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 have been suffering from IBS for quite a few years. My last resort was to see the doctor in Pure Herbal Ayurveda Clinic. Dr. Saini has helped me get my gut back to a itself. I am able to eat Gluten now and my gut issues have reduced quite a lot. I have more energy now.

  • 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.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

    Christine Medley

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.
