Remedy for Cirrhosis & Fatty Liver Treatment Ayurvedic Naturally 

Fatty liver disease is a condition caused due to an excessive accumulation of fats in the hepatic cells. Since the most common cause of this disorder is the consumption of alcohol, fatty liver disease is categorized into two major types: alcoholic fatty liver, which is caused due to the consumption of alcohol and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which is caused due to factors other than alcohol consumption. The natural treatment for fatty liver using Ayurvedic herbs or medicine may benefit both of these forms of fatty liver disease.


Fatty liver disease results in abnormalities in the various metabolic processes occurring in the liver. The liver is a vital body organ that plays a major role in fat metabolism. It is also responsible for transporting fats to other body parts and removing them from the blood.


The fatty liver causes disturbances in the process of handling the fat by the liver cells. As a result, the hepatic cells produce an increased amount of fat, and not enough is eliminated from the body. Due to this, there is a deposition of excess fat in the liver. The use of the best herbs for the liver, as mentioned below, can help to regulate fat metabolism and prevent the development of fatty liver.


What Are The Causes Of Fatty Liver?


  • Alcohol consumption
  • Preexisting conditions like obesity and diabetes
  • Wilson's disease
  • Abetalipoproteinemia
  • Lipodystrophy
  • Intravenous nutrition
  • Prolonged starvation
  • Side effects of some medications like corticosteroids, tamoxifen, and methotrexate


What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Fatty Liver?


Patients with fatty liver disease usually remain asymptomatic during the initial phase of the illness. The symptoms begin to appear only after the condition is advanced. Most of the symptoms of fatty liver occur due to complications like cirrhosis. The patients may develop symptoms like:


  • Jaundice is caused by the inability of the liver to remove bilirubin from the blood.
  • Excessive bleeding due to the reduced amount of blood-clotting proteins produced by the liver
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding caused by portal hypertension
  • Oedema
  • Psychological and neurological symptoms like loss of memory, altered consciousness, and the declining ability for rational thinking due to encephalopathy.


Proper treatment of fatty liver using natural herbs coupled with a diet for liver disease recovery is important because this condition is known to cause serious complications. If left untreated, it can lead to cirrhosis, which, in turn, can lead to other complications such as gastrointestinal bleeding, hepatic failure, and even liver cancer.

Fatty liver can also increase the risk of life-threatening non-liver diseases such as myocardial infarction and cerebrovascular stroke. Managing liver disease using natural remedies can block the progress of this disease and prevent these complications.


Natural Treatment For Liver Damage


Most patients diagnosed with fatty liver or cirrhosis prefer a natural treatment for liver damage as it is safer and more effective in improving the ability of the liver to function normally.


Ayurvedic treatment for liver cirrhosis using herbs can enhance the natural ability of the body to heal and repair and, thus, help to boost hepatic functions. Herbal medications also possess hepatoprotective properties that help to protect the liver against further damage. Ayurvedic doctors recommend a diet for liver disease recovery that can help control weight and blood pressure and reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The natural treatment for liver cirrhosis allows the patients to recover and prevent life-threatening complications.


Herbal Medicine For Fatty Liver


The herbal medicine for fatty liver given below can help manage this disease by producing a range of actions. These herbs protect the liver from the effect of alcohol and toxins, reduce inflammation in the liver, enhance this organ's functions and help repair the damaged hepatic tissues.


Sharpunkha (Tephrosia purpurea): Sharpunkha is one of the best natural liver remedies that may help to treat fatty liver by producing an anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective action. It also helps to prevent enlargement of the liver and improves digestion.


In research presented by Punjabi Harpriya et al. Sharpunkha is very useful in the treatment of liver cirrhosis. This herb has a Rasayana effect on the liver and thus prevents further damage to the liver cells and also helps in regeneration. After treatment with sharpunkha and some other herbal formulations (Bhumyamalaki and bhringaraja), the liver function improved, which was evident by a reduction in serum bilirubin, serum alkaline phosphatase and prothrombin time as well as an increase in serum protein (mainly serum albumin) and haemoglobin after treatment.


Kakamachi (Solanum Nigrum): Kakamachi is another potent hepatoprotective ayurvedic herb. It supports liver functions and prevents complications like cirrhosis.


Bhumi Amalki ( Phyllanthus niruri, Euphorbiacea): Bhumi Amalki is naturally beneficial for fatty liver treatment in ayurveda. It contains various active alkaloids, saponins, and tannins, which help to boost liver function and protect it from further damage. It also helps to clear harmful toxins from the liver.


Punarnava (Boerhavia Diffusa): Punarnava is a highly effective Ayurvedic Medicines for alcoholic liver disease. It helps to prevent liver enlargement and products a regenerative effect on the hepatic tissues. This helps in the faster healing of the damaged liver. It also rejuvenates the liver and enhances its functions. It aims to protect the liver cells against further damage. Regular use of this herb may be beneficial for preventing fatty liver complications.


Kutki (Picrorhiza kurroa): Kutki is known for its strong hepatoprotective properties. It has the ability to protect the liver tissues against the bad effects of alcohol and toxins. It helps to strengthen liver functions and relieve the symptoms of fatty liver, even when used in small doses. Kutki also aims to stimulate the removal of fat deposits from the liver. It has been proven to reverse the hepatotoxicity caused due to drugs like Paracetamol.


Research by Jit Narayan Sah highlights the uses of Picrorhizza kurroa in the treatment of liver disorders because of its anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, free-radical scavenging, anti-allergic, anti-anaphylactic and anti-hepatitis-B surface antigen activity.


Another study by A K Panda also highlights the uses of Picrorhiza kurroa in treating liver disorders. This herb's active constituents effectively prevent liver toxicity and improve hepatic glycogen preservation. It is effective in hepatitis-B infection and has a promising effect on bilirubin, SGOT, and SGPT. It also promotes liver regenerating activities by restoring cytochrome.


Kalmegh (Andrographis Paniculata): Kalmegh is another potent ayurvedic liver tonic. It helps to restore liver functions and helps patients suffering from fatty liver to recover completely.


The above research also mentions the benefits of Andrographis paniculata (Kalmegh) in treating various liver disorders. The plant extract of this herb can repair hepatic injury and restore cellular permeability, reduce the toxic effect of ethanol-induced liver toxicity and prevents enzymes leakage into the blood circulation. A recent study showed that andrographolide attenuated concanavalin A-induced liver injury and inhibited hepatocyte apoptosis. It has been reported to be efficacious in chronic hepatitis B viral infection.


Natural Remedies For Liver Cirrhosis


Natural remedies for liver cirrhosis are prescribed, keeping in mind the Ayurvedic concept of tridosha. According to this, fatty liver occurs due to the imbalance in the Pitta dosha that is primarily related to the metabolic processes in the body, such as digestion and elimination of toxic products.


Over time, the pitta dosha imbalance results in an accumulation of Kapha that reflects on the processes involved in growth and weight management. Ayurveda recommends using herbal remedies and a fatty liver treatment ayurvedic diet to improve the functions of the liver and maintain its structural integrity.

I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

    Vishnu Datt Sharma- C.E.O

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!
