Irregular food habits and timings, and unhealthy diets can cause lasting damage to the digestive system. This is another problem that has grown common with changed lifestyles.
Ayurveda seeks to cure such digestive disorders or gastro-intestinal problems by treating the source of the problems. The Panchakarma therapy constitutes both ingested medication and external treatment, which if followed according to prescription regulates, and normalises bodily processes. As Ayurvedic medicines are composed of natural resources (plants and herbs), there is minimal risk of harmful side-effects.
In addition, Maitra practitioners also prescribe various home-remedies that form a part of ancient Ayurvedic healing techniques, and have evolved as extremely effective means of combating gastro-intestinal disorders.
