How to Dissolve Gallstones and Relieve Gallstone Pain


Hyperthermia or the systematic and controlled warming of the body, is a traditional remedy for gallstone pain and detoxification of the body. Hyperthermia can be induced using steam baths, saunas, and sweat lodges as well as through the use of a heating pad or by taking a hot bath. 

Those who regularly use a sauna, sweat lodge, steam baths experience certain health benefits including:

  • Lower risk of stroke 
  • Reduced pain from gallstones
  • Increased blood flow to the liver
  • Enhanced bile production
  • Natural detoxification of the body

The Use of Saunas to Dissolve Gallstones and Relieve Gallstone Pain

Studies have shown that saunas may enhance gallstone-related pain during the sauna itself, but afterwards, patients tend to feel relief. Sauna sessions should last no longer than 10 to 15 minutes at a time. By increasing blood flow to the liver, increasing bile production, and boosting detoxification of the body, saunas can naturally lead to fewer gallstones and even gallstone dissolution. 

Castor Oil Packs to Get Rid of Gallstones and Gallstone Pain

The use of castor oil with a heating pad is another way to increase body heat in order to heal the gallbladder and promote dissolution of gallstones. Castor oil packs also improve blood flow to the liver, enhanced bile production, and thus, enhancement of the body’s natural detoxification methods. Castor oil packs reliably relieve gallstone pain while simultaneously healing the liver, the gallbladder, and reproductive organs.

Dissolve Gallstones with an Epsom Salts Bath

An epsom salts bath is another reliable way to get rid of gallstone pain and also dissolve gallstones. Epsom salts are made of magnesium sulfate. Add 1 cup of the epsom salts to the bathwater to relax the smooth muscles that are spasming and causing the gallstone pain. Magnesium is easily absorbed by the skin, so let yourself soak for at least 20 minutes. Epsom salts baths can also promote the dissolution of gallstone in the liver as well as the dissolution of kidney stones in the kidneys, ureters, and bladder.

NOTE: Be sure to use a product made with 100% pure magnesium sulfate. Additional ingredients may worsen gallstone pain and add toxins to the body that can worsen gallbladder problems.

Lemon Juice and Garlic Drink to Get Rid of Gallstones

Another important remedy for the treatment of gallstones and gallstone pain involves a warm drink made with lemon juice. Lemons can be used to reduce calcium deposits in both the gallbladder and the kidneys. Following this recipe will not only help you dissolve gallstones naturally, but also prevent the recurrence of gallstone formation in the future.

It also makes the cholesterol more soluble in water for faster elimination from the body. Pectin and terpene in the lemon rind and skin helps get rid of bloating and pain due to gallstones.
