Home Remedies for Colitis, Natural Cures



The term colitis refers to the chronic inflammation of the inner lining of the digestive tract especially in the colon (large intestine) and rectum. Colitis can affect people of all ages causing unbearable pain and discomfort in the bowel movement. All the digested food and the wastes are collected in colon which facilitates the elimination of these wastes through bowel movements. Water and the electrolytes present in the wastes are absorbed by the inner layers of the colon or mucosa solidifying the faeces. Due to several causes this movement of the wastes and absorption of electrolytes gets hampered resulting in irritable bowel movements.

Symptoms

1. Acute abdominal pain and cramps.
2. Bleeding in the rectum followed by diarrhea.
3. Unable to perform the bowel movement in spite of urgency.
4. Fever along with symptoms of infection.

Causes

Colitis may result due to various infections and inflammations.

1. Infection in the colon can be caused due to the virus and bacteria through different food. Shigella, E.coli and Clostridium are some bacteria responsible for the infections.

2. Narrowing of the arteries due to atherosclerosis can restrict the blood flow in the colon causing inflammation.

3. Due to some mechanical reasons the blood flow may get restricted and result in bowel disorders.

4. The autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis also causes inflammation of the colon.
