It was during the time of World War 2, the 50s when inflammatory bowel conditions were found in humans. Ever since then doctors and pharmaceutical companies are relentlessly trying to find the reason behind these conditions and find a solution that actually works. However, they are not yet successful in finding the cause for the inflammatory bowel conditions and are offering treatments which are based on assumptions. They treat every inflammatory bowel condition as different and offer different treatments for different conditions. Immune suppressants, steroidal medicines are heavily prescribed and if nothing works, surgeries are the last resort. And even after the surgery, the patients need to follow a strict dietary protocol to avoid any roughage on the damaged walls. Amidst all these confusions and assumptions what people are failing to do is take time to look into the big picture.
Inflammatory bowel conditions like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndromes), Colitis, Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s diseases are no different from one another, they are all different stages of a single condition. And neither are they caused by germs or genetics. They all share a same cause and require a specific treatment. The only difference between all of them is the severity of their symptoms. While IBS and Colitis have very mild symptoms like persistent diarrhea, bloated stomach and nausea, Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease are more dangerous with severe symptoms like blood and mucus in stool, heartburn, joint and arthritis pain.
So if all inflammatory bowel conditions share a similar cause, what is that? Well, the answer is synthetic antibiotics. The word should be pretty familiar to you since it is used in almost all medicines, toothpastes and soaps. The food and water we consume is also no exception to this. Synthetic antibiotics kill all the good bacteria present on the mucosal lining of the intestinal walls, thus leaving the lining weak and vulnerable to attacks from strong digestive acids. Once pores are formed on the lining and the acids breach through it, the delicate intestinal walls are attacked and on constant exposure, these walls are damaged leading to inflammation, pain and irritability in the colon. Every inflammatory bowel condition starts the same way and only become different as the symptoms get worse. The only way to avoid surgery is to take action as soon as possible. And popping pills made of synthetic antibiotics again isn’t the solution, Holistic Gastroenterology is.

It recommends nutritious food habits which are rich in the nutrients that the damages tissues of the intestinal wall needs. Once these nutrients are provided in the form of food, the tissues are healed once and for all and henceforth no surgery is required, nor any drugs. It’s really that simple!
