If you are suffering due to stones in your gallbladder, most probably after sometime when all treatments would have failed your doctor would advise you to remove your gallbladder. How simple is that for your doctor to pass this noxious advice to you! But it would be you who will suffer throughout your life after losing a vital organ.
The gallbladder is a small pouch-like organ reside underneath the liver. It stores bile. Bile is a liquid produced by the liver, to HELP DIGEST FATS. Through bile ducts, bile passes from the liver to gallbladder. Bile ducts are a series of channels. Besides this gallbladder also performs key tasks such as: Enables absorption of fat-soluble antioxidants and vitamins A, E, D and K. Assists the removal of cholesterol from your body. Assists the removal of toxins that have been broken down by the liver.
Bile is stored in the gallbladder. Over time it becomes concentrated, which makes it better to digest fats efficiently. GALLBLADDER RELEASES BILE into DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WHEN IT IS NEEDED.
Gallstones are small stones usually made up of cholesterol, that form in the gallbladder. When chemical makeup of bile, inside the gallbladder, is disturbed gallstones are made. In most of the cases the level of cholesterol is too high in the bile, this causes excess cholesterol to form stones. In most cases, these stones do not cause any symptoms and do not need treatment (do not need any treatment is the wrong medical approach). However, when a gallstone is trapped in a duct inside the gallbladder, it can trigger sudden intense pain. This painful sensation may last from 1 – 5 hours, is called biliary colic.
Some people get complications due to gallstones such as persistent pain, jubilance or fever, this is due to inflammation of the gallbladder. This condition is called gallbladder disease or Cholecystitis.
Now imagine your gallbladder is removed on the advice of your doctor. No more gallbladder no more stones, no more pain and no more your body will be able to digest fats. No more your body is able to absorb fat-soluble vital antioxidants vitamin A, E, D & K. No more your body is able to remove toxins. Ask from your doctor which pharmaceutical drug he has had now to give you so that you can digest fat after eating food or drinking milk etc. or to support your body to perform vital tasks mentioned above? Practically your doctor has nothing in his medicine chest. This is the case of ‘out of the frying pan into the fire’.
If your medical doctor had been intelligent enough, he would have tested your cholesterol level at regular intervals after having your initial case history and parental medical history. In this way by keeping your cholesterol level at bay, your chances of having gallstones could have been minimised.
But never mind common-sense is not very common these days!
Don’t worry! You can survive without your gallbladder but you are exposed to the risk of developing fatty liver, experiencing frequently indigestion issues, and suffering from deficiencies essential fatty acids and fat-soluble nutrients.
Your liver continues to manufacture bile, but there is no longer gallbladder to store it or concentrate it. Therefore, bile continually slowly drops down into the intestines. If you eat a fatty meal, you will not be able to secrete an ample amount of bile into your intestines, therefore the fat will be very poorly digested. This means you will experience symptoms of diarrhoea, bloating, nausea or indigestion.
Due to not digesting fat, you will not be able to digest essential fatty acids, including omega 3 and omega 6 as well. You’ll have a hard time absorbing fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins D, E, A and K. There is a lot of fat-soluble antioxidants in vegetables: lycopene, lutein and carotenoids are all fat. In the absence of adequate bile, you will not be absorbing enough of these lifesaving nutrients from foods. If you consider taking any of the above-mentioned nutrients in supplement form, without sufficient bile you will not absorb them well.
Don’t you worry! if your medical doctor is helpless after your cholecystectomy (surgery to remove the gallbladder), then there are numerous options in Complementary & Alternative Medicines (CAM) practice. You can still manage to live normal healthy life. Speak to your nutritionist, homeopath, naturopath, micro DNA therapist or orthomolecular medicines practitioner now. These are the people who you need most, and who will help you most – now!
