Pathya Ayurveda offers a highly effective ayurvedic treatment for liver diseases.

The liver is one of the most vital organs in the human body. It is responsible for a variety of critical body functions which include controlling metabolism, making proteins, detoxifying chemicals, and it produces bile (which dissolves fat).

The liver has a remarkable ability to heal itself from minor damage and stress that results from wear and tear, exposure to toxins and other risk factors like obesity or alcohol abuse. However, this damage can become irreversible and progressive when the liver is repeatedly abused and not given a chance to recover.

Type of Liver Diseases

When liver functioning gets disturbed, a number of diseases may arise. As a person develops liver disease, they may lose vital functions, putting them in potentially life threatening situations.

Most Common Liver diseases include:

  • Alcohol related liver disease

Ayurvedic Treatment for Liver Diseases

So in short, liver is a fiery organ, and that why anything, which is fiery or hot in nature is not good for liver. Since liver is the main organ where metabolism of fat happens, fat deposition in the liver impairs every metabolic activity.
