Hi there thanks for posting your query at HCM
Dear first get yourself evaluated completely by a good gastroenterologist to rule out the cause of jaundice .Jaundice could be due to multiple reasons . there could be infectious reasons . That are typhoid , but you must have swinging type of fever with that or of viral origin like in hepatatitis etc. And then only we can give specific treatment. Now i tell there are certain herbal preparation to to help improve the activity of the liver .They are Livogen , A compound named silymarin comes as 70mg or 140 mg help improve the liver function test and decrease the level of free bilirubin in the blood, .
In the diet you must avoid fried stuff .Eat of fresh fruits and vegetables .. Radish is of great help . Eat milk in the form of curd or yoghurt. Try avoid food with lots of calories putting extra load on the liver .Drink a plenty of water and juices
If possible take as much rest as possible
That really help in curing in fast recovery
first and foremost go to the doctor
take care
