A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Gallbladder Disorders
I had a question the other day about gallbladder disorders.
The gallbladder is a 3″-4″-long pear-shaped organ located on the right side of your body, directly under your liver.
One of the functions of your liver is to remove poisonous substances from your blood so they can be expelled from your body.
Your liver excretes all these gathered toxins mixed with bile.
Bile also contains cholesterol, bile, salts, lecithin, and other things.
The bile – about 1 pint of it every day – goes first to your gallbladder, which holds it until food gets to your small intestine.
Your gallbladder then releases the bile, which passes through your cystic and bile ducts into your small intestine.
Ultimately, the toxins are passed out of your body through feces.
Abnormal concentration of bile acids, cholesterol, and phospholipids can cause formation of gallstones.
The presence of gallstones is known as cholelithiasis.
It’s been estimated over 25 million Americans have gallstones with almost 1 million new cases diagnosed each year.
As many as 1 in 10 people might have gallstones without knowing it.
However, if a stone is pushed out of your gallbladder and lodges in your bile duct, it can cause nausea, vomiting, and pain in your upper right abdominal region.
These symptoms often come about after you’ve eaten fried or fatty foods.
Gallstones can range from the size of a tiny grain of sand to larger than a pea-sized mass.
The presence of gallstones creates a possibility of cholecystitis (inflammation of your gallbladder) developing.
This can cause severe pain in the upper right abdomen and/or across the chest, possibly accompanied by fever, nausea, and vomiting.
Other symptoms of gallbladder disease include constant pain below the breastbone that shoots into the right or left shoulder area and radiates into the back.
The pain can last from 30 minutes to several hours.
Your urine may be tea- or coffee-colored, and you may have shaking, chills, and jaundice.
Gallbladder attacks often happen in the evening and can be sporadic.
A gallbladder attack may mimic a heart attack, with severe pain in your chest area.
Inflammation of your gallbladder requires immediate treatment.
If left untreated, it can be life-threatening.
To deal with gallbladder disorders it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Alfalfa cleanses your liver and supplies necessary vitamins and minerals. Twice a day for 2 days, take 1,000 mg in tablet or capsule form with a glass of warm water.
*If you have gallstones, or are prone to developing them, turmeric can reduce your risk of further problems.
*Other beneficial herbs include barberry root bark, catnip, cramp bark, dandelion, fennel, ginger root, parsley, and wild yam.
*If you have an attack, 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 your 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).
