Irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome

When the bowel functions unpredictably.

“Sometimes I don’t have a bowel movement for days, then after that I have diarrhoea.” “I feel that I don’t have control over my bowels and I often experience pain.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their irregular bowel movements when suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.

These various symptoms show that the bowels have lost their normal, regular functioning. Phases of constipation, diarrhoea and completely regular bowel movements take turns. After a bowel movement, the unpleasant symptoms decrease.

One of the causes is abnormal intestinal flora in the small intestines that often appears after taking antibiotics. Psychological burdens can also cause irritable bowel syndrome.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on irritable bowel syndrome?

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, irritable bowel syndrome starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of irritable bowel syndrome, 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 a trigger for the familiar symptoms.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s irritable bowel syndrome complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each patient with irritable bowel syndrome complaints.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of irritable bowel syndrome, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of daily nutrition can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can re-establish regular bowel movements.
