Gallstones or Muscle Strain?

About The Gallbladder
Your gallbladder is an organ that sits just under the liver. It helps you digest fat by storing and secreting the bile produced in the liver. When you eat fatty food it secretes this concentrated bile through ducts into the small intestine where your food starts to be digested.

When the liver is not functioning properly, or when nutrients like choline or taurine are deficient, the bile that collects in your gallbladders becomes thickened or gritty. Many think gallstones are a function of poor gallbladder function, when they are actually produced in the liver And just stored in the gall.

This can occur more often after age 30 especially in women, as a result of nutritional deficiencies, a toxic liver or hormonal issues. You can then have trouble processing and digesting fats due to the lack of viscosity of the bile. This can result in nausea, abdominal cramps, strangely coloured or loose stools or pain in the right side of your abdomen after you eat, especially if it is a heavier, fatty, or spicy meal.
