Get Ayurvedic Treatment For Liver & Gallbladder Diseases

Have you paid attention to your health lately? Noted any signs and symptoms of distress, concerning your lower abdomen? Be mindful that you don't need to wait till the last moment to rush for appropriate medical care to address your health. As experts in Ayurveda, we suggest you keep a good check on your health for the sake of vitality and longevity, in the form of a disease, pain-free life. And if you are too caught up with life, we at Jiva Ayurveda, stand with you as your reliable healthcare partners. 

Talking about good health and longevity, well, it would be ridiculous to ignore the liver and gallbladder, two organs that play a very important role in metabolism, detoxification and immunity of the body.

Case in point, are you aware that the Liver is the second largest organ in the human body, weighing around 1.5 kilograms? It produces and secretes bile, which is further stored in the gallbladder. In case you are aware, the liver is one organ that doesn’t have CapillariesHence the blood has to move through the organ via the Sinusoids that contain Kuppfer cells responsible for Phagocytosis.

The Bile secreted from the liver moves via the bile ducts, entering the left and right hepatic ducts. Once in it, the left and right ducts merge and the bile then exits the liver through the common hepatic duct, which further joins with the cystic duct and completes the transportation of bile to the gallbladder for storage. This blog will be your guide to understanding how Ayurvedic treatment for liver and gallbladder diseases like gallbladder stones, gallbladder blockage, jaundice, Fatty Liver Diseases, Liver Cirrhosis etc works and how Jiva can be your gateway to recovery from them.

What is the Ayurvedic philosophy about liver and gallbladder diseases? 

In Ayurveda, every disease is caused by an imbalance in the three doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When they start to go out of balance due to many reasons, it can develop the ideal environment for liver and gallbladder diseases, such as gallbladder blockage and gallbladder stones. 

To be specific, pitta dosha aggravation leads to an increase of heat further causing inflammation causing gallbladder stones and jaundice. Likewise, aggravation of Kapha Dosha usually leads to sluggishness and accumulation of Ama (toxins), making the body prone to Fatty Liver Diseases.

We at Jiva Ayurveda possess the expertise to treat a plethora of Liver and Gallbladder Conditions, for instance, 

  • Gallstones
    These are noted as hardened deposits of cholesterol and bile, leading to immense abdominal pain and signs of inflammation can also be noted.

  • Jaundice
    A common symptom of jaundice is yellowing of the skin and eyes, due to a buildup of bilirubin (waste product) in the blood.

  • Fatty Liver Disease (FLD)
    Excess fat accumulation in the liver, often with no initial symptoms.

  • Liver Cirrhosis
    Irreversible scarring of the liver due to chronic damage.

What are the symptoms of Liver & Gallbladder Diseases?

One cannot achieve optimal health without paying adequate attention to the liver and ensuring it functions properly, attending to the responsibilities is supposed to person in the human body. That is why it is highly important to be observant and keep a check on the early symptoms of Liver and gallbladder diseases. As experts in healthcare and leaders in Ayurvedic treatment for the Liver and gallbladder, we at Jiva Ayurveda suggest you pay attention to your health and be mindful of the following common symptoms of liver and gallbladder conditions.

  • Any kind of pain in the abdomen, usually post eating fatty foods

  • Suddenly the skin starts to turn yellowish. Also, the sclera of the eye becomes visibly yellow.

  • The body starts to feel nauseous and a sense of fatigue kicks in, sometimes pushing the body to vomit.
