Problem: do you suffer from ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s?
Although there is no known cause of ulcerative colitis, there is little doubt that stress exacerbates the symptoms, so if we can manage our stress, we will be in much better shape to cope.
Being an autoimmune disorder, it is also much more helpful if our immune system can be brought back into balance rather than having to be suppressed with medication. As a natural treatment for ulcerative colitis, Vedic meditation is an ideal option.
A healthier immune system doesn’t have to mean more autoimmune challenges. Quite the opposite, in fact. It means that the flaws creating the overactive response begin to diminish so that the body’s natural defence systems can start to respond more appropriately.
How can Vedic meditation help with treating ulcerative colitis?
The healing qualities of the greater blood flow and biochemical balance brought about by Vedic meditation mean that, in theory, we can bring every aspect of this disorder into greater balance.
The practice of Vedic meditation has also been clinically shown to reduce incidence and perception of pain by a considerable amount, making it a popular and effective form of treatment for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s.
In practice, we have found there to be some pretty remarkable results.
One of our earliest students came to us having been diagnosed with a chronic case indicated by a faecal calprotectin (inflammatory marker) score of 2576. The norm for someone in her age range should be 51. Her doctors told her that a condition this acute would require medications for life.
A year on and, having learned meditation in that time, her inflammatory levels gave a reading of 97 and falling. She is now off the medication and her rather surprised specialist has informed her she is unlikely to experience any further trouble. The lady in question hasn’t made any lifestyle changes beyond those taken long before she came to us and she is convinced the meditation did it.
