Gall Bladder Cleanse Tea
A good, tasty mild cleansing blend to help with gall bladder irritation, inflammation and flare ups. Will help balance and tone as well as detox the gall bladder. You can detox your gall bladder without having pain or prominent concerns, it will serve a good purpose to your liver as you will be removing the unhealthy fats present. The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ situated directly under the liver in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. Its main function is to collect and concentrate the bile that the body uses to digest fats.
Problems with the gall bladder and biliary system are very common and consist of inflammation of the gall bladder and bile ducts, muscular spasms and/or poor contraction of the gall bladder wall, stones forming in the gall bladder and/or bile ducts and obstruction to the free flow of bile.
The process of bile production is a taxing biochemical process. The body has developed the gall bladder to store bile that has been recovered from the bowel to be recycled - thus saving the liver from having to produce new batches. Therefore, the gall bladder is vitally important as it takes a lot of workload off the liver. If the gall bladder is diseased and dysfunctional - it is often due to the fact that the liver is under stress and is also dysfunctional. A dysfunctional or over taxed liver will tend to produce toxic unhealthy bile.
Bile is a substance made in the liver cells (hepatocytes) consisting of water, electrolytes, bile acids, cholesterol, phospholipids and bilirubin. It is a fat emulsifying agent helping to keep cholesterol levels in check. it also assists with absorption of certain nutrients, namely the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
Gall Bladder problems are caused by production of toxic bile by the liver, inadequate production of bile by the liver, sluggish flow of bile, excess amounts of cholesterol in the bile resulting in stone formation, infection of the gall bladder, poor dietary choices with excess consumption of fatty foods, dairy products and fried foods, the hormonal changes of pregnancy, the oral contraceptive pill and some types of hormone replacement therapy and/or some types of blood disorders.
Symptoms of gall bladder disease (attacks are indigestion and nausea after eating especially fatty foods), vomiting attacks and the most prominent being pain in the right upper abdomen, which often radiates to the right shoulder and back.
This tea blend is highly recommended especially if you are dieting, fasting or reducing your fat intake. Works very, very well and is highly effective against pain. It has a good flavor and a drop of honey may be added for sweetness.
Tea can be consumed at the onset of gall bladder pain and pressure. Herbs in this remedy will help reduce pain and will decrease the sharpness of pain spasms. It is best to drink this tea as hot as you can stand it without danger of scalding. It is easiest made by preparing a full tea pot and consuming throughout the day or night or whenever your gall bladder decides to act up. Continue to take to tea blend for at least 2 (two) days even after your "gall bladder attack" has passed; this helps to push the toxins and sludge through the system making them easier to pass.
Sometimes crystals precipitate out of the bile to form gallstones. Generally speaking the gall bladder becomes diseased or dysfunctional because the liver is producing unhealthy bile. The bile is either toxic or contains excess amounts of fat and bacteria. The majority of gallstones stay in the gallbladder and cause no symptoms. However, if a stone moves it may obstruct the neck of the gall bladder or common bile duct giving rise to severe pain in the upper right side of the abdomen. A stone in the common bile duct will frequently cause jaundice. Jaundice is a condition in which the skin and the eyes become yellow due to accumulated bile pigment.
Acute cholecystitis is when the gallbladder becomes distended and inflamed often with resulting localized peritonitis. It usually follows obstruction to the neck of the gallbladder or cystic duct by an impacted stone. Acute cholecystitis classically affects females in the 20 to 40 year age group but may occur at any age. The pain in the central and right upper abdomen is continuous and severe and increases in intensity over 24 hours. It frequently radiates around to the back and may be associated with nausea and vomiting. Fever is usual. The presence of gallstones and acute cholecystitis can usually be confirmed by an ultrasound scan. Repeated attacks of cholecystitis may occur if the condition remains untreated.
This tea is not an alternative to sugery. If gallstones are present, they may have to be removed. There is not a natural alternative to gall bladder surgery, this blend can however, be used after surgery to help tone and regulate digestion.
I use this blend myself and have had much success with any pain or inflammation that may occur. Gall bladder flare ups can be stress induced and I keep this tea handy when I feel any slight irritation. Gall bladder ailments are also hereditary - this blend was composed by my Grandmother and has worked for many years and for many people.
