Cirrhosis is the advanced scarring of liver tissue. When the liver is injured, it will try repair itself, but this can lead to scarring (a.k.a. fibrosis). Advanced levels of scarring is cirrhosis. Excess drinking is a common cause of liver cirrhosis, but it isn't the only cause. A condition known as Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), actually the most common cause of liver disease in the U.S., can also lead to the disease. People who are overweight are at risk for NAFLD, so maintaining healthy weight is one way to prevent cirrhosis. Avoiding excess alcohol consumption is another. Finally, eating plenty of green leafy vegetables can protect the liver from damage.

Key Takeaways:

  • One disease that is scary because of its implications is cirrhosis of the liver and it is usually associated with drinking too much alcohol.
  • Some of the factors that can lead to short-term and long-term liver damage include excessive drinking, risky sexual behavior, and injuries like vehicle crashes.
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is also a factor in liver cirrhosis and it is estimated that a hundred million Americans have NAFLD.

"Each time that the liver is injured — whether by disease, excessive alcohol consumption, or fat cells that become toxins — it will try to repair itself."

Cirrhosis and liver cancer are common diseases that can be easily prevented. There are many ways to reduce the chance of developing these diseases over the course of a lifetime, such as moderate physical activity. Resistance training in particular can help to alleviate symptoms and reduce the likelihood of developing these diseases because it can lower fat levels. Exercise can also lower cholesterol and help manage weight. To sum, healthy lifestyle choices and changes can reduce the risk of cancer associated with the liver and cirrhosis, which will ultimately lead to a positive and healthy life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is estimated to affect about thirty percent of Americans which translates to about a hundred million Americans.
  • Recent research from the University of Liverpool, UK, has shown that physical exercise, particularly resistance training, can reduce the risk of having liver cancer.
  • The liver is an important organ in the body that is involved in a lot of detoxification and it was shown that exercising was more beneficial for obese people.

"At the end of the study period, both liver fat and cholesterol levels were significantly lower."

Subject: Probiotics shown to protect against liver damage, study reveals





Fatty Liver Disease is becoming a real issue and may impact up to 1/4th of the United States population. Thankfully there appear to be means of combating this disease. Probiotics have already contributed in reducing acetaminophen-caused liver disease particularly with lowering of the oxidative stress. Positive gut health and bacteria is also important in maintaining a healthy immune system and can contribute to further protecting the body against Fatty Liver Disease. Eating the right foods, including fermented varieties, helps promote good gut health.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is affecting a lot of people in the US and the number is increasing. Experts put its number at 25 percent of the population.
  • When NAFLD is left untreated for a long time, it can develop into more serious problems such as liver inflammation, scarring, cirrhosis, liver failure, and then liver cancer.
  • Now it has been discovered that gut bacteria has a good effect on liver health and probiotics can be used to halt liver disease.

"The team found that the supplemented mice experienced significantly less liver damage than the control group."

Subject: CoQ10 can help to stop nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, studyreveals





Fatty liver disease is something that many people struggle with and fear in their lifetimes. Because it is nonalcoholic, it is difficult to rationalize having the disease as it is not intentionally done. Many professionals have attempted to lessen the ability to get the disease, and there is a medication that helps to put a stop to the disease. The medicine is called CoQ10 and it is very effective at halting inflammation in and around the liver.

Key Takeaways:

  • One powerful antioxidant that the body produces naturally is CoQ10 and the problem is that it gets depeleted thereby contributing to liver disease.
  • CoQ10 has been shown to reverse the effects of nonalchoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which is due to the accumulation of fats in the liver.
  • Nonalcholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a big problem in America because 30 percent of adult Americans have it and they have no idea it’s happening to them.

"Those receiving the CoQ10 supplement showed better markers overall after the study period was completed as compared with the placebo group."

As holistic medicines and natural remedies continue to be looked for, especially as more data and evidence shows the immense benefits that many of these can have for an individual, one natural cure that has been looked into is that of milk thistle. Specifically so, milk thistle has been found to be significantly beneficial when it comes to helping with the problems of liver disease, and can be beneficial for those who want to have better control of blood sugar levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Milk thistle is thorny and scrubby in appearance and is considered a weed by many yet it has a whole lot of benefits for individuals.
  • Milk thistle with the botanical name of Silybum marianum has been revered by traditional healers and herbalists for years and used to treat liver problems and blood sugar imbalances.
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) which is the liver disease that is more common in the country is known to affect 45 percent of the population in western countries.

"By the way, you should know that metabolic syndrome – associated with excess consumption of sugars and fats, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle – is a leading cause of NAFLD."

DHA supports liver health in people who eat a poor diet

Recent research by Natural Health 365 indicates that docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may help mitigate the impact of a bad diet or excessive weight on your liver. This omega-3 fatty acid appears to help combat nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, a condition in which fat builds up in the liver and damages it over time. Since nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is a major precursor to cirrhosis and to the need for a transplant, this is a remarkably important benefit for the substantial population of obese adults and children.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega-3 supplements with DHA can prevent NASH, a condition where fat builds up in the liver which in turn causes health problems.
  • NASH serves as a precursor to the most serious liver conditions, including cancer and cirrhosis.
  • The omega-3 fatty acid known as DHA can be found naturally in salmon, sardines, and other oil-rich fish.

"An article on Natural Health 365 states that the omega-3 fatty acid can help mitigate the worst effects of liver damage, up to and including full-fledged liver disease."

Treat your fatty liver disease naturally with a traditional Chinese herbal powder

Did you know that an herbal medicine from China called Sinisan can be used in treatment for cadses of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease? Researchers in China studied mice by exposing them to stress until they developed the disease. Then they administered Sinisan to the rodents for nine weeks and saw the symptoms of stress in them diminish. It also showed an increase in body weight and the various levels that are associated with fatty liver disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • To test a Chinese herbal medicine, researchers induced a chronic state of stress in a rodent population.
  • Due to the induced chronic stress, the rodents developed oxidative stress and chronic inflammation of the liver of a non-alcoholic nature.
  • The stressed rodents were administered the medication, with the overall result that they were less stressed had better weight and reduced fatty liver.

"A traditional Chinese herbal medicine called Sinisan can help treat nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), according to a study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine."

Subject: Omega 3 Fatty Acid Found To Stop Liver Damage From Getting Worse





Oregon State University researchers have determined an Omega 3 fatty acid can stop the progression of liver damage in lab animals for specific type of liver disease known a nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH. The Omega 3 which produces this effect is docosahexaenoic acid or (DHA) a readily available dietary supplement. However, researchers caution this treatment will most generally be used clinically since the population rarely follows dietary recommendations on supplements. NASH is caused from consumption of the western diet high in sugar, cholesterol and fats and can lead to the development of liver cancer or cirrhosis.

Key Takeaways:

  • A study with lab rats show that a type of omega 3 fatty acid offers people, who are overweight, to avoid liver issues
  • NASH is a risk factor for cirrhosis and liver cancer.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids regulate pathways, including synthesis, oxidation, and breakdown of fats in the blood.

"Characterised by liver inflammation, oxidative stress and fibrosis, NASH is a substantial risk factor for cirrhosis and liver cancer."

Phytoestrogen - Plant Estrogen

Subject: Phytoestrogen - Plant Estrogen

Phytoestrogens mainly belong to a group of phenolic compounds known as flavonoids: the coumestans, prenylated and isoflavones are three of the most active in estrogenic effects. Phytoestrogens are not considered as nutrients because the lack of in the diet will not produce any characteristic deficiency syndromes nor do they participate in any essential biological function. Phytoestrogens are considered archi-estrogens (naturally occurring) and as dietary phytochemicals they are considered as safe and effective in its estrogenic activity.

Phytoestrogen content varies in different foods, and may vary significantly within the same group of foods due to the way these foods are grown such as soil content. Phytoestrogen when consumed as a treatment for menopause was well tolerated and caused no changes in liver enzymes, creatinine levels, body mass index, or blood pressure. Phytoestrogen is found in a wide variety of edible plants and generally display both estrogenic and anti-estrogenic properties.

Canadian researchers examined the content of nine common phytoestrogens foods in a Western diet, foods with the highest relative phytoestrogen content were nuts and oilseeds, followed by soy products, cereals and breads, legumes, meat products, and processed foods that may contain soy, vegetables, fruits, alcoholic, and nonalcoholic beverages. Researchers are also studying if phytoestrogens can prevent prostate cancer, preliminary results are promising. Researchers focused primarily on the compound isoflavones because of its greater abundance in soy plus it exhibit estrogenic properties in the same strength as the other phytoestrogens compounds..

Isoflavones are structurally similar to the estrogen in human body’s, and thus have been shown to possess both estrogenic and anti-estrogenic activity. Isoflavones may directly inhibit bone re-sorption and prevent the onset of osteoporosis. The weak estrogenic effects of isoflavones have been postulated as being protective against various forms of cancer as well. Being that isoflavones are chemically similar to estrogen, one can take isoflavones as an estrogenic replacement with little to no side effects.

Two other clinical trials suggest that over the short term, soy isoflavones may reduce lumbar spine bone loss in peri- and postmenopausal women. Red Clover contains all four estrogenic isoflavones: biochanin formonoetin daidzein Genistein. Much research has been performed on soy and red clover based phytoestrogens sources. We do not eat much red clover and so we will focus more on soy sources.

Soybeans contain large amounts of isoflavones or phytoestrogens such as genistein, daidzein, glycitein, and isoflavones. Soybeans display a biological effect when ingested by humans and animals. Soybean oil is the most commonly used vegetable oil in the United States and Europe. Soybean oil contains approximately 61 percent polyunsaturated fatty acids making it a healthy alternative to other oils currently available on the market for cooking.

Soybeans contain high levels of phytoestrogens and are the most widely used oil in the United States, and is sold as either pure soybean oil or as a main ingredient in vegetable oil. Most of the supplements on the natural foods market contain isoflavones derived from soybeans or red clover and some contain botanicals such as black cohosh.

Phytoestrogen flavonoids and lignan exhibit significant antioxidant activity which is great for those anti-aging minded individuals. The antioxidant activity in flavonoid and lignan helps support breast, heart and bone health. Antioxidants can reduce free radical damage in the body as well as reduce oxidative stress which causes aging. We all know that over time we age, phytoestrogens might help one age more gracefully.

Finally, phytoestrogens, sometimes called "natural estrogens", are a diverse group of naturally occurring non steroidal plant compounds that, because of their structural similarity with estradiol (estrogen), have the ability to cause estrogenic or/and anti-estrogenic effects in the body. Isoflavones are found in high concentration in soy bean and soy bean products changing ones diet to more soy based foods or taking a phytoestrogens supplement can help reduce estrogen related cancers and maybe even prostate cancer.

Nutritional Scorecard

Subject: Nutritional Scorecard

Nutritional Scorecard by Sylvia Whitefeather Energy Times, June 15, 2004

For over 50 years, the federal government has produced Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) as guidelines for vitamin and mineral intake. Then, in 1993, the Reference Daily Intakes (RDIs) superseded the RDAs. By applying this new designation, the government's guidelines are now supposed to represent the designated amounts that an average person should consume. With this in mind, and the fact that many experts think you should consume more than some of the RDIs, how does your nutritional scorecard add up? Answering a few nutritional questions can point you in the right direction.

Perfect Protein

Are you trying to lose weight? If you are, the latest thinking on weight loss opines that eating more protein may be the key to keeping your weight down. Two recent studies published in the Annals of Internal Medicine (5/18/04) found that people who ate a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet lost more weight and had better cholesterol levels than dieters who ate fewer fatty foods. Both studies found that a low-carb diet can improve your triglycerides (blood fats) and boost your HDL, or good, cholesterol.

Eating protein satisfies both tummies and taste buds. Researchers have found that the amount of protein eaten in a meal determines not only how much food you eat but also how satisfied you feel after eating (J Nutr 2004 Apr; 134(4):974S-9S). And when you feel satisfied after eating less food you improve your odds of losing weight.

We need about 50 grams of protein a day to support the body's functions. The best sources of protein are eggs, meat, milk, protein shakes and yogurt.

Classy Carbohydrates

Does your energy level go up and down during the day? To get off the energy rollercoaster, cut down on carbohydrates, and make sure the carbs you do eat are complex.

Carbohydrates have been getting some unflattering press lately. Yes, if you want to lose weight, you may want to go on a strictly low-carb diet. But for those not concerned with weight, carbohydrates are the principle source of energy for the body.

What's more, even if you do restrict carbohydrates, you should still eat a tiny bit of them. Without some carbs in the diet your body cannot regulate protein or fat metabolism. According to Michael and Mary Eades, MD, authors of The 30-Day Low-Carb Diet Solution (Wiley), "Carbohydrates control insulin and insulin controls your metabolic health."

So, make your carbohydrates count. Indulge in complex carbohydrates: whole grains, fruits and vegetables. In those foods, carbs are accompanied by fiber and larger amounts of vitamins and phytonutrients. Other reliable sources of complex carbohydrates are whole wheat bread, brown rice and oatmeal.

Fabulous Fiber

Are you concerned about your heart health? Fiber from beans, oats, legumes, nuts, rice bran, fruits and vegetables helps stabilize blood sugar and reduce cholesterol. Pectins, found in apples, pears, prunes and plums, are a particularly useful form of water-soluble fiber.

Insoluble fiber, in cereals, wheat bran and vegetables, reduces the risk of colon-related problems. In addition to adding fiber to the diet, dried beans and soybeans have been shown to lower cholesterol, improve vascular health and kidney functioning, preserve bone mineral density and reduce menopausal discomforts (AJCN 1999 Sept; 70(3 suppl):464S-74S). Fiber also promotes good bowel health and encourages the growth of beneficial intestinal flora.

You need 25 to 40 grams of fiber daily. If you have cut back on your carbohydrates, be sure to take a reliable fiber supplement.

Fantastic Fats

Do you have problems focusing on mentally challenging tasks? If so, you should eat more fish and get more of the omega-3 fatty acids that fish and flax contain. Higher levels of this type of fat have been linked to better concentration while performing demanding intellectual work (Lipids 2004 Feb; 39(2):117-23).

Fats add flavor to food, making meals taste better. Monounsaturated fats like plain olive oil and canola are liquid at room temperature and are suitable for use in cooking at high temperatures. Researchers have found that a diet high in monounsaturated fat has the ability to decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol (J Nutr 2001; 131:1758-63). Other fats, such as extra virgin olive oil and flaxseed oil, are best used in dishes that don't need cooking, such as salads.

Although the RDI for fat is less than 30% of the total calorie intake, some researchers believe that if you eat healthy fat, eating too much is not a concern. Omega-3 fats are available in supplement form.

Wonderful Water

Do you suffer from dry skin? You may not be drinking enough water. This precious liquid is used by every cell of our bodies and makes up 60% to 75% of our body weight. Water is important for kidney function. Researchers in Italy found that drinking adequate amounts of water can help prevent the formation of kidney stones (Urol Int 2004; 72 Suppl 1:29-33).

Your activity level, environment and diet influence how much water you need daily. Try to drink at least eight cups of fluid a day from noncaffeinated, nonalcoholic sources.

Voluptuous Vitamins

Do you exercise frequently? If you do, you need more antioxidant vitamins like natural vitamin E and vitamin C as well as a healthy supply of carotenoids. A study at the School of Applied Medical Sciences and Sports Studies, University of Ulster, found that exercisers need more antioxidants. Otherwise, their exertion may release an excess number of free radicals (caustic molecules) in their bodies and do damage to the heart arteries and other internal organs.

Vitamins, in general, are defined as micronutrients that are necessary for life. They are necessary for the production of energy, a healthy immune system and hundreds of other functions in the body.

Vitamins aren't the only substances that produce big benefits in small quantities. Phytonutrients are chemicals in plants that have health-promoting properties. These nutrients are getting more and more attention from researchers who are keeping score on our nutritional requirements.

Mineral Crunch

Do your meals contain plenty of calcium? If not, you may need supplements to keep your bones strong and help keep your weight down. One study, presented at the Experimental Biology 2003 meeting in San Diego, found that young women who consumed more calcium had better luck controlling their weight. In this research, it didn't take much calcium to make a difference in waistlines. Consuming just one more serving daily (a cup of milk or a thumb-sized piece of cheese, each of which contain about 300 mg of calcium) made, on average, about a two-pound difference.

In addition, many experts recommend multimineral supplements (along with multivitamins) to promote better health. A recent study of people with immune problems, for instance, found that those kinds of supplements seem to help boost the immune system (AT News 2004 Feb 27; 398:4-5).
