Gallbladder attack and my experience and how I got it to settle down

Updated on August 17, 2010

Gall Bladder attack

Gall Bladder attacks are extremely painful. What is someone supposed to do when this happens?  I had a major flareup a few Weeks ago, i was in so much pain that after dealing with this for four days I decided to have my wife take me into the hospital. I am a person that never goes to the hospital, so when i had voluntarily decided to go, everyone in my family was scared and new that it was serious. I must also say "Thank God for our health care system in Canada, I got tremendously  great care and had to pay nothing" Also the Pembroke Regional Hospital gave me amazing care.

Anyhow, I was put on IV and morphine and not given any food or drinks, this took care of the pain and allowed the Gall Bladder to begin to return to normal after a few days more. I was seen by a great surgeon who does not believe in cutting, he believe in researching as to what caused the flare up. I know what your thinking "A surgeon who does not believe in surgery?" Well yes.

This surgeon believe that most things can be cured by diet and exercise as well as reducing stress in ones life. So this is what I began to do. I stopped eating fast food al together, fast food id poison anyways. I only drink two cups of coffee in the morning, none throughout the rest of the day. I exercise and try to reduce or avoid stress in my life altogether. One more thing I have done is eat more fruit and vegetables and less meat.I also began to drink red clover tea which is supposed to help the gall bladder. I have done these things and have had no pain in the gallbladder whatsoever. Also drinking plenty of water is crucial.

I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice whatsoever, but doing this has been beneficial for me, and what is the harm living a healthier lifestyle anyway, it can only be good for a person I would think.

Anything one does when it comes to ones health should be researched and discussed with a doctor like I did. So do it and live healthy.
