BEETS, BEET GREENS, RAW OR COOKED (DAILY FOR ME) THINS THE BILE. I HAVE IT EVERY MORNING, FIRST THING. SUCH A RELIEF!
I just tried Organic, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar for my Gall Stone attack. I remember I had one years ago and did a cleanse with cucumbers and such. I juice fast regularly and eat healthy - until the last few months. I started eating out and now paying the price. I've drank the ACV with organic apple juice and a little water. About 3 TBS of ACV. Feeling relief right away! I've used ACV to help with so many things! Please MAKE SURE you use the raw, organic ACV or you will get sick. I promise - you'll get sick.
Stevenson & Carole: I found a very interesting website and hope you'll have some time to take a look. It's a journey that one man took to save his gallbladder as well. While he has not had a follow up scan, he states that he is completely symptom free. I may incorporate some of his suggestions while keeping up with my bean consumption.
I don't know about how you both handled this, but I'm finding it extremely hard to eat anything more than these beans! Other than my morning coffee and cream which I absolutely can not give up. That is my drug of choice! I grind my beans every morning and when I want true decedance, I enjoy my cream and espresso's with my Nespresso machine. Granted, I cut my consuption down to 2 cups a day, but I refuse to give it up. :-)
Carole, I'm a bit concerned about the tamarind. Although I actually have tamarind paste in my pantry as I type, I did a very brief search and found that while it helps the liver, it is not so good for one that has gallstone issues. Here are 2 links that I stumbled across. Perhaps I'm reading it incorrectly? http://www.botanical-online.com/english/tamarind_properties.htm & http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16041099
I did however come across some unnerving info in regards to legumes and gallbladder, which I would like some input/opinioins. I will continue this regimen knowing what Stevenson has experienced, but still somewhat concerned.
Let me know what you think...
Thanks, Rei :-)
