Hey, Dr. Troy here.
I want to talk today about the gallbladder because a lot of patients will ask or tell me, hey it went in and they said I have gallstones, I have a gallbladder issue.
The first thing you have to understand is the gallbladder creates bile which helps break down fats in your body. So a lot of people have had their gallbladder out, I could see it on X-Ray, they have a little metal clip. I say, you had your gallbladder out. Now a lot of times they’ll have trouble digesting fat, will have a lot of indigestion.
One thing I recommend is ox bile what’s an ox? An ox is that big animal and you have to take bile because it’s very similar to adults or humans. And so what it does is it helps break down fatty foods in your diet. So if you’ve had your gallbladder removed I recommend doing some nutritional support so you can help break down your food better.
But, if you’re having issues with your gallbladder, how can chiropractic help you?
The first thing you have to understand is what controls the gallbladder? Every time I talk we talk about the central nerve system. The brain, the spinal cord, and the peripheral nerves that come off that innervate the liver, the gallbladder which is right below the liver there. It’s innovated through nerve force or nerve potential and so if there’s been a misalignment, especially in the dorsal, the mid-back T6, T7, T8, that could affect gallbladder function.
Stones, we see this a lot, people get gallstones and they’ve been recommended, hey have your gallbladder taken out. There’s some natural cleanses you can do with apple cider vinegar and olive oil.
I had a patient who I recommended, hey try this cleanser gave her a book, check this cleanse out; go home do it on your own and three days later all the gallstones dissolved and went away. She came in, wrote me a thank you note:
Thank you, Dr. Troy. I didn’t have to have surgery for my gallbladder.
So there’s a lot of different natural solutions potentially out there for people with gallbladder issues. I just find many people hear the issue of gallbladder problems think I gotta have surgery and they don’t explore other options.
So I’m just here to share that there could be some other options prior to surgery to see if you can restore your health naturally.
One of the other things we also recommend to these people, get on Wuji Chlorella. It’s a whole food it’s a natural product, helps regulate the bowels, helps detoxify the liver and gallbladder and it’s chock-full of vitamins and minerals. It’s green, anything green we say is good. Go green, more alkaline the better.
If you want a consultation with us to see if chiropractic is right for you; there’s also some reflexive techniques that I’ve learned where you can push on certain points to help with the gallbladder or help with the liver or help with the lymphatic system to help it drain and function better.
So these could be some things. You could have some reflective congestion in the nerve system in the gut or the viscera which chiropractic techniques may be able to help you.
So if you’re interested, call our office (360) 260-6903.
This is Dr. Troy, thanks for listening.
