Colitis may occur in people of any age, but most often it starts between ages 15 and 40. We know from official research and clinical testing that people with colitis or ulcerative colitis have serious abnormalities of the autoimmune system. This disease causes inflammation and sores, called ulcers, in the lining of the large intestine. The inflammation usually occurs in the rectum and lower part of the colon, but it may affect the entire colon. The most common symptoms of colitis or ulcerative colitis are abdominal pain, fatigue, weight loss, loss of appetite and loss of body fluids and nutrients. It affects men and women equally and tends to run in some families.
As is true with most inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), most people with colitis are initially treated with drugs. However, 99 percent of all pharmaceutical drugs do not heal or cure, but merely hide or mask symptoms that leave the causative factors intact. Additionally, the drugs may cause many adverse side effects, some of which can be severely debilitating. Surgery at times is recommended, but it is important to note that, while surgery can help with ulcerative colitis, it does not cure it. Is there another course of action we can take which will bypass the inherent risks of drugs and surgery?
To assist in answering this, we refer to information drawn from public, academic, government and peer-reviewed research. Primary research results show that over half of the chronic and serious diseases in the United States are caused by food. Since ulcerative colitis is one of the more serious chronic food related diseases, when something goes wrong, it is logically consistent with the latest research to carefully examine the substances that flow through the mouth for the source of the problem.
The Complement Antigen Test is a natural approach to treating colitis or ulcerative colitis. By using a multiple pathway test, I offer a more comprehensive analysis for reactions that cause this enervating illness. Reactive foods can be identified accurately and quickly through the use of our blood test. Removing the offending foods from your diet allows the body's natural healing process to begin thereby providing lasting relief from the devastating effects of ulcerative colitis.
