Is there an enema that is done for Gall Bladder problems like stones etc?

Gall bladder stones start as fine gravelly stones but over time they gradually develop into bigger stones as they get accumulated in the gall bladder. The main cause for gall bladder stones is digestive disturbances caused to due intake of too much of fat and carbohydrates. Apart from this, other factors known to contribute to gall bladder stones include poor health, genetic factors, stress, spinal disorders, muscular tension and even obesity. Gallbladder stones manifest themselves in problems in digestion, flatulence, a feeling of nausea and even constipation. Apart from this patients even complain of dizziness, anemia, lesions and hemorrhoids.

The most important thing in the treatment of gall bladder stones is intake of plenty of water so that the stones may be washed out in the initial stage itself. Your diet should include plenty of fresh vegetables and vegetable juices such as carrots, grapefruit, lemon and the juice of grape. Olive oil is said to be beneficial and should be consumed daily. You should avoid all refined carbohydrates and sugars found in alcoholic and carbonated drinks as well as desserts such as cakes and ice creams. Exercising regularly helps to treat gall bladder stones and there are a number of beneficial exercises and yoga asanas that can help you. Yoga asanas that are recommended to keep the gall bladder in good health are: sarvangasana, paschimot-tasanana, shalabhasana, dhanurasana and bhujangasana. In addition to all this, you can apply fomentations to the stomach (hot or cold), to abet the circulation of blood in the abdominal region and thus improve production and circulation of bile. Enema using warm water is sometimes recommended to those suffering from gall bladder stone, especially if you are suffering from constipation. This causes the gall bladder to naturally expel the debris accumulated, including gall-stones or pre-stone sludge. This should be done in 2 stages - first with just water to remove the debris and then a nutritional enema which has to be held in for sometime for best results. When you are conducting the enema, lie on your left side and let the water enter you slowly with your right knee bent towards the chest and your left leg extended straight. Repeat this after 15 minutes with your right side. It is recommended to flush out your gall bladder and liver regularly even if you don't have a stone any more, since this helps to flush out all the toxins and keeps your system healthy and clear of debris. However, if none of these methods work, you have to get a surgery done to remove the stones.
