Ayurvedic Ulcer Program

The Raj Ulcer Program, based on the science of Maharishi Ayurveda, provides the most comprehensive and natural approach to ulcers available today, both in terms of identifying causes and in providing treatment.

Most chronic disorders start when toxins accumulate in tissues, disrupting the delicate biochemistry of the area. The buildup of acid and aggravating chemicals in the gut is a classic example of this.

An accumulation of impurities in the stomach can also create an internal environment conducive to the overgrowth of the bacteria H. pylori, which is said to play a central role in ulcer development. Many people, however, have H. pylori without developing an ulcer. From an Ayurvedic perspective, the main cause of ulcers is a weakness in the stomach area, rather than the invading organism. 

A build-up of toxins can also obstruct the channels of circulation and elimination, preventing proper nutrition from reaching the tissues, and blocking the processes that cleanse the tissues of impurities.

Because a range of imbalances can trigger ulcers, the multifaceted approach of Ayurveda can be helpful in eliminating the underlying causes of ulcers, while enlivening the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common medical approach of giving antacids and drugs to suppress acid secretion, or antibiotics to kill H. pylori bacteria does not really address the underlying imbalances that cause ulcers. As a result the modern medical approach often cannot fully remove the disorder, and the condition becomes chronic, meaning that the condition persists over time.

According to Ayurveda, the root cause of most chronic digestive conditions is a combination of the following factors: 

  1. Toxins accumulating in tissues and blocking circulation.
  2. Poor nutrition.
  3. Poor digestion.
  4. Imbalance of the nervous system.
  5. Accumulation of physical and mental stress.
  6. Lowering of natural resistance and immunity.
  7. Disruption of natural biological rhythms.

The common medical approach of giving antacids and drugs to suppress acid secretion, or antibiotics to kill H. pylori bacteria does not really address the underlying imbalances that cause ulcers. As a result the modern medical approach often cannot fully remove the disorder, and the condition becomes chronic, meaning that the condition persists over time.

The Raj program for ulcers provides a comprehensive treatment program that removes imbalances at the basis of your chronic conditions, with no unpleasant side-effects. Your Ulcer Treatment Program works to eliminate the root causes of ulcers and to enliven the body’s natural healing mechanisms to ensure long-lasting results.

Most ulcers occur when toxins build up in tissues.  These toxins interfere with the body’s natural biological processes. In addition they block the channels of circulation, diminishing the natural cleansing processes of the body and allowing even more impurities to accumulate.

The Raj Ayurveda purification treatments at the heart of your Ulcer Treatment Program help to cleanse the body and open the channels of circulation by providing the most thorough internal cleansing programs available in Ayurveda medicine. In fact, research has shown that these treatments remove a class of toxins (fat-soluble toxins) that no other purification treatments can remove.

The nervous system controls most bodily functions, and almost every chronic condition is affected in some way when the nervous system activity becomes imbalanced. According to Ayurveda, the physiological principle at the basis of nervous system stability and activation is called Vata dosha. Because nervous system imbalance contributes to all forms of ulcers, Ayurveda considers an imbalance in Vata dosha to be a foundational cause that needs to be addressed.

In addition, the aggravation of Pitta dosha, is also involved in the development of ulcers. Pitta (the principal of heat and transformation) can gain an acidic nature due to various causative factors which aggravate can Pitta. Ayurvedic treatments for ulcers help to remove this excess of Pitta dosha and protect the stomach from becoming further damaged.

Therefore, an important component in treating ulcers is to balance and stabilize both Pitta and Vata doshas.  Ayurveda offers a wide variety of time-tested recommendations to help restore balance to the doshas and remove the symptoms caused by their aggravation. These include specific diets, herbs, cleansing programs, the Transcendental Meditation technique, Yoga positions and Yoga breathing exercises.

During your stay at The Ray you will receive a detailed understanding of which foods to favor and avoid for your condition.

For example, for some digestive conditions, the consumption of pitta-increasing foods can aggravate existing problems by increasing the acidic content in stomach fluids. Foods that are hard to digest and clogging to the physiology can create further imbalance and accumulation of toxins. At The Raj you will learn which foods are easy-to-digest, nourishing, cleanse the physiology, strengthen digestion and help balance your body’s inner intelligence.

One of the great strengths of the Ayurveda dietary approach is that it contains knowledge of how to have a light, easy-to-digest diet that still is both satisfying and nourishing. Many individuals have easily followed this diet and have improved their digestion and energy while also reducing their symptoms. This diet helps the body create micronutrients that can be assimilated into the tissues, rebuilding strength and balance. 

Our ability to properly digest food is as important as what specific food we eat. Incompletely digested foods create toxins and impurities that are eventually absorbed, travel throughout the physiology, localize in tissues and disrupt their functioning. This process plays a major role in a wide variety of chronic conditions, including ulcers.

At The Raj, our health experts will provide recommendations for strengthening digestion including information in the following areas:

  • Proper use of spices and cooking oils
  • Herbal preparations for improving digestion
  • Important differences between breakfast, lunch and dinner foods
  • A simple system to determine a balanced diet
  • Digestion-enhancing foods to favor
  • Digestion-depressing foods to reduce
  • Eating behavior for maximum digestion
  • Proper food combinations to avoid indigestion
  • Non-dietary regiments to improve digestive strength including exercise, specific Yoga positions and breathing techniques
