Too much liver? (healing from surgery)

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 27, 2013 at 4:33 PM

I had surgery last week. I've been doing pretty much everything from this thread, and healing is surprisingly fast:

http://paleohacks.com/questions/169162/help-a-bad-healer-heal-after-major-surgery

Lots of colostrum, vitamin C, bone broth, collagen supplement, garlic and onions. Also have taken whey protein, glutamine, and arginine. Also B vitamins and fish oil.

I had liver last night, and have leftovers. If I have liver every day for the next week or so, will I end up overdosing on certain vitamins, such as vitamin A?

If so, how often should I eat liver while recovering from surgery?

Also, anything else I should add to speed recovery?

I'll check TJ again to see what they have. I can get Bumblee Bee Whole Oysters in water in stores http://www.bumblebee.com/products/oysters/bumble-bee-whole-oysters, but the can indicates product of Korea and info like this make me a bit leery http://www.fda.gov/Food/NewsEvents/ConstituentUpdates/ucm304600.htm

I buy the canned, smoked ones from Trader Joes. I prefer them because they're the only ones in olive oil.

I wish I could find a better source for oysters ... living inland US, it costs $30 to ship fresh oysters to my door. So, 16 oz $7 oysters cost $37. Canned oysters I've seen are from Korea, which I'm concerned may contain much more heavy metals.

I usually cook it through. I have no idea if that's correct. I'm cooking chicken liver - beef liver you may be able to eat more rare. I tried cooking it with onions last night, and realized there's a reason people eat liver that way. Much, much better than when I cooked it alone. Highly recommended.

What about colostrum?

Well, my appetite for liver is none at all. That doesn't add much in this case.

If you eat liver, you should also eat as much oysters, because liver will deplete your zinc, and you do need zinc to recover. Have each once a week.

just a question but how are you cooking your liver? i have some beef liver in the fridge that i haven't cooked before.

i agree with the colostrum. i started it in december after needing a few blood transfusions for my ulcerative colitis. i haven't had any bleeding since. that stuff is amazing.
