What is Malabsorption Ayurvedic treatment


The term Malabsorption syndrome signifies a number of conditions where the nutrients from food do not get absorbed properly in the intestine. Many medical conditions, some infections and surgical procedures are the cause of malabsorption. Malabsorption often causes watery stools (diarrhea), lead to weight loss, and cause foul-smelling stools.1

As per ayurvedic literature, Grahni (duodenum and the upper part of small intestine) is the site of Agni (Digestive fire) which helps in the proper digestion of ingested food.2

Grahani is the term given to the base of body’s digestive fire (agni).3 Due to many factors causing a weakened digestive fire (agni), the ingested food material does not get absorbed properly and results in irregular bowel movement, food aversion, vomiting, dizziness, acidic belches, etc.3

Any person, who does not adapt to practices of food (basis time, place, and season), and suppresses natural urges will be at risk of weakened digestive power. Stress levels affect the food habits and lifestyle. Ayurvedic treatment mainly focuses on increasing Agni (digestion power) that promotes the healthy functioning of the gut.4
