Discussions that mention demerol

Alternative Medicine board

You gall bladder problem (if that's what it is) can ABSOLUTELY be fixed. I was in the hospital about two years ago with an acute gall bladder infection. It was VERY severe. I had more intense lengthy pain than I read was possible. Mine lasted for over 18 hours and I was put on demerol so I could cope and sleep (which by the way still wasn't possible due to the extreme pain) I got an ultrasound and was in the hospital the next day scheduled to have the operation just hours later. I was hooked to IV and everything. Then a specialist comes down to see me before the operation...pokes and prods me and tell me I can go home since my pain had subsided for the time being. At the time I was VERY angry and just wanted to have the operation and get it over with. Well it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

I went home, did my research, and tried the gall bladder cleanse. it consisted of taking epsom salts, grapefruit, and olive oil. For the next 5 or 6 cleanses I had passed an ungodly amount of stones and have had absolutely NO problems ever since. However after you are totally clean it is a good idea to do a cleanse every 6 month do get rid of any build-up that may occur. PLEASE give this a try...it could save you from a lifetime of digestive problems, and your current pain. Since I can't post links on here I'll cut and paste the recipe for you:

Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day.

Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they could prevent success.

Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch such as cooked cereal with fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves or honey (no butter or milk), baked potato or other vegetables with salt only. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.

2:00 PM.

Do not eat or drink after 2 o'clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later.

Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tbs. in 3 cups water and pour this into a jar.

[ You can substitute 3 cups water with 3 cups freshly pressed grapefruit juice, or freshly pressed apple juice .]

This makes four servings, 3/4 cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only).

6:00 PM.

Drink one serving (3/4 cup) of the ice cold Epsom salts. If you did not prepare this ahead of time, do it right now. You may also add 1/8 tsp. vitamin C powdered to improve the taste. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive and grapefruit out to warm up.

8:00 PM.

Repeat by drinking another 3/4 cup of Epsom salts. You haven't eaten since two o'clock, but you won't feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success; don't be more than 10 minutes early or late.

9:45 PM.

Pour 1/2 cup (measured) olive oil into the pint jar. Squeeze the grapefruit by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with fork. You should have at least 1/2 cup, more (up to 3/4 cup) is best. You may top it up with lemonade. Add this to the olive oil. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh grapefruit does this).

Now visit the bathroom one or more times, even it makes you late for your ten o'clock drink. Don't be more than 15 minutes late.

10:00 PM.

Drink the oil you have mixed. Drinking through a large plastic straw helps it go down easier. Be warned that this mixture WILL NOT tase good, and is hard to stomach, but is worth it in the end. Take it to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).

Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don't. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time. Don't clean up the kitchen. As soon as the drink is down walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open (thank you Epsom salts!). Go to sleep. You may fail to get stones out if you don't

Next morning. Upon awakening take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea wait unit it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don't take this potion before 6:00 AM.

2 hours later.

Take your fourth (the last) dose of Epsom salts. Drink 3/4 cups of the mixture. You may go back to bed.

After 2 more hours you may eat. Start with fresh fruit juice. Half an hour later eat fruit. One hour later you may eat regular food but keep it light. By supper you should feel recovered.

How well did you do?

Expect diarrhea in the morning. Use a flashlight to look for gallstones in the toilet with the bowel movement. Look for the green kind since this is proof that they are genuine gallstones, not food residue. Only bile from the liver is pea green. The bowel movement sinks but gallstones float because of the cholesterol inside. Count them all roughly, whether tan or green. You will need to total 2,000 stones before the liver is clean enough to rid you of allergies or bursitis or upper back pains permanently. The first cleanse may rid you of them for a few days, but as the stones from the rear travel forward, they give you the same symptoms again. You may repeat cleanses at two week intervals. Never cleanse when you are ill.

A few more pieces of advice. Don't cleanse more often than every 2 weeks as the epsom salts can screw with your electrolytes if you take it too regularily. Also if you have back pain (personally when I was sick, I felt like I was always lying on a brick) due to gall stones you will likely notice it subsides after several cleanses if not the first. As you may have read all stones that are in the gall bladder come from the liver, so remember it takes a while to completely clean yourself, but when you are clean it feels great. And you didn't have to go under the knife.

Remember.. if the gall bladder DOESN'T MATTER as most doctors will tell you, then why is it there? You may find out very quickly (as I did) that the gall bladder is VERY important. It develops the most potent bile your body produces in order to break down fats etc. So there's no wonder people have digestive problems after they are removed. I have also personally noticed that lots of people that develop gall bladder problems own microwaves, and use them regularily to cook their food. I say this because I know from personal experience I used to get complications when I ate fatty foods, or used the microwave to heat my food, and have heard others say that before also. I haven't used one since, nor have I had problems since. Whether you take my advice on the microwave or not.... they are a very unhealthy, unstable way to process food and it's scary how much they are used by the general public.

Anyway I hope this helps. Good Luck
