Gallstones can be removed without surgery.*
The gallbladder is a small pouch that sits just under the liver. The gallbladder stores bile produced by the liver. After meals, the gallbladder is empty and flat, like a deflated balloon. Before a meal, the gallbladder may be full of bile and about the size of a small pear.
In response to signals, the gallbladder squeezes stored bile into the small intestine through a series of tubes called ducts. Bile helps digest fats, but the gallbladder itself is not essential. Removing the gallbladder in an otherwise healthy individual typically causes no observable problems with health or digestion yet there may be a small risk of diarrhea and fat malabsorption.

OF CHRONIC GALLBLADDER PROBLEMS
People can go for years with digestive symptoms and never realize
that they may be related to a gallbladder problem. That's because
they are so inter-related with other digestive symptoms. Constipation
is one of the most commonly missed ones. The list provided here may
be related to gallbladder but bear in mind that it could also be something
else. The first four on the list are most indicative of gallbladder
issues. It is not necessary to have all or many symptoms to have gallbladder
problems but the more you have from this list, the more confirmation
you have that the gallbladder is involved. See Protocols For Saving Your Gallbladder. See This Tea Dissolves Kidney Stones.

OF GALLBLADDER ATTACK
NOTE: If you are in severe pain, and particularly if your symptoms
are accompanied by fever SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY. The following
symptoms are typical of a gallbladder ATTACK.
to severe pain under the right side of the rib cage
pain to the back or to the right shoulder
upper abdominal pain (biliary colic)
are often at night
often occur after overeating
often but not always follows a meal that includes fats or grease
may be worse with deep inhalation
can last from 15 minutes to 15 hours.
Symptoms of a gallbladder attack are often caused by gallbladder stones.
A stone may block the neck of the gallbladder or get stuck in a bile
duct inhibiting the flow of bile or possibly causing a back-up of
bile. However, short of causing an actual attack, stones may be present
for years and never cause any symptoms at all. Biliary pain can occur
in about a third of the gallstone patients (which leaves two thirds
NOT experiencing pain) and sometimes the gallstone symptoms are difficult
to differentiate from that of dyspepsia. The gallstones can impair
the functioning of the gallbladder, however, which can result in any
of the common gallbladder symptoms.
Gallbladder symptoms can look and feel the same with or without stones.
Therefore, all of the symptoms listed on this page can accompany gallstones
and gallstones can also be asymptomatic meaning you do not have any
symptoms. These are called silent gallstones.
THE CASE OF KNOWN GALLSTONES TRY THIS
1/2 cup of Olive Oil, with the juice of 1 Whole Lemon midway between
breakfast and lunch. Chug-a-lug this mixture and lay down immediately
as severe nausea often occurs when the gallbladder constricts to expel
gallstones. Repeat procedure once a day for up to four days in the
case of serious gallstone accumulation. Stop the procedure when nausea
no longer occurs as this indicates gallstones are no longer present.
Expelled gallstones may appear in the stool as small flat disks. NOTE: Meat eaters tend to have issues with the appendix. Vegetarians tend to have issues with the gall bladder. See Protocols For Saving Your Gallbladder.
