Estrogen Dominance and the Gall Bladder

That's what I'm reading about tonight. Here is a sampling of what I'm looking at:

  I got a couple of interesting tidbits from this article. For instance, did you know that the bile is very alkaline? This counters the acidity of stomach acids and apparently that's important so that pancreatic and intestinal enzymes can do their thing. Another interesting thing: fiber is important for a bunch of reasons, but one of those is to help bile stay the correct consistency - it keeps it from getting too thick, which is badness. This article has a couple of practical tips for avoiding gall bladder disease.

Estrogen Dominance
 Huh. Looks like the funky way my body deals with water may be related to too much estrogen. Among other things.

Books that look interesting:
Hormones Health and Happiness by Steven F. Hotze, M.D.
Dr. John Lee's Hormone Balance Made Simple by John R. Lee & Virginia Hopkins
Why Stomach Acid is Good For You by Jonathan V Wright, MD 

This site has some book reviews by a doctor - which are particularly nice since he mentions conflicts of interest that that the author may or may not have disclosed.
