Homeopathy Treatment for Ulcerative Colitis / Crohns

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.


Ulcerative Colitis / Crohns

Causes & Risk factors

Immune cause:

The causes of ulcerative colitis are not known. Researchers believe that an abnormal activation of our immune system leading to chronic inflammation and ulceration of the digestive tract may be the sole culprit. Inflammation is a natural and essential mechanism of our body’s defense used by the immune system to counter infections. In patients with ulcerative colitis, this activation of the immune system may even occur in the absence of any triggers such as food, drugs or infections such as bacteria, virus, fungi or allergens and is therefore considered as an autoimmune condition.

Genetic cause:

It is seen that blood relations are more susceptible to develop IBD. It is therefore assumed that the abnormal immune activation may be genetically inherited. Surprisingly though, most people who have ulcerative colitis don't have a family history of this disorder.

Tests for the diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis

There is no single and definite test to diagnosis ulcerative colitis. The symptoms of ulcerative colitis such as abdominal pain, diarrhea and bloody stools and the elimination of other causes of these symptoms help in establishing ulcerative colitis as your illness. Your physician will run the following tests for a final diagnosis:

  • Stool samples help in excluding other causes such as infections which commonly mimic ulcerative colitis and will test positive for the presence of white blood cells (WBC) and blood in response to the inflammation and ulceration in the digestive tract.
  • Blood tests usually show anemia (low blood count), its severity depending on the extent of blood loss, and an elevated ESR (Sedimentation Rate) in response to the chronic inflammation in the colon. You physician may also check the levels of other inflammatory markers such as C - reactive protein as well as Iron levels, liver and kidney function.
  • Sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy help in directly visualizing the insides of the intestines and measure the extent and severity of the inflammation and ulceration.

Dietary and Lifestyle changes

Diet may or may not play a role in aggravating Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Nevertheless, specific food triggers which may affect you need to be avoided for better management of your illness. Below are some food triggers which may affect you and can be avoided:

  • Coffee or caffeinated drinks – causes abdominal cramps and increase gut motility
  • High-fiber food, whole grain products and raw vegetables – reducing helps in prolonging food transit time in the gut, reducing diarrhea
  • Other triggers: alcohol, carbonated drinks, dairy products - if lactose intolerant, meats, spices and sauces, nuts, sugar-free gums (sorbitol related), seeds, dried fruits, refined sugar, raw fruit and vegetable juice, popcorn, certain vegetable (cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, tomatoes with seeds, raw onions).

Lifestyle changes

  • Consume small meals rather than few large ones
  • Consume sufficient water
  • Exercise, yoga and de-stress yourself

Homeopathic treatment and its advantages

Homeopathy is the safest and gentlest mode of treatment available for chronic problems as it has no known side effects whatsoever. Homeopathic medicines are made from plants, minerals and natural resources and diluted to the extent that it can only guide the body’s healing mechanism at its cellular level and bring about recovery.

Action of Homeopathic medicines:

The homeopathic remedy used can vary depending on the goal of the treatment.

Constitutional remedy is a homeopathic remedy prescribed after a thorough understanding of the person’s symptoms, his/her personality, likes and dislikes, sleep, sensitivity, and the person as a whole. This remedy works at the level of the immunity and lowers stress and our body’s response to allergens. It is imperative to have this remedy along with specific remedies mentioned below.

Specific remedies in homeopathy are indicated in acute conditions and are known to immediately help and offer relief. They can help in reducing inflammation, ulceration and bleeding and work quickly, yet safely. Some such remedies are Alumina, Merc Cor, Merc Sol, Hamamelis, Nitric Acid and Sulphur. These are symptomatic remedies and will help in palliating or temporarily relieving the symptoms and may be used as the case demands.

Most patients can be withdrawn off their conventional medicines or their dosages reduced while promising better long-term prognosis and fewer and less severe relapses.

An ideal approach will be to prescribe a remedy on the basis of the totality of all the symptoms the patient presents with as the goal of the treatment is to correct the possible faulty immune response. This holistic or constitutional approach yields positive results in most patients treated at our centres and is strongly recommended for anyone suffering from this condition.

Better management with Homeopathy is the ultimate goal.
