Fatty liver disease occurs when there is an increased accumulation of fatty lipids in the liver cells. Some fat is normal, but if the overall amount exceeds 5% then you may have this problem. Common liver disease comes from drinking too much alcohol. But there are other types, other causes, including the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
The liver is an incredibly important organ of digestion. But it is also an important organ that filters out toxins that you ingest, inhale or that are absorbed through the skin.
Very few people look after this important organ and don’t connect their diet or lifestyle to their deteriorating health.
The typical symptoms of a hangover has less to do with dehydration, although this is a factor, and more to do with a struggling liver. As the main filtering organ, your liver filters out all the toxins in the alcohol, to save until they can be safely dispensed with for excretion. Toxins tend to be stored in fat cells.
The liver also filters out toxins from your food and from medication. The more medication you take, or the longer term you take the medication, the bigger the problem.
Other sources of toxins can be from personal health products, from cleaning products and from furnishings.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease comes from a poor diet. The consumption of hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and other processed foods are the main culprits. Processed foods contain denatured food, food that your body does not recognise, so doesn’t know what to do with.
The results are that, at best they are excreted more or less harmlessly and at worst they hang up in parts of the body where they can cause mischief.
Other causes of fatty liver disease are a poor immune system. This goes hand in hand with a poor, non-nutritious diet. Your body cannot create a healthy immunity if it is not fed the right nutrients, or if it is fed toxins. But stress and poor living conditions can contribute too.
One of the best ways to both prevent and cure this debilitating disease is to eat a healthy diet, one that contains no toxins (which means little in the way of processed food) and lots of natural, fresh, unadultered food.
By focussing on building a strong immunity, all diseases can be prevented or cured.
If you already have this problem, then a change of diet is a priority. That may not resolve it altogether, although it will certainly improve your overall prognosis.
A holistic approach may be needed to treat your fatty liver disease completely, without causing further damage. Homeopathic treatment is so good at reversing imbalance, at restoring health to a struggling organ. It does this by restoring balance, by increasing your immunity, by working with your body, rather than by suppressing the symptoms.
