Diet Modification: The Remedial Measure for Gallstones

Gallstones are gallbladder stones that develop when cholesterol hinders the working of the bile duct. Mentioned within are a few dietary tips anyone with gallstones should adopt.

  • Gallstones can become life-threatening when ignored in the long run. Hence removal of gallstones is necessary.

  • Fast for 2-3 days in case of gallbladder inflammation

  • A water-based diet is recommended

  • Avoid greasy foods

Gallstones are small stones that usually develop in the gallbladder when the cholesterol hinders the working of the bile duct. They can be very painful, and if large enough, they can also block the duct that leads out of the gallbladder. Gallstones can become life-threatening when ignored in the long run. Hence removal of gallstones is necessary. In cases of small stones, opt for an Ayurvedic approach towards this.

The following dietary tips are recommended:

  • In case of acute gallbladder inflammation, it is recommended for the patient to fast for 2-3 day until the acute condition is reduced.

  • Intake of solid food should be avoided during the fast. Only water and juices should be consumed.

  • Once the fast is over, eat fresh fruits and vegetable juices for a few days.

  • Carrots, apples, beets and citrus fruits juices should be consumed.

  • Have yogurt and cottage cheese with a tsp of olive oil twice a day

  • A diet rich in magnesium reduces the risk of developing gallstones.

  • Consume foods that have less cholesterol and more acids. This decreases the risk of gallstones.

  • A well balanced diet full of fruits and vegetables should be consumed.

  • Avoid greasy foods. They are hard to breakdown and can cause severe gallbladder problems

The risk of developing gallstones is higher in case of women. It also increases when an individual is overweight, and as he/she gets older. Hence, along with dietary changes, exercise is important too. Consider practicing yoga.
