More specifically, you want help with Why Does Intermittent Fasting Increase Gallbladder Sludge??

so today we want to talk about the gallbladder a relationship – in a minute fasting some people have been complaining about gallbladder symptoms when they do in a minute fasting and I’m gonna just kind of give you some insights of why that could be first of all let’s cover the symptoms a big ol butt or problem usually you’re gonna get right-sided shoulder pain now it could be up to the neck here it can t be out here it can either be back here on this muscle right here it could be by your scapula it could be by the mid-back but everything’s gonna be slightly on the right side you can even be on your head or jaw and cause like even headaches on the right side of your head and then abdominal pain mainly on the right side underneath the right ribcage you’ll feel a fullness of pain feeling bloated or you might experience burping or belching or nausea now there’s something that occurs in the gallbladder when you do a fast now around 10 to 15 hours of fasting you get this saturation of bile in the gallbladder now think about it when you eat you’re supposed to release the bile from the gallbladder that should contract that’s contractile tissue and the bile should come right out to help you digest and the gallbladder releases its bile to help break down fat so when you’re not eating it just sits there and it gets more concentrated but the maximum concentrated bile occurs between 10 and 15 hours and this incidentally corresponds with a lot of these symptoms that someone has when they start doing in a minute fasting so in other words the bile gets thick and it kind of gets sludgy in other words the ball gets thick and we call that gallbladder sludge and it can just cause pressure in this area so you might be concerned am I gonna get a stone what am I gonna do realize that after this peak it goes down in other words your body starts thinning the bile as you fast longer or if you just eat so mainly this effect occurs when you actually start doing in a minute fasting as you do it longer and longer your body adapts and you start to deal with this excess sludge or concentrated bile so there’s a couple things you could do to kind of minimize this in the transition because over a period of time this is going to go away in the meantime what do you do well lemon in your water is going to be very beneficial even during a fast you can drink lemon water that will help you adding apple cider vinegar to the water with the lemon will also help you because it actually helps thin the bile also making sure you don’t overdo it with the fats especially in the beginning when people start a ketogenic Plan a lot of times they go crazy with the MCT oil and drinking fats and doing butter and their coffee and they’re doing a lot of fats and they’re not used to that so you might want to cut back on that and go into this very gradual now if you’re concerned about stones let’s just kind of cover the basics of how people develop stones stones usually come from having too much insulin this is why diabetics have a higher risk of getting kidney stones so as you do a keto plan and you’re doing in a minute fasting you’re lowering insulin you’re going to decrease your risk of getting stones in general the bile that is released from the gall bladder helps to prevent the stones from developing so then the question is what triggers the bile release well guess what it’s saturated fats so when you go on a diet that is low in saturated fats let’s say you’re vegetarian you’re vegan what’s gonna happen is you’re not going to release as much bile and there’s a higher incidence of kidney stones with with people that go on a low-fat diet then a higher fat diet so really it’s not the high fat in the diet that causes the stones eating high amounts of fats will actually help you as long as you keep your carbs low and I’m talking about the refined carbs and the sugar also realize the microbes have a huge influence on your bile because microbes in your gut help you recycle the bile if you don’t have enough microbes you don’t get the recycling you’re gonna be deficient in bile and if that happens you you you can actually get stones as well if you have liver damage from any reason you can develop stones so but going on a healthy keto and alumina fasting plan is not going to cause stones but it may cause some temporary saturation or concentration of sludge in your gall bladder between 10 and 15 hours of fasting but this is only temporary and you can actually do things to minimize it like adding lemon juice outside of vinegar and maybe cutting down on some of the fats as you’re doing this program alright thanks for watching hey if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

Dr. Berg talks about gallbladder in relationship to intermittent fasting. There’s something that occurs in the gallbladder when you do fasting. 10 to 15 hours of fasting, there will be a maximum saturation of bile in the gallbladder, the bile gets thick and sludgy or gallbladder sludge. This effect occurs only when you start doing intermittent fasting and as you do it longer, the body adapts.

Symptoms of Gallbladder Problems:
• Right-sided shoulder pain
• Abdominal pain and feeling bloated
• Burping, Belching
• Nausea

• Lemon in the water

• High estrogen
• High cortisol
