No, I'm serious!  It's okay to stand on your head!    

Just not somebody else's head.

Ron, I'm getting this mental image of you standing on your head, shaking your body and telling your gallbladder to stand and deliver!
Hahahahahaha... Yep!  Where my body is concerned, I am Jaime Escalante.



...or maybe I'm General Patton!

Ron, add some bearded seal to your diet and see if it helps.

Bearded seals?  

They've always been cute, but now... they're also tasty!

I believe that lying on the right side is to help draw stuff we want moved down the digestive tract. The gallbladder has its own muscle structure, I think, because it squirts out bile as needed. It's my understanding that some of the pains occur because the duct is squeezing but blocked to one extent or another.
When I've had gallbladder issues, lying on my left side was just not an option, it made me feel too sick, so I was always more comfortable on my right. Also, (upper) digestion is supposed to be faster & more efficient if you lie on your right.
Just my 2 cents....
I used to be able to do a yoga headstand...haven't tried lately!
Good luck, Ron!

There can be various types of stones in the gallbladder and the biggest danger of the flush is that some medium-sized stones get lodged in the duct, which is an emergency.  

Large stones are too large to ever pass through the duct and therefore will remain in the gallbladder (usually causing no symptoms) or over time may be broken down until they dissolve or are small enough.  Small stones and sand can be expelled via the normal function of the gallbladder, which has smooth muscle that is stimulated to contract when we eat something with fat.  The small stones get ejected in the bile and eliminated via the colon.

Therefore, lying on your right side minimizes the danger of dislodging stones that may lodge in the duct but still allows the passage of small stones and sand, which is the objective of the flush.

BTW, this is the site with all the details of the gallbladder flush and there are lots of FAQs there.  You can also contact Julia with questions.

Sometimes there are reasons for instructions even if we don't understand them.  In this case, Julia is very thorough and has many years of experience with this flush and with TCM in general and therefore I would highly doubt the instructions to lie on your right side are a typo.  And since she is available as a resource, I would just go ahead and confirm with her.

Now that is a logical explanation!

That's what I'm talking about!  Three cheers for Dr. Whimster!

True... but I have this one little personality glitch.  And I'm sure some might argue that I have more than one.

I'll check her page out, but I don't think her page was what I had originally consulted.
