Bloating & Indigestion

Abdominal bloating is when the abdomen feels full and tight. It is usually caused by trapped intestinal gas, indigestion and less often due to water retention. Abdominal bloating is also one of the most common and early symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), irregularity and other digestive dysfunctions. The most common causes of bloating are:
  • Overeating
  • Irregularity
  • Indigestion
  • Lactose intolerance and other food intolerances
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Partial bowel obstruction
  • Constipation
  • Rotting fecal matters in the gut producing gas

Solution

The best way reduce bloating and indigestion is to promote healthier digestive function. You can promote a healthier digestive system by detoxifying and cleansing the digestive system to restore healthy daily regular bowel movement. With regular bowel movement, food will move through the system and not sit and rot to cause bloating.

Avoid overeating, carbonated water, soft drinks, alcohol, diary products and foods which can cause you to feel bloated. When eating, don’t rush, chew your food slowly and thoroughly to help with digestion and absorption. Eat a lot more complex carbohydrates like green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits. Slightly cooked, green leafy vegetables and other complex carbohydrates should make up most of your meal, lean meat and fish should make up about 20 to 30 percent of your meal. Fatty meat should not make up the bulk of your meal. Avoid or at least minimize refined foods, deep fried food, food containing high level of animal fats, sugar, salt and artificial ingredients. Drink water, tea, coffee and avoid soft drinks and alcohol. Eat on time and eat at the same time for every meal everyday. Avoid overeating and go for a walk after meal to help with the movement of the food downwards.

After dinner or before bed, relax with a soothing cup of DR-HO’S® Sereni-TeaTM. It contains natural herbal ingredients such as chamomile to relax the body and mind for a more peaceful sleep. Relaxation is important for a healthy digestive system. Fennel is an important ingredient in helping to relieve bloating from excessive intestinal gas. This natural herbal remedy is a key ingredient in both DR-HO’S® Sereni-TeaTM and DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser.

Try these healthy eating and lifestyle habits along with better food selections to take care of your bloating, indigestion and other functional digestive problems. Do not rely on chemical means only to control your bloating and indigestion; it’s not a healthy long term solution.

Note: Fennel is an important ingredient in helping to relieve bloating from excessive intestinal gas. This natural herbal remedy can be used safely on a daily basis and is a key ingredient in both DR-HO’S® Sereni-TeaTM and DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser. Stay clear of any carbonated drinks and drinks with high sugar content. Try having a hot cup of DR-HO’S® Sereni-TeaTM, it will help with digesting your meal and promote healthy daily regular bowel movement to eliminate rotting gaseous fecal matters.

Constipation & Irregularity

If you are having less than one healthy, soft, well formed, easy bowel movement a day, you have irregularity. If you have fewer than 3 bowel movements per week, you are suffering with more severe constipation. If you have less than one bowel movement a week, your severe constipation is a serious health threat that needs immediate attention. Constipated stools usually appear hard, dry, small in size and also difficult to eliminate. Constipation and irregularity means old fecal matter cannot be eliminated from your digestive system. The old poop is rotting in your gut, producing toxins and gas, causing abdominal cramps, bloating and low energy. The digestive system is not digesting, absorbing or eliminating properly.

Hard, small, dry stools are hard to eliminate and the straining can cause engorgement of the venous plexus at the anus to form hemorrhoids. Rupture of these hemorrhoids by hard stools cause pain and the formation of bloody stools. Constipation can also cause over stretching of the colon, causing cracking and inflammation of the intestinal wall. Chronic constipation can cause polyps and diverticulitis to form. Over time, the deteriorating condition can cause serious bowel disease.

Constipation and irregularity is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints in the USA, affecting millions of people. Constipation and irregularity is a functional problem that is mainly related to poor diets and unhealthy lifestyle. More importantly, almost all constipation and irregularity cases can be helped by using DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system in conjunction with a healthy diet and some minor lifestyle changes. Other factors that may contribute to constipation and irregularity are:

  • Not eating enough green leafy vegetables
  • Not eating enough fresh fruits
  • Not drinking enough pure water
  • Not enough fibers in diet
  • Medication side effects
  • Starvation weight loss diets
  • Consuming too much refined and processed food
  • Rushing, not taking time to have a bowel movement when nature calls
  • Food intolerances
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Sedentary lifestyle/lack of physical activity
  • Problems with intestinal function
  • Changes in your daily life such as travel, aging or pregnancy
  • Frequent use of laxatives

Solution

The best way to eliminate constipation and irregularity is to promote healthier digestive function. You can promote a healthier digestive system by detoxifying and cleansing the digestive system to restore healthy daily regular bowel movements. If you suffer with constipation, start using DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system as soon as possible. Constipation is much more than just being uncomfortable, it is very bad for your health. The good news is that constipation and irregularity is usually temporary and not serious if corrected in time. In conjunction with using the DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system, eating a sensible diet and living a healthy lifestyle are important for long-term care. These changes are similar for taking care of other digestive dysfunctions.

Constipation and Irregularity sufferers should avoid the following:
Avoid or at least minimize deep fried food, junk food, refined food, processed food, food containing saturated animal fat, artificial ingredients, food coloring and flavors, excessive red meat and junk food.

Constipation and Irregularity sufferers should consume more of the following in their daily diet:
Eat a lot of slightly cooked, green leafy vegetables - this is the key to getting better; have 2 to 3 large servings every day. 6 to 8 glasses of room temperature water, hot tea or coffee is fine, hot soup, wholesome rice, pasta, fresh fruits, lean meat, fish, legumes and a variety of other vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, celery, etc.

Tip: Try to have a bowel movement shortly after a meal at the same time everyday. About 10 to 15 minutes after you’ve eaten, try to have a bowel movement even if you don’t have the urge to go. This routine can help to train your digestive tract to move more regularly over time. Be patient, after several weeks of this "toilet training" routine, your system will respond like it should after a meal.

DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system contains 3 special all natural formulas that work together to promote optimal digestive health:

1. DR-HO'S® Digestive Detoxifier: Helps promote a healthy flora balance for optimal digestive health.

2. DR-HO'S® Digestive Cleanser: Helps remove built-up waste via regular, well-formed, easy bowel movements.

3. DR-HO'S® Sereni-TeaTM: Helps relax your mind and body. Relaxation is important for digestive healthy. People have also reported better overall energy levels and a peaceful sleep.

Using DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM in conjunction with the above dietary guidelines is easy, safe and highly effective, please give it a try.

Note: If you suffer from irregularity you will do well by adding a higher intake of fiber to your diet. DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser is a rich source of dietary fiber and includes ingredients such as rhubarb root and peppermint leaf which will help increase the production of bile and aid in the digestion process helping to relieve constipation. It will help add the extra fiber that your diet requires. Try to stay away from laxatives; all they do is relax the muscles in your digestive organs and your body may become dependent on them.

Cramping

Cramping is a type of abdominal pain like a "stomach ache" which we have all had at one time or another. For some of us this feeling comes and goes, but for others it can be a regular experience. Severe cramping can be disabling. Even mild cramping can be fairly uncomfortable and disturbing. Cramping, usually caused by constipation and/or diarrhea, can be relieved by passing gas or having a bowel movement. Some other causes may include:

  • Excessive gas
  • Chronic constipation
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Bowel obstruction

Solution

The best way to reduce cramping is to promote healthier digestive function. You can promote a healthier digestive system by detoxifying and cleansing the digestive system to restore healthy daily regular bowel movements. Fennel is an important ingredient in helping to relieve bloating or even gas. This safe herbal supplement can be used on a daily basis and is a key ingredient in DR-HO’S® Sereni-Tea and DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser. DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser is a rich source of dietary fiber and includes ingredients such as rhubarb root and peppermint leaf which will increase the production of bile and aid in the digestion process helping to relieve constipation. Avoid soft drinks and any other carbonated drinks, instead have a hot cup of our Sereni-Tea after meals to assist digestion and promote relaxation. An interesting note is that some women have also reported less cramping during their menstrual cycles by doing a regular digestive cleanse.

Lowered Overall Energy

Common known causes of low energy are:
  • Poor unhealthy diets.
  • Not enough sleep.
  • Lack of regular exercise.
  • Physical ailments.
  • Irregular Bowel Movements.

Solution

To improve your daily energy you should:
  • Select only healthy foods and drinks all the time.
  • Go to bed early, sleep well and get up early.
  • Increase your physical activities throughout the day, and implement a time for daily exercise as well.
  • Consult with your doctor and obtain a physical to rule out any ailment.
  • Use DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system regularly to cleanse your bowel of old waste and promote healthy daily bowel movement. A clean healthy digestive system can digest the food and better absorb water, nutrients, vitamin and minerals. Greater absorption of nutrients can lead to greater energy levels.
Medical Disclaimer: Always consult and obtain consent from your doctor first before making any changes to your diet or starting any exercise program.

Increased Weight Gain

There are 3 basic non-medical causes of weight gain:
  • A diet high in fat, meat, fast food, refined foods, condensed food, junk food, deep fried food, food with high concentration of sugar can all contribute to intake of high calories
  • Inadequate amount of physical activity to burn off the daily intake of excess calories.
  • Irregularity causing old fecal matter to stay in your gut, contributing to your overall weight.

  • Due to high caloric foods in diet, increased weight gain and obesity has become a problem in North America and other developed countries. Obesity is a modern day disease. Poor digestive cycles along with irregular bowel movements are contributing factors to increased weight gain. In normal physiology, the digestive system empties itself by having a regular bowel movement after each meal. If you are not having a regular bowel movement after each meal, old fecal matter is contributing to your overall weight gain. With irregularity, fecal matter stays in the intestinal tract and continues to backup the digestive system until a bowel movement occurs. In fact, the body can hold up to 10lbs of fecal matter at a time! The longer this fecal matter remains in the intestinal tract, the more likely it will leave a sticky plaque like substance on the walls of the intestinal tract. As more plaque is added, it becomes harder and more difficult to have normal bowel movements.

    Aside: Irregular bowel movements can also cause other unfavorable conditions in the gut. Built up fecal matter allows parasites a chance to lay eggs in the digestive system. These parasites or worms have the ability to absorb the nutrients from the food we eat, and to grow larger in size. Tapeworms in particular, can grow several feet in length! The scariest thing is that some of these parasites have the ability to lay up to one million eggs per day. Rotting fecal matter in the gut is a favorable place for parasites to grow and to multiply.

Solution

You can lose weight and manage your weight going forward by:
  • Selecting to consume only healthy foods and drinks all the time.
  • Increase your physical activities throughout the day which ever way you can and also implement a time for more intense daily exercise.
  • Lose the weight of built-up fecal matter by detoxifying and cleansing your digestive tract with systems such as DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM.
Medical Disclaimer: Always consult and obtain consent from your doctor first before making any changes to your diet or starting any exercise program.

Gas

Everyone has gas. We eliminate gas by belching or passing it through the rectum. It is normal for the average person to pass gas numerous times a day and less than 1% of it smells. Usually belching is caused by swallowing air, chewing gum, or by consuming carbonated drinks such as coke. However, flatulence which is passed through the rectum is caused by enzymes in the large intestines that breakdown our food. These enzymes expel small amounts of sulfur. Although having gas is fairly commonplace, it can be discomforting for those who have excessive gas. Excessive passing of gas that is awfully smelly is a sign of unhealthy digestive system.

Solution

The best way to reduce the formation and excessive passing of gas is to promote healthier digestive function. You can promote a healthier digestive system by detoxifying and cleansing the digestive system to restore healthy daily regular bowel movements. Having regular bowel movements to remove old waste on a daily basis is the key to preventing formation of gas by rotting fecal matter stuck in your gut. Passing gas is normal and you’re not going to eliminate all gas in your system. DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system significantly helps reduce the amount of gas you experience on a daily basis; more importantly, the gas from a clean healthy digestive system will have a lot less foul odor.

Heartburn/Indigestion

Heartburn is chest pain due to irritation of the esophageal lining by stomach acid reflux. With healthy digestive function, food moves in one direction only, it enters from the esophagus to the stomach. In the case of heartburn, the content of the stomach goes in the reverse direction, it moves from the stomach up to the esophagus. Since the stomach content is very acidic, it burns the lining of the esophagus causing pain. The reverse flow of the stomach content is due to unhealthy digestive tract and indigestion. Without daily regular bowel movements, the congested fecal matter causes back up of the system and stomach acid reflux. Stress, overeating, caffeine, alcohol, strong spices are also aggravating factors.

Solution

While it is important to avoid food and drinks that are hard for you to digest and can irritate the heartburn, the best way to look after heartburn and indigestion is to promote healthier digestive function. You can promote a healthier digestive system by detoxifying and cleansing the digestive system to restore healthy daily regular bowel movements. With regular bowel movements, food will move in the right direction and heartburn can be eliminated.

When eating, don’t rush, chew your food slowly and thoroughly to help with digestion and absorption. Eat more complex carbohydrates like green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits. Slightly cooked, green leafy vegetables and other complex carbohydrates should make up most of your meal, lean meat and fish should make up about 20 to 30 percent of your meal. Fatty meat should not make up most of your meal. Avoid or at least minimize refined foods, deep fried food, food containing high level of animal fats, sugar, salt and artificial ingredients. Drink water, tea, coffee and avoid soft drinks and alcohol. Eat on time and eat at the same time for every meal everyday. Avoid overeating and go for a walk after meals to help with the movement of the food through the digestive system.

After dinner or before bed, relax with a soothing cup of DR-HO’S® Sereni-TeaTM. It contains natural herbal ingredients such as chamomile to relax the body and mind for a more peaceful sleep. Relaxation is important for a healthy digestive system.

Try these healthy eating and lifestyle habits along with better food selections to take care of your heartburn and other functional digestive problems. Do not rely on chemical means only to control your heartburn; it’s not a healthy long term solution.

Candida Overgrowth / Yeast Infection

Digestive DetoxTM contains prebiotics to reduce candidiasis bacteria, yeast overgrowth, yeast infections, stimulates growth of good bacteria. Candida albicans or candidiasis is a type of yeast that lives in our gastrointestinal tract and can become problematic if it overgrows. A reasonable amount of this candida yeast exists within all of us without causing any problems. It is usually kept in-check by other healthy bacteria in our systems. Although, candida has existed for many years there is still uncertainty, from medical professionals, as to how to diagnose it. Right now, however, there seems to be a consensus that the number one cause of candida is from the over use of broad spectrum antibiotics and birth control pills. Antibiotics not only kill the bad bacteria in our body, but the good bacteria as well. Since there is no bacterium to combat the growth of this yeast (candida albicans) it is able to grow and can spread to various systems of our body.

Note: Overgrowth of intestinal Candida can also occur if the digestive system cannot eliminate waste matter on a daily basis. Rotting waste in the gut provide a favorable environment for yeast to grow and multiply. With Candida overgrowth, it is very important to use DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system to stimulate regular bowel movements to eliminate old waste matter in the gut and to promote healthy digestive function. A clean intestine and colon is not a favorable place for yeast to grow.

Symptoms of Candida Overgrowth Include:

  • Bloating, cramps and excess gas
  • Diarrhea and constipation (this may be alternating)
  • Multiple allergies or allergies to all foods
  • Migraines
  • Muscle aches
  • Itchy anus
If candida spreads to the rest of the body it can cause:
  • Thrush (a yeast infection which develops in the mouth and throat and on the tongue)
  • Cystitis (infection of the bladder or lower urinary system)
  • PMS (premenstrual syndrome)
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Joint pains
  • Asthma
  • Hayfever
  • Sinusitis (cold or allergy like symptoms)
  • Fungal infections of the nail/skin e.g. athletes foot
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Ear infections
  • Chronic tiredness
  • Allergies
  • Sensitivity to perfume, tobacco smoke and petrol
The following is a list of factors that are known to contribute to the increase of candida:
  • Use of contraceptive pill or HRT (hormone replacement therapy)
  • Use of natural progesterone cream
  • Use of other steroids (hydrocortisone, prednisolone etc.)
  • Use of immuno-suppressive drugs
  • Repeated use of broad-spectrum antibiotics e.g. for acne
  • Dental mercury amalgam poisoning
  • Other heavy metal poisoning e.g. lead, cadmium
  • Chemical poisoning from the home, garden, workplace etc.
  • High sugar diet
  • Stress

Solution

To stop the growth and to reduce candida, you need to detoxify and cleanse your digestive tract. You will also need to stimulate the growth of intestinal flora by increasing the good bacteria in your system. You will also need to cut out sugar, refined carbohydrates, processed foods and food with yeast and alcohol.

Candida feeds off sugar and yeast; therefore, you need to eliminate sugar, bread with yeast, alcohol and refined food from your diet. You should avoid artificial ingredients since their effects on health are largely unknown. Start eating 2 to 3 large servings of fresh fruit and vegetables daily and avoid fast food. Dietary supplements such as DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser will help improve your digestive system and promote a balanced intestinal flora. The fibersol-2 in DR-HO’S® Digestive Cleanser helps to promote growth of probiotic bacteria. Having healthy, well formed, daily regular bowel movements is the key to promote proper digestive function and overall health.

Intestinal Worms & Parasites

There are hundreds of different parasites that live in our environment. They populate our digestive system and are usually spread as a result of poor hygiene, contact with animals and from poorly cooked or unwashed food. They are slightly larger than bacteria and viruses but we cannot see them with our naked eyes. Parasites which invade and live in our intestinal tract are the most harmful to us. Some of these parasites have the potential to lay up to millions of eggs a day. For people with irregular bowel movements, these parasites are not being eliminated in a timely fashion. Once they are in our digestive system, these parasites live by feeding off the nutrients from the food we eat; this can contributes to the host’s lowered energy. Tapeworms in particular, may grow up to 18ft (6m)! Parasites/worms can also make it difficult to have regular bowel movements and they can also cause cramping, bloating, gas and diarrhea. More severe parasite infections may cause unhealthy weight loss, fever, nausea, vomiting and even bloody stools.

Solution

The key to ridding your digestive system of any foreign parasites is by having 2-3 regular bowel movements per day. Regular bowel movements reduce the chances of parasites living in our intestinal tract long enough to lay eggs. Also, it is highly recommended to wash fruits, vegetables and even meat before preparing a meal.

Use DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTMsystem helps promote regular bowel movements. Daily, regular bowel movements help remove and eliminate parasites living in the digestive tract, thus reducing the chances of the parasites laying eggs and proliferating. Detoxifying and cleansing your system is important for regularity and optimal digestive health.

Diverticular Disorders

Diverticulosis and the more serious diverticulitis are two of the main types of diverticular disorders. This disease occurs when small pouches in the colon or large intestine bulge outwards through these areas as a result of a weak lining. When this happens people are more prone to infections as there is a buildup of fecal matter within this pouch. A low fiber diet, although not yet proven, is believed to be the main reason for diverticular disorders. Diets that are low in fiber also make it harder to pass stools and straining during bowel movements may cause further irritation.

This is especially more common in industrialized countries such as United States, Canada, England and Australia and frequently occurs in more than half the population of those who are 55 and older. This is due to the fact that most diets in industrialized countries are low in fiber, highly processed, high in meat content, saturated with fats and contains environmental toxins. Fiber is the main component of vegetables, fruits and whole grains that our body cannot digest. The undigested fiber act as a bulking agent passes through our system to scrub and absorb waste and toxin to eliminate during a bowel movement. Consuming an adequate amount of fiber daily is essential for intestinal health.

Solution

DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTMsystem helps to sooth irritation caused by diverticular disorders by providing generous amounts of fiber. Fiber acts as a bulking agent that scrubs the internal lining of the digestive tractacts as a gentle scrub to reduce symptoms of diverticulitis.

Unfortunately there is no cure for diverticular disorders. Reducing the amount of meat while consuming more green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, water and wholesome grains in your daily diet may reduce infections due to diverticular disorders. Consuming 6-8 glasses of water per day will also help to loosen the stool in your intestinal tract so that it can be eliminated more easily. Using DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system in conjunction with a healthy diet will promotes intestinal and colon health, resulting in a cleaner, healthier digestive system and overall better health. DR-HO’S® system can also help the body eliminate environmental toxins and promotes a healthy flora balance for optimal digestive health.

Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is a serious bowel disease. It has the highest occurrence in developed nations such as the United States and Canada. The lowest rate of occurrence occurs in developing nations in Asia. Although the exact reason is not known, colorectal cancer is much lower in Asia and may partly be related to the vast amount of complex carbohydrates such as green leafy vegetables and wholesome fruits in the Asian diet. In the United States, diets consist of mainly meat dishes and processed foods which are difficult for the body to digest and hard to eliminate. People who consume more complex carbohydrates such as green leafy vegetables and wholesome fruits have healthier, regular bowel movements, while people who consume mostly processed foods tend to suffer more with constipation and bowel irregularity.

As stated by the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer found in both men and women in the United States. It is estimated that there will be about 148,000 cases of colorectal cancer in 2006 which will result in about 55,000 deaths. While the exact cause for colorectal is unknown there are some risk factors which are associated with it:

Age: More than 9 out of 10 people found to have colorectal cancer are older than 50.

History of colorectal cancer: Even though the cancer was completely removed previously, it could start in other areas of the colon or rectum.

History of polyps: Some types of polyps increase the risk of colorectal cancer especially if you have had a close relative who’s been diagnosed previously.

History of bowel disease: Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease increase the risk of colorectal cancer. These diseases cause inflammation of the colon. If you have either of these you should be tested on a regular basis.

Diet: A diet which is high in fat can increase the chances of colorectal cancer

Lack of exercise: Those who are not active or live a sedentary lifestyle have a higher risk of colorectal cancer.

Overweight: Those who are excessively overweight have an increased chance of colorectal cancer.

Smoking: Smokers are 30%-40% more likely to die from colorectal cancer. Smoking also increases the risk of other types of cancer as well.

Alcohol: Considerable use of alcohol has also been associated with colorectal cancer. *Risk factors courtesy of American Cancer Society

Reduce the risk: It is highly recommended to have a colonoscopy examination as part of your routine physical examination in order to detect bowel disease in its early state.

Medical Disclaimer: If you suffer with a bowel disease such as colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or any other disease of the digestive system, you must consult with your doctor first before using any DR-HO’S® products or make any changes to your diet.

Prevention is Key

Although the cause of colorectal cancer is unknown, you may help to prevent it by controlling some of your risk factors. First maintain a healthy diet by consuming more wholesome fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, non leafy fresh vegetables, whole grain foods for a good source of fiber, unprocessed food and 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. Second, reduce or eliminate your intake of high fat foods, meat, processed food, refined food, deep fried foods, soft drinks, artificial chemicals and junk food. Also, try to maintain an active lifestyle by walking, jogging or even light workouts on a daily basis. It has also been suggested that consuming a daily multi-vitamin such as DR-HO’S® EssentialTM may help provide a foundation of essential nutrients as well as anti-oxidants to help combat disease forming free radicals.

The use of DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system is important; it can help to detoxify and cleanse your colon to stimulate regular bowel movements and promote digestive and overall health. Irregularity causes old fecal matter to rot in your colon, forming gas and toxins that irritate the intestinal lining. Constipation can cause over stretching of the intestinal wall which can then crack and become more prone to irritation and inflammation. Polyps and diverticulitis can form within the digestive tract with chronic constipation and irregularity. It is essential to have daily regular bowel movements for good health. With our modern lifestyle, it is very important for everyone to regularly detoxify and cleanse their digestive system in conjunction with a healthy diet and lifestyle to promote a healthy digestive system.

Ulcerative Colitis

Colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which causes inflammation in the large intestine and colon. Unfortunately because of its similar nature to other bowel disorders it can be difficult to diagnose. Those who suffer from colitis may experience abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, joint pain, loss of appetite and bodily fluids and anemia. It is important to note that the American Cancer Society recommends that anyone suffering from ulcerative colitis should be tested for colorectal cancer on a regular basis as they may be more prone.

Solution

Unfortunately, there is no medication to cure ulcerative colitis but there are medications that will assist in reducing the severity of symptoms.

Only after the consultation and consent from your doctor, may DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system be used to support a more balanced digestive function.

Medical Disclaimer: If you suffer from a bowel disease such as colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or any other disease of the digestive system, you must consult with your doctor first before using DR-HO’S® products or make any changes to your diet.

Crohn's Disease

Crohn’s disease is a form of an inflammatory bowel disease. Due to the similar symptoms of IBD, such as ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome, it may be difficult to diagnose Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease causes inflammation in many different areas of the gastrointestinal tract but it most commonly appears to affect the lower part of the small intestine. The swelling caused by Crohn’s disease can cause pain and also increase the frequency of passing digested matter which results in diarrhea. The most common symptoms are abdominal pain, diarrhea, arthritis, weight loss, rectal bleeding and skin problems.

There is no known cause of Crohn’s disease. The most popular belief for the cause of Crohn’s disease is an abnormal activation of the immune system. Usually the immune system is activated when the body is exposed to any harmful and foreign viruses and bacteria. However, in those whom suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, the immune system is abnormally activated even without the presence of a foreign virus or bacteria. This abnormal activation of the immune system results in a constant inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract which causes ulcers as well. It is also believed that Crohn’s disease or even the abnormal activation of the immune system may be hereditary and those who suffer from Crohn’s disease usually have a close relative (such as parent or sibling) who has been affected by some form of inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn’s disease occurs throughout all age groups but seems to be more commonly diagnosed in those aged between 20 and 30 years of age. It is important to note that the American Cancer Society recommends that anyone suffering from Crohn’s disease should be tested for colorectal cancer on a regular basis as they may be more prone.

Solution

Unfortunately, there is no medication to cure Crohn’s disease but there are medications that will assist in reducing the severity of symptoms.

Only after the consultation and consent from your doctor, may DR-HO’S® Digestive DetoxTM system be used to support a more balance digestive function.

Medical Disclaimer: If you suffer with a bowel disease such as colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or any other disease of the digestive system, you must consult with your doctor first before using DR-HO’S® products or make any changes to your diet.
