Cirrhosis

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homoeopathic treatment of cirrhosis, let us first enumerate the options in allopathic or conventional medicine. These may actually vary according to the cause of cirrhosis:

  1. Drugs containing ornithine salts and aspartate salts in cases of alcoholic liver disease or ALD
  2. Medicines to get rid of accumulated copper in cases of Wilson’s disease.
  3. Drawing of blood in cases of haemochromatosis.
  4. Liver transplant therapy in severe cases.

Prolonged usage ornithine and aspartate salts may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, insomnia. Blood transfusions involve risk of further infections such as hepatitis B, HIV and so on. Liver transplantation requires abandoning alcohol for manymonths prior to as well as after the procedure. It also involves the risk of further infections and the liver being rejected by the receiver’s body after the surgery.

Homeopathy in cases of cirrhosis can help in improving the immunity of the patient, managing the side effects of the conventional or allopathic treatment and can prevent further deterioration of cirrhosed liver. It also helps to uplift their mental happiness and improve their quality of life. Also with homeopathic treatment improvement in Liver Function Test or LFT is seen.

Even after liver transplantation homoeopathic remediescan reduce the riskof tissue rejection and side effects of immunosuppressants.

Patients who come to me are generally suffering from abdominal pain, fatigue, blood in stools, blood in vomit, fever, yellowish skin and eyes, loss of appetite and weight, tendency to easy bruising. All of these show improvement with homeopathic intervention.

Remedies such as Apocynum, Aurummuriaticumnatronatum, Cardusmarianus, Curare, Mercuriusdulcis, kali bichromicum have been found effective in cirrhosis of liver.

Chelidonium and taraxacum have been effective in managing jaundice.Mercurius has been effective in bloody and slimy stools. Aloes has its role in managing blood from bowels and blood in vomit. Aconite can control vomiting of bright red blood. Arnica can heal bruised patients.

There are 70 homeopathic remedies which give great relief in cirrhosis of liver. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the physician. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same drugs although trade name may be different.
