Fatty Liver: Ayurvedic Treatment and Herbal Remedies

Introduction

Today’s lifestyle is such that it results in various metabolic disorders. One such disease is Fatty Liver, which has become one of the most common chronic liver disorders in various parts of the world. Fatty liver is excessive fat accumulation in the liver – with inflammation or without inflammation. Based on the inflammation and complication, Fatty Liver is of various grades. 

Fatty liver is strongly associated with various lifestyle disorders like Obesity, Diabetes, alcohol consumption, staying awake at night, etc. In India, one out of five people has an excessive accumulation of fats in the liver and one out of ten people is suffering from Fatty Liver disease. Fatty liver is reported in all age groups, even in children. In Ayurveda, Fatty Liver is correlated with Yakritodara (liver disorder) and Meda yoga (body fat disorder). 

According to Ayurveda, Agni plays an important role in the manifestation of Fatty Liver. Malsanchya, Mandagni and Madyapaan are the main culprits behind these disorders. NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) is correlated with Sntarpan Janya Vyadhi and its cause is related to Sthaulya i.e., Obesity. Fatty Liver is also considered Nidana Arthkara Roga in Ayurveda i.e., the disease refers to secondary conditions in various diseases like Sthaulya (Obesity), Parmeha (Diabetes), etc. Various Ayurvedic formulations and herbs give better and more promising results in Fatty Liver than modern medicine does.

If steps are not taken on time, this condition results in enlarged liver, Alcoholic Hepatitis, Alcoholic Cirrhosis.
