What do you recommend to dissolve a gallbladder stone?
Ayurveda considers gallbladder function and its basis in the digestive process to primarily be related to activity of the Pitta dosha. When we consider Pitta energy in the body, we’re concerned with the relative strength or imbalance of the digestive fire in the stomach and associated organs. People who have too much fire in their digestive system often do so on account of their constitution, their consumption of animal proteins, their consumption of too many spicy, sour, or pungent foods—or too much food in general—their consumption of too much coffee and alcohol, as well as their participation in excessive amounts of physical activity and sex. People who have excessive fire in their body typically experience breakouts on their skin, indigestion or other acidic digestive distress, profuse sweating, and other indications of heat.
You may experience this type of digestive imbalance, or your stones may be indicative of a different type of bodily imbalance. If the above scenario describes your own situation, then you will of course benefit from lessening the heat in your system through a vegetarian diet, an avoidance of coffee and alcohol, and practicing more calming activities like soothing yoga postures instead of vigorous workout regimens. However, a precise diagnosis of and prescription for lessening the symptoms of your stones will best be aided by a targeted herbal regimen as prescribed to you by a trained Ayurvedic practitioner. To learn more about Ayurvedic practitioners, you can go to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
