Hepatitis Virus Treatment

Hepatitis is a medical term referring to inflammation of the liver. It can occur due to viral infection or when your liver is exposed to toxic substances. It often leads to jaundice, anorexia and malaise.

Hepatitis can be acute or chronic.

Acute hepatitis occurs when it lasts for less than six months. When hepatitis stays for a longer time, it is chronic.


  1. Virus: This is the most common contracting Hepatitis. The virus causes inflammation of liver which leads to the breakdown of a number of body systems.
  2. Alcohol and other toxins: Alcohol and certain prescribed medications cause swelling in the liver.
  3. Autoimmune disease: The immune system stops working and begins destroying its own tissues. It attacks the liver because it considers the liver a foreign object.

Types of Hepatitis

Hepatitis A:

Hepatitis A is the most common type of viral hepatitis. It occurs due to the hepatitis A virus. It is common in the areas where sanitation and sewage disposal is poor. This disease is mostly spread through ingestion of contaminated food and water.

Symptoms of this infection include:
  1. Nausea
  2. Fever
  3. Jaundice
  4. Digestion disorders

According to Ayurveda, it is the elevation in pitha which leads to the hepatic problems. The Ayurvedic treatment for hepatitis A virus aims at reducing pitha in the patients. In most of the cases, the liver heals within six months without any harm.

Below is the follow up for hepatitis A:

  • Take Rest: During the initial stages, people with hepatitis A infection may feel very tired and have less energy.
  • Manage nausea: Nausea causes imbalance in your diet. Shift to small meals rather than eating full meals. Lay more emphasis on eating high-calorie foods. If vomiting occurs, drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.
  • Avoid alcohol and use medications with care: Alcohol consumption can put additional strain on your liver. Also it might have difficulty in processing certain medicines. If you have hepatitis, don’t drink alcohol as it can cause more liver damage.

Hepatitis B:

Main cause of Hepatitis B is hepatitis B virus. This is generally found in blood and body fluids, such as semen and vaginal fluids, so it usually spreads during unprotected sex. The infection is unpleasant to live with but usually causes no lasting harm. However, a small number of people may develop a long-term infection. This is known as chronic hepatitis B.

Symptoms of this infection include:

  1. Loss of appetite
  2. Abdominal pain
  3. Fatigue that persists for week or months
  4. Jaundice (Yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes)

In the treatment of hepatitis B ayurvedic medicines are as effective as allopathic drugs. There are several medications for cure of hepatitis B virus. These include arogya pachkalyan, arogyavardhini vati, arogya hepatic care, arogya neon and arogya herbal tea.

Some Home Remedies to decrease Hepatitis B virus:
  • Extract of Amla is beneficial to reduce hepatitis B.
  • Make a kwath of Triphla & Trikatu equally and mix it with honey. Consumption of this mix will reduce Hepatitis B.
  • Mix 3 gms Black Salt(Kala Namak) in 100 gms of Tomato juice and take 2 times in a day.
  • Take 20 gm juice of raddish with leaves three times in a day. This will reduce the Hepatitis B virus.

Hepatitis C:

Hepatitis C virus causes this disease. This is most commonly found in the blood and to a lesser extent in the saliva or vaginal fluid of an infected person. It is particularly concentrated in the blood, so it is usually transmitted through blood-to-blood contact. Hepatitis C often causes no noticeable symptoms. As a result so many people are unaware if they are infected.

Some of the Symptoms of this infection include:
  1. Sore muscles
  2. Fever
  3. Vomiting
  4. Dark urine

Ayurvedic remedies for the treatment of Hepatitis C help balance pitta. Medicines such as kabuki, kalmegha, haritaki, and Guduchi discard the excess pitta and toxic substances from the body. They recover the infected liver.

Ways to Prevent Hepatitis C Infection:
  1. Do not share personal items like razors.
  2. Do not share needles, syringes, or other equipment when injecting drugs.
  3. Be careful if you get a tattoo or body piercing. The equipment may have someone else’s blood in it.
  4. Practice safe intercourse.
  5. Always cover your cuts and scratches with appropriate dressings.
