Ulcerative Disease and Crohn’s Disease DietGloria Dsouza
After being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis, the first question you ask your physician is “is there is there a cure for it?” He would probably tell you that there is no cure, but treatment (medications, surgery, etc.). These therapies, however, do not work for everyone. In fact, they can lead to complications in some patients. If you are one of those Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis victims, do not be depressed; it exists diets and natural remedies that can effectively make your life less miserable.
It is, however, important to avoid all foods that trigger the symptoms of those diseases. Whenever it is possible, reduce the consumption of fatty food (fish oil and flax oil are, however, highly recommended): milk (and milk products), and fiber supplements; these products increase your stool volume and irritate the inflamed intestines. Both Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis are chronic diseases; your diet must be healthy and non-irritating consisting mostly of natural products. These medical conditions may cause deficiencies in protein, vitamins (A, folic acid, B12, C, D, E and K) and certain minerals (calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium), an increase of these substances is highly recommended. Along with diet, certain herbs can also be taken:
German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) – German Chamomile has antispasmodic and analgesic properties. This plant has long been used in natural medicine against insomnia, digestion difficult (painful digestive spasms), and in the treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders: diarrhea, stomach ulcers. German Chamomile is also used effectively in treating dyspepsia, swelling, flatulence, and more. No adverse effects have been reported.
Boswell (Boswellia serrata) – In traditional medicine, Boswell is used to treat fever, rheumatism, asthma and gastrointestinal problems. In addition, Boswell is shown to reduce inflammation of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune conditions by blocking the lethal pro-inflammatory enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX). This remedy can be taken in capsule or tablet, three times per day; no negative effects have been reported.
Probiotics – Probiotics are non-pathogenic living microorganisms involved in the proper functioning of the digestive system. Lactobacillus acidophilus acidophilus is one of the Probiotics; it is beneficial for the health of the intestinal flora. Without these small organisms, intestinal flora can be infected by many disorders such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. You can buy probiotic dietary supplements on the internet or in any health store.
Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharides (AMP) – this is the most effective supplement you can use to fight digestive disorders including ulcerative colitis disease and Crohn’s disease. It has anti-inflammatory property, it regulate normal functioning of your intestine to prevent both diarrhea and constipation; it repairs the protective mucosa lining throughout the digestive system; it ensures healthy intestinal flora, and much more.
However, it is not easy to take all these supplements separately in a daily basis; you need an herbal remedy that combines all of them plus other ingredients.
