What is Fatty Liver?
Fatty liver and Liver cirrhosis are commonly known liver-related diseases. The liver plays a crucial role in our overall health. It performs several important metabolic functions. While it detoxifies and gets rid of various toxins from our body, it also functions as an accumulator to store different vitamins which are useful for a healthy life. The liver has its own unique working system. But with the consumption of excessive fat foods, irregularity in the meals or too much gap between the two meals, and wrong/unhealthy lifestyle, we hold the liver function to ransom. It ceases to function to its best capacity. As a result, the body’s metabolism process slows down and the disease called fatty liver occurs. There are some other culprits who contribute to causing fatty liver. (i) excessive anger or hotheadedness, (ii) being over-anxious (iii) over-analytical (iv) consumption of excessive sweet and oily/spicy food, and (v) lack of exercise are the other causes of fatty liver.
Many people are haunted by this question. They see quite a few people around of the same age group and with similar lifestyles or diet habits, yet they don’t face this problem. Obviously, therefore Ayurveda suggests a more critical and in-depth assessment, which includes the naad–pariksha and assessment of temperamental traits and genetic attributes according to birth-month related health factors of an individual.
How can you overcome it?
Fatty liver disease is reversible. Some important measures involve consumption of proper food, at regular intervals (Ayurveda advises a unique diet or food according to birth-month-related health factors and occupational requirements). Ayurveda also prescribes certain important exercises and yogasanas as well as special oil massage before exercise, and special Ayurvedic medicines for about 3 to 6 months which tone up the liver function. Some DOs & DON’Ts tips are given and easy Panchakarmas to be performed at home are taught. For fatty liver patients, 2 to 7 days residential camp at our Health Resort is most useful. Subsequently, the patients are advised to have a sonography test, Liver Function Test (LFT), and Lipid Profile test every three months. With these measures and treatment plans, the patient can completely recover from the Fatty Liver problem.
