Gallbladder Gallstone Flush with Coconut Oil, Garlic, and Grapefruit Juice

As you’ve probably seen on this blog, I’ve tried several gallbladder and gallstone flushes over the years. With so many followers, I now use myself as a guinea pig for new flush recipes. It’s been six months or so since I did my last flush and I was again starting to feel a slight ache and tightness in my gallbladder area. I’ve been reading a lot about the beneficial aspects of coconut oil…and that it tastes better than olive oil. (I can barely smell olive oil without feeling nauseous from all of the flushes I’ve done with it.)

I tried a new mini-flush this morning…here’s what I did:Coconut Oil, Grapefruit Juice, Garlic, and Apple Juice Gallstone Flush

  • Waited until about 10:30am to do the flush. I hadn’t eaten since last night and was pretty hungry. I did have a couple of glasses of water this morning. Waiting as long as possible allows bile to fill up your gallbladder.
  • Gathered the ingredients:
    • 1/2 cup of apple juice
    • 1/4 cup of coconut oil (warmed it up so that it was pourable)
    • 1/2 of a grapefruit
    • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic
  • Poured them all into a glass, squeezed the grapefruit juice in, and mixed them all together.
  • Took a picture for you! While it kind of looks like a glass of beer, it certainly is not. If only I had been so lucky.
  • Realized that the cold apple juice hardened the coconut oil. So I microwaved everthing for 20 seconds. (It probably would be best to stick the glass in a pan of hot water, but I wanted to keep things moving this morning.)
  • Gulped it all down and laid on my right side for 20 minutes with my legs pulled to my chest.

Analysis of the flush: Well, this one was different. The coconut oil tasted much better (compared to olive oil), but the garlic didn’t really help the flavor. I felt a little nausea after drinking it, but, again, not as much nausea as with my usual olive oil-Coke or olive oil-grapefruit mini-flushes. But, the good news is that I feel great. I have a clearer head than I’ve had for a while, and at least for now the tightness and pain in my gallbladder region (right side of the body, right behind your lowest ribs) has gone away.

    How many times are you supposed to do this?

  2. Gallbladder Help Admin says:

    Hi Liza, if you haven’t done flushes before, it’s good to do one. Then, wait about a month to do another. I do a flush any time I start to get tightness or pain in my gallbladder region. For me, this is about every 6-9 months. Hope this helps and keep us posted on how it goes!

    This sounds safe enough. I’m pregnant and looking for safe recipes and foods for my numerous gallstones. What do you believe to be the safest things I can do to help my gallstones? They are backing bile into my stomach, which is causing excessive throwing up and nausea.

  4. Gallbladder Help Admin says:

    Hi Sarah, the safest thing you can do for your gallstones is to eat properly. Check out our posts on healthy gallbladder diets. In sum, avoid fat, eat lots of vegetables and the following foods: radishes, artichokes, apples, cucumber, and a tad of turmeric. I hope this helps! – Chaz

  5. Lemon olive oil liver-gallbladder flush can be done in a variety of ways from mild to wild.

    How long do you wait to eat after you do this flush?

  7. Gallbladder Help Admin says:

    Hi Liza, you know, I usually wait an hour or so after the flush if I’m starving. A lot of folks recommend eating easily cooked vegetables, etc after a flush; but, honestly, I eat whatever sounds good. Sometimes, later in the day, you’ll notice your gallbladder feeling a little sore. I think this is great and demonstrates that it just had a workout contracting out all of the junk!

    So, true, Frankie! What’s your favorite and most effective way to make a gallbladder flush concoction?

    So happy I found your information. Along with purchasing the Gallbladder Cookbook online, your recipe for the flush was just what the doctor ordered :) I am now on the right track to avoid getting gallbladder surgery. Thanks so much.

    Trying your flush today. This will be my first.

    Did the flush and so far so good. Gallbladder is working overtime

  12. Gallbladder Help Admin says:

    Awesome, Ralph! I hope it works as well for you as it did for me…

  13. Ralph says:

    Not to bad a taste. Not certain if I got rid of any gallstones though. Two days later and I’m still feeling a bit bloated. Thinking I should have an MRI

    Hey Ralph, keep us posted. For me, I had to do a few flushes to get cleaned out. Now, I do them every 3 months or so. Keep us posted!
