Tomato, radish and carrot
We all know that red ripe tomatoes are very good for health. But these juicy tomatoes are very important in the treatment of jaundice. Juice of tomato is advised for the patients of jaundice. It should be taken early in the morning. Even the juice of radish leaves or carrot is effective in this treatment.
Castor oil has been an age old recipe in the treatment of jaundice. Although, the oil is available everywhere in the market the treatment is more effective if the juice of fresh castor leaves is given everyday in the morning to the patient. One of the most important aspects of this treatment is dietary restrictions. No oily food or heavy fatty diet should be taken during this treatment as the intake of castor oil or juice can make the patient vomit out the whole thing.

A patient of jaundice should take sugarcane juice by adding ginger and lemon juice. Ginger helps to wash out the toxins while lemon juice induces growth of liver cells and also protects them.
Regular bowel movements are very important during jaundice as they help to throw the toxins of liver infections outside the body. Orange juice if taken on empty stomach regulates the bowel movement and helps in fast recovery from jaundice.
