exh5601.jpgColitis is a much more serious and long-term inflammation and ulceration of the colon. It has been linked with an increased risk of colon cancer. Its cause is unknown. Several alternative therapies offer ways other than drugs or surgery to treat an inflamed colon. Bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus can be taken in powder, capsule, or liquid form (however, this bacteria should be avoided if the patient is lactose intolerant).Another serious concern in both types of colitis is nutritional deficiencies. Nutritional deficiencies may result for several reasons:People with the disorder may eat less than needed as a way of avoiding diarrhea and abdominal pain.Chronic diarrhea can lead to the loss of nutrients.Some of the drugs used in conventional treatment (such as corticosteroids) may interrupt nutrient metabolism.Mucosal irregularities can result in poor nutrient absorption.These patients, therefore, can benefit from taking supplements orally or by injection and eating smaller, more frequent meals.An elimination diet can help the health practitioner and patient link any foods with an aggravation of symptoms. Here’s how it might work:Commonly eaten foods are reintroduced, one at a time, every two days, noting if any symptoms appear.Arsenic 30: The Pain in the abdomen, especially at midnight from 12-2 a.m. is the main symptom for which the medicine named Arsenic should be taken.

There is extreme mental restlessness and fear, the victim can feel that he is about to die.Lachesis 30: Ulcerative colitis with offensive, bloody stools. Excessive sensitiveness to touch, an intolerance of tight clothing and a jealous or suspicious nature are other pointers to this remedy.Merc cor 30: The following are the symptoms that confirm the use of the Merc cor. Ulcerative colitis with copious, offensive bloody and slimy stools. There is severe, colicky pain in the abdomen before, during and after the stools. Other distinguishing features can be included as intense thirst and a moist, swollen tongue.Phos 30: Colitis with burning in the abdomen and the anus, and stools containing bright red blood are the important symptom for taking the Phos. An oversensitive nature and a craving for cold foods or drinks are other pointers to this medicine.

Homeopaths for the last two centuries have been constantly pushing this theory of mind and physical body being deeply interconnected and about fixing the problem at a mental level that can often help the other. After all, the brain is just another organ operating on the same biochemical principles as the thyroid or liver. What we experience as feelings, good or bad, are at the cellular level and no more than a complex interaction of chemicals and electrical activity. In homeopathy, mental symptoms of the patient are given the utmost importance.
