Natural Remedy For Treating And Preventing Gall Stones Or For Constipation
Here is a very effective and easy-to-do method for preventing gall stones. It will expel existing small gall stones and help to break up larger stones. Do it just once in a while to keep the Gallbladder free of stones and stale bile.
It is also useful as a detox which will help to remove toxic chemicals from the digestive system. This makes it a helpful treatment for chronic cases of candida, especially when exposure to toxic chemicals has occurred.
Of course, do see your doctor or naturopath if you are experiencing any pain to do with the Gallbladder.
The raw apple, olive oil and lemon treatment is also effective for stubborn cases of constipation. Because of its great detox effect, it is a good thing to do occasionally for prevention of bowel cancer and other maladies caused by auto-intoxication, such as arthritis.
Walter Last recommends a similar method for expelling gall stones, and I have tried it myself with good results.
So – one of the best methods for a Gallbladder flush:
Raw Apple, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice Gallbladder Cleanse.
Three Days On Apples: Begin the treatment with eating only raw, grated apples for three days. Raw apple, grated with its skin still on, cores and all, has a wonderful healing effect on the digestive system. It is roughage-packed, full of Vitamin C and other antioxidants, as well as phytochemicals which help prevent cancer.
You can eat some whole apples as well with the diet, but grate them also, so that you eat plenty as a salad at mealtimes.
Each night while you do the raw apple days, take one tablespoonful of olive oil with some lemon juice – and a spoonful of lecithin if you have it.
Don’t worry if you don’t have lecithin, as the oil and lemon will work as a cleanser, even without it.
On the third apple day, take 1/2 cup of olive oil with 1/2 cup of lemon juice, mixed together. Swallow the lot down in one dose. It is surprisingly easy to take when lemon juice is combined with the olive oil.
There is an option of using orange juice instead of the lemon, but lemon juice is more acidic, more antiseptic, and is a quicker-acting remedy.
Straight after you have swallowed your Olive Oil and lemon drink, lie on the right side for 2 hours with a pillow under the hips.
The Castor Oil Pack
The other thing you can do on the days you are eating only raw apple is to use Castor Oil on a
pack. You put this on the outside of your stomach/gall bladder area.
Easy to make – first buy a bottle of castor oil. Pour around 2 tablespoons over a white cotton or woollen cloth – not too big – just big enough to cover a good area of the stomach.
You leave the Castor Oil Pack on all night with a plastic over it, and something around the outside, like tightish pants, to hold it there. You can loosely bandage it in place if you want to.
Every night, on the nights you take your raw apple, put the Castor Oil pack on the stomach. Leave it on for the whole night.
Save the castor oil pack each morning to use again the following night. Put a little more oil on occasionally to keep it moist.
You do three nights on, and take it off during the day. Even after you have taken the Olive Oil and Lemon to eliminate stones, you can keep up the routine with the Castor Oil Pack to ensure the healing of the Gallbladder.
The same routine pattern applies after you have finished the raw apple and olive oil treatment- Three nights in a row with no pack. Then three nights on again with the pack.
You can use the Castor Oil Pack indefinitely in this way – 3 nights on, 3 nights off. No pack during the day-time.
Good Foods To Aid Gallbladder Function and Prevent Gallstones:
Drink plenty of water each day. Less coffee and tea, and more water.
Eat fewer animal fats and products. Eat more of the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids which are contained in oils such as Olive Oil, fish oils, and linseed or flax oil. One to two tablespoons of any one of these oils per day is a good preventative measure against developing gall stones.
Try to incorporate olive oil as a daily commodity in the diet.
Eat plenty of fibre-rich foods, such as fruits, green vegetables, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds. More fibre in the diet will take away the unwanted cholesterol from the system. Since gall stones are apparently made up of, mainly, cholesterol, more fibre is essential to prevent stones from forming.
Apples and pears are especially good for the Gallbladder, as well as for improving bowel function.
Try to avoid wheat products, such as breads and cakes. Avoid pasteurized dairy milk and switch to either raw milk, if it suits your digestion, or soya milk.
