What Causes Ulcerative Colitis?
Discover why you might be suffering from this particular inflammatory bowel disease
The specific cause of ulcerative colitis is unclear, but this inflammatory bowel disease seems to be hereditary and usually begins between the ages of 15 and 40. In addition, ulcerative colitis is rare in most populations that haven't adopted the typical "Western" diet that is high in refined carbohydrates and fats and low in fiber. And in some cases, ulcerative colitis has been linked to allergic reactions to certain foods. Corn, wheat, and milk products seem to be the most common culprits.
Since there is ample evidence that dietary factors may be responsible for some ulcerative colitis symptoms, my all-natural ulcerative colitis treatment plan contains detailed nutritional advice for those suffering from this particular inflammatory bowel disease.
