This is a book to help everyone affected by disease of the gallbladder or bile duct. Gallbladder disease can be painful and frightening, which is why so many people are rushed off to surgery to have their gallbladder removed. Is this the best thing to do - or are we being panicked? These decisions are complex and serious and it takes an expert in liver and gallbladder problems like Dr. Cabot to help you make sense of it. Dr. Cabot and naturopath Margaret Jasinska address: types of gallbladder disorders; risk factors; symptoms; natural treatment of gallstones; seven essential strategies for treating gallbladder disease; best foods and herbs for the gallbladder; how to ease the pain of an attack; gallbladder flush: to flush or not to flush; basic structure and function of the gallbladder; What goes wrong: why do gallstones form? Diagnosis: conventional and non-conventional treatment; and, sometimes it has to go: how to live well without a gallbladder.
