Want to get rid of those gallstones in a hurry and avoid the need for surgery? Here's 5 of the most effective home remedies for dissolving gallstones you'll ever come across...


Good afternoon. I would like to know if there's any natural or home remedies for removing/passing gallstones that work within 24 hours? I'm in a lot of discomfort and need these things gone.
Thank you very much.


Hi Jhon, and thank you for your question regarding a natural way to dissolve/flush out gallstones.

Firstly, gallstones are thickened deposits that are basically made up of hardened cholesterol. These "stones" form in the gallbladder and range in size from a grain of sand to the size of a golf ball. In some cases they can be even bigger! Poor lifestyle choices and bad eating habits (especially too many unhealthy fats, fried foods, etc) are a major cause of gallstones. Obesity, diabetes, liver disease and pregnancy are other risk factors. Most people who have gallstones don't even know they have them until the pain and accompanying symptoms hit. Symptoms of gallstones include; sudden and severe onset of pain, particularly around the right side of the abdomen, back pain, bloating, indigestion, nausea or vomiting, and clay-colored feces.

Thankfully, there are a few tried and tested remedies and home treatments that work extremely well for breaking down and removing gallstones quickly. It's a good idea to try them all out to see which one works best for you.

Here they are in our order of importance...

Home Remedy for Gallstones #1... Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Apple Juice: This is the best (and easiest) remedy for dissolving gallstones. The malic acid in the apples helps to soften gallstones while the vinegar in the ACV stops the liver from making cholesterol (which is what causes gallstones to form in the gallbladder). Mix 2-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice (add some water if need be) and drink down. Do this three times daily on an empty stomach, 15-20 minutes before a meal and continue until all gallstones are gone. And if you want to keep your gallbladder healthy and keep gallstones away for good then it's simple, just continue to take this concoction twice a day every day for the rest of your life!

Now, you need to make sure the apple juice you use is 100% apple juice and the ACV is raw organic apple cider vinegar that still contains the crucial "mother" apple (extremely important). Bragg's ACV is definitely the best on the market if you can get it... Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

Natural Remedy for Gallstones #2... Lemon Juice: Lemons also stop your liver from producing cholesterol, plus they contain a substance called pectin, which binds to gallstones and helps to flush them from the body. Pectin also helps to lessen the pain associated with gallstones.

Drink a full glass of water with the juice of four freshly squeezed lemons twice daily. Adding 1/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda to the mix brings even faster relief due to its strong alkalizing properties. Do this for one week or until your gallstones are dissolved. In addition, it's also a good idea to drink the equivalent of 8-10 glasses of filtered water with a dash of lemon juice (or a slice of fresh lemon added) every day to prevent further gallstones from occurring.

Natural Treatment for Gallstones #3... Beetroot, Carrot, Celery, Ginger and Cucumber Juice: A great mix for preventing and treating gallstones. All of these juices are great for detoxifying and cleansing the gallbladder, liver and colon, along with purifying the blood. Get yourself a Nutribullet (or something similar) and mix up 1/2 beetroot, 1 celery stick, 1 medium sized carrot, 1/4 cucumber and 2 good sized slices of peeled ginger. Drink first thing in the morning for a powerful cleanse and detox.

Natural Cure for Gallstones #4... Milk Thistle: The milk thistle herb is not only terrific for eliminating gallstones quickly, it's also great for eliminating the pain and inflammation as well. Milk thistle taken every day, will also help to prevent gallstones from reoccurring as it stimulates bile production. It's an extremely healthy herb that you definitely should be having every day for overall good health and longevity!

Home Remedy for Gallstones #5... Flaxseed's: This is another super remedy for gallstones that goes to work very quickly. Simply add a couple of cinnamon sticks and three teaspoons of flaxseed's to two cups of boiling water and boil for 10 minutes. Cover the pot after and let it stand for around 15 minutes before drinking. Add some honey to taste and enjoy!

Finally, make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains and lay off the processed foods, fried foods and junk foods.

So get going and give these remedies a try Jhon. You'll be delighted with the results!

All the best to you,


Troy (Admin)

Side Effects?
by: Anonymous

I am concerned that taking what's recommended here on an empty stomach might cause ulcers or some kind of damage to the stomach. Please advise if taking the mixture after food would also do the job.

Nov 02, 2016
by: Troy (Admin)

None of these recommendations will cause ANY type of damage to the stomach, or internally as a whole, for that matter. They are all completely safe and will in actual fact help to heal your digestive system and help it to work better. However, if you are concerned then taking them after food would still be okay. Maybe do this for the first month and then switch to having them before food after this period.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck. :)

Large gallstones
by: Sandy

I've been told I have a really large gallstone along with other smaller ones. I'm worried that if it gets dislodged from the gallbladder that it may become stuck in the intestines if I use some of these suggestions for riding oneself of the stones. What do you think?

Dec 06, 2016
by: Troy

The apple cider vinegar with the mother and apple juice, along with the lemon juice, will break down the gallstone(s) so this wont happen. The beetroot, celery, carrot, ginger and cucumber drink will also help to safely break down and dissolve any gallstones. Be sure to use all 5 remedies in combination with each other (all together) for best results.

Good luck and all the best to you Sandy!

Apple Cider Vinegar on it's own?
by: Tania

Hi Troy,
Can the apple cider vinegar just be taken with water and/or lemon juice? So without the apple juice? I'm pre-diabetic and want to avoid sugar.

Jun 09, 2017
by: Troy

Yes, you sure can Tania. ACV and lemon juice still work very well. :)

Hi, will these work if gallstone is 1.5 cm big, along with small ones & inflammation is present?

Hi Troy, I'm having a gallstone at the minute. Can I drink apple cider vinegar with water? I don't have apple juice or lemon juice.

Yes, these will still work, however, it will take longer for the big gallstone to shrink so you will need to be patient.

All the best! :)

Yes, get the ACV into you as soon as you can! Make sure you continue to drink it and add the lemon juice/apple juice once you do have some. :)

Milk Thistle
by: Heidi

I have a Milk Thistle tincture. Will this work too instead of the capsules or tea? I also have Holy Basil Tea for liver detox. Can I add this as well? I just cant have surgery. I have had abdominal muscles cut out and have a large mesh covering my abdomen. There's no way they can operate safely. They are trying to tell me there is no way to clear my gallstones, only by surgery and I'm telling them they're wrong. I have an ultrasound coming up and I would love to get them cleared before I have it and prove to them it can be done. I really hate doctors and their constant push for surgery.

Jul 14, 2017
by: Troy

The milk thistle tincture is perfectly fine Heidi. Adding the holy basil tea is also a good idea and will compliment the milk thistle nicely. Don't forget to utilize the other remedies listed too, particularly the ACV and apple juice (along with the beetroot, carrot, celery, ginger and cucumber juice).

Good luck and all the best to you! :)

Gallstones treatment started
by: Chris

Thank you so much for your information! I have 3mm stones, 3 in total. I started this full natural treatment 2 days ago, my question is: how will I know when my gallstones are gone? dissolved? Only thru another ultrasound?

Aug 11, 2017
by: Troy

Yes Chris, an ultrasound is still the best way to find out if and when your gallstones have shrunk. :)

Saw palmetto and gallstones
by: Anonymous

Do you have any comments or advice about saw palmetto causing more gallstones? Or is it safe to take? Thanks!

Aug 21, 2017
by: Troy

Saw Palmetto does not cause gallstones. The only reason you would take saw palmetto is for shrinking an enlarged prostate (and it works extremely well for this). If you are suffering from both of these conditions you have nothing to fear by taking this herb. Just remember that saw palmetto does thin the blood so if you're currently taking any blood thinning medications, be sure to check with your doctor first. :)

Gallstones/Saw Palmetto
by: Chris

Thank you Troy, the reason of taking Saw Palmetto is because I'm a woman with Estrogen Dominance symptoms and I read its good to manage this. But because I have gallstones and I read it is not good for people with liver problems is why I asked. Thanks! :)

Questionable Doctors
by: DSM

Heidi, you're so right about these doctor's. The only remedy they know is surgery because it's more money for them. They need to keep you coming. What I have learned from the research I've done is surgery doesn't eliminate the problem, it creates more. They say aww don't worry, you don't need that organ, you can live without it. If that was the case it wouldn't be there in the first place. Anyway, I'm going to try these remedies so when I go for my CT scan the doctors will see that there are other ways. Good luck Heidi. Let's do this, cause I don't want the surgery either!

Aug 27, 2017

Yes, saw palmetto is good for treating estrogen dominance in women. It has never been proven to cause liver damage or gallstones either. This is nothing but a pure false theory. Don't buy into it. :)

Aug 28, 2017
by: Chris

Thank you Troy, I'll keep that in mind! How about calcium and collagen supplements? Do they help on the gallstones formation? I stopped all my supplements when I found out about my gallstones.

Have gallstone and Barrett's esophagus
by: Anonymous

Hi Troy, I have tried acv 2 times and I have Barrett's esophagus. Could you tell me if acv is safe to use with Barrett's esophagus? I did drink it straight without apple juice and it seemed to burn. Thank you.

Collagen is perfectly fine. With calcium, just be mindful of the type of calcium you take. Coral calcium is the best and safest if you can get it. Try and use the "Barefoot Coral Calcium Complete" brand for the extra strength and vitamin D content. :)

Try and drink the ACV with water rather than straight so it doesn't burn. Failing this, go with the ACV capsules instead as these do not burn.

All the best!

Substitute for lemon juice?
by: Sia

Hi! My mom is allergic to lemons. After drinking lemon juice she started having cough problems. Please suggest an alternative to the lemon juice. Her diet is normal, she drinks plenty of water daily and is very active.

Nov 03, 2017

Go with the apple cider vinegar and apple juice instead Sia (along with the other remedies listed). This combo works extremely well.

All the best!

Limes in place of lemons?

Is it possible to use limes instead of lemons?

Yes, there's virtually no difference (nutritionally) between lemons and limes. :)
