So, I don’t have a gall bladder. One of the biggest things I regret is having it removed, but then, I didn’t know any better. I’m working on letting it go.
At the time the doctors said you don’t need it, the bile in your liver is sufficient enough to help you digest your food. Right……………it’s delivered differently, and I already couldn’t digest my food, so now that we take an organ out of the equation, it’s going to work better? Sigh.
Anyway, I started supplementing today with Ox Bile. I tend to be one of those “let’s get all the supplements we can at once and start them immediately” type of people, which does no good, because how the hell do you know what is having a positive or negative effect? So, I start this today and will continue for a period of time, before starting something else 😉 It was recommended at the Balanced Bites nutrition seminar I attended about a month ago (which I highly recommend) for people lacking gall bladders. I’ve done some research on it and read lots of reviews, so here we go!
I sure hope this works for you! I’ll be looking forward to your reports to pass on to friends with the same no gallbladder issue.
That sounds super yucky, I hope it works though!
Maybe this is a dumb question but is it really bile from an ox? How do you take some one else’s bile?!
Not yucky at all, Megan! Just a supplement, like any other, no odor or anything. It really is a bovine source of bile, I think because it most closely mimics our bile. Animals (whether human or cow, etc.) need bile to digest food! Now, the extraction, not exactly sure…
I just started taking digestive enzymes with ox bile about 2 weeks ago – I too am sans-gall bladder! So far so good I guess….but I have to keep in mind that all good things take time. My digestion has been a bit up and down and all over the place, but I am willing to stick it out! I started a probiotic at the same time. fingers crossed…
Awesome! Definitely keep me posted, and let me know if you find anything else that helps support your digestion. It’s been a really long miserable journey for me, and I’m focusing in now, as there is nothing left but food reactions/supplements! Fingers crossed for you!!
I recently found out I have gall bladder disease (one stone in the gall bladder, one in the cystic duct near the neck of the gall bladder). My doctor agreed to wait until school is out, if I stick to a strict diet. I have until June to get my organ in working order naturally. Like you, I’ve ordered several supplements at once, and hope they and nutrition do the trick. If not, I will keep following how Ox Gall works for you. Thanks.
Sorry to hear that, Bonnie! I was told the same as you, and I can honestly say I’d do anything to get my gall bladder back. I hope the changes you’re making help, as the body can take time to heal. Keep me posted on your progress!
I am going to order this. My gallbladder was removed even before laser (26 yrs ago). I have had huge digestive issues. I currently take enzymes, probiotics, gas pills, and prevacid. After reading information in T.C. Hales book, it made so much sense. I have a problem digesting any fibrous foods. The question I have is how much and often do you take the Ox Bile? Thanks!
