save your gallbladder! 

Contrary to DR’s medical advice given to patients, there is not a single long term medical study carried on patients known to mankind that backs this medical opinion. In direct contradiction, comprehensive and reputable medical studies confirm up to 40-70 percent of patients who undergo cholecystectomy are likely to develop transient, persistent or lifelong complications. 

The gallbladder has a very important function and can be described as a protector of the liver, pancreas, stomach, intestines and colon. It serves as a storage site tp present bile on demand to process food. Bile is also designed to emulsify (digest) fats. When we eat meals with moderate amounts of fat the gallbladderreleases its stores of bile to aid the liver in digesting the fat. The loose stools and urgency are very common side effects of gallbladder removal and/or dysfunction. 

Because fats are essential for human health, they cannot simply be avoided. Good luck trying! Fats are required in the diet to help us absorb fat soluble vitamins such as Vitamin A,D,E and K. Fats are also important for the brain and our cell membranes. Fats also provide the building block for steroid hormones in the body such as estrogen, testosterone etc 

You cannot be healthy without a gallbladder. You can live, but in many cases be miserable. Some common side effects of gallbladder removal are: Upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting. Gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Persistent pain in the upper right abdomen. Risks include cancer of the Colon, pacreseas and throat (r esophagus) It is a shame when doctors remove the gallbladder. It is the greatest disservice your doctor can do to send you home and pretend you don’t need one. Bet your DR’s never provide you with informed consent on likely risks, which is medical fraud.

  1. I was manipulated and lied to by doctors in order to have mine removed and I agree with this post. Believe me, you do NOT need to get your gallbladder removed!

      • I have D everyday so I tried charcoal which stopped the D but that makes the right side of my stomach under my ribs and into my back hurt. I tried psyllium but it didn’t help. Tried calcium but that is rough on the digestion and caused dark spots on inner thigh skin. Plus the calcium made me urinate constantly which leads me to believe my body wanted it out. I don’t know what to do. Nothing I eat seems to agree with my stomach anymore. I try to stick to a vegan diet but I still have gas and bloating constantly and D daily. Lost a lot of weight because I don’t digest food well anymore and constantly have D pushing food out of my body before it is digested. Brain doesn’t learn as fast as it use to and feels foggy all the time because I’m not digesting fats anymore. If you don’t have the gallbladder, you don’t digest fats well. If you don’t digest fats your entire body struggles to function proerply i.e. decreased hormone production (which causes muscle and weight loss as well as a decrease in sexual desire), inability to digest vitamins a,d,e,k which causes a whole slew of problems. By now you get the picture; removing the gallbladder is a mistake which does NOT help you but actually causes you more health issues.

        Anyone out there reading this…DO NOT EVER HAVE YOUR GALLBLADDER REMOVED!!!

        Doctors will try to tell you the gallbladder doesn’t do anything and you will be fine without it. Don’t listen to them! Trust me, the gallbladder serves some distinct functions. These doctors might even try to scare you into thinking you might have cancer. They will say anything to get money. They will put their greed and financial gain ahead of your well being.

        The gallbladder is not the problem; just the symptom of something else. There are much safer and effective ways other than surgery to address the real underlying problems which will alleviate gallbladder pain and malfunction. If you are suffering from gallbladder attacks CUT DOWN ANIMAL PRODUCTS AND CUT OUT ALL PROCESSED FOODS and increase veggies and fruits such as beets, artichoke, kale, okra, apples, pears, lemons, limes, broccoli, radishes, beans and any other bitter fruit or veggie. It takes time to heal the liver, gallbladder and GI tract but it is well worth it. Trust me cutting out meat and processed foods ins’t hard and is much better than cutting out your gallbladder.

      • Please continue with the charcoal, it really does help. how many years post op are you? It does take about 3 years for things to calm down. I am vegan, I don’t eat meat. Pro biotics are also important.

      • Not well. I have D everyday. Tried charcoal and although that stopped the D it makes my right side under my rib cage and into my back hurt. Calcium helped somewhat but left blotches on the skin of my inner thighs. Plus I think that’s hard on the digestion system because I started urinating a bunch which makes me think my body wanted it out. Psyllium didn’t work. I’ve lost a lot of weight. Definitely not digesting food properly anymore. Not sure what to do. This has ruined my life.

  2. After recently having several gallbladder attacks (which my GP thought was just IBS), a 1 cm gallstone was found in my gallbladder during an ultrascan and also smaller bile debris (which are probably causing the pain). I don’t know what to do now. I’m scared of doing the gallbladder flush in case the stone gets stuck somewhere, and of more stones forming which would aggravate and inflame my gallbladder even further, yet I’m also scared of removing the gall bladder and all the possible complications that could derive from the removal in the longterm. It’s like a no win situation, either way. Help!

    • Read all the articles at my website. You need to prepare for a flush. Flushing is safe. I had hundreds of small stones and did 13 flushes and was Ok. The gallbladder can be under functioning and won’t move much if it has stoner. Nature takes care of these things. There is much you can do to help it.

      • Thanks! Really enjoy your site!

        I will try flushing first and would only go through with the operation as a last resort. So far I am just avoiding the main culprits that trigger my attacks, especially anything with sunflower oil, canola oil (rapseed oil), or palm oil and only cook and buy products that have extra virgin olive oil or no oil at all. I’ve had to say goodbye to my beloved bag of salt and vinegar chips, or any kind of savoury snacks because they are all made with these oils.I also avoid eating out now, because I won’t know what oils they use for sauces or frying. I just hope that whilst doing the flush, when I drink all that olive oil, that I don’t get a major gallbladder attack which will have me thriving in pain again. That’s one of the other big fears I have in doing the flush.

        I’ve also read in other blogs that you should do a parasite cleanse and a colon cleanse (or was it a kidney or liver cleanse?) before doing the gallbladder cleanse. So I have to look into that too, plus find the time to do them!

        I’m also waiting to get an appointment to have an endoscopy (a camera down my throat) to see if they find something else, like an ulcer, a fatty liver, or anything else unusual.

        By the way, I have hypothyroidism and I’ve heard that people with this condition and who are on synthetic thyroxine (and not the natural dessicated version, which most GPs won’t prescribe), often eventually end up having problems with their liver and gallbladder.

      • Hello you must prepare for the flush by softening the stones by drinking gold coin grass. Look at the YouTube video now part of this article. You can safe tour gallbladder. Also read they have advice like if you are having an attack eat grated beetroot lemon and flaxseed oil. It stops the attack. Also boiling flaxseed and drinking the water from it. Lemon juice cuts the pain and drinking lots of chamomile prevents attacks and it soften the stones hut you really want gold coin grass.

  3. I’m not sure I can get gold coin grass in the UK. If not, in the meantime I will use apple cider vinegar with mother which I just happened to buy this afternoon in Whole Foods. I also bought black walnut tincture to get rid of parasites prior to embarking on the gallbladder flush. I’ll leave it a few weeks until I get my endoscopy appointment, just in case. When I have an attack what I found helped me eventually, or made me purge at least, was by eating as much cucumber and carrots as possible (both very alkaline), and lots of spearmint and chamomile tea too, and if on hand, I squeeze lemon into water and drink that too. I will try your tips next time, so thanks again! Also thanks for putting the video.

    • Chris you can buy gold coin grass. My video has a link to It’s amazing stuff.

      I know a girl who did a 21 day green smoothie fast who had four stoned and got rid of three and is much better now. It’s very hard work. You need time off to deal with it. Also water fasting is recommended. I am very anti gallbladder removal. It messes up your digestion forever and increases your chances of cancer. I have another video at my channel on flushing. Look at my new video. Also I never did a parasite cleanse beforehand either. It’s very easy to pass soft green stones from the liver but the hard calcified ones are much harder.

    • Not as often anymore. I’ve been having colonics and have been taking probiotics and don’t have as much ibs. I take the charcoal whenever I got diarrhea or bad bile reflux. It hasn’t been as often lately.

    “Postcholecystectomy Syndrome (PCS) describes the presence of abdominal symptoms after surgical removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). Symptoms of Postcholecystectomy Syndrome may include: Upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting, gas, bloating, and diarrhoea. Persistent pain in the upper right abdomen. Symptoms occur in about 5 to 40 percent of patients who undergo cholecystectomy, and can be transient, persistent or lifelong”

    “Biliary Diseases Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. Postcholecystectomy Syndrome Dr. Jacob L. Turumin (Iakov L. Tyuryumin), MD, PhD, DMSci”:

    “The absence of the gallbladder leads to functional biliary hypertension and increased hepatic and common bile duct . 3-5 years after cholecystectomy increases right and left hepatic ducts equity.

    Functional hypertension in the common bile duct contributes to the appearance of functional and hypertension in Wirsung’s pancreatic duct with the development of the phenomena of chronic pancreatitis . At the same time period in some patients this is accompanied by the progression of chronic pancreatitis, sphincter of Oddi dysfunction and duodenogastric (Biliary / bile ) reflux.

    Duodenogastric reflux of mixture of bile with pancreatic juice promotes atrophic gastritis in the antral part of stomach.

    From 40% to 60% of patients after cholecystectomy dyspeptic suffering from various disorders, from 20% to 40% of pains of different localization .

    Up to 70% of patients after cholecystectomy have chronic effects of “bland” cholestasis, chronic cholestatic hepatitis and chronic compensatory bile acid-dependent apoptosis of hepatocytes.

    Patients undergoing cholecystectomy had an increased prevalence of metabolic risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels.

    Part of patients after cholecystectomy with increased concentration of hydrophobic hepatotoxic co-carcinogenic deoxicholic bile acid in serum and/or feces with increased risk of colon cancer”

    Postcholecystectomy syndrome (PCS), S. Mohandas, L.M. Almond, Department of General Surgery, Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Worcester, UK

    “The incidence of postcholecystectomy syndrome has been reported to be as high as 40% in one study, and the onset of symptoms may range from 2 days to 25 years. There may also be gender-specific risk factors for developing symptoms after cholecystectomy. In one study, the incidence of recurrent symptoms among female patients was 43%, compared to 28% of male patients.”

    “cholecystectomy is associated with several physiological changes in the upper gastrointestinal tract which may account for the persistence of symptoms or the development of new symptoms after gallbladder removal. The cholecyst sphincter of Oddi reflex, cholecyst-antral reflex, and cholecyst-oesophagal reflexes are all disrupted and some local upper gastrointestinal hormonal changes also occur after cholecystectomy. Thus, there is an increased incidence of gastritis, alkaline duodene gastric reflux and gastro-oesophageal reflux after cholecystectomy, all of which may be the basis for postcholecystectomy symptoms.”

    The postcholecystectomy syndrome: A review, Khalid R Murshid, Department of Surgery, King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia:

    Instance of Post Cholecystectomy Syndrome sustainably increased when patients followed for 5-9 years vs. only two years’ follow-up

    Cholecystectomy and Clinical Presentations of Gastroparesis, the NIDDK Gastroparesis Clinical Research Consortium (GpCRC)*

    Patients with cholecystectomy had more comorbidities, particularly chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety. Postcholecystectomy gastroparesis patients had increased health care utilization and had a worse quality of life.

    The basic role of the gallbladder in a human is a protective. The gallbladder decreases the formation of the secondary hydrophobic toxic bile acids (deoxycholic and lithocholic acids) by accumulating the primary bile acids (cholic and chenodeoxycholate acids) in the gallbladder, thus reducing their concentration in gallbladder-independent enterohepatic circulation and protecting the liver, the mucosa of the stomach, the gallbladder, and the colon from their effect

  5. I posted this on your youtube channel but I’ll post it again here just in case you didn’t see it.

    There’s a surgeon in China who for years has been performing gallstone removal leaving the gallbladder intact.

    See these links:

    My mother claimed to have had a similar operation in the US a few years ago, although on that occasion when they went in they actually found no gallstones despite scans showing them.

    You are doing a fantastic job bringing this to people’s awareness, just wish you could get more exposure. Have to contacted the media?
