Shorting Long-Chain Fatty Acids
Question — I gave my dog fermented cod liver oil for 1 1/2 years, and after that time his previously normal liver markers in the blood went over reference range.
He also has a lot of lipomas now.
I was also taking it, for 7 years, and my 8-OHDG shows I’m in oxidative stress.
I hadn’t consumed PUFAs other than in the FCLO.
Is there anything a person can do to undo the effects of taking cod liver oil? Any way to get rid of lipomas?
Answer — So far I haven’t found a single legitimate case of a lipoma “cure” without surgery.
Free radicals and injury are implicated in their formation.
As an example of injury, a diabetic grew a series of lipomas where insulin was injected.
A quantitative or qualitative lack of vitamin D may be involved.
Human beings have more tolerance for long-chain fatty acids than their pets, due to a more varied diet.
Make sure your dog isn’t eating any fish scraps or added fish oil, common ingredients in pet food.
Beef with added vitamin E might be a good dog-food choice.
Maybe you can consult with a vet or “dog whisperer” aware of the pitfalls of cod liver oil and Yellow Fat Disease.
Pet owners need to be wary of the chemical feasts known as processed pet foods
The Food and Drug Administration is even lousier at protecting animal health than human health.
Thousands of pets died from melamine poisoning in 2007.
Human beings as well as their pets can eventually eliminate most of the polyunsaturated fatty acids they’ve stored over the years …
simply by NOT EATING ANY MORE OF THEM. :)
This is especially true with a circadian eating protocol (like Sun Sync Nutrition).
It’s impossible to avoid all polyunsaturated fatty acids. Keeping them to a minimum is all that’s necessary.
Coffee is especially suited for making a human cirrhotic liver lean again, but not canine or feline ones.
(Dogs and cats should avoid coffee, chocolate, tea, and energy drinks.)
Drink Cobalamin Tonic (coffee, cocoa, and maple syrup) at Stomach Time (7:00-9:00 a.m.) to “shunt” Liver Time (1:00-3:00 a.m.).
Caffeine tolerance is a measure of good liver function.
The ability to handle caffeine is used as a test for cirrhosis in several countries, according to Georgi (a.k.a. Haidut).
