Gall Bladder Problems

The gall bladder is a thumb-size organ that operates very closely with the liver, and resides right in front of it on the right hand side of your upper abdomen, just underneath your rib cage. It applies bile to your digesting food so that any fat in the food can be broken down into nutrient fatty acids. When the bile starts to get too thick (as in estrogen dominance or iodine deficiency) the gall bladder gets congested and gall stones can form. A gall bladder that has no stones but is simply congested also makes a person more likely to have digestive discomfort like nausea and vomiting, bloating and upper abdominal pain, and frequent diarrhea. It is very commonly associated with headaches and migraines. It can also be related to knee pain, back pain, and shoulder pain.

We offer various safe and effective herbal, nutritional and homeopathic remedies to relieve gall bladder congestion and improve health. Nutrition Response Testing can identify easily what remedies will work best in your situation.
Treatment for gall bladder problems include spinal adjusting especially at T4, T10, and C4. There are ways to stimulate the gall bladder acupuncture points that do not use needles, and the acupuncture meridian for gall bladder is very large and extensive, it starts at the outer corner of the eye and goes along the side of the head, down the neck and front of the shoulder, down the ribs and into the hip, leg and foot, where it ends at the 4th toe.
