Ulcerative colitis, also known as Pitta Grahani, primarily involves pitta dosha with a little vata involvement. Having too many pitta aggravating food items damages the Rakhta Dhatu (blood tissues) and the Mamsa Dhatu (muscle tissue). This leads to the formation of ama that gets deposited in the intestines, which impairs their functioning and depletes ojas. Vata dosha in the lower colon is also aggravated. It blocks the pitta and kapha channels, causing inflammation, edema, and mucous formation.
Ayurveda recommends simple home remedies that help soothe the symptoms.
Take ¼ tsp haldi (turmeric powder), ¼ tsp jeera (cumin seed powder), and a pinch of salt. Have it twice a day with a glassful of buttermilk.
Mix adrak (ginger powder), kali mirch (dark pepper powder), and pippali (long pepper powder). Take ½ tsp of this powder with water twice a day.
Make a powder preparation of dalchini (cinnamon), heeng (asafetida), laung (clove), and elaichi (green cardamom). Have 1 tsp of this powder twice a day with water
Prepare a mix of ¼ tsp jayaphal (nutmeg powder) and ½ tsp amla (powdered Indian gooseberry). Have this before sleeping with lukewarm water.
