Today we’re going to talk about a unique way to cleanse a fatty liver. These tips may seem counterintuitive at first, but they work. The liver is about 3 and a half pounds, sits over the right side of the body, and has over 500 different functions. When someone starts to develop a fatty liver, there can be no symptoms at all. But, eventually, the person may start to develop a gut, and as the condition becomes more advanced, they may start to notice symptoms of a fatty liver, such as: • Fatigue • Weakness • Nausea • Abdominal pain • Right shoulder pain • Pain in the upper right trap • Headaches on the right side • Pain in the right rhomboid After years of inflammation from having a fatty liver, cirrhosis (scar tissue) builds up on the liver and can cause the person to lose the function of the liver and lose the ability to detoxify. It can also lead to the building up of excessive amounts of cortisol (the stress hormone) or excessive amounts of estrogen. A functional liver is really important in the detoxification and regulation of these two hormones. The other problem when you have less liver function is you get less bile production. This situation can lead to the inability to break down toxic waste and fats, and the inability to absorb certain vitamins and nutrients like vitamins A, D, E, K, omega 3 fatty acids, and more. There are two different categories of a fatty liver: • Fatty Liver – caused by drinking too much alcohol. • Non-Alcoholic Fatty liver (NAFL) – can be developed by eating poorly. The big thing that causes a fatty liver is fructose in the form of high fructose corn syrup. It is 20x more likely to cause fatty liver than any other sugars. Two of the most important nutrients for correcting or reversing a fatty liver are methionine and choline, and they are in foods that are higher in fat and protein. Fatty Liver Cleansing Tips: • Do a combination of cruciferous vegetables and fattier proteins (egg yolks, fish – but make sure they are grass-fed) • Get rid of the toxins and fat from the liver by doing the healthy ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting • Take choline as a supplement (400 to 500mg) • You can get methionine from quality protein Dr. Eric Berg DC Bio: Dr. Berg, age 55, is a chiropractor who specializes in Healthy Ketosis & Intermittent Fasting.
