Bile: a waste product filtered from the blood by the liver and stored in the gallbladder.


Bile gets its name from the ‘biliary’ ducts of the liver that filter waste from blood. Sea sickness is the product of the liver dumping bile and the body reabsorbing it, hence, the ‘green’ color and nausea that accompanies with sea sickness.

A bilious personality is a bitter, difficult, hateful personality.  The overhang after heavy drinking often manifests accordingly.

Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes) are a product of a poorly function liver and elevated bilirubin levels.  The liver makes hundreds of soft pellets each day that are stored in the gallbladder and released into the small intestine (gut) about 2 inches below the outlet of the stomach.  The bile duct is located across the small intestine opposite the outlet from the pancreas.

Pellets that take on the characteristics of ‘stones’ are combinations of minerals and cholesterol. When waste hardens in the bilary ducts of the liver the waste is referred to as ‘nails’ because of their shape.

Gall stones are generally the size of small pebbles but can be as large as gold balls.  Both stones and nails can be softened and purged from the liver/gallbladder using the Tissue & Liver Protocol which you can read about here.

Bile is an alkaline substance as are pancreatic enzymes both of which transform highly acid stomach juices and food into an alkaline state for passage down the small intestine.  Acidity and alkalinity of food during passage should not be confused with the corrosive nature of waste lodged in the tissues and joints that are often referred to as being ‘acidic’ in nature.

Bile acts as an emulsifier and is critical for assimilation of dietary fats. The body needs dietary fats (lipids) to make hormones, grow muscle, provide energy and regenerate brain cells.

Eating triggers bile release and bile triggers bowel activity. Bile production falls after approximately age 35; lack of bile production accompanies onset of symptoms associated with menopause and andropause (slower sex drive, cold body, falling and graying hair, dry skin, acceleration of vision problems, low energy).

Colon cancer and bowel disorders are the product of poor liver function and low bile production. Bile is critical for longevity and good health; blood iron levels have a bile connection particularly in females. Without sufficient bile production, all aspects of health deteriorate and aging advances. A healthy liver and active bowels are critical for good health.

Failure to remove excess tissue waste from the body by way of the liver/bile pathway causes the body to become inflamed, forfeit good health, age and die prematurely. A healthy liver is absolutely critical for good health and longevity.

Liver function and health are forever linked to a balanced hormonal system where leptin, insulin, adrenaline and glucagon are functioning properly.  Read Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Life by clicking this link.
