The Liver and Gall Bladder

Your key to weight loss, less pain, fat digestion and hormone production

Oh, to be young forever! Thin. Vital. Have a healthy sex drive.

It starts with cleansing once a year – and very specifically with cleansing the Gall Bladder.

Your Gall Bladder is a sack that stores your bile. Bile breaks down fats and should be a watery substance, but over time it can thicken until you form gall stones. Many people end up having the Gall Bladder removed for Gall Stones. However, it’s pretty easy to thin the bile.

Bile should squirt into your stomach when you eat fatty foods to break them down. Pain in the right rib side over the liver and the gall bladder and pain in the right side back between the spine and shoulder blades can be due to your gall bladder.

Fats are so critical in the body. Our brain needs adequate fat as does our myelin nerve sheath as does our hormones – it’s all about that good healthy fat.

If our bile flow is not working, then fat can accumulate in the body forming little fat deposits or lipomas. Our liver can get fatty. Guess what else your liver does? It breaks down excess estradiol helping to prevent cancer. Guess what else your liver does? 80% of your thyroid hormone converts in your liver.

So, get together with me once a year to schedule a cleanse. If your liver enzymes are elevated or your gall bladder has already been removed, there are still protocols to turn things around!

Some of my patients work with me by phone or zoom remotely. Some of my clients are on a nutrition and herbal approach without any acupuncture – so don’t let the distance stop you from reaching out for a consultation or an online appointment.

Fixing the root issue will set you up for long term health and may prevent diseases later in life!

Schedule a phone or zoom herbal/nutritional consult today! I love, love helping nip these things in the bud, shrink the waist, and get rid of embarrassing or troubling digestive symptoms! Schedule Now by clicking here.

Foods to Eat to Help Depression

Many have heard the question posed what came first, the chicken or the egg? But how does that concept apply to depression? It’s well-known that when we’re depressed, our motivation and interest in maintaining a healthy and balanced diet subsides in the same way our energy does. Harvard Medical Students positioned that same question in relation to depression; what came first, depression or a poor diet? continue reading »

Food Color and Nutrition

In Chinese medical theory, food is considered medicine. Food has qualities and functions biochemically and energetically that target specific organs. Not only that, but the action a particular food takes to benefit that organ in terms of taste, color and temperature is what is included in Five Element theory. Food has a relationship to both the natural elements as well as the organs in the body and balances the elements of fire, earth, metal, water and wood to healthy, generating cycles. continue reading »
