Baby & Child Liver

Baby & Child Liver

While we think of infants as beginning life with a clean slate, the truth is that a developing baby’s liver takes on the past. In utero, and even at the moment we were conceived, we inherited liver troublemakers from our parents, their parents before them, and so on down the family line.

Any poison or pathogen that an ancestor has carried can end up in our livers before we’re born. Exposure to mercury, aluminum, copper, and other toxins (most commonly pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides) early on in a child’s life, or even passed down via egg, sperm, or in utero, can lead to a sluggish, stagnant liver from the start. So can an early low-grade viral or bacterial infection (most commonly from one of the over 60 varieties of EBV, one of the numerous strains of HHV-6, or a strain from the over 50 groups of Strep bacteria). Plus, early standard medical treatments for babies can contribute.

So instead of being born with our livers functioning at 100% like they were in indigenous cultures centuries ago, or even 90 or 95% as they were in more recent history, the average healthy person today is born with a liver running at 70% at best. Since we don’t learn how to care for our livers, that percentage gradually drops over the course of someone’s lifetime, for some more quickly than others, depending on exposures. Early liver trouble translates to many of the mystery health conditions that arise in babies and children. This includes acid reflux, gastric distress, eczema and psoriasis, unexplained constipation, stomach pain, intestinal spasms, gastritis, Crohn’s disease and colitis, IBS, early mono, strep throat, ear infections, acne, bronchitis, random rashes with pustules, mysterious boils, hives, random swollen glands, fever, and blisters. Even unexplained irritability, anger, frustration, and tantrums in young ones. The liver starving for glucose can also get little ones very cranky, with low blood sugar episodes, fatigue, and seemingly random tiredness.

The liver determines more of children’s health and well-being than we know. Find out how to help children heal in the New York Times best-selling book, Cleanse To Heal.
