"Added to this survival drama, gallstones can harbor quantities of bacteria and viruses, which escape the liver via the secreted bile and affect those parts of the body that are the least protected or already weakened. The thing to keep in mind is that germs do not infect the body unless it requires their help. The intestinal tract needs bile to keep itself neat and clean. Lack of bile in the intestines prevents this from happening. The next best solution to removing harmful waste matter is to employ destructive germs. Gallstones can also lead to other problems in the mouth."

"As mentioned before, gallstones in the liver and gallbladder can cause intestinal congestion and thereby lead to frequent back-flushing of bile and toxins into the stomach, which may injure an ever-increasing number of stomach cells. Antibiotics destroy the natural stomach flora, including those bacteria that normally help to break down damaged cells. Although the antibiotic approach results in a quick relief of symptoms, it also lowers stomach performance permanently, which sets up the body for more severe challenges than just dealing with an ulcer.1 Shortcuts to healing rarely pay off."

"With the rate of renewal of cells in the liver, a new liver is theoretically produced every six weeks. The bony skeleton regenerates every three months. Ninety-eight percent of the atoms throughout the entire body are completely different than a year ago. Through the wondrous processes that deliver nutrients and remove waste, the body is constantly under renovation. The rate of exchange varies from system to system. The mechanisms for repair and rejuvenation differ. Nonetheless, this process continues day after day, from birth to death, to create a new you in every moment."

"Silymarin also is known for its effectiveness in the treatment of alcohol-induced liver disorders. Real improvement of liver function has been attributed to treatment with 420 milligrams a day of silymarin. Double-blind controlled studies measured the liver function of people with mildly acute liver disorders who admitted drinking on a daily basis. Those treated with silymarin showed improvement in their liver function tests more rapidly than those receiving the placebo."

"Jaundice signals some underlying disorder in the liver. Possible causes include hepatitis (a liver infection), types of anemia, malformation of the anatomy of the bile ducts, or a bile system blockage. Anything that interferes with normal liver function may cause jaundice. Jaundice in newborns is usually due to a baby's immature liver, which cannot rapidly process the quantity of bilirubin produced because so many new red blood cells are being formed. Although usually not visible immediately following delivery, most newborns have some degree of jaundice after three or four days."

"When I was twenty-six I came down with mononucleosis, which damaged my liver. Because my liver was impaired, alcohol made me sick, so I stopped drinking. It was a straightforward decision, but it probably saved my life. As with most children of alcoholics, I was a sitting duck for alcoholism. My body chemistry was primed to need alcohol, and had I kept drinking I would have gone from enjoyment to dependence to abuse. Turning to Sugar for Solace But abstinence from alcohol nudged me onto a different path of addiction. Alcohol hadn't hooked me, but sugar, ice cream, pasta, bread and soda did."
- Kathleen DesMaisons, Potatoes Not Prozac: Solutions for Sugar Sensitivity (Get the book.)

"If the level of sugar in your blood drops, your body will turn to the backup sugar supply stored in your liver. Your liver stores about 400 calories worth of sugar at any given time. After this backup supply is used up, you are in trouble. Your body needs more sugar to keep functioning. It tells you to eat. Now! For most people, this system works well. They are not even aware of the changes in their blood sugar level. However, some people are biochemically sugar sensitive. When they eat sugar, their bodies overreact by releasing far more insulin than is needed."

"Ingested material must have a first pass through the liver, and the liver metabolizes and detoxifies compounds before they enter the bloodstream. Since much of the potency of an herb or drug can be neutralized or diluted by the liver, if a compound gets through the liver at all it is often delivered to the bloodstream in a less concentrated form. To achieve a therapeutic dosage, it is thus often necessary to ingest a large amount of the herbal or drug constituent, and with larger dosages there is the increased possibility of toxicity."
- Thomas M. Newmark and Paul Schulick, BEYOND ASPIRIN Nature's Answer To Arthritis, Cancer & Alzheimer's Disease (Get the book.)

"This signals that both the liver and kidneys are congested and unable to filter the blood properly. "Dirty" blood, loaded with toxins or waste products, is heavier and more sluggish than clean blood. The thickened blood slows circulation and reduces oxygen and nutrient supply to the cells and organs, including the eyes. If this condition persists, the cells will deteriorate and inevitably age or die off. The eye and brain cells are especially affected because the blood has to flow against gravity to reach them."

"Diseases of the Mouth Gallstones in the liver and gallbladder are also responsible for most diseases of the mouth. The stones interfere with the digestion and absorption of food, which, in turn, forces waste products meant for elimination to remain in the intestinal tract. The storage of waste in the intestines creates a toxic, anaerobic environment that supports breeding of destructive germs and parasites and undermines preservation of healthy, resilient tissues."

"Nevertheless, the liver's self-repair and cleansing responses will have increased significantly, adding a great deal of effectiveness to this extremely important organ of the body."

"Double-blind controlled studies measured the liver function of people with mildly acute liver disorders who admitted drinking on a daily basis. Those treated with silymarin showed improvement in their liver function tests more rapidly than those receiving the placebo. In other studies, animals pretreated with silymarin who were then exposed to a wide range of known liver toxins had less liver damage than those animals who were not treated with silymarin. Many scientists believe that silymarin offers potential as a chemoprotective agent against a wide range of toxins."

"For instance, even though our liver cells rejuvenate every six weeks, someone diagnosed with liver cancer in July may still have liver cancer in December. That puzzled researchers until they discovered that the DNA holds the codes to cancer. Although new cells are being created all the time, our cells will replicate with a flaw if we have a degenerative pattern in our DNA. It is the same with the emotional patterns encoded in our DNA. Our emotional heritage, inherited from our ancestors, contributes to the patterns, positive and negative, we see repeated over and over again in our lives."

"LIPITOR?has not been shown to prevent heart disease or heart attack. If you take LIPITOR? tell your doctor about any unusual muscle pain or weakness. This could be a sign of serious side effects. It is important to tell your doctor about any medications you are currently taking to avoid possible serious drug interactions..." According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, entitled "Cholesterol and Mortality," after age 50 there is no increased overall death rate associated with high cholesterol."

"A third, important energy cenrer encompasses the digestive system, pancreas, and liver. This is where we store emotion and hold our sense of personal power. When people have problems in this energy center, they often manifest as eating disorders, intestinal disorders, or diseases of the pancreas or liver. The fourth energy center surrounds the heart. This is where we store energies and emotions relating to love, family relationships, and long-term friendships. The heart is also a center for human virtue (honesty, loyalty, trustworthiness, courage, and so forth)."

"Recently, our laboratory found that oral feeding of green tea leaves to rats resulted in enhanced SOD activity in serum and catalase activity in liver and an increased concentration of glutathione in the liver (Lin et al., 1998). We also established that theaflavins and EGCG inhibit xanthine oxidase (XO). They inhibit XO to produce uric acid and also act as scavengers of superoxides. Theaflavin 3,3'-digallate (TF-3) inhibited the superoxide production in HL-60 cells."

"But, as Kandel points out, genes have another function, a transcriptional function, which is the ability of a gene to direct the manufacture of specific proteins in any given cells, the expression of which makes a brain cell a brain cell and a liver cell a liver cell. Although almost every cell of the body has all of the genes that are present in every other cell, in any given cell type only a fraction of genes, perhaps 10 percent to 20 percent, are expressed through the transcriptional function. The other genes are effectively silent."

"A liver cell is a liver cell and a brain cell is a brain cell only because these cell types express different subsets of the total population of genes they possess. The transcriptional function of genes is responsive to environmental factors. Specifically, internal and external stimuli—such as steps in the development of the brain, hormones, stress, learning and social interaction, the prodding of the gill of Aplysia—change how genes are expressed."

"It too should never be taken by women who are pregnant or breast-feeding or by patients with liver or kidney disease. So are there alternatives? Stress and diet may be related to the development of acne. Reducing stress with relaxation techniques or other methods may be helpful. Non-Westernized cultures have lower rates of acne, suggesting that diet may be a factor. There is some evidence that diets high in sugar increase insulin levels and reduce inherent retinoid levels, increasing the risk of acne."

"The body manufactures cholesterol in the liver and in skin cells regardless of whether it is consumed in the diet or not. We do not need to obtain it from food. The body utilizes cholesterol to manufacture steroid hormones and vitamin D. Cholesterol is a component of all cells and is found in large amounts in nerve tissues and the brain. It is also required in various bodily tissue structures, is part of the process of fat digestion, and may at times serve as an antioxidant."

"Smoking, alcohol, diabetes and the overuse of laxatives increase the body's need for Bl2, which can be sourced from meat, liver, sardines, oysters, egg yolk and cheese. Vitamin C Another natural antihistamine (a substance that dampens down the inflammatory reaction), Vitamin C is also a mild antibiotic and is without doubt the most important vitamin for the treatment of respiratory ailments. Vitamin C protects us from colds, flu, sinus and similar complaints. It also appears to prevent asthma—see pages 112-114."
