What is Jaundice Ayurvedic treatment


Jaundice is caused due to elevated blood levels of bilirubin which leads to yellowish discoloration of white of the eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Jaundice is not a disease per se, but rather a visible sign of an underlying disease process. 1

Bilirubin is a yellow colored waste product that remains in the bloodstream once iron is removed from the hemoglobin.2

In Ayurvedic classics Kamala has been described as Pitta predominant disorder. In kamala (jaundice), due to accumulation of pitta in the body (bilirubin in this context), the body to becomes dirty. It produces symptoms like haridra nakha (yellow colour of nail), haridra netra (yellow color of conjunctive), haridratvaka (yellow colour of skin), daha (burning sensation), Bheka varna (frog like yellow colour of body), daurbalya (weakness), avipaka (indigestion) and sudanaruchi (anorexia).3
