Symptoms, conditions and causes

What's the first sign of gallstones?

It turns out that the most common symptom of gallstones is having no symptoms at all. 80% of people with gallstones don’t experience any symptoms until the situation worsens.

Other symptoms of gallstones or a gallbladder problem:

• Pain or tightness under the right ribcage

• Pain under the right rhomboid

• Pain in the neck that runs up the side of the face

• Nausea

• Vomiting

• Bloating

• Belching

• Jaundice

• Dark urine

• Pale stool

Gallstones can form when a person has high cholesterol and a lack of bile. Bile helps thin and eliminate cholesterol. A deficiency of bile is the real problem. The gallbladder is an important organ that helps you store and concentrate bile and absorb fat-soluble nutrients.

Bile sludge is a common problem that can also cause pain, even when there aren’t any stones. Bile sludge can occur at different times but can be a complication after having your gallbladder removed, causing some of the same symptoms that lead you to have surgery.

Natural ways to help get rid of gallstones:

1. Take purified bile salts and probiotics

2. Consume salad

3. Use acupressure

4. Decrease your insulin (do intermittent fasting and go on the keto diet)
