The colon is also called the large intestine. The colon plays a very important role in how our bodies use the food we eat. Large intestine receives food from the small intestine, the food has been liquefied by the digestive process and most of the nutrients have been absorbed. The colon’s job is to dehydrate what’s left of the food and form it into stool. It does this by slowly absorbing water and electrolytes as its muscle system moves the waste along. Meanwhile, bacteria living in your colon feed on the waste and break it down further, completing the chemical part of the digestive process.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF COLON DISEASE
- Diarrhea, often with blood or pus
- Rectal bleeding — passing small amount of blood with stool
- Abdominal pain and cramping
- Rectal pain
- Urgency to defecate
- Inability to defecate despite urgency
- Weight loss
HOW AYURVEDA HELP IN COLON DISEASE
When an individual indulges in food without following rules and regulations of daily regimen and dietary habits leads to the production of Ama visha (food toxins).
This Ama visha moves towards the digestive tract to form a thick coating.
Ama and increased heat in the abdomen causes vitiation of Kapha, resulting in the loss of snigdhatha (Oiliness and mucous secretion) of the intestines.
Mucous thus eliminated will be present in the stool.
Gradually loss of properties of Kapha leads to an aggravation of Pitta.
These initiate inflammatory changes and ulcerations.
These changes result in bloody diarrhea.
Long-term advancement of the situation causes structural changes in intestinal walls leading to failure of the absorption mechanism.
Failure of absorption and impaired intestinal movement cause weakness, diarrhea, tiredness, weight loss, anemia, etc.
AIM OF AYURVEDA
- Stimulation of appetite
- Formulations that can directly digest ama
- Digestive and retain food formulations are useful in diarrhea and lack of appetite
- Drugs and formulations with wound healing properties
- Formulations that stop movement or elimination when there is bloody diarrhea
