Chronic diarrhoea When the bowel is overactive
“Without much warning, I need to dash to the bathroom.” “The stool bursts out explosively.” “I get cramps prior to each bowel movement.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their chronic diarrhoea complaints.
In the case of chronic diarrhoea a bowel movement usually happens many times a day. It is always liquid along with some solid pieces of stool. Acute diarrhoea can be caused by food poisoning, viruses, bacteria or fungus and it can be accompanied by fever.
A definite cause can often not be made in the case of chronic diarrhoea and a high body temperature is absent. Nevertheless, the frequent and urgent running to the toilet constrains the patients in their daily lives and weakens them in the long term.
What is the Vedic medicine point of view on chronic diarrhoea?
Chronic diarrhea from an Ayurvedic perspective.
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, chronic diarrhoea starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of chronic diarrhoea, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract. Everyone affected knows that heavy foods and food intolerance as well as stress can serve as an amplifier for the familiar symptoms.
In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s chronic diarrhoea complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, chronic diarrhoea is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. For example, in the case of chronic diarrhea, the focus can be on the elimination of toxins as well as balancing the daily diet. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help you to lead a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can make defecation calmer again.
