Not due to alcohol. The liver regenerates when given the chance- and you have obviously done so. How do you feel? READ MORE
Like any virus or bacterial exacerbation, the function of the affected organ will be affected during the inflammatory phase, mostly due to inflammation. Sometimes regenerative processes can lead to fibrosis- and the liver is a sensitive organ to both processes, because of the intensity of its multiple functions in the body. READ MORE
The liver is basically the key detoxifying "factory" in the body, having to process a lot more toxins than just alcohol (for example, any drugs/medicines we take, good additives, etc). So, the question to be asked is when and what are we doing to allow the liver to regenerate or prevent overloading it. Alcohol consumption alone should not be damaging (if moderate), but when all other toxins have to be processed, then the liver gets easily overloaded. Some things are also cumulative (meaning that they are not so easy to eliminate and, if consumed regularly, will just continue to pile up). Essentially, it is not the extreme of abstinence that is important, it is the moderation in everything and practicing regular liver detox days (every other month or so) that counts. READ MORE
