    Hepatic cirrhosis is surely one of the most virulent death causes from the liver diseases. It is the illness that the liver becomes hardened bit by bit as it progresses for a certain period of time; it is also highly risky in that the liver cancer, to much extent, is developed by the disease. The early symptoms of hepatic cirrhosis are similar to those of chronic hepatitis: general helplessness, nausea, false sense of satiety, constipation, diarrhea, etc.

    Especially in hepatic cirrhosis, blood circulation is badly affected from the liver fibrosis thereby causing blood leaking and stagnated between the peritonea, which is called ascites. When in severe condition, the demolition of liver cells and fibrosis worsen and the regeneration of cell weakens; body gets emaciated due to the malnutrition.

    In the oriental medicine, the treatment starts, like in other liver-related diseases, from herbal medication. Before the herbal treatment, the physical constitution of the patient should be diagnosed in advance.

    The herbal medicines in the oriental medicine for this disease are ‘chi-gan-tang” made of more than 16 herbal medical substance or ‘on-joong-hwan’.

    All the diseases can be prevented in ordinary times and hepatic cirrhosis is no exception. More than anything else, hepatitis B must be prevented. To do that, overeating, drinking, smoking and salty foods need to be avoided; among them, excessive drinking is the most direct factor to the disease.

    Other than above, taking full rest and quenching the stress should be accompanied.

Besides other medical usages, cassia occidentalis is very superb in normalizing the liver and toughening the kidneys. The protection of many liver-related diseases such as amblyopia, cataract, glaucoma, constipation, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, hyperlipidemia, fatty liver. Especially, when it is boiled and taken as tea, it can reduce the fat in the liver speedily.

    my doctor is telling me that actually a liver detox is a very healthy thing if it is done naturally, I will try to detox my liver, it is just a case of being a little cautious because of the things that I have read about detox.

  4. Corinne

    I seriously need to reduce my caffeine. I have got to the point where I am leaning on it to keep me going. I am tired all the time and suffer break outs.
    I can’t stand green tea but green tea with lemon in is drinkable. If it is better for the body, I’ll make myself get use to it.

    I am not a person who drinks alot of alcohol but I have been a smoker for a long time. Recently I have started to gain weight and I do not know what might be the problem. I eat as much as I usually eat but still I am gaining weight. I do abit sports but that is not helping at all. What might be the problem?

  6. Ali

    I really should get around to having a good detox. I don’t always feel we need detoxes from certain foods as that really is what the liver’s purpose is but I don’t believe the liver was ever intended to filter toxins like metals and alcohol, so giving it a rest through detox is a good idea.

  7. Melly

    It’ll be hard to protect my liver 🙂
    No alcohol and sweets? Thats a hard task. But it’s for yourself to decide about your health.
    Anyway, great article, people should think about it.

    How long does a liver detox take? Should I do it regularly or just once in a while? It seems easy to do and I have everything I need in the cupboard already.

  9. Resa

    These are great tips. My mother always told me that lemon water is a good detoxifier and it’s really worked well for me. I’ve found that when I start the day with a cup of it, I’m happier, calmer, and my stomach is a little flatter.

  10. Alicia

    My diet is not very good but still moderate. I don’t really decide to detox until I start feeling sluggish or if I have really abused my Liver, like around Christmas time. New year is usually a heavy detox for me, not because of resolutions but because I know my body needs a rest.

    I have to share this because my friends are all hard drinkers and I know this will them realize that they should do something about it. I like the title “ Be a Liver Lover” .

  12. Paula

    Such an awesome article about living healthy and long life. As you suggested, every morning I drink 2-3 glass of water then morning walk followed by green tea.

    I’ve been drinking tap water almost all my life and only recently (two months ago) stopped because a friend showed me a video that scared the life out of me! Long story short I can’t believe I feel a lot better by only doing this! I feel more energetic now! A few months back I would get tired after doing a little work around the house but not anymore! Lesson learned: don’t drink tap water!

  14. Keneth

    Wow! An eye opening post and everyone should care about our liver. I already have a healthy lifestyle but now I am certified a liver lover. Thanks to this post and now I am planning to influence more people about it.

    I detoxed for a few weeks last year. After that I lived on fruit and exercised and got a lot of sun for about 2 months at my vacation home. It was incredible, I have never felt that good in my whole life. I’m going to do it again this summer.

  16. Megan

    Looking at my friends that drink very often and how this will destroy their livers, this detox looks like the best thing for them and I will link them to this page.

    I didn’t realize that the liver was such an important organ and that it controls so much of your body’s other functions. I am going to start a detox system today and see what kind of effects it will have on me.
