How to Deal With Gall Stones?

Posted Aug 15 2012 1:32am

One of my friends was diagnosed with gall stones and she made a great fuss as if it was the end of the world. This post is dedicated to her and all those people on the planet suffering from gall stones. So what are gall stones? Gall stones are small substances that are found in the gall bladder. The liquid stored in the gall bladder hardens to form gall stones. The gall stones are of two types’ cholesterol stones and pigment stones. These stones may be small as a grain of sand or as large as golf ball.

If you suffer from gall stones you should be very careful about your diet. Try to include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Whole grains, lean meat, poultry, fish and low fat dairy products are the best foods for this condition. The foods that should be avoided are highly processed foods, whole milk dairy milk products and fatty red meat. Proper diet coupled with regular exercise can be very beneficial for those suffering from this condition.

A few hours of brisk walking, jogging or bicycling each week can reduce chances of undergoing gall stone surgery especially for women according to a study. The researchers found that almost any type of exercise is beneficial in this regard.  But researchers found that women who were severely obese did not benefit directly from exercise alone.

The reasons for developing gall stones are related to gender, metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Women have a higher percentage of developing this disease with an increased risk during pregnancy. Metabolic syndrome includes having low amounts of good cholesterol, high triglycerides and high blood pressure.

 If you are terrified hearing the word surgery doctors may prescribe a drug called Actigall or recommend treatments such as shock wave therapy or dissolution methods to remove gall stones. But they may work for some and are usually unsuccessful. These methods are rarely advised in clinical practices. The most famous and successful way is surgery. 

But still if you try to remove gall stones naturally then you may try Dr. Lai Chiu-Nan method of removing gall stones. He advises to take four glasses of apple juice for five days. You can very well eat apples and follow a normal diet plan for these five days.
 On the sixth day at 6pm drink a glass of warm water mixed with Epsom salt, repeat this procedure at 8 pm. Then at 10pm mix half cup lemon juice and half cup olive oil and drink it. The next you will find green stones in your stools which float.  Best of luck!!

Take care,
