Abstract

CROHN’S DISEASE: A REVIEW BASED ON AYURVEDA AND MODERN PERSPECTIVE

Dr. Gauri P. Patange*, Dr. Seema R. Giri and Jagnnath S. Kharat

ABSTRACT

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of GI tract, most commonly involving the ileum or colon. However, the disease may affect any part of the GIT.[1] It is currently estimated that, in united state about 1- 1.3 million people suffer from IBD. The cause of IBD is unknown, and until we understand more, prevention or a cure will not be possible. Now, CD is considered a result of multifactorial interplay between genetic, immune related, environmental, and infectious triggers that coalesce into evolution of clinical disease. According to Ayurveda, Crohn’s can be compared to Grahani and Atisara. Grahani in Ayurveda is actually an anatomical term to describe small intestine (especially Ileum and Jejunum). Any vitiation or inflammation to this particular part by imbalanced doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) can cause a wide variety of symptoms similar to that of C.D., anywhere across the digestive system. This article is an attempt to find out better treatment modalities from an ayurvedic perspective which are mentioned in classical texts which may help in increase the remission period of Crohn’s patients.

Keywords: Crohns disease, Grahani, Atisara, vata, pitta, kapha.
