone that I am very grateful for this posting.
I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with "several gall stones." My last gall bladder attack lasted for close to 5 hours. I was in the emergency room all night. The doctors there referred me to a surgeon who wanted to remove my gall bladder immediately. Since my chiropractor, who is very good and studies natural healing, was the first to "diagnose" my problem I consulted him right away. I told him that I didn't want to have the surgery unless it was absolutely necessary. I told him that I found this cleansing routine on the Internet and asked what he thought about it. He said he'd done it himself several years ago but never helped a patient through it. He would be willing to work on the cleansing with me and then follow up with an evaluation of my dietary habits.
I just did the cleansing this weekend. I feel great! I can't say that drinking the oil or lemon juice was the most pleasant experience in the world but it did work and for me it worked immediately. I started passing stones right away. I passed anywhere from 3 to 10 each time I'd go to the bathroom so all together I'd say that I passed at least 25 stones if not more. From here on out, it is healthier eating for me and my family. I will no longer take advantage of what the good Lord gave me.
I'd highly recommend this procedure for anyone looking for an alternative to surgery. Thank you for posting this process on the Internet. It truly is a blessing.

I tried your gall bladder cleanse this weekend. If what you described are gall stones, then I would have to say it was a successful process. I experienced an elimination of over a hundred stones varying in size from very small to some that were as large as a robin's egg. The color was mostly black, especially the larger ones, but there were some that were light green or greenish-yellow as well.
I am looking forward to experiencing the improvement in my health as a result. I have noticed that the cramping sensations that I experience in my stomach haven't occurred after eating as they usually do. I've also noticed that the pain I have on my right side has been reduced.
I plan to do this again in a couple of weeks and incorporate it as a regular routine. Even if these weren't gall stones, they were obviously something that should be removed from the body.

I tried the treatment and I must say, it works!!! Immediately after 6 hours of passing Gall Stones, I felt like a new man. I feel like dancing. Gone are the back aches, groggy feeling, listlessness, and being tired all the time. I feel like I have added years to my life and want to attest to this treatment. A bit discomforting but well worth it over having an operation to remove the gall bladder. Understanding how our organs work and inter-relate to one another helps to understand the uniqueness of each organ and how they each have a role in maintaining our bodies. We just shouldn't remove our organs just because there is a malfunction or problem ... like a car, if it starts to miss, and run badly, you don't remove the engine, you find the cause and it sometimes only means a minor tune-up. I firmly believe as most do, that most doctors are not up on treating health problems but need to be educated more in herbal remedies, and alternate medical treatments.
My sister was leery over the treatment because some said that it may cause a blockage and I would end up in hospital to remove it. I told her "well, if that's so, I have nothing to worry about...if it doesn't work, I will still end up having an operation to remove my Gall Bladder (recommended by my doctor). If it doesn't work, I gain !!! right?
Just needed to pass this on to you and thank you for the information.

I happened upon your website tonite - after suffering most of the day with yet another gall bladder attack, I decided to take proactive action...
I have been suffering with gallstones for several years. I was scheduled to have my gall bladder removed on September 11... yes, "THAT" September 11... but they canceled my surgery do to the "emergency" situation we faced here in Los Angeles.
I had an old Chinese herbalist tell me about the olive oil and lemon juice treatment. I have been using it these last several years every time I have an attack.
However, today's attack (yes, after eating some french fries) is one of the worst since that fateful one many years ago... so, I rummaged around in my kitchen and found my "remedy."
It is truly amazing. While I cannot possibly drink THAT much olive oil and lemon juice in one setting, I do take a couple of ounces every hour or so - it means the pain lingers a bit longer, but it is working. It is starting to subside and I know, by morning, I will pass mini-gallstones and feel much better....
I just wanted to let you know that this "old wives tale" remedy works!!! I have many friends who have had their gallbladder removed that wish they had known about it earlier. I too feel that God gave us a gallbladder for a reason... I'd like to keep mine thank you very much!
Oh - and no more french fries for me. It took me awhile to figure out the culprit.. and here your website named it in the first couple of paragraphs!!!
I modified my dosage a bit... rather than try and take the whole thing at once (the thought made me ill!!)... I took two ounces every 15-20 minutes... it was easier to swallow - no nausea, and I woke up feeling much much better!! I am just waiting for "part 2" of the process (grin)....
I've used this combo (olive oil and lemon juice) for years... and it works. I am so glad I never had my gallbladder removed... I've never been able to figure out why doctors are so eager to get rid of "useless" organs... um... God put them there for a reason!!! Just because we don't "get" the reason doesn't mean we don't need it!!
I'm keeping my appendix too.
Thanks so much for the insight. It helped tremendously!
Dear Stephanie, Again I would like to express my gratitude to you and Dr. Lewis. My bilirubin (direct and indirect) is down and to a safe level. I've lost most of the yellow color on my skin as a result of doing the liver cleans. I have done it three times so far and every time I'm passing more stones. This morning I passed a whole cup of various sizes. Some of the stones are the size of a grape, and there are about 7 of those.
Warm regards, Leila
I returned from hospital today following a rush to the emergency department on Sunday last, following extreme pain in the chest.After significant messing about, I was told that I needed my gall bladder removed. I am naturally opposed to such surgery as I believe “if its there, it was meant to be there (organ). Additionally, the whole process in the hospital for three days was a scary reminder of how inefficient and DANGEROUS our hospital system has become.
Not only was a cancer patients drip containing specific ‘medicines’ for this other patient, hooked up to my drip by mistake, but other clearly identifiable mistakes were made during the three days: One doctor explained that blood tests demonstrated that I had pancreatitus, a second doctor stated that this was not the case a third doctor (They changed each day) said it WAS the pancreas – each of them had the same records and results to go by. AMAZINGLY, following an ultrasound I was told “We could not really tell from the scans if the pancreas was the problem, however we did find some issues with the gall bladder and we suggest surgery to remove it”. I could not believe my ears.
While lying on my hospital bed, I overheard a patient who had recently had two cancers removed from his throat, being told by a doctor “Ah, we’re not sure, we’ll just watch it over the next few days, but make sure you eat something and swallow” – All of this AFTER another doctor only 2 hours earlier had been told that this man could not even swallow his own saliva” – Appalling.
Even though I don’t think my ‘stomach’ will handle the olive oil – I am going to try your suggested method as I am sure I prefer to suffer vomiting rather than have these cooks put a knife to me.
I have had other experiences with medical negligence – one involved a doctor about to stab me with a tetanus injection – He got a needle out, prepared to jab me and had the need on my ankle when I asked “What are you giving me” – he replied and I said “do you really want a manslaughter case bought against you?” – He asked why? and I told him I am HIGHLY allergic to tetanus (i.e. it kills me) - He did not ask me, he did not advise me he was just going to go ahead and jab me.
I fear so much for the people who submit to the apparent “We know best” attitude of the medical profession.
Thank goodness for people like you that put information up on the web.
Hi i'm Mike 39 years old and i was in so much of a stabbing pain everynight on my right side for 2 weeks so its not as intense as it should be yet but i do not want to know that feeling.My pain was in my right side and my back would hurt as well.I have had my appendix removed so i know it could not be that so I purchased the item's of lemons and regular olive oil you described and i took them to the way you say(COLD OLIVE OIL) 1 PINT AND SQUEEZED LEMON'S 1/2 PINT.I thought taking this much olive oil would give me a heart attack.I must say taking these two liquids is not very enjoyable but the results were amazing!!! To think how a simple a home remedy like this really work's.I passed over 25 stone's and i feel great with no pain!!!!Thank you so much..you're an angel,regards Mike, New England
Editor's note: After I wrote to Mike asking him for more information he wrote back:)
I have had the pain for over 2 months and it was terrible at times that pinch in the right side was just terrible and i have been pain free for 3 weeks now..thank you so much, Regards Mike
Webeditor's Note: Occasionally people send me an email claiming that the stones in the toilet are nothing more than olive oil and fecal matter. However, I have yet to see a lab analysis of this. Maybe this is true and maybe it's a lie. Maybe the truth is that some but not all of the stones are gallstones. Page 92 of the book has a copy of a lab test. A copy of that is below.
However, as one reader pointed out, "lipids" means "oils". And the oils could be from the olive oil. However, this does not rule out gallstones. It is possible that the stones are a mix of olive oil and gallsontes.
I would very much like to receive more lab results that shows that some of the stones are gall stones, so that I can post them here. Even better, I would love to publish more before and after ultrasound photos that I have been told of stories of, showing the absence of stones in the 'after' photos. In one story I heard, the photos were done by a gynecologist who would not benefit from a gall bladder operation. Please forward me some if you can so I can publish them.
In the mean time, what is really important is that many people who do this cleanse over and over again report that they feel great and that pain is removed after they do it.
Plus they still have their gallbladder which is needed by the body.
This page is not the only one that talks about this cleanse. This cleanse, in many different forms, has been used by many different natural healers for a very, very long time.

IMPORTANT!!!! Dozens of people who have done this cleanse have saved themselves thousands of dollars (plus complications later in life) by not having an operation. If you are one of these people, please consider passing on this gift by giving a donation to people without clean water. Only US$30 gives clean water to one person FOR LIFE. One billion people currently have only filthy, muddy, manure-filled water to drink which kills over 6,000 children a day. Millions of women have to walk an average of SIX MILES every day to collect it! PLEASE GIVE AT LEAST $2 to www.WaterAidAmerica.org
