Gallbladder polyps from the point of view of Ayurveda
The gallbladder is a small organ that stores bile and passes it from the liver to the small intestine. A gallbladder polyp is a small, abnormal growth of tissue with a stalk protruding from the lining of the inside of the gallbladder.
In many cases, people with gallbladder polyps show no symptoms. However, there are people who complain of recurrent pain in the right half of the upper abdomen, nausea, and vomiting.
According to Ayurveda, the gallbladder is one of the major organs in the digestive system, supplying the body with Agni (digestive fire). Gallbladder polyps indicate an imbalance in Kapha and Pitta doshas. One of the major causes of the gallbladder polyps is excess intake of fatty contents that are present in foods like red meat, ghee, and edible oil. Skipping meals, having an unhealthy lifestyle and lack of regular exercise can also contribute to gallbladder polyps.
