Have you ever had gallstones? Given how common they are these days, odds are you or someone you know has experienced them at one point or another. Unfortunately, the way most medical doctors treat gallstones is not only misguided, but also harmful to patients.

Most of the time, gallbladder removal surgeries (known as cholecystectomies) are completely unnecessary. What’s more, they rarely alleviate the symptoms associated with gallstones. So today, I’m going to share the truth about gallstones, where they come from, and how to get rid of them—without getting rid of your gallbladder.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • Common causes of gallstones.
  • Symptoms associated with gallstones.
  • Why “gallstone” is a misnomer.
  • The sad truth about patients who have had their gallbladder removed.
  • Remedies for gallstones.
