How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic Can Help People with Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis.
There is a good chance that if you clicked on this article, it is because you need this information on non-pharmaceutical treatments for liver fibrosis or early stage of liver cirrhosis.
Americans, as is the whole world, are now very familiar with a pandemic due to COVID-19. Pandemics are no joke, and neither are epidemics. Epidemics are diseases that are actively spreading in society. Liver disease is becoming close to being called an epidemic in the United States.
More than 90 million Americans have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). To give you an idea of how serious this is, 90 million is about the population of California, Texas, and Florida…combined.
Many of those with NAFLD or NASH do not show symptoms or feel pain, so they are not aware that they have a liver illness. When you get a paper cut and don’t feel it, you will survive—it’s not a big deal. However, when you have a liver illness and don’t know, it can be seriously detrimental to your health.
Since many people are asymptomatic, and there aren’t any real and safe medications to treat NAFLD or NASH, not much attention is given to them.
For example, we know quite a lot about diabetes because there are specific medications that exist. We see pharmaceutical ads on TV and the Internet; we have friends or family on diabetic medications. There are pumps, patches, pills, shots, and support groups.
According to the CDC, there are 34.2 million people in the US with diabetes. Liver disease affects almost 3 times more people in the US than diabetes, yet how much does the average person in the US know about NAFLD or NASH?
If anyone in the US has heard of chronic liver disease, most likely they have heard of cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is the final stage of liver disease. There is no longer enough healthy tissue in the liver for the liver to perform its essential functions; it can’t do the metabolic or detoxifying processes that keeps the body going. Liver cells are destroyed, and scar tissue ensues in the liver.
Right after heart disease and cancer, liver cirrhosis is the third most common cause of death among people aged 45 to 65. Currently, about 2% of the Western population has cirrhosis.
Of some comfort, there are stages of cirrhosis; mild cirrhosis is the beginning stage. Many people in this first stage do not show symptoms and can live quite well for years. If they do have liver function testing done, the results would probably come back normal. You might wonder how a liver test could come back normal if someone has cirrhosis. This is an excellent question to ask. The liver only needs to have 35% of its cells functioning to be able to do its main jobs. Therefore, a liver functioning test will come back normal if, in fact, the liver is functioning.
But the common tests do not indicate that the health of your liver is going in a negative direction. And once a person hits the final stage of cirrhosis, the outcome can be fatal, and conventional medicines treatments are limited.If your doctor mentions liver fibrosis or the beginning of liver cirrhosis, this is a serious alert. Do not take it lightly. The stages of cirrhosis develop over time. Liver cirrhosis is a chronic disease; therefore, much more can be done for a person who has mild cirrhosis than for a person in the last stage.
We are including a list of clinical symptoms of liver cirrhosis. If you have these symptoms and would like to discuss your health with an experienced professional, Biotherapy Clinic works with persons using complementary and alternative medicines. These have proven to help people, especially those in the beginning stages of cirrhosis.

There are effective ways to repair and regenerate the liver. Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic’s natural treatments can stop or even reverse fat accumulation in the liver and reduce the inflammation and scarring of liver tissue. The earlier treatment starts, the better, longer, and more profound the results will be.
We have comprehensive, customized, non-pharmaceutical healing programs for liver fibrosis and early stages of liver cirrhosis. Some of what we do is listed below:
The liver can suffer from dysbiosis.-Dysbiosis is the imbalance of healthy versus unhealthy bacteria in the gut. Beneficial intestinal bacteria made up of microbiota and microbiome help the body digest food, keep the immune system up and running, maintain hormonal balance, and control harmful bacteria, yeast, and parasites from taking over the small and large intestines.
Things that can decrease the amount of beneficial intestinal bacteria are antibiotics, medications like stomach-acid suppressants and steroids, processed foods, drinking alcohol, stress, age, and recreational drugs.
Thus, dysbiosis is a lack of beneficial bacteria and the loss of their health benefits. This imbalance leads to many diseases in the gastrointestinal tract and the entire body. People can develop leaky gut syndrome, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), internal toxicity, whole-body acidity, and malnutrition.
Biotherapy Clinic’s Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program is a significant part of the healing of chronic liver disease. Since the gut is so porous, whatever unhealthy agent that enters the gut ends up in the liver. Biotoxins, chemicals, environmental toxins, heavy metals, and alcohol end up in the liver. If these contaminants stay in the liver, then chronic liver disease like cirrhosis is in progress.
Biotherapy’s Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program is about removing toxins from the gut. This program puts the body back into balance. The liver is not being beaten up daily by more and more toxins entering it, but rather the liver has a chance to heal. It can start functioning better again.
The restoration of friendly intestinal flora is a complicated process that cannot be achieved by quick fixes like eating yogurt or low-quality probiotics. Candida-yeast creates biofilm-covered colonies in the large intestine. This coating blocks good bacteria from getting in and develop colonies. This biofilm needs to be removed from the large intestine and flushed out of the body. This is a significant change for your body. Your body did not get this way overnight, nor will it be fixed overnight, but sticking with the program can bring positive, healthy change.
A part of Biotherapy Clinic’s Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program is colon hydrotherapy. Clean and purified water gently cleanses the colon and literally flushes out unhealthy biofilm layers, Candida-yeast, toxins, parasites, and biotoxins.
Biotherapy’s natural healing program for chronic liver disorders has existed for years because it works. Our patients have seen positive changes in their health. They have improved digestion, less constipation, more regular bowel movements, a better mood, fewer colds and coughs, increased energy, more concentration, and brain clarity.
And medical tests confirm their results.
Our clients who have imaging and blood testing after participating in our Whole-Body Cleansing anti-Candida program show better overall health and better liver functioning.
We would not be doing our jobs if we didn’t mention whole-body acidity. This condition also greatly affects those with liver disease.
Whole-body acidity or metabolic acidosis is a modern-day illness, and, like dysbiosis, it deals with a fundamental imbalance in the body.
Whole-body acidity is when the acid-alkaline balance in the body is too acidic. The liver has a hard time working in an acidic environment because it is an alkaline gland. An excessively acidic environment can lead to many health issues like gallbladder and kidney stones, gout, and type 2 diabetes. Since this article is on the liver, we will focus on how whole-body acidity affects the liver, but we did want to mention how body acidity can affect a person in so many different ways.
Whole-body acidity makes the fluids in the body acidic. Bile and pancreatic juice, which are normally alkaline, become too acidic. This acidity irritates not only the pancreas but the liver as well, causing inflammation and scarring.
Like dysbiosis, whole-body acidity needs to be treated. Your liver can’t fight toxins and acidity every day if it is too sick. Natural, alternative medicinal treatments can be very helpful in getting an alkaline-acid balance back in the body. You do not need the complex tests to figure out you are acidic or not. The measure of saliva and urine pH by a litmus paper works as a window inside your body. If your pH measurements are less than 6.6, you have whole-body acidity; therefore, it calls for the actions.
At Biotherapy Clinic, we have found that the following have successfully helped our patients with chronic liver disorders.
- Using the healing power of food, Biotherapy has healing food consultations derived from European naturopathic clinics. You cannot heal your liver without healing foods. Eating alkaline-forming foods is vital. If your body needs to be less acidic, then eating foods that are alkaline helps get the body back to where it needs to be.
- Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium can neutralize acidity and help restore the minerals that your liver needs.
- Drinking Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water. (See below.)
- Chronic liver disease greatly affects digestion. It can be challenging to absorb fats, proteins, folic acid, and vitamins. Biotherapy B 12 Active is a methyl form of cobalamin and folic acid that is easily absorbed under the tongue.
- Biotherapy’s Sunshine D Plus can help the body have enough vitamin D in the blood system to reduce inflammation and scarring of the liver.
There are various herbs, supplements, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, vitamins that have liver-protective properties. They are widely used all over the world, and many medical records support their use. Biotherapy supplements are manufactured in the United States with toxicity and quality control. Some of them are unique and were formulated by Peter Melamed, Ph.D. from the 80s. Some of the popular Biotherapy’s products are: Biotherapy Complete Probiotics, Biotherapy Damp Water Formula, Biotherapy Yin Formula, Biotherapy Selenium, Biotherapy Complete Enzymes, Biotherapy Berberine, Biotherapy Olive Leaf Extract, Biotherapy Ester C, Biotherapy MSM, and more.
If you have a chronic liver disease, our goal at Biotherapy is to help you by maintaining the stage that you are in. We do not want you to progress towards liver failure. If you are in the mild stage, we keep you in the mild stage. If you are more advanced with a chronic liver disease, we will deal with the complications that come with that stage and slow down the decay. If you are a candidate for a liver transplant and waiting for a liver, we can help you maintain until your liver transplant occurs.
At Biotherapy, we also have the following supplements and treatments that can help you and your liver. Any chronic illness like cirrhosis can cause daily stress and strain your nerves.
Biotherapy’s Yin Formula is a highly effective herbal remedy that can relieve stress, insomnia, nervous tension, anxiety, restlessness, and irritability. Many of the clinically tested ingredients in this herbal formula have been shown to relieve pain, cramps, and spasms, maintain mental balance, relax the body, and strengthen the nervous and immune systems. It also helps reduce cravings for sugar, tobacco, and alcohol.
Liver Regeneration Kit can naturally help people who are in the liver fibrosis or early stage of cirrhosis, and suffer from bloating and gas, memory loss, and chronic fatigue.
This Kit includes:
- Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water
- Biotherapy Damp Water Formula
- Biotherapy B12 Active
- Biotherapy Milk Thistle Max
- Super Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Zinc Caps
There are 2 things that have such an impact on people with chronic liver disease that we are going more into depth on them—Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water and acupuncture.
Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water (KVHMW) is made at home from the genuine thermal spring salt that is produced in the Czech Republic. And this healing water has been around for centuries. Over 200 years ago, European doctors regularly prescribed KVHMW to their patients. With hundreds of years to medically test, evaluate and study, KVHMW has been extensively researched.
What makes KVHMW unique and effective is its makeup. It has 40 electrolytes, trace elements, minerals, and bicarbonate—precisely what the body needs. KVHMW can reduce the toxicity level in the body by helping toxins exit the body. This healing water also improves the status of healthy bacteria in the intestines. KVHMW supports liver functioning, which means that the liver is getting help to heal.
Everything naturally in KVHMW helps promote the microcirculation of blood, lymph, and bile within the liver. KVHMW helps the entire body perform better. Digestion is improved; alkaline glands (liver and pancreas) are working better because they are more alkaline and less acidic; tissue and cell acidosis is lessened because they, too, are less acidic.
People with liver issues have seen improvement by using a KVHMW.
Another effective natural treatment is acupuncture. Every year, 14 million Americans are now using or trying acupuncture. Acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries, and it helps with the gallbladder, the liver, the pancreas, headaches, back pain, digestive illnesses, insomnia, and stress.
You can find people across the world using acupuncture now because it works. Most people are familiar with the Chinese method, but the Korean SuJok, the Russian earlobe, and the Japanese scalp methods of acupuncture also exist. We have used all these methods for 40 years.
For some, just the mention of the word “needle” sends them running, but our clinic acupuncture session is typically soothing, restoring, tranquil, and energizing. Many people do not want their acupuncture session to end because they feel good while the needles are working. Clinical studies prove that acupuncture helps with indigestion, gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pains, and cramps. We will focus on the liver, but if you wish to read more about how extensive acupuncture is, please visit our website, read our books, or contact us.
When certain acupuncture points are stimulated, the immune system can be given a boost. If you have chronic liver disease, your immune system needs a boost. Your digestion can be weakened, and acupuncture can help that as well. Chronic illness involves toxic emotions like anxiety or panic attacks, irritability, depression, and self-doubt.
Toxins, whether they are biochemical or emotional, are not helping a person with chronic liver disease. Acupuncture reduces anxiety and depression. After acupuncture, your sleep improves as well as your mood. You can move from negative self-talk to affirming self-talk that encourages you to keep working on your health.
At Biotherapy, we use all the tools and experience we have to help our patients, and we customize a treatment plan for each patient. If a patient responds well to supplements and acupuncture, we aid them with that. If a patient needs hypnosis and colon hydrotherapy, we aid them with those healing options. We will help you and your liver.
