Welcome to Bowel Disease UK, our small (but mighty) charity which is focussed on raising much needed funds for research into Bowel cancer, Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. We current have some really exciting research going on looking into the amazing benefits of Artesunate, sweet wormwood extract, in improving the lives of people with bowel cancer and Crohn’s disease. Read all about it over on our research page.
Crohn's Disease, also known as regional enteritis, is an inflammatory disease of the intestines that affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus, causing a wide variety of symptoms.
It primarily causes abdominal pain, diarrhoea (which may be bloody if inflammation is at its worst), vomiting or weight loss but may also cause complications outside the gastointestinal tract such as skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, fatigue and lack of concentration.
