The intestine is a well-known tube-like part of the body that extends from the stomach (from the lower end) to the anus (the lower opening of the digestive tract). Tuberculosis may infect any part of the body, mainly the lungs but the incidence of tuberculosis is very common in the intestines too. It is primarily due to the invasion of bacteria in the body and affected the intestines. In this article, we will discuss intestinal tuberculosis and the ayurvedic aspect of intestinal tuberculosis.
Intestinal tuberculosis is a primary infection from ingesting milk infected with bovine tuberculosis or as a secondary spread of pulmonary tuberculosis following the swallowing of infective material coughed up from the lungs. The infection begins in the ileum where the abundant lymphoid tissue traps the organisms. A typical granulomatous reaction may lead to hyperplastic thickening of Peyer’s patches and surrounding bowel wall and create necrotic ulcers on the mucosal surface. These ulcers extend along the encircling lymphatic system of the small bowel. They may penetrate deeply and even perforate. In both ulcerative and hyperplastic patterns, small miliary tubercles are frequently found in the subserosal layer and sometimes throughout the peritoneal cavity. Intestinal involvement may lead to diarrhea, intestinal cramps, and abdominal pain but in many cases, the symptoms are masked by the infection elsewhere.

The ayurvedic point of view of this disease. The ayurvedic point of view of Intestinal Tuberculosis is mainly correlated with Rajayakshma. Rajayakshma is a group of disorders in which all three doshas are aggravated and it also affects Sapta dhatu in our body. Rajayakshma is also known as the king of all diseases. It is caused by the simultaneous vitiation of all the three doshas as a result of suppression of natural urges, performing activities more than one’s strength, and irregular food intake. In rajayakshma, patients become emaciated due to a reduction in the number of tissue elements because of the obstruction to the channels of rasa circulation. Excessive semen ejaculation is also associated with emaciation in this condition.
Rajayaksma is followed by many diseases and acts as a primary factor in the origin of many disorders. It is also known as Ksaya and shosha. Sosha is known as dried rasa dhatus, which leads to poor strength and activities which are called Ksaya (diminished strength). The Rajyakshma is a Kapha Pradhan tridosha vyadhi associated with vitiation of pachaka pitta and kledaka Kapha. Dusya included Dhatu like rasa and rakta. Srotodushti types include sanga (a coalition of dosha) and Vimarggamana ( impaired pathway or obstructing the channels).
