Crohn's disease is a persistent inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects any part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is characterized by periods of remission (no or mild symptoms) and relapse (moderate to severe symptoms).
The most common symptom of Crohn's disease is abdominal pain, often in the lower right area, although it can be anywhere in the abdomen. Other common symptoms include:
While the exact cause of Crohn's disease not really known but is believed to be a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Genes play a big role in the development of the condition, and certain ethnic groups are also at increased risk. Crohn's disease is also more common in people who live in industrialized countries, which suggests that certain environmental factors may play a role. These environmental factors are not yet understood, but they may include diet, hygiene, or infections.
There are several groups of medications used to treat Crohn's disease. Some of these options are used to help manage your symptoms and are called induced remission. Medication, also called maintenance of remission or maintenance, is used to reduce the incidence of Crohn's disease.
Unlike ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease cannot be cured with surgery. However, Crohn's symptoms can be managed with newer Crohn's drugs, which may include: immunosuppressants, , antidiarrheal, or corticosteroids. Stem cell therapy may also be a possible treatment option for people with Crohn's disease, primarily due to the therapy's ability to fight and relieve inflammation, an underlying disease symptom.
Drugs used to treat Crohn's disease are designed to suppress the abnormal inflammatory response of the immune system that causes symptoms. Stopping inflammation relieves common symptoms like fever, diarrhea, and pain and allows gut tissue to heal.
An enema is one possible solution if you're opting for a natural way to treat Crohn’s disease. Enemas are believed to help with Crohn's disease by cleansing the large intestine and removing harmful toxins from the body. They can also help to reduce inflammation in the intestines. There are a few different types of enemas that you can use to treat Crohn's disease. The most common type is the Fleet Phospho-Soda enema, which uses a solution of sodium phosphate and water. This type of enema is generally safe and effective but can cause side effects like bloating and gas. If you're looking for a more natural solution, you can try using a herbal enema.
Herbal enemas use herbs like chamomile, ginger, or lavender to help soothe the digestive tract and reduce inflammation. To use an enema, you'll need to purchase an enema kit from a medical supply store or online retailer.
Read the instructions carefully before using an enema. Once you've prepared the enema solution, lie down on your justify side and insert the tip of the applicator into your rectum. Slowly release the solution into your body until the bag is empty. Remain lying down for at least 10 minutes, then get up slowly to avoid dizziness. You should start to feel relief from your symptoms within 30 minutes.
Consult a healthcare professional before administering an enema by yourself.
