Abstract

Statement of the Problem: Functional GI disorders are increasingly researched to have a strong rooted relationship with underlying behavioral abnormalities that can be eff ectively addressed with Yoga in addition to standard medical care.Yoga is an ancient Indian discipline that entails practices to connect mental, spiritual and physical health to stimulate one's mind and body to become self aware and observant. Over centuries, this practice has revealed itself to offer therapeutic effects on multiple organ systems by virtue of a deeper connection between mental and physical health. Numerous gastrointestinal disorders have been discovered to have an underlying behavioral etiology. Th ese primarily include IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) (fi gure 1), FAPD (Functional Abdominal Pain Disorders) and IBD (Infl ammatory Bowel Disease). This article will aim to review gastrointestinal disorders with an associated behavioral or mental preponderance that have been studied to benefit from the healing and therapeutic effects of yoga.
