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.

Can not having regular bowel movements cause the stomach to be bigger than usual because of all the junk that is in there?

First thing is to stop junk food, mirchi, masala food etc. Without that it will be very difficult for you to regular bowels. Take timely meals and include salads that is raw vegetables with each meal. Have regular physical activity like walking for a distance of 6 kms every day in the morning and doing yoga exercises in the evening. Take plenty of water i.e. 2.5 - 3 litres of water in a day. If you are student you can have physical movement like walking, strolling in between your classes. If you are working donot be chair bound for long duration, move about once in an hour like going to washroom/to fetch water etc. Depending on your day life you evolve a method/cause for the movements. You have to regularly and meticulously follow the above guidance otherwise you will face lot of trouble. Your target should be to bring down your weight to 40 kgs as per your height. Donot fast, its more harmful. Have small frequent meals. Good luck.

In many cases, simple changes in your diet like taking high fibre foods and lifestyle can provide relief from irritable bowel syndrome. Although your body may not respond immediately to these changes, your goal is to find long-term, not temporary, solutions. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

It is a pilonidal sinus or a fistula in ano. Most probably will require surgery. Consult a general or gi surgeon.

Constipation: is due to an incorrect lifestyle and irregular eating patterns, not taking enough fluids, sedentary lifestyle. Foods that are heavy and difficult to digest, as well as oily, spicy, fried, and junk foods are the culprits. Eating food in a disturbed atmosphere or in front of the television and being awake late at night all lead to bowel disturbance. Psychological factors like stress, anxiety, fear, jealousy, and sorrow also play an important role. Diet & lifestyle advice: increase intake of fiber, especially fruits and cooked vegetables. An apple or pineapple/pomegranate each day is helpful. Drink 7-8 glasses of lukewarm water each day. Take daily morning and evening walks for at least 20-30 minutes each. Eat whole grains /nuts/sprouts and muesli in breakfast avoid refined foods like white flour, bread, pasta, pizza, white rice, or high protein foods like cheese, meat and cold foods like ice cream or chilled drinks take meals in a relaxed and calm atmosphere. The food should be warm and freshly -prepared, as cold food slows the digestive power. Take 30 ml/6 tsp of syp piclin thrice daily after meals with lukewarm water.

Tobacco can itself cause acidity, lybrate-user. You need to quit tobacco fully. Psychiatrist or you yourself can take the help of nicotine replacement gums, pastules and patches. You can also try with buproprion over the counter tablets. The dose and other psychosocial methods will be attached to it by the manufacturing company. Only varinicline needs psychiatrist's prescription. More the number of attempts to quit, better is your understanding of relapse situations. Work on them one by one. All the best.
