Have you ever been diagnosed with a gallstone? To release the pain, you may be thinking about going for surgery. But if surgery can be avoided, who wants it?
Understand what caused it first, second, find a natural remedy that can help in preventing it in the future and avoid surgery.
The gallbladder is a small organ that can be located under the liver. Its use is to store bile that is produced by the liver and is needed for the digestion of fats.
Gallstone is a product of this bile and is very much made up of cholesterol. A stone can be as large as a golf ball and can also be as small as a grain of salt.
Some people do not know when they have gallstone because it is usually not a problem. It is only an issue when the gallbladder does not empty as it should or when one plugs up a duct.
If you have ever experienced gallstone, there are natural remedies to try before you go for surgery.
The remedy both for prevention and elimination is a mixture of fresh apple, apple cider vinegar and apple juice.
Like the old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Here are some benefits of apple and how they help in avoiding gallstone.
Apples offer fibre which helps in the processing of food better in the body, they are full of antioxidants, ( good for reducing cholesterol ) and can help in weight loss.
In addition to other benefits, apples help in softening gallstones and makes it easy for the body to release them.
The mixture of apple juice and apple cider vinegar helps the most in treating existing gallstones. The malic acid that is in the juice aids in softening the gallstones, and breaking them up while the vinegar in apple cider does not allow the formation of cholesterol, which is the source of gallstone in the first place.
The combination of apple cider vinegar and apple juice not only helps in the treatment of existing problems, but can also hinder it in the future, and it is among those natural remedies that are easy to locate.
The mixture helps in eliminating or reducing painful flare ups. To apply this natural remedy, only make a mix of one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with one glass of apple juice, drink it every day for six to seven days.
After drinking the apple cider vinegar and apple juice, use a natural gallbladder cleanser of lemon juice and olive oil. It will facilitate the release of softened stones from the gallbladder. Olive oil helps in lubricating the stones and acts as a natural laxative so that the stones can be easily passed and the lemon juice extracts the stones from the gallbladder.
Rather than using a short-term remedy like the mixture, make it a habit of eating fresh apples daily even after gallstones are gone. This will help decrease future occurrence.
