Irritable bowel syndrome, or grahani roga, is a common disorder that affects our digestive system. Grahani roga is a condition that you will need to manage on a long-term basis as the signs and symptoms of illness vary but usually persist for a long time. The most common symptoms include abdominal pain, cramping or bloating, irregular bowel movement, and changes in their appearance.
In Ayurveda, the body balances different types of energies, or doshas namely, vata, pitta and kapha. If the three doshas are imbalanced, you may experience a variety of illnesses. Our body uses its agni (or digestive fire) to convert the food into energy and nutrition. Unstable agni leads to improper digestion that causes your body to develop ama, or toxins, resulting in the symptoms of grahani roga.
