Gallbladder Pain May Be Affected By Sleep: Get Relief Now!
Many people have trouble sleeping because of digestion-related issues. Certain foods eaten before bed can increase gut motility, gas and cramping, or may lead to bad dreams. We’re lucky if we can pinpoint what we did wrong and avoid it in the future, but we often don’t realize just how complex and connected our digestion and sleep cycles are.
Peak Gallbladder And Liver Function Times
The Traditional Chinese Medicine system TCM believes that each body organ has an assigned time of the day when it’s at its energy peak. Gallbladder pain relief is often needed late at night and attacks may even wake a person from sleep. TCM suggests that the gallbladder’s peak energy time is between 11-1, am so this is another reason you may experience digestive discomfort and need gallbladder pain relief late at night.
The circadian clock is commonly referred to as our body’s clock, and it’s responsible for helping to synchronize our endogenous system within a 24-hour period. Our blood sugar levels, metabolism and even hormonal balance are tied into this complex system and when one piece of the clock is not.
Lack Of Sleep Affect Gallbladder & Liver Function
The epithelial cells in your gastrointestinal tract divide and turn over quickly and these are adversely affected by unbalanced gut function. Reduction in Immunity, microbial imbalance, GERD, leaky gut, IBS and peptic ulcers may all be partly a result from inadequate sleep, rest and balance in the digestive system.
A lack of restful and satisfying sleep also has negative effects on the liver, pancreas and your gallbladder. Normal circadian rhythms with consistent, daily rest at night allow bile acid metabolism and insulin regulation. Your body counts on having an empty stomach and resting gut while your gallbladder and liver are at their peak energy times.
Eating Late At Night & Its Negative Effects On The Liver & Gallbladder
Fatty acid synthesis and effective liver functioning is impaired when bogged down with heavy food digestion late at night. Your gallbladder works hard to release bile for fat digestion. When we stay up late, eat late and eat heavy, our system may develop abnormal bile acids, inflammation, ineffective bile production, sluggish and irritated gallbladder and inadequate fat digestion. Lots of people eat fried, sugary and high fat food before bed and this is extremely stressful for the liver and gallbladder. Gallbladder pain relief can begin with simple rest and sleep patterns restored.
Tips To Aid In Preventing Abnormal Liver & Gallbladder Function
- Do not overeat and don’t eat right before sleep.
- Natural gallbladder treatment with a gallbladder healthy diet rich in green vegetables and low in saturated or trans fat is a good choice.
- Eat small portions and chew slowly/thoroughly.
- Plan to be fast asleep and resting your digestive system in the middle of the night.
Dealing With Gallstones
The Prevention of Gallstone Development is one thing, but how do you deal with the gallstones that have already formed?
The Pulverexx Protocol is a program for the dissolution and elimination of gallstones, sludge from the liver, the mouth of the pancreas and bile ducts, as well as toxins and fatty deposits from the liver. It works on calcified gallstones and cholesterol. For more information go here.
