Gall stones are the symptoms of an underlying complication. Diagnosis of the cause helps in the complete remedy to the problem.

  • About eight ounces of apple juice in the morning and night for about three months proves beneficial. The effectiveness of this remedy is attributed to the malic acid in apples that has the capacity to soften and pull them out of the gall bladder.
  • Citrate of magnesia is a purgative that helps in emptying the rectum and gall bladder of all the stones.

  • Adequate amount of water and other liquids help in flushing off the stones from the gall bladder.

Certain tips to cope up with gall stones are:

  • Complete restriction of fat in the diet is not allowed. Fat is essential for the expulsion of the contents. About twenty percent of calories should be provided by fat.
  • Foods with saturated fats are not permitted. Processed food, marbled meat, butter, margarine, coconut and palm oil are restricted.
  • Certain remedies at home work for few individuals. The effectiveness of these remedies, depend on the severity of the problem.
  • Calorie reduction helps in weight maintenance and aids in extra pound loss.
  • Weight loss in a gradual manner is helpful. Sudden and drastic weight loss precipitates gall stones.
  • A thirty minute exercise session on a daily basis helps to reduce the risk of gall stones.
  • Eat a balanced diet with a good supply of dietary fiber.
  • Alcoholic beverages and cholesterol rich foods are not recommended.
  • Gall stones are benefited by phosphatidyl choline (an extract of lecithin).
  • Alternative therapies, such as massage proves beneficial. Research reveals the massage at five points to be effective, namely, liver, diaphragm, thyroid, solar plexus and gall bladder. This is done twice a day.
  • A gall bladder flush helps in the removal of the stones, cholesterol and other unwanted toxins. About twelve glasses of water per day, acts as a hydration flush that removes the stones. An alternative is to drink half the body weight of water in terms of ounces, on a daily basis.
  • Choice of right foods is an essential part of your diet. Salad dressings with vinegar and olive oil are a good replacement. Avoid red meats and opt for leaner cuts, such as the loin and sirloin.
  • Pain from gall stones are aggravated by fizzy drinks. Proper care helps in managing the condition, in an easy manner.
