  1. debating the exsistence of God and the validity or liver flushes are 2 totally separate things. I'd love to debate God with ya monkey, but apparantly this forum isnt for that.
  2. I quote:"" but I do my homework to make sure I know what I'm talking about before I talk about it. """ You mean you do your homework to be able to strengthen your already established point of view.
  3. http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelate.../spotquack.html ( interesting reading at #18, 19, 23, and 24) http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelate...s/hfreedom.html (hmmm, a prove me wrong attitude) http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/ploys.html (Im embarressed to admit that some claims fooled me) http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/signs.html (scroll down and read #1-7) Now, anyone wanna place bets on how long it takes for me to be banned from this site? Simpl
  4. Quackwatch Home Page Mission Statement Stephen Barrett, M.D. Quackwatch, Inc., which was a member of Consumer Federation of America from 1973 through 2003, is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to combat health-related frauds, myths, fads, and fallacies. Its primary focus is on quackery-related information that is difficult or impossible to get elsewhere. Founded by Dr. Stephen Barrett in 1969 as the Lehigh Valley Committee Against Health Fraud, it was incorporated in 1970. In 1997, it as
  5. Ok, something very very funny about Dr Weir. Did you know he actually promotes the use of LSD, and promotes "stoned thinking"? Oh my... And Denise, I would really encourage you to read the website I listed above. While some of the information that you post is very believable, it is totally contradicted on the website, which by the way is based on scientific FACTS. Doing a flush/cleanse will not boost the immune system. Not only is that questionable, it has been proven. Its junk science like thi
  6. I found a website that I thought I'd pass along, as it contains lots of information, some of it usefull. No doubt, some might find it mildly offensive as it calls into question the beliefs that many have formed. While I feel I havent slanted my views in either arena, I do believe people should be offered information from both sides of each argument, and then be allowed to make up their own minds. Happy reading. Interesting reading and a different point of view
  7. Ben, LOL...you dont have to tell me. Ive actually come across articles on websites claiming that liver flushes can cure Aids! Wow....if it were only so easy, huh? I also found a quote here (http://www.kitchendoctor.com/healthconditions/gallstones/gallbladder.html) saying that ER docs have a quota of surgeries to fill. Highly laughable and just not true. Sorting through the misleading and inflated claims is really difficult, and there are many. While I do think that there may be some basis to th
  8. Krista, Im going to have a look at the library for that book. It sounds as if it might have some interesting reading. I just wish I knew of how large the possibility of getting a stone stuck really was. Being offered information that "being struick by lightening, or getting into a car accident" does nothing to appease that question for me. If I stand out on a golf course, with a lightning rod pointed at the sky...my chances increase of that happening, but if I stay in the house during a lighten
  9. That makes perfect sense to me...the whole genetic pre-disposition line of thinking. So, in your opinion, could a person who has a predisposition towards acne (or other problems) still aquire the problem regardless of the state of their liver? I can apply some of this line of thinking to my own case as gallstones have been proven to have a heredity factor. Oddly enough, same goes with the female probs. My grandma had a hysterectomy for the same reason I did, in her 40's. My mom suffered the sam
  10. Denise: I have read *some* of the info on sensible health website, but not as much as I would like to. Its just a time issue. LOL...one computer, 4 kids who demand equal time from both me and the computer. Heehee..these days, while they are in school, with all the reading and typing im doing, hubby's convinced I want uis all to become nudists, cuz the laundry sure isnt getting done. You brought up an interesting point though, one that Im going to have a look at. My health history and the proba
  11. Another question, and I apologize in advance if I word it so it sounds bold or rude. Its truely not meant that way...Im just not as good as some with words. JC states that a healthy liver is vital to good skin. Im sitting here wondering why I have gallstones, I mean, my understanding is that they begin formation in the liver, leading me to believe that my liver is probably not at peak efficiency, (holy cow...never even mind the junk I poured into my body for years. I loved sugar and fat. I live
  12. Thanks Catwoman, Ive bookmarked it and will read it. Ive also done so much reading at curezone that my eyes are getting tired. Im finding that theres lots of information available, its just a matter of weeding through it all. Julie
  13. Amoira; The risk of surgery is something that I take very seriously, hence my reason for looking for possible alternatives. Im not scared of surgery itself....Ive had a few, and I based my decision on a quality of life issue. As an example I can offer this: 4 years ago I had a partial hysterectomy, at the age of 30. It took me many years to finally take this last resort step, and I had tried everything under the sun....but it still boiled down to a quality of life issue for me. I had tried dif
  14. Wow, now thats the stuff I was looking for. Krista, thankyou for the link you provided, re: Dr Weir. Ok, so after the reading a researching that Ive done, it seems that the complication I should worry about most is a stone becoming stuck in a duct. So, my next logical question was "How often does this happen, and what are the repercussions of this". So, I called my doc. Now, part of the problem is there are NO studies or data on how often stones become lodged due to liver flushing. Stones b
  15. DuMaurier, all those claims DO raise a flag for me. Im not saying that the claims dont have any basis at all, I was just looking for information on side effects or possible drawbacks. I apologize for ruffling anyones feathers due to posing my liver flush questions relating to gallbladder in an acne forum. I figured that if I was going to hunt for somewhat reliable information on flushes, it was best to explore all avenues, not just ask questions of people who are absolute supporters of liver c
