Triphala is an age old Ayurvedic supplement with the extracts of three medicinal herbs which have wonderful properties in treating and curing many medical conditions. TRIPHALA gets its name from its contents the three fruits, namely, Indian Gooseberry, Belliric Myrobalan and Indian Gallnut. Known as the Mother of All Herbs, TRIPHALA has a balancing and rejuvenating effect on the three Doshas that govern human life. This makes TRIPHALA a Tridoshic rasayana (one that gives strength, immunity and vitality) combining detoxifying properties as well as nutrition. It is anti inflammatory, anti bacterial, anti viral, anti allergic and anti cancerous. TRIPHALA is used for a variety of ailments including infections and chronic conditions like diabetes.
Piles, hemorrhoids and anal fissure : The veins in the lower rectum may get inflamed due to strained bowel movements or other causes. Pain, swelling, itching bleeding and discomfort are common in this condition. Fibre rich foods, luke warm water and TRIPHALA churna help to reduce the flare up.
Constipation : Constipation is a highly serious condition if left untreated for a long period of time. It can lead to the accumulation of toxins which can affect overall health and wellbeing. Ayurveda sees constipation as a reason for many other conditions like dandruff, acne, boils, skin disorders, hair fall etc. When you are constipated, toxins or waste remain in the intestines and get absorbed in to the bloodstream. They, then, enter the other systems and create havoc by lowering immunity and promoting ill health.
Treatment Options Over the counter laxatives and lifestyle changes are the two advices your Primary Health Care Giver would give you. These medicines when used for a long term drain the fluids from the body, damage the muscular function of the bowel and cause dependency.
Ayurvedic Treatment Ayurveda offers effective treatment for constipation and digestive aliments without any of these side effects. Ayurvedic medicines do not cause dependency.
