Gall Bladder with gallstones

Do you have a history of gallstones, or gall bladder surgery?  Have you suffered from constipation with a light colored stool?  Can you tolerate spicy or fatty foods?  Do you suffer from chronic pain under the bottom of the rib cage?  The pain would be on the right and side underneath the front of the ribcage.  This is sometimes paired with a stiff shoulder or shoulders.

This can be a sign of dietary imbalance.  Either you are not eating enough complex carbohydrates, or your body has difficulty absorbing and using them.  In order to properly digest and use complex carbs, your body needs specific enzymes.  Although your body can produce these enzymes this ability decreases as we age.  In fact, it diminishes up to 70% by age 40.

Many believe their chronic pain comes from a physical or mechanical cause.  Unfortunately, this may not be the case.  Chronic pain in specific areas of the body can be a sign of nutritional stress.  It often represents a stressed organ, tissue or system.  That stress is usually nutritional in nature.

The Natural Approach to Support Healthy Gall Bladder Function

If you suffer from any of the symptoms listed above, try increasing your intake of COMPLEX carbs.  Your complex carbs should come from fruits and vegetables, not whole grains, breads or cereals.  If you still have problems, give us a call to set up a consultation.

Have you had gallstones?  Do you suffer from constipation?  Do you have chronic rib pain? If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.


After many years of clinical practice, Dr. Marrone has forged a remarkable career as a practitioner, educator and lecturer.  His extensive knowledge of functional enzyme nutrition has made him a much sought after practitioner.  If you are suffering from health problems that nobody seems to have the answer to, or are sick and tired of the revolving door approach of modern medicine, give Dr. Marrone a call to set up a consultation.
