Welcome to Healthcare Magic!
There are umpteen number of causes of jaundice.
The first step is to have a complete liver function test done.
Based on LFT report further tests may have to be done to see whether the jaundice is due to hepatitis or obstruction to bile flow.
Only after knowing the cause one can tell when you will recover from jaundice.
Viral infection is the most common cause and complete recovery can be expected in 4-8 weeks.
If it is due to obstruction ( for eg by a stone), removal of the stone will provide rapid relief.
So the first step is to find the cause of jaundice.

Hi Neethu,
You are a very clear case of jaundice.Believe me,if you just follow the diet advised seriously your condition shall improve within 15days,though it might take almost a month to recover need to get the blood count(serum bilirubin) done,this will explain the severity of your jaundice.You need to have boiled food for atleast two months,lots of fluid(coconut water),and start with liv-52.this should help you and cure you too.After a month repeat the blood count,this shall tell you whether you have recovered or not.Do avoid eating out and carry your own water,atleast for a month even after recovery,this will prevent you from any relapse of the for your indigestion you can start with any antacid,one tab daily.thats all to be done dear and you shall be to your self within a month at the most.take care.get well soon.
