Treating Gallstones in Pregnant Women

Treating Gallstones while Pregnant

Pregnant WomenThe habitual pain in your abdomen in the upper right quadrant, and between your shoulder blades, is causing you some concern – not only because of the intense nature of the pain, but also because you are pregnant.You also tend to feel nauseous after meals and sometimes you want to vomit and this has been going on for some days.  Does it have anything to do with your pregnancy or is it something unrelated to it?  This is what is uppermost in your mind these days.  A visit to the doctor will clarify your doubts – you are most probably suffering from gallstones while you are pregnant, and this is not anything extraordinary.

It is quite normal for a pregnant lady to have pain on account of gallstones because of high estrogen levels in the body during that period.  Surgery, and drugs are almost ruled out in the first trimester of your pregnancy – that leaves you with little choice but to go for Natural Therapy.  And you will be happy to know that it is a far safer and better form of treatment than any other, especially during pregnancy,  since it uses only natural methods and substances in its prescriptions and you need not worry about side-effects.

Gallstones are the result of excess bile remaining in the gallbladder after the required amount is released into the bile duct for digestion of fats by the small intestine.  This excess bile, which is generally in concentrated form, tends to solidify in the gallbladder, forming gallstones of various sizes.  Some of the larger ones, when they travel into the narrow ducts connecting the gallbladder to the small intestine, can block the ducts, stopping the normal flow of the bile, leading to a pileup of bile in the duct: the duct then swells and gets inflamed, the inflammation spreading also to the gallbladder, and causing the pain which you feel so regularly.  But Natural Therapy is the method by which you can bring this under control – it is in fact the most effective method yet, for treatment of gallstones.

Some of the basic tenets of Natural Therapy as far as gallstones are concerned, are as under:

Avoid junk food, go easy on carbohydrates and fats, drink plenty of water, and get lots of exercise.    These simple yet useful suggestions will go a long way in helping you with your gallstone problem if implemented diligently.

Also, eat a lot of apples, pears, grapefruit, cherries, and horseradish.All of these are natural good remedies for gallstones.

If you are looking for a quick treatment for gallstones while you are pregnant, here is a safe and sure method:

For 2 days, drink 4 glasses a day of apple juice:  On the second night, make a cupful of a mixture of equal volumes of dark olive oil and lemon juice and drink it before bedtime.  Watch yourself become free of gallstones on the third day.
