      Home Remedies and Lifestyle Changes that Improve Liver Cirhosis

      1. Avoid alcohol consumption: The liver is responsible for detoxifying alcohol, and it has to work harder to detoxify it and remove it from the body. The more you consume alcohol, the more you put pressure on your liver to detoxify it and the liver losses its tissues anytime it detoxies alcohol. The more alcohol you consume, the more your liver losses its tissues. These lost tissues are replaced by scars. These scars inhibit the liver from performing its functions. The liver eventually losses its functions and leads to liver cirrhosis, and if not attended to or treated, it can lead to liver cancer.
