There are the facts from the medical literature.
- 20 to 25 million Americans have (or will have) gallstones.
- The majority of persons with gallbladder stones never experience any symptoms.
- The introduction of laparoscopic gallbladder surgery in 1989 further increased the cholecystectomy rate on 60%.
- 700,000 Americans lost their gallbladders every year.
- Gallbladder removal surgery negatively affects about 10-15% of patients, and it is known as a postcholecystectomy syndrome.
The typical symptoms of the postcholecystectomy syndrome are pain, indigestion, gas, bloating, intolerance of the fatty foods, sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, bile reflux, bile acid diarrhea, chronic pancreatitis
Currently, cholecystectomy does not relieve biliary pain in 10% to 33% of people with documented gallstones.
Gallstones can be dissolved and slip out
A panel of the doctors from World Gastroenterology Organization considered ”where there are no symptoms at all, it is clear that cholecystectomy confirms no benefit in patients with asymptomatic gallstones and even in patients with one attack of uncomplicated gallstone pain. The risks of the operation outweigh the complications if the stones are left.”
Hence, most gallbladder stones are clinically “silent,” an incidental finding frequently uncovered during abdominal ultrasound being performed for another reason. If ultrasound or other imaging techniques detected your gallstones, do not panic.
At first, you need to realize that thick, acidic, dirty bile can accumulate and form a gallstone. On the other hand, the increasing of the production of liquid, alkaline and less toxic bile by the liver and the ease releasing bile due to the proper contraction of the gallbladder, open bile ducts and the sphincter of Oddi is the key for treatment of the gallstones.
Changing your life-style and eating habits, using non-drug, non-knife methods of the alternative medicine can make your bile be liquid, alkaline, less aggressive and irritated, decrease the production of the new gallbladder stones, and relax the spasmodic gallbladder and sphincter of Oddi, and improve the entire digestion.
Customized, unique Biotherapy Alternative Medicine healing program for persons with asymptomatic gallbladder stones may include:
- Drinking healing mineral water that prepared at home from the genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt
- Acupuncture by using Chinese body, Russian ear lobe, Japanese scalp and Korean SuJok variants
- Herbal remedies
- Nutritional supplements
- Visceral Massage: abdominal massage for internal organs
- Healing diet
- The whole body cleansing with restoration of the beneficial intestinal bacteria
Many of these methods sound strange for Americans, but they have widely used in other countries for the hundred years.
Let’s focus on some of them.
European doctors have published lots of book and articles about healing power of Karlovy Vary mineral water in case of the gallbladder, liver and pancreas disorders since the 17th century. From that time, Karlovy Vary mineral resort in the Czech Republic is famous for treatment people with gallbladder stones.
Because of huge demand, European doctors proposed to vaporize the geyser mineral water to produce the genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt. Dissolving this salt in water makes available drink healing mineral water at home.
Biotherapy clinic staff Peter Melamed, Ph.D. and Felix Melamed, MS found another important property of this unique water. Drinking healing mineral water that prepared at home from the genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt makes a human being more alkaline. Unfortunately, due to the modern diet, the most people have whole body acidity-metabolic acidosis.
Acidity badly impacts two essential digestive organs liver that produces alkaline bile and pancreas that make very alkaline pancreatic juice. Acidic changes of bile and pancreatic juice lead to real problems in the bile system. Acidic bile is getting aggressive and irritated; therefore, corrode gallbladder walls, bile ducts and sphincter of Oddi. Say more, acidity causes precipitation of the cholesterol and bile acids inside gallbladder, thus, creates gallstones.
Also, acidity damages pancreas too causing pancreatitis and numerous digestive problems.

Healthy alkaline diet and taking Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium can also promote alkaline bile, thus decrease the formation of the new gallstone and help the old one slip out.
It looks like a mystery, but the different styles of acupuncture help get rid of gallbladder stones. Many medical reports, mostly from China support that acupuncture can contract gallbladder, relax sphincter of Oddi, may cause gallstone expulsion that was proved by ultrasound tests, and reduce the number of the gall bladder stones.
There is a large crowd that is crushed inside the abdomen and every digestive organ is dependent on each other. If one organ starts to move slowly or even stops, everything goes wrong, and the whole digestive system suffers. Each organ needs its space to work. The awkward position holds the gallbladder. The gallbladder is squeezed between the liver, duodenum, right part of the large intestine, diaphragm, and spinal column. There is really no space in this area.
For thousands of years, people have utilized massage techniques for “moving” and stimulating proper work of all the digestive organs. Various methods were promoted to reposition the inner organs and break up adhesions. The modern name of these techniques is visceral manipulation or visceral chiropractic.
Biotherapy’s practitioners employ the various techniques, which promote the reposition the inner organs, open passages, and valves, and break up adhesions. The modern name of these methods is visceral manipulation or visceral chiropractic.
Herbs and supplements can alkalize the bile and pancreatic juice, enhance production and smoothly movement of bile with sludge and small gallstones, decrease inflammation and improve digestion.
Not too many people realize that bile also has detoxification function. The liver removes through the bile, heavy metals, fat-soluble toxins, bile pigments, cholesterol. European Whole Body Cleansing Program with restoration beneficial intestinal bacteria is an essential step to the gallbladder health and making bile less toxic.
“Lover function” of the gallbladder, sludge, “silent” gallstones are no reason for panic and surgeon knife. It is reasons for changes in the life style and eating habits. Non-drug, non-knife methods of the alternative medicine are safe and efficient. The choice is yours.
