Preventing and Reversing Acidic Fatty Liver



Fatty liver occurs when excess acids are bound to fat which accumulates inside liver cells to protect it from excess metabolic and dietary acids. This means normal, healthy liver tissue becomes partly replaced with fatty tissue to protect against the acidic waste products of lifestyle and diet.

The acidic fat starts to increase in the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas, so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains.

The acidic fatty liver has a yellow greasy appearance and is often enlarged and swollen with fat. This acidic fatty infiltration slows down the metabolism of body fat stores, which means that the liver burns fat less efficiently, resulting in weight gain and inability to lose weight. However some people can have a fatty liver without being overweight.

Acidic fatty liver is a reversible condition and often has no symptoms and does not cause any permanent damage.

The liver is the second largest organ in the body. The liver’s function is to process everything we eat or drink and filter any harmful substances from the blood. The liver commonly repairs itself within six weeks by rebuilding new liver cells when the old ones are damaged. When there is repeated damage to the liver, permanent scarring takes place. This is called cirrhosis.

Most cases of acidic fatty liver are detected between ages 40 and 60. When acidic fatty liver is caused by an underlying condition, it can become harmful to the liver if the cause is not recognized and treated.

There are typically no symptoms of fatty liver. Some people experience fatigue or vague abdominal discomfort. The liver may become slightly enlarged—which will be noticed by the doctor thorough a physical exam.

If the liver has become inflamed, there may be other symptoms, such as poor appetite, weight loss, and feeling extremely weak, sick, or tired.

The most common cause of a fatty liver is alcoholism. Almost all heavy drinkers have acidic fatty liver disease due to severe metabolic acidosis. Other causes are toxins, certain drugs, and inherited metabolic disorders. In many cases, doctors are not exactly sure what causes acidic fatty liver in people who aren’t alcoholics, but it has been associated with high blood cholesterol, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.  All of these symptoms are also caused by an increase of dietary and/or metabolic acids that are NOT properly removed via the four channels of elimination which are respiration, perspiration, defecation and/or urination.

Acidc fatty liver develops when the body creates too much fat or cannot eliminate acidic waste products from diet and/or metabolism. As a result, the leftover acid is stored in liver cells where it accumulates to become acidic fatty liver disease.
.
There are different types of fatty liver:

- Nonalcoholic Acidic Fatty Liver
Nonalcoholic acidic fatty liver (NAAFL) develops when the liver has difficulty eliminating acidic waste products, which causes a buildup in the liver tissue. The cause is not related to alcohol but is related to excess sugar in the diet.  NAAFL is diagnosed when more than 10 percent of the liver is acidic fat.

- Alcoholic Acidic Fatty Liver
Alcoholic acidic fatty liver is the earliest stage of alcohol-related liver disease. The liver is damaged by heavy drinking and unable to break down fats. If the patient abstains from the acid alcohol and eats healthy, the acidic fatty liver will go away. Within six weeks of being alcohol-free, the acid bound fat will disappear. However, if excessive alcohol use continues, cirrhosis or degeneration of the liver may develop.
.
Since acidic fatty liver is the buildup of extra acid bound fats in the liver, it is more likely to develop if someone is eating lots of acidic sugar and animal proteins which causes overweight or obesity.
Other factors that may increase the risk for acidic fatty liver are:
• excessive alcohol use
• excessive use of over-the-counter medication can increase your risk of acidic fatty liver
• type 2 diabetes (acid bound fat from an acidic lifestyle and diet causes accumulation in the liver and has been linked to insulin resistance, the most common cause of type 2 diabetes)
• high cholesterol which is released by the liver to bind to dietary and/or metabolic acids to protect healthy organs and tissues
• high triglyceride levels which are solidified dietary and/or metabolic acids
• malnutrition or not getting enough alkalizing fruit and vegetables
• metabolic syndrome which is caused by the buildup and poor elimination of dietary and/or metabolic acids
.
Possible symptoms of acidic fatty liver include:
.
• Weight excess in the abdominal area
• Inability to lose acid bound fat causing overweight
• Elevated cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels
• Fatigue
• Nausea and/or indigestion
• Constipation
• Overheating of the body
• Excessive sweating to remove excess acids through the pores of the skin
• Red itchy eyes
• Discomfort over the liver area
.
How to diagnose an Acidic Fatty Liver
.
- Physical Exam
If the liver has become inflamed, physician can detect it by examining the abdomen. An extensive history may reveal fatigue or loss of appetite as well. A thorough history will include poor diet, alcohol use and other medications or supplements.
.
- Blood Tests
Higher than normal liver enzymes may be found on a routine blood test. This does not confirm a diagnosis of acidic fatty liver. Further analysis will look for the cause of inflammation.
.
- Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound and Thermography
Ultrasound of the abdomen (anatomical test) usually shows the liver is “echogenic,” that is more dense than usual toward sound waves. The liver can also be enlarged due to fat.
Thermography is the test of physiology and is the only test to visualize the inflammation in the liver.

- Other imaging studies may be done as well such as a CT (computed tomography) scan or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).
.
To reduce the risk of acidic fatty liver, make healthy alkaline lifestyle choices, such as:
• Avoid alcohol consumption
• Avoid smoking
• Discontinue drugs or toxins
• Avoid highly acidic fast and junk food
• Choose a healthy alkaline diet of green fruit and vegetables
• Use antioxidants to buffer or solidify excess dietary and/or metabolic acids to protect further damage to the liver
• Maintain a healthy weight with an alkaline lifestyle and diet as outlined in the pH Miracle revised and updated book by Dr. Robert O. Young
• Increase hydration with alkaline ionized water and raw green juices, soups and shakes
• Exercise every day for at least 60 minutes
• Add a lymphatic massage and infrared sauna to your routine to remove retained acids through the pores of the skin

Conventional Medicine -The Third Leading Cause of Death in America!


More than 1,000 people die every day from preventable medical errors in U.S. hospitals. These errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. killing more people than strokes, diabetes or accidents.

Preventable medical errors in hospitals are the third leading cause of death in the United States, a Senate panel was told on Thursday. Only heart disease and cancer kill more Americans. “Medical harm is a major cause of suffering, disability, and death – as well as a huge financial cost to our nation,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said at the outset of the hearing by the Senate Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging. “This is a problem that has not received anywhere near the attention that it deserves and today I hope that we can focus a spotlight on this matter of such grave consequence,” added Sanders, the panel’s chairman.

The Journal of Patient Safety recently published a study which concluded that as many as 440,000 people die each year from preventable medical errors in hospitals.Tens of thousands also die from preventable mistakes outside hospitals, such as deaths from missed diagnoses or because of injuries from medications.

The new research followed up on a landmark study, To Err is Human, conducted by the Institute of Medicine 15 years ago, when researchers reported that as many as 98,000 people die in hospitals each year due to preventable medical errors. Experts now say that figure was too low and hospitals have been too slow to make improvements.

There has been some progress, Dr. Peter Pronovost of Johns Hopkins University testified. Yet thousands of patients still are dying unnecessarily from infections, preventable blood clots, adverse drug events, falls, overexposure to medical radiation and diagnostic errors. “We need to declare right now that preventable harm is unacceptable and work to prevent all types of harm,” Pronovost said.

Compared to the rest of the world, the United States is about average. “While average is OK, given that we spend more on health care than any other country we should be a lot better. Our high spending is not buying us particularly safe care,” said Dr. Ashish Jha of the Harvard School of Public Health.

Other reports have examined the impact of medical mistakes on segments of America’s patient population. A Department of Health and Human Services report in 2010 said180,000 Medicare patients die each year from preventable adverse events in the hospital. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2011 said 1-in-25 hospital patients get an infection from being in the hospital; 700,000 of them get sick as a result and 75,000 die.

In addition to deaths and injuries, medical errors also cost billions of dollars. One 2011 study put the figure at $17 billion a year. Counting indirect costs like lost productivity due to missed work days, medical errors may cost nearly $1 trillion each year, according to a 2012 report in the Journal of Health Care Finance. Lisa McGiffert of Consumers Union spoke about the everyday impact on individuals and families. “People who are harmed lose their jobs, their homes, their insurance. Many go bankrupt trying to pay the medical bills that they would not have had if they had not been harmed by a health care provider,” she said.

The Great and Abominable Secret?

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." (John F. Kennedy)
And so it is with Pasteur's germ theory or the foundaiton of modern medicine, where all mythical facts are prefabricated upon a set of interpretations. Not for the sake of truth but for the sake of making money.
The Birth of Modern Medicine; Pasteur vs Bechamp
The ‘medical model’ upon which allopathic (drug based) medicine has been built, is based upon a single person’s ability to convince scientists of the day that his opinions were correct. Many of you may have heard of Louis Pasteur, a French chemist, 1822-1895. His currently accepted ‘germ theory’ suggested that germs were the cause of all human disease, were airborne, and would attack or infect us if we failed to protect ourselves with chemical drugs and vaccines.
His contemporary was a man named Antoine Bechamp (French biologist 1816 – 1908) who completely rejected Pasteur’s beliefs, maintaining mere exposure to a germ was not enough to get sick. That germs or bacteria, including MRSA do harmlessly survive within us, but that they change their form and proliferate given an over-acidic and unfavourable environment. It is that over-acidic environment, not the germ itself that creates ‘dis-ease’ for the host.
We are constantly breathing in some 14,000 germs or bacteria per hour. If germs are so harmful, why aren’t we all dead?
However, Pasteur was a confident man with many connections who, having plagiarised the research of Bechamp, distorted it, and submitted it to the French Academy of Science as his own, then toured to promote his own theory throughout the wider scientific establishment. Pasteur built up a devoted following with people acclaiming him a scientific genius! It was also the start of the Industrial Revolution and employees didn’t want their workers off sick, so his theory was considered very attractive indeed; people didn’t need to take ‘responsibility’ for their own health any longer. And the solution seemed easy enough – treat all ‘dis-ease’ with a chemical substance, or prevent ‘dis-ease’ with a chemical vaccine. The pharmaceuticals were delighted!
Sadly, the more humble Bechamp’s work didn’t quite make the headlines. Although as slight consolation, Pasteur on his deathbed did acknowledge that Bechamp was right and said ‘the microbe (germ) is nothing: the terrain is everything’.
Too late? … modern drug based medicine was born!
The statistics tell the truth - 1 out of 2 persons will be diagnosed with cancer. The business of cancer diagnostics and so-called drug-based treatment is a 5 trillion dollar business. The War on Cancer and Disease is Over and Big Business and Big Pharma have won!
And NOW the truth!
"Germs do NOT cause disease! Germs are the biological transformations of cellular breakdown and NOT the cause of that breakdown." Dr. Robert O. Young
"There is only one sickness, one disease and one treatment. The one sickness and one disease is the over-acidification of the blood and then tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating and thinking. The one treatment of ALL sickness and disease is to restore and maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet." Dr. Robert O. Young
"The cure for cancer and ALL dis-ease will NOT be found in its treatment but is NOW found in its prevention!" Dr. Robert O. Young
So what is the great and abominable secret?
