Treatment of Cirrhosis in Naturopathy

What is Cirrhosis

Treatment of Acirrhosis in NaturopathyCirrhosis is a condition in which the liver slowly deteriorates and malfunctiond due to chronic injury. Liver is the only organ in the body that is able to regenerate but in Cirrhosis, the damaging agent such as virus, drug, alcohol, etc, continues to attack the liver and prevents complete regeneration thereby replacing normal, healthy liver tissu to scar tissue. The development  of cirrhosis indicates late stage liver disease and is usually followed by the onset of complications.

Many people with cirrhosis have no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. As the disease progresses, symptoms may include weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, wight loss, abdominal pain and bloating, itching, and spiderlike blood vessels on the skin.
