Ever wonder why so many people are getting their gallbladder surgically removed?  What is causing all these gallbladders to fail?  Listen to Dr. Rostenberg expose the connection between estrogen, methyl imbalance, choline and gallbladder function.  You will be surprised once you start investigating how methylation impacts this issue!  In fact, methylation cycle processes are 100% related to gallbladder and hormone balance.  We are awash in our modern world in a sea of chemicals, many of them estrogens.  This includes the hormone replacements, birth control and other estrogens we get exposed to in the food supply.  All these estrogen toxins place a massive burden on our body’s ability to detoxify.  And with all those SNPs out there in the general population, its not wonder that many people are suffering from choline deficiency and gallbladder disease.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.

By looking at research like the kind Dr. Rostenberg is discussing in this video, it becomes clear that gallbladder disease is a result of a methylation imbalance.  The cause of the methylation problem could be purely genetic, but most likely its some combination of diet, lifestyle, environment AND genetics.  Older women especially are susceptible to gallbladder issues since they have spent more time in their lives with more exposure to estrogen.  Remember the more estrogen we are exposed to, the more METHYL groups we need!  If we happen to have COMT issues then we need to be even more vigilant to make sure we are breaking down estrogen in a healthy way, every day!  And I wish I could tell you everything would be fine after menopause when estrogen levels drop.  But the loss of estrogen at mid-life or through surgical menopause creates its own set of problems.  Low estrogen lowers choline production and this makes men, postmenopausal women, and any woman/man with PEMT SNPs at risk of brain, liver and gallbladder dysfunction.  Choline is the SECOND most important methyl donor in the body and picks up the slack when folate levels drop too low.

Confused yet?  Don’t be.  Just watch the video and stay tuned for more information on this critical issue.  What you need to know is that working on a plan to optimize your genetics can optimize your life.  It will help improve your gallbladder and hormone function regardless of your age or past history.  Dr. Rostenberg is an expert in the field of methylation research.  He can help you uncover the genetic causes of your health problem and gets moving forward!  If you would like help with your methylation genetics to heal your gallbladder and balance hormones, please contact Dr. Rostenberg at Red Mountain Natural Medicine today.
