Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel diseases which causes symptoms like chronic diarrhoea, abdominal pain, blood in the stool, ulceration of intestines, reduced appetite and weight loss, and in advanced cases, formation of fistulas and abscesses. Young white patients staying in urban areas and with a family history of the disease, or history of smoking, are more at risk for Crohn's disease. This disease occurs in patches inside the digestive tract and can often involve the entire tissue of the intestines. Crohn's disease is usually treated in the modern system of medicine with steroids, anti- inflammatory drugs, and immune suppressant medicines; however, the response to these medicines is not very encouraging.

Ayurvedic herbal medicines are very effective in the treatment and correction of digestive tract abnormalities. Herbal medicines reduce inflammation in the intestines, improve digestive secretions, help in the digestion, and also optimize absorption of digested food elements. Herbal medicines also aid in normal bowel evacuation. In addition, Ayurvedic herbal medicines also treat inflammation and heal ulceration in the intestines. Ayurvedic herbal treatment is therefore very effective in the treatment and cure of chronic conditions of the intestinal tract such as Crohn's disease.

In addition, Ayurvedic herbal medicines boost the immune status of the affected individual, which is mostly compromised in Crohn's disease. Immune regulation of the body helps in prompt healing of the ulceration in the intestines and prevents complications like fistulas and abscesses. Ayurvedic herbal medicines also remove toxins generated in the blood of affected individuals. In addition, herbal medicines aid in digestion and absorption of food, and therefore help the affected individual to gradually put on weight. Most people affected with Crohn's disease usually require Ayurvedic herbal treatment from about six to eight months, depending upon the severity of the condition, and the immune status of the patient. Overall, almost all people affected with this disease recover completely from the condition provided they take regular treatment.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment is thus very effective in the management and treatment of Crohn's disease.
