    The Importance of Keeping Your Gallbladder & What To Do If You've Had It Removed

    in Nutrition

    The gallbladder is a small organ located under the liver and serves an important digestive function.  It acts as a reservoir for bile which breaks down fats much in the same way soap breaks down grease when you wash your dishes. 

    This small organ may seem insignificant and many are recommended to have it removed (even when not necessary), yet your gallbladder was put there for a reason. Yes, you can live without it BUT your body will function less than optimally and you will have digestive concerns for the rest of your life. 

    Gallbladder operation, or laparoscopic cholecystectomy, is the most common operation in North America.  Every year, more than half a million people in the United States and more than 50,000 people in Canada undergo surgery to remove their gallbladders because of gallstones.  Many of these surgeries are unnecessary.

    In this episode, Dr. Budweiser, founder of Weiser Living, will share with you why it is important that you do everything you can to keep your gallbladder and what things you must do if you have already had it removed. Some of the things he will cover are:

    The Structure & Function Of The Gallbladder
    What Is Bile & Why Do We Need It?
    Symptoms Of Gallbladder Stress
    Gallstones - Where Do They Come From?
    How To Avoid Gallbladder Attacks
    Gallstone Prevention
    The Gallbladder Flush
    5 Tips If You Have Had Your Gallbladder Removed

    … and, as usual, much, much more!

    So be sure to tune into 30 minutes of green wisdom!

    Leaving the Pounds Behind without GUILT!

    in Lifestyle

    In health circles there has been much recent talk about acid /alkaline imbalance. Let's see if we can clarify how experts recommend we correct this imbalance.

    The problem:

    Your body functions best when neither too acid nor too alkaline. Unfortunately almost all of us have become acidic due to diet, drinks and stress -- both psychological and from pollution. Acids can build up in our body, causing systems to be out of balance.

    The effects:

    According to Dr. Stefan Kuprowsky, "Acid wastes build up in the body in the form of cholesterol, gallstones, kidney stones, arterial plaque, urates, phosphates and sulfates. These acidic waste products are the direct cause of premature aging and the onset of chronic disease."

    When this occurs, the body will restore its optimal pH by depleting certain minerals, such as potassium, calcium and magnesium, from organs and bones. In addition, your immune system may become fatigued from dealing with an excess of acid. Your body then stores acidic wastes in 'hiding places' such as muscles etc. rather than releasing the acids into the bloodstream.
