Yakrit Plihantak Churna - Wonderful Herbal Remedy For All Liver Disorders

liver, wonderful, herbal remedy for all liver disorders

Liver is a large, meaty organ that sits on the right side of the belly. It is a beautiful half moon shaped organ and in Ayurveda it is compared to Lord Shiv who has half-moon over his head.

An interesting statement in Yajurveda Reveals, "Yatha pinde tatha brahmande, yatha brahmande tatha pinde".

That is ---As is the human body, so is the Cosmic body (Universe), as is the cosmic body so is the human body"----- OUR HUMAN BODY IS MINI COSMOS

So keeping these statements valid--we can say with strong conviction that liver is one organ that is so much like Shiva in Universe, As Shiva consumed toxic Poison to save the Deva and Universe, It is believed that when Lord Shiva consumed Halahala, the toxic poison, his body temperature started rising. Because the moon is cold in its demeanor, Lord Shiva placed the moon on his head to lower his body temperature.

In the similar manner we have liver --moon shaped organ in our body that is important sit of PITTA--- Pitta is primarily composed of the fire and water elements. It is the source of all heat in the body. Not surprisingly, the liver and the gallbladder are both considered important sites of pitta.

Liver is one important organ that works day in and day out to keep our body healthy, Everyone believes that Heart is what keep our clock ticking but the fact remains that we can keep human body alive today on ventilators but if liver -kidney fail, everything fails you.

As in Hindu literature --- The crescent moon is shown on the side of the Lord's head as an ornament. The waxing and waning phenomenon of the moon symbolizes the time cycle through which creation evolves from the beginning to the end.

Similarly Liver is the Shiva inside human body that symbolizes the time cycle inside---metabolism going inside, it hold the complete mechanism inside, the enzymes produced and the nutrition passed on to all the cells of body , be it heart or brain. They all rely on Liver for all nourishment sent to them.

These days we see that people are relying too much on packed food and artificial flavors. The custom of consuming junk food is increasing day by day and making our future sad and diseased especially our future generations.

Fresh fruit and juices have been replaced by preservative diet and color, young generation rely too much on colorful attractive packing of junk food and snacks. The INSTANT culture--of Maggi and similar tastes are ruling the campus of universities all over.

Be it any occasion people prefer to eat out --- they enjoy special time with family like birthday party, marriage anniversary, etc. eating JUNK. They easily become used to taking soft drinks, wafers, chips, noodles, burgers, pizza, french-fries, Chinese dishes, and other varieties of fast food available in the market. But this JUNK is harmful and is a slow poison that we are giving to our body.

If we look at the dictionary meaning of JUNK it means old and discarded stuff but people fail to realize that we are polluting the beautiful gift of GOD, our BODY with waste and unwanted items.

When these waste or toxic items are bombarded on our LIVER----THIS humble organ takes all the chemical reaction on itself and tries to squeeze out the nutrient value even from waste.

But Alas---slowly the saturation point of LIVER is reached and it is unable to feed itself on toxic stuff and starts giving signs of---IT IS ENOUGH, I CAN"T take it more.

That is the stage when----our Ultrasound reports come out with diagnosis like-- Fatty liver, Liver cirrhosis, NASH, Jaundice and the list seems endless with interesting titles of disease and google is flooded with information about them.

But the cause is simple---We need to just water the Moon shaped organ with cooling stuff---as its original nature is cooling.

We need to give the balanced diet of coconut water, fresh fruits, salads, green leaves and right herbs like Punarnava, Bhrigraj, Gokshru, Ghrit kumari, Kasni, Kalmegh.

Yakritplihantak churna is a very balanced combination given to cater to LIVER at its best!!!

Ayurvedic Treatment for Colovesicular Fistula - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

A Colovesicular Fistula is an uncommon condition characterised by an open connection between the large intestine (colon) and the bladder which allows the fecal matter from the colon to enter the bladder causing infections which are very painful as well as other complications.

The function of the colon is to release stool through the rectum. In this condition, the colon sits above the bladder. The function of the bladder is to store urine before it is released through the urethra. There is a separation of colon and bladder through a thick wall of tissue.

Trauma or surgery to this part of the body can cause the fistula to form. When an opening develops, it results into colovesical fistula.

colovesicular fistula, colovesical fistula

It occurs when a phlegmon or abscess extends or ruptures into the adjacent bladder. It can sometimes be managed conservatively because patients do not want an operation or sometimes they are at high surgical risk.

This condition is treatable. However, it is so unusual so there is a limited amount of information available to manage this painful condition.


  • The most common symptom of colovesicular fistula is pneumaturia which occurs when the gas from the colon mixes with the urine. Patient experiences bubbles in the urine.
  • Painful or burning sensation when the person urinates and recurrent Urinary Tract Infections which develop due to an irritation of the bladder but nearly half of the patients of colovesical fistula complaint about this problem.
  • When fecal matter mixes with urine, there is an appearance of brownish or cloudiness in the urine.
  • Blood in the urine.


More than half of the cases of colovesicular fistula are the result of diverticular disease. The most common cause of colovesicular fistula is diverticular disease followed by malignancy and Crohn's disease.

Other Causes Include:

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease particularly Crohn’s disease.
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Surgery that involves the colon or bladder
  • Cancer of the other surrounding organs


Colovesicular Fistula is diagnosed with an imaging test known as Cystography. In this procedure, a thin and flexible tube with a camera is inserted at one end into the bladder. The camera relays the image of the bladder wall to a computer so that the doctor can diagnose fistula.


Treatment generally includes being fed through the veins so that the intestines do not have to work, prescription of antibiotics as well as steroids, catheter being inserted into the bladder to drain fluid that may have seeped into it from the colon.

Herbal Remedies for Hemochromatosis (Iron Overload / Excess Iron)

hemochromatosis, excess iron, iron overload

Hemochromatosis is a metabolic disorder which results in the accumulation of excess iron in the body's organs. This too much iron load on the body causes damage such as liver disease, heart problems and diabetes. The liver is the organ most affected by hemochromatosis, because of its relatively large blood flow.


There are two types of hemochromatosis- primary and secondary.

Primary Hemochromatosis

It is caused by inherited genetic defects. The HFE gene helps to regulate the amount of iron absorbed from food. C282Y and H63D are two known mutations of the HFE gene. The most common cause of primary hemochromatosis is C282Y defects.

Secondary Hemochromatosis

It usually occurs due to the result of another disease or condition that causes iron overload such as getting a lot of blood transfusions in people with severe anemia.


Symptoms of hemochromatosis generally appear after the age of 40 and usually after significant iron accumulation. Symptoms appear earlier in males than in females due to the loss of iron through menstruation in women. Following common symptoms are associated with hemochromatosis:

Fatigue, weakness, lethargy, apathy, weight loss, feeling tired, abdominal pain and joint aches.

It May Also Cause Later Signs And Symptoms:

  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes)
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Diabetes
  • Heart failure
  • Liver failure
  • Reproductive problems


Iron overload can be detected by a blood test, liver biopsy, liver enzymes test, Genetic Diagnostic Test. Blood Ferritin levels is generally correlated with the amount of iron stored in the body. A liver biopsy is a most accurate test for diagnosing Hemochromatosis by using a sample of liver tissue. These tests can help to identify liver damage. Doctors recommended to do these tests if

  1. Your family member has this disorder.
  2. You are having symptoms listed above.


Ayurveda is the best and ancient method that helps to treat any disorder in a natural way. Imbalance of vata, pitta and kapha doshas mainly leads to health problems.
