The most common gallbladder issue is gallstones. And the most common mainstream medical solution is surgical cholecystectomy, or gallbladder removal. The gallbladder is a small pear shaped organ located just under the liver in the upper right side of your abdomen. It is a vital part of your digestive system, not a throw-away unnecessary organ. According to Dr. David Williams, “… [gallbladder’s] function is to receive bile that's generated by the liver, concentrate and mix it with mineral salts and enzymes, and then release the bile into the small intestine. The enzymes added by the gallbladder are essential to the proper digestion of fat. If your gallbladder is malfunctioning in some way, then it's a certainty that your fat digestion is impaired.” Often, a weakened liver is the source of the gallbladder’s problems that usually manifest as gallstones. A weak liver is not so uncommon in our toxic and stressful culture, to put it mildly. Fortunately, there are non-surgical solutions to gallbladder stones.
