How soon can I start going to the gym after recovering from Hepatitis E?

In order to resume going to the gym, it is absolutely essential that you should be back to full land total good health. If you are recovering from Hepatitis E, chances are that this process will take a good three to six months at least. Of course, this time period may also change in accordance with what kind of health you had before you were afflicted with the disease. If you were keeping poor health before you contracted Hepatitis E, then chances are that you may need as much as six months to recover. However, if you were keeping generally good health before you contracted Hepatitis E, then you would not take quite that much time. Another thing to note about this kind of Hepatitis is that it normally comes and goes away by itself. Unless you have managed to contract a very severe case, or have left it undiagnosed and unchecked for too much time, recovery should not really take you too long. Some basic steps you can take to recover quickly are delineated here. If you follow them, you can be assured that you will recover quickly and will be able to resume all normal activity soon enough, including going to the gym.

The first thing to remember is that Hepatitis E is a disease associated with the liver. This is the reason you will have to maintain extremely strict diet control when suffering from this disease. Otherwise, you will find that your liver will not recover completely and you will remain stuck with a damaged liver that will probably never function to its fullest capacity. Since the liver produces bile, which is essential for the process of digestion, any damage to the liver will first stop this and will affect your digestion. So the first thing to remember is that you must only eat food that is extremely easy to digest. This will mean sticking to simple foods such as basic vegetables and simple starches like boiled rice only. Rice too must be added to your diet only once the worst of the disease has passed. All vegetables should be boiled and eaten. You can also have them as soup. Sugar cane juice is also considered to be extremely useful in any kind of problem associated with the liver. In terms of spice, all you can have is salt to taste and a bit of lime juice. Any other spice will cause harm.
