Morbus Crohn When the bowel is inflamed
“I always have diarrhoea.” “After each meal I have painful abdominal discomfort.” “I sometimes have blood in my stools.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their suffering from Crohn’s disease.
A person who has Crohn’s disease, whose evacuations can be up to 20 times a day, is afflicted not only by the diarrhoea. Fever, loss of appetite and loss of weight, nausea and vomiting can go along with it. In this disease, certain parts of the bowel become inflamed, but not the entire bowel. The lower part of the small intestine as well as the colon are the areas most affected.
It makes no difference whether it is triggered by an autoimmune reaction against the cells of intestinal mucosa, the failure of the inherent defence against enterobacteria or an inflammation caused by specific viruses and bacteria.
What is the Vedic medicine point of view on Crohn’s disease?
Crohn’s disease from an Ayurvedic perspective.
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, Crohn’s disease starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of Crohn’s disease, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract. Everyone affected knows that food intolerance and heavy foods as well as stress and an unstable nervous system can serve as an amplifier or recurring trigger to the familiar symptoms.
In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s Crohn’s disease complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, crohn’s disease 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 Crohn’s disease, the focus can be on the elimination of toxins and the balancing of daily nutrition and behavior. 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 restore intestinal health.
