Many studies have been conducted for the role of Ahara (~dietary habits), Vihara (~abnormal Physical activity) and Manas (~Psychological factors) and their association with pathogenesis of Ulcerative colitis, which is a subtype of inflammatory bowel disease, which pursue a protracted relapsing and remitting course, usually extending over years. The causes of relapsing of ulcerative colitis are not known. Dietary factors have been associated in the pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis as well as associated with an increased risk of relapse of ulcerative colitis. Here, we have reviewed the probable mechanisms of the role of diet and its association with pathogenesis of Ulcerative colitis (UC). In Ayurveda, on the basis of signs and symptoms ulcerative colitis can be best compared with Raktatisara. This article is an attempt to do critical review and put a light on the role of diet, faulty lifestyle and Psychological factors in occurrence and progression of Ulcerative colitis (UC), and try to explain Etiopathogenesis of Raktatisara in relation to ulcerative colitis by going through Ayurvedic texts, Google Scholar, PubMed journals etc.
