You can dissolve gallstones in most cases. Surgical procedures should be a last resort and not your only option. However, not every doctor will be upfront and honest in telling you that you do have the power to dissolve your gallstones.
Gallstones (gall stones) are formed from bile, bilirubin, and cholesterol. They are common, and usually have no symptoms. However, when they do occur, the most common symptoms are biliary colic and cholecystitis.
More than one million new cases of gallstones are diagnosed in the U.S. every year. Roughly 700,000 will undergo the conventional treatment of choice – Cholecystectomy – or surgical removal of the gallbladder.
Gallstone surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries there is today. But surgery alone can't fix the underlying problem or what they can do to best prevent gallstones from returning once again.
