5 Ayurvedic herbs useful in IBS

IBS can be treated by following a healthy lifestyle and having a proper diet. It is a long-term disease where healthy eating, regular exercise and planning daily routine are significant areas to work on. There are some herbs that can be helpful in its treatment.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or spastic colon is a common disorder that causes abdominal pain and largely affects your large intestine. The common causes of IBS are contractions in the intestine muscles, changes in microbes, stress, and abnormal nerves in the digestive system. No medical test is available for IBS. Doctors usually detect IBS depending on family history and long-term symptoms like abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloating, vomiting, and weight loss. IBS is a long-term disease that can be well managed by taking a proper diet and following a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy, regular exercise, and planning a daily routine are significant areas for an IBS patient. 

Ayurvedic herbs useful in IBS

Isabgol - Take ½ teaspoon of Isabgol husk and mix it with curd. Have it every day after a meal. Isabgol has water-absorbing properties which facilitate stool and easy passage.  Isabgol is cold in nature so it creates a thinner wall on the inner side of the stomach that reduces hyperacidity.

Pudina - Take ½ teaspoon of pudina mix it with buttermilk (chhaas) and have it once a day. You can also add pudina to your daily diet food. The healing properties of mint help smoothen the muscles around the intestine.

Aloe Vera - Aloe vera has antibacterial properties. Drinking aloe vera juice helps in treating diarrhea and constipation. It also gives you relief from abdominal pain of IBS.

Fennel seeds - It’s a common herb and is easily available in your kitchen. It has soothing properties and provides relief from digestion problems. Drinking water with fennel seeds soaked in it proves helpful for IBS patients.

Brahmi - Take ½ teaspoon of Brahmi powder before and after a meal. It is the most recommended herb by Ayurveda and is helpful in treating various health conditions. Brahmi provides relief especially in the case of diarrhea.
