I have constant nausea without the usual gallbladder attacks (right side pain) can it still be gallstones?
Ultrasound found a “possible” gallstone. Upper G.I. test found no ulcers. Colon test didn’t find anything.

Gallbladder problems are due to eating bad oils, LOW FAT diets, and a toxic liver. The liver produces bile that is sent to your gallbladder. If the bile is made from bad oils, the bile becomes viscous. If you have a low fat diet, this bad bile sits in the gallbladder waiting to be used and as the viscosity increases, it crystallizes and forms stones. These stones create pain when they move down the bile duct on it’s way to doing it’s job of breaking down the fats that you eat.
The first, and foremost thing to understand is that doctors do NOT have knowledge about nutrition; it simply is NOT their field of study. Their typical advice is to give you “MAKE BELIEVE HEALTH” and remove the gallbladder. That does NOT solve the “root cause” of the problem, only moves it from the gallbladder to the small intestines. Since the bile still moves through the bile duct to the small intestines, it does NOT have a chance to create stones because the bile constantly is dumped into the small intestines making fat digestion more difficult.
My suggestion, to answer your question, is to change your diet. AVOID and ELIMINATE completely all Vegetable Oils, especially soybean, canola, cottonseed, and corn oils. Check all the labels on foods. Avoid ALL hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, trans fats, fried foods, etc.
Do eat good fats and oils. Those are from nuts and seeds, a mixture of the following oils for all your cooking: 1/3 olive oil, 1/3 sesame seed oil, and 1/3 coconut oil. Eat lots of butter made from RAW CREAM. You can buy this on line and they will ship to you frozen at: www.organicpastures.com and also coconut oil. Both butter and coconut oil are medium chain fatty acids that do NOT require bile to break them down and are good sources of energy, both quick and sustained. They nourish the body in many ways. DO NOT eat any margarines, no matter what the marketing hype tells you about how good they are for you; it’s all junk and damages the body.
Also, I strongly recommend you start taking Betaine HCL after each meal. Go to: (800) 370 – 3447 and order the following to greatly improve your digestion of all your foods:
Betaine HCL — take 4 capsules after each meal
HCL Activator – Take 4 capsules after each meal
Digest — Take 2 capsules BEFORE each meal
This will do many things for you, including good digestion, eliminate the acid indigestion or reflux completely, and lengthen your life expectancy by 30 to 35 years.
good luck to you

…Ok, ignore the paranoid schizo…
Ultrasounds are not 100%, the only way to know for sure as to whether or not you have a gallstone is for them to go in and take it out. But having a HIDA scan done is your best bet. This will not only identify the smaller gallstones that the ultrasound would fail to pick up, but it will tell you how well your gallbladder is functioning. Pay attention to how you feel during the test, if you experience any cramping or nausea tell your doctor. Even if the test comes up negative it could still be your gallbladder and they’ll either send you in for another one, or just diagnose you symptomatically and send you in for surgery.
When I was having gallbladder problems, the first thing to hit me was nausea, it came and went and over the course of three years it became increasingly worse until it was almost constant. Excess gas was another problem. I didn’t actually start feeling pain until after three years had gone by and then they were finally able to diagnose me.
In the meantime, avoid the following foods and see if that helps at all:
Beef, pork, Citrus foods, fried foods, fast foods, spicy foods (this includes tomato, onion and garlic), anything overly sugary (like chocolate) or cheesy. Anything that causes gas like rice or cabbage. Anything with more than 4g or 5g of total fat per serving is off limits. And try not to eat more than 8g of total fat per meal.
Skim milk, soup, crackers, bread, sweet potatoes, cheerios, and lean meats like turkey and chicken and even fish (not battered or fried), will be your best friends. I even tolerated light cream cheese until the last two weeks before the surgery.
If it does turn out to be a gallstone, have them remove both the stone and the gallbladder. Otherwise in a few years you’re going to be back in the same old position.
If you have any more questions about symptoms, the tests or the surgery itself feel free to email me.
Good luck and hope you get feeling better soon.
