|How to clean the gallbladder and liver at home|
Natural Remedies for Gallstones
1 - Lemon Juice
Another good ingredient for keeping gallstone attacks under control is lemon juice. It stops your liver from making cholesterol, which helps in faster recovery. The pectin in lemon juice is believed to help get rid of gallbladder pain attributed to stones.
Plus, the vitamin C in lemon juice makes cholesterol more water soluble, which promotes faster elimination of waste products.
Drink fresh juice squeezed from four lemons each day on an empty stomach. Follow the drink with a glass of water. Continue this therapy for a week.
Alternatively, you can drink four tablespoons of lemon juice mixed in a glass of warm water every day on an empty stomach. Continue this treatment for several weeks until the gallstones are eliminated from the body.
2. Pear Juice for Gall Stone Removal
Your pear shaped gallbladder can be cleaned with the fruit whose shape it takes- yes the pear itself. The American Medical Association (AMA) says that about 80 percent of gallstones are formed by hardened cholesterol. It is believed that pectin present in pears binds to cholesterol-filled gallstones so that they be flushed out of your body. However, according to the British Journal of Nutrition, pectin does not prevent gallstones nor have considerable effect on metabolizing cholesterol. However, traditionally, pear juice is said to dissolve the gallstones. Looking at the benefits of the fruit, there’s no harm in taking pear juice. You may want to combine it with other home remedies for your gallbladder stones. If you do so, here are the instructions, how to have pear juice for gallstones.
• Hot water- half a glass
• Pear juice- half a glass
• Honey- 2 tbsp
• Mix pear juice with hot water.
• Add honey to it and mix well.
• Have this juice thrice a day.
3 - Peppermint
Peppermint aids digestion by stimulating the flow of bile and other digestive juices. Plus, it has a compound called terpene that can effectively dissolve gallstones. It is also believed to help relax spasms and relieve acute gallbladder pain.
Boil one cup of water.
Add one teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves.
Remove from heat, cover and steep for five minutes.
Strain and add one teaspoon honey.
Enjoy the tea while it is still warm, twice daily for four to six weeks. Drink it between meals for maximum results.
4 - Beetroot, Cucumber and Carrot Juice for Gallstones
Juice therapies are what are mostly recommended by traditional natural remedies for gallstones. Among these juices, one that is made from the combination of beetroot, cucumber and carrots is highly effective for gallbladder. Beets not only strengthen and cleanse gallbladder and your liver but also help in cleansing colon and your blood. Cucumber, with its high water content, is great for detoxifying liver as well as gallbladder which is also done by carrot juice high in vitamin C and other rich nutrients.
• Beet root- 1
• Cucumber- 1
• Carrots (medium)- 4
Remember, you should get equal amounts of all the three juices. So, if needed, increase or decrease the quantity of each vegetable accordingly. For example, you should get 13/ glass each of beet root juice, carrot juice and cucumber juice to get a glass of their combined juice.
• Take out the juice of all the three vegetables- beetroot, cucumber and carrots.
• Mix them.
• Have this juice twice a day.
You may even add apples, celery and ginger while making this juice to get added benefits.
5 - Psyllium
Psyllium is a very good source of soluble fiber, hence it is considered a good remedy for gallstones. The fiber in psyllium binds to the cholesterol in bile and helps prevent gallstones from forming.
Plus, it promotes normal bowel movements, which reduces risk of the gallbladder system becoming congested. In addition, psyllium prevents constipation, a condition associated with increased gallstone formation.
Add one tablespoon of psyllium powder to a glass of water.
Mix well and drink it two times a day.
Repeat daily until your gallstones are gone.
Note: When taking psyllium, make sure you drink lots of water as it absorbs water.
6 - Diet and Lifestyle Changes for Gallstones
There have to be certain changes in your diet and lifestyle to cure gallbladder stones. Here are some suggestions.
Drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday.
If overweight, reduce weight. Avoid fatty foods. Exercise regularly. Eat smaller meals and spread it over the day- instead of 3 big meals, have 5-6 smaller meals.
Avoid constipation, it helps in forming gallstones.
Have coffee everyday but do not drink it in excessive amounts. One or two cups a day is enough. Coffee increases the flow of bile and thus prevents gallstones.
Have loads of vitamin C during the day. For this, include citrus fruits in your diet. Have lemon juice.
Use such spices and herbs that stimulate liver as well as gallbladder like turmeric, dried ginger, black pepper, long pepper, asafoetida, etc.
Careful planning of diet and intelligently selected home herbal remedies according to the needs of your body can sure give you a chance to keep your gallbladder by removing the gallstones naturally.
7 - Maintain a Healthy Body Weight
Being overweight or obese might increase your chances of having gallstones (especially females who are overweight) since studies suggest that obese people might produce high levels of cholesterol in their livers. Research shows that people who don’t maintain a healthy weight might experience more inflammation and swelling within the gallbladder, especially if they have large amounts of fat around their waist that signifies underlying visceral fat stores around the organs.
The healthiest thing for your body overall is to maintain your weight and stay within a healthy range of your natural “set point.” Yo-yo dieting (gaining and losing over and over again) has negative impacts on your hormones, digestion, immune system and metabolism. Weight cycling is believed to increase the chances for gallstones, so if you think you need to lose weight for health reasons, do so in a moderate way by taking it slow and avoiding crash diets or fad-diet programs that restrict calories too much.
It is important to be aware of the gallbladder
The gallbladder is a hollow organ that sits just beneath the right lobe of the liver. In adults, the gallbladder measures approximately 8 centimetres (3.1 inches) in length and 4 centimetres (1.6 in) in diameter when fully distended. The gallbladder has a capacity of about 100 millilitres (3.5 imperial fluid ounces).
The gallbladder is shaped like a tapered sac, with the open end opening into the biliary tree and the cystic duct. Anatomically, the gallbladder is divided into three sections: the fundus, body, and neck: The fundus is a rounded end that faces the front of the body. The body is in contact with the liver, lying in the gallbladder fossa, a depression at the bottom of the liver. The neck tapers and is continuous with the cystic duct, part of the biliary tree. The gallbladder fossa, against which the fundus and body of the gallbladder lie, is found beneath the junction of hepatic segments IVB and V. The cystic duct unites with the common hepatic duct to become the common bile duct. At the junction of the neck of the gallbladder and the cystic duct, there is an out-pouching of the gallbladder wall forming a mucosal fold known as Hartmann's pouch, where gallstones commonly get stuck.
The angle of the gallbladder is located between the costal margin and the lateral margin of the rectus abdominis muscle. The fundus is at the same level as the transpyloric plane.
