Three Specific Causes of Gallbladder Pain

and Three Methods of Treatment

By three causes of gallbladder pain, I don’t mean hamburgers, french fries or donuts. I’m talking about physiological causes. And in spite of numerous things that can go wrong with the gallbladder there are really only three main causes:

  • a stuck gallstone
  • a low-functioning gallbladder that can’t eject enough bile
  • a sphincter of Oddi disorder (SOD) preventing bile flow

Causes of Gallbladder Pain

In Chinese medicine, there is a saying that where there is stagnation, there is pain; where there is no stagnation, there is no pain. All three conditions above prevent the proper flow of bile, which is a condition of stagnation. This is why, regardless of the diagnosis, the natural treatment methods we suggest can help relieve those symptoms quickly. That is because the underlying principles are geared to do the following:

  • thin and move bile
  • reduce inflammation
  • relax – muscles and sphincter as well as the mind


How Do We Do That?

We use natural products, such as Phos Formula (food-grade phosphoric acid), designed to thin the bile so it can move more easily. This includes softening stones and dissolving sludge which keeps the bile from moving freely.

  • Castor oil packs are recommended to reduce any inflammation being created by the event and to relax the musculature of the bile ducts as well as the gallbladder wall.
