artichoke basal leaves collected while yellow have some interesting studies connected to them and cirrhosis
I have noted your skepticism regarding plants and minerals as medicine...but a little research in the right places yields results. just
When you drink alcohol in excess it puts your liver into repair mode. Alcohol is metabolized into a poison, everything that isn't 'vital' like heart,
lungs, brain, etc. is put first and every other organ is put on hold until the ethanol is filtered out of the system. The main filters are liver and
What happens is that the liver is to busy filtering out the poison, plus what ever unhealthy stuff a typical alcoholic eats throughout the day, and
stops the processing of fats, which builds up because it's to busy processing the poison.
The liver does not like fat, at all, and when it's over loaded it will store the fat to process for another time, but in doing so it also creates scar
tissue, if you repeat this day in and out, even consuming more than 4, 5% beers a day will cause a build up of fat, an eventually it will scar.
The only way to get rid of this is to stop drinking. Period. Herbal remedies will not fix it, life style changes do.
