Abstract

Hepatic cirrhosis of liver is an inflammatory condition of the liver caused by various factors specially excessive alcohol consumption over an extended period of time. When alcohol gets processed in the liver, it produces highly toxic chemicals. These chemicals can fatally injure the liver cells. Normally the treatment is too much time consuming, difficult and inadequate Ayurvedic treatment serves as a promising different modality. In present study the case of alcoholic cirrhosis complicated with Ascites is presented. The patient was given Ayurvedic treatment with Vardhamana Pippali, Katuki Churna, Punarnavadi Kvatha, Bhrungaraja Panchanga Churna, Arogyavardhini Rasa, Mixture of Bhumyamalaki Panchanga Churna, Sharpunkha Mula Churna and Sveta Parpati. This treatment approach has improved condition of patient greatly by bringing hepatitis from Child-Pugh stage C to stage B with improvement in sign and symptoms as well as in ascetic condition.
