Homeopathy for Ulcerative colitis

Homeopathic Treatment for Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in which the inflammation and ulceration occur in the large intestine and/or rectum.

In the normal functioning of GIT (Gastro-Intestinal tract), the food passes from the mouth through the esophagus in the stomach, then to the small intestine, and further into the large intestine (also known as the colon). The water content from the food is absorbed by the colon and stored in the rectum for further bowel movements, after which it is excreted as feces from the anus.

There can be ulceration and inflammation in the colon or the rectal region.Ulcerative colitis can begin gradually and get worse over time. Many times, the patient experience no symptoms or mild symptoms. Ulcerative colitis is known for its fluctuating periods of normalcy and sudden bowel discomfort.Ulcerative colitis can also increase the risk of colon cancer.Chron’s disease is one of the other common Irritable bowel disease (IBD). Chron’s disease affects the small intestine whereas Ulcerative colitis commonly affects the large intestine.
