My mom 68 yo. Is olive oil n lemon juice for flushing the gallstone could work for her ?

No

Nothing has been found to dissolve gallstones. If she doesn't have gallbladder symptoms leave the gallbladder alone. If she has symptoms, the gallbladder should be removed if she is otherwise healthy.

Is it effective to remove gallstone using the method, of apple juice, epsom salt, and olive oil with lemon.

Wives tale

Fruit_juice
Olive oil will provoke the gallbladder, and could challenge the possible passage of stones, depending on their size. No drug will be of help. Stones come from a diseased/dysfunctional gallbladder, and with time bring symptoms. You won't fix your gallbladder with this concoction. Avoid fats and oils, and consult a surgeon, sooner than in the (lat)ER.

Person diagnosed with gallstones,is it safe to try Epsom salt,apple juice,olive oil,and lemon juice cleanse?nutritionist gave this recipe.

Safe but won't work

Cholelithiasis
This is an attempted cure but is really quackery. There is absolutely no proof that this works at all. People will believe they are seeing stones in their stool but this is not true. Regardless, it is safe to try this but it won't work.

Person with gallstones,can she eat grapefruit, tea, pumpkin seed, walnut, almond, brazilian nuts, cashew, avocado, olive oil, grapeseed oil?

Sure

Cholelithiasis
Eat anything you want as long as it doesn't cause symptoms. If some foods disagree with you (ex. fatty foods can sometimes cause pain in patients with gallstones) then avoid them.

Dr. Edward Schmidt answered:

Is gallstone cleanse effective so to avoid surgery? It is a type of diet where u eat 4x apple juice w/ olive oil and epsom salt for 6 days.

May not be.

Surgery
Gallbladder (GB) surgery is usually proposed for a poorly functioning GB, ie: lowered ejection fraction, associated with abdomen RUQ pain. A GB "cleanse" may not make any difference; but one could try and see if it works for you.

My husband tried the olive oil & lemonjuice flush treatment.but theres still pain.can u prescribe medicines that dissolves gallstones?he's 34, 83kg.

Health fraud

Pain
Your husband was deceived by a phony remedy that produces weird bowel movements that the operators tell the victim are gallstones. Of course it didn't work. I'm glad he has a sensible wife like yourself. You're not going to dissolve gallstones taking stuff by mouth. If they need attention -- and many don't -- get with your physician and/or a good surgeon.

Can olive oil cause acne?

No

Acne
The connection between oily food and acne has not held up. Olive oil is ok. From WebMD: "Food: All over the world, parents tell teens to avoid pizza, chocolate, greasy and fried foods, and junk food. While these foods may not be good for overall health, they don't cause acne or make it worse."

Why is olive oil healthy?

Olive oil

Cholesterol
Olive oil like canola oil is a monounsatured fat and these have been shown to lower cholesterol. These are considered to be healthy fats and so can be eaten regularly.

Can olive oil cure dandruff?

NO

Head-scalp
OLIVE OIL MAY MAKE THE DANDRUFF WORSE! DANDRUFF CAN BE CURED BY SHAMPOOING OFTEN. (DAILY IF POSSIBLE) AND WITH A TAR SHAMPOO SUCH AS T-GEL OR TARSUM OR HEAD & SHOULDERS (ALL ARE OVER THE COUNTER). I HAVE NO FINANCIAL INTEREST IN THESE.

Is it ok to drink olive oil?

Olive oil

Yes but most of us don't like the taste in large amounts. Try putting extra virgin olive oil on your salds with a little vinegar.
