HOMOEOPATHY FOR GALL STONES
Your gallbladder, a tiny, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, beneath your liver, is where gallstones can develop as hardened deposits of digestive fluid. The gallbladder stores bile, a digestive fluid that is released into your small intestine.
Some people only experience one gallstone, while others experience multiple gallstones at once, and gallstones can range in size from a grain of sand to a golf ball.
The majority of people in the United States have gallstones, and those who do usually need surgery to remove their gallbladder.
Gallstones may develop for a variety of reasons, but doctors believe the following situations may result in gallstones:
·Your bile contains too much cholesterol.If your liver excretes more cholesterol than your bile can dissolve, the extra cholesterol may crystallize and eventually turn into stones. Normally, your bile contains enough chemicals to dissolve the cholesterol excreted by your liver.
·Your bile contains too much bilirubin.When your body breaks down red blood cells, a substance called bilirubin is produced; however, under certain medical conditions, such as liver cirrhosis, biliary tract infections, and some blood disorders, your liver produces too much bilirubin, which can lead to the development of gallstones.
·Your gallbladder doesn’t empty correctly.Bile can become extremely concentrated and contribute to the development of gallstones if your gallbladder doesn’t empty completely or frequently enough.
Types of gallstones
In the gallbladder, various types of gallstones can develop, including:
·Cholesterol gallstones.The most typical type of gallstone, known as a cholesterol gallstone, frequently has a yellow appearance and is primarily made up of undissolved cholesterol, though they may also contain other substances.
·Pigment gallstones.When your bile has an excessive amount of bilirubin, these dark brown or black stones can develop.
