New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Should You Remove Your Gallbladder Because of a Stone??
so on one of the comments in my youtube channel someone asked this question should I remove my gallbladder because of a stone okay well the first thing I want to let you know is that check with your doctor before doing any of the things I’m going to tell you to do right here okay I’m not telling you not to take your gallbladder out I’m not telling you to take your gallbladder out but I want to just give you information to think with let’s start off with some of the symptoms that can occur with a gallbladder problem and/or a gallbladder stone right shoulder pain because if there’s tension right here and then there’s swelling it’ll put pressure on the nerve called the phrenic nerve that goes right up to the right side right into your neck okay you can go up to your head as well a lot of people have this and they think it’s an injury to the shoulder but it’s coming from the gallbladder if you’re curious about that if you have that just massage into that area underneath your right ribcage and see if the right shoulder pain goes away usually will just go away like that then you know there could be a problem okay bloating indigestion pain or tension or a fullness underneath the right ribcage anywhere in this area right here and there’s a lot of other symptoms as well when we’re talking about stones though we want to know what causes of stones this is the most important piece of information okay now if your entire gallbladder is completely impacted with stones that’s kind of a no-brainer you’ve gone past the point of reversal and if it’s just there’s too much too many stones in there you might need just to have the whole thing out but if there’s just one stone in there okay there’s other things that you may want to look at but we need to know what causes the stones and we need to know what change in diet must occur to dissolve that stone if someone tells you that you really don’t need your gallbladder it’s an extra organ it’s not necessary they’re lying to you there’s a condition called post cholecystectomy syndrome basically what this means is there are symptoms that occur after you have your gallbladder remove okay symptoms that occur 40% of the time that’s actually pretty common okay you could have even lifelong symptoms gas bloating nauseousness anal leakage constipation diarrhea bile salts which are concentrated in the gall bladder actually help move things to your colon so if you’re deficient in bile you can have more constipation if you have too much bile you’re gonna have diarrhea so what happens is maybe they took out the valve and it’s just draining too much and then you’re getting too much bile or in another situation because you don’t have the sack that holds in stores and concentrates the bile then what happens is you’re going to be bile deficient and you’ll have more constipation because the gall bladder actually concentrates the bile up to 20 times so it’s super concentrated so now we have a situation where we have diluted bile and you’re no longer going to have the power to extract the vitamin A D e K from your foods not to mention the omega-3 fatty acids and the DHA you can’t pull those out as much anymore and so what happens is you could start becoming deficient but in a vision problems at night can’t see vitamin D bone pain calcium problems by the mini heart k1 which is bleeding and bruising k2 which is calcium deposits DHA is lack of memory problems so there’s all sorts of things that can happen long term by not having the file so what I’m trying to point out is this if you’re gonna have the gallbladder out there should be a very good reason not just one little stone alright so now let’s talk about what causes a stone very very important it’s really a combination of two things too much concentration of cholesterol plus two little bile salts the bile salts help to break down the cholesterol so it’s a combination of both of these right here so it’s not just about having high cholesterol you also have to have a deficiency of bile salts to have a stone form now what you’ll need to know is what could deplete your bile salts okay birth control pills okay or too much estrogen how do you get estrogen from commercial dairy okay that could do it as well high levels of cortisol and I’m talking like prednisone like the medication prednisone can deplete your bile high levels of insulin as an insulin resistance and pre-diabetes and so many people I would say probably minimally 65% of the population has high insulin and they don’t even know because I’ve never tested it but it could be up to like 75 percent of the population is high insulin and that’s going to deplete your bile salts eventually and that comes from high carbohydrate diets all right liver damage why because the liver makes bile and if you have cirrhosis or a fatty liver or inflammation in the liver as hepatitis and you’re not going to be able to make the bile that you need also you don’t have enough flora or friendly bacteria in your colon the bacteria actually help you recycle the bile so if there’s not enough bacteria you can’t recycle it so you’ll be bile deficient constipation okay well if you’re constipated things are going to back up and you’re not going to get the right recycling effect and this also is a symptom of lack of bile as well also pee pee is it’s an anti acid as you become more diabetic the risk of getting stones goes higher and higher higher because of this insulin situation higher amounts of vegetables to help counter some of the cholesterol if you’re doing high cholesterol foods and eggs and things like that that’s fine but offset it with vegetables as well plus this give them microbes fiber that they need to feed so they can become plentiful so they can help you recycle the bile as well higher fat diet now wait a second I thought that we’re supposed to cut the fat back right well I’m gonna put a link down below is a very interesting study okay that talks about bile salts I’m not going to give you the long-term name for bile salts I’m just going to say bye thoughts bile salts and diets higher in fat prevent gallbladder stones during weight loss interesting the meta-analysis herein suggests that UDC a that’s the type of bile salt and or a diet higher in fat decreases the overall risk of gallbladder stones forming during weight loss now why because what triggers the bile release and production is saturated fats okay interesting you would think I need to cut the fat down but actually when you do low fat diets it increases your risk of getting a stone interesting now if you get on a ketogenic plan you start eating a tremendous amount of fat it could be that you just don’t have enough file to digest the fat and you will get symptoms of bloating and things like that you need to cut back but the point is that consuming the fat isn’t the thing that is causing the stone itself it’s the lack of bile moderate protein we talked about that modifying dairy because this can give you more estrogen and other hormones that gonna aggravate the situation and also nuts now the nut stone cause golf stones but they can aggravate the gall bladder especially if you’re consuming raw nuts and they’re not germinated which means you’re soaking them and drying them out and you’re getting rid of certain factors that inhibit digestion and lastly the quality of food is very very important if you’re consuming things cooked with vegetables like soy oil or corn oil or when you’re dressing you have soy oil it’s GML so that’s why I’m saying do organic or you’re consuming non-organic things you have pesticides insecticides things like that so you want to go more quality and hopefully then you can avoid getting your gallbladder removed if

In this video, we’re going to talk about the gallbladder and gallstones. Should you remove your gallbladder because of a stone? What causes gallstones, and what should you do about them?
First off, always check with your doctor before applying this information. I’m not telling you not to take your gallbladder out, and I’m not telling you to have your gallbladder taken out. This is just some information for you to think about.
Here are a few main symptoms of gallstones or a gallbladder problem:
• Right shoulder pain
• Pain under the right rib cage
Your gallbladder is an essential organ. There is a condition called postcholecystectomy syndrome. This refers to symptoms (sometimes life-long symptoms) that occur 40% of the time after a person goes through a cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal). You could even become bile deficient or deficient in certain essential vitamins, fatty acids, and DHA.
There really needs to be a good reason for you to undergo gallbladder removal surgery. It shouldn’t be because of just one little stone.
If there are too many stones, it may be that you’re past the point of reversal. At this point, you may just have to have the gallbladder removed. But, if there is just one stone, there may still be a few things you can do other than gallbladder surgery.
The two most important things you need to consider are:
1. What could be the cause of the gallbladder stones?
2. What changes in diet should be made to dissolve the stones?
What causes a gallbladder stone? It’s a combination of two things:
• Too much concentration of cholesterol
• Too little bile salts
What could deplete your bile salts?
• Birth control pills (too much estrogen from commercial dairy)
• High levels of cortisol (prednisone)
• High levels of insulin (insulin resistance, pre-diabetes)
• Liver Damage (cirrhosis, fatty liver, inflammation)
• Not enough flora (friendly bacteria)
• Constipation (you can’t get the recycling effect)
• PPI (proton-pump inhibitors)
What your diet should look like:
• Low Carbs
• High Veggies
• High Fat
• Moderate Protein
• Modify Dairy/Nuts
• Quality Food (eat organic, and non-GMO)
