In Ayurveda, the liver is considered a fire – or pitta – organ, since it is essential to digestion and elimination. Therefore, the health of the liver requires balance in the pitta dosha to support the liver’s ability to flush toxins from the body. When the liver is overloaded with toxins like alcohol or fats, it will work too hard and burn too hot. This causes inflammation and problems throughout the body. Ayurvedic practitioners treat liver problems like fatty liver with a combination of dietary and lifestyle modifications and herbal remedies.
