The method of treatment of liver cirrhosis depends on the cause of the disease and on the severity of the patient’s condition. Doctors usually use a combination of different treatments, including pharmacological agents and lifestyle changes. And although it is believed that there is no effective cure for liver cirrhosis, there are many ways – both conventional and unconventional – that help control the symptoms of the disease.
Alcohol abuse and unhealthy diet are basic factors that increase the risk of liver cirrhosis.
Conventional treatment of liver cirrhosis and hepatitis.
- Steroid and antivirus drugs.
- Pharmacological agents reducing edema.
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Resign from alcohol and drugs.
- Introduction of low-processed products to the diet, reduction of salt intake.
- Weight control.
- Controlling the level of cholesterol.
- In severe cases, the only option is liver transplantation.
Natural treatment of liver cirrhosis and hepatitis.
The natural treatment of liver diseases focuses on preventive measures that support the functioning of the liver and prevent the overloading of this important organ. The basic steps in this direction are regular liver detoxification, the use of an anti-inflammatory diet based on organic food and the abandonment of alcohol and smoking cigarettes. According to the statistics, excessive alcohol consumption is the basic factor causing fatty liver disease, and an even greater risk is the combination of alcohol with cigarettes and poor diet and the abuse of pharmacological agents.
Obesity is the second highest risk after alcohol. Long-term obesity may result in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and increase the risk of other liver problems. Fatty liver causes harmful changes in the metabolism of glucose, fatty acids and lipoproteins, in addition systemic inflammation, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and cardiovascular diseases. To eliminate high levels of triglycerides, eliminate food industry products from the diet and focus on a properly balanced diet.
The third threat to the liver is the abuse of pharmacological agents. All pharmacological agents must be processed by the liver, and according to the statistics we use a lot of them: headache pills, hormonal drugs, contraceptives and antibiotics. Familiarize yourself with the side effects of all medications you take. If possible, dispose of synthetic powders and tablets and replace them with natural remedies – naturally under the supervision of a physician.
Another thing is infections and viruses that can damage the liver. The cause of viral hepatitis A, B and C are viruses. It is considered that the best protection in this case is protective vaccination. However, at the moment there is no vaccine against hepatitis C. Because the virus is transmitted through the blood, the most effective way to prevent it is to prevent infection by not sharing personal care and having sex safely.
There are natural herbs and spices to support the liver (eg turmeric, ginger, probiotics, milk thistle), which stimulate the production of bile and improve the functioning of the digestive tract. Probiotics (eg DIGESTIVE+++) effectively support the liver, because the intestinal microflora plays an important role in the detoxification process. Particularly beneficial for the liver are, among others, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin B6. Potassium reduces systolic blood pressure, lowers cholesterol and lowers triglyceride levels. The research also indicates the high efficiency of dietary supplements containing a complex of amino acids and protein substances stimulating intensive regeneration at the cellular level (eg LAMININE).
