Dr. Melina Roberts, ND is going to deliver the best of what Functional Medicine has to offer for a healthy gallbladder and bile flow, with a Biological Medicine twist. You don’t want to miss this webinar!

Gallstones? SIBO? Sluggish metabolism? Thyroid dysfunction? Attacks of pain due to blocked bile ducts? Indigestion and fullness? Pale stool or diarrhea? It all can be associated with the gallbladder and a deeper understanding of the importance of fat digestion. Join Dr. Roberts to learn outside-the-box protocols beyond using ox bile and lipase enzymes to keep your patient’s gallbladders healthy and digesting throughout all fatty meals (including during Paleo and Keto diets).

With the gallbladder ultimately responsible for proper fat digestion through storing and secreting bile, it is essential to support healthy bile flow. Otherwise a cascade effect can result with a long list of symptoms and conditions including gall and bile duct stones, inflammation (cholecystitis), attacks of pain in the chest or back/shoulder blades, infection, SIBO, malnutrition due to poor absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins, decreased metabolism and difficulty losing weight, nausea or frequent and sudden diarrhea, and jaundice. This webinar provides the answers for a healthy gallbladder and how to keep bile healthy and flowing.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The 'secret' role of the gallbladder in metabolism and weight loss
  • What is bile and why is it so important
  • A review of fat digestion and fat metabolism
  • The role of bitters for digestive health
  • The connection between gallbladder function, thyroid and metabolism
  • Gallstones, latent infections and the connection to SIBO
  • Protocols and recommendations on how to optimize bile flow
