IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

In Ayurvedic literature, the symptoms, called ‘Grahani’, resemble most of the IBS symptoms, which can occur due to several factors: Improper Eating, Drinking, Exercising too soon after eating, Forcing or restraining natural urges, taking chemical drugs, psychological issues, etc.

‘Grahani’ is a pathological condition of the function and integrity of the GI tract, especially of the small intestine tract, which is the site of enzymes (Digestion), of absorption of nutrition from food, and the release of undigested food to the large intestines.

It includes symptoms like Diarrhea, Constipation, alteration of Diarrhea and Constipation, Gas, Distension, Abdominal pain (Severe in Vata-type) and white coated Tongue.

Nidana (Etiology)

According to Ayurvedic literature, the most important causes of IBS is ‘Vata’ vitiation and low ‘Ojas’, caused by stress and different diet and lifestyle imbalances, quality of food (Extreme tastes and qualities), Overeating, certain lifestyle (Stress, too much traveling, ignoring bodily urges and irregular sleeping patterns). ‘Pitta’ vitiation can be combined with ‘Vata’, but ‘Vata’  is predominant. Also, food intolerance (Dairy or grains), rather than food allergy could be present in 33-66% of IBS patients. An imbalance between two Neurotransmitters, Serotonin and norepinephrine may cause problems. Therefore, the interaction between the brain and gut is disturbed.

After taking a detailed medical history, Doshic predominance is assessed. Understanding of ‘Dosha’ involvement is important and unique and it is an essential tool in the Ayurvedic healing of IBS. Along with the emphasis on stress management through meditation, ‘Pranayama’ etc, a healthy routine (Dincharya) also plays an important role in the management of IBS.

Ayurvedic Diet along with herbs is advised as per the individual’s body type.
