Six Tips to Take Care of Your Liver and Live a Healthy Lifestyle

by Johnny Delirious

Hepatitis is a disease which causes inflammation of the liver. This disease can occur from a deadly virus, obesity or diabetes – and if gone untreated, can easily turn into cirrhosis. There are also other factors that contribute to unhealthy liver conditions where hepatitis could develop. Such conditions include emotional problems like anger issues, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, bad water consumption and other toxic intake consequences.

But the good news is no one has to continue a lifestyle that will perpetuate an unhealthy liver condition.

Now more than ever, I try to keep my weight down and watch my diet. It’s that simple. Avoid fats like canola oil, lard, most vegetable oils, margarine and any oil that is overheated. Personally, I found following an organic vegan diet during my hepatitis recovery very successful. (If you are in recovery and during high viral load, eliminate meat and fat. After viral load is gone, you may want to go to a high protein, high fat and low carbohydrate diet.) If you have a rigorous lifestyle, incorporating meat in your diet is fine. It’s your choice.

No matter how many things I did on my personal journey, however, I realized that attitude is the determining factor.

Here are some easy tips that will help your liver stay healthy or recover from hepatitis:

Hepatitis C Cured by Johnny DeliriousRelease anger
Work on relieving all anger and resentment issues in your life. These feelings are stored in the liver and your disease will not be resolved until you get rid of them.

Exercise and drink plenty of water 
Exercise and drinking lots of water work hand-in-hand to get your body into high gear, taking action and responding to building your immunity strength. I drink spring water and I structure water for my whole house with the Vortex Turbulator.

I take Primal Defense and milk thistle, which both help the liver detoxify. Milk thistle is not dangerous and it helps the liver regenerate. Its seeds have been used for thousands of years to protect the liver against toxins.

This seems to be one common obstacle to overcome in particular cases where hepatitis is a problem. If you have the disease, the most important thing to understand is there was a reason you contracted the disease in the first place. Come to a resolution and move on to a healthier way of being and forgiveness.

Even once sufferers get on the conventional treatments, quercetin (a flavonoid found in vegetables, fruits, and grains) can enhance the body’s ability to activate its immunity response.

Stop drinking
It goes without saying, for optimum liver health it is necessary to stop drinking alcohol. I don’t know of anyone who recovered from hepatitis that continued to drink. Drinking alcohol excessively can cause a lot of damage to your liver.

Human beings have an in-born desire to continue living, even when facing incredible odds. I used this desire to fuel my determination to beat this disease… and so can you – if you do your research.

Remember: your attitude is the determining factor. I learned this the hard way!

I have had no viral load or antibodies of any type of Hepatitis A, B and C since 1994. All I want to do now is to give other people hope, and information about the right natural healing modalities out there that work. My natural recovery from Hepatitis C was a choice, not a myth.

  1. I have never had to deal with Hepatitis C and I don’t plan on ever getting it. One simple program I follow in keeping a healthy liver is drinking lemon water every morning. I juice 1 organic lemon and add an 8oz. of warm purified water. Do this before breakfast and dinner and your liver will thank you for it.
