Dr. Berg talks about the liver causing too much ammonia in the body. Ammonia is a byproduct of protein metabolism. Normally, in the digestive tract you break down protein from the stomach that turns into amino acids that supposed to go through the liver and there’s certain byproducts that occur with those amino acids; ammonia and urea. Urea is the less toxic form of ammonia.

Symptoms of Ammonia
• Confusion
• Mood Changes
• Personality Changes
• Nerve Damage / Brain Dysfunction
• Comma (Possible)

Possible Reasons Why Ammonia Buildup in the Body
1. Cirrhosis (Scar tissue of the liver)
2. Hepatitis
3. Alcohol
4. Carnitine Deficiency – Carnitine is a protein that is a carrier-like that delivers to the mitochondria for energy. So if you have a carnitine deficiency, you can build up too much ammonia.
5. Dehydration
6. SIBO – Too much bacteria growing in the small intestine and not in the large.

What Things You Can Do?
1. Start cutting down protein.

3. High potassium foods (Vegetables)
4. Chlorophyll (Wheatgrass juice powder)
5. Probiotics
6. Garlic
