Ulcerative Colitis



Ulcerative Colitis


Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease with a relapsing nature, which causes inflammation and ulceration of inner lining of the colon and rectum. The inflammation usually begins in the rectum and spreads upward to the entire colon. It is a very challenging disease, can occur at any age but its onset is most common among people between ages of 20 to 40 years of age. Now a days its seen in kids as well.

Bleeding in stool with increased bowel frequency are the main features of this disease. Weakness is more common due to loss of water and blood in stool.


According to Ayurveda, Ulcerative colitis is a disease of Purishavaha srotas. It can corelate with “Pittaja Grahani“ in Ayurveda.

Vata dosha in large intestine also aggravates and affects the pitta and kapha dosha that causes inflammation, mucous accumulation and edema .


Aggravated Pitta, when reaches extreme it leads to severe inflammation, ulceration and rectal bleeding . This is the active phase or flare-up of UC - This can compare to Pittaja Grahani with raktatisara.
