Hello folks,

This might sound a little odd... but...

Was wondering if anybody here with Celiac/gluten intolerance and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome noticed that they rather suddenly manifested "liver spots" (brown freckle-like marks) on the backs of their hands, wrists or fingers?

Had always thought this was a marker of "old age," but when I got C.F.S. in my 30s, my hands, fingers and wrists suddenly had these "old" markers on them. Have never found any reason for them to have appeared and they've never gone away. (Mayo Clinic suggests they're mainly caused by exposure to sun (see link below), but I wonder about that since they are ONLY on my hands and appeared almost overnight. They are definitely permanent and really quite large!)

Hulda Clark seemed to think the spots have something to do with "parasites"?!
And at least one online site does make a connection between the spots and liver function:

Another person thinks the spots are related to "liver overload":

Wondering if anybody else has had similar experience with so-called "liver spots"? Would be interesting to "compare notes."

Thanks.

Only thing I can share is that I had brown spots that looked like liver spots show up overnight. One morning I was showering and looked down to see my hands spotted with them. I freaked out! I had my sister look at them (she has had some removed) and she agreed that they looked like sun spots but couldn't explain the sudden onset. I did some googling and found that sometimes a chemical reaction with lemon (I think that what is was) and sunlight can cause them. I had been preparing a salad with lemon the day before. In my case, they resolved in about a week. Completely random experience.

I have Celiac Sprue and lots of liver spots. Exposure to sun does make tham darker and I can bleach out the color by taking parasite killing herbs - but the color comes back over time. Hulda Clark called these 'fluke spots' and from my years of experience in doing parasite exams in labs and further reading there is evidence that she was correct. One person using a modified Hulda Clark's zapper was able to eradicate his fluke spots although he thought that there was also a virus present in addition to the parasite. The usual fluke live cycle has a snail as an intermediate host and the fluke immature forms cause pigmented lesions in the snails. In humans, Flukes immature forms/larvae from ova which have hatched in the intestine can migrate to other parts of the body and it seems that some migrate to the skin. Humans carry several kinds of flukes in the intestine, liver and bile system and kidneys. Some flukes can burrow through the shin from infected water and water plants. Fluke ova are ingested in under cooked meat and raw fish. There are both herbal and medical treatments which are effective for flukes in the body but usually do not eradicate fluke spots. One herbal treatment uses a tincture of green black walnuts. I used this on fluke spots on one hand but not the other and it bleached out the color on the treated hand and now have fewer fluke spots on that hand.

Interesting responses. Thanks for your input.

Mari, I often get "sore spots" (reddish inflamed areas that are sensitive and painful) right on my knuckle areas. I noticed when I take BLACK WALNUT HULLS, these areas disappear almost overnight! Black Walnut is a blood cleanser and is rich in silica; is often included in "parasite-cleansing" formulas. (Funny: That sounds like you're giving parasites a bath! LOL)

Anyway, have noticed that the red inflamed spots go away and joints/knuckles no longer ache EVERY time I take as little as ONE Black Walnut Capsule (would take it more frequently but am allergic to the gelatin capsule and mixing the b.w. contents with a "carrier" like apple sauce seems like a hassle, so don't do it often); but the so-called liver spots seem permanent. They never fade on their own; may have to try some topical treatments to see if that makes a difference...
