Hello doctor,

I am a 39 year old male. I have ulcerative colitis since last year. I have lost 13 kg in the last 18 months. I was previously 73 kg. I now weigh 60 kg. I have frequent motions, even up to six times a day. But, the consistency of the stools is alright. I also have stomach pain sometimes. I have been taking the following Ayurvedic medicines along with my allopathy medicine of Mesacol 2.4 mg since the last six months. Vivaldi Gulika, once a day, Guloochyadi kashayam 10 ml in the morning, Kalasaakadi kashayam 10 ml morning, Panchathikthakam grutham, and Manasamitravatakam tablets, two tablets before sleep.

However, I do not have complete relief. I still have to go to the toilet five times a day. I pass motion twice in the morning before breakfast as my stomach does not get cleaned with once, and then once in the evening, once before going to bed and once in the middle of the night. Kindly advice some medication and diet for reducing the frequency of the motions and gaining weight.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease and a very notorious disease. Its progress depends on your diet pattern and life style.
  • You are taking good medicines but, I would suggest some changes. You should stop the allopathic medicine gradually. Take the following medicines continuously for three months regularly along with Yoga and exercise and a restricted diet plan:
  1. Kutajaghana Vati two tablets twice daily after food.
  2. Arogyavardhini Vati one tablet twice daily after food.
  3. Dadimastaka Churna 3 g twice daily after food.
  4. Bilvavaleha one teaspoon twice a day half an hour before food.
  5. Pipallyasava 15 ml twice a day after meals with an equal amount of water.
  • Avoid milk, smoking, drinking, spicy, fried and junk foods.
  • Drink plenty of water. Eat fibrous food. Include lots of fruits and green leafy vegetables.
  • Buttermilk or curd with jeeraka is good for you.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Follow up after 15 days.

If you follow all these suggestions it will be cured easily.
