Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease, which pursues a protracted relapsing and remitting course. Inflammation invariably involves the rectum (proctitis) and may spread proximally to involve sigmoid colon (procto-sigmoiditis) and in some cases, it involves whole colon (pancolitis). The major symptom of ulcerative colitis is blood in stools. Currently there is no medical cure and Ayurveda treatment approaches are helpful in such diseases. A male patient of 27 years old complaining of bleeding per rectum and colicky pain in abdomen visited the OPD. Earlier medical examinations diagnosed him to be suffering from UC. He was on allopathic medicines since three years with remissions and exacerbations in the condition. Due to resemblance of the signs and symptoms; it was compared with Raktatisara and accordingly the case was treated. Nilotpaladi yoga with Goat milk along with Piccha basti was administered for a month, which resulted in complete remission of signs and symptoms. The report of sigmoidoscopy also showed positive findings. This reveals that Ayurveda treatment modalities can play a significant role in such conditions where successful treatment facilities are minimal in other medical systems.
