Anywhere from Gum To Bum
Crohn’s is an inflammatory chronic condition that can affect the entire GI tract starting from the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, and anus or even any part of it. The symptoms vary from person to person, depending on what part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is affected. According to Ayurvedic system of medicine, we would classify this as a part of auto immune disease acquired through Genes, food, lifestyle or environment trying to continuously destroy the digestive fire in a human being and the inflammation is body’s way of responding to it. We can say there is Ama in kapha and Pitha doshas in the GI system.
