5 Steps to Prevent Hepatitis, Find out How!!

It’s 28th July 2018 and many of us are wondering, what is the importance of this date? Despite of killing 1.4 million people worldwide, this disease is given a sceptical outlook. The lack of global attention has raised the risk bar to another level. “Hepatitis” for sure welcomes fear and call for attention but do we even bother to act on it?
WHO observes this day with an aim to:
  • Raise awareness of the different forms of Hepatitis and how they are transmitted.
  • Strengthen prevention, screening and control of Viral Hepatitis and its related diseases.
  • Increase Hepatitis B vaccine coverage and integration into national immunization programmes.
  • Coordinate a global response to Hepatitis.
 
Sometimes, it is natural to pass to the state of denial when we come face to face with any deadly disease, and if Hepatitis is one of them for any of us, our goal henceforth should be to defeat them with all our might.
 
Are you aware of Hepatitis?
 
According to World Health Organization (WHO), “Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. The condition can be self-limiting or can progress to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer. Hepatitis viruses are the most common cause of hepatitis in the world but other infections, toxic substances, and autoimmune diseases can also cause hepatitis.”
Among the various types of Hepatitis, the most common ones affecting around half of the population are Hepatitis B & C.
 
Facing any of these symptoms? Don’t panic! Connect to your doctor!
 
  • Fatigue or Tiredness
  • Dark Urine
  • Pale Stool
  • Abdominal pain
  • High body temperature
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unexplainable weight loss
  • Yellow skin and eyes
 
You can always opt for preventive methods
 
  • Know how Hepatitis Transmits: India nurtures 10-15 % of the entire pool of Hepatitis virus around the world. Depending on the type of virus, Hepatitis B & C has the highest risk of transmission mainly through blood and infected body fluids and most of the time it is difficult to figure out the symptoms. Hepatitis A & E are spread through faecal discharge, contaminated water and food. Some other non-viral factors include medication, alcohol abuse or poor blood flow to the liver.
 
  • Choose Natural ways: Eat fruits and vegetables rich in anti-oxidant Vitamins such as C, E & Beta-carotene as well as minerals like zinc and selenium. Garlic and Dark leafy veggies should be the perfect choice for ‘Hepatitis affected’ people. Ayurvedic herbs like Kalmegh, Dandelion root, Bhuiamla, Guduchi and Turmeric have strong hepato-protective properties.
 
  • Check Hygiene Level: Maintain utmost personal hygiene to avoid contracting and further development of all five types of Hepatitis.
 People suffering from Hepatitis A & E in particular must   take following points in consideration:
 They must…
  • Use distilled water
  • Avoid consuming undercooked shellfish & oysters
  • Refrain from eating raw fruits & partially cooked vegetables
  • Stay away from using common razors & drug needles
  • Say ‘Yes’ to safe sexual practices and always choose proper sexual protection to reduce the risk of B & C infection
 
 Even people suffering from Hepatitis D should follow   these  aforementioned tips.
 
  • Live a Balanced lifestyle: Unhealthy food-habits and alcohol consumption can damage your liver function. Acetaldehyde, which is the toxic by-product of alcohol, damages the mitochondria of the liver cell, gradually killing it.
     
  • Get vaccinated: Vaccination is the best way to get immunized against Hepatitis Virus. Presently, scientists have developed three types of vaccines to fight the Hepatitis A, B & C.
 
Common complications of Hepatitis
 
Hepatitis B & C affect the liver causing inflammation and cirrhosis. If left untreated, this can lead to…
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Ascites- Fluid accumulation in the peritoneal cavity in abdomen
  • Portal Hypertension
  • Kidney failure
  • Liver Cancer
  • Death
‘Giving Up’ shouldn’t be a possible course of action. That’s why on 28th July, over 100 countries observe this special day as World Hepatitis Day to give the world a better understanding of this disease, spread awareness and strengthen the preventive measures to eradicate the viral Hepatitis from the world.
One may intake 2 tablets of Hepatobotanics P twice daily to keep the liver safe and healthy.
