Gallstones can be a pain, both literally and figuratively. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing these pesky little things, you know that they can make life miserable. But fear not, my friend! In this guide, we’ll show you some hilarious ways to get relief from gallstones.
What Are Gallstones?
Before we dive into how to treat gallstones, let’s first talk about what they are. Gallstones are small bits of hardened material that form in your gallbladder. They’re typically made up of cholesterol or bilirubin (the stuff that gives your poop its brown color). These stones range in size from tiny grains of sand to golf ball-sized monsters (and trust us when we say you do NOT want those).
Symptoms of Gallstones
So how do you know if you have gallstones? Some people may not experience any symptoms at all (lucky them!), but others may experience one or more of the following:
- Intense pain in the upper right abdomen
- Nausea and vomiting
- Jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes)
- Fever and chills
If any of these sound familiar to you, it’s time to take action!
Prevention is Key
The best way to avoid getting gallstones in the first place is by making lifestyle changes such as eating healthy foods and staying active (not just binging on Netflix…unfortunately). Here are some tips for preventing future stone formations:
- Eat a low-fat diet: Reducing your intake of fatty foods will help decrease bile production which results in fewer chances for stone formation.
- Maintain healthy weight: Researchers believe obesity could increase your likelihood for developing stones so opt for shedding off those extra pounds.
3.Exercise regularly : Physical activity like swimming, biking or brisk walking helps maintain a healthy weight avoiding obesity and other diseases.
- Stay hydrated: Drinking enough water each day (8-10 cups) will also help prevent gallstones from forming.
So what can you do if you already have gallstones? Here are some highly unconventional but funny (and effective!) tips to help alleviate your symptoms:
1. Use the Power of Art
“They say art is therapeutic”, so why don’t we apply it here too! Summon out that inner artist in you and try one of the following creative exercises:
- Draw your stones size on paper or on walls as they grow to ease out frustration.
- Make small statues with clay representing how much uncomfortable=your situation actually is!
- Play with colored dough imagining that you’re beating up your little monsters!
These may sound like child’s play (pun intended), but releasing those pent-up feelings creatively can do wonders both physically and mentally for oneself.
2. Mindful Meditation Practices
Meditation has been proven to be incredibly calming & relaxing to our minds (not even because yoga moms said this..REALLY!). Some mind-body practices might help decrease the severity of gallstone pain like:
- Deep Breathing exercises: A simple practice that could distract your attention off painful sensations while improving breathing rhythm which provides comfort by reducing acidity.
2.Body Scanning was designed specifically for relaxation purposes.Shutting down negative thoughts by visualizing healing images.
3.Visualization practises tends towards bringing calmness by leading yourself into a peaceful place thus creating space for positivity and release pressure/pains.
3. Have Fun With Your Food…Literally!

- Pear and Apple juice: some studies have shown a decrease in the incident of gallstones in people who drink apple or pear juices, especially when consumed as 16-ounce (1/2-liter) servings each day!

3.Turmeric has long been used for its anti-inflammatory properties believed beneficial in conditions related to liver/gallbladder health.
