Liver Cirrhosis

liver cirrhosis

What is liver cirrhosis?

Liver is the largest gland in the body that performs various biological functions like detoxification, protein synthesis and other biochemicals that are necessary for the process of digestion. Liver cirrhosis is a liver disease in which the healthy liver tissues are replaced by the scar tissues that cause   permanent damage of the liver. The scarring of the tissues hampers the proper functioning of the liver. In general  liver disease causes injury to liver cells and leads to inflammation or death of the cell. Injury is followed by cell repair and scarring of the liver tissues results during the process of cell repair. Sacred tissues  block the blood flow through the liver and slows down the ability of the liver to produce hormones, enzymes and process nutrients, drugs, and natural toxins. This results in the poor functioning of the liver.

Ayurveda and liver cirrhosis:

HOW DETOXIFICATION CAN SUPPORT A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM?

HOW DETOXIFICATION CAN SUPPORT A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM

In today’s life, one gets exposed to a variety of toxins. Toxins are of two types : external and internal toxins. Pollutants, synthetic chemicals, processed food and heavy metals are the external toxins. Metabolic wastes and excessive hormones are internal body wastes.

Our body has a natural tendency to eliminate toxins from the body. The detoxification makes our immune system stronger. The better the detoxification process, the less toxins a body has and healthier a person becomes.

Kidneys, liver, skin, lungs and digestive system remove toxins from the body. If they are in a good condition, then they do their work properly. If they are deceased, the toxins will accumulate in a person’s body and this compromises his immune system.

TYPES OF TOXINS ONE GETS EXPOSED ON A DAILY BASIS

Toxins are present everywhere from household chemicals which are used for cleaning, environmental pollution, exhaust from vehicles to food and drinks we consume. It is not possible for a person to avoid them.

Lead, chlorine, fluoride, polychlorinated biphenyls, formaldehyde, steroids, pesticides, copper, mercury, etc. are a few toxins to which a person gets exposed to.

Our bodies are burdened by the daily exposure of toxins. Unfortunately, most of the people don’t have good eating habits and a healthy lifestyle. This leads to weakening of the immune system and body finds it hard to fight off infections. A mild infection can become a serious illness.

HOW INCREASED AMOUNT OF TOXINS AFFECT OUR BODY

Excessive accumulation of toxins can lead to toxicity. A high level of toxicity can affect our immune system in a variety of ways:

  • Due to weak immune system, inflammation occurs in the body.
  • There is less absorption of nutrients from the digestive system.
  • Immune system gets over-responsive. It reacts to wrong things and thus causes allergic reactions.

 

SYMPTOMS OF TOXICITY IN OUR BODY

The increased toxins in our body can result in a variety of symptoms. These symptoms can come or go or they can remain persistent also.

Following are the symptoms which arise due to toxicity:

  • Feeling tired all the time
  • Headache on a regular basis
  • Bloating
  • Pain in joints
  • Skin issues like rashes, hives, etc.
  • Digestive problems
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Puffy eyes
  • Menstrual problems
  • Mental confusion

 

WHAT IS DETOXIFICATION?

Detoxification means removing toxins from the blood. This is a cleansing process which is done by removing impurities from blood in liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system and skin.

It is essential for preventing illness and maintaining good health and longevity. Patient’s immune system gets boost up and he will be from illness. He will enjoy his life to the fullest.

HOW TO DETOX THE BODY?      

The steps which are helpful in detoxification of body are:

  • Good sleep- a good night sleep is very important. One should sleep for 7-8hrs at night for the normal functioning of body. It relaxes mind and body.
  • No alcohol- alcohol damages the liver. Liver is the most important organ for removing toxins from the body. So one should not drink alcohol.
  • Drink more water- water flushes out toxins from the body. It regulates body temperature, helps in digestion and increases nutrient absorption. It removes waste products through urine.
  • Reduce sugar intake
  • Eat anti-oxidant rich foods- one should eat foods which are rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, etc. Anti-oxidants strengthens immune system and thus improves overall health.
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Reduce salt intake- excessive salt intake leads to water accumulation in body. This causes accumulation of impurities.
  • Eat probiotics- foods like bananas, tomatoes, garlic, onions, oats, etc. are rich in probiotitcs. They are very good for digestive system. It detoxifies the body.
  • Exercise- regular physical exercise produces sweat. Sweat removes toxins from the body. It reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation.

DETOXIFICATION IN AYURVEDA     

Ayurveda believes that our body is made up of three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha doshas. Each dosha has its own function in the body. When impurities are accumulated in the body, it affects the proper functioning of the doshas.

Ayurveda says that healthy eating habits and healthy lifestyle is very important for the maintainence of good health. Besides this, panchkarma is performed for body detoxification.
