Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative Colitis (PittajGrahani) is an inflammatory bowel disease, which causes inflammation and ulceration of inner lining of the colon and rectum. The inflammation usually begins in the rectum and spreads upward to the entire colon. This disease can occur at any age but its onset is most common among people between ages of 15 - 40. Ulcerative Colitis also appears to run in some families. Autoimmune factors, food allergies, collagen disorders, genetic factors and infection are some of the factors that cause inflammation in cases of Ulcerative Colitis. According to Ayurveda, all the factors that imbalance Pitta are responsible for this problem. These include eating while watching TV or walking, excessive heat or exposure of the sun, excessive alcohol and smoking, excessive mental activity, skipping meals, spicy, sour or stale and infected foods, etc.

What special Ayurveda does in ulcerative colitis treatment?


Works on the root-cause!

Unlike other treatment procedures that jump straight to symptom management, Ayurveda plans to address the root-cause of the disease. It begins by detoxifying the body so that medicines can work better towards treating the actual root-cause of the disease.


More than just medicines

Other than medicines, the diet and lifestyle play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended. So, Ayurveda equally focuses on your diet & lifestyle.


Reduces future health risks

Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.

Ulcerative Colitis? Live healthy with Ayurveda

Understand how Jiva Ayurveda helps you live a healthy & happy life

Initial stage

Acidity, pain and indigestion are the major complaints during the initial stage of ulcerative colitis. Ayurvedic treatment at this stage works on reducing Pitta and Vata which are usually in an aggravated state. Herbal medicines are prescribed to improve digestion and manage gut acidity. Healing herbal formulations are also prescribed to heal the ulcer.

Associated with bleeding

In the intermediate stage, bleeding is also observed along with the other symptoms. Taking the new complications under consideration, the treatment at this stage works primarily to heal the ulcer and reduce bleeding. Dietary restrictions along with specific lifestyle guidelines are recommended to minimize bleeding.

Bleeding associated with weight loss

At this stage, digestion becomes severely impaired, that along with reduced food intake causes sudden weight loss. Also, loss of blood causes weakness. Ayurvedic treatment for this stage focuses on strengthening the nervous system. Special ulcer healing herbal formulations are given along with very specific dietary guidelines to reduce discomfort. Long term management helps in improving the overall quality of life and reducing complications.

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I tried medicines from different doctors, but the dull pain in my stomach became increasingly unbearable and I could not go to office. My friends suggested Ayurveda, and so I met Jiva doctor a few months ago. After 7 months of treatment here, my diet has returned to normal and the pain is also much less.
