This chronic inflammatory disease of the colon and the rectal lining is set in the background of any of the following events or tendencies:

  1. Immune disorders — initiating an autoimmune reaction.
  2. Intestinal parasites — two bacteria have been linked being Campylobacter intestanalis and Escherichia coli. The screening test for gut microbes is called a CDSA.
  3. General imbalance of the intestinal flora — especially if antibiotics have been used frequently.
  4. Food sensitivities — leading to inflammation and damage. Wheat and milk are the most frequent offenders. I recommend screening be the IgG blood test to identify your specific triggers.
  5. Elevated Homocysteine levels.
  6. A diet high in simple sugars.
  7. Times of high stress may exacerbate your condition.
