Chron’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis 2

Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are closely related conditions and are sometimes referred to as inflammatory bowel disease/syndrome (IBD/IBS). Ulcerative colitis causes frequent or relentless inflammation of one or more sections of the intestine. This inflammation progresses into ulcers or open sores. Ulcerative colitis only transpires in the colon or large intestine contrasting Crohn’s disease, which can be extensive.

These chronic illnesses both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease can become incapacitating to it’s sufferers. The facility for absorption of food by the intestines is hampered, which may lead to nutritional insufficiencies. Ulcerative colitis sufferers find that some foods intensify symptoms, and consequently they are forever experimenting to find foods that they can tolerate.

Ulcerative colitis is an unpredictable illness with times when it is vigorous and others when it is in remission. Signs and symptoms of ulcerative colitis include bloody bowel movements, diarrhea, and pressing trips to the toilet. Ulcerative colitis is an unpredictable condition with times when it is vigorous and others when it is in remission. Additional symptoms of ulcerative colitis are mucus, pus and blood in the stools, tiredness, abdominal pain and sometimes fever.

Making a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis can be difficult because there are many causes for persistent diarrhea. Many of these other illnesses are more common than ulcerative colitis. The most useful test used to aid diagnosis of ulcerative colitis is Endoscopy. Blood tests and X-ray’s are also useful in the diagnostic process. The most commonly used ulcerative colitis drugs are Corticosteroids.

In order to eliminate ulcerative colitis altogether, the patient relies on surgical removal of the entire colon as well as the rectum. The number of people who undergo ulcerative colitis surgery and colon removal is over one-fifth and under one-third.

Crohn’s disease, however, as with some other chronic illnesses has no known cure. Drugs can alleviate the symptoms as can surgical removal of the infected organ in severe cases.

Since the 1980s, researchers have been demonstrating the benefits of coconut oil for individuals with digestive disorders and diseases, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Coconut oil is an anti-inflammatory and it seems that it plays a role in alleviating and curing the inflammation and damage in the digestive tract that are characteristic of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Coconut oil’s antimicrobial assets also affect intestinal health by destroying bothersome micro-organisms that may cause the chronic inflammation symptoms of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

As strange as this may sound, there is scientific backing that relief can be found for the symptoms of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, by eating macaroons. If you don’t like macaroons and cooked coconut products, then coconut oil and coconut milk are just as effective as a natural treatment to bring the patient relief from ulcerative colitis and crohn’s disease. Always seek the advice of your physician, though, before adding anything new to your diet.
