If the fat in your liver makes up 5–10 percent of the organ’s weight, then you are diagnosed with fatty liver disease. One of the hardest-working organs in the body, the liver works tirelessly to detoxify our blood, to produce the bile needed to digest fat, to break down hormones and to store essential vitamins, minerals and iron. That is why it’s so important to take care of our livers.
For people with fatty liver disease, the handling of fat by liver cells is disturbed. Increased amounts of fat are removed from the blood and produced by liver cells, and not enough is disposed of or exported by the cells. As a result of this, fat accumulates in the liver. There is an imbalance between the uptake of fat and its oxidation and export.
In this video, I share how to heal a fatty liver by removing certain foods from your diet, consuming more cleansing foods and taking care of your mental and emotional health. Watch to learn more.
