What foods should be avoided and eaten for gall stones?

The deposition of stones in any form is indicative of a particular pattern of response to stressors. To "treat the cause" it is necessary to rebalanced the body's response pattern. Although diet, lifestyle and supplements may help in the short term, they will not alter the response pattern which will continue to deposit stones. Seeking the consult of a health care practitioner who can address these underlying patterns with homeopathy or other similar therapies will be beneficial in prevention.

Since most gallstones are made of cholesterol, it is often helpful to rebalanced dietary intake to minimize "bad fats" and emphasize "good fats" with fish oils and plant oils high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Also, continue to drink at least 1/2 your body weight daily in pure/unfiltered water to aid in elimination. Keep in mind, the majority of cholesterol in your body is made by the liver in response to underlying inflammation and not necessarily a result of what you put in your mouth.

Although you may be able to palliate some symptoms with diet, it is not the entire solution. Both the liver and gallbladder will benefit from a long term balanced diet which includes a healthy percentage of dark leafy green vegetables such as Swiss chard, kale, romaine lettuce and even, dandelion greens! A trained health care practitioner could gather additional history from you to develop a detailed treatment plan to meet your needs
