Fatty Liver

Fatty liver is a reversible condition where fat accumulates in liver cells due to steatosis. In Ayurveda, it is referred to as Yakrit dalludara, characterized by an enlarged liver due to increased Kapha dosha and fat deposition. Causes include digestive system vitiation leading to improper digestion and fat tissue deposition in the liver. Symptoms include abdominal heaviness, distention, altered appetite, constipation or diarrhea, lethargy, weight loss, nausea, dark patches on arms and neck, and burping.


Treatment for fatty liver includes dietary restriction, physical exercise, and weight reduction. In Ayurveda, managing fatty liver involves addressing Agnivikruti, Kapha and Meda vitiation, Srotorodha, and Vata vitiation. The first line of treatment includes Agnideepana (stimulating digestive fire), Rookshana (dryness therapy), Srotosodhana (removing channel blockages), and pacifying Kapha, Meda, and Vata. Ayurvedic therapies include Shodana chikitsa like virechana and vasti, and external therapies like udwartanam, Dhanyamladhara, lepam, and other lekhana therapies.
