Down with Hepatitis? 7 Easy Ways to Cope with It
September 11, 2019
The problem with Hepatitis is that it does not show up any visible symptoms, so coping with it becomes a huge problem. Besides, it has no cure. Anti-viral medication that can cure this condition is available but expensive for most people.
The social stigma attached to suffering from Hepatitis is another problem for patients, despite which there are several ways of managing this condition and putting yourself on the track to good health. People don’t realize this is a viral infection.
Here are some coping strategies for Hepatitis:
Hepatitis is associated with unprotected sed or drug abuse through injections, hence it is stigmatized. Instead of one isolating oneself from society—a reaction due to ignorance—you can educate yourself on the way the virus works and available treatment options.
Accept the Reality
Don’t be gloomy about suffering from Hepatitis. Be positive and work to overcome your situation.
Be practical about your recovery. Ask your doctor for a referral to a social worker who can walk you through the system and help you accept your situation and work through it better.
Hepatitis can bring on a lot of stress that impacts all parts of your body. Instead of ignoring it, try and include the following in your daily routine: yoga, meditation, exercise, controlled breathing, Tai Chi, guided imagery and progressive muscle relaxation.
Along with Hepatitis come depression and anxiety. If you suffer from these, go to a therapist experienced in treating chronic diseases and take counselling or appropriate treatment. Else, see a psychiatrist.
Obesity increases liver damage risk, so work to lose weight and blood pressure to protect your liver. You can do this by exercising for 15-30 minutes every day.
Diet and Nutrition
Eat a healthy diet of beans, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fish, skinless poultry and dairy-rich in protein and legumes. Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day. Avoid eating red meat, saturated fat and reduce carbs.
