Lubing Your Gall Bladder
Re: Any chance of writing a blog entry focusing on the gall bladder? What foods it thrives on, what foods have a negative impact on it, the three Associate Organs that help to set its timing etc. etc.
That’s a book, not a blog entry.
There is no specific gall bladder diet (although globe-shaped foods in all three Growth Zones are useful).
The gall bladder requires frequent lubrication with saturated and monosaturated fat.
Or a high simple-sugar diet to manufacture your own fats and cholesterol.
One of the surest way to acquire gallstones is by FASTING (intermittent or otherwise).
Dieting can triple your chances of acquiring gallstones.
Your gall bladder is a jealous organ. It doesn’t like to be neglected.
It needs calories, fat, and bile salts at least five times a day.
This converts it into a zealous organ.
Bile stasis causes bacteria to grow gallstones the same way they grow tartar in your mouth.
Without frequent meals, it’s difficult to open your choledocho-duodenal sphincter, and therein lies the problem (unless you’re a yogi and know how to open it by breathing).
Old school doctors (100 years ago) knew (direct quote) “gall stones belong neither to the physician nor to the surgeon, but to the patient.”
Not lubricating your gall bladder can lead to one or more of three major problems …
1) cholecystitis — inflammation or infection of the gall bladder
2) cholangitis — inflammation or infection of the common bile duct
3) pancreatitis — inflammation of the pancreas
What about the various gall bladder cleanses alleged to remove gallstones?
Unfortunately, they don’t.
Take a memo from P.T. Barnum …
“There’s a sucker born every minute.”
Unfortunately, he never said that, but, whoever said it, it certainly applies to gallstone nostrums.
What a gall bladder cleanse CAN DO is prevent gall bladder surgery for gallstones.
The gall bladder cleanse won’t eliminate gallstones (except once in a blue moon), but it can SHIFT them.
What are those pretty green “gallstones” you flush down your toilet?
Congratulations! You’ve turned your gastrointestinal tract into a margaric acid factory.
Margaric acid is also known as heptadecanoic acid or heptadecylic acid.
Margaric acid only exists at low concentrations in either animal or vegetable fat until you do a gall bladder cleanse.
Folks who scoop those “stones” out of the toilet notice they dissolve in a few days.
Real gallstones don’t dissolve. You can make jewelry out of them.
The gall bladder cleanse is not an easy cleanse.
One of my friends told me, “You told me it might be bad, but you didn’t tell me it would be THAT bad!”
Another one of my friends vomited blood.
I advise doing this cleanse under professional supervision.
Or at least use a “trip sitter” or “co-pilot.”
Here’s the version of the gall bladder cleanse I’m most familiar with …
Take 4 ounces of olive oil with 4 ounces of apple juice before going to bed at night.
Do the same first thing in the morning.
Then drink 4 ounces of apple juice with 4 ounces of distilled water every hour till noon.
Take 4 ounces of corn oil with 4 ounces of tomato juice at noon.
Then drink 4 ounces of apple juice with 4 ounces of distilled water again till bedtime.
Repeat the first night’s 4 ounces of olive oil with the 4 ounces of apple juice before going to bed, and continue on till the “stones” have stopped evacuating out with the bowel movement.
In another version of this purge, do it for three days only.
Other gall bladder cleanses use lemon juice or grapefruit juice instead of apple juice.
I have no first-hand experience with either one.
