A gallbladder attack has become a fairly commonplace occurrence due to the modern diet and lifestyle. The good news is that you can protect yourself against them and stop the pain of a gallbladder attack quickly, painlessly and without surgery.
The gallbladder is a small organ located directly under the liver. It acts as a bile reservoir; it concentrates bile which is secreted by the liver and is used by the body to digest fats.
If the liver is overloaded with toxins and saturated fats, the bile (which carries toxins and fats) will eventually inflame the gallbladder. When enough cholesterol deposits (from saturated fats) have formed, they crystallize with the bile to form gallstones.
If the gallbladder becomes inflamed, it can cause sever pain in the upper right abdomen, otherwise known as a "gallbladder attack". More serious conditions can lead to fever, nausea and vomiting. These symptoms often arise after the individual has eaten fried or fatty foods. This condition must be treated immediately as it can be life threatening.
According to the peer reviewed medical journal Medical Hypotheses, the key to stopping and reversing a gallbladder attack is to stop overloading the liver with toxins and saturated fats. Remember, cholesterol deposits from saturated fats cause gallstones, so avoiding saturated fats in your diet is the key.
Saturated fats do not exist in the vegetable kingdom. They are only available in meat and dairy foods. Therefore, "vegetarian diets offer protection against gallstones." Medical Hypotheses, 40(2), February 1993, p. 81-84
