Subject: [Herb] Colitis
A friend of mine has bouts of eruptive colitis, sometimes , as right now, so serious that there is blood in the diaharea. At work her job is very stressful, with the bosses piling on more and more work. Does anyone have any advice of what herbs might be helpful during such an attack, and secondly what herbs might be useful for her to take to prevent such an attack?

Mallows, any and all of them; or plantago; or calendula tea; or crushed linseed in water, or ...

She needs to check her diet. The colon is not divorced from her stomach... she's severely allergic to something in her food, have her get rid of that.

Demulcent herbs as others have said are really important.. Changing diet also.. However one of the best remedies out there for ucerative colitis is canadian fleabane (Conyza canadensis).. However make sure it is in a program with supportive constitutional Tonics and lifestyle changes or it and other remedies will wear out and make things much more difficult.
