Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes ulcers and inflammation on the wall of the large bowel and rectum. The condition can be improved with wheatgrass.

Classic symptoms include abdominal pain, bleeding and diarrhea. Fatigue, weight loss and anemia can also occur.

Ulcerative colitis can occur at any age, but mainly in the 15 to 30 age group and affects males and females equally. There may be an hereditary predisposition. 

There are many theories about the cause of this illness. One theory is that the body's immune system may react abnormally to the bacteria that normally live in the large bowel i.e. there is most likely an autoimmune component involved.

Treatment usually consists of aminosalicylates and/or steroids which can usually help the patient maintain a reasonable quality of life. Also, the disease can remit completely from time to time. Unfortunately, most if not all of the drugs used can cause adverse effects such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Wheatgrass was used in a clinical trial of 23 ulcerative colitis patients in Israel and found to have very positive effects. (View NIH abstract)

Here is an interesting testimonial from an ulcerative colitis sufferer who had a remarkable recovery taking wheatgrass.
