For the last couple of weeks, I have noticed an ammonia type odor coming from my husband. It is an odor I am familiar with when I take care of elderly people in a nursing home, but my husband is only 66 and in good health. He takes no meds, except naproxin for his knee that was repaired of a meniscus tear. He does take a good vitamin. He is a bit heavy but not obese. For years he has had liver tenderness when we lay together and my arm is on his liver area. Could this be the beginning of increased symptoms of the liver?
My GGT in liver blood tests were 400 u/l. After taking ALA and Milk Thistle, they have dropped to below 90 u/l in 6 months.
I had liver damage partly probably due eating the bad fats I guess and partly due to auto immune reaction and I noticed it due to pain in liver area and cat pee smelling urine. I have followed one month of 200 mgs selenium, milk thistle, vitamin E, Choline and added after 2 weeks ALA and pain is gone and urine smells normal.
It was especially the ALA that made the difference, only milk thistle and selenium were not enough. After I added the ALA, it took only two weeks to release most of the problems.
I continue this protocol for a couple of weeks to make the liver strong again and eat healthy.
ALA, Selenium, Milk Thistle
My husband was diagnosed with fatty liver; started routine of ALA, selenium, milk thistle 2 weeks now; also suffers from nausea, dry heaves. Any idea of a projected time for any improvement or is that just a futile wish on my part? Acites is horrible, 9 liters removed last time; the water pills are not working

Alpha Lipoic Acid, Selenium, Milk Thistle
Alpha Lipoic Acid, along with selenium and milk thistle are a very helpful treatment for liver problems includidng cirrhosis. Burt Berkson, M. D, Ph. D., of Las Cruces, New Mexico has been treating patient with it for decades and has written a book and several monographs on the subject. I was very ill from cirrhosis, had severe ascites, could not walk witihout a cane--and only then a few yards-- and told I had to have a liver transplant or I would be dead in a month or two.
I began taking these subtances orally (600 mg. ALA with breakfast, 300 with dinner, along with selenium and milk thistle) annd immediately began to improve. I then went to Dr. Berkson's clinic and took a course of I.V. Alpha Lipoic Acid from him. It's been two years later and I am still well and able to walk miles, excercise, work and lead a normal life. You can find Dr. Berkson's monographs on line. It saved my life.

I take a daily concoction of 1 tsp ACV, 4 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice, 12 ounces of water, and half of a squeezed lemon. It's part of an eating plan and it's said to help cleanse the liver. All I know about it after seven days is that I feel generally better. I am prone to UTI's so the cranberry is definitely helping, and I've lost 4 pounds in eight days. (Of course, I'm following a prescribed plan of eating all natural foods and eating every three hours). It's a bitter drink, but I'm still drinking it!

300 gms of aloe vera-washed n chopped
1/2 ltr of honey
4tbs of brandy
Beat all this well , and refrigerate if required. Have 1 tbs an hr before each meal. That would be 3 times per day, get the mix to room temp before ingesting it. This course is to be had for 10 days and then a 10 day gap should be taken. Ayurveda says that this mix is so strong that there is a tendency for it to do away with all the good bacteria in the colon as well. The 10 day gap is for the replenishment of this bacteria, which are an essential part of your gastrointestinal tract. Continue this as long as the problem persists. My mom's been using this for the last 7mths. She has stage4 breast cancer. She's been having it along with the graviola fruit whenever available and tablets whenever scarce. She also has soya milk and cod liver capsules in her diet.

Stage 4 cirrohsis of the Liver
Internal Body Cleanser,disenfectant & Rejuvenator
Water (Carbonated Spring, mineral) it has to be carbonated.
Pure Lemon Juice ( from lemons, a lemon squeeze, bottled 100% lemon juice)
If you are not a fan of the salty food this may take some getting use to.This elixer is a rejuvenator for the a sick,dying liver. Not for the healthy.
Mix sea salt into water in large glass, until it is salty to the taste but still drinkable add lemon juice until you taste salty lemon. Drink it slowly. First time you drink it, it will give you severe diarhea. Drink it slowly & have 2 to 3 glasses a day.
Warning: I took lots of slack from the family. The medical professionals won't like the idea either. I knew. I just knew after much research on cirrohsis, that a very sick liver will begin to recover slowly at first & then your blood tests will begin to come back with much better numbers in the various catagories they check for. This is not a quick fix but is meant to be done over a long period of time. You will see an improvement after about 8 weeks. In between drinking this eleixer make sure you drink plenty of water. Eat lots of vegetsbles, fruit & the leaner meats.Stay away from breads, tortillas & eat sweets in strict moderation especially at first.
You need to take care of yourself & make your health a priority.Something that has probably been missing from your life. I have to take monthly blood tests now 4 years after I was diagnosed with stage 4 cirrohisis. Say goodbeye to any alcohol addicition, if that's why you got this terrible disease.Your liver is sick, slow & lazy. This elixer will wake it up again.Your blood tests should begin to improve in their results within a few short months.. I went from being on the transplant list, to being moved to hepatology & now a family practitioner for monthly visits & blood tests. I have now had quite a few blood tests come back near normal except for slight anemia.I continue with lasix & spirolactone, also laculose although as time passes in less doses. I once thought myself fortunate to survive 2 years after my terminal diagnosis but now going on 5 yeras, I'm no longer consider myself terminal in any sense of the word. I do not have an expiration date any longer!

Benign Liver Cysts treatment (for intermittent pain when bending) :
About 6 or 7 years ago I would bend over to pick something up and get excruciating pain for about 30 seconds, sometimes or longer. I had medical tests done on me and they told me it was benign cysts on my liver.
The medical establishment did not offer me any treatment at that time. I started using castor oil packs daily for weeks at a time (usually around 4-6 weeks) across my liver area with a long heating pad for about 45 minutes. I find that when I bend the wrong way the pain is less frequent and the intensity is less also.
I have always used Castor Oil Packs to strengthen my liver and kidneys. The liver can grow itself back if you take the time to do it.
You get cold pressed castor oil, wool flannel, a heating pad and a piece of plastic - I use a garbage bag. There are sites online that will explain it in details.
I put the castor oil into a sealed container with the wool flannel and shake it up. You want the castor oil to e dripping from it slowly. I then put the container into the microwave for about 15 or 20 seconds - just to get it heated up. I then put a couple of towels onto my bed or couch and lay down on them. Then I take the wool flannel and put it on my stomach. If you are trying to heal the liver, put it a little bit more over your liver, if you are trying to heal the kidneys, put it over that area. Then I put the garbage bag onto th flannel and then the heating pad - all the way on high (or as high as you can handle). Leave it on for at least one hour and meditate on what you are trying to achieve. After you are finished, wipe your self off with a mixture of Baking soda and water,to get your skin back to the proper ph.
Do this for 4-5 days on and then leave off for the remaining days.
The is a good book calld Edgar Cayce and the Palma Christi. It tells of all the wonderful things that Castor Oil (the Palma Christi) does!

Hi, I'm finding some of your tips very helpful. Here's somthing I hope you can help me with. I have a 5 year old with Vitamin Deficiency in her liver. She's been tested for everything since she was 6 months old that's all they can find. She's on Rifampin for itching. I don't think it's working anymore. She and I now are up all night from her scratching. She misses alot of days from school. Her school clothes, sheets, panties and fingernails are bloody from her scratching. She cries in her sleep. This has been going on for the past 3 years. The doctors said there's nothing they can do. PLEASE HELP!!!!
