The therapy provided significant relief in all most all the symptoms of non specific colitis (Jirna Pravahika) patients. It also significantly reduced frequency of stool, mucus in stool and tenderness in abdomen and improved the digestion power of the patients. The therapy provided marked improvement to 20% patients, moderate improvement to 60% patients and mild improvement to 10% patients.
