Session Outline

1. The liver should produce 1-2 quarts of bile per day. This is how important bile is to your digestive health.

a. Bile is the primary laxative, moistening agent in intestinal movement.

 

2. Bile helps to digest:

a. fats, oils and fatty acids

b. oil soluble vitamins like A, D, E & K for recycling

c. proteins (by emulsifying the fats that are usually bound with the proteins)

d. starches (by emulsifying added fats & oils so they interfere less with starch/sugar metabolism)

e. cholesterol-based steroidal hormones being recycled by the liver (progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, etc.)

 

3. Bile helps the liver purify the blood of:

a. parasites

b. heavy metals

c. viruses & bacteria

d. chemicals and other toxins

 

4. Bile helps to dissolve:

a. liver stones

b. gallbladder stones

c. arterial plaque (caused more by sugar, stress, and vascular biofilms than by fats)

d. excess blood cholesterol (by placing a demand on the blood to deliver the cholesterol to the liver to manufacture more bile).

e. mucoid plaque buildup in the small intestines

 

5. Bile helps to lower high blood sugar levels:

a. Bile is responsible for digesting oils and fats.

b. Undigested oils interfere with insulin finding sugar in the blood (a form of insulin-resistance).

c. This is why it is important not to combine fats/oils with sweets, or fats/oils with starches/grains (which convert to sugar) in your diet.

d. High sugar in the blood leads to bacterial, viral & fungal overgrowth (the body's last resort attempt to lower blood sugar levels).

8 Examples of sugar-raising / pathogen-promoting food combinations to avoid:

1) oils (nuts, flax seed oil, olive oil, etc.) with fruits, agave, honey or sugar

2) almond butter on bread or a rice cracker

3) potatoes/squash with butter or sour cream or cheese

4) honey/agave/sugar in a salad dressing with olive oil

5) granola trial mixes (fruits & nuts)

6) breads made of fruits & nuts, or oils and sweeteners

7) apples, bananas (and other fruits) or sweeteners in a veggie drink with flax oil (or other oils) or soy/almond milk (because of the oil they contain)

8) butter on whole grain toast, or other starches like grain cereal, potatoes, rice, etc.

 

6. Bile helps to reduce bacterial, viral & yeast/fungal overgrowth by:

a. encapsulating/isolating/digesting typical food sources for bacteria, viruses & fungus in the blood & intestinal tract (mucous, chemicals, heavy metals & blood toxins)

b. clearing the way for insulin to find the sugar in the blood and utilize it or store it properly

c. improving the digestion of food so food no longer rots or turns to poison in the intestinal tract

d. dissolving the mucoid plaque lining of decades old undigested food in the small intestines

 

7. Bile helps to reduce body fat due to:

a. improved digestion & assimilation of food nutrients

b. reduction of toxins in the body (otherwise stored in fat cells)

c. reduction of fungal/viral overgrowth (one of the prime causes of large bellies)

d. emulsification of fat cells (drawing fat & cholesterol back to the liver for bile production)

e. increasing the neutral to slightly alkaline state in the intestines (important for proper digestion of food and the proliferation of probiotics in the gut)

 

8. Bile and the importance of maintaining an alkaline system:

a. An acidic constitution causes bile to become thick and sluggish (bile needs to be almost neutral to slightly alkaline to remain fluid).

b. Thick, sluggish bile in the gallbladder fosters yeast/fungus overgrowth (because fungus feeds on the toxins encapsulated in the bile that are trapped in the acidic gallbladder).

c. An alkaline system thins the bile allowing for fluid movement of bile from the liver, through the gallbladder (where it is concentrated 5-20 times) and into the small intestines where it works its wonders.

 

9. What is the best way to stimulate the production of bile in your body?

a. Taking bitter herbs & digestive herbs/spices with every meal (Digestive Bitters, Herbal C).

b. Strengthen spleen function (the spleen manufactures bilirubin, an essential component of bile) (Spleen Builder, White Oak Bark).

c. Whole earthen mineral sources with naturally-occurring electrolyte content particularly balanced in sodium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate (the electrolyte makeup of bile).

d. "virtually all the osmotic [flow of fluids through membranes] activity of any bile specimen may be accounted for as the sum of sodium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate", [the electrolyte fraction]... the changes in bile flow and composition must be attributed to changes in the output and composition of the "electrolyte fraction"". (Electrolyte Excretion in Bile)

e. The flow of bicarbonate ions from rocks weathered by the carbonic acid in rainwater is an important part of the carbon cycle. (Wikipedia)

f. Thus the consumption of Sacred Clay, Mineral Manna, Friendly Flora or Ancient Mineral Blend (all mineral-rich sources) 20 minutes before a meal help prepare the digestive tract for the needed HCL, pancreatic bicarbonic juices and bile. Moderate amounts of Himalayan or other sea salts with a meal also support improved digestion.

 

10. What is the best way to insure your food is fully digested?

a. Consume with every meal a combination of bitter herbs (for the oils & fats) and digestive herbs & spices (providing, or assisting the body to make, the 3000+ enzymes manufactured by the body, including the 22 known digestive enzymes). Examples include:

    1. hawthorn berry (assists in the digestion of meats)
    2. alfalfa (contains enzymes for all major food groups)
    3. fennel (stimulates bile and reduces gas)
    4. seaweeds and other herbs (contain enzymes which assist in their own digestion)
    5. whey (contains enzymes, glutathione, and probiotics for improved digestion)
    6. white oak bark/codonopsis/wood betony/cardamon and other herbs/spices build spleen function, the organ responsible for nutrient assimilation
    7. Numerous other herbs & spices which support digestion exist in the herbal kingdom, many of which are included in Digestive Bitters, Herbal C & Spleen Builder.

b. Enzymes are fundamental to the digestive process. Three basic enzyme groups are involved in the break down of basic foods into compounds our bodies can utilize for health and healing:

    1. proteolytic enzymes (proteases): Proteases break-down the twenty amino acids that compose protein, with each protease targeting a different kind of amino acid.
    2. lipolytic enzymes (lipases): Lipases decompose various fats, including oils, lecithin (phospholipids), and cholesterol (sterols) thereby assisting the function of bile in the intestines.
    3. amylolytic enzymes (amylases). Amylases break down the various sugars such as: sucrose, milk sugar, and fruit sugar.

c. Herbs, naturally-occurring minerals sources, and spices provide the enzymes and digestive stimulus needed by the body to manufacture its essential digestive fluids.

d. Consume very little fluids during and after a meal so as not to dilute stomach acids, often a contributing factor to acid reflux.

e. Best to take herbal formulas before or during a meal, but if forgotten, take them after the meal with as little fluid as necessary so as to preserve the concentration of digestive juices in the stomach.

f. Adhere to proper food combining practices to improve your body's digestive power with each meal: OK, So What Foods CAN I Eat?
