Because of my poor stomach lining and previous stomach condition, I try to avoid acidic foods and beverages. Coffee, though I love it, is one of the worst. When I began the journey of healing my gut, I cut out coffee entirely. I now drink coffee every once in a while, but unfortunately, it can never be a part of my daily routine. You are probably wondering how I stay energized without coffee, as most of the country is completely addicted to caffeine. Well, keep reading and I will share my secret!
I take desiccated liver tablets. Fresh raw liver is packed with B vitamins and other energy boosting nutrients that keep me energized throughout the day. Unfortunately, liver does not taste very good which is why I get my nutrients from liver in supplement form.
Since I started taking desiccated liver, I have noticed that I have way more energy throughout the day. It is even easier to get out of bed in the morning. I have also noticed great improvements in my level of endurance when simply biking or going for a run.
Desiccated liver supplements are made by taking fresh, raw, grass-fed, beef liver and dehydrating it at a very low temperature. The dehydrated liver is then milled into a fine powder and either pressed into tablets or poured into capsules. The result is a convenient and easy way to get the nutrients found in fresh, raw, beef liver.
The best dessicated liver powder will contain only 100% pure, non-defatted, grass-fed beef liver and absolutely nothing else. It should not contain fillers, flow agents, synthetic nutrients, or any artificial ingredients. The best supplements are as close to nature as possible, and you should look for this standard in a desiccated liver supplement, as well.
My name is Henry Wright and in 2008 I was diagnosed with stomach gastritis. Absolutely everything I ate made me sick and if I drank alcohol or ate anything acidic, like hot sauce, I was likely to end up in the emergency room. After about 2 years and 10 different types of prescription medicine… I gave up and it might have been the best decision I ever made for my health.
I told my doctor that I no longer wanted to take ANY medication. I wasn’t going to go through any more invasive, unnecessary, and dangerous testing. In fact, I told my doctor that I probably wouldn’t be visiting him much longer. At this time, my appetite had absolutely disappeared. I was never hungry because everything made me sick. I found that the only thing I could eat was lightly cooked and raw vegetables and thus I was forced to be somewhat of a vegetarian for a while.
After a couple of months without medication and an unintentionally fairly healthy diet, I lost 25 pounds and my stomach was beginning to feel better. I started cooking all of my meals from scratch and constantly doing research about the American food system. I watched movies such as ‘Forks over Knives’ and ‘Farmageddon’ and began reading ‘Nourishing Traditions’ and following a Weston A. Price inspired diet.
I now eat mostly local and organic whole foods that I cook from scratch. Thanks to a healthy diet and supplementing with probiotics, my stomach gastritis has healed almost entirely and I can eat pretty much whatever I want without much trouble. I find that as long as I am eating healthy whole foods, I am able to maintain a healthy weight and optimal digestive health.
