Irritable Bowel - How Unani Medicine Can Help Treat It?

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Gaya
Irritable Bowel - How Unani Medicine Can Help Treat It?

Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS as it is more commonly known is a problem with the gastrointestinal tract, where, as the name suggests, the bowel is irritated. It is a syndrome, which is a group of symptoms, and not a single issue. The exact cause is still not known, but most people with IBS have higher levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. It is therefore considered a psychosomatic condition, where an unhealthy state of mind is reflected in body symptoms.

Unani also refers to IBS as nervous indigestion, intestinal neurosis, and irritable colon.
Symptoms: 

  1. These are worsened when there is an actual episode, which is usually during increased stress levels.
  2. Altered bowel movement (violent episodes of diarrhoea) alternating with constipation
  3. Severe stomach cramps, which is worsened with eating and better after passing stools
  4. Bloated feeling (stomach full of gas)
  5. Change in stool (flat ribbon stools or pencil stools)
  6. Feeling of incomplete stool emptying
  7. General fatigue and malaise

Diagnosis is confirmed with a combination of symptoms, clinical exam, and investigations including stool tests. The two common findings are altered intestinal motility and increased visceral perception to stimulus.
If a patient presents with constipation, the bowel motility is reduced, and in those presenting with diarrhoea, the movement of food through the colon is very rapid.

While there are no sure remedies for IBS in allopathy, natural medicine systems like Unani have effective remedies. Both single and compound drugs are tried, and in most studies, the results have been very encouraging. The commonly used products are listed below.

  1. Bel (Aegle marmelos): The fruit and leaves of bel are known for their stomach-friendly properties. It is useful in chronic diarrhoea conditions and also during typhoid. Bel juice is available for ready use. Also, the leaves can be boiled in water, and this extract can be stored and consumed over a period of time.
  2. Cumin seeds (Cuminum cyminum): This common ingredient in most curries does wonders for the stomach. It is very friendly on the stomach and soothes the stomach lining. It reduces irritation and eases bowel movement. In addition to regular usage, when IBS flares up, cumin seeds can be boiled in water, and this can be cooled and stored for use over a period of time.
  3. Amla (gooseberry) (Embilica Oficinalis): This again is useful in treating diarrhoea and has a cooling and soothing effect on the stomach. This is used in multiple forms – raw gooseberry, boiled, and even juice forms.

These are used either as a single agent or as compound agents for treating IBS. Unani also believes that controlling anxiety and emotional symptoms can help in avoiding flare-ups of IBS. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

You should do an Endoscopy first to rule out any any gastric ulcer. Try to take balance diet/good sleep/morning walk. Take Nux vom 30 once daily at night for 14 days and get back to me

Hello Vinayak Mundhe you should avoid taking udiliv and get it cured with specified medicines for gallstones which in real can help you with removing gallstones naturally. Yes! Gallstones can be cured with medicines which are combination of herbal and homeo. There will no such need to undergo surgery or operations. You can connect with me and I can provide you with treatment by which you can get cured with our medicines only. The medicines are combination of herbal and homeopathic only. I will suggest you to avoid surgery there is no need of it. You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones.

Normal human heart rate is between 60-100 per minute so your heart rate is within normal limits. Excessive anxiety and over checking just adds to the stress and so your heart rate probably rises secondary to anxiety, which is a normal thing. No need to worry, just relax, nothing further needs to be done.
