Bad dietary habits, including bad oils (canola especially) made it difficult for my gallbladder to keep up, and I began having all the textbook symptoms of a gallbladder attack; i.e., nausea (no vomiting, though) right arm and shoulder pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, belching, feeling bloated all the time, and most of them I dismissed because I was doing intense personal training at the time. Sharp pain made me realize it wasn't a muscle pull, and so I did a flush and changed my diet.

OMG. I just went through horrible pain with my gall bladder. I was in the hospital for 4 days in horrible constant pain. No surgeon wanted to take my gall bladder out because all my test were normal. No one could figure out the problem. Eventually, I convinced a surgeon to remove it. I just read your statement about the Oregano Oil. I have been taking it everyday for the last 2 months. I know others that do too. Thank you so much for your warning although it's too late for me. I am feeling better.

Two cases happened. One gallbladder attack was caused by taking an oregano supplement. It caused immediate gallbladder pain and I ended up requiring a procedure to vacuum sludgy bile out of the ducts through my mouth. A couple of years later, I took an oregano oil pill and very soon after that had a gallstone-passing attack of pain that lasted for weeks. I have since changed my mind about concentrated oregano products.
