There are many gallbladder attack remedies out there, most of them are home diet-related remedies.
Gallbladder attacks are often caused by gallstones that have reached the size of just under a centimetre. Gallstones are small pebble-like structures that can grow in your gallbladder. Sometimes, these gallstones can even get obstructed in the duct that connects your liver to your small intestines. When gallstones get stuck in this tube, you will feel pain for 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
The pain you feel will concentrate in your upper right abdominal area, and it can spread to your chest. However, in some cases, the pain can even radiate to your back and between your shoulder blades. The pain will either feel like a dull ache or a sharp pain.
Placing a heating pad over your abdomen may help relieve some of the pain. Leave the heating pad on for up to an hour and reheat if necessary.
There are also some foods that you can eat to reduce your gallbladder attack symptoms
1) Eat more lean meats and try to avoid red meats
2) Avoid eating fatty foods. Gallbladder attacks often occur after fatty meals
3) Opt for low-fat dairy products, such as skim milk and yogurts.
4) Increase your fibre intake gradually. Eat more refined grains such as whole-wheat pastas, breads, and bran.
5) Use more non-animal sourced oils to cook, such as vegetable and olive oils
6) Eat foods high in iron, such as spinach, oysters, mussels, and sun-dried tomatoes
7) Eat foods high in omega-3. Omega-3 helps prevent cholesterol buildup in your bile. Fish is a great source of omega-3. You can also opt for omega-3 fortified foods or omega-3 supplements (fish oil capsules).
8) Foods high in vitamin B may be beneficial. Include more vegetables in your diet. Vegetables especially high in vitamin B6 are broccoli, bell peppers, asparagus, green peas, and yams. Sunflower seeds are also a great way to add more vitamin B6 into your salad.
9) Antioxidant rich foods and beverages like blueberries, tomatoes, and green tea. Antioxidants help remove free radicals in your body.
10) Don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
Try eating 4-6 smaller meals a day versus 3 large ones. Make sure you don’t skip breakfast. Studies show that those who don’t have regular eating habits are more at risk for developing gallstones. Exercising regularly is also beneficial in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
