I am having a little bit of 'bowel problem since recently. Although I have it regularly, but I feel it is not clear At times I have to do for the 2nd time in a day.

If it is not too frequent then just some lifestyle modification can take care of it... Like drinking water enough also taking high fiber food not taking junk food and oily or deep fried food...etc.. If these does not help then consult for homoeopathic treatment.. and don't take any churans..

Pl. Give me a permanent remedy for ULCERATIVE COLITIS for which Iam taking MESACOL 400 MG FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is a remitting and relapsing disease and the medication like Mesacol is the only remedy If your symptoms are severe, you will need to be hospitalized to correct the effects of dehydration and malnutrition that diarrhea causes. Surgery is necessary when there is massive bleeding, chronic and debilitating symptoms, perforation of your colon, or if there is a risk of cancer. A barium enema and a colonoscopy can detect these serious problems. Surgical options include proctocolectomy with ileostomy (the most common surgical treatment) and ileoanal anastomosis.

General Physician,
Sir I have always a stomach problem like to much gas and always feel like to go potty.
Dear lybrate-user, I am sorry to hear your problem and also that you are not able to get relief with your treatment. It's an infection and can be managed with medications. I'm sure your problem won't end with frequent potty. There must be gas and stomach pain along with it. I can help you with your problems. Please feel free to talk.

The solution to your problem is very simple. Change your lifestyle. And you will find that your digestion has improved considerably. Hair fall is a consequence of long term indigestion and low nutrition This can also be corrected with a healthy diet 1. Eat at the right time daily. long gap between meals does not help. ensure you include enough fibres in your diet to promote digestion - one bowl each of fresh fruits and boiled vegetables will give you sufficient fibre. Also included natural digestive aids like Ginger , cumin, coriander, mint - in fa t you can make a herbal tea out of the above ingredients and have it twice daily 2. Exercise for 30 minutes daily- this is a must and the best solution for all digestive issues. 3. sleep - avoid sleeping during g the day time. This reduces your digestive power. Try to catch a good 7hrs sleep at night

Role of Digestive Fire or Agni in Ayurveda

BAMS
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Role of Digestive Fire or Agni in Ayurveda

Ayurveda talks of five elements in our body. To be healthy, these five elements must be well balanced. These five elements are earth, fire, water, air and ether. Each of these elements have their own characteristics and are responsible for different bodily functions.

While the earth elements represent stability and look after parts of our body, such as the bones, teeth, cells and tissue; the fire elements represent transformation of energy and are responsible for the functioning of the digestive system, nervous reactions and thought processes.

The air elements characterize change and are largely responsible for the circulatory system and temperature regulation. Similarly, air and ether have their own characteristics and responsibilities.

The fire element is also known as agni. There are 13 types of agni in the body. The digestive agni is seated in the lower part of the stomach and small intestine and is made up of various acids and enzymes.  This agni is responsible for determining each person’s dietary needs, the absorption of nutrients and burning of waste materials. Thus, a strong agni enables us to digest our food well while a weak agni leads to problems like indigestion and the creation of toxins. According to Ayurveda, the buildup of these toxins is responsible for most diseases.  At the same time, an overactive agni can also be detrimental to your health. In such cases, instead of absorbing nutrients, the digestive system produces excessive heat that burns them.

A weak agni is most likely to be caused by a number of reasons. Some of these factors are such that you might not ever think twice about such as:

  1. Eating the same type of food repetitively

  2. Eating food out of sync with your constitution

  3. Overeating

  4. Eating tasteless food

  5. Irregular meal timing

  6. Drinking too much water with your meals

  7. Not eating when hungry

  8. Not maintaining a regular sleep schedule and

  9. Absence of exercise

Changing the above habits can immediately improve your agni and in turn your digestive system and overall health. Apart from this there are also a few ayurvedic ways to improve your agni. These are:

  1. Adding pungent spices like cumin and chilli to meals

  2. Drinking ginger tea

  3. Eating more small meals at frequent intervals rather than a few large meals.

  4. Eating pitta pacifying food such as ripe, juicy fruits, rice and butter.

  5. Include herbs that enhance the functioning of agni, such as black pepper, cinnamon, aloe vera and fennel seeds in your diet. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.
