Suggest remedy for liver ailments

1. Doc says I have an overproductive liver, but I don t drink alcohol and I only take over the counter medicines maybe twice a year at the most (I try to stay away from artificial drugs). What s making my liver overproductive? 2. What s a natural way to decrease lip size? Info: Im 17, 5 10 , 140 lbs, have asthma and allergies, allergic to wheat, corn, soy, and sesame. I m lactose intolerant. I ve been eating 3-5 times a day and drinking protien shakes 2-3 times a week for the past 5 months for weight training. I ignore my allergies and eat whatever I want. I don t drink milk alone but I eat alot of other dairy products like ice cream and yogurt. I don t take any medicine for my asthma or allergies.

Hello,

When there is liver dysfunction, liver may start overproducing bile, blood reports may show elevated liver enzymes (high AST or ALT), liver may get enlarged (hepatomegaly) and scarred (cirrhosis). Symptoms may cause you to bloat, your appetite will get decreased, you will feel fatigue & weakness, abdominal pain and swelling, dark urine, etc.

To detox your liver you should reduce stress and take rest between work, reduce your sugar intake, take lean meat avoid red meat, take more of liver cleansing food( citrus fruits, lentils, carrot and beet juice, sugarcane juice, papayas, etc. Avoid spicy, oily food, trans fat, cheese, full fat milk, refined flour, salty food, addictions if any. Do not take alcohol, cut on protein shakes to reduce your liver load, do not over eat. Eat only the amount your body requires so that your liver gets healed.

Take boiled food or food cooked in olive oil. Take adequate sleep. You can take liver tonics & digestives to tone up your liver. Get clinically examined and get imaging tests & liver function tests done to detect any liver malfunction and enlargement (hepatomegaly). Get treated at the earliest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
