Gallbladder Disorders

 From Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A Balch, CNC and James E Balch, MD For Inflammation of the Gallbladder: Eat no solid food for a few days. Consume only distilled spring water. Then drink juices such as pear, beet, and apple for three days. Then add solid foods: shredded raw beets with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, fresh lemon juice and freshly made uncooked applesauce made in a blender or food processor. Apple juice aids in softening gallstones. For gallstones: Take 3 tablespoons of olive oil with the juice of lemon before bed and upon awakening. Stones are often passed and eliminated in the stool with this technique - look for them. You can use grapefruit juice instead. To relieve acute pain, try using hot castor oil packs on the gallbladder area. Dip a piece of cheesecloth or other white cotton material into the oil until the cloth is saturated. Apply the cloth to the affected area and cover it with a piece of plastic that is larger in size than the cotton cloth. Place a heating pad or hot water bottle over the plastic and use it to keep the pack warm. Keep the pack in place for one-half to two hours, as needed. Eat a diet consisting of 75 percent raw foods. Include in the diet applesauce, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, broiled fish, fresh apples, and beets. To cleanse the system, consume as much pure apple juice as possible for five days. Add pear juice occasionally. Beet juice also cleanses the liver. Avoid sugar and products containing sugar. Avoid all animal fat and meat, saturated fats, full-fat dairy products, fried foods, spicy foods, margarine, soft drinks, commercial oils, chocolate, and refined carbohydrates. While you have pain, nausea and/or vomiting, and fever, follow a fasting program and use coffee enemas for a few days. A detoxification program for the liver and colon is important for improved gallbladder function. Do not overeat.
