A natural liver cirrhosis diet is showing promising results in relieving the nausea, fatigue, jaundice and malaise of this debilitating disease.
The liver has an amazing ability to regenerate itself, even after liver disease hits. When provided with the right foods, herbs and nutrients, the liver can heal itself and give you back your health and life. Lets look at some of the most important foods in the liver cirrhosis diet.
The corner stone of an effective healing diet is an abundance of fresh salads, vegetables and fruit. These foods are rich in enzymes and antioxidants to help heal and regenerate a scarred liver. Juicing your fruits and vegetables can accelerate the healing process.
Secondly the addition of good quality protein foods like fish, free range chicken, legumes and raw nuts and seeds can boost your immune system and repair damaged liver cells. Although excess fats are to be avoided, the addition of the healthy omega 3 fats like those found in deep sea fish and flax seed oil can repair damaged cell membranes.
The use of healing herbs and nutrients in the liver cirrhosis diet can help repair a damaged liver. Popular herbs include milk thistle, artichoke and gotu kola. Essential nutrients include vitamin C, zinc, vitamin E and the B complex.
Lastly there are foods which need to be avoided on the liver cirrhosis diet. These include the more obvious liver-toxic foods like alcohol, coffee, preservatives, additives, trans fatty acids and highly processed foods. Too much refined carbohydrate like that found in sugar, breads, cereals, rice and pasta, can trigger inflammation and hinder healing. For this reason it is best to minimise their intake. Whole grains in small amounts are usually tolerated on the liver cirrhosis diet.
The specific foods, herbs and supplements and their dosages are discussed in detail in a comprehensive e-book called “The Liver Cirrhosis Solution”. This program will give you the tools to turn your life around. All the recommended foods, herbs and nutrients on the diet are affordable and readily available from your local grocery and health food stores.
