Liver protective medicines some of which find mention in ancient texts like that of 11th century Ibn Sina’s Canon of Medicine are known to contain ‘Moghavi property’ that prevents the liver from injuries or diseases. Some of the 8 liver cleanse medicines that are recommended by homeopaths belong to this class of liver protective drugs.
A drug effect with a Moghavi property prevents the liver from injuries or diseases. This definition is similar to the hepatoprotective effect. Hepatoprotective agents are those compounds, which mitigate the liver injury caused by hepatotoxic agents and thus can prevent damage to the liver. Homeopathic medicines like Berberis vulgaris, Myristica fragrans, Crocus sativus, Eupatorium cannabinum, Terebinthaceae, and Acorus calamus are included in Ibn Sina’s Canon of medicine. The temperament of 89% of plants is “hot” and “dry”. This may indicate that in order to have a suitable hepatoprotective effect, temperament must be “hot” and “dry” says the Persian polymath. Further as per research studies conducted by CCRH, it may promote liver regeneration partly via the LKB1-AMPK signaling pathway. It is known to protect postoperative hepatic function and may be a liver protective agent against liver failure.
The doctor recommended liver protective medicines in homeopathy to improve liver function, promote liver cell regeneration, and/or enhance liver detoxification naturally. They are particularly useful in kidney transplantation complications where abstract liver injury is seen due to the anti-inflammatory and liver-protective functions. Know more
