The Gallbladder & Vitamin A, D, E  and K2 Connection Part 3 Dr. Eric Berg DC

The Gallbladder & Vitamin A, D, E and K2 Connection Part 3 Dr. Eric Berg DC

hey it’s Dr. Berg here in this video
we’re going to talk about the amazing gallbladder part 3 in part 1 we talked
about the function of the gallbladder and it releases bile to help you break
down fats in part two we talked about referred pain in all the different pain
sources it can go to that are up in the right shoulder blade and neck and area
right here and then now in part three we’re going to talk about some
additional important functions that you need to know the other thing that I
wanted to mention is that one of the triggers for production of bile is to
have a very strong acid in your stomach if you know anything about pH when the
pH goes down that’s more that’s more acid if it goes up it’s less acid and so
if you go from a pH between 1 and 3 that’s like battery acid it’s so strong
and that is the acid that you need in your stomach when the acid starts going
up to high then like a 4 or 5 you’re not going to be able to release the bile
from this and the way that you’re going to know that you lose your stomach acids
is the valve on top of the stomach that keeps the acid into the stomach will
start opening up they call that GERD so GERD really or acid reflux is low
stomach acids not high stomach acids and those low stomach acids are not able to
trigger the closure of that valve and that in the acid reflux will splash up
into the esophagus so so if you if you have acid reflux or GERD then we know
you’re not going to have enough bile okay so that’s just an indication to a
clue to be able to kind of think with this system and how it works they’re
both connected so you want to understand the whole situation and just in the side
note one of the most common reasons why people don’t have enough stomach acid is
they’re on low sodium diets so when you or salt diets sodium chloride chloride
helps break up to make hydrochloric acid and if you don’t have enough salt like
people are having a low salt diet you start your pH becomes more alkaline and
you have a lot of digestive problems so that’s as
side note okay now if this bile is in sufficient amounts you’ll be able to
absorb vitamin A and but if you don’t have enough bile your vitamin A
deficiency will manifest as night blindness can’t see in the dark it’s
difficult to see when the headlights are shining in your eye also your skin will
be dry you’ll have all sorts of problems with your skin little lose little bumps
all over the place and also the lining of your skin on the inside of your
sinuses and your throat will be affected so laryngitis sinusitis anything internal the lining on the inside of your body is controlled by vitamin A so
here you are taking all this vitamin A but it’s not working because you don’t
have enough bile right you may see because bile is recycled you may not
have enough because it’s not being recycled or it’s just not being produced
and so I always recommend to take some purified bile salts to be able to see if
that helps you and if it does then we know we can start to improve the your
own body’s production but it’s a real simple inexpensive way to test to see if
that is your problem okay and again I’m not diagnosing any diseases here these
this is just stuff to think with so you and your doctor can work together and
give them other solutions other than removing this thing
okay so we’ve added vitamin A also if you’re low in vitamin A you’re going to
get acne I mean take a look at Accutane what does that contain that’s for acne
what is it it’s concentrated vitamin A but it’s in a toxic amount that’s why
there’s a lot of side effects so if you have enough vitamin A because you have enough bile you’re probably not going to get acne okay vitamin D
is vitamin D important oh my goodness vitamin D basically controls the
absorption of calcium and so if you can’t absorb calcium you have all sorts
of issues calcium is not just bone building but it has to do with muscle
and heart contraction it has to do with cellular communication it has to do with
improving the immune system it has a lot to do with a lot of different functions
because it’s the main mineral that helps communication between the cells it
actually carries hormones between cells so vitamin D is very important and so
people a lot of times are so low vitamin D levels but it’s not because they’re
not consuming food with vitamin D it’s because they don’t have enough power to
absorb it yeah so so how do you know if you don’t have enough bile well just go
down the list do I have bloating burping belching constipation do I have right shoulder pain
these are just you know classic symptoms of low bile ok vitamin D now we have
vitamin k2 this is a really important vitamin I talked about in some of the
other videos but vitamin k2 is different than vitamin k1 vitamin k2 is a calcium
transporter it basically keeps the calcium out of the soft tissues now if
you look at a lot of health conditions whether you’re getting older and you’re
getting stiffer you’re getting arthritis hardening of the arteries it’s going to
cause high blood pressure strokes because there’s calcium plaquing in the
brain cataracts on the eye that’s calcium in
the eye kidney stones gallstones spurring all this extra calcium in the
soft tissues that is because you don’t have enough vitamin K that’s why and so
if you’re taking vitamin K and you don’t see improvement in this calcium issue
it’s because you probably don’t have enough bile so you have to think of
the things the cascade effect that can happen you have to think backwards and
see what’s before vitamin K2 vitamin k2 is in all the grass fed animal
products like grass-fed butter grass-fed beef you know that type of thing it’s in
a lot of the things that people are telling you to avoid they say avoid fat
well you need vitamin k2 I take it as a supplement because I I have a lot of
soft tissue calcium because of my old injuries and the spurring in my back
that I had so I’m using that to help clean that up
the k2 is really important in a lot of conditions especially if your body’s
getting stiff and it’s turning into a stone but again we want to make sure we
have enough bilel so soft tissue calcium issues can be caused by lack of bile
all right so that’s part three I’ll see you in a part 4

    Wow, love this video. Very interesting and informative. Makes sense why I was getting so much acne when I would normally get 1 pimple once a month. A lot of things make sense now. Thank God you've been helping me or else my whole face and back would of been full with acne.

  • wjb722

    didn't you also take tons of antacids, Dr. Berg? you mentioned it in a heartburn vid, i think. another contributor to your body's overload of calcium?

  • jschrager23

    how much butter would one have to consume to have the required amount to be healthy. Or would it be better to supplement?

  • Margrett Chisholm

    thanks i was grown on a low sodium diet and I ended up with gall bladder problem so had to remove my GB, I will have to do better for my daughter.

  • Margrett Chisholm

    will I have enough bile since I removed my gall bladder

  • Ivan Ivanov

    Good info the greatest success that i've had was by using the Fergs Treatment Crusher (i found it on google) – I found it the most incredible resource that I have ever followed.

  • Beverly McFadden

    Great Video

  • ajay saini

    great information

  • Carol Rose

    Thank you

  • Victoria Candiotti-Langan

    I ordered your Gallbladder supplement and I have bentonite hcl already. Hope it helps me

  • Leon

    I have high sodium intake in my food. But still have right shoulder pain. How to fix this?

  • Mr. Husky

    You just need to become a MD so you can cut out those disclaimers, help people the whole way and get those ignorant doctors out of the way.

  • Jaz

    How do I find out what Ph level my stomach is????

  • MischievousKittie

    is bile salts, safe to use after you loose your gallbladder?

  • FinallyFree

    just a little feedback for your wonderful videos. .. it was a struggle to find all 4 videos for this series (and other multiple part videos).

    if you could add links over your video it would help people so much

  • Hubert Farnsworth


  • kim greenlee

    Will taking bile salts cause the gallbladder to produce even less and eventually stop working completely?

  • Ithaca Comments

    I have GERD from a hiatal hernia.

  • Robin Maynard

    this video contradicts itself with regard to Ph discussion! First he says a Ph of 1-3 is very acidic, then he says when the acid goes up to a 4 or 5 – goes up "too high" it is more acidic and leads to gerd – don't you mean LESS acidic (and more alkaline)?

  • yogesh shidhaye

    Hi dr
    Pls pls. Make the video on gallbladder polyp
    including its remedies & cure

  • J Smith

    How do I correct these problems?

    If acid reflex is from too low stomach acid, why do I feel instantly better if i take a dose of bicarb when my stomach is upset and I'm getting acid reflex?

  • Ginger Glover

    Come up up an office in North Dallas…😄

  • sexiwow

    I have two gallstones and I am experiencing so many problems . shocking bloating and discomfort I have had sickness a few times some gallbladder attacks .. Everything you say on this video makes perfect sense to me I have had a endoscopy and they hve diagnosed hiatus hernia and GERD and a stricture .. They prescribed me Lansoprazole . I don't want to remove my gallbladder but I am worried I really want to take a bile acid drug called Actigall but this is my question will taking this make my GERD worse and is it contradictory to healing the gut or not ? I have also had a frozen shoulder and had the pains you describe up the neck into the head and down right arm etc .. I am certain it is all linked up .. Please can you tell me will I be ok to take a bile acid like the actigall that I have requested from my doctor here in the UK to try to melt the stones .. x x x Thank you in advance I think you are amazing and you are def the worlds best knowledge on this subject , just listening to your wisdom makes perfect sense It is just a shame that our Doctors do not explain it all as brilliantly as you do , all they want to do is whip out your gallbladder

  • Gry Ranfelt

    My father has acid reflux. How do you get the system started? You say the gallbladder is affected by pH – so could you take stomach acid/HCl capsules to get it going again?

  • ezpic2

    Do recommend gallbladder cleanses? I don’t see you promote this anywhere…?

  • splodgebenson

    Would being on Lanzoprazole/Omerprazol long term affect this?

  • Al Canales

    I did your Quiz and you recommended Estrogen. I just ordered it today and now I see this that I need your Gallblader formula and that Estrogen is a problem so should I take it?

  • Carianin 52

    Wish I had found this out years ago!

  • Boshra Shalaby


  • tegma

    Is it possible to follow Keto to lose weight when having had gallbladder removed? I have constant acid reflux and the Keto plan does nothing to help. How can I lose the weight not having a gallbladder and a slow thyroid has been a major cause of? I've been using Keto but only lost 1 pound in almost a month. That's discouraging!

  • Suzi Hazlove

    Thank you.

  • Harry Porter

    I have all these symptoms. I've seen seeing doctors for over a year now for these reasons. Not 1 doctor has mentioned any of the things you have. I'm so glad I found you. I have so much hope today. Thanks Doc 😊

  • Social Web

    Oh no I just got by gallbladder out. My skin has been messed up for ages

  • haus.of.edwards 8

    What if you have a fatty liver with a gallstone and low stomach acid what do you fix first??😫😭

  • Sophie K

    Supplementing is one of the keys to good health. My friend had gallstones and his naturopathic doctor gave him a stone breaker tincture and poof the stones broke up and it was gone and he kept his gallbladder !  In China,  they very rarely if ever remove gallbladder or appendix they see every organ as vital for the human body.

  • Freestyleliving

    They say Asians have a low salt diet in Okinawan will you explain that

  • Marianne Dippenaar

    Where do y get purified bile salts in SA

  • Shalini Rshekar

    Can we take bile salts when we have gallstones?

  • Angel McGlasson

    Amazing Information!!!!! Thank You!!!

  • sylvie roy

    You're amazing as usual. I learn so much from your videos.

  • Adam Khan

    I have a question, if one is taking ox bile salts does this help extract vitamins from the consumed fats?

    And is the bile supplements as effective as your own bile (is it as concentrated as how it is in your gallbladder-15 to 20x)

    Also does more bile in your system by supplementation and your liver producing bile dissolve stones and clear them out?

    I need answers thank you

  • Jessica Allison

    What if I’ve always had a HIGH sodium diet… and still get acid reflux? 🤔

  • Laj

    I have it on the left side. I guess it's pancreas.

  • にょろ~ん♂

    Firstly, your triglycerides get higher, then your liver becomes fatty, next your gallbladder gets stones, after that your pancreas gets stones or chronic pancreatitis, your destiny is one of acute pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer. You need some calcium and vitamin D3/K2. It takes long time at least half a year to get enough of them. I took 2 years but still not enough for Vitamin D. Fats mean the body is collecting fat soluble nutritions and saving them for stresses when it decreases..

  • NorthStar Great Danes

    Boy, I needed this video a long time ago. I had sludging in my GB years ago and have suffered GERD for years! Yes I have night blindness too, dry skin, chronic sinusitis… you have saved me! Had another GB attack last night, after s supposed keto friendly cheesecake(2 pieces) boy, your videos really helped. Took a good dose of ACV, your Gallbladder capsule with relief within an hour! Thanks!

  • CaptureGamingHD

    can you make a video from bile reflux(gastritis) please and how to fix?? my doctor say i have to take acid blocker for the rest of my life! ( I'm 21!) I don't believe that this is to cure the root issue.

  • Cornelia Loubser

    Hi Dr, what if yove got to much bile in the gallbladder?

  • Robnation

    1:32 …and that's why my neck and right shoulder hurts (referred pain, see part 2). Blood test for Vitamin D found it was really low. lack of A and K2 might be an issue too. 4:45

  • Robnation

    4:45 Yes. Thanks Dr Berg! 35 years and thousands of dollars later…

  • Darwin Infante

    But this doctor always says you must remove you GB stupid money making thats very essential organ

  • Christopher A Nichol


  • Cortney Ratliff

    PLEASE do a video on what to do after gallbladder removal. I've bought the Gallbladder Formula, but I'd love additional info. Thanks!
