Inflammatory bowel disease must not be taken for granted. It’s more serious than it sounds but there are many ways to deal with it other than purely drugs alone.

It includes two conditions called Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis. Both have problems in the small intestines where it becomes inflamed and irritated. Supposedly, our small intestines would have a smooth and pink lining inside the mucosal.
