In order to prevent the toxins from defaulting back to the liver, a delicate balance of the mucus membranes of the intestinal tract should be achieved, they should not be too dry or too wet. The intestinal villi may also be compromised by some other factors, including stress, worry, processed food, coffee, soft drinks, food additives, and hyperacidity.
Moreover, the optimal bile flow from the liver is extremely important for our health, as the bile gobbles up fats and acts as the great immune system responder in the digestive tract.
It will gobble up heavy metals, parasites, pesticides, bad bacteria, and numerous other chemicals that can harm our body. In the case of plenty of fiber in the diet, the heavily loaded bile will be taken to the toilet.
On the contrary, if the diet is deficient in fiber, up to 94% of the bile gets reabsorbed back to the liver to be recycled, along with its toxins. Therefore, the liver can become overwhelmed as it is not expecting the return of these toxic fat cells.
Consequently, the liver can become congested over time and the bile can turn thick and sludgy, making it more difficult to break down the fat-soluble toxins, as it will be unable to buffer the stomach acids that start to enter the small intestine.
The acid irritates the villi, and leads to a production of more congestive, reactive mucus. This can also block the flow of pancreatic enzymes into the small intestine, and since the pancreas shares the common bile duct with the gallbladder, and when the flow is blocked or sluggish, the digestive process can be compromised.
