Natural Remedies for Ascites

by Tony Isaacs
author of Cancer's Natural Enemy

(The Best Years in Life) Ascites, also known as dropsy or abdominal dropsy, is a physical disorder where someone suffers from accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity. Ascites can be caused by liver disease and is a common side effect of alcoholism, chronic infection of viral hepatitis, or the abusive use of intravenous drugs. Otherwise, tumors, obstruction in the portal vein and other problems may lead to Ascites.

Successful treatment of Ascites should include a professional diagnosis and then treatment of the cause of the Ascites (preferably naturopathic treatment once the diagnosis has been completed). Here are a few simple herbal remedies which may help:

Garlic can play a big role in curing the problem of Ascites. Add one-half teaspoon of fresh garlic juice to 125 ml of water and consume it two times per day. This garlic juice treated water should be consumed for 2-3 weeks for best result by the ascites patients at regular basis.

Regular consumption of bitter melon (bitter gourd) root juice helps in prompt recovery of the complications imposed by ascites. Take 25 ml at least three times per day in dilute condition.

Paurnava has been found to be especially effective against ascites. Pound the dried roots of punarnava to make a powder. Take 1 teaspoon twice daily with lukewarm water.

The juice of fresh radish leaves has been found to be very beneficial in the controlling the intensity of ascites. Mix the juice of the leaves of radish plant with water.

Soak several fenugreek seeds overnight in a cup of water and then drink the water in the morning in empty stomach..

Carrot juice and buttermilk are beneficial. They can play a vital role in restoring energy in the body while not adding to the accumulated fluid levels.

serrapeptase

Apocynum, also known as apocandle, is an outstanding herb to use when the urine is scanty and high-colored, and the bowels are constipated. Put 15 to 30 drops in four ounces of water and give one teaspoon every hour. If the kidney and bowels do not respond, administer 30 to 60 drops every three or four hours. Should there still be no response, add some ground apocynum root to the decoction. Adding the root is the most efficient form of the decoction, but it can be nauseating. Ttry beginning with 5 drops and slowly increasing the toleration limit is reached (usually 30 to 40 drops)

Polytrichum Juniperum used as a diuretic infusion is one of the better remedies. As should be the case with all infusions unless otherwise directed, take one to two teaspoons of dried herb (or two to four teaspoons of fresh herb) and place in a cup of hot water for approximately ten minutes and then strain.

Aralia Hispida is another valuable diuretic. The best results are obtained from giving as an infusion every two or three hours.

Apis is a good remedy when there is a smarting or burning sensation during urination.

Chimaphila is another good vegetable diuretic, and, like the remedies already mentioned, should, be used as an infusion.

Strophanthus frequently out-performs other remedies, however it may be contraindicated in ascites of tumors, hepatic, splenic and pelvic. Use thirty drops to a half glass of water and take a teaspoonful every hour.

When the system fails to respond to other suggested remedies, relief may be found from the compound powder of jalap and the bitartrate of potassium, in dram doses every three, four, or five hours, until there are two, three, or four copious stools within a 24 hour period.

Avoid consumption of excessive water. In case of abnormal thirst, drink small amount of milk (raw organic goats milk is the healthiest option) at room temperature in small sips.
