Lately I can see there’s quite a lot of interest in learning how to properly read the body just like a book – that is not really a “novel” (pun intended) notion at all considering Asian physiognomy has existed for hundreds of years.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about just how common gallbladder attacks have become, and how our organs are impacted by our emotions. Is this because we can’t seem to figure out how to deal with the negative emotions we sometimes experience?
Back in the 60s and the 70s there was a study regarding the 99.9% gallbladder treatment by the chairman of the Food Allergy Committee of the American College of Allergists, Dr. James Breneman. In the late 60s he did a study with about 70 persons who have been experiencing constant gallbladder-associated pain and had them go on an elimination diet. Incredibly, all the folks in the study found themselves to no longer have any gallbladder issues when they prevented particular foods AND drugs (ouch!) from entering their systems. The discomfort came back, of course, once they began to consume these meals again or started ingesting their problematic meds.
So what does this mean? Gallbladder pain might be linked to inflammation that is placed into play with a food allergy (i.e. food response) or drug. But here’s the kicker. You know what the most “inflammatory” foods were? I couldn’t guess, myself, therefore I’ll inform you.
Here goes. The most unpleasant foods that lead to gallbladder pain:
- One: Eggs (for over 90% of the research participants)
- Two: Pork (for over 64%)
- Three: Chicken (35%)
- Four: Milk (35%)
- Five: Coffee (21%) This info is really interesting and somewhat astonishing.
Constipation and light colored stools are usually indications that bile salts are deficient, in addition to the above information.
So give your gallbladder some love, assess the color of the stools you’re making, and monitor your mental well-being. Your body believes every word you say and every thought you feel. Maintain optimistic emotions and surround yourself with happy people who do the same. If you’re upset, recall that life is a bundle filled with many positive and negative experiences and that if things are bad in the moment, they soon will be much better.
