If you are having a gallbladder attack drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. It’s a quick pain reliever.

You will need:

- Cut your beet into two or three pieces, cut the skin off the ginger and the peel off the lemons and feed everything through a juicer.
Keep this gallbladder juice recipe and drink it every day to keep gallbladder problems at bay or away.
