Flax seed ulcerative colitis

Common Questions and Answers about Flax seed ulcerative colitis


Avatar n tn I read through your post very carefully and based on that I feel that you are possibly suffering from Celiac Disease/Ulcerative Colitis/Irritable Bowel Syndrome. All these result in tender abdomen, loose stool or loose stools alternating with constipation, abdominal distention, cramps etc. Parasites in the gut like threadworm, tape worm, giardiasis etc can behave this way. Hence a stool test is a must.
Avatar f tn Inflammatory bowel disease is a collective term for diseases characterized by severe inflammation in the digestive system such as ulcerative colitis, which typically only affects the colon, and Crohn's disease, which can attack the entire digestive tract. IBD, which affects about one in 500 people, has become much more common since World War II, Carbonnel and his colleagues note. The reasons behind the increase are still unclear.
Avatar n tn Irritable bowel disease and inflammatory bowel disease are two seperate disease. Inflammatory bowel disease consists of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Normally, an endoscopy (either colonoscopy or upper endoscopy) would be needed for the diagnosis. Specifically, in Crohn's disease this can affect the small bowel, so some imaging of the small bowel may be needed. Treatment would involve steroids and other anti-inflammatories. Irritable bowel syndrome is caused by a spastic colon.
Avatar m tn Something you might have more access to in Jordan is flax seed meal. It is definitely best if you use flax seed ground up as a meal or flour. Some people use it the same way as they use the psyllium fiber, but you don't have to do that. You can make it more enjoyable to use by just sprinkling the ground up flax seeds over your everyday foods. If you have rice as breakfast, for example, ground flax seed sprinkled over the rice actually has a nice nutty flavor.
Avatar f tn I haev also had problems with my guts, I was constipated a lot as a child and in my early 20's had infectious ulcerative colitis and have really suffered with that on and off ever since. I had all kinds of tests but when I had a barium enima done the doctor said I had an incredibly long colon, almost three times longer than average, which could contibute to my stools becoming overly dry and therefor constipation. Could this be heriditory?
203342 tn?1328740807 Crohn's goes right through the whole mucosa of the intestines, unlike Ulcerative Colitis which only goes into the superficial layer. Colonoscopy - if I read the report correctly, you may have a stricture of the large intestine - anastomosis. This is caused by previous inflammation also. Not at all unusual with Crohn's, and you should be aware that you need constant monitoring for this.
Avatar f tn Lastly fix your problem instead of trying to compensate for it. A number of things can get you regular. First by flax seed and blitz it slightly. Take several tablespoons a day, you may need half a cup full a day to begin with. The most important thing you can do is buy specifically a cold press juicer for 6 weeks have nothing but juice. No fruit juice just vegetable with a few green apples to activate the enzymes.
645800 tn?1466864555 I think that varies from person to person. For me, the best thing is an ounce of ground flax seed in 3-4 ounces of yogurt every day and a stool softener taken twice a day. It took me close to four years of trial and error to find my personal successful combination! It's always preferable to avoid laxatives as a first line solution. Regular use of them can cause problems but softeners and regulators (like the Metamucil) are fine if they work well for you.
Avatar n tn That being said here's what my 15 years of research experimentation taught me. FLAX SEED SOLUTION- this is an old home remedy that really works if you drink it everyday on an empty stomach. Bring a gallon of water to a boil then turn off the heat. Pour in 1 to 2 cups of WHOLE FLAX SEEDS-NOT FLAX MEAL. and just stir and let the mix come to room temp while stirring every 30 min or so.
Avatar f tn If it attacks the bowels, it manifests as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. When the connective tissue is attacked, a person might end up with scleroderma or lupus. If the myelin sheath around the nerve is the target, multiple sclerosis (MS) ensues. In the case of autoimmune diseases, I believe one's immune system is not able to distinguish self from non-self. Being confused, the body is essentially destroying itself.
Avatar m tn Rye bread pita (allergy-No- yeast, soy, vegi-olive-canola-flax oils, barley) maybe add poppy or sesame on the bread Rice bread made from white rice flower and buckwheat noodles Pasta: Rice noodles from white rice if I can find it. Corn: Corn flakes no sugar, hot air pop corn. Meats: chicken, turkey, fish, pork, egg whites-(but wonder if they are a problem) Dairy: Mozzarella cheese from part skim-(with lactaid product), no sugar added.
537974 tn?1213748515 I am a 38 year old woman that was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. For the most part I know my triggers, so I stay away from certain foods...but when I had a bowel movement(was not straining) I started getting hot and felt like I had to throw up...then I got this horrible pain that shot from my neck to the back of my head...the back of my head felt like it was gonna explode...WHAT IS THIS....
Avatar n tn garlic (except for those of you who suspect it acerbates the situation, I would guess) black pepper ginger cayenne pepper ginseng cinnamon horseradish dill seed pau d'arco astragalus In addition, I am taking a digestive enzyme, avoiding alcohol, caffeine, dairy and acidic foods and drinking a vitamin/energy shake at least 3 mornings a week. I'll let you know how it goes.
Avatar n tn , but I really dont want to have to give that up as well as everything else I had to stop due to my auto immune disease (Ulcerative Colitis). Tanning is relaxing to me and it wasnt like I tanned all the time but it was nice to tan during the winter when it was so cold and also to have a base tan so I didnt burn while on vacation.
Avatar n tn I have an illeo- anal pouch- (it is on the inside of body- you can look up if interested for Ulcerative Colitis. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis- Arthritis of the spine and can affect other joints. I have had some digestive issues going along with this. Some times constipation sometimes diarrhea. Now- to give you all a laugh. My neurologist wants me to got my gastro guys to look and check everything out in there. Well.
