Gallbladder Symptoms Can Dissolve Naturally With These Easy Steps
Gallbladder symptoms are common, especially among woman over 40, however, in many cases they cause no pain and draw little attention. That is, until a gallstone shifts out of the gallbladder where it was silent and moves into a bile duct, lodging there.
Stones can range in size from tiny grains of sand to large marbles and fill the gallbladder completely. They are typically made from hardened cholesterol and sometimes bile salts or pigments. The smallest crystals and stones will pass through the bile duct, occasionally causing mild, temporary pain after a meal.
When a stone becomes stuck, pain increases to excruciating levels. This is termed a gallbladder attack and can often send people to the ER.
Gallbladder symptoms may feel like a heart attack as pain radiates to the chest, mid back and even right shoulder. The deep, gnawing ache can last between 30 minutes to several hours. If you have suffered through one or more of these painful attacks, your doctor will likely recommend gallstone removal through surgery. During this procedure, known as cholecystectomy, the entire gallbladder is removed. Though conventional medicine will often promote this surgery as one with few long-term consequences, this is only partially true.
Surgery alone will never be able to address the underlying deficiencies and imbalances that cause gallstones, and there are uncomfortable, long term effects to deal with after gallbladder surgery.
For this reason, it is always best to prevent gallbladder symptoms in the first place. With careful attention to your liver and its supportive partner, the gallbladder, you can naturally dissolve and prevent gallstones.
Women, unfortunately, have a higher risk of gallstone formation because estrogen is linked to increasing the amount of cholesterol in the bile. Today, aside from birth control pills and hormone replacement medications, high estrogen is becoming more common because of endocrine disruptors found in beauty or cleaning products and chemicals in processed foods.
If possible, eliminate sources in your life that increase estrogen levels and if you are a woman of childbearing age, be sure to maintain a diet and lifestyle that supports gallbladder health.
Studies show that people who are obese have higher levels of cholesterol and their livers/bile may contain high amounts of this common gallstone precursor.
Overall, excess body fat and poor fitness can also mean generalized inflammation and a more inflamed gallbladder.
When you decide to get in shape through diet and exercise, ensure that you lose weight slowly and sustainably, because crash dieting and rapid weight loss can actually trigger gallstone formation.
If you want to support great digestion, liver health and prevent gallstones, you’ll need to get your diet on track. Anti-inflammatory foods lower the risk of gallstone formation and reduce inflammation if they are already present.
Consume more high-fiber foods, green leafy vegetables, fresh nuts and seeds, beans, legumes and healthy fats.
Healthy fats which are good for your gallbladder and the rest of you include: extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, flax, hemp or almond oil. Fats from wild caught fish, avocados, nuts and seeds are also healthy and rich sources of essential fatty acids. Grass fed butter and dairy products are also all right in moderation, but if you have gallbladder symptoms already, it is best to reduce these for a while.
Avoid fats, which are hydrogenated, saturated and otherwise processed. Many sugary desserts and processed foods fall into this category and should be eliminated from the diet altogether.
There are a number of safe, natural products that promote gallbladder health and will help to reduce gallstones symptoms. These include:
- Milk thistle
- Apple cider vinegar
- Apple juice
Gallbladder treatment alternatives may include the Pulverexx Protocol that dissolves cholesterol and calcified gallstones.
