Problems after liver/gallbladder flush

Ask Dr. Saputo Blog

Hello, dr. Saputo

I did a liver/gallbladder flush 1 month ago with 1/2 cup of olive oil, lemon juice and epsom salts. Ever since then I've been having bitter taste in my mouth, indigestion, acid reflux and light coloured stool. Does it mean I have a stone stuck in my ducts? I sometimes get a little pain in my gallbladder area although for a few days after the flush I had pain in my pancreas as well. I don't know what to do. I am terrified of doing another flush. I've read about one person who had her health ruined by doing 2 liver flushes. She basically can't eat anything right now and is experiencing IBD. Could I be having spasms in my ducts from bile sludge or do I have a stone stuck in my ducts? What can I do besides flushing?

Thanks in advance

What you need is a qualified healthcare practitioner to evaluate your health issues. If you had a stone lodged in the duct system chances are you'd have very severe pain and feel quite ill. Why not consider having an ultrasound of the gallbladder?

I hope this helps!
