Ulcerative Colitis & Ayurveda

The name given to ulcerative colitis in Ayurveda is Pittaj Grahani. The name by itself indicates that the disorder occurs due to the imbalance of the Pitta element in the body. However, there is also the involvement of the Vata dosha in varying degrees for a person afflicted with this disorder.

It is an inflammatory disease of the bowels that usually begins in the rectum and spreads throughout the colon with the passage of time. This disease can occur at any age for an individual. However, it is most commonly detected for those people between the ages of 15 and 40. It has also been observed that some individuals are genetically predisposed to having ulcerative colitis.

The main cause of ulcer is thought to be because of excessive consumption of foods that aggravate Pitta Dosha. The initial lifestyle changes such as extended exposure to the sun, ingestion of spicy and sour food, excessive smoking and drinking, etc., tend to damage the rakta dhatus or the blood tissue. This leads to the formation of ama or toxin which is deposited between the villi located in the intestines. Ayurvedic treatment for Ulcer involves removal or the ama, restoring sound absorption condition in the body.

Other factors that contribute to ulcerative colitis in an individual are food allergies, autoimmune factors, genetic factors, disorders of the collagen, and infection. 

Slowly, a smooth coating is formed and this degrades the normal functioning of the intestines. It also lowers the immunity. Ultimately, the accumulation of the doshas cause blockages of the Kapha and Pitta channels and lead to inflammation, infection, accumulation of mucus and edema. At Leelajani Ayur Care, our Ayurvedic treatment for ulcerative colitis is based on the principles such as Ama detoxification, Raktashodhak,  Pitta shamak, ulcer recuperating, and general dietary help.
