Flushing the Gallbladder

Monday, 13 September 2010 08:58 AM

Question: Are there ways to flush or clean out the gallbladder other than surgery?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Studies have shown that curcumin flushes out the bile ducts and gallbladder by increasing bile flow and stimulating contraction of the gallbladder. It is also a very powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

Studies have shown that people who frequently have gallstones commonly have low magnesium intake. Take 500 mg of magnesium citrate/malate twice a day.

R-lipoic acid is a powerful natural antioxidant that, in particular, protects the liver, and this will reduce inflammation in the draining bile ducts. The dose is 50 mg twice a day. Eating a healthy diet that is free of fried foods and omega-6 fats and oils will greatly improve the problem.
