Natural ways to relieve gallbladder distress naturally: identify and eliminate food allergens with an allergy elimination diet, avoid fried foods and decrease intake of saturated fats (red meats, cream, butter, cheese), increase dietary fiber, limit sugar as it is associated with an increased risk for gallstones, and take natural bile salts with collinsonia root (Cholacol).
Over the past 32 years, we have helped hundreds of patients overcome gallbladder symptoms by following these simple guidelines:
Relieve Gallbladder distress Naturally:
Dr. James Brenneman M.D., Chairman of the Food Allergy Committe of the American College of Allergists, discovered that food allergies cause swelling of the gallbladder ducts and obstruct the flow of bile. When you eat a food allergen, your body reacts by creating swelling. When food allergies cause swelling of the gallbladder ducts, the flow of bile is obstructed. The symptoms of allergy causing obstruction are the same as a stone being stuck in the duct. Dr. Brenman found that 100% of his patients were totally free of gallbladder pain when they avoided their individual food sensitivities, and all had a recurrence of their symptoms when they reintroduced the foods they were allergic to back into their diet.
2. Avoid fried foods
Also, decrease your intake of saturated fats (red meats, cream, butter and cheese).
3. Increase your dietary fiber
Consume fresh fruits, vegetables (especially beets, artichokes, greens and cruciferous vegetables to increase the production of bile), brown rice, millet, quinoa, raw nuts and seeds.
4. Limit your intake of sugar
A high intake of sugar has been associated with an increased risk for gallstones.
5. Take natural bile salts with collinsonia root (Cholacol)
These two substances work together to break down fats, thin the bile and alleviate gas and bloating.
