Ayurvedic Treatment For Cecal Volvulus


Our intestine is one of the longest organs present in the digestive system of the human body. When stretched out the full length of the intestine is almost 20 feet long. The intestine is small during the development of the fetus in the womb; it is a small and straight tube present between the rectum as well as the stomach. The tube develops in separate organs and the intestine is moved in the umbilical cord which helps in supplying nutrition to the embryo. Towards the end of the first trimester of pregnancy, the intestine is moved towards the abdomen from the umbilical cord. If it is not turned properly then it causes malrotation of the intestine and one of these is Cecal volvulus. We are going to discuss this topic more in detail through this article along with its herbal treatment.

It is seen when the cecum present between the colon and small bowel, is detached from the abdominal wall and twisting itself. It is different from the sigmoid and gastric volvulus. Sometimes it leads to painful as well as uncomfortable symptoms which are mistakenly linked to stomach issues.
