Inflammatory Bowl Disease

Some research indicates that the outcome of Inflammatory Bowl Disease can be improved with the use of Yunnan Baiyao.  It was shown that the herbs can mediate the inflammatory response by suppressing lymphocyte growth and pro-inflammatory cytokine expression.  Yunnan Baiyao can also promote intestinal epithelial wound-healing and repair, making it a viable alternative option in treating IBD.  It may be considered as a stand alone treatment or used in addition to medications in cases of IBD, Crohn's disease, or some colitis.
