Here is a true story about how one doctor defied medical tyrants out of desperation to cure a married couple from liver failure!
In 1977, John and Eunice were admitted to hospital in Cleveland, Ohio after ingesting deadly amanita mushrooms. They were diagnosed with acute liver failure and with liver transplants not a common solution, death was unavoidable. 
The doctor over-seeing John and Eunice assigned a medical resident of Case Western Reserve who had never had one single patient die on his watch called Dr Berkson.
Dr Berkson made contact with Dr Fred Bartler at the National Institute of Health hoping he could advise him on this extremely rare situation. He suggested Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA).
Dr Bartler cited that animal studies had shown it helped with severe liver damage. 
The next day they began administering intravenous alpha lipoic acid to John and Eunice and its effect was miraculous!
The alpha lipoic acid stimulated rapid liver regeneration and within two weeks John and Eunice fully recovered, went home and lived for another 36 years and well into their late 80’s!
So here is the villain bit of the story…
Rather than being added to the medical journal as a revolutionary and speedy recovery story…
Sadly, Dr Berkson was severely criticised for not following medical protocol and was told to ‘quit fooling around with alpha lipoic acid!’
But it doesn’t stop there with the recriminations he suffered for being a ‘misfit’ in the hospital system…
Other patients at the hospital who similarly were on death's door with liver failure... under Dr Berkson’s care were administered alpha lipoic acid against hospital requests because he couldn’t bear to see them die.
Because of Berkson’s misconduct he was accused of harming these patients.
The hospital then went on to alter the records of these patients while continuing to ostracise and humiliate Berkson.
Eventually, Berkson opened his own private practice where he passionately continued to save patients with liver disease.
With the incredible support of Dr Bartler, Dr Berskon continued his work with alpha lipoic acid with amazing success.
Here’s the scariest thing about Berkson’s story…
Without his courageous endeavour to listen to his smart doctor instincts, many ethical doctors would be deep in despair about how to heal their patients liver before it’s too late!
Because still to this day Berkson's breakthrough for liver disease is seen as controversial.
But of course Big Pharma doesn't want you to know about alpha lipoic acid because they're not fleecing their pockets with millions of dollars of our precious and hardworking money!
So what is alpha lipoic acid?
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant.
It has a unique ability to neutralize toxins, chelate heavy metals and protect against DNA damage. 
Humans only produce alpha lipoic acid in small amounts. That’s why many men and women end up resorting to supplements to optimize their intake.
Red meat and organ meats such as liver are great sources of alpha lipoic acid, but vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes, spinach, and my favourite brussels sprouts also contain it too.
The issue is getting the high dosage of alpha lipoic acid that is needed; therefore supplements can stack up to 1,000 times more alpha lipoic acid than food…
It’s the concentration that is necessary to get the full benefit that foods just can’t do.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant that reduces liver fibrosis associated with hepatitis (liver inflammation). It can promote liver regeneration and can reverse liver cirrhosis (which conventional medicine previously considered impossible).
Alpha lipoic acid is fat soluble which means that it can penetrate deep into the cells to exert its healing effects. 
What is really exciting is how multi purposed alpha lipoic acid is.
It’s an incredible supplement that several studies have shown reduce inflammation in the body, which is the precursor to the resistance to weight loss.
High levels of inflammation is really bad when you are trying to lose weight because they impact hormone levels, which directly impact your fat cells.
We all know that inflammation is a ‘bad cop’ but many people don’t really know why when you are trying to lose weight. .
Your fat cells do more than just give you a jelly belly or cellulite. They are responsible for hormonal signals that tell your brain to burn fat and increase metabolism.
High levels of inflammation lead to dysregulation of these hormones and contribute to the condition known as leptin resistance. 
Leptin resistance is one of the main causes of weight loss resistance, which basically makes weight loss almost impossible. 
As you can see, alpha lipoic acid is not just beneficial to liver health but also great for weight loss.
Now that’s a double bonus!
Oh I almost forgot to share with you another interesting weight loss study on alpha lipoic acid…
Animal studies indicate that it can reduce the activity of the enzyme AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which is located in your brain’s hypothalamus.  
When AMPK is more active, it may increase feelings of hunger.
However, on the other side of the coin, suppressing AMPK activity may increase the number of calories your body burns at rest. What was incredible was the animals who took alpha lipoic acid burned more calories  
Another analysis of 12 studies found that people who took alpha lipoic acid lost an average of 2.8 pounds (1.27 kg) more than those taking a placebo over an average of 23 weeks
