A lesion on the liver is a sign of serious liver damage and may mean that the person in question is suffering from liver disease, a degenerative condition that can result in liver failure and death. Fortunately, the liver is an organ that can repair and regenerate itself, and by going on a strict diet, avoiding toxic substances and using herbal remedies you have a good chance of healing a liver lesion and reversing any damage.
Things You'll Need
Quit drinking. If you drink alcohol you are exposing your liver to a substance that slows it down and can cause damage.
Take bupleurum pills. Go to a health-food store or Chinese herb shop and purchase a package of high-quality, high-potency bupleurum supplements.
Take turkey tail mushroom supplements. Buy high-quality supplements, manufactured by a reputable company, at a health-food store.
Cut out fatty foods. Don’t eat high-animal-fat foods that can slow down liver function and be toxic in their own right. Substitute high-quality vegetable oils like olive, coconut and flaxseed oils, which are easier for your body to process and have high-antioxidant profiles that are good for the liver.
Go vegetarian. While you are following your protocol to dissolve your liver lesion, eat only organic vegetable products. Include plenty of leafy green vegetables, like spinach, which contain chlorophyll and are good for liver function.
Get plenty of rest. While you are on this protocol it is important to get a full night’s sleep, as the liver regenerates while you are asleep.
