Liver Disease Causes, Symptoms + Natural Ways to Manage – Dr. Axe

If you’re experiencing symptoms such as heavy fatigue, digestive issues, or trouble concentrating, the culprit may be related to the development of liver disease. The liver is our largest internal organ, and it typically measures the size of a football. It has the key role of filtering our body of potentially harmful toxins, but having to engage in this process too frequently can result in various liver diseases. Some of these diseases include hepatitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.

Key Takeaways:

    • The largest organ in the human body is the liver and it performs a lot of function like food digestion, energy storage, and removing toxins from the body.
    • Many people are in need of a liver cleanse and these are people who do not eat a vegetable based diet, or limit their toxin and alcohol exposure.
    • When the fat in the liver makes up about 5 to ten percent of the weight of the liver in the body, then that person has fatty liver disease.

“One of the hardest-working organs in the body, the liver works tirelessly to detoxify our blood, to produce the bile needed to digest fat, to break down hormones, and to store essential vitamins and minerals, like iron.”

Foods that could make fatty liver disease worse include alcohol, high carbohydrate foods, processed foods and sugary drinks. Foods that might improve fatty liver disease include raw vegetables (even better if organic), ginger, sweet potato, dandelion root and milk thistle.
