Liver Problems

The liver is the largest internal organ and gland in the human body and it is the body’s major filtering organ. It’s the body’s first line of defense, when it comes to toxicity. The liver’s primary function is to limit the amount of toxins that enter the human body. The thing about these toxins is that they are typically consumed voluntarily. Examples of these toxins are below:

  • Alcohol consumption
  • Drug use (legal and illegal)
  • Smoking
  • Eating processed foods
  • Ingesting chemicals such as:
    • Sugar
    • Salt
    • MSG
    • Aspartame
    • Sodium nitrate
    • Propylene glycol
    • Lake dyes
    • Saccharin
    • And many, many more.

 

A healthy liver helps you live a healthy life. The liver has to work hard, having over 500 responsibilities. It is served by two blood supplies. The hepatic artery conveys oxygenated blood to the organ, while hepatic portal vein conveys nutrient-filled blood from the stomach and intestines. The liver typically holds about one pint of blood, or about 13% of the body’s total blood supply.

 

Liver Problems

Now, let’s take a look at a few common ailments of the liver.

Hepatitis

Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver, and about 300 million people worldwide are affected by hepatitis C. Roughly 3.9 million (about 1.8 percent of the population in the US) people in the US have chronic hepatitis C.

Hepatitis B Statistics In the United States

  • 12 million Americans have been infected (1 out of 20 people).
  • More than one million people are chronically infected .
  • Up to 100,000 new people will become infected each year.
  • 5,000 people will die each year from hepatitis B and its complications.
  • Approximately 1 health care worker dies each day from hepatitis B.

 

Hepatitis is caused by excess mucus accumulation in and around the liver due, which is primarily due to acidity (from acid-forming food and beverage consumption). The liver becomes enlarged when it is inflamed, just like every other organ in the body. Hepatitis is mainly caused by poor or an insalubrious diet (excess meat and dairy consumption; refined and processed food products) and intake of drugs, especially pharmaceutical drugs (which include pre-natal pills, explaining why so many American babies are born with hepatitis or jaundice).

 

Pharmaceutical drugs, unlike all natural herbs, cause LIVER TOXICITY (liver disease). It’s a shame that hospitals (and OBGYN’s) have women ingesting toxins under the guise of pre-natal nutrition. Commercial and pharmaceutical grade pre-natal tablets/pills are toxic and poisonous.

 

Jaundice

Jaundice, also known as Iciterus, refers to the yellowish appearance of the skin or whites of the eyes. If there is too much Bilirubin (pigmentation) in the blood, then the skin or whites of the eye will have a yellow tinge. Bilirubin is naturally in the body, but the liver usually gets rid of it, in addition to old red blood cells. Jaundice is not a disease, rather, it is usually the result of an underlying liver disorder.

 

Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis of the Liver is an abnormal condition where permanent scarring is done to the liver. The most common reason for Cirrhosis is Alcoholism, but it can also result from Hepatitis and other conditions. The liver helps detox harmful substances from the body, cleans the blood, and makes vital nutrients. When the liver is injured it attempts to repair itself, ultimately creating more and more scar tissue. The progression of Cirrhosis makes it difficult for the liver to function.

 

Melancholy and the Liver

Melancholia is the result of the production of black bile from the liver instead of green bile. Many people who drink alcohol become depressed during or after drinking. Intoxicants causes the liver to release black bile and shortly after, extreme sadness or depression can follow.

 

The Liver and Anger

Ever organ can house a negative emotion, and the liver hold the negative emotion of anger. Yes, our anger is stored in our liver. This is why cleansing can induce some agitation. Alcoholic beverages cause stored anger in the liver to be released. Inebriated people can become angry quickly. It’s not so much that it is the liquor, but rather the effect of the liquor on the liver, or what it causes the liver to do.

 

Dietary Intervention

Changing your diet can improve liver health. Liver-toxic foods like alcohol, coffee, processed foods and excess fats need to be avoided.

Natural Healing Soutions

Herbs

Great hepatic (herbs with an affinity for the liver) herbs include:

  • Milk Thistle Seed
  • Dandelion Root
  • Boldo Leaf
  • Chanca Piedra
  • Peony Root
  • Quassia Bark
  • Fumitory
  • Gentian Root
  • Bupleurem
  • Fenugreek Seed
  • Goldenseal
  • Barberry
  • Oregon Grape
  • Fringetree Bark
  • Wahoo Bark
  • Chicory
  • Artichoke
  • Tumeric
  • Cascara Sagrada
  • Black Root

 

Olive Oil

Olive oil also helps the liver. Olive oil pulls toxins from the liver. Olive oil is also a mild chologogue (see Dherbs.com Herbal Glossary) and enhances and increases the natural secretion of bile.

 

Coffee Enema

Coffee enemas are great for liver cleansing purposes. Coffee when entered via the rectum causes the liver to dump off toxins like a dump truck. The caffeine does not enter the bloodstream like it does when ingested via the mouth when entered through the rectum. A coffee enema can be performed once a month or whenever you feel like performing one. Make sure you use organic coffee beans (which you can find at a good health food store such as Whole Foods Market).

 

Castor Oil Pack

The castor oil pack application works wonders for cleansing the liver. You take castor oil (which you can warm up if you like), apply it to your skin (above the liver, located on the right side of your body). Next, take some plastic (the kind you get at the dry cleaners – the thin, clear kind) and apply it over the oiled skin. Then, apply a hot pack (preferably a cotton flannel pack) over the plastic. This process works by allowing the castor oil to penetrate the skin and enter into the bloodstream that eventually finds its way to the liver whereby it stimulates cleansing of the tissues of the liver.

    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.

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.

    A:

    Hepatitis C is easy to knock out! She just needs to detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and drink Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root tea.

    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'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.?

Could they be too strong for me and if not how many times a month should I do it?

    Coffee enemas are one of the best remedies for any liver disease. You may perform coffee enemies weekly (twice a week) to help your condition. Also, take 3 capsules of our Liver Formula 4 times a day and drink lemon water (water with lemon juice squeezed in it).

    If you really want to accelerate healing, perform our Full Body Cleanse and perform those enemas while doing the cleanse.

    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 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: What canIuse to help these issues

    A: We recommend starting off with 10 Day Liver Cleanse to specifically help replenish the health of the organ. It’s best to move on to The Full Body Cleanse after. In doing The Full Body Cleanse you’re detoxing all of your major organs including the liver, giving your overall body the reset it needs. The regimens and adjusted diet helps recondition your body function properly. After cleansing you can help maintain your liver health by continuing with the Liver-Gallbladder-Spleen Formula. Repeating the 10 Day Liver Cleanse would be ideal to further help the healing process of the organ.  By day 10 on the Full Body Cleanse, most people don’t have an issue with high blood pressure. When you eliminate the foods that contributes to issue and you replace it with foods that naturally lower your blood pressure, your body knows how to normalize itself.
