Excess fat cells accumulating in the liver lead to a fatty liver disorder. Although it’s a curable disease, it may deteriorate over time because of negligence and lack of proper treatment.
Ayurvedic View on Fatty Liver:
According to Ayurveda, the liver is the origin of one of the principal energies known as ‘Pitta’. Pitta has hot and light characteristics and handles metabolic and biochemical functions that produce energy and heat. ‘Kapha’ has a cold and stabilized nature. When ‘Kapha Dosha’ rises above normal levels, it suppresses ‘Pitta’ and its function in supporting the liver. Therefore, it can be inferred from this correlation that fatty liver disease results from elevated ‘Kapha Dosha’.
Causes of fatty liver contribute to:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Alcohol Consumption
- High Triglycerides Levels
A well planned Ayurvedic diet including several herbs can help treat fatty liver disease and promote liver function. These include Aloe vera gel, a Fiber Rich Diet, a Low Sugar Diet and more.
