Herbal Gallstone Blend

I'm posting this because my best friend is suffering from gallstone problems and it's on my mind; not to mention the fact that it also contains dandelion (I'll stop obsessing shortly, promise), which induces the flow of bile and gastric juice and stimulates the gall bladder, bladder, kidneys, liver, spleen and pancreas. Dandelion is also a valuable nourishing and natural internal cleanser due to its high sulfur content and helps to eliminate urea and uric acid.

Moving right along ...

Hopefully you won't need it, but in case you do:

1 oz Dandelion root
1 oz Parsley root
1 oz Lemon Balm leaves
1/2 oz Ginger root
1/2 oz Licorice root

Place all roots except the ginger in 2 pints of clean water. Simmer, well covered for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the Lemon Balm and Ginger root, cover, and steep for 20 minutes. Drink 1/2 cup every 2 hours as needed.

Please note: Do not use dandelion root if you have blocked bile ducts, gallbladder inflammation or intestinal blockage. (Botanical Safety Handbook, American Herbal Products Association, 1997: 114)
