Dear truth be told, I'm wondering of you have tried a dietary approach to your condition. I'm not a Dr but it is my understanding that carbohydrates such as grains, sugar, alcohol are hard on the liver and that it is possible to heal your liver with good fat: Eggs, calves liver, coconut oil, avocado, butter, olive oil, cod liver oil, etc. I know others have done apple/beet/carrot juice fasting with good results for liver support. Lecithin is another liver cure you can read about on here which is somewhat related to the fat cleanse.

There is also a section on this website devoted to treating a variety of viruses and I think you may find those options helpfull too. Some off the top of my head are colloidal or ionic silver, iodine, food grade h2o2, olive leaf, apple cider vinegar, aspirin, essiac tea, raw garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli peppers etc. - lots of virus busting liver supporting options if you troll around this website a bit.

My dads old drinking buddy swears he cured himself of hep c by quitting alcohol and drinking kambucha tea instead. Probiotics are also good if you have ever taken antibiotics, since so much of our immunity comes from the friendly gut bacteria (they make vitamins for us, fight off infection, digest our food etc). Good bacteria like healthy fats like those mentioned above while bad bacteria and yeasts like sugars. Apple cider vinegar and kambucha tea are both good to support a healthy digestive tract but there are many options for getting good bacteria from probiotic yogurt, kefir, kimchee, and saurkrout.

Are you taking a muli mineral and multivitamin? Do you get enough sunlight to make vitamin d. I know jaundice in babies responds very well to light treatment which means the liver needs vitamin d to regenerate. Other viral diseases tend to respond to sun treatment as well. Dr Mercola highly recommends getting enough sun to keep your immunity up.

Two other websites I find infinitely helpful are and I also like Dr Myhill's website for specific nutritional recommendations.

I'm wishing you well again soon and I hope some of this information proves useful.

I have a giant hemangioma in my liver. It is only being watched but has begun to push against other organs creating some problems. Is there a dietary means to clean that up?

Essential Oils cleaned out blocked liver:

I am grateful for this site and am hoping this will help someone. Applying an essential oil blend externally 3 times cleared my liver. (I DO NOT SELL THEM). After that I could actually take supplements without them making my face numb. Now I take huge doses of Niacin for my anxiety and life is becoming wonderful again.

A while back I was in really bad shape - for a year I couldn't take more than a quarter of the adult dose of a quality multivitamin (took a while to find one I could tolerate at all) or my face would go numb. Auto-immune diagnosis and major issues.

One day I tried an essential oil blend designed to help digestion - ingredients were Ginger, Peppermint, Tarragon, Fennel, Caraway, Coriander, and Anise essential oils. (called Digestzen). I rubbed 2 or 3 drops over my liver area 3 times in one day. The next day I had pain in ALL joints in my body - this took a week to clear. I also saw something that looked like chopped straw in my poop.

After a few months I got brave enough to try again - this time I applied only once 2 drops over my liver. I got a little pain in my liver this time.

A week later I tried again 2 drops applied over my liver and it was all good.

I read later that the straw stuff is called chaff and is crystallised stuff that literally blocks the tiny ducts up and was leaving the liver. My liver was literally blocked up. (So nothing was working very well)

Since then I have also started using Chinese bitters. I am now able to take supplements in orthomolecular doses without fear of tremors all night or numb face, etc.

Life if fabulous. Keep asking the universe/god for help and it will come - love to all and I hope this helps someone.

It sounds great to me. Hopping you are a serious human being acting in God's name and not be a charlatan.

NOTE: I had missed a important information.

All those oils from GINGER at to Anise, comes in a hole bottle, or we have to buy all individually and then, mixing them in a glass jar?

Please, let me know and were I can buy them too.

I have two Benign cysts, one is 1 cm and other, the first one had show in X-Ray is now 2cm.

I am so happy for you, because I know how bad you usually feel, I can not eat almost nothing every thing hurts me, even medicine do not cure me instead make me worst. My bally is always blowing I need digestive on the account remedies.

All my joins of my body hurts, since I was a child, I noted it after I had turned yellow like a Lemon even my eye I was only 6 years old. Not school took me in because teachers thought I was a hepatitis person.

Dr. said that I have a damaged liver but not contagious, it was a Jaundice infected liver by contaminated water of uncooked food. until my color finally clear a great deal but not complete I still look a Olive greenish.

Today, I am going to be 77 next June 07/17 and my health is getting worst I feeling the earth is moving, actually it is me only, and even felling down frequently by not reason at all. Every thing I eat is bad, gasses are my worst anemic and always are with me.

I am telling my history for those ones that might have the same problem and not ware that can be the liver too.

I never had drinking neither smoke, not eat hot food because I have had follow very carful since the Dr. had diagnosticade me with liver damaged, I can not grease, meat and many other foods, and I have had developed Asthma that is together with the liver, ready to make my live miserable.

Please return my email letting me know if all those remedies comes already mixed or I have o buy them individually and mixed those myself.

I hope it ill kill most of my problems, thanks to you and God that has had put you in many people lives to get cure or at least most better.

Thanks again and God bless your and yours too.

Does anybody know if using a heating pad over your liver when sleeping will raise liver enzyme levels? Thank you.

I discovered our whole body is circulatory, over 80,000 miles of blood vessels and the LIVER is loaded with them also and with it being a cleansing mechanism of the body, if it gets sick, toxic and unhealthy this causes a back-up into the body. 2010, when I almost lost my twin sister, I got blessed to hear about a 37 yr old with 80 yr old blood vessels and now he is 74 with blood vessels of a 12 yr old. You can bet his liver is clean. This is a Doctor and it is validated by Nobel prize and both the doctor and a heart institute use it on every single patient. My sister lives today with no more congestive heart failure and is without meds. Be blessed

Thanks for your half way information, the Dr. got better by justly being a Dr. or because he had used some medicine, how he was able to clean out his liver? You had left off the most important information. How did he get cure or cleanse, with any cleanse he has found in any pharmacy or natural medicine. Please tell us the complete story. Thanks

I found at a very young age that my liver has always been at risk; I found recently after many years of pain in lower back and being way under weight but severe swelling through out my whole body, was caused from mold, I was also surprised to find that 90% of the USA has chances of mold build up because of the continuous dampness year round causes this mold, the worse case scenario is that doctors nation wide are treating it as an infection which adds insult to injury because most antibiotics are made from mold.

Recently I almost had a heart attack because the antibiotic ciproflaxine made my chest feel like it had been crushed. I think from now on God willing I plan on not seeing a doctor unless absolutely needed. I later found that I had neck surgery that was not needed. How sad a world we live in.

I seriously feel that it's herbs that are holding me together and trusting totally in my own instincts and this website. Thank you Ted and other's that have shared their much needed input, it's the glue that holds us all together.

God bless us all, Peace

Usa, I agree with you on the environment we live in can be toxic to us. I proved this, when I was sent to Colombia, South America with the Red Cross for 7 months. I live in NY and had asthma that worsened with 9/11. I was allergic to everything, so many foods and always felt sick and not really strong, especially when I hit 39. Within my first month in Colombia, I no longer had to use my asthma inhalers, or was allergic to so many things. I was eating fruits off trees all day long and lost over 25 lbs. I was so happy and healthy. Upon my return to NY, I slowly deteriorated and within 4 months I had my first asthma attack again. I thought I had been cured, so much that I wasn't even carrying an inhaler and had to rush to the e.r. I have since then considered getting my degree and since I am bilingual moving down to South America and living life, not just surviving like I feel we do here in the United States, unfortunately. This is a great country, and I have served it, but it is not serving me. Norma

I used to have asthma really bad and had to use a inhaler quite a few times a day. When I started perimenopause I had an allergic reaction to Chinese food and ended up in the hospital getting a breathing treatment and put on steroids. Later I found out I was allergic to MSG. Well, as you know MSG is in so many foods but I was determined to not eat it any longer so I wouldn't end up in the hospital again. After 3 months, I wasn't having attacks as often. After 1 year I didn't need an inhaler unless I had a respitory infection. I had less sinus infections. It has been 5 years now. I can't tell you how wonderful it feels not to have to use an inhaler or feel like you can't breathe. I wish they would take MSG out of food as I believe this is why so many children have asthma now. It's a shame the FDA allows this.

MSG is highly toxic, and apparently the toxicity level increases by A LOT if you reheat leftovers with MSG in it. It all begins with us requesting MSG chemical free food and fluoride free water

Hello, I was just wondering if it's good or bad to swallow stones when eating fruits, ie, grapes, watermelon...I thought it is good as normally stones contain minerals and vitamins, but is it ok for the liver. I am not talking about juicing or blending whole fruits, but swallowing watermelon seeds while eating pieces of fruit.

Thank you!

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN,,,,,,,,,,, as all know I's kinda wild and strange. Anyways, me and my Tractor Driver are starting our annual liver and gall bladder flush this week and want to invite you to come along with us. The procedure is from Dr. Hulda Clark's book as the following URL explains.

She also recommends that you drink apple juice daily for a week prior to the actual flush procedure. We will be drinking a glass of apple juice before every meal preceding our start on Friday night. The procedure is done Friday night and all is completed Saturday mid-morning. There is very little cost, a few lemons, a little epsom salt and a little olive oil. You can follow Dr. Clark's protocol but I will be posting all week and walk you through what takes place on Friday night and Saturday morning.

You will be amazed as to what your flashlight shows you in the toilet on Saturday morning. We have done this flush for about the last 10 years so we no longer get stones, we just get what is called chaff. If this is your first Rodeo then you will likely get stones of every color in the rainbow. You liver will thank you for getting rid of lots of toxins as you should feel much better.

I'm serious about this. This is your chance to clean out your liver with the whole world available to help you. I will post daily on things that may ease any reservations. In Dr Clark's book, she says she gets credit for this flush, but it has been done for thousands of years.

YEP, It's me again. The professional folks have spooked me, because they don't want you to think for yourself. They say you can't do this by yourself. You must have professional guidance..... $, $, $. BS, BS, BS.

After reading what the sites say, I'm going to give you those caveats and you will have to make the decision as what is good for you. If you do the procedure, then don't fuss at me. I ain't got no money nohow.

One lady makes it clear that you must go to her for guidance. Instead, I'll give you what cure zone says and the decision is yours. Read the the possible problems and read the benefits. We are both old and we opt for the benefits. The decision is yours.

Not trying to stir up a controversy, but don't know your health situation. We old, but we've done this at least 10 times.

Here is what you might see in the toilet.

Know this is gross, but this crap is in your liver and you need to understand that. What we get now get is the chaff you see in the last pictures.

Research this flush yourself and I hope you will join us. Our governments can't get along, but maybe we can.

Dear Robert Henry,

Just last night I was in bed thinking about how much better I feel than a year ago. A year ago no foods agreed with me and I had heartburn and chest pain that often woke me in the night.

It took me four flushes over the course of a couple of months to get the largest stones out. The proof is in the pudding. I haven't had the chronic heartburn or chest pain since. Even a year later I marvel that it actually worked. No surgery. No organs removed. Yay!

Reading stories here at EC finally gave me the courage to do it. It was that or surgery.

Happy cleansing!

MAMA,,,,,,,, got a few stories to tell you. What folks don't know is that in these stones are full of toxins big time as we have learned from a lady in our little country church experienced this past year.

She had a kidney stone and went to a Cleveland, Tn hospital to get it crushed and passed. They crushed it alright and it was full of E-coli, went through out her body and gave her sepsis. That's a $3 consultant word for blood poison. She was unconscious for 8 days and on life support. They took her off life support and she became conscious 3 days later. She was totally black. So far the doctors have cut off her left arm at the elbow, cut off her left leg at the knee and have cut off the toes on her right foot.

She only survived because we were praying for her night and day . You cannot believe her attitude. She is just grateful to be alive. She has been back to church twice and it thrills us just to see her. If folks don't think there is a God, then I weep for them.

I told this story to my dentist and he related that his son's mother in law is still in the hospital after a simple gall bladder incision went array. The doctors had to operate on her a third time and she went into sepsis and is still in IR.

It is now apparent that toxins are in your fat, and stones and any other place they can hide. They hide in your kidney stones, they hide in you liver and gall stones. Our medical folks are just smart enough to get us to the Holy Land before our time. Crush stones full of toxins and send that garbage through out your body. Are you SHEETING ME? They spent 28 years of schooling and did not know this? You kidding me, right?

Reminds me of going to the Institute of Paper Industry in Wisconsin back in the '70's and learned that the professors were 20 years behind the industry. They brought us up on summer seminars to learn from us. They did not know sheet. I don't think our medical doctors do either. They only know what the mini skirted Pharma Reps tell them.

Excuse my rant. Just more reasons that folks need to flush their liver and get rid of the stones full of toxins.

HI U GOOD PEOPLE,,,,,,, if you are doing the flush, I hope you are drinking your apple juice. It's not mandatory, but helps. Also like Jessie, I did not lie, I just misspoke. Forgot that Sat. we are leaving for Grayton Beach, Fla. so we will do the actual flush on Thursday night. Suggest you stay with Fri. night going into the weekend.

There are additional things that will assist you:

Take about 4 to 8 capsules of 500 mg L-Ornithine for sleep and a heating pad on your left side to encourage your liver to flush. Have a bright flashlight so you can observe the toilet stones the next morning. We have learned to have all our solutions in jars and packed in an ice chest next to our bed. They go down better cold. Dr Clark says to use pink grapefruit, but we have used lemons, either works.

Well, if you are not doing the flush with us, then at least you're thinking about doing preventive things like Mama does.

HI U OLE PATOOTS,,,,,,,,,,, tonight we do our liver flush ; have shut off all supplements, eating a mild and late breakfast, drinking lots of apple juice and water. Have all the toddies mixed and in the frig. and heating pads are on the bed. Hope some of you are trying this procedure for the first time. The Russian PhD says in his book that he and his Retreat followers spent a week detoxing and conclude with the liver flush. He considers this to be one of the best things to do for good health. We have two of his books. His mother was an MD and was disappointed that he studied Physiology, not medicine. His reponse was that he wanted to help people stay healthy and not just treat their symptoms.

I dropped the olive oil part since the green of the olive oil could be mistaken for stones. I started the Atkins cholesterol protocol, TMG, vitamin E, a bunch of supplements. That alone flushed the smaller stones. I found though that for me they returned very quickly and I used plain Apple Cider Vinegar to keep them flushed. Later I found Stephanie Seneff discussing sulfur and cholesterol sulfate and its proper function in the body, added MSM to my protocol, resolved stones and diarrhea as long as I keep on the MSM and TMG. I have helped two people flush their stones the way since then. One was my husband who went on a fast and felt like he was having a heart attack. He grew new respect for my pain all those years.

About the 13 year old with jaundice;

Normally jaundice associated with Liver problems; Google "jaundice causes" and you'll see a number of liver associated issues. But for a 13 year old, one of the viruses that cause Hepatitis (A, B, C and D).

Earth Clinic has a lot on Hep. "Oscar" writes about the benefits of BHT and much is on the "Ailments" section under Hepatitis or the Remedies section under BHT.

I'm big on Colloidal Silver and if this were me, if I had jaundice, I'd immediately take a quarter glass of CS three times daily to kill the virus....assuming it is a virus.

Replied by Rsw
Uniontown, Oh

When I had severe Hep A, I was offered Tylenol at the ER, and then many times by nurses after hospitalization. Fortunately, I had heard Dr. Rosenberg tell how Tylenol, which was advised to be given to children with fevers instead of aspirin in the 80's, was causing liver failure. My own pediatric doctors told me the link between Reyes Syndrome and aspirin was not proven, so I infrequently gave my children baby aspirin on the rare occasions when it seemed needed. I believe refusing to take any Tylenol in the hospital may be one of the reasons I survived.

Replied by Timh

Rsw: Prior to receiving 2 units of blood transfusion, the nurse recommended Tylenol (to help prevent reaction) but I had read of toxicity issues so I mentioned the likely possibility of sickened liver and ask for half a tab. Some time ago I tried Ibuprofen but it caused venous stress so I dropped it. For inflammation I currently take Celadrin and Flax Oil.

Thanks, Timh,

This is the first time I have heard about Celadrin, but I looked it up and it looks good! Do you take the capsules or the topical cream? I have Flax Oil and I take curcumin that has enhanced absorption, although I don't notice much difference with it. Supposedly a good brand but doesn't seem to work for me.

Hope you are doing well. Your recent posts seem to be indicating some improvement. Yeah! Thanks so much for the pointing out the Celadrin. I will put it on my list!

Replied by Timh

Rsw: Your concern is very much appreciated and of course makes me hope all is good w/ you. I caught myself being overoptimistic in one of my recent post as my improvements seem to always get overshadowed by the progressive nature of my illness as I know that death is near... until Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc (shoutout "thanks a million Dave") posted info about Calcium 2 AEP (of which I somehow have never heard of) so I started 4 caps daily on Monday w/ immediate and cumulative results as of today. The benefits info has proved 100% correct in my toxic condition. So my hope for sufficient recovery is gaining.

I take 1 350mg Celadrin softgel daily w/ noticeable results. I also take Turmeric when I have it in stock. Eating Pineapple is also good anti-inflammatory.

Liver Cleanse

For clearing liver stones, is it enough to do coconut oil with lemons everyday? If not, and I do the olive oil with citrus cleanse, are there any substitutes for the apple and cranberry juice, as I have acid problems. Finally, a general diet question. Is it okay to take flax oil, whey drink and mushrooms, or will these adversely affect my PH?

Liver Cyst Remedies  

Posted by Marisa (Ny) on 08/13/2014

I was recently having upper abdominal pain and had a lot of testing done. The only thing found was a 1.5 inch liver cyst in the exact spot where I was having pain and bloating. The doctor told me "these don't cause symptoms" however with what I have been reading I know it is not true. Surgery on the liver is not very safe and I am desperate for a remedy.

Replied by Timh

@Marisa: It would be nice to know exactly what type cyst you have. In the meantime, I would recommend applying a strong magnet directly to the area for about 30 min daily fallowed by a Don Croft Zapper for 30 min directly over the area. Fallow this w/ garlic oil soft-gels in the am session and Oregano Oil soft-gels in the pm session. These remedies will reduce the infection and inflammation and eventually kill the cyst; may take several months treatment.

Joy, I replied to you about the gelatin capsules... Sounds to me like you have sensitivities to the binders and fillers in your meds. I am extremely sensitive to manufactured glutamic acid (MSG). I cannot ingest gelatin capsules. I cannot eat yogurt. I had to get the magnesium powder because the magnesium citrate caused PVC (premature venrticular contractions) that felt, to me, like heart flutters. After all my tests that was the diagnosis I was given. I then found out about the "citrate". It is processed from corn because it is cheaper than from citrus fruit. The FDA is not protecting us and I said earlier on this site that they should be renamed the Fool and Deceive Agency. I think you should stop taking all the processed things you are taking. Especially yogurt. The dairy cows are being fed GMO grains and grasses. As I mentioned, it has taken me over twenty years of piecemeal learning and it is difficult to "spit out" in a few sentences how I know what I've learned.

All of our fruits vegetables have been engineered to last longer. Corn and Soy are two of the deadliest ingredients in our food supply and they are in practically everything. They are being fed to critters we eat, get milk and eggs from and are difficult to digest. Nothing is safe. Moderation is essential.

Replied by Kathy

I have to apologize for being so piecemeal but that is the nature of someone who has had two traumatic brain injuries... Comatose after one. From my experience, you seem to be ingesting things that are in conflict with each other. I don't feel you could be "eating healthy" if you keep having problems. I have had to do a little research to use food as my medicine. This will have to be continued if you are REALLY interested... There is much information I could share but it will be piecemeal and I want to be thorough when I give it. It is important to stop eating raw fruits and vegetables because they are not digested well. They must be cooked to be easier to digest. What I've learned is contrary to what has been acceptable as "healthier eating". Canned and frozen are better because they are picked at their peak and blanched.

Hello- I wonder if you have looked at any emotional triggers to this issue? We are mind body and spirit and I feel at the place in which we need to look at any bodily issues from that stand point. Just a thought to help you rule out. But mind has a lot to do with health. So liver is the seat of anger. Is there any unprocessed anger that could be bringing these back up? I want to say how brave you are. And to keep going. You are your own best resource and the more you get in tune with all of you, the better you'll be. Hang in there.

I had just posted my "last post" to Joy after reading what I posted because I think I was more confusing than helpful. I gave more explanation but lost my connection and lost what I had typed. I think I should have told her she sounded like she was sensitive to hidden sources of MSG instead of the binders and fillers in supplements (they can be made from genetically modified plants and are a hidden source). Those of us who recognize our sensitivity refer to "MSG" as any processed free glutamic acid. It is not Monosodium Glutamate but it does the same damage. It is in many different foods under many different names and everyone will react differently and it can be carcinogenic. I forget the rest of what I had said.

Hindsight is 20/20 and I learned my "cysts" wherever they were came from too many carbohydrates. All of our dairy (whether milk, cheese or butter) is from cows being fed genetically modified grains and/or grasses. I thought I was getting unadulterated whole milk in glass bottles from free-range, grass fed dairy cows. I not only had a hard time keeping my weight down but I kept getting more "cyst-like" blemishes. I knew they previously came from too many carbs but I was limiting my carb intake.

I called the dairy and asked if they were feeding their cows corn. They reluctantly replied "yes, along with the leaves". Knowing the milk in glass bottles is safer I started getting 2% milk and my "cysts" reduced in size. I still eat butter but I get it without salt and use sea salt. I limit my cheese to 1/2-1oz. at a time. I don't know if you are familiar with the low carb diet but meat, eggs, cheese and butter are not supposed to have any carbs. This can't be true anymore because of what they are being fed but who has the money to do any testing? I don't believe there are any reliable labs anyway.

Boy, I got way off here... I don't know what you read or what I said that got your interest. I'm not real familiar with how postings work here but I'm going to try to "flag" this so I know when you reply. It's not good for me to sit here long and sometimes it upsets my husband.

Kathy, Not to worry, my brain has it's own farting issues. That's why I'm using so much coconut oil. Some days I have a special case of STUPID. I think you said food unprocessed and supplements were bad for me and it is, ... But I still have to eat some if I want to stay alive. We are all being poisoned by the greed, so we have to pick and choose from this poison or that one. Which is the least toxic?

We are all doing our best at being human, trying to find answers for our issues and help our fellow man. I appreciate you trying to be of help to me.... Let Your JOY be Full.

PHEW, took me a long time to find this post.

I am in the process, I hope, of correcting a diagnosis of IBS and have to spend frequent time in the bathroom. Having had a breech vaginal delivery makes things difficult. I'm sure I'm a candidate for a colostomy but I do not want to live the rest of my life like that.

It's hard to know what "eating healthy" is. What is good for one may not be good for someone else. I'll just try to explain my thought processes of what I am doing and why. I could very well be wrong but I'm gonna try. I just started using coconut oil so I only use a sliver (about 1/2 tsp. )with my butter. This part was added after I started this... I only use sea salt with turmeric and ginger. I just read that cayenne pepper stops bleeding so I've starting using some of that.

I have damaged myself in a way that I need to replace the lining of my colon. There is about a two inch section that is not there. (actually that part is the rectum) The nerve cells are dead and I read that garlic helps regenerate the lining. I try to eat green beans (cooked well) and either carrots or cauliflower, chewing them up with a garlic clove.

Carrots are good for Vit. A, necessary for tissue repair. Cauliflower contains Vit. K needed for blood clotting and the green beans are a good source of magnesium that binds with protein before being absorbed in the intestines. It also offers some protection against MSG.

I then have a couple medium eggs with onions. Sometimes I have an ounch of cheese with them or I'll have them on a small red potato with the skin, a sliver of butter (without salt) and a sliver of CO. I also use the sea salt with turmeric and ginger.

A long time ago I read that zits, "clogged pores" occur because of eating too many carbs and not enough Vit. A. Looking back, I had a hard time with my complexion at the same time I had reoccurring cysts on my ovaries and I had one behind my ear.

I hope this helps you a little. You did not reply so I don't know what else to tell you. Please be aware that I have got to finish a course before the twenty-ninth and I do not maintain an internet connection. It's taking me a long time because I cannot sit here long. I gave an explanation of what happened but because it has nothing to do with what EC is for, I don't think it would be allowed. I wish I could email what I had typed. I saved it in case. ~Kathy

Hi Kathy from Happyville, You sound like you eat a healthy diet and have overcome a lot of obstacles. I added a full spectrum multi mineral lately to my intake and that has been helping. I also use two magnesium citrate a day and hope to add some potassium citrate soon. Maybe get some zip in my doo dah!

I use 3-7 tsp. A day of coconut oil plus coconut flakes without sweetener. I love the improvements in my health. Coconut oil is the only oil that doesn't tax the liver. My skin is full of circulation and healthy color and plumped out, less wrinkles, dark circles, I have had since childhood, are lessening.

I started using the oil for the first time in Nov. or Dec. of 2012, after reading a book on Alzheimers.

I bought a coconut oil book recently and there is a candida flush diet in the book (3-7 days to complete it). I have to get some lime and try to adjust to it before going on the cleanse... Maybe in May. I had a chronic belly ache till I was 40 but rarely get one if I'm careful. Too much... too soon makes me lose ground in my recovery.

It says in the book that the coconut meat and oil heal the colon also, you said you have IBS---it polishes , cleans, helps restore the tone and helps ph and strengthens, nourishes the tissue from mouth to rectum.

I have lifelong candida issues (from my mother) and that affects the way your body processes food. You can eat and have little benefit. I've been on the health search for over 30 yrs. and overcame a lot of issues but age brings new battles to overcome.

Do you have cysts on the liver ? I have no other cysts. I plan to overcome them, maybe dandelion tea , our yard is full of the stuff.

It's almost SPRING and a black bunny has made it through the winter out there eating dandelion greens. He showed up one day and stayed on.

Hi De, I don't know if Joy is still available. I've tried to contact her through EC CS but never received a reply. The last she posted about her painful prolapse issue, I was dealing with mine. She posted about using Witch Hazel to "pull her bladder back up" or something similar and I was discovering that the "bladder prolapse" is actually stool accumulating and pushing against the vaginal wall. As soon as I could find her post about the problem, I tried to alert her to the fact that the "prolapse" was not her bladder. After I posted my findings, someone else posted in agreement with me.

It was Deidre that alerted me to possible toxic bowel. It was still the damaging effects of the gelatin capsules that culminated and contributed to my prolapse.

Liver Damage Treatment  

Posted by Tracy (Naperville , Illinois. ) on 09/10/2013

I delivered a baby in seventh month. After one month my gall bladder was removed. And for the past three months I am suffering from liver damage. I had yellow eyes for a month but I thought it is because of lack of sun. Earlier I never took any allopathy medicines. One fine day I was hospitalized with liver damage and they said I am under nourished and put all kinds of fluids with Iv. My body was totally swollen with big stomach and elephant like legs. I had to go for paracentesis two times so far. Now the swelling of legs is totally came down but my stomach is still huge. They also suggested liver transplant with 50% chances. I am 29 yrs and I hv 6 yrs old son, and two daughters 4 and half and the small one is 8 months. Can some body help me? Can somebody tell me can I drain my stomach with home remedies? Can repair my liver with home remedies? I am vivid reader of EC and I always tell my friends to look for home remedies on EC. I want to be healthy for my kids. I do home schooling and natural food freak

Dandelion is beneficial to the liver. If you eat the leaves is will help you to get read of extra water in your tissues. Search the web for more info on Dandelion and other plants that support the liver.

You have to consider Swedish bitter internally and also externally as a compress on the liver -it may fix the jaundice. It is possible that after the bladder surgery some of the bile ducts got blocked (inflammation or bad surgery)

@Tracy: Here is a link that provides lots of info as well as products specifically helpful for liver conditions. Also, Swanson Foods has a formula "Milk Thistle Combination" that I personally recommend in your condition as it will help rebuild the liver as well as strengthen the kidneys and promote diuresis. Also on the must list is Cooked or Raw Liver. Some find cooked liver difficult to eat, but I have found the cooked chicken liver at KFC (Cournel's Recipe) to be more in the direction of delicious. Raw Liver Glandular or Liquid Liver Extract is a supplement taken by mouth and will greatly increase liver cell regeneration when used in combination with the herbal formula of your choice.

Milk Thistle is known to help in liver damage. I am not sure if it could be very effective in your situation but it's worth a try. Let your Doctor be aware if you want to try it.

Hi, I am new to this site and while it has a wealth of information I think I am in need of some advice and guidance. I am a cancer survivor but only learned about alternative treatments after the radical mastectomy and chemo but at least now if it comes back I know I won't go that route. The advice I need is for a good friend that has liver disease. He has no insurance and not much money and the doctors have given him 6 months. He has done some chemo (I don't know why, it's not cancer) but it's been several months. He does not have hepititis. I firmly believe that there is still hope for him but am a little overwhelmed with so much information. For instance, I don't think he should do a strong detox for fear of overloading his already damaged liver so what would be a safe, slow detox for him? What all treatments here should I try? A few? All of them together? I certainly don't want to make the poor man worse! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Depending on what kind of liver disease your friend has, there are two treatments that have given success. Dr. Burt Berkson (google him for more information) has used Alpha Lipoic Acid and low dose naltrexone to regenerate and heal liver disease. Oscar, on this site under Hep C & B and other lipid coated viral diseases, has a BHT program that has worked for many, including himself. These therapies are NOT used together. The BHT works best by itself or with a few vitamins or supplements. (See what Oscar recommends, but I think he mainly stresses BHT by itself, at least in the morning with water only. ). The ALA and LDN work as a separate therapy, not in conjunction with the BHT. Best wishes.

Thanks so much! That was what I needed to know! I decided to do the Milk Thistle, Alpha lipoic acid and selinum combo. He said the damage is from heavy metals mostly and probably fatty liver as well (I suspect). I am having him drink 1Tbls baking soda, 2 Tbls apple cider vinager in 8 oz. of good water each morning. I want him to take some cold pressed, organic flax seed oil and organic virgin coconut oil but I don't know the proper amounts for those yet. I am having him use the coconut oil as his only cooking oil tho. My health food store has PH water so I got 4 gallons to start and also Acqua Panna spring water because they sell it in glass bottles. Starting out having him take 500 mg Milk thistle (the one I bought also has liver powder) with breakfast and lunch and will build up to 900 mg per dose. Also 300mg Alpha lipoic acid 2x a day and Selinium 200 MICRO grams 2x a day. There seems to be some confusion as to the correct amout of Selinium to give, depending on which post you read. Some say micro grams and some say milli grams so I figured starting with the lowest dose would be the safest route. I got him a good multi vitamin and extra C and B complex. He is to eat fresh organic vegitables, as much raw as possible. Good water, dandilion root tea and green tea. No processed foods, no canned foods, no sugar of any kind so fruit extracts only. Not much meat and it must be drug free and GMO free. After a few weeks if he seems like he is able I wanted to try the beet root protocal altho it scares me a little because I'm afraid it might tax his liver too much so we will see. Well this is the plan thus far. If you notice something we should be doing but aren't please let me know. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks again!

Hi, you should google for cannabis oil. It treats almost every ailment. I know it isn't available everywhere but when you want it you will get it! In the Netherlands it is 'accepted' to grow 5 plants if there is a medicinal need for it. When you can grow the plants you can make the oil yourself. I already saw some American websites selling products with cannabinoiden but they are very expensive! All legal products with cannabinoiden are made under license of a patend which is owned by the US government.

CB: thc is medicinal when raw. When heated thc is hallucigenic. Cannabinoids are medicinal either raw or heated. Many reviews say that cold pressed hemp oil is beneficial even though the raw thc and cannabinoids are miniscule.

Dr. Burt Berkson has shown that the combination of low dose naltrexone and alpha Lipoic acid can heal the liver. You can see his videos if you google his name. You can also read about how he healed two people who were given no hope of living after ingesting poison mushrooms in Julia Schopick's book, "Honest Medicine. " He believes the ALA should be European sourced. Best wishes.

As a pharmacologically active opioid antagonist Naltrexone, LDN works by blocking opioid receptors, which in turn helps activate your body's immune system.

I'd have him take Reduced Glutathione supplements. This will detox and protect his liver thereby helping the body heal his liver.

What do you mean by "reduced Glutathone" supplements? Do you have a specific name? Thx much.

Replied by Prioris

I mis-spelled it... Reduced glutathione. It essentially allows the body to bypass a conversion steps necessary when versus other forms of glutathione so used directly by the body. One of the reasons why acetaminophen damages the liver is because it depletes the liver of glutathione. When glutathione is depleted, great amount of damage is done to the liver.
