Ayurvedic Aspect of Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis
Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis (EPS) is an uncommon cause of intestinal obstruction that is characterised by fibrotic encapsulation of the colon as a result of a progressive intra-abdominal inflammatory process. The main symptoms of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis include inflammatory parameters, gastrointestinal obstruction, and macroscopic abnormalities. By the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis as a syndrome characterised by symptoms of intestinal obstruction caused by diffusely thickened peritoneum adhesions.

AYURVEDIC ASPECT OF ENCAPSULATING PERITONEAL SCLEROSIS
According to Ayurveda, encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis is associated with anna vaha sroto dushti, which aggravates vata dosha. Abdominal pain, intestinal blockage, and constipation come from vata aggravation. Some ayurvedic remedies, such as snehana, swedana, and shodhana, can help balance vata. Muscle fat, ghee, oil, and bone marrow are administered to the patient in snehana to balance the doshas. Following snehan, patients are offered fomentation therapies such as nadi sweda, prastara sveda, and sankara sveda, among others. The herbs varun, bhumiamla, gokshur, punarnava, and triphala are beneficial in the treatment of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis.
