Paving the way to
A healthier gut
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a group of chronic inflammatory conditions that affect the digestive tract. IBD includes Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). IBD can cause severe pain and discomfort, thus having a huge impact on daily life activities. It is a challenging disease to live with, but there are effective treatments that can help individuals manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
There are two main forms of IBD:
- Crohn’s Disease can affect any part of the digestive tract from the mouth to the anus. CD causes inflammation in the lining of the digestive tract, leading to ulcers and discomfort. The most common symptoms of Crohn’s disease include diarrhea, stomach pain, and cramping.
- Ulcerative Colitis affects the large intestine and/or rectum. Ulcerative colitis causes inflammation and ulcers in the lining of the large intestine. Typical symptoms of ulcerative colitis include diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and abdominal pain.
The symptoms of IBD vary depending on the type of disease and the severity of the inflammation. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Abdominal pain and cramping
- Bloody stools
- Fatigue and weakness
- Weight loss
- Reduced appetite
IBD is a widespread condition worldwide. According to recent estimates, there are approximately 6.8 million cases of IBD worldwide, with the number expected to increase in the coming years. The highest incidence rates of IBD are found in developed countries such as the United States, Canada, and Western Europe.
Europe has one of the highest incidence rates of IBD in the world, the prevalence of IBD is around 1 in every 400 people. According to recent studies, there are approximately 3.4 million people in Europe with IBD.
The prevalence of IBD in the Middle East is lower than that in Western countries, but it is increasing rapidly. Recent studies estimate that there are approximately 400,000 people with IBD in the Middle East.
In the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, the incidence of IBD is relatively low compared to other regions of the world. However, recent studies suggest that the incidence of IBD is increasing in these countries.
Endobiogenic medicine can be an effective treatment option for individuals with IBD. Endobiogenic medicine practitioners work to restore balance to the body’s internal environment, treating the root cause of the inflammation, rather than just the symptoms. At times, endobiogenic medicine can be the only solution for patients with IBD.
Endobiogenic Medicine uses a variety of tools to help patients manage their symptoms, including dietary changes, nutritional supplements, and stress management techniques.
Endobiogenic medicine methods for treating IBD include:
- Balancing the digestive system. Practitioners aim to restore balance to the digestive system, which can help alleviate inflammation and reduce symptoms.
- Supporting liver function. Endobiogenic medicine practitioners believe that supporting liver function can improve detoxification and reduce inflammation.
- Repairing the intestinal mucosa through the use of natural products and approaches.
- Improving gut flora. By improving the gut flora, practitioners support immune function and reduce inflammation of the digestive tract.
- Reducing stress. Practitioners use stress reduction techniques such as meditation, yoga, or breathing exercises to help patients manage their symptoms.
Overall, endobiogenic medicine can be an effective addition to traditional treatments for IBD, helping individuals manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
