Treating Gallstones during Pregnancy
You are pregnant and you have this terrible pain in your upper right abdomen; the area between your shoulder blades also aches badly and the nausea and vomiting that occurs after meals is giving you sleepless nights – this kind of tension you can ill-afford while pregnant – but if you visit your doctor, he will tell you what it is due to – your symptoms point to gallstones – and this is quite common among pregnant women due to the high levels of estrogen in the body at such times. Blood tests may not conclusively indicate gallstones because of your pregnancy, but a USG will be more helpful. The situation can become serious if left unattended. But there is no cause for alarm. Your doctor may or may not recommend surgery because of your pregnancy, and it is just as well – even drugs can have bad side effects – so what is the alternative? Go for Natural Therapy – one of the safest and most effective methods of treatment for gallstones especially during pregnancy. No drugs are necessary – only natural substances will be used while under this form of treatment.
Gallstones form in the gallbladder when the bile from the liver after processing in the gallbladder, remains there instead of moving into the bile duct and thence to the small intestine for digestion of fatty foods. The concentrated bile hardens into gallstones, the composition being- cholesterol, bilirubin and calcium salts. Some of these gallstones can be fairly large, about the size of a pebble – and if such large gallstones move into the bile duct along with the bile, there are chances of blockage and buildup of bile on one side of the blockage, causing swelling of the duct and inflammation of the gallbladder. At such times, you feel pain and nausea and are totally unwell. Do not worry – once the condition has been diagnosed correctly, there are natural cures available for rectifying it. Natural Therapy has several good remedies for gallstones, and these need to be carried out consciously for them to be effective.
Take care to follow some simple suggestions first:
Reduce the amount of carbohydrates and fats in your diet, while also totally staying away from junk foods. Get plenty of water and fruit juices to drink and see that you get sufficient movement and exercise. These suggestions have great value as far as gallstone treatment goes.
For a quick remedy, do the following 3-day process:
Drink 4 glasses of apple juice per day for 2 days: On the second night, take a cup of equal volumes of dark olive oil and lemon juice – sip it till you complete it just before bedtime: On the third day, you will be free from gallstones.
Regular observance of the basic suggestions will thereafter help to keep the gallstones from forming.
