These are still flowers when it comes to stones in your body. They can scream, or rather you will do it for them, with gallbladder disease. An attack of severe pain in the pit of the stomach, sometimes between the shoulder blades or in the right shoulder indicates that the stone, passing through the bile duct, temporarily clogs it. A persistent blockage of the bile duct is possible, leading to inflammation of the bladder – cholecystitis, and this is already dangerous. This is why 600,000 people have their gallbladder surgically removed each year. A simple solution, but still an operation is an operation.
The gallbladder is just a small sac attached to the liver, but with its ducts, it performs the most important cleansing function. It is a kind of sewer of the body. The same bladder stores bile produced by the liver, an enzyme for dissolving and digesting fats.
In bile, cholesterol is a fat-like substance found in food and in our body. It’s a kind of dangerous dirt. And gallstones can be compared to rust that clogs the bile ducts.
Everyone has heard that cholesterol is bad for the cardiovascular system. Gallstones are 80% composed of it. Oddly enough, most of the cholesterol in stones does not come from food. It is produced by our liver and is essential for many vital functions, including the formation of bile.
Gallstones are as small as sand, but sometimes they grow larger than a ping-pong ball. And every year, a million people, mostly women over 40, are diagnosed with gallstone disease by doctors. All this sand, and even more so stones, are things foreign to our body, and if we have already allowed their appearance (we systematically caught colds, ate irrationally), then we must get rid of them without fail. Today we will talk about how to cleanse the gallbladder and bladder and remove stones.
Analyzing the statistics, scientists noticed that those who do not like physical activity are more likely to suffer from gallstones.
Prevention of hepatic colic is an additional incentive to move more. Jog, bike, swim for at least 30 minutes three to four times a week.
Here are some tips for preventing gallstones. By the way, the inhabitants of Alaska, whose diet is rich in fatty sea fish, almost do not suffer from gallstones.
One medical study compared two groups of Eskimos – traditional seaside lifestyles and those who moved inland and switched to a fish-poor diet. Until recently, cholelithiasis was a rarity in this people. However, in the hospital serving the second group of Eskimos, gallbladder operations became the most frequent surgical intervention. True, these Eskimos not only eat little fish, but also move less and eat a lot of sugar.
Therefore, advice: drink fish oil, its daily portion in addition to the usual diet will give as much omega-3 fatty acids as an Eskimo who eats fish every day gets.
Statistics confirm: the heavier a person, the higher his chances of earning a gallstone
disease. A starvation diet will help you lose a few pounds in a matter of days, but in this case, the risk of gallstones will not decrease, but increase. The fact is that by losing weight, you mobilize your fat reserves, including accumulated cholesterol. It enters the liver, is excreted from it as part of bile into the intestines, and from there – into the toilet. However, as we know, excess cholesterol in bile precipitates in the form of stones. How to be obese? The solution is simple: lose no more than 900 g per week.
By correctly calculating and observing the daily calorie intake, you can slowly but surely lose weight by about 600 g per week.
