Tackling Ulcerative Colitis with Herbs

Similar to Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis may be caused by constitutional deficiencies, invasion of the exterior pathogenic factors or an unbalanced diet. Constitutional deficiencies usually refer to spleen, stomach and kidney deficiencies. Invasion of exterior pathogenic factors refers to damp-heat or damp-cold. Lastly, an unbalanced diet high in raw or cold can injure the spleen and stomach by obstructing their functions in transforming and transporting food and nutrients.
