Over the 6 years or so I’d spend some time in counseling and my counselor would say “You need to cut the cord.” And I would retort “The cord is cut! ” Most of the time believing that I had actually done this. Time heals all wounds. So as time goes on you really believe you’ve done this but all that garbage has to go somewhere. I believe that somewhere is the gall bladder. Its like the junk yard for negative thoughts. A place where they can hide and then release in the bile that our miraculous body produces.
I just spent the last week on the “road to recovery.” I think i’m pretty good at this. After all, I spend my days telling patient how to do this. Go slow. Eat, Drink, Pee, Poop, move and sleep. This is key. But until now it never dawned on me that maybe I should also be talking to them about putting the past in the past, dealing with their frustration and anger.
The gallbladder is a little sac that stores bile from the liver, and it’s found just beneath your liver. The gallbladder releases bile, via the cystic duct, into the small intestine to help break down the foods you eat — particularly fatty foods.
Typically the gallbladder doesn’t cause too many problems or much concern, but if something slows or blocks the flow of bile from the gallbladder, a number of problems can result and lead to gallbladder disease.
My gallbladder looked like a garbage dump.
According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), specific organs have a two hour time period when the Qi (energy) is at its peak in that meridian. The gallbladder meridian is most active between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. The liver meridian is most active between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. Consistently waking during these hours is an indication that the gallbladder or liver is out of balance. When the energy of a meridian is not flowing well due to a block such as unhealthy eating, toxic overload or stress, you’ll experience a sign or symptom from the meridian(s) involved.
Pre-disposing factors to consider with gallbladder dysfunction include diets high in processed carbs, hydrogenated & trans fats, fried foods, fructose and dairy; hormonal imbalances (thyroid, ovarian), obesity, hypochlorhydria, insufficient water intake, food sensitivities, genetic pre-disposition and constant runny nose, which often indicates a need for bile salts.
Causes of gallbladder pathology include excessive consumption of processed foods, greasy and fatty foods, anger, frustration, bottled-up resentment and a damp, hot climate.
I think my shitty ex bladder was 60 years of all kinds of crap. I don’t eat processed foods but I did, fatty foods but I did. I did have some major anger that I had to deal with and I did. I had massive frustration that I had to deal with but I but did. My best advice deal with things as they come don’t let them fester. Don’t turn your gall bladder into a garbage dump.
The last four years have been about dealing putting things to rest and moving forward.
This week I spent a glorious hour on Dr Shantung’s acupuncture table. When I walked in I felt like my energy had been totally sucked out of me. I walked out feeling 25% better. Last night I went to Reiki Circle for an hour where not only did my friends, the other reiki masters, take very good care of me but I got up and practiced at the end. When we were done I felt almost euphoric and realized at that moment that I had indeed put the past in the past where it belong and not only was it cut. It was literally taken out of me and disposed of.
