Today, we’re going to talk about how your liver could potentially cause stiffness in your body. If the liver isn’t working right, it may cause joint stiffness to the point where you feel like you have arthritis. 

Cholestasis is a condition where your bile is backed up and not flowing freely through the bile ducts. There is a combination of too much cholesterol and not enough bile, causing the bile to back up, which then causes inflammation. 

If there is a problem with the bile ducts, you can experience a lot of pain and stiffness, especially on the right side of the body. 

If you don’t have enough bile, you also won’t be able to absorb and utilize vitamin D, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Other fat-soluble vitamins will also not be available to you, which can lead to pain, stiffness, and other issues. 

The best potential remedies for stiffness:

• Purified bile salts (take 1-2 on an empty stomach in the morning and the afternoon) 

• Get on the Healthy Keto diet 

• Do intermittent fasting 

• Eliminate omega-6 fatty acids from your diet 

If you have osteoarthritis from an old injury that’s causing your stiffness, you may want to apply a technique called the Egoscue Method.
