Ayurvedic approach to Hepatitis :

Ayurveda considers liver disorders or inflammation in liver is a disorder of Pitta – Ranjaka Pitta.

Liver is the engine of human body. Yakrut – the Sanskrit name of liver means – ‘Ya’ – circulation; ‘krut’ – action. It is the seat of fire – anger, envy, jealousy and hatred. It aids in digestion and filtration process in body. It scans and identifies the toxins in body and prevents them from entering into the blood circulation. It secretes bile – the digestive juice to break down the fat. Liver is the seat of ranjaka pitta which performs following functions :

  • Ranjaka Pitta in liver disintegrates the haemoglobin into ‘heme’ and ‘globin’. ‘Heme’ is the bile fluid.
  • ‘Ranjaka’ in Sanskrit means ‘one who colours’. It is the one which gives colour to blood, plasma, urine and feces.
  • The fire of Ranjaka Pitta is responsible for the biochemical systems associated with the metabolism and gives the thrust to heart to push blood to all corners of the body.
  • It maintains the hemoglobin level which helps to carry the prana vata and viana vata to transport the oxygen to all organs and tissues of body

Disorder in Ranjaka Pitta is hepatitis. Ayurveda describes four types of kaamala (Jaundice or Hepatitis) –

  • Shakhasrita – It is a curable and minimal aggravation of pitta and kapha
  • Kumbha Kaamala – It is very high pitta and difficult to cure.
  • Panaki – Last stage of Kaamala
  • Haleemaka – advanced stage of anemia.

According to Ayurveda, Hepatitis includes all system of body – musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and skin. Treating Hepatitis in Ayurclinic includes an integrated treatment plan.

  • The root cause is diagnosed and cleared
  • Dietary recommendation that pacify Pitta
  • Clearing the blocked undigested impurities using herbs
  • Forceful emotional disturbances cleared through meditation.
  • Panchakarma

If an ancient wisdom can sort down the colouring factor of our blood even before 3000 years ago when dissection or modern factors were not available, their methods of cure should also be accurate!
