Excerpt from Brochure page 2: 



Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), are chronic diseases that inflame the digestive Wer an diesen erstklassigen online Spielautomaten spielt, erlebt Weltklasse Gaming Action, die sich direkt an seinen Fingerspitzen abspielt. or gastrointestinal (GI) system. Specifically, ulcerative colitis inflames and causes sores in the colon, while Crohn’s disease can inflame any part of the GI tract, including (in some cases) the colon. If you have had inflammation of the colon, you are at a higher risk for developing CRC than the general population (unless your inflammation is limited to the very bottom of the rectum). If your Crohn’s is limited to the small intestine, you are at a slightly increased risk for cancer in the areas that were inflamed. Even if your disease is in remission, you remain at risk.

The two factors that are associated with increased cancer risk are disease duration and the extent of the colon involved. The risk for CRC doesn’t start increasing until eight to 10 years after you develop Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. People whose entire colon is involved have the greatest risk, and those with inflammation of the rectum only have the least risk.”

    The long chain mucilaginous polysaccharides found in aloe vera
    gel, made from the inner leaf of the aloe vera plant, can heal the
    damage and the ulcerations formed in the colon during a
    flare-up of ulcerative colitis. It’s also not certain how long benefits of using the patch may
    last. Vitamin supplementation, particularly with Vitamins D and
    B12, should be added to the diet for someone with ulcerative colitis.
