Fatty liver may cause enlargement of the liver, also result in symptoms such as fever, confusion and jaundice, or yellowing of the skin. Adopt a diet consisting of about 75 percent organic raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. Adopt a diet consisting of about 75 percent organic raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. Prescription for nutritional healing, raw, organic plant foods introduce fewer toxins into the body than cooked foods. This may reduce the workload on the liver, allowing it to clear out fatty deposits and regenerate healthy cells. Add turmeric to soups, curries. Turmeric, this spice contains a chemical, called curcumin, that may help protect the liver against damage caused by accumulated fats. It may also aid in the regeneration of liver cells and the removal of fats. The healing herbs, anise seeds may stimulate the regeneration of healthy liver cells, allowing the liver to flush out excess fats. Add beans and legumes, such as chickpeas, kidney beans, soybeans and peas, to your diet. These foods contain arginine, an amino acid that helps neutralize ammonia, which is a toxic byproduct created by the body during the digestion process. Detoxification of ammonia may reduce stress on the liver. Proper hydration may help cleanse the liver of fats and toxins.

if your fingering is into the anus then the bleeding could be due to injury. if the fingering is in to the vagina then it could be due to piles. if its due to piles avoid constipation by taking medicines for the same, take plenty of water, take raw vegetables along with each meal. avoid junk food and outside food. if fingering in to anus or putting objects in to anus including anal sex avoid the same, if you insist to do the same there is method for the same and follow it. good luck

Dear lybrate-user you are very obese. 98 kg is too much. You have to loose weight. Digestive system should always be protected. Taking diet in regular timings better to take vegetarian diet. Leafy vegetables keera carrot etc. Regular pranayama meditation and exercise like surya namaskara. Etc. Don't take heavy fatty and junk food. Take always hot water regularly.
