TAKE THE DIGESTION QUIZ

AYURVEDA PERSPECTIVE ON MALABSORPTION

Malabsorption is the inability to absorb nutrients from food. The problem may be general, or specific to a certain nutrient. Some common types include fat, carbohydrate, protein, fructose, bile, iron, vitamin A, D, B12 or vitamin K malabsorption.

Malabsorption may be caused by many different diseases affecting the digestive tract.

Main Sites of Absorption
StomachThe stomach absorbs water, some simple sugars and alcohol.
Small IntestineMost nutrients are absorbed through the "villi" of the small intestine. Iron absorption occurs predominantly in the duodenum and upper jejunum by a process that remains a mystery despite intensive investigation. The terminal ileum of the small intestine absorbs bile and vitamin B12.
ColonThe colon absorbs water, sodium and some fat soluble vitamins.

Inflammatory Malabsorption

Irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract can directly damage or impair villi function. Food allergies, parasites, fermentation, constipation, alcohol, coffee, or chilis can irritate the intestines. Inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's can impair absorption as well. Parasites and bacteria may steal nutrients before they are absorbed.

Short Bowel Transit Time

Chronic diarrhea or quick bowel transit time may cause elimination of nutrients before they are absorbed. When stools are soft, there is a direct loss of electrolytes and water.

Pancreatic Insufficiency / Lack of Enzymes

The villi cannot absorb food that is incompletely digested. Thus, malabsorption may occur when enzymes and gastric juices are deficient.

Remedies

It is essential to figure out what type of malabsorption you have before treating it. Western medicine offers various tests to determine which nutrients may be lacking in your system. Ayurvedic nutrition uses the 6 tastes, the five elements, as well as observable signs and symptoms to determine nutritional deficiencies.

In Ayurveda, you can improve your digestion, absorption, and assimilation by eating a diet that balances the doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and the gunas (hot, cold, etc). Here are some general guidelines:

  • Rebuilding fluids is essential for good digestion. A simple glass of warm water 1/2hr before meals can improve digestion by 25%. Licorice root and other anti-diuretics can help retain electrolytes. Foods that rebuild fluids may be helpful - such as grapes.
  • Short term use of Vitamin, mineral, and electrolyte supplements may be required while troubleshooting the cause of your malabsorption. Balanced blood chemistry improves overall body function and may improve absorption as well.
  • Eat easy to digest, nutritive foods like rice, oatmeal, ghee, & sweet potatoes. Easy to digest foods can nourish your body with minimal effort. Eat at regular meal times. Relax during and after meals. Vata pacifying kitchari is nourishing but also cleanses the intestines. A light, yet nourishing diet can restimulate appetite. Belly breathing can help rebuild digestive strength.
  • Spicy digestives and circulatory stimulants can warm up a cold digestive tract. Examples include black pepper, ginger, and hing. These should not be used in the presence of inflammation and irritation. In that case, fennel, cardamom, turmeric, and fresh ginger are preferred. Spices generally improve carbohydrate digestion and can break up thick mucus in the gi tract.
  • Astringent herbs and spices can help bind stool in case of chronic diarrhea, giving your body more time to absorb nutrients. Examples include nutmeg and fresh, home-made buttermilk.
  • Soothing anti-inflammatories like pomegranate, or herbs like shatavari can reduce inflammation. Amalaki is Ayurveda's herb of choice for restoring the lining of the digestive tract.
  • Cholagogues, including foods with sour or bitter taste, can improve fat digestion by increasing bile production and release. Examples include lemon, kale, and herbs like bhumyamalaki. Use caution, bitter and sour taste can also increase bowel motility.
  • Antimicrobials and anthelminthics can kill parasites and worms, as well as reduce bacterial overgrowth in the intestine. Examples include cloves, turmeric, goldenseal, neem, and kutki.
Follow these Guidelines for Healthy Digestion. For more home remedies, see Healing Malabsorption with Ayurveda.

HOW TO ADDRESS ISSUES IN STAGE OF DISEASE #1

MALABSORPTION IS IN STAGE OF DISEASE #1 - AFFECTING DIGESTION

If you have symptoms in this category, your body is sending you a warning sign. Since digestion is so metabolically intensive and sensitive to stress and emotions, the earliest warning signs of imbalance usually appear in the digestive tract first. You may have gas and bloating, for example, or acid reflux. Ayurveda recommends paying careful, close attention to warning signs. They indicate that an imbalance is starting to accumulate. Correct these warning signs before they accumulate further and weaken your body's resistance. This is usually accomplished by removing diet and lifestyle habits that aggravate your imbalanced doshas and biocharacteristics.

AVOID DIETS, LIFESTYLES & HERBS THAT AGGRAVATE THESE EFFECTS

According to Ayurveda, one or more of the following doshas and biocharacteristics may aggravate 'Malabsorption'. If you have an excess of one of these doshas or biocharacteristics below, Ayurveda recommends reducing foods and lifestyle habits that aggravate them. Click on the biocharacteristic to learn what foods and lifestyle habits should be reduced.

Symptoms Tell A Story

The first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances. Symptoms show you where your body is weakened. Ultimately, all disease has a root in tissues too weak to defend itself. Ayurveda describes these patterns of weakness using doshas & biocharacteristics. If you notice a biocharacteristic or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKS

ARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?

WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?

Ayurveda strengthens the body while opposing disorders. It takes a holistic, systemic approach that looks at the whole body. Ayurveda shows how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using diet, lifestyle adjustments, and herbs. It shows a person how to optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing.

HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?

Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of biocharaceristics (gunas). For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.

On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalanced biocharacteristics. By eating an optimal diet that balances your biocharacteristics, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
