Homeopathy: A Holistic approach to Liver treatment
Homeopathic medicines (both in single remedy or complex form) address both organic and functional complaints of the liver and gallbladder and work in a non toxic and harmonizing way. The homeopathic therapeutic action on strengthening the liver is 2 fold: it increases hematite count without involving the body into any excesses, and it reduces accumulation of fat. This is achieved by stimulating the fermenting system of the liver (lycopodium), benefiting cellular metabolism (Arsen Jodatum ), improving the functioning of spleen (Ceanothus americanus). It may be noted that Homeopathic medicines like Adel 34 stimulate a healing process that can result in an amazing excretion reaction not seen when using allopathic medications such as antibiotics. For example an old Hepatitis epidemica can be healed. Homeopathic medicines like lycopodium clavatum address the physical & psychological basis for craving sugar when proper elimination of toxic waste does not occur through liver.
The broad range of beneficial action of homeopathic liver medicines is as follows
- Help treat and detoxify the liver, gallbladder and pancreas which work together to promote good digestion. By addressing digestive difficulties they indirectly aid in liver health promotion.
