Crohn’s disease is a serious ailment and should never be treated with herbal remedies alone. However, the use of herbal medicine to relieve many of the symptoms of Crohn’s disease can be taken into consideration as supplementation to conventional medical treatment.
Natural herbs can help restore the health of the colon, small intestines and large intestines of patients with Crohn’s disease. They can be used to reduce inflammation, stop internal bleeding, help with bowel movement and alleviate pain. Moreover, medicinal herbs can help prevent microbial infections in other organ systems caused by fistulas and wounds in the gastrointestinal tract.
When using medicinal herbs as a treatment for Crohn’s disease caution should be taken to ensure that they are safe. Many herbs can trigger some side effects or show contraindication with other medication so it is vital to consult a physician or other professional health care provider before using herbs to treat Crohn’s disease.
