When the human liver is under any kind of stress/distress, and especially during specific liver disease, such as cirrhosis or hepatitis, it is IMPORTANT to watch the diet closely. Always pay close attention to the amount of water intake, daily, use the water-cure protocol formula found in this blog. Without water or water deficiency, the liver will not be able to metabolize fat and toxin into water solubles to be excreted from the human body. Too much oil and fat, especially when processed or cooked, is hard on the human liver. The best oil is olive oil - avoid margarine and animal fat.

Red meat is also hard on the human liver, as are drugs of any sort, alcohol, and cigarette smoking.
Avoid processed foods in general, and focus instead on whole, fresh vegetable (lightly steamed), whole grains, and slightly sprouted, cooked legumes (such as aduki beans). At least one serving of vital green leaft vegetables a day, such as collards, Swiss chard, or beet greens , is highly desirable.
