A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Cholecystitis
I had a question the other day about cholecystitis.
Cholecystitis is inflammation of your gallbladder, a small organ near your liver.
It plays a part in digesting food.
Normally, fluid called bile passes out of your gallbladder on its way to your small intestine.
If the flow of bile is blocked, it builds up inside your gallbladder, causing swelling, pain, and possible infection.
A gallstone stuck in your cystic duct, a tube carrying bile from your gallbladder, is most often the cause of sudden cholecystitis.
The gallstone blocks fluid from passing out of your gallbladder.
This results in an irritated and swollen gallbladder.
Infection or trauma can also cause cholecystitis.
The most common symptom of cholecystitis is pain in your upper right abdomen which can sometimes move around to your back or right shoulder blade.
Other symptoms include:
>Nausea or vomiting.
>Tenderness in your right abdomen.
>Pain that gets worse during a deep breath.
>Pain for more than 6 hours, especially after meals.
Older people may not have fever or pain.
Their only symptom may be a tender area in the abdomen.
Treatment for cholecystitis depends on your symptoms and your general health.
To deal with cholecystitis it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Alfalfa cleanses your liver and supplies necessary vitamins and minerals.
*Turmeric can reduce your risk of gallstone problems.
*Other beneficial herbs include barberry root bark, catnip, cramp bark, dandelion, fennel, ginger root, parsley, and wild yam.
*If you have pain, drink 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. This should relieve the pain quickly. If the pain doesn’t subside, go to the ER.
*For inflammation of the gallbladder, eat no solid food for a few days. Drink only purified water. Then drink juices like pear, beet, and apple for 3 days. Then add solid foods: shredded raw beets with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and freshly made uncooked applesauce made in a blender. Apple juice helps to soften gallstones.
*For gallstones, take 3 tablespoons of olive oil with the juice of a lemon before bed and upon awakening. Stones are often passed and eliminated in your stool with this technique. You can substitute grapefruit juice if desired.
*Put hot castor oil packs on your gallbladder area.
*Eat a diet consisting of 75% raw foods (organic when possible). Include in your diet applesauce, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, broiled fish, fresh apples, and beets.
*Eat protein from vegetable sources.
*To cleanse your system, drink as much pure apple juice as possible for 5 days. Add pear juice occasionally. Beet juice also cleanses your liver.
*Avoid sugar and products containing sugar. People who eat an excessive amount of sugar are much more likely to form gallstones.
*Avoid all animal fat and meat, saturated fats (found primarily in meat), full-fat dairy products, fried foods, spicy foods, margarine, soft drinks, commercial oils, chocolate, and refined carbohydrates.
*Don’t overeat. Obesity and gallbladder disease are related.
*Physical activity may reduce the risk of gallstones.
*Decrease or eliminate toxic exposures of all kinds (food and environmental).
