Preventing Fatty Liver Disease
by Extraordinary Health Writers, Comments by Christine Dreher, CCN, CCH

Maybe you’ve heard of foie gras. It’s French for “fat liver”—a food made from the liver of a duck or goose specially fattened by force feeding. The making of foie gras is highly controversial, but did you know that humans could also be sitting ducks due to their fat livers? It’s true—and it’s a growing unhealthy trend as well as the focus of several studies.

A fatty liver may not sound all that threatening, but it can and does cause more problems than most people realize. Being overweight is a major risk factor for fatty liver, so if you’re carrying around excess pounds, then you may want to consider just how much that extra weight is affecting your liver health.

The truth is that non-alcoholic related liver un-health is a global problem and, like the growing obesity trend, is reaching epidemic proportions worldwide. In fact, the number of people at risk for developing chronic liver issues is likely to increase.

One of the primary ways of paving the way to an unhealthy liver is consuming excessive calories—just like the ducks and geese being groomed for foie gras. Here’s why: when the liver doesn’t process and break down fats as it should, then too much fat accumulates around it. Therefore, those who may be more at risk for developing extra heft in their livers include those who are overweight, those with unbalanced blood sugar and triglyceride levels, as well as those who undergo rapid weight loss or who are malnourished. Some people, however, can develop a fatty liver without any of these situations, so everyone should be aware. Note from Christine: Those that have had their gall bladders removed are at a higher risk of fatty livers. See my comments and recommendations at the bottom of this article.

A fatty liver may cause no damage at all or it may lead to liver inflammation, which can cause liver damage. This may, in turn, lead to tissue scarring and/or hardening of the liver (cirrhosis) and can ultimately lead to liver failure.

One of the ways to support your liver’s health is to eat a healthy diet and don’t overeat. You should also safely lose any excess weight—at the rate of about one-to-two pounds per week—and increase your physical activity. Maintaining healthy triglyceride and blood sugar levels is smart, too.

Treating your liver right is important because it does so much. For instance, it manufactures blood-clotting factors and synthesizes proteins, including one called albumin, which helps maintain blood volume. The liver also metabolizes fats, including fatty acids and cholesterol. Additionally, the liver metabolizes and stores carbohydrates, which are used for the glucose that red blood cells and the brain use. It also aids in the intestinal absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K. As if that weren’t enough, the liver also eliminates harmful biochemical bodily products and helps to detoxify the body.

Since proper liver function is so foundational for health, maybe that’s why fatty liver is currently the focus of intense research. After all, who wants to be a sitting duck with a fatty liver?

Christine’s Comments and Suggestions:

For those that are in need of Lipotropic support to prevent fatty livers (including for those that have had their gall bladders removed), there are two preventative formulas that I recommend to use on a daily basis:

  • Lipotropic Complex by Nature’s Life is specifically designed to help healthy liver function including to catabolize and metabolize lipids and fats.
     
  • Omegazyme Ultra by Garden of Life is the ultimate high potency, broad spectrum digestive enzyme formula, providing 21 different digestive enzymes specifically selected to digest fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. ). Lipase is the fat digestive enzyme to help digest fat consumed during meals and is included in this formula in a high potency level of 5,000 FIP per serving (at least 20% more than other formulas).
     
  • I also recommend a liver cleanse done at least once or twice a year to help remove congestion and toxins from the liver. Here’s two recommendations for relatively easy 2 week cleanse programs to support liver cleansing and more: The Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox program by Garden of Life has been the leader in providing a complete detoxification of the liver, colon, kidneys, and lymphatic system in Canada now for over 25 years. The Complete Body Cleanse by Life-Flo is a 2 week liver, colon, and heavy metal cleanse that I suggest, along with a clean cleansing type diet. For help with a cleansing diet, I suggest reading my book “The Cleanse Cookbook” by Christine Dreher, CCN, CCH.

In addition, a healthy whole food diet, rich in healthy fats from nuts, wild fish, avocados, omega 3 fish oils, fresh produce, grass-fed dairy and meat, and whole grains is very helpful to prevent fatty liver disease. I suggest reading the book “Maker’s Diet” by Jordan Rubin for healthy diet information and support.
