Natural Remedies for Bleeding In the Digestive Tract
Are you bleeding while passing stools? Do you find yourself bleeding from the rectum during the day? Most often such bleeding is a symptom of a health issue and not the disease itself. One of the common causes of such bleeding could be piles or hemorrhoids or an ulcer on the stomach lining, which can be treated and controlled. The esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum and the anus together make up the digestive tract. Bleeding in one or more organs is also known as bleeding in the digestive tract or melena
There are many treatment options such as Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, the causes of such bleeding could be
- Excess intake of warm (Ushna), sour (Amla), salty (lavana), and spicy (vidahi) food.
