if so, how did it go?  I am going to do one this weekend.  I have been nauseaus every morning since the birth of my 2nd child, 16 years ago!!  Dr.'s could never figure out anything wrong, blood work, always good.

About 3 weeks ago, my husband was telling someone about this (herbologist) and they said it sounded like my gall bladder.  Eating greasy food, or red meats, the night before will make you sick in the morning.  Also, the pain in front under the rib cage, radiating around to the back.

Well, I decided before I go to the Dr. and they tell me that they want to take it out, I would try the call bladder cleanse that is on drclark.net I am hoping this solves my problem.  I have since met 2 people that have done this cleanse, and they say it worked for them.  Anyone else ever try this?

Nausea can also be a sign of Candida.  If you have been bothered by other troublesome symptoms such as pain or swelling of your joints, nasal congestion, recurrent sore throats, pain in your chest, blurred vision, or just feeling "lousy,"  you may have Candida.  Might be worth you time looking into it!   Good luck to you!

I was constantly nauseous until I had my gall bladder removed. Instant fix....well, not instant...had to recover from the laparoscopic.

gr8ful, have you read up on how the gallbladder works? Do you understand how the cleanse works? Are there any peer-reviewed studies that show it works?

The thing is, I've tried a handful of herbal remedies and only one works for me. Echinacea really does reduce the length and severity of common colds, and viruses. In fact is it helping me get over influenza right now. I wasted my money on all the other remedies.

Just because they are natural doesn't mean they work, or they are good for you. Lead is natural, but it brought down the Roman Empire. Arsenic is natural, and we all know that is poisonous. Mercury is natural as is uranium, plutonium.

Just my opinion.

p.s. I know what it's like to have a rare, untreatable, incurable disease. I went through it too. PM me if interested.

Oh, Chuck ~ you have had the flu?  I don't think you were a member when I was exhorting everyone to get a flu shot!!  That topic really stirred up a hornets nest!  But I feel like I made some head-way and convinced at least a few people to get their flu shot.  Sorry I didn't get a chance to have a go at you!  :)  My problem is I am an RN, and feel very, very strongly that everyone who can, should get a flu shot each year.  So that was my soapbox issue the end of October, beginning of November.

Glad to see you are responding to some of these topics here.  Welcome!
