IBS and AYURVEDA

In ayurveda, we have some basic rules for quality life one of such rule is “If your GIT ( Gastero intestinal Tract ) is good you can enjoy good life”. It was told by our grandparents to eat only when you feel hungry and eat according to your stomach. Always, eat less then what you want because totally filling your stomach with food can cause improper digestion of food when these improper digested food particles circulate in our body they cause disease. But we in modern lifestyle act totally against these rules. We eat whenever we want without any hunger. When are at home, we eat breakfast, lunch , dinner then we go for shopping we eat burger or chat papri etc., we go to someone’s house we eat biscuits and drink tea or cold drinks. We never give rest to our stomach. Food is first pillar of Quality life. It act as fuel of our body. But what will happen if we have food but improper functioning system(GIT) to digest or use this fuel. GIT is a type of pipe where food is chewed in small particles in mouth then digested in stomach, energy from food is absorbed from intestine, waste particle is stored in rectum to excrete after proper interval. Food takes its specified time in each part of GIT. But what will happen if this specified time become shorter. Then you will feel colic pain stomach which relieve after defecation. You feel urge to defecate 30 mins to 1 hour after meal. You start thinking thrice before eating any food. This type of disease is called Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

In this disease food is either poorly or improperly digested. Signs and symptoms include generalized weakness, lethargy, urgency to defecate, stomach ache etc. There are many causes of IBS and some common found causes are food allergy, junk foods, lactose intolerance, inflammation of intestine, thyroid disease etc. Treatment of IBS is only targeted to treat symptoms.
