However, Ayurveda describes IBS as the imbalance or improper functioning of Agni, accumulation of Ama, or the colon disturbance caused by an increase in any dosha; Vata, Pitta, Kapha.
So, how do you treat it? After consulting with Ayurveda experts, we have jotted down three effective home remedies that can relieve you from irritable bowel:
Being a natural laxative, ginger provides relief in constipation by reducing the inflammation and promoting the digestion process. Chew it raw or drink ginger tea twice a day.
Boil one teaspoon of flaxseed (Alsi ke beej) in a cup of water and add lemon to prepare a fresh flaxseed tea. For effective results, drink it at night. It is anti-inflammatory and laxative that softens the stool and promotes proper digestion of food.
In case of diarrhea and constipation, taking one full teaspoon of Psyllium husk (Isabgol) along with fresh yogurt after the meal is beneficial. It’s a dietary fiber which absorbs the excess water for a normal bowel movement. Therefore, it should be consumed in a limited quantity only.
