Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment of Transient Intussusception


Transient intussusception is a rare and serious condition that causes abdominal pain in patients, due to intestinal obstruction. The condition usually affects young children aged between 6 months and 3 years, but it can also affect adults. The occurrence of Transient intussusception is generally linked to inflammatory bowel disease, endocrinological disorders, and cystic fibrosis. Transient intussusception requires timely treatment because it can lead to potentially life-threatening complications. Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers excellent herbal products for managing the condition in a safe and natural manner.

Transient intussusception: Overview

Transient intussusception is a serious condition associated with ‘intestinal malrotation.’ The condition is marked by a kind of bowel obstruction, which typically affects children aged below 3 years. The condition is usually a result of abnormal formation of the intestines at birth. The condition can also sometimes affect adults because of altered intestinal motility, due to which food or fluid cannot pass through the intestines properly.

Transient intussusception results in intestinal blockage in affected patients because of the ‘telescoping’ of one section of the intestine inside an adjacent section. The intestinal blockage in patients suffering from the condition can occur anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. However, the blockage generally occurs at the intersection (joining point) of the small and large intestines.

The intestinal blockage in Transient intussusception can lead to swelling and inflammation of the lining of the intestines and also damage the intestines. In addition, the blockage can also cause a perforation (tear) in the intestinal wall, infection, and death of bowel tissue. Transient intussusception can affect both boys and girls, but the risk of developing the condition is comparatively higher in boys than girls.

Transient intussusception


The exact cause of Transient intussusception is not clearly known. Nonetheless, it is believed that the condition occurs in children due to an abnormal growth – a tumor or a polyp – in the intestines at birth. Children with a family history of Transient intussusception are also at a high risk of developing the condition.

In adults, Transient intussusception usually occurs because of some other medical condition or surgical procedure, such as a tumor, adhesions (scar-like tissue in the intestines), Crohn’s disease or other disorders which cause inflammation, weight-loss surgery, or a surgery that involves the intestinal tract.


The most common symptoms of Transient intussusception, especially in children, are:

  • Severe, crampy, intermittent abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Stools with mucus or blood
  • Weak/rapid pulse
  • Anxiety
  • Agitated behavior
  • Abnormal (excessively slow or extremely fast) breathing.


The treatment of Transient intussusception in children is aimed at pushing the ‘telescoped’ intestines back into their normal position using a radiologic procedure. In adults, the treatment of the condition involves a surgical procedure to correct the intestinal malrotation or the altered intestinal motility.

Transient intussusception can also be managed naturally with the help of Ayurvedic herbal products which can effectively support intestinal health and strengthen the digestive system. Planet Ayurveda offers the following herbal products for natural management of Transient intussusception:
