It is supposed to be one of the most common types of bacteria that causes diarrhea related to antibiotics.

In the asymptomatic patients, the bacterium has entered the body but the infection has not manifested yet. The patient contains the clostridium difficile bacteria in her/his body but does not show any symptoms. This kind of patient will act as a potential carrier for infection in the favorable condition.

Ayurvedic Aspect

Clostridium difficile infection can be correlated with the imbalance of the three fundamentals of the body, i.e. vata, pitta, and kapha. And the hindrance of natural levels of jathara agni. Jathara agni is supposed to be responsible for the digestion of the food consumed and therefore providing nutrition to the body. So any imbalance in the natural levels of the jathara agni will lead to diseased conditions. Along with Jathara agni, the major imbalance that leads to this condition is supposed to be Pitta. This condition may be a result of pureesh veh, anna vaha srotas and udak veh rotas. Hence, to treat the abnormality we need to reset the hindered equilibrium of jathara agni and bring back the healthy state of the body.
