    1. 1. DIGESTIVE DISORDERS YOGA FOR ACID PEPTIC DISEASE IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
    2. 2. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>People are probably more aware of their digestive system than an of other system, not lease because of its frequent messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Hunger, thirst, appetite, gas and the frequency and nature of bowel movements are all issues affecting daily life. </li></ul><ul><li>Eating well, along with regular exercise, is one of the bedrocks of good health. </li></ul><ul><li>Plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, adequate fiber and restricted animal fats and salt are simple dietary guidelines that are essential for maintaining the well-being of all parts of the body, particularly the heart, blood vessels, bones – and the digestive system itself. </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>The digestive system consists of a long passageway, known as the alimentary canal or digestive tract and associated organs, including the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. </li></ul><ul><li>The digestive tract starts at the mouth and continues through the esophagus and intestines to the anus. </li></ul><ul><li>Along its course food is broken down and nutrients extracted, while waste materials are disposed of. </li></ul>
    4. 4. PATH OF FOOD – MOUTH TO ANUS Path of food through the human digestive system includes the following organs and structures : Mouth – pharynx – esophagus – peristalsis – mucus – sphincter muscles – cardiac sphincter – stomach – pyloric sphincter – small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileum) – ileocecal valve – large intestine or colon (cecum, appendix, ascending colon, transverse colon, sigmoid colon) – rectum – anus.
    5. 5. STOMACH The stomach is a J-shaped muscular organ that receives and mixes food with digestive juices, and propels food to the small intestine. Stomach stores 2½ pints (1.5 liters) or more of food from a meal and digests it both physically and chemically. Small intestine continues the chemical breakdown and is the main site for absorbing the resulting nutrients into the bloodstream.
    6. 6. LIVER, GALLBLADDER & PANCREAS <ul><li>The liver is the body’s largest internal organ and has a crucial role in the manufacture, processing and storage of may chemicals. </li></ul><ul><li>It produces the digestive fluid bile, which is then stored in the gallbladder. </li></ul><ul><li>The pancreas secretes vital digestive enzymes. </li></ul>
    7. 7. LIVER The reddish-brown liver, located in the upper right quadrant of the abdominal cavity, is the body’s largest internal organ. * Each lobe is separated into hepatic lobules consisting of hepatic cells radiating from a central vein. * Hepatic sinusoids separate groups of hepatic cells. * Blood from the hepatic portal vein carries blood rich in nutrients to the liver. * Kupffer cells carry on phagocytosis in the liver. * Secretions from hepatic cells are collected in bile canals that converge to become hepatic ducts and finally form the common hepatic duct.
    8. 9. LIVER FUNCTIONS Most of the liver’s tasks are concerned with metabolism. They include: breakdown of digestive products; storage of the resulting products; circulation of substances such as vitamins and minerals; construction of complex molecules – enzymes. <ul><li>Bile production - Liver cells secrete bile into small canals called bile canaliculi, which drain into bile ducts running between the lobules. These bile ducts coverage to form the common hepatic duct, which conveys bile to the gallbladder for storage. </li></ul><ul><li>Nutrient processing - Liver removes nutrients from the blood. It converts simple sugars into glycogen – a process called glycogenesis – and synthesizes amino acids. </li></ul>
    9. 10. <ul><li>Glucose regulation - The liver maintains blood glucose levels by converting fat and proteins into glucose – glucogenesis. </li></ul><ul><li>Detoxification - Harmful substances in the blood – alcohol and some other poisons, are detoxified. Waste products and unwanted amino acids are converted into urea. </li></ul><ul><li>Protein synthesis - Liver synthesizes blood-clotting proteins and proteins for the fluid part of blood (plasma). </li></ul>
    10. 11. <ul><li>Mineral and vitamin storage - Liver is reservoir of minerals such as iron, copper, fat-soluble vitamins including A, B12, D, E and K </li></ul><ul><li>Blood waste disposal - Bacteria and general foreign particles are eliminated. </li></ul><ul><li>Recycling blood cells - Old red blood cells are broken down and their constituents reused. </li></ul>
    11. 14. GALLBLADDER Bile salts emulsify fats and aid in the absorption of fatty acids, cholesterol, and certain vitamins.
    12. 15. BILE TRANSPORT <ul><li>Bile assists the breakdown of fats (lipids) in the small intestine. </li></ul><ul><li>Liver secretes up to 1 liter of bile daily. </li></ul><ul><li>Bile passes along the left and right hepatic ducts from the liver’s two lobes, then along the common hepatic and cystic duct to the gallbladder. </li></ul><ul><li>This sac holds about 50 mL of bile and concentrates it, ready for release after a meal. </li></ul><ul><li>Bile flows along the cystic duct to enter the first part of small intestine, duodenum. </li></ul><ul><li>Common bile ducts joins the pancreatic duct at the hepatopancreatic ampulla, which empties into the duodenum. </li></ul>
    13. 16. PANCREAS The pancreas has an exocrine function of producing pancreatic juice that aids digestion. It is closely associated with the small intestine. Cells that produce pancreatic juice, called pancreatic acinar cells, make up the bulk of the pancreas. Pancreatic and bile ducts join and empty into the small intestine, which is surrounded by the hepatopancreatic sphincter.
    14. 17. PANCREATIC JUICE Contains enzymes that digest carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and nucleic acids. Enzymes include pancreatic amylase, pancreatic lipase, trypsin, chymotrypsin, carboxypeptidase, and two nucleases. Protein-digesting enzymes are released in an inactive form and are activated upon reaching the small intestine.
    15. 18. SPLEEN Located in the upper left quadrant. Consists of white pulp (lymphoid tissue) and red pulp. Filters and stores blood.
    16. 19. SMALL INTESTINE The lengthy small intestine receives secretions from the pancreas and liver, completes digestion of the nutrients in chyme, absorbs the products of digestion, and transports the remaining residues to the large intestine. The small intestine consists of the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum.
    17. 21. LARGE INTESTINES <ul><li>Large intestine is the final part of the digestive tract and comprises three main regions – Cecum, colon and rectum. </li></ul><ul><li>Cecum is a short pouch that links the small intestine to the colon, which is about 5 feet long. </li></ul><ul><li>Colon changes liquid digestive waste products from the small intestine into a more solid form that the body excretes as feces via the rectum and anus. </li></ul>
    18. 22. The large intestine absorbs water and electrolytes and forms and stores feces. The large intestine consists of the cecum (pouch at the beginning of the large intestine), colon (ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid regions), the rectum, and the anal canal. The anal canal opens to the outside as the anus; it is guarded by an involuntary internal anal sphincter and a voluntary external anal sphincter muscle.
    19. 23. The large intestinal wall has the same four layers found in other areas of the alimentary canal, but lacks many of the features of the small intestinal mucosa. Fibers of longitudinal muscle are arranged in teniae coli that extend the entire length of the colon, creating a series of pouches (haustra). The large intestine does not digest or absorb nutrients, but it does secrete mucus. The large intestine absorbs electrolytes and water.
    20. 24. The movements of the large intestine are similar to those of the small intestine. Peristaltic waves happen only two or three times during the day. Defecation is stimulated by a defecation reflex that forces feces into the rectum where they can be expelled.
    21. 25. DIGESTION <ul><li>Digestive process involves a series of physical and chemical actions that break down the components of food into nutrient particles small enough for absorption. </li></ul><ul><li>Feces are composed of undigested material, water, electrolytes, mucus, and bacteria. </li></ul><ul><li>The color of feces is due to the action of bacteria on bile pigments. </li></ul><ul><li>The odor of feces is due to the action of bacteria. </li></ul>FECES

    74. 82. SPECIFIC PRACTICE <ul><li>Yoga aims at curing this problem by altering one's state of mind and helping the person to calm down physically and mentally. </li></ul><ul><li>When stress does not stimulate excess secretion of gastric juices, the ulcers heal naturally. </li></ul><ul><li>One also has to eat correctly so that wrong foods do not upset the digestive system. </li></ul><ul><li>It recommends chewing the food slowly and concentrating on eating. </li></ul><ul><li>Yoga recommends a high-fiber diet, regular exercise and avoid rushing in the morning. </li></ul>
    75. 83. <ul><li>Ulcers (peptic or duodenal) </li></ul><ul><li>General considerations : These problems are often related to stress and life-style. </li></ul><ul><li>Contraindications : In acute problems we usually avoid the practices which may increase the pain such as Agnisara Dhauti, Kapalabhati, Mayurasana, Shalabhasana or Bhunjangasana. Dhauti (Kunjal) should be avoided because it removes the protective mucus membrane and may irritate the stomach during vomiting. </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations : General relaxation and relaxation of the abdominal area. Meditation and calming pranayama in Vajrasana. </li></ul>
    76. 84. <ul><li>Pancreas (inflammation) </li></ul><ul><li>General considerations : Acute inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) is extremely painful and medical aid should be called immediately. </li></ul><ul><li>Contraindications : A careful approach, especially with the practices increasing the pressure in the abdominal cavity, is advisable even in people with chronic pancreatitis. </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations : Relaxation and meditation practices. </li></ul>
    77. 85. <ul><li>Colitis </li></ul><ul><li>General considerations : It is the inflammation of the large intestine. </li></ul><ul><li>Contraindications : Physically demanding practices strongly pressing or moving the intestines. </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations : Meditation and relaxation. </li></ul>
    78. 86. <ul><li>Kidney and urinary tracts diseases </li></ul><ul><li>General considerations : Medical advice about the ability to tolerate any exercise is advisable. </li></ul><ul><li>Contraindications : People with serious kidney diseases and dropsy should avoid excessive intake of water (e.g. during Shankha Prakshalana). People with acute inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract should avoid strenuous physical exercises and inverted asanas. To stop the flow of urine repeatedly during urination may strengthen the sphincters, but it may somewhat increase the risk of an inflammation. To insert a catheter (even a sterile one) in the urethra increases the risk of inflammation more. </li></ul>
    79. 87. <ul><li>Recommendations : Relaxation and Ujjayi in Shavasana for acute inflammations. Yoga tradition recommends Uddiyana, Agnisara Dhauti, Garudasana, etc. in non-acute problems. </li></ul>
    80. 88. <ul><li>Gallbladder stones </li></ul><ul><li>General considerations : Acute problems, especially if associated with inflammation, require medical aid. </li></ul><ul><li>Contraindications : No practices pressing or moving this area (such as Nauli) are advisable. </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations : Proper medical care can be supplemented by relaxation which decreases most types of pain. Laghoo Shankhaprakshalana can be according to Yoga tradition used in non-acute problems. </li></ul>
    81. 89. <ul><li>Recommended Asanas : </li></ul><ul><li>Rechaka - Puraka Pranayama </li></ul><ul><li>Uttanapadasan (Raising the legs) - exercises all abdominal muscles, corrects disorders of pancreas, cures constipation, wind troubles; takes away extra weight of abdominal area. </li></ul><ul><li>Pawanmuktasan (Relieving the flatus) - activates pancreas; acts as wind reliever, loosens hip joints, and cures constipation. </li></ul><ul><li>Bhujangasan (Cobra pose) - cures indigestion, constipation, stomachache, brings flexibility to spine. </li></ul>
    82. 90. <ul><li>Salabhasan (Locust pose) - activates kidneys, liver, pancreas, helps in diarrhea, acidity and gastro-intestinal disorders. </li></ul><ul><li>Paschim Uttaanasan (Head knee forward bend) - relieves stomach troubles, normalizes functioning of the nervous system. </li></ul><ul><li>Vajrasan - helps in digestion; relieves pain of calves and knees. Can be done immediately after meals. </li></ul><ul><li>Shavasan (Corpse pose) - relaxes all muscles, nerves and organs. </li></ul>
