Gallstone surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries there is today. .In this video, you will find out the best natural treatments to prevent and treat gallstones.
Our gallbladder plays a very important role in our health, and we don’t even think about it. However, if it weren’t for this pear shaped organ, our digestive system wouldn’t function correctly. Bile, the substance that helps digest fat, is stored in our gallbladder.

Whenever the amount of water and bile becomes unbalanced in your body, calcium and cholesterol crystals form and build up, originating what is called cholelithiasis, or gallstones.
These gallstones may not show any symptoms, but some people report intense and continuous pain, in addition to nausea and vomiting. In nature we find several ingredients that can not only help prevent, but also treat some cases of gallstones.
Here are some of them:
Apple cider vinegar
The malic acid in the apple acts as a softener and stops the liver’s production of cholesterol, in addition to helping to dissolve the stones little by little. Put a tablespoon of vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Take it whenever you’re in pain.
Vitamin C deficiency has been linked to a higher incidence of gallstones. Being rich in this substance, regular consumption of lemons is helpful in preventing the onset of gallstones. Lemons are also rich in citric acid and contribute to reducing gallbladder calcification and cholesterol production. You can drink the juice from four lemons, on an empty stomach, for a week. It’s also recommended that you drink plenty of water after ingesting the juice.
Mint is rich in terpene, a substance that stimulates the production of bile juices, which helps to lessen the effects of gallstones and even dissolve some of them. You can get this benefit by making a tea with mint leaves. Drink it twice a day for a month.
Many vegetables have a beneficial effect in the treatment of gallstones. A good way to use them is to include juices made with vegetables in your diet. Vegetables such as beets, cucumbers and carrots strengthen gallbladder function and stimulate the production of bile.
Because of their high diuretic and depurative power, dandelions are a great alternative because it makes your gallbladder work better, avoiding bile stones. This tea also helps dissolve these stones naturally. You can make a tea with dry dandelion root. It’s recommended that you take it three times a day for a week.
