Gall Bladder Disease

The gall bladder is a hollow inactive organ supplying bile to the digestive tract that is mainly used to emulsify fats and oils. When the liver is constantly  stagnant, sediment often settles out of the bile and forms accumulations that resemble stones, sand or mud in the gall bladder.

Signs of Gallbladder Disease– Symptoms may indicate gall Bladder is under  functioning

  1. Pain when pressing on the gallbladder, which is directly under the last rib on the right on the same plane as one’s nipple. This is usually due to gallbladder “sludge” (thick bile).
  2. Stone on a gallbladder ultrasound.
  3. Greasy stools that are loose and tend to float to the top of the toilet bowl. This indicates improper fat absorption.

This is a great proactive prevention step but most people don’t worry about their gallbladder until they have a problem. Unfortunately, by that time exercise alone is not going to cut it..

Clean up your diet- stop eating sugars, reduce or eliminate the grains and eliminate all fluids but water. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables!
