Ayurvedic Remedies for Liver Failure? How are These Better to the General Medicines?

ABSTRACT

As quoted by an American philosopher William James that “Is life worth living? It all depends on the liver”. It perfectly explains the importance of liver. Liver is one of the most important organs and taking care of it must be our priority.

Nowadays, due to sedentary lifestyle and increasing trend of packed food items and the polluted environment results in various ailments which affect our liver the most. Various modern medicine that the person take for long duration including anti-diabetic drugs, anti-hypertensive drugs and all the steroids and immunosuppressants and drugs with hepatotoxic side effects. They, in turn, cause hazardous effects on our liver which leads to inflammation of liver slowly or gradually progressing to liver fibrosis followed by liver cirrhosis, thus resulting in complete loss of liver functioning i.e., liver failure. But in contrast to Modern medicine, Ayurveda uses lifestyle modification methods which include both Aahar (dietary changes) and Vihaar (physical activities) along with some detoxification methods and medicines which are herbal or herbo-mineral in origin, time-tested and are used in purified form as mentioned in the ancient text by Acharyas. These medicines have lesser side effects and much more therapeutic value than Modern medicine.

Let’s discuss these facts in detail and know how the person of liver failure can be treated better in Ayurveda?

INTRODUCTION

Liver Failure generally means gradual loss of all the functions that are performed by the liver and is considered as a complication of various liver related disorders rather than a separate disease. There are numerous types of liver diseases. But in the end, damage to the liver is likely to go on the same progression route. Whether the liver is infected with a virus, or autoimmune, chemical injury, in nutshell, the danger is the same – which ends up in liver failure. Liver cirrhosis, liver carcinoma, and liver failure are serious conditions that are life threatening. Once the person reaches these stages of liver disease, the treatment options get very limited i.e. use of immunosuppressant drugs, steroids and in later stages liver transplant (partial or complete) is left as an only option, which in turn has its very dramatic consequences.

Liver Pain

In Ayurveda, as there is no specific explanation for liver failure, so we can take liver failure as an updrava (complication) of all the yakrit rogas (liver disorder) which ranges from kamala (jaundice), kumbhkamala (ascites due to jaundice/liver cause), halimak (green texture in stool; a complication of kamla), yakrit vidradhi (hydatid cyst), yakrit vridhi (hepatomegaly), yakridalodar (cirrhosis of liver), yakritarbud (tumors of liver) and other yakrit rogas.

Some Interesting Facts About Healthy Liver

  • The liver helps in clarifying various toxins and thus fights infections and cleans the blood.
  • The liver also helps in food digestion and even acts as a storehouse of energy for emergency situations.
  • A healthy liver has the ability to regenerate itself if damaged, this property is rarely seen in any other body organ.

About Ayurveda

Ayurveda as a Science of life is focused on keeping the health of a healthy person intact and then is focused on how to treat the diseased person. Ayurveda is not only focused on treating the ailment with medicines, despite that the person had to follow a proper daily and seasonal regimen according to one’s prakriti. These regimens include various modifications in diet and lifestyle. Lifestyle modifications include waking up habits, sadvrit (good moral behaviors), doing yogasana & pranayama daily, brisk walking, and getting indulge in physical activities.

Let’s Discuss This in Detail.

General approach towards a person with Liver disorder in Ayurveda

The person having liver disorder must be examined on the basis of rog and rogi pariksha as mentioned our texts by Acharyas

Roga Pariksha includes the Nidana Panchak which helps in evaluating the stage and severity of the disease. These contains

Nidana also known as Hetu, are the causative factors or risk factors responsible for the origin or progression of the disease. For instance, as discussed above liver disorders are more prevalent because of the over use of packed food items/ unhygienic diet regimen, uncontrolled abuse of alcoholic products and the increasing trend of this sedentary lifestyle & lack of physical activity.

Poorvaroop means the prodromal symptoms (pre-clinical symptoms) are the initial indications that the disease is going to manifest soon. This stage is perfect for the treatment, in case of liver failure, hepatitis (inflammation of liver), or jaundice are considered as prodromal symptoms. Treating well at that stage with some alteration in lifestyle, and just by avoiding the Nidana sevan, the person can get rid of various liver disorders.

Roop means the stage of the disease in which the signs and symptoms of the disease begin to manifest. This stage manifests when the person continue Nidana sevan (i.e.  Taking/doing the causative/ risk factors). This is the perfect stage for disease to be well diagnosed and treated accordingly.

Upshaya means therapeutic test, in some cases where it is difficult to reach a conclusion and make a diagnosis of the disease that disease is checked on the basis of Upshaya-anupshaya. On the basis of the effects of Aushad, Aan & Vihar in particular, whether it is helpful or not, the treatment plan is decided.

Samprapti means Pathogenesis of the disease. It is the process which explains how after various Nidana sevan, the vitiated dosha affects the individual & causes various diseases. It is the most important step in making a proper diagnosis of the disease and thus is an important tool in the treatment as Samprapti-vighatan (breakage in the link of samprati at various levels) is known as Chikitsa (treatment).

These are the five tools to access the extent and severity of the disease. Now Acharyas had also mentioned various examination methods i.e. parikhas to evaluate the diseased person.

Rogi Pariksha:- After roga pariksha (evaluation of the disease), the Rogi pariksha is done. In context of Rogi Pariksha Acharyas had described various Pariksha vidhis that includes

1. Dwibidh Pariksha :-  a). Pratyaksha (Inspection) b). Anumaan (Assumption)

2. Tribidh Pariksha :- a). Pratyaksha b). Anumaan c). Aaptopadesh (as written in Samhitas by Acharyas)

a). Darshan (Inspection) b). Sparshan (Palpation) c). Prashan (Interrogation)

3. Chaturvidh Pariksha :- a). Prataksha b). Anumaan c). Aptopdesh d). Yukti

4. Panchvidh Pariksha :- Panchgyanindriya pariksha (examination of five senses i.e. sense of hearing, sense of touch, sense of vision, sense of taste and sense of smell

5. Shadvidh Pariksha: – Panchgyanindriya Pariksha and Prashan pariksha.

6. Astvidh Pariksha.

7. Dashvidh Pariksha.

Let’s discuss the Dashvidh Pariksh a given by Acharya Charka in Charka Vimaansthana, 8

This include

1. Prakriti Pariksha

The correct evaluation of a patient’s prakriti is the first step towards rogi pariksha. This pariksha includes evaluation of both physical & mental nature (manas & dehik prakriti). It will help in understanding the patient’s nature, making diagnosis, evaluating prognosis of disease, some clue about his Agni (digestive power) & thus accordingly can decide the diet & treatment plan that best suits the patient.

2. Vikriti Pariksha

Acharya Charka had guided Vikriti Pariksha by dosh-dushya-prakriti-desh-kaal-bal-agni etc. These tools will help in making a good diagnosis of the disease.

3. Saar Pariksha

The word “Saar” refers to the purest form of Rasadi dhatus. Saar pariksha is important in accessing the correct knowledge about a patient’s strength and age.

4. Sehnan Pariksha

Sehnan referred to the composition. Sehnan Pariksha here is the diagnostic tool to evaluate the patient’s physical construction & compactness e.g. Patient is sthool (obese), krish (feeble), madhyam shirr (healthy body).

5. Parman Pariksha

This Pariksha deals with the measuring of body parts of patients. Parman pariksha is described to be taken with Anguli parman in ancient era. But nowadays, we can correlate it with weight of body, height of person etc.

6. Satmaya Pariksha

The food- medicine, dietary-physical habits & the place of residence due to regular utility had become favorable & comfortable for the person is known as Satmya for that person. On the basis of Pravar, avar and madhyam this pariksha is divided into 3 types.

7. Sattva Pariksha

Satva refers to mental strength. It is also divided into three subtypes i.e. Pravar, Madhyam and Avar sattva.

8. Aahar Shakti Pariksha

It is the most important tool in diagnosis of a patient as it is the method to evaluate the patient’s Agni (digestive power). This is done in two steps i.e. Abhyaran Shakti (ability of person to eat) and Jaran Shakti (ability of person to digest).

9. Vyayam Shakti Pariksha

By accessing the Vyayam Shakti the person will get an idea about the person’s physical strength. It will help the Physician to decide the potency of a drug that can be used for the patient according to physical strength of the person.

10. Vaya Pariksha

Vaya means age, Age plays an important role in diagnosis as well as in deciding treatment plans. The age is divided into mainly 3 subgroups

  • Balyaavastha (Childhood i.e. from birth to 30 years)
  • Madhyamavastha (30-60 years of age)
  • Jeernavastha (61-100 years of age).

Thus, by using these 10 diagnostic tools on the patient, the physician will get a broad idea about the patient and his/her illness and he can very well decide the treatment, dietary & lifestyle modification plans accordingly.

CHIKITSA (TREATMENT)

As already discussed above the Samprapti vighatan (breakdown of pathogenesis at different levels) is known as Chikitsa. So, the first step towards treatment should be Nidana parivarjan i.e. avoidance of the possible causative/risk factors. In this disease, these include Ahitkar Aahar-vihar. Apart from this treatment methods include

  • Shodhan Chikitsa
  • Shaman Chikitsa
  • Pathya Apathya Aahar
  • Yoga asana & Pranayam

1. Shodhan chikitsa

(Detoxification Method) can be used on patients with Pravar Satva and Pravar Vyayam Shakti (i.e. in person having well mental & physical built). Virecahan & Basti are the best choice for Shodhan Chikitsa here and that too varies from patient to patient.

2. Shaman Chikitsa

These contain various herbal/herbomineral preparation mentioned in the texts. Those drugs include mostly the herbs which are hepato-protective in actions or immune modulator drugs.

PATHYA AHARA: The dietary habits\food items best suited for liver failure patients.

Fresh vegetables: Green leafy vegetables are the best suited for a healthy liver as it contain the magic molecule i.e. Nitrous oxide promotes health by aiding in regeneration of the damaged part of the liver and thus helps in recovering the liver patient.

These are easy to carry as an emergency source of energy i.e. whenever the patient feels hungry he/she can take them conveniently.

Millets: Use of millets is highly advisable to these patients instead of traditionally used grains i.e. wheat or rice. Barnyard millets are the choice of grains for liver disorders. Millets must be started in the form of Khammer i.e. fermented product of millet prepared in earthen pot.

CONCLUSION

Thus, in the end of this article, we can see that modern medicines use steroids and immune suppressing drugs for liver failure patients which in turn proves dangerous to liver as well to other body organs also. Despite that, certain other modern medicine that we use for instance antibiotics or even Paracetamol has also shows some side effects on the liver. So, it is better to go with the above mentioned Methods of Ayurveda. Along with that, Ayurveda defines a better lifestyle to improve quality of life of the Liver failure patient and thus widening the scope of getting well with lesser risk. Instead of going for a liver transplant, the patient should follow these regimens strictly to get rid of Liver Disorders efficaciously.

What are The Stages of Liver Failure? – Its Ayurvedic Treatment

Abstract

The Liver is a vital organ and performs various functions like help in digestion and boost immunity. Liver failure is when the liver is not able to perform its function easily. Liver Failure has 4 stages but the symptoms are misunderstood with various other liver diseases due to which the problem increases. We have discussed 4 different stages of liver failure, causes of liver failure, various signs and symptoms, some effective herbal remedies, and some home remedies are also shared which can help in boosting liver functions.

Introduction

The Liver performs various functions like making blood proteins that aid in clotting, transporting oxygen and supporting the immune system. Consumption of Alcohol, genetics, and infections can all result in liver disease or damage. Liver failure happens when the liver is not able to work well to perform its functions properly. Liver failure can be acute or chronic. In the acute liver, failure liver stops working in a few days but in chronic liver failure occurs gradually over time due to some disease. According to the CDC (centers for disease control and preventions) cases of liver failure increased by 31% (from 20.1 per 100,000 to 26.4) between 2000 to 2015 among the age group of 45-64 years. For the age group of 45-64 years is increased by 21% for men (from 29.8 to 36.2) and 57% for women (from 10.8 to 17.0).

Stages of Liver Failure

Ayurvedic Aspect of Liver Failure

Ayurveda is a traditional and ancient form of medicine. Ayurveda believes in the balance of body, mind, and soul. This balance depends on the balance of Dosha Vata, Pitta, Kapha. The Balance between these three Dosha is believed to be a healthy state of body but in an imbalance of these dosha leads to various problems like; Liver is a place of Pitta dosha.

Skin inflammations are Pitta-based problems which can be the result of liver imbalance. The liver is made up of five bhutaagnis (digestive fire) that are similar to the five elements of prithvi (earth), water (Jaal), Agni (fire), Vayu (air), Akasha (space), each Agni is specializing in digestion of that particular element in the food and helps in transforming Rasa Dhatu (clear part of plasma) into blood tissue. If digestive fire flame burns too high or low then Rasa Dhatu will not be able to convert into blood tissue, and toxins will start entering the blood.

This all process is governed by Pitta Dosha, if Pitta is not balanced then it can affect the blood and skin which result in inflammatory problems like; acne, cold sores, etc. toxins will start storing in the liver can lead to allergic problems, hypoglycemia, constipation, fatigue, etc. if the imbalance in Pitta dosha continues for longer duration it will lead to serious diseases of liver, like; hepatitis, jaundice, cirrhosis, or liver failure.

Stages of Liver Failure

There are 4 Different Stages of Liver Failure

1. Inflammation

The first sign of liver failure is inflammation in the liver. When your immune system responds to foreign substances it results in inflammation in the liver. A condition that causes inflammation is fatty liver, hepatitis including autoimmune hepatitis. Sometimes the liver shows some symptoms like pain in the stomach in the liver area or sometimes feels the heat in the area. But in some cases there no such signs. If liver disease is diagnosed at this stage it can be treated successfully and inflammation goes away.

2.  Fibrosis

If the inflamed liver is left untreated it will cause the liver to scar. These scar tissues replace healthy liver tissue. This process is called fibrosis. The liver is not able to work properly because scar tissue is not able to work as healthy tissue. When the liver is not able to work properly then toxins and fat cells start building up in the liver which can block blood flow to the organ. At this stage, the liver can be treated successfully.

3.   Cirrhosis

If the stage of fibrosis is left untreated then the patient is at risk of the next stage called cirrhosis which means severe scarring of the liver. At this stage soft healthy tissue replace by hard scar tissue.Cirrhosis can lead to various complications, including liver cancer.

There are Various Symptoms of Cirrhosis

  • Water may build up in your legs or abdomen.
  • The skin may become itchy.
  • The Patient may bleed or bruise easily
  • Skin and eyes may become yellow color, a condition called jaundice
  • Toxins can be build up in your brain, causing problems in concentration, sleeping, memory or other mental functions
  • Blood vessels leading to liver, blood may back up due to blockage.

Cirrhosis may lead to several complications including liver cancer. In the stage of cirrhosis, the focus is to control the progress of the scarring and treat severe symptoms and complications.

4.  End-stage Liver Disease

If the cirrhosis stage is left untreated it will lead to liver failure. In this stage, the liver lost its ability to function and not able to heal itself. Liver failure can be acute or chronic. Acute liver failure strike just in 48 hours as a reaction of a drug overdose or poison. Chronic liver failure is the result of cirrhosis of years. Liver failure gets worse, it can affect mentally and physically. The Patient may feel confused and disoriented. The Patient may experience diarrhea, weight loss rapidly or loss of appetite these symptoms can cause by various other factors so it is difficult to diagnose liver failure.When the liver failure stage is diagnosed patient should get treated as soon as possible.
