A good bile flow is needed to enable efficient fat metabolism and absorption of the fat-soluble, antioxidant vitamins A, D, E and K
There are several things you can do to naturally improve bile flow:
• A coffee enema is given primarily to stimulate the liver's bile production and flow (called a choleretic). Chemicals in coffee, including caffeine, theobromine and theophylline, cause blood vessels and bile ducts to dilate. This opens the bile ducts and stimulates the liver's bile production.
• Do a liver / gallbladder cleanse - here is one that can be done overnight:
• Drink plenty of good spring water
• Consume probiotics, enzymes, organic acids. Include a daily probiotic supplement and/or fermented vegetables (including qualit.y sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, which in addition to probiotics, also contain enzymes and organic acids) --- all of which improve digestive juice secretions
• Take a magnesium supplement. Nick-named the "missing mineral", magnesium is commonly deficient in our diet. It's contractile function is necessary for squeezing bile along the bile ducts from the liver to the gallbladder to the intestinal duodenum.
• Drink lemon water on rising every day. Drink a 6 oz glass of warm water containing one fresh-squeeze lemon; also consume one or two apple cider vinegar drinks during the day.
• Be at peace with yourself and others. It has been well recognized amongst Eastern cultures that the liver and gallbladder take the brunt of your negative emotions, such as anger, frustration, regrets, making difficult decisons and so on; examine your thoughts and emotions and use any of various stress relief methods available - and especially don't forget prayer.
• Minimize sugar and processed foods. These are associated with gallbladder problems
• Have a "time out" on eating fats every now and again (even the good fats);
• Eat foods which are known to stimulate bile flow:
. Raw, grated beets
. Carrots, asparagus, celery, broccoli, kale sprouts, radishes, artichoke, lime, grapefruit, cucumbers
. Bitter herbs - arugula, cilantro, cumin, dandelion, fennel, ginger, leeks,milk thistle, mint, parsley, turmeric
. Chlorophyll-rich foods - chlorella, spirulina, dark green leafies, wheat grass
• Take an ox bile supplement (available at most health stores)
