Liver a cure for keratosis pilaris/chicken skin!?

Asked on May 25, 2015
Created June 09, 2014 at 8:19 PM

I totally did not expect this at all! I have tried all kinds of stuff over the last 5 years, including creams, going gluten free, grain free, eliminating dairy, trying CLO and high vitamin butter oil but none of it made much of a difference.

But I've been eating liver for about 2 weeks now. I wasn't eating it to cure KP but rather for the nutrients overall. But about 2 days after eating some chicken liver I noticed a change. I figured it was just in my head so I ignored it. I ate chicken liver again, and the next day my KP had lessened even more! I couldn't believe it. So, again, I continued eating chicken liver for a few more days and the KP is almost gone. This is crazy! This is NOT in my head, because I have compared pictures directly, and there is a HUGE difference.

There is something in the liver that is causing this, because nothing else in my diet has changed. I don't use any creams on my skin, and I've been using the exact same soap I've been using for over a year so it's not that.

Anyone else notice a difference with liver? I have about 1-2 ounces of chicken liver every 2 or 3 days. And I eat it cooked, not raw.

I steam it to a temperature just above the minimum safe cooking temperature, freeze, refrigerate and thaw when necessary, and eat on its own with nothing added in a meal with something like an improved AIP compliant guacomole or a smoothie with paleo ingredients and more that go before or after that.

That's interesting. I have mild keratosis pilaris on the arms and thighs since forever and it doesn't matter what I eat and treat my skin, nothing makes a difference. I'd like to try the "chicken liver" challenge, can you tell me how much of it approximately you take everyday?

cut it in small chunks, then freeze said chunks in an aluminum pan, then place all frozen chunks into a ziploc in the freezer. In the morning, get the ziploc out and put a few frozen chunks in your breakfast. No cooking. I eat it with natto, rice and olives.

Two words: spaghetti squash.

That's great (: thank you Matt. My arms have cleared slightly just since starting Paleo. Fingers crossed liver will make a difference.

Chicken liver you can use to fortify some pasta sauce. Of course, you're paleo so you can't eat pasta… get creative, or just "suffer" through some lasagna like I do.

Beef liver is stronger flavored. I've been known to drown it in onions, peppers and cheese for a cheesesteak-like creation. Or you can grind it up and mix with ground beef for a meatloaf. You don't need much to see effects. Maybe 4-8 ounces a month.

Wow, I've read that KP is highly connected with Candida overgrowth. That is some nice thing to happen to you. My guess is that you are strengthening your immune system with great amount of vitamins and minerals from liver

I'm totally going to eat some chicken liver now! I always thought it wasn't as good as beef liver and then not worth eating, but that was silly! I found a great diary free recipe! I think some people just don't need preformed Vitamin A - http://carolinasaucecompany.blogspot.com/2014/02/egyptian-style-beef-liver-youll-never.html

 

Do you think it's just the vitamin A or other things too...I find that If I take 30,000 to 40,000 iu Vitamin A daily, the bumps go away! I think My body requires way more vitamin A, but I'd rather do it without pills! I wish I new a safe high dose...I've read that 50000 is a lot, and then not a lot in some places...so conflicted.

Chicken liver can give you more methylated folate before you realize you consumed too much animal form vitamin A but what may be suspected for the change is most likely animal form vitamin A, on the other hand chicken liver also tastes better.

Ohh. I have really bad KP. Have done for as long as I can remember. All of both arms, and all up my legs. I'm going to have to try liver now. But I don't know if I could stomach it. How do you cook it?

I find beef liver is even more effective. I wager it's a good bolus of copper and vitamin A that does it.
