Cleanses have become increasingly popular. Using a cleanse for you gallbladder, to remove the body of gallstones, is something that many people have started to do. The question is do gallbladder cleanses work? That in many ways has yet to be determined.
Most gallbladder cleanses involve eating or drinking some combination of olive oil, herbs along with some types of fruit juices over usually several hours. Those who believe in the effectiveness of gallbladder cleanses claim that they will help the body break up gallstones. The broken pieces will be passed through via stool. While olive oil has been shown to be an effective laxative, there is no evidence that olive oil works as an effective treatment for your gallstones. While many people report see something in their stool it is been shown to be simply bits of oil, juice or other materials.
However using gallbladder cleanses does not come without risk. Users have reported nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain while using cleanses. The amount of risk and side effects depends on the ingredients used.
If you are not experiencing any symptoms then your gallstones do not require treatment. In the event that you experience symptoms of gallstones then make sure and discuss treatment with your personal physician or medical professional.
