Natural Cure for Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis is explained to be formed as a consequence of inflammatory conditions inside the lining of the colon which is the last portion of your large intestine leading to rectal opening. It is mainly caused because of the faulty immune response of our body as it gets activated thinking about the food we eat, the good gut bacteria inside us and the cells lining the inner walls of the colon are invaders. They start acting against it via white blood cells leading to the formation of inflammation and ulcers. In Ayurveda it is explained as a Pitta predominant Vata vyadhi which affects the Purusha Vaha srotas (excretory pathway). It is managed in Ayurveda by balancing the normal levels of Vata and Pitta doshas.

Top 7 Pain Relieving Remedies in Ayurveda Without Aspirin

Painkillers or analgesics are one of most widely categories of medicines. Analgesics are used at every instance, either it is traumatic or other complications. These are used for a variety of health conditions such as joints pain, migraine, arthritis, stomach pain, toothache etc.

The side effects of these analgesics are obvious such as nausea, diarrhoea, pruritus (itching sensation), tenderness, jaundice and severe pain in the right upper quarter of the abdomen.
