Gallstones are solid materials that are formed in the gall bladder, which is located under the liver. The major causes of gallstones are genetics, diet, decreased movement of the gall bladder, and obesity. Unfortunately, gallstones often form without any symptoms at all. But when the symptoms do appear, they are quite painful. There is often nausea and vomiting, pain in the upper portion of the abdomen and upper back, which can last for hours.
If you have stones, ask your doctor if you can first try some home remedies to dissolve the stones before you opt for surgery.
Check out some best ways to dissolve gallstones naturally:-
Beetroot with Carrot Juice- If you are already suffering from the pain of gallstones, first cut back on the amount of food you eat for next few days. Avoid fat as much as possible. Then, for the next 5 days, make a juice of equal portions of beetroot, carrots, and cucumbers. Mix well and drink at least 8 ounces twice a day. This should relive your discomfort. Afterwards, drink this mixture at least once a day to help prevent forming new stones.
Turmeric- This miracle spice has been found to be extremely effective in treating gallstones. It has anti-inflammatory as well as high antioxidant compounds. The effective ingredient in turmeric is called curcumin. Turmeric helps make bile more soluble. Take one half a teaspoon every day. It has all the power you need to dissolve more than 80 percent of all gallstones.
Milk Thistle- Milk thistle has long been used as a cure for gallstones. The active ingredient, silymarin, is actually in the seeds of the plant. Silymarin is a known flavonoid that helps your gallbladder produce more bile, which helps break down the stones. Milk thistle also provides support for proper liver function.
Artichoke Compounds- There are compounds found in artichokes, called cyanarin, that help increase the bile salts in the gallbladder. When you increase salts in the bile it will dissolve, and therefore, eliminate your stones.
Apple Cider Vinegar– Apple cider vinegar is another age old remedy for the pain of gallstones. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into one cup of fresh, organic apple juice. Mix well and drink immediately every morning for at least 5 days. This not only treats gallstone problems but can prevent infections as well.
Vitamin C- Although it won’t remove your gallstones, taking a minimum of 200mg of vitamin C daily can cut your chances of developing gallstones by as much as 50 percent!
Hydration- It’s important to keep your body full hydrated and able to flush out the toxins in your body. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every single day. See reasons for dehydration.
Change Your Diet- Most gallstones are caused by a buildup of cholesterol. Eating a diet that is lower in fat and higher in fiber, (yes, we are talking about those good old organic fruits and vegetables), can help many people avoid gallstones in the first place.
