Treatments for NASH

As with any protocol, the key to proper treatment is tackling the underlying cause. The most important goal is treating the underlying disorders, such as diabetes, obesity, and high-blood lipids. At the same time, related symptoms and physical abnormalities should also be treated. Since MCM is a constitutional medicine, it has developed many types of therapies to support the liverís repair process.

 

  1. Dietary control. Controlling oneís weight by regulating fat intake and overall nutrition is very important. Limiting daily calories and avoiding foods high in saturated fat.
     
  2. Taking an anti-oxidant and multiple vitamins supplement.
  3. Anti-hyperlipidemia treatments: Many western anti-hyperlipidemia drugs are hard on the liver, so using alternative Chinese herbal remedies can be suitable for NASH. By maintaining a healthy diet, the blood lipid level can be reduced along with fat deposits in the liver. MCM uses the Chinese herbs.

4.   Facilitating bile secretion can help eliminate bile acid, which is a way the liver secretes fat. Herbs that help increase bile secretion aid the liver in eliminating fat deposits.

  1. Anti-fibrosis treatments
  2. Controlling liver inflammation by using supportive herbs. Herbal remedies that can facilitate the healing process are: (active ingredients schisandrin B and C), (active ingredient, silymarin). These compounds can help heal liver inflammation and increase the liverís ability to metabolize fat and reduce its accumulation.

 

Prognosis of NASH

The good news is that most patients are able to reverse their fatty liver condition once they reduce their weight through treatment and diet control. I have treated many patients using a comprehensive approach (life style change, diet control, exercise, and herbal treatment), and the majority of them have been able to improve their condition symptomatically, bio-chemically and histologically.
