Hepatitis is a problem related to the liver, where Hepato means liver and titis means swelling. So whenever there is swelling, inflammation related to the liver it is called hepatitis. There are many kinds of hepatitis. Its reason may vary. It can occur due to viruses, toxins, synthetic drugs and due to other reasons.

So before telling about its symptoms, firstly I want to explain its types. Hepatitis generally refers to various swelling and inflammation of the liver called the virus.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF HEPATITIS?

The various types of hepatitis are A, B, C, D, E. Hepatitis F and G are newly discovered genotype. In these, hepatitis A is quite common and it spread like an epidemic. The main cause of its spreads is unhygienic conditions like unhygienic foods, drinks and insanitary conditions. Main mode of transmission of this infection is flies and feces. It mostly occurs in third world countries. Hepatitis E and F are also similar to the hepatitis A. These are relatively easy to cure with herbs like Bhumi Amalaki, Kalmegh, bhringraj, Kutki.

In kumbh kamala, there is retention of water, which is ascites; in halimak, there will be fever association and in panaki, there will be diarrhea association. So Ayurvedic herbs are providing excellent results in these problems.
