Liver cancer from the point of view of Ayurveda
The liver is the largest gland of our body that maintains the digestion process and helps to filter the toxins from blood and produce or store the enzymes that help digest the food. It’s an essential organ of the body and performs a vital function. The liver is a Pitta organ, playing an important role in the digestive process. It stores nutrients and sugar to boost the immune system. According to Ayurveda, imbalance in Doshas could lead to liver diseases, including liver cancer.
The abnormal growth and multiplication of liver cells is known as hepatocellular carcinoma or liver cancer. Liver cancer can develop outside or inside the liver. It also affects the blood vessels and bile duct.
Factors that increase the risk of getting liver cancer:
- Chronic infection of hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus
- Liver cirrhosis
- Diabetes mellitus
- Nonalcoholic liver disease
- Heavy alcohol consumption
Fortunately, the liver is an organ capable of regeneration. Even if 75% of the liver is damaged, it can regenerate without loss of function.
