Coeliac disease is a long-term health problem that happens when you eat foods with gluten, like wheat, barley, and rye. When people with coeliac disease eat gluten, their body’s defences system acts strangely, hurting their small intestine. This can lead to problems like tummy pain, tiredness, and not getting enough nutrients from food. The main treatment for coeliac disease is to always eat food that doesn’t have gluten, which can make the symptoms go away and let the intestine heal. It’s important to find coeliac disease early and stick to a gluten-free diet to stay healthy.

Causes of Coeliac disease

The main cause of coeliac disease is genetics. It tends to run in families, so if someone in your family has it, you’re at a higher risk. When you have the genes that make you prone to coeliac disease and you eat gluten-containing foods, your immune system reacts abnormally, damaging your small intestine over time. Certain factors, like viral infections or stressful events, might trigger the disease in people who have the genetic predisposition. However, the primary cause remains the combination of genetic susceptibility and gluten consumption.

Children with coeliac disease may have more symptoms that talk about digestive issues than adults. These signs may include:

  • Chronic diarrhoea

Ayurvedic approach in managing Coeliac disease

In Ayurveda, Coeliac disease is seen as a disturbance in the digestive system. According to Ayurvedic point of view “coeliac disease” is known as “Grahani” that causes imbalance in the Agni. Mainly Pitta, Kapha, & Vata Dosha are involved in this disease. Ayurvedic practitioners focus on restoring balance by recommending a gluten-free diet and using herbal remedies to soothe the digestive tract and reduce inflammation. Additionally, Ayurveda emphasizes individualized treatment plans based on a person’s unique constitution (Dosha) to address underlying imbalances.

Lifestyle modifications and stress management techniques are often incorporated to promote overall well-being and digestive health. It’s important to consult with an Ayurvedic practitioner for personalized guidance and treatment.
