Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver which can be caused by a variety of different causes. Hepatitis is associated with damage and destruction of the liver cells (hepatocytes).
It can be acute or chronic.
Functions of the liver:
žDetoxification (ammonia, alcohol, medication ...)
žExcretion of metabolic products (breakdown of steroid hormones, bilirubin from heme)
žstorage (150 g glycogen, Fe, A, D, K, E, B12, 20% of the blood)
žFirst pass effect (filter for all absorbed substances)
žImmune defense (copper star cells)
žMotion of blood (breakdown of erythrocytes)
žMetabolism (EW, F, KH)
žProducer (cholesterol from fatty acids & glucose, bile juice (0.5-1 L / day) blood proteins (albumins, globulins), blood clotting substances (fibrinogen, coagulation factors)
žPH value / heat / buffer regulation
Causes of inflammation:
there is a purely mechanical or physical impairment (radiation hepatitis, bruise , blood flow disorder, etc.)
toxic substances (drugs, drugs, poisons)
Pathogens (viruses, bacteria, parasites)
and many more
Fatty liver can also lead to fatty liver hepatitis. Weight loss is highly recommended in order to break down the fat in the liver and not to risk fatty liver hepatitis.
Release of inflammatory mediators: cytokines
Immigration of leukocytes and macrophages into the liver tissue
Signs of inflammation in the body: leukocytosis, fever, increased blood sedimentation, C-reactive protein (CRP)
Deterioration or death (necrosis) of liver cells
Release of proteins and enzymes from dead liver cells
Increase in transaminases ("liver enzymes")
Limitation of the metabolic functions of the liver
Disturbance of hemoglobin and bile acid metabolism with an accumulation of albumin, bilirubin in the blood and consequent jaundice (jaundice)
The disturbed energy metabolism (glycogen) can result in a feeling of weakness
Since the synthesis of blood coagulation factors is reduced, there is an increased tendency to bleed
Furthermore, the removal of free ammonia from the bloodstream is impaired, which causes encephalopathy with the end stage of hepatic coma (coma hepaticum).
If the inflammation does not heal without consequences (restitutio ad integrum), the submerged liver tissue is replaced by scar tissue: fibrosis of the liver, liver cirrhosis (due to chronic hepatitis)
Why is nutritional therapy important?
Nutritional therapy supports you in reducing the inflammation of the liver for quick healing and regeneration through a wholesome, easily digestible diet. It also supports the liver function so that it can work better despite the inflammation. Furthermore, flatulence, bloating, pressure in the abdomen and abdominal pain are reduced by appropriate dietary therapy. The aim is to provide you with a wholesome diet that contains all of the fatty acids, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are important for you, energy and protein in such a way that your body is optimally supplied. For this purpose, foods that promote inflammation are specifically avoided and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods are consumed. Weight reduction is recommended if you are overweight / obese. An anti-inflammatory diet can improve your health and strengthen your immune system for more well-being and strength in your everyday life. You will learn how you can actively counteract inflammation through foods that naturally have antifungal (against fungi), antibacterial (against bacteria), antiviral (against viruses) and antioxidant as well as immune-boosting properties - that is, natural antibiotics.
Important: Please refrain from alcohol and nicotine.
Classification of your weight - definition and classification of weight in relation to height.
Special percentile curves apply to children and adolescents; the BMI cannot simply be used here.
BMI and interpretation: BMI: body mass index. Formula: Body weight in kg : (body height in m) 2
Normal weight: 18.5 - 24.9
Overweight = pre-obesity: 25-29.9
Obesity grade I: 30 - 34.9
Obesity grade II: 35-39.9
Obesity grade III:> 40 = per magna
It is advisable to have your Omega 3 index checked regularly.
This provides information about the supply of valuable omega 3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid), which can significantly counteract inflammatory processes in the body.
Anti-inflammatory nutrition as a basis, individually tailored to you
Holistic therapy - do you have any comorbidities that need to be taken into account during the consultation?
Overall fat selection, how should it be designed
How many animal foods (e.g. meat products, milk and dairy products, cheese, fish products, eggs) are recommended?
What do I have to look out for when choosing animal foods?
How can I counteract inflammatory processes through diet?
Body weight: Weight reduction is recommended if you are overweight / obese.
Avoid micronutrient deficiencies and mineral deficiencies & possibly counteract them with nutrient preparations
Prevent protein deficiency
Which nutrients do I need in which ratio?
Get enough fiber (> 30 g / day) through natural foods, possibly fiber substitution
Sufficient fluid: total fluid per day: 30 - 35 ml per kg body weight and day. Attention, this is not just a drinking liquid. The liquid from food (approx. 500 - 800 ml) must still be subtracted from this, so that an amount of approx. 1.3 - 2 l of drinking liquid is created.
add valuable anti-carcinogenic (anti-cancer) secondary plant substances
A selection of foods tailored to your needs with cooking and technical information (for breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner)
