Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Taco Dinner

I have to tell you the coolest thing I have heard in a very long time! But, if you are eating right now I’d certainly stop…immediately. So, I have this “friend” and she was experiencing sharp stomach pains on and off for awhile. My friend, okay fine, it is my mom! Anyways, instead of going to the conventional doctor’s office for her pain she decided to visit her chiropractor instead. That’s how my family works. We go to the chiropractor for basically anything because we want our symptoms fixed and gone, we don’t want them masked by drugs. We go for colds, aches and pains, sprained ankles, and even for my sports induced asthma. I can go on and on of why a chiropractor is all you need for health and body issues, but that is a different discussion to be had on a different day.

Back to my mom and her stomach pains. The chiropractor thought she may have gallstones and gave her a 1-day cleanse to get rid of them. This cleanse consisted of water, Epson salt, olive oil and a grapefruit. That is it. The basis of the cleanse was to clean out her liver where gallstones actually develop (bet you thought it was the gallbladder) and get the gallstones out of her body. After a short fast she had to consume a certain amount of servings of water and Epson salt and olive oil with juice from the grapefruit. There were also instructions of lying down at certain times of the day/night and go to the bathroom when needed and as long as needed. Again, if you are eating here is where I would stop. When my mom was telling me this story I was thinking that she would pee them out like kidney stones, but nope. Gallstones are pooped out! The cleanse is to determine if you have kidney stones and to rid the stones. In order to know if any came out, your poo can’t exactly be solid…. yep you pretty much have diarrhea for an entire day pooping out a crap ton of stones. Pun intended, man I am funny! And sure shit (another pun!) she had gallstones! She said she popped out probably 30 of the damn buggers. I asked her if she saved any and unfortunately she didn’t…sorry no pics!

Not only was she gallstone free within a day, she also spent probably a maximum of $5.00 versus a bajillion dollars getting surgery. Is that not a cool story or what! It goes to show that the conventional doctor’s office isn’t always the safest bet. I have a copy of the complete cleanse along with the step by step instructions. If this is something you need or would like to look into further, shoot me over an email at kissbybrooke@gmail.com and I can get you a copy.

Hopefully I didn’t ruin your appetite too much talking about my mom on the shitter, but these tacos are delish!
