In Chinese medicine, there is a healing recipe that includes six different herbs called Chang-An-Shuan. It has been shown that the inflammation of stomach lining in patients with IBD and colitis significantly reduces when they consume Chang-An-Shuan in quantities of five grams orally. Those who suffer from these gastric symptoms should also avoid eating foods such as nuts and seeds. Also stick to a diet that is low in levels of residue in order to combat any diarrhea symptoms.
