Colitis is a disease in which you eat the food and you feel like excreting it out, there is huge abdomen pain, gas in stomach and problem of indigestion. Stools are improper and watery. This problem is very dangerous. It is much bad then BP, Heart problems, etc. It is very trouble creating disease. People consume steroids to overcome the problem. Initially it gives relief to the problem, later problem becomes worst.
The disease occurs usually who ate heavy foods, junk foods, ghee in large amounts in their childhood and to children who have drank large amount of milk. Same is the case for adults. IBS is directly related to stress. When a person is stressed or angry, IBS starts. When there is imbalance in ecology of stomach, colitis and IBS occurs. The good ecological health of stomach should be maintained. All the stomach diseases occurs due to imbalance of stomach ecology.
The best remedy for stomach problems, colitis, IBS, Constipation, Diarrhea is curd or buttermilk. Buttermilk or Curd also balances the ecology of stomach. Colitis can be cured permanently by drinking buttermilk or eating curd. But it should not be sour in taste. It should be fresh. Drink this by adding rock salt. Do not add sugar in buttermilk or curd for eating. If you eat unfresh curd or Buttermilk, it will increase acidity and may increase ulcers of stomach. This is the best remedy for ulcerative colitis.
Some times patient suffers from such a bad condition that they have 35-40 times of excretion a day with blood stools. For such treatment, at Patanjali Yogpeeth- we mix well ripe banana (Banana having black spots on it) with fresh curd (This is mixed in mixer grinder) and we give this to the patient of ulcerative colitis for consumption (CONSULT A DOCTOR BEFORE DOING THIS BECAUSE IT MAY CAUSE ACIDITY TO SOME PEOPLE). You can also eat boiled apple. It is very helpful. Boil it slowly and little. Sprouted grains works best in colitis. It may cause gas in beginning but later gas will be eliminated. Gas occurs because suddenly stomach is not able to adjust with new food. Later, it adapts and helps in curing the problem. Sprouts should not be long or short, length of it should be normal. You can also do TAKRAKALP which we also do in Yog Gram, Haridwar. We make patients drink MATHA KALP from 1-6 litres with the gap of 2-3 hours. This increase or decrease of litres is done very slowly and gradually. To some patients, problems get cured in 1 month and to some patients it may take long time. In Yog Gram, we do it for 45 days. Slowly and gradually patient is advised to stop this MATHA KALP. Boiled vegetables are given as a meal for some days. Slowly and gradually, normal meal is followed. Patient do not have to start eating heavy food after MATHA KALP treatment. Slowly and gradually, meal is increased if needed. We also do mud coating treatment in Yog Gram. This helps in curing swollen intestines and healing of ulcers in intestines. (If mud is unavailable) You can do this at home by using cotton cloth mixed with cold water. If you are using mud, it should not be dirty, it should be pure. This is best remedy for intestines and severe constipation and diarrhea.
