Jaundice is a liver disorder which leads to the accumulation of yellow pigment in the whites of the eyes, skin and urine. The presence of these pigments are caused by worn-out red blood cells which are not excreted by the body system in bile as they should be.
Jaundice may indicate blood, kidney or liver disorders. Women who have a history of Jaundice should not use birth control pills, as the liver is responsible for breaking down estrogen and eliminating it from the body. Birth control medication will most likely cause a recurrence of this condition.
Some nutrients that may be beneficial in the treatment of Jaundice are as follows:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin F
- Panthothenic acid
A few of the herbs that are useful in the treatment of Jaundice are:
