The best information comes from the researchers.  Why do we research?  To find out answers. 

The reason for this post is because of the comment I received from:

“This site is fake, they want u to buy liver flush.”

I’m wounded to the heart.  This is not a fake site.  Sure I have something that I think will help with liver pain.  I am not twisting anybodies arm to buy it.  I am not even pitching a sales pitch.  When we all share what we know and what has worked for us, it benefits everyone.  Any of you may tell what you have found to help with your liver problems.  How do we know what is out there if someone doesn’t tell us?

How do we know about new research?  Sometimes we just need a support group where we can talk and ask questions.  Everybody is different, but we are all the same.  We need to be understood and not left to figure things out by ourselves.

I want to say thank you for all of you who have commented on this blog. It isn’t a huge group, but it has helped me.

This blog is not a fake.  Yes, I have found something that I think is worthy of talking about.  But, I invite you to share what has worked for you as well.  There is never a ‘one and only’ cure all.

There is never one single reason for liver pain. Half the battle is figuring out what is the reason for your liver problem.  There are so many variables.  Talking to others and listening to what is out there is one of the best ways to help yourself.  Doctors agree the patient who takes an active interest is the patient who does the best.

Don’t be afraid to learn all you can.  Keep an open  mind.  And drink good water.  I guess if you could say I was pushing anything, it would be water.  How do you think to cleanse or heal the liver if what you have to wash it out with is dirty water?  Your body is made up of over  75% water.  The liver is the toxic treatment plant of your body. Your liver needs clean water to rid itself of the toxins it pulls out from the blood. 

So, if you are going to accuse me of selling anything….accuse me of selling water.


Do you know what a probiotic food is?

A probiotic food is food that contains live bacteria. Acidophilus in yogurt was the first probiotic food hailed to helped people who had difficulty digesting milk to be able to tolerate milk better. The specific bacteria used in probiotic food like acidophilus milk is Lactobacillus acidophilus.

A short list of probiotic food choices includes some soft cheeses, yogurt products, sauerkraut and many pickles.

Many people add probiotic bacteria to their food or take it in capsule form. However, it is unclear how well probiotic bacteria work. Lactobacillus GG, one of the newest probiotics, has shown that it can survive processing by the gut and be especially beneficial to the colon. Not all probiotics have shown evidence that they promote better intestinal health. Some studies do show that eating yogurt during antibiotic treatment has been shown in some studies to help prevent diarrhea. It has also been shown to be beneficial in reducing risk of yeast infections in women. This is good.

There are other ways to care for the liver such as eating probiotic-rich foods, regular exercise (walking, yoga or rebounding), and not overeating. Even resting more and napping can help to heal the liver. If the liver is overloaded, toxins build up and eventually the kidneys are left to deal with the problem. With both organs struggling to operate, the liver becomes enlarged.

If you have liver pain, you need something more than probiotics, but it is a good idea to add probiotic food to your diet. They taste good.

Have any of you considered what you feel as liver pain may be caused by a cysts? This would be a good even though the cause of cysts are unknown.

In most cases, liver cysts are benign. A liver cysts is a fluid filled cavity in the liver, and is not a serious condition. When a cysts gets big enough, it can cause pressure in the upper right part of the abdomen. Most can be detected with an ultrasound or CT scan.

If it is a cysts that needs attention, fluid can be drained to relieve liver pain. And no other attention is given it. Occasionally, if liver pain persists, the cysts can be surgically removed with little risk.

It is worth getting a diagnosis, as unidentified pain is always a reason for concern.  It is irritating when your concerns are not validated when going to a doctor.  Don’t be afraid to ask for an ultra sound.  It is your peace of mind at stake.  Stress plays a major part in our health or ill-health.

Learn to take care of yourself.  Take charge of your own health.

Ever had one of those terrible migraine headaches?  Taking Tynol with Coke use to be the prescribed treatment.  But if you have liver problems, new research is proving it to be a deadly combination.

In the October 2007 issue of Chemical Research in Toxicology, University of Washington researchers reported that those who consume caffeine with acetaminophen could be at a higher risk of liver damage.

Acetaminophen often has caffeine added because it enhances the effects of the painkiller. Although previous studies have linked alcohol consumption and acetaminophen to liver damage, this is the first study to link caffeine to the danger.

Keeping up with science’s discoveries has never been more important, as researchers demonstrate that pairing two common items can have devastating consequences to someone with an already compromised liver.

The University of Washington team found that caffeine can triple the amount of a toxic byproduct, N-acetyl-p-benzoquinone imine (NAPQI), an enzyme produced while breaking down acetaminophen. This enzyme is also responsible for the liver damage and failure in most toxic alcohol-acetaminophen interactions.

Acetaminophen poisoning accounts for over 56,000 emergency room visits in the United States each year. Acetaminophen is known to cause liver damage and even acute liver failure.

Reports say you don’t need to stop taking acetaminophens, just don’t take them while drinking caffeinated beverages.

Do you feel swelling, pressure, or dull ache under your rib cage? Have the anyone ever told you the liver doesn’t feel pain? Well, it is true.  If the liver is enlarged, it puts pressure on the lung and/or rib cage that causes the discomfort which is transmitted to the brain where the brain tells you there is something wrong in the area of the liver.

Don’t be deceived.  The liver doesn’t feel pain, you do.  But like anything else, liver pain is needed to let you know when something is going wrong with it.

If liver pain persists, check out other possible problems. The liver cleans up the mess from infected organs, drinking too much alcohol, smoking, over eating, and breathing our toxic environment.  We need to pay attention to them.

Love you liver.  Maintain it.  Detox every few months.  There’s never been a need like there is today to help out our livers. When you feel liver pain, address it even if blood tests don’t show liver damage.  By the time the tests show damage it is almost too late.

With over 500 other functions of the body depending on the liver, it is vitally important to keep it working properly and washed clean with clean pure water, not bottled, not treated, but clean pure water with the trace minerals back into it.

Don’t ignore liver pain.  Remember, there can be many reasons for it, but regardless of the reason, liver pain needs to be addressed.

Have you heard of Syndrome X ? It is all the buzz word in Japan right now.

Syndrome X is another name for Insulin Resistance. A BIG reason we are all so fat. And the reason for a Fatty Liver.

Insulin Resistance is the biggest contributing factor of obesity. Abdominal fat is the tattle-tale sign of Insulin Resistance. How do you look? You may need some help, but diabetes and weight gain can be managed. Ultimately, promoting healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, especially in children, will most entirely prevent NAFLD (fatty liver disease) and Type 2 diabetes.

Fatty Liver in itself is nothing to worry about and will disappear with loss of weight. The best way to test is through a simple blood test to see if liver enzymes return to normal after weight loss. If they do, you can be pretty well sure NAFLD (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease) was the problem. But to be completely sure, only a

only a liver biopsy can tell, which is expensive and intrusive, and generally not worth the risks.

When Fatty Liver is left untreated, it develops into steatohepatitis, a condition where not only fat is accumulated in the liver, but there is inflammation (hepatitis) and liver cell die (necrosis) and scarring (fibrosis) occur. Fibrosis of the liver can then progress to cirrhosis of the liver, which is the last stage of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

One of the best ways to protect against insulin resistance is to maintain a healthy liver in the first place. Bile that is produced in the liver is what metabolizes fat cells. If the liver is functioning properly, and is not toxic and overworked, it will perform its weight management function efficiently and you wont have to work so hard to keep the lbs off.

Artichoke and Sarsaparilla are a great combination for liver health.

Have A Wonderful Day! Give my best to your Liver.

Very.  In the article by Medical Author, Dennis Lee, MD and Medical Editor, Jay W. Marks, MD, Body Fat, the Silent Killer, they report that:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is currently the most common liver disease in the US and worldwide.
  • All stages of Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease are now believed to be due to insulin resistance, a condition closely associated with obesity.
  • As a matter of fact, tests show in people with liver problems, the greater a person’s BMI (Body Mass Index), the greater the liver damage.
  • It is now widely accepted that all stages of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Diseases (NAFLD) are due to insulin resistance, a condition closely associated with obesity. 

One of our greatest concerns in this country is obesity in children. And wouldn’t you know it, so is childhood NAFLD (Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease).  

When Fatty Liver is left untreated, it develops into steatohepatitis, a condition where not only fat is accumulated in the liver, but there is inflammation (hepatitis) and liver cell die (necrosis) and scarring (fibrosis) occur. Fibrosis of the liver can then progress to cirrhosis of the liver, which is the last stage of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
