What is Fistula?
An obstetric fistula is a hole between the vagina and rectum or bladder that is caused by prolonged obstructed labor, leaving a woman incontinent of urine or feces or both.
For women with obstructed labor, labor that goes unattended, the labor can last up to six or seven days. The labor produces contractions that push the baby’s head against the mother’s pelvic bone. The soft tissues between the baby’s head and the pelvic bone are compressed and do not receive adequate blood flow. The lack of blood flow causes this delicate tissue to die, and where it dies holes are created between the laboring mother’s bladder and vagina and/or between the rectum and vagina. This is what produces incontinence in a fistula patient.
Is surgery the only option?
Since decades, several over-the-counter medicines have been claiming to subdue as well as cure this painful disease. However, they all have chemicals and are mostly just painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. In fact, in some extreme cases, the doctor advises surgery.
Ayurveda can help cure Fistula
Instead of opting for such harmful solutions, we direct you to the mystical science of Ayurveda that efficaciously heals the fistula without any chemicals or surgery. In Ayurveda, anal fistula is also known as “Bhagandara”. Ayurveda describes it as a situation that arises when there is an imbalance in the three body energies that are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
Types of Fistula
Fistula is categorized under the following six types: Sataponaka - which has a predominant vitiation of Vata Dosha. Parisravi a vitiation of the Kapha body energy. Ustragreeva - a vitiation of the Pitta body energy. Sambukavarta - a vitiation of all the three doshas (body energies). Unmargi - a fistula that may develop due to external factors.
Ayurveda offers a wholesome treatment to fistulas
Ayurveda offers a wholesome treatment to fistulas. The cure not just heals the sore but also attacks the underlying causes, thereby, restricting the re-occurrence of the disease.
Another Ayurvedic treatment for fistula is known as Enema. In this treatment, hot bath is given to the patient suffering from it. Lower body parts are involved in this therapy. A few other types of fomentation is also recommended. The patient needs to be constantly checked for any signs of suffering for diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, TB or any other.
Agnikarma is another treatment for fistula in Ayurveda. This involves use of hot iron or caustic agent for destroying the affected tissues.
The main reason for rise of this disease these days is the unhealthy lifestyle which people have started to lead. It is expected that with Ayurvedic remedies for fistula treatment becoming popular, the lifestyle recommended by the holistic system of medicine will also gain ground.
