Biliary dyskinesia, “congestive gallbladder”, thick bile are a neurological problem. The contraction of the gallbladder causes the coordinated work of the autonomic nervous system located in the brain and spinal cord.
In the autonomic nervous system, the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions are distinguished. An increase in the tone of the parasympathetic nervous system leads to a contraction of the gallbladder wall and relaxation of the sphincters, that is, to the emptying of the biliary tract. An increase in the tone of the sympathetic nervous system causes relaxation of the gallbladder wall and contraction of the sphincter, which causes the accumulation of bile in the bile ducts.
Causes of biliary dyskinesia
What is the cause of biliary dyskinesia in children and adults, because this disease is detected on ultrasound in babies 5 years old and younger?
In adults, the problem occurs as a result of:
- consumption of hydrogenated fats;
- undergoing courses of antibiotic therapy, taking NSAIDs and other drugs;
- intermittent fasting;
- accumulation of cellulite;
- fasting for weight loss.
Back in 1992, Ya.S. Zimmerman discovered that with dyskinesia, degenerative changes appear in the receptors of nerve cells in neurons, and then in the mucous membrane and muscle layer of the biliary tract. This all further provokes the development of the disease and inflammation. One of the main nerves that cause the biliary tract to empty is the vagus nerve. It leaves the brain, located between the temporal and occipital bones, passes under the muscles of the neck and innervates all internal organs (see Figure 1). Traumatic childbirth leads to compression of this nerve, which further leads to dyskinesia.
But the child has not yet had time to eat tens of kilograms of hydrogenated fats, to undergo repeated antibiotics with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, to go hungry at intervals, accumulate cellulite and fight for harmony by the fasting method.
“Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract occur in 85.9% of children with birth trauma.” (Yatsyk G.V., 2005)
Diagnosis of biliary dyskinesia
How can you independently suspect biliary dyskinesia in a child? Look at his neck: if you find a lower shoulder on the right, and the ear on the right is higher, then the likelihood of formed dyskinesia is very high (see Figure 2).
Treatment of biliary dyskinesia
Without restoring the normal innervation of the biliary tract, treatment with choleretic drugs is ineffective. Applied kinesiology diagnostic and treatment methods make it possible to identify and effectively treat these diseases.
You can undergo a full examination, get professional advice and the help of a specialist (therapist, practicing applied kinesiology, nutritionist) at the Amel Dental clinic in Dnipro. To sign up for a consultation, leave a request on our website, and the clinic administrator will contact you to clarify the date and time of the appointment.
