Liver and Mood

Posted by PaulC [1041.535] on February 14, 2004 at 11:14:11:

Liver is one of those diagnoses that I wonder about. Most
every complaint one brings to a Chinese practitioner ends up
with a diagnosis of liver.
Now I know and respect Shape`s position, but I am wondering
about some other board members thoughts.
Yes, the theory of liver problems seems sound...of course
if it was not working properly lots of symptoms could arise.
Has anyone here actually seen improvements in mood that
they linked directly to liver cleanses, herbs etc
Fyi I have started a range of liver therapies this week
after a "mildly off" GSDL liver detox report...with Phase One
being too fast for Phase Two. I am glad I held off on the
liver cleanses because now I can target the specific pathway.

Thanks Steve,

Actually, that`s one of my main sources of info and
I am using their recommendations on supps.

I guess I`d really like to hear a testimonial like
your testimonials on the board. Couldn`t find much in the
archives.

Hi Steve. You said that you pass these "chunks of fat" during coffee enemas, right? Do they resemble the soft green stones made of fat & bile that we pass during the liver flushes, or are they something else? I too am recovering from fatty liver, thus my interest. I do coffee enemas but never experienced anything like that.

No they look like fat..A grey color..I have fished them out ( gross I know ) and they feel like rubber..I have emailed Dr. Cabot to see how long it will take to clean my liver..Been doing this ( coffee enemas ) for a year and still passing fat, but not as many and they are smaller in size..I have not recieved an answer..Do you hold the coffee for 12 to 15 minutes?

There is a Hepatic Psychosis that can happen when the
liver isn't functioning right.

Yes, I hold it at least 12 minutes, 20 if possible. I do two in a row. I think you have some unusual results from a coffee enema! Are you also taking the Livatone or other liver support formulas? Let us know what you hear from Dr. Cabot.

Been a Long time since I read about it but Think that
when the liver is off, it releases enzymes that affect
brain chemestry. It explained why I would explode over
simple problems that made life a little harder.

Is it possible that you would get "weird"/different results because you don't have a gallbladder?

Has she answered...I exchanged some interesting emails
with her a few months back. She was not, btw a big proponent
of heavy duty liver flushes but preferred a series of milder
ones.

Jane,

Look up hepatic coma in any medical text and you will see that prior to the onset of coma (liver failure) the main symptoms are related to brain function.

Psychosis is just an earlier stage of this continuum and neurosis is an earlier one yet. The best way to see if this is a contributing factor is to greatly improve the liver function and see if it helps the mental condition (liver archives). Let us know what you learn.

This is not to say that ALL brain dysfunction is due to liver but some certainly is. Since improving liver function cannot do anything but good for any individual.......... "First, do no harm!"

Let us know what you learn.

Walt

Were the milder ones that she recommended the type where you take some olive oil every day? (very curious)
