MOGA, Terre Haute Center for Medical Education, Indiana University School of Medicine, Terre Haute, IN 47809, USA,, has reviewed (62 references) alternative treatments of gallbladder disease. Abstract: In genetically prone individuals, a sedentary lifestyle and a diet rich in refined sugars can lead to an abnormal bile composition, altered gut microflora, and hyperinsulinaemia, with resulting gallstone formation. A large percentage of patients have continued digestive problems after cholecystectomy. Herbal medicines such as turmeric, oregon grape, bupleurum, and coin grass may reduce gallbladder inflammation and relieve liver congestion. Dietary changes, particularly the elimination of offending foods is often successful. Regular aerobic exercise has beneficial effects on hyperinsulinaemia. Dietary changes that lower plasma insulin levels, such as change in dietary fats and substitution of unrefined carbohydrates for refined ones, may also be helpful.
