Acupuncture for Controlling or Eliminating Fatty Liver

There are quite few patients came to our clinic with complaint about fatty liver disease. Besides the symptoms that are mentioned above they complained of strong or annoying achy pain in the right hypochondriac area – the right side of the abdomen just below the rib cage. This is the area related to the location of the liver. Some of them have been also suffering from different digestive problems and even autoimmune disease like ulcerative colitis for many years prior being diagnosed with fatty liver disease.

During thorough Japanese medical diagnosis, the organs and systems involved have been found and many questions about their lifestyle and eating habits and choices answered. Besides the therapeutic protocols application that restore the balance of the organs and systems involved, in Japanese medicine there is an acupuncture protocol, the combination of acupuncture points that resolves the main health problem, the fatty liver disease.

You should know that when you experience pain or ache of any kind, it relates to having inflammation in the body. In this particular case, the inflammation is in the liver. As a result of the proper acupuncture treatment, the liver starts function normal way and the pain disappears. We also advise our patient of how to make proper choices in order to change lifestyle and improve eating habits.

We must say that often our patients who are convinced that they have healthy diet, actually are mistaken. They eat healthy foods but consume too many different kinds of foods or ingredients during one meal. We suggest to limit the number of different foods down to 3-4 ingredients in one meal. This will lessen the pressure on liver, stomach and pancreatic gland and will result in easier digestion that will benefit the organs mentioned above.

Often times we also prescribe the effective patent TCM herbal formula to assist the liver function and condition in order to say good by to fatty liver disease. In a long run, this formula in a very small dosage will support liver and healthy digestion.

Clinical Relevance

Acupuncture helps you to improve liver function, control fatty liver disease and feel much better. The main organs that are involved in having fatty liver disease are liver and pancreatic gland (chapter spleen). How to keep liver healthy you can learn by reading pages 83-93, spleen on pages 95-107 in my book, Your MindBody Alliance & The Truth About Acupuncture.

Our clinical experience shows that people who are not educated in anatomy and physiology are not aware of how to preserve their health. The lack of knowledge and understanding how mind and body correlate leads people to feel out of control over their own health. Reading this book everyone becomes knowledgeable enough to withstand any body health problem and preserve one’s health.
