Non-Alcoholic Liver Disease

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is a prevalent and potentially serious liver condition characterized by the accumulation of excess fat in the liver of individuals who consume little to no alcohol. NAFLD encompasses a spectrum of liver disorders, ranging from simple fatty liver (steatosis) to a more advanced and potentially severe form known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). NAFLD is often associated with underlying metabolic conditions such as obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. While simple fatty liver is generally considered benign, NASH can lead to inflammation, liver cell damage, fibrosis, and, in some cases, cirrhosis or liver cancer. Early diagnosis and lifestyle modifications, including weight loss, dietary changes, and improved physical activity, are essential in managing NAFLD and preventing its progression to more severe stages.

Live a Wholesome Life with Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines conventional Western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. It emphasizes a holistic view of health, focusing on the interconnectedness of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Integrative medicine seeks to provide personalized and comprehensive care, incorporating evidence-based treatments alongside practices such as acupuncture, nutrition counselling, mindfulness, and other complementary therapies to promote healing and overall wellness.
