A psychiatrist treats a person by prescribing medication but a psychologist treats a person by changing their behaviour. I specifically attended a psychologist to deal with a chronic pain condition which involved changing how I react to anger, frustration, anxiety etc. These emotion when they are used to much elevate our hormones making our bodies tense and any problems worse. Most of the treatment was cognitive behavioural treatment and mostly it works. I still need to vent my anger because suppressing it can lead to greater problems.
I like you flushed enthusiastically to try an attain a stone free situation, I didn't realise that in my case the continual flushing every two weeks would result in stones in it's self; albeit of a different variety. When I rested for several months and returned to flushing it was then that stone count had diminished dramatically and now by flushing only 3 - 6 month I am stone free. I believe this is due to fact that I have a small bile pool. Although I still get mild abdominal discomfort from time to time it is not the same as gallbladder/biliary pain, even though my mind tries to tell me it is. ( The brain thinks that liver-flushing cure the biliary pain and therefore it will cure all pain - Thats how fickle our brains are.
