Fatty Liver – A Natural Approach to Reverse the Condition Safely

Fatty liver disease affects over 90 million people in the US. While alcoholism and obesity can certainly create the condition, it also has heavy ties to folks who abstain from alcohol. An estimated 20 – 30 percent of American’s have NAFLD. Because the condition progresses with few symptoms, many people today are walking around with the disease and have no clue.

We have to do better!

While the short term effects are usually minimal, the long term effects can be devastating. These include but are not limited to – gastrointestinal bleeding, abnormal brain function (encephalopathy), anemia, cirrhosis, and liver cancer and failure. Without a properly functioning liver, death is certainly possible unless immediate steps are taken to reverse it. Remember, your liver can regenerate is given enough TLC but you have to be willing to change what you’re doing!

What Creates a Fatty Liver?

Fatty liver means that your liver has accumulated an excess of fat, which the liver was never meant to do. The condition sets you up for chronic inflammation and disease. PLEASE do not be fooled into thinking that fat is the culprit. It’s not. Instead it is caused by a lifetime of bad eating habits and an excess of starch and carbohydrates that form excess fat in the liver and belly.

The consumption of dietary fat actually switches off fat production in the liver and does not trigger the pancreas to secrete insulin. Your body would rather burn off fat than store it, unless you combine it with carbs. When you eat the right fats (the good ones), you stimulate metabolism by decreasing hunger pangs and increasing fat burning.

HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) is by far the leader of the pack in the creation of fatty liver. In fact, research shows that fructose is the chief cause of of liver transplants. Fatty liver disease triggers pre-diabetes and insulin resistance, which in turn creates more fat deposits in the organs and belly.

Distressingly, this disease also targets your children, at a rate of 17 percent in the US alone. If children guzzle soda’s that are packed in fructose sugars, they are setting themselves up for fatty liver at an early age.

So as you can probably surmise by now, in order to cure a fatty liver, you’ll need to increase your consumption of healthy fats and vastly decrease (if not eliminate) your intake of carbohydrates and HFCS. Healthy fats DO include saturated fats, like butter and animal fat. It is a LIE that saturated fats cause high cholesterol and clogged arteries, which I go into great detail on this page.

Sugar is the devil in your body. If you eat highly refined foods most of the time made from fructose and flour AND you have a pot belly AND you crave carbs, you probably have fatty liver.

Lets get this straight.

Your government will never tell you all of the truth – so stop looking to them for advice. They sold you out to BIG PHARMA a long time ago. It is time to take your health into your own hands. Do your due diligence to find out the real truths and the false claims!

Reversing a fat-infested liver does take time but it can be done if you’re willing to make some lifestyle changes. You will have more energy, lose mid-section fat, and live a longer, fuller life.

If you do not control your condition, your condition will control you.

How to Reverse a Fatty Liver Naturally

  • Eat a chlorophyll rich diet, including bitter vegetables like collards, kale, spinach, and arugula. You’ll need about one cup per day.

  • Take supplemental herbs that support the liver like dandelion root and milk thistle. Or buy a product that's specifically designed for liver support.

    *Note: do not overcook your veggies. They should realistically still look bright green when consumed.


  • Moderate and then completely cut products that contain HFCS. If you use sugar in your coffee or tea, switch to non gmo verified sugar that does not contain pesticides.

  • Eliminate processed foods from the diet that contain white processed flour and starch. Even whole grain flour can elevate blood sugars. Starches such as cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato starch, and rice starch are also destructive and can cause hypertension and heart disease. Try substituting coconut flour or almond flour in your favorite recipes.

  • Increase healthy fats such as cold pressed olive oil and coconut oil, organic sunflower oil, butter from grass fed cows, and fish oil. Eat unprocessed nuts and seeds that supply those good fats. Eat fat rich foods like avocados and bananas. Even bacon and fat from beef contain the good types of animal fats your body needs and craves. Get off the highly processed oils (hydrogenated oils) such as vegetable oil and canola oil, which are pure CRAP in your body.

  • Supplements like alpha lipoic acid, NAC, B vitamins, and magnesium support the liver and can be liver-healing.

  • Protein, especially for breakfast, is extremely important because it helps balance blood sugar and insulin first thing in the day. It also helps cut cravings throughout the day by giving your liver the raw materials it needs to detoxify. Try protein rich shakes or one or two local farm eggs for breakfast.

  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recommends sour foods to heal the liver. Take apple cider vinegar (2T in water daily) or just drink lemon water several times daily. In addition, try to incorporate as many of these foods as possible. Although TCM dietary therapy is just one way to correct an organ imbalance, it is a very powerful tool that shouldn’t be overlooked.

  • Tone liver blood – spirulina, dark grapes, blackberries , blackstrap molasses, gelatin, artichoke, beets, dandelion leaf, kelp, avocado, dates, black sesame seed, oysters, chicken soup, eggs, beef and organic animal liver.

  • Cool liver heat – bean sprouts, celery, lettuce, cucumber, watercress, plums, mushrooms, rhubarb, radish.

  • Reduce liver wind – celery, basil, sage, fennel, ginger, anise, oats, black sesame seed, pine nuts, coconut, fresh cold-pressed flax oil, lemon.

    Foods that block liver wind are eggs, crab meat and buckwheat.

    If your mid section looks like you swallowed a basketball, it is a CLEAR SIGN that you're body is struggling to maintain good health - and that you probably have fatty liver disease. Please do not ignore it. It will not go away without the proper intervention and a severe change in diet and lifestyle.
