If you get gallbladder pain symptoms, it may be the result of gall bladder inflammation which is called cholecystitis. It can happen when there are small stones that form and block the cystic duct, which carries bile from the gallbladder When you have this condition, you may end up with persistent pain and an elevated body temperature (usually lasting more than 12 hours). The inflammation is what causes gallbladder pain. Sometimes you may even notice a yellow color of your skin.
Health Fact: Cholecystitis, also known as gallstone disease, affects up to 20 percent of the worlds population. Of these, about 20 percent develop a complication during their lifetime. Complications could lead to the need for the gallbladder to be surgically removed.
Related Complication: Cholangitis, (aka acute cholangitis) is inflammation of the bile duct often caused by bacteria ascending from where it connects to the duodenum (first part of the small intestine). This may occur if the bile duct is partially obstructed by gallstones.
There are medical methods of treating gallbladder pain symptoms and holistic or naturopathic ways to treat this condition.
Following the water cures protocol has helped many to end their pain without the cost of challenges of going into the healthcare system.
Note: If you suspect you have gallbladder inflammation and experience fever and chills, you need to see a doctor.
These symptoms indicate that the infection may be traveling through the bile duct system. These symptoms can result in a life threatening condition.
The pain and tenderness experienced us usually just under the ribs on the right side. You may notice that the pain gets worse when you cough or if you move.
As it progresses, you will become golden in color when jaundice (yellow discoloration of your skin and whites of eyes) sets in.
Jaundice results because of an obstruction of the flow of bile from the liver. Jaundice may not always be caused by gallstones. The symptoms of jaundice include:
- increasingly yellow eyes and skin
- itchy skin
- pale bowel movements
- dark urine
Other conditions can cause jaundice and may result in symptoms similar to cholecystitis. This is why you need to see a doctor.
If you have gall bladder inflammation you may or may not also have gallstones. Many times this will require medical treatment including hospital admission.
The medical treatment includes:
- If antibiotics ineffective, gallbladder removal surgery.
Avoid OTC Pain Killers The most common action is taking over the counter painkillers. It is also the worse thing you can do. Why are you in pain? Because your body is screaming at you that something is wrong. So, you can ignore the pain (use pain killers) and let the cause continue or you can fix what is wrong.
These pain killers are known to be harmful to the liver. Your liver is what makes the bile that is stored in the gallbladder. Using painkillers can cause even more damage.
A Better Way: end your gall bladder inflammation which will end your pain naturally. The Watercures Protocol works for many in this instance. Some have noted decreased pain within as little as several minutes. This is because of several reasons, including the anti-inflammatory properties of the water cures protocol.
Anti-inflammatory Diet: Start an anti-inflammatory diet to help the healing. The processed sugar comfort foods you eat are probably feeding the pain. Gallbladder pain symptoms are usually the result of our diet. Change your diet and you will change your life and your health.
Right Fat vs Low Fat: Low fat diets may actually further exacerbate the problem. Although cutting fats out during the attack will help, stop the damage by eating the right fats. Eliminate all trans-fats from your diet. Even Olive Oil becomes a trans-fat when heated. Instead cook with virgin coconut oil.
Reduce or eliminate animal fat from your diet. If you do eat meat, avoid processed meats and turn to organic meats.
There is one animal fat exception here. Skim milk may not be good for you. The milk without the fat promotes acidity and can further complicate your health in many ways. If you drink milk, only drink organic whole milk. The BGH and antibiotics that end up in our regular milk supply can slow down the healing.
Warm Pack: placed on the affected area may provide some relief as you provide the necessary nutrients to help your body heal.
When gallbladder pain symptoms are from gallstones, what should you do?
They took a long time to be made inside you so they can take a long time to eliminate. Actually most people do not even know that they have them because they have no gallbladder pain symptoms. They are discovered during other medical procedures.
There are medical ways to break them up and there are natural and holistic ways to eliminate them.
Gallbladder Removal or Cholecystectomy: The health care system makes lots of money by preforming surgeries like removing organs. The system will say that we do not need the gallbladder and you will not notice any difference, other than no pain. Doctors will say there is no known complications from not having a gallbladder.
Some will ask, will I notice any difference after surgery?
Get a second opinion or two. Get the lowdown from those who regret having their gallbladders removed. Although you will be told the life changing complications will be rare, you should be aware of the risks.
Holistic / Natural Treatment of Gallstones / Gallbladder Attacks: using the water cures protocol and other natural methods.
A lot of sites promote apple cider vinegar and apple juice. The effectiveness of these are because of the chemical properties and the shift the body makes when consuming them.
In two studies on rats, apple cider vinegar proved beneficial for cholesterol reduction. However, the same research has not been conducted on humans. This research is still new and not conclusive.
At Watercures, we feel that it is not the chemicals in the vinegar that have the positive effect. It is the result of what the vinegar does. Just as lemon juice somehow causes the body to become more alkaline, so to the vinegar causes the same.
When you take the vinegar and use the salt in the watercures protocol, it will help the same process become even more effective.
Warning: If you are on laxatives, diuretics, heart disease medications you should check with your doctor or pharmacist before using vinegar as a supplement. If you are a diabetic, you should check with your doctor or diabetic educator nurse before using vinegar or vinegar supplements.
Some claim the vinegar also helps reduce heartburn. This could be for various reasons but most likely is because of the alkalinizing effect it has on the body. When the muscles have the proper ph balance, they work better. For more on this go to Water Cures Acid Reflux
The bottom line, end gallbladder pain symptoms by ending the gallbladder inflammation. This is best accomplished with diet and some simple changes in lifestyle, like adding the water cures protocol to your daily routine.
