Acupuncture and Natural Medicine for Liver Conditions

A wide range of health concerns can be attributed to liver function. A healthy liver performs hundreds of biochemical reactions every day to help with absorbtion of nutrients, detoxification of the body, and transport of nutrients through the circulatory system.

Our practice provides specialized acupuncture and nutritional support for many patients experiencing liver conditions. If a liver condition is suspected but not yet diagnosed, we also recommend that patients consult with a gastroenterologist or hepatologist for a thorough diagnosis. These practitioners have special tools to evaluate the health of the liver and digestive system.

Illnesses affecting the liver can cause or contribute to symptoms such as:

• Fatigue
• General Feeling of Ill-health
• Swollen Abdomen
• Pale Stools
• Jaundice (a yellowing of the eyes)
• Itching all over the Body
• Discomfort in Abdomen
• Hemorrhoids
• Anemia
• Nausea
• Bleeding or Bruising Easily
• Insulin Resistance (type II diabetes)

We offer supportive care and treatment options for these conditions:

• Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
• Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)
• Alcoholic Liver Disease
• Liver Fibrosis
• Sclerosing Cholangitis
• Liver Cirrhosis
• Portal Hypertension
• Liver Conditions Secondary to Cystic Fibrosis
• Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
• Side-Effects of Pharmaceuticals
• Liver Cancer
• Problems Affecting Multiple Organs
• Alcohol-Related Neuropathy

Many of the symptoms listed above are not specific for liver disease, but can also be caused by other conditions. In some cases, these symptoms may arise as a result of a side-effect of medications or supplements. It is important to let your health providers know what supplements and medications you are taking. If you suspect that you may have a liver condition, visit a medical provider as soon as possible for a consultation.
