What is the best way to thin out our bile and ensure we have a healthy liver and gall bladder? Dr. Jockers is being interviewed by Dr. Sharon Stills today, as they discuss the top foods, herbs, and healing strategies to improve your liver and gall bladder health. 

Dr. Stills is interviewing Dr. Jockers today as part of the Mastering The Meno(Pause) Transition Summit.

Dr. Jockers is sharing his journey into natural health as well as offering valuable insight into different liver enzymes and liver enzyme ratios, and how to read and understand the lab biomarkers you get when you test your liver. 

Learn about how the bile in your small intestine helps to alkalize your small intestine, sterilizing bacteria and different microbes in the small intestine, and emulsifying fats. 

Some people have thick, sluggish bile that congests the bile ducts, which prevents our liver and gall bladder from detoxifying and getting rid of bad estrogens that damage and throw off our hormones. This, in turn, can lead to a wide range of health problems. 

Thankfully, Dr. Jockers is on hand with great advice on how to keep your microbiome and gut healthy so you can function at your best. If you know of someone looking to improve their liver or gall bladder health, please send this podcast over to them.


“A lot of people think we store toxins in our liver. We don’t. We store toxins in our fat cells. The liver is what deactivates toxins.”
