The signs and symptoms of Cirrhosis of Liver are jaundice, loss of appetite, weakness or fatigue, weight loss, bruises on skin, itching on skin, Ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen), Oedema of legs and ankles, and Esophageal Varices Bleeding (vomiting of blood).

    Dr. Sharma,
    I have been diagnosed with liver cirrhosis in February 2023. The symptoms were systemic i.e. small oesophageal and fundal varices, PGP, splenomegaly, low albumin, globulin, platelets and WBCs in blood and mild ascites. I also developed T2DM, poorly managed as diagnosed during February, 2023 at the time of hospitalization due to pheumonia. After treatment of two months, I lost weight and I never felt other symptoms and now feel quite healthy. Please suggest what medicines can I take.

  7. Hello dr. Sharma,
    I have liver cirrhosis, no pain, ascites in the past but no longer, but I have developed varices. I am 63.
    The doctors say it is from alcohol but I used to drink very little and now not at all. I believe it was from mold toxicity which has since been alleviated through no sugar, no fruit and no grain for 6 months.
    I plan on taking Red Sage Root, Hamamelis, and Cardus Marianus – along with cucumin, licorice root, large quatities of vitamin c – and more of my usual suppliments like D3/K2/Ubiquinal/B-complex/Chorella/cilantro/spirulina/multi-vitamin. I eat only organic, and chicken, fish, veggies (steamed) and fruit. I am also using a heat lamp daily.
    thank you

  8. Hi Dr. Sharma,
    My father has cirrhosis (non alcoholic) from fatty liver and ascites. He has little appetite and feels full after small amounts of food. No pain in the region, just discomfort from the big belly and gets out of breath from too much activity and gets swelling/water retention in ankles. He did have typhoid about 60 years ago at which time he almost died, so I don’t know if that, or perhaps the treatment that they gave him for it caused damage that ultimately led to this. He also has an enlarged spleen and low platelets that the medical doctors blame the distended belly on and just give him meds, which probably also contributed to this. Any recommendations on homeopathic remedy course would be sooo appreciated!

    Respected Sir,

    With due regards for yourgoodself, I want to discuss my newly diagnosed disease of LIVER CHRRHOSIS, which as per Allopathic doctors is not treatable except Liver Transplantation.

    I was suffering with Rheum. Arthritis since 5 years and as per Doctor’s advises taking Tabs Folitrax 20mg (Once in a week) + Tabs HCQS 400 two times daily. Found relex with treatment but gradually some physical problems started like ,:


    I ignored these symptoms but about three months back, when some Blood came from my Blocked nose. I rushed E & T doctor and got treated. But after 3-4 days again noticed some blood drops from nose, I got Whole Body check up and found my Platelets were come down to around 50000. Doctor asked me to go to Max Hospital for further opinion. I did that. The Head of Gastroenterology, got different Tests, Ultrasound, X Rays and diagnosed it is a CHRONIC LIVER PROBLEM i.e. LIVER CHRRHOSIS. HOD Gastroenterology expressed that we shall try that it may not increase further , but only treatment is Liver Transplantation in Allopathy, which is beyond my reach and also very risky.

    I am having lot of pending liabilities and financially very weak, I humbly request you to kindly advise me accordingly.

    I request you to please give appointment for personal discussions with you.
