The buildup of fats in the liver is known as Fatty Liver. The liver processes everything that you eat or drink and filters harmful substances from the blood. If too much fat has accumulated in the liver, this process gets interfered with. The symptoms of fatty liver can be non-specific, especially in the early stages. Most people with a Fatty Liver feel unwell and find they get tired and gain weight for no apparent reason. The reasons for Fatty Liver can be alcoholism, incorrect diet, obesity, diabetes, or even excessive use of medication.  Homeopathic remedies for fatty liver can reverse the condition of the fatty liver and bring it too normal. Natural medicines, which are made of natural substances, are given to patients after studying the unique symptoms experienced by each individual. The natural remedies for fatty liver are completely safe with no side effects.

Symptoms of Fatty Liver

In most of the patients, there are hardly any symptoms. They come to know about the presence of this problem during a routine USG or while undergoing investigations for some other problem. In other patients, there are some vague and generalized symptoms. Only in advanced cases, where liver cirrhosis happens, the symptoms become pronounced.

The following are the main signs and symptoms of fatty liver-

  • There is generalized fatigue and weakness.
  • In some patients, there is a loss of appetite.
  • Slight pain in the right side of the abdomen may be present in some cases.
  • Nausea and vomiting are also present in some patients.
  • In some cases, there is redness of the palms.
  • Liver enzymes may be increased. The reading of SGOT and SGPT or AST and ALT may be on the higher side.
  • Triglyceride levels may also be on the higher side.
  • In advanced disease, jaundice may be present with yellowness of skin and eyes.
  • Even the spleen may get enlarged.


Causes of Fatty Liver

As I have mentioned earlier, fatty liver is more of a lifestyle problem. It has more to do with our diet which is becoming more and more saturated with fat and refined carbohydrates. Abundant intake of aerated drinks is another reason. These aerated drinks are full of fructose which is known to increase liver fat accumulation.

At the same time, our physical activity is reducing by the day. We are becoming slaves to gadgets, machines and vehicles. Therefore, our ability to burn off the fat that we consume is declining. A part of this fat ultimately collects in our liver.

Homeopathy for fatty liver

Homeopathy has some very good medicines for the treatment of fatty liver. These medicines are more specific in nature vis-à-vis allopathy and act primarily on the disease process affecting the liver. At the same time, it is important to understand that homeopathy selects the right medicine on the basis of the holistic symptoms of the patient and not just the diagnostic name of the disease. Here, I am giving a short list of the 5 best homoeopathic medicines for fatty liver. These are based on the totality of the symptoms of the patient and not just the name of the disease.


Top Homeopathic Remedies for Fatty Liver

1. Lycopodium: For Fatty Liver with acidity

Lycopodium is a natural remedy of great help for treating Fatty Liver with gastric symptoms and acidity. The patient complains of distension or bloating of the abdomen soon after eating anything. The abdomen feels full of gas. Burning belching is also experienced. Even eating a little causes fullness in the abdomen. The patient feels heaviness and pain in the right upper part of the abdomen. Usually, the symptoms get worse towards the evening. Farinaceous food makes the person worse. An unusual craving for sweets and hot drinks in excess may be present.

2. Chelidonium: For Fatty Liver with Pain in Right Upper Abdomen

Chelidonium is the top natural medicine for Fatty Liver treatment. The marked symptom of using this medicine is a pain in the right upper abdomen and pain under the right shoulder. There may also be an enlargement of the liver. The person is usually constipated. The stool passes in the form of hard balls. A distended abdomen with nausea and vomiting is also experienced. The patient suffers from excessive weakness. In the case of jaundice in a patient with Fatty Liver too, Chelidonium is the best remedy. A hallmark symptom that adds weightage to selecting this medicine is a desire for very hot drinks and hot food.

3. Phosphorus: For Fatty Liver with Food Coming up after Eating

Phosphorus is the best natural medicine for patients with Fatty Liver who feel as if the food is coming upward after eating. This is accompanied by sour belching. Vomiting may also occur in a few cases, along with pain in the liver. The stool and flatus are very offensive. The patient feels weak after passing stool. The craving for peculiar things in a diet is an important indication for using this medicine in Fatty Liver patients. These peculiar things include ice creams, cold drinks and refreshing items like juices.

4. Calcarea Carb: For Obese Fatty Liver Patients

Calcarea Carb is a very beneficial natural medicine for mainly obese Fatty Liver patients. The person is fatty and flabby with excess fat in the liver and whole abdomen. This remedy successfully helps in burning excess fat in the liver. Digestion is very slow in such persons with long-standing constipation. The abdomen always remains distended. Milk is not suitable for these people. A few constitutional symptoms that are taken note of are a desire for boiled eggs or strange things like chalk and pencils. Another is sensitivity to cold air and excessive sweating on the head.

5. Nux Vomica: For Fatty Liver with Pain in the Abdomen after Eating

Natural remedy Nux Vomica is the best fatty liver treatment in homeopathy when the cause is over-consumption of alcohol. It is prescribed when pain in the abdomen begins a few hours after eating, with a feeling of a stone in the abdomen. Sour or bitter belching accompanies the pain. A very significant symptom for selecting Nux Vomica for Fatty Liver is constipation with an ineffectual urge to pass stool or poop. The stool, however, is insufficient and unsatisfactory. The passing out of stool gives some relief from the pain in the abdomen but the urge to pass stool is renewed soon after. The patient craves fatty food, spicy food, coffee and alcoholic drinks in the diet.
