  • Fatty liver disease is generally due to the accumulated deposits of triglyceride in the liver. It starts as a simple fatty liver but gradually degrades further finally leading to the liver failure. The initial stages of the fatty lever are known as steatosis which deteriorates to steatohepatitis and fibrosis which further complicates in the terminal stage to cirrhosis and/ or hepatic cancer.

    The fatty lever condition is known as hepatic steatosis also though in Ayurveda it is known as Yakrt Roga. The chances of getting this ailment are more in obese persons. The condition is preventive with lifestyle management but once the situation worsens then it is a life threatening issue and can be a fatal condition. Drinking alcohol is also a prominent reason for fatty liver condition and that is the reason why doctors ask the patients to refrain from alcohol. Further, obese persons having resistance to insulin are vulnerable to get this condition.

    In Ayurveda the treatment of fatty lever condition is attempted in a holistic way and the people are requested to adhere to certain lifestyle changes which are very crucial to lessen the fat deposition in the body. The drug of choice for this ailment is Arogyavardhini Va?i and Triphala Guggulu along with pathya which is also a part of the treatment. Pathya means the Ayurvedic dietary regime (what to take and what not to take) and physical exercises associated with it. Pathya is the art of taking type of food and keeping a control on our unnecessary food indulgences. In our Ayurvedic scriptures these things are mentioned very clearly, though we are forgetting them as we are not in continuous touch with them.

    In Ayurveda there is a great emphasis on the natural things and people having fatty liver condition are advised to reduce weight, take fruits in plenty, include legumes in diet, avoid oily and fried things, avoid junk food, consume home grains, opt for fish or lean meat items etc. These measures help a lot in maintaining a good lifestyle which is an important premises to keep the fatty liver condition at a bay.
