Elevated liver enzymes in Ayurveda

Asked by: 3236 views Liver Problem

Respected Sir,
My six month old son recovered from jaundice about 3 weeks back. But just about when his jaundice was getting over his liver enzymes started going up. At this point they are:
ALP- 664, AST- 201, ALT-507 and Albumin is 4.1.
Does this normally happen? Even Ursodiol medication is not helping in controlling the level.  I saw your post in Healthcaremagic that some herbal medicines can help, can you please suggest?

Bhuimalaki reduce alkaline phosphate level and liver weight, increase during accumulation of fat along with other LFTs.
