Liver is considered as one of the most intelligent organs of the human body that performs many functions simultaneously. It produces bile, which is transferred to the intestine and helps in the digestion of food.It excretes toxic and waste material from the body, produces cholesterol and makes proteins that help in the repair of old tissues and building of new tissues. It also stores and releases energy that helps the body in performing various functions. It is the only organ in the body that regenerates itself when injured. Any damage in the liver interferes with all these functions. There are around four liver disorders.


Cirrhosis of liver refers to all forms of liver disease. It is one of the serious hepatic diseases. In this disease the liver contracts in size and becomes hard and leathery.

Poke Root, boil it, drain the juice, store in refrigerator. Rub on itching areas, burns for a little while and clears up faster than anything I have ever used. Also helps arthritis.

Take some skin removed musterd seeds , dry grind them in the food processor without water. It will look like a yellow powder. It tastes very pungent. Cut a banana ( preferably the yellow type) in two strips, place as much powder in between, join the banana strips together. Eat it empty stomach for 5 days. Consume at least 2-3 teaspoons with banana. Its works like a miracle for jaundice cure.

He curently has jaundice to, he is not a canidate for transplant due to alcohol / drug abuse in the past. He has been on Methadone for the last few years.

My aunty is suffering from lever failure due to blockage. Doctor suggest for lever transplant or she has harly one year to live. He suggested to have more protein or milk products and to minimize water to 1.2 liter per day. In such condition, is the above diet suitable or you have other remedies, please suggest.

Hi, a relative has had chronic liver cirrhosis and if there is one enemy of cirrhosis is animal protein, so Suraj, ask your doctor again about the consumption of animal products. They should be eliminated completely, replace with plant protein, lots of vegies and fruits

Hi Everyone!!!

Someone told me about ORGANIC POTATO Juice. So just use a Juicer to squeeze out the potato and add apple juice to make it drink easier. Its helpful, cause i had an Uncle that has Hepatitis B and it cure it. When he went for a check up... the doctor can't detect nothing.

Go and search for Natural Remedies for Potato and it has alot of things to cure!!!

God Bless Us All!

Hello All.
I have just found out my mom has Cirrhosis of the Liver, they said its 90-95% NOT working. She just got out of the Hospital today and she had 15 Liters of Ascites drained, they said only thing is a liver transplant, and for her to even get on the list would take 1 YEAR! (Because its from alcohol)
I am going to fly her to me and going to put her on a juice fast with all the cures I can find.


Thank you all,

1. Dr. Schultze liver cleanse - works wonders!
2. Soak a flannel cloth with Cold pressed CASTER oil place on area of liver with a heat pad. This helps the blood to flow through the liver.

I am 27 years old guy. I had a habbit of drinking alcohol daily.
I quit drinking 15 months back without any medical treatment or anything.
i just decided to do it and quit it. Now it's 16th month when i have never consumed alcohol within these 15 months.

But before i quit it, i suffered from a big problem.
Now here i tell you the amount i used to drink those days:
360 ml a day - whisky daily
I used to drink 90 ml of alcohol in one shot i.e. top to bottom in less water. i used to take 4 shots of 90 ml alcohol in around 3-4 hours.
One day when i didn't eat anything and went on drinkng alochol, after some time i felt weakness and i went to sleep.
when i got up there was a pain in my stomach. I drank a glass of water but it came back and i vommited it. i was not able to eat or drink anything.
The feeling in my chest was like there was something kept in my chest like a stone. I noticed that there was a swelling between my chest and stomach (i think it is liver)
Next day i felt alittle bit better than previous day.

Still i have a swelling in my liver (i am not sure). i dont feel hungry, i do not feel any energy, i dont feel any interest in anything.
I have lost my stamina in doing my work. I have gas problems. I guess my degestion is not geeting done well. I think i had gone through liver imflamation.
But good thing about me is i do not drink and i never have a feeling to drink due to my strong will power.

Kindly let me know the severity of my problem. is it dangerous?
Please suggest the treatment on this.
I will be very thankful if i ever get rid of this problem.

Thanks and Regards,

it's been shown that drinking non chlorinated lemon water each morning before putting anything in your mouth, including not brushing your teeth, wil help the liver to detoxify itself. google it. also, in some cases, the person can do liver pumps on himself as well. google that also. the liver is capable of repairing itself in many cases.
hope this helps.
hope this info helps.

I've been taking vicodin and drinking about 20 beers a day started in 2011 did that for two years strait then cut back my skin has become itchy and every once in a while I have little pains on the right side of my rib cage and have light bleeding in my stool anyone know what this is and is it to late?
#27 - tmantoni - 03/18/2014 - 23:28
Itching is a symptom of cirrhosis. It’s not too late to try to let your liver heal. Avoid alcohol completely and don’t take any pills whatsoever. The good tissues left in your liver will regenerate. Scar tissue on the other hand does not. You most likely have cirrhosis. You need to see a gastroenterologist asap. They will let you know what to do to live with it. If you continue to drink and take drugs you might as well get your affairs in line.
