Orlando, FL — April 22, 2016 - Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory, lifelong condition that originally develops in the rectum. When left untreated, it could jeopardize the health of the large intestine. The good news is that there are ways to increase one’s protection against the condition.
Experts reveal the preventive measures against ulcerative colitis. This condition causes the lining of the intestine to break down. The intestine contains trillions of bacteria when digesting food. The intestinal lining works by keeping these bacteria from cause an infection in the intestinal walls.
Bacteria remain invisible to the body’s immune cells when they are contained, and thus, they do not provoke a reaction. However, unfortunately, when the intestine’s lining fails, bacteria that are normally harmless can activate the immune system.
This condition is also an autoimmune disease. It triggers the immune system to mistakenly attack the body. It is the bowel bacteria that provoke the immune system to attack the intestinal wall, which causes injury to the bowel.
When inflammation in the bowel develops, it continues even when the immune system is no longer exposed to bowel bacteria.
Individuals who suffer from this condition typically experience various symptoms. Some of these symptoms are pain in the lower abdomen and bloody diarrhea. There are also those who suffer from sleep interruption to have bowel movements.
One of the measures to decrease the frequency of symptoms is to simply avoid foods that are believed to trigger flare-ups. This may include milk products and spicy foods. Eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet is essential to fight the condition.
Anti-inflammatory medicines are typically used to reduce symptoms, in addition to taking vitamins. There is also a natural remedy called turmeric, which is thought to help fight the condition.
Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice that has long been believed to fight a range of ailments. This spice contains a phytochemical called curcumin, which has therapeutic substances. Some of these healing ingredients are antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
A clinical study about turmeric and its effects on ulcerative colitis was published in the Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. It was found that in 89 participants, curcumin has helped maintain disease remission.
In 2009, an animal study that was published in the Food and Chemical Toxicology reveals that curcumin has the potential to protect against ulcerative colitis.
Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays. Individuals who want to take advantage of its healing benefits may take curcumin supplements. The best ones contain a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient called BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Supplement-BioPerine-Capsule/dp/B0166KAW8M).
