Massage Therapy for Chronic Diarrhea and Chronic Enteritis
Some of the causes of chronic diarrhoea and chronic enteritis include :
Coeliac disease – which reduces the intestine's ability to absorb food.
Chronic constipation – the bowel is blocked by hard, impacted faeces but some liquids manage to seep past the blockage. This condition, called 'spurious' or 'overflow' diarrhoea, is more common in the elderly.
Hormone disorders – such as diabetes or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland).
Cancer – such as bowel cancer.
Inflammatory bowel disease – including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
Irritable bowel syndrome – symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, and alternating constipation and diarrhoea.
Lactose intolerance – the inability to digest the milk sugar lactose.
Medications – including antibiotics, antacids that contain magnesium, laxatives, and drugs for treating hypertension (high blood pressure) and arthritis.
