View Full Version : Liver Damage?

It feels like my Ribs are rubbing against my Liver. What is going on? I have been raw for 8 months, and a vegan for almost 3 years. I first felt this weird almost painful feeling at 6 weeks raw. I am so confused by this that I dont even know what I want to ask. All advice welcome.

Well I dare say, unless you drank extensively or had extreme toxicity exposure of some sort, your liver is prob fine.
If it hurts, it might be liver stones(yes they are made in the liver not the gallbladder).
The liver is the major organ for cleaning the body and it works hard. As you are raw, it dumps stuff into the liver.Raw might have created some discomfort there.
Have you done the liver cleanse? It is posted on top of this forum.
It will clean out your liver and help this feeling if it is your liver.
So much physical stuff comes and goes on raw and I never panic as it passes soon. It is my body healing. It took a long time to get this way and as it is coming back out or cleaning, it might cause some symptoms.
I pull toward wellness and say I am well and healing. I also welcome these changes as they are creating a healthier me.
Hope this helps you. See how it goes.Ooops forgot....beets are super for the liver as well as silimarin or milk thistle herb.

With any abdominal pain, I would go to the doc to get it checked out.
It might be appendicitis which is more serious. I had severe heartburn so the doc sent me home some antacids. Next day I was admitted for an emergency appendectomy and mine ruptured. Had they caught it a day earlier I wouldn't have spent so much time in the hospital or endured as much pain. Doc told me afterward that the symptoms are so very different for different people with appendicitis. Symptoms can range from mild or severe.
My advice is to have it checked out by a doc just in case. If nothing shows up, then do a liver cleanse.
