Gastroenteritis Stomach Flu Natural Treatment Melbourne



Gastroenteritis is infection of the gut that involves inflammation of the lining of stomach, small intestine and the large intestine. It is also referred as the stomach bug, stomach flu, stomach virus or gastric flu.



The infection can last for a day or two to severe diarrhoea and vomiting for several days. Stomach virus is highly contagious and is easily communicable from one person to another.



Surfaces or objects touched by infected people are also ideal places for transmission of the disease. Therefore, it is imperative for an infected person to wash hands thoroughly with warm water for atleast 20 seconds after going to the washroom or before preparing meals.



Symptoms of Gastroenteritis



The main symptoms of gastroenteritis are watery diarrhoea and vomiting accompanied by abdominal cramps or pain. Some people may also have fever, chills, headache, muscle pain or fatigue. Dehydration is also very common in stomach flu. The symptoms may include excessive thirst, infrequent urination with dark coloured urine, dry skin, lethargy and tiredness.



Ayurvedic Treatment For Gastroenteritis



The ancient texts have mention about the medicinal and healing qualities of herbs that are used  traditioannly in the natural treatment of gastroenteritis are:



  • Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) - Giloy is rich in anti-oxidants that fight free radicals and enhance the immunity. It is also helpful in curing diseases involving pita imbalance. It helps to calm down the digestive system, helsp to remove toxins from the blood and fights disease causing bacteria.


  • Haritaki (Terminalia chebula) – Chewing haritaki fruit helps to increase the digestion power and if it is made into a paste then it helps in cleaning the bowels. Haritaki if taken with salt balances kapha, if taken with sugar it balances pita and if taken with ghee it balances vata disorders.


  • Vidanga (Embelia ribes) – Vidanga clears all types of bacterial infections from the intestines. Vidanga, if consumed with warm water or butter milk helps in treating indigestion, vomiting and flatulence.


  • Mulethi (Glycyrrhiza Glabra) – It contains Glycyrrhizin which is sweet in taste, it helps to reduce intestinal inflammation and promotes proper digestion. It may be also effective in reducing gastritis.


  • Bilva (Aegle marmelos) – It is one of the dashamoola herbs. It is useful for the treatment of vomiting, stomach cramps and intestine related problems. It is also effective in the treatment of diarrhoea and dysentery.


  • Kutaj (Holarrhena antidysenterica) - It promotes intestinal health and digestion and aids in comfortable elimination. It is very helpful in case of loss of digestion.




All the above herbs when used in different combination under the supervision of an ayurvedic practitioner can be effective natural remedies for stomach bug.



Home Remedies For Stomach Flu



Some of the home remedies that are advantageous for stomach virus are included below:



  • Ginger- It has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. It may help treat stomach infections and prevent watery stools, vomiting, nausea and abdominal cramps. Boil a tsp of ginger in a cup water and cover it for 10-15 minutes. Strain and add some honey, drink this tea 2-3 times in a day until you feel better.


  • Asafetida- Endowed with rich antiviral, antibacterial and antioxidant properties, it is a good home remedy for stomach flu. It helps to improve digestion and strengthens the digestive tract. Just add half tsp of asafoetida powder to a glass of lukewarm water. Drink this twice daily until the condition improves. Asafetida can also be added to curries and vegetables to prevent gastroenteritis. 


  • Apple cider vinegar- It may help in restoring the proper pH level in the stomach and also helps to remove harmful toxins from the body. As it is rich in pectin, so it soothes irritated stomach, reduces stomach ache, vomiting and gas. Add a tsp of unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a glass of lukewarm water and drink this 30 minutes before having your meals. Follow this routine until you feel better.



All these natural remedies for gastroenteritis may help ease the symptoms and provide relief. However if the symptoms persist, medical expert help must be sought for.



Ayurveda Medicine In Melbourne


Ayurveda believes that every individual is different with a unique constituency and therefore, needs a different herbal formulation. That is the reason that before starting a treatment, a detailed case study of the patient is taken to assess the dosha imbalance and thus prescribe a proper treatment. Panchakarma may also form an important part of the treatment so that the body can be detoxified and rejuvenated.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues

  • It was a wonderful experience with u guys.A natural way to fight the disease with no side effects of treatment.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
