About eight months ago, I was diagnosed with gall stones in my gall bladder. I was told the reason for this is probably because I take so many medications for epilepsy. I was immediately told that I needed to have the gall bladder removed. I was specifically told the sooner I had surgery, the better.
But this brought back memories from 1999 when I was originally diagnosed with epilepsy after having two grand-mal seizures. When the doctors at Henry Ford Hospital in Michigan saw the MRI, they specifically said “Here you see the tumor that is causing the seizures and it needs to be removed very quickly.” But I didn’t want to have a major surgery like that without a second opinion.
Part of the reason why I didn’t want to have that surgery without a second opinion is because the doctors told me there was a very good chance I would lose the ability to speak or lose my memory due to the fact that the surgery would be taking place on the left temporal lobe of my brain. The other reason is because I had a bad feeling that these doctors were in it only for the money. I’m not kidding, many of these doctors involved in neurology had a grin on their face the moment they thought there was an opportunity for the high-cost brain surgery.
Thankfully, when I went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, I was told not to have any form of surgery. In fact, when the University of Michigan did an MRI, they said there never was any form of tumor on my brain! I was told the doctors at Henry Ford hospitals should not have given me that type of false information. I was told the image on the MRI was some form of irritation and inflammation, not a tumor – since tumors do not disappear.
But now I am in a similar position with my gall bladder. I saw a look of “profit” on the doctors faces every time I asked if I should have my gall bladder removed. The doctors never hesitated to say “You need to have your gall bladder removed because the ultrasound shows you have gall stones.” Each time I would ask if it was possible to pass the gall stones using custom-designed diets, the doctors instantly said “You can’t pass gall stones.”
The reason why I’m questioning whether or not this is true is because I know two people who claim to have passed gall stones using a custom diet. One person is a social worker who told me she saw the gall stones in an ultrasound test when she was originally diagnosed. This woman said the gall stones were constantly hurting her at all times, until she eventually completed a custom recipe designed to pass gall stones.
But when I asked this woman if she ever had an ultrasound test to verify that she had passed the stones, she said “No, I didn’t need one because I don’t feel the pain anymore.” I didn’t want to discourage her, so I didn’t bother telling her the stones could still be inside her gall bladder. I once went eight months without a gall bladder attack, but the problem still existed. Thus, I believe this woman’s claims cannot be verified.
But today a neighbor came to visit my family for the first time in years. She said that several years ago she was diagnosed with gall stones, as proven with an ultrasound test. But this neighbor told me that she completed some form of custom recipe program involving asparagus and several other ingredients. I then asked her if an ultrasound test confirmed the stones were no longer in her gall bladder. I was very pleased to hear her tell me “Yes, I had excellent insurance and I wanted to know for sure. When I got that second ultrasound, none of the gall stones were there anymore; they had all been passed.”
With that in mind, I would appreciate it if any of you could offer some help or advice in this controversial area. I know some of the recipes and diet programs out there claim they can heal you of anything, but in reality the only thing they are going to do is make your wallet smaller. I don’t want to have my gall bladder removed if there is a way to pass the gall stones manually. I have an appointment with a doctor only two days from now, so please leave a comment quickly.
If you have experience in the area of gall stones or kidney stones, please share your thoughts. I was told it is possible to pass kidney stones in a way that is incredibly painful. However, I was told by the doctors that gall bladder stones cannot be passed. I was told that “sludge” in the gall bladder can be passed, but not the true gall stones.
The most annoying thing is that doctors don’t even try to filter the gall bladder or clean out the stones, even though the technology may exist to do such a thing. Instead, the greedy doctors just want to remove your gall bladder in a quick, easy, and efficient one-day operation. After all, this is the type of low-cost and high-profit operation that helps generate a lot of money for the medical industry.
