Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a metabolic dysfunction. If left untreated, it can proceed to cirrhosis of the liver and hepatocellular carcinoma. This condition can further lead to other metabolic problems, such as diabetes and eventually, coronary artery disease. Modern medicine can only provide limited assistance with a basic treatment plan that includes lifestyle and dietary adjustments. Ayurveda, with its comprehensive range of medicines, can cure the disease at an early stage and prevent serious complications. We present a case of stage 3 NAFLD, which was treated with Arogyavardhinivati, Panchakolachurna, and Mahatiktaghrita. The patient's condition improved, and ultrasound evidence of pathology remission was seen. The purpose of this case study is to explore the mechanism of action of the medications indicated above, as well as the Ayurvedic approach to treatment. Effective approach to disease care could make a world of difference in the early stages of disease.
