Fatty Liver (maybe)

Hi, I think I may have a fatty liver but not sure.

I had my gall bladder removed in 1995 and have suffered from a pain in my right upper side just under my rib cage ever since. It is particularly bad in the mornings, I feel very ill every morning until I get out of bed and start to move around. I have quie a healthy diet although I do not eat a lot of meat I tend to subsitute this with cheese which I know is not a good thing and try to limit it. Also, Ihave been a bit of a wine drinker ( a drink every night with my mealmaybe 2-3 glasses)but I haven't had a drink for 3 weeks now and do feel a lot better so I will not be going back to that. A year after having my gall bladder removed I asked my doctor for a scan on my GB as the pain felt like a burning inflamed pain and I thought I had an infection but he said it was OK so Ihave never dared to go back and ask about my liver. I have been taking milk thistle for 2 months which is making me feel better. I know if I do have 1 glass of wine I will feel OK but anymore and I feel very ill in the mornings, a feeling of being hung over even after 2 glasses, I don't think my liver can digest it. Any help or suggestions would be very helpful.I am 50 years old and I do some exercise 4-5 times a week but my stomach is very large (which I hate)Many thanks.

It is very difficult to comment without testing you however from what you have said I would consider:

* if you are feeling ill in the mornings you could be dehydrated.  Make sure you are drinking at least 2 litres of plain still water each day AWAY from meals.  It will take a while to get into your cells and initially you may pee for England....imagine a dry plant that you water, all the water drips down the sides and doesnt absorb until the plant gets moister. 

* a detox of your system - go to a kinesiologist to test which is best for you

* You may also have some food sensitivities - again a Kinesiologist can help with this.   Both these latter 2 items could help with larger tummy.

* I never discourage anyone from visiting their Doctor and if you are really worried about your liver I would actually urge you to see a GP.  At least if they say nothing is wrong you can try other natural remedies.

Good luck

PS - In Chinese philosophy and medicine, the Gall Bladder and Liver are connected emotionally with feelings of anger.  You may want to reflect to see if this resonates with you at all.... I would still advise a GP visit to be sure first.

At our center we approach this with kinisiology to test for food allergies ( NAET), dietary coaching, and supplements. There are many emotions tied to the liver and GB that could be playing a role also.
