HAARLEM, NETHERLANDS. Dr. R. Dekkers a Dutch medical doctor and chemical
engineer describes a novel method of removing gallstones. His wife apparently tried it
with good results. She drank one liter of apple juice daily for six days and on the 7th day
she drank a cup of olive oil just before going to bed. She lay on the left side during the
night and the next morning found soft gallstones in the stool. The stones were recognized
at the university hospital as fatty gallstones. Dr. Dekkers suggests that the stones can be
more easily collected if an oral dose of magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) is taken at noon
on the 7th day and the evening meal is skipped.
