Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I discovered last January that I had a lot of gallstones after making a trip to the emergency room due to extreme pain that persisted a week. An MRI showed I had many gallstones and the doctor said he would like to see me have surgery within a month. Since I prefer natural remedies I saw this as an opportunity of one month to see if I could address the problem myself.

First thing I did was remove all fat from my diet - that does not mean eating low-fat or non-fat processed foods. It means if it is in a box, jar or can it was not going in my mouth. I also stopped using butter, olive oil and coconut oil - and replaced them with organic vegetable broth. Yes, mashed potatoes with vegetable broth is quite flavorful!

I started using Young Living's GLF oil blend, Citrus Fresh and Oregano essential oils in a capsule 3-4 times daily (5-6 drops each). I applied German Chamomile over my gallbladder area to help with the pain. I also drank 2-4 ounces of NingXia Red a day and a lot of water.

I was in quite a bit of discomfort for about two weeks and slept nearly 16 hours a day. But found after two weeks I felt considerably better. For me that was a positive sign and so I continued with my routine (above) for another month.

I took a break from using the essential oils in a capsule for a bit over a month because I felt it would be better to rest (much like one would do with any herbal treatment).

I never did get back into the groove I originally had in January & February. I have in the past month, July, begun eating a little bit of butter on my toast.

I have not completely gotten rid of the gallstones, due to my own slacking off - admittedly. But I do know I can and should get back on my original practice (above) to hopefully completely eradicate the stones.

I was warned by a nurse friend of mine and my doctor that a serious problem could result - a stone could exit my gallbladder and enter my liver, which would be a very serious condition indeed!

While I do not recommend this regimen for others I thought I should share what I did and what my results thus far have been.

Perhaps by years end, Dec. 2013, I will come back in and update this testimonial. Hopefully I will have more news to report.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: gallstones — "D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
2.Associated topics: gallbladder — "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
