What is it?
Colitis is the chronic inflammation or development of sores on the mucus membrane of the lower intestine, colon and rectum. It’s often caused by the contents of the digestive system, which may be toxic or acting as irritants.
Evidence shows that a clear correlation exists between Colitis and a poor diet. Excess amounts of refined carbohydrates often cause it as they are low in fibre. Meat can also cause colitis as it is more difficult to digest and therefore puts greater stress on the gut.
Agricultural residues and food processing chemicals can also be contributing factors and it is likely that artificial chemicals and some drugs, in particular antibiotics, have an adverse effect on normal bowel flora thus contributing to colitis. Sensitivity to certain types of foods, notably wheat can also trigger it.
How do you treat it?
Although relief of symptoms does exist, it doesn’t normally get to the root causes. Chronic colitis often drains the body of Vitamin A, D and K reserves. It also impairs its ability to absorb Vitamin B, including Folic acid and Pantothenic acid. It affects various minerals in the body too, like Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Zinc.
