Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, most commonly caused by a viral infection.   Hepatitis is acute when it lasts less than six months and chronic when it persists longer. Some types of hepatitis will pass without causing permanent damage to the liver. Other types can persist for many years and cause scarring of the liver (cirrhosis) and, in the most serious cases, loss of liver function (liver failure), which can be fatal.

Ayurveda approach:

In Ayurveda, the liver is called‘Yakrit’. Pitta is the predominant humor of the liver. Most liver disorders are aggravated conditions of Pitta. Excessive bile production or a blockage in the flow of bile usually indicates high pitta, which in turn affects the agni or enzyme activities responsible for absorption, digestion and metabolism.

Aggravation of the Pitta causes the liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis and fatty liver. Kaamala is the term mentioned in Ayurveda to describe the wide range of liver diseases including Hepatitis.
