Gall stones affect women twice more than men, specially those suffering with obesity and diabetes. The general treatment to gall stones is to remove gall bladder by surgery. But, it is not healthy and have many complications that causes illness for life.

A healthy and balanced diet that is low in fat and cholesterol, moderate in calories and high in fiber, intake of Fruits and vegetables which are full of nutrients and fiber, high in vitamin C, calcium, or vitamin B is the best way to improve and protect your gallbladder’s health.
