Everyone has a gallbladder and yes, it can malfunction. Once it is ruined to the point of no return, it is removed and we are led to believe that the body will operate the same without it. I think differently. Last year my twenty-one year old had to have her gallbladder removed. I know several individuals that battle with weight loss and other concerns after having their gallbladders removed. I am baffled as I do not have gallbladder concerns. My diet has been far more worse than any of theirs and yet, I still have my gallbladder.
As a Health Coach we are taught to dive deeper. The rocks that linger in the shallows are not typically what it is about. After all, small rocks have to come from somewhere, right?

Unpleasantries, guilt, grief, happiness, and on and on are also connected to our emotions. Liver, the reason the gallbladder exists in the first place, is connected to anger. It only makes sense that the gallbladder is connected to those attributes of anger. Like turning to distractions or harboring resentment. It is also a reflection of being easily frustrated or irritated. Surely bad eating those individuals and I have in common, now the one thing we do not have in common is how we discard this negative energy.
Through mindfulness I have found that a lack of rest makes me irritable and easily frustrated. Pain turns into anger. I make every effort to eliminate the grief before it settles. And collecting another’s negative energy is not my thing.
I have mentioned in other blogs that we are energy. We can collect energy from others, whether it is positive or negative. How we release these energies are detrimental to our health, physiologically and mentally. These negative energies can bear themselves deep. They are the unsolicited opinions that others so willingly share. They are self inflicted thoughts of how we justify the neglect of our parents and other love ones. Like we are not good enough to love, to want, to be loved or to be wanted. It is not as simple as thinking differently. We must release the energy.
Releasing the energy through journaling, being able to express oneself safely and freely, meditating, screaming into the atmosphere, and a spiritual cleanse are a few ways to release this energy that negatively impacts our lives, relationships, minds, and bodies.
And Yes! I am still talking about gallbladder health. Releasing those complicated attributes of anger in collaboration with favorable food intake can be beneficial to healing both the gallbladder, liver, and ones overall well being. Sakara.com lists ideal food that assists in balancing the gallbladder and liver. Some of their recommendations are sour or bitter foods or herbs. Like citrus (not in excess), greens such as bell pepper, string beans, or sprouts; peas, cabbage, avocados, and beetroots. The website also indicates foods that she be reduced while trying to heal these organs some are soft dairy, peanuts, fried foods, alcohol, and I will throw in gluten. It is also suggested not to drink water while eating. And that if one consumes water thirty minutes prior or after eating stimulates the gallbladder to release its bile and prepares for digestion.
Once the gallbladder is removed bile is released by the liver whenever the liver produces it. That function is still intact. Now, bile being released when it is not necessary may have an affect on the body’s ability to absorb fat and vitamins A, K, D, E because they are fat solubles. liverdoctor.com Has a list of myths and facts which is beneficial to the truths about gallbladder and/or liver health. One thing I do know is that when the body is not capable of getting what it needs, it goes into survival mode. Which means it will do what it needs to do to survive.
It is just my personal opinion that when one consumes sugar, the body will keep it as it is stored in the fat cells. Since it cannot absorb fats as it normally would, that is how it may make up for the lack there of. Which may be the cause of weight gain to come after the gallbladder has been removed. Again, just my thought.

When I started going out in my early twenties, I had my first real alcoholic beverage. I may have consumed three in total. A situation arose and in that very moment I realized I was an angry drunk. Then I would get so fatigued and irritable the next morning. Being that I was hospitalized as an infant and I am sure overly drugged. It was so bad that all of my hair had fallen out. My mother stated when it started to grow back it was brittle and hard like gold. This leads me to think that my liver is scarred in some form or fashion. When I consume more than two 🍹, its my livers way of telling me to cut it out. Even smelling alcohol is a turn off. Long story short, I rarely consume alcohol no matter what research indicates. It is not my healthy.
