Why are beets healthy?

Well, beet is an excellent food for cleansing the gallbladder and liver. Slowed production and obstructed flow of bile can cause unbearable pain - ask me I know. Beet salad eaten hourly during a gallbladder attack is said to improve gallbladder pain and the immediate symptoms. I think it's also a bit less dramatic than the traditional gallbladder flush using lemon juice, epson salts and olive oil.

Beet thins the bile and keep it flowing as well as softening any gallstones. This enables the biliary sludge or stones to be more readily passed.

Below is a recipe for "beet salad". You can also add this beet salad to your regular salad. Pressed beet juice is also very good for cleansing the liver and gallbladder.

Beet Recipe (Beetroot Recipe) - taken from www.icim.ie/Healthy_Eating/gallstone_diet.htm

  • 1 large raw organic beet or beetroot
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (lemons are alkalizing and stimulate the liver)
  • 2 Tbsps flax oil

Grate the beet and mix with the lemon juice and flax oil. Do not peel the beet before preparation unless it's not organic. Try to only eat organic produce because the pesticides on non-organic fruit and vegetables cause extra burden to the already stressed liver.

Take one teaspoon of the beetroot salad mixture every hour throughout the day.

On day two and three make a fresh batch using ¼ of a large beet. Take one teaspoon of mixture 3 to 4 times a day or more.

Whether you are suffering from gallbladder disease or not, start consuming beets regularly. Juiced beets are great and you can add sliced raw beets to any salad. Cooked beets are also a fabulous side dish or main meal.
