Causes & Nature Cure of Diarrhoea The tendency of frequent loose motions is termed as Diarrhoea. Sometimes motions are accompanied with pain. Swelling and wounds appear in large intestine due to which blood or mucus comes out with stool and twisting pain occurs in stomach. It`s main symptoms are following :
Frequent loose motions without any trouble
Weakness and dryness in body
Bubbling sounds in abdomen
Distaste in meals
Causes: Due to continuous use of heavy, oily and spicy food for a long duration and use of stale, polluted and adulterated substances, it`s digestion does not take place properly and it putrefies after reaching the intestines. Intestine fills up with stool due to non-cleansing of bowels and contaminates the Dhatus also. Sometimes, subdual of the urge of evacuation or consumption of alcohol or change of atmosphere also produces Diarrhoea.
Eating of cold food substances just after walking in sunshine and too much consumption of oily foods also causes Diarrhoea.
Treatment: In cases of Diarrhoea Co-operation and support must be given to Nature`s effort for eliminating the faecal matter and toxic substances accumulated in the intestines rather than trying to stop the process.
The accumulated faecal matter in intestine is cleansed by taking enema of warm water mixed with lemon juice for two to three days. After this. Hip bath of cold water alongwith Wet abdomen pack should be taken. Mud pack over abdomen should be used several times in Diarrhoea. This treatment gives quick relief.
When Diarrhoea starts if only butter-milk is taken after two to three days of fast, it. gives quick relief. After this, use of Dalia, Khichadi, Orange and Mousami etc. should be continued. It believes that continuous Indigestion is the cause of Diarrhoea and fasting is the best remedy for Indigestion.
Very frequent loose motions are likely to develop dehydration in the body. In such a condition, a solution of Honey and lemon juice or table salt and sugar should be taken after short intervals. The continuous application of Cold pack over abdomen or Cold Hip bath or Cold abdominal pack of prolonged duration controls the situation effectively. The patients of Diarrhoea should avoid hard physical and mental work and tense situations.
The four naval correcting asanas may also be practised for the prevention of recurrent loose motions due to the displacement of naval towards lower side. Practice of Kunjala in morning is also helpful in bringing the naval in its proper place. After this Udara Shakti Vikasaka exercises of Yogic Sukshma Vyayama and Tadasana, Katichakrasana, Padahastasana, Suptapavanmuktasana and Vajrasana may also be practised gradually. Surya bhedana Pranayama and Agnisara kriya are very beneficial to cure this disease.
