Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS is primarily a gastrointestinal disorder, which is often characterised by stomach pain and often cramps as well.
There is no specific organic cause for this disease and the diagnosis of the same has to be done on the basis of the symptoms.
Mainly, in this disease; the bowel movement of a person is irregular and intends to alter significantly. In few cases, people may experience alternate diarrhoea and constipation as well.
The symptoms of IBS can differ from one person to another. Here are some of the commonly shown symptoms among people who are suffering from this gastrointestinal disorder.
There can be a lot of other secondary symptoms as well. Some of which may include disturbance in sleep pattern and even spotting of blood in stools. Sometimes stools can take up a black colour too.
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.
