gallblader stones


Gallbladder stones, also known as gallstones, are solid formations that develop in the gallbladder, a small pear-shaped organ located beneath the liver. These stones are composed of various substances, primarily cholesterol or bilirubin, a pigment produced during the breakdown of red blood cells.


Gallstones can range in size from tiny grains to larger pebbles, and a person can have one or multiple stones in their gallbladder. They can be categorized as cholesterol stones, pigment stones, or a combination of both.


The exact cause of gallstones is not fully understood, but certain factors increase the risk of their formation. These include obesity, a high-fat diet, rapid weight loss, family history, age (especially over 40), gender (women are more prone), certain medical conditions (such as cirrhosis and diabetes), and certain medications.


In many cases, gallstones do not cause symptoms and are discovered incidentally during tests for other conditions. However, if a gallstone blocks the bile duct, it can lead to intense abdominal pain, known as biliary colic. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), and fever if an infection occurs.


In some cases, medication can be prescribed to dissolve smaller cholesterol stones. Official gallstone treatment often involves surgical removal of the gallbladder, known as cholecystectomy. This procedure is commonly performed using “minimally invasive” techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery. Keep in mind, however, that this surgery is irreversible and after that, you will not be able to eat and drink many things you were used to even for the rest of your life. 


Below are some other techniques that you should at least try, before permanently crippling yourself by removing organs from your precious body.
