of olive oil?
Q. I read on the Internet that the stones people passed during the liver cleanses are just hardened lumps of olive oil. Is there any truth to this?
A. There is an effort on behalf of certain well-known herbalists, doctors, and establishments to discredit the beneficial effects of the liver cleanse by stating that these gallstones are actually "soap stones" made of olive oil or are produced by the liver in response to the sudden ingestion of large quantities of olive oil. These individuals have their own reasons for making such statements, which is not for me to comment on. They have obviously never done a liver cleanse themselves. Otherwise they would realize what these stones are made of and what happens to their body when they release them.
Below are a number of responses to such claim:
1.*Olive oil does not assume the putrid smell that emanates from most released gallstones. The smell is unlike that produced by fecal matter.
2.*Olive oil cannot congeal into such relatively hard or dense structures, even if it were chemically altered and manipulated in a laboratory. This is even more impossible, given the short time frame the olive oil has to travel through the GI tract and the total unavailability of any thickening agents.
3.*Analysis of released gallstones reveals that the majority contain all the basic ingredients that make up bile fluid. Organic matter may also be present. Many of these stones consist of layers and layers of old, dark-green bile, something that does not happen overnight. The rest of the stones are the typical calcified gallstones found in the gallbladder. The dark-red or black bilirubin stones some people pass during their cleanses certainly cannot pass as olive oil "soap stones."
4. The olive oil mixture does not even go through the liver, as it would if it were combined with food. Therefore, during the liver cleanse, the liver does nothing but release gallstones and bile. Neither the liver nor the small intestine can act as a soap stone factory.
5. Once the liver and gallbladder are completely clean, no more gallstones are released after ingesting the oil/ citrus juice mixture. If these stones were indeed made from olive oil, they would also occur during a liver cleanse done after the liver has been completely cleansed and all bile ducts have been cleared and opened.
However, this is not the case. The liver cleanse produces no more stones once the liver i clean, regardless of how much olive oil one ingest. Besides, the olive oil consumed during liver cleanses does not always produce the same results. During one cleanse only 50 stones may come out, whereas during the next one, as many as 1,000 may be expelled.
6. Because of intolerance to olive oil, some people have used, for example, clear-colored macadamia nut oil during their cleanses and produced precisely the same green-colored stones. Cholesterol stones that exactly match these green stones can be found in the bile ducts of dissected livers.
7. If stones were just blobs of olive oil, why do so many people get cured from chronic illnesses such as asthma, allergies, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and even paralysis, after passing numerous "soap stones" during their liver cleanses?
8. Many people have released stones of different colors: black, red, green, white, yellow, and tan. Olive oil does not have coloring agents in it to produce stones of different colors.
9. People who have sent their stone in for chemical analysis have received reports that almost all the stones were made from cholesterol and salts. These constituents are identical to those in the cholesterol stones found in gallbladders that have been removed. A very small number of "stones" consisted of organic matter of unknown origin. These could easily have been trapped in the bile ducts along with the gallstones.
10. Quite a few individuals, including myself, have sometimes passed green cholesterol stones on the evening of the cleanse, even before taking the olive oil mixture. Others, who had already done several liver cleanses, have reported stones coming out during the apple juice phase, all without the help of olive oil. The stones that come out on their own have no different shape, color, and smell than the ones released during the actual cleanses.
11. It is conventional medicine, and not me, that proved the presence of cholesterol stones in the bile ducts of the liver. The medical term for these stones is "intrahepatic stones," or "biliary stones." These green stones, made of cholesterol and some bile constituents, are, in fact, oily and decompose when exposed to warmer air temperatures and oxygen. Cholesterol itself consist of about 96 percent water. (Anti-cholesterol drugs , in fact, is causing the body to work harder to overproduce cholesterol in the body chronic dehydration condition. In short, drugs kills the body natural survival mode while water re-balance and restore ,i.e., cure, the homeostatic condition ) These cholesterol stones are quickly broken down by destructive bacteria when released into the environment. This does not occur, however, while they trapped in the bile ducts of the liver.
12. Plenty of photographs taken of dissected livers are in the medical archives of university clinics that show the presence of these stones in the bile ducts of the liver.
13.It is a medically proven fact that millions of people regularly pass green sludge consisting of sometimes dozens of green cholesterol stones in response to eating a very fatty meal. These stones are not composed of the oils or fats that were ingested. They are forced out of the liver and gallbladder along with the expelled bile. Unfortunately, unlike during liver cleansing, some of the stones get caught in the common bile duct or even in the pancreatic duct. There is no difference between the stones that are released involuntarily and those passed voluntarily during a liver cleanse.
