Please help.
I am 40yrs old and been diagnosed with cirrhosis over 3 yrs ago now.
Lots of pretty bad things have happened in my life over the last few yrs as well as what's happening now in regards to my health.
I have stage 3/4 cirrhosis but through consequences of a different nature, I now live with my father, sister and my eldest son who is here as well but my biggest problem is, apart from having to deal with this "thing" I have is a total lack of understanding from my family around me.
My father is an in denial alchoholic, sister too and my mum died to an alchohol based illness.
I so NEED to be able to talk about thing but when my dad gets drunk at night, has to hate someone and atm it's me.
I am scared by my illness, as everyone is and lately it seems every other day there is something new to worry about.
Now I'm not taking my meds and I've all but given up. Please help

  • European doctors have been treating liver disease with "Essential Forte" for decades... American doctors have only now started to notice this supplement, sold in America under the brand names: PhosChol and HepatoPro. The secret ingredient is PPC (polyenylphosphatidylcholine). No side effects and very safe. Google around on this and you might be interested. A doctor called Lieber has done a lot of work with liver disease. Google his name with polyenylphosphatidylcholine and see what he learned. PPC will slow the progression of your disease and help preserve the healthy tissue you have left. PPC has been shown to help with fibrosis. Ask your doctor first, and don't take more than 2 or 3 PPC a day. I really think this might help you. It helped me! Good Luck and GodSpeed."A baboon study (Lieber CS et al., 1994) confirmed earlier results (Lieber CS et al., 1990) showing that in the baboon, feeding of ethanol results in hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis even when associated with an adequate diet. This effect could be prevented by supplementing the diet with a 94-96% pure PPC preparation. None of the eight animals fed alcohol with PPC for up to 6.5 years had progression to fibrosis or cirrhosis as had 10 of 12 unsupplemented baboons, a highly significant difference. Another study (Ma X et al., 1996) revealed that PPC reduces hepatic fibrosis induced by either carbon tetrachloride or human albumin in rats, and that PPC not only prevents the development of fibrosis but accelerates the regression of pre-existing fibrosis. The study further suggested that the protective effect exerted by PPC against fibrosis is due, at least in part to increased collagen breakdown."
