Home Gallbladder Remedies
Your gallbladder is located on the right side of your abdomen, right beneath the liver, and it holds the bile fluid that gets released into your small intestine to break down the food you eat. The reason gallstones form is still clinically unclear, but the bile excreted by the liver begins to crystallize and eventually form solids; different stones form under different conditions. If the liver excretes too much cholesterol, more cholesterol than the bile can remove, this cholesterol can form stones in the gallbladder. Another reason for gallstones is another chemical produced by the liver when breaking down red blood cells, bilirubin. Excess bilirubin can build up in the gallbladder and form stones.
Gallstones can remain silent and cause no trouble, but if a gallstone gets stuck in the body and causes a blockage, the result can be very painful. Gallstone pain can be sudden and intense, felt in the center or right side of the abdomen, or even back and shoulder pain. Gallstone symptoms can also include yellowing of the skin and eyes.

[YEA] I experience terrible pain in my stomach. I research the net and found that eating fried foods, spicy dishes, pizza and etc. I have gallstones and never knew. It started at about 3-4 am in the morning with eating those dishes I listed above. I start the pain in stomach, nausea, and feelings of constipation. I would first throw up and the nausea passed. When this ended I would finally be able to go back to sleep. I would have to be at work at 7am and extremely tired.
Finally I discovered Alfalfa pills, no particular store brand but they worked!!! 2-1300 mg pills in the afternoon before eating the above listed foods. No more attacks!!

I was doing very well prior to slipping back into eating out. Little by little it seems to build and bam, attack!! The Stone has been released!
I noticed that table bread for me in any amount should be avoided at all cost. I also noticed that excessive fat content in one or two meals in a day will bring it on.
I am doing a flush now with Organic Apple Juice. I drink warm/hot water in the morning with Lemon Juice. I am sticking to mostly vegi's and rice during the Flush. I am doing this Flush with the help of a Dr and a Nutritionist. I am taking a bile thining supplement. I am tying to eat healthy fat and do not have an issue with Real Organic Butter or Salt in moderation with vegi's. I did this flush before and flushed many Stones. Yet, it dawned on me after eating a slightly escallating amount of trigger foods which I am probably also alergic to, I was passing a stone. The Apple Juice is a miracle disolvent for Stones. After an attack rest your body because there is so much going on with the Bile Duct. Drink Apple Juice and try to stay stress free. Eat carefully.
If I have to have surgery but with more disapline and time, MAYBE I can avoid it because I also contemplate the what if's. You know, what if it the start of hospital surgeries. I have read that if your healthy and your bloodwork shows high levels resulting from an attack then you may be able to heal by eating a better diet. Potatoes (Gold) seem to also be a miracle food for some reason. Good luck with your health.
I read last night that it takes years for stones to develope. If you have cleaned up your diet and you go back to eating something you are not use too you will trigger a potential stone release. You have to dissolve the stones and you have to eat healthy fat. The Gallbladder needs good fat.. That's it's job. I underworked mine. I didn't eat good or bad fat just refined breads and sugar over the years and minimal vegtables. I love carb's.
