Preventing Gallbladder Pain And Gallstones With Everyday Foods
Gallbladder pain occur when blockages occur in the cystic duct of the gallbladder, which excretes bile into the small intestine to aid with the digestion of foods. When certain tissues are pressed by a solidified mass (gallstone), sharp pain is felt. Blockages impair the digestive process and can be very painful. Gallstones can cause stomach pain, indigestion, loss of appetite, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever and even jaundice. Sometimes the pain associated with gallstones is so severe it is mistaken for a heart attack. Gallstones are very common, especially in women. In fact, surgery to remove gallstones is one of the most commonly performed procedures in North America.
Thankfully, you can help prevent gallstones by incorporating these healthy, everyday foods into your diet:
Freshly Squeezed Fruit And Vegetable Juices
One way gallstones occur is when calcium and cholesterol crystallize in the gallbladder. The gallbladder works in conjunction with the liver to clear toxins and aid with the digestive process, so poor nutrition and excess toxicity can overload the system and result in gallstones. Once gallstones form it is much more difficult to flush them out of your system.
Incorporating fresh juice from fruit and vegetables into your daily routine helps to keep the liver and gallbladder clean, detoxifying and eliminating inflammation. Try raw unfiltered apple juice. It’s high in pectin, which softens existing gallstones and prevents future ones from forming.
The juice from lemons, beets, celery, and tomatoes are also excellent detoxifiers and help keep the bile from crystallizing.
This may sound counterintuitive: gallbladder patients are often warned to stay away from fatty foods. It’s true that heavy, saturated fats can overload an already weakened gallbladder causing nausea, indigestion, and even vomiting but some fats actually contribute to a healthy gallbladder.
Another great addition to your diet is fish-oil pills. Fish oil is rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
The important thing is to avoid toxic fats, which come from a class of fats known to be a primary cause of inflammation. Inflammation causes spikes in cholesterol that can lead to blockages, gallbladder pain and even disease. This class of fats includes vegetable-based and hydrogenated oils—such as canola and soybean oil—which are high in dangerous omega-6 fatty acids. Stick to fats that are high in omega-3 fatty acids instead.
Supplement With Lecithin
A quick, easy and natural method for dissolving gallstones is taking lecithin supplements derived from either sunflowers or GMO-free soy. Lecithin is a principle component of cell membranes, composed of choline and inositol. This fatty substance requires large amounts of bile to breakdown. When it enters the liver it is dissolved into bile that ultimately helps breaks down gallstones.
Suggested dosage: Studies suggest between 300-2000 mg per day. Use Non GMO Soy lecithin.
Apple Cider Vinegar And Malic Acid
This is commonly hailed as a miracle method for clearing gallstones quickly and non-invasively. Supplementing with apple cider vinegar and malic acid—which occurs naturally in high concentrations in apples—soften gallstones. Try mixing apple cider vinegar with fresh squeezed raw apple juice for an effective gallbladder cleanse.
Studies show that turmeric has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which contribute to gallbladder health. The delicious spice is shown to improve the solubility of bile. It also helps to breakdown substances that could form into gallstones.
Turmeric is composed primarily of curcumin. For better gallbladder health try supplementing with it.
Suggested dosage: 300mg of curcumin three times daily.
Warning: turmeric is not suggested for those who suffer from gallbladder pain and attacks.
