Okay! Deep breath in!…annnd release~!
I’m NOT a doctor( I’m not a doctOr~)
…but I’m very into metaphysical interpretations and manifestations of things.
Metaphysically speaking…everyone taking a minute to re-center their systems and processes around anger and irritability could be effective for the collective ecosystem right about now.
Because guess what?
It’s November 6th. And those “idiots” who voted for that idiot still shop at the same grocery stores as you. They didn’t vanish. Everything we found out about each other at our respective worsts is still in the atmosphere.
We gotta make peace with the current truths of shit, as well as give people the space to heal their incongruencies the way we’d like to be given space to self-correct when we’re being epistemological idiots out of actual ignorance, which is nothing more than “Not Knowing.”
So This NOVEMBER iiii AM PROPOSING A SERIES OF CLEANSING regimes TO RECALIBRATE OUR SYSTEMS IN A TANGIBLE WAY…
Starting with the Liver and Gall Bladder.
In the days after this volatile 2020 election we have ALL been carrying around LOTS of anger. Even if this madness has turned out the way you hoped, your system could probably benefit from a bit of self-care cleansing vibes that are specifically attuned to processing the angers we either successfully kept in check during all this or not.
The Gall Bladder and Liver both factor into processing anger in the body. Many know about the liver being the seat of anger metaphysically speaking, but the gall bladder is where all the bile in your system lives and waits to be released into the small intestine to do its duty.
To me, bile is like tiny kernels of anger and irritability. Our grandparents and their friends used to talk about people really stirring up their bile or making bile rise in the back of their throat[which I think is the wrong direction for it to be flowing, but I could be wrong].
Now there IS a gall bladder cleanse you can do on the 6th day if you’d like but where I am coming from is just being mindful over the next six days to eat things that support the health of your liver and gall bladder. To go into the grocery store with that as one of your headlights will be kinesthetically appreciated and may work wonders for you. Less a diet, more a being mindful of things you’re putting into your body in light of the Gall Bladder for the next few.
According to Dr. JE Williams
To keep your digestive system healthy, include liver and gallbladder-friendly foods in your diet. Liver and gallbladder friendly foods include beets, apples, pears, lemon juice, garlic, turmeric, dandelion, and other bitter greens. Globe artichokes (Cynara cardunculus) maintain a healthy gut and protect the liver and gallbladder.
A high fiber diet is necessary for liver and gallbladder health. Along with adequate protein, high fiber prevents the buildup of biliary sludge, a precursor to gallstones. Insoluble fiber helps speed transit time in the intestines preventing constipation. Insoluble fiber is in berries, beans, whole grains, okra, spinach, radishes, apples, pears, seeds and nuts, and avocados.
Eat lots of fresh greens that benefit the liver like dandelion, arugula, and endive. Include steamed vegetables in the cabbage family like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and brussels sprouts. These foods contain glucosinolates, a naturally-occurring sulfur compound that promotes liver and intestinal health. Radishes are another liver and gallbladder friendly vegetable.”Dr. JE Williams
As for proteins when it comes to gall bladder health Medical News Today says:
“Protein is essential for the repair and growth of body tissues. Red meat and dairy products are good sources of protein, but they can also be high in fat, and a high fat intake can put stress on the gallbladder.”
Beyond that, some introductory herbs and supplements to explore this week that work on balancing and cleansing your liver and gall bladder are:
- Milk thistle
- Omega 3 fish oil
- Vitamin E
These guys to promote bile secretion and lower inflammation in these organs. Taurine is an important antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cell membrane stabilizing amino acid. Methionine supports taurine metabolism. Omega-3 fish oils and vitamin E are two other supplements that support healthy gallbladder function.
If you decide you DO want to do the actual Gall Bladder cleanse to remove gall stones, Dr. JE Williams has the entire protocol on his website https://drjewilliams.com/effective-gallbladder-flush-ever/ to assist you in deciphering if that is your road beyond this.
Another good modality to add into the mix this week is a redux of those liver qi gong moves that were danced with during Rawktober week two last month.
