“A PROSPECTIVE RANDOMIZED CLINICAL TRIAL FOR THE EFFECT OF DIET AND YOGA IN VIBANDHA (CONSTIPATION).”
*Vd. Poonam Vikram Dound, Vd. Shital O. Chavan and Vd.Yeshwant R. Patil
Sharir is made up of dosha, dhatu and mala which should be in Sama sthiti. Vida or Purisha is the mala i.e. waste product of Anna (food). Mala is the end product of the process of digestion. The mala should be excreted from the body at right time. If it doesn’t excrete by the body at right time it causes Sanga of Purishvaha srotas i.e. called as Vibandha (Constipation). Vibandha (Constipation) is a symptom not a disease. The main causes of Vibandha (Constipation) are wrong dietary-lifestyle habits, mental stress. To counter these causative factors lifestyle modification with the help of correct diet and Yoga is very useful. So the subjects presenting the symptoms like Adhman, difficulty in defaecation and hardness of stool are advised for lifestyle modification with fiber rich diet and daily Yoga practices. Follow up is taken after 15 days. And hence it is found that Vibandha can be well treated with the adoption of diet and Yoga in routine.
