Dysentery (Parvahika)

Dysentery is agonizing intestinal contamination that is normally brought about by microbes or parasites. Looseness of the bowels is characterized as the runs in which there is blood, discharge, and mucous, typically joined by stomach torment. It generally goes on for 3 to 7 days.

As indicated by Ayurveda, it tends to be related to the infection Pravahika which shows as Atipravahana of Purisha (rehashed crap), Atidrava Purisha Pravritti (watery stool), Udarashoola (torment midsection), Picchila, Saphena (tacky and foamy), and Raktayukta Purisha.

There are two primary types of dysentery:

The first type, amoebic diarrhea or intestinal amoebiasis, is brought about by a solitary celled, tiny parasite living in the enormous entrail.

The second type of, bacillary dysentery, is brought about by obtrusive microbes. The two types of looseness of the bowels happen for the most part in hot nations. Helpless cleanliness and sterilization increment the danger of diarrhea by spreading the parasite or microbes that reason it through food or water debased from tainted human excrement.
