One doesn’t have to be an alcoholic to acquire liver
disease. As a matter of fact, more people in the United States are diagnosed
with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) than Alcoholic Liver Disease
(ALD). Thirty percent of the population is affected, it is often asymptomatic
and may not be detected! The clinical picture ranges from no symptoms at all to
discomfort in the area of the liver, fatigue, poor quality sleep, obesity with
abdominal (brown) fat and abnormal blood tests.
So how does this happen? The liver is the master filter of
the blood stream, pulling out toxic chemicals, extra hormones, metals and excess
sugars. It’s a complex set of processes that essentially require the liver have
a store of materials to pull from, creating the protective network that is
essential to life and health.
Risk factors abound for NAFLD. The usual suspects include
diabetes type 2 (what we associate as adult onset), obesity, high lipids in the
blood (elevated cholesterol and triglyceride…

These beloved celebrities would still be alive today if they knew what you're going to learn in the next 10 minutes Prince was one of the greatest showmen of all time. But beneath all the dance moves and swagger was a man in serious pain. All those years of jumping around on stage had taken a toll on his knees and hips.
His doctors told him that his only choices were to get a hip replacement and to take powerful pain-killing drugs. Prince took the drugs and became addicted. Over time, he needed to take higher and higher doses to get relief. Then one day, he took too much and died.
But Prince would still be alive if his doctors knew about a breakthrough treatment for knee and hip problems. This breakthrough not only gets rid of pain but actually regenerates joint tissue. Professional athletes are now using this breakthrough to extend their careers.
And ordinary people in their 60s and 70s are using it to regain youthful vigor.
Certain features have been elucidated about the tendencies of human infection of the COVID-19 virus. The most recent paper states:
"These findings suggested that the initiation of the immune response result in the production of chemokines and cytokines, which damage normal host lung."1
Chemokines and Cytokines are the chemicals the body uses to fight infection, with the purpose of creating a healing for the host-human. When the person has a pre-existing high level of these inflammatory chemicals or has a harder time dampening a hyper-vigilant immune response (as in autoimmunity), an infection can hit much harder than for those with normal inflammatory responses. This explains why COVID-19 is worse for people with underlying conditions that often are paired with older age: diabetes, heart disease, and autoimmune conditions. Determining the level of inflammation from a blood sample might help understand where the inflammation baseline is. Markers such as hsCRP, HA1c, ESR, size…
