One of the most common types of liver disease is nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and it generally occurs in people who are sedentary, overweight and/or eating too many simple sugars. Medically speaking, the risk goes up in individuals with type 2 diabetes and other conditions related to metabolic syndromes like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Conventionally speaking, there’s no effective therapy for NAFLD – aside from making lifestyle modifications that minimize damage to cells and help control blood sugar levels. Of course, if you present any of the symptoms (mentioned above) to a conventionally-trained physician, you’ll probably just be sent home with a bag of (toxic) prescription drugs – which only add to your troubles.
However, one study suggests that adding ginger to an anti-inflammatory lifestyle may benefit individuals with liver disease. Today, we’ll explain why this herb (sometimes referred to as a spice) is so valuable.
