Her symptoms are: painful belly, irregular stools, vomiting bile.  The doctor thinks she has inflamed gallblader and recomended following diet which has settled the symptoms quite a bit:

eat only cooked vegies and fruit (like cooked apples, pears, etc), no red meats, only poultry like chicken, turkey and yogurt.  She (like DH) loves milk and drinks a lot of it, since doc did not say anything about it, but I advice to go slowly on it, remembering from this forum that there are not many blood groups where milk features as a medicine, it is usually avoids!!  She started with these symptoms early December and it has been better in the last week with the change in diet!!

The advice above sounds good.  Anything else anyone wants to add?

She does not know her blood group yet, but it has ordered it.  Blood group tests get done on 6 jan and results a few days later. She is 59 years old and a bit overweight!!
Anything else she should be trying in the meantime as a general advice?

My mother had her gallbladder out a few years ago. Before that happened, she'd experience pain/irregular stool/etc every time she ate anything with a high fat content. The bad news was, every time she felt those effects it meant her gallbladder was damaged a little more...

Based on that experience, it sounds like you might be on the right track here!

No idea on the milk--my dairy allergy meant there was rarely any milk in the house anyway, so I can't say how my mother's stomach would have reacted to it--but if she wants it I'd recommend she go with skim, just based on the fat-content stuff.

Good luck, and keep us posted....

Hi Cristina, sorry to hear about your friend.  I've been there and it can get pretty horrible. (2007-200  Hot water with juice of 1 lemon first thing in the morning is good for the liver (what's good for the liver is good for the gallbladder).  A walk first thing in the morning too, as it gets things moving thru the liver & gallbladder that have been stagnant thru the night.  Unfiltered apple juice at room temperature ( the liver doesn't like cold) is good, and though I know it's an avoid for me it did help while I was having all my attacks.  The naturepath suggested that I take magnesium citrate 3x a day to keep things relaxed to help avoid an attack.  I took extra at bedtime too, because alot of my attacks often happened in the middle of the night.  I changed my eating habits, focusing on liver heath as long as it was blood type compliant (except the apple juice).
I hadn't been as compliant as I should have been when this all started happening to me.  I looked up alot of information on the internet pertaining to gallbladder & liver and took various herbs and teas that were good for the liver.  A hot water bottle over the liver when there's pain helped too.     Everyones body reacts differently with our health issues and everyone has their way dealing with it too, but these are a few of the things that I did.  Maybe some of them will help.  They wanted to take my gallbladder out but I wanted to keep it.  Worked on it for about 8 months which made my health better overall, (still had major attacks during that time but felt really good in between them ) but in the end I still had to have it out.  Hope she can avoid all of that.

Yes, to C-Sharps suggestion.  How could I have forgotten.  In that 8 months I did 13 gallbladder - liver cleanses.  I did 3 full days of fasting with the unfiltered apple juice and the olive oil & lemon juice (but in larger amounts) on the 3rd night.  I didn't do the castor oil pack (though I looked it up & thought seriously about it), but I did use the hot water bottle over the liver that night when I went to bed.  I did pass alot of green "blobs" the next day & even into the next morning.  I also did an epsom salts drink in intervals the afternoon / evening leading up to the oil & lemon juice.  There's pros & cons to doing that, but that's what I decided.  The suggestion on page 252 is milder, but may very well be all she needs.

I've had gall bladder problems in the past. I get cramps, diarrhoea, shivering etc. A GP who's a family friend suggested the following when I asked him about a natural solution:

4 days of only fruit, vegetables and water
day 5: eat normal breakfast and lunch. Don't purposely avoid any foods. Don't eat after 5 pm that
          day
          at 5pm mix a level table spoon of epsom salt in a 150ml of lukewarm water and drink
          at 7pm repeat the epsom salt in lukewarm water
          at 9pm drink 125ml of olive oil.

(The epsom salt mix is vile but the olive oil went down OK)

He said I would probably feel 'not too good' after that (an understatement!). I spent a long time in the bathroom the next morning but by evening I felt better and was back to normal the next morning. I haven't had any problems since. That was nearly 2 years ago.
