Remember the Grapefruit Diet from the 80s? Does that date me . . . . Well the grapefruit diet isn’t actually bad. . . . you just need to eat more than just grapefruit. Grapefruits are in season right now and they are great for the gallbladder! They regulate Qi and resolve phlegm. In other words, they keep things moving and get rid of the junk in your body. Plus- when you peel the skin back on a grapefruit, doesn’t that smell just make you calmer? That’s calming the liver and the gallbladder and making you a nicer person!
In western medicine, grapefruits contain a substance called limonoid which also helps dissolve gallstones- win, win!
