Ulcerative Colitis & Epilepsy


I've noticed that a couple of people have both Ulcerative Colitis + Epilepsy. This includes me too.

I was just wondering if the two could be linked in any way ? Maybe the medication for colitis can trigger seizures ??

What's your thoughts ?

I'm sure that dogtorj would opine that they are related to a common problem with diet/food intolerance (see post #12).

I believe they are very much related.
Inflammation and toxicity are two very important health problems that cause many other disorders. Nutrition is the core tool to create balance in underlying biological processes. It is the most important tool you have to improve your health.
