Stop Living With Gallbladder Symptoms
For those struggling with gallbladder symptoms that interfere with daily quality of life, there comes a time when, “enough is enough” and they seek interventions to remedy it. The severe pain and misery that come from gallbladder attacks are beyond mere indigestion, and not the sort of thing that one can live with or ignore for long. In fact, if the painful symptoms of gallstones or gallbladder inflammation are ignored, they tend to get worse, prompting some people to head for the ER, fearing a heart attack.
Mystery pains in the upper right side of the abdomen, which come on after eating meals high in fat, rich in cream or very spicy, are typically related to a sluggish or inflamed gallbladder. When advanced, these cramps spreading to the chest, back or shoulder can develop after eating almost anything and even wake you in the middle of the night.
There is good news for gallbladder symptom sufferers. You don’t have to live with the post-meal trouble any longer, and your solution doesn’t necessarily need to come in the form of surgery. There are lifestyle changes most people can make to help flush out the small, pear-shaped organ which sits just beneath the liver.
Your gallbladder holds and concentrates bile created in your liver to help digest fats and absorb vitamins. This important yellow-green fluid is released in the right amount and concentration when we eat meals that contain fat.
However, due to multiple factors including age, hormones, heredity, cholesterol levels and inactivity, gallbladder contents can become thickened and sluggish, or small, hard stones can form. Though we can’t change risk factors like gender, age or genetics, we can take action on diet and lifestyle in ways that will bring symptom relief almost instantly, and in the long run.
Do you suffer from chronic indigestion? Do you, like many people, skip meals and jump onto yo-yo diets to try and lose weight? Staying in shape and limiting excess calories is a smart health move, however you may be surprised to learn that food depravation can stimulate gallbladder symptoms and problems because its regular emptying slows in absence of dietary fat. No stimulation means bile stagnates and biliary sludge forms. You’ll feel cramping pain when your gallbladder is working too hard to squeeze out thickened fluid or when bile ducts are blocked.
Small gallstones formed of cholesterol or bile pigment deposits can also block a bile duct and cause immense biliary colic. The pressure and pain from a blocked bile duct will typically come on within 2 hours of eating and may last from 30 minutes to several hours. If you have gallstones, they may sit silently in the gallbladder and cause you no pain at all, but when they wander into a duct and become lodged- they are no longer silent.
One way to help the body flush out and remove gallstones is to naturally increase your bile production and literally wash them out of the system. Bitter herbs and plants, lemon and apple cider vinegar are all known for their amazing ability to boost the gallbladder’s function, while keeping the liver in great shape.
Reducing fat content in meals and increasing the production of bile will reduce stone formation, keep bile thin and clear away sludge.
Try adding artichoke, leafy greens, beets, plenty of water and daily additions of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice mixed with water. Talk to your nutritionist about following a gallbladder diet and removing triggers for gallbladder symptoms.
Another effective gallbladder treatment is the Pulverexx Protocol that can dissolve gallstones of all types and sizes.
