Treating Ulcerative Colitis with Diet
OK, but what about cutting back on sulfur-containing amino acids in general? This study, of four ulcerative colitis sufferers, found that their daily bouts of bloody diarrhea significantly lessened. So, reduced intake of sulfur-containing, amino acid rich foods produced an improvement in moderately severe ulcerative colitis. What happened when they added these foods back? The researchers felt the effect was so dramatic that challenging back with foods like meat, dairy, eggs, and sulfited wine was considered unethical.
That was just a pilot study, though. Researchers then set up a study in which 191 ulcerative colitis patients—in remission—were followed for a year along with their diets, to determine which foods were associated with a relapse, and they turned out to be meat and alcohol. And this makes sense because they’re both rich sources of sulfur, which may increase the concentration of hydrogen sulfide, which, if you remember, is toxic because it interferes with our body’s utilization of fiber, which our good bacteria turn into this beneficial compound called butyrate.
So, how can we increase fecal butyrate levels to counteract any hydrogen sulfide? Well, butyrate enemas have been shown to be of benefit, but if it’s formed from fiber, can’t we just get it coming in the regular way? Yes, ulcerative colitis sufferers were given oat bran for three months, making their good bacteria happy. None of them relapsed, and their symptoms appeared to be under better control.
Studies have shown that the use of various sorts of imagery and relaxation exercises can indeed improve the function of specific parts of the immune system. Resistance to disease can go up, reaction to allergens can go down, and autoimmune attack can be stopped using relaxation and specific imagery designed to reprogram the immune system. Research demonstrates consistent improvement if not remission in MS, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and other autoimmune disorders. An overactive immune system can be quieted via imagery just as an overactive nervous system can. Learning how to use their imagination is an important component for success.
