Gallbladder dis-ease

Related to the vitamin C and magnesium posts and comments recently, gall bladder health is an issue I help people with often.

My goal, through educating people, is to help them understand that they can avoid the surgery. In the long run, keeping your gall bladder is a better option. The outdated "it's a vestigial organ, you don't need to keep it" theory is worn out and not in keeping with current research.

A related issue is that once the gall bladder is removed, bile flows constantly into your small intestine. Without high quality enzyme supplementation and dietary changes, the risk of back flow and liver congestion are quite real.

Too much fat is a concern, wrong fat is a concern (like margarine and canola or soy oils) fast food, and lack of fiber, magnesium, calcium/phosphorus metabolism, and lack of other key nutritional factors.

This is similar to the faulty theory driving the use of acid blocking pharmaceuticals.

We offer a terrific and effective gall bladder health program, FMI: contact us.
