Cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder. Acute cholecystitis is often caused by a bacterial infection; chronic cholecystitis by gallstones.
Treatment Plan for Cholecystitis
Herbal treatment for acute conditions include immune stimulants and cooling antibacterial herbs. For chronic conditions, herbs containing phytosterols that gently stimulate the bile flow and help break down gallstones are useful.
After 10 days of the kitcharee diet, a macrobiotic diet with low oil intake and plenty of white rice should be followed.
