Liver Disorder

The most common diseases of the liver are cirrhosis and fatty liver. Fatty liver is the accumulation of excess fat in the liver cells. Fatty liver can damage the normal physiology and anatomy and lead to serious complications such as cirrhosis. It is a slow progressing disease in which healthy liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue and eventually preventing the liver from normal functions. Risk factors for fatty liver disease include increased body weight, diabetes and elevated triglyceride levels.

Causes
  • Eating excess calories causes fat
  • Obesity

  • High triglycerides
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Malnutrition
Ayurvedic perspective

Liver is the seat of Pitta (fire) and is the organ which aids the process of digestion and assimilation. Imbalance of the liver is the root cause of improper digestion and this will affect other tissues adversely. Liver disease causes improperly absorbed nutrients circulating in the blood. Treatment of liver involves the purification of blood and digestion. Treatment of liver disorders is done with purging therapies, zero alcohol and alkaline diet.
