Background: Clinical manifestation of Grahani Roga is similar to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The prevalence of IBS varies from 11% to 14% in India. Due to the wide spectrum of diseases, much prevalence in society, and lack of effective medicines, the disease has been chosen for the trial. Aim: The aim of this study was to study the efficacy of Grahaninigraha Churna in the management of Grahani Roga (IBS). Materials and Methods: Twenty clinically diagnosed patients were selected and administered Grahaninigraha Churna – 4 g two times a day with buttermilk after meal for 30 days. Study Design: It was a single-center, open-label clinical study. Results: Improvement in Muhurbadhdmmahurdravm (alternative loose motion and constipation) and Ajirna (indigestion) was 64.91% and 50.00%, respectively, which was statistically highly significant (P < 0.001). Conclusion: Grahaninigraha Churna is effective in the management of Grahani Roga (IBS).
