A 32-year-old member asked:
do those liver flush treatments work for gallstones or is it bogus?

Bogus: No evidence that a "liver flush" does anything beneficial for a person with gallstones.

Cruel scam: They produce weird bowel movements that the operator tells the victim are gallstones. When the symptoms recur or new gallstones are found, the operator tells you that you did something bad to make them come back.
