Ulcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC)is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative colitis is a form of colitis, a disease of the intestine, specifically the large intestine or colon, that includes characteristic ulcers, or open sores, in the colon.

The main symptom of active disease is usually diarrhoea mixed with blood and pus, of gradual onset. Although ulcerative colitis has no known cause, there is a presumed genetic component to susceptibility. The disease may be triggered in a susceptible person by environmental factors. Although dietary modification may reduce the discomfort of a person with the disease, ulcerative colitis is not thought to be caused by dietary factors.

G.K., aged 31/F, came to me on 23.10.07 for the treatment of ulcerative colitis. She said that she had pain in abdomen with a desire for stool. She had this desire several times a day. There was thick pus and blood in the stool.

She had the report of colonoscopy that declared her to be suffering from ulcerative colitis (Idiopathic). Biopsy report showed ulcers (Relatively active ulcerative colitis stages).

The problem started when she gave birth to a child about three years ago. She was treated by many doctors including the renowned doctors of gastroenterology but she did not get any relief. Whenever she took medicine, she got temporary relief. On stopping the intake of medicine, the problem reoccurred. She wanted to leave allopathy as she was fed up of taking strong medicines.

The second problem that she had was of migraine which used to occur after every few days.

I asked her about her nature. She said, “I don’t get angry as such but when children disturb me only then I get angry. I seldom scold my children. I do not use harsh words for them. Anger is only for 1-2 minutes.” Her tone was soft and there was no smile on her face.

I asked about any anxiety or worry regarding her problem or anything else, she replied that she doesn’t worry about anything. Her tone was totally frivolous. Even with such a severe kind of disease, she was least bothered. Whatever I asked she replied in a frivolous (non serious) tone. She was willing to take another test for diagnosis.

Analysis: While she was giving her case I could not go beyond Belladonna because of her casual approach. Through out her case taking she told everything in a normal way. She was not anxious or afraid of her illness. Her anger also subsided quickly as we see in belladonna. She herself asked for another test i.e. her desire for light. So at the first instance she was belladonna.


23.10.07 Bell 30 – she was advised to stop taking allopathy.
30.10.07 No relief. Bell 200
6.11.07 Little relief.
13.11.07 Pain with loose stool 2-3 times a day. Bell 200 repeated.
2.11.07 Better
27.11.07 Better
4.12.07 Better
5.2.08 Totally relieved

Now she has no pain in abdomen, no pus and blood in stool. She is completely fine. Her headache was also cured.

It is advised not to take any medicine on your own by reading the treated cases.
