Acute hepatitis lasts less than six months while chronic hepatitis lasts longer than six months. Some types of hepatitis are treatable without causing permanent liver damage. Other kinds might linger for years, producing scarring of the liver (cirrhosis) and, in the worst-case scenario, loss of liver function (liver failure), which can be deadly. Types B and C, in particular, induce chronic illness and are the primary cause of cirrhosis and cancer in the liver.
“The name Kamala is used in Ayurveda to indicate a wide range of liver disorders, including Hepatitis. Kaamala is a Raktavaha srotas dominating pitta dosha ailment (a system that includes the liver, spleen, blood vessels, and reticuloendothelial tissue). Mr. Chawla explains that kaamala is caused by pitta dosha and rakta dhatu dysfunction.
Pitta is increased by poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle, which affects rakta production and agni, leading in a number of ailments, including hepatitis.
According to Mr Chawla, the goal of Ayureda medicine is to repair the vitiated pitta dosha and agni, which are addressed by nutrition, slight changes in daily routine, and herbal medication.\
