I found a study on Research Gate titled
Effects of Ayurvedic treatment on forty-three patients of ulcerative colitis
This paper was originally published in An international quarterly journal of research in Ayurveda and claims that Ayurvedic treatment has a highly significant effect on ulcerative colitis patients.
In this study, it was observed that the symptoms and signs, daily dose of steroids and other anti-inflammatory drugs were reduced by more than 75% with a highly significant result. The hemoglobin level was also increased.
I am skeptical of these results for the reason that only 43 patients were included in the study and I’m not sure how significant of a result can be achieved with that number of people. I was also not able to find any kind of analysis of this paper nor the authors.
A clinical study of 43 patients of ulcerative colitis has been conducted at the O.P.D.(outdoor patient department)and I.P.D.(indoor patient department)of the P D Patel Ayurveda Hospital, Nadiad.
All the signs and symptoms were reduced by more than 80% and the reduction was statistically highly significant. RBCs in stool which is the main clinical sign of this disease was reduced by 93.02%. Hemoglobin increased by 16.76%. The dose of steroids was reduced by 87.32%. All the results were statistically highly significant.
