How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with Fatty Liver
Want a really good health this year? Read this article, and you can learn how to give yourself a precious gift–a healthier liver.
About 25-30% of adults in the US have NAFLD. Around 6 million children in the US also have NAFLD. And most of these people do not realize that they have NAFLD.
So, what is NAFLD? NAFLD stands for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and it is the most common liver disease in developed countries. Interestingly, people might think liver damage is primarily due to alcohol consumption, but NAFLD does not involve alcohol.
If you had medical testing done, your liver tests might be slightly abnormal, and an ultrasound would show fat deposits in your liver. A word of friendly caution–if you are asymptomatic, you may not feel sick or pain. But that doesn’t mean you have been given a free pass.
When it comes to your liver, anything and everything related to your liver is important. Whether you feel pain or not, if you have a fatty liver, you need to take action. A fatty liver will not heal itself magically. If you broke your leg, it would not heal magically on its own. You would need a cast. You would need to do physical therapy to restrengthen your leg. The same principles apply to a fatty liver.
An unhealthy liver can lead to a fatty liver that can lead to a highly fatty liver that can lead to fibrosis that can lead to cirrhosis. Do you see a pattern here? Something that started out mild became worse, and left untreated, became significantly worse.
How bad could your liver problem really be if you don’t feel any pain? NAFLD can lead to liver failure or liver cancer. Our intent is not to cause you stress or panic. But we feel that telling you the facts about NAFLD can only help you. If you get help now, you are doing your liver and your overall health a huge favor. And you are worth it!
Hopefully, at this point, you are inspired. You make the decision to get help for your liver. But you might run into some obstacles. Like we mentioned, our aim is to tell you the facts. We want you to be prepared because knowledge is power.
Western Medicine does not really have safe medication or treatments for fatty liver. You might be told to change your diet, exercise more, and avoid alcohol at all costs. Doctors might say to you that a fatty liver is not fatal. This is not true for everyone. A fatty liver can mean that you have a fatty pancreas as well. Remember–do not panic. Reading this article shows how strong you are. You are willing to learn about NAFLD. You are eager to see what options you have. You are closer to making important decisions about your health. Kudos to you! And let’s keep going…
Most things in life are more connected than we might think.
A sharp increase in NAFLD in the US can be due to:
- Unhealthy eating. People in the US eat a lot of processed, highly caffeinated, highly sugared, high fructose corn syrup foods.
- Toxic chemicals in the environment (layers of smog do not help us)
- A lack of friendly intestinal flora (good bacteria) in the gut
- Some medications can promote NAFLD
- Rapid weight loss or erratic weight gain-loss
- Metabolic acidosis or what we call “whole-body” acidity
Some people do not show symptoms of having a fatty liver, especially in the beginning stages of NAFLD. If you have the following symptoms, you might want to consult your doctor. Please note that these symptoms are a bit vague and can apply to other health issues, but early detection is literally a lifesaver.
- Are you tired throughout the day or running out of energy faster than usual? This could be fatigue.
- Are you not hungry? Don’t really care what you eat? Loss of appetite
- Is your tummy upset, or you have a full sensation in your stomach? This could be nausea or stomach fullness
- Are you having trouble concentrating or focusing? Do you feel like you are in a mental fog and it’s hard to make decisions? This could be confusion or impaired judgment
- Specifically, do you feel achy in the upper right side of the abdomen?
- Do you have a swollen abdomen or stomach? This could be abdominal obesity
- Do you have varicose veins or congested veins? If congested veins are around the liver area, this is a symptom.
Without prompt help and an experienced practitioner, fatty deposits in the liver will adversely affect the liver’s circulation. The fat deposits block circulation, and this blocking in the liver can lead to inflammation that is called hepatitis. A more serious form of NAFLD is NASH, which stands for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. NASH is the name for the swelling and damage to the liver, which ultimately leads to the death of liver cells. When liver cells die, there is a lot of scarring. This is referred to as liver cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is irreversible and can lead to liver cancer and liver failure. Knowing what these terms are can help you. If your doctor uses this terminology with you, you are already in the know because you have taken the first step in taking care of yourself-reading this article and informing yourself.
Since NAFLD is a multi-system disease, then NASH is also a multi-system disease. NAFLD and NASH can exist with other illnesses such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, kidney disease, different types of cancer, and type 2 diabetes. The liver’s work affects the entire body, so if it is not working properly, then other parts of your body could not be working properly as well.
The most accepted theory behind fatty liver disease is its connection with Metabolic Syndrome.
Insulin resistance causes metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is abdominal obesity, high blood triglycerides and fatty acids, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, and low HDL cholesterol. Fat (fatty acids, triglycerides) accumulates in liver cells. Fat in liver cells causes inflammation and injure to liver tissue.
In Biotherapy, we strongly believe that whole body acidity is one of the main factors of the insulin resistance. Please read more about about possible role of Metabolic Acidosis in development Metabolic Syndrome, Overweight and Diabetes. in Chapter 16 of our ebook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”. Part 1.

One of complementary approaches to improve liver health is the time proven and scientifically researched Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water (KVHMW) made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt. It is one of the very important component of the Fatty Liver Kit. Used for centuries by generations of European, Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water made from the Genuine Karlovy Vary Thermal Spring Salt decreases the level of inner toxicity of the body, supplies more than 40 vital electrolytes (potassium, calcium, magnesium, etc.) and microelements (zinc, cobalt, iron, chromium, etc), normalizes acid/alkaline balance, helps eliminate intestinal parasites and their eggs, and improves the function of the intestines, kidneys, and liver, the most important organs responsible for toxin removal and body waste. For More than 500 years Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water has been the most popular in Europe natural approaches to the liver disorders. It may also naturally help heal gastrointestinal disorders, immune system disorders, skin problems, alcohol, drug addictions, and promote weight management as well. The Karlovy Vary Mineral Water is also ideal for health maintenance.* The main actions of KVHMW against Fatty Liver are to supply the liver with life essential minerals and microelements to promote microcirculation of blood, lymph, and bile to increase overall detoxification. The KVHMW also decreases the tissue and cells’ acidosis by normalizing the acid-alkaline balance, promoting the secretion and elimination of bile, and improving whole digestive process. Fatty Liver is acidic condition.
European naturopathic doctors help the patients in the first stages of fatty liver to delay possible complications, such as cirrhosis or a liver transplant. Their advice is to stop drinking alcohol, improve the diet, exercise, and drink Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water (KVHMW).
A. KVHMW is very beneficial remedy for fatty liver because:

Using the “healing power of food”, we can give you a customized diet plan that was developed in European naturopathic clinics. There is no effective healing process for liver disorders without a special diet and proper food combining.
We use our own method of acupuncture based on more than 25-years of experience of healing liver disorders with Chinese body, Russian ear lobe, Japanese scalp and Korean hand-foot styles of acupuncture treatment. Needles, magnets, pressure, heat and electro stimulation of special points and zones can help alleviate symptoms of Fatty Liver, such as fatigue, abdominal pain, depression, craving for sugar, or alcohol, pain, skin rashes, ascitis and other physical discomforts, and promote improvement of lab tests and weight loss.
Whole body cleansing is the very important part of healing of the liver disorders, an especially Fatty Liver and loosing weight.
Liver inflammation diminishes the ability of liver cells to detoxify the toxins traveling to the liver from the intestines and colon. These toxins pass by the liver and travel to the blood system causing fatigue, depression, and even coma. People with liver diseases usually have low immunity levels and cannot resist developing opportunistic infections such as viruses, microbes, yeast and parasites. This causes additional ways for toxicity and may lead to more deterioration of liver cells. Colon health has a direct effect on the liver.
Restoration of friendly intestinal flora is extremely beneficial for people with Fatty Liver and for people on the weight loss program. It improves the digestion, immunity, alleviates inner toxicity.
