I am 56 years old. I am suffering from ulcerative colitis since 15 years.what can i do?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Refrain from having anti-inflammatory pain medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Causes are more or less idiopathic, ie reasons for this is unknown yet! one possible cause is an immune system malfunction. When your immune system tries to fight off an invading virus or bacterium, an abnormal immune response causes the immune system to attack the cells in the digestive tract, for diet: avoid foods that you know cause you trouble. You can have lots of probiotics and curd. Consult privately for detailed treatment in biochemic.

It could be because of gastritis or something cardiac. You should definitely meet a general physician and get ecg done to rule out ischaemia. And if its just gastritis. Here are some home remedies for you :- - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

Your body type is ectomorphic. You do not have good appetite and can not eat too much. Eat small 6 meals in a day. Do rice based carbohydrates with dal and curd and lots of vegetables. If you are non veg then do some fish or chicken for lunch and dinner. In between meals can be fruits and nuts. Try taking some digestive enzymes for better digestion for few days. Drink lime water or apple cider vinegar with water empty stomach.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Know the Types!

Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Know the Types!

It is important for you to know about inflammatory bowel disease or IBD, it is a group of intestinal disorders, which leads to prolonged inflammation of your digestive tract. The digestive tract is made of the mouth, stomach, oesophagus, small intestine and large intestine. It performs the task of breaking down food, removing unusable materials and waste products, and for breaking down nutrients from food. Inflammation along with the digestive tract causes disruption in this process. IBD is a fatal condition which can be life threatening in some cases.

Major types of inflammatory bowel disease
The term inflammatory bowel disease is an umbrella term under which many diseases are included. The two major and most common diseases under IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease (a chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines, especially the colon and ileum, associated with ulcers and fistulae) can lead to inflammation in any part of your digestive tract. It commonly affects the small intestine’s tail end. In case of ulcerative colitis, inflammation takes place in the large intestine.

Causes of IBD
Although the exact cause of IBD is not known, several factors may lead to this condition. They are as follows:

  1. Genetics: You are more likely to develop IBD if someone in your family has the disease. This is because of the genetic component of IBD.
  2. The immune system: The body’s immune system plays a role in IBD. Usually, your immune system defends your body from pathogens. A bacterial or viral infection in the digestive tract may lead to an immune response. The digestive tract becomes inflamed as the body fights against the bacteria or viruses. The inflammation goes away when the infection is gone.

However, in the case of IBD, the digestive tract inflammation may occur without any infection. Your immune system attacks your body’s cells. This is called an autoimmune response. IBD can also occur when the infection is cured, but the inflammation remains.

Symptoms
The various symptoms of IBD depend on the severity and location of the inflammation. They are as follows:

  1. Diarrhoea which occurs when the bowel cannot reabsorb water.
  2. Bleeding ulcers which cause blood to show up in your stool.
  3. Stomach pain, bloating and cramping because of bowel obstruction.
  4. Weight loss and anaemia, which leads to delayed development and growth in children.
  5. In patients with Crohn’s disease, canker sores may develop in the mouth.
  6. Ulcers and fissures may appear on the anus or genital area.
  7. IBD may also be associated with problems such as eye inflammation, arthritis and skin disorders.

The major complications which may arise from IBD include colon cancer, malnutrition with weight loss, fistulas, intestinal rapture and bowel obstruction. It is important for you to consult a doctor on noticing any of the IBD symptoms.

High cholesterol and vitamin D deficiency can be because of diet and lack of exercise so I need to work on your diet, avoid all kinds of fatty and junk foods and do at least 45 minutes of regular exercise at least 5 days a week as for liver and kidney dysfunction you need to get for the revaluation to find the cause of them because the treatment for them is to eliminate the base cause Which can be infections inflammations or some bad habits like drinking smoking etc. To comment on the exact cause one needs a complete medical history along with the detailed examination and the exact reports to have a Clear View on the case so I would advise you to get back to me with all these reports.
