Hi This is Sarah!

    I've had a few people in recently that have had Gall Bladder issues and thought "Hey I should post something on it!"  Here is what we've done for Gall Bladder stones that works well!

Herbal N Zyme         - 1 Cap before meals

Tum E plus Org.        - 2 Caps 20min before meal

Nu Source Cal          - 1 cap immediately after meals

System Fresh           - 2 caps @ bed

 

After two weeks of Herbal program

Take 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil w/ the juice of a lemon before bed. Lay on your right side.

(You can exchange Lemon Juice for grapefruit juice)

    

HELPFUL FOODS

Vegetable juices - Beet and cucumber are especially helpful to gallbladder You can add other green vegetables like tender baby greens, swiss chard, dandelion greens, beet greens, celery, carrots -- avoid the cabbage family)

Yogurt

Beets

Cucumbers

Green beans - are NOT the same as dried

Okra

Sweet potatoes

Avocados - a good way to get needed fats directly from food

Garlic and onions help with liver cleansing but not processed types like flakes or powder. But some people have trouble digesting them so pay attention

Shallots

Tomatoes - ripe

cold water fish

Baked Chicken

Lemons (lemon juice in the morning with hot water helps to clean the liver)

apples, berries, papaya, pears

Omega 3 oils like flax or hemp. Use these with fresh lemon on your salads. DO NOT COOK flax oil.

Avoid all fruit juices except organic apple (self-juiced is best).

All the vegetables listed above for juicing are good. Use baby mixed organic greens for salads and avoid the bitter greens for now.

Fiber such as found in fruits and vegetables and guar gum         

 

AVOID THESE FOODS     

Eggs, pork, onion, fowl, milk, coffee, oranges, corn, beans, nuts, in that order.

Trans fats

Hydrogenated, partially-hydrogenated oils

Margarine

Fried Foods

Saturated fats (even coconut oil until feeling better)

Red meats

Dairy products

Eggs (Research showed that eggs caused symptoms in up to 95% of patients. However, in my experience soft-boiled or poached with no fat added seems to be okay. Perhaps this is due to the lecithin content that is present in the raw or close to raw egg.)

Coffee, regular or decaf

Chocolate

Ice cream

Black tea

Alcohol, beer, wine, liqueur

Fruit juice

Carbonated water

Radishes and turnips

Cabbage, cauliflower

Colas and all sodas

Oats (for some people)

Wheat

Barley

Rye (although the sour German ryes seem to be less troublesome)

All legumes (beans) as they tend to increase the cholesterol in the bile.

Avoid all artificial sweeteners, sugar, preservatives, refined and bleached foods (like white flour)          

Many steamed greens like collard, mustard and kale, also brussel sprouts and broccoli seem to be a problem for some people. Greens; and especially kale and brussel sprouts are used by the liver to detoxify. It may be necessary to avoid these until you have done some work with the products and flushes as well as diet. Your goal should get to the point where these foods do not cause distress, as they actually target the root of the problem.
