I’ve been playing with keto off and on for over a year. After a heavy protein and fat Christmas meal I had a gallbladder attack, even with taking a very good digestive enzymes supplement. I’ve been dealing with it for 12 days. Been doing a lot of research because I come from a medical background and know they will want to cut it out if I go to the ER. I started fasting (only liquids allowed including blended vegetable soups) Friday and adding ACV. Was completely miserable Saturday.
Here’s what’s helped me. I found that 1 T of Epsom salt in a cup of water will relax the ducts and relieve the pressure and pain. I was skeptical. But after not sleeping for two nights and being quite unwell the entire day, I tried it. Literally, within minutes (5-10) the pain went from a 7 to a 2! And I slept well that night.
Also recommended :. Beet juice, 1/2 lemon to warm water, chamomile tea, apples, apple juice, or apple cider vinegar. I did the Epsom salt for 2 days and added the other recommendations too.
I also used a castor oil pack over the right side of abdomen along with rubbing diluted grapefruit, rosemary, and On Guard essential oils throughout the day.
Then, I came upon a book called, The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush by Andreas Moritz. My library had a copy. Luckily, I was already prepped and could begin the flush Monday. I again was skeptical, but there was nothing that could be harmful from trying it for me. I’ve been doing colonic hydrotherapy for a few months already (which is recommended for any type of a flush). I felt pretty unwell yesterday through the flush. So, was still on the fence last night. I did pass about 50+ green globs. However, I awoke this morning feeling fantastic! My digestion has improved. My pain is between a 1-2. I ate broth and an avocado this morning and feel energized and alert.
I realize some people are skeptical of one if not more of the things I’ve tried. I’ve been doing all this under a well respected doctor’s care and my health is improving. Having digestive issues for over 20 years has taken me down some interesting roads. This flush I will do again. And continue my path on a keto diet. And as I have a lot of travel coming up, will pack 2 T of Epsom salt individually in case of another attack. I wish you all the best on your journey!
