Many people experience recurrent gallbladder pain, often resorting to painkillers. Some who are advised by their doctor to undergo gallbladder removal surgery may feel uncertain about their next steps.

Gallbladder pain is a common symptom often inquired about at homeopathic pharmacies, whether in-store or over the phone.

In this blog, I will discuss commonly used homeopathic remedies for gallbladder pain.

Before I continue, let me explain the connection between the gallbladder and emotions.

#1 Function of the gallbladder

The gallbladder is a muscular, sac-shaped organ located below the liver and connected to it by a tube.

Bile, a bitter, green liquid that helps break down fat and aid in digestion, is produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile acids in bile help emulsify fats, making them easier to digest.

When there isn't enough bile, digestion takes longer, causing queasiness and nausea.

#2 Causes of gallbladder pain

Cholecystitis is a condition in which the gallbladder becomes inflamed. Acute cholecystitis occurs when sudden pain arises and subsides within a short period, while chronic cholecystitis involves recurrent pain attacks.

The most common causes of cholecystitis are gallstones and acalculous cholecystitis.

Gallstones form when bile solidifies, creating small, hard lumps. This mass causes a very sharp pain as it is expelled from the body.

  • Cholesterol stone

  • Bilirubin stone

  • Other stones (such as calcium)

Acalculous cholecystitis is an inflammation that occurs when bile becomes muddy and the flow of bile is obstructed.

#3 Bitter feelings and undigested emotions

Insufficient bile can lead to slower digestion, and it is linked to difficulty in processing emotions, comprehending and assimilating new information, and feeling restricted in dealing with the situation. Bile, being bitter in taste, is connected to feelings of bitterness and internal anger.

Gallstones form when bile solidifies, and they are related to be related to unresolved and unexpressed emotions.

These stones develop gradually, representing the build-up of suppressed resentment and anger over time.

Gallstones can help you to soothe bitter and painful thoughts, allowing you to express displeasure when needed, and to offer yourself forgiveness by saying "It's okay to do this." It appears to be a bodily signal prompting introspection.

When you feel pain, it can be a signal from your body that you need to address past trauma.

Have you ever found it difficult to let go of stress or trauma from a negative past experience that you keep reliving in your mind?

Are there things that you keep buried inside without expressing them?

I suggest keeping a journal as one way to process and express your emotions and anger.
