AyurvedaIn ayurveda, liver cirrhosis is also known as yakrit vriddhi. It is mainly caused due to alcoholism, fatty liver diseases and hepatitis. Cirrhosis limits the important functions of liver, that include regulation of protein, production of bile to absorb vitamins and fats and elimination of toxins and pathogens. Even though, it is an irreversible disease further complications can be avoided by early treatment. Ayurveda offers gentle and effective treatment for liver cirrhosis.


Ayurvedic Treatment for Liver Cirrhosis

  • Arogyavardhini is an effective ayurvedic medicine for liver. It is a compound of katuki and calx that protects the patient from other effects of cirrohosis such as jaundice. Arogyavardhini works by reviving the atrophied cells. This medicine is available in both the tablet and churna form.
  • Katuki is another helpful drug. It is available in powder form. Mix one teaspoon of katuki powder with equal amount of honey and take it thrice a day. This medicine facilitates the liver to produce more bile thus relieving liver congestion and pain. Besides this, it also stimulates affected tissues for normal functioning.
  • Take one teaspoon of bhringaraja juice thrice a day. If you find that taste is bitter then you can mix little honey to it. Bhringaraja is useful for patients with infantile liver cirrhosis.
  • Vasaka, kakamachi and triphala are some other ayurvedic medicines that can help.
