Herbal Remedies for Colon Polyp – Planet Ayurveda


A colon polyp is a small clump of cells that forms on the lining of the colon (large intestines) or rectum. This polyp is an abnormal growth of the tissue which is projecting from mucous membrane. It is attached to the surface by a narrow stalk which is pedunculated. Polyps are usually found in the colon, stomach, urinary bladder and uterus. Some of the polyps are neoplasms and others are non neoplastic. Most of the polyps are small and less than half an inch wide are small, flat bumps with mushroom like stalks. Usually large intestines include the colon, rectum and anus. It is a long tube that continues from small intestines through the digestive system. It is known as a large bowel where food waste is formed into poop, stored and finally excreted. It is six inches long, known as cecum. There are 3 segments- The ascending colon (travelling up), The transverse colon (travelling to left), The descending colon (travelling down) and the sigmoid colon (headed back across to right). It is located in the lower abdominal cavity from waist down. It surrounds the small intestines in square question mark with the tail ending at the anal canal. There are separate layers of circular muscles and longitudinal muscles which allow the intestines to provide blood supply, nerve endings and allow glands to absorb.

It is one of the subtypes of personality disorder, which is usually associated with functional impairment and psychosocial disability. Narcissistic is a mental illness, it involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and excessive need for administration. People with NPD are cocky, selfish, patronizing, and demanding and are resistant to changing their behavior, and have a tendency to blame others. People with this disorder are likely to be men and people may have depression, anorexia and drug or alcohol-related problems, and many other personality disorders.
