Liver/Spleen Stagnation

The natural remedies on this website are never intended as an alternative to medical advice from your doctor or other professional healthcare provider.

Asia has for centuries used the tongue as a guide to organ health and the flow of “Qi” or “Chi”, which is the life force displayed by all living beings.   As the liver becomes more and more compromised it is reflected in the tongue.  Cracks and crevices are present on the tongue.  I had a large, deep crevice down the middle of my tongue that prevented me from eating anything spicy for years.  After I killed the Hep C it took 8 years for that crevice to close!  These cracks and crevices run deep and really hurt when you eat spicy food.

Some of the problems with having Hepatitis C is that the Liver and Spleen are affected and as time goes on the Liver begins to become cirrhotic.  This demise of the liver is displayed in many areas of the body.  Symptoms include:

    • Tenderness in rib cage or anywhere along the sides of your body
    • Nausea
    • Premenstrual lability
    • Irritability or frustration
    • Swollen breasts and
    • Swollen abdomen
    • Depression and mood swings

To remedy fatigue caused by Liver Qi Stagnation and to sedate the liver, eat foods that move Stagnant Qi and motivate stuck energy such as:

    • Chicken livers
    • Kelp
    • Nori
    • Eggplant
    • Basil
    • Bay leaf
    • Beets
    • Black pepper
    • Coconut milk
    • Ginger
    • Garlic
    • Peaches
    • Scallion
    • Rosemary
    • Saffron
    • Spicy foods in small amounts motivate the Qi, but excessive use of spices creates more stagnation.

No: alcohol, fatty foods, fried foods, food additives, and overindulgence in sweets, chicken, turkey or heavy read meat

This creates another problem because with Hep C your internal body becomes too hot and moist and this is an indication of Spleen Qi deficiency.  Symptoms include a hot and heavy feeling, fever, nausea, costal or abdominal pain, labored breathing and diarrhea.  Your diet should contain the following:

    • Garlic
    • Turmeric
    • Grains and legumes
    • Cooked vegetables
    • White meats – not more than twelve ounces a week
    • Occasional salad

No: Red meat, raw vegetables, fruit juices and dairy products.

To your greatest success~!
