Wilson disease is a rare genetic disorder that causes too much copper to accumulate in different parts of the body. A small amount of copper is needed to stay healthy but too much amount of copper in the body is poisonous.

In Wilson disease, copper builds up in the liver, eyes, and brain and also in other organs. High levels of copper in the body can cause life-threatening organ damage. ATP7B is a gene that prevents the body to get rid of extra copper. The symptoms typically begin between the age group of 12 and 23.

People suffering from Wilson disease cannot release copper from the liver at a normal rate, due to the mutation of ATP7B gene. When the copper storage capacity of the liver is exceeded, copper is released into the bloodstream and travels to other organs including brain, eyes and kidneys.

Allopathic treatment includes the prescription of medicines which include chelating agents which prompt the organs to release copper into the bloodstream. The copper is then filtered from the kidneys and thus released into the urine but when liver damage is severe, a liver transplant is recommended but Wilson disease can be cured by Ayurvedic natural remedies. Planet Ayurveda offers combination of natural remedies which cure the Wilson disease without causing any side-effects.

Wilson disease is often misdiagnosed because it is rare and its symptoms are similar to those of the other health conditions.


  • A build-up of copper in the liver results in ongoing liver disease such as—jaundice, yellowing of skin, fatigue, edema, swelling of liver and spleen.
  • A build-up of copper in the central nervous system results in neurological symptoms such as – tremors, uncontrolled movements, difficulty in swallowing, sluggish speech, difficulty in physical co-ordination, muscle stiffness, behavioural changes etc.
  • Other symptoms include—anaemia, low platelets, slower blood clotting, presence of amino acids, carbohydrates, uric acid in the urine.
  • In the eyes, copper deposition results in the rusty-brown ring around the edge of the iris and in the rim of the cornea.


If the parents or siblings of an individual have been diagnosed with this condition, then there is a risk of developing this disease. Diagnosing the conditions as early as possible dramatically increases the chances of successful treatment.


Diagnosing Wilson's disease can be challenging because its signs and symptoms are often indistinguishable from other liver diseases such as – hepatitis.

Tests and Procedures used to diagnose Wilson's disease include:-

  • Blood and urine tests
  • Eye examination
  • Removing a sample from liver tissue for testing
  • Genetic testing


According to Ayurveda, Wilson disease is due to the increase in Vata-Pitta doshas under the class of beej dosha. In Ayurveda, there is wonderful treatment to manage this condition successfully.
