DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY GALLBLADDER OUT? There are times that we seem far too quick to remove those organs Mother Nature has so graciously given us. In this particular study, the majority of gallbladder surgeries were done on patients with no or mild symptoms (59%), and even those with severe symptoms who do not have surgery, only 31% will continue to have problems. “No big deal” you say–who needs it anyway?
Well…first off, those who have a cholecystectomy have an increased risk of chronic diarrhea, malabsorption of fat soluble vitamins / phytonutrients and colon cancer. Oops. Worse, the vast majority of patients with gallbladder issues actually are prediabetic and this is NEVER discussed with the patient. So, instead of having it unnecessarily cut out, consider a gall bladder flush combined with an anti-diabetes lifestyle.
