Its the fats in the oil that stimulate the gallbladder to extract the stones in this process. The epsom salt and acidic juices (lemon, lime or grapefruit) dialate the ducts so that the stones can pass.
Changing your diet keeps the stones in there and makes it so the your diet doesnt "irritate" the gallbladder.
The Fats/oils in food triggers the release of bile from the gall bladder so it can be digested and can cause a stone to get lodged causing pain. If the ducts are dialated large enough then the stones can pass. This is the info i have been reading on for 2 days now, nonstop. It makes !!!
