Inflammation of the intestine

Manifestations of inflammation of the intestine may vary. Constant abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, and constipation are illnesses that are very common and familiar to almost everyone. Those who experience these symptoms do not always find it necessary to go to the doctor.


However, there is a high chance that these symptoms directly indicate inflammation of the intestine. Besides, various types of inflammations occur in different parts of the gut. Moreover, the causes of each originate from the same cycle of pathological processes within the intestinal mucosa. These lead to the previously mentioned symptoms and reduce the functionality of the digestive system.

That is to say, intestinal inflammations have several causes. Increased knowledge of the etiological nature of the illness can offer better strategies to treat it, though it is more effective to get rid of its origins in the first place.

What are the factors and therapy of intestinal inflammation?

Inflammation of the intestine can cause the following symptoms:

  • Bacterial infections (viral as well),
  • Create conditions for the development of multicellular parasites (helminths),
  • Excessive use of drugs (antibiotics),
  • Autoimmune diseases (Crohn’s disease),
  • Long-term dietary violations,
  • Vulnerability to toxins and radiation,
  • Circulatory disturbances,
  • Digestive disorders,
  • Accumulation of excess weight,
  • Emotional stress,
  • Hypothyroidism,
  • Additional inflammations of the bladder and prostate.



Some inflammatory processes, like nonspecific ulcerative colitis, still have unclear aetiology. Genetic and hereditary factors can affect the chances of developing intestinal inflammations. However, they are unlikely to be determinant, and it occurs at the same rate for both women and men.

Inflammation of the intestine depends on their type. Treatments for chronic inflammations involve holistic methods and herbal medicines that have potent anti-inflammatory effects — for example, oak bark tea, chamomile tea, St. John’s wort.
