Inflammatory bowel disease also better described as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
This is the term used to describe such gut issues as – Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
These are described as an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system attacks the body’s healthy cells.
What causes this to happen
Our bodies are self-regulating, and as such, the immune system only becomes disturbed when many internal and outside influences have disturbed the body to such a degree that the immune system turns on itself.
Food allergies and intolerances as these cause an inflammatory response in the gut damaging the intestinal linings enabling undigested food particles to enter the bloodstream with a subsequent immune response. These foods will then continue to stress the immune system until they are removed.
Apart from food intolerances, poor food choices will impact the nutritional integrity of the body (such as excessive sugar, gluten, dairy and alcohol to name a few).
With incorrect nutrition comes the possibility of microbial infection such as candida and intestinal parasites.
Irresponsible use of antibiotics and other medications will cause a reduction of gut flora, and this impacts our immune system completely.
Research into the importance of our gut flora is a growing field of research at present and scientists are excited at the possibilities which this research is affording us regarding improvement in many illnesses. So it has to be a major player.
Therefore most autoimmune diseases have at their core DIGESTIVE DISTRESS. One can liken the stomach and intestines to the petrol tank of a car. If there is no petrol in the tank, it goes nowhere.
Mental and emotional stress, which affect the adrenals.
How can we help
We offer a blood test to identify your individual food intolerances. This test is performed in a laboratory and tests for 150plus foods. It is imperative to remove these foods for a period of 3 months to allow the gut to heal.
Reinoculate the gut with probiotics to restore digestive chemistry. Supplement with our NOP 15 STRAIN PROBIOTIC LIQUID. However, once food intolerances have been determined, we can more specifically determine which probiotic you should be taking for your particular needs.
Follow a candida program; we offer anti-candida/fungal medications such as WARBURGIA and a candida diet to follow to eradicate this common health issue.
Supplement with Vitamin D as it is one of the main immune modulators WILLOW VITAMIN D take two at bedtime for three months.
We have a herbal tincture which has given good results to stop bleeding – NOP IBD DROPS.
