Ulcerative colitis affects many people and is one of the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). It usually affects people between 15-30 years of age, but can occur even in early childhood.
We are currently working with an 8 year-old boy who first expressed symptoms of ulcerative colitis at the age of 2 years. Children with the disease may experience delayed growth.
The Common Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis are:
- abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea.
- anemia from the chronic blood loss
- weight loss
- loss of appetite
- rectal bleeding
- sores on the skin
- joint pain.
Homeopathy closely considers the exact cluster of symptoms expressed by any one individual with this disease, and then addresses those symptoms with carefully selected and scientifically prepared homeopathic remedies.
Some people have only mild symptoms while others have severe symptoms that can be debilitating and greatly affect their quality of life. Needing to know where the nearest toilet is located impacts all social activities. For you to regain quality of life, the symptoms must be relieved permanently. Classical homeopathy always aims to cure the disease, not just ameliorate the symptoms.
What about Nutritional Support in the Treatment Plan?
In addition to prescribing homeopathic treatment, the homeopathic physician may recommend diet and nutritional support for IBD patients. Since the bowel is inflamed, ulcerated and bleeding, the absorption of vital nutrients may be hindered. A good nutritional program can help eliminate foods that may act as irritants to the lining of the bowel.
The Difference between Conventional Medicine and Homeopathy
Conventional medicine can only suppress and control the symptoms with drugs that have serious side effects, like steroids. Homeopathic treatment is holistic and harmony can be restored at all levels of the life process. Homeopathy is individualistic because it addresses the uniqueness of each person, especially the personal way in which your symptoms are experienced.
Disease occurs in the body because the vital energy is out of balance. Homeopathic treatment works through the innate intelligence of the mind-body to stimulate the body’s own healing capacities. Homeopathy closely considers the exact cluster of symptoms expressed by any one individual with this disease, and then addresses those symptoms with carefully selected and scientifically prepared homeopathic remedies.
The goal of homeopathic treatment is to permanently heal and restore normal bowel function
Homeopathy restores the body to balance and gradually over time, the body can heal with the aid of homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy stimulates the immune system to return to a state of homeostasis. The effectiveness of Homeopathy in curing disease has been recorded over its 200 year history.
