How to Get Rid of Cirrhosis of the Liver

The liver is the largest solid organ in the body and weighs about three pounds. It is responsible for manufacturing proteins, storing excess nutrients, manufacturing bile, helping to store blood sugar, filtering out harmful substances, and producing cholesterol. Cirrhosis is a disease in which the healthy tissue of the liver is replaced by scar tissue which hampers liver function by blocking the flow of blood and slowing the processing of both good nutrients and bad toxins. It is most commonly caused by Hepatitis C, fatty liver and alcohol abuse.
