"If I have HCV, how can I protect my liver?"
« on: September 02, 2015, 01:32:21 pm »
Everything goes through the liver, whether via the mouth, skin or lungs. Avoid alcohol. If you smoke or use recreational drugs, consider getting help to quit. Keep your immunizations current. Minimize exposure to fumes and toxic substances. Only take dietary supplements and medications under professional supervision. Try to live the healthiest lifestyle you can. Regular exercise, sufficient sleep and a diet rich in plant-based, non-processed foods are good not just for the liver, but for the entire body.
