Ayurvedic Treatment

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is called Grahani in Ayurveda. It indicates the functional abnormality of the intestinal tract (mostly small intestine) which is called grahani in Sanskrit. 
  • Digestive fire - agni - is responsible for the proper functioning of grahani.  Poor Agni or Mandagni leads to indigestion causing accumulation of Ama or toxins in the intestine. This leads to Irritable Bowel Syndrom.
  • Ayurvedic treatment of IBS involves enhancing digestive fire (Agni), improving the integrity of intestine, and restoring normal function of the digestive tract.
  • The herbs commonly used for this purpose are  Chitrak (Plumbago zeylanica), Bael fruit (Aegle marmelos), Kutaj (Holarrhena antidysenterica), etc.

 

Diet and Lifestyle
