THE DOCTOR SAYS Colitis Is Traced To Emotional Acts Are you one of the growing number of persons,who has an irritable bowel? Som.) doctors call if. mucous colitis or spastic colitis. But no matter" what they call it, it can make you pretty uncom fortable. Many a so-called stomach-ache or bout of griping pains is due to an irritable bowel. These pains shift around in the abdomen and tend to come in intermittent spasms. Some of these spasms may make you double-up with pain. Within a few mhiutes or a few hours you may pass some gas or a thin formed or watery stool and this always gives temporary relief. This disease is as common as the emotional tension that is' its underlying cause. Just about ev erybody has had rt at one time or another. In its chronic persistent form the lower bowel becomes so resentful that it pours out a large amount of mucus. The food that is eaten is passed through the digestive tract so fast that digestion is not complete and the victim loses weight. A vicious cycle is set up in that the pain, bloating, and abdominal distress have a bad effect on one's disposition. Emotfonal tension mounts, tempei's flare up and you are off on another round of spasms. Treatments must aim at breaking this cycle by soothing the nerves and soothing the colon. First of all it is important for the victim to know that there is no connection between this disease and ulcerative colitis or cancer. It may, however, be necessary to make sure that there isn't a chronic. dysentery due to ameba that will keep the trouble going until all the amcbas are cleaned out. Every effort must then be made to resolve any stressful situations that may be aggravating the trouble. This is often the hardest part of the treatment. Meanwhile, you cannot neglect the bowel itself. All laxatives must be avoided and for a while at least laxative foods such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, pickles, jams, and spices must be omitted from the diet. Skimmed milk, cheese, well-cooked meat, eggs, ci 'ackers, and bread or toast should constitute the main ele ments of the diet. Weak tea should be substituted for coffee. Some drugs such as barbiturates may help soothe both the nerves and the bowel. They should be taken for a short period only and not without strict medical supervision because they are habjt- formrng. If, as a result of treatment, you find that you have become constipated you should use an enema of eight ounces of plain warm water held for at least five minutes before passing. In addition you should cautiously add a small portion of cooked green vegetable or cooked fruit to your daily diet. The amount can be gradually increased as you continue to improve but at the first sign of a recurrence of spasms go back to a bland diet. Some people have had to follow a rigid diet for years to keep the spasms under control because of a difficult situation at home or at work that cannot be readily resolved. That's why, if you can't learn to control your emotions as an adult, it is doubly important that you seek help in teaching your children to control theirs. By WAYNE 0.
