You’ve held in a lot of anger and frustration over the years and your diet hasn’t exactly been the best.  You probably love a greasy cheeseburger with fries and some ice cream, but you definitely pay the consequences for it.  You are prone to developing a fatty liver, a sluggish gallbladder, or gallstones.

Possible Symptoms:

  • intolerance to fatty & fried foods

  • discomfort in the lower ribcage

  • tightness or fullness in the chest 

  • bitter taste in the mouth

  • nausea or vomiting

  • distended abdomen

  • vaginal itching 

  • excessive vaginal discharge

  • redness, pain or swelling of scrotum

  • dark urine

  • jaundice

  • fever

Causes:

  • Irregular eating habits

  • Too many cold & raw foods in the diet

  • Overthinking or mental strain

  • Long term frustration or repressed anger

  • Living in a hot and damp tropical climate

Helpful Tips:

  • Get plenty of fresh, organic, dark leafy greens in your diet and cut out the junk food.
