0:15 Remedies for an inflamed colon

Today we’re going to talk about a few things you can do to help improve an inflamed colon. Whether you have some type of irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, or celiac, these remedies may be beneficial.

9 things to focus on to help heal an inflamed colon:

1. Avoid gluten and grains
Gluten can tear up the inside part of the lining of the colon.

2. Avoid dairy
You could have an allergy to casein that creates inflammation.

3. Limit vegetables
You could have an altered microbiome, which means that your microbes are going to be easily overwhelmed by the fiber in vegetables. This can create a lot of bloating. You may want to do carnivore for a little while if you can digest protein. It’s also important to avoid vegetable oils.

4. Don’t consume alcohol and don’t smoke
Smoking depletes you of certain nutrients. You can get more inflammation.

5. Chlorophyll
If you’re not consuming vegetables to get chlorophyll, wheatgrass juice powder can be a good source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll can be very healing to the inside of the colon.

6. Intestines with stomach (as a supplement)
You may have some type of autoantibodies, and this product could be very beneficial and give you a lot of relief.

7. Take purified bile salts
If there is some type of inflammation in the colon, you could also have a problem recycling bile salts. This could cause you to become deficient in bile. Bile salts can help keep the junctions of the colon tight, regulate the balance of microbes in the gut, and help keep things flowing through the liver, gallbladder, and intestines.

8. Do fasting
Do intermittent fasting to some degree and even periodic prolonged fasting. Fasting is one of the best things to stimulate stem cells in the colon to help heal the lining of the intestines.

9. Take a good probiotic
This could help repopulate the microbes that you have in your colon.

  14. Elizabeth Plane

    I’ve followed these suggestions for three weeks. It wasn’t hard to do and most all of the colon swelling has gone down and the colon pain has 99% subsided. Obviously I’m not abandoning the regime yet, if ever. Thanks a million.

    Then what CAN you eat? besides carnivore?

    In order to sanitise oil, in particular cheap olive oil, you may "wash" it short before usage. Shake water and oil by hand and throw the water. It takes away some of the acid. Better yet, use clarified butter.

    Doctor Eric Berg how do you fixed an inflamed stomach I’ve been doing 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and 14 ounces of water with lemon juice. I’ve been having intense stomach pain had a scope procedure this morning and my stomach is inflamed my esophagus to my stomach is inflamed and my stomach to my small intestines is inflamed. I’ve been having issues with my stomach since 2016 I’ve been doing the cabbage juice. And once I think it’s fixed then I go back to doing the Apple cider vinegar but could there be other issues I’m on a keto diet. Age 56 I have been fasting some.
