Alternative Medicine For Digestive Disorders After Gallbladder Removal

chinese-alternative-medicine: Chinese Alternative MedicinePeter Melamed Photo By Peter Melamed on July 16, 2014

After gallbladder is removal, some people have problems with digestion and experience pain. The medical term of this condition is postcholecystectomy syndrome (PCS). By medical papers and statistic, postcholecystectomy syndrome develops in 10-15 percent of people without gallbladder.

If we assume that 700, 000 gallbladder surgeries are performed annually in the US, it may suppose the number of persons, which suffer from indigestion and pain. PCS may occur even after a perfect surgery that is performed by a brilliant surgeon. Absent of gallbladder can cause the postcholecystectomy syndrome in a predisposed person.

The deciding factor for gallbladder removal is the presence of gallstones or severe inflammation. Surgery can remove the gallbladder, but surgery alone cannot eliminate all of the actual causes of the stones and inflammation. Also, removal of the gallbladder creates additional problems for digestion, proper work of the pancreas, liver, and colon.

Normally, gallbladder has the significant role in digestion and its work is closely connected with the function of the liver, bile ducts, sphincter of Oddi, pancreas, duodenum, stomach, and even colon. I wrote about this in my EBook and articles. Liver produces bile that primarily has two important jobs to do.

First, liver removes throughout the bile numerous fat-soluble substances such as cholesterol, heavy metals, bile pigments, medications, drugs, alcohol, etc.

Second, without bile the proper digestion of the fat-soluble vitamins, fats are impossible.

Bile from the liver is collected In gallbladder. It is concentrated there and then gallbladder's bile throws into duodenum when the food mass from the stomach enters the small intestine for digestion.

When gallbladder is cut out, liver's bile constantly moves down to the duodenum even there if no food is there. This resulting indigestion leads to inner toxicity and deficiency of the critical nutrients with psychosomatic symptoms such as depression, anxiety, low tolerance to pain, food sensitivity and food allergies or IBS, fibromyalgia.

Why do some people suffer from pain and digestive problems after gallbladder removal?

Let's see. Not too many people understand that liver and pancreas are alkaline glands. It means that bile and pancreatic juice are normally the most alkaline fluids in the human body. Alkalinity of bile and pancreatic juice is a critical factor for the proper digestion and entire health. Contrary, acidity causes negative changes in the biochemistry of these fluids. Acidic bile becomes very aggressive; therefore it corrodes and irritates surrounding tissues such as bile ducts, sphincter of Oddi -valve between bile and pancreatic ducts and duodenum. This may be a serious reason for pain and cramps.

Aggressive acidic bile corrodes walls of the duodenum, creates the jerky contractions of the gut's wall. In turn, it causes bile reflux, when aggressive acidic bile is thrown up into the stomach or esophagus. The wrong way traffic - bile reflux is the central cause for stubborn heartburn, stomach inflammation, ulcers and Barret's esophagus. When these aggressive bile acids from the liver move down into the large intestine, it causes diarrhea, colon inflammation, or even colon cancer.

Acidity creates precipitation of bile stones in the bile ducts that can cause blockages, inflammation. Acidic bile loses ability to digest fats and fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K. Corroded acidic bile and indigested fats irritate colon leading to chronic bile acid diarrhea. Indigested foods in the small intestine are fermented by yeasts and bacteria with producing constant gas, fullness, bloating, flatulence, nausea and pain. This fermentation generates many toxic substances. No wonder that people with acidic bile feel weak, depressed, have low immunity, gain or lose weight, have the skin reactions, etc.

Therefore, it is clear that whole body acidity and acidity of bile and pancreatic juice, in particular, can aggravate the condition of person after gallbladder removal. What can help to restore normal acid-alkaline balance? Naturally, there are three ways to keep the body alkaline.

  1. Alkaline diet
  2. Drinking healing mineral water prepared from genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt
  3. Supplementation with minerals, for instance, cellular magnesium-potassium supplement

Is my body acidic or alkaline? We can check it at home with litmus paper. Saliva and urine pH have to be more than 6.6. I focused about healthy, alkaline diet in my book and articles. Taking cellular magnesium-potassium helps also to neutralize acid radicals.

Using Karlovy Vary healing mineral water for digestive disorders has a long history in Europe. European doctors have recommended drinking healing mineral waters for centuries. Karlovy Vary healing mineral water is the most medically researched. Numerous medical articles, books, dissertations proved its actions and safety. European doctors' realized that main active ingredient is the unique mineral content of the thermal spring water and proposed to vaporize this water to make a salt 250 years ago. Therefore, healing mineral water can be prepared by dissolving genuine Karlovy Vary thermal salt as a home remedy.

According European doctors, the minerals, bicarbonate and trace elements in the Karlovy Vary healing mineral water positively affect on digestive problems and pain in persons with postcholecystectomy syndrome after gallbladder surgery.

Alternative Healing Treatments

It is important that a person suffering from gallbladder problems eat a healthy diet of alkaline, organic foods, eats often, and in small portions. Many persons who have had gallbladder surgery have a problem with the digestion of fatty foods. Undigested fats cause oily, liquid, foul-smelling stools. For that reason, trans-fats, animal fat and fried foods should be avoided.

People without a gallbladder often suffer from food sensitivity and food allergies that requires a restricted diet, especially during attacks. Keep away from alcohol, white flour, milk, sugars, sodas, and spicy food. Drinking 8-12 glasses of water daily liquefies bile, flushes out the toxins and decreases the whole body's acidity. Drinking clean and purified water, fresh diluted vegetable juices and raw vegetable blends, herbal teas and healing mineral water is recommended.

  • Another alternative approach for postcholecystectomy syndrome is acupuncture. Two thousand years ago doctors in the Orient knew about the importance of the gallbladder. From the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) viewpoint, the functions of the Gallbladder are that it:
  • Stores and excretes bile
  • Governs decision making
  • Controls sinews
  • Effects dreams
  • Works in conjunction with the liver

According to TCM, the liver and the gallbladder both play an essential role in the smooth flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body. In order to have a healthy life, which is a job of the liver; one needs good decision-making skills, which is a task of the gallbladder.

Many scientific articles about the healing action of acupuncture after the postcholecystectomy syndrome have been published in recent years. Acupuncture can help reduce abdominal pain and various symptoms such as nausea, heartburn, belching, diarrhea, low mood and energy, insomnia, fibromyalgia, etc.

Other alternative medicine approaches for postcholecystectomy syndrome may include herbs, nutritional supplements, probiotics, colon hydrotherapy, medical hypnosis and more.
