Testing the pectoralis major muscle or the rhomboid muscle for weakness can be a sign of a congested liver. The liver produces 80% of the cholesterol needed by the body, the remaining 20% comes from the food we eat. If your liver is struggling, cholesterol specialist Scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff says eating more foods high in cholesterol eases the burden for the liver, allowing it to rest and repair.



Pressing on the rhomboid muscle, in the center of the right side, right in the middle of the muscle by the shoulder blade can tell you if there is stress upon the liver. If pressing on that spot causes blanching it could be a flag connected to a struggling liver. Blanching is when the skin remains white for a prolonged period of time.





According to healthmad.com puffy lower lids or saggy lids are a sign of an overworked liver and possibly overworked kidneys. Supplying the liver with nourishing cholesterol will assist the workload on the liver.

Cleansing the liver can be done is several ways. According to Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride and Dr. Stephanie Seneff eating lots of cholesterol is a healthy way to feed the liver so that it isn’t working in overdrive. Foods rich in cholesterol are pastured egg yolks, pastured animal fats, oysters, lobster, crab, shrimp and oysters. Seneff says cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage both green and purple) aid the process.



Natural methods to support the liver include magnesium treatment: Epsom salts baths, use half to one cup in a warm bath, supplement with magnesium malate taken with trace minerals, milk thistle (affiliate links) or milk thistle flower essence.

    Cholesterol in cruciferous vegetables? Huh?

  2. Heather says:

    Liz Reeder, you misread the info. It did not say that cruciferous vegetables had cholesterol, but rather that it aided the process.
