Gallstones- Why Its Home Remedies is Useful

By: james sameul

Think of your gallbladder as a kind of storage tank for your liver. It collects bile, a cholesterol-rich fluid secreted by the liver. When you eat something fatty, your small intestine sends out a biochemical message to the gallbladder--"Hey, squirt out some bile!" The bile interacts with the food, helping to break it down into digestible bits.

Chicory Treatment: The flowers, seeds, and roots of chicory or the endive plant are considered valuable in the treatment of gall-bladder disorders. A decoction of about 30-60 ml of the flowers, seeds, or roots can be used three times daily with beneficial results in the treatment of these disorders. Endive or chicory juice in almost any combination promotes the secretion of bile and is, therefore, very good for both liver and gall-bladder dysfunctions.

Surgery can come with side effects. While most people who have paid out thousands of dollars to have their gallbladder removed go on to lead normal healthy lives, a small percentage of cases don't. One reason is, your gallbladder is needed to regulate the bile that your liver manufactures. Without your gallbladder their the bile will continually run into your stomach even when you're not eating anything. Bile is needed to properly digest fat, so when it comes to eating a meal high in fat you may not have enough bile left to aid in its digestion.

oods to Avoid- Most gallstones are caused because of a poor diet including high fats and high cholesterol. We recommend avoiding high fattening foods, fried foods, eggs, pork, onions, fowl, milk citrus, corn, beans and nuts. Stay away from these foods for at least one month and slowly reintroduce these foods to your diet.

Foods to Eat!- The best way to treat gallstones is to prevent gallstones. To prevent gallstones you need to keep your body flushed with fiber. Water-soluble fiber, such as that found in many vegetables and fruits are good sources of fiber. You should also eat foods high in whole grain dietary fiber.
