Over the holidays last year, I went to the emergency room with an extremely painful gall bladder attack. When I sought solutions, the first item that came up was the Paleo Diet. Having had such pain, it was easy to go cold turkey on the diet, and even easier because the diet didn't make me crave the foods that elicit my gall bladder symptoms. Within several days, my symptoms were gone. And, I've only had a minor sense that my gall bladder was acting up about 3 weeks ago, but no real symptoms.
I didn't tell my doctor about my diet because I thought he'd crack up. I asked his nurse if it was OK to delay the surgery appointment in lieu of my dietary changes and 10 pound weight loss (at the time). Both the nurse and the doctor never heard of a gall bladder being healed. And I have yet to find anywhere, except for the flushing programs of which I am skeptical, that says a gall bladder can be healed. Like Robb says, the medical community's only real answer is to take out the offending organ. I'll have a follow-up appointment early this Summer and maybe my doctor will become a Paleo believer.
Does anyone else have a similar experience?
