This Liver Disease Isn't Visible During Tests Until It’s Too Late But These 7 Signs Are!

The liver is a powerhouse of bodily activity. While the liver’s main job is to filter blood coming from the digestive tract, the liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. The liver also produces proteins necessary for blood clotting.

It is possible for fat globules to build up in the liver, leading to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Unchecked, this can lead to even bigger problems like fibrosis and ultimately cirrhosis. Fatty liver causes inflammation and other damage to the liver. Insulin level changes can also result from fatty liver. Fatty liver is often caused by obesity, but it can also be a result of other problems. Seven signs that you may be suffering from a fatty liver are: fatigue, unintentional weight loss, swelling of the body, pain in the abdomen, jaundice, increased bruising, and mental confusion. Fortunately, there are several natural remedies that can help with fat build-up in the liver.

Dandelion Root

Dandelion root will help cleanse the liver. It can also help with inflammation and cirrhosis of the liver. One of its greatest strengths is preventing and reversing cancers.


Turmeric will facilitate digestion and reduce inflammation. The active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin a potent antioxidant.

Weight loss

This one is obvious. If you have a fatty liver, you need to lose weight, modified fasts may be helpful here. If you take this route, you should also make sure you stay well hydrated. This will help cleanse toxins from the body.

Black Seed Oil

NAFLD can be treated with black seed oil. It can also treat a variety of other issues. Adding black seed oil to your diet is an incredible way to improve health. It has been used successfully for thousands of years and I use it to great effect in my practice frequently.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is essential to the body. Taking vitamin E not only helps fight inflammation in the liver, it can also help with several other important organs.


Resveratrol comes from red grapes. It is a very powerful antioxidant, so it soothes inflammation. Scientists have discovered that it extremely useful at fighting inflammation that is caused by NAFLD.


This berry has been used by the Chinese for centuries. The Chinese used them for a variety of ailments. Today, they are known as glucose stablizers, tumor supressors, and an antioxidant. These berries can also help heal the liver, reducing problems associated by NAFLD.

Xiao Yao Wan

Along with many other Chinese formulas have been used for thousands of years to soothe and harmonize the liver.

Natural supplements as well as dietary and lifestyle changes are the path of least resistance with respect to recovering from this and all other disorders. It is important to work with a naturopathic doctor or expert nutritionist in order to get a comprehensive plan and derive the proper dosages and dietary benefits to reverse this and any chronic disorder.
