Fistula - Ways It Can Be Treated!

N.D.D.Y, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), specialist in ayurvedic ksharsutra therapy

Fistula - Ways It Can Be Treated!

The anal area is a highly vascular area, and if not maintained hygienically, it can lead to health issues including infection. The anal canal can get infected quite easily and if these infected parts begin to discharge pus, it could leak through the anal canal. This is known as anal fistula, and can be caused due to:

  1. Unhygienic toilet habits leading to infected anal region, which can pass up the anal canal
  2. Can be caused due to excessive straining, which can be due to constipation
  3. Post-surgical effect, where an existing anal abscess was drained

Symptoms:

  1. The fistula could be constantly draining pus or blood, producing a constant moist feeling in the anal region
  2. In some, it could be intermittent draining with full dry spells in between
  3. There could also be pain, which is constant and throbbing and worse with sitting
  4. Pus discharge can produce a foul smell
  5. The skin around the anus can be itchy and irritated
  6. Tenderness and swelling of the area
  7. Constipation and painful bowel movements
  8. Fever and chills, due to generic infection

Management: Prevention and treatment are both essential in managing anal fistula.

  1. Prevention is mainly achieved through healthy toilet hygiene habits, as this is the main cause for filstula formation
  2. Treatment would include para-surgical therapy ( non-invasive ), which should be followed by healthy toilet habits and good diet habits including fibrous meals to avoid constipation. 

The following are two well-established surgical corrective measures.

Khsarsutra:

  1. Ayurveda has a well-established technique known as ksharsutra wherein a medicated thread is used to drain the fistula and to prevent further fistula formation.
  2. A linen thread is smeared with latex, curcuma longa, and Apamarg Kshar which are known for their multiple healthy benefits – anti-hermorrhoidal, anti-inflammatory, and coagulatory properties.
  3. The linen thread is smeared with these herbs in layers and takes a few days to prepare.
  4. This thread is then allowed to stay in the fistula tract, which allows for healing and prevents pus accumulation and/or closure
  5. This is followed by a complete liquid diet, which is gradually moved to a semi-solid diet and if required sitz baths

Ayurvedic gugglu ksharsutra therapy:

Ayurveda is a thousands of years old system of holistic healing through herbs. It is not only based on drugs but a healthy diet, good lifestyle, staying happy and different Ayurvedic treatments which have no side effects and are absolutely safe to use. According to Ayurveda a body suffers from a disorder because of disparity in the 3 Doshas. Ayurveda deals with balancing the Doshas and healing the body. Synchronizing the body, lifestyle with nature and its paradigm.

The Doshas have to be balanced, one dominant or other ignored causes disorders, as a result the person falls sick. Here, we will talk about fistula in Ano and Ayurvedic treatments for fistula in Ano.

Anal Fistula is a two-sided canal. One end of tube opens up inside the anal canal and the other opening is near the anus on the skin. This leads to leakage of stool from the other opening, oozing of pus leading to discomfort, pain, and sometimes fever as well.

Ayurvedic herbs are especially known for keeping the digestive system in good shape by maintaining the right balance of the Pitta element that maintains the right balance of the digestive fire. According to Ayurvedic principles, any disorder in the body is a result of a faulty digestive fire that manages its functions. It is very important to restore the imbalance of digestive physiology to heal the anal fistulas.

Know How To Treat IBS with Ayurveda!

Know How To Treat IBS with Ayurveda!

A surprising large number of people suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a condition characterized by a combination of stomach pain, abdominal discomfort and abnormal bowel movement such as diarrhea or constipation. This condition is not life threatening, but can make you very uncomfortable and increase your risk of suffering from other colon problems. Ayurveda can be very effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome. Here are a few tips.

A healthy diet
Diet is one of the most important facets of Ayurveda. To prevent bowel difficulties eat plenty of fiber and easy to digest foods. Cumin seeds, pomegranate and buttermilk can also aid digestion and prevent this condition. Drinking warm water can also aid digestion. On the other hand, curd, junk food, acidic beverages and food that causes bloating and excessive gas production such as potatoes, cabbage and cauliflower should be reduced or removed from your daily diet.

Yoga asanas
Yoga works on the physical and psychological levels of a person. It also massages and strengthens a number of different organs. Stress is one of the biggest causes of irritable bowel syndrome. Yoga can help combat stress and alleviates anxiety and aids relaxation. A few basic yoga asanas that can help ease pain and treat this condition are:

  1. Marjariasana
  2. Pavanamuktasana
  3. Downward facing dog
  4. Ardhamatsyendrasena
  5. Bhujangasana
  6. Dhanurasana

Panchakarma
This is an Ayurvedic cleansing process that enhances the metabolic process and eliminates toxins from the body. Panchakarma literally means 5 techniques or forms of treatment. This includes vamana, virechana, basti, nasya and raktamokshana. These processes make the mind and body more receptive to food and medicines that treat irritable bowel syndrome.

  1. Probiotics: Probiotics supplement your natural gut bacteria and help break down complex foods. It can also help alleviate bloating, abdominal pain and regularize bowel movements. Probiotics can be found in oatmeal, whole grains and a number of fruits and vegetables like asparagus, onions and bananas.
  2. Herbs: Ayurveda also utilizes the properties of herbs to treat health conditions. Half a spoon of turmeric taken twice a day can help reduce intestinal inflammation and reduce bloating and abdominal pain. Drinking a concoction made by steeping spoonful of dried mint leaves or coriander seeds in hot water for ten minutes can also help deal with this condition. Equal quantities of powdered dry ginger, pepper and pippali can help regulate digestion. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Profuse bloody diarrhea is due to organisms like shigella. You need course of antibiotic and the symptom takes a while to settle if not then you may need further tests like sigmoidoscopy.
