Re: Is it possible to HEAL A GALL BLADDER?
Since attempting to figure out what exactly is wrong with me (severe URQ, back, epigastric pain) and not getting any answers, I have read quite a bit about gallbladders and gallbladder dysfunction. There is some evidence that if you catch it early and you really, truly work at getting healthy, you can at least reverse your symptoms. That is if you don't have stones or severe damage. After you have those, you're pretty much screwed until you get the gallbladder out. Limit fats, exercise, increase your intake of water, take milk thistle and peppermint capsules, and first off do a colon cleanse with one of the over the counter colon cleanse products if you are constipated. There are completely legitimate mainstream medical studies that show that women who exercise have a significantly lower risk of having gallbladder surgery than those who don't. So, take that for what it's worth (I'm looking into all sorts of alternatives since all my tests are normal and I'm in no man's land!). Most people don't pay much attention to their gallbladder until it is so far gone that there is no hope; that's one reason docs don't have many alternatives to surgery; most people have gone past that initial pain here and there stage. Best wishes to you, maybe you can get your gallbladder healthy. If you're not in any acute situation, it doesn't hurt to try safe things. Don't try that stupid flush, though! Olive oil in, olive oil out!
