Ten Acidic Signs That Your Liver is Toxic and Sick!

liver-disease-s1a-did-you-knowLiver disease is any disturbance of liver function that causes illness. The liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body and should it become dis-eased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body.  Liver dis-ease is also referred to as hepatic dis-ease.

Liver dis-ease is a broad term that covers all the potential problems that cause the liver to fail to perform its designated functions. Usually, more than 75% or three-quarters of liver tissue needs to be affected before a decrease in function occurs.

The liver is the largest solid organ in the body; and is also considered a gland because among its many functions, it makes and secretes an alkaline substance called bile. The liver is located in the upper right portion of the abdomen protected by the rib cage. It has two main lobes that are made up of tiny lobules. The liver cells have two different sources of blood supply. The hepatic artery supplies oxygen rich blood that is pumped from the heart, while the portal vein supplies alkalizing minerals from the large intestine and the spleen.

Normally, veins return blood from the body to the heart, but the portal vein allows alkaline minerals from the large intestines to enter the liver for “detoxification” and filtering prior to entering the general circulation. The portal vein also efficiently delivers minerals and fats that liver cells need to produce the proteins, cholesterol, and electrons required for normal body activities.

There are several early signs of  an acidic liver to understand in order to protect the liver and its many functions from sickness and dis-ease.
Without a fully functioning liver,  your health and wellbeing will be compromised.  Fortunately your liver is capable of repairing and renewing itself every six weeks.  Understanding the following acidic liver conditions and spotting them early,  will help to prevent and/or reverse a serious life-threatening degenerative live dis-ease.


Warning Sign # 1 – Skin discoloration – Jaundice

One of the early signs of excess liver acidity and the beginning of liver dis-ease is the liver’s inability to filter out all of the dietary and/or metabolic toxins from the blood.  With a build-up of toxins this may also lead to a build-up of Bilirubin which is a breakdown product of the blood.  The breakdown of the blood which increases bilirubin is caused by an acidic lifestyle, diet, congested liver and gallbladder and constipation of the elimination organs,  The body and specifically the gallbladder uses bile  to help alkalize the food ingested coming out of the stomach.  When the body cannot evacuate Bilirubin from the liver/gallbladder and blood via the bowels, it will accumulate in the bloodstream and results in the skin taking on a yellowish hue.  This yellowing can also affect the fingernails, the tips of the fingers, and especially the eyes. This acidic condition caused by an acidic lifestyle and diet is known as Jaundice.  Read, share and like more:

A Drug-Free Self-Care to a Self-Cure for Acid Reflux, Fatigue, Sickness and Over-Weight!


Hi my name is Elissa.  The picture above is when I was sick, tired, and over-weight suffering from an over-acidic lifestyle and diet.

Back when i was about 37 I started having stomach problems leading to acid reflux.  I went to many Doctors and had numerous medical tests but not a single Doctor could diagnose me.  Finally. i was put on an anti-acid called Prevacid and went on with my life.  About 8 years later- the Prevacid stopped working so the Gastroenterologist Doctor put me on every drug related to reducing stomach acids. Nothing helped!  The Doctors performed 3 endoscopies over the next 8 yrs.  Not a single Doctor could help me and i began to panic. I felt sick, depressed and tired and didn’t know where to turn .

I started googling everything i could on curing acid reflux. Finally, I came across Dr. Robert O. Young’s articles about how changing your lifestyle and diet and getting rid of acidic foods would reverse acid reflux.  I researched and read his books and began changing my way of eating.  Almost immediately the acid reflux began to ease up. I was so happy!  As weeks went on my stomach and bowels healed. I lost weight, gained tons of energy and my all-over demeanor became calmer.  I was healthy and happy!

I am now 47 and I can do over 20 pushups when before I couldn’t even do 3 pushups.  I can curl 15 pounds on each arm when I couldn’t even curl 8 pounds.  I completed a 5k run for the first time. I sleep great. And, just recently I had the flu and got rid of it in 4 days using raw garlic.

My body is making me very happy these days and I owe it all to Dr. Young for guiding me on my path to healing and good health.  Look at me now free from acidic drugs, acid reflux, fatigue, sickness and over-weight.  Dr. Robert O. Young’s pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet changed and saved my life.
