There are various herbs which help to treat the terminal ileitis such as bilwa, giloy, kutaj, vasaka etc.


Terminal ileitis is a type of Crohn’s disease. It is chronic inflammation of ileum. Ileitis is combination of two words – Ileum i.e. Latin word, meaning is intestine and the Greek word Itis meaning is inflammation. Collectively it is intestine inflammation which is a rare condition, marked by chronic inflammation of the 'ileum' --- the longest, narrowest and lowest (last/terminal) portion of the small intestine. This condition may involve more than one part of intestine including colon which is the main portion of intestine. Both men and women are equally at risk of developing this problem.
