I just bought some ox bile capsules to see if that might help my digestion (I'm anemic and have low amino acid levels, despite eating a lot of red meat). But I'm a bit spooked (and confused) after reading about bile acids being carcinogens... (more)

That's ridiculous. We produce bile, do you really think that after several millions of years of evolution, we'd produce something endogenously that was carcinogenic? Certainly there is a correlation to gallbladder removal and higher colon... (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)

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)

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)

I think it is clear that TMS is correct. And I think more of you agree than it may seem. After all, I see libertarians like Salatin complaining that government regulation defends big business and makes life difficult for small farmers. Is that... (more)
