If you’ve been making do with gallstones, then the most viable way to treat it is by undergoing surgery. That’s not to say you should skimp on natural remedies as they can also work magic. In this simple guide, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you treat gallstones without surgical procedures. Keep reading to find out more.

Gallbladder Cleanse

A gallbladder cleanse or flush is the ideal way to break up the gallstones and empty the gallbladder. In cleansing the gallbladder most people consume the combination of olive oil, juice and herbs for two or more days. During that time you are not supposed to take anything else other than the oil mixture.

Even though it is an effective way of treating gallstones, this mixture can be dangerous for people with diabetes or those who experience low blood sugar. Yes, olive oil can have an effect on bile consumption but can’t affect the gallstones.

Artichoke

Artichoke is probably beneficial for gallbladder function  as it helps stimulate bile and perfect for liver health. No wonder there is nothing wrong with leveraging this treatment option if you want to handle your gallstones without surgery. Artichoke can be steamed, picked or grilled.

One thing you should always keep in mind is that artichoke in pill form or the one sold as supplement should only be taken after you’ve consulted your physician. With the help of a doctor, artichoke can be a better natural treatment for gallstones.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture can to some extent relieve some of the pain from gallstones by reducing spasms, easing bile flow. And this doesn’t come as a surprise considering it can restore proper functioning. As a result, acupuncture is probably a better treatment for gallstones as its relatively safe.

When choosing an acupuncturist, be sure to look for a licensed one and also make sure they are using a new single-use needles. Acupuncture should be administered in a room with other people rather than in a private setting. Anything less than this is a huge red flag, and you might be better off looking elsewhere.
