Liver is the prime organ of detoxification and the main organ involved in regulating the chemical levels in the blood. The main job of the function is filtering the blood coming from the digestive tract and then passing the purified blood to other parts of the body. Due to regular intake of unwholesome articles like alcohol and use of other modern medications (such as steroids and antihypertensive drugs etc.) for a longer duration of time and other causes lead to the gradual alteration in the liver tissues which result in the loss of functions of liver and ultimately leading to liver disorders. In this article we’ll discuss the common clinical features and general causes/risk factors for the liver disorders along with the best herbs for preventing & treating the liver disorders.  


The clinical manifestation of the liver disorder depends upon the degree of damage to the liver or severity or chronicity of the disease. However, the common clinical picture of various liver disorders may appear as yellowish discoloration of eyes and skin (jaundice), abdominal pain and swelling specifically in right hypochondriac region and severe itching, chronic fatigue, abnormal appetite (mostly reduced or loss of appetite) with difficulty in digestion resulting in multiple and frequent episodes of nausea and vomiting, darkening of the color of urine and edema in legs and ankles.

There are numerous causes that lead to liver disease. The most common causes/ risk factors for developing liver disease include genetic predisposition, heavy alcohol intake, obesity, diabetes mellitus (type 2), viral infections, unprotected sex, blood transfusion, overuse or long term use of modern medicines having hepatotoxic side effects, etc. 


Various liver disorders are categorized under the general term yakrit roga in Ayurveda. Yakrit rogas ranges from kamala (jaundice), halimak (green texture in stool; a complication of kamla), kumbh kamla (ascites due to jaundice/liver cause), yakrit vidradhi (hydatid cyst), yakrit vridhi (hepatomegaly), yakridalodar (cirrhosis of liver), yakritarbud (tumors of liver) and other such diseases. The main vitiated doshas involved are tridosha with the predominance of pitta.

It has been indicated in kamla (jaundice), yakrit-pleehavridhi (hepatomegaly-splenomegaly) and other blood disorders along with urinary tract related disorders and respiratory disorders. This herb is proven to have anti-inflammatory properties in various hepatitis conditions and has significant results in reducing the AST- ALT levels.

5. Punarnava

(Boerhavia diffusa) is the best herbal diuretic herb. It aids in removing the excess fat and fluid from the body.

6. Kasni
