What does the gallbladder do?
It aids in the digestive process by storing bile and secreting it into the small intestine when food enters. Bile is a fluid produced by the liver and is made up of several substances, including cholesterol, bilirubin, bile salts, and digestive enzymes.
Bile is a fluid made by the liver and contains different substances including cholesterol, and bilirubin – a waste product of the normal breakdown of blood and cells in the liver.
It was believed a high-fat cholesterol diet caused gallstones, that is until an experiment was conducted.
In this experiment, 2 groups of hamsters helped us understand the role diet and vitamins played in the development of gallstones. One group of hamsters were fed a diet deficient in vitamin E and developed gallstones. The second group received an ample supply of vitamin E and did not develop gallstones.
In another experiment, one group of hamsters were fed cholesterol, fats, saturated or unsaturated, along with ample vitamin E and did not develop gallstones. While the other group of hamsters on the same diet without the vitamin E developed them. One last study was done with a group of hamsters, restricting fats in their diet without vitamin E. This group developed gallstones.
Ultimately it is recommended that a diet with protein (keep your diet balanced with plenty of water, veggies and fruits to avoid kidney stones) and low in refined carbs with vitamins B, E and lecithin. Some protein sources that are recommended are from meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk and milk products, nuts, legumes and whole grains. You can eat soy beans and eggs for lecithin or take a lecithin supplement.
Homogenizes: a process in which the fat droplets are emulsified and the cream does not separate.
I have wondered what happens to those people who get their gallbladder removed. In my studies, I found that insufficient bile can cause malnutrition, just as it can limit the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, and carotene. The inability of getting enough vitamin A in the blood stream is one of the causes of night blindness and other serious consequences if this is not corrected.
For 3 days, drink as much apple juice as you can muster. Eat healthy light meals during this time. Lots of salads. On the 3rd day after lunch, dissolve 2 tsps of Epsom salt in a small glass of warm water. Drink it. Wash it down with a glass of grapefruit or lemon juice. Repeat in 2 hours. For dinner, eat a grapefruit and drink another glass of grapefruit or lemon juice.
Just before bed, blend 1/2 cup of warm and unrefined organic olive oil with 1/2 cup grapefruit of lemon juice. Repeat again in 10 minutes.
Go to bed lying on your right side. Draw your right knee up to your chest for half hour. Try not to get up, so get everything done before this last step.
In the morning drink another glass of warm water with 2 tsp of Epsom salt. Your next bowel movement should contain small to quarter size gallstones. When I did this, I passed over 100, some as big as a quarter.
