is it Ulcerative Colitis Page 2 of 2
Sorry for the late reply.I hope you are still around on this form and will reply back. I have tried to answer all the questions. Please let me know if I need to be more elaborate on any of them.
* What would you like to change in your personality, if at all?
I think too much about little things and I am very intolerant of getting exploited. I feel I should learn to realize that I need to exercise some patience and let things go and not worry too much about them.
* Do you often suffer from depression? If so, do you prefer company or solitude during those times?
Not really depression but I do get pensive quite a lot. Talking it out to someone helps a lot.
* Do you get angry often? If not, do you feel the anger inside at least? What are the things / issues on which you get angry the most?
Yeah. I try to keep it to myself but it does come out in the form of frustration over other things that might bother me and I take it out on some one for other reasons. I feel out of control in almost all the things that I want be in control of ..such as health, relationships, money matters and this is what keeps me angry and disappointed
* Any grief, broken relationship, any anger/resentment against anybody, any fears, any phobias?
Broken relationship which really didn't mean much but still left an indelible impact ...has faded quite a lot but I am not sure if it is just buried inside me or has burnt into ashes. No resentment or anger against anyone in particular. Fear and insecurity of future of myself and my parents. I don't live with them and want to. They might never be able to come here to Canada for ever and also if that ever happens I do not share same principles and ideology and opinions about things. My wife on top of that might not be able to adjust...all this makes me go mad that I can't pull everything together..everyone is poles apart and this is not how it should be.
* Can you connect these complaints to any other events / accidents / operations? What was going on in your life personally, physically, emotionally, socially, environmentally when the complaints came on?
These are on going things ...not because of one incident. Just personalities that can't really align.
* Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?
I feel I try to speculate and observe things too closely. Try to find answers for my problems by trying to understand how nature works. The more I dig deeper into that and analyze things I realize this is all so not worth it and I should not be a part of this race that has no meaningful end.
* What are the things, which aggravate your suffering and which are those, which make you feel better? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing, movement, climate, music, consolation, thunderstorm, work pressure or other important events, smell, noise, light etc. Are you worse on any particular side of the body?
This is about constipation and I have had to rely on one or the other thing or tricks to keep things moving. I have tried enemas, laxatives, churnas, salt water flush along with partially healthy diet and regular exercising and running. Sometimes when I add something to me regimen it works for a while and then the response dies down. Just one apple was enough in the begining when I realized that I was having tough time eliminating and then I started running a lot and that helped and then that somewhat faded..then I had to resort to enemas ... they worked way better in the begining than they woud do now..I don't do that anymore. then tried churnas kayam ...gave me cramps but helped me eliminate ...then I sopped because I thought I might just be doing more harm by punishing myself ..tried Triphala and that was working fine until I saw some blood tripping and then I took the advice from this forum and tried Banana-dahi and isabgol combination. It worked actually and slowly the bleeding went away and loose stools were all gone. But I think that just added more weight on me ..I am not a heavy person ..I am ok at 135 pounds for my height 5'7' but I did put on a lot of fat weight rather than muscle. That is another problem ..no matter how hard I try I don't put on enough muscle. anyways ..that is not what I am so concerned about I want to fix the underlying problem first and then else everything will fall in place. I think I have liver issues...I had high bilirubin levels around 1.1 - 1.6 almost all the time when I was battling acne 5-6 years ago. As I write this now I still have acne on my shoulder, back and chest. On my chest I have big keloid scars now that I have given up the hope for to ever go away. I also notice black matter ..more like compacted pus or like black head at various locations on my skin almost anywhere on my body ...mostly on the chest part. I just press on the sides and squeeze them oout without much hassle. ..they are not infectious though and I don't even feel them. recently one grew out of one of my keloids on the chest and the keloid was extremely itchy. I did the same and squeezed it out...it is feeling better now ..but the itch is mostly there on these keloids anyways.
* Please tell me more about those food items which aggravate your digestive disorder. If possible explain it in details?
I think..any thing sweet, spicy and salty. I know then there is nothing left to eat...that is how I feel. If I eat any processed desserts ..such as ice cream, halwa, or any such thing I expect to have constipation next day...I need to eat a lot of fruits ..I am having at least 3-4 different servings of rruits everyday along with not so much loaded on actual food ...I can only eat so much and I just try to fill myself up with fiber and the do I successfully do so ..I feel I eliminate better but still not completely.
* Please tell me more about character of Stool : Acrid, (excoriating), with air bubbles, balls, beaded, bilious, bloody, burning the parts, as if burnt, chalky, changeable, chopped, clayey, coffee grounds, copious, crumbling, curdled, diarrrheic, difficult to expel, dry, dysenteric, fatty, fecal, fermented, fetid or foul, flaky, flat, fluid, foamy, focibly, expelled, frothy, frothy, glassy, like glue, granular, greasy, green scum, gritty, gushing out, hard, full of holes, hot, insufficient, involuntary, irregular, jelly-like, knotty, too large in size, lienteric (with undigested food), liquid, long, loose, lumpy, membranous, mixed, mucus, mushy, narrow in form, noisy (with wind), odorless, oily, painful, painless, pappy, pasty, like pea soup, periodic (at stated times other than each morning), pourring out, profuse, purulent (like matter), recedes (slips back), retained, retarded, like rice water, rough, like cooked sago, sandy, scaly, scanty (too little), like scrapings of intestines, sheep dung, shreddy, slender in size, slow, small in form, soap suds, soft, passes better when standing, passes better when leaning back, starchy, square, sticky, stringy, sudden in explosion, tar-like, tenacious, thin, thready, triangular, urging desire (cannot wait), watery, white, with worms.
Things keep changing almost every month ...at this time I go only once in the morning and that too I don't get a feeling that I have eliminated completely. I drink warm water before going and that is what actually helps somewhat..without that I might not be able to go at all...no matter what churna I take. About the stool itself...I release some gas and then depnding on how much fiber or fruits I have had the previous day the stool varies in firmness..it is most of the times not well formed and sometimes it is too compacted and sometimes when I have to push hard it comes out as scrapings ..this happens mostly when I have had mostly a protein heavy diet such as any meats or paneer the day before and even with may be too much wheat.I am not sure though. By the way I do drink a lot of water ..around 2-2.5 litres but I pee a lot as well and I feel my stomach or intestines do not retain this water for long enough to soak the fiber well enough to keep it mobile and that is why despite drinking so much water my stools don't slide well. No doubt my colon is slow and sluggish and has lost it's muscle power and I want regain that. I also stoop with my chest touching my knees since I use English style toilet seat and that helps with elimination.
*Color of stool: Ash colored, black, bluish, brown, changeable, dark, green, gray, liver colored, reddish, variegated, yellow, white.
Again depends on what I have had the day before ..but it mostly medium to dark brown in color.
*When do you have stool (please provide actual time)?
Afternoon, when coughing, after drinking, after eating, frequent, morning, on motion, from least movement, at night, at noon, before or during urination, after washing.
It has to be first thing in the morning after I have had my warm water .. and if I miss that train I never catch it again until next day...don't know why. Even if I feel the urge during the day I only pass gas or a few tiny scrapes ..that's it.
*What trouble before stool?
For any other trouble locate and describe minutely.
Chilliness, colic, faint feeling, fainting, flatulence (gas in bowels), passing wind, heat, pilescome down, languor, lazy, nausea, sweat, tenesmus (pressing down in rectum), thirst, trembling, urging to stool (more than natural), vertigo (dizziness), vomiting.
Nothing really Most of the times I don't even feel the pressure to release...warm water induces some urge to go..that's it.
*What trouble during stool?
For any other trouble locate and describe minutely.
Anxiety, bleeding, breathing affected, chill chilliness, coldness, colic, disagreeable sensation, fainting, faintness, flatulence (gas in bowels), passing wind, eat, piles come down, hunger, nausea, sweat, nervousness, loss of fluid from private, sleepy, straining at stool, sweat, bad taste, tenesmus (involuntary straining), thirst, urination, vertigo (dizziness), vomiting, weakness.
Passing wind before eliminating
*What trouble after stool?
Feeling of incomplete elimination
*Have you indigestion in general?
If that means gas formation all the time ..I would say No.
*Much wind in the bowels?
Not that much ..depends on if I had too much fiber or Psillium Husk powder on certain day.
*Liver or spleen trouble?
Liver I think is my problem. I can't put on muscle ..and I have had acne problem and still have. I have always had high Bilirubin levels ...I think it is all because of my liver.
*Any bad taste on mouth?
*Any skin disease?
Yes..acne, keloid scars on chest and shoulders. wierd black matter erupting not like fluid but gel always there at some random spots on the skin that can be squeezed out.
*Vertigo (or dizziness)?
*What kind of appetite?
Normal... Don't feel too hungry without any reason. Do get tempted to eat sweets but I keep it in control.
*What kind of thirst (before, during and after stool)?
After stool I feel like drinking some water and hydrate myself
By the way ..I do have trouble sleeping as well ..sometimes I just can't go to sleep. I am taking a supplement Livatone these days and since I started taking that ..my sleep has somewhat improved but still not even close to what it should be. This supplement is bascially for Liver and has silymarin to help liver. I think it helps me in general.

Thanks for your reply after a long time.
Please take 3 (three) doses of Nux Vomica 200c at night 1 hour before dinner only for 3 days (each night > 1 dose). Do not take any other remedy or herbs on the next 15 days. Do not repeat it on the next 15 days.
One dose means:
Get a 500ml bottle of distilled water from the nearest supermarket. Pour out about 250 ml of water from the bottle to leave some airspace. Insert 1 pills (If the remedy is in pills form) or Insert 1 drop (If the remedy is in liquid dilution form) of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard 10 times in a row (10 strokes of equal strength). Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succession which is done to enhance the medicinal power of the remedy.
Please take only 5 drops of the reconstituted dilution of 250 ml using a disposable dropper.
Please shake the bottle hard 10 times in a row (10 strokes of equal strength) every time before taking 5 drops from this bottle using a disposable dropper which can be used as a dose.
Report back after 15 day. I look forward to your response.
*** I humbly request you for avoiding laxatives, churnas, supplement Livatone completely in these 15 days.
1/. Nothing should enter the mouth for 1 hour prior to, or after taking the remedy.
2/. If your remedy came in pills form do not touch the pills with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water.
3/. Avoid onion, garlic, coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption.
4/. Avoid wearing perfume or exposure to anything with a strong smell on the day and 3 days following the remedy administration. This includes any and all essential oils, and incense.
5/. Avoid the consumption of excessively spicy foods.
6/. The use of medicinal herbs, either as 'teas' or supplements should be avoided during Homoeopathic treatment, as should the use of over the counter medication, unless this has been recommended by your Doctor.

You can eat everything you want. I just request you to avoid only:
1. Ayurvedic Triphala churna, laxatives, supplement Livatone. Because all of this only gives you temporary relief; you cant use it as a permanent solution.
2. Onion/garlic (non-boiled). You can eat boiled onion or garlic with normal food. Avoid too much coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption. You can drink ½ cup of tea or coffee twice daily. No problem about that.
3. Spicy foods (excessive oily food).
You can eat Isabgol banana combination. This combination is helpful for your digestive disorder. You can eat all kinds of fruits and vegetables too.

my 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 3 years ago. Symptoms are blood in her stools,little mucus,loose stools.During the day she will open her bowels 4,5 and sometimes 6. Night times 2 times for,colitis is she is taking imuran. I would really appreciate if you could advice some remedies that would put a stop. She also was diagnosed a year ago with a genetic disease called Arginaise defeciency. So she cannot take more then 20 gm of protein,or else high protein will elevate her ammonia in her blood. So she is medications.At present we are in riyadh saudi arabia,could you reccomend a homeopathic or someone working in natural medicine. Would appreciate your response,as i am very worried about her. She is on iron supplements also her haemoglobin has always been onthe low side,but improving slowly. She is a very fussy eater,and is under weight and not growing. Due to colitis i have cut out alot of things from her diet eg dairy spicy food. Thankyou

I am back for your advice after 8-10 months of subsided symptoms. I never tried the homepathy remedy that you had suggested in your last email since things had gotten better and then went away. They slowly came back in the form of constipation after a while but the worsening of the situation was so gradual that I didn't mind it and again resorted to quick fixes (different forms of laxatives such as Epsom salts and sometimes doing salt water flushes along with colon cleanses using lemonade diet for few days and such).
And now I am back to square one with same symptoms where I was a year ago. The problem is the same with blood dripping at the end of defacation. I am sure I have yeast infection along with these other gastrointestinal problems and with sugar I get very constipated. To kill candida I took probiotics for a couple of days in somewhat large quantity and which seems to have given some die-off reaction and I am feeling sick in my throat and chest and feeling of weakness. After taking digestive enzymes containing Hydrochloric Acid I felt better because I was able to release all the bloating caused by food sitting in my stomach but only after second use for the next day's meal it just threw my stomach in crash mode. I have been experiencing cramping in my left and lower abdomen. I had to go several (3-4)times last night ...wasn't diarrhea but cramping leading to bowel movement. And ofcourse the blood dripping is still there at the end of session...which seems to be from internal Hemorrhoids (No pain) but I am not sure. At this point I am not sure what is it that I can eat ..anything I think of seems like it would aggravate my symptoms ... and make my stomach more acidic causing more cramping from the irritation. I can't try the Banana, Isabgol and curd combination either because that will make my throat worse and might make me more sick.
Do you think for this situation the remedy that you suggested last year is still fine. If so please let me know an I will get on it right away this time ..no matter what.

Thanks for responding quickly.
I am in Canada. I am not sure what would the 'Bel Jam' be known as here and where to get it from. Should this be available at any Homeopathy store?
Once again ..just checking if the remedy you are prescribing is aligned with my symptoms and on the same lines as what Rahiq (Nux Vomica) had suggested a year ago.
