Did you know the liver is the only organ that regenerates itself? Well let’s get started!!
More and more people are being diagnosed with NAFLD, a condition most people have never heard of, yet many people have it and may not even know it. It stands for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Read on.
One of the best foods for the liver is beets, so here is my video on the easiest recipe ever, Shredded Beets!
Fat accumulates in the liver, causing inflammation, and a host of other issues. It can create insulin resistance and pre-diabetes. You may not notice any symptoms, or you may have fatigue and general malaise. Although you may think excess fat in the diet is the cause, this is usually not the case, in that most often sugar and white flours are the culprits. The next time you have blood tests ordered, ask your doctor to test for fatty liver disease. Once you know, you have a whole arsenal of remedies available to you. Diet, a few specific supplements, and lifestyle changes will get you back on the road to health. Please call me if you need help and/or support for this process. As well, as soon as we are able to resume my Cookin’ in the Country workshops, I will present on this topic.
If you shred a large amount of beets, as suggested in the video, try the raw Beet Salad on page 66 of Eat Away Illness, a favorite.
Enjoy cooking with beets!
