    Now, Dissolve Gallstones Naturally!

    The gallbladder is a small pouch in the shape of a pear that sits behind the liver. Its duty is to keep a stock of the cholesterol-rich bile that the liver secretes to help the body digest fatty food. So when a fatty food reaches the intestines, the snake-like bowels send a signal to the gallbladder to secrete some bile. With the release of bile, the fatty food becomes easier to digest and makes its way to the digestive process. Gallbladder stones may form as a result of an imbalance in the chemical make-up of the bile that is stored inside the gallbladder. There may also be other reasons for its formation. If you have gallbladder stones, you must not fix up on getting it removed through surgery only. Instead, you should try to dissolve it with the help of natural remedies. And one of the best natural treatments for gallbladder stones includes juices.

    Apple Juice

    Apple juice tends to be gentler on the body compared with lemon juice and juice made of Epsom salts. Mix a tablespoonful of apple cider vinegar with a glass of apple juice and drink this juice every morning. Malic acid in apple juice is responsible for softening gallstones and the vinegar in it reduces the amount of cholesterol that exists in bile. Both of these ingredients slowly dissolve the stones and prevent them from forming.

    Dandelion and Milk Thistle

    The leaves of a dandelion plant stimulate gallbladder to release bile and milk thistle helps the liver to produce less-concentrated bile. Together these ingredients help in dissolving gallstones. Put a cup of dandelion leaves into the blender and add a quarter cup of milk thistle leaves and blend the two. Add some honey as well as berries to relieve the bitter taste.

    Epsom Salts Juice

    Epsom salts are responsible for helping the gallstones to move readily through the bile duct. Pour a teaspoonful of Epsom salts into water of room temperature and drink it every evening for a week. You could also drink two or three glassfuls of Epsom salts over a few couple of hours. Some people have reportedly experienced severe diarrhea after consuming Epsum salt juice.

    Peppermint tea

    Peppermint is responsible for stimulating the flow of bile as well as terpene, which is a compound that is found in peppermint. This helps in dissolving the gallstones. To make a glass of fresh peppermint juice, steep fresh and dried mint leaves in a bowl of hot water to make the tea. Drink this tea several times in the day.

    Natural extracts work really well in dissolving gallstones. For instance, the St. John’s Wort is a type of plant that you may have as tea. Drink half a cupful of this tea a couple of times throughout the day for a few days. To make the tea, boil water with 4 or 5 leaves of the herbal plant of your choice.
