5 Homeopathic Remedies for Fatty Liver

B.H. M. S.

5 Homeopathic Remedies for Fatty Liver

The liver is a vital organ within the body, which functions as a filter for the blood that comes from the digestive system. One of the conditions that afflict this organ is fatty liver, which occurs due to the accumulation of triglycerides within it. There could be multiple reasons behind this, such as alcoholism, obesity, pregnancy, hepatitis among many others. Homeopathy has some great treatments for fatty liver disease, depending on the cause.

1. Nux vomica: One of the major reason of developing a fatty liver is alcoholism. While drinking moderate amounts of alcohol isn't harmful, the tendency to drink very regularly will lead to fatty liver disease. In such cases you may feel pain in the abdomen, especially a few hours after eating. You may also suffer from constipation with cravings for fatty and spicy food. Nux Vomica is thus prescribed in these conditions.

2. Phosphorus: Fatty liver has many symptoms, which may manifest differently in different people. Many people complain about indigestion and sour belching. Your liver area may be painful and you may also vomit. You may constantly crave for foods such as ice-creams, juices and cold drinks. In such cases you may feel weak after passing stool. Phosphorus is a great remedy in such cases.

3. Chelidonium: This is one of the best overall remedies for fatty liver. Some of the symptoms where Chelidonium may work are as follows:

  • Pain in upper right abdomen
  • Enlargement of liver
  • Constipation
  • Jaundice along with fatty liver
  • Feeling excessively weak
  • Craving for hot drinks and hot foods

4. Calcarea carb: If you are obese or fairly overweight and suffer from fatty liver, calcarea carbonica can be very effective in treating the symptoms. Some of the symptoms exhibited by the patients where this medication is effective would be a yearning for eggs, profuse sweating and sensitivity to air if it's cold.

5. Lycopodium: This medication is very effective in treating fatty liver disease, especially if you suffer from gastric issues and acidity. You may have symptoms like, bloating of the stomach, burning of the esophagus when belching or burping and pain in the upper right abdomen. You may also exhibit cravings for hot drinks and sweets. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate-user. What you describe look like urinary tract infection. It could also be other more serous types of infections. Best idea is to show to a doctor in person for clinical examination and at least get a urine test done to see if there is infection. Your doctor might advise a ultra sonography of the abdomen also. Hope this helps.

Gut Feelings: Eight Steps to Better Digestion

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Poor digestion can put a cramp in anyone’s style. But sometimes it’s tough to know what might be causing the problem. Here’s a quick way to make sense of bad gut feelings, along with some steps you can take to improve your digestive health.

Your gut is your guardian

Your gut is a bit like a watchdog. It’s a tough and loyal guardian, and very smart.

Its job is to welcome healthy nutrients and life-giving water, while protecting you from various toxins and irritants that may try to sneak in alongside them.
Most of the time, your gut has great judgement. But occasionally, it’s a bit hasty. Every now and then, it overreacts. And sometimes, it’s just not strong enough to fend off the “bad guys.”

What kind of bad guys are we talking about? Well...there are dozens. You can learn more about them in this in-depth article. But in the meantime:

too many over-the-counter or prescription drugs
too much sugar or refined carbohydrates
too much alcohol
“bad” bacteria
parasites, yeast
stress (acute & chronic)
environmental contaminants.
When your gut hurts

Any of these can irritants can lead to bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea.

If you’re suffering from symptoms like these, it means your “enemies” are too strong. Your guardian has been overpowered and simply can’t protect you any more.

Symptoms of poor gut health can also show up outside the gut.

Have you ever been bothered by unexplained headaches, joint pain, fibromyalgia, skin problems, sleep disturbances, or fatigue? Any of these might be due to poor gut health.
The good news is that with the right nutrition, you can strengthen your gut’s defences and provide a stronger barrier. Not only will your gut be happier, but you’ll also enjoy better overall health.

Eight easy steps to a happier gut

It may be tempting simply to mask your symptoms with medications like over-the-counter antacids or prescription drugs.

But soothing the symptoms won’t make your underlying problem go away, and may actually make things worse.

Instead, try these simple nutritional strategies. Followed with a bit of care, they can help you figure out the source and treat it at the same time.

Eat when hungry, stop when satisfied. Believe it or not, this simple rule can save you countless hours of misery (and might help you lose unwanted pounds).
Eat slowly. Chewing is important for enzyme release and breaking food into particles that the gut can manage.
Eliminate any foods or drinks that bother you. Aren’t sure what those are? Try an elimination diet to find out. Common culprits include sugar alcohols, refined grains, MSG, and dairy products.
Add real food. Fruits, vegetables, beans, tea, and coffee are good sources of gut-strengthening flavonoids. Beans, peas, whole grains, nuts, seed, fruits are high in fibre, which helps to ensure regular elimination of toxins.
Balance your bacteria. Good bacteria strengthen the intestinal barrier. Choose 1-2 probiotic/prebiotic rich foods or drinks and eat them often. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Recover well. Sleep, stress management (like meditation or yoga) and exercise are vital to help us control inflammation, which in turn can improve gut health. But remember that too much exercise is taxing on the body. And give your gut a break: avoid big meals before exercise.
Reduce your chemical burden. Choose organic when you can, try not to heat foods in plastic containers, avoid food colorings and fish high in mercury.
Supplement wisely. A few options to consider include glutamine, digestive enzyme supplements, Vitamin D, Omega-3s, iron, turmeric. But be sure to address the underlying problem first. You can ask me doubts, privately

Hy doctor. I found a little poke on my anus hole. What can cause for it. Any fungal infection or something else.

You may be having fissure or papilla or pile so you need to be examined by a general surgeon and proctoscopy to be done to know what exactly it is, by the time keep your stool soft by taking plenty of fluids orally and high fibre diet.

I am 5'3" and 116 pounds. When I eat I seem to get full very fast. It doesn't take much food to make me feel full but I still have the desire to eat. I get bloated almost every single time I eat. I eat a wide variety of foods and I try to eat healthy as much as I can. But why am I feeling so full so fast? And is there anything I can do to prevent or ease the bloatedness?

Lybrate-user, my suggestion is if you do some yogasanas pertaining to abdomen like pawan muktasana, mandukasana and abdominal exercises plus regular brisk walking for over 1 hour a day, this problem can be overcome. If need be you may take some digestive enzymes. Thanks.

Sir, yesternight I saw blood coming from my anus when I was in toilet .it has happened to me for the first time ever. My friend advised me to wait before consulting any doctor so I have not consulted any doctor yet. I think it may be due to have fried chilli in extra amount . Also I had panipuri (type of fast dish in India) which was really spicy. So my friend said to wait me for this .so what should I do. I should wait or go to a doctor because it has happened to me first time only. I have never seen such type of blood coming out of my anus . Also i'm feeling weak due to bleeding. When it happened then I was in the condition that I would vomit but I could not .so sir kindly provide sufficient answer that I could survive. I really fear whenever I see blood . Thank you sir.

Hi Mixing two teaspoonfuls of ghee in a glassful of milk and taking this once a day acts as a liner inside the gut and will heal all the destruction caused by the high flow of Pitta. Take pranacharya aceno syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take pranacharya aceno capsule 1-1 twice a day. And avipattikar churna 1-1 gm with warm water. Take pranacharya udar bhaskar kshar churna twice a day with warm water.
