Colon Health Problems
Today many people suffer from colonist-related health problems. There are so many colon-related diseases (large intestine) that it is hard to believe. Millions of people suffer from digestive or bowel problems and many thousands die from colon cancer every year. Almost all people know someone who suffers from this disease or something similar. It is becoming an epidemic of our society.

It is very important to consult a doctor who can diagnose and treat these problems. But first, how do you know you might have problems in the large intestine? Here’s a list of the problems that can affect this critical organ:

Irritable Bowel

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder that affects the gastrointestinal tract; it is the most common colon-related disease today. The causes are generally unknown and the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome include swelling, flatulence, abdominal pain, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation and blood in the stool. These symptoms tend to get worse during periods of stress, poor diet and some sexual activities.

Treatment for irritable bowel syndrome includes changes in our diet, changes in lifestyle and often requires medication. Avoiding certain foods can help prevent swelling and flatulence, such as beans, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.

Another common treatment is to increase fibre intake as it reduces the likelihood of bowel spasm during digestion. Adding more fibre to the diet also helps to have more regular bowel movements and reduces the possibility of constipation.

Stress is also one of the causes that can lead to irritable bowel syndrome, so exercising regularly and eating an appropriate diet can help reduce stress and other problems related to this disease.

Tobacco also aggravates the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome as well as certain foods.

Constipation

It is important to understand that constipation is not a disease, it is a symptom. Constipation occurs when the intestines become compacted because they do not have enough water. This condition, when the stool becomes hardened, can make evacuation very difficult and although many people suffer from this problem they can be treated.

A person with hardened stool reduces bowel movements considerably, usually from two or three a day to two or three a week. If the bowels do not evacuate for three days in a row, this can cause pain and severe difficulty at the time of defecation.

There are many causes that can be associated with constipation, such as not taking enough fibre, some medications, pregnancy, irritable bowel syndrome, ignoring or delaying the urge to go to the toilet and excessive use of laxatives.

There are many natural ways to prevent and relieve this disease, including eating more fiber (try flaxseed, rice bran, oat bran, beans, peas, apples, pears, blackberries), taking regular exercise, drinking plenty of fluids, preferably water, avoiding the use of more laxatives and going to the bathroom at the same time every day.

There are several natural products for intestinal cleaning that you can use to clear the intestines (we recommend Digest It) and evacuate more easily. Making an enema also helps to clean the intestines and allows you to evacuate more easily. Constipation
An enema refers to inserting a tube into the rectum to inject water into the intestines. This water is retained for some time (about 10 minutes) and then released along with the liquefied stool.

Another option for colon cleansing is colon irrigation. A doctor or practitioner performs colon hydrotherapy in a clinic, the patient lies on a table and a tube is inserted into the rectum allowing the water to flow in and out of the bowel carrying the faeces out of the colon. Colon hydrotherapy is usually more comfortable to do an enema.

Diarrhoea

Diarrhoea is the frequent passage of loose liquid feces accompanied by swelling of the stomach and gas. Diarrhoea is also a symptom and not a disease, although complications related to diarrhoea can often cause serious illness. The most serious problem caused by diarrhoea is dehydration, as the faeces are usually watery, which causes the body to lose a lot of water. Diarrhoea is often accompanied by vomiting, which also causes the body to lose even more water. Diarrhoea

Diarrhoea can be caused by several things, such as viral infections, bacterial infections and irritable bowel syndrome.

This uncomfortable disease usually disappears in two or three days, even without treatment. Most people can treat diarrhoea at home by drinking plenty of fluids and on a baked diet. In the most severe cases natural remedies can be used to treat diarrhoea (we recommend Bowtrol Colon Control).

Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis is basically inflammation of the colon. There are many causes of colitis including poor blood circulation, infections and autoimmune reactions. Viruses and bacteria are the cause of most intestinal infections. Most come from food poisoning. And coli, Shigella and Salmonella can cause colitis.

Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, blood in the stool, a consistent urge to evacuate, often constant pain, fever and chills.

Treatment for colitis includes antibiotics, intravenous fluids, and a combination of medications that are given to the patient and monitored for a certain amount of time.

Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation and swelling of the digestive tract. It usually affects the small intestine and some parts of the colon and is often confused with other colon diseases such as ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and diverticulitis.

Crohn’s Disease Symptoms of Crohn’s disease include persistent diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, and fatigue. There is no cure, but there are many treatments available to help control the disease and keep the symptoms under control for a long period of time.

Some people who suffer from the disease may have to have surgery at some point in their lives. The surgery can eliminate intestinal blockage, treat symptoms that the medication cannot, and repair damage to the intestine.

Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal (colon cancer) occurs when tumors form in the large intestine. Sometimes they are benign tumors called polyps that form inside the intestine, while malignant tumors in the large intestine are called types of cancer. Benign polyps can be removed during a colonoscopy and they are not fatal. If polyps are not removed they can degenerate into colon cancer over time.

Colorectal cancer can be hereditary or caused by a high-fat diet, the presence of polyps in the intestine and chronic ulcerative colitis. As you may already know, it is fatal in many cases, but can sometimes be treated if diagnosed in time.

Surgery is the most common treatment for this type of intestinal cancer. During the operation, the tumor is removed. The patient is then observed regularly to make sure that the cancer has not spread to other organs, but if it has spread, further surgery or chemotherapy may be required.

Colon cancer is the most fatal disease of all colonic health problems. That is why it is so important to take care of yourself, eat a well-balanced diet, exercise regularly and report any abnormalities to your doctor.
