Jaundice is not a disease , but a symptom of a disease when our liver produce a yellow like chemical called Bilirubin which formed by the destruction of hemoglobin. The red blood cells destroyed after a certain period and our body drain or removes out Bilirubin through liver and kidneys. Poor liver function is not able to remove this chemical and an abnormal rise of bilirubin in the blood which causes jaundice. Excessive level of Bilirubin can cause major health problem like anemia, hepatitis, liver failing, spleen diseases, brain infection and damages.

Types of Jaundice
In this too much bilirubin finds its way into the blood because of an excessive breakdown of red blood cells. This can be due to red blood cell defects, which cause their premature destruction, or defects affecting the red cells from external sources.
In hepatocellular jaundice, the liver itself isn’t working properly and fails to deal with the production of bilirubin adequately. This damage is often due to hepatitis and it is the commonest cause of jaundice in adults. Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver.
Did you know that almost everyone is jaundiced as an infant, soon after birth? At birth, the fetus has an abundant supply of red cells to act as an oxygen reservoir during the delivery. After the birth they are no longer needed and the body must break them down. This releases large amounts of bilirubin into the blood and givens new born babies their orange brown tinge. Some babies suffer a more serious form of jaundice in which their blood breaks down excessively. This is due to antibodies from their mother’s blood. Fortunately modern antenatal blood test make this condition very rare. To boost the liver function in the body to control the bilirubin level, natural treatment are very much effective and helpful without any side effect to make the jaundice levels less life-threatening.
