Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the common gastrointestinal functional disorders that affects millions of people worldwide. IBS is characterised by a complex group of symptoms including abdominal pain or bloating, diarrhoea and constipation, which can affect the quality of life of an individual.

Grahani, according to Ayurvedic classics, is caused by the imbalance of Agni or digestive fire, which leads to the imbalance in the digestion metabolism. Grahani can be effectively treated through the combination of dietary and life style modifications along with Ayurvedic medicines and therapies. The treatment aims nothing but to balance the digestive fire as well as to remove toxins from the body in order to restore proper digestion as well as overall health. Takra basti is known to have a very good efficacy in the management of Grahani roga. A successfully treated Grahani case using Takra basti and Shamana oushadhi’s will be discussed in this article.
