Best Herbs & Food to Deal with Hepatitis
|Dr. Vipul Sharma|
# Note : There are many home remedies for hepatitis. Family physicians maintain, seven different hepatitis viruses cause inflammation of the liver and a blood test is mandatory to arrive at a precise diagnosis. Moreover, some herbs maybe contraindicated for an inflamed liver and may interact negatively with any medications being taken. So, it’s important to keep your qualified healthcare professional in the loop while resorting to any home remedies for hepatitis.
BEST HERBS :
# Burdock and dandelion are important for cleansing the liver and the bloodstream.
# Studies have shown licorice to be effective in treating viral hepatitis, particularly chronic active hepatitis, due to its well-documented antiviral activity.
# Milk thistle extract contains silymarin, a flavonoid that has been shown to aid in healing and rebuilding the liver. It can be taken in capsule or alcohol-free extract form. Take 200 to 400 milligrams three times daily.
# Phyllanthus, an Ayurvedic herb, is useful for hepatitis B. After an initial bout with the virus, you can become symptom-free but still remain a carrier of the disease. This herb is said to eradicate carrier-status hepatitis B in some cases.
# Schizandra is a Chinese herb used to protect the liver.
# Scutellaria, also known as Baikal skullcap or Chinese skullcap, is a Chinese herb that is a powerful antioxidant.
# Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory.
# Other herbs beneficial for hepatitis include black radish, green tea, red clover, and yellow dock.
# Especially when symptoms are acute, take care to replace
# Avoid fatty foods entirely, and limit protein intake to between 3 and 6 ounces (100 to 200 grams) a day.
# Avoid stale or moldy bakery products and grains. At least in laboratory studies, the fungus byproduct aflatoxin amplifies the carcinogenic potential of hepatitis infection.
# Avoid alcohol in all forms, including that found in drugs and flavorings.
# If you are taking interferon for hepatitis B, make sure your doctor orders blood tests to monitor iron (ferritin) levels in your blood. Iron deficiency cuts the success rate of interferon treatment roughly in half. Your doctor will recommend treatments that can bring iron levels up to normal.
