What is Bile?Bile is the substance produced by your liver that is responsible for helping fat digestion. Though produced by your liver, bile is stored in a pear-shaped pouch that is your gallbladder. Bile gets a bad name for its foul taste when you vomit, but maintaining correct bile chemistry is crucial to your health. Altered bile chemistry can lead to thickening of the bile and formation of stones.
Since bile is responsible for the breakdown of fats, it is the main pathway for cholesterol metabolism. Eighty percent of all gallstones are cholesterol stones, formed when the bile has excess cholesterol or low concentration of bile salts. In addition to high cholesterol in general, unwanted excess cholesterol in the bile has also been linked to hypothyroid, weight gain, low metabolism and high cholesterol in general. A fat-rich diet leads to a fatty, congested liver, which, according to Ayurveda, predisposes one to a Kapha-Pitta conditions like gallstones. Low metabolism can lead to a sluggish gallbladder that fails to empty properly, increasing the likelihood that stones will form.
Liver Congestion & BitternessSpring is the most challenging season for liver and gallbladder congestion. While you're preparing the garden and freshening up the house your body is doing some spring-cleaning of its own by shedding winter fat that it will no longer need in the coming warmer months. A congested liver, stagnant gallbladder or thick bile has an emotional effect as well. It can cause a buildup of emotions that can make a person feel like they're ready to pop. The gallbladder is associated with envy, bitterness, contempt, and irritability. When Kapha alone afflicts the gall bladder a person may feel timid and under confident. Releasing the gallbladder can release these negative emotions and increase confidence and courage.
Visually, gallbladder stagnation appears as a slightly dark or greenish hue around the eye in a Kapha Pitta constitution. Low grade liver toxicity and gall bladder stagnation may be experienced as a mild discomfort under the right ribcage.
