Publisher's Summary

One of the least understood organs in the human body is the gallbladder. Despite this fact (or perhaps because of it), gallbladder removal surgery (cholecystectomy), has become the number one elective abdominal surgery in the United States. It seems that the medical community has already made up its mind, based on scant evidence, that the gallbladder isn't important, let alone essential. 

So if it's causing a patient duress, why not simply remove it? In other words, if your gallbladder ever starts causing you pain, chances are extremely high that some medical professional will recommend surgical removal as the first resort, rarely discussing (let alone acknowledging) the long-term consequences to your health beforehand. 

Catherine Sarchenko and Dr. Richard Sarchenko, the husband-and-wife team behind Gallbladder Matters, believe that removing an organ from your body should always be considered the very last resort. Their straightforward guide to gallbladder health will help you understand the role your gallbladder plays in your body and outline many holistic approaches to keeping it healthy. 

Gallbladder Matters covers the full range of gallbladder education: 

Chapter 1: What Is the Gallbladder? 

Chapter 2: What Is Gallbladder Dis-ease? 

Chapter 3: Symptoms and Risk Factors of Gallbladder Dis-ease 

Chapter 4: Surgical and Nonsurgical Options 

Chapter 5: Current Research in Gallbladder Health and Nutrition 

Chapter 6: Do I Really Need My Gallbladder? The Long-Term Consequences of Gallbladder Removal 

Chapter 7: A Holistic Approach to Gallbladder Stress 

Chapter 8: Recipes for Gallbladder Health 

Along with recipes and research, you'll also find a glossary of important terms. Let Gallbladder Matters take you on a journey of health and discovery. Because the first step in reducing the number of unnecessary gallbladder surgeries in this country may begin with your own.
