Digestive Issues

There are a various number of digestive disorders such as Gallstones, Celiac Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Hemorrhoids and Diverticulitis.

Severe heartburn or a condition known as GERD, which is an abbreviation for Gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a common digestive disorder, it causes severe discomfort by affecting the lower part of the oesophagus, namely the lower oesophagal sphincter or LES, which is the muscular ring found between the stomach and the oesophagus. This particular affliction affects many people, although it is more common in adults, it is especially common to find it affecting a pregnant woman, who can suffer heavily from acid indigestion, reflux and heartburn that is caused by GERD

Inflammatory bowel disease, also known as IBD, is, in fact, an umbrella term that is used to describe digestive disorders that are involved with any chronic inflammation which affects the digestive tract. There are various types of conditions that fall under the IBD umbrella, but one of the most common of them all is ulcerative colitis, which is a condition that causes long-lasting inflammation and sores and ulcers in the innermost lining of the large intestine (your colon) and your rectum.

Another of the common conditions that fall under the IBD umbrella is Crohn’s disease, which is one of the more commons types of inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn’s disease is known to be able to cause inflammation in any part of the digestional tract. However, it mostly affects the tail end of the small intestine, compared to ulcerative colitis, which is generally known to affect your large intestine.

Not to be confused with IBD, is the condition known as IBS, an abbreviation for Irritable bowel syndrome, IBS is a common disorder that mainly affects the large intestine. There are various signs and symptoms attached to IBS, some of which include; diarrhoea or constipation, or both, abdominal cramps, gas, bloating, abdominal pain and cramping. Irritable bowel syndrome is what is considered a chronic condition, and one that will require long-term management.

It is well known in Ayurveda and is, in fact, one of the cornerstones of the science that proper digestion is the key to overall good health. Ama (a toxin) is caused by improperly or inadequately digested food, which is absorbed and stored in the body. Ama could also be mental affliction, due to various negative thoughts and stresses, which in turn have a significant effect on your digestive system.

This stored Ama affects the secretion of various digestive juices. This leads to low Agni (Agni is your digestive metabolism), an impaired Digestive metabolism; precipitating further production of Ama, which sets in motion a vicious cycle of production and storage of Ama.

Severe heartburn or a condition known as GERD, which is an abbreviation for Gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a common digestive disorder, it causes severe discomfort by affecting the lower part of the oesophagus, namely the lower oesophagal sphincter or LES, which is the muscular ring found between the stomach and the oesophagus. This particular affliction affects many people, although it is more common in adults, it is especially common to find it affecting a pregnant woman, who can suffer heavily from acid indigestion, reflux and heartburn that is caused by GERD

Ama blocks and clogs the intestines and other channels within the body, The development and production of ama has many causes, for example ingesting foods which are incompatible will directly affect your agni due to the toxins or ama created by these poorly digested foods. A symptom of the existence of Ama in the large intestinal tract, small intestinal tract or stomach is the formation and development of various digestive disorders within the body.
