Gastroenterology/mild right side pain


hi peter, for the past 2 weeks i have been having some mild pain that comes and goes. the exact location of this pain is under the right side of my rib cage. i am 324 pounds and 6' tall. could this be a liver problem. i drink no pop, i do eat some junk food and also healthy food. my abdomen is bloated as well. what can i do to stop this pain.

Hi Christopher

Most of liver diseases do not have a pain syndrome. Liver suffers in silence.
I presume that it is gallbladder problem. It may be a gallbladder stone or stick bile that can cause irritation or spasms of the gallbladder or bile ducts.
There are short-term solution and long-term solution for this situation.

Short-term solution means that you have to make bile liquid and alkaline. Simply, buy chamomile, peppermint, rose hips teas and drink 6-8 cups of warm, mixed herbal teas per day until you will see the difference. You can put warm in liver area, as well.

Long-term solution requires serious effort from you and time to change life-style, eating habits, decrease weight, taking healing mineral water prepared from the genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt, taking probiotics, enzymes, cellular magnesium-potassium, herbs, supplements, vitamins, etc.

Otherwise, you are easy target for gallbladder removal. By many doctors opinion, having gallbladder stones does not mean you have to loose your gallbladder. After gallbladder surgery, many people have a pain, gas, heartburn, diarrhea, etc. More information about, you can get from my articles in the internet.
Bloating, gases are symptoms of the poor digestion; therefore, indigested foods are fermented with producing a lot of gases. Healthy eating habits I described in the part 2 of my EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You.”  

Sorry, I do not have sufficient information about you, so I cannot give you medical advice. I open for phone consultation and we can discuss your specific condition.

I wish you health.

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment.
