Recovery Diet for Jaundice

Jaundice is the build up of bilirubin in the blood because of some damage to the liver. This organ has one the most important function in the body – to metabolize all the digested nutrients and toxins in the body.

With the presence of jaundice, our aim has to eat healthy food and put less strain on the liver for metabolism.

Indian Juice Recipes for Jaundice

The most important thing in jaundice is to nourish yourself very well with at least 10 glasses of water a day. It will help you to stay hydrated and also help flush out toxins from the body. If you find it difficult to have plain water or have nausea as a common symptom, try fruit infused water like Lemony Papaya Infused Water. Fruit Infuser Water Bottles are easily available all over India, in online shops as well as the home needs section of supermarkets and retail chains. This is flavour ful way of making up for your water needs during illness.

In the first few days of diagnosing jaundice, a juice diet is the best option. Begin your day with a glass of warm water with lemon juice and have 4 to 5 glasses of juice daily. You can add some honey for added taste if you wish to. Honey has digestive enzymes, it is sure to help you by way of its antioxidants which help in the recovery process. Check the recipe of Honey Lemon Water.

Begin with clear liquid diet like strained juices. You can opt for both fruit and vegetable juices. These have ample antioxidants in them which helps flush out toxins and help you fight the disease.

Fruits like papaya, berries, avocado, melons, and grapefruit, citrus fruits are beneficial to a person suffering from jaundice because of their rich enzymes, micro-nutrients, and cellular regeneration capabilities. Strained Orange Juice are good choices to begin with. Remember to add no sugar to these juices.

This can be accompanied by at least one glass of coconut water a day. Coconut water is another flacourful way of catching up with your water needs. It also helps to maintain electrolyte balance in the body. Have plain coconut water, preferably without coconut meat, as the coconut meat is difficult to digest.

After following this for 3 to 5 days, depending on the severity of the condition, vegetable and fruit juice combos can be introduced like Muskmelon and Pineapple Juice. Gradually you can also stop straining the juices.

Indian Soup Recipes for Jaundice

Thin vegetable soups and thin dal water without any spice and fat can be introduced a few days later. Remember you need to give your body enough protein, vitamins and minerals for recovery. You are what you eat.

Experiment with a single vegetable to make a simple soup like Carrot Soup for babies without any spice and fat. Feel free to add a pinch of salt though.

Later vegetable soup combos can be introduced. You can try Mixed Vegetable Soup, but again without spice and fat. These irritate the digestive tract and hence are better avoided. Once your body is accustomed to these soups, try chunky soups like Broccoli Soup then.

Salads, soft chapatis and soft-cooked subzis and non-spicy khichdis can be also be added slowly after 7 to 10 days. Avoid all the fried chips and samosa to mithais. No spice yet and fat in minimum quantity to put less strain on the liver.

Introduction of Dairy Products in Jaundice

In the first week of the disease, it is good to avoid milk since it is difficult to digest than strained juices and thin soups.

Passed a week after diagnosis, depending on the severity of the condition, porridge using skim milk or low fat milk can be introduced once a day. Check by having a small quantity. If you have digestion problems, then discontinue it. If you can digest, continue it for a few days and gradually introduce full fat milk.

Try and bowl curd. It is mose easy to digest. It is probiotic and well-tolerated than milk.
