The holistic healing of fatty liver disease, often called hepatic lipidosis, is likely to give the deepest and most thorough healing. It is never enough just to suppress the symptoms, so you think the problem has gone away. The cause and then the healing needs to be addressed.
Hepatic lipidosis is the name given to the feline or canine variety, whereas the name fatty liver, or steatosis, seems to serve the human variety well. The condition is where there are fatty deposits in the liver, and the function of the liver is compromised.
The Causes of A Fatty Liver Or Hepatic Lipidosis
Before jumping into dealing with this problem, it’s important to understand where it comes from. Causes should always be examined before healing begins, because by simply removing the cause can be healing enough.
The name suggests one of the causes, particularly in the feline and canine cases. To deposit fat in the body, it has to come from somewhere. And sure enough, commercial cat and dog food is high in fat. They are also high in totally unsuitable foods for the species, which helps to compromise the immune system, making natural healing difficult.
Obese cats are particularly prone to this condition. Cats can only ever become obese when overfed commercial cat food, which is so damaging to their overall health. Dry cat food is the worst of a bad lot.
Fatty liver disease, FLD, in humans has the same cause, ie a diet high in fat, especially animal fat. However, it can also be caused by a high consumption of alcohol.
The ketogenic diet is likely to give you a fatty liver, as it’s a high fat diet.
For both the human model and the non-human model, medical drugs are also high on the list of causes. Medical and veterinary drugs are unnatural. Anything unnatural has to be processed by the liver, causing it extra work on top of what it already has to do.
For everyone, another cause is the high toxic level found in non-organic food, which most people eat and most animals are fed.
When you add all this together in anyone who is already struggling with poor health, something has to give.
The only medical solutions are more drugs, which was one of the causes. Go figure…
As if that’s not enough, when you don’t deal with the cause of this condition, it can lead to heart conditions.
Holistic Healing of Fatty Liver or Hepatic Lipidosis
The first thing to do is to address the diet. The diet is king. But it must be a species specific diet. In other words, it needs to be the diet the species evolved on. The perfect diet for us humans is a high carbohydrate diet. Just look at our teeth – they are grinding teeth for grinding up tough cellulose before swallowing.
In other words, we humans are at the herbivore end of the omnivore scale.
The diet cats and dogs evolved on is raw meat and bones – again you only have to look at their teeth which are spikey to tear meat from the bone and then to crunch the bones. Cats are true carnivores and dogs are at the carnivore end of the omnivore scale.
In other words, turn the tables so your cat or dog eats the steak and you eat the high carbohydrates that come with commercial pet food.
Just addressing the diet to good quality, balanced diets for the species can be the complete answer to the healing of hepatic lipidosis or fatty liver disease.
Important though the diet is, some will inevitably need extra help. And the most effective healing of fatty liver is from good homeopathic treatment that involves the whole of you, or cat, dog, whoever.
