Do's, Don'ts, and Alternative Treatments for your liver

Posted May 28 2010 12:00am
In my search for finding an alternative to the transplant and removal of Larry (Yes, I have grown quite attached to my lil liver) I have "googled" I have "binged" I have searched high and low, yet I have not seen anything that can CURE end-stage-liver-disease.... What I have found is TONS of information on how to stop or slow the progression of liver disease, and though they are life altering changes (such as strict diet and some exercise) your life is worth it, right? RIGHT!! Unfortunately, once your liver becomes as bad as Larry, and symptoms such as jaundice, encephalopathy, and ascites are present, there do not seem to be any other options (especially when Hep C is present... poor Larry) There is no magic cure for liver problems but first thing is first. Find out what is causing the damage. It could be something genetic (like Wilson's disease , PBC , or Hemochromatosis ) or it could be something environmental, toxins. It could be drugs, alcohol, Budd-Chiari (a blockage in the hepatic veins) Hepatitis or NASH ... the list of causes is long, but if it is found early, many people CAN stop or at least slow further damage to their livers and lead happy and healthy lives. But, and it's a BIG BUT, you will probably need to make some maaaaaaaaaaaaaaajor changes. I found the below Do's and Don't list on a Hep C site ( click here to view ), however, I wanted to share it because it is not only good advise for us Heppers, but for anyone who wants to take better care of their livers... heck, better care of themselves in general. Remember, (not to get all Eastern Medicine on you) but you really have to live in balance, mind and body!And just like anything else, you have to work at that!
