Symptoms of a dysfunctional liver is overheating

Did you know that one of the symptoms of a dysfunctional liver is overheating? I have found that the complaint of overheating of the body is common in patients who are overweight and this is a sure sign that their liver needs help. The overheating can come in waves and is often associated with sweating and extreme fatigue. If this occurs in post menopausal women it is often just put down to hot flushes caused by oestrogen deficiency and the patient may be given hormone replacement therapy. If this does not relieve the hot flushes it is important to check the liver function with a simple blood test to measure the liver enzymes.

With simple diet and lifestyle measures it is easy to improve the function of the liver and one of the nice benefits of better liver function is the relief of overheating and excess sweating.

Why does a dysfunctional liver cause the body to overheat? The answer goes back to Chinese medicine which explains that when the liver is overworked or under pressure, it generates too much heat within itself. Because the liver is such a large organ this causes our whole body to overheat. The excess sweating is a reaction of the overheated body to cool body temperature and allow increased excretion of toxins through the skin. These symptoms are very unpleasant especially if you live in a hot climate and the associated fatigue can be overwhelming.

How to cool down an inflamed liver

1. Eat less carbohydrate
Poor diet is the leading cause of liver problems.  The biggest offenders are sugar and foods made of white flour; they need to be minimized in your diet. A high intake of carbohydrate rich foods in general can promote fatty liver, as the liver converts excess carbohydrate into fat.  Foods that need to be restricted include bread, pasta, rice, breakfast cereals, potatoes and any food made of flour.  See our syndrome X book  or Diabetes Type 2 – You can Reverse it Naturally for a low carbohydrate eating plan.

2. Drink less alcohol
Alcohol can cause inflammation and damage to liver cells, resulting in fatty infiltration.  People with a fatty liver should limit alcohol consumption to one drink per day, with at least two alcohol free days per week.

3. Eat more vegetables, protein and the right fats
Raw vegetables and fruits are the most powerful liver healing foods. These raw foods help to cleanse and repair the liver filter, so that it can trap and remove more fat and toxins from the bloodstream. Eat an abundance of vegetables (cooked and raw salads).  Fruit is healthy for most people, but if you have high blood sugar, polycystic ovarian syndrome or insulin resistance, it’s best to limit fruit to 2 servings per day. Protein is important because it helps to keep the blood sugar level stable, helps with weight loss from the abdomen and reduces hunger and cravings.  Protein should be consumed with each meal.  Good sources of protein include eggs, poultry, seafood, meat, nuts, seeds, whey protein powder, legumes and dairy products.

Most vegetable oil and margarines can worsen liver inflammation.  Healthy fats to include more of in your diet are found in olive oil, oily fish, flaxseeds, coconut oil and raw nuts and seeds.

4. Drink raw vegetable juices
Raw juices are an excellent source of highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  Your juice should be comprised of 80 to 100 percent vegetables, with the remainder comprised of fruit.  Do not drink fruit juice; it is too high in carbohydrate and calories.  Our book Raw Juices can Save your Life contains numerous raw juice recipes.

5. Take a good liver tonic
Choose a liver tonic that combines the clinically proven dose of St Mary’s thistle with B group vitamins, antioxidants and sulfur rich amino acids.  A good liver tonic can promote repair of damaged liver cells and facilitate the fat burning and detoxification abilities of the liver.  Livatone Plus contains all of those ingredients and is available in powder or capsule form.

6. Increase glutathione production

Glutathione is your liver’s most powerful detoxifier and it is strongly anti-inflammatory. If you have a fatty liver you need more of it. If you have a chronic inflammatory condition such as allergies, autoimmune disease, asthma or skin problems, you need more glutathione. People with too much inflammation in their body usually feel excessively hot; sometimes this only occurs at night. N-acetyl cysteine is a precursor of glutathione and is known to raise blood levels powerfully. Eating sulfur rich foods also helps with glutathione; examples include eggs, cabbage, broccoli and garlic.

  1. Hi I am 30 female, currently overweight and I have non alcoholic fatty liver, gout/gouty athritis.
    The worst thigs about having a fatty liver/other health prolems: is a stabbing feeling in my liver, nausea, sympyoms of low blood sugar level that comes and goes, deyration despite drinkig a lot of water, chronic fatigue, chronic joint pain and muscular pain, high body temperatire and e cessive sweatig constantly especially during my period or when it is hot. I use milk thistle for my liver, glucosamine chondroitin complex to repair damage to my jkints and cod liver oil,but started taking a multivitamin instead. What can I do to regulate my body temperature, and combat excessive sweating, it’s annoying and embarrassing. I have been doing more exercise everday, but sinceIstarteddoing thatIhave had random insomnia and I don’t sleep well, digestion is painful after eating food sometimes. Doctors have been rude, judgemental and very unhelpful.Will losing weight improve my heath, i’m fed up with feeling ill, i am not fit to work because.my heath is poor.
    Any advise would be helpful. I live in the UK

    • Hi Carly,

      All these symptoms are classic examples of liver inflammation, and can be helped my supporting your liver.

      Most cases of Fatty Liver result from a diet that tends to be higher in processed foods, damaged fats and higher amounts of starches and sugars.

      To reverse Fatty Liver this diet needs to change and Dr Cabot has recently released her 15 Day Cleanse – Two weeks to begin your journey toward improved liver health and function, utilising both the supplements and a tasty, easy to prepare dietary regimen. Please go to http://www.drcabotcleanse.com to place an order.

      After completing the Cleanse, we recommend you remain on this style of eating and you can then begin the Maintenance plan that is available at the same website.

      To boost liver health and your vitality, Dr Cabot prescribes

      LivaTone Plus – 2 capsules twice a day to help repair damage to the liver and improve the liver’s ability to metabolise fat.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals. This supplement works well with Livatone Plus to get your liver better faster. This supplement hastens liver healing. This supplement is the precursor nutrient of glutathione; the body’s strongest anti-oxidant.

  2. Hi, I came across your site when checking for family member who has cirrhosis of liver & diabetis and wondered if your products might help them.
    Was also wondering if might help me too.
    Am 52, was told by Chinese herbalist 20+ yrs ago I had overheated liver from chkg my tongue. At time thought nothing of it but recently wishing had paid more heed.
    Am extremely overweight, have tried to cut carbs but mood swings were shocking so family said eat them. Carbs that is..or they’d move out ..lol. had lots of problems during pregnancies repeatedly miscarried (6 times) around 18-22 weeks stage .. finally had our beautiful girl at 27 weeks after emergency c-section under General anaesthetic as told it was HELLPS .. both lucky to be here. She’s 12 now & perfect. :))
    After 4 yrs of chronic severe endometriosis had mervena coil fitted and am finally back to humanity again and can live without aggressive mood swings etc.. but am concerned that have recently been getting lot of bloating and swollen joints. Could that be linked to arthiritis I have in hips, knees etc .. any suggestions would help as GP keeps fobbing me off. Please help, any ideas would help ..

    • Hi Ann,

      A low carb diet would certainly help your liver and your weight. Many people with a fatty liver experience unstable blood sugar, which makes a low carb diet too difficult. Try taking 1 Glicemic Balance capsule with each meal. You may have an overgrowth of bad gut bugs and yeast, which can cause cravings and bloating. BactoClear capsules would help.
      Yes the bloating and swollen joints are likely due to arthritis.

  3. I am in my mid twenties, pretty healthy. I have eliminated carbs, sugars and proceeded food from my diet, which leaves me feeling fantastic also with exercise. However if I’m unable to maintain my healthy diet I have feel extremely fatigued and unable to move. Recently I’ve noticed that my body is always warm, even during the winter I do not feel cold when I go outside. However there are some times during the month where I feel cold as well, but it’s only for a day or two. I’ve been trying to conceive since a year with no luck so far. Would you have any recommendations? I have occasional skin breakouts, do suffer from dry and rough skin and inflammation after consuming a bad diet.

    • Hi Tariq,

      It seems like your body is extremely sensitive to certain foods, and you really need to stay away from unhealthy foods to keep inflammation levels down.
      Food sensitivities start in the gut, so strengthening your gut lining with glutamine should help. Taking a liver tonic like Livatone Plus should help to regulate your body temperature. These products can be purchased here: https://shop.liverdoctor.com/

And also I noticed some vision problem.. IS IT BCOZ OF DYSFUNCTIONAL LIVER??

    • Hi Gani,

      We are pleased you have read Dr Cabot’s informative article about liver dysfunction and we would like you to employ the liver restorative recommendations she makes.

      In light of the fact that you only experience overheating after taking ED medication, it may indicate that you have developed a sensitivity to the medication, and you are advised to speak to your primary care physician to have your medication changed.

      ED in a young man is often an indication of underlying pathology so we also recommend you discuss any health concerns with your PCP.

  8. Being post menapausal, it seemed as if I was having horrific hot flashes, treated natural remedy of Black Cohosh extract 160mg 4 PDF… and Russian rhubarb which has been fabulous!.. But, still overheating and freezing.. just not as much or as extreme ( I spent a year were I could barely go to the Dr and keep clothing on… ). Additionally, because of sciatic nerves nicks from a bad surgery, I have been on 300mg morphine or equalize to since 1997. I use John Elis water to keep healthy, but my tinkle turned to tea about the time my temperature swings started… I’d appreciate any thoughts you may have. Thank You for your help with this mater of health! Blessings to you and yours!

  12. Hi,

    I am 54, and the last few years my body runs hot. I do not have hot flashes but I’m warm. Lately my feet were swollen after I had 4 drinks and a decadent meal for my birthday. This has never happened. I know I need to lose some weight I am 5′ 5″ and 157 lbs. I am just wondering if my liver is in distress, just from what I’ve read on the internet. What do you recommend.

    • Hi Bernadette,

      These symptoms could indicate liver dysfunction.
      We suggest you get a liver function test and/or ultrasound scan of your liver.

  13. I have fat in the belly & thigh areas but it is distributed all over the body. I have started NDT & adrenal supplements with cortex & DHEA & stopped within a number of days, I think she over dosed me. I probably have fatty liver. I do not digest fats well. I’m on BHRT which has been a God send without it I would be disabled due to thyroid hormone not getting where I need it to go due to conversion problems. Where these originate I am not yet certain, but the liver would be a good guess. I have now read about aromatase inhibitors and that progesterone can be a factor in breast cancer in addition to estrogen. I have been prescribed variations of BHRT, and although I seem to do better on 100 mg of Progestrone the only reason I am on that much is that the MD I had to use to go on it was difficult. She asked ME what I wanted and seemed to have no idea what to order on her own & did not think testing was necessary due to my “probable low estrogen” because I am post menopausal. All the more to test for correct percentages and balancing ratios if you ask me since older women are more at risk for developing cancer due to accumulation and deficiencies in their bodies. I’m wondering what you think of DIM, testing & ratios of sex hormones, & DIM? Also any thoughts on sub clinical hypothyroidism and the use of cortex and or supplements before trying NDT?

    • Hi Kim,

      Liver health is very important to avoid breast cancer.

      Yes, there are some breast cancers that are progesterone receptor positive but most hormone dependant cancers are estrogen positive.

      Testing is always indicated to determine base levels of hormones and to ensure health is good.

      DIM promotes appropriate breakdown of estrogens in the liver, but a healthy liver is the best protection possible.

      Dr Cabot recommends you begin taking

      Livatone Plus – 2 capsules twice daily, to protect and improve liver function.

      N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC 600mg) – 2 capsules twice daily well away from food, if any upset occurs take at the beginning of your meals.

  14. I need some help! My liver must be in bad shape because I am always overheating from internal heat. I have some pretty major genetic mutations in my detox and methylation pathways and have been to many medical doctors, natural doctors, an acupuncturist, I have done muscle testing, detox baths, have taken lots of different supplements over the years, have changed my diet and am desperately trying to get this heat under control! Nothing helps! I have a very strong suspicion that my liver cant handle my estrogen- those genes are mutated. I react to lots of things- so I have to be careful what I take. Who can help me with this? I am not overweight at all and I don’t drink alcohol or caffeine. I am doing everything right to try to heal it but nothing is helping. Feeling so desperate. Not sure what kind of doctor to see to help figure this out.

    • Hi Laura,

      Please remove all gluten from your diet, to reduce inflammation.

      You may benefit your hormone imbalance by supplementing with progesterone, ensuring you reduce your exposure to all plastics and perfumed products to an absolute minimum.

      Liver health is pivotal and Dr Cabot includes MTHFR bioavailable B vitamins in Livatone Plus and recommends you have 2 capsules twice daily.

      Please combine this with NAC 600mg 2 capsules twice daily to boost your liver health and improve metabolic clearance.

      Dr Cabot recommends you introduce Fem Pro – Massage a rounded 1/8 tsp (a full pump equals 1/4 tsp) of cream into hands and body twice daily. Individual needs may vary. Transdermal delivery system with 7% MSM. This product is only used during the second half of the cycle.
