BEET RECIPE -Treatment for Gallbladder Pain
1 large organic beet or beetroot (raw) washed (not peeled unless not organic) and finely grated
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbsps flax oil
(Flax oil is by far the superior choice here as it is an omega 3 essential fatty acid, but if you only have extra-virgin cold-pressed olive oil in the house, you can substitute it temporarily.)
Take one teaspoon of mixture every hour throughout the day.
On day two and three make a fresh batch using ¼ of a large beet.
Take one teaspoon of mixture 3 to 4 times a day or more.
Make this mixture to add to your salads after the three day fast frequently or eat alone as above 2 or 3 times a week. This will keep the bile thin and moving. Note: If you cannot get organic beets, be sure to peel them. Otherwise, use the peel as well.
Lemon Water, in acute symptoms:
Juice of one lemon to 1 cup hot water many times a day for several weeks.
Green Soup Recipe for Relief of Gallbladder Pain
One bunch parsley
3 medium zucchini
½ lb. Green beans
5 stalks celery
Steam together for 8-10 minutes.
Or partially steam and boil in ½ cup water.
If you have a steamer, you retain more nutrients and flavor with that method.
Puré in a blender.
This soup provides relief from all sorts of gastric disturbances such as stomach pain, gas, and indigestion. Do not add any fat or salt to this recipe. It can be used anytime but is particularly useful as a three day fast with nothing else but water. It is both nourishing and easy to digest. You can alter the amounts to taste. More beans add more sweetness.
