It seems that every time you turn around some one you know is having their gall bladder removed. Gall bladder removal is as common as removing the appendix was 50 years ago. Why are so many people suffering from this disorder, and what can we do to reduce our risk and avoid this surgery?
When we eat, the food enters the small intestine. When this happens, cholecystokinin, a hormone, is released which triggers the gall bladder, telling it to secrete the bile that is stored.
The bile secreted by the gall bladder aids in digestion by helping to break up fats that you have consumed. It also helps drain waste products out of the liver and into the duodenum, a portion of the small intestine.
Several things can impact the function of your gall bladder including excess amounts bile salts, cholesterol or fat and bilirubin, for example, which can cause the formation of gall stones. These crystallized stones can harden and deposit into the lining of the gall bladder. These stones can become painful, cause blood in the urine, and even cause pancreatitis, which if not treated can cause death.
Gall bladder symptoms
A gall bladder attack happens as a result of the disruption of the digestive process due to excess buildup of bile. When a stone lodges in the bile duct you may become nauseated. It may be mild at first and may be worse after eating, but with time the symptoms will become worse.
Pain in the abdomen is another common symptom. Inflammation in the upper right portion of the abdomen is normally the cause.
Pain in the right shoulder, bouts of vomiting, feeling bloated, heart burn, diarrhea, a fever, loss of appetite, changes in urine, and chest pain are some other symptoms of a diseased gall bladder.
It is important to get an accurate diagnosis if you are suffering from any of these symptoms. Your doctor can do an x-ray to determine if you have stones or other disease of the gall bladder. Often it is necessary to have your gall bladder removed.
What to do if your gall bladder is removed
Many people complain about pain, acid reflux, indigestion, gas, bloating, or diarrhea after having their gall bladder removed. It is important to remember that your gall bladder is there for a reason. It helps the liver dump toxins from your body, produces bile, helps break down food, neutralizes the acids that dissolve proteins, fats, and carbohydrates as they pass from the stomach to the small intestine.
Without your gall bladder, those very strong acids can pass into the small intestine causing a deterioration of the lining of the small and large intestine, which can leave you open to bacterial infection and even leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut can poison your blood steam and even cause death.
Have you ever been told that, “All disease begins in the digestive tract”? There is a huge amount of truth to that statement. So, maintaining a healthy digestive system is very important.
So, what should you do if you have already had your gall bladder removed. It is as simple as taking an all-natural supplement that simply does what your gall bladder was designed to do and that supplement is called Thurston Compound.
Thurston Compound was designed by our lab and it contains a digestive proprietary blend of Betain Hcl, Papain, Myco-zyme and Ox Bile. All of these ingredients work together to support the normal digestive system you were born with.
Thurston Compound is so effective that many people, including my brother, takes one at the end of each meal. Robin was having terrible issues especially after eating salads. Many foods left him with heart burn and diarrhea, and heaven forbid he eat any fatty foods. Robin says, “From the first time I started taking Thurston Compound at the end of each meal I have had no more issues.”
Over the years, I have talked with hundreds of clients who all swear that just one of these little tablets taken at the end of each meal has changed their lives. Thurston Compound can be taken with any medication.
If you still have your gall bladder, you should consider supporting it with magnesium chloride. Magnesium helps your body remove calcification in the body and may help prevent the formation of stones and bone spurs.
Avoiding fried foods may help prevent gall bladder disease. Remember, gall bladder disease was very rare until we started eating so much fat, especially the hydrogenated oils used to deep fry food.
