More specifically, you want help with 9 Things Your Feet Can Tell About Your Liver?
hey guys today we’re gonna be use the foot as a way of diagnosing the liver and of course my disclaimer here is that you’re not really diagnosing a liver disease you have to go to the doctor and have them do tests to figure that out but this will give you some good clues on a potential problem with your liver okay that being said let’s dive in and these are just little indicators that can actually help you narrow things down the first thing we’re going to talk about is the little red and brown dots they can be larger and smaller and you can also have like little shininess to them they’re usually on the lower leg that is poor circulation and that is usually a liver problem it could also be diabetes it could be many other things but you see this a lot when people have liver problems so the actual appearance of the lower leg and the foot gives a lot of great information about the overall health of the person because the heart has to send blood all the way down to your feet and then back through the vascular system and usually if there’s a liver problem or a heart problem whatever there’s gonna be a vascular problem and you’re gonna see it in this part of your body a lot because the poor circulation that’s occurring so a lot of these problems happen at a the greatest distance from the heart and also even with diabetes for example you see neurological problems in your feet in your hands because of that fact because it affects the distal fingers which is the the point furthest away from the heart okay so you’ll see red and brown little discoloration type specks on the lower leg and then something called spider veins or another name would be spider nevus which usually see this in cirrhosis and what’s happening to the liver is you’re building up a lot of estrogen and too much estrogen can affect the vascular system so you can see varicose veins and spider veins and you can see them in the lower legs then we have cracked heels okay this is usually a vitamin b3 deficiency or an omega-3 fatty acid deficiency why because one of the functions of the liver is to make bile and help you absorb these fatty acids not just omega-3 fatty acids but vitamin A which could be involved in the skin vitamin E which could be involved in the skin those are fat soluble vitamins but vitamin b3 also affects the skin other B vitamins also can affect the skin as well just how they relate to the cofactor the to help the enzymes work especially with proteins so b3 deficiency can create a problem another name for that would be pellagra people with pellagra which is a B 3 deficiency have a lot of skin issues all right each of the foot usually in the bottom of the foot that is a backup of fluids into the liver it’s a congested liver it could be bio backing up and you’re getting a buildup of histamines a congested liver so you could have itching in the foot also you can have pain or inflammation in the bottom of the foot a lot of times people associate that with something called plantar fasciitis where it’s really not quite a fasciitis it’s just a liver problem and then you also have hot feet hot feet is another symptom of a bad liver and then we have bad odor so you have smelly feet why because the liver is not able to detoxify correctly and it’s backing up through the skin usually it delivers bad the person’s diet is pretty bad and the entire body is backed up with garbage and especially the large intestine and the kidneys and it’s coming out through the skin so you can’t just have a really terrible unhealthy bad liver and have a very healthy kidney or colon there if one is bad they’re usually all pretty congested and unhealthy okay pitting edema that’s where you press your finger into the lower leg and it leaves a dent and it just stays there that’s fluid back up that’s a common liver symptom and then we have fungus toenail fungus people with liver problems have a higher level of fungus growing on their body because they’re they’re usually have an imbalance in the micro flora and the gut and that is going to relate to an overgrowth of fungus and yeast and the outside of the body so that’s why you see like dandruff and psoriasis toenail fungus and then the the nail bed in it you can actually happen on the hands or the feet the nail bed is going to be white you’re gonna usually lose that little moon shape thing Luna down here so it’s going to be white because of the poor circulation that’s occurring on that now bad alright so then the next question is what really causes liver problems a lot of things one big one is the side effect from medications another one is a lot of sugar in the diet especially high fructose corn syrup cooked foods so if you’re just having canned foods which are pasteurized and you’re not having anything raw that’s eventually going to be very very hard on the liver and the kidney and also a lack of any vegetables and if you’re eating junk food combined with that you have no enzymes to put in the body no antioxidants from these vegetables so that can be a problem excessive alcohol that’s a given and then excessive protein so if you’re doing massive amounts of protein it built up a lot of nitrogen waste over time that can then overload the liver and the kidney and put a lot of stress on and so if there is liver damage or kidney damage you want to go a little lower on the protein higher in the vegetables okay so now what is a good diet for the liver now if you’re new to my channel click the link down below I will show you a combination of a healthy ketogenic diet and intimate fasting okay so that’s why I’m gonna recommend for those of you that are not new and you’ve been on my channel if you watch a lot of videos you already know this you’re on the program you’re already

What Really Causes Liver Problems?
1. Side effects of Medications
2. High Sugar in the diet (HFCs or High Fructose Corn Syrup)
3. Cooked Foods
4. Low Veggies in the diet
5. Excessive Alcohol
6. Excessive Protein
Your gallbladder can also be involved, because the liver makes bile and if its damaged, then you will not release the amount of bile needed and this can cause gallstones.
