|Home Remedies for Gallstones
The main problems which afflict the gall-bladder are an inflammatory condition known as cholecystitis and the presence of
gallstones in the gall-bladder. The latter condition is called cholelithiasis. The former often leads to the latter. Gallstones are
usually caused by disturbances in the composition of the bile.
The main symptom of gall-bladder disease is acute or intermittent pain in the abdomen. Indigestion, gas, a feeling of fullness
after meals, constipation, and nausea are the other usual symptoms. Intolerance to fats, dizziness, jaundice, anaemia, acne,
and other lesions may also occur.
|The main cause of gall-bladder disorders is over nutrition resulting from excessive intake of refined carbohydrates, especially
sugar. Over nutrition also leads to increased cholesterol secretion. Meals rich in fats may cause an attack of gall-Madder pain
or gallstone colic. Other causes are chronic constipation, poor health, hereditary factors, and stress. The Chinese relate
gall-bladder disorders with the emotion of anger.
