Fast Gallbladder Pain Relief – Try This 15 Minute Trick
Millions of people suffer from the severe, aching gallbladder pain known as biliary colic, each day. If you’ve ever been gripped with a gallbladder attack, then you know that people will do just about anything to make the discomfort go away and prevent its return.
Unfortunately, laparoscopic surgery to remove the gallbladder has been presented as an easy option with no side effects in North America. The most commonly performed surgery in the US today cuts the gallbladder out to remove the stones that have formed within it. Western medicine commonly suggests that the gallbladder is unnecessary and therefore its removal has no consequence, however, this is only partly true.
Certainly, many people will show up to the ER with their first, severe gallbladder attack and be advised to promptly remove the offending organ but knowing that there are alternative ways to ease gallbladder pain before it becomes so severe, is helpful.
Not only are there simple tricks you can use at home to relieve discomfort, but natural remedies used to soften gallstones and ease gallbladder inflammation are also useful for long term health and function of the liver and digestive system.
Biliary colic can be described as some of the worst pain a person experiences in their life. Luckily, small stones that block bile ducts usually pass on their own and the pain lasts from 15-30 minutes to a couple hours, however, depending on the size and location of a gallstone blockage, a person may experience protracted pain lasting several hours. This is unrelieved by change in position, eating, bowel movements or vomiting. The sensation can travel nerve paths and radiate to the back, chest and right shoulder.
On the rare occasion that gallbladder pain is accompanied by fever, chills and continual vomiting, medical attention is advised, however you’ll be happy to learn that attacks can be eased in as little as 15 minutes at home, using simple ingredients most people have on hand.
Cleansing has now become a popular gallstone treatment. Here are a few ways to cleanse:
One such remedy involves lemon juice, the other, raw apple cider vinegar. Both work in similar ways.
Take 3-4 tablespoons of raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar and mix with 8 ounces of organic apple juice, pear juice, or water.
Drink the mixture at room temperature, slowly over a span of 15 minutes. The taste of ACV can be quite strong but it works powerfully to reduce pain nearly instantly. You can repeat this every hour if needed while experiencing pain.
The juice of fresh, organic lemon can be added to a small glass of water, roughly 3-4 teaspoons. Sip the sour mixture when experiencing and attack for nearly instant relief.
The reasons these can be effective is that malic acid has been shown to be able to break down and soften gallstones while thinning the bile to reduce sludge. Lemon and acidic apple cider vinegar also increase bile output which aids in flushing away stones.
In lower concentrations, these ingredients can be added to your daily gallbladder-friendly diet to help keep the gallbladder in great overall health.
