What causes Gallstones?
We start off our home remedies for gallstones by explaining that gallstones are crystalline compounds usually made up of calcium salts (which makes them visible on X-rays so yippee here, either you have gallstones or you don't), cholesterol (a major component of gallstones) and bile.
Gallstones are produced when there is an imbalance in the components that make up bile acids, which then allows cholesterol particles from these bile acids to group together forming stones.
Some individuals are prone to gallstones because of their genetic make-up, but diet definitely plays a role.
What are the Symptoms of Gallstones?
Indigestion especially after eating a fatty meal.
Steady pain (very unpleasant and uncomfortable) in upper right abdomen, sometimes reaching over the shoulder and spreading down the back.
The sulfates in Epsom salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the body and in doing this it is believed that it allows for the release of the gallstones.
As far as the lemon juice is concerned, medical specialists do not believe that it can help the removal of gallstones, but anecdotal reports claim that the Citric Acid and vitamin C in lemons, once in the blood, can dissolve certain calcifications in the body.
