Turmeric is widely noted a spice or supplement to help with gallbladder and gallstone symptoms. The turmeric spice is often used in curry dishes and mustards, giving it a vibrant orangish-yellow color. Curcumin is the beneficial component in turmeric that decreases inflammation, destroys liver cancer cells, and most importantly for the gallbladder, dissolves gallstones.

Your body can best use turmeric when it is eaten along with black pepper. You can also take a daily turmeric supplement.


Turmeric for Gallstones and Gallbladder Help | Gallbladder and Turmeric — 5 Comments

  1. Am confused about turmeric and gallstones. Some web articles such as this recommend it. Others(especially medical sites/NIH/Assoc. for Alternative Medicine) say it is contraindicated and can make gallbladder disease worse. Even Dr. Andrew Wiel’s website contains contradictory advice. Am already taking turmeric supplements for the healthful benefits but wondering if I should continue. I have a diagnosis of gallstones.

  2. I do not have a formal diagnosis of Gallstones but have all the symptoms, am female and have a family history. That said at the very first sign I started with ACV and apple juice. That didn’t completely do the trick after a few days, so I added a hot antioxidant tea (primary ingredient Turmeric) and that did the trick for me. I got it at bulkfoods.com, product code 42008. And I even like the taste of it. Good luck.

  3. If you have gallstones you have to be careful. Start with a little and then work your way up to more and more. Keep us posted on your progress!
