Hepatitis B is a potentially life-threatening liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). It is a major global health problem. On the basis of clinical features, Hepatitis B can be correlated with Kamala. Kamala is caused due to aggravation of Pittadosha. Ayurvedic management of Kamala includes samshodhan and samshaman therapy which leads to break the samprapti of the disease and hence provides complete cure.

Assessment was done on the Subjective & Objective (Pathological) Parameters Before, after and during treatment. Significant improvement was observed in subjective and objective parameters after completion of treatment. From this study it can be concluded that Hepatitis B can be successfully managed with principles of Ayurveda.
