Ayurvedic Treatment of IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome Melbourne

 

 

As per the principles of ayurveda, the problem of IBS arises because of the malfunctioning of the digestive tract. When the digestive fire also known as Agni is impacted because of lifestyle factors or other reasons, it impacts the process of digestion.

 

There are three doshas or body humours Vata, Pitta and Kapha that aid in smooth digestion. One of them with Digestive fire (agni) is responsible for breaking the larger food particles into smaller ones. The second dosha acts like the mucosa layer, which lines the stomach. Further, the third dosha also aids in moving the nutrients across the walls of the small intestine. When there is an imbalance in either of these doshas in mind and body, it impacts both. so IBS can sometimes originate from stress and then sometime lead to stess. So, looking after person's mental health can also be an integral part of treatment of IBS.

 

As per ayurvedic details, IBS or Irritable bowel syndrome occurs when any of these doshas get impacted and they fail to carry out the regular functioning.
