*Results may vary. The information in this site is NOT to be construed as medical advice. Cirrhosis of the liver is a serious condition and if you have it, you should see a doctor. I am not a doctor and am not able to dispense medical advice. My husband saw a doctor (many of them) and they were able to do things for him that I could not. However, they were unable to recommend alternative treatments, and in MY OPINION they were VERY beneficial to my husband, so I am providing some of that information here. My husband and I tried all of these alternative therapies at our own risk, and if you try them you will be doing the same. At your own risk. No promises are made in this blog. I am not saying there is a cure for cirrhosis or any other condition. However, I believe most people can get well, like my husband did. My husband is alive, happy, productive, functional and has his energy back. He no longer worries about having to go on disability or getting a $577,000 liver transplant. Cirrhosis is a serious condition. He is currently in the fibrosis stage (Stage 2 liver disease), which is still serious. I cannot guarantee you will have the same results. I just want you to know about what worked well for my husband. I hope you will share what you learned with others, and share your story with us as well. This blog was made for YOU! Thanks for visiting!

Congratulations to my Hubby, for 5 years of Sobriety!

I just wanted to do this quick post to congratulate my husband on 5 years of sobriety.  I haven't had time to do a lot of posting lately, since I'm taking care of a friend with late stage cancer, but my husband is very proud of his sobriety, as he deserves to be. 

He quit drinking completely, 5 years ago - just before his birthday. Unfortunately, we learned the hard way that quitting is just the first step in recovering from cirrhosis, but it's a HUGE step, and 5 years is truly an amazing feat. I'm so proud of him, and want to thank him for having the strength to quit... and for the fact that I never have to worry about him getting a DUI!

For those of you who are still wondering if you should quit drinking, I assure it is WORTH IT, and I can assure you that your sobriety will improve the quality of life not just for yourself, but just about everyone around you!

Congratulations honey. You did good and I'm very proud of you : ). Thank you for letting me share your story, and I hope it will continue to inspire others.



  1. Thanks sweet heart, it is a true blessing and thank you for all your love, support, and work behind this awesome blog! I believe that I may not be alive today without all your incredible work. I love you!

  2. Wow, Jake's made his first-ever appearance! : D. Woohoo!
    You're welcome, hun ; ). I'm just glad you are still around. And that your sense of humor is still fully intact : )
    For anyone else reading this, I have to tell you, Jake is gearing up to call some of you who have requested info on the water. He recently said he'd like to take some time to try to help some people, as me and the woman who normally call people about the water, have been swamped with work and other things, and we need help! But in addition, Jake is the guy with the MOST knowledge about what it's like to go through this disease!!! He has a full time job, so he doesn't have a ton of time, but he said he's willing to make some calls. Yay! Sorry if it takes us a while to get back to you guys, we are all very overloaded right now (I don't even have time to approve all the comments on this blog), but we will get back to you as soon as we can!
