Barron’s Dictionary of Medial Terms defines Ulcerative colitis as;
“ … serious and chronic inflammatory disease of the large intestine and rectum characterized by recurrent episodes of abdominal pain, fever, chills, and profuse diarrhea, with stools containing pus, blood and mucus.” (page 570)
Irritable Bowel syndrome as:
“…condition characterized by recurrent abdominal pain, usually crampy in nature, and diarrhea, often alternating with periods of constipation. (page 296)
In addition, Crohn’s disease as:
“…chronic inflammatory condition affecting the colon and/or terminal part of the small intestine and producing frequent episodes of diarrhea (the feces are typically non-bloody and semi soft), abdominal pain, nausea, fever, weakness, and weight loss.” (page 143)
In accepted medical practices, treatment ranges from medication, diet to removal of parts of the intestinal tract. Natural medicine uses similar methods of treatment for these conditions, by administering some kind of remedy by mouth.
We have found one common problem in all the cases of bowel disorder we have treated, episodes of diarrhea. If you accept that the digestive system works under pressure, then the following explanation will be easy to understand.
· Food enters your mouth and goes down the esophagus to the stomach.
· The food is partly digested in the stomach with stomach acids.
· When the pressure gets high enough the pyloric sphincter opens and allows the food to enter the small intestine.
· There is supposed to be a resistance, pressure caused by the ileocecal value, the valve between the small and large intestine opens and closes to allow matter through. If there is no pressure created by the proper functioning of the ileocecal valve, the digested food leaving the stomach will head straight for the rectum and diarrhea occurs.
What we do is release the surplus electrical charge in the region of the ileocecal valve. This allows the return of sufficient blood flow to the area which in turn allows the ileocecal valve to regain its elasticity and to begin functioning properly again. The diarrhea problem is resolved.
Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome are harder to treat because they involve injuries to other areas of the abdominal wall. The whole abdomen and back have to be treated to alleviate these conditions. It therefore takes more time to successfully eliminate these conditions than in the case of ulcerative colitis.
The villi of the intestine absorb most of the body’s nutrients. There are different sections of the small intestine that absorb different nutrients. If the body requires more of a particular nutrient, might not the villi try to expand so they can absorb larger amounts to meet the body’s requirements? Perhaps this is the reason why individuals who has Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome have large polyps in their intestine.
