Drinking Olive Oil to Remove Gall Stones (Closed-Captioned)

In 2004, while I was living in East Asia, our friend Shelly found a home remedy to remove gallstones.  After doing a pure juice fast for a day, drink a cup of olive oil, wash it down with lemon juice, and the next morning you'll poop the stones out.   He swore by its super effectiveness so I decided to give it a try. The next morning I definitely pooped something out that was different from normal.. maybe I should've kept them and gotten them checked by a real doctor to see if they were actually gallstones or not.  Can't remember if I took pictures or not.


*update* apparently this remedy is just a bunch of crock

PS--I'm trying out YouTube's closed-captioning feature so click CC in the bottom right-hand corner of the video to turn on subtitles (if you don't see the CC button, click the "Watch on YouTube" button on the video and look for it on the YouTube page).  If you want to see the completely incorrect, automatically machine-generated subtitles by YouTube, mouse over the CC and select "English (Canada) - Machine Translated." (Sorry Canadian friends, just had to pick a different track to stick the machine translated subtitles onto)
