The Demand for Gallbladder Non-Surgical and Natural Treatment Options Is on the Rise
As the number of North Americans with gallbladder disease grows each year, the demand for non-surgical and natural treatment options is also on the rise. There was a time when millions of people would accept that cholecystectomy- gallbladder removal surgery- was inevitable and necessary, but today, many more realize that with diet and lifestyle changes, and safe nutritional extracts, modern health science shows us how to undergo gallbladder treatment without the risks of surgery.
How Is Your Gallbladder Supposed to Function?
People suffering gallbladder attacks are often told that their gallbladder is an unnecessary organ and removing it has no negative effect whatsoever. They are also told that gallstones can’t be removed completely without surgery. This is only partly true because the reality is that gallbladder surgery doesn’t eliminate gallstones completely or prevent them returning. The same health and physiological factors that caused them before, remain and lead to stones elsewhere in the biliary system. As well, the gallbladder’s role as a storage tank is quite essential not only to fat digestion but intestinal health. Concentrated, high volumes of bile are needed to digest high fat meals so the gallbladder releases the precise amount required. The rest of the time, when not digesting, no bile enters the empty intestines.
When a gallbladder is removed, a steady trickle of diluted bile will then enter the intestines at all times. It is no longer strong enough to effectively digest high fat meals, and the steady irritation of bile on intestinal lining can lead to chronic diarrhea.
You may be able to avoid the need for gallbladder surgery if you act early. To continually flush out small stones, debris and sludge, increasing the secretion of bile by the liver is a great place to start. If you want to know how to do a gallbladder treatment in your own home, try these fruits and vegetables:
Organic Apple Juice and Apple Cider Vinegar
This remedy has been effective and promoted for years as one of the fasted ways to stop a gallbladder attack. Mix a few tablespoons of ACV into a glass of organic apple juice and sip as long as you experience pain. The malic acid in apples is believed to soften and dissolve gallstones. The ACV helps to increase bile and digestive juices, so the blockage can be cleared and flushed away.
Another healthy change to make both during an attack and in the long run, is to remove excessive fat, fried food, saturated, hydrogenated and trans fats from your diet. These are very hard to digest, requiring the gallbladder to work hard, leading to more discomfort and indigestion if the gallbladder is not functioning well. Instead, replace your dietary fat with healthy options like coconut oil, flax oil, extra virgin olive oil and wild fish oil. Small amounts of grass fed dairy may be ok but if you have active gallbladder attacks, stop completely then introduce dairy slowly.
