Gallstones removal – Different ways to remove gallstones
Gallstones are small stones that appear in the gallbladder and may be caused by chemical disturbance, faulty diet, liver sluggishness or toxicity, gallbladder stagnation or bile imbalance.
When the gallbladder bile becomes concentrated, cholesterol starts crystallizing, gradually forming gallstones. Gallstones can vary in size from a tiny grain of sand to larger than a pea. Most of them are cholesterol stones, while one quarter of the gallstones are pigment stones, which consist of calcium salts.
Gallstones usually develop together with kidney stones because both stones are often the result of stagnation of the organs. With the intention of reducing the chance of stone formation again, it is better to cleanse both kidney stones and gallstones.
Gallstones removal often includes gallbladder removal in Western medicine. In cases where gallstones cause frequent and severe attacks or if you have jaundice, gallbladder removal may be advised. If surgery is not an option, sometimes medicines can help dissolve the stones. However, these drugs often take a long time to work and are not always effective. They also usually return after the treatment is finished.
Gallstones removal - chemical approach
However, there are alternatives to surgery and gallstone removal by chemical dissolution, including a gallbladder flush. Traditional remedy recommends the use of olive oil and lemon juice to flush the gallstones that are smaller in size. Here is one of the methods that can help flush away the gallstones:
Drink one glass apple juice 4 times a day (or eat 4 apples) for 5 days, which will make the gallstones softer. On the 6th. day, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt with a glass of warm water instead of dinner (around 6pm). After 2 hours repeat the same in order to help flush out all solid stuff.
The same evening around 10pm., take half a glass of olive oil (or sesame oil) and mix with half a glass of fresh lemon juice (made of 3 lemons). The oil lubricates the stones to help them pass and lemon juice aids in pulling out the stones out from gallbladder ducts. Next time you purge you will find greenish gallstones floating in your toilet bowl.
Gallstones removal - final words
In traditional Chinese medicine Gold Coin Grass (Herba Lysimachiae) is often used to mash and soften the stones so that they will come out gently, causing no side effects. Even though the process may take a relatively long time, in most patients, relief of gallbladder pain is experienced within a few days of using this herb in tincture form.
Gallstones removal should also include eating a healthy, balanced diet and sometimes a low-fat diet to help ease your symptoms.
