Gall bladder

In Chinese Metaphysics or TCM, The Nature of Flower represents the Gall Bladder in the human body. The Gall Bladder likes to be gentle!


The above table highlighted represents the "Gall Bladder". If your health chart appears anyone of those, you may have chances of having Gall Bladder problems!


Understanding the Gall Bladder




The main purpose of the gallbladder (Flower) is to store bile, or gall. The gallbladder is part of the biliary system and serves as a reservoir for bile, which is produced by the liver (Tree). The liver produces the bile and then it flows through the bile ducts into the gallbladder. The gallbladder releases the bile in response to a hormone called cholecystokinin, which is released from the small intestine (Sun). When the bile is released, it is released into the small intestine and its purpose is to break down large fat molecules into smaller ones. After the fat is absorbed, the bile is also absorbed and transported back to the liver for reuse.


When food containing fat (and amino acids) enters the digestive tract (Soil), it stimulates the secretion of cholecystokinin (CCK) from I cells of the duodenum and jejunum. In response to CCK, the adult human gallbladder, which stores about 50 millilitres (1.7 U.S. fl oz; 1.8 imp fl oz) of bile, contracts and releases its contents into the duodenum. The bile, originally produced in the liver, emulsifies fats in partly digested food.


During storage in the gallbladder, bile becomes more concentrated which increases its potency and intensifies its effect on fats.


In 2009, it was proposed that the gallbladder (Flower) can produce several pancreatic hormones, including insulin.
