Have you got your gall bladder removed?

It is quite common, especially in women. A pity though, as this organ has its place and role in the human body, an outstanding construction which is yet to be fully discovered.

Liver is the organ which produces bile, gall bladder is only the storage.

What does this bile do, what is composed of, how can you support yourself, especially if you had the storage place removed?

Check if you present below symptoms and you’ll judge the level of intervention needed:

  • Fat digestion and assimilation. Do you feel nauseous after eating fats? I know someone who removes all fat after cooking meat. Not weight conscious per se, though obesity was there, but feeling so heavy and sick if eating; obviously, big issues of digestion and assimilation. Guess what? No gall bladder, this was removed more than 20 years ago. No one had ever explained consequences, offered advises on how to address it. She wasn’t aware, she didn’t join the dots, made no connection between her digestive issues and surgery.
  • Prevents acid reflux: bile is alkaline in nature and neutralizes excessive stomach acid before food enters the ileum
  • Antibacterial: kills pathogens present in food, so bile is part of immune system, warding off the unwelcomed guests; if not enough bile, you might end up with small intestine bacteria overgrowth, for example
  • Helps detoxing heavy metals, exogenous toxins, hormones and neurotransmitters
  • Activates thyroid hormones, so if you suspect you have a slow metabolism, bile production also plays a role
  • Supports vitamin D levels
  • Mental clarity
  • Good skin

Bile consistency has to be just the right one, neither too thin, nor too thick, last being the most frequent situation, leading to gall stones.

You got the idea: supporting liver is essential!! There are plenty ways to do this homeopathically. Plant tinctures are amazing to support liver drainage, and there are special plants suited to each organ. Alcohol, recreational drugs, heavy and constant medications, any toxic input are overburdening your liver, please reflect on this. On an emotional level, liver is seen as seat of anger and rage, you might want to scan your feelings and understand the necessity of emotional detoxification, a path for life.

One more detail on biochemical components of bile and I’ll proceed advising on diet and supplements you can look into.

Bile is composed of LECITHIN and BILE SALTS.

Lecithin is basically made of phosphatidylcholine.

Bile salts result from bile acids, made of cholesterol and pigments.

DIET:

  • Less refined carbohydrates (white ones) and sugary products
  • More proteins, source of amino acids, key ones to stimulate bile are TAURINE and GLYCINE
  • BITTER FOODS are a MUST: lemons, limes, grapefruit, dandelions, ginger, artichoke, Brussel sprouts
  • DIGESTIVE BITTERS
  • Juice raw, organic BEETROOT (thins the sludgy bile) and other vegetables (you can add celery sticks, parsley, carrot) and have it twice a week

IF GALL BLADDER REMOVED then you have to supplement bile. OX BILE is a good supplement. Introduce gradually for main meals, for a start. As an extra, according to your individual needs, consider digestive enzymes, choline, tissue salts.

SHORT TIME SUPPLEMENTS:

Sunflower lecithin (no GMO)

Taurine
