    Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES) - Ayurvedic Treatment

    Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a non-IgE-mediated gastrointestinal food allergy that presents with delayed vomiting after ingestion primarily in infants. It is referred to as a delayed food allergy and is a severe condition causing vomiting and diarrhea. In some cases, symptoms can progress to dehydration and shock brought on by low blood pressure and poor blood circulation. Much like other food allergies, it is triggered by ingesting a particular food. Although any food can be a trigger, the most common culprits include milk, soy, and grains.

     

    In Ayurveda, Satmya (suitable or accustomed)  is one of the important considerable issues during the application of medicine or diet. One of the notable causes behind different preparations of medicines and diet is Satmya. Diet or medicine which is not Satmya to a person should not be given reason being the substance that is not Satmya to one’s body may cause Asatmyaja-rogas. Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome can be included under Asatmyaja-rogas, one which is not conducive to the prakrithi (constitution) and agni (digestive fire) of a particular person. Dr. Gupta’s IAFA® provides safe and effective remedies for Ayurvedic treatment of food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES).

    Ayurvedic Treatment of Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES)

    Asatmyaja rogas are the result of weak digestive fire or agni. Digestive fire of body (agni) becomes weak due to amavisha (metabolic toxin) formation in the body and causes the imbalance of doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) in the body.

     

    Ayurvedic treatment of food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome involves Shamana chikitsa (internal medicines), Shodana chikitsa (Panchakarma therapy), lifestyle modifications, and a very strict diet regime. In more severe cases Panchakarma therapy plays a vital role as it quickly detoxifies & rejuvenates the digestive system.
