Treatment of Liver Hemangioma in Ayurveda - Hemangioma of the Liver


According to Ayurvedic scriptures, liver which is also considered as Yakrut, Yakima or Yakna, is a vital organ for Chayapachaya (metabolism) of food we consume. It is believed to have originated from Rakta Dhatu (blood vessels) (3). The main function of liver is to impart red color to Rasa Dhatu, metabolize fats, proteins and store important vitamins & nutrients. This organ is accountable for conversion of Rasa Dhatu (plasma) to Rakta Dhatu (blood) and recognizes foreign matter or toxins while preventing them from entering blood stream. Liver balances the production and secretion of bile and maintains purity of blood by preventing Ama getting mixed in blood. (4)


A diseased Yakrut or liver can cause various chronic and fatal liver diseases like Hepatitis, Cirrhosis, Liver cancer (Liver hemangioma), Fascioliasis, PSC (Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis), Fatty liver diseases and gilbert's syndrome.


Liver hemangioma, which is also known as Hepatic Hemangioma or Cavernous hemangioma is a benign (non-cancerous) tumor which is composed of tangled network of blood vessels. The size of the tumor is about 4cm or 1.5 inches and are mostly asymptomatic.
