What Natural or Holistic Path I Would Take If Diagnosed With Fatty Liver
by Thomas Martin
Wow - I went to a presentation last night by a cardiologist. She talked primarily about metabolic syndrome (which I will address in another post) but what really blew me away was when a member of the audience asked what she could do about fatty liver. I almost fell out of my chair when the doctor said, "There is nothing you can do."
I wish these doctors, when giving up all hope, would at least have the decency to say, "There is nothing within the Big Pharmaceutical machine that can help you."
Fatty liver is actually rather easy to initially reverse. It is a simple morning beverage. It is so simple, many will ignore this post.
Each morning, on rising, I will warm some water in a pan (never in the microwave oven), to a tepid range of about 115 degrees F. I will take an organic lemon, squeeze the juice into an 8oz to 12oz mug. I will pour the warm water over the juice. To make the beverage even more powerful, I will add 2 teaspoons of organic, virgin coconut oil. If necessary, for taste or if I had allergies, I will add 2 teaspoons of local, raw, organic honey.
I will also take Milk Thistle extract each day.
I will increase my intake of the following vegetables: Cauliflower, Broccoli, Leeks, Onions, and Cabbage.
It is also necessary to increase the amount of protein in my diet as this helps the toxins in my body gets flushed out. The easiest way to do this is to lightly fry two eggs from cage-free chickens in a little bit of pasture butter and eat them every morning. Eggs provide a nutritional powerhouse to our bodies and are one of nature's most complete foods.
I will also eliminate wheat (not just gluten), corn and soy from my diet. All three have been genetically modified and destroy the flora in my gut, which is so important for proper digestion of foods.
If I was a tea drinker, I would begin drinking green tea.
It is also important that I stop eating the foods which originally created the problem. I need to stop eating all genetically modified foods (GMOs). This includes all corn (especially high fructose corn syrup), soy (soybean oil, tofu, soy lecithin, soy protein, etc.), all wheat and I must stop using vegetable oils such as canola, corn, soybean and cottonseed. I will also follow the many other steps in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide To Chronic Good Health to ensure an optimally function body, one which can fight off most common, chronic diseases.
DISCLAIMER: I am in no way recommending treatments or cures on this blog. This blog is merely a compilation of what I have learned about a diet based, natural approach to health. I follow the steps I outline in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide To Chronic Good Health and know I will avoid almost every disease listed in this blog. On the other hand, I needed a place to write steps for specific ailments as I came across them. If you are looking for alternative therapies, I hope you can benefit from my research, especially if your doctor has told you "nothing more can be done for you."
