Tired, jaundiced and nauseas? You may have Gilbert's syndrome ( a genetic liver issue) which may affect between 7% to 25% of the population depending on which part of the world you are from. Over time this condition will potentially impact your hormones and further diminish your liver's ability to detoxify. Medicine does not consider the condition serious but the symptoms experienced by some people demands an appropriate level of attention. Holistic practitioners consider the liver as key to good health.
