Laura, I have taken ox bile, and I have never heard of something like that weird story! I don't understand how ox bile would cause a gallbladder attack - if anything, it gives the gb a break bc it doesn't have to provide as much bile. It sounds... (more)

Well, let's say if I ate a lot of fat and got a paler stool because of that, this means I'm not digesting the fat, right? If so, how can I tell my body, hey body , digest this fat better! I was craving some peas today, so I got some (freaking... (more)

Well, taurine supports bile production - the best source is raw meats, but all animals products, cooked or not, will provide some (including eggs). Thoroughly cooked meats will provide the least. Taurine likely helps because it's sulphur... (more)

My doctor said if it happens a second time, that I might consider having my gallbladder removed. I want to avoid that if possible. And I don't want to take medication or herbs for the rest of my life. My diet is high in protein and fat and... (more)

Is the solution as straightforward as losing the weight? I would guess the problems are related to what you're eating and not your weight. Have you tried any kind of elimination diet? I saw Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride speak very... (more)

Hi, I came across paleo about six months ago and have really enjoyed the diet. (I'm a school teacher and just can't keep up with it during the school year, but still eat far less gluten and processed foods than I use to which I guess is at... (more)

Hope your mom recovers quickly! Personally I had a very difficult time recovering from gb surgery. However, it was the BEST thing I have ever done. Apparently it had been bothering me for 20+ years, but I didn't know until it almost killed me. ... (more)

I read a story where a primitive hunter, after shooting a Buffalo or something, grabs out the liver (giving some to his dog) and squeezes some bile from the gallbladder on the liver like you might squeeze a lemon, eating this mix raw. But bile is... (more)

Wikipedia says "Bile salts also act as bactericides, destroying many of the microbes that may be present in the food." Perhaps evolution selected for hunters who enjoyed bile on their raw liver because it helped prevent food poisoning? Jeez, it's... (more)

My liver doesn't produce enough bile, a side effect of an Accutane treatment 8 years ago. From the Mayo Clinic: "Vitamin A toxicity may lead to intrahepatic cholestasis, a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver into the intestines.... (more)

I can say with confidence that dandelion is very effective at moving bile out of the liver and also creating bile, I supplement everyday (liquid tincture) because I also have poor bile production. Artichoke and burdock are another two, (I don't... (more)

Republicans and Democrats continue to advance the neolithic agenda: protection of corporate property rights, plunder and devastation of the environment, the poisoning of our food and water. Despite populist right-wing rhetoric from nutjobs like... (more)

Totally agree with Meredith. Our politics shape our food choices and more important, they shape the research. If it weren't for politics being supported by the corporations, we would have real research - not research funded by Monsanto, Kellogg's,... (more)
