Have you noticed how many people, mainly women, and so many young women, are having their gall bladders removed? While the conventional perspective is that we don’t need a gall bladder, the implications are bigger than the gall bladder itself. Understanding this can help us provide clients with a better protocol both before they lose their gall balder and after, should it already have been removed. We’ll discuss the hormone connection, the gut connection and the liver connection and what to do for your clients.

I just reviewed your replay of What’s Happening in the GB, (very informative, by the way) and am curious to know your thoughts on estrogen dominance as it relates to GB removal in post-menopausal women? I feel like this would not be as large a concern in this case?
My observation for the Oxbile/heartburn question, I had the same issue. I’m not sure if this dilutes the impact of the ox bile, but I found taking it with plenty of water to be helpful.
Hi Beth I just saw this comment. I don’t think the water would do anything to the effectiveness of the ox bile and if it helped the heartburn then it’s a good solution.
Excellent information, Lorene! I really appreciate the way you tied it all together so succinctly – obvious when you think about it, but I don’t usually think of endocrine imbalances (stress, ED, hypothyroid) when faced with a GB case. This new perspective is a game-changer!
I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Thank you. Excellent information Lorene. One question, to your knowledge, has there been any connection / research on the Ideal Protein diet and its impact on the Gall Bladder? I know of two individuals who have had to have their GB removed after doing the IP diet. What are your thoughts?
Hi. I’m not familiar with that diet. I’ll have to look into it. Okay I just looked it up and it’s a modified-keto. One thing that is never discussed about keto is how much extra work it is for fat digestion which would make more work for the liver and the gall bladder. So perhaps , with the two people you know, their liver/gallbladder was not that good to begin with and they couldn’t really handle the extra fat.
