Home Remedies to Stop Bleeding from Ulcers

  1. The juice of fresh green grass (called Doobh in Sanskrit) - 1 tablespoonful twice daily to stop bleeding and cure ulcers.

What to Avoid in Ulcerative colitis - Avoid non-veg diet, alcohol, high proteins, yogurt (curd) and heavy greasy, fried, frozen and packaged food. Soft drinks are also not recommended, Pizza, burger, noodles which are heavy are not recommended. Spicy food is not recommended, Sour, Pungent food is not recommended.

Which food are good in ulcertive Colitis - Fresh fruits, (except sour/citrus fruits) vegetables, salads, coconut water are recommended. Wheat, grains can be consumed. Nuts can also be consumed in moderation. Milk is also fine. Cereals and pulses are to be consumed in very moderate quantity. vegetables should be preferred.

Medicines usually given in Ulcerative colitis - In modern medicines,  Salazopyrin and immunosuppresants along with Steroids are given to control the disease. These help a bit but long term side effects are there. Natural home remedies and using Ayurvedic herbs like Vatsakadi Churna, Pitta balance help to recover from the disease without causing any side effects. These supplements can be taken along with the ongoing steroids or other medicines. Slowly as the disease shows improvement, your doctor can withdraw these drugs and you can lead a normal life.

I would suggest you to watch your diet carefully and take necessary precautions to fight this disease.
