– Hey it's me again.
First thing I want totell you is I don't drink and I don't recommend drinking alcohol, alright so in this video we're going to talk about the liver, specifically how to reverse a fatty liver.
Couple facts about the liver.
The liver is aboutthree and a half pounds, it's huge it's on theright side of your body.
It goes all the way up hereand it's right through here.
Okay, it has over 500 functions.
It does everything from immune control, digestion, detoxification of chemicals, building up of proteins,it does so many things.
It's an amazing, miraculous organ.
It has 50,000 to 100,000small little units of cells that help do the work.
You really could befunctioning pretty good in your body and have 90% of your liver destroyed or dysfunctional.
So a lot of times theliver will not show up until greater than 90% of it's destroyed.
So you can't always go howyou feel with the liver.
But some of the symptomswith a real bad liver issue is you get bloating,you have right shoulder pain through here, the whitesof your eyes turn yellow, there's a lot of skinissues, itching of the bottom of the feet and the palms of the hand, basketball belly likeyou're protruding belly.
But you can really predict the health of the liver by theperson's lifestyle habits.
So there's several stagesof liver damage that occur.
The first one is from inflammation.
Inflammation where itcould come from a virus but it also could comefrom bad eating or alcohol.
So every time you drinkit creates a trauma, kind of a whiplash because you're killing liver cells when you're doing that.
Every time you take Tylenol or medication you kill liver cells.
So it has a lot of damage.
Even some of the medications like Lipitor, for example, willseverely stress the liver and increase the liver enzymes by 500%.
So one of the big side effects.
The medication is supposedto lower your cholesterol which basically haseverything to do with liver, ends up destroying your liver.
It's kind of insane.
So you have an inflammatory condition.
Then you have fatty depositsthat lodge into the liver, so over time the livercan be replaced with fat.
Many people with bellies outto here have a fatty liver.
If they just had an ultrasound they would be able to identify that.
But it's very hard to detectchronic liver problems unless you do a biopsy because it doesn't always show up on a blood test.
So over time when you havethis inflammatory state of continuing damage on theliver because of bad habits, you develop scar tissue and that leads into something called cirrhosis.
Cirrhosis is the liver that is filling up with fibrous tissue that'smaking it dysfunctional and you lose the function of the liver.
But again you can get awaywith only a small portion of liver working before you even notice a lot of the symptoms so just because you are feeling it doesn't mean anything.
Alright, so that's whathappens with the liver.
When the liver swells up because there's not a lot of space it could put pressure on the heart and create a lotof heart arrhythmia issues, a lot of skipped beats, it cancreate high blood pressure, increase pulse rate, why? Because the liver isright next to the heart and it's going to compress on the heart.
When the person sleeps on their left side if they have an enlarged liver, it will compress theheart and make it hard to breathe and sleep at night.
So liver cases tend tosleep better on the right side of their body than the left.
So that's one thing.
Secondly is the liver isone of the only organs in the body that cancompletely 100% regenerate.
That's the good news.
The bad news is it takes a long time to regenerate the liver cells.
It could take up to three years.
But I think the worstrecommendation for people is everything in moderationbecause you cannot heal the liver having amoderate amount of junk food to the diet because again ifyou're drinking every night or every other day or even once a week it could take you one,two, three, four days for that liver to recover and so you never really let it recover.
So it's the accumulation ofletting the liver recover and heal that helps it regenerate.
So it takes a long time.
I had someone do myliver enhancement program and they lost all thisweight but they had called me up and said Dr.
Bergyour liver enhancement doesn't work because Idid it for two weeks, I lost the weight andthen the weight came back.
Come to find out intheir mind they thought they were going to healthe liver in two weeks.
That was a miscalculation.
They need to do it for a lotlonger until that liver heals.
So that's one thing.
So what we want to dois we want to eliminate the things that are destroying the liver.
Now alcohol is probably the top thing that destroys the liver and I do not agree with so calledrecommendations that you can get away with drinking every night.
That does not work, itcreates damage on the liver.
I don't want to get into that, I think that's kind of common sense but what I want to tell you is what to do to get this fat out of the liver.
Number one stop thethings that are destroying the liver and add the things that will create a healthy liver.
One of the most powerfulthings that will do it are the bitter vegetables, theones that don't taste good.
The more bitter the betterlike the collar greens, mustard greens, the kales, the spinaches, those are really goodfor liver regeneration.
The radishes are really good for the liver and you have to start consumingthose on a regular basis.
So the other thing is that the liver does not do well with deep fried foods, but it does need certain oils.
The types of fats thatare good for the liver are the medium chain triglycerides.
Now what does that mean? Like the coconut oils.
The coconut oil is one of the best things as far as the fat tocook in and to consume to help a liver because it doesn't seem to strain the liver at all.
It takes the stress off the liver.
The ones that destrain the liver are like the corn oils that youwould buy at the store or of course the hydrogenated oils.
Those are really really bad.
So we want a healthy liver.
Butter is actually a mediumchain triglyceride too so that would be okay to consume and that takes the stress off the liver.
So bitter vegetables,the other thing that's really good for the liver to clean out some of the toxic wastewould be apple cider vinegar and some of your water.
So if you take like a teaspoonof apple cider vinegar, put it in your water and consume that a few times a day, that is really good to strip off the fat off of that liver.
So as you consume thesevegetables over time that have a lot of the B vitamins too, especially like vitaminB2, choline, folate, all those key B vitamins that help the liver regenerate, over time the liver will get better and betterand better and better but you're just going to have to not drink or not drink so much.
One of the replacements that I like for the alcohol would be the kombucha tea.
You can get it from the health food store.
Kombucha tea creates asimilar effect to alcohol.
You feel very relaxed and calm and again people drink to relax sothat would be one substitute and it's really good for the liver.
But the main thing is the vegetables.
In this product I have it's called the whole cruciferous food.
I created a blend of the garlic, turmeric, radish, brussell sprouts,kale, cabbage, parsley.
Parsley has the most vitamin A, the most nutrition of any vegetable and number two is kale.
Kale is not quite as strong as parsley but it's easier to consumekale in the kale shake so I recommend at least onekale shake for your liver.
But this is a good combinationof cruciferous vegetables.
For those people thatcannot consume that amount of vegetables and theyneed some supplement type help with the liver.
So those are some tips onreversing a fatty liver, it's doable but you have totake aggressive approach, you have to keep creating the liver, give it time, have patience, that's why we call you a patient.
I'm being sarcastic and so go ahead and do that and I willsee you in the next video.
