Ayurvedic Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) - Real Testimonial | Patient's Feedback

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Ok. You tell what is your name?

INTERVIEWEE: Shailesh Tiwari.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: From where you have come?

INTERVIEWEE: I belong to Mumbai only! I have come from Bhandup, Mumbai.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: So today I am in Mumbai, I was seeing patients and Shailesh ji have come to see me and he lives here in Bhandup. He was suffering from some diseases of Gastrointestinal tract, which was very chronic and now it's cured. So let's ask him what his problem was. So please you tell me what was the problem and since when you were suffering from the problem.

INTERVIEWEE: I was suffering from IBS and constipation from last 5-6 years.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Ok.. IBS from last 6-7 years.

INTERVIEWEE: I came to you in February 2017. I completed the course of 3 months medicine. 2nd time I came to you in the month of May then I again did another course of 3 months i.e. total 6 months. After 6 months of taking medicines, I am feeling so relaxed that I feel that I never suffered from any disease.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: IBS basically causes many problems among people. What were the symptoms you were facing?

INTERVIEWEE: It was Gastric.. Severe gastric, acidity, severe acidity, hyper acidity.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: ok. You were feeling severe acidity and also Burning sensation.

INTERVIEWEE: Yes Burning too. I could not pass the stool.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: You felt like going to toilet again and again??

INTERVIEWEE: No..No.. It won't come. I was constipated. Whatever I would eat, I would feel nausea and feel like throwing up.. This was my condition.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Then which medicine you took and you felt that this is a good medicine?

INTERVIEWEE: The Sanjivani vati (the one which you have given me in the prescription), Sanjivani Vati, Kutazghan Vati, Amalaki Rasayana, Digestion Support, all these in the prescription for 6 months… Yes, Pitta balance also. So I took them all for 6 months.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Basically vata and Pitta imbalance is the cause of IBS. This causes formation of air, gas in the abdomen. Sometimes the patient feels constipation and sometimes the urge to go to toilet again and again. Whatever he eats, he feels like going to toilet, or feels that he has not completely evacuated yet. His Agni (Digestive Fire) gets disturbed. There is fire imbalance. To restore the balance of pitta, We give Pitta Balance which contains Praval, jahar mohra, mukta, Akik, giloy. The combination of all of these is Pitta Balance Capsule. Other than this is Sanjivani vati, which improves the digestive fire and prevents formation of Ama i.e. toxis. What happens in this is that whatever a person eats or heavy food, it doesn't get digested and remains as uncooked juice or Aamras (endotoxins). To digest this AamRas, we give Ayurvedic herbal formula Sanjivani Vati. It contains 8-10 herbs. We give Sanjivani Vati, Kutazghan Vati, Pitta Balance. Kutazghan vati stops the urge to go to toilet again and again and also good for Ama (toxins) digestion. The Digestion Support also helps in improving the Digestive fire and prevents formation of undigested juice from food. Usually People suffering from IBS also get depressed and they are told that you will need Psychiatric treatment.

INTERVIEWEE: Yes, I was also referred for Psychiatric treatment but I didn't go.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Then they start depression medicines and also sleeping pills. Don't take those sleeping pills and don't go into depression. It's possible to treat it in Ayurveda. If you keep taking depression medicines, then what will happen your disease will continue for years. In 3 to 6 months, like he has got the treatment done, the treatment is possible. What changes I asked you to make in Diet.

INTERVIEWEE: Dairy products completely stop. Milk and milk products. I just consumed Dal, Roti, Sabji (pulses, Indian bread, vegetables, rice, Salad) whatever I maintained all these.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Any packaged food for example biscuit, chips, salty snacks should all be avoided. Anything which comes out of the packets should not be eaten. Milk and milk products should be avoided. Cow gives milk but never consumes milk. Cow only gives milk and doesn't drink. All the animals-the female part of the species of the mammals gives milk, which is only for the baby of the mother. What we do, we bring cow's milk. In Rajasthan state, you also get camel's milk. Similarly in all different parts of the world, people drink milk of various animals. Some drink milk of goat and some of sheep. The characteristics of all types of milk are mentioned in Ayurveda but, they're good for the sick. But, daily use of milk on a regular basis is not good. Some are lactose intolerant where as some have casein intolerance and some are intolerant to other proteins in the milk which give rise to various autoimmune disorders. Moreover, since, cow is a female she is given injections to increase the quantity of milk and they are the same injections which are given to a girl to increase the quantity of milk and we consume that milk and start developing traits of a girl. By the effect of this milk males turn in to a girl and male impotency increases and the count of male hormones decreases. People say drinking milk will give you strength and provides calcium. Instead of drinking milk, if you eat the grass (greens) the cow eats. The cow might be getting her calcium from somewhere. Similarly, if you eat a little coriander leaves, mint leaves. Eating natural foods will curb all the problems like gastric, acidity, burning effect and IBS. With this, all I want to say to the viewers is that please give priority to natural food and natural lifestyle and stay away from artificial drugs and foods.

INTERVIEWEE: You treated my Kidney stones along with IBS.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: Ok, you had Kidney Stone also? What was the size of stone in mm?

INTERVIEWEE: I had 3.5 mm stones in my left kidney and 2.5mm in the right kidney. I am totally cured from kidney stone also. With IBS my kidney stones are also cured.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: That's good. Basically when there is excess calcium, by drinking milk excessive amounts of calcium gets accumulated that also turn into kidney stones and the packed foods we eat also turn into kidney stones. The stones of 3-5 mm and in Ayurveda, the stones of 1.5 cm or more can be dissolved and flushed out. 3-4 mm sized stones can be flushed out with the consumption of ample amounts of water. Even if the stone is bigger that than 1.5cm -2cm Ayurveda has such herbs which dissolve the stone and it is then, flushed out. It is really good that his kidney stone also got flushed out and IBS is also treated.

INTERVIEWEE: I am feeling relaxed that in these six months I have got my IBS and Kidney stone cured.

DR. VIKRAM CHAUHAN: That's a very good news. I wish you a healthy life and in future also, you always remain healthy.

INTERVIEWEE: Thanks a lot.
