Hepatitis (Jaundice) - Causes and Some Herbal Cures   by  Janice Kumar


Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. There are broadly two kinds of hepatitis  (Jaundice) , infectious and serum. The disease is primarily caused by a virus which affects the liver's functioning. The liver gets impaired and is unable to function properly. When the liver is affected, it is unable to efficiently purify blood, store vitamins and other nutrients essential for proper functioning of the body, release bile for digestion and release glycogen for reserve energy.
