So before we talk about how to help a body that lacks a "gallbladder" . . . let's talk about one more element to a normal healthy body.
And that would be the connection between the "gallbladder" and our "hormones".
Okay . . . this is important people . . . SO LISTEN UP . . .
There's actually a hormone called "Cholecystokinin" . . . which is secreted by cells of the upper part of the small intestine. And "cholecystokinin" stimulates a normal "gallbladder" to "contract" and release "stored" bile into the small intestine so we can digest our food.
But . . . what happens if there's NO "gallbladder" to stimulate???
Well . . . "cholecystokinin" NOW "increases gastroesophageal reflux. Why you ask???
Well . . . without a "gallbladder" to stimulate . . . "cholecystokinin" now "relaxes" the lower esophageal sphincter . . . which is like a rubber band that expands and contracts to let food into the stomach and stops stomach acids from going back up the esophagus.
So "without" a "gallbladder . . . this hormone may "now" cause acid reflux every time we eat . . . especially if it's high fat foods
Okay . . . so another important element is this . . .
"Bile" is an important component to the elimination of "estrogen" and its metabolites through the liver.
So without a "gallbladder" . . . "bile" can become "sluggish" and lead to sluggish hormone "elimination" like with "estrogen"!!!!!
So it's "imperative" that we STOP "sluggish" bile.
Okay . . . . so how does the body "compensate" when the "gallbladder" is removed???
Well . . . "bile" is now "LESS" concentrated and drains more continuously into the small intestine . . . where it can have a "LAXATIVE" EFFECT.
Meaning . . . without a "gallbladder" . . . you may find yourself with "diarrhea" after you eat.
So is this all making sense yet people???
Well tomorrow, we'll talk about a few ways to help correct these problems and a "missing" element conventional medicine "DOESN'T" tell us after we have our "gallbladder" removed.
