Remove Gallstones Without Surgery

In the past two years, I have come across a few friends and relatives who have been diagnosed with gallstones problems. So what are gallstones exactly?

In very simple terms, gallstones are the accumulation of cholesterol from the fats that we consume which goes into the gallbladder to be digested. Most times, these little lumps of gallstones will pass on to our small intestines and therefore will not cause any problems.

There are three types of gallstones:

  1. Cholesterol stones –  mostly 80% cholesterol
  2. Pigment stones – about 20% cholesterol plus a mixture of bilirubin and calcium salts that are found in the gallbladder bile
  3. Mixed stones – contain 20% to 80% cholesterol and a mixture of other components found in the gallbladder bile.

 It has been noted that women are at a higher risk (especially before menopause) and  the risk increases as we age, especially for those of us who are over 40 years old. Guess in our modern busy world, we have less time to focus on proper diets and most of us do not drink enough water in a day to flush toxins from our body. Although it has not been proven that there is a link between diet and gallstone formation, it seems wine and whole grained bread may decrease the risk, whilst low fiber and high cholesterol diets, including rapid weight loss, constipation, skipping meals, and not enough of folate, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C may increase the risk of gallstones formation. Of course, genes do play a part too. If you have family members who has or had gallstones before, the chances are you will be quite prone to the condition too.

 Recently, Kathy, a long time friend from school went for the gallstone surgery and although she is recovering, it has been a painful and slow process. She was not so fortunate to avoid surgery as I did not know about her condition till after.

 Another friend of mine, Omzie, was luckier. He was diagnosed for surgery but I managed to give him this recipe and he avoided being hospitalized for surgery, which saved him a bit of money as well.

 Most people with gallstones show no symptoms at all until the gallstones become inflamed. When this happens, some of the symptoms below may be experienced:

  • Pain in the upper right side of the abdomen
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Pain between the shoulder blade or below the right shoulder
  • Lower back pain

So, please do share the recipe below to flush out gallstones, even in very severe case, as in the case of Omzie, he flushed the gallstones out and avoided surgery by following through with the recipe.

The treatment takes about 6 days and has worked for most people that I have talked to whom swear by this recipe. However, please note that this is an alternative treatment and as always, it is wise to talk to your doctor regarding your individual case, should this treatment fail to flush out your gallstones.

Removing Gallstones Recipe

Day One to Day Five – keep to your normal diet but throughout the day, everyday:

  1. Drink four glasses of pure apple juice (yummy)
  2. Eat 5 apples (heard that green apples work better as they have higher concentration of pectin)

Day 6 

  1. Have your normal breakfast , then start fasting.
  2. At 6 pm – take Magnesium (Epsom Salt) – 1 teaspoon in a cup of water.
  3. At 8 pm – take another dose of Magnesium as you did at 6 pm.
  4. Before bedtime, drink a mixture of 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice mixed with 1/2 cup of olive oil.

 By the next morning, you should be able to pass a number of green and brown stones which you will be able to see floating in your toilet bowl.

 

Been told this works for liver cleansing and kidney stones as well……and what’s the harm in trying something natural to keep our body healthy and well.

Jin Ji Du Li (Golden Rooster Stands On One Leg) Exercise

Healthcare has always been my number one priority as I believe that without health, we cannot enjoy life to the fullest. And I am a firm believer of living life to its fullest! What I am about to share here today probably has been shared around the world many times. However,  this effective exercise only takes up less than 3 minutes of our daily time with huge positive impact! So what exercise am I talking about? “Jin Ji Du Li” of course.
“Jin Ji Du Li” is a simple and yet effective Chinese exercise that originated from Shaolin’s San Lu Pao basic training. It is said that that when “Jin Ji Du Li” exercise is practised daily, it can help heal many illnesses and diseases such as hypertension, high blood sugar/diabetes, neck and spinal problems, and even dementia.
“Jin Ji Du Li” is practised by standing stationary on one leg with your eyes closed. This may sound easy but try doing it, and tell me how you did!
According to Zhong Li Ba Ren, a Chinese Master on this technique, diseases appear because the coordination between the various internal organs encounter problems and the body loses its balance. If we are over forty, and we cannot maintain our balance for more than 10 seconds, it means we have an aging body of sixty plus! “Jin Ji Du Li” can re-adjust the inter-relationship and functions between these organs, and helps to regress and improve the situation.
“Sifu” Zhong has written a book titled “Self Help is Better than Seeking Doctors’ Help” that teaches simple practical health tips, which has become the best seller in China. In this book, he promotes this one leg standing technique or “Jin Ji Du Li” exercise. He recommends that this exercise be done with your eyes slightly closed. He also points out that there are 6 important meridians passing through our legs. By standing on one leg, the weak meridians will feel sore and will get the required massage, and the corresponding organs along these meridians and their pathways will receive the appropriate “treatment”.
You do not actually need to lift your leg high as it is said that if your internal organs are unbalanced, even lifting your leg a teeny weeny bit will make you wobble. However, if you are a beginner, do expect this effect as your body is just not trained to maintain a standing balance with one leg and eyes closed!
Master Zhong has pointed out that many people are unable to stand on one foot with their eyes closed even for 5 seconds, but with daily practice, eventually we will all be able to balance for more then 2 minutes! As you gain the ability to stand for a longer period, the feeling of “heavy head and light feet” will disappear. The quality of sleep improves and the mind clears up with significant memory improvement.
Right now, the most apparent benefit of doing the “Jin Ji Du Li” for me is the ability to maintain my balance and equilibrium. With practice, I hope to stand for 5 minutes a day, and start having a balanced body!
So get off your butt now, have some fun and put some practice into this technique and do the “Jin Ji Du Li” 🙂

Caffeine Coffee And Wine Lovers

Coffee And Wine Is Good For Health.

This is definitely great news for coffee and wine lovers. Coffee, mostly a morning drink; wakes us up and wine, a dining accompaniment may relax us in the evening.What better way to begin and end the day! I certainly enjoy my cup of coffee every morning, and definitely not decaf ……pfft – decaf is not real coffee! I could not imagine starting my day without real coffee, and a glass of wine would be lovely with my dining when the mood dictates.

According to research as posted in Real Age, these two beverages not only keep the mind young, but in moderation may prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Both these drinks contain substance that could help ward off dementia.

It seems animal studies have shown that  coffee contains granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF) a substance that recruits cells from bone marrow to help sweep out the plaques (beta- amyloid deposits) that cause Alzheimer’s symptoms. And the polyphenols found in red wine reduces the levels of peptides that contributes to the beta-amyloid deposits.

On top of that, coffee and wine may help to strengthen the brain by helping the nerve cells (neurons) build new connections and protecting it from the neurotoxic effects of Alzheimer’s plaques.

If you are already a coffee drinker or a wine lover, this additional benefit is certainly welcoming news.  Enjoy your drinks, but please do not get overboard as too much will have ill effects.

So how much is too much?

It entirely depends on your metabolism rate, and unless you can rate how fast your metabolism can do its job,  moderation is always the best.

For coffee drinkers:
On an average, two to four cups of normal brewed coffee (about 95mg of caffeine per cup) and no more than 500mg of caffeine per day is considered a safe level of consumption. Kids, adolescents, pregnant women and those who may be having conditions or taking medications that may be affected by caffeine more easily should cut back even further. Too much coffee may cause headaches, restlessness, insomnia and aggravate acid reflux. To check out how much of your favourite coffee you should drink, use this guide from Mayo clinic.

For wine lovers:

Research by NIH has shown that frequent heavy or binged drinking can be detrimental to your cognitive performance/development and may cause brain damage and liver disease. Pregnant women who drink heavily are also more likely to have children with with serious cognitive deficits. So again, I would say please do enjoy your wine….a glass a day is good for your heart.

So here I make a toast that we may all all drink wisely to our health. Cheers!
