Prevention is always better than cure. A change in lifestyle is heading toward the right direction in preventing gallstones in the liver and in the gallbladder.
A healthy liver needs regular detoxification.
Drink organic unsweetened apple juice daily for 2 to 3 consecutive days to initiate detoxification.
Eat a raw diet of only fruits and vegetables, with no dairy products, for 2 to 3 days.
Drink a mixture of organic pure olive oil (4 ounces) and equal amount of fresh squeezed lemon juice. Shake well and drink immediately before going to bed.
Drink ginger tea daily for liver and bowel cleansing: juice one lemon, a two-inch fresh ginger root, four cloves, and one stick of cinnamon; add juice to two cups of water in a saucepan; bring to boil, and simmer for 15 minute.
Colon cleansing is a must for a healthy digestive system.
Add one teaspoon of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) to one glass of water. Drink this first thing in the morning for up to three weeks. Do this treatment twice a year.
Alternatively, take one to three teaspoons of Castor oil in a glass of warm water. Drink it first thing in the morning or on an empty stomach before going to bed. Do this treatment on a regular basis, or as needed.
Check to see if you may have kidney stones by pulling the skin under your eyes sideways toward your cheekbones to see if there is any visible pimple or protrusion, or discoloration of the skin.
Fasting to detoxify

Drink enough water to maintain adequate bile production and bile consistency. More more than 8 glasses of pure water. Alcohol dehydrates. Avoid all sugary or energy-boosting drinks.
