Gall Stones (Cholesterol) Herbal Treatment - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Herbs have traditionally been used to assist a person to come back to a healthy state of well being. Individual herbs, specifically prescribed for a particular situation may assist the body to come back into balance, thereby allowing a healthy homeostasis to be reinstated as nature intended. The herbalist looks to the whole person, their values and attitudes as well as their circumstances and physical condition along with other aspects of their individuality. This is in marked contrast to the allopathic medicine approach.

Below you will find an example of selected herbs for a particular condition. Herbal support can take a variety of forms and combinations, so it is vital that each person consult directly with a qualified holistic practitioner to gain the full benefit of immunity and health building support.

Liver and gall health depends on the liver operating normally with bile being produced in accordance with the demands of a particular persons dietary habit and stored in the gall bladder to be emptied into the duodenum in the appropriate quantities to deal with the fat content of that diet.

Bile is a strong chemical substance that is alkaline (which is really the opposite to acid) and it is secreted by the Gall Bladder to break down fatty substances so they may be digested. Therefore the acidic content of the stomach chyme (the partially digested food being passed along the gastro intestinal tract) is neutralised by the bile and turned alkaline to allow fat to be broken down.

The emotional profile of a patient suffering from gall bladder problems is a person who has too much fatty food, who eats as a response to stress, and who is often resentful or bitter about certain aspects of their life circumstances or the actions of others. These sorts of emotions can overstimulate the liver and result in chemical changes in the bile being held in the gall bladder.

These chemical changes can result in either fatty substances depositing in the gall bladder forming so called Cholesterol Stones or calcium or other mineral substances depositing out forming Mineral or Calcium Stones.

These stones may end up blocking the bile duct (the tube leading from the gall bladder to the duodenum) and result in extreme pain as the gall bladder fills to its limits and contractions get stronger and stronger attempting to force bile through the blocked duct.

Most folk suffering from gall attacks will already have worked out that fatty food aggravates the problem and will have reduced fat intake. They may however not have realised that milk or chocolate for example, are extremely fatty foods or that the cheese on pizza make them amongst the highest fat meals it is possible to have.

The herbal mixture which is most suited to restoring to normal the chemistry of bile in the bile duct and dissolving Cholesterol Stones is a combination of: Chamomile, Dandelion, Hydrangea, Agrimony, Uva Ursi, Rue, Yellow Dock and Barberry. The Bach Flower Remedies, which I include in this mix, are Willow, Gentian, Agrimony and Rescue Remedy.

This mix is taken at a dose rate of 20 drops three times daily in a full glass of water.

I also recommend that each patient also has three cups of Dandelion Tea daily and reduces dramatically fatty food intake to assist in the whole process.
