Alternative Treatments for Cirrhosis & Liver Disease
Cirrhosis and liver disease are serious conditions which before have been treated using prescription medication, but are there other ways to treat this disease that can bring along significant relief for the patient?
Before we even attempt to answer that question, it is very important that you understand that the liver is one of the most delicate organs that you have in your body it handles everything that you eat and drink, whether or not it is sick. Any alternative treatments will be broken down by the liver too, meaning that every component should be well known and understood not to cause further damage and illness.
There are 3 main alternative treatments for cirrhosis and liver disease:
- Use of herbs
- Use of homeopathy
Lets look at the use of herbs in detail. There are some herbs that are known to work well as liver cleansers and increase detoxification. This is primarily what is known about these herbs, but depending on the complications that one may be experiencing and the stage of advancement of the disease, they will work differently
- Licorice Root – This is a herb that has been used for many centuries in both Eastern and Western medicine. The active component that seems to have an effect on the cirrhosis is glycyrrhizin, which needs to be mixed with cysteine and glycerine. The herb will need to be delivered intravenously, so a qualified medical practitioner should be present. Licorice root is also know to stop cirrhosis that is caused by Hepatitis C.
- Bupleurum – This is a Chinese herb and has been seen to stop the development of cirrhosis in people with Hepatitis C. It is a liver detoxifying element, and has been used in Chinese medicine for the treatment of liver complications.
- Milk Thistle – This herb treatment has Roman roots, and was also used in Greece and scientific experiments prove that it works. Its basic component, silymarin, stops viruses, alcohol and toxins and even certain harmful medications from attacking the liver. It doesn’t work on all people in the same way though some people seem to benefit more than others.
Recently, Peptide treatments have shown powerful results for Cirrhosis of the liver. These peptide based cell therapies will target pacific damaged cell and regenerate them faster. The great thing is the peptide compounds are all natural substances, created in labs using extracts of animal and plant proteins. The peptide treatments are 100% safe and are one of the few recommended bio-medications for cell nutrition and regeneration. The peptide treatments are typically administered weekly, for 1-6 months, which allows the peptides to target and progressively induce the repair and normalization of your cell cycle, regenerating organs or damaged cells faster.
Currently, most peptide based compounds are not approved by the FDA in the U.S. However, many major universities are quickly producing amazing developments. You can still receive peptide cell treatments from Cell Therapy clinics outside of the U.S. Most reputable clinics include their peptide lab within the facility and provide quality medical treatments on par, or better then most public facilities in the United States.

Homeopaths have their own special way with which they deal with cirrhosis, but one of the great advantages is that they take into account the entire health of an individual before they offer a course of treatment or healing. One of the things that homeopaths do effectively is help people to reduce their alcohol intake therefore reducing the amount of toxins that get into the liver.
Choose a qualified homeopath, one who has a good reputation and one whose cures are known to work. In all this, whether you decide to use herbs or homeopathy, make sure that you involve your medical practitioner.
In cases where doctors think there is something to be gained through a transplant, a patient will be offered a liver from a donor. This is a highly complex and delicate procedure and should only be handles in a fully fledged hospital staffed by experts.
