Gallbladder and Liver Detoxification
Carduus is a homeopathic combination primarily for gallbladder conditions with secondary effects on the liver. It is used for acute, sub-acute and chronic diseases of the liver and gallbladder with emphasis on gallbladder conditions, constipation, stasis of the portal vein, hemorrhoids, hepatopathy with constipation and difficulty in fat digestion.
Carduus works by improving bile secretion, which in turn improves fat digestion, relieves constipation from increased intestinal peristalsis and helps remove small gallstones (gravel). It also has anti-spasmodic effects and stimulates the blood flow in the portal vein.
Carduus may have a mild laxative effect. Carduus is primarily for gallbladder conditions, while A-Hepatica is primarily for liver conditions. Clinically, for liver/gallbladder conditions with constipation use Carduus and without constipation use A-Hepatica.
An excellent protocol for high blood fat values and for detoxification of the liver/gallbladder system is 30 drops of Cardunara combined with 35 drops of Carduus and 20 drops of A-Hepatica in water three times daily.
