Gallbladder Disorders

The gallbladder during childhood or even early adulthood very rarely causes a problem. The increasing occurrence of gallstones usually happens from middle age onwards. The gallbladder is a small pear shaped sac situated underneath and attached to the liver by a fibrous tissue (consisting of, containing, or resembling fibres). The removal of the gallbladder by a surgeon is the last resort, but as there is no need for the gallbladder by the digestive system if this is the only cure of the problem then its removal has little known long term effect.

METABOLIC DISORDERS

Gallstones are the principal disorders associated with the gallbladder. Only about 20% of people who have gallstones suffer any symptoms or complications with them. There are 3 types of gallstones, the Cholesterol, the Mixed and the Pigment. The most prolific being the Cholesterol type as most gallstones associated with humans are made up of cholesterol. When the gallbladder tries to eliminate the gallstone from within itself it causes biliary colic (abdominal pain). The ratio of incidence between women sufferers and men sufferers is 4:1 in that order.

The bile ((oil in the diet stimulates the production of lipase (fat digesting enzyme) and bile)) excretion from the gallbladder is sometimes hindered by a gallstone stuck in the outlet. When this happens the trapped bile may irritate and inflame the walls of the gallbladder and infect the bile. This complaint is known as acute cholecystitis (the first symptom being biliary colic, followed by fever and tenderness in the abdomen). With no gallstones present it is very rare that the gallbladder will become inflamed.

During an acute state of inflammation the only thing to be consumed is water for at least 2 days then juice fast for 7 days. The most beneficial juices to use are beet top and pear.

For the removal of gallstones without surgery there is the following biological treatment:

  • 2 weeks before starting the treatment you need to prepare your body for it by eating laxative type foods such as:
    • Figs
    • Pears
    • Psyllium seeds (purchased from a good health shop)
    • Soaked prunes
    • Vegetables

Take a strong laxative, one that a GP recommends the day before starting the treatment so that the bowels are as empty as possible. After elimination due to the laxative, in the morning on an empty stomach take a tablespoon of virgin olive oil followed by about a quarter of a pint of lemon juice mixed with an equal amount of water. Take this formula every morning for at least 2 weeks.

DIET

Follow the health diet with emphasis on the following:

  • 1 tablespoon of virgin olive oil a day (as explained above oil in the diet stimulates the production of bile and lipase)
  • Raw and cooked vegetables
  • Raw egg yolks
  • Raw fruits
  • vegetable juices (pears are highly beneficial to the elimination of gallstones and also have a specific healing effect on the gallbladder)
  • yoghurt
  • Home-made cottage cheese

Only eat small meals, do not overeat.

  • All animal fats and foods made from animal fats
  • Butter
  • Margarine
