How to Find Best Treatment for Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative Colitis-An Overview

Ulcerative Colitis is a debilitating condition in which the inflammation of the inner layer of the colon (the large intestine) leads to the formation of ulcers. As the condition worsens, the ulcers cause the swelling of the colon, and the subsequent narrowing of the intestinal area; thereby making the defecation process difficult for the sufferers of this condition.

The swollen and painful colon gives the sufferers of Ulcerative Colitis a continual feeling of fullness, and makes the defecation process nightmarish for them. They feel as if they are perpetually going to pass the stools, and are also alarmed by the fact that the stools are often accompanied by blood, pus or mucous.

Ulcerative Colitis is, thus, a disease which basically incapacitates the sufferers due to severe diarrhoea and joint pains. In addition, this disease also results in soreness of the digestive tract and scarring of bile ducts and pancreas. The sufferers of Ulcerative Colitis can gradually undergo a phase of depression, in which they may have negative thoughts about life as a whole.

herbal-remedies-for-ulcerative-colitis

According To Ayurveda

  • Ayurveda calls this illness as Grahani. This is often caused by the build-up of toxins (ama) as a result of excessive heat/ pitta that increase by the intake of sour, bitter and spicy food, alcohol, tobacco and caffeinated beverages. Extremely negative emotions like anger, hate also stress additionally worsen heat within the body.
  • Aama (a noxious element) is incredibly sticky that deposits itself between the villi within the intestines, forming a smooth coating that impairs the normal functions of the intestines to create mal absorption.

Arjuna capsules

  • These capsules are prepared from the standardized extract of the bark of the ‘Arjuna’ (Terminalia Arjuna) herb, which has proven properties for healing wounds. These capsules are extremely effective in providing protection to the inner parts of the intestines, and avoiding injuries resulting from stress, free radicals and other damaging substances.
