I wanted to talk to you about Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).
This is a diagnosis I saw often while working in the emergency department for over 20 years. It wasn’t typically something that they came for, but it would be found incidentally. It became more and more common as years went on. There’s a good reason for that. It goes to the underlying root cause being the most important part to fixing this.
NAFLD is similar to what we used to call Alcoholic Cirrhosis. We called it that because it was typically caused from one’s overuse of alcohol. But now people are being impacted by this same type of liver disease while being non-drinkers. Part of the underlying cause is metabolic in nature. It goes to metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, as well as toxicity issues.
Liver is the major detoxifying organ in our body. When we’re exposed to environmental toxins, that puts a heavy burden on our liver. At some point it will begin to malfunction. We begin to store our toxins in our fat cells.
What can you do if you’ve been diagnosed with this?
The most important thing is figuring out the root cause for you to have developed this diagnosis. Getting to the root cause is where you can find a powerful intervention.
What’s the best way to do that?
The best way is to see a functional medicine practitioner who understands the importance of getting a full and complete history of your health. Every person who is diagnosed with this has a different underlying root cause than the next person. That’s why it’s so important to get an individualized look and approach from a functional medicine practitioner.
If this is something that speaks to you or someone you know, please understand that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. You need to have an individualized look at your underlying root cause.
