Jaundice, aka yellow fever, yellows the white of the eyes, the skin and bodily fluids. Mentioned are the home remedies that can help in reducing the symptoms.
Barley powder helps flush out ama
Aloe vera juice is rich in antioxidants
Sugarcane juice daily provides immunity
Jaundice is a medical condition resulting from the rise of excess of the pigment bilirubin that obstructs the bile duct, yellows the skin, the white of the eyes and the bodily fluids. A pitta imbalance impairs the blood and tissues of the liver and blocks the channels of the body. The pitta, in the form of bile, is thrown into the blood again, leading to jaundice.
Here are a few home remedies that help reduce the symptoms of jaundice
Mix together 1 spoon each of roasted barley powder (jau) and honey. Have this with a glass of water twice a day. It helps flush out the toxins (ama) from the body, reducing the intensity of the condition.
Make a paste of basil leaves. Add 1 tsp of it in a glass of radish juice. Have this juice twice a day for 15-20 days. It is beneficial for the liver and helps subdue the symptoms of jaundice.
Take a tsp of Aloe Vera juice with black salt (Kala namak) and dry ginger (Adrak) every morning for about 10 days.
Extract the juice of bitter gourd. Take ¼ cup of the juice early in the morning daily.
Drink a glass of sugarcane juice twice a day. It strengthens the liver.
Boil Indian gooseberry (amla) in a saucepan. Mix the pulp with the remaining water. Add honey once it cools down. Drink it 2-3 times a day. This juice is rich in antioxidants that help enhance liver health.
Apart from these, a diet that includes fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains and nuts is great for those suffering from jaundice. However, these home remedies aside, you should definitely consult a Jiva doctor to find long lasting relief from the condition.
