can be both very painful and frightening. It
is easy to understand why so many people opt
for gallbladder surgery after experiencing
even one gallbladder attack. But there are
both natural supplements and natural foods
that can manage gallbladder disease to help
prevent both surgery and the discomfort of

story with gallbladder disease didn
't start there.
Since 2001 I have been exclusively devoted
to holistically supporting gallbladder
disease because of my own pain and struggle.
I suffered from stomachaches from early
childhood. Frequent trips to doctors brought
no results; we tried everything we could.
The pain could get so severe that I would
eventually just stop eating for three days
to get relief. Doctors did all sorts of
tests, but never any gallbladder tests.
However, it wasn
t until I tried a liver/gallbladder formula
that I got any lasting relief. Thus started
my search for natural products and the
proper gallbladder diet.
Just cutting out fatty foods doesn'
t do the trick; you need a proper diet and
supplements that address your particular

Holistic Solution to Gallbladder Disease
kit that I use now is a more targeted
version than that original formula,
addressing the underlying digestive issues
that support gallbladder function.
It assumes that your digestion is not
working and therefore borrows the
necessary ingredients such as bile salts
and digestive enzymes while you work on
improving bile secretion and flow.

ATTACK SYMPTOMS may
include one or more of the following:
chest pain below rib cage
in the back right shoulder blade
gall bladder, which sits just below the rib
cage to the right of the stomach, is very
tender to touch. It can be so painful that it
takes your breath away. You may not be able to
walk without bending over. Sometimes the pain
radiates through to the back shoulder blade on
the right side or in the middle between the
shoulder blades. This is pain from the
gallbladder referring to the back of the
shoulder. This back shoulder blade chest pain
is one of the most common yet unknown symptoms
of a gallbladder disorder. This can come and
go or be constant. It may be sharp,
excruciating or dull. It may also occur
especially at night. A
gallbladder attack will typically last for
one to four hours.
this a gallstone attack or what else could
Pain in the right side of the chest or in the
upper right quadrant (area) of the body can be
due to more than gallbladder problems. The
differential diagnosis should be done by
examination and questioning by your doctor.
If the pain is severe, tests may be done to
rule out stomach, pancreas, liver or
gallbladder. If you have come to this site,
you have some suspicion yourself that your
gallbladder is involved. The questionnaire
provided for you is a helpful indicator since
additional gallbladder symptoms help to
confirm your suspicions. Pain alone is not
usually enough. If the pain is located
mid-center beneath the rib cage, this can also
be gallbladder related. Appendicitis pain can
also be referred to the mid-center.
CAUSES A GALLBLADDER ATTACK
The pain can come from a stone making its way
down the biliary duct or bile tube toward the
duodenum of the small intestine. It can also
be caused by a back up of bile in the
gallbladder (with or without stones) that
causes it to swell from fullness causing
discomfort. Or it can come from an infected
gallbladder itself that becomes inflammed
known as cholecystitis.
That's what's happening in the moment. But the
underlying causes of stone forming or bile
thickening or low-functioning gallbladder are
important to understand in order to heal the
root of the problem. Hypothyroidism is a major
conrtibuting cause to gallbladder disease of
all kinds. The thyroid is responsible for
metabolism and when it is not working
optimally, metabolism in general slows down.
Your digestion may be slower, the bowels may
be slower, gallbladder emptying may be slower,
even thinking may be slower.
allergies are also major contributors to
gallbladder disease. They cause a histamine
release that can cause excessive fluid in the
bile ducts, causing them to back up. It is
important to isolate those specific foods by
eliminating them and introducing them back in
one at a time and watch for reactions, so that
you know just what is causing the problem.
There is an entire page dedicated to just this
and one for hypothyroid as well which you will
want to peruse at your leisure.

and if you need help, you can always schedule

might order blood tests for you to check your
thryoid or to check if insulin resistance is
contributing to high cholesterol and/or to
gallstone formation. Then read up on your

I have put together combinations of products
for specific problems. But they are not enough
without major dietary changes. You can read
the gallbladder diet page from top to bottom
but if you order the 30
Day Gallbladder Solution,
you will get the products you need as well as
a gallbladder menu plan with recipes. These
are simple foods that you can eat even when
everything causes you pain.
If you want to improve your gallbladder
health, you need to educate yourself about the
workings of the gallbladder and whole biliary
system. You need to understand the root of
your problem. Treat this site like a book.
Read it all.
Even if you don't have a gallbladder, if
you're on this page you still have gallbladder
symptoms. If you don't have gallstones, you
could develop them in the future if you
don't make changes now. There is hope. But
it's up to you. Educate yourself. Implement
the necessary changes.
