In conventional western medicines, no one knows what causes ulcerative colitis. The most likely theory is that it is caused by several factors ranging from genetics, faulty immune system reactions, and environmental influences, and over-consumption of saturated fat and/or processed foods. Most prominent risk factors for ulcerative colitis include:
Family history of the disease
Jewish heritage, especially Ashkenazi (European) Jews
A diet high in sugar, cholesterol, and fat (particularly from meat and dairy products)
Psoriasis. Studies show that psoriasis is associated both with Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis.
As in any other imbalances in the body, we believe the root cause of Fibromyalgia can be found in one of the following areas:
Immunological challenges (virus, bacteria, yeast, or parasites)
Food issues (too much of sugar, wheat, eggs, meat, dairies, etc.)
In my clinical experiences, metal toxicity, especially mercury poisoning on the nervous system, makes the top of the list when it comes to treating Fibromyalgia.
Typically, it takes six months to a year to experience tangible, long-lasting effects. In most cases, we strongly recommend diet and life-style changes for Fibromyalgia patients.
Some key nutrients in fighting Fibromyalgia include:
Found in whole grains, beans, nuts, chicken, fish and eggs; B complex vitamins directly influence the nervous system’s proper functioning and combat nerve problems such as tingling and tenderness.
Found in nuts, grains, beans, fish, meat and dark green vegetables magnesium is needed for muscle flexibility and bone, protein and fatty acid formation. Magnesium is also integral in making new cells, relaxing muscles, clotting blood, aiding in calcium absorption and activating B vitamins.
Directly affecting cellular function, this fatty acid found in fish minimizes nerve sensitivity and improves cognition.
Helps combat stress, builds the immune system and reduces swelling. Vitamin C is found in a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables including citrus fruits, green vegetables, tomatoes and berries.
Increases circulation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body and helps to eliminate waste.
