5 Dietary Steps To Get Rid Of Fatty Liver Disease

liver-cleansing-herbs

As one of the leading causes of chronic liver injury, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease affects about 20 to 40 percent of American population. Even though this condition is quite common, most people don’t realize that they have fatty liver disease because they often minimal or no symptoms. The only way to discover it is to have testing done, e.g. an ultrasound or CT scan.

 

What Is Fatty Liver Disease?

There is a strong link between fatty liver disease and other pathological conditions, including cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, or obesity. There are two types of fatty liver disease: non-alcoholic and alcoholic. Both are often associated with fatigue or slight pain in the upper right portion of the abdomen. Fatty liver disease is the result of extra fat that has accumulated in the liver. While it is normal for the liver to contain some fat, a person with fat buildup of 5 to 15 percent of the liver’s total weight is considered to have fatty liver disease. The amount of fat in the liver will determine the severity of the disease and whether or not someone experiences symptoms.

 

Non-alcoholic Vs. Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease:

Whether someone consumes alcohol or not, fat can slowly start to build up in the liver. The only difference between non-alcoholic and alcoholic fatty liver disease is that the buildup of fat in the liver in a non-alcoholic case is not the result of alcohol consumption. How the fat accumulates, however, is not dissimilar to how fat accumulates in alcoholic fatty liver disease. The regular consumption of large amounts of alcohol is directly linked to increased fat buildup in the liver.

 

There are currently two primary categories for naturally remedying fatty liver disease: pharmaceutical therapies and lifestyle interventions (e.g. physical exercise, dietary modification, and weight reduction). Recent studies have emerged about the benefits of lifestyle interventions for people with fatty liver disease. Five great dietary tips are listed below.

 

Foods To Avoid:

There are certain foods you should avoid when trying to improve the health of your liver. Alcohol is the number one thing you should avoid, especially if you have alcoholic fatty liver disease. It is integral to avoid excess caffeine, packaged foods, refined sugars, artificial ingredients, refined grains, uncooked shellfish, certain medications, or fruits/vegetables that are sprayed with herbicides and pesticides. The National Institute of Health also provides a database, which details whether or not any medication, supplement, food or herb may be linked to improper liver function.

 

Milk Thistle:

Within the past ten years, researchers have published over 10,000 papers on the anti-inflammatory, chemopreventive, and antioxidant effects of silybin and silymarin, derivatives of the milk thistle plant. Consumption of milk thistle has also been linked to the production of enzymes, which help the liver eliminate toxins. Additionally, the antioxidant effects of milk thistle may reduce oxidative stress and modulate metabolic pathways.

 

Foods That Boost Liver Function:

It is wise to consume lots of plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats, primarily because many of these foods work to boost liver health. Many liver-boosting foods have been known to decrease inflammation, while aiding the body with insulin production, a common problem for those with fatty liver disease. Great foods to boost your liver include artichokes, bitter leafy greens (mustard greens, arugula, & dandelion greens), green tea, avocados, flaxseeds, walnuts, chia seeds, and foods that are rich in vitamin E.

 

Cleanse Your Body:

Sometimes you need to hit the reset button, especially when you consider that we are frequently exposed to toxins, pollutants, and harmful chemicals that can damage the human body. Exposure to industrial chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, and certain medications can impair liver function and contribute to fatty liver disease. You can try the Dherbs Full Body Cleanse and then follow it up with our 10-day Liver Cleanse to address the condition.

 

Garlic:

The use of garlic as an herbal remedy dates back 6,000 years to various civilizations in Asia, the Mediterranean, and Egypt. Recent studies, however, have found that raw garlic works to improve insulin resistance, lipid metabolism, and helps to fight oxidative stress. The enzymes in garlic may even possess liver regenerative abilities, but more research needs to be done on that matter. As for now, garlic is a beneficial food to include in your diet if you suffer from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

    Q: I've been doing raw for about 28 days and I am on day 9 of the FULL BODY DETOX. I have noticed that my hands are orange occasionally. This also was present before doing the raw fast and detox as well. I looked on your website to see if you had any articles pertaining to this but didn't see any. I have read up a little on jaundice, but I experience this only on my hands (palms only, not in eyes or anywhere else). 5 or 6 years ago I was experiencing pain in my liver area and began changing my diet. Shortly after that I went to see an acupuncture therapist for a back injury (car accident) and he asked had I'd been experiencing pain anywhere else and I told him in the liver area. He treated me for both. I never have pain in my liver area again but was unsure what the orange hands are all about. I don't know if that is too much information, but I'd really appreciate any information you can give me on this issue.

    A:

    Orange or yellowish hands or feet denote TOXICITY. The body is toxic, especially the liver and needs to be cleansed periodically. Give the FULL BODY DETOX a try! Soak your hands in hot water (as hot as you can bear it) and 1 box of sea salt for about 30 minutes daily. I had this problem some years ago. I was going through times, had been through so much. I went and got a manicure one day and the Asian lady could read palms and told me I needed to relax. I had been doing everything by myself for a long time in life and needed to rest. She kept emphasizing rest. While this was true, my body also needed to detox. The anger in me at certain people and certain circumstances was stored in my liver (the liver stores anger). But in order to start a new life and live life anew, I had to work on my LIVE-R.

    Q: I bought the 10 day Liver cleanse, & I have a question about the average weight loss. Is it really between 10-25 pounds that could be released?

    A: All of the Cleanses are going to help with weight loss because of the diet that it requires you to keep.  When you eliminate waste and replenish the health of your liver, it helps with necessary weight loss.  Your body has it's own intelligence, it won't allow you to lose necessary weight if you're already at the appropriate weight for your height.  You can lose anywhere from 10-25 pounds on the 10 Day Liver Cleanse because the liver detoxes the entire body when it's functioning at a high level.

    Q: My mother has just found out from a blood test that Hep C was found in her liver/ blood. We are believers in Jesus Christ and His Word, so we don't like to speak negative words that are contrary to what we believe and hope to manifest from the spiritual into the natural. The condition of her liver is to the point that her skin has erupted from head to toe with blisters, rash, etc. We have always been herb heads and into natural healing. We have read your article on Hepatitis and I found it to be a true answer to prayer, you described my mother to a T. This information has helped me to better understand my mother and have compassion toward her negative attitude she struggles with, so I am grateful to you for that.

    Q: I ordered a several different extracts i.e. ANTI VIRAL, LIVER, COLON, ANTI VIRAL to do a body cleanse because I can't take pills, but I was wondering if these were actually for kids because its sweet and doesn't seem to be as affective for adults. Is this the case are these for kids? Or should I just keep taking them? If not when are the liquid body cleansers available?

    A:

    EXTRACTS ARE NATURALLY SWEET DUE TO THE VEGETABLE GLYCERIN USED TO MAKE THEM. CAPSULES ARE BY FAR MORE POTENT THAT EXTRACTS SO IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE EXTRACT MAY BE, IT WILL NOT BE AS POTENT AS CAPSULES.

    Q: I've ordered the 20 day body cleanse for my husband who has been diagnose with (RCC) Renal Cell Cancer which is in the kidney & spread to the Right lung and liver. They were going to take the kidney out today but could not because the right lung has filled with fluid it is being drained now they have started on the chemo pill SUNITINIB I've told the Dr. about the dherbs pills he said it was fine for him to take them along with the chemo pill he's has been on raw for 12 days also taking 2ounces of pure wheat grass a day is there anything else he can take to kill the cancer cells in the lung and liver?

    A:

    The chemo pill is not going to help him because it's a poison - his body won't recognize it! He'd do fine with just the raw foods, wheat grass, and FULL BODY DETOX herbs. But it is your choice to do whatever you are going to do. Cells become cancerous because of starvation of OXYGEN. He should add 30 drops of OXY-DROPS to every glass of drinking water.?
