Description

Jaundice is a disease of the liver.
The yellowing of skin and whiting of eyes is Jaundice. It is caused by an excess accumulation of bile pigment the Bilirubin in the blood.

Jaundice is not a disease itself, but is a result of malfunctioning of the Liver.
Normally, the average life span of Red Blood Cells in the body is 120 days. The old RBCs travel to the Liver and gets broken down. The destruction of Red Blood Cells produces a yellow chemical known as Bilirubin. With the help of Liver and Kidneys, this yellow pigment is removed from the body. But if some thing goes wrong with the Liver, the level of Bilirubin increases in the Blood and will give rise to Jaundice.

Types of Jaundice :
1. Neonatal Jaundice : As the name indicates, it occurs in new born babies. At the time of birth, the baby usually is provided by a large amount of Red Blood cells. When the destruction of these Red Blood cells occur, the level of bilirubin increases in the blood. And if the newly born baby's body fails to remove the bilirubin from his body, it will cause Jaundice.

2. Haemolytic Jaundice : In this kind of Jaundice the culprit is Red Blood cells. When there is some defect in the Red Blood Cells, it causes Haemolytic Jaundice.

3. Hepatocellular Jaundice : It might be a result of Hepatitis. In this the fault is not with the Liver, But it fails to control the production of Bilirubin.

Causes of Jaundice
TB
Tumor
Malaria
Gallstones
Liver cancer
Leptospirosis
Pancreatic cancer
Contaminated Food or Water
Obstruction of the biliary tract
Hepatitis, Hepatitis A, B, C, D, E

Please differentiate Jaundice from Carotenemia. If you have discoloration only of the palms and the soles, but not of the sclera (whites of the eyes) and mucous membranes (oral cavity) then you have Carotenemia which is a harmless condition..

If not treated properly, Jaundice may cause

Materia Medica for Jaundice

Liver Diseases General

It is normal to first talk about the anatomy of an organ, then its normal functions, then the diseased condition and conclude with remedies.
But, this time, lets reverse the process. Lets first talk about the herbs to be used to cure Liver diseases.
When the Liver is diseased it shows its conditions in many symptoms like Jaundice, Hepatitis, Biliousness, Gallstones. The list is endless. But the solution is the same. If you or your doctor has concluded that the diseased condition is due to the malfunction of the Liver, look no further. The answer lies in the use of these top notch herbs.
Radish
Milk Thistle
Dandelion
Sleeping Plant
Turmeric
Use them singly or in combination, they will bring back the Liver to its normal functioning.
And, now if you would like to read about the organ called Liver, read on.

Liver is the human body’s largest organ. (Forget about the skin).
Liver is the main filter of the human body. It is also the main organ that regulates the digestion. It is the master weaver that controls the metabolism. Immunity is dependent on its health. Liver sick, Immunity down, man sick. It stores Nutrients.
It is a pivotal and important organ that controls the supply of energy and nutrients to the tissues.
The Liver is a tenacious organ. It is capable of regrowing dead or damaged cells/tissues and becoming healthy in a short time.
Liver produces Bile. The function of the Bile is to regulate digestion by breaking up fat into small pieces so that they can be absorbed by the Intestines.
Bile Ducts carry bile through the liver and gallbladder. Bile, then travels to the Duodenum of the small intestines.
Functions of the Liver. The Liver has countless functions. Some of the major functions are :--
Detoxify Blood
Store Vitamins and Iron
Store sugar glucose
Convert stored sugar to usable sugar
Break down Hemoglobin and Insulin
Convert ammonia to urea
Destroys old red blood cells
Secrete bile
Produce Proteins for Blood plasma
Production of cholesterol and special proteins to help carry fats through the body
Regulate blood clotting
Resist infections. Produce immune factors. Remove Bacteria from the bloodstream
Old dead red blood cells are the waste product that gives our stools brown color. Discoloration of human excreta may be a warning that something is wrong with your liver. Darkened urine bears the same message. Jaundice is the name of the disease when the skin and the eyes become yellow. Jaundice means excess Bilirubin. All these are the consequences of malfunctioning of the Liver.
If I abuse myself by consuming alcohol, my Liver will harden and Cirrhosis will set in. The same will happen if I am infected with Hepatitis C.
