Diet and Lifestyle Advice to Help Deal with Jaundice

The liver helps the body take nutrients from food and turn them into energy. It processes everything one drinks or eats. When an individual is ailing from jaundice, eating a healthy diet and having a fixed routine will allow the liver to work efficiently.

Include the following foods in your diet:

  • Have at least 8 glasses of water. It helps flush the ama (toxins) from the body.

  • Eat fruits that enhance the digestive agni, like papaya, pineapple, and mango.

  • High-fibre foods such as oatmeal, berries, and almonds are great at fighting jaundice.

  • Herbal tea in moderation reduces inflammation and improves liver health.

  • Fresh vegetables help limit damage caused to the liver and eases the digestion process

  • Intake of lemon juice, radish, tomato juice, bitter gourd juice, buttermilk, and coconut water is extremely beneficial.

Here are a few other things you should keep in mind when dealing with an illness like jaundice:

  • Have a balanced diet, but avoid raw vegetables.

  • Opt for a salt restricted diet. This inhibits fluid retention and helps alleviate swelling in the abdomen and legs caused by water retention.

  • Take sufficient bed rest. Do not indulge in a lot of physical activity

  • Add neem leaves to you bath water

  • Limit your sunlight exposure

  • Light yoga can also help recover from jaundice
