Hey, guys, Dr. Josh Axe here. Welcome to Ancient Medicine Today. So excited to be here with you. On today’s episode, I’m going to be covering
how to heal a fatty liver. And a lot of people have liver issues and
don’t even realize it. Your liver is responsible for detoxing so
many things we’re exposed to on a regular basis from environmental toxins, heavy metals,
pesticides in our foods and a whole lot more. And at the end, you’ll also learn your liver
really even has to deal with certain emotions you experience, such as forgiveness, frustration
and anger. So, on today’s episode, I’m going to be going
through how to cleanse and heal your liver. So, this is great for detox and cleansing,
but especially for helping reverse and heal a fatty liver. Let’s dive right in. Number one here, hydrogenated oils. These are things you want to remove from your
diet. We know hydrogenated oils are some of the
most inflammatory foods on the planet and remember this–your liver deals with fat. Your liver actually produces bile and helps
you break down and digest fat, so if you’re consuming inflammatory bad fats on a regular
basis, that’s going to cause liver inflammation, can back up the liver and the gallbladder,
causing a fatty liver and toxicity in your body. Now, some of the main hydrogenated oils you
want to stay away from include any type of vegetable oil that has been heated or processed,
specifically soy bean oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil and even in certain regards canola
oil is partially hydrogenated. So, again, those vegetable oils you want to
stay away from completely, those will cause a fatty liver in the body. Now, the good news is there are some good
and healthy fats you can do that we’ll cover, things like coconut oil, ghee, even animal
fats that are organic tend to be much better on the body. Of course flaxseed oil is a better option
as well. But stay away from these hydrogenated oils. They’re high in omega-6 fats. Them being hydrogenated as well is going to
cause that liver inflammation, which will cause that fattiness to build up in your liver
over time. Number two here, sugar. Now, what’s just as inflammatory as hydrogenated
oil is processed sugar. Now, if we’re talking about a little bit of
raw local honey or fruit, those types of sweeteners your body can deal with much better, but processed
sugar is very inflammatory to your entire body, including your liver. Your liver is actually also really closely
connected to insulin production in your body. It works with your pancreas at keeping your
blood sugar levels balanced. What happens is if you consume too much sugar,
sugar stays in your bloodstream and sugar will cause inflammation and it can cause systemic
inflammation throughout your body. But that’s one of the biggest things that
will cause your body to start to accumulate these bad fats surrounding your organ issues
over time. So, again, getting rid of sugar. Sugar is also the biggest culprit when it
comes to weight gain. If you’re overweight, one of the great things
is by getting sugar out of your diet, not only is going to help you heal a fatty liver,
it’s also going to help you in losing weight and feeling great. Now, here are some of the top foods you need
to start eating today to start to heal a fatty liver and reverse disease within your body. Number three here, we’re going to talk about
the number three step–get more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Fruits and vegetables are very cleansing to
your liver and to your gallbladder. So, fruits and vegetables, they really don’t
have any fat in them for the most part. They’re just going to be high in phytonutrients,
vitamins and minerals. They’re going to naturally cleanse the liver. So, whether you’re doing vegetable juices,
fermented vegetables like sauerkraut can be great. Also, again, any type of fruit. These are going to be very cleansing to the
liver. And number four here, drinking lots of bone
broth. Bone broth contains an amino acid called glycine,
which is actually responsible for supporting your liver and the detoxification process
and healing the liver. Again, if you’re consuming a lot of animal
meats such as chicken or beef but you’re not getting those tendons and ligaments in broths,
you’re missing a crucial amino acid in glycine, which supports liver detoxification. So, I recommend at least one cup of bone broth
every day or a scoop of bone broth powder protein every single day. The next thing here, this might surprise you,
actually eating liver. Now, within Chinese medicine, an ancient medicine,
it was known that when you consumed a body part of an animal, it actually nourished that
tissue of your own body. You know that chicken liver, again, organic
chicken liver, is very high in B-vitamins, especially vitamin B12, very high in healthy
levels of iron. These nutrients, especially these B-vitamins
are crucial for liver detoxification. So, if you want to support liver detoxification
and get nature’s ultimate B-vitamin, organic chicken liver, you can buy this at your local
farmers market, buy it at health food stores, buy it online as well, you could have it shipped
to your home, or you can buy it in tablet form as a desiccated liver tablet. But again, try and buy organic anytime you’re
doing chicken liver. Again, this is actually the food that’s highest
in B-vitamins of any food out there today. In fact, it’s more nutrient dense that kale
and spinach if you look at all the nutritional factors found in chicken or beef liver. Number six here, coconut oil and flax oil. Now, coconut oil is easier for your body to
digest than other oils, especially for your liver. So, your body has to go through a more lengthy
process in breaking down fats when it comes from a monounsaturated fat or a polyunsaturated
fat such as almonds or avocados or olive oil versus coconut oil, these are called medium
chain fatty acids. Now, one benefit, they’re antimicrobial in
nature, but also your body only has to go through a three-step process to burn them
and utilize them for energy. So, coconut oil when you’re cooking should
you be your go to oil you’re using on a regular basis. I would also say using coconut milk can be
great if you’re looking for a milk or fat substitute. And then flaxseed oil. Now, you don’t want to do large amounts of
flaxseed oil, about a tablespoon once or twice a day with a little bit of lemon juice can
actually naturally help cleanse your gallbladder as well as your liver, helping heal a fatty
liver. Now, let’s talk about some herbal supplements
and some of my favorite herbs for healing your liver specifically. Number one is going to be milk thistle. Milk thistle is sort of the ultimate detoxifier
of the body. Milk thistle we know contains a compound called
silymarin, which is actually you typically want to consume 150 milligrams twice a day. You can do that in capsule form or do it as
an herbal tea is greatly beneficial. So, milk thistle, one of my favorite herbs
for naturally cleansing and healing the liver. The other would be turmeric. Now, turmeric contains two compounds, one
being curcumin, another one being turmerone, but curcumin specifically has been shown to
help cleanse the liver as well as the kidneys, helping reverse a fatty liver. So, again, milk thistle is incredible as well
as turmeric. A few others that are greatly beneficial include
artichokes and dandelion, which actually I’ll talk about here in a minute when we jump into
some bitter foods as we talk about dandelion being one of the best. Now, number eight is sour foods. This is another principle of Chinese medicine. Sour foods help support it’s called tonifying
or strengthening the over actions of your liver. So, sour foods think sauerkraut, granny smith
apples, kimchi, kombucha, natto, any food that is really more sour in nature, different
types of berries, blueberries would be an example of this as well, but sour foods help
support cleansing of the liver. And a couple more of my favorite sour foods
would be citrus fruit such as lemons and limes as well as apple cider vinegar. These are very, very cleansing to the liver
as well and can help reverse a fatty liver. Number nine here, bitter foods. Now, bitter foods actually cause your liver
and gallbladder to release bile, which in turn releases toxins from your body. So, bitter foods, dandelion greens, arugula,
watercress, these are bitter in nature. Other bitter foods include a lot of herbs
such as dill and dandelion are very bitter in nature as well. These are great things to add into your diet. Cumin is another herb that’s bitter in nature. So, doing lots of herbs and spices in your
diet. One thing I’d recommend here as well is drinking
dandelion tea. Dandelion and milk thistle tea throughout
your day, these are very bitter, but also help your body in dumping and releasing those
toxins that can be stored up in your liver and over tissues in your body. So, these top nine tips are big. But maybe the most important step of them
all when it comes to cleansing and healing your liver is to practice forgiveness and
build peace in your life. Now, within Chinese medicine, they know and
have studied that the emotions of frustration, anger and impatience and forgiveness, those
are the biggest things that will cause your liver to store toxins and not release and
cleanse and function properly. So, I would challenge you to do this. If you have people you have not forgiven in
your life, go back–I would take some time right now, write down anybody who you still
are holding on to hurts in your life. It could have happened when you were a child
or more recently, but write down those people and take time right now and take time right
now to say out loud, “I forgive this person.” Pray it through. This is also great to do with an accountability
partner, a spiritual leader, a church or a pastor or a psychologist or counselor, but
forgiving people number on and then also looking at getting rid of frustration and patience
in your life. One of the ways I love to do this is going
on walks in nature, taking a warm bath at night, and also just spending time reading
something spiritual, like the Bible, just spending some time doing things that allow
you to release impatience and frustration and anger can be greatly beneficial at helping
you detox your liver. Remember these steps in closing. Number one, get rid of the hydrogenated oils
out of your diet completely. Replace them with things like flax oil, coconut
oil, olive oil are better options. Remove all sugar from your diet. If you are going to do some sugar, raw local
honey is best. Eat more fruits and vegetables, drink bone
broth daily. Try some organic chicken liver if you can. It’s nature’s natural B-vitamin. Coconut and flax oil, herbal supplements such
as milk thistle and turmeric, sour foods such as sauerkraut, green apples, lemons and limes,
bitter foods such as gentian herb and dandelion and cumin are great. And then forgiveness and building peace–if
you follow these tips, you’re going to see your liver heal, can help reverse a fatty
liver disease. Guys, I hope you’ve enjoyed this live training
video. This has been, Dr. Josh Axe, talking about
how to heal a fatty liver.

Subbed but I just want to say that you forgot to mention grass-fed animal fats for cooking as well, which I personally prefer over coconut oil, much better flavor and also has different health benefits than coconut oil.

Out of all the videos in English I watched today, about a dozen, You are the only one that said that fruit also helps to reverse fatty liver, in Spanish speaking many doctors can agree with you in the use of the right kind of fruit to improve the disease. You also mention reading the Bible as a way of relaxation, I really like your video. I’m going to save it for watching it again. Thank you so much 😊

Dr Axe, thank you for the video and the very last advice is something that is most apt.

My question though would be specific to ACV. My fatty liver progressed to cirrhosis despite not being an alcohol drinker, never had hepatitis or family background.

I've lost weight and need to gain some. Would ACV still be a good option for me to help cleanse and possibly reverse the condition?

Your thoughts are very much appreciated. Thanks

I hate to tell you all but fruit, which has fructose. Is 1 of the things that will cause fatty liver. Even though it's not high fructose. It is fructose and it is damaging to the liver. You want to heal your liver to not eat fruit until you're healed later on you can deal with it. But not while you're healing.
