The organ that stores the bile which is produced by the liver is called gallbladder. The gallbladder is actually responsible for helping to digest fast the food and the bad tats that body needs.

Whether or not you are at risk for gallstones, it’s always a good idea to keep your body at a healthy weight and eat a diet that is low in fat and cholesterol, moderate in calories, and high in fiber.

Sometimes the bile sits inside the gallbladder for too long. When this happens, the bile becomes more concentrated. Bile is primarily made up of salt, fats (including cholesterol), water and something called bilirubin (a breakdown of hemoglobin).
Sometimes the concentration of the bile is overwhelmed with cholesterol. When the bile concentrates, leads the liquid to harden and forms stones. Other causes are obesity, family history; even estrogen has been linked to gallstones.


The symptoms of gallstones are various and sometimes surprising.
The most common symptoms are:

-Pain in the stomach
-Pain in the upper right tummy, under your ribs
-Other symptoms include:
-Dark urine
-Light colored stool
-Fever and Chills

So how can you prevent gallstones?

Deep fried food
Forget about the foods that are fried. Use oat flour for the crispy coating of the meat and bake it in stead of frying. Also replace the fried chicken and doughnuts with baked ones.

Fatty meat
Avoid the meats that are high in bad fats like salami, bacon and sausages. They causes bad cholesterol.

Do not try to replace the milk wit some low fat, just reduce the consumption in general of raw milk. You might use coconut milk or almond milk.

High Acidic Foods
Some of these ingredients like coffee, tomatoes or citrus fruits can provide a negative impact on your gallbladder. Reduce the consumption and try to give a nice balance with and alkalizing diet.

Refined Foods
Anything that is made for refined flour like high rich foods, ice cream, fudge, white bread, potato chips causes troubles. Try to replace these foods for example use Greek yogurt instead of ice cream, make your very own potato chips etc.
