About 1 in 12 people have gall stones, although many do not even know it as no symptoms have cropped up yet. About 80% of gall stones are solid deposits of cholesterol that form in your gall bladder or nearby bile ducts. This occurs because too much cholesterol is eaten in the diet. While you do need a small amount of cholesterol for good health, your liver produces all the cholesterol your body needs. That means you never need to get cholesterol from your diet. When you do eat cholesterol, in the form of animal foods (meat, chicken, fish, dairy etc...) your body has a very tough time digesting it. The excess cholesterol can clog your arteries and overload the liver and gall bladder. When enough cholesterol deposits form, you may very well be the recipient of gall stones.
Even though you may have gall stones and not know it, eventually, you will probably experience pain in the upper middle or upper right abdomen and possibly even nausea. For some people, the pain can be incredibly intense and frequent, causing a severe disruption in their lives. It may occur 1-2 hours after eating (especially fatty foods), but may also occur at other times, even at night. The attacks can last from 15-30 minutes up to several hours. Other signs and symptoms include indigestion (nausea, gas, bloating and sometimes abdominal pain) which is usually magnified after eating foods high in cholesterol. Complications from gall stones can be serious, and even fatal, if left untreated. So, it is best to get tested for them by your doctor right away if you feel any symptoms.
There are two steps to naturally flush gall stones out of the body. First, you have to stop eating cholesterol in your diet. You can take any amount of medication, any herbal formula, even have your gall bladder removed, as about 750,000 Americans do every year, but you will still be accumulating cholesterol through your diet. That is why people continue to have pain even after their surgery or even in spite of medication and so on. The root of the problem is your diet and you have to start there. Once you cut cholesterol out of your diet, you will notice a reduction in symptoms almost immediately. Typically a detox diet is best for this kind of situation.
The second step is to take herbal formulations that are well known for their ability to flush gall stones out of the body. These are herbs that work synergistically together to dissolve and flush gall stones safely and effectively. For example, Barberry bark is one of the best remedies for correcting liver function and promoting the flow of bile. It is indicated when there is an inflammation of the gall bladder or in the presence of gall stones. When jaundice occurs due to a congested state of the liver, Barberry is also indicated. Studies show that the main ingredient berberine, activates the macrophages (literally, "big eaters"), white blood cells that devour harmful microorganisms. An organic, high quality herbal formula in conjunction with a proper diet can successfully flush gall stones out of the body and help prevent them from ever returning.
