I recently decided to renovate the Your Home Remedies blog, which hasn’t had a new post in over five years. On checking over the previous posts, I found to my surprise that they were still both interesting and up-to-date.
Blog posts come in one of four main categories: articles, questions, reviews, and videos. For more information on this and other topics, see the Your Home Remedies home page.

If You Have Aloe – Nature’s Miracle.
Nature’s Remedies is a video about a book. It was made by the author, Jean Willoughby, in order to promote the sales of her book. When I was researching this topic, I watched the video, and thought that it was a wonderful way to present the book, so I have included it in my post.
This time we have a Quick Quiz on a topic that was given to us by one of our viewers. If you get the wrong answer, just try again.

Your liver is the largest organ in your body, and it performs about 500 essential functions. Here are a few of them:
There are over 100 types of liver disease, but only a few can be helped by natural remedies:
Fatty liver can be cured simply by changes in your diet and lifestyle.
Diet: Avoid bad fats – saturated and trans fats – and any foods that get converted into fat, such as sugar and refined flour. Cut down on salt, and use healthy spices. Garlic, cumin, and turmeric will help heal your liver.
Lifestyle: Losing excess weight and exercising regularly will help not only your liver, but will give you a new outlook on life. Ask any of your friends who belong to a gym, and they will be happy to tell you how it has affected their life.
If you are having more than one or two drinks a day, this is definitely one of the causes of your fatty liver. You need to stop altogether until your liver condition is cured.
Of course, Natural Remedies, although not necessary to cure fatty liver, can always help speed recovery, and will also help prevent its recurrence.
Now I am going to get personal, since this is the reason why I am writing this article. About a year and a half ago, my doctor told me that my liver was damaged, and that I must give up alcohol entirely for at least a month.
I did so. At the end of that time I got re-tested, and was given a clean bill of health. The doctor said that I could resume drinking, but no more than one or two drinks a day.
During the following year, my alcohol consumption gradually increased until I was regularly consuming a bottle of wine every day. This went on until I began to experience some symptoms of liver damage: mild pain in the upper right abdominal area, lethargy, and heartburn.
I was getting worried, so I searched a catalog from my vitamin company, and found that dandelion root was often taken for liver problems. For the next six months, I regularly took dandelion root, and my symptoms disappeared.
At my next physical checkup, the doctor informed me that my liver tested as healthy – I couldn’t believe it! But what else can I say? It’s working for me. So give dandelion root a chance, if you have a mild liver problem, and maybe it’ll work for you too!
I searched the internet, and found that there is some evidence that dandelion root stimulates the production of bile by the liver, thus helping it to remove toxins. But all I can say is, "If it works, don’t mess with it!"
