Are gallstones always painful? There is concern for my gallbladder on the part of my doctor and I've only really had nausea and hard rocky stool.

Dear, James!

Millions of people in the USA have the silent gallbladder stones without symptoms. By chance, the ultrasound test may reveal the gallbladder stone or stones. What is next?  

If you are sent to the surgeon, your gallbladder will be removed. “Do not ask the barber you need the haircut or not.” Gallbladder stones are not the reason for gallbladder surgery.  Even the brilliant surgeon cannot guaranty the absence of the pain and indigestion in future.

I do not know your believing, age, body composition, eating habits, lifestyle, medications, etc. It is unprofessional to give you medical advice. During my life and work as an MD and holistic practitioner, I try to keep my patients from the knife as long as it was possible. I can help you too, but it needs your involvement.
You may find my papers on the Internet. Please, educate yourself!

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment. It includes healing diet, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, healing mineral water, abdominal massage, and cleansing techniques. All these practices are widely used by gastroenterologists all over the world.


This is my everyday job at Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic in San Francisco. I have decades of the experience of working as an MD in ICU, outpatient department and privet practice. I have helped many of my patients with the chronic digestive disorders by using the non-drug, non-knife approach for the 20 years.
