Natural Remedies for Ulcerative Colitis Symptoms

Ulcerative Colitis is an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) that causes inflammation of the colon’s inner lining and the rectal wall and makes it a flare up. The flare-up causes ulcerative colitis symptoms like abdominal pain, irregular bowel movements, discolored stool, rectal bleeding, unexplained weight loss, etc. The disease sometimes results in life-threatening complications that affect other parts of the body, including the joints, skin, and eyes.

In Ayurveda, ulcerative colitis is known as Pittaja Grahani. It is caused by an aggravation of Pitta dosha in the body. Factors that imbalance Pitta include eating while watching TV or walking, excessive heat or exposure to the sun, excessive alcohol and smoking, excessive mental activity, skipping meals, consuming spicy, sour or stale foods, etc. Ayurveda offers natural treatment for ulcerative colitis that focuses on balancing the aggravated dosha and eradicate the illness symptoms from its root through personalised root-cause based treatment.

Natural home remedies for ulcerative colitis

Ayurveda also offers natural remedies that can help manage ulcerative colitis symptoms in the initial stage. Although home remedies cannot cure the condition, they may help a person find relief from the symptoms and flare-ups.
