Meditation can help with stomach problems and ulcers by unlocking a deep state of rest within the body, allowing restoration of the natural balance of the immune system. It also increases blood flow which aids healing. Meditation has also been clinically shown to reduce the incidence and perception of pain, which can make it very useful for sufferers of gastrointestinal conditions.

- The problem
Ulcerative Colitis can affect anybody but it is more likely to strike younger people between 15-25.
It’s a particularly cruel and unpleasant condition which causes pain, bleeding and urgent diarrhea as well as a host of other symptoms including fatigue, inflammation of the joints, anaemia and weight loss.
It can take its toll both emotionally and physically and can often impact work and relationships.
Nobody knows what causes ulcerative colitis for sure, but it’s thought to be a combination of factors including genetic makeup, an abnormal reaction in the digestive system and a trigger like stress, a virus or hormone fluctuations after giving birth.
The one major trigger we can manage is stress, and if we do so, we will be in much better shape to reduce the frequency and severity of flares.
There is no cure for ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s and many sufferers become subject to a life-time of taking medications with increasing ferocity and serious side effects to try and keep the disease under control.
