Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Homeopathy for Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease
An abnormal immune response leading to inflammation and ulceration of the gastrointestinal tract is the root cause of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. This abnormal response may occur in the presence and even absence of a trigger factor. Homeopathy works wonders in all such autoimmune diseases and highly recommended for long-term use. Abnormal activation of the Immune system is the root cause of IBD.
Specialized Homeopathic treatment balances your immune response.
Homeopathy helps in reducing severity and preventing relapses.
Our treatment has no side-effects whatsoever.
What is Ulcerative Colitis (UC)?
Ulcerative colitis is an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) that causes chronic inflammation and ulceration of the inner lining of a part of your digestive tract – the large intestine (colon) and rectum.
The colon is the part of the digestive system where waste material is stored and the rectum is the end of the colon, the closest part to the anus. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea and rectal bleeding which usually develop gradually and generally vary depending on the extent and severity of the inflammation.
The course of ulcerative colitis varies among patients and during the life cycle of this condition. Generally, patients experience periods of severe complaints alternating with periods of remission. The severity of the relapses and symptoms tends to be the same. The treatment we use (homeopathic) helps in reducing the frequency and severity of these relapses and has benefitted most individuals over time.
There's no known cure for ulcerative colitis, so far. However, careful management with the different treatments available can radically reduce the signs and symptoms of UC and even help in putting this debilitating condition into remission. We therefore urge you to start Homeopathy and strongly recommend this line of side-effect free treatment for your long-term intestinal health.
About Crohn’s disease
Crohn’s disease is a similar condition (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) which affects anywhere in the digestive tract (mouth to rectum) and does so in different, separate sections. Ulcerative colitis usually affects in one continuous section of the inner lining of the colon beginning with the rectum. Unlike ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s may also cause complications outside the gastrointestinal tract such as skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye and chronic fatigue.
Differentiating Crohn’s from Ulcerative colitis:
- Diarrhea with blood in Crohn’s disease is not as sever as in UC
- Abdominal pain in Crohn’s is more constant
- Fistula-in-ano is very common in Crohn’s unlike UC
- Crohn’s affects the small and large bowels, whereas UC only affects the large bowels (colon, rectum)
- Weight loss much more pronounced in Crohn’s due to mal-absorption as it affects the small intestines too.
Classification of Ulcerative colitis and its signs and symptoms
Ulcerative Colitis has been classified depending on the part it affects and its corresponding signs and symptoms:
Involvement of the Rectum (Ulcerative Proctitis)
Inflammation is limited to the rectum, the part closest to the anus. The symptoms include rectal bleeding, rectal pain, and sense of urgency.
Involvement of the Rectum & Sigmoid colon: (Proctosigmoiditis)
Inflammation involves the rectum and the lower end of the colon, known as the sigmoid colon. Symptoms include abdominal pain/cramps, bloody diarrhea, and a constant urge to pass stool.
Involvement of the Rectum, Sigmoid & Descending colon (Left-sided colitis):
Inflammation involves the rectum, the sigmoid and descending colon (located in the upper left part of the abdomen). Symptoms include left sided abdominal pain/cramps, bloody diarrhea, and weight loss.
Involvement of Entire colon (Pancolitis)
Inflammation involves the entire colon, leading to severe abdominal cramps/pain, bloody diarrhea, and severe weight loss.
