Ayurvedic Treatment For Gallstone Cholecystitis

Ayurvedic Treatment For Gallbladder Stone-Pittashay Khade - पित्ताशय की पथरी


The gallbladder is a small pouch-like organ located below the liver in the upper right abdomen; it’s a built-in bag that stores bile juice and a green-yellow liquid that aids in digestion. When there is too much cholesterol in the bile juice, a gallbladder stone forms. A gallstone is a hardened deposit of digestive fluid in your gallbladder. Gallstones vary in size from person to person; they can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a golf ball. Furthermore, some people only develop one gallstone, whereas others can develop multiple stones at the same time.

Save the gallbladder, avoid surgery, stay healthy. 

The liver produces bile, not the gallbladder, and the bile duct transports it to the gallbladder. The gallbladder contains bile, a juice produced by the liver, and aids in the breakdown of fatty foods. When food reaches the duodenum, the gallbladder contracts to force the bile through the bile duct and into the duodenum, where it is released for digestion. Gallbladder dysfunction is indicated by the development of stones in the gallbladder.

The gallbladder is responsible for sending enough digestive juices at the right time and storing them at other times. Due to its excessive storage of bile due to obstruction in its contraction and diffusion, its density increases, and its bile formed and this bile converted into gravel. Since these stones are firmer than kidney stones, it takes a little longer for them to crack and come out. Nevertheless, under no circumstances should gallbladder removal be the option.

Gallbladder stones are a concretion of bile pigment, cholesterol, or a combination of the two.

The size of gallbladder stones might vary. It could be extremely little (1 mm) or extremely big (>3 cm) Stones of various sizes may be present on one individual.

Gallstones are a common gastrointestinal disorder in middle-aged adults. It is more common in women than in men. This is one of the few diseases, which increases with the modern diet and lifestyle.

In most patients, these stones are dormant. However, if it starts to bother you, it is advisable to seek medical advice without ignoring it.
