Has anyone had swelling of the liver and kidneys?
Over the last 10 weeks my liver has been swelling now it looks like my kidneys are doing it to. I thought if I back off on treatment it would get better but I caught the flu and stopped treatment for 2 weeks and it's worse. It causes my ribs and low spin to be sore.
Thank you for your time and help
I'd urge you to purchase a few bottles of activated charcoal. Taken on an empty stomach, it can assume some of the detox tasks your liver is too ill to perform right now. Take 15 caps 2x daily. Also, drink 8oz of purified water each hour. Like someone said, silymarin (in Milk Thistle) has been shown to protect the liver from some toxins. Also, about
8oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice first thing in the morning is said to help the liver detox itself. Raw garlic is another good detoxifier due to it's potent sulfur content.
One thing you may not have heard of is cold pressed caster oil packs applied directly to the liver. They do work. I've used them. Buy a yard of undyed cotton flannel, soak it in the cold pressed caster oil, wring it out, and place it on the liver. Cover with a big sheet of plastic wrap and cover that with a heating pad. Once you feel the heat on your skin (through the cotton flannel), keep it on for 1.5 hours. It is said that cold pressed caster oil used in this fashion can draw accumulated toxins from your liver as deeply as 4 inches. You should be doing this everyday until your tenderness totally subsides. Wash your flannel thoroughly after each use to avoid recontaminating yourself.
You really need to consider unitizing all of these methods since your liver is so ill right now. And NO antibiotics right now.
