This chronic inflammatory condition is set in the background of any of the following events or tendencies:

  • Immune disorders — initiating an autoimmune reaction.
  • Intestinal parasites — Candida albicans, Mycobacterium Para tuberculosis, or other bacterial infections have been implicated.
  • General imbalance of the intestinal flora — especially from frequent antibiotic use.
  • Contraceptive pill — considerably increases the risk.
  • Intestinal permeability — often becomes worse during relapses.
  • Food sensitivities — leading to inflammation and damage to the intestinal wall.
  • Low adrenal function — related to long-term stress.
  • Vaccinations — the measles vaccine triples the risk.
  • Genetic predisposition.
  • High sugar intake in the diet — elimination of sugar results in improved symptoms in 80% of sufferers.
  • High intake of saturated fats is a risk factor.
