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.
