I was recently diagnosed with a gb full of stones. Surgeon recommends cholocystectomy chiropractor swears by the following home remedy:
-juice from 6 lemons
-3 Tbl (heaping) Epsom Salts
-3 tsp (level) cream of tartar
-1 quart H20
Drink 3 oz. of concoction every pm (for approximately 11 days)
chiro said that most people don't even finish the quart - and magic - no more stones (says works for kidney stones too).
Anybody ever heard of this tx or is it just hopeful thinking????

The problem with remedies like this, is people think they take the place of solid medical care from a qualified provider. In some cases, such things can cause more harm than good. I would never recommend people take on gallstones or gall bladder disease on their own. The consequences can be very, very grievous!!!
Having just been through two years of suffering due to my gallbladder, I can say with personal experience, these things don't generally work themselves out----if you ignore them too long, the problems can become huge and costly both to health and your wallet.
Please, like Siri said, see a doctor/health care provider if you suspect you have gallstones or gall bladder disease. Also, know, that not all gall bladder sx are due to stones, but can be the sequelae associated with anatomic problems, which no home remedy whatsoever will cure.
Nothing replaces seeking qualified medical advice from your own doctor---and a second opinion, even better.
