The liver is like your body’s engine and processing plant that is largely responsible for the generation, digestion, and metabolism of various essential compounds, as well as for the filtration of blood and distribution of vital nutrients.
Viral hepatitis is an inflammatory disease of the liver, as there are several types. Hepatitis A is transferred through contaminated water or food. The other two types of hepatitits – B and C, are very dangerous.
Cirrhosis is a condition in which your liver is scarred and permanently damaged. Scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue and prevents your liver from working normally. Causes include alcoholic liver disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, chronic hepatitis C, and chronic hepatitis B.
Now a days non alcoholic fatty liver is very common due to our life style and obesity. Ayurvedic treatments are highly beneficial in curing non alcoholic fatty liver and early cirrhosis.
