By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 0

Maybe you are considering a gallbladder cleanse, gallbladder flush or liver and kidney cleanse because you suspect you have gallstones. Here is a list of gallstone symptoms, if you relate to them then maybe you have gallstones. There are many cleanses you can do, based on a combination of apple juice, lemon juice and olive oil.

You can have gallstones for years and not know it. In fact they grow for a long time before they become a problem.

The gallbladder is situated on the right hand side under the last rib. Often people get mild pain around the gallbladder area for a while before a gallbladder attack.
