Gallbladder Pain & My Experience with Gall Bladder Formula by Nature’s Sunshine Products

Your gallbladder is quite an amazing organ! It is located on the right side of your abdomen, close to the edge of your ribs. It is about 3-4 inches long and pear shaped. It is nestled just under your liver and connected to the liver’s bile ducts. It is one of the components of the Biliary System. Many years ago, bile used to be called Gall – hence the name Gallbladder.

In your body, you will have worn out red blood cells. Once they reach the spleen, they are filtered out of the blood stream. The spleen then breaks them down into bile salts and other particles. The spleen then sends these bile salts down to the liver. The gallbladder stores bile that is produced by the liver. The liver also sends waste and bile salts into the gallbladder. The bile produced by the liver helps to break down and digests fats. The gallbladder not only holds the bile – but it concentrates it. The result is a smelly greenish yellow paste that is slightly acidic. It has a strong bitter taste.

When you eat a fatty meal and the fatty lump makes it way down into the small intestine, it first reaches the Duodenum. The duodenum is the first section of the small intestines. In mammals, it is the primary location for iron absorption. This tiny segment is largely responsible for digesting foods by producing enzymes. When the fatty lump reaches the duodenum it triggers the release of a hormone called cholecystokinin. This triggers the gallbladder to contract and release the bile into the duodenum.  The bile then helps to break down the fat so it can be further digested and passed on through the body.

Sometimes, when the gallbladder produces a stone it can become lodged. This can become painful! Some of the symptoms include:

  • thickness in the abdomen
  • fever
  • pain in the gallbladder area – dull throbbing or sharp stabbing. This pain is particularly noticeable after a fatty meal.
  • jaundice
  • nausea/vomiting
  • tenderness in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen

If gallstones are left for too long they can cause inflammation of the walls of the gallbladder and even infection. When it reaches the point of infection typically surgery is required.

There are two types of stones: Cholesterol Stones and Pigment Stones. Cholesterol stones are greenish yellow and are made primarily from hardened cholesterol. Up to 80% of all gallstones are cholesterol stones.  The pigment stones are primarily made of bilirubin. Pigment stones are usually dark in color. The cause of pigment stone is still relatively unknown. Bilirubin is another product that can be found in bile. It is the product of the breakdown of heme which is found in blood. Bilirubin is responsible for the yellow tint to some bruises and the yellow color of urine.

Several people have had luck if they are in the early stages (tenderness, mild pain) with a liver flush.  Since the gallbladder is so closely connectected to the liver, if you flush the liver it will flush out the gallbladder too.

My liver has had tenderness for quite some time. I have a small non-cancerous tumor on my liver, that is probably caused by extended exposure to chemical birth control.  By and by I have bouts of pain in my liver and it has spread to my gallbladder. A visit to the doctor produced inconclusive results.

A visit to my nutritionist and I found something that helped! It is called Gall Bladder Formula by Nature’s Sunshine.

I have taken two tablets twice a day – and by day two I noticed SIGNIFICANT relief from my pain. By significant I mean upwards to 80% of the pain.  I continued taking the product for a week – and all my pain was gone! Now I am not saying that this will cure the disease of gallstones – but it has helped me. I don’t know that I had gallstones, the doctor wasn’t sure what was causing all the pain. But based on my symptoms – it sounded like either gallstones or possibly an inflamed gallbladder.  I just wanted to find a way to help prevent it from getting worse. Several years ago my husband had to have his gallbladder removed – and I don’t want to have surgery 🙂 Yeah, I’m a wimp when it comes to IV’s and things. So far, this product has really helped!

Currently, I am studying Fertility Awareness Method so I can get off this birth control – not only for the moral reasons but also for the health of my liver.  I recently started taking taking Liver Cleanse Formula by Nature’s Sunshine too to help heal my liver. I don’t take the Gall Bladder Formula all the time – only when I have had some food that my gall bladder wants to make a fuss over. ‘

I am THRILLED with this product! The benefits came a lot faster than I was expecting. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!

This is where I purchased these products:  mynsp.com/lifesupplements

The customer service was VERY helpful. The website easy to navigate – and best of all, the shipping was VERY fast! Most often I get my products the very next business day. If I order late in the evening it can take an extra day – but MUCH faster than I expected!

  1. I do!! Occasionally a flare up will rise so I switch between this product and one I’ve recently discovered called Chanka Piedra, which is an herb from Peru, it translates to Stone Crusher. So I go between them depending upon the issue. It’s not very frequent however I am more prone to issues with gallbladder and liver because of the MTHFR gene mutation.
