Homoeopathic treatment for proctosigmoiditis

My age is 40 years and I have been suffering from proctosigmoiditis (ulcerative) for the past seven months. Initially, my condition was mistaken for piles and I took homoeopathic treatment for about a month. After proper diagnosis of ulcerative colitis, I took allopathic treatment for about three weeks and then switched back to homoeopathy. My condition worsened with time and I had to again switch go back to allopathy.

The colonoscopy and biopsy revealed mucosal friability oedema, seropurulent exudate and ulceration from anorectum upto mid-sigmoid sections showed irregular colonic crypts depleted of mucin. Intraepithelial neutrophils were seen in many places. Lamina propria showed a dense mononuclear exudate rich in plasma cells. No granulomas. The diagnosis was active ulcerative colitis of moderate severity.

I have been taking Mesacol (5-Aminosalycyklic acid) and Librase for the past two months. My gastroenterologist has told me that the chances of a relapse are 70-80%. I am also taking ayurvedic treatment along side. Is there a permanent cure for ulcerative colitis in homoeopathy and what medication should I follow?

Dr. R.K. Manchanda responds
Ulcerative colitis (protosigmoiditis) is the inflammatory disease of colon having chronic course with acute phases.

The other precautions to control the disease include:
  ~ Avoid spicy food
  ~ Avoid onstipation — avoid junk food
  ~ Avoid excess of green fibre, as it tends to irritate the mucosa excessively
  ~ Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water everyday

Homoeopathic treatment works well in such chronic cases but a whole picture of disease with individual characteristics of the person (constitution) is required. You are advised to send a detailed history.
