Brian's story

Hi my name is Brian I'm 42 right now . When I was 40 I was diagnosed with liver disease cirrhosis. I started drinking alcohol in highschool and in my 20s got a lot worse as time went on. The day after i got out of the hospital, which they took out 3 liters of fluid out of my stomach ,I stop drinking and smoking cigarettes . I started taking the water pills and low sodium diet and just   Tee spoon of salt here and there . On my 6 month checkup , ultrasound came up cirrhosis, but blood results came out better then before and I was feeling better and no ascites and vein was ok . After about 8 months I started to get stronger and energy was getting better so I got a membership at the gym and started lifting weights and running and stair master . My second visit it's been 1 year and 2 months. All blood results came out normal and no cancer . Ultrasound showed evidence of fatty liver and not cirrhosis. And now I don't take water pills and feel great again and healthy. My advise to anyone is to stay positive, believe in yourself, stop drinking immediately , and all bad habits, and once you start feeling better , exercise, diet and is huge to become better . Anything is possible if you believe In yourself , please never give up . You can do it don't listen to all the negativity the Internet says .  I hope I help someone out there .Soon I will be getting my personal trainer certificate, and professional nutrition certificate, and want to help people with liver disease..

    To date, we have learned to start the process of liver tissue regeneration in cirrhosis, even at the F4 stage on the METAVIR scale.
    We invite medical clinics, companies engaged in medical tourism and medical practitioners to cooperate.
    We wrote letters of cooperation to more than 100 pharmaceutical companies, but no one answered.
    Clinics can only stop liver cirrhosis and improve quality of life, but not reverse cirrhosis.
    Our drug also has a positive effect on chronic hepatitis, including hepatitis B, C, B + D.

    Congratulations Brian! It sounds like your hard work and dedication really paid off. I am truly inspired. Currently, I’m in a similar situation (47), attempting to turn things around after being diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis and minor fibrosis. My doc said my liver took a little hit (ultrasound) from years of alcohol abuse, but if I abstain I can live a healthy life. Drank heavily for years, and did not eat properly. My liver enzymes (Alt Ast) went way down after only 2 weeks of no alcohol and a proper diet. I will continue to work hard. Thank you for sharing your story and God bless.
