I suspect some of these are sadistic hoaxes. You do not need to cleanse your liver. Get with an honest, evidence-based holistic practitioner as a guide. ...Read more

Gallbladder removal--cholecystectomy--remains the gold standard for treating gallbladder disease. ...Read more

Stones vs GERD: Gallstones are hard materia made of bile from gallbladder. They live in gallbladder until they are squeezed into the small intestine. Sometimes that squeezing hurts and blocks up. Acid reflux is stomach contents mixed with stomach acid go into esophagus. This has very little do do with the gallbladder except that both issues cause pain after eating sometimes and can be confused. ...Read more
Oral dissolution: For gallstones is not very successful in general. This medication is only effective for gallstones with specific composition and size. It can cause liver damage. It also takes a long time for stones to dissolve. And they can re-form even after complete dissolution.

Reflux: It's true that the discomfort of reflux occurs in the esophageal area (chest) especially in the reclining position. In my experience gastric ulcers often have atypical symptoms and it could be causing your distress or perhaps reflux is being felt in the lower esophagus near the stomach junction.
