You can dissolve gallstones in most cases. Surgical procedures should be a last resort and not your only option. However, not every doctor will be upfront and honest in telling you that you do have the power to dissolve your gallstones. They usually tell you to wait and see if your pain increases in intensity and frequency.
If the pain increases and the frequency increases, most doctors will tell you that surgery is necessary to remove the gallbladder. What they fail to tell you is, if you begin treating your body for gallstones prior to experiencing the pain you are decreasing your chances of having them at all.
Also, when you first begin experiencing the discomfort that is typically associated with gallstones, you should begin a treatment to dissolve gallstones instead of allowing them to multiply and or grow.
Here are 3 great tips to help you naturally eliminate your gallstones and hold on to your gallbladder:
1. Drink more water. As you might already know, water is vital to achieve and maintain optimal health. Your skin benefits from proper hydration, your hair, nails, metabolism and virtually everything.
By increasing your water consumption to about 12-8 ounce glasses a day you are assisting your body in flushing the toxins, including the gallstones out.
2. Water soluble fibers will help you in eliminating toxins as well. You should add more fresh vegetables and fruits to your diet. This will also benefit your regularity.
3. Do not eat fried foods. Avoid them at all costs. Fatty and fried foods will increase the cholesterol which increases the number of gallstones that form and can increase the size of existing gallstones.
Make sure you talk to your doctor before you change your diet. It is possible that you could cause more damage with other medical conditions if you begin changing anything.
Your doctor will take your other medical conditions into consideration as well as your dietary and nutritional needs when assisting you in putting together a new diet that will benefit your overall health and assist you in dissolving your gallstones.
When you are trying to dissolve gallstones, it is important that you pay attention to what your body is telling you. Especially if you begin to have more frequent and more intense pain.
Any changes in the way you feel should be reported to your medical care provider. It is possible that you can aggravate an underlying condition when you modify your diet too drastically.
