Treatment of Biliary Atresia in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies


Bile ducts are thin tubes that carry bile from the liver to the stomach. The bile carried by them is helpful in digestion. Due to blockage of the bile duct, several disorders occur that lead to increased bilirubin levels in the body. The blockage of bile ducts is known as Biliary Atresia. This condition is rare but can be fatal if not diagnosed and managed on time. In this article, we will look at various causative factors, symptoms, and ayurvedic management of Biliary Atresia.


Biliary Atresia is a condition in children in which the bile duct is blocked. The bile cannot flow through the ducts and builds up in the liver itself. That can cause various liver disorders including liver damage, jaundice, etc.

There are types of Biliary Atresia

  • Perinatal Biliary Atresia
  • Fetal Biliary Atresia

Premature children are at greater risk for developing Biliary Atresia. A baby with Biliary Atresia usually seems healthy at birth but the symptoms start occurring after two weeks to two months. Two types of surgeries are used to treat this condition, which may include liver transplant and Kasai procedure. Ayurvedic treatment has a great effect on its management. Both treatment options are discussed further in the article. Choose the best for your child’s safe and healthy future.

Ayurvedic Aspect

In Ayurveda liver is known as ‘Yakrit’ and disorders related to it are called ‘yakrit rogas’. The excess formation of bilirubin is due to an imbalance of tridosha in the body, which will cause excessive production of bilirubin. The imbalance of tridoshas in the fetus will cause damage to the newborn’s biliary system/bile ducts. All these conditions together will cause the disorder of Biliary Atresia. The treatment includes herbs for the management of the liver and normal production of bilirubin in the liver.


The causes of Biliary Atresia are unknown, but scarring and damage to bile ducts can occur due to-

  • Infections at birth
  • Autoimmune problems
  • Genetic mutation


Due to blockage of bile ducts, the bilirubin cannot get out from the liver and is not excreted from the body. It gets collected in the liver and causes these symptoms

symptoms of Biliary Atresia

  • Jaundice
  • Light colored stools
  • Yellowish urine
  • Inflammation in the abdomen
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Liver failure (in some cases)

These symptoms look like other liver conditions like jaundice but the proper diagnosis is needed to rule out possible causes and disorders.


Diagnosis is confirmed by a pediatrician after a full examination of the baby. Diagnosis may include one or more of the following diagnostic methods-

  • Physical examination
  • Liver function tests
  • Ultrasound
  • Liver biopsy
  • Hepatobiliary scan

Differential Diagnosis

Symptoms of Biliary Atresia may correlate with symptoms of the following conditions, but proper diagnosis is a must to rule out the exact condition-

  • Lipid storage disorder
  • Caroli disease
  • Alagille syndrome
  • Neonatal hemochromatosis
  • Congenital herpes simplex virus
  • Congenital cytomegalovirus


  • Bleeding in liver
  • Blockage in intestines
  • Hole in intestine
  • Liver failure


In modern pathology, there is no Treatment for Biliary Atresia. Surgery is the only option for its management. The surgical procedure for the treatment of Biliary Atresia is known as the ‘Kasai Procedure’.. In this surgical procedure, the damaged bile ducts are removed and replaced with a piece of the small intestine that will allow the drainage of bilirubin into the small intestine directly from the liver. However, the success rate is low in many children, and the recurrence rate even after the surgery is high. This can be subjected to loss, with side effects, and undergoing surgery has several side effects. Ignoring side effects it still has chances of reoccurrence. Then what is the option for management besides antibiotics? Well here is the solution. Ayurveda is the solution to your problem. Ayurvedic herbs and therapies help you to recover from this condition and prevent its recurrence. Let us have a detailed look into it.
