Ayurvedic Treatment of Hepatic Steatosis

The word Hepatic means "liver" and Steatosis means "infiltration of liver cells with fat". Liver is consider as the second largest organ in the body. The normal liver weighs 1.4 to 1.5kg in males and 1.2 to 1.4kg in females. Size of liver in males is 10.5cm and in females is 7cm but, when its size increase 5 to 10 percent of normal, it leads to Hepatic Steatosis.

Hepatic Steatosis

If too much fats accumulate in the liver, it lead to a condition known as "Hepatic Steatosis". The condition is also termed as fatty liver. Hepatic Steatosis occur when there is accumulation of fatty acids in the form of triglycerides in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes.

Planet Ayurveda offers wonderful Ayurvedic treatment for Hepatic steatosis that is quite effective and result giving. We shall discuss that later, once we understand about hepatic stenosis in detail!

It is a reversible condition that can often be resolved with lifestyle modifications. In many cases, hepatic steatosis has no symptoms. The food we eat changes into fat with the help of liver. These fat are known as triglycerides that gives energy to the body and form new cells in the body.

Triglycerides when get collected in the liver cells it lead to hepatic steatosis.


1) Alcoholic Steatosis:

People that drink lots of alcohol are more prone to this disease. In alcoholic people, liver changes its way to breakdown and stores fats in the body. Among this you can have more chance of Alcoholic Steatosis if you are obese, consuming more iron in body and suffering from Hepatitis C. If a person is chronic alcoholic, it produces toxic metabolites that cause hepatic steatosis.

2) Non-Alcoholic Steatosis:

The reason behind this condition may be due to genetic factor, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, viral hepatitis, weight loss, medications or bacteria in small intestines. In late pregnancy hepatic steatosis may occur in some case.

  2. Nausea
  3. Fatigue

Hepatic Steatosis is diagnosed by various tests mentioned below:

Ayurveda helps to rule out any disease on "Tridosha's" theory. These three dosha are commonly known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha that move throughout our body via blood media. Liver is known by "Yakrit" in ayurveda. When the Pitta get imbalanced in liver cells, it leads to accumulation of kapha in the liver. Kapha dosha cause free fats to get stick to the liver and cause channel blocks that lead hepatic steatosis.

Ayurvedic treatment of Vasculitis (Wegener's granulomatosis)

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis, eons ago called Wegener's granulomatosis, is an estate which is associated with nose, sinuses, throat, kidneys and lungs. In this chronic disease, blood vessels of involved regions become inflamed, particularly known as vasculitis. No one knows the exact reason behind it, it is assumed as an autoimmune disorder in which the body's defense system attacks and destroys its own normal cells and tissues. Specifically 'granulomas' are found in the affected tissues as these are localized nodular collections of abnormal inflammatory cells. That's why this disease is termed as Granulomatosis, refers to the presence of granulomas. It is common in all age groups including children but mostly occurred in middle-aged or older people.

Inflammation can affect various parts of the body such as respiratory tract including nostrils, windpipe, sinuses etc. It can even damage the organs as inflamed blood vessels cause the disrupted blood flow to the organs.

This disease is rare due to which sometimes it become difficult to determine the exact frequency of the disease. But with authentic diagnosis and treatment, this dilemma can be paralyzed to some extent.

If there are chronic diseases around us then god has given us cures of these turbulences as well. Ayurvedic herbs, other medications, yogic exercises etc. are proved to be a boon to mankind. This health illness is very serious but can be kept under control if one uses these magical, mystical techniques, and can lead normal life.

Depending upon the body parts affected, Vasculitis (Wegener's granulomatosis) causes a range of syndromes, these include –

  • General evidences are fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, joint pain, weight loss and high temperature.
  • Marks associated with nose, ear and throat are nosebleeds, crusts around the nostrils, blocked or running nose, face pain, earache and hearing loss.
  • Cough doesn’t go away in this body illness, it is related with lungs problems, moreover includes wheezing, chest pain and shortness of breath.

  • Eye problems like conjunctivitis (irritated eyes), swollen eyelids and blur vision.

If it is diagnosed lately or left untreated then might lead to permanent damage to some parts of the body. Let me explain you with an example; if Granulomas are found in nose, then it can permanently change the shape of the nose. Nasal ulcerations and even bloody nasal discharge can happen.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Renovascular Hypertension

Renovascular Hypertension is also called 'Renal Hypertension'. It is a condition in which High blood pressure (greater than 130/80 mmHg) caused by narrowing of the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys. Narrowing or blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the kidneys is called 'Renal artery stenosis.

Renovascular hypertension (RVH) is the form of secondary hypertension. In this some people have hypertension due to sleep apnea, obesity, thyroid problem.


Renin Angiotensin system (RAS) or Renin–Angiotensin Aldosterone system (RAAS) is a hormone system that is involved in the regulation of the arterial blood pressure. When the renal blood flow reduced, then kidneys convert Prorenin (protein) into Renin. Renin breaks into small plasma protein known as Angiotensin II Angiotensin II stimulates the secretion of the hormone aldosterone from the adrenal cortex. If the RAAS is excessively active, blood volume increases resulting blood pressure becomes too high. There are many drugs that interrupt different steps in this system to lower blood pressure.


When the arteries which carry blood to your kidneys becomes narrow, less blood flows to the kidneys. It releases hormones that tell the body to hold on to more salt and water. This causes your blood pressure to rise.

The most common cause of renal hypertension is:

  • Atherosclerosis (i.e. deposition of sticky, fatty substance called plaque on the inner lining of arteries.)
  • Fibro muscular dysplasia (i.e. this condition is caused by abnormal growth of cells in the walls of the arteries. This also leads to narrowing or blockage of these arteries.)
