Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative Colitis:

According to modern science, the causes of ulcerative colitis are  unknown till date but Ayurveda has  a command  over this and over the treatment for this disease.

“Agni” is said to digest the consumed food and it converts the  consumed food into body elements. “Agni” resides by the organ called  “Grahani” when food is pushed down from stomach to Grahani. It is  expected that it will stay for some time in Grahani where there will be a sanskar (digestion action) of agni. But when function of “Grahani” get  disturbed it loses its ability to hold the food in it and the undigested /  partially digested food is pushed ahead. If the required nutrient is not absorbed properly, the undigested part has to be retained for  a long time in the colon part (large intestines ). Here absorption of  nutrients from the food takes place on a large basis. In order to absorb  required nutrients colon needs to perform again and again and load on  it goes to increasing which ultimately leads to inflammation and  swelling of colon which is called “Colitis”

When the protective layers of the colon goes on thinning. Ulcer  formation occurs which is called “Ulcerative Colitis” so the holding  capacity of Grahani (Colon) goes on decreasing and it shows  followings symptoms.

  • loose motions.
  • Constipation.
  • Defecation / frequent motions just after having meals
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Fever, weakness.
  • Sticky motions, nausea.

In ulcerative colitis patients, when bleeding is more it shows  complications like Paleness / Anemia, swelling , difficulty in  breathing.

The “Agni Chikitsa” along with treatment strengthening the “Grahani”  part , Pachan Chikitsa and “Basti” treatment from panchkarma shows  marvellous results in Ulcertive Collitis Patients.

Basti is the Treatment where medicinal decoctions (Kadha) along with  wound (ulcer) healing oils and ghees are pushed by anorectic route  into the intestines. Basti is very a precise and promising treatment  for bleeding and motions in Ulcertive Collitis so AgniChikitsa and Basti  are a complete treatment in order to get complete relief from Ulcertive Collitis.
