Let’s Know about IBS

Consistent constipation and diarrhoea is a common disorder that can affect people from any age group. Most people avoid taking any treatment for it which invariably affects their daily life adversely. Medically, it is termed Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and if it continues for a long time, the patient may experience chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety. Ayurvedic treatment for IBS offers a natural, detoxifying, and permanent solution for this problem.

What Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a large intestine disorder that includes cramping, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, and abdominal restlessness. It is a chronic condition that needs to be addressed without any delays. As it progresses, the patient experiences severe signs like increased discomfort, anxiety, depression. Long-term IBS increases the risk for colorectal cancer, so it is better not to avoid its symptoms and avail treatment as soon as possible.

Cramping and Abdominal Pain
Constipation
Gas and Bloating

Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Cramping
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal Pain

The symptoms are not the same for all patients, however, people suffering from IBS have both diarrhoea and constipation from time to time. Bloating goes away once the patient has had a bowel movement.

Causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Severe Infection: IBS can result from long-term viral or bacterial diarrhoea. If the activity of bacteria increases in the intestines, it can lead to IBS. Immediate IBS treatment is recommended under such conditions.
  • Abnormal Muscle Contraction: Our muscles contract when food moves from one point to another. When these contractions are longer than normal they result in bloating, diarrhoea, and gas. When they are shorter than normal, it results in constipation, dry, and hard stools. Both conditions are strong symptom of IBS.
  • Nervous System: Improper or faulty functioning of digestive system nerves cause high discomfort when abdomen moves from gas to stool. Miscommunication between the brain and intestines due to poor signals lead to abnormal changes in the normal digestive process. This leads to constipation, diarrhoea, and a lot of pain.
  • Stressful Lifestyle: Hectic lifestyle, disturbed eating habits, and traumatic experiences at an early age tend to develop into IBS in a long run.
  • Change In Microbial Activity in Food Canal: Researches suggest that microbes present in the intestines of IBS patients are different from that of healthy people.

Diagnosis and Ayurvedic Treatment for IBS

There are no definitive tests for IBS. Your doctor would look into your medical history, lifestyle, physical exam, and some preliminary tests to see if you have any other infections or not. The prime emphasis will be on symptoms and causes of the problem.

Ayurveda correlates IBS with Grahini Rog. Vitiation of Pitta and Vata doshas results in Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Over-consumption of unhealthy food items like junk food, spicy food, over-fried and heavy food weakens the digestive system which sometimes results in IBS. Ayurvedic Irritable Bowel Syndrome treatment focuses on normalising Pitta and Vata doshas with some very specific diet changes. Along with, Panchakarma therapies and herbal medicines are used to detoxify the system and rectify the faulty processes. All these work together to improve and restore the healthy bacteria in the gut and improve digestive fire.

Preventions for IBS

The best Irritable Bowel Syndrome cure lies in its prevention. Here are a few things you may do to prevent IBS:

  • Avoid eating more than 3 portions of fresh fruit daily.
  • Try to consume less than 3 cups of tea or coffee on a daily basis.
  • Get in the habit of eating regularly. Avoid skipping meals.
  • If you are in a habit of eating too quickly, you must improve it and eat a little slowly.
  • Stay away from frizzy and alcoholic drinks.

Diet and Lifestyle Changes

  • A patient suffering from IBS must stay away from fried, over-spicy, and heavy food.
  • They must consume buttermilk, lots of salad, and a fibre-rich diet.
  • Sugary and gastric food items are also a big no-no for IBS patients.
  • Regular physical exercise and yoga are also recommended for IBS patients.
  • If the problem is caused by stress, then the patient may need to improve his/her sleeping pattern and working schedule.

The Benefits of Ayurveda for IBS treatment at Prakash Nethralaya

Investigates The Root Cause

The Ayurvedic approach to illness looks for the fundamental causes of the disease rather than symptoms. The main causative factor of the disease is removed from the patient's daily routine. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment is decided from the available two directions as per the classics. First one is Shodhan (detoxification) to clean the body with the help of Panchakarma therapies and the another is Shaman (balancing the doshas) by using Ayurveda medicines, diet correction and lifestyle adjustments. Detoxification with Panchakarma improves the efficacy of Ayurveda medicines in chronic and advanced cases.

Medicines Are Safe To Take

Ayurveda medications are not manufactured in a synthetic or chemical form but in their natural state. Because of this, the herbs are gentle on the body, and there is no chance of side effect or adverse reactions, regardless of the length of time the patient takes them. At Prakash Nethralaya, we use the best quality Ayurveda medicines to ensure the safest and fastest recovery. There is in house processing and dispensing of the medicines for our patients. A few medicines are made available from the good manufacturing companies also.

Uses Holistic Strategy

Ayurveda is based on the idea that each person has a distinct personality and body type and, as a result, their treatment. Ayurveda places more emphasis on treating the patient rather than treating the ailment. The physical composition of two different people with the same ailment may need a different therapeutic approach. An Ayurveda expert at Prakash Nethralaya uses this body type analysis and then reaches at a conclusion of diagnosis and the line of treatment. Accordingly our doctors prescribe the diet, lifestyle changes, yoga, Ayurveda medicines, and Panchakarma therapies.
