Fatty Liver Disease: Ayurvedic Remedies

Just like how excess fat in the human body leads to obesity, excess fat accumulating in the liver cells leads to fatty liver disease. It is one of the most common liver conditions that affect a wide range of populations globally. Although fatty liver is a curable disease, it tends to deteriorate due to the proper lack of treatment and negligence. If you are trying to find an ayurvedic treatment in Dubai, you are at the right place.

 

What is fatty liver disease?

Fatty Liver disease or FLD occurs when liver cells store an abnormally large amount of lipids, resulting in liver inflammation and increasing the risk of hepatitis. FLD hampers the liver's natural ability to mobilise and remove fat from the body, leading to a negative cycle of cause and effect.

As treatments vary based on numerous factors and an individual’s ‘Prakriti’, Our ayurvedic centre in Dubai offers the appropriate medications and treatments for your specific complaints.

 

Types of fatty liver disease

Hepatic Steatosis is mainly two types 

  • Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease 

  • Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease 

While the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease affects normal liver function, alcoholic fatty liver disease is distinguished by symptoms such as jaundice, fever, spider veins, and an abnormally high WBC count.

 

Who is at risk?

The cause of the nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is unknown. However, researchers point out it is more common in people who are: 

  • Obese

  • Type 3 diabetes

  • Take certain medications, such as corticosteroids and some cancer medications.

  • Have high Blood pressure

  • Certain infections, such as hepatitis C

 

Symptoms of Fatty Liver Disease 

Symptoms for fatty liver varies person to person and often show no symptoms until the disease progresses to Cirrhosis. If you do have symptoms, it will include:

  • Abdominal Pain

Such pain can be caused by a variety of reasons. However, if it lasts for several days, it might be one of the fatty liver symptoms. 

  •  Weight loss 

It is typical to experience unexpected weight loss and exhaustion. However, if you're losing weight without intentionally trying, it might be a sign of a fatty liver. However, don't make any assumptions in your decision. Consult a doctor to determine the exact cause of your weight loss and have any necessary tests performed.

  •  Oedema

Bloating and oedema can both cause a swollen abdomen. Get tested for fatty liver disease if it is accompanied by swollen legs, fatigue, and abnormal weight loss.

  •  Yellow sclera and pals skin

These are the common symptom of jaundice, one of the fatty liver-associated diseases that can be fatal if not treated promptly and must thus be taken seriously.

 

Ayurvedic Treatment for Fatty Liver Disease 

The liver is known as one of the principal energies known as ‘pitta’ in Ayurveda. FLDs are caused by an imbalance of ‘Kapha’ and ‘pitta dosha’ or elevated ‘Kapha dosha’ in pitta-dominant regions, according to Ayurveda. Ayurvedic treatment of  Fatty liver and most liver disorders include Panchakarma, and procedures like Virechana, along with herbs like Bhumyamalaki (stonebreaker), and Guduchi ( heart-leaved moonseed).

Virechana is the ideal Detox-Shodhana Karma for liver disorders in Bahu Doshavastha and Srotorodha. Hepatoprotective herbs are also effective and safe for treating any type of liver disease.

When Fatty Liver advances to the next stage and Dhatus become involved, treatment should focus on Prasadana of Rasa and Rakta, as well as Yakritshothahara Chikitsa.

Ayurvedic formulas of ‘arogyavardhini’ rasa and ‘vasaguduchyadi kashaya’ are also used to treat fatty liver because they are hepatoprotective (liver protective) and improve liver function.

Ayurvheritage provides a wide range of herbal formulations for treating physiological and psychological health concerns among individuals of all ages and genders becoming the perfect partner for ayurveda in Dubai.

 

Lifestyle and dietary changes for fatty liver patients as per Ayurveda 

Ayurveda recommends certain types of foods to be included in the diet of a Fatty liver patient.

Do’s 

  • Meals on time 

  • Freshly prepared food

  • Consuming low-fat high-fibre food

  • Drink plenty of lukewarm water.

  • Practice praanayamas and yogasana’s like gomukhasana and dhanuraasana.

Don’ts 

  • Avoid consuming curd, cauliflower, black gram, potatoes, pickles, milk, fish, artificial sweeteners, jams and icecreams 

  • Do not drink Alcohol

  • Do not smoke

  • Avoid aerated drinks, bakery food and excessive spicy/fatty food items 

  • Avoid salty and sour food.

 

Foods to promote healthy liver 

  • Brown rice, oats and whole wheat should be included in the diet.

  • Oils containing Omega 3 fatty acids are also recommended.  

  • If meat cannot be avoided, the person should eat fat-trimmed meats and chicken. Seafood high in essential fatty acids, such as prawns, salmon, sardines, and tuna, may also be consumed.

Diseases affecting liver function have a significant impact on overall body functions and wellness. Ayurvedic herbs and formulations used to treat fatty liver have hepatoprotective properties, which not only help prevent and manage liver diseases but also promote normal liver function. Virechana panchakarma therapy aids in the elimination of vitiated doshas in the body, which is the major cause of fatty liver. Following dietary requirements and exercising regularly aids in disease management as well as overall health.
