Gall stone Therapy-
Gall stone Therapy is done mainly for removing gall stones, which are formed because of improper emptying of gall bladder. Gall bladder is a small pear shaped sac located on the right lobe of liver. Main function of gall bladder is to store and concentrate bile, which is a liquid that the body uses to digest fat and neutralize the acid to facilitate proper digestion.
Cholesterol is stored in liquid form inside gall bladder along with bile salts and pigments and becomes precipitated from liquid form to solid due to inadequate water intake and also intake of more fatty food.
